This is not the France of Napoleon Bonaparte or Charles Martel. Rather, this is a meek and sickly France that still feels guilty for colonizing Africa and Asia, that remains humiliated for rolling over like a submissive poodle and allowing Hitler all of three minutes to conquer it. The recent burqa ban seemed like a sign of hope until one realizes it was done in the service of feminism rather than national cohesion. This new France hauls drunken fashion fags before tribunals for making anti-Jewish statements and drags blonde sexpots into the Star Chamber for making unkind remarks about Muslims. Though France wasn’t liberated by Muslims or Jews in World War II, it’s apparently still legal to bash Americans until les vaches come home. En général, this is a France that has ceased being French in any admirable way.
