As we all know, Emmanuel Macron won the French presidential election of 2017. This man was the socialist champion for the American Left, running against someone who is essentially the female version of Trump (as much as that is possible knowing how many socialists there are in France anyway). The Left is super ecstatic over this win, but not because Macron won. More so, because Le Pen lost.
Bernie Sanders tweeted “Congratulations to the people of France who today, by an overwhelming vote, rejected racism and xenophobia.” Crazy Bernie sees the election results and the first thing he says isn’t a congratulatory message to the winner, but a message to the people of France for beating what leftists consider “racism and xenophobia”. Macron doesn’t matter to them, all that matters is that the right-wing candidate lost. Because they really needed a win, and they really wanted it to be against Trump, so this will have to do.
The Left will probably make this whole thing to be a far bigger deal than it really is. They will likely talk about it for about a week and then stop covering it and basically forget about it. Meanwhile, it’s been half a year since Trump destroyed Hillary and they’re still recovering from that.
France, unlike the U.S., is not a super power in the world. It has little to do around the world. This election won’t affect the world so much, unless it pulls out of the E.U., which, thanks to this new president, they definitely won’t. But to the Left, this is almost equal to Hillary beating Trump. They really want to savor this small victory for as long as they possibly can until they return to being completely miserable and reminded that they lost to a candidate they considered to be an absolute joke.
But looking directly at France, I have to say, I feel sorry for these people. They, by making this terrible mistake, have voted for the same socialist policies that they despised from the previous president. The previous president of France had a 4% approval rating by the end of 2016, which explains why he didn’t run again. The French clearly disliked what he has done, but were deceived into voting for more of it with Macron. Macron isn’t of the Socialist party, unlike the outgoing president. Macron founded his own party: En Marche! Which translates to Forward! By the name of the party, you can tell that he’s a progressive, which means he’s a socialist.
Now, here’s the thing: France isn’t America. France wasn’t founded on the principle of freedom from oppression and persecution for Christian beliefs. Much like the Spaniards and British, the French were conquerors in the American continent. They were trying to accomplish the same thing as the Brits and Spaniards: conquering America. France is no different from other European countries, in that it was founded centuries and centuries ago. America’s founding was special. Being founded under Christian beliefs and building a government of the people, by the people and for the people, and maintain it for this long is special.
Therefore, France is not as likely to elect a Trump-like candidate, or even a Reagan-like candidate. There just aren’t any. France has lived under socialism for quite a while now, not just since this president (Macron) or the previous. From absolute monarchy to emperorship to socialism, France has no experience with small government like we do.
But the fact of the matter remains: Macron was the worse candidate for France. Unlike Le Pen, he is more than happy to keep France in the Globalist, world-domination-seeking European Union. Macron was the Obama-like candidate in this race and Le Pen was the almost-Trump-like candidate (again, hard to have someone be like Trump in issues when they were brought up in different cultures and countries).
The people of France have voted for more terrorism and less security in their country, without them knowing it (that's were the deception part comes into play). I pray that they stay safe as the inevitable waves of terrorism are bound to hit them and I also pray that they open their eyes and see that progressives and socialists are evil people that don’t care about their citizens’ lives.
I encourage the people of France that voted for Le Pen to read and reflect on the following Bible verse:
“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
