The philosopher Michel Onfray and the far-right polemicist Eric Zemmour, who is considering embarking on the 2022 presidential campaign, will hold a big evening of joint debate on October 4 at 8 p.m. at the Palais des Congrès in Paris, a learned The world.
“This two-and-a-half-hour meeting-conference will deal with the debates that go through the presidential election : security, immigration … “, confides a relative of the two men, and will be held in a room that can accommodate 4,000 people, the public hoped for for this paid evening. The Grand Rex, a time approached, finally declined.
Until now, the founder of the former popular University of Caen and the polemicist had only met on the set of the Cnews channel. Coming from the left, the philosopher, who explained in 2015 that he was “ not Charlie “, openly claims “Populist”.
In 2020, this specialist in Nietzsche and Schopehauer, who has just published at the Presses de la Cité Autodafés: the art of destroying books, launched an openly political magazine and paid site: “Popular Front”, a mook and a TV hostile to the “Official media”. Their contributors run from a “yellow vest” to the far-right mayor of Béziers, Robert Ménard, through the sovereignist Philippe de Villiers or a former spokesperson for rebellious France, but also the professor of medicine Didier Raoult, who wrote an article there on “The Deep State”. MM. Raoult and Onfray were also to hold a big meeting in October 2020, at the Dôme, in Marseille, a meeting which had been canceled because of the second wave of Covid.
