We’ve posted several reports about the controversy over Muslim street prayers in Clichy-la-Garenne, a suburb of Paris. The story was unusual, because elected leaders, in full mayoral regalia, were among the demonstrators who gathered during prayer time to protest the blatant violation of the laws on laïcité.
Many people have been asking: “If street prayers are illegal, why don’t the police shut them down?” Oz-Rita has translated a piece about Clichy by Christine Tasin, the director of Résistance Républicaine (the embedded video was also translated and subtitled by Rita), that sheds some light on why the prayers continue unmolested.
Note: “facho” is a slangy abbreviation for “fascist” in French:
The street prayers in Clichy are a scandal. A scandal that lasts. A scandal of the State. Why does Macron’s State not end it? Easy, water cannons exist, right?
I remember the Prefect of Côtes d’Armor who had banned one of our demonstrations taking out the water cannons in case our people would not disperse.
Easy, when facing French citizens who respect the law. Unthinkable when facing Muslims who have trampled the law every week for 8 months. Unthinkable or rather… Macron does not want to. Why ?
Just look at the pictures of what happened yesterday in Clichy to see the second scandal, the worst without a doubt. Certainly it’s good to see these elected sing the Marseillaise against Muslims, but what we are witnessing is a frightful spectacle [translation and subtitling by Oz-Rita]:
Muslims, foreigners probably for a large part — and mainly foreigners in Clichy, according to the mosque and the Mayor — perform, in an obscene and provocative way, their prayer under the eyes of all, in the public space, imperturbable, while a few meters away, French citizens are tearing themselves apart…
…And it is they who are the spectacle, they are the ones who interest the journalists. The Muslim problem no longer exists in Clichy, thanks to Macron, it has become a Franco-French problem, the leftists against the Fachos. Not the leftists against the patriots, no, against the fachos. Because what will remain of this video, it is the cry of the little useful idiot: fachos!
Macron lets the leftists and other antifas defend them (the muslims).
They do not even need to get their hands dirty.
Mélenchon’s (Leader of the extreme Left faction in the French Parliament) militia do the job for them, attack the patriots, threaten them, insult them.
Why does Macron deliberately let the situation degenerate for months, if not for that? To generate popular reactions and play with them?
Elected officials came to support the Mayor of Clichy? Fachos! And there must be, among them, members of the FN, re-fachos! Doubly fachos!
One might think that Macron, not daring to send the troops to Clichy, lets the mayonnaise rise, is letting the French take on the problem and solve it, replacing the police and the army.
Ready to send in, at dawn, his militia equipped with bullet-proof vests break down the door of anti-prayers-in-the-street but otherwise peaceful pensioners at 6 am to search their home.
It is clear that Macron, sitting on a pressure cooker that threatens to explode every day now, seeks to let explode… patriots, the resistance in order to have reasons to record, ban, imprison, convict them…
In short, we get it: Muslims will be used more and more by Macron to justify an intense crackdown against opponents of Islam and immigration.
The guy wants to scare, wants to quash, wants to divert the river flowing between Muslims and non-Muslims, so that this river separates the leftists from patriots, so that, if there were to be a war, it would take place between French and French, a real good civil war because of the Muslims and which would benefit them, but for which they would not be considered responsible.
Clever. Nothing surprising for Monsieur Manipulations who is at the Elysée.
Will the French fall into the trap or will they rebound?
