    That is encouraging. We have all had enough of “Charlie Brown” candidates.

    Alas, for every candidate that would vote for Le Pen or Zemmour, there are a thousand who would vote Einstein’s definition of insanity (e.g., Macron and the Establishmen). It’s getting harder and harder to feel sorry for adherents of Western dumbocracy. We here might want to see France governed by the National Front, but it probably deserves more Socialism, good and hard. Ditto for every other collapsing, self-hating western nation.

    Eric Zemmour is a fake Nationalist:
    https://voxday.net/2021/11/29/that-sounds-familiar-2/

    “Macron, he goes on, is gripped by ‘an individualistic ideology. He thinks every individual is basically the same and can live everywhere. Of course, he will enforce rules here and there, but fundamentally…the existence of peoples to him seems outdated.’

    Does he blame the economic liberalism of Thatcher and Reagan for the excessive individualism to which Macron subscribes? ‘I wouldn’t say that,’ he replies. ‘It’s more a deviation from Christian humanism. As Chesterton said: “It’s Christian virtues gone mad.”’

    Western societies, Zemmour suggests, have ‘simply forgotten that in Christian humanism there is indeed the respect for the individual but that is rooted in a culture, a religion, a people, a land… [today] we have the individual who is sacred, very well, but who is completely isolated from his people, his historical context, his customs. You see it is believed that individuals are interchangeable, that they are only consumers. It’s an economistic view that I don’t share. I think that people are first of all a product of their culture, their people, their customs.’”

    Vox’s comment:
    “I rather like Zemmour, but I don’t trust him in the slightest and not merely because he isn’t French. Remember, Macron once talked a semi-reasonable game too. And “Christian humanism” is a half-step toward “our judeochristian values”. But the biggest problem is the way in which a journalist is suddenly being taken seriously as a political candidate. It’s rather as if the Republicans suddenly put forward Ben Shapiro for the 2024 presidential nomination because he was so accomplished at “owning the liberals”.”

      He’s not perfect nor ideal – Le Pen, either senior or her niece, would be better – but his parents were essentially Pied-Noirs:

      They identified more with France than Algeria, and thus fled.

      So while I think France would be better off with a Le Pen, he’s far better than Macron…

        Sure. But I do trust vox on this. Given his accurate predictions In the past about people.

        He may just be another Gatekeeper.

      Eric Zemmour is a fake Nationalist

      I think we can safely declare that any “populist,” in any nation, who isn’t the target of ceaseless, merciless, borderline violent persecution by the Reigning Establishment is a a fake Nationalist. In other words, anybody who has genuine grassroots support constitutes a clear present danger to the governing class and is targeted for immediate elimination. So yeah, Zemmour is no doubt a “Youngkinite” (i.e., fake populist/nationalist establishmentarian thrown into the electoral ring as a distraction to the sheeple while stealthily doing the Establishment’s bidding).
