Macron’s Surprising Win was not a Surprise

Did anyone really expect Marine Le Pen to win the French presidency?  This is yet another example of the media folks – especially on the left – to get overwrought when some right-wing character surfaces.  In fact, the hyper attention they give folks like Le Pen actually enhances their prominence.  The left first promotes and then uses the far-left personalities as strawmen (and women) to spread negative opinions across the entire political right.

I was among those who did not think Le Pen would win.  I did not even believe it would be a cliffhanger.  Humility aside, I was correct.  Emmanuel Macron won his second term by a 58 to 42 margin.  That is a landslide.  Le Pen was crushed.

Le Pen gained some political traction over the years because of the kitchen table domestic issues, but she was scary to the French people on foreign policy.  Appearing to be too palsy with Vladimir Putin and talking about getting out of NATO when the Kremlin nutcase is engaging in war crimes and genocide in Ukraine is a definite losing strategy.

While LePen got enough votes to get into the runoff, those votes were about all she would get in the general election.

After two failed attempts to win the presidency, Le Pen is – for all practical purposes – fini.  Her National Rally party still has power in the French National Assembly, but it will need to find a new leader if it hopes to succeed Macron.  

Hopefully, that new person will not represent the extremists on the right-wing, but someone to the center-right of Macron.  But keep in mind that Macron is not popular with the left.  His pro-business positions enraged the radical left from the moment he was elected.

What the French voters faced was a centrist President and a too far-right opponent.  The outcome of that should have been easily predictable – even by the leftwing media.

So, there ‘tis.

  1. Macron is certainly not a centrist and Le Pen is NOT too far right! The country could have used her to start cleaning up their swamp!

  2. Who carers about the frogs? Not once, but twice we kept the national language of Frogolia from being German at the cost of the lives of thousands of young American men who were in the prime of their life, but that was not enough, They got more of us killed in Vietnam. More Americans then frogs, in fact.

    I was in Vietnam in February of 1968 where walter krankite lied and said we lost (We decimated the gooks) and I can tell you that whole country is not worth a fingernail if an American. The frogs using up Americans like we were toilet paper for the best part of the last centenary I cannot stay far enough from the cowardly foot fighters to suite me.

    Two of my great uncles got gassed in WWI at Meuse
    My Father was under Paton and lucky to get out of France alive in WWII before he nearly to death on the outskirts of Bastogne
    I almost bought it in Tuy Hoa. when an RPG hit a bunker I was next to
    My Cousin got blown off his bull dozer clearing mines outside Pleku.
    That’s more then enough help to france from out family,,,,and frankly for the whole USA.

    Ever see the ads for French assault rifles? Like new, Only dropped once.
    Screw the frogs. They have gotten enough Americans Killed off. Let then fight their own battles.

  3. You forgot when during the debate macron asked her: How many police officers “women” will you use to pursue all the women who use veils, she answered: the same you used to pursue our citizens to wear a mask.
    Truth is if you go to Paris today more people drinks rising moon cola than coca cola and there are more channels in Arab than in French in cable TV. These people have been coming to France in waves (for 30 years!) and the French allowed it FOR THE OIL, THOSE ARE THE ONES WHO VOTED FOR macron, in other words, they voted for the final and total destruction of the French beautiful culture.

  4. Interesting article, but I think there was some hanky panky going on. I don’t trust most election results anymore. I don’t trust much of anything any more. I don’t think I am paranoid, although I might be. I do agree that the left uses far left entertainers, etc as strawmen to sway many voters away from Le Pen, or whomever. I just don’t think many voters over time want to stay in the globalist camp. Macron is a globalist, and the world is moving away from Globalism. I do think, without knowing that votes may have been tampered with. I guess we shall see as time goes on.
