International ‘Founding principles HAVE BEEN LOST’: Macron blasts US media for legitimizing Islamist violence

    French President Emmanuel Macron has accused the US media of “legitimizing” Islamist violence and smearing his country as racist after a series of terrorist attacks that began with the beheading of a schoolteacher in October.
    Macron reportedly called New York Times columnist Ben Smith on Thursday to complain about media coverage of France’s latest round of Islamist violence, contrasting reaction around the world to the outpouring of international support for France following the terrorist attacks that killed 130 people in November 2015.

    “When I see, in that context, several newspapers which I believe are from countries that share our values – journalists who write in a country that is the heir to the Enlightenment and the French Revolution – when I see them legitimizing this violence and saying that the heart of the problem is that France is racist and Islamophobic, then I say the founding principles have been lost,” Macron told Smith in a column published on Saturday.

    Islamist terrorists have killed more than 250 people in France since 2015, the most among Western countries. The latest wave began when teacher Samuel Paty was beheaded on October 16 by an 18-year-old jihadist migrant in suburban Paris. Paty was allegedly targeted for showing his middle-school students cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed for a lesson on freedom of expression.

    Macron responded by honoring Paty and defending free-speech rights and France’s culture of secularism. His government carried out dozens of raids on individuals and Islamic groups accused of radicalism. More attacks followed, including the stabbing murders of three people in Nice – including one who was decapitated by a Tunisian migrant. Angered by Macron’s aggressive response, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan called for a boycott of French products.

    Some of the headlines:

    “Macron’s war on Islamic separatism only divides France further,”
    Washington Post:
    instead of fighting systemic racism, France wants to reform Islam.
    The New York Times :
    Is France fueling Muslim terrorism by trying to prevent it?
    The Times’ first headline about the beheading: “French police shoot and kill man after a fatal knife attack on the street.”


    Continue reading


    Macron is spot on here. Legitimizing terrorism is simply unacceptable and should be not tolerated. Thankfully people are realizing that CNN and friends are not in the business of news reporting, but their real aim is to push a political agenda harmful to the country and its citizens.
    MSM is gaining formidable enemies and their lifespan is quickly coming to an end.

    Man Macron don't make me agree with you. Seriously, he's right and I'm mad that I am agreeing with him.
    MSM doesn't care who they hurt. They want ratings and have become yellow dog journalists

    Macron is being a whiny bitch because even many Westerners don’t agree with his retarded approach on this. All this because a few outlets wrote semi critical Op Eds lol, pathetic.

    Nobody actually legitimized the violence, he’s just being overly sensitive. The problem with Macron’s approach is he completely frames the problem through a single lens that just happens to absolve the French government of any and all responsibility. Macron is really a shitty leader, and very tone deaf.

    This would all go a lot smoother if everyone just accepted Allah as our true god with Muhammad as his prophet,

    Seems like he's not too keen on freedom of expression when it comes to criticizing himself and France. Or calling for boycotts.

    Macron is right. The MSM Reich desperately pushes the every white is racist narrative and any events are a result of that.

    The MSM and the masters of the universe are the greatest disease the US has ever faced.

    what do you mean his approach? IMO His approach has been rather tame and what others have said and done has been attributed to him by the media (like projecting the images of Mohammad of the sides of building ect).

    When it comes to the legacy of the war in Africa and how those family’s who backed France and took french citizenship were treat then yes the government should accept responsibility. Citizens living in poverty? Yes it is their responsibility. However, and I say this as someone who does not like him, what I have seen with regard to his response is a condemnation of the slaughter of a teacher, a vocal defence of freedom of expression and a mosque who openly and very publicly called for the teachers murder getting raided by the police.

    I absolutely agree with you he is a shit leader and no one will miss him when he’s gone but I’m not really seeing much condemnation with regard to his approach to this outside some media outlets. Well excluding those with business interest in the Islamic world of course



    That’s actually a really good point

    Are there any examples of what he's talking about, because I have a hard time believing that any major news outlet has written anything that amounts to "France kinda deserves it," which is basically what he's claiming.

    That said, I don't really have a problem with France's response to the violence they've suffered.

    Macron feels like he's doing a soft version of what a ton of despots have done throughout history.

    >Find a boogeyman
    >Demonize them
    >?????
    >Profit?


    Tito did it. Franco did it. Pol Pot did it. Mao did it. Stalin. Vlad the Impaler (Hell, Vlad used the same group though it could be argued Vlad did it because of a personal vendetta with the Sultan over what happened to his father). Trump to an extent. Cold War US leaders (McCarthy). And the biggest one is a fucking Austrian dude that wasn't Aryan but argued Aryan's were the greatest race ever.

    yes, I realize what I just did and I do not care.

    Oh man, you should've been hanging with me when he told the refugees to go back to Africa.

    All cold war presidents - commie boogeyman
    GWB - Radical Islam boogeyman
    Trump - radical Islam boogeyman, migrant horde boogeyman, socialist boogeyman.

    That's why Macron looks so foolish here, not a single western media outlet condoned the murder of the teacher, they only criticized the clumsy response. His position seems to be that anything less than full throated support for the French government equates to supporting terrorism. That's the way despots talk.

    Firstly, lets go back to his allegation that France isn't getting enough support, that's a lie. France is getting plenty of international support. The reason he said that is because he doesn't like criticism of the French government.

    Secondly, Macron's approach is stupid because it only leads to further alienation of his own Muslim population which should be the bulwark against terrorism, it shouldn't be seen as a potential 5th column (which is how they're treated, thus becoming a self fulfilling prophecy). Plenty of studies show that the vast majority of French Muslims are very secular in their mind set, they're actually more secular and LESS religious than American Muslims. Yet American Muslims are thriving and French Muslims aren't, why? Many reasons, but one of them is definitely discrimination and no strong laws that prohibit tacit discrimination, also a lack of programs aimed at giving them more opportunities. In France they don't even take a census on religion and background to supposedly keep everything "equal", however on the practical level everyone knows who the north and west africans are, so they face job discrimination like crazy. France doesn't even have the stomach to tackle these baseline societal issues. So instead they put ALL the blame on the Muslim community. When other western countries point this out, the French lose their shit.

    Notice who some of the people I listed include.

    GWB I get adding but I also am conflicted. I was ok with going into Afghanistan to go after Al Qaeda. We fucked the country up by having nothing in the plans for what happens when we shredded them but I still get it.

    Iraq I don't.

    Please... Provide links to any pieces written by journalists at any reputable US papers who attempted to justify the school teacher's beheading. I've got to see this.
