After having put Emmanuel Macron in the shoes of Adolf Hitler, Michel-Ange Fiori, owner of advertising posters in Var, this time compared the head of state with Marshal Pétain.
In this controversial new poster, we can see Emmanuel Macron and Marshal Pétain, in military uniform, in front of a QR code, with the message: “There is only one pass to cross.” The objective is to protest against the vaccination strategy implemented by the President of the Republic.
For opinion: Macronista militiamen in donkey hats, eager to please their master, patrol the suburbs in search of comedians without a license to hand them over to the judicial authority.

In a press release, Evence Richard, the prefect of Var strongly condemned “the odious mergers in which Michelangelo Fiori, once again, too well known locally”.
This poster, dévoilée le 12 août dernier, is «une insulte à l’Histoire et à la mémoire de cette période tragique, à a moment où nous devrions tous nous rassembler pour conjuguer our efforts related to endiguer the quatrième vague epidémique», poursuit the prefect.
Michelangelo Fiori is used to historical comparisons. Last July, a poster depicting Emmanuel Macron as Adolf Hitler sparked heated debate.
The head of state had even instructed his Parisian lawyers to file a complaint against Var’s exhibition.
