    French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen said that NATO exists only ‘to serve Washington’s objectives’, and that she planned to hold a Brexit-style referendum, in an interview with a Greek newspaper.
    Le Pen, the leader of France's far-right National Front and a candidate for the 2017 presidential elections, is known for her Euroscepticism and anti-immigrant views. Together with France, she also suggested that Portugal, Italy, Spain, Ireland, Greece and Cyprus should also leave the European Union.

    “Frexit will be a part of my policy,” she said in an interview with Dimokratia. “The people must have the opportunity to vote for the liberation from slavery and blackmail imposed by technocrats in Brussels to return sovereignty to the country.”



    Along with her main rival, the center-right Francois Fillon, Le Pen has called for closer ties with Russia and has criticized NATO expansion into eastern Europe. Le Pen said that she would take France out of the alliance if she became president because, as she said, its existence is no longer needed.

    “It was established when there was a risk from the Warsaw Pact and the expansionism of the communist Soviet Union,” said Le Pen. “The Soviet Union no longer exists, and neither does the Warsaw Pact. Washington maintains the NATO presence to serve its objectives in Europe.”

    On the topic of immigration, Le Pen said she supported measures to restrict the flow of asylum seekers into Europe.

    “I am against the policy which would promote the entry of immigrants into Europe, which cannot accept them … this tsunami of migrants should be limited. Europe does not have the power to ensure they all find work and opportunities to enrich themselves. Immigrants are illegal since once they set foot on European soil ... they have violated the law. They must be sent back to their homeland. "

    Thank Merkel and her EU cronies for their open door asylum shopper policy, which got every reasonable person in Europe pissed (SJWs excluded). As far as NATO is concerned, it's an outdated dinosaur. USSR has dissolved for over 25 years and Russia does not pose the same level of threat, regardless of MSM fear-mongering attempts. Today's Russia has less than half the population of USSR, and probably 1/3 the size of the economy with a much reduced military. It's not invading Europe anytime soon.

    I agree with everything other than leaving the EU. Europeans are stronger when they are united. If you don't like the current system then push for reform - not its destruction. A fragmented Europe will bring back a lot of old world problems. Some French think if they are cut loose from Brussels they can bring back the glory days of the Empire/Republic (similar to how dumbass English envisioned a return of Britain on the world stage post Brexit by strengthening ties to the Commonwealth). There is no economic basis for these claims and France will only grow weaker economically and politically. I think center-right parties with leanings towards the far right in regards to immigration whilst retaining the EU's socialist policies such as universal healthcare is the proper way forward.
