“Marine Le Pen seeks to exploit Champs Elysees shooting amid fears killing could influence election”
"Terror fears" have been fueling politicians in the West for 15 years, so pointing a finger at Le Pen is hypocritical and quite dishonest.
God knows, Theresa May made a huge deal out of a mentally ill man with a record of violence who stabbed people in London.
It was the kind of unfortunate event which has happened in cities all around the world for centuries, never being given any political interpretation, until now, when certain governments want to instill fear regularly in support of their own brutal international policies.
That killer in London was no more a terrorist than my little pet dog.
And just so for the police killer in Paris. He had a long record of violence towards police, apparently having served long years in prison.
He was not a terrorist. He was a sick, violent man. All societies do have them, you know.
And papers like The Independent and The Guardian have expended countless words ginning-up needless fears of terror in support of British government policy.
So, it would be nothing new for Le Pen to gain some support from this manufactured constituency.
I do hope she wins, not for fear of terror but for some intelligent and bold policies for France.
Hollande has been an utter disaster.
Paris's past genuine terror attacks relate more to his slavish groveling after American policy in the Mideast than anything else. Young men seeking revenge for what was done to their homes and families.
Hollande was always right in there along with the pathetic David Cameron doing America's dirty work in secret while pretending for the public that he was fighting terror.
The dirty work is simply the self-proclaimed, God-like right to decide who rules in other countries, an arrogant and violent idea that is about as far from democracy and decency as you can get.
The only governments genuinely fighting terror right now are Syria, Russia, and Iran.
