Sorbonne University president Jean-Robert Pitte:

“I’m very angry about the demagogy, the ignorance and the stupidity of the young and of the French,” said Dr Pitte, 56, a geography professor who has taught at Oxford and Cambridge and holds the Légion d’honneur.

“Today’s youth don’t have dreams, they have illusions. To dream is to want to accomplish something difficult that is a challenge. Instead youngsters believe they have a right to everything and if things don’t go the way they want it’s someone else’s fault.”

Dr Pitte’s car insurance just quadrupled.

    1. Hey the secret to socialism is to murder people until you get the right people.

    1. “Hey the secret to socialism is to murder people until you get the right people.”

      I cannot remember ever seeing a better short definition of totalitarianism. Good work, Rob!

    1. “Let them eat cake”. Marie Antoinette, may or may not have said that…but f*** them.

    1. Pitte describes himself as a “right wing anarchist” but the reason he will be ignored is that his degree is in science not semiotics or sociology. And will all know how backward and unenlightened those scientists can be.

    1. Academics lie to tel their own truthes and politicians use lies to cover up the truth.
      But they all end up in davy jones locker together.
      The sight of all those Profs heading out of their santuaries clutching their apple macs as the barbarians invaded did bring a little schadenfreude .
      What is it with those intellectuals that they all use Apples and turn up their noses at the cheap generic PCs which can easily be upgraded and repaired at home?

    1. Is Dr. Pitte a secret American?  ;-p

    1. It took a professor with “the Légion d’honneur” to age 56 to figure out that the French are idiots?  No wonder they’re in trouble.

    1. Today’s Leftists don’t have dreams, they have illusions. To dream is to want to accomplish something difficult that is a challenge. Instead Leftists believe they have a right to everything and if things don’t go the way they want it’s someone else’s fault.

    1. Heinrich Heine wrote “Where one burns books, one will soon burn people” in 1823, observing the rise of European fascism.

      Let me update that for modern times, “Where one burns cars, one will soon burn people.”

      These riots are a dress rehearsal for Europe’s new barbarians, They don’t yet have the nerve for the mass murder they crave, but they are working themselves up to it. Then as now, the Jews are the canary in the coalmine. Then, as now, the canary is expiring and nobody is watching.

      It’s coming for Europe, it really is. These effeminate, decadent liberal French students are just play acting at being revolutionaries, the real storm is brewing in the muslim ghettos.

      But hey, couldn’t happen to a nicer country 🙂

    1. A surprising number of French people would agree with Pitte, but we never hear their voices. No politician represents them, they are shouted down and called ‘racists’ when they voice their opposition to their country being flooded with savages. My French brother-in-law’s opinion is much stronger than Mr Pitte’s, he has been saying much the same for years.

      These are the people who live outside Paris, in small towns all over France. These are the people who will hold their noses and vote for Le Pen, or for another of his ilk, for want of a decent politician to represent them. The first politician to find a workable solution, like deporting illegals, closing down mosques whose imans prech jihad and breaking up the Muslim ghettoes, will become President of France.

    1. Just wait a sycamore fig pickin’ minute there, Amos.

      Canary in the coal mine my yiddish ass!

      The central idea of the book of your eponymous ancestor is that the big kahuna puts his people on the same level as the nations that surround them—and expects the same morality of them all. Have a read of it.

      And, cousin, these aren’t the same French Jews of Napoleon’s Sanhedrin, or of the supposedly enlightened France during “L’Affaire Dreyfus”; and certainly not the pliant Jews of the Nazi era.

      There is a new morality, conceived during the Dreyfus affair with it’s radicalizing effect on Herzl, gestated in an agonized womb of a doomed Europe and ultimately born with a shout in ‘48 : fuck with the Jews nowadays and someone will hunt you down and kill you.

      Ha Shomer did not disband (completely) with the formation of the Haganah, and the sons and disciples of Amalek will (ten at a time) be hanged again and again and again and again…just as they were in 600 BCE Shushan right through Purimfest 1946 and Munich 72-73.

      Now I wait…

    1. I’m not sure if you’re agreeing with me or not. That sounded like an alien communication beamed to us through the translatatron 2000.

      In any case, the French jews are being run out of town and the French state is doing little to stop it. The French Jews have Isreal to run to, but where are the French going to run, France? Ha ha! The French are doomed and I think that’s super.

    1. Amos,

      I guess that did sound a bit manic, but canaries were taken down the mines for one reason: to die from gas. Too many of my family went that way in the 30’s-40’s, and I, among many, will ensure that never happens again. Hence my fervour.

      These French “miners” can breathe deep in the hole they’ve dug for themselves. I hear the air down there is “appelation controlee”.

    1. The circumstances are different I agree, but it’s the existence of Israel and the Anglo countries as sanctuaries that make it different. Europe is up to it’s old, sordid anti-Semitic tricks. The Jews will be marginal in this one because they’ll be able to get out, I think the bodies ending up in the mass graves this time will be muslim.

      But first they will have to collapse the rule of law and bring about a civil war, that’ll take them at least another 20 years of provocation and escalating terrorism. By that time there won’t be a single synagogue left in Paris. A year after the real fighting starts, not a single mosque either.

      It’s coming.

    1. Amos,

      I fear your analysis is correct. However, at the rate events unfold these days, it may begin to escalate much sooner than 20 years, and those graves will offer rest for the innocent as well as the wicked of all creeds and nations.

      “Among all the things that happen under the sun, this is the worst, that things turn out the same for all. Hence the minds of men are filled with evil, and madness is in their hearts during life; and afterward they go to the dead…They will never again have part in anything that is done under the sun.” [Ecclesiastes]

      There is nothing new under the sun.

    1. #19but where are the French going to run
      Why, they will run off to Israel, the country they have been desperately trying to destroy will be the only country that will have them. The Israelis have empathy with the abandoned refugee. The USA will not have them. Fresh in the minds of Americans is the gratitude the French have displayed for the Americans saving their asses in WWII by spitting in the collective faces of Americans and aiding American enemies non-stop. Fresh in the minds of Americans is the fact that France is run by oil-for-bribes criminals, the leading one being Chirac. Frogs, learn Hebrew and live long or Arabic so you can communicate with your guards.

    1. Stats-they could go to Quebec.  If they come here (North Carolina) I may learn French just so I can mock and torment them.
