French Insanity

There are citizens of Russia at the heart of most acts of terror that occurred in France (use this blog’s search function if you don’t remember). LePen’ s campaign is openly funded by Russia. In the midst of the campaign, LePen goes to Russia to stand beaming next to Putin. Putin manufactured the huge immigration wave from Syria to Europe.

And the French support LePen because they don’t like terrorism and Muslim immigrants? So they vote for somebody who brought them terrorism and immigrants?

That’s fucking nuts. 

France used to be a great country but it’s become a total cesspit. My apologies to my French readers but I call it as I see it. French education is in the toilet. Air France is the worst airline on the planet. French scholarship is a joke. There hasn’t been an interesting high-quality product coming from France in forever. And now this shit? What the fuck? What have you all done with the real France?

  1. “So they vote for somebody who brought them terrorism and immigrants?”

    And what exactly is Macron going to do about either?

    I don’t like Le Pen either but Macron is just about as bad in the opposite direction. What’s terrible is that France has gotten itself into such a pickle that it has such terrible candidates.

    This is what neoliberal politics leads to – a hollowed out middle (where things can get done) and increasingly hostile and clueless extremes.

  2. Totally agree with the first 3 paragraph. I have some comments for the 4th.

    “French education is in the toilet.”

    Better than Québec very easily outside college. Better than USA in high school and primary education.

    “Air France is the worst airline on the planet.”

    Probably…although I’m not sure this is worse than Air Canada, but…

    “French scholarship is a joke.”

    You’re right. Ph D. are obtain almost only by networking (no comprenhensive exams); this is even worse than Québec. University in France is in the toilet, really.

    “There hasn’t been an interesting high-quality product coming from France in forever. ”

    It’s not like it was for sure, but at least there is this:

    • Yes, absolutely, I meant French higher education. I know it both from students and other professors from France. They are unanimous in how bad it is.
