Houellebecq’s ‘Submission’ Comes to America

On Jan. 7, the day “Submission” came out in France, the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo ran a caricature of the author on its cover. Bleary-eyed and sporting a wizard’s hat, the novelist was portrayed as a lugubrious prophet spouting asides like “In 2015 I’ll lose my teeth” or, more pointedly, “In 2022 I’ll observe Ramadan.”

On the same day two gunmen of the Islamic faith attacked the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo, killing 12 people. Mr. Houellebecq, who lost a friend—the economist Bernard Maris—in the attack, has been under round-the-clock police protection since.

Marine Le Pen set to face trial for inciting racial hatred after she compared Muslims who pray in the streets to Nazis

    If I could draw, I would make a picture of Marine Le Pen being burned on a pyre in the manner of Jeanne d’Arc with the title, “Le Pen ne se soumettrait”. Fucking French surrender monkeys.

  • Shebel

    I read the whole thing . I have no problem with burning the French.
    Their language is much more intelligible when they are squealing like pigs.

  • Brett_McS

    “Marine Le Pen set to face trial…”. But I thought they were against her becoming the next President?

    • David Murrell

      The trial will backfire, to be sure.

    Hopefully in this case, Le Pen is mightier than the sword.

    That’s quite the flattering photo of Houellebecq…Seriously!

    France is a two party tyranny. the place has become a fascistic little shit-hole run by a clique of cowards whose only aim consists of getting rich by selling France’s heritage to the highest Arab bidder.

    Manuel Valls, one of the three little pigs along with Hollande and Cazenuve, is on the record as stating he’d cancel the elections in 2017 if it looked like LePen would win.

    So the excitable little Spaniard from Bar-TH-elona will prevent the rise of the ‘fascist’ FN by pulling a *Franco* until such time as France votes the proper way…his way!.

    Amazing. He’ll cancel legitimate expressions of the poplar will in order to prevent ‘fascism’

    Le Pen is facing a flat-out, full-blown stalinist show trial

  • Shebel

    I compare Muslims that pray in the streets to pigs. Is this OK?

    • Raymond Cameron

      No: it insults the pigs.

    • Xavier

      Shouldn’t the comparison be in the other direction? Shouldn’t we say, “Those n are so low they are like Moslems raising their asses in the street?”
