French presidential candidate launches ‘Ni*gas in Paris’ Ad campaign
The Daily Caller ^ | 04/23/2012 | Taylor Bigler

Posted on 04/25/2012 11:25:47 PM PDT by Cincinna

   French Socialist presidential candidate François Hollande debuted a campaign video set to Jay-Z and Kanye West’s hit song, “Ni*gas In Paris.” The video, which translates in English to “48 Hours with François Hollande,” features the candidate making campaign stops and his supporters excitedly talking about him.

While there are moments of the song that are blocked out with audio clips from his speeches and supporters, most of the song’s extremely explicit lyrics (“ni**a,” “motherf***er,” “s**t,” to name a few) are still in tact. Although the song is in English, the explicit words are hardly new to French ears. 

“48 Hours with François Hollande” features supporters of several different races, and the video could be designed to show that Hollande is the candidate black immigrants should support over President Nicolas Sarkozy, who was elected during a time of racial tension in Paris.   

After mostly Northern African immigrants burned Parisian suburbs for days on end in 2005, then- interior minister Sarkozy’s popularity soared when he said that he would clean out the suburbs “with a power hose.” 

“Got my ni*gas in Paris,” reads one lyric, “And they going gorillas.” 

  The video currently has over 85,000 views on YouTube, and has a sizable number of “dislikes.”

This is one if the most despicable race-baiting ploys ever by lefists seeking power.

But what can you expects from a double talking hypocritical Socialist candidate running in France, a country that still has a dessert on every café menu called “tête de Negre” literally, Negro head, a large scoop of vanilla ice cream covered with chocolate sauce!

Oui, mes amis! Hollande is really the black man’s, read illegal immigrant’s best friend. He wants to give them the right to vote!

The only office this guy has ever held was mayor of a small town in southern France, popoulation 17,000.

Yup! A socialist who never had a real job in his life. Never elected to any real office, never worked in the private sector. His résumé: Head of the Socialist Party for ten years. (community organizer?)

Sound familiar?

Pauvre France! It will take a miracle for Sarko to win. The debate is Thursday, May 2.

In my years spent living in France, I never saw that on any cafe menu.

With regard to the language used in the video, English profanities have far less impact in non-English speaking countries than they do here.

Still hoping Sarko pulls it off. This ad only confirms to me that only a madman would vote for the aptly named ‘Flamby’.

I must have visited every imaginable café , and rest assured, Tête de Nègre is a café classic.

And Flamby, a myshy pudding dessert is the least if it.

Read what his fellow Socialists have to say about their candidate: (with friends like this, etc)

La Gauche on Hollande:
from Atlantico
 
Martine Aubry  (futur Premier ministre ?) : “Couille molle, enfoiré, niveau zéro de la politique .” ( dans les couloirs du PS.Propos rapportés par l’Express”) . “A mon arrivée en 2008, le Parti était un champ de ruines. Je vais devoir déboucher les chiottes moi-même … On lui a confié le PS, il nous a rendu la SFIO…. Nous n’étions pas crédibles pour les Français…C’est un homme de coups, il n’est jamais  sur le fond. Sous Jospin, il n’était pas au gouvernement et ne se sentait pas au niveau “
 
Ségolène Royal (présidente de l’Assemblée Nationale ?) : “Quelqu’un peut me dire ce qu’il a fait pendant 30 ans ?  Son point faible, c’est l’inaction … Un président “normal” ? Pour postuler à la magistrature suprême, il faut au contraire des qualités anormales, exceptionnelles” .
 
Arnaud Montebourg (Ministre de l’Industrie ?) :  “ Hollande, c’est Flamby ! “ .” Le principal défaut de Ségoléne, c’est Hollande, son compagnon “.”Je n’ai pas oublié qu’il a immobilisé le parti pendant dix ans. Comment peut-il aspirer à diriger la France ?”  (A propos de Manuel Valls, il a dit : ”Il n’a qu’un pas à faire pour aller à l’UMP, le camp de la bêtise) 
 
Laurent Fabius (A Matignon? Au Quai d’Orsay ?)  : ”A-t-on jamais caché un éléphant derrière une fraise des bois ? Franchement ,vous imaginez “Monsieur “Petite Blague” en président de la République ? On rêve “
 
Pierre Moscovici (directeur de campagne de Hollande, futur ministre) : ”Hollande, c’est le premier secrétaire qui a tout râté “
 
Manuel Valls (Intérieur ? Education Nationale ?) : ”Les vieilles idées des années 70 – les 35 heures, la retraite à 60 ans- ce n’est plus possible …Notre réponse ne peut pas être la dépense publique …Je suis favorable à une régle d’or “
 
Guillaume Bachelay (la plume de Laurent Fabius) : “ Chaque matin, il pense à la présidence en nous rasant “
 
Jean-Luc Mélenchon (votera Hollande au second tour) : “ Un capitaine de pédalo dans la saison des tempêtes ” .”Une attitude hautaine à l’égard de la gauche qui commence à être insupportable. S’il ne sait pas qu’il y a des communistes en France, je me demande comment il va s’y prendre pour les faire voter en sa faveur “
 
Eva Joly (Votera Hollande) : “ Le parti socialiste est du bois dont on fait les flûtes “
 
Cécile Duflot (ministre de l’Ecologie ?), à propos du programme de Hollande : ” Un bon vieux projet socialiste de relance sur la consommation “
 
Daniel Cohn- Bendit : ”Hollande se ségolénise “ 
 
C’est encore Hollande que ses camarades aubryistes attanquent en s‘en prenant à son grand ami Jean- Pierre Jouyet, président de l’Autorité des marchés financiers et ex -ministre de Sarkozy, qui votera pour le candidat PS : “ Sa proposition d’un gouvernement d’union nationale ? Il n’a pas de leçon à donner à la gauche “ (Anne Hidalgo, porte parole de Martine Aubry). “Il y a quelque chose d’assez insupportable d’entendre  celui qui a été ministre dans un des gouvernement  les plus à droite de la Ve République (Benoit Hamon et Henri Emmanuelli) .”Jouyet dirait –il tout ce que Hollande penserait tout bas ?“ (Jean Christophe Cambadélis, Strauss-Kahnien rallié à Hollande).
 
Ainsi font, font, font les petits flingueurs qui voudraient diriger la France… Certes dans chaque parti, y compris l’UMP, il y a des dissensions, des coups de savate et des peaux de banane mais a-t-on jamais vu pareil bloc de mépris tomber sur la tête de son champion ?

In my years spent living in France, I never saw that on any cafe menu. With regard to the language used in the video, English profanities have far less impact in non-English speaking countries than they do here.

Not only that, but even in English speaking countries that are not America. For instance, I was born and raised in Kenya (going to private schools with British/Scottish heritage in Nairobi), before going to the US to study/work. During my time there (I left the US 5 or so years ago to pursue my fortune in international private equity/fund management) I have only experienced what some would call 'racism' twice. The first was when some sot, who happened to be African-American, was trying to explain to me how I sold his ancestors to slavery (after which I proceeded to elucidate how his ancestors came from the Western part of Africa while I was from the Eastern part, and telling him how sorry I was that my ancestors did not have the opportunity to be the ones that sold his to slavery - needless to say he was not happy). The second time was when some sot, who happened to have white skin, used the N word for me. Reaction? Absolutely none. The word has absolutely no emotional significance to me ...it is tantamount to calling me a 'red-speckled nightingale,' or maybe 'two scoops of blue-berry pie.' So I just gave the person a blank look before I started laughing and walked on.

Certain words or phrases that may have a certain context (and emotional poignancy) in one geographic area can have absolutely none in another.

Ahh the soothing strains of African classical music.

Mozart is so lame compared to their stellar musical compositions

Il n’ya pas de quoi.

Merci pour les prières. On a besoin.

Il ya toujours l’espoir. Valérie Giscard d’Estang votera Sarkozy.

I understand your experience but France us different.

There has always been a love/hate relation ship with America, and an obsession with African Americans.

The Trayvon Martin story has received almost as much media coverage in France as in the US. The French still view America through the lens if Alabams 1955.

This Hollande racist video is the N word heard round the world. And everyone in France knows exactly what it means. If you were to use it, you would be viewed as just another American racist persecuting AFrican Americans, with the whole slavery story thrown in, along with stealing the land from the “native” Americans, or the casino owning Americans as they are now known.

See this for an example… (Warning: Very very very bad language!)

Googled it - wow, in five years of living in the south of France, I never saw it. Then again, I usually never got past creme brulee on the dessert menu :)

this may backfire and push the “not left” section of France’s voters to vote for Sarkozy

Thanks. That is hilarious. But the Japanese almost all speak English. I think this is a parody. The Japanese as a group are the most racist people I’ve ever encountered. Racist against all non Japanese. They all believe they are the superior race.
