Marine Le Pen has won about 20% of the vote in France’s Presidential Elections. This means she will not win this election, but it does mean she is the third force in French politics and will be a formidable figure on the French political scene for the foreseeable future. It makes me smile when I read frothing lefties on sites like the Huffington Post, The Guardian and others hyperventilate about Le Pen, they just don’t seem to get what is happening to the world right now, and they really don’t understand what is happening in Europe.
Le Pen has garnered more support than her father did in 2002 when he qualified for the second round, he got just under 17%, his daughter has got 19-20%.
Also, American MSM, as to be expected are speechless with her result, they can’t seem to understand that French people would want to protect France, ‘Well there’s deep concern of course because no-one expected her to do quite that well. The opinion polls were putting her at about 12, 13, 14 per cent at most. To get around 20 is a big shock and it just shows the extremities to which people have gone in this election.’
The future seems to be bright for Le Pen, I do hope that she wins in 2017.
