With such an abundance one would think that the Popular Republican Union and their leader, Mr. Asselineau, were popular in French society. Would these stickers stay up without a level of support? Well, if Wikipedia is correct, it seems they are only the veneer of legitimacy.
Asselineau has had a troubled relationship with the media, which he has repeatedly accused of "censorship". In his critique he includes French Wikipedia, which has considered him insufficiently noteworthy to justify a page in the encyclopedia. The activism of his supporters to try and increase media coverage of Asselineau and the UPR has been noted by some observers.He ran in the 2017 French presidential election, presenting himself as the “Frexit candidate”. He was eventually eliminated in the first round, earning only 0.92% of the votes.
If I recall correctly, Merab Mamardashvili once said something along the lines of "political beliefs are expressed most often in accordance with the amount of resistance they receive." Seems like that might apply here.
