France and its President: Messiah, Martyr, Macron

In a television Interview on the national holiday, was addressed to the French President, Macron now on the fierce dislike, the beats to meet him. "I did what I had suggested," said Macron and referred to the spectacular reforms, which were considered to be "impossible", and where his predecessors had failed: "France is a country that is afraid and no confidence in himself." The President did not hesitate to use the term, the two interviewers had avoided: hatred. "I may not have let something appear, what I am," he said. In the Lockdown Macron had promised to "reinvent itself".

All the presidents of the Fifth Republic have the pleasure of the French king's murder to feel. Against Emmanuel Macron, the hatred reached new dimensions. In January of this year, he had to be from the police out of a Theater after a visitor had mobilised via Twitter to the protesters. Two weeks later, his favorite restaurant, "La Rotonde was put" in the fire of alleged offenders: an actor. In a torchlight procession against the pension reform rods were worn with spitted Macron-skulls. "Louis XVI was beheaded. We could start moving again", threatening the "Natural France" by Jean-Luc Mélenchon.

The Left hate him especially. For Jean-Luc Mélenchon Macron is a "Bandit". The party President of the radical socialists berated two renegades, who settled for the price of a Ministerial portfolio to buy, as "alcoholics anonymous in hangover mood". Martine Aubry, which gave the country 35-hour work week, says: "Macron loves people, he loves the money."

And there is the hatred of the Intellectual. The philosopher Robert Redeker calls the President "Corona-Minus". Emmanuel Todd is holding him for "idiot or mentally ill" and wants to bring him because of the failure of the state to prison: "There must be an end to impunity. We need to make an example. The French society needs a Moral. Otherwise, the next stage of the civilized class will be a fight. But a civil war.“
