Hervé de Lépinau: France on the Brink of a Civil War

Hervé de Lépinau: France on the Brink of a Civil War

On October 23 Marion Le Pen of the Front National spoke at a rally in Provence. The leadoff speaker at the event was Hervé de Lépinau, a borough councilor and secretary of the Front National for the 5th constituency of Vaucluse.
Below is a video of Mr. de Lépinau’s speech. Many thanks to Ava Lon for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:


00:00   French, wake up! You are here in your country!
00:24   We are in our country!
00:48   For Marion: hip hip hurray!
01:08   Marion! Marion! Marion!
01:12   My dear friends,
01:28   I want to thank
01:32   the mayor of La Tour-d’Aigues for respecting his promise concerning this rally.
01:44   So, Jean-François, if you can hear me, I thank you for
01:48   honoring your word!
01:57   My dear friends, the main square of Grambois being too small,
02:01   we are gathered, in large numbers in the neighbor town
02:05   of La Tour-d’Aigues. And I insist on thanking its mayor
02:09   for giving us the permission to gather in his county,
02:13   when at the same time the old sirens of the left wing
02:17   of Vaucluse, called for banning of…
02:25   …when the old sirens of the left wing of Vaucluse were calling for
02:29   the banning of our rally.
02:33   In fact the borough secretary of the communist party
02:37   believed she had the right to demand that the prefect forbid our gathering
02:41   of patriots…
02:49   …under the pretext that we could become,
02:53   and I quote: “a threat of disturbance to the public order”.
02:57   No less!
03:01   Madame Allouis, because this is her name,
03:05   allow me to serve you this
03:09   thought of La Rochefoucauld: “Hypocrisy is a tribute that vice pays to virtue.”
03:21   Because the left wing
03:26   is expert in the field of disturbing the public order…
03:30   Illegal occupation of public space and exclusion of those who don’t think like you do
03:34   During your famous “nights of sleeping while standing” [leftists rallies].
03:38   Destruction of property [unintelligible] and shop windows during rallies,
03:42   [unintelligible] Violence against
03:46   the police force, when it’s not straightaway an attempted murder
03:50   with Molotov cocktails during those rallies.
03:54   Violence, degradation
03:58   and intimidation of the population
04:02   of Calais, perpetrated by your allies “no borders”.
04:06   And just yesterday this extreme Left,
04:10   the lesson giver, marched in Saint-Etienne to demand,
04:14   and I quote: “the disarmament of the police force.” Yes, you heard correctly!
04:22   “The disarmament of the police force”, all while this rally
04:26   was forbidden by the prefect, and police officers
04:30   are rallying everywhere in France to show their discontent, or even to show
04:34   that enough is enough, before attacks [against them] becoming more and more violent,
04:38   that they are victims of every day now!
04:42   Police with us!
04:46   Police with us! Police with us!
04:58   So today, my friends, the left wing is attacking the Front National
05:02   saying that it would be a threat to the public order.
05:05   It’s as if a hospital were mocking charity [pot calling the kettle black].
05:11   My friends, what unites us today isn’t hate of the other and of the institutions,
05:15   but on the contrary: it is love of Provence,
05:19   rich in her traditions and her legacy.
05:23   It is our love for a sovereign France, master of her own destiny.
05:27   It’s the right of free speech.
05:31   We are in our country!
05:35   It’s an imperative duty to denounce this politics of immigration,
05:39   absolutely crazy, led by a government at bay,
05:43   by a president massively rejected by French people,
05:47   and a dictatorial European Commission,
05:51   that works against the sovereignty of nations.
05:55   We are in our country!
06:07   Our movement isn’t directed against those illegals
06:11   who opportunistically…
06:15   …who opportunistically take advantage of our weaknesses,
06:19   of our riches and of our inability to control our borders.
06:23   If they are on French territory today,
06:27   it’s because someone at the highest level wanted to let them in.
06:31   Our adversaries are those who are politically responsible,
06:35   as much from the left as from the right, corrupt,
06:39   many of them with Qatari and Saudi money,
06:43   little concerned by our national interests, by our identity and by our sovereignty.
06:49   This activist, militant left, where cynical manipulators rub elbows with useful idiots,
06:56   have been busy for the last forty years rewriting the most beautiful pages
07:00   of the national novel, wanting at any price
07:04   to separate us from our Christian roots, from our thousand-year-old tradition,
07:08   and from our sovereignty, the guarantee of our freedom.
07:12   Long live France!
07:16   Freedom! Freedom!
07:28   This moral left (lesson giver),
07:32   using the methods of the Inquisition, decides,
07:36   in the name of the values of the Republic, who is good and who is evil,
07:40   with, as a sad result, a France on the brink of a civil war.
07:44   Finally, those besmirchers of memories, obsessive destroyers
07:48   of the national unity, which was hard earned and paid for in blood,
07:52   and whose terrible price is shown
07:56   in a macabre way on the memorials in our towns and villages.
08:04   But we have to be fair and recognize that this left —
08:08   Let’s recognize this left, and more particularly
08:12   in our department [county, borough], that they were advancing openly,
08:16   that they showed their true colors. The mayor of La Tour-d’Aigues
08:20   won’t contradict me on this point. When it was about
08:25   a vote to put to use the farm Bonpain
08:29   owned by the Borough Council of Vaucluse,
08:33   and being used by the illegals; or voting against the motion
08:37   “Our Department Without Migrants” presented by your representatives from the Front National,
08:41   the left clearly took a stand against the interests of French people.
08:45   With representatives from the right, known as republicans,
08:49   it was more complicated: they adopted
08:53   a more ambiguous attitude, if not dubious,
08:57   in abstaining, like some of them, or in voting for the provision of the farm
09:01   using the borough’s money destined for the lodging (others)
09:05   and voting against it, for the last ones. And it’s with inspiring courage
09:09   that they unanimously refused to participate in the vote
09:13   of the motion I just told you about.
09:17   Monsieur Chabert, the former mayor of Gorde and current
09:21   president of the Borough Council for the Welfare for the Aged, if it’s not
09:25   for the benefit of the electoral agreements, concluded with the socialists/communists,
09:29   who doesn’t miss an opportunity to remind them of good memories
09:33   and make them masters of ceremony in the organizing of the hypocrites’ ball.
09:37   Such is the ni-ni [leftist policy, meaning: neither privatisation, nor nationalization]
09:41   replacing the constitutional values in the actions of those people.
09:45   I see it as a proof of the latest declarations
09:49   by our [unintelligible] deputy of the 5th constituency, who
09:53   isn’t a fan the of subject of ni-ni; and I quote him: “When I don’t say ‘welcome’ to the migrants,
09:58   it’s not on the one side a nice representative, and the other an evil cold-blooded representative.
10:02   But this welcoming politics is stupid and short-sighted.” Monsieur Aubert
10:09   criticized last Wednesday, on radio France Bleu Vaucluse, the merits of our rally.
10:14   And I’m citing him again: “the freedom to rally exists,
10:18   but it’s agitation. We should rather look for
10:22   quiet solutions.” But what quiet solutions,
10:26   Monsieur Aubert? A cup of chamomile? An infusion of
10:30   medicinal herbs? You aren’t suggesting anything concrete:
10:34   [unintelligible] and a soft, weak hand as usual. Because you have to give to the rightist voter,
10:38   sovereignist and conservative, the impression that you are keeping a stiff upper lip.
10:42   And no, [unintelligible] he formulated a proposition
10:46   He remembers that Francis Adolphe, the socialist mayor of
10:50   Carpantras, invoked some weeks ago the alleged case of a catholic family
10:54   in his county, who wanted to welcome migrants into their home.
10:58   Julien Aubert estimated that, and I quote him: “Francis Adolphe took his idea
11:02   to lean on the civil society.”
11:06   Fine, but what are the agnostics and atheists,
11:10   Buddhists, Muslims suggesting? The majority of French who aren’t
11:14   Catholics in Vaucluse. Monsieur Aubert. Monsieur Chabert,
11:18   Monsieur Adolphe, Monsieur [unintelligible] are you ready to
11:22   welcome the illegals in your home? Alas, crickets.
11:26   Those beautiful souls are absent. Do what I say, not what I do.
11:34   And this good example is being provided by the highest level
11:38   of the state, since the president of the Republic answered the question:
11:42   “Would you let the immigrants use your secondary residence?”
11:46   He answered, with an outrageous cynicism: “I’m sorry;
11:50   they [my secondary residences] are already occupied.”
11:54   Definitely in this world of Tartuffes [hypocrites], generosity is good but with
11:58   someone else’s money. This is why we have to
12:02   enter into resistance, when faced with this moral and intellectual terrorism!
12:06   That elementary principle has to be strongly reinforced!
12:10   True charity begins with yourself! Our people before the others!
12:19   We are in our country!
12:27   We are in our country!
12:31   Let’s remind, let’s remind
12:35   all those yelling do-gooders that Vaucluse is
12:39   The sixth-poorest department in France,
12:43   that we have retired people who survive on misery pensions,
12:47   that we have an unemployment rate of more than 20%, that we live the consequences
12:51   of exponential immigration, that we have to close the hearths of radical
12:55   Islamists in a context of the highest terrorist threat.
12:59   No, do-gooders, sirs,
13:03   Vaucluse cannot afford your short-sighted generosity.
13:07   Vaucluse cannot handle it any longer!
13:11   Why such sudden ease in welcoming, feeding and treating
13:15   defraying the cost of individuals who entered our territory illegally,
13:19   when a number of our people
13:23   lack everything and don’t warrant anything anymore?
13:27   My friends,
13:39   My friends, we have to see the reality:
13:43   the Front National alone defends the interests of the people from Vaucluse
13:47   against those unjust policies causing social tensions.
13:51   Only your representatives from the Front National
13:55   have the courage to oppose the destructive forces
13:59   of the Politically Correct. Because the socialist government
14:03   has clearly announced who its enemies are.
14:07   Prime Minister Valls, yesterday in Tours,
14:11   fiercely warned the French people, I quote:
14:15   “Those who would oppose the welcoming of the refugees will find
14:20   the state blocking them.”
14:24   My friends,
14:28   The French people have the right to answer him:
14:32   Article 35 of the Declaration of Rights of Man:
14:36   “When a government violates the rights of the people,
14:40   insurrection is, for the people and for every part of the people,
14:44   the most sacred right and the most indispensable
14:48   of duties.”
14:52   My friends, this government and its representatives,
14:56   the enemies of French interests will have to expeditiously
15:00   leave the political scene in 2017.
15:04   The coming electoral deadlines will be critical for the future of our nation.
15:08   The choice is very simple:
15:12   it’ll be a beginning, or chaos. It’ll therefore be Marine [Le Pen]
15:16   as President and a Front National majority in the National Assembly.
15:20   Long live Vaucluse, long live France!
15:28   Marine for president!
