Rising intolerance and anti-Semitism have reached the point when “it feels like Nazi Germany,” pop icon Madonna said, adding that France, in particular, no longer encourages diversity and freedom.Why should France be "diverse" in the first place? How about Madonna go to China and talk about diversity. Or Japan for that matter. I have said it before and I will say it again, France and the rest of Europe are for the French and those respective natives. France and the rest of those countries are not settler, or nation of non-native immigrants. France belongs first and foremost to the French where they should and ought to be free to be and promote French culture above any and all other who may choose to reside there. That's the general problem with Americans in general. They wander all over the world telling people what their countries should be like. You shoudl have X type of government. And X type of laws and like X,y z types of behavior. We're Americans and we know best. The French people, the natives that is, should tell Madonna to fuck off.
The 56-year-old singer also pointed that France has totally lost its tradition of welcoming diversity and honoring freedom, saying that "anti-Semitism is at an all-time high" in the country.Madonna should find out that a large part of these anti-semitic actions are actually the activities of non-native French (though native French have their own behavior to account for).
The pop icon added that France was once a country “that accepted people of color, and was a place artists escaped to, whether it was Josephine Baker or Charlie Parker."While I'm sure "color" and the associated linked traits are an issue to many French, I think the fact that those non-French that the French have a problem with are the ones who insist on pushing their religion and culture upon the French in their own homeland. I don't recall Josephine Baker running around France in a burka. Did Charlie Parker run around France talking about how it would submit to Sharia? Personally I wouldn't be so welcoming to folks like that in my home either. I wonder if Madonna allows such persons on her personal property. For their differences with French in their politics (decolonialism and racism) folks like James Baldwin actually fit in to a large extent with the dominant home culture and most of the French, even those what disliked black people strongly, would admit that they posed no cultural threat to the French republic. The current issues? Not even remotely the same. I am against colonialism and the threats against native populations by outsiders whether they be in Africa, Asia and, yes, Europe. And I cannot speak ill of those native who object to such threats whether they be in Africa, Asia and yes, Europe.
