In Paris, Toulouse, Angers, this Saturday, and in Lyon, tomorrow, La France insoumise, the CGT, the Communist Party and “Dare feminism!” »Will demonstrate« against the ideas of the extreme right ». Jean-Luc Mélenchon hopes that this will help him to forget his calamitous prophecy announcing to us, for the end of the presidential campaign, “an extremely serious event which will make it possible to point the finger at Muslims”.
Two certainties in any case: the leader of LFI is ready to do anything to stop his impressive fall in public opinion (according to Ifop, 70% of French people reject him, or 10% more than Marine Le Pen). Mélenchon will therefore re-mobilize his troops against a new right-wing adversary judged, for his culture and his success on CNews (where he is followed every evening by a million viewers), “more dangerous than Le Pen”. This is Éric Zemmour.
“The socialist left but also the right are right to be worried: this new candidate, necessarily qualified as” populist “, could finish reducing them to a derisory figure during the presidential election”.
With the support of ex-FN but also ex-supporters of François Fillon, the journalist, long marginalized in Figaro before becoming a star columnist, is getting ready, proclaiming himself Gaullist and Bonapartist and hammering “Stop to immigration ”, to embark on the race for the Élysée. The socialist left, which has lost its popular electorate, but also the right, formerly Gaullist, are right to be worried: this new candidate, necessarily qualified as “populist”, could finish reducing them to a derisory figure during the presidential election. .
But the most threatened is Marine Le Pen. It is with her, considered too “soft” by her niece Marion and by the old friends of her own father, that the star of CNews will take especially voices. By weakening the most formidable adversary of the outgoing president, Zemmour is therefore playing Emmanuel Macron’s game.
