Skip to comments.French voters have had enough of François Hollande and his government

On Sunday, an estimated 150,000 people marched in Paris and gathered in the Place de la Bastille to listen to Jean-Luc Mélenchon, the leader of the Left Front. Afterwards , the Socialist Party officials were prompt to call the event highly divisive for the left. Accusations of populism and gauchisme (unrealistic policies) also rapidly surfaced from Solférino, the Socialist headquarters. To paraphrase Bertolt Brecht: would it not be easier for the government to dissolve the people and elect another?

Commies vs. Limousine Liberals.
Enjoy the show.
The spirit of Mr. Lenin must be in the crowd somewhere.
(And he’s probably laughing hiss a%^ off.)
Any pictures showing muslims in the crowds?
Welcome to Obamaville Frenchie!
Pray for America to Wake Up
Like the Titantic....Watch them scurry to rearrange the deck chairs!
Which is what the EU and US are busily doing, importing Muslims there and Hispanics here, but with the same objective: a voting block that will vote for socialism.
Miss Me Yet?
President Hollande of France recently got a whiff of what is coming from an open letter addressed to him by a 20-year old student named Clara G.
This will probably shock you, but it is mainly for fiscal reasons, simply because I do not feel like working all my life to pay taxes, a large part of which will only service the 1.9 trillion Euros of debt that your generation has kindly left us. If these borrowings had at least been invested to prepare the future of the country, if I was getting a small benefit from them, it would not be a problem for me to help repay them. But this debt only helped your generation live above its means, and assure itself a generous social safety net which I will not have.
My labor and my taxes will also pay for your generations retirement which you did not bother to plan, and for all the health and support expenses incurred by the elderly who in less than twenty years will be a majority of the population. So what will be left for me to live and to raise my children?
And, if by some improbable miracle, I managed to make a lot of money, I know already that not only will I be paying most of it in taxes, but I will also endure the general reproach of my compatriots and your personal disdain.
This is why, Mr. President, I am thinking of leaving France. And why your [government] should be less worried about the dangers of immigration and more concerned with the threats of emigration by the youth of this country. Where would I go? Perhaps to Germany, a country that you frequently disparage but which looks like a confident country. Or perhaps further, to Canada or Australia. Or to a developing country. To Africa, why not?
Yes, I want to go to a country where there is growth, where wages are rising, where being rich is not a deadly sin, a country in short where the individual and the society have confidence that tomorrow will be brighter than today.

Quoting Bertolt Brecht is like quoting graffiti.
“would it not be easier for the government to dissolve the people and elect another?”
It should be pointed out every day this is exactly what our ruling is doing to us. Genocide can be accomplished without gas chambers, and that is what the political class is carrying out against white Christians of the West.
These protesters apparently are the same ones that would picket their bank when they overdraft their account!
Absolutely perfect letter, couldn’t have said it better myself!
The fellow who called Netanyahu a liar to Obama?
Uh, I believe they are protesting against Hollande because he's not left enough...
FTA: "We can't take those austerity policies any more".
That letter also applies to quite a few of the baby boomer generation within the US. You know, the ones with a bumper sticker that reads, I am spending my childrens inheritance. Nice group of ingrates they are and they deserve what is coming their way.
The French people really are a helpless lot, ever since they chopped off Louis’ head
M. Hollande won by a pretty good margin, no? He campaigned forthrightly on all the craziness he intended, didn’t he?
Now, like another famous (fictitious) Frenchman, they are “Shocked! Shocked!”
