The timing was perfect. Less than twenty-four hours after the election of the ambiguous Roberta Metsola to the presidency of the European Parliament, the French president, Emmanuel Macron, immediately launches a speech which outlines the Europe of (his) dreams. A Europe where green is a non-negotiable principle, but where there is no right to life for the unborn.
The occasion was provided by the presentation of the program of the semester of French Presidency of the Council of the European Union: six months that the Elysée Palace intends to exploit to the full to relaunch, behind the facade of Europeanism, deeply shaken in recent years by numerous systemic crises, a neo-Malthusian ideological program.
Poland and Hungary in the crosshairs
“Twenty years after the proclamation of our Charter of Fundamental Rights, which consecrated the abolition of the death penalty everywhere in the Union,” Macron declared, “I hope that we can update this Charter to be specifically more explicit on the protection of the environment and the recognition of the right to abortion.” His words sound like a warning to the new president of the European parliament, almost universally presented by the press as a pro-life, although in reality, as “iFamNews” wrote, she is well disposed to play two parts in a comedy.
Nor were there any lack of more or less veiled attacks on Poland and Hungary in the French president’s speech, when he feared the risks of an “end to the rule of law” and therefore a “return to authoritarian regimes”.
More digital surveillance for all
In short, Macron’s program is explicit, clear and aligned with the wishes of globalist elites and the so-called “Great Reset”: a “universal climate consciousness”, in honor of the “neutrality goal” that Europe has set for itself by 2050. At the same time, there is the challenge of the “digital revolution” and the construction of “a single digital market to create European champions.”
Last but not least: the implementation of the Digital Markets Act and Digital Services Act platforms, which, according to Macron, “will allow us to protect digital actors economically, but also protect our citizens and democratic debate against manipulation and hate speech.” Where “hate speech” means any conception different from the secularist and neo-Malthusian ones, so deeply rooted in Brussels and Paris.
Accusations from the right-wing challenger
Eric Zemmour responded quickly to Macron’s statements. For the “Reconquête” candidate, the president does not have “the right, just as the EU Commission does not have the right, to impose the values of contemporary Western progressivism on countries like Poland and Hungary, which reject them”. Concluding that Macron “praises the rule of law, but forgets and does not want to see that the rule of law has become today the screen of the government of judges,” who want to “impose their ideological vision on us.”
