Journalist warns Macron crisis could lead to right-wing takeover of Europe By  – Voice of Europe

A French journalist from The Guardian has called on people to help France’s weakened and beleaguered President Emmanuel Macron instead of showing hatred or scorn over the “gilets jaunes [yellow vests]predicament”.

Whilst she admits he’s made errors which have given life to the feeling that they were ‘the invisible’ being treated with contempt by Parisan elites, she predicts that this could give rise to “extremists” who are seeking “a political takeover of Europe in next May’s European Parliament elections”.

She considers this the greater evil, not just for France but the entire continent. “Just as a weakened Merkel didn’t do much to help Macron in relaunching the European project, a weakened Macron will now provide new fodder for extremists and populists across the continent.

If we don’t find solutions, the EU election in France risks becoming a referendum against Macron”, her article states, warning that anti-establishment and right-wing forces are waiting in the wings.

A recent poll shows that 69 per cent are against using violence in the protests, however 72 per cent support the “yellow vest” movement which has taken place since 17 November in France, as well as, having spread to other EU countries.

As well, whilst The Guardian’s Natalie Nougayrède fears it means the ‘far-right’ will use this as some sort of power-grab, the ‘yellow vests’ have grown out of both left and right-wing groups.
