Talker: Mélenchon, idiot trap!

Discover the summary of our June issue


Mélenchon, idiot trap! The rhyme is not rich but it is sufficient to describe the very regrettable mélenchonisation of the spirits which, says Elisabeth Lévy to us, does not stop at the borders of Nupes. The appointment of Pap Ndiaye to Education is the unfortunate demonstration of this. By a political sleight of hand, the Leader Maximo succeeded in transforming an electoral defeat into a political and media victory. For Céline Pina, the left used to unite around its most moderate component. With the Nupes, the most extreme current is at work. LFI’s allies will manage to save a few seats, but will pay a heavy price ideologically. This analysis is confirmed by political scientist Stéphane Rozès. If the leader of the Insoumis is excessive, does he deserve the label of “extreme left”? Response from the specialist in extremism, Christophe Bourseiller: Mélenchon does not advocate revolution or the seizure of power by violence; the posture of this authoritarian conductor of a heterogeneous movement is that of a populist. What is undeniable, analyzes Ali Tahir, is that Jean-Luc Mélenchon has been able to capture a Muslim identity vote which he is accelerating the structuring. This alliance between the Marxist left and Islam is not new: going back to the Baku Congress of 1920, Jean-Loup Bonnamy shows us that the Bolsheviks had already understood what they had in common with Muslims anti-Western. Reactions to the Nupes from leftist men are varied. For Jérôme Leroy, this common front represents a compromise that is in the DNA of the left. But the former socialist elephant, Julien Dray, interviewed by Elisabeth Lévy, does not forgive his camp for having abandoned school, secularism and the Republic to throw themselves into the arms of Jean-Luc Mélenchon. He denounces the Islamo-leftism of LFI which inscribes communitarianism in our political system. Mélenchon paragon of benevolence? Marsault gives us his diagnosis on the empathy of the tribune in the voice of Stentor.

In her editorial, Elisabeth Lévy returns to the Damien Abad affair. For the vigilantes ready to denounce any form of patriarchal violence, accusation is worth condemning. Robespierre could not have done better. In the marvelous world they are preparing for us, it will suffice, to get rid of a political competitor, to simmer him a #metoo. Confiding in our editorial director, writer and academic Jean-Michel Delacomptée denounces the fight of neo-feminists against men in general and the father figure in particular. A world devoid of any form of paternal authority would be doomed to perpetual war of everyone against everyone.

What are the consequences of the gradual replacement of the inhabitants of a rural town or a quiet district of the capital by immigrants refusing our laws and customs? Yannis Ezziadi conducted an investigation in the small town of Nangis, in Seine-et-Marne. Thanks to the development of social housing, a change in the population has taken place: veiled women and men in djellaba are now legion, while the tranquility and hospitality that the inhabitants have long known, whatever their origins, have simply disappeared. Such a sad experience is told by Raphaëlle Philli, forced to leave her Parisian neighborhood by the dirt, the ugliness and the activity of the dealers. It’s not just our cities and suburbs that are under threat right now. In his new book, which has just been published in English, my compatriot, the British essayist Douglas Murray, analyzes the cultural offensive led against the West. More thirsty for revenge than justice, racialist ideologues are ready to do anything to destroy our identity. Our civilizational and national values ​​are under attack from all sides: according to the philosopher Olivier Rey, the European hyperliberal model defended by Emmanuel Macron, which promotes hyperindividualism in a world without borders, contributes to further fracturing French society as we struggle to form a national community.

On the war side, the great reporter, Régis Le Sommier, confides in Alexis Brunet. In the book he just published, The truth on the ground (Books), the story of the many conflicts he covered reveals the changes in a profession dominated today by emotion, caricature and a lack of analysis. Also discover the interviews with Caroline Parmentier, the former press secretary of Marine Le Pen, today RN candidate in Nord-Pas-de-Calais (interviewed by Martin Pimentel), and with Franck Layré-Cassou who defends the colors of Reconquest! in the 14e district in Paris (and who confides in Cyril Bennasar).

On the cultural side, Jonathan Siksou salutes the work of the Safeguard of French Art which has been fighting for a century to protect our religious heritage. By defending the place of spirituality in our landscape, it also promotes the presence of beauty. Julien San Frax welcomes the DVD release of films by Andrei Zviaguintsev, a director, now in exile, who denounces the collapse of his country, Russia. Sophie Bachat welcomes the publication of a biography in French of Brian Jones, one of the founders of the Rolling Stones, who died in 1969, and Pierre Lamalattie an exhibition at the Musée d’Orsay dedicated to the brilliant architect, Antoni Gaudí, designer of the Sagrada Família, Barcelona cathedral still under construction. Among the centenarians celebrated this year, that of Antoine Blondin (1922-1991) does not have the luster it deserves. Nevertheless, for Jérôme Leroy, its historical publisher, La Table ronde, saves the honor with two reissues, including one ofA monkey in winter. It’s the season of memories. Yannis Ezziadi enthusiastically read those, posthumous, of the actress, Suzy Delair. Patrick Mandon recommends those, “anthumes” (as Alphonse Allais would say), of the director and film critic, Philippe d’Hugues. Finally, Jean Chauvet welcomes the arrival of summer by being enthusiastic about the release on the big screen of “Let’s sing in the rain”.

Provided that we don’t all end up, in France, once again, by singing, with our feet in the… mire.
