Emmanuel Macron became French President and held off his populist challenger Marine Le Pen by a wide margin last year, but although he won that battle, he may wind up losing the war. His popularity has completely bottomed out according to recent polling.
As Macron’s Popularity Tumbles To All Time Low, French Leader Hits Out at Europe’s ‘1930s’ Politics https://t.co/hH4xreiwlA

Macron is replacing the departing feminist shrew Angela Merkel of Germany as the defacto leader of the fledgling European Union project. Macron has frequently bemoaned populist right-wing leaders such as Hungary’s Viktor Orban or Italy’s Matteo Salvini, comparing them to Nazis and other totalitarians.
“I continue to maintain this. This expectation applies to everyone. First of all, to honour our fundamental values,” Macron said while lecturing eastern European nations that are bucking the EU consensus. Macron claims that these “humanist” values “confer personal freedom, shared responsibility and cultural diversity all at the same human level.”
He is even willing to use military might to defend these values against alleged threats from the United States, Russia and China.
“When I see President Trump announcing that he’s quitting a major disarmament treaty which was formed after the 1980s Euromissile crisis that hit Europe, who is the main victim? Europe and its security,” Macron said during a radio interview recently.
“We will not protect the Europeans unless we decide to have a true European army,” Mr Macron said.
Macron is willing to use military might to defend globalism, but isn’t willing to use it to defend against the ongoing invasion of the third-world. The French people are no longer fooled by his rhetoric, which is why Marine Le Pen’s Rassemblement National party has surged past Macron’s En Marche! party in preliminary polling for 2019’s European Union elections.
“[Mr Macron] is the defender of this new empire that is the European Union, and that crushes citizens living under its rule,” Le Pen said during a radio interview last week.
“It was empires that were at the origin of World War I, not nations,” Le Pen correctly noted.
As long as globalist rulers like Macron refuse to address problems within their nations such as immigration and borders, the populist right will continue to rise like a phoenix from the ashes of a collapsing Europe.
