The people of France and the world have yet to recover from the horror of Islamic terrorists who murdered some cartoonists who committed the horrible crime of drawing the “wrong” pictures, but events in France now make clear that Muslims have the capacity to control the politics of Christians and Jews in France. Latest polls reveal that the right wing Marine Le Pen’s party has risen to the point where she now threatens to become the largest political force in France. Who is Miss Le Pen? Her father, Jean-Marie Le Pen years ago was a fanatical anti-Semite who denied there ever was a Holocaust, and blamed any and all problems in his nation on immigrant from North Africa. He was generally regarded as a nuisance extremist who obtained about 5% of the vote of those who hate. His daughter has revised the party and now agrees there was a Holocaust. She even has reached out to French Jews arguing that Muslims ARE the enemy of their nation.
Marine Le Pen’s rise in polls simply reflects the power of hate in the modern world. Her supporters would go by the name of Tea Party in America. They argue that getting rid of immigrants IS the problem of modern times. Of course, those immigrants are the ones who do the dirty jobs of society. Hopefully, her surge in votes is temporary and sanity will return to the French people. Then again, we Americans continue to be insane by voting for Tea Party haters.
