Mélenchon Proclaims the "Resistance"

I didn't like it when US Democrats started using that expression & I don't like it from JLM: this isn't the occupation and it isn't as though they are risking their lives fighting a guerrilla war.

Unbearable self importance. Preposterous analogies and rethorics.
The marquis Melenchon des Insoumis reminds me of La Fontaine.
The Frog Who Would Be as Big as an Ox
A Frog had an Ox in her view;
His bulk, to her, appeared ideal.
She, not even as large, all in all, as an egg hitherto,
Envious, stretched, swelled, strained, in her zeal
To match the beast in overall size,
Saying, "Sister, lend me your eyes.
Is this enough? Am I not yet there, in every feature?"
"Nope." "Then now?" "No way." "There now, as good as first?"
"You’re not anywhere near." The diminutive creature
Inflated still more, till she burst.

The world is full of folk who are as far from being sages.
Every city gent would build chateaux like Louis Quatorze;
Every petty prince names ambassadors,
Every marquis wants to have pages.

Melenchon wants a revolution and 15 years after Buenos Aires calls the good people to bring and hammer casseroles to overthrow the government.

"Resistance" in his mouth really hurts !
