the ultimate argument

In a tribune published on February 4 in Le Monde [under the vote-fishing argument that the National Front is not a threat for democracy], the former minister [and convicted member of fascist groups in the 1960’s] Gérard Longuet wrote this unforgettable sentence about the former and current heads of the National Front:

“Sa fille, elle, a compris, et d’ailleurs pourquoi serait-elle son père, alors que deux ou trois générations les séparent.”

[Translation:  His daughter has for her part well understood and in any case why should she be her father when there are two or three generations between them.]
