U.S. Mainstream Media Siding with the Islamists
In a landmark speech in October, French President Emmanuel Macron committed to defend secularism against Islamist separatism, adding that a law would be presented by year's end. Even though Macron made sure to specifically repeat that he is fighting Islamism and not Islam, what made the headlines was his statement that "Islam is in a crisis all over the world" because of "tensions between fundamentalism and political projects ... that lead to very strong radicalization."
That speech was the starting point of a hate campaign against France
from the usual suspects: the jihadists, the Islamists, most Muslim nations and
the American liberal media. The two U.S. media outlets that have led a
dishonest all-out campaign against France are the New York Times and
the Washington Post.
