Hello, all of you who may wonder what it’s like to live in France.
Just a quick note to remind you that nearly half the people who voted today did not vote for Nicolas Sarkozy.
Which means that a measurable proportion of the French do not want to hear about eugenics, do not want genetic material filed in governmental offices, do not want to let illegal immigrants condemned to death in their countries be sent back for economical reasons.
A sizeable proportion of us has not yet forgotten that the Declaration of Human Rights was written here.
Many of us do not want to live in a police state.
Today a President was elected, democratically, and we should abide to this decision, which shows that we are indeed a democracy. But I refuse to sit back and enjoy the tension.
I am not sure this country is safe for people who are not white, clean people. And I fear what the future holds for us, notwithstanding our new President’s consensual talk this evening that says that he’ll be at the side of all those, the weak and he poor and the sick, who suffer in the whole world.
Yeah, right. Send them back on a plane, why don’t you.
