(en) France, Union Communiste Libertaire AL #301 - Right-extreme: The deadly tango of Macronie (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]
Fri, 24 Jan 2020 08:58:39 +0200
After his interview in Current Values, his racist measures against migrants , his attempt to rehabilitate Pétain, Macron continues his
flirting with the far right by appearing with Elie Hatem, a former member of Action Française and defender of the anti-Semite Charles
Maurras. Back on the waltz between LREM and the fachos... ---- The photos of the lawyer posing proudly with the Macron made the whole left
react. Even if the Action française (AF), once fond of Hatem's racist and conspiratorial speeches to the point of inviting him to numerous
conferences, has disowned its former leader, the fact remains that the presence of this notorious neofascist à l'Elysée shows how permeable
Macron is to far-right ideas and personalities.
And it is not the first time that the macronie gets hooked up with the fachos: we will remember the selfies (it is a hunk !) Of the former
Minister of the Interior Gérard Collomb with Jérémie Piano, member of Generation identity (GI), as well as its leniency towards GI at the
time of their operation " Defend Europe " in the Alps.
In Current Values (VA), Macron was able to give his racist discourse on the veil and immigration, which the magazine is making its big
splash on. What shocks beyond words is the validation by Macron of the conservative and openly racist line defended in VA. Especially since
this is the first time that a president has spoken, confirming the interest that the latter takes, if not in ideas, at least in the
electorate of the right and the far right. Besides, according to the monthly Yougov barometer, Macron gains 9 points with the extreme right
(15% of favorable opinions) and 16 points with the moderate right (50% of favorable opinions).
On November 8, Macron receives in the gold of the Élysée Palace and poses with Elie Hatem: former member of the Steering Committee of Action
Française and defender of the anti-Semite Charles Maurras.
An electoral romance ?
We can clearly see the calculation that Macron is trying to cross this red line. After the debacle of the Europeans against the RN and that
announced at the municipal elections in 2020, his speech is entitled. It is also out of opportunism and because they defend the same class
interests that the Liberals and the far right are passing the buck. If they manage to maintain themselves or come to power, it is only by
instrumentalizing hatred and fear, so hollow are their speeches and their laws never serving the untraceable " general interest " but only
that of minority of those who already have everything !
This strategy is never as blatant as when it applies to migrants or minorities. Attacks against Muslims, Jews, or considered as such, coming
from the far right are only possible by the trivialization of their ideas, the application of laws that validate their theories and by the
clientelism shown by many and many LREM elected officials to preserve their fragile little power.
The bourgeoisie, when it is afraid of losing its grip, takes refuge in the racist and xenophobic repertoire to divert the proletariat from
its emancipation. And when it defends immigration, it always does so in an economic logic of exploiting the misery of those who try to take
refuge in France, misery very often created by France by its neocolonial policy, in the service of interests of its multi-nationals.
Macron has never been the bulwark on the far right that he had claimed to be. Worse, he serves him the soup to keep his power and the far
right remains the favorite plan B of the bourgeoisie against social movements (the AF and the student cockade have been illustrated since
the beginning of December by violent attacks against student movements ). To fight it, let's fight his ideas wherever they are expressed !
