Marine Le Pen accused Newsnight presenter Emily Maitlis of wanting war “at all costs” during a heated interview, ahead of the French election recently.
After a series of questions about Le Pen’s relationship with Vladimir Putin and Russia’s role on the world stage, Ms Maitlis asked if France would defend the Baltic states or the Ukraine against a theoretical invasion from the former Soviet nation.
Le Pen sternly let her thoughts be known when she said: “You want war at all costs! What is your problem? You want to go to war! Do you like war? You want conflicts – you want us to start World War Three. At the moment no one wants to go to war with anyone.
“I’m happy to go into all the hypotheses, but no one is going to war with anyone – no one wants to go to war with anyone else. There was a territorial conflict with Ukraine – these things happen.
“Now it has to be resolved diplomatically, and I think France’s voice has weight as long as France is France, not a region of the EU. Honestly, if you’re trying to say that Russia is a military danger to European countries, I think you’re mistaken in your analysis.”
The Front National leader met with Putin for the first time in Moscow last week after repeatedly and rightfully praising the Russian leader for his policies.
She once again showed her support for the populist policies of Putin and Trump, saying: “There’s Russia, which doesn’t deserve to be treated with prejudice. It hasn’t led any campaigns against European countries, or the US.
“What I notice is that Putin’s government must be pretty popular with Russians, given that it is constantly being reelected.”
She described herself as the “anti-Merkel” and condemned the German chancellor’s economic, monetary and migrant policies.
Le Pen also said: “She’s increasingly isolated, because the policies I represent are the policies represented by Mr Trump and Mr Putin, and the British people made it clear they want to go in that direction.
“The EU is almost already over – rather than waiting for its chaotic collapse, I suggest we organise its transformation to a Europe of nations while respecting the wishes of the European people. The EU is shining with the light of a dead star.”
The only people who benefit from wars are the global capitalists, as they have done for decades. Leaders like Marine Le Pen and Vladimir Putin realise this. It’s what makes the likes of the BBC and their traitorous presenters like Maitlis – who are deliberately promoting the capitalist agenda, froth at the mouth.

The BNP would like to wish Marine Le Pen all the very best for the upcoming election. France needs a leader with a backbone. Like Britain, the French people have suffered for far too long being governed by wet liberals, who do not have the interests of France or its people at heart.
