Under Bernadette's petticoats • Dans les Jupons de Bernadette

Fired from France by the dissident frogman

Going back on Tuesday's post, French readers and some relatives just told me more about the (last to date) "Death to the Jews" feast in The Country That Is Not Anti-Semite®. (See also here but particularly Merde in France's links here).

We already know that it happened in the Burgundian town of Mâcon, which - besides the nature of the event itself - really sets me to ballistic mode, for many reasons I will not develop here.

The rest will do nothing to improve my mood.

Let's get it straight:

5 000 French - presumably of all ages and descents - attending the concert, including the wife of the President and some bloke who, supposedly, shouldn't be easily intimidated but who probably spent too much time in Bernadette's petticoats lately.
No offense intended. I'm just trying to find explanations. After all, the guy is a world heavyweight judo champion.

30 young French - of North African descent - (presented here as a "small group of very young teenagers") standing in front of the stage, yelling "death to the Jews" and threatening a 25 years old Israeli singer (She holds in fact, the American, Israeli and French nationality. Fate dealt her two good cards. Not bad.) who, paradoxically, found herself alone and isolated among 5 000 French, including the wife of the President and some bloke who supposedly shouldn't be easily intimidated. Particularly by "very young teenagers".

Nobody dared to stop the very young scum and teach them a thing or two before they become older scum.

TV crews? Yeah, there were TV crews. They even took the decision to air the show on their TV channels later. They just took great care to shunt the sound and have a Voice Over TV Twat gossiping during the part featuring 30 very young scum tossing racial insults and threats at a lone 25 years old girl, in front of 4970 French, the President's wife and the heavyweight bloke under her petticoats at a public manifestation.
Where did you hear about anti-Semitism in this country again?

Cops? Yeah, surely there were some at some point. Or not. Or probably too late. Or too busy billing excessive speed criminals drivers. Some even says that nobody called them, in order not to 'aggravate' the situation and 'upset' those 30 poor young French. They happened to be of North African descent, and surely are not to be upset by the police, particularly when they are tossing racial insults and threats at a lone 25 years old girl in front of the First Lady and quite a bunch of her serfs fellow citizens. I mean, come on, if you start arresting them just for collectively insulting and threatening girls, then you'll have to arrest them when they collectively rape them. That would upset them even more, for sure.

So the Cops asked the TV crew to have a look at the tapes, and will watch the crime on TV. Another beer Officer? Popcorns? See there on the left? Well tha's a bad guy I can tell ya. Wot's that Officer? Oh no, no, no, Officer you can't say that. The proper term is "a youngster issued from The Immigration". Have another beer.

But what about decent people? Courageous fellows standing for Liberté, Egalité or even that friggin' meaningless Fraternité? Principled French ready to stand against the enemies of BlahBlahberté, BlahBlahBlahgalité as well as BlahBlahBlahBlahternité, even when the enemy is a dreadful "small group of very young teenagers"?

If there were any among this crowd of 5 000, surely they will show on the tape. Let's just let the police do her job, will ya?

Well, on second thought, let's not. Instead, let's ponder sadly on the fact that, thank in no small part to the cast of kleptocrats to which Bernadette belongs, any French of any origin, standing against the racism of some French of a certain origin (being PC is so funny, dontcha think?), in the name of basic moral principles and decency, is certain to be eaten alive by the various variably anti-racist NGOs (such as the despicable MRAP - Google that by yourself, I don't link to scum.) and the French Justice itself. Because in that case, they would be considered more racists than the other racists.

We're civilized people. There are laws against a certain racism in this country, you know.

The cops, at least, managed to upset arrest 5 of the very young teenagers. I guess that is a consolation, particularly for Bernadette who was "really saddened" as you may recall.

Meanwhile, the various political and administrative 'after-the-facts cheap talk' goes on:
« France is not an anti-Semite country »
Well, of course not, you silly person you. The official position is that even the Jews die one day or another.

So yelling "Death to the Jews" is not anti-Semitism. Just stating facts.
« We will not tolerate any incident of this kind »
Until, of course, we are actually confronted with the next incident of this kind, while having a 5000/30 numerical superiority ratio and a world heavyweight judo champ on our side. In that case, we'll just shut up and wait until the 30 racist kids are gone before claiming again "Ooeee ooeel not tolerate any incident of zis kind."
« We request an all-out severity against this type of behavior, which is punished by law and is incompatible with the founding principles of the French society. »
Word for word: empty blathering and wishful thinking are the founding principles of the French society.
«  Honey, I peed in my pants at that concert and need a change of my underwear »
Okay, I made up this one.

Meanwhile, the Mayor of Mâcon aggravates cowardice with offence when, "speaking in the name of all the people of Mâcon" - minus at least 30 of them - he offers his support to the singer (A bit late my lad) and invites her to... Come again (no, really, the lad is serious. That's the offense actually.)

Meanwhile, Shirel the assaulted singer demonstrates that she's not only absolutely gorgeous but also particularly insightful:
« Even if France is the country of Human Rights, it's never been the country that really lives up to that sort of things. »
And that pretty sums up the whole thing.
Revenant sur le post de Mardi, des lecteurs français et certaines relations m'en ont appris plus au sujet du festival "Mort aux Juifs" (Le dernier en date) dans Le Pays Qui N'est Pas Anti-Sémite®. (Voyez également ici et particulièrement les liens de Merde in France ici).

Nous savons déjà que cela s'est produit dans la ville bourguignonne de Mâcon, ce qui - au-delà de la nature de l'évènement lui-même - me pousse vraiment en mode balistique, pour différentes raisons que je n'aborderai pas ici et maintenant.

Le reste ne fera rien pour arranger mon humeur.

Mettons ça bien à plat :

5 000 français - censément de tous âges et héritages - assistent au concert, y compris la femme du Président et une sorte de mec qui, a priori, ne devrait pas être facilement intimidé mais a probablement passé trop de temps dans les jupons de Bernadette dernièrement.
N'y voyez pas malice. Je tente simplement de trouver des explications. Après tout, le gars est champion du monde poids lourd de judo.

30 jeunes français - d'héritage nord africain - (présentés ici comme "un petit groupe de très jeunes adolescents") se tenant devant la scène, hurlant "Mort aux Juifs" et menaçant une chanteuse israélienne de 25 ans (qui détient en fait les nationalités américaine, israélienne et française. Le destin lui a distribué deux bonnes cartes. Pas mal.) qui, paradoxalement, s'est trouvée bien seule et isolée parmi 5 000 français, y compris la femme du Président et une sorte de mec qui a priori ne devrait pas être facilement intimidé. Particulièrement par de "très jeunes adolescents".

Personne n'a osé interrompre les très jeunes ordures et leur apprendre une chose ou deux avant qu'ils ne deviennent de plus vieilles ordures.

Des équipes de TV ? Ouais, il y avait des équipes de TV. Elles ont même pris la décision de diffuser ensuite le show sur leurs chaînes de TV. Elles ont juste pris grand soin de shunter le son et d'ajouter les babillages d'un Gland de TV en Voix Off pendant la partie figurant 30 très jeunes ordures balançant des insultes et des menaces racistes à une jeune fille de 25 ans isolée devant 4970 français, la femme du Président et la sorte de mec poids lourd sous ses jupons dans une manifestation publique.
Où avez vous entendu parler d'anti-sémitisme dans ce pays exactement ?

Des flics ? Ouais, il y en a certainement eu à un moment ou à un autre. Ou pas. Ou probablement trop tard. Ou trop occupés à facturer les excès de vitesse des criminels conducteurs. Certains disent même qu'ils n'ont pas été alertés, afin de ne pas 'aggraver' la situation et 'indisposer' ces 30 pauvres jeunes français. Ils se trouvaient être d'héritage nord africain et, sûrement ne doivent pas être sujets à des indispositions par voies policières, particulièrement lorsqu'ils balancent des insultes et des menaces racistes à une jeune fille de 25 ans devant la Première Dame et un paquet de ses serfs concitoyens. Enfin quoi, soyez sérieux, si vous commencez à les arrêter lorsqu'ils insultent et menacent des jeunes filles collectivement, alors il vous faudrait aussi les arrêter lorsqu'ils les violent collectivement. Ce qui les indisposerait encore plus, c'est certain.

Les flics ont donc demandé à jeter un oeil aux cassettes et vont regarder le crime à la télé. Une aut' bière m'n'Adjudant ? Du popcorn ? Tiens, voyez sur la gauche ? Eh ben c'est un brigand, ça j'peux vous le dire. De quoi m'n'Adjudant ? Oh non, non, non, m'n'Adjudant faut pas dire ça. Le bon mot c'est "un jeune issu de L'Immigration". Prenez une autre bière.

Mais qu'en est-il des braves gens ? Des types courageux soutenant Liberté, Egalité ou même cette bougre d'insignifiante Fraternité ? Des français avec des principes, prêts à faire face à tous les ennemis de BlaBlaberté, BlaBlaBlagalité ainsi que BlaBlaBlaBlaternité, même quand les ennemis sont un redoutable "petit groupe de très jeunes adolescents"?

S'il s'en est trouvé au sein de cette multitude de 5 000, ils seront certainement visibles sur la cassette. Laissons la police faire son travail, voulez vous ?

En fait, non, ne la laissons pas. Au lieu de ça, considérons tristement le fait que, en grande partie grâce à la caste de kleptocrates à laquelle appartient Bernadette, n'importe quel français de n'importe quelle origine, décidant de s'opposer au racisme de certains français d'une certaine origine (le Politiquement Correct c'est si marrant, v'trouvez pas ?), au nom de principes et de valeurs morales de base, est assuré d'être avalé vivant par les diverses ONG à l'anti-racisme variable (tel que le méprisable MRAP - Googlez ça tout seul, je ne lie pas vers les ordures.) et la Justice Française elle-même. Car dans ce cas, ils seraient considérés comme plus racistes que les autres racistes.

Nous sommes gens civilisés. Il y a des lois contre un certain le racisme dans ce pays, savez vous.

Les flics, au moins, ont réussi à indisposer 5 des très jeunes adolescents. J'imagine que c'est une consolation, particulièrement pour Bernadette qui fut, vous en souvient-il "vraiment désolée".

Pendant ce temps, les diverses 'vacuités ultérieures' fleurissent :
« La France n'est pas un pays anti-sémite »
Mais bien sur que non, bougre de bougre que vous êtes. La position officielle est que même les Juifs meurent un jour.

Donc hurler "Mort aux juifs" n'est pas de l'anti-sémitisme. Juste l'expression des faits.
« Nous ne tolérerons aucun dérapage de ce type »
Jusqu'à ce que nous soyons en fait confrontés au prochain dérapage de ce type bien entendu, avec une supériorité numérique de proportion 5000/30 et un champion du monde de judo poids lourd de notre côté. Dans ce cas, nous la fermerons tout simplement et attendrons que les 30 gamins racistes s'en soient allés avant de proclamer à nouveau "Nous ne tolérerons aucun dérapage de ce type."
« Nous demandons la plus grande sévérité à l'encontre de ce type de comportement, puni par la loi, et incompatible avec les principes qui fondent la société française. »
Littéralement : vaine emphase et voeux pieux sont les fondements de la société française.
«  Chérie, j'ai pissé dans mon froc à ce concert et j'ai besoin de changer mes sous-vêtements »
Ok, je l'ai inventée celle-là.

Pendant ce temps, le maire de Mâcon aggrave la lâcheté par l'insulte lorsque, "parlant au nom de tous les mâconnais" - à l'exception d'au moins un trentaine d'entre eux - il offre son soutien à la chanteuse (Un peu tard, jeune homme) et l'invite à... Revenir (Non vraiment, le gars est sérieux. Là est l'insulte en fait.)

Pendant ce temps, Shirel, la chanteuse agressée, démontre qu'elle n'est pas seulement absolument ravissante mais aussi particulièrement perspicace :
« Même si la France est le pays des droits de l'homme, ça n'a jamais été le pays qui se met dans tous ses états pour ce genre de choses. »
Et ça résume à peu près toute la chose.

Comments

The young singer has class and behaved like the professional she is.

The 'young' Jew-haters have no class and behaved like the racist fasco-thugs they are.

The other French bystanders had no, uh, ba-ls and behaved like the passive accomplices to racial hatred they are.

No one would want to humiliate these poor fasco-thug 'teens'. Noooo. I can only imagine the traumatism of those among them who were actually forced to suffer contact with the police. Poor little darlings.

I'm calling Amnesty International right now.

This proves the old adage that evil spreads only when good people do not stand up to it.

"We are civilized people." But those who commit such acts are not. They spit on civilization. They disdain it. You cannot expect rationality from irrational people. And those filled with hate are the most irrational of all.

If it can happen there, it c an happen anywhere. Smirk not America.

DF:

I can well imagine the frustration you must feel in exhibiting weekly (at minimum!) examples of the misbehavior of some of your countrymen. Such cruelty and indifference in the face of evil is a criminal disgrace. How can they look themselves in the mirror doing after such a thing?

Valerie (the other) is of course correct; I do not smirk on behalf of my country. There are examples in our own local news of callous indifference and depravity, including two separate incidents in the past six months of elderly relatives dying in the home and being left to decompose like so much compost. Screw the Legions of the Panty-Twisted - what's needed (among other things) is some good old fashioned social scorn. Ostracize. Roundly condemn. Pretending that everything is "equally nice and culturally diverse" is absolutely killing civilization.

one thing are the frogmen, one other are the french. not all shoul have some problem looking in the morning at the mirror.

Posted by: avy | February 5, 2004 06:56 PM

Quite true, avy, and I never said all should. The Mighty Frogman is John Wayne in a beret. In fact, in my mind 'frog' is no longer derogatory but complimentary, because of the DF. He rocks in all possible ways.

However - in a larger and philosophical sense I gladly (re)repeat Valerie the Other: no-one should smirk. We've all done lousy stuff in our lives. Some of it is just much lousier. Also, certain people realize it and reform, while others revel in wickedness (theirs and others). I'm taking extra time to explain it, not because you didn't understand the idiom (you obviously do), but I don't want anyone to think I'm lumping the DF in with his less-reputable fellow residents.

Nightfly,

Mine was but a cautionary note against the conceit that we might be above such things as the distressing rise in Anti-Semitism in Europe. All too well I know the foibles of our beloved coutnry. We should speak out, at every opportunity against the "Legion of the Panty Twisted" and their designs to stifle true freedom of speech and liberty. The thugs in the theatre were confident that fear would keep the other people who witnessed their vile actions from stopping them. A life lived in fear is no life at all.

We should follow the example of our gracious host, the Great Frogman of War.

Posted by: Valerie, the other | February 6, 2004 12:37 AM

I think I'm in love . Dear God let me be lucky enough to be at a concert where all I would have to do is beat the snot out of some heckling teenie boppers of North African desent to gain the favor of so charming a creature as Shirel.
Shaming a crowd of Frenchman would only be the icing:-)

Posted by: papertiger | February 6, 2004 02:59 PM

Don't smirk -
laugh
mock
be outraged at the ethical cowardice you see around you.
take cheap shots if you have to and don't back down.

Point out the hypocracy, the personal failure of anyone who would march against the great bugaboo america but not over a war in the congo that kills millions.

Convince them of their moral vanity - their penis-envy. Their self-serving hatred of anyone who has ever succeeded. Their distaste for personal responsibility.

Laugh heartily and live by your beliefs.
If they keep drinking the herd mentality kool-aid, then that's up to them. The truly vulgar despots of the world will be able to compost them.

This story is f-ing terrible. Hope you will excuse my language...Can I link you from my blog? I just opened an english-language one. Ciao and good luck to France! =(

Posted by: Valerio | February 8, 2004 09:10 PM

First, I hope you may apologize my english...
So, I' m a French teenager, I'm 18. As you said it, anti-Semite racism in my country, still exists. To be more precise, I could say it grows up !The more important kind of racism in France are , first anti-Smite, second anti-Arabs and finally anti-French. Maghrebians ancestry people are really anti-Semite certainly because of the situation between Israel and "Palestine" (???). That' s an important problem for many reason. I think the government prefer to defend Laïcity (???) for the moment because that' s will may a great help to prevent from anti-Semite racism.
On my view, that' s really stupid. I think the government search to gain voices for the next legislative election which will occure in a month. That's a BIG mistake ! If the politicians don't take real decisions, I imagine my country will really become an anti-Semite paradise... I can' t stand this! I can't stand to see the "Front Nationnal" (the nationnalist politics) gain the next elections. I think the government of 1997 had done many mistakes which make the FN more attractive for the people...

I hope my country will WAKE UP !
Sorry for my english !!! :D

That's a photograph. For those who aren't able to read french, I'm not certain to be able to translate but I can sum up : We can read sexist, anti-Semite and rascism message on an usual bus stop ...

Posted by: FrenchTeenager | February 10, 2004 11:57 PM

I would like to see those 30 anti-semites try the same thing at a concert in this country: they'd get the shit kicked out of them in short order. The parallel is found in our approach to the Iraq war: Chirac wants to chat with the beast while Bush says, "ok, we've done enough talking, time to take you to task." Leadership is about being decisive and the reason the US remains top dog is because Americans elect our government and Americans aren't ones to futz around while bad things are happening to good people. Amen brotha. Bien a fait DF.

there' s massivedestruction weapons on Iraq ? blablablablablablabla
We may not punish people for their opinions but only for their act !!!!!
Stupid Stupid Stupid :p :p

Posted by: FrenchTeenager | February 11, 2004 02:15 PM

Hello French Teenager, don't you think that our current government does his best to promote the FN too? Thank you to hope for our contry, I hope with you.

Posted by: lola | February 13, 2004 06:16 PM

I dont think this 'cause FN is a serious challenger now.

Posted by: FrenchTeenager | February 14, 2004 10:00 PM

Good lord. What is happening to France?

Posted by: Dean Esmay | February 15, 2004 05:18 PM

I have read that the French Government is set up in such a way that a Frenchman must cheat on his taxes in order to pay the bills. Then if a Frenchman speaks out against the system he is investigated, where the Government will find the inevitable tax fraud and use prosecution to shut him up.
This would be an effective way to maintain an undesirable status quo.
If this is the truth of things in France then Teenager might be the only hope of anyone ever speaking against the system. Being young he has not had the time to rack up the inevitable misdemieners on his record with which the Government silences the voice of change. Educate your children well. Your future freedom will depend on it.

Posted by: papertiger | February 17, 2004 04:10 AM

Le plus ennuyeux dans tout ca, c'est que les Américains peuvent à juste titre se poser la question si tous les Français pensent la même chose que ce que leur renvoient les médias. Comment je vais faire pour leur faire accepter qu'il n'y a pas que des Français antisémites, pro-islamiques, extrème-gauche et politiquement corrects?
