  • Le Pen: ‘We must expel criminal migrants to protect France’

    Westmonster ^ | 11/3/17
    French firebrand Marine Le Pen has hit out at soaring migrant rapes in France and has called on the government to ‘expel illegals to protect the French’. “I want to shed light on the multiplication of crimes that are revealed in our country, which are the result of migrants and which, obviously, once again, are minimised,” she said.“A young woman has been raped by a migrant, one more…this type of crime has multiplied in recent months in general indifference…If the prosecutor wants to smother the case, obviously, since it is a political instrument, he can do it, but me, my...

    To say that Donald Trump is a kind of American version of Jean-Marie and Marine Le Pen, the French populist leaders, has become a bit of a cliché. What is more interesting is what it means for where America is headed. But first, let us rehearse the case for Trump being the American Le Pen. We can check off the list. There is the rhetoric: the over-the-top nationalism (Trump calls for “America First,” Marine Le Pen’s consigliere wants to rebrand her National Front party as “The Patriots”), the xenophobia, as distinguished from sensible immigration restrictionism, complete with not-so-naked ethnic appeals...

    Marine Le Pen, President of France’s Front National has emerged victorious from the second round of voting in her northern French constituency of Pas-de-Calais, exit polls are indicating this evening. Beating President Emmanuel Macron’s candidate, Anne Roquet, Le Pen will have succeeded in her personal gamble of winning a parliamentary seat following defeat in the French presidential race, an outcome which had raised questions about her leadership of the nationalist movement founded by her father, Jean Marie Le Pen. Le Pen, will enter the Assemblée nationale for the first time during the next parliament, and promises to be a thorn...

    When we hear the name Le Pen in relation to French politics it’s most often a reference to Marine Le Pen, the losing candidate in the recent presidential elections. But this is something of a family business and the latest headline has to do with her niece, Marion Marechal-Le Pen. She was the youngest woman elected to the legislature since the French Revolution and has been widely viewed as more of a rival to her aunt than a teammate because of her distinctly more socially conservative views. Her time in the political spotlight is over now, however, at least for...

    Red Alert Politics ^ | May 8, 2017 | By Robert Petrosyan
    By now, everyone has had a full day to view and process the results of the 2017 French presidential elections. In an election that upended the power of the top two political parties in France, which are Les Republicains and the Parti Socialiste, independent candidate Emmanuel Macron defeated Marine Le Pen of the Front National with 66 percent of the vote compared to Le Pen’s 34 percent. This victory by Macron, a pro-EU candidate who identifies as a centrist, upends a global trend of populism that began with Brexit and peaked at the election of President Donald Trump in the...

    National Review ^ | May 7th, 2017 | Andrew Stuttaford
    Macron’s impressive win (now looking like 65.8/34.2) in the French presidential election was, I suspect, more than anything else a vote against Le Pen. Predictably enough, however, the usual suspects are claiming that it was a vote for ’Europe’ (by which they mean even deeper integration within the EU). Not really. That said, I have no doubt that Le Pen made an uphill struggle (her party is not, to put it mildly, without its baggage) even more difficult by her talk of quitting both the EU and the euro. The French may not love the EU, but that’s not the...

    Emmanuel Macron, the centrist and political newcomer, defeated far-right candidate Marine Le Pen Sunday to win the French presidential election. With all votes counted, the passionately pro-European Union Macron had garnered 66 percent of the vote to just 34 percent for Le Pen, who had promised a “Frexit” referendum should she win the election.

    PARIS — France on Sunday shrugged off the siren call of right-wing populism that enchanted voters in the United States and United Kingdom, rejecting anti-E.U. firebrand Marine Le Pen and choosing as its next president Emmanuel Macron, a centrist political neophyte who has pledged to revive both his struggling country and the flailing continent. The result brought to a close a tumultuous and polarized campaign that defied prediction at nearly every turn, though not at the end. Pre-election polls had forecast a sizable Macron victory, and he appeared to have delivered, with projections issued after polls closed showing him with...

    My fellow women sisters, what just happened today in France is a big blow (no pun intended) for our cause. A total travesty. Please join me in sisterhood for a women's rights march on the famed Avenue des Champs-Élysées. We are going to take back our vaginas from the oppressive supporters of Macron who defeated Le Pen today. Le Pen did not break the glass ceiling today, thanks to all the misogynist, vagina-grabbing men who voted for Macron.

    Congratulations to Angela Merkel being elected leader of France!!! I framed it that way on Facebook, and I'm just thinking we should absolutely hammer the left with this meme. Basically don't even acknowledge the little cuck (what's his name?) even exists. Le Pen lost, and Merkel won, like she said. France would rather be ruled by a German. The Return of the Vichy government. etc. FReepers are clever, you can come up with some good stuff....just thought I'd throw this out there.

    The British-based betting firm Ladbrokes says Marine Le Pen is attracting 90 percent of the bets on the eve of the French presidential election, as people gamble that France is in line for an upset. The betting firm said Saturday despite the polls favoring her centrist rival, Emmanuel Macron, gamblers are putting money on the idea that France may be in line for a political shock similar to Britain’s decision to leave the European Union or Donald Trump’s victory in the U.S. presidential election.

    PARIS — Ever since Donald Trump proved last November that anything is possible in the topsy-turvy new world of Western politics, May 7 has been circled on European calendars with a mix of giddy anticipation and existential dread.To right-wing populists, the presidential election in France — a country scarred by unemployment and terrorism — seemed to offer the next big opportunity to remake the postwar global order in their own nationalist, nativist and protectionist image. To the mainstream, it looked like a possible third strike after Trump and Brexit — one with the potential to doom the European Union, NATO and...

    Emmanuel Macron was elected president of France on Sunday with a business-friendly vision of European integration, defeating Marine Le Pen, a far-right nationalist who threatened to take France out of the European Union, early projections showed. The centrist's emphatic victory, which also smashed the dominance of France’s mainstream parties, will bring huge relief to European allies who had feared another populist upheaval to follow Britain's vote to quit the EU and Donald Trump's election as U.S. president. The 39-year-old former investment banker, who served for two years as economy minister but has never previously held elected office, will now become...

    After a tumultuous election campaign filled with scandal and surprises, the French public began to vote on Sunday on whether a pro-European Union centrist or an anti-EU, anti-immigration far-rightist will lead them for the next five years. Opinion polls indicate they will pick Emmanuel Macron, a 39-year-old ex-economy minister who wants to bridge the left-right divide, resisting an anti-establishment tide that has seen Britons vote to leave the EU and Americans choose Donald Trump as U.S. president. But should an upset occur and National Front candidate Marine Le Pen win, the very future of the EU could be on the...
