Macron goes “fully” from his statements to “annoy” those who do not get vaccinated

The President of France, Emmanuel Macron, defended some controversial statements this Friday in which he called for “angering” citizens vaccinated against COVID-19, words he “utterly” despite the criticism of the past few days “assumes.

Macron said he wanted “the alarm to sound” and stressed that every citizen has rights and “above all” duties. “The concept of freedom”, he emphasized, “ends where the freedom of the other is, where the life of the other can be in danger.”

The term “familiar”, which Macron used in an interview with “Le Parisien” to accuse the unvaccinated – in French “emmerder” – was particularly shocking at a time when a debate arose in France about whether it was precisely impose something or not the vaccination card as a central mobility tool.

The French President, who received the representatives of the European Commission in Paris, together with the President of the Municipal Council, Ursula von der Leyen, declared that France is not the only country that is committed to restricting the freedoms of those who do so do not want to be vaccinated against the coronavirus.

“Some (governments) make vaccinations compulsory after a certain age, but most of them restrict social life and say, ‘If you are not vaccinated, you cannot go into this place,'” Macron said at the conference.

Critics of the statements include the president’s main rivals in the upcoming elections. Agrupación Nacional chairwoman Marine Le Pen made Macron struck by his “vulgarity”, while Los Republicanos candidate Valérie Pécresse told CNews that “insults are never a good solution”.
