Macron in Washington

Macron in Washington, by Srdja Trifkovic.

Macron is, both ideologically and temperamentally, the polar opposite of Trump. …

Trump and Macron are not “two alpha males,” and I have this sneaky suspicion that the leftist-liberal media machine is keen to award the French president Trump’s indubitable “alpha” status in order to neutralize suspicions about Macron’s sexual orientation. In reality, while Trump is a heterosexual who evidently likes pretty women younger than himself, Macron is most likely a bisexual who was fond of older women as a teenager — his wife is 24 years his senior — but now prefers handsome younger men, like the former Radio France president Mathieu Gallet.

Trump is an eccentric in many ways, to be sure, but for all his faults he is genuine and honest, a true albeit diminishing American type.

Macron is the poster-boy of Europe’s postmodern transnational elite, a former international banker and fanatical Euro-integralist. He is also an Islamophile (“No religion is a problem in France today . . . What poses a problem is not Islam, but certain behaviors that are said to be religious and then imposed on persons who practice that religion”) and an open-borders enthusiast (by allowing over a million migrants in, “[Chancellor] Merkel and German society as a whole exemplified our common European values. They saved our collective dignity”). In February 2017 he lampooned Trump’s promise to protect America’s southern border by pledging never to build a wall of any kind. …

[Macron] embodies the deracinated Western elite class, rootless, arrogant, cynical, and manipulative. He illustrates more vividly than any other European leader (save Angela Merkel) the Spenglerian loss of the will to define and defend one’s Kultur, and the pan-European loss of the desire (let alone ability) to procreate.
