One might think that the Le Pen family, a family consisting of entirely terrible people, would get along famously. That their shared bond of being the actual worst ever would bring them together rather than tearing them apart.

Alas, nothing could be further from the truth, for the Le Pen family consists of many bad tastes that do not, apparently, taste great together. And each is fighting for the future of the National Front, the far-right political party founded by Marine Le Pen’s father, Jean-Marie Le Pen.

Marine Le Pen, for her part, announced after the French election, which she lost by SO MANY, that there would be some serious structural changes coming to the National Front, including the possible dissolution of the party itself. After having tried to rebrand the party and give it a softer, less Nazified image, she now appears to want to move it to the center in order to make it slightly more palatable to the majority of French people.

Via Haaretz:

“The National Front … must deeply renew itself in order to rise to the historic opportunity and meet the French people’s expectations,” Le Pen said in a brief address to supporters shortly after initial projections were released.

“I will propose to start this deep transformation of our movement in order to make a new political force,” she added. 

Following Marine’s defeat in the French presidential election, her father — whom she had banished from the party on account of the fact that he couldn’t stop talking about how the Holocaust wasn’t that bad, and she had hoped to “soften” the party’s image by demonizing Muslims rather than Jewish people — said the loss was her own “disgraceful failure.” He also called for the current director of the party to step down.

Le Pen, pere, got his start running a music company that produced Nazi songs and first built the party from a rag tag coalition of Vichy France nostalgists, neo-Nazi Pagans and Traditionalist Catholics, and he would very much like to see the party return to its roots of even more extreme terribleness. However, after he retired in 2011, Marine was elected as leader and hoped to soften the party’s image by going after Muslims rather than Jews. Charming people, all of them!

However! Waiting in the wings is Marine’s niece and Jean-Marie’s granddaughter, Marion Marechal-Le Pen, who has some ideas of her own. When it was clear Marine was going to lose the election, Marechal-Le Pen threw some shade on her aunt by saying that “A result of 40 percent would be an amazing result” — which at that point it was clear Auntie Marine was not going to be getting.

Marechal-Le Pen has been considered to be a contender to replace her aunt as leader of the party, and she wants to make the National Front more representative of its radical Christian wing — another part of the party that Marine Le Pen tried to downplay in order to win voters. However, the 27-year-old announced on Tuesday that she plans to quit politics altogether, so perhaps that wing of the party will have to search the rest of the Le Pen family for a new potential leader. Perhaps there’s a second cousin or something somewhere who has yet to be tapped!

So who will win the battle for the lack-of-soul of the National Front? Will it be the Nazis? The far-right Christians? Or will it be the “Let’s pretend we’re not THAT horrible but also still very Islamaphobic” wing? Or will they dissolve into various hate-factions? Nothing is certain except the extreme awkwardness of their future family get-togethers.

    The National Front … must deeply renew itself in order to rise to the historic opportunity and meet the French people’s expectations,

    Considering the French people have just proven they’ve regected Nazis or can’t be easily fooled by Nazi propaganda dolled up as “patriotism”, that’s going to be a tall order.
    Imma guessing they’ll be cribbing notes from the US Libertarian Party and the UKIP on how to organize a racist base and not be obvious about it.

    After having lost the election miserably, the nazis in the National Front Party decide that besides being a bunch of dumbfucking nazis, the name “National Front” may sound a bit to…nazi-ish for people that aren’t dumbfucking nazis.

    • snark-lurker

      the “Front” has hard meaning in France, there are memorial & maps & topographical scars & en-exploded ordinance that SCREAM “The Front Passed Thru’ Here and POEPLE DIED!”

      • dansezlajavanaise

        not sure if you know that, but it’s because ‘front’ means ‘frontline of war’.

      The great “get” for international fascism appears to be the three great English-speaking nations where Rupert Murdoch, courtier to the fossil fuel industry, enjoys disproportionate influence–Great Britain, Australia, and the good old US of A. All three have become deeply anti-democratic cultures.

Does anyone go into “Raiders of the Lost Ark”, look at Toht and think “That’s who I wanna be when I grow up”? Whoever saw anything with Nazis in it and immediately sympathized with said Nazis?

    There’s a reason that Nazi is short hand for “evil”, because they absolutely stand for evil. Walks, looks, quacks like a Nazi, it’s an Evil. These idiots wanna cosplay s the biggest villains in history, expect to be hated for it. Nobody, but nobody cried when Admiral Piett died.

          I don’t have a bitter enough joke–the set up was the joke. But I’ll try:
          1. Only one, but it is the “final” change of the shower head?
          2. Three–one to change the shower head, one to explain that the Jews made it necessary, and the third to drop the Zyklon B pellet?
          I can’t, I’m too sad.

    One of my favorite war movies is the 1943 Humphrey Bogart classic Sahara. An American tank in North Africa becomes a “combat Ark” gathering Allied soldiers by 1s and 2s to make a stand -less than 10 men – against a battalion of the Afrika Korps. One of the characters, Frenchie, has a bit I really appreciate:

    ~”I have seen 12 people executed.
    Hostages. The mayor,
    who has a white beard…
    …Madame Michelet was
    as big like a jelly…
    …Monsieur Le Pecq,
    who teaches the school…
    …Rosalie, who has
    hair like sunshine.
    I can do nothing.
    So lm no good for the underground.
    Too much hate in my eyes!”

    ~ And I feel like that today. People have been afraid of me today every time I go outside. Too much hate in my eyes! Hate for these lousy Rs and MAGA-hatters and stupid haters and Nazis and the fucking mess they have made of our nation.

    • Internet Hitler

    • Pre-Existing Condition Jack

      All of my favorite war movies are about people from diverse nations and backgrounds rallying together to fight a common enemy, the Nazis. So I definitely feel you there, and Sahara is a great movie!

      Ot, but my all time favorite Bogart movie is Desperate Hours.

      • Anna Elizabeth, Tank Grrl

        :) I’m glad you love Sahara too. Desperate Hours is a classic, my favorite is Key Largo, however. :)

        • Mehmeisterjr

          Key Largo has one of the greatest songs ever written by Benny Carter.

          Admittedly, the lyrics are somewhat clumsy, since they had to find rhymes for “Largo,” (“strange cargo,” anybody?) but Sarah Vaughan had a hit with it and could put it across:

          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_IO3OeYtPpI

          I had the great luck to have heard Benny Carter playing live on several occasions. A great musician and a great guy.

    Everyone is feuding in France right now. No one knew who Macron was 5 years ago. His party is just one year old. And the guy’s just won the presidency. Against all the traditional parties. If it weren’t such a serious subject, I’d say that’s quality trolling.

    • Mehmeisterjr

      Part of the reason for Macron’s victory is that the obvious front-runner, François Fillon, who had presented himself as the soul of propriety and practically wearing a halo over his head, turned out to have financial arrangements that benefited his wife and children in a manner that was perhaps legal but certainly didn’t meet the smell test for a saint on earth.

      I’m sure that Le Pen and Putin (pronounced like Poutine in France, despite the fact that “Putain,” French for “whore,” would be a closer fit) figured this would work to their advantage but it didn’t.

      But Macron and his new party doesn’t have a solid organization or known candidates for the legislature. That means he will have to put together a coalition and fast.

      I’m wishing him luck because another five years of rudderless government could give these neo-fascists, self-destructive as they are, another shot.

      • Lyly Sirivong

        Oh I know that. When Fillon won the primaries, I was so sure he was going to be the next president. Then “Penelopegate” happened.

        We’ll see how Macron fares for the legislative elections. It’s not going to be easy but who knows ? All the traditional parties are in disarray. Macron could benefit from that.

        Valls announced today that he’d join Macron’s party for the legislative elections. Anything can happen.

      • Bitter Scribe

    Not sure there are that many family get-togethers. Jean-Marie and his wife (Marine’s mother) are not only divorced but estranged. Same for Marine and her former husbands, plural. Same for Marion’s mother, Yann Le Pen, and her former husband, Samuel Maréchal, who anyway wasn’t Marion’s father.

    No judgment here, just another proof that politics and family are poor bed-fellows.

          • David Chaillou

            Yes, but who said people in France wanted Nazis ? While i’m sure Le Pen’s policies would be bloody awful, she’s still miles away from the Nazi league.

            Only the party name was changed.
            “CNN’s Amanpour Invokes Nazi Germany in Loss for French ‘Extreme Far Right’ Le Pen.”

            On Monday’s New Day, as CNN’s Christiane Amanpour informed viewers of the French presidential election results, she twice tagged defeated conservative candidate Marine Le Pen as “extreme” and “far right,” and also charged that she campaigned on “fear and hatred and loathing.”

            http://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/nb/brad-wilmouth/2017/05/08/cnns-amanpour-invokes-nazi-germany-loss-french-far-right-extremist

          • David Chaillou

            She’s undoubtedly a racist and a populist. Speaking as a Frenchman who’s watched French politics for 35 years, I am not sure that if in power she would go as far as the Italian fascists, and I am definitely convinced that she would be nothing like the Nazis.

            With all due respect to Mrs Amanpour, whom I remember as a young special envoy during the first gulf war, she is not particularly expert on France, and any comparison of Marine Le Pen to Nazi Germany is more than hyperbole.

          • ANNG14

            Le Pen wanted to get elected president based on fear, nationalism, and racism. What was so different?

          • David Chaillou

            She wants or claims to want to make brown people second-class citizens. Which is despicable but not in the same class as wanting to exterminate or even just expel them.
            In addition I think she would be bound in her policies by a number of safeguards in the French and European systems, which she could not touch without losing her popular base. Le Pen voters are not Trumptard, and French racism is not as vicious as American racism, although that’s probably not visible to an outsider. I guess this is where, as you say, the heritage and lesson of Nazi occupation is deeply ingrained in France.

          • ANNG14

            Hitler did not say anything about wanting to exterminate or even just expel Jews either when running for Chancellor of Germany. Wanting to make brown people second-class citizens is a slippery slope towards persecution. Don’t ever think it can’t happen again. Be vigilant.

          • David Chaillou

            Hitler’s program already stated that Jews would be excluded from citizenship in 1920. His racial theories were detailed in Mein Kampf in the mid-20s. Nazi brutality was in full display well before the 1933 elections. Comparing Le Pen to Hitler is quite a stretch.

          • ANNG14

            You can defend Le Pen, but second class brown people is on the same road, just not as advanced. Who knows what she would have done if she had the power that Hitler had.

  • After having tried to rebrand the party and give it a softer, less Nazified image, she now appears to want to move it to the center in order to make it slightly more palatable to the majority of French people.

    But still Nazis, right? They’re gonna BE Nazis no matter what she does.

    That being said – 35% is still a terrifying result. In France, that knows for Nazis.
