[Video] Chirac, it was not just the funny idiot king who came down from the crates of Corona and banged on the ass of the cows at the Salon de l'agriculture ... ---- It was also a career built on betrayals, nationalist postures, an anti-social policy, nauseating thoughts, Françafrique money, financial pans to no end ... ---- It was also the transition between Gaullism and Sarkozyism. ---- Below, a retrospective in 17 videos. ---- It is well known, but we can not resist. At the time, Chirac was a young wolf of the Gaullist party, the UDR, and a protégé of President Pompidou, who made him appointed Minister Delegate. Georges Marchais, general secretary of the PCF, sends him bouler live, during a TV show. We were far from the style of Pierre Laurent and Fabien Roussel ...

Treacherous attention: in 1974, in the middle of the presidential campaign, Chirac decides to assassinate the official Gaullist candidate. Training with him a part of the Gaullist deputies (it is "the Call of the 43"), he supports the candidacy of the liberal Valéry Giscard d'Estaing. Winning bet: Giscard is elected, Chirac becomes Prime Minister. Chaban is on the ground, Chirac takes the opportunity to seize the leadership of the party. This is the farewell to the old Gaullist Guard from the Resistance, and the transition to a young generation formed at the ENA.

Well, between Giscard and his Prime Minister, it is not the great love ... Chirac resigns the Prime Minister in 1976, and then leads a permanent war against the Elysee. The RPR will go so far as to recommend to its militants to vote Mitterrand, in 1981, to chase Giscard ...

Chirac renamed the Gaullist party. At the rally meeting of the Rassemblement pour la république (RPR), on December 5, 1976, he delivered a nationalist speech that borrowed from the Barresian and Maurrassian rhetoric of yesteryear. He soon forged an image of figurehead of the reaction, overflowing Giscard on his right.

As European elections approach, the RPR is developing a fiercely sovereignist line. Wasted the party cash a bad score, ranking 4 th position behind the UDF, the PS and the PCF. After that, Chirac will opportunely adopt a pro-European Community line.

The Gabonese dictator Omar Bongo sent suitcases of notes to all the French politicians, PS like RPR, of which he wanted to make the complicity. At his death, in 2009, we talk again about the sound and stumbling support he brought to the Chirac candidacy in 1981. In 2002, François-Xavier Verschave, of the Survie association, devoted a book to decrypt his French-speaking networks: " Black Chirac ".

Good, heritage sequence, only for the purpose of edifying younger generations who have not experienced the "Show Babe". Chirac is called Blackjack. It's a big deal, but this daily satirical show was a must-see TV show at the time of the "first cohabitation" when a PS president, Mitterrand, was forced to govern with Prime Minister RPR Chirac.

During the televised debate of 28 April 1988 for the 2 th round of presidential elections, Chirac and Mitterrand denied responsibility for the rise of anti-colonial movement in Kanaky. Seven days later, the French army storms the Ouvéa cave and kills 19 separatists.

It's hard to ignore this piece of Parabellum: "The morning morning I'm awake / In the world of free enterprise ..." Well, that could have been called "Anarchy" in Mitterrandie "...
At a RPR banquet in Orleans, Chirac spoils his vision of immigrants in France. Jean-Marie Le Pen drinks whey ! And Zebda will shoot a famous song.

In the presidential election of May 1995, there are two Gaullist candidates in competition: Balladur (then at the top in the polls) and Chirac (given loser). Opportunistic as always, Chirac doubles his competitor on the left, campaigning against the "social divide", and in favor of "France for all". Hence this sketch of the "Guignols of the info", to the best of their form.

Barely elected president, Chirac announces the resumption of nuclear tests in French Polynesia, on the atolls of Mururoa and Fantgataufa. This provokes demonstrations in France and riots in Polynesia. "It's over, the time of the colonies" ! title then Alternative libertarian. The tests will end at the beginning of 1996.

Chirac shouting at the Israeli police who prevent him from approaching the Palestinian population in Jerusalem: this cult scene almost made him look like a propalestinian (which he was not ...). Seven years later, the refusal to follow the United States in the war against Iraq was to devote its popularity to the Middle East.

On September 21, 2000, Le Monde published the revelations recorded shortly before his death on a VHS by Jean-Claude Méry, a secret financier of the RPR in the years 1980-1990. The bomb is such that Chirac reacts the same day on TV, in a sequence of anthology. He will be covered by justice, Judge Halphen removed from the file, and the file properly buried.

Ah la la, still a dark case: more than 300,000 euros of air tickets to the eye, for pleasure trips ... We have forgotten the details of the case, but it will remain a famous onomatopoeia.

Legend has it that the "Guignols de l'info" were somewhat guilty of giving Chirac a sympathetic image during the 1995 presidential campaign, helping to get him elected. Suddenly, for that of 2002, they redeem themselves a conduct with the character of Supermenteur, who always manages to thwart the investigations of the justice on his malpractices. Chirac gathers 19% of the votes in the first round and, to everyone's surprise, finds himself facing Jean-Marie Le Pen. We know the rest: the 2 e turn the indignant country imposes a score of only 18% in the NF ... but 82% to Supermenteur.

The two quinquennies of Jacques Chirac sounded the sound of multiple financial pans. His presidential immunity will always allow him to escape, with the tacit approval of the PS (should not belittle the image of France !). After leaving the Elysee in 2007, and therefore the end of immunity, justice will take a long time to succeed in cornering the tail of the fox. In December 2011, at nearly 80 years old, he will finally be sentenced to two years in prison, suspended for an old case of embezzlement of public funds. In the meantime, the Guignols (still them) had given themselves to their heart's content.
