French not amused by Pindo pressure to withdraw Cannes award from Delon
RT.com, May 16 2019

Pindo SJWs incensed at the Cannes Festival’s intent to honor Alain Delon have started a petition to stop it, citing the legendary actor’s “closed-minded” views. The festival and the French public were not amused. Cannes organizers have held firm in their intent to honour the actor, now 83, with a Palme d’Or for lifetime achievement. One of the most prestigious European film festivals kicked off this week with posters of Delon from his 1960s heyday as a sex symbol. The decision is not sitting well with some feminists and #MeToo activists, who have started a petition declaring that “no amount of good acting can neutralise such a close-minded vision of the world. There is no place in such an important event for racists, sexists and homophobes.
Actress Carole Raphaelle Davis, the co-founder of #MeToo France, told the Daily Beast:

Alain is an old, depressed ex-movie star who goes on TV shows and spouts misogynistic and homophobic insults. Cannes should ditch the old white guy syndrome and honor a woman, not a sexist homophobe.

Activist Melissa Silverstein of Women and Hollywood was likewise outraged, saying:

He hits every single button, embodying (values) everyone in the world agrees are not values we want to have any more. You’d think French people would be up in arms about this, it is so tone-deaf!

The French do seem to be up in arms, against Pindo SJWs attempting to thought-police their film festivals and meddle in their cultural affairs. Comments on social media appear to be overwhelmingly pro-Delon and angry at attempts from overseas to impose “political correctness” on Cannes. literary critic Eric Naulleau, declared:

Never has the Hollywood of today so closely resembled yesterday’s Hollywood, when McCarthyism and witch-hunting were rampant. Fuck the PC!

Thierry Frémaux, ‘general delegate’ of the festival, also defended the decision to honor Delon, saying at a press event on Monday:

Today it is very difficult to ­reward or honour or recompense anyone because the political police then falls on you. People are free to express their views. Alain Delon was entitled to say what he did. We need to have things in context. In any one person’s life there are many contradictions. We’re not giving him the Nobel Peace Prize. We are giving the honorary Palme d’Or for his career as an actor. He has said certain things, and he is entitled to express his views.

Among the sins Delon’s detractors hold against him are speaking out against immigration, expressing sympathies for Marine Le Pen’s Rassemblement National, and opposing homosexual couples adopting children.

    Actually, the French means ‘Never has the Hollywood of today so closely resembled yesterday’s Hollywood’

    The feminazis were the second-wave radical feminists who derailed both ‘Old Left’ & ‘New Left’ at the end of the 1960s and substituted gender as primary contradiction driving all of history, possibly cos they read engel’s “origins of the family, private property & the state” without reading anything else.

    Felix Niesche was active in French radical groups at the time & has made it his theme how feminism subverted any meaningful radicalism in the 1970s.
