When Éric Zemmour's supporters are questioned at a public meeting, they unanimously say that he is the only one telling the truth: that a "great replacement" is clearly taking place and could cause France as they know it -- proud of its secularism, Judeo-Christian values and individual liberty -- to "die".
Zemmour tells Marine Le Pen
that she cannot win and she knows it, and Macron that "opening up to
diversity" leads to the dissolution of France. He
notes that he does not want to shrink the country, but to save it from
destruction and that he will not refuse to see what Islam is or can do. He
frequently quotes the Algerian
author Boualem Sansal, who writes that Islamic neighborhoods in France are
"budding Islamic republics".
