Emmanuel Macron won the French presidential election on Sunday over far-right candidate Marine Le Pen. The youngest president in France’s history, Macron claimed victory despite a last-minute leak of his campaign emails and some other details that came out just before the country’s media blackout prior to the election.
On Monday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Glenn Beck talked about the French peoples' final two options and why the choice of Macron only delayed the inevitable. He analyzed the election compared to the U.S. 2016 election and took a look at what the future could hold.
“The French people had two choices: delay the coming storm and maintain the status quo … or giving in to the old world European nationalism,” Glenn described the runoff election pitting socialist Macron against Le Pen’s far-right, nationalist agenda. While France made the better decision in the short term, they are only delaying the inevitable as the National Front Party gains power, Glenn warned.
Both extreme progressives and the alt-right are playing a long game, Glenn said, arguing that the reason the massive leak was dumped just prior to the media blackout was so the information can be dissected and used against Macron his entire presidency.
“What do they want? An insurrection. They want to burn the whole thing down,” he asserted. “France just took a massive step toward burning the whole thing down.”
