Sound familiar? People supporting terrorist groups over taking countries? mmm...

France is on the brink of all-out civil conflict Italics
As some 500,000 Left-wingers marched in France’s cities yesterday, shouting anti-Fascist slogans, never had Lenin’s phrase seemed more apposite: “There are decades where nothing happens; and there are weeks where decades happen.”

Upended by Emmanuel Macron’s decision last week to call a snap election after the hard-Right National Rally won over a third of the vote in the European elections, French politics is now in a state of chaos. Macron deliberately chose the shortest constitutionally-compatible timeline, with a first round to be held on June 30, and the runoff on July 7.

Defiance, hostility and suspicion reign between adversaries, but also among so-called allies, forced by circumstances into unnatural coalitions. Parties that have just finished competing for voters in a proportional representation system now face a first-past-the-post contest, and have spent last week frantically cobbling together alliances.

The Left-Green alliance, calling itself the New Popular Front, coalesced under the leadership of Jean-Luc Mélenchon’s La France Insoumise (France Unbowed). Its European election campaign focused on Gaza in a naked bid for votes from the young and the banlieues. They flew more Palestinian flags than French ones (and quite a few from former French colonies like Algeria and Tunisia, with explicit anti-French slogans), and more than one march ended in violence.

Now, in an election where local factors matter in each constituency, the Palestinian slogans and keffiyehs have miraculously vanished: the NPF is battling “fascism at our door”. The official party platform published on Friday is even more extreme than ever, calling for the suspension of EU treaties with Israel and taxes on everything.

    OD getting excited because Ukraine just does not scratch his war itch. He needs live fire and foreignors dying for no reason to be happy.

    You actually had to read (first) then read the article. It has lots of parallels to the US, especially with you personally. Hatred for the country, misplaced (well maybe not in France's part) accusations of the government being wrong in global regions, blind hatred of Israel, the rise of the intifada, and support for the Sharya law globally.

    Of course, France has the dubious "honor" of still having a vested interest (meaning they still have a major government presence in the countries) in many north African countries after the countries broke from France.

    Why would I hate France, Odorous? 🤔

  4. by oldedude on June 18, 2024 8:17 am
    Because you hate everything. You're one of the most negative people I've ever seen. If you've said anything positive on this site, please point it out.

  5. by oldedude on June 18, 2024 8:19 am
    And to boot, you hate all "government," and are very pro anarchy. Not that France is that far off now, but you want to make it easier to be living off the dole. Much easier in a welfare system like France.

    All these years and you still have no fucking clue who I am.

  7. by oldedude on June 26, 2024 1:59 pm
    You're a self-centered, egomaniacal 12 year-old narcissist who can't stand to stick to facts and has to make herself feel better every time she talks to others by using insults clothed as "humour."

    That pretty much nail it?

  8. by Indy! on June 26, 2024 2:59 pm

    Thought we agreed to play nice. Have you already conceded that you can't do it (again)?

  9. by oldedude on June 26, 2024 3:29 pm
    I was just answering your question. That's who I think you are. And how much (non) respect I have for you.

    Now we're back to our regularly sponsored niceness.

  12. by Indy! on June 27, 2024 11:49 am

  13. by oldedude on June 27, 2024 12:27 pm
    So you do have fond memories of mommy's brother baby's daddy! good to know.

  14. by Indy! on June 27, 2024 3:32 pm

    At least try to make sense, Ernie.
