As France wakes up to Islamic threat, ‘far right’ Le Pen surges

“Time’s up for denial and hypocrisy,” says Marine Le Pen, leader of France’s Front National political party. “The absolute rejection of Islamic fundamentalism must be proclaimed loudly and clearly.”

Le Pen and her party are routinely denounced by the establishment media and politicians throughout the EU as “far right” and “racist.” The demonization may have lost all traction, however, as two hostage situations play out, having a profound effect on French national consciousness. A report in Bloomberg Business Week by Angeline Benoit, Sandrine Rastello, and Caroline Alexander well sums up the fear gripping the establishment.

    I’ve been having good fun over at Dawg’s place with the levies who think Islam, like Buddhism and Christianity, is a race.

    M. Le Pen is, like Farage, telling a truth the political class cannot admit. That class has no idea how angry non-elites are.

    They are about to find out.

      Oh, the elites know that their debt and tax-peons hate them more every day. As long as they can fund their standing armies with money borrowed at 0.8 percent from Wall Street and the House of Saud for ten years, they have precisely no reason to care.

      In any nation, the people who control the money supply are the ones who make the rules. Right now, that’s not the French people.

    this useless politician can proclaim as loudly and forcefully as wants to, but until the Koran is revised (which it wont be except by force such as in Russia)the air coming out of her mouth is as useless as a fart in a windstorm
