Marine Le Pe, le pétainisme, and Putinism

I dedicate this post to the memory of André Malraux (1901-1976), one of the greatest novelists and public intellectuals of the twentieth century, an uncompromising anto-Fascist fighter. Marine Le Pen doesn’t need to praise le Maréchal, it’s enough that her ideological bricolage is pétainiste in its thrust, phobias, and mythologies. What she wants is “la révolution nationale,” la France pour les Français de bonne souche. Foreigners are apriorically inimical to le bien-être de la nation, they need to be expelled. Next step, eliminated. Then… Her amitié with Putin is ominous and alarming. Marine Le Pen”s victory would mean the second death of Jean Moulin and the demise of the Fifth Republic…
