French Elections: Good News For John McCain

President Emmanuel Macron and Mme. Macron visit the 4th Reich

Axios morning mail thingie reports that France did not fall to Fascism (and I’m guessing the usual suspects in our Failed Political Press are having a sad):

French President Emmanuel Macron defeated far-right challenger Marine Le Pen by 17 points— 58.5% to 41.5%, Axios’ Dave Lawler and Laurin-Whitney Gottbrath report.

  • Why it matters: Macron is the first French president in 20 years to win a second term. Polls consistently showed him in the lead, but he had warned he could lose amid rising “extremist danger” he could lose.

Washington and Brussels were relieved, even though his victory was tighter than when he faced Le Pen in 2017.

Although Macron won, the real story, according to many outlets, is the growing power of the far right. Some hot takes from the media (not linked because, really, why?):

  • Macron wins, but the euro and French stocks slide.
  • French election: The maps that show why Emmanuel Macron should be worried ahead of upcoming National Assembly elections
  • French election: Historic win but Macron has polarised France
  • French President Macron wins re-election; far-right makes gains

Winning by 17 points is a landslide, but whatevs. It’s all Good News For John McCain!

    Fascinating. That reporting trend looks suspiciously similar to the reporting trend on Biden. Is our worldwide MSM in cahoots?

    • No this is our failed political press is simply applying the Standard Template: Democrats (or liberals in other countries) are always Doomed And In Disarray, while the authoritarian fascists are always sui generis, have no agency and must be met halfway along the Zeno’s Paradox Road to Tyranny By The Doomed Liberals In Disarray.

      See! So simple even a common Chuckles Toad could do it!
