For those of you who have been following the French elections, the first round of voting is over, and both major presidential candidates, far-left Emmanuel Macron and far-right Marine Le Pen, will be moving on to the second and final round.
All eyes right now are on Le Pen, the French equivalent of Donald Trump. As such, those of you who know me will probably guess that I "support" her like I "support" Trump--which is to say that I'd rather support having a root canal and colonoscopy at the same time!
However, as much as I do not care for her, I cannot deny that there's an appeal to her, especially considering recent events in Europe.
When your continent is experiencing a terrorist attack every other week, with mass rapes and sharia patrols in between, the female Trump promising to kick out all the Muslims seems far more appealing than the wimpy socialist who insists that terrorism "will be a fact of daily life"!
Say what you want about mass shootings over here in America and how our politicians react to them, but at least you don't have the president of the NRA telling us that we need to accept school shootings as a "fact of daily life"!
Look, you all know me and my positions on the War on Terror. I believe that counter-terrorist measures have been counter-productive at best, and I oppose Trump's travel bans and attack on refugees. And if Le Pen gets elected, she's probably going to be pushing for the same policies.
However, when your country, if not your entire continent, is suffering from problems wrought by radical Islam, and you refuse to even acknowledge that there's a problem, don't blame them if they chose to vote for Trump with a pussy over your indifferent pussy ass!
