French Flags are flying again in France

AT LAST ! :)

It’s the first time since  that dark dark night of the 6th  May 2012 that I dare hope again. 

The socialist/left  alliance had just won the élections  (97+ % of the huge muslim community in France had voted for them) and a sea of Arab/Islamist/Jihadist/ flags obscured the one or two timid displays of the  French tri-colore that night at the Place de la Bastille in Paris.  An omen-inous metaphor for what  is happening in France now.

But, thanks not last  to two very brave French,  Christine Tassin from Resistance Republicaine  and Pierre Cassen  from Riposte Laique,  France is perhaps not lost after all. This here was the first video, released right after the march against Islamic Fascism. It’s raw and only very roughly edited as is their love for the freedom and dignity of their France: (*)

Not Waving But Drowning

Nobody heard him, the dead man,
But still he lay moaning:
I was much further out than you thought
And not waving but drowning.

Poor chap, he always loved larking
And now he's dead
It must have been too cold for him his heart gave way,
They said.

Oh, no no no, it was too cold always
(Still the dead one lay moaning)
I was much too far out all my life
And not waving but drowning.

Pssst....France might be waving again  and not drowning....;)

"Mon  objective a toujours été, non pas avec QUI  je m’allies, 
mais POURQUOI je m’allies. S’allier ce n’est pas s’aligner!"
(Anne Zelenski )
(my objective has always been, not with WHOM I ally myself, but WHY I make an alliance.
To ally oneself is not the same thing as to align oneself).

(*) Update 25.11.2012
Here is a more "polished" video of this march. And the music is better:  as courageous as my friends are, some of them just are not the best singers ;)
