Follies Trumpfrancia

Donald Trump’s election in the U.S. has given a fresh boost to conservative leaders in what may be the next major populist battleground, France, where Le Pen is convinced that her anti-immigration, anti-Islam views can lead her to the presidency in five months.

This blog was more prepared to address the Great Cultural Shift to the Extreme Right, than any newspaper in the world. If Marine Le Pen wins, she promises to bring her Fascist French Brand to America, and share in the afterglow of  The Trumpire. We can assume this Nazi Strumpet is supportive of Trump’s tax cuts for the rich. Is Mr. American Empire Builder, planning special tariffs for Marine’s France? How about the Russians?

On this day, I found the Stechschritt Can-Can Movement! My forefathers fled to Chile after we lost the 1848 Revolution. We taught the Chilean Army the goose-step, known as the Stechschritt. We had nothing to do with the Nazis. We were, and still are, Socialist Freethinkers that were Hitler’s enemies. We put on Union uniforms and went into Trump’s beloved Red States, and kicked Confederate butt. Trump wanted a military parade at his inauguration. You know he wanted goose-steppers like the ones they got in North Korea.

Gone are the days of the Tree Hugger Fair Weather Army, who upon seeing any threat from the right, go running in all directions looking for a tree to hug – and hide behind as they smoke a bowl.  You know Ann Poulter admires the Stechschritt, but has to settle for her beloved outlaw bikers covered in Swastikas. The Stechschritt Can-Can Movement will protect every Jew, and every synagogue.

When a boatload of French goodies docks in America, the American Can-Canettes will lead the march to the shore. Note the crate-knife the Chilean army is carrying. We will open French crates, line up Le Pen’s crap on the dock, and – kick her shit into the sea! We will steal the Can-Can from France. The Canettes will go underground and stop the French Strumpettes we see behind Le Pen, they paid from the slush fund Rachel Maddow is pointing out. The Gross Locker Room Boys are aching to pinch a French maiden, or two. They will be kicked in the can, and tossed into the bay!

Our goal is to make millions of white supremist and neo-Confederates, jealous of us. Goose-step people are found all over the world, many in Latino nations that Trump is building a wall to keep out. We will kick his wall – down!

Kick! Kick! Can Can!

They could hardly be more different: Pro-European centrist Emmanuel Macron is facing anti-immigration, anti-EU Marine Le Pen in France’s presidential runoff May 7.

Here’s a look at just a few of the ways the two candidates diverge:


Macron is fierily promoting common European ideals of peace, prosperity and freedom. He says that, with Britain leaving, the bloc needs to build a new leadership base anchored by France and Germany.

He wants the bloc to be able to deploy 5,000 European border guards to the external borders of the Schengen passport-free travel zone, and proposes a European fund to finance and develop shared military equipment.

Le Pen, on the other hand, wants to pull France from the European Union. She advocates for closing France’s borders, protectionist trade policies and dropping the shared euro currency to return to the French franc. She promised to restore France as a sovereign state in charge of its own borders and money supply, and to crack down on immigration.

She considers Macron “an immigrationist” because he has backed German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s policies to welcome refugees from Syria.

Le Pen asked a television program to remove the European flag from the stage during her speech. During Macron’s rallies, by contrast, many supporters wave European flags alongside French flags.

The Forty-Eighters were Europeans who participated in or supported the revolutions of 1848 that swept Europe. In the German states, the Forty-Eighters favored unification of the German people, a more democratic government, and guarantees of human rights.[1] Disappointed at the failure of the revolution to bring about the reform of the system of government in Germany or the Austrian Empire and sometimes on the government’s wanted list because of their involvement in the revolution, they gave up their old lives to try again abroad. Many emigrated to the United States, England, and Australia after the revolutions failed. These emigrants included Germans, Czechs, Hungarians, and others. Many were respected and politically active, wealthy, and well-educated; as such, they were not typical immigrants. A large number went on to be very successful in their new countries.

In the Americas[edit]


After being advised by Bernhard Eunom Philippi among others, Karl Anwandter emigrated to Chile following the failed revolution. In 1850 he settled in Valdivia.[2] He was joined there by numerous other German immigrants of the period.

United States[edit]

St. Louis Turnverein, 1860

Germans migrated to developing midwestern and southern cities, developing the beer and wine industries in several locations, and advancing journalism; others developed thriving agricultural communities.

Galveston, Texas was a port of entry to many Forty-Eighters. Some settled there and in Houston, but many settled in the Texas Hill Country in the vicinity of Fredericksburg. Due to their liberal ideals, they strongly opposed Texas‘s secession in 1861. In the Bellville area of Austin County, another destination for Forty-Eighters, the German precincts voted decisively against the secession ordinance.[3]

More than 30,000 Forty-Eighters settled in what became called the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio. There they helped define the distinct German culture of the neighborhood, but in some cases also brought a rebellious nature with them from Germany. Cincinnati was the southern terminus of the Miami and Erie Canal, and large numbers of emigrants from modern Germany, beginning with the Forty-Eighters, followed the canal north to settle available land in western Ohio.

In the Cincinnati Riot of 1853, in which one demonstrator was killed, Forty-Eighters violently protested the visit of the papal emissary Cardinal Gaetano Bedini, who had repressed revolutionaries in the Papal States in 1849.[4] Protests took place also in 1854; Forty-Eighters were held responsible for the killing of two law enforcement officers in the two events.[5]

Many German Forty-Eighters settled in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, helping solidify that city’s progressive political bent and cultural Deutschtum. The Acht-und-vierzigers and their descendants contributed to the development of that city’s long Socialist political tradition.[6] Others settled throughout the state.

In the United States, most Forty-Eighters opposed nativism and slavery, in keeping with the liberal ideals that had led them to flee Europe. In the Camp Jackson Affair in St. Louis, Missouri, a large force of German volunteers helped prevent Confederate forces from seizing the government arsenal just prior to the beginning of the American Civil War.[7] About two hundred thousand German-born soldiers enlisted in the Union Army, that was about 10% of Lincoln’s entire armed forces. 13,000 Germans served in Union Volunteer Regiments from New York alone.

After the Civil War, Forty-Eighters supported improved labor laws and working conditions. They also advanced the country’s cultural and intellectual development in such fields as education, the arts, medicine, journalism, and business.

Many were members of the Turner movement.
