In EUtopia, monkey-chanting is a form of populism they keep trying to hide:
A French politician has quit of the Socialist Party after he was criticised for saying there were too many black players on the national football team.Typical leftist – remember that it isn’t what people do or say, it’s how it seems. That must be why it took lefties a month and a half to get worked up about this – not because it’s basically a nutty PC assault on a guy who was trying to say that white kids are lazy, (as if you could make that assumption in a place where your Doctor is still most likely to be white,) but that it had to be done to prop a flagging political campaign.
Georges Freche, of the southern Languedoc-Roussillon region, said today he was withdrawing from the party for three or four months to avoid hurting Socialist Segolene Royal’s chances in upcoming presidential elections.
“I do not want to complicate her fight, which will be very tough,” he said. Royal and rival Nicolas Sarkozy, of the ruling conservative party, are now the front-runners in the April and May vote.

First, you have to imagine that American pay attention to politics in France to begin with before you realize that Pancho paints everyone he detests with the same broad brush. It’s bad enough that he recycles his very poorly drawn caricatures, but he seems have made a career out of repeating the same anti-American nonsense.
...” Trust me. I’ve changed, just like Sarkozy”...
French international policy wiz, Ségolène Royal wants to impose meaningless regime change from beyond on a nation that isn’t a threat to anyone other than to the collective French ego.
Canada issued a highly unusual public rebuke to Royal after she expressed sympathy with the idea of independence for Canada's French-speaking Quebec province -- at least the third foreign policy controversy to dog her bid for president.I just love their attitude imagining that there’s some kind of hidden “struggle” there for non-Canadians to provoke or make Canadian lives difficult and divisive over. The Irony is that they already have under de Gaulle who used his intelligence service to help make Canada an uncertain and angry place which nearly drowned in Meech Lake.
Royal, attacked by critics as a political lightweight, has trailed Sarkozy since the interior minister accepted his centre-right party's nomination at a January 14 congress at which he courted voters drawn to Royal's more consensual image.
That’s okay – it’s just called a “gaffe” if it comes out of the mouth of a “well meaning” leftist who will spout on and on about peace, social solidarity, and all manner of other mumbo-jumbo while they can’t recognize the chaos they cause. Why Canada? Because Canadians are generally more civilized than anyone in the European political class. I’m sure they see Canadian decency as a form of passivity, and know that they’ll ignore nutty Europeans playing to the slobs back home.
It seems to show a persistent trend. Leftist can act out their revolutionary fantasies on anyone who will ignore them and not do the same to them. It explains why they’ve done so much to work their way into any social institution which cares for the weakest members in the society they did so much to wreck, and where they can create an army of people dependant on them.
Loïs est intérimaire. Autant dire qu'il n'est pas. Alors il rêve d'être. C'est-à-dire qu'il rêve d'être une star, une star de cinema. Loïs, un mytho de plus ? Ce qui est certain, c'est que le flingue qu'il tient entre les mains, c'est pas du cinema. Certes, à vingt ans, Loïs est prêt à tout pour devenir une star, mais de là à jouer du pistolet ?! Emporté par le flot d'incroyables évenements, notre heros aura pourtant le temps de s'essayer à l'amour avec Clarisse, à l'amitie avec Henri et à la vie avec la vie.
"Roman total" à la fois social et d'apprentissage, psychologique et sentimental, policier et historique, Les Yeux plus gros que l'Amérique est une œuvre euphorique, dechirante, délirante, poétique. Uppercutante. Bertrand Latour est né et mourra écrivain, même si bien sûr il espère secrètement ne jamais mourir. Il passe ses journées à faire de revigorants allers-retours entre des métiers alimentaires et son clavier d'ordinateur. Il est l'auteur de Comme un beau grand slow collé (Denoël) salué par quelques critiques littéraires, et non des moindres, avec lesquels il n'avait aucune sorte d'accointance ...
Editions Underbahn : 1984 de George Orwell, traduit en langue vietnamienne par Dang Phu'o'ng-Nghi, préfacé en français par Bertrand Latour (l'auteur de Les yeux plus gros que l'Amérique à paraître chez Flammarion le 12 janvier 2007).
Extrait de la préface:
Comment pourra-t-on ne serait-ce qu’espérer comprendre que, lors de la farce présidentielle de 2002, non seulement le candidat le mieux placé à gauche – premier ministre sortant – était un ancien communiste tendance trotskyste, mais qu’en plus, la France s’unit comme un seul homme en un « front républicain » où les marxistes les plus viscéraux et orthodoxes défilèrent bras dessus, bras dessous avec l’homme politique français moyen ? Comment pourra-t-on ne serait-ce que se dire à voix basse que tous les enfants du rock et de Mai 68 sans exception, TF1 et Guignols De L’Info en tête, se livrèrent spontanément et sans concertation à une telle propagande nauséeuse, matraquant en prime-time leur Évangile Selon Saint-Mitterrand avec un enthousiasme stakhanoviste qui restera dans l’Histoire, distribuant chaque soir cartons rouges aux fachos, lauriers verts aux copains, de lynchages en léchages médiatiques ? Ah, il faut les avoir vus, ces catéchisateurs gauchisants des années 80, 90 et 2000, plus poudrés que La Pompadour par les laquais du backstage et si férus de droits de l’homme, mais stipendiés le trente de chaque mois par ceux-là mêmes qu’ils feignaient de stigmatiser depuis vingt-neuf jours…

Amanda Lear, a loopy, aged out, “talent” has been awarded the Chevalier dans l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. Lear, who has been dining for decades on the public suspicion that she is actually in part a he, has also been assumed by the natives to be an “international talent” – which the possible crypto-tranny clearly isn’t.
Arts and Letters – I guess it’s all about the company you keep. Below you’ll find one of her fine opus’, clearly befitting someone who’s joining the likes of Fairouz, Anthony Burgess, and the like.
Especially amusing is this persistent obsession with Orders, Knighthoods, and other clap-trappings of monarchy in a nation that at last check still says “republic” on the label, as well as all over the place just in case you forgot.

This baffling condition sounds like something nearly every addled-brained lefty Manhattanite suffers from: She lives in Bristol and works in Bath. But Louise Clarke became convinced she was French. A rare brain disorder left the 30-year-old recruitment consultant believing she was living in Paris. She started speaking French all the time, rang her friends to invite them to stay in the French capital - and asked to eat croissants. She was also plagued by migraines and hallucinations and ended up so confused that her worried family took her to hospital. After months of tests, she became one of only 200 people in the world to be diagnosed with Susac's Syndrome. The disorder is thought to be brought on by stress and affects the brain, ears and eyes, mainly among young women. In Miss Clarke's case, it appears to have brought back memories from when she was living in France four years ago and confused them with the present. "It might sound funny to others, but suddenly thinking you are French is terrifying," she said. In October 2004, she began to become confused, disorientated and suffered cloudy vision. "It started with migraines and hallucinations," she said.

If Iraq was a disaster then, if it is a disaster now, God forbid that it is anybody's fault but Bush's — and America's
The United States sanctioned Iraq for 10 years, making a country as rich as Western Europe even poorer than African nations, with millions of children starving to death.It's about time this myth be put to rest once and for all, although you can rest assured that the (self-serving) anti-Americanism prevalent throughout the world will prevent it from being done away with.
Critics, in America as well as abroad, who are constantly berating American conservatives for doing something as moronic as believing the administration of George W. Bush, treat as Holy Writ facts and figures that were provided by the "information" ministry of Saddam Hussein. While "millions" of poor Iraqi babies were supposed to be starving to death, furthermore, Saddam built 80 palaces, his sons collected hundreds of luxury cars, and the family hoarded millions of dollars of cash in said palaces. This, thanks to those paragons of wisdom, fairness, and the search for a better world — Russia, France, Germany, and, yes, China — who, along with the United Nations, were at the forefront of countries nourishing Saddam's (personal) coffers through the oil-for-food scandal. (They were also the nations joining in the calls for Bush to refrain from invading Iraq and, more recently, have been hounding him to admit his untold number of errors, sins, and failings in Iraq.)
While the building of Saddam's personal palaces was proceeding, the Baghdad despot, who was supposedly concerned with the welfare of his country's babies (as well as its other citizens), had his thugs scouring Kurdistan to conduct mass killings, including that of pregnant women. But if Iraq was a disaster then, if it is a disaster now, God forbid that it is anybody's fault but Bush's — and America's.
It would be nice if people, nations, and media outlets who are always obsessing with digging up America's alleged sins and mistakes would look around at the surrounding cast once in a while — not least those (self-servingly) pointing their fingers at America with the loudest expressions of outrage.
A BBC radio producer reflects on the momentary interruption of the perfunctory anti-American call-and-response chanting by Debbie Schlussel:
I suppose your average right-winger doesn't really listen to the BBC.Apart from doing something akin to monitoring enemy broadcasts, no we don't. And it's not just because a quarter of their output is pointed at one sort of unbalanced, often factually reaching obsession with the US and has this "have you stopped beating your wife?" air about it.
Personally, I find it completely agreeable at this point to ask Europeans, and the various cultures around them that they have a media and economic stranglehold over to continually justify their opinions, their actions, and even their mere existence that they reserve for les étatsuniens. It might be the first time they ever encounter something called “diversity of opinion!”The Fuse is Lit (No Pasaran!)

"I believe that forgiving them is God's function. Our job is simply to arrange the meeting."
- Norman Schwarzkopf
Conservative American columnist Debbie Schlussel appeared on the BBC World Service’s “World (Don’t) Have Your Say” program. With the usual ever vigilant love of tolerance and an open feeling for a broad range of opnions, callers’ first instinct was to ask to silence her or get her off the air. Who can take these critics seriously? In the face of great challenge the best they can come up with is more hyperventilating.
Like everything else as deranged as these useless criticisms of Americans and America do, they never, NEVER ask what Russia does, or China, or Pakistan, or India, or what Europe does for that matter. Those “concerned” about the US’ image (which is to say that they do their best to hack at it themselves) have to offer is limited, one thinks of the aptly named “Chewbacca defense”.
Euro-peevishness on parade... Useful, truly.

The latest breakthrough has come from an unlikely place. François Bayrou proposed letting every company, whatever the size, hire 2 new employees at no administrative cost to the employer which would be due to the government. The concept is a sound, inexpensive one-time economic stimulus that would result in rehirings of parasitic collectors of unemployment who are costly to the business owener, and an overall reduction of the burden placed on public welfare.
So what's the first thing people asked about it? What about the Lost Tax Revenue?!?
