Macron Government Ignores Warning, Announces 20 French Generals Who Warned of “Civil War” Over Leftist and Islamist Radicalization Will Be Punished

Last Wednesday 20 French generals warned the Macron government of an impending “Civil War” due to leftist and islamist radicalization.

20 French generals, around a hundred senior officers and more than a thousand other soldiers signed an appeal for a return honor and duty within the political class.

A copy of their letter was published by Valeurs.

But rather than heeding their warning, President Macron announced the generals and soldiers will be punished.

The Daily Mail reported:

Emmanuel Macron has threatened to punish generals who signed an open letter warning that the country is heading for ‘civil war’ because of radical Islam.

Twenty retired generals, as well as several serving soldiers, signed the letter which warned that failure to act against the ‘suburban hordes’ – a reference to the predominantly immigrant population of the housing estates which surround French cities – will lead to deaths ‘in the thousands.’

The government strongly condemned the letter, which was published on the 60th anniversary of a failed coup d’etat by generals opposed to France granting independence to Algeria.

‘These are unacceptable actions,’ Defence Minister Florence Parly said Monday, adding that serving military members had flouted a law requiring them to remain politically neutral.

‘There will be consequences, naturally,’ Parly said, adding that she had instructed the army chief of staff to discipline them.

To speak out against the dangers of Islamic radicalism is forbidden by French elites.

Around 1,500 soldiers and retired generals signed the letter.
The elites called it a coup attempt.
