The leader of the French political party Front National, Marine Le Pen, once again faces a BBC “journalist” who accuses her of holding onto ideas he obviously detests and believes to be terrible – such as stopping the ongoing flood of Muslim immigration and protecting France’s sovereignty.
I don’t know where this particular reporter received his Marxist indoctrination. It is beyond fascinating to see the obvious condescending disdain on his face as Ms. Le Pen answers and rebuts his accusations. He looks at her as if she is some lower form of life.
Equally fascinating to watch is his non-acknowledgment when Ms. Le Pen presents effective statistical evidence which destroys his assertions. Without blinking he interrupts her and launches into the next scripted attack. And, like many leftists, he employs the standard tool of claiming that the majority of the French people agrees with his side of a given argument, particularly when the discussion comes round to the possibility of France following England’s exit from the European Union.
I wonder if he believes that a majority of British people really didn’t want to walk away from the EU.
It really doesn’t matter what he thinks. It is very interesting to watch and listen to his loud, overbearing, supercilious interrogation. Ms. Le Pen is not impressed or intimidated. What will tell the tale is when the French elections roll up on him and the people make their decision.
