“Europe silences the nationalists”, dishonest Macronist propaganda?  – RT in French

The Macronist group within the European Parliament launched a poster highlighting the President of the European Fee, an icon, in response to him, of vaccine success in Europe. “Disgrace on the nationalist demagogues”, it’s written on this picture.

Renaissance, the political group of MEPs supporting the presidential majority, printed on August 31 on social networks a picture to extol the deserves of the European Union in its struggle in opposition to Covid-19. In slogan: “Vaccines: Europe silences the nationalists.” In drawings, we are able to see the President of the European Fee, Ursula von der Leyen, highlighted, halo of the celebrities of the EU, dominating the faces of Jean-Luc Mélenchon, Marine Le Pen, the Prime Minister of Hungary Viktor Orban and the top of the British authorities Boris Johnson.

In commentary, Renaissance castigates these political leaders: “Disgrace on these nationalist demagogues.” “In France, if Marine Le Pen or Jean-Luc Mélenchon had been in energy, we might have discovered ourselves in such problem that it’s virtually not possible to think about”, additionally writes the group, welcoming an EU which has “responded to the problem of vaccination” with 70% of the grownup inhabitants totally vaccinated in opposition to Covid-19.

Past the questionable facet of placing in the identical basket the rebellious chief Jean-Luc Mélenchon and the president of the Nationwide Rally Marine Le Pen – and this alongside the Hungarian conservative and the English liberal, the 2 presidential candidates of 2022 have by no means expressed an anti-vaccine place, opposite to what the poster would possibly counsel. However, they’ve criticized the methods of the State to influence folks to be vaccinated.

Hungary, one of the vaccinated international locations in Jap Europe

Admittedly, the supporting commentary insists extra on the truth that “the nationalists of all stripes accused him [l’UE] of all of the evils, of not approving the nice vaccines, of being incapable of defending the folks, of constructing “ideology” ”. Nonetheless, that is once more to neglect that if 70% of the grownup inhabitants within the EU is doubly vaccinated, there are important inequalities between the West and the East. And it’s clear that Hungary, decried by the poster, is among the japanese international locations which is doing the perfect with 64.9% of its grownup inhabitants totally vaccinated, forward of most different states. from the East of the EU reminiscent of Croatia, Poland, Lithuania or Slovenia. Additionally, based mostly on your complete inhabitants of a rustic, in response to figures disseminated by Covid tracker (utilizing statistics from Our world in information), the UK focused by macronists, shows a vaccination on August 31 full at 62.91%, forward of Germany (60.11%) or … France (round 60%).

Web customers have additionally famous sure inaccuracies on this poster. One is stunned that Macron’s assist within the European Parliament qualifies Jean-Luc Mélenchon “generally an Islamogauchist buddy of the worst spiritual obscurantists, generally a nationalist of the identical ilk as a [Marine] The pen. Frankly, we must always select. However in any case, it is grotesque ”.

One other makes a type of synthesis: “a bit pretend information + a pinch of unhealthy religion + the promotion of EU federalism + a design and a message worthy of outdated dictatorships = the right recipe for macronists”.
