I should not be shocked by infamous behavior, when it comes from members of the EU's ruling class. The EU is the natural home for every native intellectual enemy of traditional Western Civilization. Its advocates and princes are not only socialists, but scoundrels of the worst sort.
Recalling a Scottish host who served him a plate of Scotland’s national dish, haggis and neaps... Chirac took a swipe at British cuisine. “You can’t trust people who cook as badly as that,” he declared.Hospitality is one of the very few universal moral values. The relationship of guest and host is almost the only thing that is as sacred in Africa as in China, as important in Scotland as in France. Violators of the law of hospitality earn for themselves a deep and proper infamy.
What kind of a man insults a dinner that he was served as a guest? And not just the dinner, but his host? And not just his host, but his host's family, and entire people? I should not be shocked, but I am.
I am absolutely sure that traditional Frenchmen -- the kind of Frenchmen who made The Three Musketeers a best-seller for six generations -- would never engage in such behavior. It is only these base creatures, these EUnuchs, who cast aside their traditions as easily as they wish to cast aside that liberty for which the best men of Europe once fought and died.
Ex pede Herculeum: we know the whole from its parts. If this is the best man of EUrope, then let us keep the Europe of old. It may have produced wars and it may have produced worse, but at least it also produced gentlemen and men of honor.
