"Consequence, Not Cause"

That's the phrase used to describe the rise of Front National in France, a political party which is opposed to  current French immigration policies.

...The French journalist and author Eric Zemmour told the BBC parties the Front National is “not a cause, it is a consequence.” He added, “People vote for the FN to say to their elites, ‘Stop doing what you are doing!’ But they never do.”...

Sounds kinda familiar.

“If Europe is getting more immigrants than its voters want,” Weekly Standard senior editor Christopher Caldwell wrote, “this is a good indication its democracy is malfunctioning.”...

Huh.  Who would have guessed?
