Libs Hate Their Own Countries

Probably doing his thinking in Esperanto…

We’ve heard a member of the German legislature (Green Party, of course) say she looks forward, with great enthusiasm, to a time when Germans will be a minority in Germany. And we’ve heard a Swedish leader rhapsodize about a Sweden with no Swedes in it.

Now we’ve got a guy running for president of France who says there’s no such thing as French culture ( https://www.datalounge.com/thread/18419754-french-pres-candidate-emmanuel-macron-says-there-is-no-such-thing-as-french-culture ).

Emmanuel Macron, 39, a banker before he got into politics, running as an independent, is making a stir in the French election. He also made a stir by calling French colonialism “a crime against humanity” and then criticizing the way homosexual pseudomarriage was imposed on the French people–so he’s got a lot of people mad at him.

In his latest blather, Macron said there was never any such thing as French art–just art that “occurred in France.” Poussin, Delacroix, Degas, Monet, the Limbourg Brothers, Matisse, Rodin–what were they, if not French? Egyptians?

Why do liberals do this? They all wanna be citizens of the world. They worship The Planet. *sigh* They’re always in a hurry to erase their own countries: like the elder Trudeau proclaiming there was no such thing as a Canadian culture, only a bunch of cultures crammed into a space called Canada.

Gee, I wonder what that great Japanese philosopher, Voltaire, would say.

  1. Good question, Lee. Guess they never read in the Bible where God broke up the one-world empire of Nimrod, scattered the people and changed their languages so they could not get up to their nefarious deeds again. Now, we have all these people returning to the old ways of the rebels like a dog returning to its vomit, or the pig to the mud.

  2. That’s astounding, considering the contributions of the French to art, literature and cooking. Somehow, the Three Musketeers wouldn’t be quite the same had they been anywhere but France.

    “I wonder what that great Japanese philosopher, Voltaire, would say.” 🙂 🙂

    Voltaire’s Candide made sense, to a great extent, because of where and when it was written. It was a matter of perspective. (This is not to say that I agree with Voltaire’s deist views, but I certainly share his disillusionment with much of the mainstream clergy.)

    Candide was written, in part, as a response to the prevailing philosophy that we lived in the best of all possible worlds (Liebnitz), something a bit hard to swallow after the Lisbon earthquake of 1755, not to mention the all but unending warfare of the time. But my point is simply that France was the fabric of it all.
