“You are not welcome in this town,” says French Mayor, causing left wing outrage in France as he is filmed evicting illegal alien Muslim squatters from apartments. Left wing media scum call him “vile,” sane people call him a patriot.
UK Daily Mail (h/t Johnny) Robert Menard, a politician linked to the anti-Islamization Front National party in Beziers, is shown marching into an apartment of squatters, surrounded by police, including an armed guard.
Angry that the refugees have allegedly broken in, 62-year-old Mr Menard uses a translator to say: ‘You are not welcome in this town. You came in this apartment breaking the door.’ He adds: ‘You are stealing the water. People are paying for the water, but you are stealing electricity and water. ‘I’m saying it again: you are not welcome in this town.”
The astonished man in his 30s – asks if there is anywhere else he can go, and then says he will leave ‘after one month’. But Mr Menard tells him that he has no interest in people who ‘break in’ to properties, and tells him that he can ‘go where he likes’. Mr Menard then launches into other tirades, one in front of a father, his wife, and at least one young child.
Opponents immediately branded Mr Menard’s intervention as brutal and insensitive because the refugees have no money and nowhere to go.
Aime Couquet, another local politician, accused the mayor of ‘acting illegally.’ Mr Couquet said anti-Muslim invader hatred was being stirred up by Mr Menard, whose town hall magazine was last week used an allegedly misleading photograph to create the impression of a migrant ‘invasion’ under the headline: ‘They are coming’.
RT Earlier this month, another influential French Mayor caused outrage by saying only Christian refugees should be accepted in the country to avoid an influx of ‘disguised terrorists’. Meanwhile, the leader of Ménard’s National Front party, Marine Le Pen, stated earlier this month that immigration is a burden, and that France does not have the resources to help refugees.
But the anti-Muslim immigration comments aren’t only coming from the National Front. Earlier this month, Roanne Mayor Yves Nicolin – a member of former president Nicolas Sarkozy’s Les Républicains party – said that he was only willing to accept Christian asylum seekers.
However, French President Francois Hollande has vowed to accept 24,000 Muslim refugees, stating that it is France’s duty to take in those fleeing wars and persecution. (Even if they aren’t)
