I don't have too strong an opinion on this, but thought it would be food for thought. What was scary was to hear about voters crowing for "the good old days of Marshal Pétain." The USA's "good old days of Jim Crow" is scary enough.
Interesting article. What is called "centre-right" is in fact right and "socialist" is in fact centre to centre-left in the French context.
The so-called "socialists" few years ago decided that workers weren't numerous and/or important enough to care and so this party has redirected its interest towards "bobos" (in my eyes and to be short; middle-class with white guilt, the will to see diversity ... but not too close, thank you but no thanks) and minorities which it "hits on", community by community.
Our media try to turn the presidential election into a Le Pen vs the other one campaign and so Emmanuel Macron is said to be the solution because he is not from any of the 2 usually governing parties. In the other hand, he was in the government and his supports are so numerous and diverse amongst the "elites" than it brings questions and doubt regarding his ideas. Plus there are a lot of strange things (in the French system): a place owned by a millionaire lent to his movement, dozens of staffers while he hasn't financial help by any party, travels abroad to raise money ... And he has showned what some call a "try/error" strategy: he says something ... and if it is badly received by the voters he retracts/correct himself.
A point very important but not developed in the article is that the legislative election is the important one: the government is run by the prime minister, chosen in the leading party in the low chamber of the parliament. The FN can't get the majority so can't get a prime minister and Mr. Macron doesn't have a party. He plans to present candidates amongst which 50 % are never-elected ones but he still has to find them and it's not sure they would get votes so he would probably have to make pacts with "traditional" parties to make sure he gets the seat he needs.
Yes, I got that from it (I don't know if it has been used in France; in Spanish the expression "white brand [in this case] Socialist" was popular a few years ago for this sort of situation). However, what worries me is that the pic doesn't just describe him as a party mole - it goes on to portray the whole Jewish-leftist conspiracy stereotype (a banker's top hat and cigar AND a sickle, really?? Hollande' PS is represented by a Bolshevik sickle??).
