ER Editor: This is an interesting piece supporting Eric Striker’s assertion of Macron’s about-face on Islam. See Emmanuel Macron could become European poster boy for India’s right-wing. But we can assure readers it is, as Striker notes, a way of stealing Le Pen’s thunder for the 2022 election. There is simply nothing sincere about it. And illegal migration will still continue into France unabated.
France: Prominent Academics and Macron Administration Attack American Anti-Racist Ideology As “Anti-White
Emmanuel Macron is making enemies in the American press after his left-liberal (ER: globalist) party, La République En Marche!, attempted to pass a bill that would withhold funding from academic institutions that preach values alien to the French Republic.
This rule was defeated after pressure from prominent figures, but it is one of a number of radical reforms Macron and party are trying to slam through the Senate.
With the 2022 election over the horizon and massive pressure from populists to his left, right and in the streets (Yellow Vests), Macron has reacted to the killing of school teacher Samuel Paty by a Salafist fanatic by trying to rebrand himself as a law and order anti-Islam strongman.
What is most interesting about his “transformation” is his administration, which campaigned on a center-left Clintonian platform, overt hostility to local “social justice warriors” and an increasingly De Gaullian, anti-American pivot.
Earlier in the month, Macron’s Education Minister Jean-Michel Blanquer railed against the alien infiltration of American “Critical Race Theory” in the French social sciences. This is in the context of Black Lives Matter style violence that engulfed France over the summer, which surprised and angered the population. (ER: But we know from people inside the French education system that ‘gender theory’, climate ideology and all the other trendy positions, including rendering the education system more watered down, is quietly going on behind the scenes. We’re sure that being ‘against’ Critical Race Theory is just a posture.)
100 prominent French academics signed a letter affirming Blanquer’s statement, and calling for the French people to defeat an “American” ideology that preaches hatred of “whites” (a word that, unlike Trump, they explicitly used) and the indigenous Gallo-Romans of France. While the academics and Blanquer primarily blame Saudi-funded Islamist preachers for the death of Samuel Paty, they also believe US influence on their intellectuals has made it socially acceptable to murder white people.
In an interview with a French journal, Blanquer reiterated this sentiment:
“There is a fight to be waged against an intellectual matrix coming from American universities and intersectional theses that want to essentialize communities and identities, at the antipodes of the Republican model, which postulates the equality between human beings, independently of their characteristics of origin, sex, religion. It is the breeding ground for a fragmentation of societies that converges with the Islamic model.”
Macron has also been working to pass a number of laws he says are needed to combat crime, including one that would potentially criminalize filming and identifying police officers. This is being seen as a response to left-wing activists, who have as of late been filming police and editing the encounters to take away context while they arrest or struggle with individual black criminals and illegal immigrants rioting in their encampments. The downside of this law is that it will likely be used to protect police officers who commit brutal acts against legitimate mass protests, which the exasperated Macron administration is bracing itself for in the next year or two.
Macron’s new costume appears intended to totally co-opt Marine Le Pen, who is known for her fixation on Islam. Many of Macron’s aggressive new legislative proposals would be controversial and decried as “fascist” if tabled by Le Pen, but with a crime wave sweeping the country that the media is covering up, many leftists and liberals are staying quiet and letting Macron do what he thinks he has to do to prevent Le Pen.
A 2022 run-off is likely to be between Macron and Le Pen, meaning that leftists and upper class metropolitans vote for Macron, even if in his desperation, he is forced to placate voters and prosecute them for hate speech for filming a cop or shut down their gender studies and decolonization classes.
In the end however, Macron’s attempt to use “Trumpist” style politics — make a lot of noise that rustles the feathers and triggers journalists, NGOs and other despised ruling class entities while not accomplishing anything substantial — could fail. Most of the “law and order” and attacks on the Judeo-left have been superficial and pulled back last minute.
As the anti-Islam-liberal playbook grows obsolete, Macron has been leaning into attacks on America, which is new in 21st century European politics. How serious Macron is can be debated, but the US Jewish press has suddenly started to treat him like Viktor Orban or Vladimir Putin.
People outside of the United States, even centrist upholders of the liberal new world order, are starting to express how disturbed they are by the genocidal hatred of white people Jews through the Washington power structure implement at home and export abroad.
