One of the reasons as to why you’ll never find the Tundra Tabloids giving full throated support to the FN Le Pen group, and they only have themselves to blame. Jew haters are not to be trusted, not even with managing a dog pound.
The National Front’s dark underside
Rejection by Nigel Farage, head of Britain’s UKIP, and Morten Messerschmidt, lead candidate for the Danish People’s Party in the up-coming European elections effectively dashes Marine Le Pen’s hopes of presiding over an influential 7-country Eurexit group at the EU Parliament. The main issue is anti-Semitism.
PARIS. While granting that National Front leader Marine Le Pen has shown courage and perspicacity on some crucial issues, Nigel Farage says she has failed to rid the party of its endemic anti-Semitism.
In a mail to Dispatch International, MEP Morten Messerschmidt writes that from the beginning he has distanced himself from the National Front.
“As I read the party and its history, it has deep anti-Semitic roots. Regrettably it seems to attract support. This can only be explained by the fact that the other French parties have failed the French people, who only have the National Front to vote for if they want to express their criticism of the EU,” says Messerschmidt.
“At the election in 2009, Nicolas Sarkozy managed to appeal to EU-skeptical Frenchmen by criticizing the EU’s immigration policy and open borders. But today they have been forced into the arms of Le Pen. That is a bad omen for France and Europe. I will not cooperate with a party like the National Front,” says Morten Messerschmidt.
A review of material readily available in French lends credibility to Farage’s and Messerschmidt’s evaluation.
Midway between the Municipal and the European elections, National Front (Front National, FN) VP Florian Philippot says the FN is France’s number one party and Marine Le Pen will be president in 2017. For all the ballyhoo over the FN’s inexorable ascension, the party won a small handful of municipalities, none of its bigwigs were elected (including Philippot who ran for mayor of Forbach), and the opposition UMP (Union for a Popular Movement) inflicted an unprecedented defeat on the Socialists without any FN alliances.
