The People of France Must Choose: Le Pen or the Second French Revolution

Yesterday, the people of France voted for their next President. Unlike our electoral system in the United States, French elections take place in rounds, because there are more than the two de facto parties. Yesterday was round one, which eliminated all but two candidates: Emmanuelle Macron and Marine Le Pen.

Macron won 23.9% of the votes, and Le Pen won 21.4%. That makes it sound like they are neck-and-neck, but in reality, Macron is far in the lead. This is because both Fillon (19.9%) and Mélenchon (19.6%), the candidates for Les Républicains & La France insoumise respectively, immediately endorsed Macron. Projections have Macron winning at 66% in the second round of elections, which will take place on May 7th.

Now that we have some context, let us watch the acceptance speeches of the two frontrunner candidates in the French elections:

Le Pen says, “It is time to free the French people from arrogant elites who want to dictate their behavior because, yes, I am the candidate of the people. I send an appeal to all the honest patriots, no matter where they come from, no matter their origins and whatever their history, no matter who they voted for in the first round, to join me.”

Conversely, Macron speaks about the “nationalists’ threat” – to the nation of France. He speaks in empty platitudes, as any banker-turned-politician would. And as only the slimiest Rothschild puppet would have the gall to do, he ends by exclaiming the nationalist slogans that created France in the Revolution: “Vive la republique! Vive la France!”

A Rothschild banker who has vowed to restore the elite of France, a closet homosexual and sham husband to his drama teacher (24 years his senior, by the way), a traitor devoid of any sense of patriotism: this is the puppet being paraded by the globalist elite existentially invested in the survival of the European Union and the continued subjugation of the French.

Macron

And certainly, the people can often be fooled by the mass media to the point that such a transparent fraud as Emmanuelle Macron might pass as a lukewarm champion of French interests. After all, how many people were fooled by both Clintons, both Bushes, Bernie Sanders, and Bill Weld?

But despite all the influence of the mass media, despite the generations of brainwashing, we would think that a terrorist attack in Paris a mere three days before the election would be enough to shock the French people awake so that they cast their votes for the only nationalist leader on the ballot.

And yet, as we have already seen, Macron took the lead.

Migrant camps in the streets and the countryside; riots in the cities; assaults on law enforcement by the Antifa; a terror attack in the Champs-Elysee: you might think that any one of these circumstances would ensure the election for Le Pen. But look to the situation in the Netherlands just last month. In the week preceding the election, the President of Turkey promoted riots in the streets, made inflammatory statements about Turks breeding out Europeans in their own homelands, encouraged all manner of subversion – and Wilders still lost the election.

If Le Pen loses as well, it is time to admit that democracy has failed. If Le Pen loses, there must be bloodshed, or France and Europe are at an end.

Without exaggeration or hyperbole, the stakes are existential. If France elects Le Pen, the European Union is doomed, and the tides in Europe turn in favor of the European people. If France elects Macron, the European Union may well survive – along with all the parasitic superstructures and its bankers & bureaucrats – but France and Europe are both doomed.

Le Pen has a quarter of the population of France unquestionably on her side. She may not be a general, but she is a leader, and the people will rally behind her. If the election is not won, there must be Revolution. Now is the time, not ten years down the road.

President Trump remarked yesterday: “Very interesting election currently taking place in France.”

“Interesting” is the understatement of the century. On May 7th, the great nation of France must have Le Pen, or it must have a second Revolution.

And if they refuse to make the choice, then France deserves its inevitable death as both a nation and a distinct, proud people.
