I used to get sucked into those things, now I just look at them as a colossal waste of time.

There's an old Southern saying about this.

Never wrassle in the mud with a damned old hog. You only get dirty, and the hog likes it.

I was a member of a political forum that was slowly taken over by communists, socialists, and some other real loons. There's people out there who celebrate 9-11, and I mean educated professionals from affluent backgrounds, not street rabble. There's people who praise Stalin and Kim Jong Il, incredible as that may seem. There's people who will tell you that Stalin's purges were a capitalist fabrication, that the Winter War against the Finns was justified, that you're a "colonialist butcher" if you think otherwise. Ironic wording, since the USSR was nothing more than the Russian Empire dressed up in communist rhetoric. A lot of these fools live in countries that were protected by America's might for the half century of the Cold War.

There's no point debating people like that.

Back when I didn't know no better, I had a website which I linked to one of the free discussion board services--this was when they were fairly new. I can't even quite recall the name of the service, now, but at the time, it was pretty cool. This was before I discovered TFL.

Anyway, I had a board of my very own of which I was very proud. On it, I encouraged anti-racism activists to have conversations with neo-Nazis, skinheads, and other assorted warriors against the Evils of Jewry.

This did not go well. :uhoh:


The name of my website, which in fairness included more than just that forum?

"The Magic TimeWaster."

Let's review here....
French, anti-American, anti Semite...
Sounds triple redundant to me.

Give 'em an enema, put 'em in a shoe box and send 'em straight to hell.

They're french.

What did you expect?

I'm going to agree mightily with everyone here who's telling you not to wrestle with pigs. (Sorry to compare pigs to the french....pigs are noble animals that serve a purpose on this planet.)

I don't know if this is true, but I thought I'd share it anyway. The point made is very true anyway.

WHY IS IT THAT WE HAVE TO SPEAK ENGLISH?

An officer in the U.S. Naval reserve was attending a conference that
included admirals from both the U.S. Navy and the French Navy. At a cocktail reception, he found himself in a small group that included personnel from both navies.

The French admiral started complaining that whereas Europeans learned many languages, Americans learned only English. He then asked: "Why is it that we have to speak English in these conferences rather than you speak French?

Without hesitating, the American Admiral replied: "Maybe it's because the Brits, Canadians, Aussies and Americans arranged it so you would not have to speak German."

The group became silent.




:D :D :D

Yes, John, but they probably weren't at the conference. . . . . and their national language is not English.

Why are French anti-Semite? Is it because they keep being taken over by Nazis or what?

I can see why they hate us, jealousy of what we are to them, and what they are to the world.

Some Europeans love to make fun of Americans as racist cowboys, but Europe is no bastion of racial harmony. Not long ago there were some hellacious race riots in Britain involving Asian immigrants.

What is a Semite?

Biblically a descendent of Noah's son Shem, ie., the Jews and Arabs.

Speakers of Semetic languages, ie., Hebrew and Arabic.

Send them to the JPFO site and warn them to behave, a lot of our Jews have guns and know how to use them. They may not take too kindly to anti semitism.

For a fun comparison go over the details of how the Warsaw Ghetto defended itself and how vigorously Paris fought back agsint the Nazi troops.

Finally remember froma few years back Letterman's "Top 10 things the French are doing to get ready for German re-unification" ...

• Installing new transmissions in their tanks with 5 reverse gears

• Cutting up bedsheets to make nice hand sized flags to wave

• Installing speed bumps on the Champs Elysee to slow down the next wave of German "tourists"

Why are French anti-Semite? Is it because they keep being taken over by Nazis or what? The French have been among the most antisemetic in Western Europe for several hundred years. Until the Nazis they were far worse than the Germans, and the French police and Vichi France were among the worst collaborators with the Nazis when it came to rounding up their country's Jews. Why are the French so bad, that has been the subject of many books and is a rather hard question to answer.

Oh, for a rather famous illustration of the French attitude towards Jews look up the Dreyfuss affair (Capt. Alfred Drefuss was railroaded on spying charges and when it became known to the French high command that he was actually innocent that information was covered up).

What is a semite? Jews and Arabs.

As to why antisemetic or anti-semetic is used to describe hatred against Jews and not also Arabs a bit of a short history lesson is in order.

For years people were comfortable with the term "Jew hatred", and many people felt it. However, after the Enlightenment the term sounded archaic and crass (though most people still held the anti-Jewish feelings). In keeping with the PC of the day, and in order to try to sound like the pseudo-scientific racial theories popular with bigots at the time, Jew-hater Wilhelm Marr coined the term antisemetism in 1879 and it caught on. Ironically the guy thought he'd go down in history and be well known for putting a "scientific" face on Jew-hatred yet today no one knows who he was with the exception of a few Jews and historians.
