Remember when we learned from WikiLeaks that the then US Ambassador to France, Craig Stapleton, was sending cables to Washington lamenting the failure of the French to integrate racial minorities?
It was only two years later we learn from WikilLeaks that the American government had set up the Minority Engagement Strategy in its French Embassy to ensure the government and the people of France finally implement their "egalitarian ideals" once and for all:
Classified By: Ambassador Charles H. Rivkin, Reasons 1.4(b),(d).¶1. (C/NF)But it is another part of the WikiLeaks, describing the American governments official tactic in France to finally ensure 'liberty, equality, fraternity' is adhered to, that we see - in action - the Battle Hymn of the Republic of Equality being played loudly and proudly:
SUMMARY: In keeping with France’s unique history and circumstances, Embassy Paris has created a Minority Engagement Strategy that encompasses, among other groups, the French Muslim population and responds to the goals outlined in reftel A. Our aim is to engage the French population at all levels in order to amplify France’s efforts to realize its own egalitarian ideals, thereby advancing U.S. national interests. While France is justifiably proud of its leading role in conceiving democratic ideals and championing human rights and the rule of law, French institutions have not proven themselves flexible enough to adjust to an increasingly heterodox demography. We believe that if France, over the long run, does not successfully increase opportunity and provide genuine political representation for its minority populations, France could become a weaker, more divided country, perhaps more crisis-prone and inward-looking, and consequently a less capable ally. To support French efforts to provide equal opportunity for minority populations, we will engage in positive discourse; set a strong example; implement an aggressive youth outreach strategy; encourage moderate voices; propagate best practices; and deepen our understanding of the underlying causes of inequality in France. We will also integrate the efforts of various Embassy sections, target influential leaders among our primary audiences, and evaluate both tangible and intangible indicators of the success of our strategy. END SUMMARY.
TACTIC 2: SET A STRONG EXAMPLE------------------------------¶6. (C/NF) Second, we will employ the tool of example. We will continue and expand our efforts to bring minority leaders from the U.S. to France, working with these American leaders to convey an honest sense of their experience to French minority and non-minority leaders alike. When we send French leaders to America, we will include, as often as possible, a component of their trip that focuses on equal opportunity. In the Embassy, we will continue to invite abroad spectrum of French society to our events, and avoid, as appropriate, hosting white-only events, or minority-only events. We will be inclusive, working in this way to breakdown barriers, facilitate communication, and expand networks.By bringing together groups who would not otherwise interact together, the Embassy will continue to use its cachet to create networking opportunities that cut through traditional cultural and social barriers in France.
"Cut through traditional cultural and social barriers in France."
The official policy of the American government for all European nations (not just France), especially the former American nation.
If the tactics of the Minority Engagement Strategy in France fail, there's always the possibility an endless sortie of Predator Drones to hammer home the point of "Liberty, Fraternity, and Equality" will be deployed instead.
