Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal isn’t backing down.
While major networks including Fox and CNN are downplaying reports of “no-go zones” in Europe, where governments have turned over effective control of local populations to criminal gangs or Islamic clerics imposing Sharia law, Jindal is pushing his own warnings even further.
Not only do such areas exist in Europe, he said in a Tuesday radio interview with Tony Perkins on Family Research Council’s “Washington Watch, but the United States could soon be seeing “no-go zones” of its own if Muslim immigrants are unwilling to fully assimilate into American culture.
“We must demand and insist on assimilation and integration for those who want to come into our country,” Jindal told Perkins.
“If you don’t want to be an American, don’t come to America.”
Denials from European governments that “no-go zones” exist have gotten major play in the mainstream media as well as liberal news outlets, but they’re just word games, Jindal said. The reality is that Muslim immigrants in Europe have established a form of Sharia law in immigrant enclaves, he said.
And if the United States isn’t careful, the same thing will happen here, Jindal said.
“If they want to come here and they want to set up their own culture and values that’s not immigration … That’s really invasion if you’re honest about it,” he said.
Here is some of the transcript via Buzzfeed:
“But what is not acceptable and what you’ve seen in Europe and this is a very serious particular threat, you’ve got those that do want to try to impose a form of sharia law. And sharia law is antithetical, mutually exclusive of freedom, in treating women as first-class citizens, it is antithetical to the values we hold dear. And you see, third, forth generation immigrants in the U.K., France, in other places in Europe that don’t consider themselves part of those societies and that’s very dangerous.”
“One of the great things about America is it doesn’t matter if you were here in the first five minutes or a hundred years. We have folks who come here, want to be Americans, they join our military, they start companies, they work to create a better community. And that’s wonderful.”
“But what’s not acceptable is people that want to come and conquer us. That’s not immigration, by the way, that’s colonization. If someone wants to come here and change our fundamental culture and our values. If they want to come here and they want to set up their own culture and values that’s not immigration, that’s really invasion if you’re honest about it. Of course, the politically correct crowd when you say things like they’ll call you racist but this is a particular threat we face. And if we’re not serious about this we’re going to see more lone wolf actors. We’re gonna see more folks come into our country just like you’ve seen in other countries — the horrific shootings in Paris.”
