France Commemorates D-Day With Pacifist Moonbattery


Yesterday was the 67th anniversary of D-Day, on which 1,465 American soldiers died to liberate France from German National Socialists. The French government saw fit to commemorate the date by allowing a moonbat artist to clutter the beach with this tasteless desecration:

How incorrect of the heroes of Utah and Omaha Beach to indulge in global violence against the Nazi occupation. But they shouldn’t take this gob of spit to the face personally. France allowed the same Arab to commemorate the final victory over the Third Reich with this:

The statues, exhibited here on the 66th anniversary of the Allied victory over Nazi Germany in World War II, aim at symbolizing ‘the never ending horrors of war’.

France was a great power once. It fought valiantly in WWI, losing a great many troops. The country reacted to this loss of life by embracing pacifism. Schoolchildren were taught not of the heroism of those who defended their country, but of the futility of war. The next time the German invaders came, France offered no serious resistance, having been corroded to uselessness by moonbattery. Tragically, the French seem to have learned nothing from this.

Next time, the USA and Britain might not be around to save them. Because the rot is eating us too now.

But what caused art to become so insular?
