If you have heard virtually nothing of the current situation in France, you can be forgiven, as the mainstream media is largely keeping quiet about it, and seemingly for good reason. Even I had only really heard about what is going on through news sites on Gab, not even other social media (not that I frequent those anymore). So to shed light on this for those who are unaware, allow me to give you some context.
Recently, 20 retired French generals and around 1,000 servicemembers signed an open letter warning President Emmanuel Macron of “several deadly dangers” threatening the country, including “Islamism and the hordes of the banlieue,” or the fractured suburbs around major cities which are high in both immigrant populations and crime.
They warn that, because of radical Islam and radical movements like the “anti-racism” movement, which seeks to create a “racial war”, according to the signatories (which is 100% true, given their actions and sentiments), French identity is eroding and being actively destroyed by such people. They also warn that, if Macron doesn’t do something to reverse course on this, France will be headed towards “civil war”, which will lead to deaths “in the thousands.”
“The hour is grave, France is in peril,” warned the letter, published on April 21st, which is the 60th anniversary of a failed coup d’état (don’t know if that was intentional or not). The treatment of the “gilet jaunes” or yellow vest protesters is an example, the letter says, of how the government has used the police “as proxy agents and scapegoats” for tyranny and oppression.
“It is no longer the time to procrastinate, otherwise tomorrow civil war will put an end to this growing chaos and deaths – for which you will be responsible – with numbers in the thousands,” the letter concludes.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Macron and his government didn’t take kindly to the letter’s warning, with Defense Minister Florence Parly saying “These are unacceptable actions,” adding that serving military members are required by law to remain politically neutral. “There will be consequences, naturally,” she said, adding that she has instructed the army’s chief of staff to discipline the signatories.
Despite the strong pushback against the letter by the Macron administration, a recent poll, conducted by Harris Interactive, found that 58% of respondents “support the words of the soldiers,” with an overwhelming majority, 84%, saying that violence was increasing in society, and 73% believing that the country was deteriorating. Perhaps worst of all for the French Leftists, nearly 75% believe the “anti-racism” movement is having the opposite intended effect and is making race relations even worse, not improving them.
Frankly, that last one is not all that surprising, as all it takes is someone with even a semi-functioning brain to realize that “anti-racists” are openly racist against whites in narrative and minorities in practice.
In any case, nearly 50% of respondents also think that the military should occupy problematic areas, such as the high-crime, high-immigrant population areas, “which would act on its own to restore order.”
Finally, only one in three respondents believe that the signatories ought to be punished, showing pretty clearly that the people of France strongly support the letter and what it says.
It was predicted that such terrible situations would occur for European countries back when the Syrian “refugee” crisis was happening in the mid-2010s. In reality, what that crisis was wasn’t about families and innocents escaping the destruction and possibilities of death in Syria as it was involved in a civil war, but about sending largely military-age male Islamists into European nations to spread Islam and make Europe part of the Muslim world.
Horrible terrorist acts occurred in Europe at high rates since then, including multiple knife attacks, truck attacks, axe attacks, and who could forget the worst terrorist attack in France’s history, the November 2015 attacks, which resulted in over 130 deaths and 413 injuries?
And terrorist attacks continue to happen, as the latest one occurred literally two days after the publication of that letter, where a policewoman was stabbed to death by a radical Islamic terrorist who shouted “Allahu akbar” as he carried out the attack.
France is being destroyed both by radical Islamic terrorists and “anti-racist” Leftists who hold no love or loyalty to France, because communists are almost never nationalistic, and are only so when their country already has communism. The Soviets were nationalistic because they had communism (at least the communists were willingly nationalistic, the others were forced to be nationalistic). The Chinese are nationalistic because they have communism (ditto for Chinese communists and non-communists).
But in other countries where they don’t have communism, the communists hold no love or loyalty for that country and revere already communist countries. So they see no reason not to hate and destroy the country in which they live.
It’s these ghastly people that the French are in opposition against, and thankfully, a majority of them seem to be actually against them.
And they very well ought to be. The citizens of a country should not actively hate their country. That doesn’t mean ignoring their faults and it doesn’t mean pretending like there can’t be improvement, but to actively hate one’s own country is not only odd to me personally, but also odd historically speaking.
Even for France, which is pretty notorious for revolutions and civil wars, I don’t doubt that the people who live(d) there love(d) their country. The revolutionaries of the 18th century hated the oppression of the king and the fact that the vast majority of the population was poor, hungry, and France’s only “democratic” apparatus, The Estates General, would often serve against the majority of the people of France, since it was divided amongst three sects: the clergy (First Estate), the nobility (Second Estate) and the peasantry (Third Estate) and each estate counted as a single vote, with the clergy and nobility often voting with one another as the elites of France.
Basically, imagine if the Washington Establishment got one collective vote in Congress, Hollywood elites got one collective vote, and the rest of the Americans got one collective vote. It was that lopsided for pre-revolutionary France (not to mention that the king had free reign to call The Estates General into session or not, as before Louis XVI in 1789, the last time they had a session was during the reign of Louis XIII, nearly 200 years earlier).
In any case, while the revolutionaries were fed up with the way things “worked” at that time in feudal France, I cannot say that they hated the country in itself (that isn’t to say the revolutionaries were good or right entirely, as they sought a more secular culture and are one of the biggest reasons for secularism to be dominant in Europe). Patriotism – nationalism – is the rule, not the exception, and French Leftists’ actions regarding “anti-racism” and their insistence of bringing more Muslims into France is the exception to national and world history.
But thankfully, it appears as though such people are more on the fringe side of things. And if that is the case in France, I can imagine it can be similar in other countries, like America. While we are not quite faced with the same problems as France (give Biden enough time and terrorism will skyrocket like during the Obama years, I assure you), we are faced with an apathetic, at best, administration that holds no love for our respective countries.
Americans love America, which is why we voted to elect Trump TWICE. Likewise, the French love France, which shouldn’t come as a surprise to people.
The globalist elites will be defeated, of that I am certain, in no small part because of that poll.
