United States Republicans invite French racist

This 29 April 2017 video says about itself:

Is France’s National Front still fascist? – UpFront (Reality Check)

Marine Le Pen, who recently resigned temporarily as leader of the National Front (FN), is now facing off against centrist Emmanuel Macron for France’s top spot.

Though she has stepped down temporarily, she remains a member of the FN, a party founded by her father, Jean-Marie Le Pen, and a former Vichy Nazi, Leon Gaultier, which now supports her candidacy.

So has the party changed at all? In this week’s Reality Check, we examine whether the party has shed its fascist past.

CPAC 2018: Far-right politician Marion Maréchal-Le Pen to address conservative conference after Mike Pence

Moderate Republicans express concern at far right leader’s invite

The niece of French far right leader Marine Le Pen has been invited to address American Republicans at an annual Conservative conference in Washington.

Marion Marechal-Le Pen will take to the stage shortly after Vice President Mike Pence at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference.

President Donald Trump will also speak at the convention and former UKIP leader Nigel Farage will be in attendance.

Ms Marechal-Le Pen’s presence has nonetheless sparked divisions, with some moderate Republicans cautious about associating with a far-right figure.

Breitbart editor Raheem Kassam wrote on Twitter: “Brilliant that Marion Marechal-Le Pen is speaking at CPAC. Even more amazing that the RINOs (Republican In Name Only) are *FREAKING OUT*.” …

​The former youth star of the French far-right, and granddaughter of Front National founder Jean-Marie Le Pen, is known for being more religious and socially conservative than her aunt.

The 27-year-old has also been billed by many as a potential future leader of the Front National party, which her aunt still heads.
