The French saved Western Civilization

As shocking as that is to some, it’s true. The French have gotten a bad rap after doing their best “Soldier of Love” impersonation and laying down their arms when faced with the German Blitzkrieg.
Western Civ owes the French a debt of gratitude. It was they, under the leadership of Charles Martel, who stopped the Muslim horde at the Battle of Tours in 732. The Muslims had conquered what is now Spain and Portugal and were poised to take over the rest of Europe until the Frenchies stopped them.
So I raise my Sunkist to you France, for displaying the gallantry which preserved our civilization. Now quit trying to make up for it by giving in to the same people who tried to take you over back in 732.
