After video emerged of Parisians having to show their vaccine passport papers to police in order to sit outside a cafe, President Macron asserted that the system protected people’s “freedom.”

Yes, really.

As we highlighted yesterday, footage showed uniformed French police patrolling cafes and restaurants demanding proof of vaccination.

Those unable or unwilling to show their papers face massive fines, while business owners could even go to prison if they refuse to enforce the system.

Yes, really.

As we highlighted yesterday, footage showed uniformed French police patrolling cafes and restaurants demanding proof of vaccination.

Those unable or unwilling to show their papers face massive fines, while business owners could even go to prison if they refuse to enforce the system.

However, the new program may end up putting a lot of people out of business given the multitude of images that showed normally busy cafes and restaurants all but empty.

Ignoring the threat of legal action, half of the establishments canvassed by Reuters said they were refusing to enforce the checks.

Despite the fact that the French haven’t experienced such an intense ‘papers please’ society since the Nazi occupation, President Macron insisted that vaccine passports were about protecting people’s “freedom”.

“It’s about citizenship. Freedom only exists if the freedom of everyone is protected,” Macron said, adding, “it’s worth nothing if by exercising our freedom we contaminate our brother, neighbor, friend, parents, or someone we have come across at an event, Then freedom becomes irresponsibility.”

However, Julien Odoul of the right-leaning Rassemblement National slammed the French government, asserting, “The constitutional council has approved a two-tier society where there are two categories of citizens who don’t have the same rights, depending on their vaccine status.”

“This is Macron’s society and one that we condemn and reject. The principles of liberty and equality are sacred,” he added.

Leftist Jean-Luc Mélenchon agreed with Odoul, describing the system as “absurd, unfair and authoritarian.”

Having been initially rolled out for anyone wishing to visit a bar, restaurant, cafe, cinema or use intercity trains, the vaccine passports will be extended on August 30 to include anyone who works in a job that involves interaction with the public.

France has fallen.

His grandfather said “jawohl!” To his grandmother.
She didn’t object to it either.

With freedoms come responsibilities, such as giving up your freedoms.

I have a picture of my father, standing under the Arc de Triomphe… After Germany surrendered. He went from being a 22 year old N. Philly Street punk to a hardened airborne combat veteran with two purple hearts.

I guess it turned out to be for nothing after all… I’m glad he’s not here to see this bullshit.

Just think, close to ten thousand GIs are still buried in France so this cuck can chirp about nonsense kissing the dead azz of Hitler.

The French people need to roll out the trumbles and oil the guillotines again. Waving flags and signs isn’t doing the job.

All any of us can do is, like your father, fight to maintain the free Republic of the United States. My father was seriously injured fighting in the Philippines and had a plate in his head. Like millions of others he did what he could to preserve America as long as he could, as your father did. As President Reagan said, there is no inheritance passed on to the future and the freedom may die in the next generation.

Let’s hope we can work to save our nation before it’s too late, whatever the cost to our enemies the Dems and BLM.

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
—President Ronald Reagan

An excellent depiction of the only legitimate contribution to the conservative lexicon by Jonah Goldberg.
