‘GREAT SOLDIER’: Macron Praises Nazi Collaborator
Some stories do make you wonder what would happen if a patriotic politician said the things that are said.
Emmanuel Macron is a darling of the liberal left since his Presidential victory against Marine Le Pen. However, his popularity is collapsing and he is in hot water for praising Phillipe Petain
Petain served with some distinction during World War I. He is credited with stopping German forces at the Battle of Verdun and rebuilt the French Army after assuming command in 1917.
However, he led France’s Vichy regime which collaborated with the Nazis during World War II and was sentanced to death for his crimes. Charles De Gaulle however commuted the sentance to life in prison.
Jewish groups have reacted in horror. Francis Kalifat who represents a coalition of Jewish groups said he was “shocked” by Macron’s comments: “The only thing we will remember about Petain is that he was convicted, in the name of the French people, of national indignity during his trial in 1945.”
So, I have to ask again, what would the media say if Marine Le Pen had said what Macron just said?
