The French army is reportedly considering disciplinary action against generals who allegedly referred to French president Emmanuel Macron as a “traitor” for signing the UN Global Compact for Migration.
A total of ten generals, a colonel, an admiral, and former French Minister of Defence Charles Millon put their signatures to a document released on December 10th that denounced the signing of the controversial UN migration compact in Marrakesh, Morocco, L’Opinion reports.
The letter, which was posted online, states: “By deciding alone to sign this pact, you would add an additional reason for a revolt with the anger of an already battered people. You would be guilty of a denial of democracy or treason against the nation.
“The French state is late in coming to realise the impossibility of integrating too many people, in addition to totally different cultures, who have regrouped in the last forty years in areas that no longer submit to the laws of the Republic.
“You can not decide alone to erase our civilisational landmarks and deprive us of our homeland,” the letter adds, calling for a referendum on the issue.
Mounted Police and APCs Deployed as ‘Act IV’ of Yellow Vest Protests Unfolds https://t.co/3ot7no3ICc

Several of the signatories are already known for their anti-mass migration stances, including former French Foreign Legion chief General Christian Piquemal, who was stripped of military privileges after taking part in an anti-mass migration protest in Calais in 2016.
Piquemal was also seen at the Yellow Vest “Act IV” protests on December 8th giving a speech to a crowd of protesters while wearing a yellow vest. The Yellow Vest movement has protested the Macron government for weeks and, carrying on despite achieving a stoppage of the President’s “green” fuel tax increases.
Retired General André Coustou, 73, who also signed the document, evoked the theory of the “Great Replacement” coined by writer Renaud Camus, saying: “Once signed, this pact will compel our country to welcome a large number of immigrants, while it has not yet assimilated those who are already there. France will lose its Frenchness.”
Mr Camus spoke exclusively to Breitbart London on the subject of the Yellow Vest protests late last month, describing his theory of “replacementism” and saying the protests were about “lack of respect, general exchangeability, being treated by managerial politics like an object, a simple product.”
