"Nich set me up!"

Okay, that reference to the Marion Barry oldie-but-goodie is a stretch, but it appears the French believe:

- Socialist party candidate for president Dominique Strauss-Kahn is assuredly guilty; and

- President Nikolas Sarkozy had to have set him up.

The more you hear about these two guys, the more you start to wonder: Why couldn't both be true?

You know, both were true for Mayor Barry ...

Sarko should have known the old lech would rape anything he could get his hands on!

Shame on you, Sarko!

Wandrin said...

It wouldn't surprise me, although instead of Sarkozy setting him up exactly i'd be more inclined to the idea of him taking advantage of the the opportunity presented to take Kahn's safety net away.

Tommy said...

Do you need to be Jewish to be head of state in Europe nowadays? In France, it's Sarko vs Strauss-Kahn. In Britain, Moses-descended Cameron vs Ed Miliband.

It's lucky the police got him on the plane. If he'd got to Europe he would get Polanski-style immunity.

Reading between the lines, DSK seems to have what people these days would call a problem with boundaries. The idea that he would just violently rape a passerby, as it were, is not credible. Yet police are said to be examining blood stains, so this appears to be more than a case of slap and tickle, or what James Ellroy might call 'weenie wagging'.

It looks as if DSK likes to escalate a consensual encounter into something more forceful. I am trying to mind the delicate sensibilities of Steve's readers here, so please excuse the lame metaphors, but it seems as if madame may have consented to second base but DSK wanted a
home run.

If it was a setup wouldn't they have used a person they would figure to be more enticing, rather than some pure blooded West African? Unless they knew him to have a case of jungle fever, that is.
Jerks have a habit of setting themselves up without any help.
Maybe he's bi-polar and was in a manic state at the time; doesn't sound like a rational episode.
Judging from his pictures it must have been a very traumatic experience to see this fuddy-duddy with no clothes on. The maid will probably have to have therapy for the rest of her life.

Truth said...

Wow, Steven you got it!

They framed a guilty man...like the cops with OJ.

It's times like this that help me realize why I let you have my great material for free!

BHL leaps to DSK's defense:
"I hold it against the American judge ... to take him for a subject of justice like any other"

God forbid he be treated like a mere mortal.

Trade him for Polanski.

Please notice that I don't have to apologize for any stupid posting I made. I didn't speculate wildly about French Jews. I didn't speculate about this presumed Hispanic maid. It turns out she's Senegalese.

Others however were not so circumspect. I expect there to be a series of apologies for premature and groundless judgements.

What? No? More comments, on even less evidence?

Personally I don't have any knowledge of high level French politics and/or high level IMF functioning. I don't know Sarkozy or Strauss-Kahn. I'm innocent of any insider knowledge whatsoever.

I am not qualified to comment on this murky affair. So I keep quiet.

Best comment on the affair, from VFR:

Tim W. writes:

For decades elite liberals in the media and academia have been ignoring the enormous number of rapes of white women by blacks. Instead, they hoped for the Great White Rapist (or Rapists) of a woman of color. Their hopes came crashing down when the Tawana Brawley case and the Duke gang rape turned out to be hoaxes. Now they may finally have their rapist, but guess what? It’s one of them! An arrogant, spoiled, wealthy, politically correct limousine liberal. The disappointment must be terrible.

And now that very pretty girl, who has spoken before about her attempted rape by him, is speaking out, but this time without his name being bleeped out.

Her Socialist pol mom was incredibly naive. I've been quite surprised at just how woefully naive most of the French elite sound. Between this guy and Polanski, how did the French acquire their reputation for sophistication in sexual matters? It's the opposite!

Marine Le Pen and Bernard Debré seem to have common sense, as well as the people on the street.

How is it that the head of the most powerful bank in the world can be a committed socialist and we still have so much inequality? Inquiring minds want to know!

Watch the American hipster pervs rail again against "puritanical" america. Rape's OK, as long as a European's doing it.

David Cameron is a Jew now? (In response to Tommy).

Cameron is 1/16th Jewish. 6.25% Jew. The average African American is 19-21% Caucasian. So Michelle Obama is 3 times as white as Cameron is Jewish.

You know who else is 1/16th Jewish? Probably 90% of England.

Anti-semites are so desperate and pathetic in their attempt to invent grand Jewish conspiracies.

Under your 1/16th rule, 99% of blacks in America are actually white.

Even Sarkozy is what, 25% Jewish? About as Jewish as the average black in America is white.

At least be consistent with this stuff.

But yes, Strauss Kahn is authentically Jewish. Congratulations.

Has there ever been a blog with such a discrepancy between the intelligence of the blogger and his audience?

Doubt it.

I say this because of how so many here can think of nothing insightful in world affairs beyond how many Jews were involved and to what extent.

Steve on the other hand is brilliant. I suspect he is not taken seriously in small part due to his base.

"Please notice that I don't have to apologize for any stupid posting I made."

Well not on this topic, anyway.

"I am not qualified to comment on this murky affair. So I keep quiet."

And staying quiet took you only 150 words:

Steve,
If Drudge's report is correct, Sarko is even more dastardly than you think...
Carla's pregnant! And what timing for it to come out! Hmmm....

OJ Simpson was innocent.

The incident is a perfect metaphor for modern america. A member of the foreign overclass raping a member of the foreign underclass in a expensive hotel paid for with American money.

C'mon, be honest, your dander isn't up because of so many.

One would be enough to get your dander up.

Yeah, that's it. He'd be having lunch with the Davos crowd in no time if he'd just turn off the comments.

Free speech is like kryptonite to you. And libtards. That's why y'all avoid it like the plague.

There's no accounting for taste, as those who remember Clinton's conquests can attest.

Anyway, if you were setting DSK up, what better choice than an African woman who happens to be from one of France's former colonies? She's the perfect victim - black, female and colonially oppressed by the perp's own country!

He'd be having lunch with the Davos crowd in no time if he'd just turn off the comments.

I doubt Steve would be spending much time at Davos, with or without the comments. However, I've been reading Steve for many years, and there has definitely been an increase in Jew-baiting and an obsession with Jews over time. There are plenty of reasonable posts on topics Steve himself raises, such as Jewish influence in politics and the media or HBD-related matters.

But there are way too many that are just pure anti-Semitism, written by people who obviously hate Jews just because they are Jews.

There is a different between clear-eyed honesty, which Steve practices despite the fact that he could be much more famous and influential if he went along with fashionable opinions, and outright bigotry. The former is admirable, even if I don't always agree with his conclusions. The latter is ugly and wrong.

I have no idea how Steve could fix this problem, even if he wanted to, but it does detract from the quality of the iSteve experience that so many - not all but many - of his fans are raving bigots who air their nasty opinions without respose from Steve.

Cameron is a Jew? Who knew. The British pol with the best name though has to be Ed Balls.

Yes, because the world is just crying out for another David Brooks.

"David Cameron is a Jew now? (In response to Tommy)"

Yes, Tommy's comment was stupid. He is apparently annoyed that there are a few people with partial Jewish ancestry high up in European politics.

"You know who else is 1/16th Jewish? Probably 90% of England."

This is a good point. I lived for many years in various European countries and noticed that there are a lot of somewhat Jewish-looking people over there who claim no Jewish ancestry, and a lot of gentile-looking folks who are aware of a Jewish great-grandfather or something like that.

The accusation of rape sounds fishy. Strauss-Kahn supposedly "forced" the maid to perform oral sex on him. How is this even possible? It's doubtful the guy was using lethal violence on her. More likely, he somehow manipulated her into giving him a b.j. - possibly offering her a big wad of cash - and she regretted it afterward.

This guy DSK has a habit of doing this. With often, married women. About six or seven women have now come forward. It was only a matter of time that this guy would self-destruct in a place where his pull did not matter much (NYC vs. Paris).

Powerful guys tend to get off on screwing other men's wives, its apparently a power trip: Tony Villaraigosa and his best friend's wife. Gavin Newsome and his Campaign manager's wife. John Ensign and his Chief of Staff's wife. Schwarzenneger and his stewardess (who was married). Clinton and allegedly many married ladies. DSK and many married ladies.

They probably also figure, the women are vulnerable -- they can retaliate against the husband (ala King David) and they have reason to keep quiet. Plus of course most women are often entranced by power and revolted by the beta maleness of their husbands.

laurence_gamm said...

Strauss-Kahn, Moshe Katsav, Polanski, Jeffrey Epstein. Four prominent people who have been accused of using their position to rape women (and sometimes children)...

Is there any connection between these people?

I certainly can't think of anything which they might have in common, and I am glad that moral giants like Alan Dershowitz and BHL are defending these maligned individuals.

Jack Aubrey said...

If David Cameron's Wikipedia genealogy is to be believed, then he is 1/8th Jewish: a great-great grandfather and his wife were both Jewish, therefore their child, Cameron's great-grandfather, was 100% Jewish, and contributed 12.5% of Cameron's DNA.

Strauss-Kahn's Jewishness is irrelevant. What isn't irrelevant is that he is now being held without bail, due to our longstanding feud with the French over extradition (see: Ira Einhorn, Roman Polanski, etc.). Perhaps the French establishment now gets the message that if they aren't going to extradite accused French citizens to America for trial that they'll have to tough it out in jail until their trial is good and done - even if the accused is a potential president.

Svigor said...

Strauss-Kahn's Jewishness is irrelevant.

Is his being a socialist globalist banker irrelevant too? And are these things not connected?

P.S., I according to a quote I read from the Jewish press, S-K is half Ashkenazi and half Sephardic, not just Sephardic; I wonder if he showed up in the "Jewish intermarriage" statistics!

Married guys. A married woman is far less likely to expect follow-up or try to sabotage your marriage.
