I lived in Texas, Charlie. Never met a nazi.

Get a load of this bullshit…

Why, that makes me want to take my AK and…Okay, actually it doesn’t. Did piss me off a bit, though.

    I read about that. Such shit! So glad I didn’t hesitate to say, “I am NOT Charlie Hebdo” when all that crap went down. I resist bad mouthing the French generally, but this sort of thing makes that far more difficult.

    Always remember, the French were the only nation in WW2 that voluntarily rounded up its Jews for the Germans. At Dunkirk over one hundred thousand French soldiers were evacuated by the British leaving tens of thousands of British troops behind to become POWs. Only 3000 joined the free French army the rest went back to live happily under German rule. They are more likely to become Nazis than any Texan.

    Uh, Anon,
    I’m a spot skeptical of your take and numbers. Got a good source?
    Anyway, I think the French get part of the attitude from being neighbor to those English and German tribes. They got high tide with Napoleon but lost it.

    I’m happy they where around to help after Saratoga.

    And, if some silly among them can induce Americans to see they have more in common than not, I hold out that that is a good thing.

    I’ve spent almost three months traveling the northwest. This is an awesome place. Mostly good people doing the best they know how. Positive good attitudes mostly I think. We should maybe keep that building spirit and leave the aspiring wreckers behind in the dust of going forth.

    Paris. Ille de la Cite. Southeastern tip. Mémorial des Martyrs de la Déportation. A haunting reminder of all the Jews taken from Paris in the war. Sadly, for reasons not usually articulated, it is often not open to the public anymore.

    I wonder if anyone actually read the article – I haven’t, btw.. Most American blogs and magazines only mention the cover and they are the kind of media that does not have any investigative skills at all (which means basically all media).

    Since the idea of the storm as a karmic retribution for the Trump election is quite popular in Europe (well, among the European left, but we don’t have anything else anymore), it might actually be a parody of that. They are a satire magazine after all and it is a position worthy to be made fun of.

    That European satire magazines tend towards provocative and tasteless covers is nothing new, for example German mag Titanic has one showing homeless people, prostitution and people doing drugs under the headline “After bomb alarm: Frankfurt finally getting back to normal”. That’s par for the course.

To the stake with the heretic!
