France was once a great nation. But when basic measures for self-defense become stigmatized and opposed as “right-wing,” the death spiral has begun. The France of Charles Martel is but a historical memory. The France of Emmanuel Macron won’t last long.
“Macron Against Arresting and Deporting Radical Islamists,” by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, April 22, 2017:
