Top French Socialist and Anti-Racism Campaigner Faces Probe for Anti-Semitic Macron Tweet

Source: Internet


A top official in France’s Socialist Party is facing a legal inquiry after tweeted an image with anti-Semitic overtones against President Emmanuel Macron, sources close to the inquiry said Monday.

Gerard Filoche, a member of the Socialists’ national bureau, also risks exclusion from the party over the Twitter post last Friday night.

It showed Macron with his arms outstretched over the Earth, wearing what appears to be a Nazi armband but with the swastika replaced by a dollar sign.

Behind him are pictures of Patrick Drahi, founder of the French telecoms group Altice; the banker Jacob Rothschild; and the French economist Jacques Attali, as well as American and Israeli flags.

“On the move towards global chaos,” the caption reads, a reference to Macron’s En Marche (“On the Move”) movement that swept him to the presidency earlier this year.
