French candidates for European elections focus only on immigration
Le Pen called on voters to support the street movement, in opposition to that of the Insubordinate France party of Jean-Luc Mélanchon, France Insoumise, which she described as “Islamist”.
Insubordinate France is Islamist France, said Le Pen, campaigning in the Yonne, for the European elections. The president of the National Rally also took the opportunity to taunt the leftists, reported Le Point.
“To those who have been protesting at the highway roundabouts, I have come to tell them about the peaceful and democratic way to get something, and to do that May 26. For all these weeks and weeks of struggle, combat, mobilization not to be crossed out with a stroke of the pen, means going to vote for the RN list”, Marine Le Pen told a hundred militants.
The RN president did not stop there, and went on to attack another list supported by the Yellow Vests. “Insubordinate France should be called Islamist France,” said the president of the RN, denouncing their “refusal of any control at the borders, (…) the distribution of French nationality to the first that arrives, the vote of immigrants and the recognition of a climate refugee status’.” She concluded by saying: “Not one sensible Frenchman should accept following this immigrationist delusion.”
According to Bardella: “The lessons on immigration (are) very beautiful but we have in France 10 million poor, 6 million unemployed and one in three French who can not properly treat themselves. So yes, we assume to be elected by our own people, and to use politics for the benefit of our own people.”
Last week, a dozen Arab teenagers boarded a train in Val-d’Oise shouting that they were in possession of explosives. Some passengers panicked and got off the train and ran away after the teenagers sowed terror on Saturday, May 18 in the evening on line H in Soisy-sous-Montmorency, reported Le Parisien.
They shouted “Allahu Akbar” and told passengers that they were armed with explosive belts. At the station of Enghien, many chose to get off the train, as did the teenagers.
But a woman had alerted the police and a police team from La Brigade anti-criminalité BAC arrived on the spot, according to Le Parisien. The security forces quickly located the individuals concerned, identified by the witness.
They were taken into custody but released, subject to a reminder of the law. According to the Paris daily newspaper, they come from several towns in Val-d’Oise, Seine-Saint-Denis and Yvelines and are between 17 and 19 years old.
A similar incident took place in January in the Loiret, aboard a train between Paris and Orleans. The driver made the decision to stop the train in order to allow the intervention of the police.
Asked about immigration during the debate held on Monday, May 20 on LCI with the heads of the lists for the European elections, the president of another sovereignist party, Debout France also put forward strong proposals against foreigners.
Nicolas Dupont-Aignan spoke out during the debate organised by LCI for the European elections. The head of the list said voters should have “the courage to defend the French” and shared his proposals on how to address the question of immigration.
“Immigration is a humanitarian tragedy! But to solve it, the first thing is to restore our national borders. No country in the world has solved the problems of mass immigration without controlling its borders,” said the president of Debout France.
“Europe is facing a considerable geopolitical challenge: the African population will double in 30 years, or 1 billion more! Faced with this, the discussions about who is nice or bad is absurd,” Nicolas Dupont-Aignan noted, before adding:” I dare to say, we must tackle a taboo: birth control in Africa, as China did in its time to make a successful economic transition. African countries know it very well!”
His parallel with the one-child policy in China did not fail to rile other candidates, including a French environmentalist and Member of the European Parliament, Yannick Jadot. “There is a way to create demographic breaks. It is to put girls in school, it is to give work to women. This is not Chinese-style birth control,” responded the EELV candidate.
Dupont-Aignan has been a fierce critic of President Emannuel Macron. Earlier he told French conservative weekly Valeurs Actuelles: “I consider that we are on the verge of a revolution. But in life, we must not expect from the people who have created the problems that they can solve them.
The only solution for France is a clean sweep against this oligarchy that governs France and failed at everything. Who will lead him? It may not be me, but I will have contributed,” said Dupont-Aignan.
