Le Pen senior pays hommage to dictator Pinochet

France’s godfather of the far right Jean Marie Le Pen paid hommage to the dictator Augusto Pinochet in a ‘private visit’ to Chile this weekend. The former President and now honorary chairman of the Front National was among a number of fascist and extreme right-wingers from the US, Spain, Argentina and France who were invited to the showing of new documentary that seeks to rehabilitate the General who ruled the south American country with an iron fist between 1973 and 1981 after overthrowing the democratically elected government of Salvador Allende.  Jean Marie apparently stood in for his daughter, Marine Le Pen who has taken over from him as head of the Front National and is standing in parliamentary elections Sunday in a the Pas-de-Calais constituency in the north of the country. Anti-fascists protested Saturday in Paris against Le Pen. Sources http://noticias.terra.cl: Pensee Libre
