Dominique Strauss-Kahn : Lust isn’t a Crime but Socialism might be One, an “Aggravated” One.
March 31, 2012
From accomplished chess player, to Minister of Finance, to Managing Director and Chairman of the Executive Board of the International Monetary Fund, to Socialist Party politician, to alleged sexual predator, to vice ring Pimp.
Indeed, Strauss-Kahn has to respond, once again, to accusations, sexual in nature. This time, related to his involvement in hiring prostitutes and taking part in sex parties in Paris and Washington D.C.
In May 2011, Nafissatou Diallo, a hotel maid, accused DSK of sexually assaulting her. His semen was found on the maid’s shirt. DSK admitted to inappropriate sexual behavior with Diallo but insisted that violence was never involved. He pleaded not guilty. The following month, Diallo’s credibility was put in question as her statements diverged. Therefore, his culpability could no longer be established beyond reasonable doubt.
He then returned to France as a hero who survived the intrusive American Media, which painted him as a sexual predator, and overcame the flawed American Justice System. Another accomplishment to be proud of, another exploit that his political campaign could use as these sorts of situation would play for one and not against one in France. Regardless of the fact that prostitution is legal in France, the French not only are tolerant but also embrace sexual prowesses, leader or not. François Mitterrand is still one of France’s most beloved president, despite the many scandals.
DSK would have officially ran against Nicolas Sarkozy. The preliminary polls indicated an undisputed advantage for DSK. His downfall would mean and did lead to Sarkozy’s survival and presidential win.
However, until this day, more than half of the French population and almost three-quarter of their socialists believe that he was the victim of a plot. But yet again, they now almost all despise Sarkozy.
As the French elections are approaching, another socialist is ready to face Sarkozy: François Hollande. Leftists tend to be unpopular to say the least, despite the poor state of Europe’s economical state. But on the other hand, it is in times like these that the virtues of capitalism are promoted and emphasized in order to keep everyone’s focus unrattled.
I am not too familiar with François Hollande’s nature; but, if you are amongst the French “conspiracy theorists”, if Hollande was morally reproachable in any way, it would have been already publicized. Unless, his time in the spotlight has not come yet.
Angela Merkel’s patronage will be yet again be introduce via the French-German border. How dare anyone remotely think of severing Merkozy !?!
Thus, a few days ago, DSK, a left-leaning socialist, was charged with aggravated pimping. He denies the charges and affirms that he was unaware that these women were prostitutes and did not pay them, especially not with corporate funds. Nevertheless, he proudly flaunted his “healthy” sexual appetite.
If found guilty, he could face up to 20 years in prison and order to pay €3 million in fines.
In addition, Strauss-Kahn’s civil case filed by Diallo will proceed in New York.
It is difficult to think thatwas once France’s would-be President. Or is it?
In 2011, before his first arrest in the United States, Dominique Strauss-Kahn stated that the three biggest hurdles in his campaign to become president of France are money, women and being a Jewish.
No matter the outcome of his trials, one thing is clear, he is guilty of bluntness. Some might even add that he is guilty of leaning to far to the left. Nevertheless, his statement could be, and in my opinion is, applicable to the better part of our World Leaders.
The Canadians are usually discrete and respectful.
The Americans always rush to volunteer as moral authority.
The French and Italians are _______________ .
