Another reason to elect John Kerry

French President Jacques Chirac warned Thursday of a "catastrophe" for global diversity if the United States' cultural hegemony goes unchallenged. iht.com


Surely reversing US cultural hegemony is reason enough for foreign leaders to want Kerry to win the White House in November and it should be enough for you as well!

[Kerry] insisted he had talked to and met with foreign leaders who were rooting for him. He said during the town hall he talked to "several" in the past week and that all the conversations were not face-to-face.

He said the leaders were "at all different levels" of government and said their support was fueled by dissatisfaction with U.S. unilateralism and "arrogance" in foreign policy. news.myway.com


Obviously Kerry was right. America is less respected today because of our cultural arrogance. For the sake of global diversity, not to mention the impending, "real ecological catastrophe" brought on by the supremacy of the english language around the world (uh?), America should disarm and take a humbler, more sensitive role in the war on terror by electing John Kerry (he was in Vietnam you know).

Once dazzled by the intense power of Kerry's diplomacy France will decide that Iraq should be "choked" by French values dispensed by French troops-- so that the US doesn't have to pay 90% of the cost of the war.

The French president warned that the world's different cultures could be "choked" by U.S. values.

This, he said, would lead to a "general world subculture" based around the English language. This, he maintained, would be "a real ecological catastrophe."

Citing Hollywood's overwhelming leadership in the movie industry as an example, Chirac asserted that only with government assistance could countries maintain their cultural heritage.


Now we know the real reason Bush failed the global test. If only Hollywood wouldn't have pursued its 'imperialist global war' against the world's cultural diversity and its reckless profit-driven goal of cultural hegemony we could have had an un-fraudulent coalition in Iraq. Elect John Kerry, he supported the war when it was popular and has the sense to oppose it when it is not.
