Priorities. He isn’t making the fight against jihad his final mission. He isn’t making the fight against the rioters who are thrusting France into chaos his final mission. He isn’t making the no-go zones in France obey French law his final mission. No: he is determined to keep France on the path to suicide, making the ending of any resistance to its destruction his final mission.
And so he will be remembered as one of the destroyers of France.
“France’s Hollande says fight against populism is final mission,” AFP, March 27, 2017:
Singapore (AFP) – French President Francois Hollande said Monday the final mission of his term would be to ensure that “populism, nationalism and extremism cannot win” in the world and especially not in France.
Hollande’s term of office ends in mid-May and far-right politician Marine Le Pen is seen as one of the leading candidates to replace him.
In addition, Britain has voted to leave the European Union and the United States has elected populist President Donald Trump.
“I still have (work) to do to prevent populism, nationalism and extremism from prevailing, including in my own country,” Hollande told the prestigious Singapore Conference….
Hollande said the mission to reject populism was not just one for a president. Citizens and officials also had a responsibility to speak out.
“And as far as I am concerned, I will continue to speak as much as I can and to ensure that what I have done as president can have consequences,” he said without elaborating.
