RE: Marine Le Pen is winning in France.
I think the Democrats were scared off by the Michael Foot effect.

Foot, a veteran MP since the end of WWII, finally became leader of the UK Labour Party in the early 1980s. His left-wing agenda and scruffy-git appearance led to a massive defeat for the party in the 1983 election, despite the country being in the grip of the aftermath of a Tory recession and having massive unemployment and wage deflation under Thatcher's lunatic policies.

History is the lies of the victors coupled with the delusions of the defeated. It is an imagined certainty created at the point where the imperfection of memory meets the inadequacy of documentation.

In other news, some internet trolls are trying to get Alternative Fur Deutschland elected in Germany.

That would be ... symbolic ... to put it mildly.

Is there a right-wing wave sweeping over the West? Can we blame Angela Merkel for this?

Do they make fake fur coats?

The cancer of fascism is spreading like a wildfire.

The Right threw everything they could at him.

The Left threw everything they could at him.

They mocked him and tried to discredit him. His own party undermined him.

And yet he still would have wiped the floor with Trump if his own party (the Democrats) had seen sense, listened to the people, and made him their nominee.

The Left should be looking at Bernie Sanders and copying their future strategy from him. I'm sure Bernie wouldn't mind. But, for a multitude of reasons, that isn't going to happen.

Quotes by Marine Le Pen.

She isn't crazy. She is very clever.

And she takes truths that everyone can see, but which her opponents are denying, and mixes them with xenophobia and nationalism.

She didn't rise from a vacuum. The political mainstream made her the force that she is. In a hypothetical France where the political mainstream addressed the genuine concerns of the people, she would be nothing.

RE: Marine Le Pen is winning in France.
I am still waiting for all the American celebrities who said they would move to Canada if Trump won to come to Canada. I am sure they would love to pay our higher tax rates and all that extra revenue might be used to help with all the refugees that are coming illegally from America. Could someone make a list? I am sure these people would like to be reminded. Maybe I could also write to my MP and the immigration minister to help speed up the process of celebrity migration to Canada.
