This is a useful thread for identifying the vile morons who sagely declare that fascism is preferable to a guy who worked for a bank or whatever.

Let's not pretend like the future of France under FBM is going to be some shining beacon for Europe or something. It's going to be a disaster, and you can count on Panzergirl to be there to reap the benefits in 2022. There is no surest way to encourage the rise of fascism than keeping on with nice technocratic centrist Smiley Smiley Smiley policies.

Ugh, f**king expats putting Fillon above 20%. Angry

And Le Pen probably won't even break 35% in the runoff.

She almost certainly will.

I mean probably not the right thing to say on the unity tour, but I'm coming around to the idea that Obama's Presidency really set a pathway for Donald Trump to rise.

Meh. He might become a good contributor if he stops with the childish whining and antics.

Le Pen. At least she's right on trade. And Macron is pretty bad on immigration too, just in the other direction.

Ah, this is exactly the sort of people Democrats should appeal to... Right?

Anyway, Macron.

Yes.

Says the person who supports the wall, and reducing legal immigration as well.

Says the person who unironically cares about reducing the deficit.

Bar 3 signatures for my thesis and a piece of paper I receive on May 13th, my last day of undergrad began six minutes ago.

Congrats! If you're anything like me in this regard as well, enjoy the short boost in self-esteem, because it probably won't last. Smiley

A new Reign of Terror is pretty much the only real solution at this point.

Hear, hear!

Is anyone here going to say without a doubt that Le Pen won't be the next President of France? Or are they like me now, someone who just won't feel comfortable until the results are final?

I refuse to ever predict anything with certainty, but I'm reasonably confident that she'll lose, yeah.

I'll hold my nose, take a deep breath, and put a Flawless, Beautiful ballot in the envelope.

The takes in this thread are very, very bad. For all of the talk of Le Pen's magnificent performance among the working class and RE-ALIGNMENT, what has been missed is that this only really occurred in a few departments (Nord and Pas-de-Calais) and that both Macron and Melenchon were a non-negligible presence in every working class community.

I mean, if that's enough to make you happy, good for you.

Am I the only one who finds it incredibly disturbing that "virgin" is still used as an insult?

No, you're not.

So what's the West Virginia/Alabama of France?

What a weird question, since West Virginia and Alabama have very different political histories.

Places like Vendée and Haut-de-Seine voting for the de facto "left-wing" candidate while doing terribly every working class area.

Not sure if it makes sense to think of Macron in such terms. He's the latest centrist huckster, except that in its current incarnation centrist hucksterism takes a higher share from the left than in its previous one (but not all previous ones).

Of course FBM is not left-wing, but most of his voters clearly are.

This map is hilarious/horrifying. The Realignment is real.

What's the realignment? I don't known French politics well.

Places like Vendée and Haut-de-Seine voting for the de facto "left-wing" candidate while doing terribly every working class area.

I see. Could this just be a short term trend due to Hollande's unpopularity and the French left going into this election with a huge handicap?

We'll see if the French left survives the next year or so. If it survives, it will have to be in opposition to FBM.

The only conservative thing about these "conservatives" in Europe is going to church on Christmas. LMAO, what a bunch of traitors but so many honest righ-wing people are falling for it...

Whatever, not bad for LePen to have the whole Establishment against her. Makes it easier to get the 40% I rate as a success.

The only honest rightism supports the freedom of trade and movement. Protectionism and restrictions are characteristics of far-leftist regimes.

The only consistent feature of rightist throughout history is nationalism.

Bullsh*t. The only consistent feature of rightists throughout history is supporting the rich and powerful.

Lassalle is winning communes in Pyrénées-Atlantiques? Is that supposed to happen? https://www.lefigaro.fr/elections/resultats/pyrenees-atlantiques-64/

Of course it is.

Le Pen doing very well in Northern France, many places getting upper 40's and doing well in the East.

Where are you seeing geographic results?

Fillon endorses FBM.
