Is Frexit Getting to Be a Popular Idea?

ER Editor: Francois Asselineau (pictured far below), leader of the UPR party in France and a failed presidential candidate, is probably right about the growing importance of Frexit in the minds of many French. Leader of The Patriots party, Florian Philippot (pictured), is usefully pushing himself forward, not only by having spent a full year of Saturdays out on the frontlines, organizing and marching against the plandemic measures himself, but also on the Frexit idea. Philippot used to be Marine Le Pen‘s deputy, and she had abandoned the idea, which was probably an unwise move in retrospect.

There is also a party (Solidarité et progrès) and affiliated groups on the Left, led by Jacques Cheminade, Larouche’s representative in France, who are seeking to run a candidate in the 2022 presidentials on a Frexit platform. They are positioning themselves against the ‘financial oligarchy’:

What they have in common is the vision of a France independent of the “financial oligarchy”: they criticize, among other things, the European Union’s stranglehold on France. On the spot, the speakers do not criticize a European company but protest more against the domination of the bank over the public authorities.

While Frexit hasn’t always been a popular idea, and certainly not just because Britons voted to leave the EU in 2016, more and more French have seen the positively tyrannical nature of their government and institutions like the EU throughout the plandemic.

Who hasn’t, in fact? 


Presidential 2022: Frexit “is now in all minds”, according to François Asselineau


The president of the UPR presented his candidate program for the next presidential election, whose flagship measure is the exit of France from the European Union. A measure that, according to him, no longer seems “beside the point [as] in 2017”.

François Asselineau, candidate for the second time in the presidential election, presented this October 19 his proposals to get out of the euro, NATO and the European Union (Frexit), believing that this last idea was now “in all minds” since the Brexit. “The idea of leaving the European Union, which seemed far-fetched in 2007 or even beside the point in 2017, is now in all minds,” argued the president of the Republican People’s Union (UPR), which had gathered 0.92% of the vote in the 2017 presidential election.

François Asselineau taunts “the unfinished thoughts” of his opponents

“[Brexit] took place and it is finally going very well notwithstanding [labor shortages], as if there were no shortages in France and in the world,” pleaded François Asselineau, welcoming in passing the decision of the Polish Constitutional Court challenging the primacy of European law.

He said in this regard he is “surprised that people find it more reasonable to say that they will stay in the club by no longer applying the rules,” referring to several candidates for the Elysée who challenge the primacy of European law without wishing to leave the European Union. “Why don’t they want Frexit?”, questioned the boss of the UPR.

Similarly, candidates want to leave the integrated command of NATO without leaving NATO.

“These are in fact unfinished thoughts,” criticized François Asselineau.

The 64-year-old civil servant also said he did not think that his indictment for moral harassment and sexual assault would pose a problem during his campaign and “refuted” these accusations, which had led to several departures from the UPR.

He said he was counting on three million euros in donations for the presidential and legislative elections, and assured that with him “the French are not dealing with a charlatan.

Challenged this time by another supporter of Frexit, Florian Philippot – who will launch his presidential campaign on October 24 and demonstrated like him against the health pass (ER: but much more vigorously by being out and about every weekend) – François Asselineau considered that he did not have “the same references, the same audiences” as the former right-hand man of Marine Le Pen but did not exclude “convergences” around a single candidate before the election.
