    One of calais' biggest refugee camps has been set on fire

    Where are you getting this from

    Is there a fire at the refugee camp? You earlier called on people in this thread not to speculate

    Speculating doesnt really entail randomly declaring things on fire

    I think his implication is quite clearly that someone deliberately set a fire

    Insofar as Calais can be fine

    And it seems like all is dying, and would leave the world to mourn

    There is a large extreme-right contingent in France.

    Like, nazis-in-all-but-name, and they get enough votes each election to be considered a legitimate party.

    This is oil on a fire in one of the more flammable countries out there.

    When I went to Paris this past summer I was a little shocked to see soldiers in full fatigues with assault rifles patrolling the grounds of the Louvre. I certainly have a better understanding of why that is...

    I met someone on steam who straight up said that the migrants should all be deported because they are intellectually inferior and immoral, and destroying white culture which is the last bastion of civilization

    yeah. disturbing.

    Poland just had a far right demonstration of 25k to 50K yesterday, burning the EU flag and claiming Poland for Poland.

    However many have died tonight, shit is going to hit the fan.

    We're talking about France, not America.

    Sorry, trying to find any levity I can in this disaster.

    Everywhere across Europe there are groups with extreme views on migrants.

    I'm not sure its good to talk about that right now though or say one place is worst than others.

    well, it's going to be very relevant very soon as this will empower them(and in turn empower groups like ISIS)

    I raised a glass in salute to France earlier.

    My thoughts are with the the people of Paris.

    My hope is that someday we will never have to face a tragedy like this again as a species.

    News is now reporting that the Bataclan concert hall was apparently known as a possible target for attacks and some month ago some suspects claimed to be planning an attack on it because the owners are jewish.

    the right-wing punditsphere being particularly vile right now certainly isn't helping things.

    i choose to believe the right-wing punditsphere exists only as a fictional bad guy entity from a video game, like the evil faction in Pokemon.

    Im holding off believing anything being reported right now. Doesn't quite jive that the president would visit the scene, make a statement and not include a reference to officers killed.

    French sites are not reporting on this and it is not part of the official speech which was released

    Maybe he actually did say this but it would be a really dumb choice of words for historical reasons

    He said that when he visited the Bataclan. On his defense, "impitoyable" is much less harsh than "pitiless".
