Presidential candidate Eric Zemmour responds in a press release published on his Twitter account to those who, presenting themselves as supporters, threatened the Head of State or Raquel Garrido and Alexis Corbière, elected officials of rebellious France. “Idiots who claim to take advantage of me and my candidacy to shoot with rifles on representations of my political opponents”, he writes.

In a video relayed yesterday, men members of the ultra-right simulated shots on rebels Raquel Garrido and Alexis Corbière. Eric Zemmour describes this show as “pitiful” and likens these people to hooligans in football stadiums, “they support me for the sole purpose of providing their destructive passion with new alibis”.

“You are neither one of my supporters, nor of my militants. I condemn in advance all that you will do in my name”, he continues in his press release.

In this same text, Eric Zemmour takes the opportunity to attack the antifas who “harass” according to him and who are “thousands, organized to break all over France”. At the same time, he asks Raquel Garrido and Alexis Corbière to “definitively denounce the antifas” and their spear “this challenge”. The LFI deputy for Seine-Saint-Denis responded, also on Twitter, qualifying as “pitiful pirouette” Eric Zemmour’s press release.

On Wednesday, it was the ecologist Sandrine Rousseau who lodged a complaint after the facade and the door of her home were degraded overnight by posters of Eric Zemmour.
