Pictures From A French Mob - Watch As Sarkozy Bravely Retreats From Furious Frenchmen

Tyler Durden's picture


Despite groundless media reports that French president Sarkozy, who is up for reelection in April, is gaining on his challenger Hollande who has promised to undo virtually all the European fiscal pacts attained through blood, sweat, tears and countless contradictory headlines (more here), it seems that Sarkozys' appreciation by his fellow citizens has hit rock bottom. As AP reports, "Several hundred angry protesters have booed President Nicolas Sarkozy, forcing him to take refuge in a cafe protected by riot police as he campaigned in France's southwest Basque country." It appears that the European discontent is finally seeping rather aggressively into the core, and the political overhaul which many assume will take the Greek model of bloodless technocratic coups by banker appointed puppets may just not work too well elsewhere. In other news, the French now surrender to the French.


Riot police surrounded the Bar du Palais where Sarkozy took refuge Thursday from the protesters who booed him throughout his visit to Bayonne. Sarkozy claimed the protesters were organized by the rival Socialist Party.


Inside the cafe, Sarkozy denounced "the violence of a minority and their unacceptable behavior."


The conservative Sarkozy trails Socialist candidate Francois Hollande, the front-runner in the two pronged April and May presidential election. Sarkozy declared his candidacy on Feb. 15.

A couple days ago, Swinehella Merdekel was attacked by a waiter, who threw several beersteins at her.
Obviously, the MSM quietly swept the incident under the rug.

Silver is experiencing volatility as the price is torn between infinite paper and declining physical supplies.

Be prepared for it to break down towards zero.

I agree in the long run mosely but I think we still have awhile before it happens. Their is a third option too where premiums start raising faster than spot price.

OT, but I know Ahmeexnal will love it:

Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz...described by the Jewish Daily Forward as a “proud Jewess”...upcoming appearance at a fundraiser hosted by an American Muslim leader who was placed on the Federal Terrorist Watch List...track record of defending accused terrorists and associating with Muslim Brotherhood-backed groups.

I imagine that in the not-too-distant future being placed on the Federal Terrorist Watch List will be a mark of honor.  An old friend of mine was  proud of her place on Nixon's enemies list (but I can't find her name on it - she must have been using her maiden name).

Maybe Sarko thought he was being surrounded by Germans. That would explain his natural flight response.

Not so much.

The crowd is largely made up of Europeans. From Euskali.

Funnily enough, they are the same people who routed hard the German Carolus Magnus rear guard led by Frank Roland.

The Indo Europeans were so ashamed by this battle that they invented they lost it to Muslims, who were a formidable force in those days. This fabrication was collected under the song of Roland name.

But no, the Indo European Germans got their ass kicked by European Euskalis.

And it seems that once Europeans are giving hard time to Indo Europeans.

Would you wake up already?  The tired meme of the French running away is the result of freemasons' psyops.


Just like how these pukes were backing Hitler from the US, they were doing the same from France.  The entire 'world' war was architected and manipulated, in France as much as elsewhere.


Or are you proud of how the Americans nuked Japan and built concentration camps for German prisoners, killing them by the MILLIONS?  Who should feel more shame from all that?  FUCK AMERIKKKA and its dumb 'pride'.

Rich and powerful people meeting in secret is just a conspiracy?  A secret that big could never be kept. So the argument goes, in complete denial of both the Manhattan Project and the exposure of the Mafia in the 60s.  Examples of widely known secrets that were held for a very long time.
