Social Matter - National Front's Missed Golden Opportunity

New essay up at Social Matter. I cover the golden opportunity that was presented LePen with this year's election and how advisors going back to 2012 pulled her leftward, ruining the framing for this year. As Americans that voted for Trump are upset about the Kushner + Goldman crowd pulling Trump in an odd direction, LePen had a cabal of advisors pull her to the left. All it takes is one advisor placed high enough for the entire game to change.

No one wants Houellebecq's Submission to happen not because it is horrific, it is, but because the Islamization of France would not have an end result as portrayed in the book. Beirut was once called the Paris of the Middle East. No one wants to see Paris become the Beirut of Europe.

In the west, seemingly the worst thing you can be considered is a racist. A lot of people may want immigration to end but it doesn't necessarily mean people will step up when its needed. People would rather fruitlessly pine for the "acceptable" political parties to address the issue. Maybe they hope deep down that immigrants will just stop coming on their own or assimilate. Maybe they hope that the immigrants just stick to their designated banlieues and as long as they're contained there, there is nothing to worry about. These options are considered more palatable than degrading themselves by voting for the National Front.

I don't have much faith that the French will step up via democratic means. Historically Europe, especially France, has always been a tinderbox. Despite regular cultural enrichment, there might be just the wrong event to where things will ramp up and the French will take matters into their own hands. It may not even be a "French 9/11", it could be something that has happened to the French multiple times. So yeah, I'm thinking France will handle social change the way they have been for about the last 200-250 years.

The National Front, like virtually all European political parties since Bismarck, is a socialist party. It differs from the other socialist parties on the issue of nationalism vs. internationalism. All marxist socialist parties are internationalist; all right socialist parties are nationalist. The historical examples are Hitler/NSDAP, Mussolini/Fascists, Franco, Salazar, Peron, et al. Notably, Stalin adopted Russian nationalism over internationalism at the high tide of the German invasion. It has been argued that the Khmer Rouge were also a national socialist party.

Le Pen, herself, explained this last year.

Philippot is a homosexual, It seems many have joined "far-Right" parties in the West recently. The reason? muslims.
