Le Pen bullish on Right

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

KOBLENZ: French far-right Na­tional Front party leader and a pres­i­den­tial can­di­date Marine Le Pen said at the Free­dom for Europe con­fer­ence 2017 would be the year of “awak­en­ing” for the en­tire Europe.

On Satur­day, Le Pen took part in a con­fer­ence of Europe of Na­tions and Free­dom, a far-right group within the Euro­pean par­lia­ment.

Le Pen noted that An­glo-Saxon coun­tries had their awak­en­ing al­ready, re­fer­ring to the UK’s de­ci­sion to leave the Euro­pean Union and the US vot­ing in Don­ald Trump as pres­i­dent.

“The first se­ri­ous strike at our past, which will re­sult in the domino ef­fect, is Brexit,” she said.

The awak­en­ing was a mat­ter of when, not if, she added.

The Euro­pean elites were against the changes. “They sup­press op­po­si­tion views, pro­hibit any crit­i­cism of their sys­tem. They have be­come anti-democrats.” – Reuters
