Disinfo: La République en Marche (LREM) and Nathalie Loiseau disrespect women’s rights


Madame Loiseau asked “why do Islamic head scarfs bother people more than the veil of Mother Teresa?” LREM head of the list Nathalie Loiseau compares the Islamic veil, a political item and the submission of women to the veil of the nuns such as Mother Teresa!
LREM will do nothing to fight against Islamism, nor to preserve our civilisation and women’s freedom. Nathalie Loiseau’s comments show LREM’s stance on women’s rights in general.


Part of a series of manipulative messages targeting Nathalie Loiseau by Russian sources in France. This article extrapolates and distorts the message of Nathalie Loiseau. No evidence given that LREM or Natalie Loiseau disrespect the rights of women.

Nathalie Loiseau wrote in her book entitled "Choose everything" published in 2014, "Why does our society so ardently rely on and especially against the veil of the Muslims? Do we have so many lessons to give, we who covered the head of women in the churches not so long time ago? [...] Why does the Islamic headscarf bother us more than the veil of Mother Teresa or Sister Emmanuelle?"

The whole book is about women's rights, against discrimination, the difficulties that Loiseau faced herself as a woman in politics and about different living conditions of women in different countries, women whom she had met in person previously.

When asked to comment on her previous remarks on the Islamic head scarf, Natalie Loiseau explained to BFM TV that she thinks, for example, about Latifa Ibn Ziaten who lost her son killed by a terrorist racist attack and fights for tolerance. "This woman wears a scarf. Do I have a reason to tell her to stop putting it on?" Loiseau also added: "From the moment a woman is not subjected to oppression, is not in submission, I respect her choice. On the other hand, when a woman is not free to do what she wants, to dress as she wants, to go out, to go to school, to work, to do what she wants to do, she will always find me at her side".

Accusations against Russia in the MH17 investigation are a part of the information war against the country

Accusation against Russia regarding the tragedy of MH17 in July 2014 is a part of information war against Russia, that has been ongoing since Ukrainian Maidan.

The announcement of the Joint Investigation Team [regarding the criminal persecution of 4 suspects for shooting down the plane] is an ordinary information dump in this war.


One of the many recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the downing of MH17.

On the 19th of June, 2019, the Public Prosecution Service of the Netherlands announced it will prosecute four suspects - Russian military and intelligence officers Igor Girkin, Sergey Dubinskiy, Oleg Pulatov  and Ukrainian national Leonid Kharchenko, commander of the military combat unit in Donetsk, for bringing down Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 on the 17th of July 2014 killing all 298 passengers and crew.

The protests in Georgia is a part of a larger programme of CIA destabilisation

One thing is certain in any such mass protest – few, if any of them, are spontaneous protests by ordinary citizens. Careful planning goes into any attempted coup or regime change—and that usually comes from the West. This has especially been the case in Georgia, dating back to the so-called Rose Revolution of 2003, and even earlier, to the free fire zone days of the early 90s.

Now Georgia is again in the news, not only over how the weaponisation of gay pride is part of a larger programme of CIA destabilisation.


No evidence given.

This is a recurring pro-Kremlin narrative casting civil uprisings in other states as US-funded "colour revolutions", also present in the case of Georgia, Ukraine, Belarus, Venezuela. Consistent with multiple pro-Kremlin disinformation narratives about the US and its global role. 

The EU wants Italy to choose between letting its economy die or committing economic suicide

The EU wants Italy to choose between the following two options: to let the Italian economy die or commit economic suicide by implementing “Greek-style financial recipes”.


Recurring pro-Kremlin and anti-EU narrative blaming the EU and “EU elites” for being controlling and for impoverishing Italy and imposing harsh austerity policies that produce economic stagnation. No evidence given to support this claim.

In December 2018 the European Commission, which monitors eurozone states’ budgets, refrained from initiating disciplinary steps against Italy over its growing debt. The European Commission has recommended initiating disciplinary procedures against Italy because the country has failed to comply with rules on public debt. The Commission report states:
