Macron is badly mistaken or else devious. The old demons are the same old European demons, oligarchy, feudalism and socialism, but not nationalism.
If nations avoided international entanglements as President Washington advised, and instead clung to nationalism, patriotism, their Bibles and their guns, then the world would see – and would have seen – far fewer wars. It was oligarchy and royalty that whipped the flames of war, and entangled nations with treaties, and then insisted God, kings and honor bound all men to fight. Emmanuel Macron wants a military of the European Union to defend against America. And he wants an arms control deal for cyber warfare. Beware. No doubt this deal is designed to end freedom of speech. He’s a madman with a will to power and his silk panties are twisted.
pa·tri·ot·ism, noun. definition: the quality of being patriotic; vigorous support for one’s country.
On this day honoring veterans who liberated his country in two wars, Emmanuel Macron, President of France, speaking in Paris to gathered world leaders for the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI, caused hundreds of thousands of veterans to roll over in their graves.
Macron said in his speech and on his Twitter page: “Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism. Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism. By putting our own interests first, with no regard for others, we erase the very thing that a nation holds dearest, and the thing that keeps it alive: its moral values.” Verified account @EmmanuelMacron,
“Le patriotisme est l’exact contraire du nationalisme : le nationalisme en est la trahison. En disant « nos intérêts d’abord et qu’importent les autres ! », on gomme ce qu’une Nation a de plus précieux, ce qui la fait vivre : ses valeurs morales.” @EmmanuelMacron,
Barack Obama commented in response on Twitter: “Preach.”
In defense of the French people, recent polls show 71% of them oppose President Macron. You know the proven adage of politicians: when things are not going well at home, look abroad.
Merci is the only word a Frenchman should say to an American in commemorating either World War. This Veterans day is another day that will live in infamy, thanks to foolish, globe-besotted Emmanuel Macron. He is just another example of the power absolutely corrupting politicians into madmen. Like the power mad Archduke who began WWI, Macron also wants a military to rule Europe.
Pointing his crooked finger at Americans, calling nationalism leprosy, French President Macron derides Americans and nationalism for weakening the European Union. The frustration of globalists is palpable since their leader Merkel lost in Germany, and she will resign at yearend. The EU and Macron are feeling the heat rising from anti-EU nationalism in Poland, Hungary, Austria, Italy and more nations pushing back on the unelected globalist bureaucrats of the EU. George Soros poured another $18 billion into his Open Society Foundation, after both he and his social justice were rejected in his home country. No surprise Macron needs an external enemy. His greatest mistake was pointing at America. His finger stinks.
Macron, and Merkel before him, along with the unelected EU, have been pushing for a one world order, bureaucracies layered on bureaucracies, rungs in the ladder to eliteness. But the EU nations around them are pushing back, starting with rejection of the EU and UN immoral and unfounded edicts that international migration is a human right, while giving lip service to national sovereignty. Nein Macron.
Do you remember the doom and gloom statements following the UK’s vote to exit the EU (i.e. Brexit)? The global elites, bankers, bureaucrats predicted economic collapse of the UK would result from severing itself from the massive, unelected, expensive European Union. But instead sovereignty and free markets are winning: UK economic growth rate hits highest level since late 2016. Let freedom ring.
Macron, France, Merkel and Germany should heed the advice of Thomas Sowell at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution: “When you are your own worst enemy, someone who tells you that other people are the cause of your problems is no friend.” ~ Thomas Sowell. August 21, 1999.
Macron’s passive aggressive aspirations to global leadership have less chance than the Maginot Line.
