And speaking of anti-Semites, Marine le Pen mouths off again

And she seemed like such a nice lady:

Jewish people living in France who are also Israel citizens may have to give up their Israeli citizenship if a far-right wing French presidential candidate is elected. Marine Le Pen said she wouldn’t allow French citizens to maintain their citizenship in any country that was not part of the European Union, Haaretz reported Thursday.

“Israel isn’t a member of the European Union, and doesn’t consider itself as such,” Le Pen told France 2 TV after she was asked specifically if her plan also applied to France’s Jewish community.

“I’m asking the Israelis to choose their nationality. It doesn’t mean that if they don’t choose French nationality, they have to leave,” Le Pen said.

Neither U.S. citizens nor those from North African countries would be exempt from her ban, Le Pen added.

    So the French president is like trump? She can make unilateral declarations and have them become law?

      anything trump aka dishonest john does the next pres can undo, congress makes the laws or unmakes them….whatever..

      • Larry Schmitt February 11th, 2017 at 18:22

        Just don’t tell trump that.

      So far she is just a candidate….
      then again so was this guy,

        Exactly. She’s talking just like he was before the election.

          no she is not – she is not a come-lately. She is a true true right wing political conservative whereas rump is a bloated facimile of something the far right sickness in the usa invented. Madame Le Pen is real. Real scary too.

      she is not the French president. Just a potential candidate. And, sadly, she is not a psychopath like the pres of the usa. He atleast can be forgiven because he’s an empty husk of old dogg doo from a curb. Madame Le Pen is actually frighteningly intellegent and can argue her point of view without a bizarre panel of liars like those in the white house. But, if she wins, we’re as fkt as you all are now.

        Well said.

        No fan of le Pen’s but …..
        The issue is a simple one for her voters…. both countries have highly socialized programs available to citizens like healthcare and welfare which leads to double-dipping i.e collecting 2 pensions or getting treated for a medical condition.
        Like Trump, she turned it into a wedge issue but it is a legitimate question for the voters to answer and she’s using it perfectly. Make it about a minority who are getting something you’re not…
        The Euro-right seems to be way more suble than their American counterparts. She’s ten times the brain Trump is.

    How Kellyann Conway is so good at being a professional prevaricator…

    Hate and stupidity is not limited to American politicians

      Well I will admit I am glad we don’t hold the market for soulless politicians.It sucks there are any, but I sure don’t want them all here.

    • Bunya February 13th, 2017 at 13:55

      This is true – and we still give other countries a run for their money.

    The racist nut doesn’t fall far from the racist tree.

  5. Willys41 February 13th, 2017 at 03:25

    Wait, this is who now? I can’t keep track of all the crap going on just involving the Trump gang and keep up with crap in France too. I mean, I’m grateful that France helped us win our fight for independence, but, jeez . . . they’ve got right-wing nuts too?
