    Sarkozy compared to Vichy leader for courting far right - FRENCH ELECTIONS 2012 - FRANCE 24


    Two French left-wing newspapers have published damning articles likening President Nicolas Sarkozy to WWII-era leader Marshall Philippe P├ętain for wooing far-right voters ahead of the May 6 runoff in the country’s presidential election.
    By Tony Todd (text)

    French President Nicolas Sarkozy and his aides on Wednesday accused the left-wing press of “intellectual terrorism” for comparing the incumbent leader’s flirting with extreme right voters with wartime collaboration with the Nazis.

    No, just like he isn't courting Marine Le Pen and her party now. He is going after her voters.

    As for the socialist candidate, he is courting both the voters of the extreme and anti-democratic left and their leaders and parties.

    Just off the top of my head I would say two things right wingers and fascist have in common are their radical hate of Communusm and their radical Nationalism.
