Charles de Gaulle’s Hate Speech

Charles de Gaulle – leader of Free France (1940–1944), head of the Provisional Government of the French Republic (1944–1946) and President of France from 1958–1959 – had a serious problem with hate speech.

From a speech General de Gaulle gave on 5 March, 1959:
“C’est très bien qu’il y ait des Français jaunes, des Français noirs, des Français bruns. Ils montrent que la France est ouverte à toutes les races et qu’elle a une vocation universelle. Mais à condition qu’ils restent une petite minorité. Sinon, la France ne serait plus la France. Nous sommes quand même avant tout un peuple européen de race blanche, de culture grecque et latine et de religion chrétienne. …. Les Arabes sont des Arabes, les Français sont des Français. Vous croyez que le corps français peut absorber dix millions de musulmans, qui demain seront vingt millions, après demain quarante? Si nous faisions l’intégration, si tous les Arabes et les Berbères d’Algérie étaient considérés comme des Français, les empêcheriez-vous de venir s’installer en métropole, alors que le niveau de vie y est tellement plus élevé? Mon village ne s’appellerait plus Colombey-les-Deux-Eglises mais Colombey-les-Deux-Mosquées.” http://www.danielpipes.org/13279/enoch-powell-charles-de-gaulle

An English translation:
“It’s very good that there are yellow French, black French, brown French. They show that France is open to all races and has a universal vocation. But it is good on the condition that they remain a small minority. Otherwise, France would no longer be France. We are still above all a white European people, of Greek and Latin culture and of Christian religion. .... Arabs are Arabs, the French are French. Do you think the French body politic can absorb ten million Muslims, who tomorrow will be twenty million, after tomorrow forty? If we integrated, if all the Arabs and Berbers of Algeria were considered French, would you prevent them from settling in France, where the standard of living is so much higher? My village would no longer be called Colombey-the-Two-Churches but Colombey-the-Two-Mosques.”
What General de Gaulle said here is entirely reasonable, and correct.

And we can bet that virtually all the French and British men who fought Nazi Germany in the Second World War would have thought the same way about their countries.

Did the men who defeated Nazism fight to transform Britain and France more and more into majority Muslim nations? Did they fight fascists to have vicious hate speech laws imposed on Britain and France a generation later, which may as well be de facto Islamic blasphemy laws?

Today, if a British or French politician said what de Gaulle said, they would probably be viciously persecuted with hate speech crime and called “Nazis” by large numbers of truly sick and evil people on the Left and multicultural Right.


  1. The left think they're progressing towards the age of global, universalist, post-national mankind, whereas really they're just progressing towards the eradication of the European tribe by non-European tribes.

    Australian nationalists have long recognised that tribal socialism and genetic/cultural nationalism are not merely compatible - they are complementary.
