A French politician has caused outrage by suggesting that Adolf Hitler ‘did not kill enough’ Roma gypsies.

In the latest ferocious attack on travellers, MP Gilles Bourdouleix stirred up memories of the Holocaust, when the Nazis sent thousands of gypsies to the gas chambers because Hitler believed them to be sub-human.

Mr Bourdouleix, who represents a constituency in the Maine and Loire region of west France, was visiting an illegal Roma camp in the town of Cholet, where he is deputy mayor, when he made the incendiary comments.

Surrounded by armed police, Mr Bourdouleix was trying to persuade the new arrivals to move on.

But as he began to speak to community leaders, some of the Roma gypsies standing by began to make Nazi salutes in his direction.

Mr Bourdouleix was recorded by a local journalist saying: ‘Like what, Hitler didn’t kill enough’.

Challenged about his comment by some of the Roma men, Mr Bourdouleix said: ‘You compared me to Hitler, do you think that’s nice?’

Mr Bourdouleix then accused the community of incest, saying: ‘The other day, they called me a paedophile, even though half of their children are from fathers and grandfathers.’

Fabien Leduc, the journalist who recorded Mr Bourdouleix, has since transcribed a word-for-word account of the recoding.

Expel: Jean-Louis Borloo is now considering throwing Mr Bourdouleix out of the UDI Party

It has persuaded Jean-Louis Borloo, leader of Mr Bourdouleix’s party, the centre-right UDI, that he should consider expelling his colleague.

He said: ‘Whatever the real and unacceptable provocation the deputy mayor of Cholet, Gilles Bourdouleix, was subjected to, nothing justifies the remarks apparently made by him.’

Jean-Christophe Lagarde, the secretary general of the UDI party, meanwhile tweeted: ‘The words of Bourdouleix, even though made in the heat of the moment, were intolerable and incompatible with the values of the UDI.’

Mr Lagarde added: ‘The only possible sanction is his expulsion from the UDI, and this should be adopted by the executive committee next Wednesday.’ …

French politicians from both Right and Left have launched an onslaught on Roma gypsies in recent years, destroying their camps and deporting them back to countries including Romania and Bulgaria.

  1. It’s tempting to say that we didn’t bomb enough fascists in WWII, but that would be unkind. It is very depressing that people still drag up these stupid opinions, most right-minded people hoped that this sort of thing was laid to rest in 1945, I suppose the battle for “hearts and minds” continues. Poor old Roma seem to have faced nothing but prejudice throughout history and up to the present day. Why can’t folk just be nice to each other, live and let live. To have so much unprovoked hatred they must be very insecure people.


    • French “center” right politicians lost the presidential elections. Then, they started quarreling among themselves, with some advocating cooperation with the extreme Right National Front. That may have contributed to this anti-Roma hate speech.


  2. I do not know a lot about gypsies, but have not heard that they are militarized or kill people, nor have I heard that they are criminals as a sect, to me they do not seem to suffer from the desire of keeping up with the next door neighbor nor do I see them at golf tournaments and so forth, to me they are to be a treasured group that I think seem to be of noble countenance and a inspiration to many.


  3. “Hitler n’en a peut-être pas tué assez…”


    Pour Investig’Action

    « Comme quoi, Hitler n’en a peut-être pas tué assez … » ! Cette phrase abjecte, Gilles Bourdouleix, maire de Cholet, député, avocat et professeur de droit, l’a vomie au micro d’un journaliste au moment où, pris à partie, il cherchait à chasser des Roms de passage dans sa commune. Les Roms, Christian Estrosi, maire UMP de Nice, a promis, lui, de les « mâter ». Quant à Jean-Marie Le Pen, égal à lui-même, il a dénoncé leur présence « urticante et odorante » (sic).
