French politicians protest over Muslim street prayers in Paris

The politicians, wearing tricolour sashes of office and singing the national anthem, disrupted about 200 worshippers on a street in Clichy.

Police kept the two groups apart but some scuffles broke out.

  • Politicians protesting? You’re the lawmakers you nincompoops — so make a law already!

  • Isn’t a little too late for that, though?

    It is not every day that you see a SCUFFLE breaking out.
    They are fucking deadly.

    “”They were singing the Marseillaise, throwing it in our faces, even though we’re French people here. We’re French. Long live France!” he said.”

    Either you believe you are French or you believe they were throwing “la Marseillaise” in their faces. The two ideas are not compatible.

    By the way, there are some important words in “La Marseillaise” that speak to foreign invaders:

    “Marchons, marchons!
    Qu’un sang impur
    Abreuve nos sillons!”

    which Wikipedia translates as follows:

    “Let’s march, let’s march!
    Let an impure blood
    Soak our fields!”

    Check out the whole anthem. The words are as relevant today, perhaps more, as they were in 1792 when they were first written.

      From the Tombs of Tutankhamun
      To the shores of Tripoli;
      We fight those dirty muslims
      In the air, on land, and sea;
      First to fight for right and freedom
      And to keep our honor clean;
      We are proud to claim the title
      Of United States Marine.
