Hailing from Paris’s suburbs, 23-year-old Jordan Bardella who helped to lead the successful European election campaign for Marine Le Pen’s populist National Rally party has earned a seat for himself in the European Parliament.
Bardella represents the fresh face of France’s preeminent national populist party.
In a recent statement given to the press about his party National Rally which is often smeared by the globalist press as ‘extreme’, Bardella said, “I take issue with the term ‘extreme right,’ which is usually used by the opposition…The parties that are at our side are sovereignist parties. These are people who have been brought here in a democratic way by the people.”
Bardella first became a member of the National Rally when he was just 16-years-old. In May’s European election, the right-wing populist party surged in the polls, relegating French President Emmanuel Macron’s La République En Marche party to the second-most popular party in France.
Along with Italy’s interior minister Matteo Salvini, Marine Le Pen and other National Rally leaders have helped to forge the European Parliament’s newest political group: the Identity and Democracy party. This bloc of national populists in the EU’s parliament seek to limit the power of globalist bureaucrats in Brussels and hand it back to individual nation-states.
“There are more and more French people and people in general who challenge the functioning of the European Union,” Bardella asserted.
“Many people wonder, ‘what is the point of it?’ and many French citizens note that it is incapable of protecting them,” he said.
Bardella says that he plans to defend French people who have been “forgotten” by Macron’ and his political allies.
