Since the revelations of violence by the rebellious Adrien Quatennens, La France insoumise has been torn apart. In the media, the spokespersons of the party get bogged down, between condemnations and defense of the rebellious policy. The media treatment of the affair, in particular by the leader Mélenchon, raises more and more questions.

It’s a case that never ends: that of Adrien Quatennens, the rebellious deputy who admitted to having slapped his wife. But since then, it is the treatment of the case by rebellious France that raises questions. After Jean-Luc Mélenchon supported his foal, several rebels remained very ambiguous on the issue. Between the silence out of solidarity or the general malaise when it is necessary to condemn the words of their leader, since the beginning of the week, the rebellious accumulate blunders.

“You will regret your question”

To the point of pushing Jean-Luc Mélenchon to the limit. Last Thursday, exasperated by yet another question from a journalist, the rebellious leader patted his cheek before proclaiming “you will regret your question”. But the latest controversy comes from Manuel Bompard. On CNews, the MP for Marseille wanted relativize the seriousness of a slap. “I try to put things in perspective, a slap is never acceptable, but is not comparable to a man who beats his wife every day. A slap does not equal a person who is accused of rape after drugging the people who accuse him,” he said on the television channel.

Words immediately condemned by the opposition. Isabelle Rome, the Minister Delegate for Equality between Women and Men, affirms that these remarks “damage the fight against violence against women”. Before Marlène Schiappa’s outbidding “Shut up now! That’s enough,” said the Secretary of State for the Social and Solidarity Economy.

Finally, Manuel Bompard backtracked on Twitter “a slap is a serious and unacceptable fact” he specified.
