Marine Le Pen: France's National Front is not Right wing

France's National Front (FN) is considering legal action in a bid to force the country's media to stop referring to the anti-immigration, anti-EU party as "extreme right".

Party leader Marine Le Pen claims it is unfair for the party founded by her father Jean-Marie Le Pen to be lumped together with the likes of Norwegian mass killer Anders Behring Breivik and Greece's New Dawn party.
"We are absolutely not a party of the right, those who think that are making a total analytical error," Marine Le Pen said on Thursday.
"I'm considering seeking a judicial ruling that the description 'extreme right' is a pejorative term deliberately used to damage the National Front.
"For journalists to label the FN like this is unethical, biased and intellectually sloppy."
Since taking over as the head of the FN in 2011, Marine Le Pen has attempted to reposition a party whose image has long been closely linked to the personality of her father, target of a string of convictions for incitement to racial hatred and holocaust denial.
Under her leadership, the FN has expelled overtly racist activists and selected a number of ethnic minority candidates for local elections.
Such steps have been dismissed as window dressing by anti-racism groups but the FN's appeal does appear to be broadening.
Recent polls have suggested the party will take around 16 percent of first round votes in municipal elections next March and the mainstream right is embroiled in a debate over whether it should contemplate a degree of electoral cooperation with the FN, previously considered taboo.
Mr Le Pen recently dismissed suggestions the FN was becoming more moderate under his daughter's leadership.
"Nothing has changed, even if Marine is a young woman and I'm an old campaigner," he said.
"The political line of the movement has not moved. Extreme clarity, extreme courage - that is the only extremism I see in us."

Good luck Marie, you will need it, with the likes of the extreme fascist Zionist, Manuel Valls et al in the driving seat!
The Neo-Stalinists (left-wing Liberals to be PC) use this tag for absolutely everyone who does not share their perverse and idiotic views and then subject them to their slanderous and violent violent methods of suppressing dissent! (see the disgusting treatment of the Vikernes family and tell me who resemble Nazis!!!)
Roll on the civil war I say.....

I still think that breivik was a false flag attacker.
