New pass of arms to the National Assembly. Far from the subject of Islamist separatism, Marlène Schiappa and Alexis Corbière strongly opposed the National Assembly on Friday, the minister accusing the LFI deputy of having made an “inelegant allusion” to her father, close to the rebels.
While the deputies planked on the framework of the associations, Alexis Corbière quoted for the attention of Marlène Schiappa the association La Libre Pensée, “which you know well”, he added.
A few moments later, the Minister in charge of Citizenship was indignant at this “personal” and “inelegant” allusion, seeing in it a reference to her father Jean-Marc Schiappa, historian sympathizing with LFI and president of the studies department of this association of strict defense of secularism.
“I adore my father”, continued the minister but, “in 2021, the girls are not obliged to think like their father”. Jean-Marc Schiappa is “an excellent historian, but also an excellent feminist, who would never use a patriarchal or authoritative argument to force one of his daughters to think like him – that was the meaning of the allusion. you did ”, launched the Minister.
In the hubbub, Marlène Schiappa added to the attention of Alexis Corbière: “It is you who are inelegant by making veiled allusions to my father. […] and in addition you don’t let women speak ”. “I thank Mr. Corbière for remembering my first name, which is Marlene and not ‘machine'”, she also slipped, alluding to remarks by Jean-Luc Mélenchon the day before, pretending to have forgotten his first name.
“The defense of women is an important fight”
Faced with the hustle and bustle, the chairman of the meeting Hugues Renson (LREM) called for the resumption of “serene debates, without falling into the ease of provocation on one side or the other”.
Alexis Corbière then expressed his “respect” for the government representative, and explained in particular that Marlène Schiappa had the opportunity to meet the association as part of the preparatory work for the bill against separatism.
“The defense of women is an important fight” and “I never implied that you think like the historian Jean-Marc Schiappa […] who turns out to be your father ”at the same time as“ our friend and our comrade ”, added the deputy for Seine-Saint-Denis. And to add: “When we disagree with you, we are not necessarily a macho or an anti-republican”, he added.
“Sexism has no place in our society”
