After the French leader Emmanuel Macron recalled his envoys from Australia and the United States of America owing to a nuclear-powered submarine pact with Australia and the United Kingdom that was criticized by the American leader Joe Biden, French media are now reassessing everything about the U.S.
Some notable French personalities, including the French President, are rejecting the woke ideology that has been traded in from America because of a breakdown in relations between the countries. One of France’s leading magazines “Le Spectacle Du Monde,” ran a cover story with the title, ‘The suicide of America,’ in which it held responsible for the chaotic withdrawal from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan on a “woke” dictatorship and queried whether “the US empire was collapsing.”
A few kilometers from where American soldiers landed in Normandy, a “Tocqueville Conversations” of leading politicians, intellectuals, and journalists devoted a board to the United States’ woke culture. A few panelists appeared shocked by the trends they observed in US society, including supposed woke censorship by Facebook, Twitter, and other American tech giants.
He’s still sore over the submarine deal, but he does have a good point about woke culture racializing society. There’s not a good thing about CRT.

“woke culture” is Something Perilous
CEO of Agence France Presse Fabrice Fries and Ex-French PM Alain Juppe listened attentively to the panel. Last summer, Zenger News reported that Emmanuel Macron told Elle Magazine that “woke culture was rationalizing French society.” He said he saw that they’re becoming progressively racialized.
Moreover, many members of his administration have shared anti-woke opinions, including the French delegate “Minister for Gender Equality, Diversity and Equal Opportunities,” Elisabeth Moreno. In May, she said that the “woke culture” is something perilous, and they should not bring it to the French Republic.
The French condemnation of America because of a crack in France-US relations. Antony Blinken, the U.S. State Secretary, is lambasted to move to France coming week after The Commonwealth of Australia canceled an agreement to buy a French submarine to create a fresh Indo-Pacific regional security partnership with Britain and Washington.
