Elitist rag engages in libelous gutter warfare against Le Pen
MAY 5, 2017
The New York Times has escalated their propaganda war against anti-globalist candidates and their ‘deplorable’ supporters to a new intensity, openly calling Marine Le Pen a “racist extremist,” while dimissing “populism” as ‘white nationalism.’
Paul Krugman’s latest editorial in the Times is an endorsement of former Rothschild banker and darling of the globalist establishment, Emmanuel Macron, and a cowardly hit piece on Le Pen and the roughly eight million French citizens who have already voted for her.
“On Sunday France will hold its presidential runoff,” he writes. “Most observers expect Emmanuel Macron, a centrist, to defeat Marine Le Pen, the white nationalist — please, let’s stop dignifying this stuff by calling it ‘populism.’ And I’m pretty sure that Times rules allow me to state directly that I very much hope the conventional wisdom is right. A Le Pen victory would be a disaster for Europe and the world.”
Krugman goes on to praise the virtues of the French welfare state, and compare its “substantially” better unemployment rate for 25-44 year olds against U.S. statistics.
He makes no mention of the Youth Unemployment Rate in France, which currently sits at nearly 24% – versus 9% in the United States. These pesky factoids would, of course, immediately crush Krugman’s ugly race-baiting conspiracy theories, as Le Pen’s youth support is so phenomenal, even the mainstream media has had to marvel at it in article after article.
“So why are so many willing to vote for — again, let’s not use euphemisms — a racist extremist?” Krugman asks.
Perhaps so many support Le Pen because they simply desire employment, prosperity, and some of that “hope and change” job-destroyers like Barack Obama (whom Krugman has called a ‘historic success’) and Macron constantly – and emptily – promise.
Krugman’s vile defamation of French patriots comes hot on the heels of what some are calling Macron’s “Basket of Deplorables” moment during a speech at one of his rallies earlier this week.
“They’re here. It’s they. It’s they who are our true enemies,” declared Mr. Macron of Le Pen’s supporters. “You pass them in the streets, in the countryside or on the web, most often well hidden. As hateful as they are cowardly. You know them. The party of the agents of the disaster, the fearmongerers. The French far-right. It’s here.”
As with Brexit and the U.S. presidential election, French voters will have to make a critical decision about the future of their nation on Sunday, race-baiting and elitist condescension be damned.
And like Americans, millions of them will have to decide if they want to be ruled by a corporatist hack who views them as the “true enemy.”
