Marine le Pen


#141

They are all very French looking


#142

The taller lad 2nd from the left has a look of a slavic bouncer


#143

Trump has effectively endorsed the far right anti-semite and racist Le Pen.

Shit sticks together.


#144

So do snowflakes.


#145

Macron 23.7, Le Pen 22, fillon 20, Mellanchon 20.


#146

All over ?


#147

Macron will win in a landslide as the mainstream left and right will row in behind him.


#148

Dja think?


#149

Exit poll/ estimate


#150

A politician is the last thing you should be if you want to win an election these days.


#151

So only the far left candidate hasn’t rowed in behind Macron yet.


#152

The racists got a right toe in the hole after all their talk.


#153

Mr Macron is alumni of Rotchschild.


#154

#155

Le Pen “temporarily stepping down as leader of the Front National”.

Utterly bizarre stuff and as cynical a move as has been seen in politics anywhere for a long time.

But it’s a tacit admission of the toxicity of her fascist party. Her own fascist toxicity will remain.

I’m questioning all the talk about Le Pen’s support when your man that wants 100% tax on earnings over 33k is less than 2 points behind her.


#158

She’s increased her support by 4.5% over what her father got in 2002. That’s actually a pretty poor performance, given the attacks that have happened in the last year and a half that were supposedly her oxygen.


#159

Looks like she bled votes to Melanchon in the last few weeks alright - ultimately it’s all still largely the equivalent of what would have been a protest vote in circumstances where there was a clear winner from the traditional parties. Probably more accurate now to call it a vote for any kind of radical break from the status quo - in a lot of cases I suspect it doesn’t particularly matter to those voters if it’s labeled as being from the left or the right, or what the exact details of any of their policies are.


#160

Great to see that Paris, despite all that has gone on there, has unanimously rejected Le Pen and the politics of hate.
