First Came Australia, Now Comes France, Yes FRANCE – Conservative FN Party Surging and French Media Astounded….

There are many similarities at work in the French electorate just like they are here.   The Front National Party (FN) is similar in view and position to the U.S. Tea Party.  However, the FN has an actual political structure.  Pay attention to this paragraph in the article (emphasis mine):

The left and the mainstream right are blaming each other for what is happening, but the reality is they’ve both been knocked sideways,” said Nonna Mayer, the Research Director at the National Research Centre CNRS. “Neither of them know what to do.”

Sound familiar?

*Note* For those who don’t follow international politics closely Marine Le Pen is like a French version of Sarah Palin; albeit without the media attached misogyny.

MARINE-Le-Pen_ap_843564tFRANCE24 – France’s mainstream political parties were Monday scratching their heads over what to do about a surge by the Front National (FN) after a breakthrough by-election win for the far-right party.

The ruling Socialist party and the centre-right Union for a Popular Movement (UMP), the party of former president Nicolas Sarkozy, face humiliating reverses in municipal and European elections next year if the FN can sustain its current standing in the eyes of an electorate thoroughly fed-up with record unemployment, rising taxes and a perceived increase in crime and insecurity.

A poll published last week suggested the FN could emerge as the best-supported party in the European elections with 24 percent of those asked declaring themselves ready to back the party led by Marine Le Pen, the daughter of FN founder Jean-Marie Le Pen.

That shock survey was followed on Sunday by a spectacular victory for the FN in a local by-election in Brignoles, where FN candidate Laurent Lopez claimed 53.9 percent of the vote in a run-off against the UMP candidate.

“The left and the mainstream right are blaming each other for what is happening, but the reality is they’ve both been knocked sideways,” said Nonna Mayer, the Research Director at the National Research Centre CNRS. “Neither of them know what to do.”

There were particular, local factors in Brignoles which influenced the outcome of a vote being held for the third time, the result having been judged too close to stand on two previous occasions, when the run-off was between the FN and the Communist Party.  (read more)

    This related article outlines some of the political backstory. It is also outlines the issues which have been at the heart of U.S. mid-east policy that NO Western media will touch.

    The EU was paying Kaddaffi $5 billion euro annually to keep the gates from Africa closed. If you read the article above and then look at a map of the Mediterranean you will easily identify why the Arab Spring began where it did and how it evolved.

    It might take a generation from today to write the real reason(s) behind the past two years in the Middle East, but when that history is written it’s the immigration issue and the socio-economic impacts to the EU which will be the nucleus of the accepted origin.

      Interesting Sundance, I have been puzzled as to the rational for taking out Kadaffy. Libya was a very advanced & wealthy society, functioning at a high level of citizen satisfaction…then the R2P bitches of Obama got involved!

    I’ve been studying historical population records.
    For most of human history, total world population didnt exceed a billion people.
    The African continent alone is populated by a billion peeps more or less.
