Not long ago, French pundit and Zionist activist Alain Finkielkraut argued that the only thing that might keep multicultural France united was anti-Semitism: “This great multicultural France that we wanted to see as an alternative to the old France, well, if it exists and when it exists, beyond communitarianism, it is cemented precisely by anti-Semitism.” This was not, one presumes, a call to stoke Jew-hatred as the only thing which might prevent an ethnic civil war in France.
The statement perhaps makes more sense as a Freudian slip, if one bears in mind the late Joe Sobran’s corrected definition of anti-Semitism: “An anti-Semite used to mean a man who hated Jews. Now it means a man who is hated by Jews.”
There is perhaps no better illustration of this than the relationship between the métis Franco-Cameroonian comedian Dieudonné M’bala M’bala and the venerable French nationalist leader Jean-Marie Le Pen.
Basically, both “offended The Jews” — Le Pen in 1987 by saying academics should be allowed to study a “detail in the history of World War II” like whether or not the Jewish holocaust involved gas chambers, Dieudonné in 2003 by making fun of fundamentalist Jewish settlers and comparing them to Nazis.
Prior to that, neither had anything in common besides Le Pen being Breton and Dieudonné being half-Breton. Nothing had predisposed Dieudonné to any interest in the Jewish Question. Even Le Pen had never shown any particular interest in Jews though, being a virile free man, he refused to engage in self-censorship to bow to political correctness.
Dieudonné had in fact campaigned as an “anti-racist” against Le Pen’s party in local elections. He had been close to the Socialist Party. But then he found out that the hypocrites who had spread the good word of “anti-racism” to the Blacks and Arabs of France were not so tolerant of these same “anti-racist” principles being applied to a certain Middle Eastern ethno-state.
Bernard-Henri Lévy consecrated the fatwah/marriage of the two unbowed Goyim — an umpteenth example of ethnically-motivated sophistry — declaring “Dieudonné, the son of Le Pen.”
Both Dieudonné and Le Pen are proud men, so neither performed the mandatory teshuva. As a result, both got the mandatory treatment: they were ostracized politically and economically, demonized as the “new Hitlers” of the age, and made to disappear by the entire politico-media system — yimakh shemo — and they retaliated as one is prone to in the face of such harassment in the usual escalatory spiral. The two found solidarity in their loneliness. Dieudonné the métis trolled the Establishment by being friendly with Le Pen the nationalist and spreading rumors that Le Pen was the godfather to his child. That drove them crazy.
Today, many of Dieudonné’s numerous fans (White, Black, Arab) bleed into Alain Soral’s multiracial French nationalist metapolitical movement Égalité et Réconciliation. E&R activists, in turn, passively or actively support Le Pen’s mostly-White and anti-immigration National Front as the only credible French nationalist party. The National Front, for its part, is the only party which has not called for the persecution and a priori censorship of Dieudonné, and has defended his (and everyone else’s) right to free speech. Not union by any means, but a start.
Jim Goad has written that “If the niggers and the rednecks ever joined forces, they’d be unstoppable” — essentially a social class analysis of America’s racial problem. Certainly, seen from Europe, I would say Black and White nationalists in America seem to have a lot of common interests in fighting Hispanic immigration and toppling their shared plutocratic masters. After all, all non-Jews suffer in the face of Jewish racism. We are in a sense all Palestinians. Alliances have been built on shakier ground. There is also room for alliances with “righteous Jews” like Gilad Atzmon and Jacob Cohen who can see that their elites’ hysterical ethnocentrism is likely to backfire against the wider Jewish community.
Such a multiracial alliance is what some French nationalists want to achieve. This may seem unrealistic, and perhaps it is. But at the very least, this movement has deprived the Establishment Left of the adherence of a growing number of non-Whites. And if Alain Finkielkraut is to be believed, certain Jews’ Goy-hatred may well be enough to save France from Balkanization.
