French Fascism: Woman Faces 10 Years for Calling Macron ‘Garbage’ on Social Media

Daily Mail

A woman has been arrested in France and faces a criminal trial for posting a slogan referring to President Emmanuel Macron as ‘garbage’ on social media.

The 50-year-old, who asked to be referred to by her first name of Valerie, was placed in police custody for the alleged offence.

She is accused of ‘publicly insulting’ the French President, who has witnessed millions take to the streets in protest to his controversial move to raise the retirement age from 62 to 64 without a parliamentary vote.

Accusing the president of forcing striking binmen to leave piles of rubbish around her home in Saint-Omer, close to the northern English Channel coast, Valerie posted a picture of graffiti saying ‘Macron Garbage’ on Facebook.

This led to three officers knocking on her door last Friday, and then taking her to a police station, where she was briefly locked up.

‘I asked them if it was a joke,’ Valerie told the Voix du Nord (Voice of the North) newspaper. ‘It’s the first time I’ve been arrested.’

The ‘Macron Garbage’ graffiti was outside a waste disposal depot in nearby Arques, and she had simply ‘been photographed in front of it, smiling,’ she said.

Referring at the time to an upcoming television address by Macron, Valerie also wrote on Facebook: ‘The garbage will talk tomorrow at 1 p.m.., adding: ‘We also find the garbage on TV’.

Valerie is linked to the Yellow Vests anti-Macron movement which brought chaos to France from 2018, but she denies being a troublemaker.

‘I’m an activist for social justice,’ she said. ‘They want to make an example of me. I am not public enemy number one.

‘This is totally unfair. We are going through a period when intimidation is strong, and activists are threatened.’

Human rights laws have complained about police violence and arbitrary arrests, as Macron sends paramilitary units on to the streets to try and quell the violence.

Prosecutors and the Pas-de-Calais prefecture confirmed that an investigation had been opened into Valerie’s Facebook post.

A statement from the prefecture said it has been ‘opened following a complaint filed by the sub-prefect of Saint-Omer with the police station after he became aware of offensive photos and publications targeting the President of the Republic on social media networks’.

Valerie will be tried at the Saint-Omer criminal court on June 20 for ‘insults conveyed by word writing, image or means of electronic communication’ and faces a fine equivalent to around £10,000.

 

Freedom of speech is under assault everywhere.

The U.K.  has the same jackbooted response to political and social dissent.

Dutch populist politician Geert Wilders stood trial for criticizing Islamofascism.

Here in America, the leftwing owned and operated social media is busy creating a global censorship database and a process to label political opponents “hate agents”.

Every three-letter weaponized agency in the Swamp dictated which social media accounts to ban and posts to censor.  They teamed up with Big Tech to control information, free speech, and debate on social media. The Dems did their part, as well.

Facebook engages in censorship and outright banning of conservative users and sites.

Twitter was just as bad. An undercover video from Project Veritas showed Twitter employees bragging on their censorship skills against conservatives.

Microsoft announced it will ban accounts that utilize “offensive language.” In other words, whatever Silicon Valley deems “offensive”.

During the Obama regime, Former AG Loretta Lynch declared a fatwa against what she deemed as “anti-Islamic hate speech”, and the Feds spent nearly $1 million to create an online database that will track “misinformation” and ‘hate speech’ on Twitter.

The hag from San Francisco, aka Nancy Pelosi, thinks your freedom of speech should be curtailed. And she’s not the only one.  Freedom of speech is an exclusive right reserved by Dems, according to leftie New Hampshire legislator, Cynthia Chase. She actually wants to pass a law that “will restrict the ‘freedoms’ that they (conservatives) think they will find here.” Her sentiment is shared by John (band-aid wound) Kerry, Paul KrugmanJay Rockefeller and Sheila Jackson-Lee.
It’s incredible but not surprising how the unhinged moonbats in the Democratic party want to censor everyone but themselves.

Internet prankster Douglass Mackey was convicted for posting a meme on Twitter in 2016, jokingly encouraging supporters of Hillary Clinton to vote by text. The goons at the Department of Justice alleged that this constituted ‘election interference’, despite being unable to provide evidence that anyone was deceived by the meme. But it’s okay when the shitlibs do it. Anyone who really believes that you can text a vote for an election has a shit factory for a brain and shouldn’t be allowed to vote or breed.

The only speech acceptable on leftwing-saturated college campuses is the rhetoric ordained by academic intelligentsia and the radical student body.  And Antifa.

We expect this kind of shit out of communist totalitarian regimes like China, not Western countries, where people expect basic freedoms and the right to voice opinions without being silenced.
