France prides itself on being the Pays du Droit de l'Homme, the country where human rights were born. This year, human rights have been knocked for six and new 'liberticide' laws are being introduced to cow the population.
Just three weeks ago, a small group of 'watchers' (veilleurs) were carrying out their usual peaceful protest against against gay marriage, rent-a-womb, etc., and were making their way to the Champs Elysée. Suddenly a group of CRS spotted the leader of the movement and rushed at him brandishing Tasers. He was doing nothing wrong, but he took fright and ran into a pizza restaurant. The CRS barged in and arrested him and took him down to the station where he refused to give his DNA, not having done anything wrong, and gave his mother's maiden name for his own. BAD Nicholas.
For these two 'crimes' which had nothing to do with the original arrest, he was put on a rapid path before a judge who condemned him to 4 months in prison, 2 of them firm. That evening he slept in the top security shit hole of a prison the French reserve for violent bandits, and a lefty 'comedian' tweeted that hoped he would change his ideological tune once he'd experienced the 'joys' of the shower the next day (we all know what he meant). Thus Nicholas became France's first political prisoner since... I don't know when... the beginning of the Vth Republic?
Meanwhile, on the day PSG won the French footie title, hoards of banlieue hooligans, 'les chances pour la France' poured into the centre of Paris and ripped apart the Trocadero, held up a tourist bus, opened the luggage compartment and thieved all they could get their hands on. The CRS just stood by and looked on at the damage being inflicted on private and council property, not wanting to 'stir up trouble' and cause a riot. Those who happened to be intercepted later were merely rapped on the knuckles and told be good in future. Not one prison sentence was issued.
Meanwhile, an RER train was held up at Grigny, Robin Hood style, by more 'chances pour la France' and its passengers robbed of everything they had of value, not to be given to the poor of course. When the perpetrators were caught thanks to security videos they were... rapped on the knuckles and told not to do it again. Not a single prison sentence was to be had.
Recently a social worker working for the Paris Mairie was sacked because he criticised the Qur'an during a private conversation about Islam with a colleague. The colleague then, unbeknownst to him, went and complained to her hierarchy which, after a few weeks of persecution, sacked the man, the reason given in writing being that he had criticised the Qur'an. There is no crime of blasphemy in France, or there wasn't... Not only was he sacked but he's been blacklisted so he can no longer work in the public sector. For a social worker, this is extremely serious.
And lastly I come to the story of Clément Méric, an 'Antifa' (extreme left-wing antifascist) who, on June 6 was killed during a punch-up with an extreme right-wing group. This is the story as related to us in the press: a kind, gentle, thoughtful, brilliant student at Sciences Po; an idealist who believed in the socialist dream, he was brutally murdered in a premeditated lynching by an evil, violent fascist wearing a knuckle duster who beat him to death during a fight.
The press cried foul and demanded the immediate
There was even a minute's silence in the Assemblé (Parliament) and a march was held last Sunday in memory of poor Clément.
Then three weeks after the event, after the hand-wringing, naval-gazing, solemn words and attempts to outlaw the right-wing groups, we get the truth. Actually we already knew the truth because there had been independent witnesses to the event such as the security guard of the shop where the two groups had initially met, but no one in the media or the Gov was taking much notice of him. The Procureur was though, and had already decided that Clément was not murdered, but the victim of an accident, to the disgust and disbelief of the msm and all followers of the extreme left.
The truth was further elucidated via a video taken by a security camera belonging to the RATP (trains). It shows Estaban Morillo, the extreme right-winger, being attacked and defending himself against two antifas. Then Clément Méric can be seen behind him aiming a punch at his head. Estaban turns in self-defence and lands a punch on his face. Clément, who was not that strong having had Leukaemia, collapses and never gets up. Not exactly a premeditated murder.
Furthermore, Clément's group had been stalking Estaban and his girlfriend on the internet and it's possible that they recognised him and went for the punch-up. The fascist group had tried to avoid a conflict according to the security guard but the antifas were determined to 'get them' and lay in wait at the metro station.
What is disgusting about this whole affair is that the police had the video right from the start and could have stopped the press/Gov manipulation of public opinion, but 'didn't want to stir up more trouble'. Of course not... The Gov knew very well what had happened thanks to the video, but used the incident to demonise the extreme right and call for it to be banned.
What I want to know is, now that the truth is out, will extreme left-wing groups be banned too? After all, during their Antifa demonstration last Sunday in memory of Clément, they also took out their 'grief' by smashing shop windows, looting goods and destroying council property. They are as undesirable as any fascist group despite their feelings of moral superiority and 'Good' ideological convictions.
Has the actual truth been mentioned much in the msm to set the story straight? Guess...
