Riot police clash with protesters in Paris as 300,000 take to the streets to demonstrate against gay marriage

I think its time they stopped calling it, “Gay Paris”

I will not say my personal opinion of this issue at this time. But I don’t think that 300,000 people marching at one time in one city should go unreported.

Eeyore.

Paris riot police fought back crowds who pushed their way onto Paris’ landmark Champs-Elysees avenue today as part of a huge protest against a draft law allowing same-sex couples to marry and adopt children.

Up to 300,000 people – conservative activists, children, retirees, priests – converged on the capital in a last-ditch bid to stop the bill, many bussed in from the French provinces.

The lower house of France’s parliament approved the ‘marriage for everyone’ bill last month with a large majority, and it’s facing a vote in the Senate next month.

At least 300,000 people converged on the centre of Paris in a protest opposing the bill that will allow homosexual couples to get married and adopt children At least 300,000 people converged on the centre of Paris in a protest opposing the bill that will allow homosexual couples to get married and adopt children

Both houses are dominated by French President Francois Hollande’s Socialist Party and its allies.

Sustained protests led by opposition conservatives in this traditionally Catholic country have eroded support for the draft law in recent months, and organizers hope Sunday’s march will weigh on the Senate debate.

  1. It’s not so much a question if one opposes gay marriage, as I do, or not, it’s the brutal power grab by a elitist minority one has to oppose. It’s the sovijet stile forced transformation of values, that destroyes our societies in so many aspects.

    I am glad to see the Katholics of France fighting for teir freedom. We are far away from that here in Germany!

    Some days ago I found that video, its some years old now, but really disturbing.

  2. Their economy is crumbling, their borders are uncontrollable, they have massive crime and 730 no go areas but this is whats important to the people and government of France. same in America.
    The government spends it’s time on a tiny minority of the general population while ignoring the important issues that affect all the citizens. It’s a mad mad world. It’s giving me a headache and Touettes

  3. Just a quick comment en passant (have not looked into this yet in depth). But I see in the second picture a placard saying: “Casse toi Taubira” (piss off Taubira). Christine Taubira is the horrid horrid horrid Minister of Justice (with a sh..tload of power) in the socialist government. She is an anti-white racist, hater of France, and the first “decree” she instigated was to “liberate” all the “youth from the so-called sensitive suburbs” (read arab/muslim/sub-Sahara thugs) from the threat of a prison sentence (if they are under 18 or 19 y.o.). They are the biggest 90% demographic who pack-rapes, murders, pushes drugs, etc. etc. The reason they should, according to Taubira, not be incarcerated is because “they carry the stigma of former colonisation on their shoulders”.

    So, officially these revolts might be about same-sex marriage etc. – and France was formerly known as the “first daughter of the (Catholic) church” – but the true engine that drives all this is that the real French people are having enough of the islamisation of Europe, the erosion of their rights, the quasi government accepted “blasphemy laws” (you try and criticise Islam and you are finished), the creeping of sharia into the constitutionally secular France etc.

    I also know that the conservative (media will call them of course extreeeeeeeeeeeme right wing) group “Les Identitaires” are, if not behind, so at least a driver of this march. ‘They have advertised it largely among their followers. (I admire that group, they were the ones who mounted on a Mosque, displaying banners – peacefully – against the Islamisation of their France).

    Christine Taubira personifies everything that ails France at the moment, so the law that she passed wrt same sex marriage is probably just the proverbial straw….

    I’m speculating as I said, because I haven’t been online a lot lately (and it’s not from the MEDIA that one gets anything else but leftist propaganda) but I think this item (same-sex marriage) in the litany of so many items the French object to, gets more support and is complicated by the fact that the muslims too are against it.

    Mind you, I dare predict that the media will try to treat it with their strategic “Totschweigen”. (kill it with silence) but I hope they won’t succeed.

    I’m not making any judgment about same-sex marriage, as I basically dont care other than to approve of the wit who said:

    “…[they have]…transformed the love that dare not speak its name into the one that never shuts up.”

    The above came from the department of “Thinking aloud”, unedited.

  4. The picture I linked to above is of the execrable Christine Taubira.

    And the name of the group of those young French nationalists is “Le Block Identitaire”. Here is a video they made a year or so ago…meanwhile it has been censored, but you can still see enough, and Eyore might have one that is still integral:

  5. I am with Rita this is about more then Gay Marriage, not that I think the protesters aren’t opposed to it but this is the latest action that the left has taken to impose their ideas on the world with no regard for the wishes of the people.

    Taffy in many ways this is as important and dangerous as the other problems, western society is facing, the left is attempting to forcibly change the mores and morals of the society against the wishes of the majority of the people. Also this is just the opening move, some of the people pushing for gay marriage in the US have already stated that the next move will be for polygamy, polyandry consensual adult incest. You have to draw the line somewhere and in the US the people have chosen this and the second amendment as lines in the sand.

  6. “I am with Rita this is about more then Gay Marriage, not that I think the protesters aren’t opposed to it but this is the latest action that the left has taken to impose their ideas on the world with no regard for the wishes of the people…”

    Thanks Richard for putting in a nutshell what I meant to say 🙂

  7. You are welcome guys, Rita you were very clear and more detailed then I was. Taffy I have been watching the left work to destroy the west since before we left Nam, that gives me some advantages but the actions of our leaders often leave me bewildered, and these are the ones that supposedly aren’t trying to destroy us. The ones like Obama are easy to read and understand.

  8. There is a point to which a population can be pushed and fed BS by the elites, then they will push back. IMHO even the socialist and liberal minded French are fed up with the massive doses of Political Correctness (i.e. Marxism) being forced upon them. They are witnessing the destruction of their culture and civil society before. their very eyes.They do not want a violent, tribal 3rd world cesspool of a nation.

  9. The push back has begun, it is people like these who are the future of western civilization (if it is to survive) they are the ones who will save freedom if it can be saved.

  10. Apparently the “power that be” have misled the organisers of this huge march: blocking them from their planned itenerary (down the Champs Elysees) at the last moment, even as people were arriving. The organisers had soooo much trouble keeping the bigger than expected crowds under control. The police were firing tear gas – and there is a picture – worth a 1000 words – of the respected leader of the Christian Democratic party, a middle aged woman (whose name I forget at the moment) laying on the ground, hit by tear gas. She has meanwhile demanded the resignation of the minister of Interior. One thing this woman has is the voice of the usually dhimmy and left wing media.

  11. Oh, and the organisers of this march were FORBIDDEN (at the last moment) to march down the Champs-Elysees (as planned). No such restrictions to the allah-u-akbarists – and assorted muslims and thugs to call this famous avenue their own, while calling for the killing of all Jews, recently:

  12. Same sex marriage is anathema. It is the equivalent of bestowing all of the rights and authorities on an Honorary Doctoral degree recipient as that earned by an actual Doctor. Who gave the elitist minority the authority to redefine the 2000+ year old definition? News flash-marriage, real or pretend, is NOT guaranteed in the US Constitution…

  13. Samesexmarriage will add to our immigration problem . This is the ugly of Nature not the equality of People . will destroy the growth to our kids . Might as well cancel all marriage and no more tax loopholes. Change the way we occupy our Jails . How can anyone approve two guys adopting a girl even at the age of 1 . how sick does that sound ? trafficking would be legal just about .. This is so stupid even to think about gay marriage . Are we really becoming barbarians of entitlements to such a law ?
