Blue, White and Red Rally

Blue, White and Red Rally ( French : Bleu Blanc Rouge Rally ) is a French nationalist political organization [1] in France founded by Jean-Marie Le Pen .

History

The family feud between expelled French National Front founder Jean-Marie The Pen and Marine The Pen , his daughter, deepened on September 5, 2015 when he launched the rival right-wing party. Mr. Le Pen, 87, who was expelled from the FN in August 2015, told supporters in the city: ‘You will not be orphans. We can act in a similar way to the FN, even if we are not part of it. [2]

Marine Le Pen, leader of the National Front remarked ‘He does not know what he wants, he is a free man.’ The row with her father erupted in April 2014, when he defended comments he had made in the past about the Nazi gas chambers of the Second World Warwere a ‘detail’ of history. Ms. Le Pen, who succeeded her father as leader in 2011, dismissed his move. Mr. Le Pen was stripped of his FN membership by the party’s executive committee in August following a damaging five-month family feud with his daughter over a string of inflammatory comments. He dismissed the hearing as an ‘mockery’ and an ‘ambush’ and blamed Ms. Le Pen, who took over from him in 2011, of pulling the strings from afar. ‘It’s dirty to kill your own daddy, so she did not kill daddy directly, she did it through her henchman,’ Mr. Le Pen told French radio at the time. The elder The Pen has been a persistent problem for the past few years. The final straw came in April when he rehashed familiar comments about the gas chambers and said France should get along with Russia to save the ‘white world’. Ms. Le Pen then openly split with her father, saying he was committing ‘political suicide’. But he vowed to ‘reconquer’ the party he founded in 1972.[3] [4] [5]

He confirmed he would support his granddaughter Marion Marshal-Le Pen for the next regional elections and that he wanted to influence the National Front’s ideology with his association. He also praised Marine The Pen’s Speech in Marseille on September 6, 2015, describing it as “the penitentiary”. [6]
