Liberals continually claim that they want a tolerant and equal society, and yet attack the very foundations of our culture which allows us the freedoms that others do not have. Leftists are constantly attacking Christianity in any and all forms, claiming that it’s offensive to others, but this time they got a taste of their own medicine.
Robert Menard, mayor of the city of Beziers in southern France, has a history of offending liberals with his Judeo-Christian values, but this time, according to liberals themselves, he’s crossed the line. Of all the hateful, vile things he could’ve done…he had the nerve to put a nativity scene at the Beziers City Hall, in honor of Christmas.
Had he decided to put some sort of tribute to Islam up, I doubt that leftists would be complaining—but the fact that he had the audacity and arrogance to promote Christianity, of all things, really set leftists off. This just goes to show you how hypocritical these scumbags all are.
They immediately sprung into action and attacked Mayor Menard for his “intolerant” and “hateful” displays of patriarchy, but no matter. This french mayor was no stranger to controversy and had a quick ace up his sleeve, much to the chagrin of his enemies.

In just seven words, posted on Twitter, he completely obliterated the left wingers responsible for attacking his nativity scene. Rather than getting defensive or bowing down to political correctness as so many other politicians would have, he simply replied: “We will never yield on our culture!”
Mad World News reports:
In a genius move, Ménard used the same tactic that liberals often invoke, charging that their attack on the Christmas display is a bigoted assault on French culture and the majority’s values. The wise mayor then took to Twitter to express his outrage over the incessant leftist incursion against the Christian majority, who have a rich and long heritage of celebrating their culture and values through displays like the Nativity.
“They will try to ban our #crèche (Nativity) of 2017, 2018 and up to 2030. We will never yield on our culture!” he posted on Twitter.
“I am respectful of secularism, but an open, tolerant secularism that does not consist in chasing down what we are and denying our history,” he added to his previous sentiment in a column for his former magazine Boulevard Voltaire.
Ménard has not only defied the tiny minority of people who want the Nativity gone but a 2016 court decision in which the French administrative court of appeals of Marseille ruled that the scene has no place in a city hall. Despite this, Ménard has risked legal action to once again erect the display depicting the birth of Christ. However, Ménard’s carefully worded response may very well be the key to getting around the ruling.
By cleverly declaring the Nativity scene a work of “culture,” Ménard has likely invoked a loophole in the previous court ruling. According to the judgment, displays in government and public facilities are allowed if “special circumstances show that the installation is of a cultural, artistic, or festive nature,” Breitbart reports.
This man is exactly what Europe needs in her cries for help. For too long have far left politicians such as Angela Merkel destroyed European culture by importing millions of unvetted, uneducated, and disproportionately violent “refugees.” It’s time for Europe to defend its own culture, and it starts with Christianity.
