|French skank. Get real bitch, look at yourself. Another hysterical rich bitch on the rag. Paris is crawling with these consensual anti-Establishment loons, (small time hack writers, or sub-advertising types barricaded in their PR firms clutching their Mac keyboards and firing up the masses) who are earning big bucks while lounging around their upscale neighborhoods mouthing globophobe blather and sipping their fair trade coffee.
||Tu pourrais faire passer un TGV dans sa chatte. Non ma salope, mais tu t'es vue? Encore une hystérique, pleine aux as, qui a ses règles. Paris grouille de ces contestataires très consensuels (écrivaillons à la petite semaine, ou sous-pubards terrés dans leurs boîtes de com' agrippés à leurs claviers Mac à partir d'où ils haranguent la populace) qui gagnent très bien leur vie tout en tenant des propos globophobes dignes du café du commerce équitable de leurs quartiers cossus.
France was Europe's fiercest opponent of the U.S.-led war on Iraq. Critics accuse it of seeking to undermine NATO and curb U.S. influence.I thought you weren't supposed to intervene in other countries' internal affairs (?), but then again, what the Hell do I know…
"It looks like France is blocking an alliance consensus," said one diplomat at the 26-nation alliance's headquarters.
"There are 20-plus countries in favor of beginning the training mission inside Iraq next week, two or three are undecided — and there's one country blocking, that's France."
Diplomats said Paris is determined not to hand President Bush a show of international support for his Iraq policy before the Republican Party's pre-election convention, which opens at the end of August.
Germany and Belgium are not enthusiastic about a NATO training mission, but have made it clear they would not stand in the way of the majority.Well, who cares about what the Iraqis want, right? (a NATO presence, freedom from Saddam Hussein, etc…)
A team of NATO experts recently went to Iraq to explore the options, but France believes a second fact-finding mission should now be dispatched and it should report back in September.Oh, right, those fact-finding missions, which those naïve Americans forgot are supposed to — I mean, "will definitely, without the shadow of a doubt" — solve all the world's ills…

Souvenez-vous, les citoyens : There is never anything that the lucid French (or their lucid leaders) do that is anything to get excited about. And there is never anything that the treacherous Americans (or their treacherous leaders) do that is not worth condemning in the harshest language. And (last but not least): any (supposed) sin commited by a lucid Frenchman (by a lucid French leader) is nothing but peanuts compared to the (very real) sins committed by a treacherous American (by a treacherous American leader).
Bearing that in mind, let's listen to a French journalist being interviewed at the Dem convention.

Noblesse Oblige: Expecting French Subjects to Do What the Custodians of State Power Have Decided Is Best for France
In his annual Bastille Day televised interview, the French president, Jacques Chirac, gave a performance illustrating the contradictions of his presidency and the tension in France between Republican values and hierarchical traditions. The style as much as the substance of Chirac's discourse cast light on the dead weight of old French habits and the new opportunities of European integrationwrote the Boston Globe in an editorial entitled Chirac's Hauteur.
…when asked about that possibility in his Bastille Day interview [that French voters will take out their discontent with Chirac's presidency by voting down a European Constitution that he has made a personal cause], Chirac responded with a lordly hauteur that no US president would dare affect. "Honestly," the old Gaullist said, "I have confidence in the French."
Commendable as his position on a referendum may be, Chirac's way of calling on the French to agree with his notion of their best interests is rife with elitist assumptions. His profession of confidence means that he expects subjects of the French state to do what the custodians of state power have decided is best for France.
Chirac was expressing the unquestioned sense of entitlement that lives in members of France's permanent governing class — those alumni of the Ecole Nationale d'Administration, dubbed Enarques, who revolve from one ministerial post to another in pursuit of the ultimate perch now occupied by Chirac. To show that he has no intention of yielding to his primary political rival, Finance Minister Nicolas Sarkozy, Chirac answered a separate question about a dispute between them on defense spending by saying, simply: "I decide, he executes." This was a more explicit version of what he expects the French to do when they vote on the European Constitution. The French call it noblesse oblige.

|Believe it. For French Jews, it's not a bug, it's a feature. This face says it all.

And ask yourself who is arrogant, sanctimonious, and condescending, and who is alienating America's (real) friends and allies (or is in danger of doing so).

Armstrong Accusations Repulsive Not Because of the Accusations' Objectivity (Or Lack Thereof), But Because of the Accusers' Hypocrisy
…there is an uglier manifestation of anti-American feeling: the hounding of Armstrong in the French press over accusations that he is involved in doping, and the repulsive sight of fans not only holding up signs of syringes as he passes but also spitting at him. This is repulsive not because of the objective weight of the accusations, but because of the hypocrisy: the French have been notably uncensorious about their own flawed idols. The same fans who jeer Armstrong cheered the stage victory of Richard Virenque, the villain of the 1998 doping scandal, which nearly ruined the Tour.

A fool's brain digests philosophy into folly, science into superstition, and art into pedantry. Hence University education.And here's one that rings true about the views of Washington decision-makers and how they are perceived by knee-jerk America-bashers and Yankee castigators in general.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who have not got it.
|Americans, you are hated here||Les américains, vous êtes détestés ici|
|After Lance Armstrong's 6th record Tour de France victory yesterday, France2 TV (State television and keeper of the State Party Line©®) presented a poll which ranked Lance as France's 3rd most hated sports personality. The main reason given? 'Because he is American'. Such is the across-the-board anti-Americanism that is currently eating away at France, a country now submerged by obsessional hatred of Jews and Americans. French house organs now admit that the hatred is not directed only against Bush as some of France's lesser intellects continue to affirm.
