ER Editor: Florian Philippot, leader of his own political party Les Patriotes, has been organizing regular Saturday demonstrations against the tyrannical Covid policies of the French government for around 18 months. He also posts youtube updates on a daily basis, giving his supporters truth-oriented information and analysis. His Saturday marches are controlled by a security detail he pays for (massive men in black you wouldn’t want to mess with), who are very effective at keeping people calm and out of trouble, not that they really need it. The police never have to show up and herd people, as they do for the Gilets Jaunes anti-Covid Saturday marches. This is a group of people (protest participants) we know quite well, having attended many Saturday marches ourselves. There is simply nothing of the kind happening, which the twitter video amply demonstrates. They shout ‘liberté!’ (freedom) and clap rhythmically. This is a desperate government facing the collapse of its own narrative.
Interestingly, another RT report targets (we frankly believe) this same group of protestors on the same day for allegedly having issued ‘death threats’ to a couple of MSM journalists who were there with their own security. With no substantiation. (https://francais.rt.com/france/94781-journalistes-afp-agresses-paris-marge-manifestation-pass-vaccinal. AFP journalists attacked on the sidelines of the demonstration against the vaccine pass). These journalists had labelled the demonstrators as (you guessed it) ‘far-right’. The report reads as if sections of the demonstrators are violent and dangerous, which is completely opposite to what one can see in person every Saturday. It’s puzzling.
We provide additional commentary below, posting the tweets of people, well-known and unknown, we suspect to be setting up Philippot and his supporters. There is a globalist / far-left / establishment smell to this. We know them well by now: they are the booking clerks for Pfizer.
Nazi salute during an anti-pass demonstration? Philippot denounces a fake news, video in support
Florian Philippot, who organised an anti-vaccine pass rally, denounced the manipulation of images showing people marching with their arms raised. He claims that the people were simply clapping their hands and chanting slogans.
The leader of the Patriots, Florian Philippot, has denounced the manipulation of images taken on 15 January in Paris on the fringes of the anti-vaccine pass demonstrations. A screenshot equating a group of anti-restriction demonstrators with “neo-Nazis” marching with their arms raised, had indeed circulated and had been taken up by several media, including RT France.
Translation: Clap your hands and shout freedom! that’s what was in the blurry photo of M.Darmanin. So M.Darmanin lied again, and seriously defamed. We are considering legal action.
Taper dans les mains et crier liberté ! voilà ce qu’il y avait sur la photo floue de M.Darmanin.
➡️ M.Darmanin a donc une nouvelle fois menti, et gravement diffamé.
Nous réfléchissons à une action en justice. ⤵️ pic.twitter.com/h8cvmYlvTK

The police prefecture had then made a report to the public prosecutor’s office at the express request of Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin, who had tweeted: “The photo taken on the fringes of the anti-passport demonstration of the so-called ‘Patriots’ movement is very shocking, and rightly so.”
Philippot is mulling legal action
Florian Philippot released video footage on the evening of 16 January in which this group of individuals can be seen waving their arms while shouting slogans. “Clap your hands and shout freedom! That’s what was in the blurry photo [relayed by Interior Minister Gérald] Darmanin,” commented the president of the Les Patriotes party.
Accusing the minister of having “once again lied, and seriously defamed”, he concluded, “We are thinking about legal action.” Relaying on Twitter the screenshot showing individuals dressed in black, some hooded, holding out their arms, Daphne Deschamps, who presents herself as a freelance journalist, had commented: “About 200 neo-Nazis, arms outstretched, in the middle of the street, in the heart of the anti-pass demonstration. All is well.”
(ER: The Twitter account of said Daphne Deschamps is completely devoted to showing citizens as somehow bigoted and prejudiced. She is somewhat obsessed with the ‘identitarian’ cause and simply lies about Florian Philippot’s march comprising a group of identitarians, without making the least attempt to contextualize the images and identify what the march really is. Likely, this account isn’t real and has been set up for such trouble-making purposes. She gets called out by several people for her dishonesty. Here’s one:
Translation: (Deschamps) Most of them came to participate in the march organised by Génération Identitaire for Sainte Geneviève, saint of Paris. The march left at 6pm from the Pont de la Tournelle. (ER: not remotely true)
(Thomasson) Shame on you for distorting and damaging the expression of what remains of the Republic

Edwy Plenel is a major journalist in France with his own site, Mediapart. He’s supposed to be a leftist, who massively supports Muslims in an overtly propagandistic kind of way. Roland Dumas, the ex-foreign minister under Francois Mitterrand, was told by Mitterrand that Plenel was associated with unspecified ‘foreign’ powers (we had heard NATO mentioned elsewhere). So Plenel is part of the globalist, let-Europe-be-invaded-with-mass-migration agenda, motivated to label ordinary citizens in untruthful ways. This established journalist posted the same fake reporting as this Daphne person and got called out for it, too:
Translation: Nazis marched in the middle of Paris this Saturday, without the police reacting. They are obviously not Muslims or leftists, so the reaction of the authorities is still to come… When will this big meeting of a new anti-fascist vigilance committee be held in front of the return of the worst?
Des nazis ont défilé en plein Paris ce samedi, sans que la police ne réagisse. Ils ne sont évidemment pas musulmans ou gauchistes, du coup la réaction du pouvoir se fait attendre… À quand ce grand meeting d’un nouveau comité de vigilance antifasciste face au retour du pire ? https://t.co/IzpTDCQ6Hj

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
