Stating that policy disagreements are causing “civil war” in the EU, France’s Emmanuel Macron said Brussels must purge “populism” from the continent.

The French president, who asserted at the weekend that there will be a huge transfer of Africa’s population to Europe in the coming years, described nationalism as “deadly” during the speech in Strasbourg.

Setting out his vision of “European sovereignty”, Macron blasted what he called a “fascination with the illiberal“, insisting Brussels must be given power to preserve the EU as a “unique model” which demands “geopolitical, economic” union between nations, as well as obliging them to “respect minorities” and implement state-enforced feminism.

Democracy is a “word with meaning, which emerged from the battles of the past”, Macron told the European Parliament, and strongly suggested that any attempt to resist the left-liberal multiculturalism enforced in Western Europe echoed ghosts of the Second World War.

“I don’t want to belong to a generation of sleepwalkers that has forgotten its own past,” he said.

“I want to belong to a generation that will defend European sovereignty because we fought to obtain it,” insisted the globalist leader, adding: “I will not give in to any kind of fixation on authoritarianism.”

Speaking as part of what AFP called “a charm offensive ahead of European Parliament elections in May 2019”, Macron proposed a new pot of EU cash to help regions with the cost of housing, feeding and policing third world migrants.

“We need to create convergence on fiscal and social matters,” the Europhile figure insisted, telling MEPs that “no ambition level should be too high” when it comes to the European project, and that they “must add new ambitions”.

Breitbart London previously reported how, on Sunday evening, Macron announced that Europe is entering an “unprecedented” age of mass migration, claiming “bombshell” population growth in Africa means the two continents’ destinies are bound.

Speaking in a lengthy interview with French media, the president praised recent work by Duke University professor Stephen Smith which estimates that the number of Africans living in Europe will grow from nine million to between 150 million and 200 million within the next 30 years.

Analysts such as NumbersUSA president Roy Beck have long warned that mass migration into Europe and North America can never resolve the challenges faced by the third world, however.
