I found this imagey interesting ... "rechte diktaturen" "Right Dictatorships" with Hammer and Sickle Communist imagery  , trying to connect populism with communism AND fascism  ?   

This is all about replacing the population of Europe with cultural outsiders, the new stealth army of chaos ...

You're labeled a bigot if you are against the globalist plans of no borders and non-Europeans replacing the Europeans in Europe in this reverse colonization scheme  for total political control of the continent .

Europe 'coming apart before our eyes', say 30 top intellectuals

Group of historians and writers publish manifesto warning against rise of populism
Fight for Europe ? or the wreckers will destroy it

Liberal values in Europe face a challenge ?not seen since the 1930s?, leading intellectuals from 21 countries have said, as the UK lurches towards Brexit and nationalists look set to make sweeping gains in EU parliamentary elections.

The group of 30 writers, historians and Nobel laureates declared in a manifesto published in several newspapers, including the Guardian, that Europe as an idea was ?coming apart before our eyes?.

?We must now will Europe or perish beneath the waves of populism,? the document reads. ?We must rediscover political voluntarism or accept that resentment, hatred and their cortege of sad passions will surround and submerge us.?

This is an improvement on Paris ? really ? This is the ultimate ?

Saint Denis was the Cultural center of Paris for hundreds of years ,,, look whats become of it ...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint-Denis,_Seine-Saint-Denis
Saint-Denis is home to the royal necropolis of the Basilica of Saint Denis and was also the location of the associated abbey.
...
During its history, Saint-Denis has been closely associated with the French royal house. Starting from Dagobert I (c. 603 ? 639), almost every French king was buried in the Basilica.
...

 By the end of the century, there were 80 factories in Saint-Denis.

The presence of so many industries also gave rise to an important socialist movement. In 1892, Saint-Denis elected its first socialist administration, and by the 1920s, the city had acquired the nickname of la ville rouge, the red city. Until Jacques Doriot in 1934, all mayors of Saint-Denis were members of the Communist Party.

    "The more I live, the more I learn. The more I learn, the more I realize, the less I know." ~ Michel Legrand


Prolific French composer Michel Legrand, who won three Oscars and five Grammys during a career spanning more than half a century, died aged 86 on Saturday, prompting an outpouring of tributes for his "inexhaustible genius".

Legrand's music spanned a wide range of styles and genres. He composed for more than 200 film and TV productions and was associated with over 100 albums.

"Since I was a child, my ambition has been to live completely surrounded by music, my dream was to not miss anything, which is why I have never focused on a single musical discipline," he once said.

"Enough!": Pro-Macron "Red Scarf" Activists Bussed Into Paris To Counter Yellow Vests

Thousands of pro-Macron climate activists materialized in Paris on Sunday to counter the Yellow Vest movement during the 11th straight week of protests against the French government.

....

"We denounce the insurrectional climate installed by the Yellow Vests. We also reject the threats and constant verbal abuse [suffered by non-Yellow Vests]," reads a joint manifesto.

...
The Blue Vest movement was founded by 36-year-old legal expert Laurent Segnis and cropped up on Twitter in November to protest ?the blockades, the violence, the unjustified restrictions on the freedom to come and go as you please, the attacks on freedom of opinion (if you?re not a Yellow Vest, you?re wealthy, or worse)?.
...

Can the Red Scarves match the anger and passion behind the Yellow Vest movement? Only time will tell.

Leading Yellow Vest Suffers Serious Eye Injury in Paris Protests
27 Jan 2019

PARIS (AP) ? French police are investigating how a prominent yellow vest protester suffered a dramatic eye injury in Paris, as well as other protest-related injuries.

Violence by protesters and the sometimes-aggressive police response have prompted a national debate since the anti-government movement kicked off two months ago.

A counter-demonstration is planned Sunday in Paris
by groups calling themselves the ?red scarves? and ?blue vests? to protest the violence.

Paris police said Sunday they are investigating the eye injury of protester Jerome Rodrigues, among other protest injuries. Video images show Rodriguez collapsed on the ground Saturday near the Bastille monument in Paris, where protesters throwing projectiles clashed with police seeking to disperse them.

... here's that 'global compact' that TRUMP (and some
other world leaders) have condemned and refused to
sign ... it is the notorious anti-white-Euro "REPLACEMENT
MIGRATION" plan to hand over EUROPE and the US
to AFRICA and the MIDDLE EASTERN muslims:

GLOBAL COMPACT FOR SAFE, ORDERLY AND REGULAR MIGRATION

INTERGOVERNMENTALLY NEGOTIATED AND AGREED OUTCOME
13 July 2018

We, the Heads of State and Government and High Representatives, meeting in Morocco on 10 and 11 December 2018, reaffirming the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants and determined to make an important contribution to enhanced cooperation on international migration in all its dimensions, have adopted this Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration:

PREAMBLE


1. This Global Compact rests on the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations.
2. It also rests on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights; the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights; the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights; the other core international human rights treaties; the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime, including the Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons Especially Women and Children and the Protocol against the Smuggling of Migrants by Land, Sea and Air; the Slavery Convention and the Supplementary Convention on the Abolition of Slavery, the Slave Trade, and Institutions and Practices Similar to Slavery; the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change; the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification; the Paris Agreement2; the International Labour Organization conventions on promoting decent work and labour migration3; as well as on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development; the Addis Ababa Action Agenda; the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction, and the New Urban Agenda.
3. Discussions about international migration at the global level are not new. We recall the advances made through the United Nations High-level Dialogues on International Migration and Development in 2006 and 2013. We also acknowledge the contributions of the Global Forum on Migration and Development launched in 2007. These platforms paved the way for the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants, through which we committed to elaborate a Global International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women, Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, Convention on the Rights of the Child, International Convention on the Protection of the Rights of All Migrant Workers and Members of Their Families, International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance, Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
Adopted under the UNFCCC in FCCC/CP/2015/10/Add.1, decision 1/CP.21.
Migration for Employment Convention of 1949 (No.97), Migrant Workers Convention of 1975 (No.143), Equality of Treatment Convention of 1962 (No.118), Convention on Decent Work for Domestic Workers of 2011 (No.189).
 
Compact for Refugees and to adopt this Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration, in two separate processes. The two Global Compacts, together, present complementary international cooperation frameworks that fulfil their respective mandates as laid out in the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants, which recognizes that migrants and refugees may face many common challenges and similar vulnerabilities.

The European Gendarmerie Force Day 2016

On 18 October 2016, the European Gendarmerie Force celebrated the ninth anniversary since its creation with a ceremony hosted at the site of its Permanent Headquarters in Vicenza (Italy).


...
he ceremony was concluded by the Commander?s speech, wherein he emphasized the role of the EGF in the stabilization of crisis under the umbrella of the United Nations, European Union and NATO, in missions in Afghanistan, the Central African Republic, Mali, and the EU planning cell for Libya, as well as the training capacity provided to the EU mission in Ukraine and the planning for the EU missions in Rafah and Georgia.


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_Gendarmerie_Force

The European Gendarmerie Force (EUROGENDFOR or EGF) is a European intervention force
with militarised police functions and specialisation in crisis management.[2][3]

The EGF was launched by an agreement in 2006 between five member states of the European Union (EU): France, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, and Spain.
Romania joined in 2009; Poland in 2011.[4]


Its status is enshrined in the Treaty of Velsen of 18 October 2007.[5] The headquarters are located in Vicenza, Italy.

....
The EGF was declared fully operational on 20 July 2006, following the High Level Interministerial meeting in Madrid, Spain, and its second successful Command Post exercise (CPX), which took place between 19?28 April 2006. The first CPX was held at the National Gendarmerie Training Center in Saint Astier, France in June 2005.

...
The EGF is based in Vicenza, in northeastern Italy, and has a core of 800 to 900 members ready to deploy within 30 days.
...
Germany does not take part, as its constitution does not permit the use of military forces for police services.

...

there is a tight integration of police forces based on the Pr?m Treaty. Originally the Pr?m Treaty regulated access to police databases of neighboring countries but it was used multiple times as the legal foundation to exchange riot police equipment and personnel with the participating countries (Germany, Spain, France, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Austria, and Belgium).

In 2008 the Pr?m Treaty was naturalised as EU law, allowing countries access to police forces regulated under EU law (based on the Schengen Agreement). The European Police Forces Training of 2009 (EUPFT 2009) was run in Vicenza (home of EGF headquarters) and the EUPFT 2010 on anti-riot tactics was run in Lehnin in Germany.

San Francisco Eatery Bans MAGA Hat-Wearing Customers
31 Jan 2019

The owner of a San Francisco-area eatery announced Sunday that he would refuse service to any customers who walk into his restaurant wearing a ?Make America Great Again? (MAGA) hat.

J. Kenji Lopez-Alt, who is a chef-partner at Wursthall restaurant in San Mateo, said in a now-deleted tweet that he would not serve MAGA hat-wearing customers, comparing the red Trump campaign-issued caps to wearing swastikas and white hoods from the Ku Klux Klan.

?It hasn?t happened yet, but if you come to my restaurant wearing a MAGA cap, you aren?t getting served, same as if you come in wearing a swastika, white hood, or any other symbol of intolerance and hate,? according to a now-deleted tweet from Lopez-Alt obtained by the San Francisco Chronicle on Thursday.

Use of Force in France?s ?Yellow Vest? Protests Fuels Anger
By Elian Peltier
    Jan. 28, 2019

PARIS ? As he joined a ?Yellow Vest? protest in Bordeaux, in southwestern France, Jean-Marc Michaud felt elated. His wife worked nearby and they had not seen each other in a month, so the march was a perfect opportunity to reunite.

Instead, his life took a serious turn for the worse at the protest in early December, when a rubber projectile fired by the police destroyed his right eye. Mr. Michaud, 41, who lives on France?s western coast, now joins demonstrations to protest both economic distress and police violence.

?The government claims that we are looters and violent protesters, but so many of us are just peaceful civilians,? said Mr. Michaud, a horticulturist who now wears an eye patch and says his arms were raised when he was shot. ?The government isn?t listening to us, and now they are trying to silence us with repression in the streets.?

Anger at officers? use of force has helped fuel the nationwide
...

There has been particular outrage at serious injuries caused by rubber balls, about the size of golf balls, that the police fire at demonstrators with specially made guns ? wounds that have made headlines for weeks. Human rights groups say the police in most Western European countries do not use those tools.

The latest controversy erupted on Saturday, when J?r?me Rodrigues, a well-known figure in the movement, suffered an eye injury as he was streaming live video on Facebook of a protest in Paris. Before he was hit, he warned that hard-left agitators were fomenting violence, and advised demonstrators to disperse.

Mr. Rodrigues and his lawyer said he had been hit by both a rubber ball and a ?dispersal grenade,? which explodes and sprays smaller rubber pellets.

...
?He will be handicapped for life,? the lawyer, Philippe de Veulle, told BFMTV. ?It is a tragedy for him and his family.?

Since violent clashes began in November, 11 people have died, and 1,900 protesters and 1,200 law enforcement officers have been injured, according to the Interior Ministry.
...

Yellow Vests Protest Merkel-Macron Treaty on Integrating Defence, Foreign Policy
By Victoria Friedman
January 22, 2019

German Yellow Vest activists protested Emmanuel Macron and Angela Merkel signing a treaty which aims to bring together the economic and defence policies of France and Germany in a prototype ?Sovereign Europe?.

Germany?s Angela Merkel and France?s Emmanuel Macron signed the expansion of the 1963 French-German reconciliation ?lys?e treaty in Aachen, Germany, on Tuesday.

The treaty proposes to integrate aspects of France and Germany, including merging public transport networks and utilities in border regions, creating a common economic area, and developing shared social and political fields, according to Euractiv.

Most controversially, the treaty also includes plans for shared defence and foreign policy, building on Merkel?s earlier pledges of support for Macron?s call for an EU army.

....
Its signing was meant to send a message to Eurosceptics that the two EU leaders would continue their efforts to further integrate not only the EU, but their own countries.

...

The choice of German medieval city Aachen, which sits on the border with Belgium and the Netherlands, is significant as the residence and burial place of Charlemagne, the first Holy Roman Emperor and dubbed the ?Father of Europe? for having united swathes of the continent by the 9th century.

A number of Yellow Vest protesters from Germany gathered, with one, Henrik, telling Sky News, ?We are here to protest against Macron and Merkel because of the way they are changing Europe.

?This is not the idea of Europe. Europe is an economic platform that everyone can work together with ? not the kind of Europe where leaders [tell us what to do].

?Countries have the right to say they want this or that, but not Europe.?
...
Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: For he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole ; He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. - Job 5

Grenade Blows Yellow Vest?s Hand Apart as Anti-Macron Protests Turn Ugly
9 Feb 2019

PARIS (AP) ? A French yellow vest protester?s hand was ripped apart Saturday during violent clashes in Paris as demonstrators tried to storm the French National Assembly in a 13th consecutive week of unrest. (Warning: article contains graphic tweet.)

Police said the injured protester lost four fingers as police swooped in to stop protesters from breaching the parliament?s exterior. Police could not confirm French media reports that the demonstrator?s hand was blown up by a grenade used to disperse unruly crowds.

As scuffles broke out in front of the National Assembly and French police responded with tear gas, paramedics huddled around the injured protester at the National Assembly gates, providing emergency treatment and stopping bystanders from getting too close.

...

Police used batons and fired tear gas in Paris to disperse demonstrators, some of whom threw debris at riot police hunkered down.

Fire department spokesman Gildas Lecoeur told The Associated Press that the injured man was taken to a hospital, but he couldn?t confirm his current condition.

Soros Panics Over Populist Revolt: "EU Is Sleepwalking Into Oblivion"

Tue, 02/12/2019 - 06:30


Authored by George Soros via Project Syndicate,

https://www.project-syndicate.org/commentary/political-party-systems-undermining-european-union-by-george-soros-2019-02

Europe is sleepwalking into oblivion, and the people of Europe need to wake up before it is too late. If they don?t, the European Union will go the way of the Soviet Union in 1991. Neither our leaders nor ordinary citizens seem to understand that we are experiencing a revolutionary moment, that the range of possibilities is very broad, and that the eventual outcome is thus highly uncertain.

Most of us assume that the future will more or less resemble the present, but this is not necessarily so. In a long and eventful life, I have witnessed many periods of what I call radical disequilibrium. We are living in such a period today.
