The article discusses about the character of Antonine Pinay, who was an obscure businessman until he became Premier of France. The outstanding anti-communist newspaper of the French Left, "The Pranc-Tireur" commented that the old French Right has found its revival through Pinay. The decline of General Charles de Gaulle and his brand of authoritarian nationalism brings forward a worse brand that resembles the New Nazism in Western Germany and the New Fascism in Italy. There is practically no chance that Pinay himself would lead France toward Fascism, but there is a chance that he could pave the way toward a modified French equivalent.
