Truth is No Defence

“Immigration has become an invasion. The irreversible colonisation is the demographic colonisation, through the replacement of the population”. These words of plain truth have just cost a renowned French author a two month prison sentence and a hefty fine.

“Ethnic replacement, the Great Replacement, has been the most important event in the history of our country since it existed, since with other people the history, if it continues, will no longer be that of France,” was also deemed to be an unacceptable truth.

The French writer had previously been convicted of inciting racial hatred in 2014. The author of the Le Grand Remplacement, (The Great Replacement) describing the colonisation of France (and more generally of Europe) by Islamic and African migrants, is no stranger to controversy.

Italian weekly La Verità has reported that he was given a suspended sentence of two months and told to pay two anti-racist associations which were civil parties to the case – SOS Racisme and Licra – a hefty sum of money.

The judges found him guilty of “public incitement to hatred or violence by reason of origin, ethnicity, nation, race or religion through words, writings, images or public media by electronic means”.

The magistrates of the court of Auch cited the French intellectual’s speech delivered on 9 November 2017 in Colombey-les-deux Eglises, for the Conseil National de la Résistance eEropéenne, which Camus himself had shared on social networks.
