Why We Laugh at the Left

So I'm reading one of the local papers user group postings on the rioting in France, and come across this gem....

Well I hope the French use restraint and remember their responsibility to human rights. If only they were not treating these people as second class citizens they would not have this justified anger to deal with.

Actually, I think if the two kids who died the first night hadn't been breaking the law, then running from the cops, this probably wouldn't happened.

The UN should look into discrimination against Muslims in France. I am sure they will find that Bush is behind the whole thing. After all, France didn't support the Iraq war against dark skinned Muslims. The anger in the normally peaceful, Muslim world is one person's fault - George Bush.

That's right folks, George Bush himself is to blame for the rioting in France! The French government's anti-growth policies that have given their young adults a 23% unemployment rate probably has nothing to do with it. Since it's GW's fault, why should the UN look at France's treatment of the immigrants though.

And, if France didn't support the war in Iraq, why would muslims there be torching things? Do they think France should have gone to war?

I'm confused, I have to quit reading lefty posts.

I'm with you on being confused on the whole French reaction. By the way, Michele sent me.

The riots have nothing to do with the war in Iraq nor Geroge Bush. It's evident that France's anti-growth policies and high employment rates are the source. Yet, there truly is discrimination against people of North African origin.

I'm currently living in a university dormitory in one of Parisian outskirts Built in the 50s, it looks a lot like the low-cost housing estates mentioned in the news. So I can totally understand precarious conditions over there.

Foreign media are exaggerating about these incidences. Americans especially love to do that.

There has not been much confrontation between the police and rioters, especially in the past two days. Arsons are serious, to be sure. But, as in all other democracies, France has been cautiously weighing its policy options. If it were an authoritarian regime, the government would just declare curfew, and indiscriminately crack down on all suspects, real and imagined.

Please rest assured: Paris is not burning. Riots as well as social movements are not new here, and I don't even heard my friends discussing this.

Thanks for the insight. The french press reports coming over this way are making it seem as big as the one's from our networks.

The left *rarely* makes sense. I see they didn't choose to make this time an exception.

Why, of course Bush is the cause of the rioting!
He was involved in a massive conspiracy to cause Katrina, blow up the levees, kill black people and rearrange them for his benefit in the electoral college.
How can you be so ignorant, man?

Funny stuff Bob.

SMA - "Foreign media are exaggerating about these incidences. Americans especially love to do that."
If this is true, then why were the riots going for almost a week before it made the news here? Did you hear about the Toledo riots? That lasted for one half of a day, and I am sure it was broadcast world wide.

Ned-You have to forgive SMA, he also feels Iran is a representative democracy, so he may be off a little bit.

Rebekah- You forgot that he's the sole reason for global warming by not signing a treaty that doesn't go into effect for 4 more years!

To get the record straight, I think I said Iran is an "illiberal" democracy. Moderate conservatives like Fareed Zakaria and Frank Fukuyama would give you the same definition. I see more entries on Paris riots on US blogs - both liberal and conservative -than in France. The French will be glad to know the attention you're paying to them.

SMA- While in name they are a democracy, the truth is their elections are meaningless. Look over the history of the 6 years there. The ruling Mullahs control the power.

They remove candidates from elections because they want to change the power structure.

They have full authority to override the parliment and President, with no check on their power.

What they are is a idealogic theocracy that disguises itself as a representative democracy.

If no one in France is worried about the riots, then it is already lost. Get out your prayer rug.

D'oh! I should have know that Bushhitler was to blame for all of France's problems. Who else could be responsible. **snark snark**

Oh God. Was is the left so pro-capitulation? Bloody useless. The British left was also against going to a certain war with Hitler's facist Third Reich...
