  1. ‘LaRacailleTue’ would be a right-wing parody of ‘LaRacismeTue’. ‘Racaille’ is a racist term for young french men of immigrant descent, which literally means a young wolf, but which translates substantively to ‘thug’ or ‘rabble’. It is both classist and racist in the context of the 21st century; around 2003/04 the then President Nicolas Sarkozy used the term to describe young rioters in Paris. It was a big scandal at the time, but I don’t think a centre-right pollie could get away with saying that now, hence the far-right’s use of the term.
