Le Pen sparks controversy (again): 'Monsieur Ebola' could fix migration problems'

Jean-Marie Le Pen delivers a speech during a campaign meeting ahead of the European elections.

The founder and honorary president of the French far-right Front National (FN) party made the at least controversial comments while attending a campaign meeting in Marseille, France.

Ahead of this week’s European elections, the 86-year-old politician publicly considered that the Ebola virus could help solve what he called the world’s “massive immigration” problems.

“Three months of Ebola could solve the (global) demographic explosion,” Le Pen said alluding to the deadly virus that causes bleeding inside and outside the body, currently striking villages of Central and West Africa as wells as some African cities.

Father of FN leader Marie Le Pen, Jean-Marie Le Pen is seeking to renew his seay at the European Parliament. “My ideas are radical, even infectious. Monsieur Ebola could fix everything in three months,” he affirmed adding France is facing the “risk of sinking” due to the world’s “migration and poverty.”

Le Pen, who has been repeatedly condemned for his racist and harsh statements in his own country, based his “massive immigration problems” theory on the Muslim community.

“The problem of massive immigration is worsening in France due to a religious fact: a large part of these immigrants are Muslim, a religion that has a conquering will and feels stronger when it is more numerous,” the FN founder insisted.
