Protests have taken place in France against the victory of the Front National in the European elections last weekend.

Police estimates have put the number of demonstraters at a mere 4,200 people in Paris, a small fraction of the 1.3 million people who took to the streets against the party in 2002 following a strong performance in the presidential elections that year.

One protester said “it’s important to get the message across to everybody that it’s okay to vote against the system but you must do it intelligently. People must not forget that behind their euroscepticism there’s a xenophobic side to them, made up of fear and rejection of difference. That’s completely absurd in French society.”

Since taking over at the helm from her father, Marine Le Pen has transformed the image of party once tainted by its association with anti-Semitism. She has marginalised veteran members of the Front National and has punished racism. Despite still maintaining an anti-immigration platform, Le Pen has focused her debate on the problems of the European Union.

    “In France, exit polls suggested that anger over immigration played a larger role than economic worries in the far-right National Front’s upswing.” (NYT, May 26)
    ===
    We are approaching such a “tipping point” in the U. S. over immigration, and not a minute too soon.

    • M.Magog

      The administration is going completely rogue. It is ignoring all of the laws, it is trying it’s hardest to do as much damage in the time it has left. IT is showing complete malice and intent to destroy America. IT is at times like this that the military needs to step in and take over. I predict that the administration will escalate and make this a necessity.

        And why wouldn’t he when he has full cover from the Alien owned media who shares more guilt than Obama as they have promoted this for 50 + years.

    • Pro_Whitey

      I sure hope so, but if there’s going to be any tipping, it has to start in the GOP primaries, and it will only happen if Jeff Sessions runs and does not wimp out on the issue.

      • E_Pluribus_Pluribus

        Jeff Sessions may be the only hope for the GOP. I can’t think of any other potential candidates at the senatorial/governor level who has not already compromised himself/herself in some way on immigration.

    • sulbernick

      Same here in Britain. The anti-establishment party UKIP is anti European Union and also anti-immigration. Of course it emphasises its non-racist credentials – but then it is typically British and thus disingenuous. I still voted for them in the EU election though.

  • TruthBeTold

    “People must not forget that behind their euroscepticism there’s a
    xenophobic side to them, made up of fear and rejection of difference.
    That’s completely absurd in French society.”

    The EU was sold to Europeans on the premise that it would smooth economic matters by harmonizing rules and regulations. What they weren’t told was that it would also involve flooding their countries with non-native populations.

    The people of EU nations have every right to be ‘euroskeptics’. They were lied to and they should be fightin’ mad.

    • bilderbuster

      The only thing that’s completely absurd is the idea of flooding Europe with non Europeans and expecting that even with your fellow travelers controlling the lying media that the people wouldn’t notice what is before their very eyes.

  • The Communist Party of France was part of this, or what’s left of the Communist Party. They’ll never forgive the FN for stealing the CP’s voters and offering its voters, who turned out to be working class white populists, a better option, and exposing the Commies’ shell game.

    • SentryattheGate

      I believe it is Communism whose policy it is to flood First World Countries with Thurd Worlders; divide and conquer! Diversity divides the people, makes for social unrest, and dumbing down First World people so they will sacrifice their rights and their higher standard of living!

  • M.Magog

    The left, it’s not so “hip” anymore

    • TruthBeTold

      Let’s hope so. Unfortunately, they never seem to completely disappear.

    “there’s a xenophobic side to them, made up of fear and rejection
    of difference. That’s completely absurd in French society.”

    So according to this genius it’s absurd in French society to prefer that France be made up of actual French people. What’s absurd to me is the assumption that you can have a French society with out actual French people to maintain it.

    • M.Magog

      “there’s a xenophobic side to them, made up of fear and rejection
      of difference. That’s completely absurd in French society.”

      Why was it not absurd when the French went to wars with England, and then later Germany?Is this a recent phenomenon where the French want France to be for the French?

    • jane johnson

      Why must lefties always characterize any rejection of their agenda as having “fear” as a component? Fear has nothing to do with it, and the implication that the desire to preserve one’s birthright is somehow cowardly is as disingenuous as it is insulting.

      • Pro_Whitey

        To me, to call something a phobia, you have to have concluded that the fear involved is objectively unreasonable. The fear of muslim, African, and gypsy immigration is quite reasonable, and if anything has been slow in developing. But I’m not going to hold my breath waiting for the left to stop lying and misusing terms.

  • M.Magog

    “Police estimates have put the number of demonstraters at a mere 4,200 people in Paris, a small fraction of the 1.3 million people who took to the streets against the party in 2002 following a strong performance in the presidential elections that year”….

    The people spoke when they voted, and they are continuing to speak by their absence at these protests. The left just does not want to hear it.

  • IstvanIN

    Excellent news!

  • M.Magog

    “Their election does not represent us! The reactionary forces won’t pass”

    well French Marxists, you are right, the election did not represent YOU, it represented the majority of the French people. The forces are acting in the interests of the French people, that is not reactionary.

  • Bibibibibib Blubb

    You guys do realize that FN has non white people in it right?

    • HJ11

      Such may be a necessary evil as the White revolution gains steam.

    • Pro_Whitey

      Using the left’s tactics of blowing smoke (or squid ink, whatever you prefer) is quite acceptable in my book. If they sincerely support FN even if it might not be in their group’s best interest, all the better. I think such a position would be the sign of refreshing independence of mind, like a homosexual who realizes there is no good in joining in the trashing of real marriage and families.

    • bilderbuster

      Yes, but both of them have jobs.

  • Go, Ms. Le Pen. Drive the nails into the coffin of the EU. Make the power elites lie awake at night, too afraid to sleep. And when you meet the piece of excrement, Obama, at some diplomatic function, well, I’m sure you’ll know exactly how to confront him. Call Putin, he’ll give you some advice if you need it.

    I’m lovin’ the possibilities here, folks. Putin, Le Pen, Farage, and who knows who else, right in Obama’s face. It’s like a dream come true.

    • Caucasoid88

      You forgot the West Point Class of 2014. And basically every white person in the US Armed Forces, the people Obama thought he could pawn at will.

    • So CAL Snowman

      UKIP is a joke, it reminds me of Whites who listen to Alex Jones.

      • Ahnenerbe ᛟ

        UKIP was contrived to stop the BNP and FN is kosher. In reality the best option would be a full on flood of immigrants to throw Europe into a state of violence and revolutions. Stopping the flow now will still leave millions upon millions of racial aliens to integrate. UKIP, FN neither calls for expulsion

  • Comming to the U.S soon. Personaly Im looking forward to it. Perhaps we can tame and domesticate some of the hethin mentality. Wild animals have no room in a civilized country.
    when an wild animal dose find its self in a civilized town or city they must be caged and displayd, if possable domesticated, if they are too unruly you must euthinize them.

  • Einsatzgrenadier

    During a 1962 press conference, the French president Charles de Gaulle said:

    I have never personally, in any of my statements, spoken of a “Europe of nations,” although it is always being claimed that I have done so. It is not, of course, that I am repudiating my own; quite on the contrary, I am more attached to France than ever, and I do not believe that Europe can have any living reality if it does not include France and her Frenchmen, Germany and its Germans, Italy and its Italians, and so forth. Dante, Goethe, Chateaubriand belong to all Europe to the very extent that they were respectively and eminently Italian, German and French. They would not have served Europe very well if they had been stateless, or if they had thought and written in some kind of integrated Esperanto or Volapuk.

    But it is true that the nation is a human and sentimental element, whereas Europe can only be built on the basis of active, authoritative and responsible elements. What elements? The states, of course, for, in this respect, it is only the states that are valid, legitimate and capable of achievement. I have already said, and I repeat, that at the present time there cannot be any other Europe than a Europe of states, apart, of course, from myths, stories and parades.

    • jane johnson

      Sounds like something of a Federalist, doesn’t he?

      • Einsatzgrenadier

        De Gaulle was an opponent of supranationalism, especially that of the EU. He believed that Europe should become a confederation of autonomous nation-states. De Gaulle was very much like the BNP in terms of racial attitudes. He rejected multiculturalism and mass third world immigration, although he tolerated minorities as long as they stayed minorities. He believed that all European nation-states should remain white-majority, western democracies. He once said:

        It is very good that there are yellow Frenchmen, black Frenchmen, brown Frenchmen. They prove that France is open to all races and that she has a universal mission. But on the condition they remain a small minority. Otherwise, France would no longer be France. We are after all before all else a European people of the white race, our culture Greek and Latin, our religion Christian. . . . Try to mix oil and vinegar. Shake the bottle. After a bit, they will separate again. Arabs are Arabs, French are French. Do you believe that the French nation can absorb ten million Muslims, who tomorrow will be twenty million and the day after forty? If we adopt integration, if all the Arabs and Berbers of Algeria were considered as Frenchmen, what would prevent them from coming to settle in mainland France where the standard of living is so much higher? My village would no longer be called Colombey-les-Deux-Eglises, but Colombey-les-deux-Mosquées!

        • David Ashton

          Before all else, like the Anglo-Saxons just across La Manche.

        • M.

          To make his point a little clearer, “églises” means “churches”, and “mosquées” means “mosques”.

    • dd121

      Kind of makes you wish he were back.

    “it’s important to get the message across to everybody that it’s okay to vote against the system but you must do it intelligently. People must not forget that behind their euroscepticism there’s a xenophobic side to them, made up of fear and rejection of difference. That’s completely absurd in French society”.

    Not too bad, but the statement he gives is almost an Advertisement for the Front National.

  • Pro_Whitey

    Yeah, the FN is tainted with anti-semitism, unlike the muslims that the socialists import and breed by the millions. If it weren’t for the fact that Jews have inserted themselves at key points at the immigration pipelines and spigots to keep muslim immigration flowing, which bespeaks deeper disturbances in their thinking, I could just have a good laugh about it.

    • bilderbuster

      I liked her father much better but as for now Le Pen Light is a good start.

    • benvad

      Their objective is to keep the hatred focused on Backs & Magrebians. In the backlash of all of this the jews end up getting targeted by the people they helped.

  • dd121

    It seems only white people have been mislead by the left to think they shouldn’t protect their tribe. Others, like Mexicans think it’s all about their Raza.

    • baldowl

      The left isn’t targeting anyone but Whites, are they? Really, aren’t Whites the only ones with anything worth using to draw up the parasites?

      • freddy_hills

        The leftists targeting whites are mostly white themselves. The nonwhites targeting whites aren’t really leftists. They may both want the same thing — to flood white countries and redistribute wealth. But the white leftists want to take it from their own and give it to others. The nonwhites want to take it from others and give it to their own. That’s an entirely different thing.

        • benvad

          Non Whites = For Their Own

          Whites = For everyone But Their Own.

    “People must not forget that behind their euroscepticism there’s a xenophobic side to them, made up of fear and rejection of difference.”

    Reasonable fear is a sign of intelligence.
    Some people have a reasonable fear of gum disease, so they brush their teeth.
    Some people have a reasonable fear of heart disease, so they watch their cholesterol and exercise regularly.
    Cat, crossing the street in front of a moving truck, has no fear.
    If members of a particular group of the U.S. population had a fear of going to jail, they would commit less crimes.

    • Zaporizhian Sich

      Going to jail is a step up for them. Getting killed or being chained to a wheelchair for their violence against us is another story. They do fear their own deaths.

  • bilderbuster

    They love to lead by using obviously stupid slogans “Diversity is Our Strength” being a good example.

  • Magician

    We do read a beautiful news on AmRen every once in a while…. or a funny one.

    Oh ye of glass so half empty (not unlike mine right now)!

    This is awesome. This pathetic little gaggle of franco-eloi jibber jabbering in the streets like the dying parasites they are!

    Vive le France!

    Remember – glass half full! And mine’s now empty.

    “Since taking over at the helm from her father, Marine Le Pen has
    transformed the image of party once tainted by its association with
    anti-Semitism.” People really need to get over this kind of thinking. There is nothing inherently wrong about feeling like this. “Semitism” after all, is the cause of “anti-Semitism”. Put another way “…anti-Semitism isn’t some abstract created in a jew-less vacuum, but rather a product of jewish behaviour and interaction with non-jews.” Karl Radl on his blog Semitic Controversies. After 3 thousand years and scores of expulsions from cultures everywhere, Jews still can’t look in the mirror and admit that maybe, just maybe, that they’re doing something wrong.

    • dubium

      True.

      Another thing that is also true is that it is not up to OTHER tribes or the media to decide or approve what europeans should think about anything. Just as it is not up to europeans to decide what other tribes shall think about anything. If we want to have hostile feelings towards other for no good reason at all, that is up to us. That is our right, and our freedom. I am not saying it is like that, but if it was it is still our prerogative.

      Sure, if a belief is factually wrong, it can be challenged with facts. But you can not say to anybody “you must like me.” When i was in school there was many people i did not like, and many people that did not like me. With some of these there was reasons for this, good or bad reasons. But some people you just do not like for really no reason at all. You can still not go to them and say “you are not allowed to not like me” or “you must like me.” You just had to accept how it was. The only thing that maybe can change this is if you prove yourself to be likeable, or if the others prove it to you. That happened for me with some of these people as we grew older.

  • Sick of it

    Probably because Gypsies aren’t European.
