Bill Wirtz quoted on the rise of Marion Le Pen in U.S. politics – FRANCE 24

The inclusion of renowned European nationalists at a recent conference of US conservatives (CPAC) and the change of government language about immigrants suggests a shift toward European-style populist nationalism within the reigning faction of the GOP.

“This idea that she is sort of more moderate, that really is confusing,” said Brussels-based libertarian pundit Bill Wirtz. “I’m not sure where they got that idea. You couldn’t have imagined Marion Le Pen being invited two years ago,” Wirtz said. “Some people have been invited to say things that you can’t say yet as a Republican. That’s where I am very worried –for the future condition.”
