The AngryFrenchGuy has been declared a Traitor to the Nation!

with 33 comments

In a post called Les Traîtres du Français about a blogger called Un Homme en Colère (isn’t this just wonderful!) writes:

“It goes without saying that I have no more respect for someone who claims to defend French in English than I do for someone who bombs a country in the name of peace or a rapist who rapes in the name of virginity.”

And later: “What you are doing is SHAMEFUL, a disaster. At least it is only small scale, but your contribution annihilates all the efforts of hundreds of Québécois like me and others who are trying to make French Québec’s only official Language.”

Goddam. Fighting off Barbara Kay on one side and now these clowns on the other. I must be doing something right.

The debate has spread to other blogs, including Renart L’éveillé‘s.

  1. “I understand the “French only” movement, as it’s one of the last things to hold onto”

    i beg to differ – i would suggest that freedom is the “only” thing to hold on to.

    learning to speak another language is admirable and recommended but doesn’t cut any ice (and we’ve got plenty) around here. at least not where i come from.

    as you are a citizen of canada’s best friend i offer you this:
    The ability and need to express oneself is an important characteristic of human beings. Justice Thurgood Marshall of the United States Supreme Court perhaps said it best when considering the constitutional guarantee of freedom of speech under the First Amendment to the United States constitution:

    The First Amendment serves not only the needs of the polity but also those of the human spirit – the spirit that demands self-expression. Such expression is an integral part of the development of ideas and a sense of identity. To suppress expression is to reject the basic human desire for recognition and affront the individual’s worth and dignity.

    i don’t care what language you translate this into – it rings true. people who want to speak english should speak english – people who want to speak french should speak french – the rest will take care of itself. by this i mean – the advantage will go to those who speak both.

    madames et monsieurs – faites vos jeux.

    “The answer is simple and will be obvious to many: Quebec’s independence. This represents the only way quebeckers (Québécois) will finally send a clear message to the effect that french is the official language here. No individual initiative (sorry Mr. Kondaks) or language law can be successful as a ‘replacement solution’.”

    For the record, as I’ve written here on this forum, I’m for individual initiative (freedom of the individual) AND Quebec independence as the solution. BUT: those two concepts must go hand in hand.

  3. Hé les gars !
    Let’s open up the “spoiled” referendum ballots !
    Let’s see if we really are different than those 3rd world countries where you get to cast your ballot beside some dork holding a machine gun!
    I think all the “separatistes”,”souvrainistes” or whatever u guys call yourselves these days would upchuck their “pork & beans” once they see the truth behind the “so-called” spoiled ballots.
    Me thinks they were all “No” votes, but I could be wrong. (just teasing you guys… know damn well I’m right !) Why do you think they want them to be destroyed? ( again….smack of 3rd world country)
    Allez les boys, continu la bataille ! La “Partition” s’en viens…. on va etre capable de vivres en paix et
    dans plusieres langues, avec “the Big end of the stick” of the Quebec economy…….not to mention better roads in the part of Quebec that chooses to remain Canadien.
    Vivre le Canada !
