Yes, they’ve got to keep those pesky peasants from enjoying the shoreline. Because “safety”…for elites.
But border walls for us? Apparently, not so much.
Note from Tammy:
Another case of liberals arguing against policy that will keep our families safe, while taking the opposite reaction for their own safety.
Barack Obama wanted open borders, and is against a border wall as well. And yet, one of the first things the Obamas did when they bought their DC home after the his presidency was over, was to build a wall!
I don’t bedrudge him that one little bit. The point is, liberals, including the Obamas and the Clintons, and everyone else, know wall work; they provide security. And much like locks on our doors– while it won’t guarantee 100% success at keeping us safe, it’s at least a good faith effort. After all, we sleep better at night knowing the doors are locked, don’t we?
Saint-Briac-sur-Mer on the Brittany coast in France is a private playground for the European elite.
It’s also the home of Les Essarts, the ancestral home of former Democratic presidential candidate and former Obama Secretary of State John Kerry. It has been in his family since 1923 and was the place he regularly vacationed as a child.
But Saint-Briac is now a legal battleground between the French state and the uber-rich villa owners, including Kerry’s family, who for decades have defied a French law that allows for a small right-of-way on the city’s beach for hikers and visitors.
Now it seems that the illegal efforts by the villa owners to keep the hoi polloi out of Saint-Briac is nearing an end….
Under French law the country’s coastlines must be accessible to all, similarly to Britain’s “right to roam” rules.
But for decades Saint-Briac leaders have steadfastly refused to obey via a series of legal moves, in particular Senghor’s predecessor Brice Lalonde — Kerry’s first cousin….
A law that passed in December 1976 ensures that the public has a three-meter right-of-way along France’s coastline. In 1982 an order was published demanding that Saint-Briac follow the law, which launched the current legal battle.
During the 2004 presidential election, Kerry’s relatives kept quiet the Democratic Party candidate’s ties to the village….
“No walls pour vous, mais pour moi, oui!
Kerry is not being consistent with James Taylor singing, You’ve Got a Friend.
Btw, wikipedia says that this area was once home to both Russian and Prussian royalty. So, Versailles by the Sea.
