Right-Wing Bigot Commits Le Suicide To Wake Up France About Les Gays
There are many wonderful ways to voice your dissent on political issues of the day. You could, for example, put a bumper sticker on your car, which is highly effective. Or you could write a sternly worded letter to the powers that be. Or wave signs. Or put on a funny-looking hat with teabags hanging from it. But you know what is ALL KINDS OF FUCKED UP?Shooting yourself in the head on the altar at Notre Dame (the actual Notre Dame, not that college in the middle of Nowhere, Indiana) because of THE GAYS. That, friends, is ALL KINDS OF FUCKED UP. Unless you're Madame La le Bigot, in which case, it is a "spectacular" and peachy way to wake up your fellow countrymen to the imminent threat of les gays.
French National Front leader Marine le Pen has saluted the acts of a far-right activist who shot himself dead at Notre Dame. The man had earlier called on his blog for "spectacular action" to protect France's identity. [...]
The suicide was hailed as a political gesture by Marine Le Pen, leader of France's far-right National Front. "All respect to Dominique Venner whose final, eminently political act was to try to wake up the people of France," Le Pen said on Twitter, signing her initials to indicate that she had written the entry personally.
Le Pen's far-right party, running primarily on an anti-immigration platform but which also opposes French government efforts to legalize gay marriage, is the third-most popular in the country.
The man was identified by police as 78-year-old Dominique Venner, a historian known for his far-right publications. A note on Venner's blog, dated May 21st, had strongly criticized a law to allow same-sex marriage that was passed by the Socialist government last week.
Um, we are a little bit at a loss and don't understand why Monsieur Venner felt the need to kill himself instead of just spewing incoherent hate slogans outside a court house or something, like our bigots do here in America. Sure, that hasn't really stemmed the tide of states legalizing marry-whomever-the-hell-you-love marriage, but at least they feel they've made their point -- even if it's a really stupid one -- and no one has to die, and also the priests don't have to wipe your skull bits from the sacristy.
