France – Domestic Press, Le Pen All Slam Macron Over ‘Gaul’ Gaffe (Video)

||| @saadsalman719.png |||

French President Macron thought he was making a funny joke two days ago whilst visiting Denmark. In a speech to business leaders in Copenhagen. Mr Macron praised the ‘Lutheran’ Danes whilst damning the ‘Gaullist’ French for their resistance to change, referring to the difficulty he faces pushing through labour reforms at home.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">In <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Mumbai?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Mumbai</a> a minor minister travels by local train instead of his cavalcade that becomes front page news and see how French Prez Emmanuel Macron takes a bicycle ride during his Denmark visit and chats nonchalantly. No issues, no ego…..👍👍<a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/FridayFeeling?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#FridayFeeling</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/FridayMotivation?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#FridayMotivation</a> <a href="https://t.co/Lwu7k1rami">pic.twitter.com/Lwu7k1rami</a></p>&mdash; hum_bolega (@hum_bolega) <a href="https://twitter.com/hum_bolega/status/1035395051466235905?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">August 31, 2018</a></blockquote>

The ‘Lutheran’ Danes refers to the followers of ‘Luther’ whilst ‘Gaullist’ French is a reminder of the geographical name the ancient Roman leaders gave to the countries now known as France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">When abroad, Macron likes to pepper his speeches with light French-bashing catch-phrases - yesterday in Denmark, he compared the French to &quot;Gauls defiant to change&quot; (unlike the &quot;lutherian&quot; Danes) <a href="https://t.co/ZvHSfEdwQz">https://t.co/ZvHSfEdwQz</a><br>...it&#39;s not going down extremely well in France</p>&mdash; Pauline Bock (@PaulineBock) <a href="https://twitter.com/PaulineBock/status/1035100438218059777?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">August 30, 2018</a></blockquote>

Mr Macron (pictured above with Queen Margrethe of Denmark who hosted a state banquet for him and his spouse Brigitte) said that he praised the Scandinavian model, which has a flexible labour market and generous welfare benefits, stating: ”What is possible is linked to a culture, a people marked by their own history. These Lutheran Danish people, who have lived through the transformations of recent years, are not exactly Gauls who are resistant to change.”

The domestic press immediately responded in kind. Not paying any attention to the rest of Mr Macron’s speech, they seized on this gaffe to remind their readers that their ‘Rothschild banker’ president has a habit of criticizing his own people while abroad, referring to speeches made in Greece and Romania where he also criticized his own.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">In the Face of the controversy raised by Emmanuel Macron, the spokesman for the government Benjamin Thrushes ensured that &quot;the refractory Gauls are the political parties&quot; <a href="https://t.co/3WNNCYJqLD">https://t.co/3WNNCYJqLD</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/AFP?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#AFP</a></p>&mdash; vijay banga (@lekh27) <a href="https://twitter.com/lekh27/status/1035106686942502912?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">August 30, 2018</a></blockquote>

Ms Marine Le Pen, leader of the largest opposition party, the right-wing FN (now called the National Rally) stated: "As usual, he shows contempt for the French while abroad. The 'Gauls' will be happy to respond to his arrogance and contempt."

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">&#39;Gauls resistant to change&#39;: Macron in hot water for &#39;insulting&#39; the French <a href="https://t.co/U0X6dWLFg1">https://t.co/U0X6dWLFg1</a> <a href="https://t.co/NNj65mBtct">pic.twitter.com/NNj65mBtct</a></p>&mdash; The Local France (@TheLocalFrance) <a href="https://twitter.com/TheLocalFrance/status/1035105381674938370?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">August 30, 2018</a></blockquote>

Moving on to Helsinki, Finland, Mr Macron saw the criticism in French press and tried to backtrack his words, stating: "I love France and the French and I love in all its components. I love them, these Gallic tribes, I like what we are."
