While we argue about building a big, beautiful wall on the Mexcian border (for which all advocates are labeled “racists”), Paris is building a big beautiful wall around the Eiffel Tower. Not to stop Mexicans. Not to stop annoying RomCom buffs. No, they’re building a wall to stop terrorism. Considering some other French ideas to prevent the exploding Muslims have blown up (see France Tries Combatting Terrorism By Opening ‘De-Radicalization’ Schools and France Fights Islam by Banning Burkinis), why not build a wall?
Paris is spending 20 million euros ($22 million) to build a protective barrier around the Eiffel Tower to replace temporary structures that were put up after a series of terror attacks.
“Sadly, the risk of terrorism hasn’t gone away,” deputy mayor Jean-François Martins said at a Paris press conference. “It’s not a wall, it’s an aesthetic perimeter.”
Martins wouldn’t confirm a report in Thursday’s Le Parisien newspaper that a clear glass structure would be built around the tower’s esplanade. The form the new structure takes will depend on solutions proposed in response to the city’s call for tenders, he said.
First: It’s not a wall, it’s an aesthetic perimeter?
Now, here’s the maddening thing. Everyone in the world seems to have an opinion about America wanting to build a wall. Everyone in the world seems to have an opinion about our country wanting to deter terrorism. That opinion? We’re all racists who hate immigrants and probably puppies too. Walls have become the new symbol of hate. Also, they work.
So what is Paris doing with their wall if not erecting boundaries between people who just want to
rape and decapitate understand each other more? Building an wall aesthetic perimeter to fight terrorism flies in the burka’ed face of conventional social theory, no?
Here’s an awkward question: who is causing the terrorism in Paris for which this tall, stiff, flat structure which is totally NOT a wall, is being built?
It all sure does smell like Islamophobia to me. Actually, it smells like common sense. Read Dear PC Leftists: Actually, ‘Islamophobia’ is an Entirely Logical ‘Phobia.’ Though in honor of the French, maybe we should rename Islamophobia. Call it “Fear of being blown to bits by barbarians perpetually stuck in the stone age.” Maybe it’s too long. I’ll acronym it later.
In other news, walls work.
