Consternation on the left follows the good showing made by Marine LePen and the FN Party in France.
Tiberge at Gallia Watch gives thorough coverage on the election, at the linked article above.
From her article:
“The press plays up the “shock” as if it were a terrorist attack, an atomic explosion, an invasion from Mars. A patriotic party wants to restore sanity, hence the insane go into shock.”
The left is the same everywhere; they live in their make-believe world, in which they are the ”good guys” hence the intrusion of reality usually ”shocks” them.
[Aside: I miss our French commenter from the old days, ‘zazie.’ Zazie, if you are out there, stop by and tell us your thoughts about this election.]
