% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Stunning. In the French President’s new book named ‘A president should not say that’, he declared women who wear the veil will be the “Marianne of the future”. Marianne is a national symbol of the French Republic, an allegory of liberty and reason, and a portrayal of the Goddess of Liberty.

There it is for all the world to see. Surrender.

The official busts of Marianne initially had anonymous features, appearing as women of the people. From 1969 however they began to take on the features of famous women, starting with the actress Brigitte Bardot. She was followed by Mireille Mathieu (1978), Catherine Deneuve (1985), Inès de La Fressange (1989), Laetitia Casta (2000) and Évelyne Thomas (2003). And now the burka. marianne

The symbol of France will go from being the exaltation of freedom in the embodiment of the beauty of woman to the most misogynist, gruesome, anti-human hateful costume – the symbol of subjugation and oppression.

Marianne is a significant republican symbol, an icon of freedom and democracy against all forms of dictatorship.

The burka is the symbol of misogyny, theocracy, hate and suppression.


Women in burkas will become national symbol: Hollande admits France ‘has an Islam problem’ The Express, October 11, 2016:

BURKA-wearing Muslim women will become the future symbol of France, Francois Hollande has said in his new book.

n the French President’s new book named ‘A president should not say that’, he declared women who wear the veil will be the “Marianne of the future”.

Marianne is France’s national icon and a symbol of its values of liberty, egality and fraternity.

But his comment on the wild-haired, bare-breasted Marianne angered scores of hardline politicians, who bitterly condemned the leader’s words via social media this morning.

Angered “hardline polticians” — anyone who opooses the most brutal and extreem ideology on the face of the earth is hardline.

They claim Mr Hollande has “given up” and is no longer willing to wage a war against radical Islam.

Brigitte Kuster, the Republican mayor of Paris’s 17th arrondissement, said she wished she could erase Mr Hollande’s words from her memory, that his statement about Marianne was “indecent and provocative”.

Presidential hopeful Bruno Le Maire, a right-wing candidate, tweeted: “Marianne will never wear the Islamic veil!”

n extreme-right mayor, Jacques Bompard, said Mr Hollande was gearing up for next year’s presidential elections, and that his words were an “attempt to woo Muslim voters”.

Marianne will never wear the Islamic veil!

Another right-winger, Guillaume Larrivé, said: “No, Marianne will never wear the full-face veil. The French must fight against submission, and will not take a step backwards.”

“Right-winger” – that’s what they call those who stand in defense of freedom.

But Mr Hollande’s supporters say his words have been taken out of context and misread.

According to French newspaper Le Monde, Mr Hollande was trying to say sometime in the near future, Muslim women would have liberated themselves from the shackles of religion and would be fully integrated into French society.

Brigitte KusterGETTY

Brigitte Kuster, the Republican mayor of Paris’s 17th arrondissement, said his words were ‘indecent’

They will only wear the headscarf because they want to, and not because they have to, he said.

He said: “Muslim women could still feel that the Islamic veil is a form protection, but they will no longer be forced to wear it.”

But the ‘Arabic Marianne’ comment is not the tell-all book’s only shocking revelation.

Nicolas Sarkozy and Marine Le PenGETTY

Mr Hollande also said he would vote for Nicolas Sarkozy over the fsr-right candidate Marine Le Pen

The president also said “too many” illegal immigrants were “pouring” into France, and his country had a “problem” with Islam, because religious leaders were “imposing” their beliefs and values on the secular Republic.

Mr Hollande also said he would vote for Nicolas Sarkozy – whom he called cynical and money-oriented – if he had to choose between the latter and far-right candidate Marine Le Pen, who, according to polls, will make it through to the final round of the presidential elections, no matter what.

The French leader is currently facing a conservative backlash over immigration.

Mr Hollande is also alleged to have targeted ethnic minority football stars who he branded “guys from the estates, without references, without values, who leave France too early”.

In explosive revelations made by investigative

journalists, the socialist Mr Hollande emerges every bit as right wing as his hated opponents from the National Front and Republican parties.

It is claimed he reveals his true feelings in a private conversation – launching a general attack on people from Muslim backgrounds whom Mr Hollande views as a major difficulty for his country.

According to investigators, Mr Hollande reveals he no longer supports mass immigration, saying: “I think there are too many arrivals.”

And he adds: “It’s true there’s a problem with Islam, it’s true. It’s not in doubt.”
