The Clock is Ticking for Éric Zemmour

Éric Zemmour is by far the most immigration-critical and “Islamophobic” of the current crop of French presidential candidates. Although he is very popular, especially among young people, Mr. Zemmour has yet to meet the requirement for 500 parrainages, or endorsements, by French mayors. The deadline is five days from now, so time is running out.

In the following video, Éric Zemmour makes an appeal to the mayors of France to endorse his candidacy. Many thanks to Oz-Rita for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling.

The translator sends this précis of the political context for the video:

This is one of the many tools that the Dark Forces behind Macron utilise to keep Zemmour out of the game.

A law that has existed in France since the mid-1960s (so it is not new) is that any candidate for the French presidency must have 500 endorsements by French mayors from different departments. If he cannot obtain them, he is not allowed to stand. The deadline for this is March 5.

There is a huge number of likely voters in this election. Marine Le Pen and Éric Zemmour are nearly equal (although Zemmour is progressing faster). Zemmour is also the most dangerous competitor to Macron.

Macron has, of course, more than enough signatures (over 2,000 I think), as has the (fake) conservative candidate, an Islamophile and graduate of Klaus Schwab’s school, Valérie Pécresse, whom I suspect has the backing of the World Economic Forum, which, with Macron and Pécresse, has two horses in the race. So for the globalists it’s a win/win situation.

Jean-Luc Mélenchon, one of the three who did not have enough signatures until yesterday, now has them. He is the leader of the Communist Party and actively works for a “creole France” (as he calls it… he is totally and actively pro-Arab/Muslim).

So that leaves Marine Le Pen and Zemmour, each of whom has only about 350 signatures.

I don’t care about Marine Le Pen (she sold out long ago), but I think ZEMMOUR can make it — and his election is of global importance.

As I mentioned above: the (stupid) law has existed for nearly sixty years, but what has been changed — by the second-worst President ever, François Hollande (very Left) — is that while it used to be anonymous whom the mayors sponsored, Hollande mandated that it be made public which candidates received their endorsements.

This is the difficulty for Le Pen and Zemmour, because no official wants to be seen to support Zemmour. Some of them actually told Zemmour that they love his plans, but they will be punished (no money for the swimming pool or school hall or no promotion to Paris) if they sponsor him.

Video transcript:

00:00   Dear Mayors, dear departmental and regional councillors;
00:05   dear French and European MPs. We have
00:09   five days left, FIVE days to obtain
00:13   the 50 signatures I still need. Five days
00:17   to allow the millions of French people who placed their hopes in my candidacy
00:21   to be able to vote for their ideas.
00:25   Five days is short, time is running out. Imagine for one second
00:29   that Marine Le Pen, Jean-Luc Mélenchon [Islamophile communist] and I were prevented
00:33   from presenting ourselves. Imagine the state of our democracy
00:37   and our country. I do not want to imagine
00:41   the democratic earthquake that it would cause.
00:45   Ladies and gentlemen, elected representatives: The endorsement is not
00:49   a support. Endorsing me does not mean supporting me.
00:53   Do not be afraid. Do not be afraid of pressure.
00:57   They cannot do anything against you. I sincerely thank the President
01:01   of the Association of the Mayors of France, who showed yesterday how much of a democratic duty
01:05   the endorsement is, to allow the French people
01:09   a debate. Do not let this system deprive us
01:13   of our election. Let’s not accept this barrage, designed to prevent
01:17   candidacies from outside the major parties who have shared their power
01:21   for thirty years to do the same thing. I invite
01:25   all mayors to do the same. I invite you to endorse me
01:29   for this presidential election. The survival of our democracy depends on it.
01:33   Whether you agree with my findings or not, it is the French people
01:37   who must decide. Let’s save our democracy.
01:41   Endorse me! Vive our democracy!
01:45   Vive la République, and above all: Vive la France!

  1. 1. I have never mentioned what great editing Baron Bodissey does with translations (at least mine) English not being my first language, it’s more often than not quite a “clean-up”. Thanks Baron.

    2. A little correction to my comments above: Calling Jean-Luc Mélenchon was a short-cut to what I see him as. Although he was closely associated and very much promoted by the French Communist Party for most of his political life, the movement he founded is called “La France Insoumise” (Rebellious France) and wants to be seen as “eco-socialist-anti-racist-pro-migration etc.”

    3. Will Eric Zemmour be allowed to get onto the ballot ? At the time of writing we don’t know if he has the 500 required signatures, they are published on Thursdays and Tuesdays (French Timezone). The final deadline is Friday, March 4th. This date is also the deadline for candidates to have formally declared that they will run, something that Macron has not yet done (probably so that his presidential allowances still pay for his campaign.).

    4. I am nervous, it is getting nasty. Eric Zemmour’s posters are starting to be defaced with “Dirty Jew”, mayors who give him their signature are being doxxed, and the (unconfirmed) rumour is that Macron might “postpone” the election.

  2. France has put themselves into this Islamic pickle with the importing a large Islamic voting block that is willing to riot if they do not get their way. The local mayors are not willing to protect the local non-Moslem population ,Sharia law as law of the land is going to progress to French law in less then a decade if this election goes for the pro-Islamic side.
