Not, say, fighting against jihad terror that has made Paris tense and ugly. Hollande is essentially saying that he is going to do everything he can to ensure that France doesn’t defend itself against the advancing jihad, or cut off the refugee flow by means of which jihadis are entering France. He will make sure that his country is left a smoking ruin, a ravaged and devastated land, ready to be subjugated by its new masters. That is the legacy he is embracing.
“France’s Hollande says fight against populism is final mission,” AFP, March 27, 2017:
French President Francois Hollande said Monday the final mission of his term would be to ensure that “populism, nationalism and extremism cannot win” in the world and especially not in France.
Hollande’s term of office ends in mid-May and far-right politician Marine Le Pen is seen as one of the leading candidates to replace him.
In addition, Britain has voted to leave the European Union and the United States has elected populist President Donald Trump.
“I still have (work) to do to prevent populism, nationalism and extremism from prevailing, including in my own country,” Hollande told the prestigious Singapore Conference….
Hollande said the mission to reject populism was not just one for a president. Citizens and officials also had a responsibility to speak out.
“And as far as I am concerned, I will continue to speak as much as I can and to ensure that what I have done as president can have consequences,” he said without elaborating.
