Nicolas Sarkozy was infamous for his culturally poisoned comments about Africans, African French men and other French ethnic groups. However, his biggest mistake was austerity, siding with international criminal corporations against his own middle class. The 99% have struck back in France and it will spread across Europe.
Mild and affable, the president-elect inherits a country deep in debt and divided over how to integrate immigrants while preserving its national identity. Markets will closely watch his initial moves as president.
Sounds like someone I know over here in the States. On the other hand, Mr. Sarkozy's strategy to fleece the middle class while distracting them with Cultural Poisoning that would cause them to hate their fellow middle class citizens stands in disrepute.
"Austerity can no longer be inevitable!" Hollande declared in his victory speech after a surprising a campaign that saw him transform from an unremarkable figure to an increasingly statesmanlike one.
The world's 99%, thanks to the internet, is catching on to Austerity, know as trickle down here in the states. Republican Austerity is about to be pulled out by its roots. Reaganesque tinkling on the middle class can no longer be inevitable in America either.
Speaking to exuberant crowds, Hollande portrayed himself as a vehicle for change across Europe.
"In all the capitals ... there are people who, thanks to us, are hoping, are looking to us, and want to finish with austerity," he told supporters early Monday at Paris' Place de la Bastille. "You are a movement lifting up everywhere in Europe, and perhaps the world."
Sounds like some countries here in the America's. In North America and South America the 99% are on the move. Like in the French revolution, if you tell the people to eat cake, they may well shove it down your throat!
Look at Sakozy crowds and Republican Palin mobs here in America. Compared to Hollande supporters, notice any similarities?
The 99% in America has helped the 99% in France and the French results will translate into progressive results in our 2012 elections.
