... not to mention baguettes, gauloises, and a bottle of wine.

You have to buy your beret, striped shirt, and grow a mustache yourself, though.

Pétain is a very French name.

Algeria is not still part of France?  Don't tell me La Reunion is independent, too.   A French name could be very African indeed.

The right wing is only a reaction to the stupidity of the politicians who allowed people who are intolerant of women and other religions to come en masse without assimilating into Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite and (most importantly) Laicete.

The right wing is not a 'reaction' to anything. They are simply the party of The Nazis. And they are rising up again.

If there is ANY nation that would want to stomp the cockroaches out AGAIN, you would think it would be France.
F&$K the 'right'. F^*K the nazis.

That's been a thing long before Trump. Any people can come here on vacation and pop an American out, not just Slavs.

It's almost as if former colonialists don't like it when the chickens of colonialism and imperialism come home to roost.
It's like they loved these people when they were occupying their lands, exploiting their labor, and stealing their stuff - but now that they want to come over and share in some of the proceeds, they don't want to know them.
Now all of a sudden they're "foreigners".
Too bad - no sympathy.

Nationalism is far more dangerous than even covid has ever been. The rise of nationalism and fascism across the world should terrify anyone with an IQ above a shrub.

FTFA: "Much of the French media is not focused on Macron's chances of becoming the first president to be re-elected since Jacques Chirac in 2002, but rather on the rise of the far right."

As an American who is allergic to fascism, that's a really bad idea, French media.

cocozilla: Nationalism is far more dangerous than even covid has ever been. The rise of nationalism and fascism across the world should terrify anyone with an IQ above a shrub.


It's especially absurd when invoked by colonialists against people they have colonialized and exploited.
They are saying "We can come to your country, rob you, enslave you, take your land and treasure - but don't you EVER think about putting one of your dirty feet on MY precious soil."
What a bunch of clowns.

BigNumber12: Well this thread is off to a good start


The luxury of pretending that colonialism doesn't have consequences for the colonist seems to be added to the list of white privileges that are being lost.
Predictably, the losers are interpreting this loss of privilege as oppression.
Problem with that?
 
2021-10-13 1:12:29 PM  
Boy, the thought of an autocratic state with an unaccountable, tyrannical ruler, that enforces "traditional" values with a heavy legal hand, severely restricts citizenship based on ethnicity, and treats everyone else with viciousness and exploitation, is pretty tough to imagine, right Qatar?

Why would you hope something pointless, stupid, and none of your business like that?
Seems a very odd thing for a total stranger to hope.

TheJoe03: France? racist? That's crazy!


Yeah I know, who ever heard of such a thing, right?
These are the people who, when Nazis marched into their country, knelt and smooched their rectums.
Much like republicans do the Nazis invading America.
There was a French Resistance - but they were Communists - you know - the despised and hated "left" these Farkkkers  whine about all day, and blame for their inability to find a parking place or Depends that fit.
You assholes should thank the "Left" for everything you f**king have.

First of all, I think you misspelled "ghettoes".

Second of all, you think rioting youth in France are only made up of Muslims?
