Feeling Heat From the Yellow Vests, Macron Finally Vows to Fight ‘Political Islam’

French President Emmanuel Macron is changing his tune regarding multiculturalism due to populist anger.

Published

The Yellow Vest resistance throughout France is apparently having a serious effect on French President Emmanuel Macron, as he has shifted his rhetoric drastically to call out the threat of “political Islam.”

“Political Islam wants to secede from our republic,” Macron said during an address on Apr. 5. He claims he wants French government to be “intractable” against this emerging threat to French national sovereignty.

“We are talking about people who, in the name of a religion, pursue a political project,” Macron added.

Macron claims that he is committed to a secular France and believes the term has been hijacked by Islamists attempting to completely transform the culture.

“We must not hide when we talk about secularism. We do not really talk about secularism. We talk about the communitarianism that has settled in certain neighborhoods of the republic,” he said, referring to the self-segregation of Muslims in France.

This is quite different from Macron’s previous statements where he appeared very accommodating to the invading horde and counter-signaled Hungarian President Viktor Orban and Italian interior minister Matteo Salvini in part for their strong stances against migrants.

“It is clear that today a strong opposition is building up between nationalists and progressives and I will yield nothing to nationalists and those who advocate hate speech,” Macron said in opposition to the right-wing populist leaders.

However, Macron is moving away from embracing diversity and multiculturalism after sustained resistance from the Yellow Vests movement. The rowdy group of French patriots continue to organize every weekend despite Macron’s repressive tactics that have already resulted in nine deaths.

It remains to be seen if Macron is being honest about his willingness to combat “political Islam” and preserve the national character of France. If he is too weak to be up to the task, the Yellow Vests will continue to grow in numbers as they struggle to make their country great again.

Italian Populist Youth Group Praises Trump for His Peace Efforts

The Lega Nord is one of Europe’s strongest populist parties.

Published

The Lega Giovani, the youth branch of Salvini’s Lega party, announced its support in nominating President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Due to Trump’s efforts in brokering peace deals between Gulf Arab states and Israel, one Norwegian lawmaker Christian Tybring-Gjedde nominated the president for the Nobel Peace prize.

In a statement, Luca Toccalini, a member of the Italian Parliament and Chairman of Lega Giovani, declared that the “globalist left is losing its mind, scared by the outcome of the upcoming American elections, and this latest news decisively increased their worries.”

Toccalini added that Lega Giovani “strongly” supports the “nomination of President Donald Trump, a just reward for the continued dedication of his administration for lasting peace with a bilateral and multi polar approach.”

The populist Italian member of Parliament noted how Trump’s Middle East agenda has contrasted with Obama’s:

After a decade of turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa, sponsored by a globalist agenda and President Obama’s dreams of revolution, the last 4 years have seen great improvement for the stability in our neighbourhood which has also helped Europe.

Toccalini concluded:

Wishing four more years of peace and greatness, as Lega Giavani we strongly support Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Matteo Salvini and Lega have led the way in putting populism on the map throughout Europe. Salvini broke the mold by implementing pro-gun reforms in 2018 and 2019. What seems like a concept that is only confined to the U.S., now the right to bear arms is starting to enter the conversation in Europe. Political organizations like Lega have undoubtedly changed political discourse in Italian politics and Europe, for that matter.

Youth organizations such as Lega Giovani will play a substantial role in spreading Lega’s message and educating younger generations of Italians and preparing them to be the new populist vanguard of an ever-changing European polity.
