Le Pen Warns Hungarians: ‘Avoid the Fate of France’

“Take a good look around the world at what is happening now.”

Presidential candidate Marine Le Pen has warned Hungarians to avoid the fate of France by refusing to capitulate to mass immigration.

The National Rally leader made the comments during an interview with Mandiner.

“(Viktor Orbán) is not exaggerating at all. Eighty-five percent of French want to stop migration. If I could give one piece of advice to the Hungarians: take a good look around the world at what is happening now, and be careful not to get to the fate of France,” she said.

Le Pen has vowed to hold a national referendum which would put a halt to immigration if she wins next year’s presidential election.

The populist candidate said that her foresight on the problems mass immigration would lead to have been proven accurate.

Le Pen says nationalism will defeat globalism in interview with Hungarian press

In an attempt to hand back power to France, Le Pen says she is planning to implement a national referendum on immigration if she is elected

Despite a European Union placing enormous pressure on conservative-nationalist governments, Marine Le Pen, leader of the conservative National Rally (RN) said in an interview with Hungary’s Magyar Nemzet.

When asked who will win in the struggle playing out between nationalists and globalists, Le Pen said, “The nations, the nation-states. Because there are many, and because they were born along the ideology of freedom, because no people will ever accept to lose their right to self-determination. They will never accept European citizenship, a policy that harms them, for example in terms of security, or that prevents them from prospering. I am convinced that, like all empires, the European empire will lose in this battle.”

If elected president next year, Marine Le Pen, leader of the conservative National Rally (RN) would initiate a referendum on migration. The issue of migration remains perhaps the most contentious point of conflict between globalist and nationalist ideologies.

“Immediately after my election, I would call a referendum on migration. This document has already been prepared. The extremely detailed text includes a bill that will contain the full set of tools for combating immigration, regulating immigration, and which we will want to include in the constitution. It is also important that it takes precedence over European documents,” Le Pen said in the interview.

Marine’s Turn

“Le Pen is being taken very seriously by a nervous establishment before the 2022 election, and her popularity is a litmus test for European politics.”

What appalled the American deep state and its media courtiers about Donald Trump’s election victory in 2016 may have been dressed up as an ad hominem attack, but it had more to do with the fact that he did not come up through channels approved by America’s political class. Now France’s état profond is equally disturbed that another blond maverick—albeit blonde—has a good shot at the French presidential elections next year, but for different reasons. Politically, she makes Trump look tame.

Marion Anne Perrine Le Pen’s name is easier on the ear than “Donald John Trump,” although the feisty 52-year-old from the fashionable Neuilly-sur-Seine district of Paris is known as “Marine.” Her background as a lawyer suggests a standard-issue European politician, but European lawyers rarely join (although they often represent) organizations such as the Front National, as Marine Le Pen did at age 18. At that time her father, Jean-Marie Le Pen, was party leader, and was on record as saying that HIV sufferers should be segregated from society, President Chirac was being bankrolled by B’nai B’rith, and the French soccer team didn’t represent the nation as it contained too many black players. In offense terms, and to borrow a term from the French card game baccarat, this was une maison pleine. Full house. He left out only Muslims, and his daughter would more than make up for that oversight.

“We can’t take it anymore!” Le Pen calls to expel Islamism after latest terror attack

“We must come back to reason: support our police, expel the illegals and eradicate Islamism”, Le Pen wrote on social media shortly after the attack.

National Rally leader Marine Le Pen called for greater support for police and the eradication of Islamism in the wake of Friday’s terror attack which killed a female police worker.

A Tunisian migrant knifeman slit the throat of the administrative worker, named by police as 49-year-old Stephanie M, at a police station in Rambouillet on Friday afternoon, shouting “Allahu Akbar” as he murdered the mum-of-two.

Frontrunner to battle Emmanuel Macron in next year’s presidential election, Le Pen, expressed her “infinite sadness” for the victim and her family, and for “all policiers who, for weeks, have been insulted and defamed”.

“We must come back to reason: support our police, expel the illegals and eradicate Islamism”, Le Pen wrote on social media shortly after the attack.

Le Pen, Wilders salute German hard right advance

Le Pen hailed the AfD after its breakthrough score of 13 percent, enough for close on 90 seats, saying the party was a “new symbol of (the) reawakening of European peoples.”

Marine Le Pen, leader of France’s National Front (FN), and Dutch far-right leader Geert Wilders saluted the advance of Germany’s hard right AfD after the nationalists on Sunday became the third-largest party in parliament.

“Bravo to our AfD allies for this historic score,” tweeted Le Pen, defeated by Emmanuel Macron in the French presidential election run-off four months ago.

Le Pen hailed the AfD after its breakthrough score of 13 percent, enough for close on 90 seats, saying the party was a “new symbol of (the) reawakening of European peoples.”

Wilders, head of the Dutch Party for Freedom (PVV), also tweeted his congratulations.

“I congratulate @FraukePetry (joint-chair of the AfD)) and @AfD,” said Wilders, publishing a picture of himself alongside both Le Pen and Petry.

League of nationalists

All around the world, nationalists are gaining ground. Why?

After the sans culottes rose up against Louis XVI in 1789 they drew up a declaration of the universal rights of man and of the citizen. Napoleon’s Grande Armée marched not just for the glory of France but for liberty, equality and fraternity. By contrast, the nationalism born with the unification of Germany decades later harked back to Blut und Boden—blood and soil—a romantic and exclusive belief in race and tradition as the wellspring of national belonging. The German legions were fighting for their Volk and against the world.

All societies draw on nationalism of one sort or another to define relations between the state, the citizen and the outside world. Craig Calhoun, an American sociologist, argues that cosmopolitan elites, who sometimes yearn for a post-nationalist order, underestimate “how central nationalist categories are to political and social theory—and to practical reasoning about democracy, political legitimacy and the nature of society itself.”

It is troubling, then, how many countries are shifting from the universal, civic nationalism towards the blood-and-soil, ethnic sort. As positive patriotism warps into negative nationalism, solidarity is mutating into distrust of minorities, who are present in growing numbers (see chart 1). A benign love of one’s country—the spirit that impels Americans to salute the Stars and Stripes, Nigerians to cheer the Super Eagles and Britons to buy Duchess of Cambridge teacups—is being replaced by an urge to look on the world with mistrust.

I’m supporting Marine Le Pen, and if she fails this year, she will win in 2022 by Nigel Farage

Nigel Farage on Marine Le Pen.

For 18 years, I have sat in the European Parliament and looked on in wonderment at Jean-Marie Le Pen’s regular lunchtime table. Politics aside, when it comes to a good lunch with food, wine and company, he is certainly a true Frenchman.

At no point in time did I want Ukip to do a deal with the French National Front (FN). The party’s roots were deep in Vichy and I believed anti-Semitism was embedded in its DNA. All this made it the wrong place for Ukip to be. I’ve always seen Jean-Marie Le Pen as the modern-day Chauvin.

Then, in January 2011, an overwhelming vote of FN members saw Marine Le Pen become leader – beating Holocaust-denying Bruno Gollnisch. From the start, she wanted the FN to be more like Ukip than the BNP. I was told that this would be a nightmare for me.

Marine Le Pen SURGES in latest poll as Macron is blasted for first round celebrations (Video)

The French electorate are abandoning Emmanuel Macron after a series of gaffes have helped Marine Le Pen back in contention ahead of the presidency campaign, latest polls show.

Europhile Macron, who has previously vowed to go “tough” on the UK’s historic Brexit vote, has been roasted for seemingly swanning around Paris like he has already won the presidency.

An Elabe poll for BFM TV found that half of people surveyed considered that Ms Le Pen’s campaign had started well, compared with just 43 per cent for Macron.

Another found some 61 per cent of French voters think that Ms Le Pen is leading a successful second-round campaign, compared to 48 per cent for Mr Macron, according to a Harris Interactive poll for RMC and Atlantico published on Wednesday.

Mr Macron is the current frontrunner ahead of the second round of the French election but has been accused of complacency by both rivals and allies.

He was booed and jeered by striking factory workers during a chaotic campaign visit in northern France, marking a stark contrast with Ms Le Pen taking photographs with workers.

Marine Le Pen: ‘Mass Immigration Is Not an Opportunity for France, It’s a Tragedy for France’

Front National leader Marine Le Pen has declared that, following years of unrest, riots, and terrorism, “Mass immigration is not an opportunity for France, it’s a tragedy for France.”

“I will protect you. My first measure as president will be to reinstate France’s borders,” promised Ms. Le Pen, triggering enthusiastic applause and chants of, “This is our home!” from a patriotic crowd of 5,000 supporters waving the tricolour flag.

“The choice on Sunday is simple,” she said. “It is a choice between a France that is rising again and a France that is sinking.”

She denounced her opponents as merchants of “savage globalisation”, echoing her comments on major rival Emmanuel Macron in an interview with La Croix:

“I have always said that I’d like to be up against Emmanuel Macron in the second round because then the choice will be clear-cut,” she said. “He is an unashamed globalist who wants to speed up the total opening of borders, free-exchange, and the evisceration of France in favour of private and financial interests.

“I, on the other hand, propose a return to the nation-state, the most effective structure to ensure security, prosperity, and democracy, and to protect our identity.”

Ms. Le Pen urged her supporters to fight for that vision at her Paris rally, encouraging them to go try and persuade friends and relatives to lend her their vote amid rumours of record voter abstentions.
