As the election atmosphere in France reaches fever-pitch, Marine Le Pen has had yet another busy weak campaigning and making the headlines for all the right reasons.
Sticking to her principles on the issue of NATO, Ms. Le Pen has criticised what she sees as Donald Trump’s hypocrisy on the matter. This relates to Trump’s recent U-turn – one of many in the last week or so – in which he hosted the NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and declared the organisation ‘no longer obsolete’.
Proving once more that she is a woman of principle, Le Pen stated, ‘I am coherent, I don’t change my mind in a few days. He had said he would not be the policeman of the world, that he would be the president of the United States and would not be the policeman of the world, but it seems today that he has changed his mind.’
Furthermore, Le Pen declared she would stick to her ‘France first’ approach, explaining that she is ‘coherent in her analysis’ and ‘when something favours France I say so, when it doesn’t I say so too.’
This is the sort of intelligently nationalistic tone that so infuriates the European establishment. In the last week we have seen more evidence of their panic as the German President misplaced his ‘size 9s’ and waded into the election debate, pleading with French voters not to vote for the candidate that has their best interests at heart.
Europhile Frank-Walter Steinmeier was comically transparent in his appeal, saying to French voters that they must reject ‘those who promise you a great French future’, adding that taking France out of the European Union would amount to destroying their country.
Through what is on the surface, a puzzling statement, we can clearly see the real concern of these establishment elites; any nation that puts its own interests first – as any healthy nation should – is a threat to the New World Order project and institutions such as the European Union, which only serve the interests of elitist politicians and giant capitalistic shareholders.
But, Marine Le Pen has some criticisms of her own directed against those who seek to keep us down!
Papal Advocacy Of Open-Borders
This week, Marine Le Pen has boldly criticised the pope for his call for open borders, accusing him of demanding ‘that states go against the interests of their own people by not placing conditions on the acceptance of significant numbers of migrants’.
Furthermore, Le Pen accused the pope of meddling in issues that fall outside the remit of a religious leader. In an interview with La Croix International, the Front National leader remarked that his comment ‘falls within the realm of politics and even interference, since he is also a head of state’.
This open criticism of the pope’s meddling in European politics will potentially offend some of the more conservative Catholic voters of the French republic, but Marine Le Pen is speaking for many in her actions. The pope has brought shame of European Christendom with his calls for Marxist border policies and his ridiculous publicity stunts, in which he has kissed the feet of non-white invaders for some sort of perverse photo opportunity.
Overall, this has been a good week for Le Pen, a week that started with disaster as the lügenpresse attempted to smear the presidential front-runner with unfounded accusations of antisemitism.
The polls still place Ms. Le Pen firmly ahead of her establishment rivals Emmanuel Macron and Francois Fillon. Her second round chances are increasingly looking more promising, too, with far-left candidate Jean-Luc Mélenchon gaining ground on both centrist Macron and Thatcherite Fillon – the strong Euro-sceticism and popular brand of left-wing economics espoused by both Mélenchon and Le Pen suggest that the former’s voters will either abstain or transfer to the latter in the second round.
What is a certainty amongst the present speculation and hypothesis is that Marine Le Pen truly is the last hope of the French republic. Should she lose this election, the French people will have signed their national and demographic suicide and the republic will be past the point of no return.
