‘French Trump’s’ Run for President Is Already a Total Shitshow

Sex scandals, copyright breaches and aggressive confrontations with members of the public have seen the presidential campaign of Eric Zemmour—a controversial far-right pundit in France—begin with a whimper, not a bang. In typically divisive fashion, the 63-year-old polemicist announced his long-expected candidature on Tuesday from a wooden desk with a...

Josephine Baker Becomes First Black Woman Inducted Into the French Panthéon

Eric Zemmour is my friend. I know he truly loves France

As someone who has known the French presidential candidate and longtime editorialist since 2009, allow me to attempt to explain who Eric Zemmour really is. Not long after arriving in France, over a dozen years ago, I was trying to get my bearings within the French media scene. After a stint co-hosting a nightly talk-show on Fox News at the network's New York headquarters, I crash landed onto nationwide French television - almost literally. The day after arriving in Paris for the very first time in my life, for what I thought would just be a three-week vacation between media contracts in the US, I found myself debating French and international politics with the country's top media figures on the morning political talk show of a public broadcaster. Before that, I knew about two people in France - one of whom introduced me to the program's host. And that's how things work in France. Paris, as they say, really is a village.

Meritocracy: the French between faith and disillusionment

The French have a special relationship with meritocracy. Are the reasons to be found in the history of France and the advent, at the end of the 19th century, of the compulsory, free and secular republican school?. Or in its preparatory classes and its grandes écoles that do not exist...

The Jewish Privilege Of Éric Zemmour: Why He Can Say What No Other Man In France Dares Say Above A Whisper

CFT – Christians For Truth Dec 1, 2021. The Jewish journalist, Éric Zemmour, has finally thrown his hat into the ring and announced his candidacy for the French presidency. A so-called “far” right wing journalist who has been convicted of “hate speech” for his unapologetic anti-Muslim sentiments, Zemmour has never spent a day in jail in a country where state-mandated political correctness has stifled any and all opposition to the bolshevization of France through draconian prosecutions of political dissidents.
