Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It's not like we haven't been warned.

From what I understand, the group is mostly made up of Americans. Their main challenge will be how to post on French FB pages without looking obviously "foreign". They may also not be much attuned to the issues du jour in French politics: little coverage of France on Fox News (other than the ridiculously comic) and I don't expect they read Le Figaro or listen to RMC. Not sure how effective they will, unless they hire genuine French provocateurs.

The so-called "fachosphere" does exist on the French web with places like Francais de Souche and other stinkholes; their success at putting people on the street have been very limited. The FN apparatus itself has been much more successful at drawing crowds, using, yes, FB and Twitter.
