Populist Right-wing is as Populist Right-wing Does

French candidate Marine Le Pen says France will not allow dual citizenships with states outside the EU under her prospective government. EU member states must allow dual citizenships among the Union by treaty.

Does any of this sound familiar? (Hint: I might have emphasized it in bold.)

Haaretz.com:

Le Pen said that the ban will also apply to citizens of the U.S. and North African countries, but that dual citizens of the EU and of Russia, which she said is part of she termed the “Europe of nations,” will be exempted.

That Russia’s doing pretty good among rising populist whack-jobs.
