She may come from a xenophobic political tradition and be a rabble rousing populist on Putin’s payroll, but damn, Marine Le Pen gets it done. What a contrast to the spineless dithering Swedish “feminist government” representatives who were eager to submit to the demands of a gender essentialist theocratic government eager to make non-believers conform to their primitive and strange religious practices.
