I turned off Fox online and its chattering females who were unbearable and turned on Le Monde "en direct" (live from Chicago), and its chattering males and females, who were almost as unbearable, but at least it was in French. They had a white-haired smirking know-it-all American journalist named Axel Krause speaking flat but grammatically correct French and explaining how the attempts by the Republicans to destroy Obama failed. What attempts? What did they do? Did they tell the truth about black-on-white crime? Did they support a stop to all immigration? Did they tell women their primary responsibility is to care for their children and to see to it that their children have a father and a mother who are married? Did they denounce women in the military? Did they deplore the demographic disaster befalling America as we metamorphose into a black/brown/feminized country of repulsive jigging rappers, beer-clogged sexually super-active females whose only goal is to suppress the white male whom they hate (but with whom they sleep, often in groups) and beer-clogged eager-to-be-emasculated young males? Did they denounce the refusal of the media to mention race whenever there was a black or Muslim crime? Did the Republicans do any of this? Possibly here and there an occasional pundit wrote a perceptive article. But not as a committed party. Romney's a bright affable American with white skin and lots of children. He did not have the guts to tell the truth forcefully enough to win the big liberal States that have the electoral college votes. But here's a question: if he had focused more intently on issues critical to the salvation of Western Civilization, would he have won? Theoretically yes. But if those big States are inhabited by leftists, nothing Romney could have said would have changed the outcome. In other words, there may not be a way to retrieve the older traditional culture in any significant way.
I have no affection for the cynically street-smart Christine Ockrent but she told the truth - women and Latinos counted more in this election than ever before, and Romney basically is the last hurrah of the white American male. Furthermore, since he did win the popular vote, this is payback for Bush's controversial victory in 2000 when Al Gore won the popular vote. The French do not like or understand this electoral college system. It depends on who benefits from it.
Update November 9, 2012 - The above information was inaccurate. Romney did not win the popular vote, Obama did by about three million. But the media were announcing a Romney popular victory before all the votes had been counted. There are still many votes to be counted, and they will probably be in Obama's favor.
Here we have no "Résistance", no Marine Le Pen, no Bloc Identitaire, no Riposte Laïque, no moral force strong enough to fight the sacralization of immoral practices, despite our many churches and supposed religious fervor. But only time will tell if things are really as bad as conservative bloggers say they are. Will the Tea-Partiers become, in the next four years, the conservative revolutionaries we are urgently in need of?
French reporters spoke of the "turning point" in the campaign. Guess what that was. Hurricane Sandy! So the determination of the Democrats to prove that Sandy was not Katrina because Obama was not Bush is what gave them their victory. I suppose everybody thinks Obama did great and wondrous things after hurricane Sandy. Some New Yorkers might disagree. Read this from November 4 about those who are still without housing:
And this entry from VFR with several links to articles about the disgraceful but not surprising looting that's been afflicting certain neighborhoods (note: the first two links are repeated).
As I post, Obama is delivering a typical victory speech. His diction is excellent, his English more than acceptable. I shudder when I remember that George W. Bush could barely answer questions from Bob Costas during the Olympics, and that he appeared almost catatonic at the second debate in 2004. The Republicans in America are responsible for their failure to do their duty and uphold positions that are just, noble and patriotic because of their fear of appearing racist, sexually repressed, xenophobic, misogynist or just plain out-of-touch with the times. And there's another reason for their failure: in their hearts, they really want to please the leftists, not out of fear, but out of admiration for the overwhelming cultural seductiveness of the Left as it transforms the country from a great Christian power into an adolescent's hedonistic paradise. Today, the fictional villains in cowboy movies, who were punished by law and order agents, have been replaced by real rapists, muggers, and murderers whose victims are punished by the coagulating totalitarian forces closing in on the dying republic.
Now it's on to the next giant step down for mankind.
P.S. In his concession speech Romney said:
- We look to our pastors and priests and rabbis and counselors of all kinds to testify of the enduring principles upon which our society is built: honesty, charity, integrity and family.
Thank goodness he did not add "imams". At least he had the decency to stick with Western religions.
P.P.S. I mentioned Marine Le Pen. But did you know that 67% of the Front National wanted an Obama victory! French readers can check this out.
