Leftist moral relativism reaches its apex, or maybe it’s nadir, in France

The stupidity is overwhelming and all-encompassing.  Two quotations keep springing my my mind.  Tacitus, of course (“They make a desert and call it peace”) and the Rev. Sydney Smith (1771-1845):

In the midst of this sublime and terrible storm [at Sidmouth, England], Dame Partington, who lived upon the beach, was seen at the door of her house with mop and pattens, trundling her mop, squeezing out the sea-water, and vigorously pushing away the Atlantic Ocean. The Atlantic was roused; Mrs. Partington’s spirit was up. But I need not tell you that the contest was unequal; the Atlantic Ocean beat Mrs. Partington.

Sometimes it seems that the moral morons are the Atlantic, while we are poor, pathetic Mrs. Partingtons, armed with nothing more than a few mops.  We need a Moses for some serious power over the bad Leftist waters.
