Apparently they are finally starting to realize there actually are more important issues afoot than racism, gay pride, etc. You know--issues like, survival and making sure they don't all end up under sharia law?

Because, sadly, our collective memory of history doesn't go back that far. People still seem to believe the falsehood that the "conservatives" or the "far-right" don't come with the inherent racism and xenophobia befitting any despot.

ISIS will greet the LGBT community with open arms, apparently some people believe.

Anybody who believes those are the only two options on the table are deluding themselves...

Out of curiosity, do you know anything about these guys?
Or do you just see "right" and therefore you like them. Cuz details. They're confusing to you, eh?
Marine Le Pen described Russian President Vladimir Putin as a "defender of the Christian heritage of European civilisation."[192] The National Front considers that Ukraine has been subjugated by the United States, through the Ukrainian crisis. The National Front denounces anti-Russian feelings in Eastern Europe and the submission of Western Europe to NATO's interests in the region.[193]
....
Luke Harding wrote in The Guardian that the National Front's MEPs were a "pro-Russian bloc."[196] In 2014, the Nouvel Observateur said that the Russian government considered the National Front "capable of seizing power in France and changing the course of European history in Moscow's favour."[197] According to the French media, party leaders had frequent contact with Russian ambassador Alexander Orlov and Marine Le Pen made multiple trips to Moscow.[198] In May 2015, one of her advisers, Emmanuel Leroy, attended an event in Donetsk marking the "independence" of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic.[199]

....
In November 2014, Marine Le Pen confirmed that the party had received a €9 million loan from the First Czech Russian Bank (FCRB) in Moscow to the National Front.[200] Senior FN officials from the party's political bureau informed Mediapart that this was the first installment of a €40 million loan, although Marine Le Pen has disputed this. [192][200]
So, I guess the people on the right are happy to get behind Putin as their new leader, eh?

In 2005, Jean-Marie Le Pen wrote in the far-right weekly magazine Rivarol that the German occupation of France "was not particularly inhumane, even if there were a few blunders, inevitable in a country of [220,000 square miles]" and in 1987 referred to the Nazi gas chambers as "a point of detail of the history of the Second World War." He has repeated the latter claim several times.[206]
