oh goodness, that is so horrible to see. Notice the construction scaffolding up around the steeple. There is a construction company that may have made a catastrophic mistake.

What in the world....do the French not know how to put out a simple fire? They have a little bitty hose. They need to hurry!

During Holy Week no less. Je suis tres triste!

It’s sad to see such a great piece of history and architecture waste. From what I gathered workers were removing Bronze Statues when the fire started. Nothing is left under the spire. So much care and caution has to be taken when working around old structures. Anything can go wrong, such as the case here.

They’re waiting for the British and Americans to come put it out for them.

Muslim terror attack, it will be suppressed because the French have reached the magic number of angry Muslims that they are honestly afraid of them.

I wondered why several hours went by before the assholes came out. But they didn't let me down. Better late than never to show your American spirit.

I was waiting for this to turn stupid and, sure enough, it did....by old guys re-re-re-fighting WWII. Sign out and go home..it's almost 5. Should be home by 8.

My relatives fought and died on French soil to save their asses from the Nazis. Kiss my ass if you don’t like my attitude towards them.

Problem was not the French people or troops. They fought pretty damn bravely. Go read up on Dien Bien Phu and how much hell they gave the Viet Minh. The problem has been its leadership. It's the leadership that has been spineless and was more than happy to let the troops soldier on and suffer.

5:10 You Canadians should not have such a selfish attitude towards the French. We in America remember them as an ally and the second biggest factor in our American revolution. Lighten up!

I trust that the rebuilding has already began. Collections will be joyfully taken up to be a part of the rebuilding around the world, that's what the faithful do.

President Trump had a great idea. Dump water on the church by a airplane or helicopter. The liberals said it would collapse the structure, however, the water could be regulated to the volume of a summer rain. The frogs I mean the French have no leadership to even attempt this.

The French Government has established new internal threat levels. Unlike the U.S., the French only have four such levels. They are, from low to high:


RUN
HIDE
SURRENDER
COLLABORATE

I have a French WW II Infantry rifle for sale. Mint condition! Never fired and only dropped once.

JB said...

@3:59

You just love stuff like this to get that Catholic hate flowing, don't ya? Would you have the same reaction if a Southern Baptist Megachurch burnt? You know, it would be divine retribution if that happened seeing as they had themselves a nice little sex-abuse scandal along the same lines recently.

@ Everyone talking down about the French...

Have you forgotten who stood with us during the Revolution? Yes, I know the French are easy targets sometimes, much like Catholics are for 3:59 above.

KF is right, the French fought bravely. If he were still alive Marcel Bigeard would lay you down if you called him a "Cheese Eating Surrender Monkey." Read up on him if you can manage get past your French=Effete white handkerchief waving girly-men stereotype you have going.

And on that old joke about a Frenchman's gun being "Never fired, dropped once" I say this: "https://i.imgur.com/pDvsXhU.png"

Kingfish said...

The French took the brunt of the German assault and stopped them cold, dumbass. Read about Verdun some time. Guess no one remembered there was a French resistance during WW2 as well. Quit a few "frogs" as you put it died fighting the Nazis. They also showed what they thought of collaborators when France was liberated.

Kingfish said...

Oh, and the French wiped our asses and taught us how to fight when we arrived over in Europe during the Great War. Our army was small, weak, and unable to fight for quite some time after we entered the war.

Churches all over France have been burned or destroyed nearly weekly for the past 2 years or so. Just last week alone 2 people with ties to ISIS were arrested for trying to set fire to Notre dame. Muslims doing what they so!!!

@9:31, thanks for spreading the work of a racist. I googled your source and the very first result shows:

“Pamela Geller is an American political activist and commentator. She is known for her anti-Islamic writings, opposition to the proposed construction of an Islamic community center near the former site of the World Trade Center, and sponsorship of the "Draw the Prophet" cartoon contest in Garland, Texas. “

@2:12, so you are willing to start a holy war based on a deleted tweet? This deleted tweet is a 3rd party account of an unnamed friend in an unnamed job who heard from other unnamed “staff” that it was intentionally set by someone. Seems like quite the leap of faith you are taking, does it not?

@1:20 Please look up the definition of "racist" so that you can use it properly in the future.

KF, your rewriting of the French and the resistance during WWII reads like the book "Soldiers in the Night" - written about the French underground. Yes, there were many French who did risk their lives in WWII - after their leaders abdicated and ran for cover. (And yes, they were French too.) The number of French citizens that died in the war - a war that was about saving their country, along with the Brits - is miniscule when compared to the costs in lives (and dollars) that came from the other major allies.

But once they were free, they wanted it all for themselves -- demanding a seat at the table to divide up the spoils and punish the enemies; twenty years of resistance against the US and its attempts to protect the allies interests.

To try to find a battle where they were important is tough, but there is no problem in finding dozens of battles where dealing with them and their egos cost Americans their advantage, and their lives.

Anonymous said...

And KF, tell that about the French taking the brunt of the German assault to the Czechs, and the Polish, and the Belgiums, and the Danes- all the while that the French, with Chamberlin and Attle were dicking around with their "peace efforts"

@4:16, sorry to trigger you like that, but please learn to read time correctly before being offended when a racist is called a racist.

Kingfish said...

Why don't you read some history and learn the difference between WW1 and WW2.

Kingfish said...

I said the leadership was often the problem. Look at Dien Bien Phu. FFL was brave and tough as hell. Leadership F'ed them over with horrible decisions. Officers had enough and staged their own coup at the base. Slaughtered the Viet Minh until they had nothing to fight with anymore. Fighting from the bottom of a valley while your enemy has loads of artillery covered by triple canopy jungle tends to cause that problem. The leadership screwed them over again in Algeria. Finally had enough and tried their own aborted coup. Day of the Jackal wasn't exactly thought up out of thin air, you know.

You left out the part where we actually fought the French in North Africa and the British fought them before we entered the war. We needed Degaulle so the French troops wouldn't obey orders and fight against us.

However, WW1, I don't think anyone can call them cowards.

How many readers here would be surprised to learn that France is still not an operational member of NATO? They have political participation only, i.e. no skin in the game.

The U.S. and other NATO member nations are doing the heavy lifting for the cheese eating white flag raising frogs.

@10:35 AM, @7:30 here...you are correct. The frogs joined NATO in 2009. Another senior moment on my part. My bad. Carry on.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
