She’s better for Jews (and by default anyone else who loves liberty) and liberal democracy than anyone else running.
France: Le Pen Launches Presidential Campaign
“This election is a choice of civilization.”
Marine Le Pen, the leader of the anti-establishment National Front party, has officially launched her campaign to become the next president of France.
Speaking at a rally attended by thousands of her supporters in Lyon on February 5, Le Pen launched a two-pronged attack on globalization and radical Islam. She promised French voters a referendum on remaining in the European Union, and also to deport Muslims who are deemed a security risk to France.
Le Pen’s political platform is contained in a manifesto of 144 promises regarding immigration and global trade.
Polls show that Le Pen — who said the election of U.S. President Donald J. Trump “shows that people are taking their future back” — is one of the most popular politicians in France.
A February 2 Ifop-Fiducial poll for Paris Match, iTELE and Sud-Radio showed Le Pen with 24.5% of the vote, compared to 20% for François Fillon of the center-right Republicans party. In December 2016, Fillon, who has become engulfed in a corruption scandal, held a three-point lead over Le Pen.
