France’s next president is shaping up to be the far-right François Fillon or the farther-right Marine Le Pen.
France is in the midst of its election season, and François Fillon, an ultraconservative French version of Trump, won the primary on November 27.
The country is in a panic. The most likely top two candidates for French presidency now are Fillon and Marine Le Pen, the French David Duke (a notorious white supremacist)! So it’s likely Nazi-light or Nazi-totale for France.
Most of us expats are freaking out! Trump’s America would look like a democracy in heaven versus Le Pen’s France!
How did this happen?
It’s the same as the United States: Ultraconservatives felt pushed too fast and too far to the left with sweeping social changes.
France has two faces: open and bohemian in Paris and conservative, Catholic, everything-phobic in the backlands.
Poland, Hungary and the U.K. are on the fast track to the alt-right already. British Prime Minister Theresa May is even invoking God to help in the Brexit!
The U.S. has succumbed, and next is France. Europe is falling to pieces.
