The war between Hamas and Israelcase

The left and the right have prepared the ground on which a populism thrives which is no longer the prerogative of the far right. A large part of the right no longer hesitates to repeat its vocabulary word for word and to chase its obsessions by using and abusing its favorite tool: simplification, analyzes the former environmentalist MP Noël Mamère.

In this world where vulnerability spares no one, we would be entitled to expect our democracies to help us understand its complexity in order to ward off withdrawal, resentment and anger, the best known fuels on the populism markets. Yet it is he who is at work today, dominating the political and media fields. He uses and abuses his favorite tool, “simplification”, thanks to which he draws the image of a necessarily binary world, with its bad guys on one side, and its good guys on the other; he designates scapegoats immediately delivered to the dogs of social networks and an “opinion” that he shapes by hammering home his obsessions. To choose from: “migratory submersion”, “wokism”, “Islamo-leftism”, “atmospheric jihadism”, environmentalists assimilated to “ecoterrorists”, “radicality”, the “enemies” of secularism accused of playing into the hands of Islamism…

Its objective is simple: the polarization of society. If we judge by the political reactions aroused by the demonstrations of support for the Palestinians in Gaza, the operation seems successful thanks to a sort of co-production of the far right, the right, Macronism… And Mélenchon!
