Zeb Hesselgresser: Love it or leave it


Leave for where? The world is out of places to run to:

"Not too long ago, two friends of mine were talking to a Cuban refugee, a businessman who had escaped from Castro, and in the midst of his story one of my friends turned to the other and said, "We don't know how lucky we are."

And the Cuban stopped and said, "How lucky you are? I had some place to escape to."

And in that sentence he told us the entire story. If we lose freedom here, there's no place to escape to. This is the last stand on earth."

ChuDogg: Obviously the only solution is more non-white immigration. That way they can hit critical mass and force white people to assimilate into their culture.

No white people = no racism = no more problems.

This is the only solution I can see.


Well, we're cool, then. "White People" make up a pretty small minority of humanity - a well-traveld one that is rapidly being bred out of existence. Another ten, twent geberations and there aren't going to BE enough "white people" to constitute any significant population group. And nothing of value will be lost.

Just like the French to not follow through. How hard is it to torch 2013 cars?

Because bark huts and penis-gourds are part of an environmentally-sound sustainable way of life.

A lot of Americans think the French are simply rude... and while that's true it's more because they are extremely bigoted and nationalistic. They particularly hate middle easterners.

Hell, they even hate the French Canadians who are their direct descendents and the group of people who are the most similar to them in every possible way.

French Canadians are notoriously bigoted too.

France may be pretty but I don't think I'd wanna live there... and I'm a direct descendent of one of their earliest North American settlers.

My experience has been that everybody is bigoted and I do mean everybody. Worse than the French are the Japanese and Koreans

This has been happening for many years now, it's not exactly news. That being said, what I have to wonder is why on earth the residents of Paris, who know that about this /very/ predictable activity don't simply - move - their cars the day before? Or you could get really radical and have community night watch patrols. You know those things that other parts of the world do on known trouble times and spots?

Is this a case of France surrenders or sheer stupidity? I just don't get it....

The problem is Parisians. Where do most tourists go? Paris. The French are, actually, quite decent people. You know how a lot of Americans claim New Yorkers are rude and loud? The French say the same thing about Parisians.

If people spent more time in smaller cities in France they'd see it isn't all like that, and honestly, I've never had a bad experience in Paris, but there's plenty enough evidence to show that some people do. If more foreign tourists would go to Lyon or Strausbourg or even smaller cities they'd see the difference.

Of course conservative policies are FAR better. I mean if the Neo-Cons were in charge over there all those people would have jobs, crime would be non-existent and everyone would be happy and having fun all the time.

You're saying white people are too dumb to build bark huts? As a certified honkey, I resembles that remark.

I married a French Canadian and moved north. During the first week of my much appreciated free "francisation" course I had, not one, but two instructors suggest that I keep my marriage "on the down low, so as not to offend the other students. One even suggested that I purposely slur my "il" and "elle" and use "Québécoise" instead of "Québécois" when talking about my "chum",as the gentleman from Togo put it, since those were mistakes common to anglophones.
Along with our basic language lessons, we then began to have discussions about "pur laine", watched videos about integration and diversity and mixed marriages ( a man of color married to a western caucasian woman, without fail) and sang songs in French. We only sang songs penned by immigrants or made popular by immigrant groups, never the songs by Quebec's "poets" that are held in such high esteem. We did, however, sing one of the newer standards, "Dégénération", during the graduation ceremony. The choice of a song lamenting the demise of traditional French Canadian culture was a bit ironic, to say the least.

Ever been to St. Jean Baptiste day in Quebec City? It was absolutely wild. There were however a few tense moments when I thought I was about to get my head kicked in for being "Anglo". I'm mostly french but I don't speak it very well... and somehow they just KNOW from looking at you. You don't even have to open your mouth. Montreal is obviously a lot more chilled about stuff like that though.

Cracker and honkey are gender-neutral, so they've got wider application.
