Sick: Macron says Africa needs less children and not aid

France's youngest president just demonstrated why he's unfit for the job, and stunned plenty of people with his latest announcements:
French president Emmanuel Macron has stunned his left-liberal admirers by saying that Africa does not need more aid, as its problems are “civilisational” rather than financial.

Macron, who has won plaudits from establishment broadcasters and media outlets by positioning himself as a counter-weight to President Donald Trump’s conservative, populist-leaning administration in the U.S., triggered a furious response when he made the comments at the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany.

Asked by an Ivory Coast journalist how many G20 members would be willing to commit to an African Marshall Plan – referring to the post-war reconstruction funding programme for Europe – the Frenchman surprised listeners by saying he did not think this would be a viable solution to Africa’s problems.

“The Marshall Plan was a reconstruction plan, a material plan [for a stable region],” he said.

“The problems Africa faces are completely different … and are civilisational,” he went on.

“What are the problems? Failed states, complex democratic transitions, and extremely difficult demographic transitions.”

Macron was uncharacteristically direct in clarifying what these “demographic transitions” might be later on in his remarks, chiding countries which “have seven or eight children per woman”.

It is likely the Frenchman had in mind countries such as Niger, where at least 50 per cent of the population are reported to be 14 or under.

“As of today, spending billions of dollars outright would stabilise nothing,” he concluded, having also cited arms-smuggling, drug- and human-trafficking, and Islamic terrorism as issues beyond simple poverty which might be hobbling Africa.

The denunciation of Macron’s comments by left-liberal commentators was ferocious, with the remarks branded “racist” and familiar talking points centred on colonialism and slavery being advanced.
While his comments on Islamic terrorism are valid, what he's saying about the Black African countries, if anywhere, is revolting, and only proves he's bad for the black community. He should be ashamed of himself, but probably isn't. Macron owes the Black Africans an apology for his shameless comments.

Update: here's more on the fallout from his statements:
In unguarded comments following the recent G20 meetings, French President Emmanuel Macron chided African nations for having too many children, bringing an avalanche of accusations of racism crashing down upon his head.

As European nations languish with negative population growth, the French President blamed big families for Africa’s poverty and underdevelopment. Asked about the development of Africa at the G20 meeting in Hamburg, Macron pointed to the “7 to 8 children” African women are having as a “civilizational” problem demanding a solution.
But as Macron himself's made clear, men with viewpoints like his are the problem. And now he's brought a lot of anger upon himself coming from a lot of people with a better view of life than he's got. And it goes without saying that if he's a socialist, he's clearly the kind who can't admit the ideology of socialism is what's really causing problems around the world, along with Islamofascism, another ideology that incorporates socialism.
