Nicolas “Racaille” Sarkozy is suddenly the word police

What a surprise: Former French President Nicolas Sarkozy, who once called a socially and economically isolated segment of his citizenry racaille (“scum” / “riff-raff”) when he was Interior Minister, finds it “appalling” and disruptive to “national unity” that Prime Minister Valls would suggest there is an “ethnic and social apartheid” in France.

It’s almost like politicians who employ apartheid-style rhetoric to marginalize and disenfranchise members of their own populace do not appreciate comparisons to (now politically toxic) stratified socio-political systems like apartheid.
