Which one of the klan grannies voted for Le Pen?

French gays are voting for Le Pen.

Le Pen stands to the left of Macron economically.

Identity left policies, frankly, are not important to the majority that is struggling with price gouging, low wages, housing crises, uncontrolled immigration and threat of radical Islam. They can even be irritating and off putting.

France's far right National Rally party was seen leading the first round of parliamentary elections with around 33% of votes, according to exit polls.

Pollsters IFOP, Ipsos, OpinionWay and Elabe found the left wing New Popular Front coalition was seen coming in second with around 28.5%.

President Emmanuel Macron's centrist bloc was in the third spot with between 20.5-23%.

Maybe the left and Macron can form a coalition? Does it work that way in France?

by Anonymousreply 10June 30, 2024 9:21 PM

The left despises Macron. But maybe they’ll have to.

There’s something Vichy going on here…

That’s what happens when you continuously ignore concerns about mass immigration and paint them as racist and ignorant.

he prospect of a far-right government – which would be France’s first since the collaborationist Vichy regime during World War II – has spurred Macron's Ensemble alliance and the left-wing New Popular Front into action. After a week of political bargaining, hundreds of candidates stood down in particular seats to try to deny the RN an absolute majority.

Whatever the result of Sunday’s vote, France seems set to endure a period of political chaos, with Macron unable to call another parliamentary election for at least a year.

The campaign has already been marred with violence. Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin said Friday that 51 candidates and campaigners had been assaulted on the campaign trail, leading to some being hospitalized.

Some of us talk like crude ugly nationalism is only happening here in America, and if you just get out of here and move to Europe it's all calm gentle tolerant people.

Or paint them as "crude ugly nationalists". See post R15.

R12, Bravo!

Fair point R16. I forget that parts of Europe have been dealing with an influx of Muslims who do not share European values at all.

Le Pen finished third in a two-horse race, fucking hell. The "far-right surge in Europe" is officially DEAD to me.

by Anonymousreply 22July 7, 2024 6:06 PM

The French left saw the danger and closed ranks. Hopefully American libs have enough wisdom to do the same in November.

When you ignore the media hype and get your asses out and vote, it IS possible to prevent a far-right, extremist takeover and preserve democracy.

Vive la France!
