French President Emmanuel Macron says he will push a new law aimed at cracking down on alternative media and news that isn’t liberal. He invoked the term “fake news” saying he hopes to have the law in place by the end of the year.
Oh, the irony of guys like Macron thinking censorship is “freedom.” Speaking at a news conference at the Elysee Palace in Paris on Wednesday, Macron said such a law was essential, especially during elections. Sure. We can’t be having people pointing out that Macron is communist. That’s not good for reelection chances. He even says it’s to protect “liberal democracies” as if this is some sort of page out of a novel about a dystopian society.
“The freedom of the press is not a special freedom, it is the highest expression of freedom,” Macron said. “If we want to protect liberal democracies, we have to be strong and have clear rules.” He added that “A law will follow in due course.” No law has ever given anyone freedom, rather by their very nature, take it away and list a punishment, so the illogical rant flowing from his mouth is more than enough for most rational humans to roll their eyes at.
The idea of an individual freedom is incompatible with a communist ideology. The only reason to hold individual speech and information rights would be to better the society, a condition which would likely be met only in certain instances rather than across time, making the default a lack of freedom. –Stanford.edu
Macron said the law should require websites to disclose their source of funding and have a cap on the amount of money they receive from sponsored content. During an election, the government would be authorized to block a website, he said. He insisted that “press freedom” could be preserved under such a law. Of course! Suppressing free speech is always a good start to press freedom.
The Washington Post notes that “On the eve of the vote, Macron’s campaign suffered a massive cyber attack that it compared to the hacking of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign last year. U.S. intelligence agencies have blamed that operation on the Russian government.” But magically, Macron was still elected. Meaning those who voted for him didn’t care about the information released or didn’t read it anyway.
If you’re looking for logical consistency from a socialist or communist though, it’s going to take some mental gymnastics. But is anyone really surprised that a communist wants to limit free speech and press freedom? They can’t have people running around saying bad things about the government, now can they? How dare people want to free!
yes just like the NRA backed making full auto illegal.
You know of a developed country on the planet where full auto is unrestricted?
I say to the pro-EU and globalist French leader to go f#$% himself. No one controls my speech.
When the USSR dissolved the west had no peer and with it no ability to say, “Here we have a free press, see what they do over there”? Little by little we are becoming them over there. The goal is one big insect colony with everyone moving in lockstep to orders of the higher authority. The bar of political freedom is being lowered so that in two generations or less it will be at ground level. Its a training process taking the feral humans and domesticating them.
Let’s see, how many wars has France been in? And of those, how many have they won? And how many have we come to save their ass?
My point, France is nothing but a bunch of hairy pussies.
You bring up an interesting point. France had its Foreign Legion which in essence was their Army for overseas business. The French citizens didn’t care to fight for this so recruits were obtained from outside of France with French officers. A significant amount were Islamics from French colonies. They signed up for 25 years and upon completion of their rape, pillage and plunder for French business they got full citizenship and a pension. This status allowed them to sponsor others to join them, in came a massive wave of Islamic immigration. Like US slavery the advantage of cheap labor over time wasn’t so cheap. As is said in the south, “If I knew you were going to be this much of a problem I would have picked my own cotton”.
Macron needs to censor the certain illegal activities that make it to the news. What a moron. No wonder he got roped by that aged cougar…. he’s totally whipped.
And all of the American presidents of the past were the leaders of the “free world”. Not. There is no free world. Democracy is socialism on the way to communism. With a sprinkling of fascism along the way. There has never been a time like this in past history that I’m aware of. The closest thing I can come up with is the various Muslim invasions of Eastern Europe and Spain back in the day. We’re getting whacked by Marxists, Globalists and invaders. All at the same time. At least in the old days we had babies to replace the dead. The lack of babies is the straw that broke the camel’s back. It may actually be over for us.
But, but, it’s for the greater good.
France will be Muslim. That’s this punk’s goal.
The French president might benefit from reading the previous article about manliness making a comeback.
Western europe is infested with fvcking communists. This doesn’t surprise me at all. In the mean time Hungary and Poland, countries that lived behind the iron curtain, are actually standing up for freedom and individual liberty. Talk about inverted reality, wow. You can’t make this stuff up.
France should color this guy gone!
Macron is the globalist choice, his placement was more than obvious before the “election”. Anybody think differently?
Every censor is an enemy of freedom. Period.
What you say can and will be held against you is the growing reality in the once free speech nations. Globalists despise criticism and truth because they cannot rebut it without lies backed by excessive force.
Macron is painting his own safe space. As their leader, he can make it as large as he likes.

Yep, and “war is peace” too, right, Macron?
Macron said the law should require websites to disclose their source of funding
Hey, let’s apply this to the Clinton Foundation. There’s a thought
