What Is It About The French....?

Ten thousand cars torched in two weeks and the Fench media complain about coverage by 'foreign media.' "It's all being misrepresented," they cry! Go and tell that to the US military who have put up with the bullshit spewed out of Iraq by Reuters and their friends.

Many commentators on French television and the major newspapers whined about the gross exaggerations of the riots in the foreign media.

"This is not Chechnya," one angry resident of Clichy-sous-Bois, the isolated Paris immigrant suburb where the rioting began two weeks ago, angrily told The Australian at a memorial rally for the town's gym, burned down the evening before by a gleeful mob of pyromaniacs.

But over the weekend the rioting did not abate. Indeed, for the first time since the violence exploded on October 27 after two teenage boys were electrocuted in Clichy-sous-Bois -- the pair took refuge in a power substation believing they were being chased by police -- the crisis spread to a major city centre.

Then there is this gem from French blog Non Pasaron. The duplicitous Froggies had usurped the EU in much the same way as they did the UN, in order to promote their doctrine of Amerikahatred. At last, they are being tipped out.

There's "a Witch Hunt" Against the French

posted by Erik @ 3:51 PM

In France 2's 8 pm news today, the French population was informed that there is "a witch hunt" against the French in Brussels (or as an UDF politician put it, against the French idea of the EU as a strong entity, united against America).

After Borroso's shake-up, apparently there is only one commissioner from France at the European Commission (agriculture, what else?), with other French top honchos (the spokeswoman, for example) evicted. (Worse is the fact that they have been replaced by proponents of Anglo-Saxon type free markets!)

(Noting that during Jacques Delors' helmsmanship of the EU, the French had said that they were content they had a Frenchman in the control, a foreigner then living in France said that French enthusiasm for Europe was entirely subservient to the EU's being France's instrument, and in no way was there any interest for Paris working as a partner in unison with the other members.)

The expression "chasse aux sorcières" was used at least three or four times in the (short) report, once (at first) as a rhetorical question, once as a quote (the above-mentioned politician), and once as a matter-of-fact factual statement given as such by the France 2 commentator!

In case you are wondering, the literal translation of 'chasse aux sorcieres' is of course, "chase of the witches."

Isee some wag down by the Seine has opened a book on when the carbeque count will break through and beat the Dow index. Apparently it's not far away.
