Looks like there was a huge protest today against the newly elected President of France.

 

We'll see what happens from here.

I am just a curious to find out more who this Macron guy is because nobody heard of him up until the election.

100 protestors isn't a huge protest.  The huge FEMEN protest against Le Pen last week was far larger.  (I will not say more as you'll be ogling the protestors from that march for weeks, supporting The Groper as you do.)
 
As for your lack of Macron knowledge, he's a former Hollande minister who started his own party to take a new political center line.  You can read all about it here.

He will get impeached, that's for sure. Cause he's a leftist liberal who copes with people's will. And then Le Pen gets his seat and saves Soviet Republic of France from dirty infidel muslims.

He is basically Trump then?

Rich White businessman with no political experience.

I'm not French but will see what he does for them.

P.S. Is there an Asia-Pacific political thread? I like to talk about their policies.

Speaking of Le Pen, she sure knows how to be carefree after a brutal landslide.

Can't you frigging read?

 

 

As for your lack of Macron knowledge, he's a former Hollande minister who started his own party to take a new political center line.  You can read all about it here.

 

Or for a summary: 

-Inspector of Finances at Inspectorate General of Finances (IGF)

-Deputy Secretary-General under Hollande in 2012

-Minister of Economy, Industry and Digital Affairs in 2014

President of France in 2017

 

He has more political experience than the entire Trump family tree combined.

Do you suffer from some kind of affliction that renders you incapable of processing text? Or do you just enjoy the sound of your own voice as you batter away incoherently on topics you're evidently completely clueless about?

English is actually my second language.  Do you have a problem with people that don't speak the language well?
 
I ask if there was Asia-Pacific political discussion from a few post ago and I was wondering what you thought about Japan's strict immigration policy?  I think it is very smart on their part.  In 2016, Japan rejected almost every applicant that tried to enter the country.  They only allowed 28 people and 2 of them ended up raped a woman.  2 out of 28 which is about 7 percent of what they bring in.  Whether that number consistently stays in a range, go up or go down is unknown.  It may drop or go up.
 
With that said....I think Eastern Asian countries policies towards immigration is very fair.

You're welcome to make one.

They only allowed 28 people and 2 of them ended up raped a woman.  2 out of 28 which is about 7 percent of what they bring in.

What's your point here? Is it that Japan are bad at vetting immigrants? Or that immigrants are a dangerous? To me it sounds more like the former but you seem to present it as the latter, though in reality it's obviously neither given that it's a cherry picked example from an unworkable small sample size.

Also, according to the article you've posted, the two rapists were asylum seekers. That means they hadn't actually been granted leave to stay and therefore wouldn't comprise two of the 28 migrants that Japan permitted to settle. It might help if you developed an understanding of the terminology.

I was amazed by the great people of Poland.  They are one of the few countries that got their stuff right.  Great to see the alliance with them. 

 

They are also pitching in that 2% towards NATO.

No G20 thread so:

Watching the protests via CNN and I have to give super extra credit to the one protester who was using a orange comfy chair as a shield. Fantastic.

So.. the geezer who makes sure to douse us with a bi-weekly dose of r/the_donald bootlicking hails the country with a far-right quasi-authoritarian government that openly attacks the free press and undermines the rule of law? I'm shocked, SHOCKED I say!

Yeah because cracking down on public protest, enforcing stringent restrictions on the media and arresting opposition politicians as foreign agents just sings "free and democratic state" doesn't it.

Mind you, it's basically the cryptofascist blueprint for Trump's perfect American so I can see why you're embracing it.

They have since, AFAIK, 2015, but not before then.
