FRENCH CONNECTION

French Anti-Equality Forces Plan Demonstration In London’s Trafalgar Square

Trafalgar SquareThe French are coming! The French are coming! The Gallic anti-equality group La Manif pour Tous (“March for All”) is planning a demonstration in Trafalgar Square in London  to oppose same-sex marriage legislation in England and Wales.

Why don’t you stick to your own side of the Channel, n’est–ce pas?

The protest is set for March 24, Palm Sunday, the same day a massive anti-marriage equality demonstration is planned along the Champs-Elysees. (A previous march near the Eiffel Tower drew more than 300,000 people.)

It’s funny how, in this country at least, opponents of same-sex marriage blather on about the will of the people—and yet, across the Pond, they have to truck in the haters from abroad.

Too bad they got rid of all those pigeons in Trafalgar Square.

      They don’t even matter in their own country, let alone the country that has the most reason to be hostile to the French right for how they’ve treat British and American soldiers and their own freedom fighters. They can’t work with the EDL and every other right wing group of nutters who hate Britain, because they hate the French anyway.

      They shouldn’t be allowed in. I don’t want stupid people from French people trying to force their bigotry into our sovereign laws.

      @2eo: I agree. I hope Mayor Boris Johnson follows suit with the French openly gay Mayor of Paris….present them with a bill for not just littering but also for added police presence. I hope it pisses down with rain all day. They call themselves christians do they? A bit rich choosing Palm Sunday don’t you think and choosing to spread hate is hardly what I’d call christian.

      @alexoloughlin: If I told you the actual numbers of what my Grandad and his remaining colleagues did to these traitorous vermin who shopped his group and had nearly all his friends killed for helping the Resistance in 1945 your head would spin.

      Lets just say that when the place was liberated a lot [A LOT] of Vichy collaborators got their throats slit.

      @alexoloughlin: Needless to say I’ve got a real bee in my bonnet about the French right.

      @2eo: I have nothing against them personally even though they are hopeless in war, I just don’t think it’s right they’re allowed to come to the UK to foment hatred and homophobia which is what opposition to equal marriage is all about. The Home Office has barred undesirables from entering the UK but having other foreigners trying to meddle in UK domestic legislation aided and abetted by the French roman cult just isn’t on. I find it appalling that a French hate group is allowed to get away with it on British soil. It’s quite revealing that opponents have to bring in foreigners to help them with their hate agenda. That tells me that opposition isn’t that high among the British public, far from it if they have to resort to that sort of thing to boost their numbers. Trafalgar square isn’t that big of a space and I don’t think there will be anywhere near as many who assembled in Paris. Let’s hope it rains on their parade, the entire day hopefully.

      I find it very odd that a French group is protesting in the UK…they are desparate to stop what they know is inevitable.

      @MuscleModelBlog.com: One of the French shills said that French nationals living in the UK (and there are many of them) are the ones behind it citing certain reasons why they won’t be in Paris on the same day for another demo there as a last ditch to thwart the third and final equal marriage vote on April 2 when it is expected to pass into law. Of course, the British opponents have been co-opted to join them since they couldn’t organize their own demo probably because of the lack of support in numbers. Several days ago, Ann Widdecombe, a very bigoted old former Tory MP and catholic convert was urging British opponents to take to the streets in an article she wrote for her local newspaper. This isn’t entirely coincidental I’m sure. I suspect it’s been planned for weeks since the Paris demonstrations took place. It’s going to be a waste of time either way.
