Eric Zemmour in pre-campaign for the 2022 presidential election

“You are a candidate for the Presidency of the Republic”, concludes Laurent Ruquier, Saturday September 11, on France 2, where Eric Zemmour was the guest. The latter smiles, says nothing. The game of ambiguity will continue “Until he pronounces the sentence himself”, are we having fun in our entourage. Waiting for, “Everything falls into place”. Thierry Deransart, friend of Zemmour since 1995 and in charge of the press, describes the singularity of the operation: “It’s a blob, an organic thing that spreads by capillarity [en référence à cet organisme ni animal ni végétal]. There is no precedent, we are on a crest path. ”

This funny pre-campaign does not fit into the boxes. Can we, in the name of the originality of a political approach, play with democratic rules? The Superior Audiovisual Council (CSA) has just recalled the “Rules of pluralism” by asking the audiovisual media to count, since Thursday, September 9, the interventions of the polemicist “Relating to the national public debate”. The interested party did not expect this until, at least, the end of September and hoped to benefit from the exposure offered by CNews. Monday morning, the channel announced that it would not continue its program while regretting the decision of the CSA. In Fréjus (Var), Marine Le Pen had criticized the inequality of treatment, calling for the rules to be applied to ” everybody “ in the name of the “Loyalty of the electoral fight”. “I too would like to have an hour a day to express my ideas and, incidentally, to speak ill of the neighbor”, she squeaked, postulating that the essayist is “A priori candidate”.

Everything is orchestrated

The clues are piling up. If there is no official organization chart, the Les Amis d’Eric Zemmour association acts in conjunction with Sarah Knafo, an intimate of the polemicist and young auditor at the Court of Auditors, who coordinates actions in the field and filters the rallies. . The association was constituted as a political party and has benefited, since 1er July, with an approval from the National Campaign Accounts Commission. Its members are looking for the sponsorship of elected officials and the media plan is “Closed for two months” : after Le Figaro Magazine, Eric Zemmour is interviewed every day before the publication on Thursday of his book France has not said its last word and the start of his tour, in Toulon and Nice, on Friday. Everything is orchestrated.
