“Mme Le Pen, we've never had much doubt about the reactionary and profoundly anti-humanist breeding ground of your political thinking, but with your words you've just exposed the very essence of the Front National: embodying Capital's watchdog.' A dog trained to bark at any movement that promotes equality and social justice, surfing on any confusion to keep the citizen away from any kind of complex political reflection. The raison d'être of your political inspiration has been and remains "the last joker in the pack to maintain the interests of the powerful".”
