Whenever Any Form of Government Becomes Destructive To These Ends,
It Is The Right of the People to Alter Or To Abolish It,
And To Institute New Government

Something Odd Is Going On In France

PEGIDA, for those who are not familiar, is the name for a group of loosely-knit citizens in various European countries who oppose the importation of large numbers of Muslim migrants. They express their opposition to this state of affairs by walking together in the streets of major cities, mostly in silence, often holding candles.

The word PEGIDA is an acronym, in German, meaning Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamisation of Europe. In German the words are Patriotische Europäer gegen die Islamisierung des Abendlandes.

PEGIDA first began in Germany, but has spread to other countries, including France.

A recent PEGIDA demonstration in Calais, Frnace, was attempted by a retired General of the French military named General Piquemal.

General Piquemal, an older gentleman, was arrested in a somewhat rough fashion by the French police, resulting in a short hospital stay during his period of arrest.

Since his arrest he has, apparently, spoken on multiple occasion, each time expressing different points-of-view on PEGIDA and his participation in it's demonstrations.

It looks as if someone may have had a little talk with General Piquemal.

From Vlad Tepes:
As this site reported, during the protest in Calais by PEGIDA that the government banned but citizens did anyway, a former general and commander of the French Foreign Legion in the 1990s, General Piquemal, was the figurehead and champion of the people of Calais for this demonstration. 
Regular readers of this site might have noticed a somewhat conspicuous absence of information after the brutal and well videotaped arrest of the General by police, even while ‘ANTI-FA’ violent protestors went unmolested. 
The General was in jail that night and in hospital the next, after which he gave a stunning speech about how wrong he was to be at the protest and made other noises consistent with current government policies in France today. 
After he was released, he made another sharp turn and spoke again about the plight of the indigenous French. 
It will take some time and research to come up with some kind of definitive explanation for these events ...

Here's a video discussing the situation:

Dozens of people came to the High Court of Boulogne-sur-Mer Monday, February 8, to support Christian Thornton for his trial to come, but also to support four people involved in the banned protest of Calais. One defendant was sentenced to 3 months imprisonment. On leaving the court, several said "ashamed of justice."
