Look Who Was Spying Then

Paris

Which is why it takes a lot of nerve for any of us to complain about other countries’ supposed interference in our elections.

It wasn’t just the CIA, either.  The American embassy in Paris and a bunch of American-led democracy project style soft power organizations also interfered, mainly to cock block FN/MLP.

This is why Trump’s victory was so important, because the upcoming French elections will now be held with the colossus of American soft and implied hard power being wielded by someone who is at least somewhat sympathetic with FN/MLP, instead of hostile toward it.

But opposition members and NGOs in Henin-Beaumont say the party’s manicured image masks a more disturbing reality.

They point to a “Migrant-free Town” vote organised by Briois last year — without the town having been asked to take in any of migrants pouring into Europe — as proof of a hardline agenda.

In spite of that, the town seems to be a pleasant place to live.

ISIS, you say?

By the end of the day, it will have had nothing to do with Islam, and we’ll all be made to be vigilant about resisting the Islamphobic backlash.  Ordinarily, I’d think that’s a contradiction, but those seem to thrive in Der Narrative.

Also, ordinarily, I’d swear that a foreign potentate has declared war on France.





Duh

It’s official:  It was planned.

No fucking duh.  Who does this kind of thing on a whim?

On Bastille Day, too.  It’s too soon to note the irony.
