He attacks a wide range of the political spectrum. Eric Zemmour, who won 7.07% of the presidential vote, believes that the President of the Republic, Emmanuel Macron, is “preparing France” for the rebellious Jean-Luc Mélenchon and once again criticizes his rival Marine Le Pen who in his eyes embodies “socialism”.

“Emmanuel Macron is preparing the France of Jean-Luc Mélenchon. They are both for the advent of this new creolized people, ”says in an interview with Le Figaro the former far-right contender for the Elysée, who was an editorial writer in this newspaper. “Only, Jean-Luc Mélenchon wants to give birth to it through revolution. When Emmanuel Macron wants to generate it by waiting and demographic fatalism. There is a difference in chronology, but not in ideology,” he said.

For him, the other far-right candidate, Marine Le Pen, who in the second round of the presidential election gathered 41.45% of the votes behind Emmanuel Macron (58.55%), “failed to make the alliance of the patriotic right and the patriotic left. Otherwise she would have won. The MP for Pas-de-Calais “is blinded by thinking that she will be able to snatch voters from her. Unless she herself renounces defending the identity of France “because” by prioritizing the social, she is part of a political philosophy which is called socialism”, according to Eric Zemmour.

Marine le Pen has “the same speech as that of Jean-Luc Mélenchon”

“What holds the top of the hierarchy? For me, it is France, its survival and its identity. For Marine Le Pen, it’s socialism”, and her speech is “the same as that of Jean-Luc Mélenchon” on retirement at 60 or the return of wealth tax, he explains.

Convinced that “the right-left cleavage still exists”, he pleads for “a gathering of all the rights” against the new union of the left (Nupes) of Jean-Luc Mélenchon, through “an alliance with a party of the bourgeoisie”.

He admits that the “battle will be difficult” in the legislative elections but that his Reconquest! party, which he says has 125,000 members, is entering the “establishment” phase. He says he suffered in the presidential election from the war in Ukraine, which favored a “legitimist vote” in favor of Emmanuel Macron, and a “useful vote” in favor of Marine Le Pen.
