Nude statues in Rome might have been covered so as to not offend the visiting Hassan Rouhani, but when the Iranian president went to France, President Francois Hollande refused to cover up a menu item:

Sometimes you just have to draw the line!

  • rambler

    GOOD! Now send him back to iran.

  • rodlang

    Muslim world to the western world…you must accept our culture but we don’t have to accept your culture.

    Props to Hollande.

    • Doc Farmer✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

      To be fair, Rouhani was pissed that it was such an inferior vintage…

      • DeplorableMessMan ✔ JesseMessy

        Rouhani’s pizzed because he was literally blood-thirsty and he thought “the blood of Thracian grapes” (hat/tip to Vincent Price as Baka in #TheTenCommandments) meant actual “blood”-blood.

      • Penny✓ItsSoFluffy! #GoBolts!

        It wasn’t the vintage, it was Manischewitz.

    Would the French go to Iran and demand that the women attending lunch not wear a headscarf because it goes against their secular values?

    • Paul

      Women wouldn’t be allowed to attend lunch.

      • Deborah Hallsted

        Just as the captive female U.S. Sailor wasn’t allowed to do. Good call.

        • Paul

          My wife and I lived eleven years in Morocco, where we saw how women were treated. We could write a book on our observations, but no need, it’s all in the Coran, the Sunna and the Hadith, written by Momo himself.

          • Deborah Hallsted

            Good to hear from 1st hand, not just RTing an article. And I had wondered about Morocco.

  • Lance H

    Rouhani wouldn’t have anything to worry about at a state lunch at the White House. The only drink offered with each meal is kool-aid.

    • Don Reed

        Just screw with the French women.

  • Martin Cohn

    Even someone on the Left can do the right thing.

  • tjp77

    Yeah, compare that with Kerry’s constant ass kissing, and Italy’s concealing of renaissance masterpieces because they contain nudity.

    • grais

      Oh, c’mon. Italy couldn’t very well allow Rouhani and his entourage to sexually assault their statues.

      • David

        Were images of goats also covered up?

        • Deborah Hallsted

          Only the female ones.

  • Jenn Oates

    You know, I don’t like wine, but it’s often served at meals I share with friends and family. You know what I say when it’s offered?

    “No thank you.”

    Works every time.

    • CoastalMaineBird

      You think that’s better than “off with your head, you filthy infidel swine!” ?

      • Doc Farmer✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵈᵉᵖˡᵒʳᵃᵇˡᵉ

        Well, it’s certainly shorter. And less of a burden on the laundry as well…

        • Jenn Oates


    • Penny✓ItsSoFluffy! #GoBolts!

      I’ll take yours then, if that’s OK with you. 🙂

  • NoFanofLibs

    Would Rouhani have stayed if the wine was boxed?

    • Gregor Eisenstein

      He did all right with boxed statues, so I’d say yes!

  • IronButterfly

    Good thing Kerry was not making a decision on this the whole menu would have been Muuuslim friendly.

    • Suzyqpie

      If the meal was being served at La Casa Blanca, you can bet Obama & Kerry, et al, would have complied.

      • MarciaTheMurkyMuse? Variegated

  • JosephBloughs ✓Viagrafied

    If he only served it together with carnitas (pork) fried in a big copper pot, I might even vote for the socialist.

  • Arkuy The Great

    Say what you will about France and its politics you cannot beat their cuisine! Of course, there is a limit to how far that gets you…

  • Peggy Bundy

    i would have bathed in red wine, wore a bacon dress and closed the borders. But that’s just me.

    • Knight64

      And if I were French, I would vote for you!

  • globalcrap

    Serve wine and pork with topless waitresses , that will keep these muslim terrorist away.

He mailed them the “manuscript”… the S&S mail room heard it ticking… it may not be a best seller but it sure made Them Peeps at S&S runaway real fast out the door onto Sixth Ave.

        • Suzyqpie

          That kiddo received acclaim for that provocative mess is asininity. The melanin tabulators were apoplectic, hey it’s a Muslim who hasn’t blown anyone to smithereens (yet) give the Mulsim kiddo a prize!!!! (Clapclapclapclap). So emetic.

      Not. At. All.

    Rouhani must have been taken aback: he’s so used to the West grovelingly capitulating to him and his azbackward barbarian horde: especially of late.

    So,if the Leafs are losing 5-0 and score with 8 seconds left in the game,THAT’S a victory,too?

  • Karla1953

    Well I understand not wanting to do away with the wine for sure 🙂

  • Donald Shaffer

    Just a note this apparently happened a year ago and has been updated on a few different sites.

    • Karla1953

      Actually it was today……………………Tweet compliments of the French Ambassador to the US……….Iran wanted a Halal menu which meant no wine

      Gérard Araud ‏@GerardAraud 5h5 hours ago

      @OrenDorell It is not the halal which was a problem but the wine : nobody should constrain anybody to drink or not to drink.

      • mblack

        So, again, the Muslims say “You must respect our religion/culture, but we will piss on yours.”

      • Donald Shaffer

        Interesting it happened in November as well then

        • Karla1953

          That might be so, just that this is the story today not an update to an old one………………..-)

  • D H

    France – will forever draw the line at wine!

  • san rafael blue

    Hollande was about to raise a toast with a full goblet of Mogen-David wine, when Rouhani’s face went ashen… “I think I have suddenly lost my appetite” How gauche!

    Not as if they were gonna force the pissant to drink any himself

    Muslims demand Germany BAN alcohol or they’ll keep raping women. If Hollande really cared he’d call Merkel. Europeans are committing suicide & this “wine” story as some sort of “good” thing is BS. France & all of the EU are showing what cowards they are.

    • Arkuy The Great

      And the Germans answered “Mahmoud, Prost!”. (see starting about 7 minutes)

    Hollande showed some cojones. The wimpy Italians covered up all of the nude statues in Rome for that guy,

    I am getting sick and tired of the rest of the world bending over (backwards AND forwards) for these backward 8th Century barbarians. Meanwhile if you went to their country, YOU would have to submit to THEIR religion (like women in headscarves)….they want it both ways and as far as I am concerned they can go pound sand and eat oil!!

    Good! Glad that other countries are standing up to Iran and their demands!! You do not go to another country and demand they do things your way. Now it’s time America stand up to Iran and tell them to f–k off!
    There is Avery old true saying,” When in Rome do as the Romans do.” Works much better than a demand!!

  • ‘Tom Crawford

    Cover this to not offend, cover that, remove this, remove that so as not to offend…..have they ever done the same for the things we find offensive? Raping little boys and girls? Stoning gays and women? Some how I don’t think they would care one iota if anyone is offended by their behavior….so why don’t we tell them to suck it up cupcake, your visiting our nation, not yours.

  • nc ✓s & balances

    Yummy. So delicious to see the French fry the mullahs.

    President Hollande—a Socialist with a spine!
    He may end up on display in the Louvre someday.

  • lilwren

    …the French without their wine is like the Muslims without their goats — cultural triggers to put you in the mood…

  • HiltonHead_Dude

    If he doesn’t want wine, don’t drink wine. I don’t like spinach, but I don’t require that restaurants take it off menu’s before i dine there.

  • RSnyder

    That’s pretty cool.
    Mooslems are the throrniest of people; after our always in high dungeon, killen themselves in the street, barely able to speak english and unable to keep their pants up impregnating every nearby woman and ducking any responsibility for the young gansta/ghetto monkies they unleash on the rest of us blackafricans we call blacks, in America. Keepin it real. in France, and America. Good job, hollandaise sauce.

  • wharfrat

    Iran can kill innocent people and pay their terrorist to create murders around the World but they can’t drink wine?,if the truth be known the leaders of Iran are a bunch of drunks.The President of France was right not to back down.

  • Paul

    This being said, it hasn’t prevented Rohmani from purchasing 114 Airbuses, manufacturing of 200,000 Peugeots a year, after refurbishing three automobile plants, rebrubishing three train stations and building a HST between Tehran and the airport. Wouldn’t be surprised if they buy a few Rafales to boot.

  • Deborah Hallsted

    Good decision. Eating while looking at him would probably induce vomiting. Plus he has all that disgusting slobber on him from the greedy opportunists who could give a sh** about funding terrorism. I’m pretty sure the hundreds of starving tortured Christians rotting in Iranian prisons agree. We just can’t hear their voices.

    So Iran thinks that if one visits Iran, one follows Iranian protocol, and if one visits France, one follows ….Iranian protocol. This is kind of a hint as to how the Iranians see the world.
