Dozens of MPs received death threats

Three months before the parliamentary and presidential elections, Macron is threatening unvaccinated citizens with his street vocabulary; Prime Minister Castex assures that citizens with a vaccination passport – even though they are infected – will be able to get on the train, while unvaccinated people – even though they are not infected – will be forbidden to do so!

Although in France only 4% of the total population of 67 million refuse to be vaccinated, it is becoming increasingly obvious that radical political elements of various orientations have joined the columns of those protesting against vaccination and the introduction of a vaccination passport.

The Ministry of the Interior announced that since January 1, 60 democratically elected representatives of the people (MPs, senators, presidents of municipalities and local self-governments, etc.) have received anonymous death threats.

Politicians make life difficult

As an example, the media reports that Yaël Braun-Pivet, a member of the ruling Macron party, the majority in parliament, and chair of the parliamentary legislative committee, received a threatening message these days: “Flames – always watch well while you sleep around you. Your scum will also get yours. “

Another member of the majority group in parliament has been under police escort since he took part in the debate on the vaccination passport: “I seriously think I’m cutting off your head,” was the message he received.

Just three months before the presidential and parliamentary elections in France, the epidemic has become a political issue that contributes to the general bad mood. Thus, the MP of the extreme right-wing orientation, Guillaume Peltie, warned that his colleagues were also responsible for the threats to their colleagues.

This was an allusion to a recent statement by French President Emanuel Macron, who said in an interview that he would do as much as he could to complicate the lives of unvaccinated citizens, using a vulgar expression that is not for journalistic citation and shocked the public.

The question was whether it was not the job of the President of the Republic to protect the letter of the constitution and work in the interest of all citizens instead of just some citizens? This is all the more so because 40% of the unvaccinated are not “anti-vaccines” but people who live in remote areas and vaccination is not available to them.

Sources and media close to Macron are now trying to mitigate the effect of the president’s rhetoric, claiming that it is a sign of determination and spontaneity.

Mandatory vaccination loses its meaning?

The new law on the vaccine passport has already been passed in the Parliament, but in order for it to enter into force, it must be confirmed by the Senate.

When the law on the vaccine passport comes into force, it will no longer be enough for citizens to confirm that they are uninfected so that they can move freely. Everyone will have to be vaccinated or they will actually be forced into isolation.

It is, in fact, a mandatory vaccination that is not – only formally, because citizens will still have to sign to be vaccinated voluntarily.

The fact that the omicron strain is infected and properly vaccinated, as well as that the infection with this strain does not increase the number of hospital admissions – do not help Macron’s strategy of continuing mass vaccination.

A spokesman for the French government, Gabriel Atal, confirmed yesterday that the epidemic of the omicron strain was “a wave that is impossible to stop”. He stated that out of the total number of infected people, nine tenths have the Omicron strain.

“The delta strain is still sticking” and it infected 65% of the patients who were admitted to the intensive care unit and whose condition became complicated.

France is slowly sinking deeper into an atmosphere of chaos intensified by pre-election – sometimes hysterical – statements like Macron’s about making life difficult for unvaccinated citizens.

The government has obliged companies to reintroduce online work wherever possible at least three days a week. Trains and other transport lines are temporarily suspended either because staff are infected or because they are completely unprofitable due to a reduction in the number of passengers working from home.

Everyone on the edge of their nerves

Today, more than two thirds of primary and secondary school teachers will strike, who can no longer withstand the pressure and daily changes in the rules of the increasingly hated Minister of Education, whose resignation they are demanding.

In addition to the teacher, the students’ parents are also upset. They are required to test children for three consecutive days before bringing them to school if a positive case is detected in the classroom. If a child is infected, they need to figure out where to leave it and to whom.

Teachers also have to be constantly tested.

Long queues can be seen in front of laboratories and pharmacies, and everyone is on the verge of nerves, especially since they do not see the meaning of testing rules, because the omicron strain in a huge number of cases causes something that looks like a weaker flu.

At the same time, the government’s previous formula that unvaccinated citizens are to blame for spreading the infection is no longer convincing because it is obvious that vaccinated people also transmit the infection. In addition, the vaccine does not prevent infection, although it is generally accepted to protect against more severe forms of the disease.

Despite everything, the French government remains with the strategy of virtually obligatory vaccination with a vaccination passport and does not pay attention to the information that Spain has declared the fourth dose optional or that Israel has abolished the fourth dose.

Things are so complicated that the Prime Minister of France, Jean Castex, got involved in his own rhetoric these days during an interview. Answering the question of the journalists, he said that, after the new law enters into force, a citizen who has a vaccination passport and is infected will be able to enter the train. In return, entering the same train will be forbidden to a citizen who does not have a vaccination passport and is NOT infected.
