ok Macron's recent speech on Africa is pretty convincing that he's a POS. Still better than Le Pen, but.

Brand new Macron, same old colonialism

Quote
France's newly elected president, Emmanuel Macron, when asked in a press conference at the G20 summit in Hamburg why there was no Marshall plan for Africa, explained that Africa had "civilisational" problems. He added that part of the challenge facing the continent was the countries that "still have seven to eight children per woman".

lol

Mr Macron, France's youngest leader since Napoleon, is pushing through controversial plans to strip away workers' rights and labour market regulations.

. . .

The early months of the president's administration have also been tarnished with allegations of financial irregularities among members of his government, as well as planned cuts to housing support for people on low-incomes.

oh

Guapo needs to get over the new baby euphoria and get back in here. I need his odds on whether or not Macron's win will lead to a greater chance of LePen winning next time around, or preferably a Melenchon.

There are several localized Hegelian maelstroms in the world and France is one of them. Again.

Do we all have to live in interesting times?

The government also launched the labor reforms that were central to Macron's campaign promise to boost France's lagging economy through pro-free market policies. Changes would include capping the potential financial penalties for companies sued for firing employees and giving businesses greater leeway to set workplace rules instead of relying on collective bargaining agreements.

What do you expect from a former Rothschild guy? Are people really surprised that Macron is immediately moving against labor?

Quote
Labor unions and France's far-left parties are fighting the reforms, saying they would weaken hard-won worker protections. Critics also resent the way Macron is trying to speed their approval. The government is invoking a special procedure to avoid a lengthy debate in parliament.

Daniel Fasquelle, a lawmaker from the conservative The Republicans party denounced Macron for what he called the "will to weaken all opposition" and for refusing to give interviews. Except for carefully choreographed photo opportunities, the president has distanced himself from the media. He canceled the traditional Bastille Day television interview.

Good god, they've basically elected a Trump/McConnell hybrid.

Probably, and I'm sure the establishment and their media will find a way to blame it on Melenchon and the socialists.

Emmanuel Macron's appeal has already worn thin

Quote
His victory marked an abrupt turning point. Gone were the chummy interviews with journalists and the down-to-earth friendliness of the campaign trail - President Macron's inauguration was marked by an icy, authoritative look that was here to stay.

This new image is what Macron himself has described as the "Jupiter" model. Keen to mark himself out from his predecessor François Hollande (who wanted to be seen as a "normal president"), Macron's communication team opted for Jupiter, the Roman sky god, as the symbol of the new president's style: all-powerful, aloof, removed from the daily cut-and-thrust of politics.

The aim, according to the president himself, is none other than to found "a new form of democratic authority" based on a "universe of symbols" that can stand in for France's traumatic loss of a monarchic head of state.

lol my fucking god.

Key messages are diffused via carefully staged set-pieces in which Macron refuses to answer any journalistic questions outside the topic of the day - which is, of course, the topic of his choice. Access to the Élysée and interviews are meted out sparingly.

this reminds me a lot of reading an article by a russian journalist of what putin's press conferences are like, warning that this is what trump could do to the US political press.

Trump doesn't have the self-control to do that.

A competent fascist elected in 8 or 12 years could pull it off, though.
