Antifa Leader on National Security Watchlist Elected to French National Assembly


An extremist Antifa leader who is on France’s national security watchlist has been elected to the National Assembly as a member of the New Popular Front leftist bloc.

The official spokesman of the Lyon Antifa collective “Jeune Garde Antifasciste (Young Antifascist Guard) in Lyon, Raphaël Arnault will represent the first constituency of Vaucluse in Provence in the French parliament after beating out populist National Rally candidate Catherine Jaouen with 54.98 per cent of the vote in Sunday’s second round of legislative elections, Le Figaro reports.

Arnault’s candidacy, which was backed by far-left Jean-Luc Mélenchon’s La France Insoumise (LFI) party — a member of the New Popular Front alliance — sparked controversy after it was revealed that the Antifa radical had an “S-file”, meaning that he is on the French government’s national security watchlist. more

  1. I think I’ll make a point to avoid the summer Olympics in Paris. I’ve never thought it was important to go to France but you couldn’t get me to go there now for anything.

  2. This should be a lesson to anyone who wants to end the electoral college.
    One city in France has turned the country into a communist hell hole.
    This is exactly what would happen here if we were a “democroocy”.

  3. I’m praying that this year’s Paris Olympics is not a murderous repeat of 72’s Munich Olympics where the Black September terrorist group affiliated with the PLO and Yassar Arafat killed 11 Israeli athletes. I’m afraid all hell will break loose if that happens.

  4. My favorite early 70’s folk rock band was Mason Proffit. Their 1973 LP album Bareback Rider had a very haunting song almost like a lament about the 72 Munich massacre of 11 Israeli athletes called Black September/Belfast which is still worth listening to today. Give it a listen and hear for yourself, it’s that good.

  5. I first heard Two Hangman by Mason Proffit almost by accident in fall of 1970 when I was a Senior in HS and listening to our local progressive rock station KREM FM. The DJ announced it as a think song, and I loved it from the first time that I heard it. John Michael Talbot of Mason Proffitt went on to become one of the best Catholic Christian musicians ever and has many excellent albums over the past 50 years that I still listen to regularly. The God of Life is my all-time favorite album from Mr. Talbot which always draws me closer to God whenever I listen to it.
