Via The Guardian: Jean-Marie Le Pen suggests Ebola as solution to global population explosion. This is the kind of thing that gives senile dementia a bad name. Excerpt:
Jean-Marie Le Pen, founder of France's far-right Front National, has suggested the deadly virus Ebola could solve the global "population explosion" and by extension Europe's "immigration problem".
At a cocktail party before an election rally in Marseille on Tuesday evening, just days before the European elections in which the FN is leading the polls in France, Le Pen spoke of the "demographic explosion" in the world.
"Monseigneur Ebola could sort that out in three months," he said in front of journalists. Later, addressing supporters, Le Pen, 85, said he feared the French population risked being "replaced … by immigrants".
"In our country and in all Europe, we have known a cataclysmic phenomenon – a migratory invasion that, my friends, we are seeing only the beginning of today." Le Pen, who is standing as MEP for the south-east seat, added:
"This massive immigration risks producing a real replacement of populations if we don't arrive in power soon enough to put an end to the politics of decadence that has been followed for decades."
