Throughout the French election, I have not said much about Marine Le Pen. And except for a post last week about Barack Obama sticking his Nosy Parker nose into the election, I haven’t said much about the French Election at all.
Part of that is I’m not French and I don’t live in France. And as an outsider, anything I might say is pure conjecture.
Though, I admit, I love Marine Le Pen’s moxie.
It’s refreshing to see a woman candidate whose campaign is something far more substantive than Identity Politics and pandering to special interests groups.
I doubt Marine Le Pen would ever play the victim because of her gender. Unlike the hapless and corrupt Hillary Clinton.
And the footage I’ve seen of her campaign rallies is inspiring — so much patriotism and national pride.
After yesterday’s first round of voting, I was thrilled to see Le Pen make the cut.
To me that’s a good sign.
Maybe the French aren’t so far gone after all.
I have little confidence that Germany can pull itself out of the death spiral it is in. And as someone with family still living there, that’s difficult for me to admit.
But Le Pen’s rise makes me hopeful for the future of France.
France is our oldest ally. They joined with us in our fight for Independence. In fact, the town in Central New York where I was raised is named after the Marquis de Lafayette – the French General who fought beside us in the Revolutionary War.
And make no mistake about it. What is happening in France today is a revolution of sorts. A revolution to free that nation from that deathly stew of Globalism and Islamism.
Le Pen making it past the first round leaves me cautiously optimistic.
But round two won’t be easy.
The entrenched Globalists don’t take kindly to their power being threatened.
And Le Pen threatens them. But not just Le Pen. The French people who support her are a direct threat to them as well.
And just like with Brexit in the UK and Trump here in the US, Marine Le Pen will be brutally attacked, slandered and vilified – as will those French citizens who support her.
And at the risk of offending my French readers – of which, surprisingly, there are many — your nation’s leaders have a history of caving under pressure. It happened with Nazi Germany and again with the European Union. And it is happening now with the Islamization of Europe.
Please don’t take that as a sanctimonious attack. We have the same problem here. After all, we just lived through eight years of Barack Obama’s capitulation and appeasement.
Even after the horrific terrorist attack in Paris at the end of 2015 nothing was done to stop the influx of radical Islamists and supposed “migrants.”
Macron wants this appeasement of Islamism to continue. He is the candidate of the Globalists who seek to strip France of its sovereignty.
And his election would seal the fate of France – much like Merkel has sealed the fate of Germany.
While this may benefit the EU and the Globalists, it will be the death knell of the French people.
And when your civilization and way of life are threatened with extinction, you have two choices. Fight back or surrender to inevitable decline.
Macron has surrendered.
Le Pen wants to fight.
And the fact that she pushed through to the second round leaves me hopeful that the French people want to fight as well.
