France is going to be transformed after today’s horror, or France will die. Having spent the holiday season in the South of France I can aver with some authority that the plutocrats are worried. They know that the chattering classes in the nation’s capital – led by the idiots of Bernard Henri Levy’s ilk – are on a long road to national suicide.

Marine Le Pen is suddenly salonfahig where her father was considered unclubbable but a decade ago. There is hope. The socialist consensus is not working.

Today’s murder of cartoonists who dared disrespect the paedophile Islamic monster – the satanic prophet of doom – will make or break this once-great nation. Some serious reexamination of France’s identity is long overdue.

It cannot and will not happen under Hollande. France will bounce back, or she will die.
