The French are repeating the trick of using general rules to target Muslims, so lobbying Teachers not to teach a particular lesson could become an expulsion(!) offence. So much for all citizens being equal.
More concerning is a law against recording/photographing police officers, which will become a catch all excuse to take out photographers and journalists at demonstrations.
Let’s not forget the Republics bloody recent past:
In some ways, the popularity of the Front National (10 million votes in the run-off, 1/3 of those who voted in the second round – notably, it looks like the 7 million votes in the first round for the left candidate of France Insoumise just didn’t turn up in the second round).
To tell the truth it’s a change to see a government face down the Islamists instead of rolling over and trying to present criticism of Islam as a religion as “islamophobia”. The BBC even refers to its founder as “the Prophet Mohammed” even though he was only a religious leader, merchant and warlord. I bet they don’t do that in France.
