Wear ‘racist’ like a badge of honour, Bannon tells French far-right summit

Bannon praised Le Pen’s ambivalence over the left-right divide, saying “she described it perfectly”. The more pertinent political split, he said, is whether “you consider the nation state as an obstacle to be overcome or as a jewel to be polished, loved and nurtured”.

“What I’ve learned [visiting Europe] is that you’re part of a worldwide movement that is bigger than France, bigger than Italy, bigger than Hungary, bigger than all of it,” Bannon said to enthusiastic applause. “And history is on our side. The tide of history is with us and will compel us to victory after victory after victory!”

Marine Le Pen wins seat in French parliament

Far-right leader Marine Le Pen on Sunday won a seat in the French parliament, but her anti-EU National Front (FN) party faced disappointment, winning only four to eight seats, polls and party figures said.

The number of lawmakers, if confirmed, would be too small to form a parliamentary group which would give the FN a role in setting the agenda and win positions on committees.

Not with a bang but a whimper…

Secret plans to ‘protect’ France in the event of Le Pen victory emerge

L’Obs cited three anonymous sources with knowledge of the “save the Republic” plan, saying it was intended mainly to prevent serious civil unrest and to “freeze” the political situation by convening parliament in emergency session and maintaining the outgoing prime minister in office.

The magazine said the plan, known only to a small group of ministers, chiefs of staff and top civil servants, developed informally as Le Pen was climbing in the polls in the early part of the year.

Police and intelligence services were particularly concerned by the threat of “extreme violence” from mainly far left protestors in the event of a Le Pen victory as the country would have found itself “on the brink of chaos”.

Yes, Marine Le Pen’s Party Is Bad, But Islamization Is Worse

“…Le Pen’s opponent, Macron, has said nothing to indicate that he considers France’s Islamization a problem. On the contrary, if anything he’s an outspoken enthusiast for the Religion of Peace. According to former Le Monde journalist Yves Mamou, “Macron’s political movement has largely been infiltrated by Muslim Brotherhood militants.” Like the politicians in Stockholm who have done so much to drag Sweden down the drain, Macron has denied that his own country has a culture of its own that is worth defending: “French culture does not exist, there is a culture in France and it is diverse.”

Last October, after terrorist attacks in Paris and Nice, Macron, according to Reuters, “said…that France had sometimes made mistakes in unfairly targeting Muslims, suggesting the country could be less stringent in applying its rules on secularism.” Reuters quoted Macron verbatim: “No religion is a problem in France today.”

What Happened in France?

How could Marine Le Pen have lost in a landslide?

Why, after the Brits chose Brexit, and Americans chose Trump, did the Dutch fail Wilders, and the French fail Le Pen?

How could a country that has been hit by several major terrorist attacks in recent years, and that has undergone a more profound social transformation owing to Islamic immigration, vote for business as usual?

Wilders, buoyed by the Brexit and Trump victories, said that 2017 would be a “Year of the Populist.” So far, alas, it’s not turning out that way.

‘I will be at the head of this fight’: Marine Le Pen vows to carry on as she positions herself as the first force of patriotic opposition to ‘the globalists’

Marine Le Pen has vowed to carry on leading the fight against ‘the globalists’ by gathering together all those who ‘choose France first’.

But she said the name of her party Front National will have to change as she aims to carve out a new political force.

Le Pen delivered her concession speech less than 15 minutes after official exit polls confirmed her devastating defeat to Europhile Emmanuel Macron by 65 per cent to 35 per cent.

France is the latest country to back away from moral relativism

Unexpected groups, such as gay voters, back Le Pen for standing up for Western values

News outlets have been reporting as a curious oddity the fact that a sizable percentage of gay voters in France are planning to cast their ballot in support of National Front Leader Marine Le Pen on Sunday.

The presidential candidate held the support of one in five gay voters during the first round vote in April. This might not sound like a lot, but given the crowded field of candidates it actually made her the second pick for this demographic.

Oh No! U.S. Far-Right Activists Promote Hacking Attack Against Macron

After months of trying to move the political needle in favor of Marine Le Pen in the French presidential election, American far-right activists on Saturday threw their weight behind a hacking attack against her rival, Emmanuel Macron, hoping to cast doubt on an election that is pivotal to France and the wider world.

The efforts were the culmination of a monthslong campaign against Mr. Macron after his candidacy began to gain steam this year, with digital activists in the United States and elsewhere regularly sharing tactics, tips and tricks across the English- and French-speaking parts of the internet.
