Shocker! France Loves Obama; Palin, Not So Much

Sphere: Related Content

France has been tacking to the right lately with the election of Nicolas Sarkozy and their renewed efforts to work with NATO in Afghanistan. However, France will always be France, which wouldn't be such a bad country if it wasn't populated with, well, the French.

They are excited about Obama as shown by the words of this racist esteemed Frenchman:

Bernard-Henri Lévy wrote in the magazine Le Point of Mr. Obama as a new type of American black politician.

“Obama is, certainly, black,” Mr. Lévy wrote. “But not black like Jesse Jackson; not black like Al Sharpton; not black like the blacks born in Alabama or in Tennessee and who, when they appear, bring out in Americans the memories of slavery, lynchings and the Ku Klux Klan — no; a black from Africa; a black descending not from a slave but from a Kenyan; a black who, consequently, has the incomparable merit of not reminding middle America of the shameful pages of its history.”

He goes on for a while, but you get the idea.
He sure has solid view of America and African-Americans, doesn't he? I guess he forgets that we are in 2008 and not 1954 or for that matter, 1944 when us shameful slave owners were kicking Nazi ass all the way across his country--a country the French themselves either abandoned or joined the enemy instead of fight. I'll not even touch on the inherent racism of the statement but will say this: How many "blacks" have been president in France? How many even were accepted enough to attempt it? Answer: zero.

But, this sophisticated and cultured people does not like that evil woman from Alaska, oh no:

There is less philosophizing about Ms. Palin. Dominique Dhombres, writing in a commentary in Le Monde under the headline “She Believes in God, America, the Family and Firearms,” calls Ms. Palin “a powerhouse — she’s almost a tank.” He then compares Mr. McCain to Monsieur Verdoux, “the dapper family man who murders 12 women for their money,” as played by Charlie Chaplin. “I guess you could call them Monsieur Verdoux and his pit bull.”

Mr. McCain is admired for his bravery, but his “maverick” qualities are less understood, partly because he is seen as so conservative on social and religious issues. His experience in foreign affairs is appreciated here, even though some recall his remark during the prewar Iraq debate, when he described the French this way: “They remind me of an aging movie actress in the 1940s who is still trying to dine out on her looks but doesn’t have the face for it.”
It's funny they say McCain is admired for his bravery because he is the epitome of the American male who sailed across the English Channel knowing that death was imminent and stormed the beaches of Normandy anyway. This while half the French nation collaborated and was the exact opposite of brave. as for the murdering twelve women for their money part, it's not even worth a comment.

As for Palin, the French fault her for being that most evil of things: American. My goodness, she believes in "God, America, Family and Guns," how very gauche. The very thing we like about Sarah Palin, the French abhor, that's even more incentive to elect her. She's not the suave, debonair, nuanced, European-light type of candidate like Obama, she's more the type that will protect a friend using any weapon at her disposal when the consequences are gravest (like a pitbull), not throw them under the bus for convenience. Well, I guess Obama really is like the French.

I guess we need not be concerned what the French think for they are about to become a large part of the Muslim Caliphate really soon anyway and cease being, well, French.

Update:It appears the French may just need some of those wretched guns to maintain order:

ROMANS-SUR-ISERE, France (AP) - A French police officer was shot and wounded during clashes with youths that broke out after a teenager died while fleeing police, authorities said Tuesday.

The officer appeared to have been shot in the leg with a hunting rifle, said the police prefecture in Romans-sur-Isere, a southeastern town located 60 miles from Lyon in the Rhone Valley on the edge of the Alps. The officer's life was not in danger. Dents from bullets and buckshot were also found in police vehicles nearby.

I always find it humorous the lengths the AP goes to in avoiding calling the "youths" what they are: Muslim immigrants. Perhaps the French essayist's maight wish to consider writing about solving that nations domestic problems and leave American politics to Americans.
