As the French are celebrating their Independence Day today Wednesday 14 July, will the President finally give a speech to address the real problems in the country of human rights?
Macron’s presidential term in office has been quite a turmoil, from the weekly Yellow Vest protest that lasted almost 2 years, the resignations of his ministers, the reshuffling of his cabinet, the pandemic, and the economic-financial crisis. He hasn’t been the most likeable President in France where recently he was slapped in the face by his fellow citizen.
There is a coming 2022 Presidential Election and Macron and his party LaRem (La Republique En Marche/ The Marching Republic) are doing all that it takes to get reelected. As his image is getting worse and his popularity is declining by the day, Macron and his party are trying their last desperate move to win the heart of the French people by embracing YouTube’s influencers.
Macron and his political party never really address the concerns of French citizens, they refused to talk with the student union’s representatives, and if they meet with the students’ representative it’s only to sell the curriculum program and they do it in secrecy and behind close door.
By using influencers for their election campaign and propaganda to win votes from the young French, instead of explaining clearly to the people the government programs if they get reelected, Macron and LaRem are using marketing propaganda as if the governmental program is merchandise sold or promoted through influencers on the social media. Government programs such as economical and political plans for the country are not some products or brands that use marketing to entice people to buy those products or brands. There is a moral standard on what is considered ethical when promoting the presidency, political party, and policies. Macron and LaRem have shown that they have breached the ethical standards and applying the Machiavellian methods in achieving their goals.
Our elected government and political parties have a moral obligation and responsibility towards the people. Their policies should have the people’s best interests in mind and we know very well that our government rarely work for the good of its people but working closely with the oligarchs, the corporations, the mainstream media, and the schools to maintain the status quo that only benefits the corporations while plundering the people and the world.
In our current situation, and after Macron’s speech on Monday about obligatory vaccination for health workers and the requirement of pass sanitaire (sanitary pass as proof that you have been vaccinated completely) to enter a restaurant, shopping center, cafe, cinema, etc, without any transparency on the pandemic and its variant virus, Macron and the French government have shown that they are siding with the Big Pharma and the elites and not siding with the French people in general. The more they push vaccination without transparency of information and the proof that those vaccines are safe for the people, the more people get more suspicious of this whole pandemic and their government. Our history is full of vaccines gone wrong, where people died or crippled for life because of vaccines or medications but rarely the Big Pharma get sanction or go to jail for it. Just like the 2008 financial crisis, no banker go to jail, and instead the banks got enriched.
Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi is interviewed to discuss his book “Corona False Alarm? Facts and Figures” that he co-authored with Dr. Karina Reiss. Dr. Bhakdi explains the strange situations regarding the pandemic and that vaccin is not effective for airborn disease such as influenza and covid-19.
Macron is trying to push out the image of “Cool President” by using YouTubers such as McFly and Carlito to win votes from the young French people where the abstention rate is high.
Video of Macron with the YouTubers McFly and Carlito “Anecdote Contest featuring French President Macron.” French political farce, stupidity and what the French say n’importe quoi (whatever) at their highest level.
It’s not just President Macron with the influencers, but members of his cabinet are also parading themselves with the influencers as if Macron’s presidency is some kind of merchandise or goods that are sold through marketing advertisers such as the social media influencers. Roles in government are not assigned based on competencies and merits. It is just one step away for Macron and his government from recruiting influencers as members of his cabinet. Macron and LaRem are appearing more and more like a political farce by the day as he makes his term in office a reality show and a comedy.
