The ridiculous celebration of Bastille Day reminds you Don Quixote attacking the windmill. Bastille was a benevolent prison of only eight inmates who were disturbed by the attacking crowds. Yes, Bastille was a sort of windmill in the minds of hoi polloi.
The Bastille Day celebrations were also tinged with mourning, one year on since a vicious Islamist attack in the Mediterranean city of Nice where a man drove a truck into a crowd, killing 86 people.
The Paris parade this year marked the centenary of the United States entering World War I in 1917 and was set to feature 63 planes, 29 helicopters, 241 horses and 3,720 soldiers.
Macron, standing in a jeep surrounded by dozens of republican guardsmen on horseback, smiled and waved to the crowds amassed along the Champs-Elysees as he arrived for the parade.
“This is a wonderful national celebration,” Trump said at a joint news conference with Macron on Thursday, adding: “We look very much forward to it. Spectacular.”
“Our two nations are forever joined together by the spirit of revolution and the fight for freedom,” he added.
Macron rolled out the red carpet for Trump’s two-day visit, hoping to improve relations and persuade the US president to change his mind about withdrawing from the global Paris agreement on climate change.
The warm body language between the two leaders evident in Paris was at odds with broader concerns about the transatlantic relationship since Trump’s election victory in November last year.
A deliberate side-effect of Macron’s policies is population change. Like many European leaders, Emmanuel Macron seems convinced that the remedy for the demographic deficit and the aging of ethnic European populations is more immigration. On September 6, 2015, he stated that “immigration is an opportunity for all of us”. On February 12, 2017, he said, “I will propose to the Algerian government the creation of a Franco-Algerian Bureau of Youth, to encourage mobility between the two shores of the Mediterranean”. A few weeks later, he declared that “the duty of Europe is to offer asylum to all those who seek its protection” and that “France must take its fair share of refugees”.
Almost all refugees arriving in France are Muslims. France already has the greatest percentage of Muslims in Europe. Macron wants Islam to have more room in France. His position concerning other religions is not known. His position on Islam is clear:
“Today, Muslims of France are poorly treated … Tomorrow, a new structure will make it possible to relaunch the work sites of the Muslim religion in France: the construction and the improvement of worthy places of worship will take place where their presence is necessary, and the training of imams of France will be organized.”
The French branch of the Muslim Brotherhood congratulated Macron on his victory. It published an official communiqué saying: “Muslims think that the new President of the Republic will allow the reconciliation of France with itself and will allow us to go farther, together.”
Macron’s prime minister, Edouard Philippe, has close ties with the Muslim Brotherhood and favored their installation in the city of which he is the mayor, Le Havre. Richard Ferrand — a Socialist MP, the secretary-general of En Marche! since its inception, and now Minister for the Cohesion of Territories — has been financially contributing to the anti-Israel BDS movement and to “pro-Palestinian” organizations for years. Gerard Collomb, the Socialist Mayor of Lyon, and now Interior Minister, financed the French Institute of Muslim Civilization that will open its doors in December 2017.
Macron is a useful idiot of Islam. How the French could have chosen Emmanuel Macron? The mainstream media have played a role. Evidently, also, some people do not want to know the truth, even when the truth is in front of their eyes. Some people are accustomed to the idea that there are people above them in the hierarchy whose job is to think about, and take care of the big things while they, the citizens, the mice, take care of their own little lives.
A majority of the French did not choose Macron but apparently accept that there are people above them. Those who do not accept this fact so easily are many, but in minority, and they are likely to become a smaller minority. Macron is counting on their resignation. It is not certain, however, that the millions of people who voted for Marine Le Pen, despite her extremely problematic closeness to Russia and the harsh campaign against her, or those who voted for the leftist candidates, will so easily give up. It is also not certain, thanks to willful blindness and appeasement, that Islamists will mellow, or that Jihadi attacks will stop.
No-go zones are no longer relegated to the suburbs, where migrants and Muslims have usually been concentrated. No-go zones, through mass migration, have been emerging in the heart of Paris, Bordeaux, Toulouse, Marseille, Grenoble, Avignon — districts “privatized” here and there by a mix of drug traffickers, Salafist zealots and Islamic youth gangs. The main victims are women. They are sexually harassed and some are sexually assaulted.
Politicians, as usual, are fully informed of the situation imposed upon women. A report from the High Commissioner on Equality revealed that in the sensitive urban areas, nearly one in ten women has suffered physical or sexual violence. Public areas are occupied exclusively by men who park there, and women are merely authorized to pass through them. Women have been seen public spaces desert them. You have to stay away, not provoke. In some places, male groups monopolize public spaces and sometimes block the access to the entrances of buildings. Women are obliged to avoid the elevator in order to flee glances and remarks that are unpleasant. They have go up the stairs — dirty, unlit and several stories high. Cafés are occupied exclusively by men; women do not dare to enter them; they even avoid passing by.
Pseudorefugees are back at Calais! Niggers, ragheads, and naive do-gooders of Calais jungle raise hell. People-smugglers are going to extreme lengths to get migrants in Calais across the Channel to Kent. Placing debris on motorways to stop vehicles and then ambush them is a familiar tactic used in Calais. Truck drivers are threatened with chainsaws and lorries are smashed and set on fire. Migrants wielding bats and knives smash up vehicles on roads near the town as their owners sat in traffic.
The naive do-gooders of Jungle are not so naive after all. They are there for free sex and orgies! Volunteers in the Calais Jungle have been sexually exploiting refugees and even child migrants. The Calais Jungle is now a free brothel, a magnet of pedophiles! Any man or woman can come in and rape a child! Sex tourism galore! Sex-deprived Brits come to Jungle for orgies, pretending they are volunteers!
Migrants have become increasing audacious and violent in their attempts to enter the UK illegally. Some roads are now a no-go zone between midnight and 6am. The situation at the Jungle has become uncontrollable as police numbers drop and migrant numbers rise.
We know from the drama in Calais that mobs of fighting age men are staking their claim to economic betterment while the liberal left continue to grant them refugee or asylum status before the fact. They are braying jackals, thieves, and muggers – those willing to flout the law in their search for freebies in Britain. And even then, they’ll probably complain about their complimentary meals, provided courtesy of the British tax payer.
Look back to recent pronouncements, admissions even, made by charities in Calais. Clothes and food are being dumped and burnt by the migrants in Calais. They have enough food, they have enough clothes and we have seen clothes everywhere thrown.
The fact is the British people are being played for mugs again, and the pro-migrant, disaster tourism brigades who stoke up tensions in Calais drip feed news stories into the media. Mass migration and open borders is a bumper industry. The British government is spending tax payer money funding these groups who attack the tax payer and indeed the British government.
At Calais, you will meet niggers and ragheads who destroyed their papers and refuse to be fingerprinted. Most of them are middle class and economic migrants and admit they are not refugees. They just want Brits to provide housing, welfare, and free access to the British NHS. But if you are honest about your status then you would have claimed asylum in the first country you arrived in.
Human feces were found in Coke cans in bottling plants. The night shift at a Coca-Cola plant was disrupted when a container of cans clogged up the machines, only for workers to discover a number were filled with human waste! It was absolutely horrible, and the machines had to be turned off for about 15 hours to be cleaned.
Some migrants have made that long journey in the lorry and in their desperation were forced to use the cans instead of a toilet. Cans arrive at factories without tops on, to be filled with the fizzy drink before they are sealed and sold.
The Trumps and Macrons enjoyed a “dinner between friends” on Thursday at a Michelin-starred restaurant on the Eiffel Tower, enjoying beef with truffle sauce and warm strawberry and yogurt sorbet.
Trump also said Thursday that the bond between the US and France, as well as the friendship between him and Macron, was “unbreakable.”
Nice in mourning
Bastille Day commemorates the storming of the Bastille prison in 1789 – the start of the French Revolution and a turning point in world history.
This year’s celebrations are likely to be more sombre than usual, with Nice remembering last year’s victims when a Tunisian man drove a truck in into a crowd of families watching a fireworks display.
In less than three minutes, 86 people including 15 children lost their lives, and another 450 were injured. Of the dead, 37 were foreigners of 19 different nationalities.
Instead of a fireworks display this year on the seafront Promenade des Anglais boulevard, there will be candles, a memory book and a solemn speech by Macron.
The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for last year’s attack by one of its “soldiers” — 31-year-old Tunisian Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, shot dead at the end of his rampage — though no direct link has been found.
The attack left a “gaping wound”, said local Emilie Petitjean, who lost her nine-year-old son and has been tasked by a victims’ association with planning a ceremony on behalf of 76 families.
“It’s a recognition. Everyone knows we have suffered. I don’t expect to get better, but I expect Nice to be honoured,” she said.
France has been under a state of emergency since November 2015, when 130 people were slaughtered in a wave of coordinated violence across Paris, with French lawmakers voting last week to extend it for the sixth time.
More than 130,000 security and emergency service workers have been deployed to protect revellers during this year’s Bastille Day celebrations.
