Gilbert Collard (*) is a prominent member of the Rassemblement Bleu Marine (RBM), a political association and think-tank open to French citizens from all political horizons who support Marine Le Pen, distinct from her Front National (FN) political party. Collard has been an MP since June 2012. He was elected to the Assemblée Nationale at the same time as Marion Maréchal-Le Pen, a member of the FN and the niece of Marine LePen.
In the wake of the Bastille Day massacre in Nice, during the night from the 19 to the 20 July 2016, a debate took place in the National Assembly about extending the State of Emergency in France.
In the short video below, you see an extract of the speech by Gilbert Collard, as he railed against the socialist Hollande/Valls/Cazeneuve government.
Thanks go to Vlad for his work on this video.
The extension of the state of emergency for a further six months was finally passed by the National Assembly (489 votes for, 26 against).
Cynics and those who are entitled to be cynical say that this State of Emergency will now be maintained up to the Presidential Elections in 2017 so as to better control the conservative French people and prevent patriots from expressing dissent against this socialist Government which seems to be very much in the pockets of Saudi Arabia and Qatar.
(*) This first paragraph is a correction of the original article, added after the subtitling of the video which describes Gilbert Collard erroneously as a "Member of Le Front National".
