In the aftermath of the terrible events in Nice on Bastille Day, people are quite rightly asking why is it France that keeps being attacked? Well, first you have to look at exactly what these attacks are. One obvious thing in Paris and now Nice is the almost complete lack of footage from mobile phones and security cameras. You can call me a conspiracy theorist if you want, but the lack of footage of these events, which both occurred in very crowded places, is not theory, it’s fact. There’s lots of other things as well that point towards these events being put-up jobs, but I’m not going to get into all that now.
Next you have to look at what’s been happening in France; ie, the largest civil unrest since the French Revolution more than 200 years ago. You could say it started with the massive pension protests back in 2010, when the government raised the retirement age, and it’s been bubbling along ever since then. It kicked-off big time again in March of this year, and to begin with the mainstream media covered it. When it became apparent that these strikes and demonstrations were going to be ongoing, an almost complete media blackout came into play. The French people are not just demonstrating about the new employment laws which were forced through by President Hollande without allowing parliament a vote on it. There’s also anger about the ongoing state of emergency – which effectively suspends the rule of law in France – introduced after last November’s terror attacks in Paris. Then there’s the TTIP trade deal currently being negotiated between America and the EU, not to mention a number of other things. It can all be summed-up as a mass protest against what’s called ‘globalisation’, which is a polite term for America’s attempt to take over the world.
In the early hours of Friday morning, shortly after the Nice terror attack, president Hollande addressed the nation. He stated that France was now at war and the state of emergency, which is due to expire on 26th July, will be extended by another 3 months. There’s every indication that the state of emergency will become permanent (think about that: France under permanent martial law). Also, yesterday it was announced that France has called up 12,000 police reservists. The attack in Nice was terrible, but does it really merit such measures? or are these moves to keep the lid on civil unrest and force the neo-con agenda on the French people? (which includes racking-up the war in Syria)
This brings us to the other side of the Channel, where there’s also large scale protest against the neo-con agenda. This not only involves demonstrations and strikes (including the junior doctors, who have never gone on strike before) but also the Corbyn phenomenon and the unprecedented hate campaign against him. In recent years the frightening thing is that the mainstream media, all across the spectrum, are not only now all singing from the same neo-con hymn sheet, it’s co-ordinated propaganda.
The antithesis of the lunatic asylum that is modern day Britain could be seen last Wednesday, when Theresa May became prime minister (the 13th prime minister under the reign of Elizabeth II, and May was appointed on the 13th day of the month, if you’re superstitious). As she was making her acceptance speech outside No.10 you could clearly hear a noisy demonstration going on. As far as I’m aware none of the presstitutes commented on this, or mentioned the fact that it was DPAC (Disabled People Against Cuts) who were demonstrating; this while Theresa May was spouting the usual nonsense about David Cameron’s great social legacy, and how under her leadership Britain will become an even more fairer and inclusive place, etc, etc.
They say that Jeremy Corbyn is unelectable, but what about the Tories? Will the doctors vote for them? will the teachers? etc, etc. What about the appalling ‘austerity’ they’ve forced on the country, which the UN has declared to be in breach of international human rights obligations. As in France, the people of Britain have had enough of this nonsense, hence the Corbyn phenomenon. Since Corbyn became leader 10 months ago, the membership of the Labour Party has more than doubled, making it by far the largest political party in the UK (and in western Europe), and an opinion poll this week puts Labour 5 points ahead of the Tories. If Corbyn can survive the leadership challenge, and the completely underhand tricks the red tories are playing against him, not to mention the presstitutes spewing out a barrage of propaganda against him, what chance would he have in a general election against the most authoritarian, racist and austerity-obsessed government in British history?
Ha, you really don’t need to ask!
