Macron “Nationalism” Comment Insult On Veterans Day

President Donald Trump is in France to commemorate the one hundredth anniversary of the signing off the armistice ending World War I. French President Emmanuel Macron chose this solemn occasion to insult President Trump, the American people, and the four million American military personnel mobilized during that war. The American media and leftie elitists will wear self-satisfied smirks today. Merde sainte!

Take note that the miniature French leader was standing in front of the Arc de Triomphe when he chose to insult us. The Arc de Triomphe, according to the French website:

Wanted by Napoleon in 1806, the Arc de Triomphe was inaugurated in 1836 by French King, Louis Philippe, who dedicated it to the armies of the Revolution and the Empire. The Unknown Soldier was buried at the base of the arch in 1921. The flame of remembrance is rekindled every day at 18:30.

So, just how did the small Frenchman insult us?

Let’s go to the digital video:

He talks about men and women fighting for their country, about national greatness, about sacrifice for country, and then insults us. From The

Speaking Sunday at the Arc de Triomphe beside Trump and other world leaders, Macron decried nationalism as “a betrayal of patriotism.

Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism,” Macron said. “Nationalism is a betrayal of patriotism. By saying our interests first… we erase what a nation holds dearest, what gives it life, what gives it grace, and what is essential: its moral values.”

The snooty little leader decries nationalism, but later says that we must be worthy of those who died for us so that we could live free. For what cause did those heroes of World War I fight and die? For the right of their nations to exist as nations. For nationalism and patriotism they proudly fought. That was the first time the United States of America went into the trenches to save their Brie.

The second time that the good old US of A showed up filled with the spirit of nationalism and patriotism was, of course, World War II. Two million Americans showed up to save the French and the rest of Europe from having to learn German. America saved it all. We saved the French people, the French language, the French culture, and the French borders. Yeah, we saved their bacon.

Just before Macron blithely insulted every nationalist American, he praised World War I hero General Petain. The Washington Post reported:

French President Emmanuel Macron waded into controversy Wednesday by praising a general who helped win World War I but became a top Nazi collaborator in World War II — comments that triggered outrage among French Jews.

Marshal Philippe Petain’s name appears alongside seven other top military chiefs to be honored this Saturday in a ceremony at the Invalides monument, site of Napoleon’s tomb, to mark the centenary of the end of World War 1.

Touring battlefields ahead of a formal commemoration of the Nov. 11, 1918, armistice that ended the war, Macron said Petain was worthy of the honor for his leading role in the World War I victory.

“Marshal Petain was also a great soldier during World War I” even though he made “fatal choices during the Second World War,” Macron said in the northern town of Charleville-Mezieres.

Petain led the French army to victory in Verdun in 1916, but gained infamy and a conviction for treason for his actions as leader of Vichy France from 1940 to 1944. He is despised for his complicity in the Holocaust.

“I pardon nothing, but I erase nothing of our history,” Macron added.

You didn’t have to praise him, douche. That’s not erasing history. I reviewed a book earlier this year for Victory Girls. The book was “The Wolves at the Door”. You can read my review here. The book clearly lays out how Petain rolled over and collaborated with the Nazis. The “fatal choices” he made were not for himself but for thousands of French Jews.

From In March 1942 some 1,000 Jews were arrested and sent to the Compiègne detention camp, from where they were deported to Auschwitz. The transports took two days to arrive at their destination. Most of those who were still alive at the end of the journey were murdered. Photo credit:

Donald Trump is on his way to speak at a cemetery where 1500 Americans are buried. The elites won’t like it, but I think those who laid their lives down for freedom, for the nationalism and patriotism of the USA, kind of hope that Trump takes a quick jab at Macron. The elites will say he should rise above it. Bull merde. Nationalism isn’t about white nationalism, black nationalism, or Asian nationalism. It’s not about isolationism.

Let me leave you with this: mothers are often told to take care of themselves first, so that they may better care for their children. Nationalism is a lot like motherhood. Take care of your nation first so that you are tanned, rested, and ready to save the rest of the world.

Go team USA!

    Bad news, cheese eaters! France has been invaded AGAIN, and America could care less! There won’t be any army of American nationalists to save your sorry nation again, you bunch of surrender monkeys. It won’t be German you’ll be learning this time, but the sharia law of submission. On your knees, where you belong, Frenchie!

  • rbj says:

    I appreciate President Trump’s remarks at the cemetery. He chose to focus exclusively on the soldiers, not replying to soy-boy, which itself is a response. And no umbrella.

    Macron, like most Europeans, view the world through the lens of socialism. So to them, nationalism means national socialism, which does have a bad rep. But the alternative is international socialism, which is just as bad, but on a grander scale.

    • SDN says:

      Don’t buy Stalin’s propaganda. International was how he spelled Russian. Socialism run from Moscow is no better (or different; the descendants of Swedish Vikings ruling over the lesser Slavs) than socialism run from Berlin.

  • Alej says:

    Petain and Vichy France weren’t into either nationalism or patriotism . A decayed country.

  • s3d says:

    France gets EXACTLY what their vile Antichrist Marxist and Antichrist Islamic population deserve. These atheist and Islamic whores are serving the satanic lusts they live for. Antichrist atheists like Macron are possessed by demons literally, that is how they can be so shameless in their Satanic redefinition of terms and globalist pacifism imposing agenda. May they all burn in hell.

  • Richard Daugherty says:

    Here we have the French version of Barrack Hussein Obama Soetoro Soebarkah. What a TOTAL DISGRACE!!

  • GWB says:

    I’m going to have to agree with the Head Frog on the Petain. Much like the issues surrounding Robert E Lee, he deserves some measure of respect for what he did do well. And you can do that while also acknowledging what he did wrong. Macron was talking WW1.

    OTOH, he’s WRONG about ‘nationalism’. It demonstrates a failure to understand what really went wrong post-WW1.

  • Jim says:

    If my memory of history is correct the Froggies haven’t won many battles since Napoleon I lost in the last ”quarter” at Waterloo when the Prussian ”substitutes” under Field Marshal Gebhard von Blücher marched onto the field. The spineless capitulation of the French military in both world wars is well known to all.

    • Toni Williams says:

      Al they have is cheese and wine. And, we are probably beating them at that too.


      • Paolo Pagliaro says:

        It would be nice, if true.
        Unfortunately, French leftist philosophy reigns uncontested in your Universities and is shaping the minds of your preeminent families’ sons and daughters.
        I think conservatives underestimate the power of ideology and, in general, the importance of cultural presence in society. You should spend way more resources in building Universities and forming teachers than you do.

        Besides, France is a beautiful country, with strong people and a potentially great culture.

      • TeacherinTejas says:

        Old joke, the French only win when 1) the US does most of the fighting (American Revolution, World Wars I and II) and when not led by “French MEN.” see Napoleon, Joan of Arc.

    • GWB says:

      Capitulation in WW1? Huh?!?
      Do you even history, bro?

  • Robert Rogers says:

    When you think the French could not get any sorrier, they reach a new low. If not for us and the Russians, Macron would not have been making that speech and would be speaking German when he did talk.

    Q: How do you defend Paris?
    A: Don’t know, it has never been attempted

    • TeacherinTejas says:

      Did you see that the American flag we planted on the Moon has been bleached white by solar radiation? Great, now it looks like the French got there first.

  • Paolo Pagliaro says:

    Macron is very busy in the job of redefining words in order to demonize his political opponents and extolling his own class, the European elite cozily enthroned in Bruxelles, as the defender against far-rightism.
    I am Italian and, like so many in Europe and the USA, could not stand any more these parasitical hypocrites. He, together with his fellows, is destroying Europe because he can’t accept the evident failure of their policies: they are consumed by vanity and haughtiness.
    Another of Macron’s pearls of wisdom has been calling the overwhelming electoral victory of conservatives in Hungary “a danger for democracy”; of course, democracy in his understanding is just a one way street: his one. As with Brexit in the UK and Trump’s in the USA, nowadays the left does not want to relinquish its power.

  • Paolo Pagliaro says:

    Nationalism is the affirmation of a country’s right to be independent within its borders. Independent means: free to decide what is the best course of action, the best decision in each situation. Of course, the primary duty of a nation is the care of its own citizens, exactly like the primary duty of a family is the care of its members.
    It’s not a coincidence that the left hates so much the institution of family, since everything must be subservient to ideology. Their prefer to look at citizens as a mass of isolated persons needing the state’s protection in order to survive: this is the perfect justification for the left’s holding power by any means.
    This is also why apparently crazy ideas – like transgenderism – are defended with such vehemence: it’s a cultural fight meant (consciously or not, since it follows necessarily) to deform the people’s mind in that direction.

  • Joe says:

    Patriotism and nationalism are mutually beneficially linked because both protect and lionize the people who are the source of the cherished moral values.

    Maricon, like all post-nation globalists who read the Camp of the Saints as an instruction manual, inverts reality for a feelgood lie. He believes race as reflected through national borders and immigration controls is irrelevant to morality, which exists in the ether separate and distinct from the minds of different human groups. The truth is that the race comes first, the moral values follow. I wonder if Maricon seriously believes France’s moral values would survive the replacement of the native French with Pakistanis, Eritreans, Nigerians, Moroccans? If he does, then he is worse than a fool. He is an annihilationist.

    • GWB says:

      The truth is that the race comes first, the moral values follow.
      Ummm, no.

      • Joe says:

        You could argue it on an individual level, but on a nation-state level, it absolutely is. Race and culture are joined at the hip. Morals are downstream of culture.
