French generals accuse Macron of treason over UN Migration Compact

    Signed by 164 nations on Monday, including France, the Compact supports unlimited migration and open borders by focusing on the “human rights” of migrants while any criticism of mass migration will be treated as “hate speech”.

    Ten generals signed the open letter written by General Antoine Martinez. The signatories include top level figures, such as an admiral, a colonel, as well as the former French Minister of Defense Charles Millon. They are from the network of the Volontaires pour la France (VPF)

    The generals warned Macron that the deal will mean less sovereignty for France, providing yet another reason for “an already battered people” to “revolt”.

    They accuse Macron of being “guilty of a denial of democracy or treason against the nation” for signing the Compact without allowing a public debate on the issue, or consulting the French electorate.

    “The French state is late in coming to realize the impossibility of integrating too many people, in addition to totally different cultures, who have regrouped in the last forty years in areas that no longer submit to the laws of the Republic,” the letter continues, adding that mass immigration has erased France’s “civilizational landmarks”.

    President Macron’s approval rating fell to the lowest ever, with 18 percent after he announced fuel tax hikes and support for mass immigration. Martinez tweeted that “France is desperately looking for a president”.

    “One again, the French have been left out of a decision that will change the face of our country like never before,” tweeted Marine Le Pen, leader of the National Rally. “What the contemptuous oligarchs have done will be undone by the French people,” Le Pen added.

    Eric Ciotti, a Les Républicains MP who wrote a letter to the president’s office, signed by 55 party MPs, asking to not sign the pact, and called the adoption a “democratic scandal”. He urged a parliamentary debate since the Compact would “eventually remove prerogatives of sovereignty”.

    According to conservative British MEP Janice Atkinson, the UN Compact will result in Europe being flooded by 59 million new migrants within the next 6 years.

    Atkinson meanwhile pointed out that the Compact could lead to hate speech laws that make it illegal to use the term “illegal migrants,” replacing it instead with “irregular migrants”. She said the deal would lead to European countries having their “culture and identity crushed” and urged countries not to sign the “deeply damaging” document.

    “It will be illegal not to use their prescribed language,” Atkinson underscored, She said European citizens could “say goodbye to your democracy and your way of life” if the Compact was implemented.

    The full letter from the French generals has been translated from the original French.

    Mister President,

    You are about to sign the “Global Compact on Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration” on 10 and 11 December, which establishes a genuine right to migration. It may impose itself on our national legislation through pre-existing treaties or the principle of common responsibility set out in this pact.

    It seems to us that the only sovereignty that will remain with France will consist in freely setting the way in which the objectives of the pact will have to be implemented. You can not give up this new part of the national sovereignty without a public debate whereas 80% of the French population considers that it is necessary to stop or regulate drastically the immigration. By deciding alone to sign this pact, you would add an additional reason for revolt to the anger of an already battered people. You would be guilty of a denial of democracy or treason against the nation.

    In addition, the finances of our country are drained and our debt is growing. You can not take the risk of an expensive call for air migration without first showing that you will not have to resort to more taxes to meet the objectives of the pact. On the other hand, you must be able, in terms of security, to curb the consequences linked to the arrival of extra-European populations. Finally, you can not ignore that the very essence of politics is to ensure security on the outside and harmony within. However, this concord can be obtained only if it maintains a certain internal coherence of the society alone capable of allowing to want to do together, which becomes more and more problematic today.

    In fact, the French state is late in coming to realize the impossibility of integrating too many people, in addition to totally different cultures, who have regrouped in the last forty years in areas that no longer submit to the laws of the Republic.

    You can not decide alone to erase our civilizational landmarks and deprive us of our carnal homeland.

    We therefore ask you to defer the signing of this pact and call by referendum the French to vote on this document. You are accountable to the French of your actions. Your election is not a blank.

    We support the initiative of General MARTINEZ against the signature of this pact which must be adopted by the Member States of the UN at the Intergovernmental Conference of Marrakech.

          That’s a nice sentiment — and just maybe, correct –

      Thank you Europe for making me appreciate my dwindling rights, immunities, privledges and freedoms and soon to be gone advantages I once had as an American . To hell with the globalist deep state traitor scum who are destroying civilization.

      Macron is finished. Let France be the first country to throw of the United Nations shackles.

        Eastern Europe has been thumbing their nose at the EU and UN for quite some time.Let’s not forget Brexit and the elections in Italy and Austria…the bloom is off the globalist rose.

      164 countries have been duped into signing! WTF!!

    • Rusty Fender

      The only way they can get rid of Macron is if he resigns. It’s French law.. Unless the people storm the palace and take him hostage. He has a helicopter on standby for his escape.

      Trudeau did the exact same thing to Canada. They need to force him out. He will ruin Canada, you won’t even be able to go there anymore.

      • drattastic

        Canadians are too polite to stand up for themselves…They’d rather be the victims of genocide….

        In America most are too apathetic or ignorant to stop the evil left.

    • Skywolf

      Arrest him boys, use the military! Put Marine LePen in charge!!!!!!!!

    • drattastic

      This shot across the bow by these generals(Admiral) coupled with the mood of the French people is going to spell the end of the globalist cabal in France,violently if necessary.

      With any luck this will further inflame anti-globalist sentiment in Europe…Look to Eastern Europe ,they know the truth the West is only now starting to realize.

      Sacre bleu – Holy Macaroni,say it ain’t so! Jupiter, a traitor, oh yeah! It is obvious the people have had enough of this proud little weasel; to cast him away in the same manner as they did, with Marie Antoinette and old King Louis.
