With unanimous mainstream media support and the backing of both Socialist and Republican leaders, globalist banker and open borders enthusiast Emmanuel Macron looks to have won over nationalist Marine Le Pen, as expected, in the French presidential election.
The mainstream media is calling it a “stunning achievment” even though the young banker had the entire system on his side and the outcome has been expected from the beginning. The establishment darling reportedly got 65.5% to Le Pen’s 34.5%. France24 puts the results slightly better at 65.1% for Macron to 34.9% for Le Pen. The only other time a National Front candidate made it to the second round was in 2002. In that run-off Jean-Marie Le Pen won 17.8%. So, the party has essentially doubled its appeal since then, but is still a significant distance from power.
Politico reports that turnout was low, down 7 points from the last election, which was seen as helping Le Pen.
Also, media companies are boycotting the Le Pen party now because Leftist, anti-Le Pen companies such as Politico were not allowed entry.
Le Pen is defiant in defeat, saying, “I will head the fight for those who choose France.”
