France is halfway there – they have their own dead black to use in their race hoax. But they are still copying our race hoax.
Tear gas choked Paris streets as riot police faced off with protesters setting fires Tuesday amid growing global outrage over George Floyd’s death in the United States, racial injustice and heavy-handed police tactics around the world.
French protesters took a knee and raised their fists while firefighters struggled to extinguish multiple blazes as a largely peaceful, multiracial demonstration degenerated into scattered tensions. Several thousand people defied a virus-related ban on protests to pay homage to Floyd and Adama Traore, a French black man who died in police custody.
Electric scooters and construction barriers went up in flames, and smoke stained a sign reading “Restaurant Open” — on the first day French cafes were allowed to open after nearly three months of virus lockdown.
Chanting “I can’t breathe,” thousands marched peacefully through Australia’s largest city, while thousands more demonstrated in the Dutch capital of The Hague and hundreds rallied in Tel Aviv. Expressions of anger erupted in multiple languages on social networks, with thousands of Swedes joining an online protest and others speaking out under the banner of #BlackOutTuesday.
Diplomatic ire percolated too, with the European Union’s top foreign policy official saying the bloc was “shocked and appalled” by Floyd’s death.
Floyd died last week after a police officer pressed his knee into his neck for several minutes even after he stopped moving and pleading for air. The death set off protests that spread across America — and now, beyond.
As demonstrations escalated worldwide, solidarity with U.S. protesters increasingly mixed with local worries.
“This happened in the United States, but it happens in France, it happens everywhere,” Paris protester Xavier Dintimille said. While he said police violence seems worse in the U.S., he added, “all blacks live this to a degree.”
Fears of the coronavirus remain close to the surface and were the reason cited for banning Tuesday’s protest at the main Paris courthouse, because gatherings of more than 10 people remain forbidden.
But demonstrators showed up anyway. Some said police violence worsened during virus confinement in working class suburbs with large minority populations, deepening a feeling of injustice.
Even as they have their own race hoax, they insist on globbing onto our race hoax.
Do you really need a double race-hoax, France?
Just like you really needed Le Double Big Mac, as you whined about cultural imperialism?
And did you really need to add that horrible American science fiction show to your Big Mac ad, France?
You have your own good science fiction, France!
Much of it is actually iconic!
Have modern French not heard of Jules Verne? André Ruellan? Roland Charles Wagner? Jacques Vallée? Pierre Christin?
Why should I know more about French literature than the French?
What about Moebius?
Why don’t you use Moebius in your ads for your own fast food restaurants that serve double cheesy baguettes?
But wait… what if “fast food” in itself is a cultural export from America, which is an explicit attack on the nature of the ancient human food rituals?
All the sickening Europeans want to do is complain about evil America, but then all they ever do is copy off of us.
They steal our race hoaxes to use in their race riots, they gobble up McDonald’s, they watch horrible “action scifi” TV shows – all the while claiming that Americanism is destroying their cultures.
All you have to do to prevent Americanism from stealing your cultures is to invent your own race hoaxes. Unless of course the concept of a race hoax is a poison pill you swallowed while mindlessly absorbing crap culture from America, in which case you basically have a mind virus and you’re not going to cure yourself of it by whining about American racism. Because American racism as a concept is an American cultural export.
