“Far-right” is a meaningless media smear term given to anyone they don’t like, i.e., anyone who opposes the globalist, socialist, pro-jihad agenda of the political and media elites. Marine Le Pen wants to save France as a free society in which citizens are safe to walk the streets. For that, they call her “far-right.” Wanting to defend one’s own country is now a “far-right” position. This actually amounts to a tacit admission that the media elites who affix this label to defenders of freedom are themselves frankly treasonous. The positions they stigmatize are simply those of basic national security.
“Far-right parties overtake Macron for first time in France poll,” by Adam Lusher, Independent, November 4, 2018 (thanks to Mark):
In a further sign of the rise of the far right across Europe, Marine Le Pen’s Rassemblement National (RN) has overtaken French president Emmanuel Macron’s La République En Marche! (LREM) party in a poll.
The Ifop poll of voting intentions for the May 2019 European Parliament elections showed the RN rising from 17 per cent at the end of August to 21 per cent now, moving ahead of the LREM on 20 per cent for the first time.
The RN’s 21 per cent, combined with the 7 per cent of Nicolas Dupont-Aignan’s Debout La France (Stand up France) party and one per cent each for Florian Philippot’s Les Patriotes and François Asselineau’s pro-“Frexit” Popular Republican Union gave far-right parties a combined 30 per cent total.
This was up five percentage points from 25 per cent of voting intentions at the end of August.
Sunday’s poll provides striking evidence that France has shifted towards the far right since Macron easily beat Le Pen, leading what was then known as the Front National, in the second round of voting in the 2017 French presidential election.
It also gives further cause to believe that the European Parliament elections in 2019 are shaping up to be a major battle between centrist, pro-EU parties such as Macron’s LREM, and far-right formations that want to stop immigration and globalisation….
In a spate of recent polls, Mr Macron has dropped so sharply in popularity that he dipped even below his much-derided predecessor, the socialist François Hollande.
