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.
"A key feature of the Yellow Vests movement is its lack of affiliation to any existing political party. The Yellow Vests clearly say they don’t trust the current electoral and legislative system."

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.
Japan: Number of October Suicides Exceeded All COVID-19 Deaths Throughout 2020
The cure should not be worse than the problem itself.
Japan has seen more of its people die in one month from suicide than from total COVID-19 deaths in 2020.
Japan’s National Police Agency reported that 2,153 people committed suicide in the month of October, while fewer than 2,000 people have died from COVID-19 all year.
While it is true that Japan has historically had high rates of suicide compared to other nations, suicides had generally decreased throughout 2020.
Despite the high number of suicides in October, the Japanese have avoided implementing draconian lockdowns and restrictions for the most part, though they have been seeing record high numbers of cases in the month of November. Thus it should be interesting to see what their suicide numbers for this month look like.
