NEWS NEWS NEWS. CALL TO END THE FAR RIGHT THIS SUNDAY

Throughout this bizarre, shameful, almost sickening presidential campaign at times, without democratic debate worthy of the name, without discussion on the substance, on the essentials, on the future, except for the last few days, this in the midst of war, in the face of a threatening Russia, in a Europe, a land of freedom once again becoming a land of battle, we have heard so many media, social media influencers, intellectuals, politicians, so-called Republican candidates cozying up to the far right (whether radical or Rassemblement National), flattering it, smile at her, stage her, compromise with her ideas…

that’s to say…

… with its isolationist tendencies… its anti-parliamentary populism… its desire to weaken the rule of law (by supporting Voktor Orban)… its calls for plebiscitary referendums… its worrying climatoscepticism (let’s not forget that Marine Le Pen applauded the election of Trump and Bolsonaro)…his willingness to chip away at republican secularism…his aggressive identity nationalism…his calls for a disguised Frexit,…his irresponsible resolution to leave the command of NATO…his intention to impose the compulsory uniform, the rewriting of school books and the enforcement of the freedom to teach in school and college… his call to forcibly expose women wearing a hijab… his determination to want to give the police the right to shoot … his dangerous theses on the “decadence” of contemporary culture… his decision to put an end to “multiculturalism” by censoring associations… et cetera… et cetera… not to mention his profound incompetence and his will to e to govern by ideology, without an experienced team, a large strategic European country like France…

We have heard so much approximation, ranting, anti-democratic ideas, dangerous solutions, calls to divide the country and hateful denunciations of scapegoats that it is urgent to put a halt…

… To say collectively, massively, clearly, that we do not want, will never want, the vast majority of the French people, an extreme right regime.

That this is the decisive, historical issue, the major issue of this Sunday. It must be said a second time by voting, with as much force as in 2017 or in 2002 during the Jacques Chirac-Le Pen duel. Let this be said loud and clear. Let the democratic demonstration be made again. A real wake-up call. The objective goes well beyond a vote for or against Emmanuel Macron, it is a question of voting to remove the far right significantly, symbolically, with resolution – after, there will be the legislative elections to rebalance powers, to rebuild an ecological left and a republican right, to pluralize and verticalize democracy, then there will be social struggles, popular mobilizations, association fights, the parliamentary battle, trade union offensives… democratic life as of course…

The objective of this Sunday is that the extreme right is severely beaten. That she doesn’t recover. Let it be obvious: the French do not want it. Will never want it. It must be signified by the greatest possible difference.

Moreover. It is a question of showing with force that the French have had enough to see the soup served to the far right and its catchphrases, its lies, its hatreds cooked up by sycophantic journalists, destitute essayists, presenters in search of a sneering audience, social media influencers chasing the click, complacent right-wing figures who have abdicated their republicanism, all playing the “incorrect”, the “poorly thinking”, the daring, the disruptive, spending their time holding out the microphone, flattering, relativizing or making the ideas and boots of the Lepeniste but also radical and identity-based far right shine , endorsing his excesses, embellishing his hateful tirades, endorsing his conspiracy theories on the “great replacement” and “forced remigration” – theories which are, let us remember, charged with a criminal history…

And for good reason…

… They directly inspired Anders Behring Breivik, the author of the attacks in Oslo and Utoya in Norway on July 22, 2011 (77 dead, mostly Labor teenagers), signatory of a manifesto exalting white nationalism, calling by violent actions to stop “Eurabia” (Europe submerged by Arabs ). A text explicitly taken up by the white supremacist Brenton Tarrant, responsible for the terrorist attack on the mosques of Christchurch (New Zealand) in March 2019 (49 dead), himself a signatory of the manifesto ” The Great Replacement » – the great replacement where he justifies his criminal act with xenophobic remarks, calling for ethnic cleansing.

In France itself, the identity group Action of the operational forces (AFO), asserted on the home page of its website in the chosen name ” French War » : “The great replacement is real, visible everywhere in France and in Europe. Our nation will soon die out if we are not careful. Join the ranks of the Patriots. “. Thirteen of its members were arrested in June and July 2018 on suspicion of wanting to poison halal food in several supermarkets to kill French Muslims.

As for the OAS, theOrganization of Social Armies (inspired by the OAS of the Algerian war, I’Organization of the secret army to the 2000 assassinations) of which several members went to court in September 2021, they wanted to terrorize the French of Arab or African origin, Muslims, migrants, by attacking restaurants, mosques, grocery stores, street markets – but also to left-wing politicians deemed accomplices such as Christophe Castaner or Jean-Luc Mélenchon. Their stated goal, to push the “invaders to leave France on their own, to provoke a migration while terrorizing the progressive parties – in short, stopping the great replacement by terror: a kind of reverse jihad in line with the small group Identity Generation dissolved in March by the Ministry of the Interior. It is no coincidence that one of the members of this OAS was the administrator of the page Facebookadmirers of Anders Breivik”…

Let’s not forget the proliferation of violent actions by the far right, particularly in Lyon, like the attack on the libertarian bookseller of the Croix Rousse, The Black Featherand physical threats against activists of the LGBT movements… Neither Rémi Daillet, a figure in ultra-right conspiracy and anti-vax circles, indicted in Nancy in the case of the kidnapping of little Mia, by elsewhere heard by the DGSI in the context of the plans for an attack by the ultra-right small group Honor and Nation – he too is a follower and promoter of the theory of the “great replacement” and of violence against French Muslims and figures of the left… Nor the admirers of Eric Zemmour circulating a video where they shoot assault rifles at leftist and government figures…

All these hints of civil war, these criminal projects, these passages to the act by violent or factious groups worrying about a great people replacement“, reveal how extreme right-wing terrorism, as assured by German and French Intelligence, is becoming more and more threatening in France and in Europe – a dangerous counterpart to Islamist terrorism. Alas, since the horrible 20th century, the harmful influence of identity, chauvinistic, exclusionary and totalizing ideologies (the “totalitarian languages” as Claude Lefort and Jean-Pierre Faye call them), hate speech, war of religious and civil, and a call to get rid of an “enemy within the nation”, their driving role in partisan violence and democratic collapse are perfectly informed.

How can we not also see that they inspire today, beyond identity groups and far-right politicians, the populist dictators and autocrats in power in several countries – be it Vladimir Putin’s Russia bent on weakening Europe and destroying Ukraine through a bloody and criminal war to reinvigorate his “Great Russian” dream, the ultra-nationalist and radical Hindu Narenja Modi (former militant of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, an identity paramilitary group), which today orchestrates a veritable civil war against Indian Muslims (there are 150 million of them), or even Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, the strongman of Turkey, nationalist and radical Muslim, who muzzled the press, imprisoned his opponents, purged the judiciary, closed secular private schools – without forgetting Viktor Orban, in Europe, in a Hungary where all checks and balances and freedom of the press have been defeated, public broadcasting enslaved, justice brought to heel.

This historical knowledge questions the responsibility of those who popularize the themes and heralds of the radical far right in the French mediaspreading their fake news, exalting their high-sounding nationalist novel, supporting their conspiracy theories, spreading their insulting words, their sexist and racist remarks, their theories of civil war – but also challenges the commitment of a press boss like Vincent Bolloreyet Christian, who today offers sets, programs and chronicles to their flatterers, decided to create a far-right media pole confusing false news and opinion, hatred and freedom of expression, journalism and controversy, in line with chain FoxNews American, including a documentary in preparation, “Patriot Purge”, a tissue of alarmist untruths, resembles a call for civil war and “purge of Democrats in America…

Sunday let’s vote for civil peace and secularism, let’s vote to end the far right, let’s vote to stem this torrent of hatred, incompetence and lies…
