France: The Ted Bundy of European Nations
From Vile France, by Dennis Boyles (h/t to BenS) [I quoted the first part of this material earlier] :
In very large numbers, the French don’t like us…What we mistakenly see as a craven, anti-Semitic, insecure, hypocritical, hysterically anti-American, selfish, overtaxed, culturally exhausted country, berefit of ideas, fearful of its own capitualation to Islam, headed for a democraphic cul de sac, corrupted by lame ideologies, clinging to unsupportable entitlements, crippled by a spirit-stomping social elite and up to its neck in a cheesy soufflé of multilayered bureaucracy is actually worse than all that. It’s vile.
… In just the last half-century or so, France has been guilty of eagerly abetting the Holocaust; perpetrating more postwar anti-Semitic acts than any other country in Europe; enabling and supporting state-sponsored genocide and slaughter in Africa and Asia; attacking unarmed civilians on foreign territory; arming enemies of Western democracies; treating its young with disain and its elderly with a neglect that is often fatal; suppressing conventional human rights, especially the right to free speech; protecting murderers and war criminals from justice; pursuing a foreign policy in which mendacity is a strategy used against both friends and enemies; polluting the earth while rhetorically demanding planetary hygiene from others; pursing illegal trade activities; engaging in massive, systematic corruption and greed; worshiping self-seriousness; and undermining American foreign policy wherever possible, no matter how many lives that costs. France looks great and seems swell but it acts hideously. It’s the Ted Bundy of European nations. (Denis Boyles, Encounter Books, 2005, p.5).
I don't know whether the London Public Library has ordered the book, yet [here is my earlier post on the subject].

Hmm, my birthday's in February, in case anyone's making a list.

To be honest, my birthday is in March. (not joking)

For a moment I thought I was reading an indictment of the US and not France. Yes they rate highly on the Euro - trash index, but in fairness they have been outfoxed so many times by the US , [ Vietnam, Algeria , Iraq ] that maybe some retaliation is understandable .

Let's not forget how helpful they have been in promoting Canadian national unity.(not)When you read their social history, and the choices made in the name of progress and 'intelligence', its hardly surprising. Does Canada HAVE to follow the same degenerative road just when the rest of the world is starting to realize the 'Enlightenment' wasn't?
