How Marine Le Pen reviewed his position on this issue

Is one of Marine Le Pen’s flagship systems still there? The veil is now a “complex problem” explained by the president of RN. The proposal has evolved over the last ten years into far-right parties.

The central theme of Marine Le Pen’s party. Prohibiting (or at least limiting) the wearing of the burqa in French society is a clearly stated purpose and has been for many years. But within a week of the presidential election, the candidate changed his position at a national rally. After maintaining a very clear ban on the burqa in public spaces, he now sees it as a “Complex problem” Which requires gradual action and showing oneself less firm than a few weeks ago. This is actually the latest speech combination of the far-right candidate, in a decade in which he has already changed his mind on this issue several times.

Between the two rounds: “a complex problem”

What is presented as a good pedagogy is that the candidate must explain during the April 16, Saint-Remy-sur-Avar (Eure-et-Loir) campaign that the screen was a “Complex problem”, And that he was not “disobedient” about framing his port. Earlier in the day, during a visit to Pertuis (Vouclus), the RN candidate encountered a woman wearing a scarf and explained to her that her veil “Signs of being a grandmother” And that was for him “A modern veil and a modern dress”.

For Louis Elliott, RN mayor of Perpignan, this is not a change from Marine Le Pen. “I think we explain better.”He speculated, however, that France had invited him from Inter this Monday, noting that the ban would be imposed in some way. “Progressive”. Continuation of text interpretation: “There will be an active policy (…) that will begin by banning it from public services and which, in turn, will limit its visibility on the street.”

Jordan Bardella, president of the RN, a guest of Europe 1 on Sunday, presented global sanctions as part of it. “Term Goals”. He made an unusual distinction between the two “Screen for French women from immigration in the 60’s and 70’s” And “The veil has now become an instrument of pressure on Islamic fundamentalists”. A distinction was also made this Sunday on BFM TV by candidate spokesman Sebastian Chenu, who took care to specify it. “The target is Islamists”But no “A 70-year-old grandmother who has been wearing her little veil for years.” Marine met Le Pen.

Before the first round: “An Islamic uniform”

A few days ago, the message and tone were very different. France Inter, April 12, Marine Le Pen made this assurance “The burqa is an Islamic uniform and not a Muslim uniform” And she considers him “Uniform of an ideology and not of a religion”. He compared it to a much lower tweezers than his spokesman on Monday, with the potential ban being imposed on cars with seat belts or road masks, meaning that all French people should respect it, because “This is the rule of the game in a democracy.”.

This general fight against Islamabad is also at the heart of his presidential plan for 2022, but without word. “Veil” Cannot be used: “Only enact specific laws aimed at Islamic ideology, which is a real omnipresent threat in modern times.”, We can read specifically in his manifesto for France. A bill “Already ready” Offers to ban “In public space, symbols or clothing that by themselves give an unequivocal and arrogant recognition of ideology” Islamist, but does not mention the gradual establishment in the first instance, especially for the purpose of public service.

April 7: “If we wear burqas, we get tickets”

Invited April 7 by our colleagues from RTL, the RN candidate clearly stated his intentions: “I’ll get a ticket if I wear a burqa”He promised, assured “Ask French” This is the measure that he judges “Fully applicable”.

“We are not fighting against the people, we are fighting against the process, against the omnipotent ideology called Islam.”Candidates have continued in the national assembly. “Therefore, the burqa will be banned tomorrow. So, if the burqa is worn, it is not stopped on the road, you will get a ticket.”

February 22: “An element of women’s submission”

When asked about the topic on the occasion of a special day “Candidates and young people” organized by France Inter on 22 February, the candidate said himself “Opposing the veil everywhere: in the university, on the street, in sports, absolutely everywhere”And speaking of the veil as a “Female submissive material”.

July 2021: “Ban the veil”

“We are only working to ban the burqa, to make it legally possible.”, Concealed the candidate in July 2021 during the RN Congress in Perpignan. A few months ago, in January, Marine Le Pen tightened its grip by presenting its counter-draft legislation against separatism to oppose the government’s already desired text. Article 1 “Prohibited” promise “Habits, publicity as well as publicity”Movies, press, school, “Islamic Ideology”. The text was signed by MEP, a former member of the LR, Jean-Paul Garaud who could take over the reins of the Ministry of Justice if Marine Le Pen is elected.

2017: A measure is already present in its program

In 2017, Marine Le Pen’s program already had a ban on wearing the veil. He wanted to apply the law to everyone in society, which is currently limited to schools from kindergarten to terminal: no burqas, no yarmulk or turbans across public spaces. “The veil is a work of submission to women”The candidate was dropped during a debate in 2017.

2012: Prohibited in public service only

In 2012, Marine Le Pen initially did not go that far. Its program calls for a ban on “wearing the burqa or any other elaborate religious symbol” in government administrative services dependent on state or local authorities. It was not a question of banning the street. A proposal that would appear a few months later, in September 2012, during summer school in La Bowl.

It was there that he expressed his desire to ban the burqa for the first time in an interview with Le Monde, but also to Yarmul. “Shop, transport, on the street”. When daily life reminds him that it is a “Liberation system”Marine Le Pen replies that it all depends on what you think is freedom.
