French Prime minister Valls vows to fight “Racism and antisemitism”

This was a few days ago. Haven’t wrote about it until now as I was playing SRW Rengoku hen: Crowe gets a new haremette edition, and I’m having way too much fun with Tengoku hen, from Tessa taking the empress of the sea title from Lakkage to Nono and Noriko being bros to SUDDENLY IT’S ASAKIM.

If you’ve been reading this blog, you should be able to solve this. If you can’t, well it’s basically the same as what I always say. In France, antisemitism is considered to be a higher form of racism. Valls proved it himself yet again by separating racism and antisemitism in his declaration. The government himself does ethnicity/religion segregation and apartheid and then they say they want to fight it. Some weeks ago during the Auschwitz commemorations, Hollande even said that Shoah is the worst crime against humanity. Comparing crimes or pitting each other sufferin against each other is stupid, but if you do, slavery is the worst by far. You’ll be in much bigger trouble if you ever hit a jewish person in the street than any other person. Oh and you’ll also be ultra trouble if you dare to criticize Israel, and be called antisemitic.

I do think there’s forms of racism that should be dealt with in priority. As far as I know, during a job interview your possible future employer will have an easier time telling whether you’re black or not compared to whether you’re gay or not.

Since I used a Fire Emblem pic: If I understood Fire Emblem IF correctly, you’re pretty much forced to play the White version first, since the Black version is harder and will make White version feel boring if you play it after. Then, there’s how they put both the cute imouto and the glamorous onee san on the Black route. Who in his sane mind would pick White? Why is Black so much superior?

Nintendo should just remake Fire Emblem 4 & 5 into one game instead of doing IF. They should remove permadeath, make it so you get bonuses if you finish a map without anyone dying. Mix the big maps and multiple castles from 4 with small maps and endurance and catching mechanics from 5 and make it work somehow. Just make two routes once you hit the next generation part, one for Leif with scarce resources etc and one for Seris. It’s literally what they’re doing with IF too. 4/5 even has NTR too so nowadays kids who use the word at the slightest occasion to sound cool will be all over it. Nintendo would swim in even more money. Seems they’re going to swim in money with IF too anyway though seeing the game’s preorders.

Anyway, speaking of racism, I went to the movies last Wednesday, to see this movie called Dear White People.  It’s been out in the US for a while now but it only got released in France recently. Usually I only go watch anime movies at the cinema. Went to see it because it features the guy from Everybody Hates Chris, one of the few american shows I watched recently. Well, I say recently, but it’s more like 5+ years ago. Anyway. How the movie deals with racism in the United States isn’t too bad, but it’s also supposed to be a comedy, except I didn’t find a single joke funny. I did almost burst out laughing in the cinema when the university’s white principal says that there’s no racism in USA, considering how many black guys are getting killed by the police these days.

One thing that shocked me about the movie was the insane amount of swearing. I didn’t know even students of prestigious universities were like that in America. According to some american online friends this is actually true IRL. These students are 20+ years old and they do the kind of sex jokes I used to hear in middle school. Like replacing a friend’s voice mail with “I suck things” etc. It’s pitiful. This may sound ironic coming from someone who think USA is the number one terrorist state in the world (Israel being close behind) but I honestly thought America was better than that.

Oh and Valls also said the french government will do it’s best to fight “cyber racism” and ethnicity/religion hate on the internet. I’m still waiting for Elad Ratson to be summoned by a judge.

Hollande’s declining popularity and stuff

As you may have heard/read, starting from the end of August to the middle of September there’s been various events dealing huge blows to Hollande and the currently ruling left party. The biggest thing was Hollande’s previous concubine publishing a book saying all kinds of bad things about him.
Tons of people bought the book and every media and (right wing) politicians made a huge deal out of it. While it’s true it made Hollande’s popularity decline yet again, it’s not like every person in France is stupid and stopped supporting Hollande because of that book. There’s tons of other better reasons since his election explaining Hollande’s declining popularity. Here’s the things I can think of right now:

France’s educational system is still as horrible as ever
While the persons at fault are previous president Sarkozy and his mafia like government, one could blame Hollande as we’re already at half of his presidency and he pretty much didn’t do anything to fix things.  Class restarted for kids this September, and he added a new law making classes in Wednesday mornings mandatory. Something pretty useless. They need to change the way education is as a whole instead of adding hours.

France’s kinda denial of responsibility in the Rwanda genocide
2014 was the 20th sad anniversary of the genocide, and France/Hollande decided to not participate in the commemorations. France admit they had some part of responsibility in the genocide, but they refuse to say they were direct accomplices. They try to nuance it. Basically what you see in Shooting Dogs for them is not being directly responsible. Speaking of which, watch Shooting Dogs if you haven’t yet. Anyway, France didn’t send officials to attend the commemorations because current Rwanda president Paul Kagame accused France of supporting the genocide behind the scenes, like delaying their soldiers deployment for rescue missions so that more people gets killed.
Kagame is a more or less a corrupted bastard as well, just like most of the leaders/dictators in Africa, so one could say you shouldn’t believe everything he says.  The funny thing is, it’s France and other Europeans countries who made Africa that way in the first place. It’s true Africans themselves aren’t doing much to help themselves, but you shouldn’t forget France’s history and direct actions which lead to this. They’re still doing it too. Libya being in COSMIC chaos right now is a direct consequence of France/Sarkozy backstabbing Gaddafi. There was the Arab Springs anyway so bloody stuff would have happened in the country for sure, but if Sarkozy didn’t decide to do that I bet it wouldn’t have been as bad as now. Needless to say, I’m not saying Libya under Gaddaffi was a cool place, I’m just saying France is the greater evil there. That’s not concerning Hollande directly though. I think I just wanted to talk about most of the things in this post regardless of Hollande anyway.

France/Hollande’s failure in Central African Republic (CAR).
Hollande decided to send troops in CAR at the end of 2013 to stop the genocide of muslims by “christians”. They managed to rescue a lot of people and helped in evacuations, some French soldiers actually died doing it too. However, there’s been multiple reports of NGOs like Human Rights Watch saying that they saw Muslims being lynched to death in the streets, with French soldiers not too far away and not doing anything. Some even say it’s a miniature repeat of what France did in Rwanda. For what reason did Hollande send troops there if it was to end things like that, I do not know.

Hollande nominating a schizophrenic, communitarian prime minister: aka Manuel Valls
(In the Japanese side of twitter apparently someone said Valls looks like Muska and it became ultra poplar.  Plus they realized Valls =バルス so things got crazy)
After the defeat of the left party at the mayor elections at the end of March, Hollande decided to fire his prime minister and replaced him with Manuel Valls, which used to be minister of home affairs. To sum up Valls, he’s pretty much a right wing politician. I still don’t get how he ended up in the left party. In any case, I love to call him schizophrenic because his actions from back when he was minister of home affairs contradicts good things he’s now doing as prime minister.
For example, he used to profusely discriminate and participate in the stigmatization of Roms’s people in France. He evicted a lot of Roms from their (illegal) encampments in various big cities, sometimes brutally. He also evicted a lot from the country. Hollande too once said he supports Valls in his “firmness” against Roms. The thing is, a few weeks after he was nominated prime minister, a young Rom boy was brutally beaten up by a mob. These kinds of events are the direct consequences of Valls’s days as minister of home affairs. But now that he’s prime minister, Valls ferociously condemned the act. I guess I can’t blame him for trying to do his job as prime minister. It’s still hilarious though how he switched from trying to find a scapegoat for France’s problems in Roms or Muslims to this. Then again, this was also present in Sarkozy’s reign, and France as a whole has been discriminating against Muslims for a while now, under the guise of “Laïcité”/secularism.

Communitarian, because during his home affairs days, Valls in various occasions acted in favoritism of the Jewish community in France, and in particular, a single minority.
inb4 random JIDL guy just passing by like Decade and posting a comment saying I’m antisemitic.
That minority includes people like Joël Mergui, the current president of the Jewish consistory in Paris. The funniest thing that guy did is how one day he told Valls that he “fears that the French Jewish community will be an indirect victim of currently rapidly growing new fears in the country.” The new fears being of course islamophobia, as Islam and Judaism got a lot in common like ritual slaughter. He was basically telling Valls that he shouldn’t up the islamophobia too much or it could backfire on Jews as well. He’s deploring this, not the fact that that there’s islamophobia in the first place. It’s really sad there’s this type of minority in the French Jewish community, not realizing that all the favors they get from the government actually fuels antisemitism, as they always fail to hide their deals and everyone sees them. Then there’s the whole “antisemitism” thing in France which I already wrote about that in another post.
Anyway, the biggest thing showing Vall’s favoritism to this minority was how he personally went to great lengths to prohibit shows of an “humorist” called Dieudonné.  No one ever gave a cent when he mocked Muslims, black people(he’s black himself) or any other ethnicity, but when he started mocking Jews, Valls and that minority I wrote about above quickly got in action. Anyway, Dieudonné’s a stupid idiot whose jokes were never funny, and Valls gave him way more publicity than he deserved.

After these reasons, I guess you have the usual things France has been doing since forever and that you can’t really blame Hollande for. Like selling weapons, supporting companies like Total or Areva crapping up African countries and supporting the dictators there, etc. Nothing new and nothing that could make me dissatisfied with Hollande in particular.
There’s tons of other reasons but I think I’ll stop now.

tldr if you’re a thoughtful French citizen, instead of a stupid book that topped Amazon preorders, there’s tons of reasons to feel dissatisfaction over Hollande’s presidency and/or France as a whole.

(I’d make a pretty bad journalist as I don’t usually link any articles as proof to my claims. I don’t like justifying myself when I know something I say is the truth anyway.)

Palestinian child deaths in Gaza since July 7th 2014

gazaDeaths 2014 from israel protective edge

Posted by The Telegraph today. The Telegraph is from UK. In France, the medias will never do this because they’re scared of being called Antisemitic. France is one of the few countries where the fake, old and busted argument that if you criticize what Israel is doing then you don’t like Jews is still used. Politicians, (both the right and left parties, except some of the communists and ecologists), counter racism organizations, the police, medias, everything, they all have this fake argument in the head. Because of it they auto censor themselves. That’s the main reason why stupid crazy kids like the LDJ/French JDL roam free and are even protected by the police.
LDJ are the one who instrumented the truth about the first pro Palestinian demonstration in Paris, leading to some of the protests getting prohibited. I gotta admit it was pretty well done of the LDJ. Ayato would be jealous of their tuning skills. Too bad they were stupid enough to actually boast about it on their website, Twitter, etc. The reason they actually come out in the open is because they aren’t scared of being found out. The truth is everywhere on the French side of the net, but not a single politician said anything about them. Last week, Francois Hollande and Manuel Valls have both hastily condemned the synagogue attacks which have never happened, but now that the truth is out they haven’t said anything about it or corrected themselves. They also don’t condemn the genocide the Israelian army is committing.
One thing true though, is how a protest in Sarcelles became a mob after it ended. Lots of stupid kids there broke down Jewish related shops etc. But then again, if the protests didn’t get prohibited in the first place it wouldn’t have happened.
Oh yeah and to get back to the pic above, remember that those kids were killed in purpose by the Israelian army.
