Think this can’t happen here? The trial balloons have already been set loose regarding Trump’s mental fitness and the use of 25th amendment. Let’s take a look at how the Conservatives are doing over in France regarding this issue.
They must be afraid Le Pen will run for President again, and win this time.
I’m not sure that many people in the USA care all that much about European politics —and perhaps even less about politics in France, and yet what is happening in France today is uncannily similar to the antics of the American left. Activities, by the way, that seem to demonstrate that the leftist movement is indeed one of global proportions. I would not be surprised to learn that the founder and financier of the so-called Open Society Foundation has a hand in the anti-Democratic/anti-Republican shenanigans unfolding in France today.
Marine Le Pen is a French politician and lawyer who serves as President of the National Rally Party (formerly known as the National Front). She is a member of the French National Assembly and the youngest daughter of the founder of the National Front, Jean-Marie Le Pen. She additionally serves as a regional councilor and a member of the European Parliament. In 2012, she placed third in France’s contest for the presidency, and in 2017 she placed second in the first round of elections. In certain American publications, Le Pen is regarded as among the world’s most influential people (2011, 2015, 2016) and ranked in Politico as the second-most influential member of the European Parliament.
Marine Le Pen may be described in several ways, but she is unmistakably pro-French. She received extensive media attention during her run for the presidency in 2010 when, during a speech at Lyon, she compared the blocking of public streets and squares within French cities, in order to accommodate Moslem prayer, with the Nazi occupation of France during World War II. She said, “For those who want to talk a lot about World War II, if it’s about occupation, then we could also talk about Muslim prayers in the streets, because that is occupation of territory. It is an occupation of sections of the territory, of districts in which religious laws apply. There are, of course, no tanks, there are no soldiers, but it is nevertheless an occupation and it weighs heavily on local residents.”
Naturally, the media did flip-flops and the Moslem’s who have come to believe that they are allowed to do anything they wish —because they are Moslems — rioted. Apparently, Le Pen is made of sand; she doesn’t care what Moslems think —or the press either, for that matter. She speaks directly to the French people. It is my belief that Le Pen wants to regain large swathes of French territory lost to the Moslem horde and it will be interesting to see whether she will eventually make it to the presidency.
It will be a rough road. In 2015, the French government instituted an investigation for “distributing violent images.” The images she publicized were pictures of the murder of American journalist James Foley —which came only a few weeks after jihadists murdered 130 people in Paris attacks (November 2015). Ah, but as a member of parliament, Le Pen has immunity from prosecution. No matter … her immunity was lifted in order for her to face trial for posting images that her political enemies claim will “incite terrorism, pornography, or harm human dignity.” Were she ever convicted for this crime, she could end up in jail for 3-years and face a hefty fine. Le Pen isn’t giving up, though …
“I thought I had been through it all: well, no. For having condemned Daesh [ISIS] horrors in tweets, the justice system is putting me through psychiatric tests. Just how far will they go?” Later on, Le Pen appeared on BFM-TV, a French 24-hour news broadcast stating, “Totalitarian regimes use such methods against opponents to make them look like their crazy.” She told reporters that she would not submit to such tests. “I’d like to see how the judge would try and force me to do it,” she said. Apparently, magistrates in France do have the power to order psychiatric tests —but Le Pen is having none of it.
Why did she share “horror pictures” of Moslem atrocities? She did it in response to a French journalist who drew a comparison between ISIS and her own political party. She later deleted the picture of James Foley after a request from his family to do so. She said that she had been unaware of the identity of the individual in the murder picture.
So, what is going on in France? I think it’s politics as usual. Le Pen represents the conservative right; her enemies are on the communist left. Her claim that she is being politically persecuted has been picked up by other European conservatives, as well … and they have rushed to her defense. While Le Pen is attempting to regain popular support after her defeat to President Macron in 2017, her party is facing separate legal inquiries into allegations over the misuse of EU funds.
There you have it, folks. The leftist assault on conservative (traditional) values is not just happening in the United States. I can only conclude that George Soros (and his minions) is a very busy little bee.
