I’ve been reading for quite a while now, particularly in the comment threads of certain US websites, that MLP (AKA Marine le Pen) really is France’s last chance.

Cue references to Joan of Arc—that was actually the illustration chosen by Drudge at some point today, under the title ‘Le Pen, La Panique’—a theme that’s been pushed, in fact, by the National Front itself for years, ever since Marine’s Big Bad Dada decided his Party would celebrate the crazy virgin’s birthday every 1st of May.

Leaving aside for a moment the fact that Joan of Arc was nothing short of a wild-eyed fanatic who engaged into warfare for political and religious reasons, in order to put an usurper on the throne of France, this curious trend from the western side of the Atlantic to see le Pen as France’s one and, perhaps, only chance is quite puzzling to me.

Consider this: internationalist socialism put us in the hole. I fail to see how nationalist socialism could get us out.

How and please, enough with the Joan of Arc shtick already. The real French heroine, and my personal favorite French historical figure, is Charlotte Corday.

Attendez... le Pen est la seule chance de la France ?

Je lis depuis quelques temps déjà, particulièrement dans les commentaires de certains sites US, que MLP (alias Marine le Pen) est vraiment la dernière chance de la France.

Le tout accompagné de références à Jeanne d’Arc (c’était d’ailleurs l’illustration choisie par Drudge dans la journée, sous le titre ‘Le Pen, La Panique’), un thème d’ailleurs instauré par le Front National lui-même, depuis que le vilain Papa de la Marine a décidé que son Parti allait célébrer l’anniversaire de la naissance de la pucelle en folie, chaque premier Mai.

Laissant de côté pour un instant le fait que Jeanne d’Arc n’était rien d’autre qu’une fanatique hystérique se livrant à des actes guerriers pour mettre en place un usurpateur sur le trône de France, cette tendance curieuse, du côté ouest de l’Atlantique, à voir en le Pen la seule et dernière chance de la France me laisse totalement dubitatif.

Concrètement : le socialisme internationaliste nous a mis dans le trou. Je vois mal comment le socialisme nationaliste pourrait nous en sortir.

Oh et par pitié : assez avec Jeanne d’Arc. La seule véritable héroïne Française, et ma personnalité historique Française préférée, est Charlotte Corday.
