France in “climate of near CIVIL WAR,” says angry French Presidential candidate Francois Fillon

59

France is seeing “a climate near civil war.”

Who said that?

President Trump?

A certain well known columnist and campaigner?

Well, in this case, it turns out it was the French Presidential candidate Francois Fillon; and to boot, the quote come from an article published in “The Local.”

You may recall, last week, that The Local was at pains to deny the existence of riots and no go zones in France.

This is what President Trump is trying to protect us from. This is the catastrophic consequence of the Muslim invasion of Europe.

At 2:45 min a skyscraper comes into view: Tour Bretagne (Brittany Tower in English) opened on November 18, 1976 is a 37-story skyscraper situated in downtown Nantes between a main thoroughfare, Cours des 50 Otages, and Place Bretagne (Brittany square). With a height of 144 meters (472 feet),[2] it dominates the skyline of the city of Nantes and is the third tallest building in France outside of Paris, after Tour Part-Dieu in Lyon and CMA CGM Tower in Marseilles.

France in ‘climate of near civil war’, says angry Fillon

As attacks mount around the election, one presidential front runner said France is seeing “a climate near civil war”.

Journalists accused of bias. Judges said to be taking orders from the president. The country in a state of “near civil war.”

This isn’t America’s bitter presidential election campaign last year, but France’s in 2017.

The latest comments from conservative Francois Fillon, who has accused the Socialist government of failing to protect candidates, underline the increasingly ugly tone of France’s campaign.

Clashes in the western city of Nantes at the weekend during a demonstration against far-right leader Marine Le Pen and attacks on buses transporting her supporters were “unacceptable,” he said on Monday.

On Sunday evening, he accused the government of “failing to create the conditions for the peaceful exercise of democracy,” accusing it of allowing “a climate of near civil war to develop in the country.

Seven police officers were injured on Saturday in Nantes including one with serious burns when anarchists and vandals began throwing rocks and firebombs during an anti-Le Pen protest.

Fillon, the former frontrunner whose bid has been thrown into turmoil by a corruption investigation, also said his campaign events were being disrupted “every day” by far-left activists.

Both Fillon and Le Pen have also attacked judicial investigations into their use of allegedly fake parliamentary aides as an attempt by outgoing Socialist President Francois Hollande to influence the election.

Fillon has described an inquiry launched in January as an “institutional coup d’etat” and has accused journalists of trying to carry out a “lynching” and an “assassination”.

Herve Le Bras, a veteran political observer and head of research at the EHESS social sciences university in Paris, said he could detect the influence of US President Donald Trump in the French campaign.

“The way that Trump has defied the justice system and attacked the media, calling them ‘fake news’, I think in a way it’s encouraging Fillon and Marine Le Pen to copy,” he told AFP.

They can see that it seems to work in the United States,” he said.

Attacks on media Fillon, a 62-year-old former prime minister, faces allegations he paid his wife for 15 years as a fake assistant, while one of Le Pen’s aides was charged last week over allegations the party defrauded the European parliament.

Both deny any wrongdoing but their attacks have repeatedly questioned the independence and neutrality of the justice system ahead of a two-stage
presidential election on April 23 and May 7.

Polls currently show independent centrist Emmanuel Macron as the most likely winner, though analysts caution against any firm forecasts after a
rollercoaster campaign and the surprises of Brexit and Trump in 2016.

Fillon was the clear frontrunner until January when newspaper Le Canard Enchaine brought his wife’s job to light.

“To imagine that investigations could have been ordered on Fillon or Marine Le Pen is completely absurd because it would be illegal,” Justice Minister Jean-Jacques Urvoas told a newspaper on Sunday.

Le Pen went ahead with her rally in Nantes on Sunday where she delivered a speech laced with criticism of how French democracy had been corrupted by the political establishment, the media and financial interests.

She attacked media groups who “sob about having lost the confidence of readers who justifiably are going on the internet to get their news,” she said.

Last week, she refused to be questioned by anti-corruption investigators, saying she would not respond to summons during the presidential campaign.

Faced with Fillon’s and Le Pen’s mounting defiance, Prime Minister Bernard Cazeneuve responded on Monday.

“In politics, especially during campaigning, you need a certain dignity, a high-mindedness, and respect for the truth,” he said during a visit to a farm show.

Urvoas went further in an interview on France 2 television, accusing Fillon of trying to divert attention away from his legal problems.

“Really, a ‘near civil war’? … Before he was talking about an ‘institutional coup d’etat’, what will he say next? ‘An extermination of the programmes’? ‘A Holocaust of the candidates’?” he said.

Fillon’s might just be taking advice from his former boss for five years, ex-president Nicolas Sarkozy.

The two men lunched together 10 days ago during which Sarkozy was reported to have encouraged Fillon to “dominate the media space: a headline-grabbing announcement every day.”

    Abuse of the legal system to attack political opponents seems to have become a standard tactic.

    The only way to rid France of these brown monsters at this point is through civil war. As can be seen they will not leave peacefully. It will take ruthless force to send the sons of Muhammed back to the desert.

      • Kittee

        Thanks Mary, I notice that too and why I remind what and when I can as the elites have actually been telling each other ( and us )beforehand their plans and what they stand for.

        Such as this one:

        He later retracted on Larry King for example
        We are supposed to believe he just made an error. However, as a Christian I would never make that ‘ error’ .No true Christian could/would ever say such!
        And certainly no candidate for POTUS can ever make such ‘ errors’.

    It is a win/win situation, the inferior french breed will be eradicated with the stupid muslim tribes likewise removed from the gene pool. After a few years of islam, the survivors will starve and die of infectious disease. Thus france will be purified of stupid.

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      The Fwench are reverting to type: drunk Gauls.

      • Mahou Shoujo

        They are becoming gauls under grave stones.

        • IzlamIsTyranny

          All of Western Europe was once united — when they were all illiterate gauls worshiping rocks and stones and the Romans slaughtered them practically at will. Your ex’s ancestors. Couldn’t you of at least married an Italian? Or Greek?

          • Mahou Shoujo

            None available at the time.

          • Mickey Emerson

            Like Greece isn’t over run as well, and
            Italy is about the same.

          • IzlamIsTyranny

            True enough, sadly enough.

        • stickler

          Gauls? Really? Did you learn that from your infantile obsession for anime? Obviously, you were never brainwashed by any education.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            You are right, I was never brainwashed by any education, after high school, university and post university, I am still capable of thinking. Do you have the gall to say you know what a Gaul is?

          • IzlamIsTyranny

            I don’t even know what language the Gauls spoke, but I know it wasn’t Fwench, German or English. Maybe they just grunted.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Gaulish or Gallic is the name given to the Celtic language that was spoken in Gaul before the Latin of the late Roman Empire became dominant in Roman Gaul. According to Julius Caesar in his Commentaries on the Gallic War, it was one of three languages in Gaul, the others being Aquitanian and Belgic. You are right, mutters, shrieks and grunts, closely related to modern french.

          • IzlamIsTyranny

            Gaelic? The same language spoken in Ireland?
            Julius Caesar beat on the Gauls mercilessly, he slaughtered tens of thousands of them.

          • Mahou Shoujo

            Only one of many, today muslims beat on the gauls, slaughtering them indiscriminately.

          • IzlamIsTyranny

            You never heard of Gauls? Do you think they were literate? They were mud hut dwelling dirt farmers and the Romans beat them down at will.

  • Pray Hard

    Just makes me want to go to France, sit in one of those quaint and romantic little sidewalk cafes, drink extremely overpriced coffee and munch a baguette, you know, with an Uzi and a few thousand rounds of ammunition beside me.

    • IzlamIsTyranny

      Why not an MP5? Or an FN P90 (and so very appropriate and fashionable in Fwance)?

    • Teresa Robison Ford

      Only one problem…they don’t allow guns. So you are a sitting duck. That’s why there are no-go zones. You have to stay in public places where the police are present if you want any kind of protection for a potential encounter. And trust me…they’re not following the rules. The have the knives and bombs…it’s just your law-abiding ass that you have to worry about.

  • felix1999

    If Le Pen doesn’t win, France is lost.

    • Mickey Emerson

      She will win the first round, but its their shadow government in Parliament that is the problem. She has a good chance though. England Brexited, have a feeling many will follow their lead.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    “The way that Trump has defied the justice system and attacked the media, calling them ‘fake news’, I think in a way it’s encouraging Fillon and Marine Le Pen to copy,” he told AFP”. So now it is considered copying when some one tells the universal truth? The lame stream media everywhere are liars, trying to cover up and maintain their control of public opinion with lies and more lies. Never trust anything in the lame stream media, even the lies are lies.

  • bob434

    All the french have to do is impose climate change regulations- taxing the snot out of people, and that will solve everything

    • Mickey Emerson

      And bring the worlds temperature down a fraction of a degree, maybe, lol.
      Just need a few trillion.

      • bob434

        or reduce the CO2 in our atmosphere that is due directly to man from 0.00136% of the atmosphere all the way down to 0.00132% after spending trillions (Yup- man’s CO2 amounts to just 0.00136% of the atmosphere- the math is 0.04% CO2 total in atmosphere- man is responsible for just 3.4% of that- so the total amount of CO2 in atmosphere due to man is just 0.00136% of the atmosphere- there is no thick blanket of CO2 enveloping the globe- keeping massive amounts of heat in- there simply isn’t enough CO2 i nthe atmosphere to trap enoug heat to move the thermo needle one iota)

  • GandalfsTrouserpress

    If the ‘Local’ is reporting the riots they must be bad.
    It’s been telling us everything is fine for a long time.

    French candidate Francois Fillon may resign shortly. Shame going to fight on but has to appear before court.

    I prefer Marine Le Pen, Francois Fillion had his chance to do something a few years back when he was France’s Prime Minister a few years back

    First they denounced Christianity and replaced it with militant secularism and atheism, then they brought muzzies by a train-load, and the effect is as it is.

  • DancerTiffy

    It’s like watching the Titanic going down.
    I’m assuming that Pamela wrote this article.
    Good job Pam on keeping the words “muslim” and “islamic” out of this literary piece. It’s so reminiscent of what we routinely see here in the Western MSM with these words expunged from any description of these events.

    But then here, in the US presidential campaign, it was mostly white marxist kids who were doing the rioting.
    Sure, there was a generous sprinkling of islamists interspersed within the crowds, but mostly white marxists.
    Same thing here in France I’m assuming.

    The international coalition of marxists rioting and going nuts as they watch it all slipping away from them.

  • GR Arnold

    France got themselves in to this as did Sweden, Germany, and Britain. The Euro policy of let your people suffer to any extent necessary but never allow private ownership of firearms for self-defense is ignorant, cowardly, and plain senseless. Sad.

      The US will have to bail them out again.

        I will both voice and vote against ANY assistance to these lame-ass countries until they pass laws allowing their citizens full rights to personally and individually keep and bear arms and to use those arms in lawful self-defense.

    The thief comes only to steal and kill. The thief is islam. Just look at the fruit islam produces it is only hatred, rubble, ashes and death. islam is misery and sadness and war. I would have loved to taken my children to see Paris but to sit at a cafe and have a croissant while smelling burning petrol is not my idea of yummy. I would just sit there and cry.

  • SFTOBEY

    French people, please don’t let Fillon deceive you into thinking that he will fight for France, its culture – or its borders. He is “leaning” to the right now; but if you elect him he will snap back to the Left in a heartbeat. Vote for Marine Le Pen if you want to save France for your children and grand-children. As the two-faced sum of the Left might say (but not mean it): “Do it for the children!”

  • john smith

    As an American I can only pray and hope Marine La Pen gets elected. Perhaps she can save France,
