Active duty French officers threaten Macron
A letter from officers “soon to be retired”

Comment: First there was a letter from semi-retired and retired officers and now from those on active duty. These would include the officers of the National Gendarmerie who are officers of the French Army even if the Departmental Gendarmerie are under the operation control of the Ministry of the Interior. In the US people call policemen “officers” regardless of rank. Here we are speaking of military people from the rank of lieutenant up and those superior in rank, captain, etc. Macron had better listen to this. It is clearly a threat. pl

    Wait until the Greens win in Germany. I think maybe there are still some Patriots left that will not tolerate the complete surrender of Germany as a leading industrial state.

    You might add that the first letter was published on April 21st, which is the 60th anniversary of the Algiers putsch of 1961. I hope our president got it loud and clear.

    120 US Generals and Admirals warn Biden that HR-1 (Democrat Voting Act) is a serious threat to our nation as well:

    Apparently the US military also thinks turning the entire US into California is a national crisis. This is what HR-1 will do. HR-1 expands fraudulent voting and ensures a permanent one party Democrat dominance and you will never be able to get out from under it. Just like California.

      I think you make a very interesting point Sir. Regardless of whether one considers HR-1 morally justified, I think you are right in your assessment. Two can Tango, and gerrymandering is an equal opportunity sport.

      I doubt this a good development. I have no idea what the domestic opposition should do to counter. I don’t think the US media is on your side.

    “Well, if those French military officers, retired and active, would simply be allowed and actively encouraged and solicited to get in touch with their gay and transgender fairy selves then maybe they wouldn’t have felt the urge to write letters to President Macroney-Pooh,” said President Pete Buttigieg to his husband and Secretary of State Chasten while puffing away on his magic mushroom hookah opium infusion in the high flying rainbow-flagged Commander In Chief’ Special Air Limp Wrist One.

    “Sorry, what’s the problem now, Petey Pie?,” answered Chasten.

      Then, are you vsaying these people are not from the far-right ranks?

      Are they only opposed to tolerance against Islam in France, or have they also anything to say about what is being unleashed through the pandemic ( i.e. more cuts like in the 2008 crisis and savage privatizations of public assets…)

      These people, have they been “vaccinated”?
      ( This is important data to me to elaborate since I find “vaccinated” people unable to leader any resistance or add for any change for the better….)


      • Pat Lang says:

        It is not question of “toleration” of Islam. It is a question of the government making concessions to militant Mulims that threaten secularism and French culture. If you are American I think you should go live among salafis.

    A French perspective.

    Don’t get carried away too quickly.

    The first two manifestos were written by retired generals and colonels. But they were almost all paper pushers. They lent their hand to the drastic reduction of credits and manpower without protesting when they were in office. Their credibility is low.

    The third manifesto is a significant one. It is the small military, -rank or non-commissioned officer-, and the common people who signed it.
    (It is also important because the military are not allowed to express their political opinions. It takes courage to overcome the reflexes of discipline. To avoid disciplinary risks, anonymity is advised).
    This capital fact brings this mood movement closer to that of the Gilets Jaunes, which is not over yet. The reasons are different but they add up. Other categories of employees are also at their wits’ end, for example the hospital staff who are so badly treated. We will see if the usual treatment – giving raises – will calm these dissatisfactions. Islamism is certainly a problem. It will take time to resolve.
    Our methods of assimilation are challenged by concentration of same people. Personally, I think that France, the small terminal cape of Eurasia and Eurafrica, has been a real melting pot for at least 1500 years. We will succeed.

    The re-election prospects of those in power in a year’s time seem to be compromised. However, the propaganda machine is very active to make public opinion believe gouvernement peoples are competent.
    The far right (“the stupid right”) is in ambush but its chances are small as usual.

    These are going to be interesting times. But don’t panic (!), the current French average age is much higher than in the past. The time for revolutions is over.

    Indeed, but in fact, it was wrote and diffused several days before, on April 14, from the site “”. The newspaper Valeurs Actuelles only copy and published it again on April 21st, with no explicit grant of the author, it seems. This is unfortunate because the government and the media have confused the date with the content of the letter to denounce a putch.

    So I went back and took a look at the wiki on the Paris Commune and see the Army entered Paris on 20 May for what it’s worth.

    • Pat Lang says:


      My only complaint about how the French Army finished off the Commune is that they did not shoot enough Communards beginning with Clemenceau.
