The far-right star identifies himself as an “Amazigh Jew” and has an anti-Semitic thesis. Polls give it 17%, one point more than Marine Le Pen. The role of TVs that gives them space
On the eve of the 2014 World Cup semi-final between Germany and BrazilEric Zemmour predicted a clear defeat for the Germans, now tainted with the blood of Arabs and Africans, and no longer “blond dolichocephalics”: a term taken from racist publications in the early twentieth century.
2022 presidential run
It is expected that Zemmour will announce within ten days his candidacy for the presidency of the French Republic. We vote in the spring of 2022. But the character seems to have emerged from the 1920s. Jean-Marie Le Pen, founder of the dynasty that reconstructed the European far right, is usually said to be Vichy’s son, Petain, of collaborating France. But it is not a generous definition. Orphaned by his father, he drowned in a mine with his fishing boatAt the age of sixteen, Jean-Marie decided to fight the Nazis and introduced himself to a legendary figure in the resistance, Colonel Valin – his real name is Henri de la Vissiere – to whom he said: “Boy, go back to your mother.” Le Pen is certainly a reactionary, but his right, if any, is the right of French Algeria and the Organization of American States, organizing the secret army that de Gaulle considered a traitor (Jean-Marie had fought in Indochina and Algeria).
2022 presidential run
Eric Zemmour comes from an Algerian Jewish family. He identifies himself as an “Amazigh Jew”. Yet he is accused of anti-Semitic races. On the surface, a mystery of history and politics. A leader beloved by young people – “Génération Z” whose activists call themselves – who reopens secular wounds: he doubts Dreyfus’ innocence, cites Moras and Paris, evokes the motives of Parvian France between the two wars, and praises Petain who “has sacrificed foreign Jews to save the Jews of France”; It is also a mistake. One wonders how a Jew could criticize the choice of Chirac, the first head of state to acknowledge France’s responsibility in the arrest of Jews at the Winter Velodrome. However, Zemmour did: it was for him that Chirac was mistaken when he asked for forgiveness for the tragedy of Ville de Heve, whose chief official, police chief René Bousquet, an anti-Semitic fanatic, implicated to death (he was killed in 1993). With five shots from my insane executioner) of a fraternal friendship with François Mitterrand, he never gave up on it even after his election to the Elysee. As for the De Gaulle, for him, was a Vichy “nul et non avenu”: as if it had never existed before. But for Zemmour, cooperating officials “are not guilty, for it is their duty to obey the state.”
murdered jewish children
“Jews have everything as persons, nothing as a nation”: the motto of the 1789 revolutionaries that Zemmour recovers, as if to say that there are only individuals and not “political bodies”, and no other identities compatible with French identity. To translate this principle into the present day, Zemmour went so far as to say that Gabriel, Aryeh and Miriam, the three Jewish children who were killed by the Islamist terrorist Mohamed Merah in Toulouse, They weren’t real French, but “foreigners when they were alive who wanted to remain aliens when they died”He was also buried in Israel. Moreover, Zemmour has a real phobia of “non-French” names: after Rachida Dati, Sarkozy’s former minister, blamed her for calling her daughter Zahra, Sarkozy criticized himself for giving his daughter Carla Bruni an Italian name: Giulia.
Community leaders hate him. Francis Califat, president of the Council of Jewish Institutions in France, said: the scientist: “Not a single Jewish vote should go to the potential candidate Zemmour.” However, the same newspaper interviewed Jews who, although they preferred to remain anonymous, expressed sympathy for the “potential candidate”: the problem, as they say, is not historical memory. Today’s problem is Islamic immigration “ethnic replacement”., whose symbol Zemmour points to at the Halles metro station, where on Saturday afternoon the children of immigrants from the suburb descend into the belly of Paris.
Right wing heir
Of course, Zemmour wouldn’t campaign in the 1920s. He would present himself as the heir to the right wing of Gaullistism, the “popular right and the Bonapartist, which brings together the popular classes and the national bourgeoisie.” Program: immigration block, end of ius soli and family reunification “national preference” for home and work. More ambiguous formulas that many French like “Napoleon is our father, the king of the sun, our grandmother, Joan of Arc, our great-grandmother”.
In the polls, Zemmour has 17%, one point ahead of Marine Le Pen. This does not displease Jean-Marie, who met Eric in January 2020 with the daughter of Ribbentrop, the foreign minister of Nazi Germany. In fact, no one believed that Zemmour could become president. It seems unlikely that he will make it to the polls. His candidacy was not even said to hold up to the vote: Zemmour succeeded him with two convictions for inciting racial and religious hatred, as well as disturbing complaints of sexual assaults. But it represents the novelty of this election campaign. And he’s taken seriously by the most aggressive French businessman: Vincent Polloret.
his tv, CNews, gave him plenty of space as a columnist: with the daily Zemmour streak he moved from 0.5 to 5% of his share. Now Bolloré has bought the Lagardère newspaper group, and above all manager fired Paris MatchGuilty of putting on the front page a picture of a sea effusion between Zemmour and his “very close advisor.” (So in the title) Younger than 35. It would be interesting to see the position of the right-wing French newspaper, Le FigaroZemmour worked as a political editor for thirteen years, then worked extensively for a newspaper magazine. But in 2017 Le Figaro Macron’s support. The president still has a good chance of being reelected; But it risks controlling a square of rubble and without a majority in parliament.
(And anyway, in the World Cup, a dramatic unsuccessful Germany defeated Brazil 7-1 at home.)
