French President Francois Hollande made stirring speeches after the Paris terror attacks on November 13. But in last night’s regional elections, his socialist party came in third.
Finishing first place overall, winning 6 out of 13 regions, was the anti-immigration Front National, led by Marine Le Pen.
The party nearly tripled its vote from 11 percent to around 30 percent.
The mainstream media still calls Le Pen “far right” or “extremist”. How high a percentage of the vote does Le Pen have to get before the rules of plain language kick in and we acknowledge that Le Pen is a lot more normal than Hollande is?
Le Pen’s success in Calais, across the English Channel from the United Kingdom, is the most telling. It’s typically a socialist area. But under Hollande, it's also where Muslim migrants wait in a squalid refugee camp, while they try to get across into the UK.
Le Pen got more than 50% in Calais — that would be like Stephen Harper getting 50% in Montreal.
Last night’s vote was a coming of age for the Front National. The presidential elections are in 2017, not far away.
If the Front National wins that race, maybe France will have a chance.
