French Prime Minister Manuel Valls Condemns Donald Trump but He Voted For the French Suspension of Civil Liberties in response to Paris Attacks, Hypocrisy Abounds.

December 8th, 2015 · No Comments

It turns out that politicians all around the world are hypocrites as the French Prime Minister criticizes Donald Trump for his call to ban foreign Muslims from entering the U.S. when Mr. Valls voted to suspend these French civil liberties:

Expanded powers to immediately place under house arrest any person if there are “serious reasons to think their behaviour is a threat to security or public order”.

More scope to dissolve groups or associations that participate in, facilitate or incite acts that are a threat to public order. Members of these groups can be placed under house arrest.
Extended ability to carry out searches without warrants and to copy data from any system found. MPs, lawyers, magistrates and journalists will be exempt.
Increased capacity to block websites that “encourage” terrorism.

The move was approved by a vote of 551-6 with 6 abstentions, and a recent poll indicates “84 percent of the French people (are) willing to give up some freedoms to guarantee their security.”

Here is what the hypocritical Valls said:

Addressing parliament before the vote, the prime minister, Manuel Valls, said the increased security measures were the sign of France’s strength. “It’s the efficient response of a democracy, a free country,” he said adding that other liberties could be temporarily limited. He continued: “We’re at war.”
