    Uh oh

    Looks like the lefties will have to have to switch back to Venezuela as their prime example of socialist paradise

    I really don't know where I stand on this.

    If a Muslim lady can honestly say she's not compelled to wear a sack, then who are we (liberal societies) to tell her she can't?

    Then again, even if she truly believes she's not compelled, isn't she compelled by the belief structure at a basic level?

    Further, given Europe's ongoing Islamist terrorism fears, this makes some sort of sense in terms of security, but at the same time may result in a backlash.

    im not sure if i understand the premise of the thread. im against telling people what to wear but its not (in my opinion) a huge part of leftist orthodoxy. Some on the left believe in literally banning all religions

    Macron is centrist neolib technocrat, the only reason the left cheered his victory was that Le Pen was the alternative

    I couldn't have voted for Le Pen (I would have just voted for the down ticket races) but I doubt she would have been any worse than Macron.

    In fact in some ways she would have been better from a leftist perspective. Its just a dangerous bridge to fascism to accept nationalist governments just cause they have a good healthcare policy or whatever.

    So if Macron is an object of leftwing adoration does that make Le Pen a hero of the right?

    well this thread got off to a bad start and just got shitter didn't it

    in summary for any uninformed right wingers: denmark isn't socialist, venezuela isn't either (?), macron isn't left wing.
