Blair’s Law is observed in France, reports the New York Sun:

Jean-Marie Le Pen’s National Front is poised to strike an alliance with France’s large immigrant Muslim community.

Sounds weird, but these groups are a natural fit:

The National Front is surprisingly popular among Muslim immigrants or second-generation Muslim citizens. For all its campaigning about immigration, Mr. Le Pen’s party has always extended support to Arab and Islamic causes abroad, from Saddam’s Iraq to Arafat’s or Hamas Palestine, and from Al Qaeda to Iran. And it is as firmly anti-American and anti-Jewish as the Muslim community itself tends to be …

The National Front has always been a coalition of two very distinct political families: Neofascists, like Mr. Le Pen himself, and traditional, Christian right-wingers.

Neofascists think Jews and Americans are the chief enemy, rather than Arabs and Muslims. In a way, they even tend to celebrate Arabs and Muslims as fellow fascists.

This follows a recent decline in support for Le Pen, who was oddly silent during last year’s Car-B-Q season. Turns out he may have spent that time re-positioning his party. (By the way, that definition of “neofascist” applies to any number of Australian leftoids. Perhaps it will catch on.)

UPDATE. Peter Caress emails: ”I propose the Caress Conjecture upon Blair’s Law: the rate at which the world’s idiocies are joining is always increasing.”

    1. It always helps if you want to gas the same people.

    1. There has been connection with the Islamists, far right and far left for decades when it comes to the Jews.

    1. Wankers like lePen have always used other wankers(hamas) to fight their proxy wars.

    1. The force all the world’s idiots are gathering into may be giant and useless, but it’s also extremely dangerous.

    1. “Neofascists think Jews and Americans are the chief enemy, rather than Arabs and Muslims. In a way, they even tend to celebrate Arabs and Muslims as fellow fascists.”

      Fellow fascists? Not really. The twisted kinship that has developed owes its existence to mutual anti-semitism, loathing of the United States, and the historical ‘auld alliance’ that the Nazis forged with so many Muslims (in Europe and the Middle East).

      I very much doubt the Fuhrer’s victorious Germania would have long peacefully co-existed with the neighboring Caliphate.

    1. Does this mean that LePen sympathizer Brigette Bardot will begin wearing a burqa? I realize she’s past her ‘sell by date’ but I always liked her looks—-not her politics.

    1. I thought Blair’s Law was about global warming protests causing cold weather. Is there more than one?

    1. If Le Pen was “oddly silent during last year’s Car-B-Q season”, the French media black-out on him might have something do to with it:

      “Le Pen claims that the French media marginalized him, even during the riots, though FN has made immigration the center of its platform. During a recent interview with me at his home, Le Pen said, “The politically correct forbids any link be established between immigration and the riots. Everybody knows it, but you can’t say it.” …

      Le Pen denies he is any of the things his detractors call him, but he protests what he calls the censorship of his views by the French media. He tells me the French media spend more time talking about him than allowing him to speak for himself. During the rioting last fall, he says 50 foreign journalists interviewed him, but no French reporters.”

      From a fawning interview by Cal Thomas:

    1. The evidence for Blair’s Law […] grows stronger and stronger

      The only problem there is that evidence grows for theories, not laws.

      Even Einstein doesn’t get to have a “law”…

    1. I’m sorry, but the idea of schoolchildren in math classes being forced to learn about the Blair/Caress Derivative is just too horrible to contemplate…

    1. Good thing I’m not a Christian, because I can wish a couple of savage beatings on LePen by his newfound Muslim friends (the likes that Galloway received last year for not being extremist enough) without feeling too ashamed.

    1. In the end the French will have to “take to the streets” like in the old days, except this time it won’t be the “Aristocrats” (except Emperor Chirac perhaps)
      They have been well betrayed by both sides of their political spectrum .

    1. You know what they always say about birds of a feather.  Goes double for assholes.

    1. Fascists and Moslems have always worked hand in hand; they both hate the Jews.

      Piers Ackerman refers to some Moslem’s groups as Islamo-Fascists.

      It’s a perfect fit; and also, both tried/try for world supremacy

    1. For the Nazi/Moslem discussion see:

      It was the Turks (during the genocide of the Armenians) who came up with disposing of bodies using ovens.

      The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem had already made arrangements to hand of Palestine’s Jews to the Nazis – had Rommel won in North Africa
