ER Editor: To the best of our knowledge, around 35% of Europeans generally are refusing to take any Covid ‘vaccine’ whatever. This is clearly not a ‘small minority’ that Macron refers to below. And France is typically one of the more vaccine hesitant countries on a normal day.
We issue an MSM alert for RT, which never fails to choose pointless reporting by the likes of the Guardian.
Florian Philippot, leader of The Patriots, had this to say on Twitter today:
Translation: – In 2016 #Macron opposed the loss of nationality for terrorist bombers and murderers.
– Yesterday he considered millions of his compatriots, honest people, “no longer citizens”.
This guy is irresponsible and dangerous!
We remind readers that no French leaders, EXCEPT FOR PHILIPPOT, have really put their money where their mouths are in defense of a population hostage to a tyrannical government for most of two whole years. Le Pen and Melenchon can pipe up now because April elections are approaching. They’re been mostly useless, otherwise.

Macron vows to ‘piss off’ the unvaxxed into submission
The head of state outlined an unconventional strategy, saying the French government is intentionally making life unbearable for the unvaccinated to convince them to receive the jab
French President Emmanuel Macron has suggested that deliberately ‘pissing off’ the unvaccinated will persuade more citizens to take their Covid-19 shots, saying he is doing all he can to eliminate vax skeptics from public life.
During a lengthy sit-down with the Le Parisien newspaper on Tuesday, Macron said his goal is to make life as difficult as possible for the unvaccinated, hoping that outrage among the group will somehow prompt more people to get immunized.
“I am not about pissing off the French people. But as for the non-vaccinated, I really want to piss them off. And we will continue to do this, to the end. This is the strategy,” the president said, adding that only a “small minority” are still “resisting.”
“How do we reduce that minority? We reduce it – sorry for the expression – by pissing them off even more,” he went on, saying his administration is “putting pressure on the unvaccinated by limiting, as much as possible, their access to activities in social life.”
According to data compiled by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control, just over 73% of France’s population has received two vaccine doses, leaving millions of residents in the “minority” slammed by the president.
Though Macron offered assurance that authorities would not “forcibly” immunize or imprison the unvaccinated, his comments come as French lawmakers debate whether to tighten the country’s Covid restrictions to allow only the fully vaccinated to enter a long list of public spaces. Currently, in addition to proof of the shot, residents can also provide a negative coronavirus test to gain entry to the establishments in question, an exemption Macron has called to close.
Last month, the government also further escalated the restrictions by requiring citizens to receive a booster shot within three months of their second dose, warning that those who fail to do so will no longer be considered “fully vaccinated” under its health passport system.
While France first imposed the passports last summer, it has apparently done little to stem the country’s greatest spike in infections yet, which kicked off in November, likely fueled by the more transmissible Omicron variant. Despite skyrocketing case numbers, recent polling suggests that many citizens still believe the passes can bring the pandemic to an end, according to The Guardian. (ER: This is completely rubbish as far as we’re aware.)
Macron’s interview segment was denounced by critics across the French political spectrum, with the leader of the socialist France Insoumise party, Jean-Luc Melenchon, calling his remarks “appalling” while arguing health passes amount to “collective punishment against individual liberties.” Marine Le Pen of the right-wing National Rally party similarly stated that Macon is seeking to turn the unvaccinated into “second-class citizens,” while conservative Senator Bruno Retailleau said “No health emergency justifies such words.”
