The election of “the avowed socialist in France” François Hollande Sunday night “means that France is gone,” says talk radio host Rush Limbaugh.

Limbaugh says the French have announced austerity is over with this recent election. Hollande has already promised to raise taxes on the top one percent by 75 percent, and the French elite are making plans to move to Great Britain.

“Unemployment in France is higher than 14 percent but the thing is it’s constant . . . it’s accepted,” Limbaugh said Monday.

“It is the norm. There are more people on the take than there are producing and those people came out in greater numbers and don’t think Obama’s not noticing that.”

Limbaugh said he is certain that we are headed in the same direction as France.

“I don’t know [if the French election] means anything for the United States,” Limbaugh said. “There is no way anybody could extrapolate to the extent that we are France. I’ve never heard that connection made . . . but we’re trending that direction. There’s no question about that.”

Hollande defeated French President Nicolas Sarkozy Sunday night who had served as president of France since 2007.
