The next President of France will be Jean-Marie Le Pen’s daughter, albeit good or bad.
Marie and Marine.
Confusing as their names are, so is the phenomenal shift in the western politics these days. Brexit, Trump and ‘Marie’.
From a Japanese perspective, it is simply unimaginable how father’s name is ‘Marie’ and the daughter ‘Marine’.
I mean, it even sounds like a pure French joke.
No guy in Tokyo is called ‘Yoko’. John Lennon’s wife?! Absolutely. But it’s no boy’s name. It’s like calling Sean Lennon ‘John-Yoko’ Lennon.
Although I may be a nobody in the ‘Far East ‘ (seen from Paris, that is) living in obscurity, this French naming sense is already inexplicable to say the least. And the upcoming election on April 23rd to decide the next ruler of the ‘land of the croissant’ is not only unpredictable like Trump, but inexplicable by nature.
Le Pen daughter is not ‘Far right’
Recent homicides in Europe by Muslim extremists make Le Pen (for get the other ‘Marie’ – he’s just a detail in French politics) appear as a savior rather than a ‘dangerous far right extremist’ as often labeled by the western corporate medias like the AP.
I emphatically claim so due to the fact the so called ‘Far left’ candidate, Melenchon’s manifesto is no different from that of Le Pen – which is to pull France out of the EU.
Furthermore, this newcomer is also lobbying to quit the ‘obsolete’ NATO.
Despite the fact, the former is labeled as the far right and the latter far left.
A ‘tougher stance on immigrants’?!
Well Le Pen is surely claiming to deport illegal immigrants mainly from the former French colonies in the North African -sub Sahara region, but taking into account the perpetual suicide bombing by Paris government’s formidable adversary – which is of course the IS and its devout followers, I believe it is only natural to suspend immigrants for the time being till things settle down.
And isn’t that the unshakable reason why she’s surging hugely in the recent polls?!
I unequivocally refute any sort of racism, discrimination and segregation. But the recent bloodshed on innocent civilians in Monaco, Nice, German cities, Belgium and Paris is not only unacceptable, but has probably reached the level of intolerance amongst the Europeans as a whole.
And furthermore, it is nothing got do with ‘racism’. To lead this argument towards that direction is pretty much hypocritical, to my understanding.
That being said, it is only natural for me to reach an unshakable conclusion of a first women president in the land of croissant.
Oh, but you know what?! Croissants in Tokyo taste better these days!
