Islamaphobic redditor lies about traveling to Paris.
As soon as i saw that thread, it was obvious there were a lot of people with agendas making up stories.
I saw this earlier and it definitely raised eye brows at the “no one spoke French or English” part. One of the top comments said to not go to Paris because its over rated and to visit the other cities.
I knew that post was BS, Obviously by someone who never left the OC Bubble
>They do not speak French or EnglishWhy should they even speak English
I saw this post and thought it was strange, I've been to paris and it wasn't all that bad
Isn't he just repeating that story that Trump used to tell? About a friend who kept telling him that "Paris isn't the same anymore"?Also 10k upvotes... Reddit really is a magical place.
Aw man I posted on that thread too. Now I feel dumb
I went to Paris in 2010 and it was filthy with many homeless people stumbling around, but they seemed to be French homeless people. The nicest person we met there was a black African cab driver. Super nice guy, family man, spoke a little English, tried to refuse a tip but it was our last day on Euros and I wanted to get rid of all our Euro coins.
This is the same shit as what Tomi Lahren or Lauren Southern said while taking a video of her walking around one of more diverse parts of ParisForeigners come to Paris expecting a city full of stereotypical French parisians. Well, welcome to the center of what used to be a world empire and also what happens to be one of the four world cities. Sorry if we can't give you an image that fits Emily in Paris.Yes I'm Parisian. Fuck these foreigners who want to tell us what our city should look like.
Sure but like who even speaks French , certainly not the French.
Not denying that they’re an islamophobe, but nothing in their post indicates that they are.
They all do this. Spouting off about places they've never been because they think an actual person whose been there isn't in the vicinity.This move worked well until social media enters the fray.
Even if the post wasn’t bs, imagine going to Paris and bitching they didn’t speak English.
Paris is a shit hole but you can't blame anyone but the french lol
This isn’t entirely wrong, many of the non tourist spots in Paris (and France as a whole) are wrecks and nothing like you’d see in movies or hear about. I went there for a vacation and spent a solid chunk of time helping clean streets and trash up from my grandmothers hometown.
1. Racist Discord server has one member make a seemingly innocuous post, with a builtin narrative or dogwhistle.2. The other members of this Discord server brigade that post in order to push the racist/xenophobic agenda they originally intended.Astroturfing 101.
Who was in paris?
I mean the post isn’t all wrong. I went to Paris in the summer of 2012 and it was a fucking shithole. Trash everywhere along the streets and sidewalks, African migrants trying to pickpocket or harass you into buying stupid Eiffel Tower souvenirs. They’d follow you for way longer than normal and they’d try and block your path.The only parts that weren’t littered to death were the art museums and most of the restaurants. The food was fucking amazing though and the French people there were extremely pleasant and fun to be around. I’ll never forget a server we had one night by the name of Philippe who gave me my first ever cognac on the house after he stayed at our table and talked with us for a bit. The stereotypes about French people being rude or dismissive of Americans was the complete opposite. I know it’s a tourist area so they have to be at least somewhat pleasant but this guy went well above and beyond.
He's obviously bullshitting about having been and most of the unsavoury types he describes would definitely speak French, but other than that he's kind of right - Paris is a shockingly rough and dirty city by European standards.
I don't know if they're an Islamophobe or who this is, but I don't see evidence that they in fact couldn't have been to Paris. Because they are right, Paris _is_ pretty dirty...
I read this post this morning... It totally read like racist bs
Is there a second image where they said something islamophobic? I seemed to have missed it.
This is pretty much verbatim to a Trump speech except he always quotes “A friend, a really good friend, we’re quite close.” As saying these exact words.
First time i see someone lying and still be right a the same time
Even if he lies about going there, it still is a shithole, especially compared to what people expect. And I'm not talking about the immigration.
Buuuuut they're not wrong. Paris isn't a nice place to be. At least it wasn't when I was there 2016. Doubt it's gotten better.
He's not wrong though. Paris isn't what it was and has lost its charm.
According to my girlfriend that lived in France for 15 years. Paris is a bit of a shit whole. (At least in none tourist spots). They refer to the people there as Parisians or something. The teaching of English in France is the most basic of basics so their English isn’t the best. Just like English, there are different accents in France + slag
Even if this actually happened. Capital cities, or bigger cities, are where foreign immigrants tend to move to, they all go cosmopolitan. Doesn't matter what language they speak, there are enough 'locals' around to do any holiday stuff you'd want without needing to speak to foreigners like yourself.
I mean I know nobody actually believes the narrative anyway but I spent a week in Paris in January 2020 and it was lovely. I walked everywhere and it was beautiful. Some of the heavy tourist hotspots like the Tower had peddlers of tat but that's the same in any tourist city.Would go back.
You can travel to/from France tho, all you need is a negative covid test
I mean, paris isn't all that glamorous.
They do have A serious rat problem though I saw more rats in a day my first time in Paris than I normally do in a year.
I mean I agree with the post anyway. When my family went to Paris we were kinda disappointed with how gross the streets were
Regardless of what language anybody speaks, Paris is a shithole.
what about it is Islamophobic?
Just curious, how is that islamaphobic
