JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: ON THE CHARACTER OF FRANCE’S PRESIDENT EMMANUEL MACRON AND OF FRANCE’S ENTIRE MODERN POLITICAL SYSTEM   Leave a comment

COMMENT TO AN ARTICLE BY CECILE GUERIN IN THE GUARDIAN

 

“Macron is a fake feminist. His failure on the age of consent proves it

“In breaking his promise on the sexual and gender-based violence bill, the president has again let down French women”

 

But Macron is a fake, period.

I cannot think of a single matter where he stands out in any way, except in expressions of appreciation for his own ego.

He’s like a packaged corporate politician. He was thrown into the election by establishment interests desperate because a real woman, a real feminist of strength, might win.

I’m sorry the people of France were fooled by him, but then the French electoral system, like the British one and the American one for sure, is jerry-rigged to keep the establishment in control.

Macron is the kind of corporate product you get. You can almost predict what he will say on any topic. And you know you will never see any heroic effort for any cause. Nor will you see any principles to be emulated and admired. Like Hollande, who was, if anything, even worse.

Like Sarkozy who took a fortune from a wealthy old heiress said to have been senile and from Qaddafi whom he then helped kill.

That’s quite a political system you have now in France.
