Well fuck you, too, Macron:
In a wildly authoritarian move, French President Emmanuel Macron has declared the nation’s unvaccinated public to be “not citizens” of France, and claims he is intentionally just trying to “piss them off.”
So much for science, huh?
The bizarre and unlawful declaration comes as the French parliament debates new legislation that would eliminate unvaccinated people from public life entirely, even if they test negative for COVID-19.
The moves belie the oft-repeated claim that COVID-19 vaccines are purely a health measure, especially in the face of new data from surrounding countries that proves the vaccinated are now more likely to contract, and therefore spread, the virus.
Speaking to Le Parisien, Macron furiously ranted:
“I am not about pissing off the French people… But as for the non-vaccinated, I really want to piss them off. And we will continue to do this, to the end. This is the strategy.
I’m sure that won’t backfire. I’m sure the unvaccinated won’t respond by being as ungovernable and non-compliant as possible purely out of spite.
It’s not hard to see why this douchefuck has been slapped in the face and pelted with eggs over the past few years.
He continued: “In a democracy, the worst enemies are lies and stupidity… We are putting pressure on the unvaccinated by limiting, as much as possible, their access to activities in social life.”
No, you closeted fuckface, the biggest problem in a democracy is “elected officials” who dream of being dictators.
France claims to have vaccinated almost 90 percent of those eligible. Despite claims by health professionals that this should be enough to control the spread of COVID-19, the virus is still infecting and spreading, including amongst the vaccinated across Europe and the United States.
But the unvaccinated are the problem.
Either Macron is a total moron who has no idea what’s going on, or he’s so corrupt that he’s willing to forsake his own countrymen for Big Pharma.
I don’t see how you could blame the unvaccinated for this:
A 90% Vaccinated™ country having a Covid wave 10x worse than any prior wave… hmmmmm…
It must be the unvaccinated people’s fault!
What a piece of literal shit Macron is.
This is not how a leader of a nation talks.
If he truly believes the vaccine is good for people, there is no reason for him to talk like this.
If he truly felt the vaccine would help people, he would not be angry and spiteful toward those who won’t get the vaccine.
He would calmly and convincingly explain to the people why a 90% vaccination rate isn’t enough. He would alleviate their concerns with in-depth explanations and citations of reliable and reputable studies.
He would actually try to win hearts and minds, and win people’s trust.
But he doesn’t actually care about that. He thinks the fact that some people don’t trust him or the pharmaceutical companies isn’t his problem, and doesn’t reflect poorly on him.
This is what the ruling class in the West is truly like with the mask off: they harbor a terrible and visceral hatred for the people of their own country when those people don’t comply. In this way, Macron is a lot like Obama.
Governments all across the West no longer feel any obligation at all to earn the trust and support of their citizens. They feel like the citizens of their various nations are hurdles to be overcome–skeptical, stubborn idiots who must be duped or, when that fails, simply strong-armed into submission.
This is the tyrannical impulse rearing its ugly head.
Politicians are not supposed to be in charge. They are supposed to be empowered by the people–in other word, they’re not in charge, we are. We simply give them the power to do the things that we want them to do, because somebody has to have power.
In fact the politicians are supposed to fear the people.
That is no longer the case in most of the supposedly “Free World.” Not in America, not in France, not in Canada, not in Germany, not in Italy, not in the UK–all of those nations are now governed by wannabe tyrants.
As a result, civil disobedience and non-compliance by the citizens of those nations is not only encouraged but crucial.
If Macron says his goal is to piss the unvaccinated off and make their lives as miserable as possible, it should be the goal of the unvaccinated to piss Macron off and make his life as miserable as possible.
“Elected leaders” in “free nations” should not be able to get away with saying stuff like this.
I say this quite a bit, but it remains true: this is how governments get overthrown.
I hate to use the “O-word” but how can your mind not go in that direction when it’s so obvious that our leaders are becoming tyrants?
This might come as a surprise, but people do not like to be talked to in this way. Especially people who see themselves as a free people.
I don’t want revolutions and civil wars and chaos. I really don’t. I like peace and prosperity. I would love for democracy to work as intended.
But I also like freedom, and if the leaders of supposed free nations no longer appear to believe in freedom and the rule of the people, then what other option is there?
If ever there comes a day where people in the West begin revolting, it will be 100% the fault of the elected leaders who chose to become tyrants.
This is how governments get overthrown. I’m not saying I want to see it happen. In fact, I’ve spent a lot of time on this site writing in-depth about how I believe America specifically can be saved peacefully and democratically and through the constitutional process.
But we’ve got politicians now admitting their goal is to make unvaccinated people second class citizens, and to simply make life miserable for them as much as possible.
This is how tyrants talk. And as history shows us, there’s really only one way to deal with tyrants.
This is not a call to arms; it’s a prediction.
