Bracing for possible Le Pen ‘nightmare’

Two weeks before the French cast their first presidential ballots, the spectre of victory for the far-right leader who promises to crack down on immigration and outlaw gay marriage sends shivers down many a spine.

Reminiscent of the runup to Trump’s election last year, many artists have said they would prefer exile to living under Le Pen. Like Americans virulently opposed to Trump, they say they are looking to Canada as a refuge.

    A Macron victory means France will get even more socialism, faggotry and Mohammedans than under Hollande. That’s the nightmare.

    Why do all these idiot lefties want to infest Canada.

    • PaulW

      There’s a certain logic to it. Since PE Trudeau, Canada has drifted decidedly Left and with his son in office, this tendency to embrace socialism and “progressive” ideas (in other words, rot and decline) has become much more pronounced. Evidently, Canada has developed a bit of an unwholesome Leftist reputation around the world.

        I feel so alone at times. Being from NovaScotia and being on the Right. Kind of like, whats wrong with mostveveryone? Why cant they see what i see? Sometimes i wish my forefathers hadve got on board a ship bound for the USA instead.

      Canada needs to ask: “why does every nut-case leftist in the world want to move HERE when their homeland smartens-up and doesn’t go hard left?”
      I’m almost serious.
      No lefty in Sweden gets mad at the success of the Social Democrats in an election and threatens to move to Texas.

    It’s only a nightmare if the top quality you look for in a leader is that their main goal in life is virtue signaling. That would also explain why they see Canada as a refuge.

    It would be absolutely stunning is she won this time, considering the zero chance that very knowledgeable commentators gave her not long ago. Even a second place would portend future success.

    You Socialist French clowns might change your mind about coming here when Kellie Leitsch becomes the next PM. 2019, LePen in France, Trump in the USA and Leitsch here in Canada. Good times.

      I agree!

  • Barrington Minge

    Go girl!!

  • canminuteman

    I think they could make better use of their time preparing for the nightmare that is coming if le pen doesn’t win.
