So the first round of the French Presidential elections has come and gone, and round 2 will be between Macron and Le Pen, on 7 May 2017.
One of the odd things that I noticed was that Marine Le Pen is described as the far right wing candidate, while Emmanuel Macron is the Centrist candidate.
However, Emmanuel Macron has certainly a background that is socialist, and socialism is not centrist at all. Well, it did not use to be until newspeak go involved and all the old nomenclature became changed and made new.
Yes, I can understand that you might call Marine Le Pen right wing, though she is far nearer the centre than say, her father would have been. They are probably really nearer centre left and centre right than far right and centre candidates.
Another way that they have been divided or classed is nationalist vs… well, internationalist or EU supporter, but Emmanuel Macron is much more a globalist or a one world candidate. In this regard, it is interesting to note his background in Banking. Marcron has worked as an investment banker for Rothschild & Cie Banque and as such in very likely to see things from the globalist banking world perspective of the New World Order.
So France is in a battle between a big banking, globalist leftwing pro-EU candidate and a nationalist, anti-globalism and antiEU candidate. We have an interesting few weeks ahead.
