    Considering you're complaining about people saying things you don't like...
    You're complaining that people are calling Le Pen far right when she herself describes her self as far right...
    But that doesn't mean I need a safe space, Bornblue. Get your comebacks in order.

    Can you please explain to me your issue with people describing Le Pen as far right when she describes herself as far right? You seemed mightily offended.

    That's the sort of nonsense that SJW would take offence too...

    No, I'm not offended. It's simply a pet peeve of mine when parties/people are called 'far-right' when they aren't really far-right (regardless of how they may also describe themselves).

    Why do you think someone expressing discontent or disagreement means they're "offended"?

    I'd say it's win-win all round then - either hard-right or nationalist would do me nicely.

    So Le Pen describes herself as far right but when people then call her far right than annoys you? She pretty much is far-right socially. That's not a criticism per se, that's just a factually correct statement. In the same way that Corbyn is hard left economically or Dan Hannan hard right economically.
