Billy Beck over at Two–Four runs a Guardian story today that says in part:

“The French president, Jacques Chirac, woke up today to calls for a general election or dramatic cabinet shake-up after his centre-right government’s overwhelming defeat by the left in yesterday’s regional elections.

The resurgent Socialist party, combining forces with the Communists and the Greens, won 20 out of mainland France’s 22 regions, holding on to the eight it already ran and conquering 12 others.'”

Billy then goes on to say:

This is reaction..  …  ..Try to understand: these people are intent on preserving a government which is going to take care of them. They will not stand for a government that even hints at the idea that they will have to take care of themselves. The hard fact that it is simply not economically practicable (see von Mises — right now) will not dissuade them because they do not care for reality. They will persist in trying to find a way to make it work.

While I’m sure that is some of it (And Billy does a good job of describing the situation, RTWT)… I wonder a bit if there isn’t something even more sinister at work, here.. and I wonder too, at the result of it all, particularly for us here in the States.

Look at the lists of people defended by the French lawyer who is taking up Saddam’s case, both here, and here.

I look at those lists and can’t help but wonder a bit about this recent victory of the socialists in France… if it isn’t in fact a victory by the Islamofacists.  The connections between the far left and the Islamofacists is long known and undeniable. We know, for example, AlQuieda were involved in re-shaping the election in Spain, toward the socialists.

I don’t know the answer to these questions, but my gut tells me that we should start paying attention to where the socialists are getting their political money from, in these ostensibly western nations.  I suspect we’re going to find that a lot of the billions of dollars which went missing in Iraq… and money had from other places and groups by way of OPEC, will show up in the coffers of the socialists.

The ground is shifting, I think, and we’d best be watching our step. I hope I’m wrong about this. But I don’t know I’m not…. and that’s troubling.

Think on this for a moment; Is it an accident that the western countries with the highest percapita population of Ethnic Muslims, are those who lean toward socialism… France, for example, and the UK and Canada?
