French mosque files complaint over pork pate in letterbox

Accompanied a threatening letter

Published: 18:13 April 18, 2014

Versailles, France: A mosque in the Paris suburbs said Friday it had filed a complaint with police after slices of pork pate and a threatening letter were stuffed into its letterbox.

Authorities at the mosque in Mantes-la-Ville, a town of 19,000 in the western suburbs of Paris, said the incidents reflected a “worrying climate” after the town last month elected a mayor from the far-right National Front.

The head of the association that runs the mosque, Abdul Aziz Al Jaouhari, said about a dozen mouldy slices of pork pate were discovered in the letter box on Wednesday.

The next day, an anonymous letter arrived calling Muslims “cockroaches” and wishing “good luck” to the new mayor “because he has a lot of work to do for a good cleansing, in particular of the Muslim race”.

“There is no question this was a racist and provocative act. It is the first time in the 12 years of the mosque’s existence that it has been the target of this kind of racist attack,” the association said in a statement.

It said it had filed a criminal complaint for “provoking racial hatred or religious discrimination” with police.

The association said the incidents were “especially worrying” given the “worsening social and political context” in the town after the election of FN [National Front] candidate Cyril Nauth in last month’s municipal elections.

Nauth won the town with 30 per cent of the vote, becoming the only elected mayor from the FN in the Ile-de-France region that encompasses the French capital and its suburbs.

French Marine Le Pen can be legally called a fascist

Madonna Defends Use of Swastika on Marine Le Pen‘s Forehead: Front National Party Threatens Suit

27 July 2012

American pop singer Madonna is defending her use of an image depicting French far-right politician Marine Le Pen with a swastika superimposed on her forehead after Le Pen’s party threatened legal action. Madonna said the image was meant to highlight intolerance toward immigrants and religious minorities and she refused to remove it from a video played during her live performances.

A music video, no longer on YouTube, used to say about itself:

Madonna performed her song ‘Nobody Knows Me‘ in front of a giant screen showing Marine Le Pen with a swastika on her forehead.

Skip to 1:32 in the footage below to see Marine Le Pen in Madonna’s show.

Marine Le Pen then threatened to sue Madonna for this.

The truth evidently hurts for racist French politician Marine le Pen; who inherited her Front National party leadership from her holocaust-denying father Jean-Marie Le Pen.

Though that other video is gone, this one is still on YouTube.

It is called Madonna Stade de France (Nobody Knows Me Interlude). After 56 seconds, the video shows Marine Le Pen with swastika, leading to much sound from the audience.

Front National‘s Le Pen can be called fascist, court rules

French far-right leader Marine Le Pen has failed in a bid to prevent political opponents called her a “fascist”. The Front National (FN) leader sued hard-left leader Jean-Luc Mélenchon for use of abusive language over remarks he made during the 2012 presidential campaign in which both were candidates.

“Why do you think that the French people would be the only people to want a fascist as leader?” was Mélenchon’s response to an opinion poll putting Le Pen in the lead in the first round of the presidential race.

The Paris court on Thursday threw out Le Pen’s case, ruling that this was fair comment in political debate.

“If the term ‘fascist’ can have insulting connotations when used outside of any political context or if accompanied by other demeaning terms, it has, on the other hand, no insulting character when employed between political opponents on a political subject,” it declared.

Mélenchon could “legitimately make his opinion known … without transgressing the limits permitted to freedom of expression on the question”, its judgement said.

“The whole FN policy of trying to silence journalists and political opponents … has failed,” commented Mélenchon’s lawyer, Raquel Garrido. “Madame Le Pen has today been condemned to put up with being called a fascist.” …

Le Pen, who is trying to clean up her party’s image, has threatened to sue anyone calling her “extreme”.

Last week she lost another legal battle with Mélenchon when she was fined 10,000 euros because her party distributed a fake leaflet in his name during a by-election in northern France.

Ms Le Pen herself had called Islam ‘green fascism’ and anti-National Front bankers ‘gold fascists’.

Dutch anti-Wilders-Le Pen poster

Dutch poster about Le Pen and Wilders

This is a poster from the Netherlands about the cooperation in the present European election campaign between Dutch xenophobic politician Geert Wilders and his extreme Right French colleague Marine Le Pen.

On the left in the poster, Jean-Marie Le Pen, founder, honourary president, father of his daughter Marine whom he appointed as successor, European parliament member and 2014 European election candidate of the National Front party is quoted: “The holocaust is a detail in history“.

In the center of the poster, daughter-successor Marine Le Pen agrees (she is on record saying that the only difference between her and her father is that she has more hair).

On the right of the poster, Geert Wilders says: “There is nothing wrong with the National Front“.

The caption at the bottom of the poster says: “Today, Wilders is in bed with all kinds of extreme Right parties which are full of racists, holocaust deniers and LGBTQ haters“.

Finally, the poster refers to the site, about who Wilders’ ‘Best Friends Forever‘ are.

The French fascists are buoyant.  Brimming with energy after recent electoral success, the leader of the Front national (FN) Marine Le Pen has come up with a new way of punishing the Mohammedan interlopers.  Their children should be made to eat pork or starve.  And in towns that the FN have taken control of, this will be policy: here.

French National Front politician advocates concentration camps for Roma

‘Concentrate’ Roma in ‘camps‘: far-right runner

Published: 04 Mar 2014 13:26 GMT+01:00
Updated: 04 Mar 2014 13:26 GMT+01:00

A National Front party candidate running in Paris’s municipal elections has caused outrage by suggesting the best way to deal with the country’s Roma population was to “concentrate” them in “camps”. It is just the latest outrageous gaffe made by National Front affiliates.

In a blog posting, the top candidate on the National Front’s electoral list in Paris’s posh 6th arrondissement lashed out at the presence of Roma people in his district and offered up a solution that has caused outrage among anti-racism campaigners.

Paul-Marie Coûteaux, a candidate for Marine Le Pen’s “FN-Rassemblement Blue Marine” party, wrote in his February 19th post: “But what can the Minister of the Interior do–apart from concentrating these foreign people in camps–where life would undoubtedly be so below what they counted on that they would prefer to flee such inhospitable territory?”

The comments were naturally seized upon by anti-racism campaigners in a country which has often been criticized for its policy of mass deportations of Roma, which reached record levels last year.

In a statement SOS Racism denounced “Coûteaux’s “vile words” and announced it would press charges of racism in the coming days “in light of the severity and wretchedness of this anti-republican text.”

His words also provoked outrage among Twitter users. “Apart from this the National Front are not racist hey? Paul-Marie Coûteaux wants to replay the night of the long knives,” wrote one of the many tweeters who compared his words to Hitler’s policies.

“Couteaux” means “knives” in French.

National Front election threat

The ensuing anger his comments drew online and in the French press came just weeks before municipal elections are to be held across the country.

There are concerns the National Front, with its anti-immigrant and anti-Europe stance, could put up a strong showing as it attempts to continue its recent march towards mainstream power. …

‘I’d prefer to see her hanging from a tree’

In October Anne-Sophie Leclere, who was due to run on the party’s ticket in the northern French region of Ardennes in March, was suspended by the party after comparing Justice Minister Christiane Taubira, who is black, to a monkey in a Facebook post.

The post included a photo montage of a baby monkey, with the caption “18 months”, next to an image of Taubira with “now” written below it. Leclere attempted to explain the post to a TV news reporter.

National Front compares Black minister to ape

“Honestly, she’s a wild animal, coming on TV with that devil’s smile,” Leclere told France TV.

“I’d prefer to see her swinging from a tree than in government,” she added, denying that she or the photo were racist, claiming, “I have friends who are black.”

Only last month another National Front candidate was barred from running for election after it was discovered he had a tatoo honouring a unit of Hitler’s SS division that operated in France.

Critics say this type of incident and the words of candidates such as Coûteaux reveal the true colours of the National Front’s members.

“Concentrating Roma in camps,… yes the National Front has changed… or not! It’s the same old shop, again and again,” Tweeted Damien Toumi.

Dutch nazis applaud Wilders-Le Pen collaboration

This video, recorded in the Netherlands, says about itself:

13 Nov 2013

Clashes between the police and left-wing protesters took place outside the Dutch parliament in The Hague on Wednesday. Demonstrators protested against the arrival of French National Front leader Marine Le Pen who met with the Dutch Party for Freedom’s (PVV) leader, Geert Wilders.

Approximately 60 activists banged drums and sounded horns in protest against Le Pen. Three people were injured and two were arrested when clashes erupted between riot police and left-wing activists.

Translated from Dutch weekly HP/De Tijd:

Extreme right-wing Nederlandse Volksunie praises cooperation of [Geert Wilders'] PVV party with [French] National Front

HP/De Tijd might have been more detailed about what makes the Nederlandse Volksunie so extreme right. They are open neo-nazis. They are Holocaust deniers. They celebrate Hitler’s birthday, and Hitler’s 1923 coup attempt in Munich, the Beer Hall Putsch.

December 27, 2013

by Frank Verhoef

The PVV will cooperate at European level with the National Front of Marine Le Pen and her anti-Semitic father Jean Marie. That’s good news, Constant Kusters of the far-right Dutch People’s Union NVU says.

Geert Wilders’ flirting with the National Front and Vlaams Belang is not equally well received everywhere else (one after the other resigning PVV supporter is not happy with that move), but in [Kusters'] Gelderland province [NVU supporters] are eagerly looking forward to the coming collaboration between the parties.

Kusters, the leader of the Arnhem-based extreme right political party NVU, which will participate next year in the elections in three municipalities, is completely in his element. He praises the PVV because the party has moved to the right. In a special Christmas video the far-right politician looks ahead expectantly to 2014.

Contrary to HP/De Tijd, this blog will not post that NVU nazi propaganda video. It will also not reproduce HP/De Tijd‘s links to the NVU site.

“You can see in the move by Geert Wilders towards the National Front and Vlaams Belang that the PVV has moved to the right. Our people have handed out NVU leaflets during the latest demonstration by the PVV in The Hague. Thus, you can see that the parties are joining hands peacefully.” Kusters, who recently authored a real political autobiography, believes that Wilders has changed in recent years.

“Earlier on, Wilders always used to bash the National Front and Vlaams Belang. Those, he used to say, were extremist parties. You can see now that the PVV realizes that they have no other coalition partners in Europe”, said the NVU boss in his Christmas message. Kusters is not alone in this. Visitors to the NVU site also stand behind Wilders’ plans to work together with the National Front: 75 percent of the visitors like that cooperation, according to a poll on the NVU Internet site.

French racist Le Pen’s anti-Roma hate speech

This video is called French minister riles EU over Roma remarks.

Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:

Sentence proposed against Le Pen: two months suspended prison

Added: Friday 15 Nov 2013, 15:03
Update: Friday 15 Nov 2013, 15:17

The public prosecutor has demanded a two-month suspended prison sentence for the former leader of the French National Front, Jean-Marie Le Pen, in a discrimination case. Le Pen is on trial because he said about Roma that they “steal like ravens.” According to Le Pen, Roma are thieves “because of their nature”.

The prosecutor also demanded a suspended fine of 10,000 euros. She thinks that the court must take into account the history of Le Pen, who has been convicted often because of discriminatory and racist statements.

Le Pen made his remarks about Roma and stealing ​​last September at a meeting of the National Front. They led to laughter and applause of the audience.

The verdict will be on December 19.
