    Meeting in Prague, right-wing leaders from across Europe have praised Austria's anti-immigration party joining the new coalition government. The politicians are seeking to build cooperation among populists. Meeting under the banner of the Movement for a Europe of Nations and Freedoms (MENL) the conference was hosted by Tomio Okamura, whose anti-Islam and anti-EU Freedom and Direct Democracy (SPD) party won 10.6 percent of the Czech vote in October's parliamentary elections. "In Europe or in our country people should behave as European or he should leave," said Okamura, who was born in Japan to a Czech mother and Japanese-Korean father.  "We...

    Marine Le Pen's political awakening came at the age of eight, when she survived a bombing at her family's Paris home. Five kilograms of dynamite had been placed on the landing outside the apartment at 9 Villa Poirier. The explosion ripped open the entire front of the building. A baby in the next-door flat fell five floors and was saved by the branches of a tree. In her autobiography, the woman who took over the leadership of France's National Front (FN) from her father describes the chaos, the smoke and debris. She and her two sisters “were on our knees...

    NANTERRE/PARIS (Reuters) - French far-right leader Marine Le Pen accused banks on Wednesday of closing accounts that belong to her and her party, saying she has been the victim of a "banking fatwa" meant to silence her National Front. The 49-year-old is smarting from defeat in presidential and parliamentary elections this year, during which she already accused French banks of being politically biased for not giving loans to finance her campaigns. "This is an attempt to suffocate an opposition party and no democrat should accept that," Le Pen told a news conference, calling on President Emmanuel Macron and other political...

    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...

    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...

    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.
