Translated by Guillaume Durocher

Translator’s Note: The following is a translation from the concluding chapter of Jean-Marie Le Pen’s Mémoires: Fils de la nation (Paris: Muller, 2018), pp. 389-391. The title is editorial.

When I began to write these Memoirs in 2016, I decided to divide them into two volumes covering equal periods of forty-four years, the first going from my birth to that of the Front National, the second telling the history of the Front National as I had experienced it. I will take the opportunity at the end of this first volume to go back to my beginnings, to regain some perspective. Read more …

Whatever Happens, the Yellow Vests Have Already Won

1,390 words

Interviewed by Yann Vallerie; translated by Greg Johnson

Breizh-info.com: First of all, how do you analyze the events of these recent weekends?

What I find most striking is, first of all, the continuity of the movement. While the government expected the pressure to ease, it has not. It is the fruit of an extraordinary determination, to which is added a surprising maturity.  Read more …

Video of the Day
Russia-24 on Multiculturalism & Migration

98 words / 4:51

Russia-24 news recently broadcast a segment contrasting conflicting attitudes towards multiculturalism in Europe, discussing criminal charges being filed against people who objected to a Polish-Beninese woman being selected as the annual Joan of Arc in France, the rejection of a video application by the Hungarian town of Székesfehérvár to be the EU’s annual Capital of Culture on the grounds that it was too “white and Christian,” and Hungary’s conflict with the EU over migration. It’s interesting what is allowed on the news in Russia. Thanks to our friends at the Hungarian anti-immigration site, Custodela, for the English subtitles!
