Why all the turmoil in France?

That’s what this insightful little blurb asks. I think we need an outcropping of common sense here.

1. “contra la precarite”… The french students are protesting because they’re cowards who are afraid to take a job where they might have to actually do something in order to keep said job.
2. Everybody in France seems willing to put up with these jerks interfering with traffic and shutting down the works in order to let them protest. Sorry, buddy, some old granny’s right to have an ambulance arrive on time trumps your right to take a nap on the street. But that would involve thinking through one’s actions, rather than simply arrogating to oneself the mantle of moral superiority.
3. The cops were perfectly willing to stand by and let thugs from les banlieues beat the snot out of the whiny little bastards. Marking the worst with paintguns? Where does that come from? If you see somebody in danger of being kicked to death, you pull out your truncheons and you lay it down.
4. And if you’re the police superintendent who refuses to back your cops for doing so… well, then you must be in France!


The French are in turmoil, because as a society, the French seem to have lost their flipping minds, and there’s not a single contingent stepping forward that seems to have some grip on both sanity and basic testicular fortitude. If you wanted a recipe for how to turn a major international player into an third-world has-been, France seems to be turning into a splendid example. And it’s a crying damned shame.
