A video depicting a riot comprised of mostly Congolese immigrants has recently surfaced on the internet:
Approximately 20% of the French population are either immigrants or a child of an immigrant, with Île-de-France (Greater Paris) housing 40% of the immigrant population. Although a little less than half of France’s immigrants are Europeans, mostly from Portugal or the UK, nearly 30% of France’s immigrants are from the Maghreb region, and over 10% from Sub-Saharan Africa (including Congo).
In the video above, the Congolese populace are clearly unhappy with the state of affairs in Paris, France. This is not the first time refugees have treated France with disdain In 2015, thousands of migrants chose to camp in squalid conditions in Calais, attempting to reach Britain despite the urging of interior minister Bernard Cazeneuve for the refugees to find asylum in France. Out of the 4 million Syrian refugees who have fled their native country in 2011, only 7,000 have received asylum in France.
This could be for a variety of reasons. The unemployment rate in France is at 10% and shows no sign of decreasing, and refugees tend to be picky regarding where they settle to begin a new life. The German Federal Minister of the Interior, Dr. Thomas de Maizière, has offered input on the situation, stating that “in the past [refugee distribution] was not really a problem because the refugees were initially grateful to be in Germany, and were happy to distribute.” However, de Maizière notes that many refugees are now wanting to assign themselves to Germany.
Europe is witnessing a massive inundation unparalleled since World War II, the majority hailing from countries in the Middle East and North Africa. When refugees hailing from such countries choose to disrespect the countries to which they are being allocated to, flames of nationalism are kindled and the multiculturalist theory behind the radical inclusion of minorities into Western civilization begins to be questioned by native Europeans.
