I don’t know much about French politics, but at first glance, Jean-Marie Le Pen looks little different than your average European nationalist. He’s old, he’s white, he’s fat and ugly; and if you stand him in front of a microphone he’ll blather on endlessly about how much he loves his culture and how it is but one pubic hair’s length away from dying off completely because of TEH IMMIGRANTS.
It’s the same, sad, pathetic story everywhere you go in Europe. In England, the English culture is dying. In Norway, the Norwegian culture is dying. In France, the French culture is dying. And in every case they blame immigrants.
But they’re not racists.
Oh, no. Of course, not. They just love their culture so fucking much they don’t want to share it with the horrible brown people who don’t look, sound, or think like they do.
Yesterday, Le Pen, whilst musing of TEH IMMIGRANTS and their destructive multiculturalism in front of his supporters in Marseille, fantasized about the world’s “demographic explosion” being brought to an inexorable halt by a saucy chap he called “Monsieur Ebola“.
The Guardian reports:
See. Nothing racist there at all. Monsieur Le Pen(is) simply thinks the world would be a better place if a highly virulent and pathogenic virus swept like wildfire through the third world, killing untold millions of men, women, and children… who aren’t French.
But wait! There’s more:
Opinion polls have suggested that the FN could score between 23% and 25% of the vote in France this Sunday, beating the opposition centre-right UMP party and the ruling Socialists.
Well, that’s just fucking great.
