It is a shameful affair for Rachel Keke, La France insoumise (LFI) deputy newly elected in the 7th constituency of Val de Marne against former Sports Minister Roxana Maracineanu, with 50.30% of the vote. Barely entered the Palais Bourbon, old publications surfacing in the press and social networks praising Syrian dictator Bashar Al-Assad and the extreme right, which she would share through an order that is no longer traceable today.
Content for Bashar Al-Assad
Among the discovered publications, about which JDD has no direct trace, is the screenshot of the Facebook post that Rachel Keke would share on April 15, 2018 from the now inactive account. “The whole world must support Bashar against these criminal predators who are the United States, France and England”, can we read in the publication that is accompanied by a photo of the Syrian dictator with the logo of the Social Bastion, a neo-fascist group created in Lyon in 2017, to take over from the Union Good Defense Group. Dissolved in 2019 during the Council of Ministers, this radical extreme right-wing group with racist, homophobic, Islamophobic and anti-Semitic tendencies has since rebuilt into small local entities. His slogan: “ Ours before others “.

Ideas in complete disagreement with the messages conveyed by the MP are invested by the New People’s, Environmental and Social Alliance (Nupes). The 47-year-old former ivory maid gained her name in 2019 with a 22-month strike to bring out the demands of the maids of the Ibis Hotel in Batignolles against “contempt” management. “I am the voice of the voiceless. I am a maid, maid, security guard, caregiver, housekeeper, I follow all these invisible occupations “the day after the victory she declared one who defines herself as a “warrior”. When asked by JDD about these publications, the Rachel Keke campaign team declined to answer.
Election propaganda in favor of Marina Le Pen
Other publications, which she would share between 2016 and 2018, convey propaganda messages in favor of Marina Le Pen. If a member does not directly invite to vote for the far right candidate, the sharing of this content, broadcast by the far right page, Fdesoucheasked users of the social network Twitter, many of whom asked for a new message to be explained.
It didn’t take long for the controversy to gain political class. Nathalie Loiseau, a former minister in charge of European affairs and a member of the Horizons party, shared the publications in particular, commenting: “Every minute we learn more about some new MPs. Here, I’m sorry, but my hands are falling. »

Asked by RTL on Tuesday, the Val-de-Marne MP commented on this content without confirming its authenticity. “They say what they want to say, it won’t break me, it won’t bring me down, I’m strong”said the newly elected. “I do not know where they will look for, where they will look. » Also, at the invitation of the radio, Rachel Keke’s entourage specified that “Political thinking [de la députée] woke up 2019-2020 during the strike ».
