Rightists are running away from the insane Putinist position. Good to see.

6 ( +9 / -3 )

The far-right leader angling to become prime minister after France’s upcoming parliamentary election backtracked Wednesday on his party’s previous promise to pull out of NATO’s strategic military command.

What a stupid thing to say. Something you expect of MAGA, because they are ignorant of all things foreign affairs, but I would have expected more from a European - even if they are right wing.

It cannot go on. Biden will be replaced by the Dems before the election. Too late for the shambles he has created in world affairs, not to mention the US.

There's nothing wrong with Biden. As you will see during the debates. But of course, you'll then just say that he was on drugs...

Too late for the shambles he has created in world affairs, not to mention the US.

Biden has united NATO to stand up to imperialist Russia. That's a good thing.

They're not smart people, the Putinists, so they could be making national security decisions off of a comedy sketch.

Obviously France is not gonna pull out, and obviously this has nothing to do with MAGA. Why the obsession to link everything to MAGA and US domestic politics?

There's nothing wrong with Biden.

Geez ...more than enough evidence of his dementia and cognitive decline everywhere.... and it is accelerating. Only die hard supporters pretend there is nothing wrong with him, most see otherwise.

As you will see during the debates. But of course, you'll then just say that he was on drugs...

More than likely he would be on something given his condition and age.

They are the only other ones talking about leaving NATO.

Geez ...more than enough evidence of his dementia and cognitive decline everywhere.... and it is accelerating.

I haven't seen any.

Only die hard supporters pretend there is nothing wrong with him, most see otherwise.

Well, no. There have been a few videos on X/Twitter, but then you find out that the video had been edited in a way to tell a misleading story.

You see what you want to see.

On the other hand, Trump seems to glitch at every rally these days.

Baseless claims.

These far right leaders who want to take their countries out of NATO must have a desire to grovel at Putin's feet. Why on earth would people want that?! Give up your standard of living in a free country to live like a serf in Russia. It doesn't make any sense, and the only ones who'd benefit would be the far right leaders who'd be rewarded by Russia for their treason.

On Tuesday, Macron took aim at a campaign pledge by the left-wing New Popular Front coalition to make it easier for people to change gender in their paperwork. 

Just plain silly

 right-wing candidates and independent media

What media? Give us a few links.

Please don’t waste our time dodging this request. The ‘independent media’ and ‘alternative media’ types often start playing infantile ‘wouldn’t you like to know?’ nonsense.

Cheers.

I guess going all-in on fan-boing a fascist isn’t such great politics in France after all.

I guess he realized how profitable it would be for him personally if he chose to remain in NATO...

Maybe he saw that pandering to pro-Putin types and conspiracy theorists wouldn’t do his electoral chances much good.

France is a pretty well educated country.

In times of War, the French are very good at Surrendering and waiting for someone to come to their rescue.

Quite possibly.

France is a pretty well educated country.

Agreed, as proven by the drubbing French voters handed to Macron's party in the EU elections.

Not sure what you are trying to say here?

Well educated people vote far right? Well educated people wanted to give him a black eye?

What do you think was proven?

In general, I find the left tend to be better educated. This isn’t a sneer. This observation can be backed up.

This is just your belief. Back it up.
