This is exactly the kind of mean-minded bigotry I refuse to join in.
And Peter--I'm quite aware of your somewhat odd view that it is pompous
to say anything as an absolute unless it is your absolutism in favor of the
self-consciously casual, jokey "hey! I'm just a normal guy guy" but I
absolutely say (whatever).
But I absolutely reject this as something I even would or could say.
And Kate, the cheese is not really relevant.

I believe that Americans eat nearly as much cheese as the French. And
the reason why the French actively opposed us in Iraq had nothing to do
with their believing in peace. It had everything to do with their oil needs
and their ties and support of a terrible, repressive regime.
