ER Editor: LCI is a continuous news channel in the vein of BFMTV here, which is France’s CNN equivalent.
Florian Philippot is a 41-year old French politician, very seasoned, who has been organizing effective Saturday demonstrations for months turning into years. A while back he broke away from Marine Le Pen to eventually start his own party, Les Patriotes. He’s been the only effective and coherent political voice against the Covid / vaccine nonsense and all other relevant issues (Gilets Jaunes, etc.), and puts out Youtube videos everyday of REAL news in the world and intelligent commentary. Members of Macron’s government will avoid debating him in public even though he’s more than willing: He once verbally shredded Macron in the European Parliament when he was a MEP.
So, Philippot held another demonstration this past Saturday in Paris, the first after a summer hiatus. Except mainstream French TV hadn’t got the memo (or press release, which had been sent to many of them). Russian TV, it seems, had.
Europeans who aren’t living under a rock are getting it about the so-called ‘war’ which nobody seriously wants against a nuclear power, sanctions, manufactured energy crisis, penury of citizens, etc.
In addition to this demo this past weekend, protests were also seen in Prague (Czech Republic) and a couple of cities in Germany – at minimum. See:
On this Twitter thread (Italy energy bills) we can see videos of Italians publicly burning their inflated energy bills. For example:
Then subsidized French media (it’s truly awful) go and put their size 9’s in it.
LCI accuses Russian television of broadcasting false images of a demonstration which nevertheless took place!
Article to share as much as possible!!!
When French propaganda invents Russian propaganda… it’s the incredible hoax of the LCI “journalists” of Monday, September 5.
On Saturday September 3, a large demonstration organized by the Patriots for freedom and against restrictions swept through the streets of Paris, between the Place de la Bourse and the Palais-Royal, two sites clearly visible to both Parisians and tourists. If the mainstream French press seems to continue to snub the tens of thousands of demonstrators who once again gathered to the sound of “Macron get out” and “Your war, we don’t want it”, this is not the case with the foreign press, including the Russian media. A report from Russia One shows many images of the demonstration. The commentator takes the opportunity to point out that European citizens are divided: many people in France realize that the sanctions could have been avoided and that someone must answer for their consequences.
However, at the end of the report, Julien Arnaud, the host of the program Un œil sur le monde (an eye on the world), affirms without flinching that it is false Russian information since there would simply have been no demonstration. “A bogus montage”, adds in an echo another “journalist” of the media chain. Problem: the parade in question took place, the procession even passed in front of the windows of AFP (Agence France Presse)m.
The fake news is so incredible that it has made the rounds on social networks. Julien Arnaud was therefore forced this Tuesday morning to admit this “regrettable” error and hopes to get away with it with a short sentence slipped into his show this evening (Tuesdaym September 6)… Hate against Russia makes French journalists more propagandistic than usual. Apologies to Russian journalists (who did their job properly) would be appreciated.
Translation: But they’ve become crazy at LCI? See you tomorrow for the antidote to television sheep.
