(en) France, UCL - Federal tract, National Rally: The Truth Behind "De-demonization"! (ca, de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]

In the run-up to the 2022 presidential election, which is already moving towards a Macron VS Le Pen duel - "the plague against cholera" - the RN is already hoping to demonstrate the popularity of its ideas by making a good score in the departmental and regional elections in June. While the far right likes to muddy the waters, let us remember that their program serves the interests of the ruling classes to the detriment of the workers and the oppressed! ---- A racist party ---- Like its ancestor the FN, the RN continues to have to constantly manage what it calls the "slippages" of its executives, candidates and elected officials, but which is nothing more than a constant reminder of the institutionalized racism of this party. Recently, an RN candidate for departmental in Corrèze suggested on Twitter to "blow up" mosques. An RN municipal councilor in Pontet (Vaucluse) commented "I go for it and I crush all this shit" about a photo of Muslims practicing a prayer. A deputy mayor of Fréjus wrote: "New[government]advertisement for road safety, a mixed couple, a black and a white who make love, enough is enough ". This anthology could extend over entire pages and grow month after month.

A nationalist and security party
Among the flagship measures promised by the RN: close the borders, massively rearm the police and build prisons! The RN indeed promises the exit of the Schengen area and the additional opening of 40,000 places in jail (that is to say + 60%).

The RN also promises the automatic expulsion of any foreign person (even in a legal situation) having committed an offense.

A violent party led by neofascists
Behind a few media figures who try to police their image, the RN remains animated among others by former activists of neofascist groups such as Frédéric Chatillon, former president of the GUD (Union Defense Group) and who now ensures the communication of Marine Le Pen via the Riwal agency. Or Axel Loustau, another former GUD and treasurer of Jeanne, the micro-party of Marine Le Pen.

The RN also serves as an outlet for identity activists. Like Philippe Vardon, former head of the Bloc Identitaire and now an executive at the RN and regularly a candidate on municipal or regional lists. Or Damien Rieu, one of the founders of Génération Identitaire, today parliamentary assistant to an RN Euro-deputy.

More recently, Marine Le Pen went so far as to invite the former generals who called for a coup to join the National Rally. Demonstrating that military putschists and the electoral extreme right are only two facets of the same threat of a return to fascism.

A party right in the system
Contrary to the anti-system image they wish to convey, the Le Pen family is a family of millionaires living in a manor in the Hauts de Seine. Like many other politicians, Marine Le Pen has never worked outside of her political mandates. She is also one of the absenteeism champions in the European Parliament (where she is therefore paid by the taxpayer to do nothing).

The RN is also a completely institutionalized party which finances itself by embezzling public funds. Facts for which are prosecuted in particular... the former GUDars of Marine: Frédéric Chatillon and Axel Loustau! Not to mention the many fictitious job cases this party is embroiled in.

An anti-social party
In Mantes the city, the mayor RN increases by 7%, however, in three years, he has divided the grants to associations by two and reduced the number of municipal officials by nearly 20%, explaining that municipal finances are going wrong and you have to save money.

In 2016, the RN municipality of Hayange cut off gas and electricity to the Secours populaire association, even trying to expel the association from its premises before being dismissed by the courts.

In its presidential program, rather than fight against tax fraud (25 billion euros detected per year, total fraud estimated at 100 billion / year), the RN promises to tackle the widely fantasized social contribution fraud (800 million / year).

And no trace in their program of any increase in the minimum wage, RSA or family allowances except the implementation of a "birth policy reserved for French families".

The fight against RN must be a social struggle
Because the ideas of the RN are widely disseminated and taken up by a large part of the political groups, the media and directly by the State. This porosity of far-right ideas has been denounced by a large number of organizations of the social movement for years. The authoritarianism and repression that Macron put in place, in line with his predecessors, while presenting himself as the last bulwark when the RN came to power is a huge joke. To fight against the far right and its ideas, the response cannot come from the ballot box but from the social movement.

During the fight against the pension reform the RN was inaudible. When employees fight in their company and win rights, class solidarity advances, reactionary ideas regress. To counter the fascization of society in depth, it is in the social field that we can build a real response.

The RN is a danger! Let's fight the far right!
