France ready to start expulsions, roundups of Gypsies | cleveland.com
How soon they forget, eh?
In the current crisis there is no work for many Roma, and no welfare, they are reduced to living in makeshift camps, many dont have enough money to get back to thier homeland the Govt. is offering them free flights and 300 euros
Well, I am no expert on the immigration of Europeans, etc. but "rounding people up and sending them away" certainly sounds familiar. Was gypsies the last time too, huh?
France ought to do much, much better. I'm cancelling my Chanel order in protest.
The Gypsies are the only ethnic group that I am strongly in favor of complete extermination.
Jos would you feel the same if we did this to illegal Mexican immigrants?
You have never seen how they treat their African refugees have you? It's like a Jewish ghetto out of Nazi Germany. France is the hell hole of Europe, just don't tell the socialist nut cases that live there that though as they consider themselves morally superior to Americans and the rest of the world.
They persecute Jews too:
is that because you believe that "all life is precious"?
is this a case of "pre-birth abortion is MURDER"
but POST-birth abortion is just fine?
Oh please don't scream Holocaust comparisons. Reasons:
(1) The Jews and Gypsies were NOT illegal immigrants to Germany and German occupied territory.
(2) They were not rounded up and deport back to their home country, rather they were rounded up made slaves and ultimately killed.
(3) In the case of the Jews as a whole they weren't a burden on the state.
(4) Jews as far as occupied Russia were getting rounded up sent further into German occupied areas for extermination.
(5) They Jews and Gypsies weren't sent on confortable airplanes, rather they were packed in cargo trains like cattle, in smoltering heat, with no food or water or even a place to rest their heads!
(6) The Jews and Gypsies had everything taken from them (here they are given money)
Here the Gypsie illegal immigrant are getting deported to their home country, via confortable airplanes, given money no less, because they have become substantial burdens on the State in a poor French economy.
The comparison to the Holocaust is a disingenious straw man!
Now you shown the Frogs, go get them!
In other words they ethnic cleanse them and give them $200 each, how kind.
You can say whatever what you like but the fact remains that is what it is, systematic government endorsed ethnic cleansing:
France defends its expulsion of Gypsies

FRANCE has been forced on to the defensive in Europe amid fears its decision to eliminate Gypsy camps - and forcibly deport foreign-born Roma people - will reignite xenophobia and violence.
Flights to Romania, repatriating Roma people in France without permits, began yesterday after the President, Nicolas Sarkozy, ordered 300 camps to be demolished by the end of October. So far, 51 have been dismantled.
A charter flight to Bucharest was to leave later in the day from the central city of Lyon with 73 Roma aboard, Immigration Ministry officials said. Fourteen others were repatriated to Romania aboard a commercial flight from the Paris region earlier in the day, the officials said, adding that another Romania-bound repatriation flight was expected today.

The Roma received a payment of €300 ($427) for each adult and €100 a child as an incentive to a peaceful, voluntary repatriation.
Mr Sarkozy, facing plummeting approval ratings and a tight re-election campaign in 2012, pledged to eliminate the camps in a populist bid to restore his government's credibility on law and order after a wave of summer violence, which left young Roma travellers dead after confrontations with police.
A riot in the south-eastern city of Grenoble was seized on by Mr Sarkozy's Interior Minister, Brice Hortefeux, last month to launch a high-profile assault on street crime, renewing attention on immigration in a climate of austerity and rising unemployment.
The controversial decision has been condemned by human rights groups who insist it stigmatises one ethnic group solely to harness right-wing voter support.
But Mr Sarkozy has also been criticised from within his own centre-right UMP party. One colleague, Jean-Pierre Grand, described the strategy as being akin to the round-up of Jews during World War II.
The Romanian Foreign Minister, Teodor Baconschi, warned of the social implications of the crackdown: ''I am worried about the risks of populism and xenophobic reactions in a context of economic crisis.''
Mr Baconschi, who is a former ambassador to France, called for a joint France-Romanian approach to resolve the problem, clearly hinting at the political nature of the policy by asking that it be discussed in a climate free of ''artificial election fever''.
The Council of Europe estimate that two-thirds of the Roma who have been sent back to Bucharest with financial incentives eventually drift back to France. About 15,000 Roma people are believed to live in France although the government states that it repatriated 10,000 illegal immigrants last year.
Under EU citizenship rules, Roma people have the right to move to France but must have work permits to stay for longer than three months.
The French government has signalled it plans to repatriate up to 700 people by the end of the month.

The gypsies are not in France illegally. All Europeans can move freely throughout the EU, you racist dumbass.
