Led by Marion Marechal-Le Pen, the 24 year-old granddaughter of neo-Nazi National Front founder Jean-Marie Le Pen, who has been convicted multiple times of inciting racial hatred, today Manif Pour Tous yet again staged massive anti-gay rallies in Paris and Lyon, where tens of thousands marched against LGBT families. The granddaughter, seen in the first clip below, is the youngest person ever elected to France’s Parliament… the theme of today’s protest is anger over the right of same-sex couples to use surrogacy to build their families. A member of France’s opposition UMP party is live-tweeting many photos from the event.
It’s amazing, still, to me how much these people care and think it’s their business to stick their noses into other people’s families. Or is this all about using us, once again, as a wedge issue?
