Leftists always love to posture. They feel good letting everybody know how awesome they are. They care for the poor, the needy, the oppressed, the downtrodden, the unlucky, the little guy. They know what’s best and they want to help, and they will let anyone that gets in their way have it. And when you are dealing with leftists run counties, the hubris and narcissism takes new meaning. That is, until it hits them in their personal pocket book. As long as someone else pays the price, the left is all for that shit. And nobody embodies this philosophy like the French. Case in point the anger on the left about Putin’s moves on the Ukraine that all the leftists are spouting. That is, until it hits them in the pocketbook. I believe it was Mao that said a capitalist will sell you the rope you want to hang him with, but I think today, that philosophy applies mostly to the progressive movement, which is for noble causes, especially when it affords an opportunity to enriched themselves doing it, and more importantly, as long as they don’t have to pay for it in any way (except when government forces everyone to suffer, which then somehow brings out the hubris and narcissism all over again).
Personally I could care less about France selling the Russians amphibs. I actually hope the Russians use them someday to invade some French colony or France itself. They will be greeted by the white flag waving cheese eating surrender monkeys as heros I bet. Oceania could use a good war.
Remember how progressive Hollande won in France and immediately, in the name of social justice and fairness, implemented a 75% tax on the evil rich? Remember them demonizing those amongst the evil rich that opted to move elsewhere to avoid the fisting? Depardieu is now a Russian or Belgian because of that nonsense tax. People like him where called evil monsters. And then we find out that at least one of the elite that told the French this was a good idea didn’t believe it was a good idea that they had to pay that tax. And this guy wasn’t just a bystander, he was responsible for shafting the people trying to avoid Leviathan’s attempt to rob them:
France’s former budget minister Jérôme Cahuzac, who until two weeks ago was responsible for cracking down on tax evasion, admitted to having hidden funds in a secret Swiss bank on Tuesday. Judges have now placed Cahuzac under formal investigation.
France’s former budget minister Jérôme Cahuzac admitted on Tuesday that he had held a secret bank account abroad – a fact that he has strenuously denied until now.
His admission comes two weeks after he resigned from the Socialist government over allegations that he had siphoned funds into a UBS bank account in Switzerland in order to avoid paying taxes in France.
The allegations were published by French investigative website Mediapart in December 2012, prompting prosecutors to open an inquiry.
On Tuesday he was forced to admit to investigating magistrates that he had lied and was placed under formal investigation for tax fraud.
C’est pas possible! C’est la merde!
Yeah, well. What’s new? One set of rules for us, and another for them. Well, in this case the rules simply don’t apply to them. But everyone else that does what they do is a monster! Fuck I hate collectivists.
