It's not the product of a conservative imagination gone wild, as much as you seem to prefer that characterization. Furthermore, it has nothing to do with socialism of any sort. It's simply a recognition of conditions as they exist in parts of France. I have no doubt some of these areas are very benign and placid, just as I also have no doubt some of them do in fact go largely un-policed. I can substantiate this, but I'd rather not get into a source war with ya. Just remember that the car burning and riots within and around those areas were widely reported here when they began years ago by both conservative and liberal media outlets. I know I remember, and the sources were French media sources originally.
You "have no doubt" but are unable to actually cite a single source. I wonder why
