Macron Talking More Globobbledegook! By Richard Miller
Is the French president Macron the mighty macaroni, competing with the Pope for stupid globalist comment of the week? Or, is this just something that low T type of men engage in?
“With President Trump already under fire as he attended the World War I centenary commemoration events in Paris for skipping a planned visit to Belleau Wood battlefield and cemetery due to heavy rain, French President Emmanuel Macron used the ceremony's culmination on Sunday to issue a firm condemnation of nationalism. Amidst a steady drizzle and just feet from world leaders including Presidents Trump and Vladimir Putin, Macron emphasized a theme which he said led to the irreversible build-up of tensions that caused the outbreak of WWI. Macron said: “Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism, nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism.”
During Sunday's events Trump and Putin are reported to have had brief face-to-face discussions after the French previously requested that no formal sideline summit take place, Reuters confirms. The French president followed this with: “In saying ‘our interests first and who care about the others,’ we erase what a nation has that’s most precious, what makes it live, what is most important: its moral values,” according to Bloomberg. Macron called for the strengthening of international institutions like the EU and U.N. and in comments simultaneously widely interpreted as "a rebuke to present-day leaders such as Trump who shun the international order in favor of nationalist policies."
“Let’s add up our hopes and not our fears,” Macron said. “Let’s reject the fascination for turning in on ourselves, violence, and domination.” Included among his examples were poverty, hunger, inequality, climate change, as well as general "ignorance" about global challenges. Throughout the weekend events pundits remarked on what they perceived as Trump's "isolation" in contrast to Chancellor Angela Merkel frequently at Macron’s side. Just prior to landing in Paris Trump had blasted Macron on Twitter for his “very insulting” comments surrounding the idea of a "European Army" that would be independent of US influence and policy. Trump echoed during an amicable meeting with Macron at the start of the weekend's events: "We want a strong Europe, it's very important to us, and whichever way we can do it the best and more efficient would be something we both want," said Trump. "We want to help Europe but it has to be fair. Right now the burden sharing has been largely on the United States."
At an intellectual level, the claim that nationalism is contrary to patriotism is incoherent, since the globalism that Macron advocates intends to eliminate the nation state and the little democratic control people have, in terms of an even more massive bureaucratic machine. How can the ordinary people have any say in the running of the EU/UN nexus? Of course they cannot, and that has always been the globalist New World Oder plan, to crush the individual, and allow people to be at the mercy of mass immigration, as Merkel’s Germany well shows. The globalists have known for hundreds of years, that most people are stupid and lazy, and that their intellectuals and rulers can be controlled by money, and are only too willing to sell out their race and nation for a mess of pottage:
