French Nationalist Marine Le Pen Running Even With Emmanuel Macron in France’s Presidential Election

Could the French presidential election present the next opportunity for populists?

Published

New opinion polling for France’s upcoming 2022 presidential election suggests that National Rally leader Marine Le Pen is running in a near-tie with French President Emmanuel Macron. Le Pen announced that she would run against Macron in a rematch election earlier this month.

In 2017, Macron had defeated Le Pen in France’s last presidential election, although she won the first round of the contest with 24% of the vote to Macron’s 21%. Voters formerly aligned with France’s once-vibrant socialist parties have flocked to National Rally, with their former parties failing to present a real opposition to the globalist neoliberal establishment.

Polling currently shows Le Pen running just behind Macron, at 48% to 52%. Le Pen was handily defeated in the second round of France’s last election, and a more competitive second round could easily result in a Le Pen victory.

Macron’s approval ratings have hovered in the 20’s recently, facing criticism from Right and Left for a perceived elitist style of governance and popular antipathy to coronavirus restrictions. France has been said to face a crisis of identity, with many in the nation opposing the adoption of American-style critical race theory throughout society and an alternate standard of conduct within France’s immigrant enclaves. Islamist terror has endured in France even as it has declined in frequency in other western countries. Le Pen’s National Rally has also moderated its Euroskeptic policies, advocating for reform of the European Union as opposed to taking France out of the political union.

2020 proved a challenging and disappointing year for many western populists and nationalists, with the political ramifications of the coronavirus epidemic working in the favor of the political establishment. 2022 could prove to be much different, with the French presidential election representing the next opportunity for a nationalist movement to take power in a major western country.

AMERICA IS BACK BABY!

You didn’t seriously think that after four years of peace in the Middle East, things were gonna stay that way, did you Jack? Well of course not! On Thursday afternoon, the Pentagon confirmed that the United States military had carried out airstrikes in Syria against facilities used by Iranian-backed militias. These groups have been operating in Syria for some time in their fight against the Islamic State and Al-Qaeda.

Pentagon Press Secretary Kirby gave the following statement:

“At President Biden’s direction, U.S. military forces earlier this evening conducted airstrikes against infrastructure utilized by Iranian-backed militant groups in eastern Syria. These strikes were authorized in response to recent attacks against American and Coalition personnel in Iraq, and to ongoing threats to those personnel. Specifically, the strikes destroyed multiple facilities located at a border control point used by a number of Iranian-backed militant groups, including Kait’ib Hezbollah (KH) and Kait’ib Sayyid al-Shuhada (KSS).

This proportionate military response was conducted together with diplomatic measures, including consultation with Coalition partners. The operation sends an unambiguous message: President Biden will act to protect American and Coalition personnel. At the same time, we have acted in a deliberate manner that aims to de-escalate the overall situation in both eastern Syria and Iraq.”

According to conservative commentator Jack Posobiec, Vice President Harris was not included in the discussions about the bombing and is very upset that she wasn’t.

Many Twitter users are also pointing out the fact that Biden had fully condemned unannounced military action in the Middle East when it was Trump doing it.

According to the New York Post, the airstrikes were in response to recent attacks against US forces in Iraq. The militia groups targeted have denied any involvement in the attacks and there has been no confirmation as to whether or not they were involved. The New York Post wrote:

The Pentagon did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

It was not immediately clear if there were any deaths or injuries caused by the US strike, or the extent of damage it may have caused.

On Feb. 15, a rocket attack against a US military base at Erbil International Airport in Northern Iraq killed a US-led coalition contractor and left others wounded, including an American service member.

Two days later, a base hosting US forces north of Baghdad was targeted in another rocket attack, wounding at least one contractor.

On Monday rockets hit Baghdad’s Green Zone, which houses the US embassy and other diplomatic missions.

Earlier this week, the Kataib Hezbollah group, one of the main Iran-aligned Iraqi militia groups, denied any role in recent rocket attacks against U.S. targets in Iraq.

Some Western and Iraqi officials say the attacks, often claimed by little-known groups, are being carried out by militants with links to Kataib Hezbollah as a way for Iranian allies to harass US forces without being held accountable.

Fox New’s Tucker Carlson, who seems to be the only host on any cable news network that has been unquestionably anti-war for the past four years, gave a monologue Thursday night about his take on the attacks:
