LOL: DeSantis slams French as giving up quickly

“His ideology is: try to piece together some of the lost glory of what they had,” DeSantis said of Putin.

He was quick to add that “the Soviet Union is not a glorious entity,” lest his position be misunderstood, and stressed that Putin’s view was “that the dissolution of the Soviet Union is a bad thing.”

In any case, DeSantis’ Florida joke, while funny, isn’t necessarily accurate. The “surrender monkey” trope applied to France stems almost entirely from that nation’s quick surrender in World War II in the face of Hitler’s onslaught.

While this war went poorly for the French and they didn’t show much fighting spirit, the French have an otherwise excellent military record.

From Vercingetorix’s resistance to Caesar’s conquest of Gaul to Petain’s valiant defense of Verdun, Napoleon’s “thunderclap” victory at Austerlitz (where the French defeated Russian forces) to William the Conqueror’s conquest of England, the French were considered brave for many centuries known fighter.

The Franks, as they were known during the Crusades, instilled fear in the Saracens, and the massive columns of Emperor Napoleon’s army defeated many enemies.

Furthermore, France’s modern military is anything but a hoax, even if many think it is one based on its performance in WWII. It won the long and bloody Algerian War and is now one of the stronger members of the NATO alliance. As a daily caller reports:

France’s military conducts a nuclear exercise every three months according to to a Forbes report. The drills last about four hours, which is equivalent to flying time from French military bases to western Russia and back, the article said. The nation also deploys naval submarines containing 16 M51 ICBMs. Overall, according to Forbes reports, France had an estimated nuclear arsenal of around 300 warheads as of 2020.

While the joke was funny, DeSantis is wrong on this one; The French probably have the courage and fighting spirit to fight like lions.
