Some may remember one of our earlier posts about a French youth movement known as Generation Identitaire. We posted a YouTube video released by the group, though it’s no longer available due to a copyright claim by Warner Brothers. Nonetheless, the group, which is demanding that France retain its culture and wants to stop the encroachment of Sharia law, was part of a broader coalition of Frenchmen who are willing to stand up and take to the streets.
In this report from CBN, there are two stories of significance. The first is the size and scope of the march. The second is that French media ignored the march, saying it was “racist”.
A patriotic march for French values and culture, and against radical Islam, was virtually blacked out by France’s politically correct media.
Over the weekend, protestors chanted against Islamic fascism and about the French victory over Arab invaders in 732 A.D. It was the first march of its kind in France.
A broad coalition of groups from across France came together because they feel they’re losing their country to radical Islam, Sharia law, and a politically correct establishment that encourages the spread of Islam.
“Sharia law is slowly being enforced in our country and we want to march here to protest that because our government is doing nothing,” one French demonstrator said.
“The French people — they want to defend their culture, their history – they are called ‘fascists,’” one woman said.
“I don’t think it’s only a problem of France. It’s a problem of Europe. It’s also a problem for the U.S.A.,” another protestor said.
Could this awakening be the silver lining around the dark cloud that was the election of far left socialist, Francois Hollande?
