Just add muslims: 6 in 10 French citzens no longer feel safe in their own country.
Six out of 10 People in France ‘Don’t Feel Safe Anywhere’

Fearing terror attacks, the majority of people in France are pessimistic about the nation’s security situation, with six in 10 saying they no longer feel safe anywhere according to an IFOP-FIDUCIAL poll.

The survey found that 93 per cent of French believe the threat of more terror attacks is high, and 71 per cent feel the security situation in France has got worse over the last five years.

More broadly, 59 per cent of those polled said they did not feel safe anywhere, with almost one in four (24 per cent) opting to “strongly agree” with the statement.

Reflecting the insecurity respondents said they felt, 69 per cent think the police and gendarmerie are understaffed, and the survey found the French overwhelmingly have a positive view of law enforcement.

The vast majority of respondents (88 per cent) believe France should deport foreigners sentenced to prison for serious offenses, and 84 per cent want the country to create more prison places.

A slight majority (55 per cent) would like to see France exit the European Union’s open borders Schengen zone.

With security a major issue in this year’s presidential elections, the survey found Marine Le Pen was judged the candidate with the best policies in both keeping property and people safe (32 per cent) and in the fight against terror (35 per cent).

1. Everyday I see people pissing & moaning about "fake news"

and yet Breitbart is linked to here regularly. If The Times is biased fake news..then Brietbart is part-n-parcel the same exact thing. Which is hilarious if you think about it. It basically boils down to people only believing their ideologically friendly media. Thus everyone who says FAKE NEWS then links to a biased media outlet


Just my rumination. As for the French feeling unsafe. Who knows, that's on them. I'm feeling safe here in kick-ass America. We'll be fine. We always are.
