Special thanks to attentive readers of “Marine Le Pen and the Jews” who pointed out some other issues needing to be addressed with regard to the relationship between Marine Le Pen and the Tribe.
For the past few years Marine Le Pen has been romantically involved with a subordinate in the FN, Louis Aliot. Having first been opposed by traditionalist priests during the race to succeed her father as head of the FN for being divorced, she is now being accused, in some quarters, of compromising herself with this relationship. Louis Aliot has a maternal grandfather who was a Jew.
Like Mayor David Rachline (FN, Frejus) he would not fare well under the Nuremberg Laws. When one digs deeper a more complex picture appears. Both of his parents have been card carrying members of the FN since its founding. His mother, who was repatriated from Algeria during decolonization, was on her city’s local support committee for the Tixier-Vignancour campaign for President in 1965, before Louis Aliot was born. Tixier-Vignancour was the lawyer who defended the generals who led the putsch against De Gaulle in Algeria. His campaign was run by Jean-Marie Le Pen. It was after growing up in this Algérie française (OAS?) milieu that Aliot joined the FNJ (youth branch of the FN) as a teenager. If this is an infiltration and influence operation, Louis Aliot is working under a very deep cover.
Soral-Aliot FeudThe concerns about Mr. Aliot’s origins were raised when he visited Israel before the last Presidential Election. Alain Soral, who has had a long running feud with Louis Aliot, claimed that sources within the party he knows claimed Aliot went on a rogue visit, not telling Marine that he was going to Israel. This claim should be taken with a grain of salt. While there, Aliot met with Israeli politicians who refused to be named publicly and visited some French voters living abroad. It was probably then that he failed to negotiate an official visit for Marine Le Pen. Marine Le Pen also tried to speak to the listeners of Radio J (she had also spoke on Radio Beurre to Arab listeners) but death threats from their Jewish audience meant that she was the only candidate excluded from their station during the election.
The Soral-Aliot feud continues to this day. There are some differences between the two ideologically: Soral is strongly post-colonial and post-imperial with a certain number of non-White supporters while Aliot’s roots, described above, are firmly on the other side. Those who have never worked in electoral politics may feel that ideological differences drive alliances, however it is more often personal relationships followed by strategic concerns. Aliot is a longtime advocate of the dediabolisation strategy. Soral and Marine Le Pen had an arm’s length relationship during the last presidential election, but Soral ultimately fell on the wrong side of this strategy. While narcissism has never been an impediment to political success on its own, Soral is a loose cannon who cannot be trusted to stay on message. The jilted Soral found a willing audience to hear about Louis Aliot’s origins.
White Nationalists should take note that neither Alain Soral nor Louis Aliot are White Nationalists. Both are moving the ball down the field for us in their own way, but neither one is our champion.
Jewish activists and journalists have also used this story in an attempt to divide FN supporters.
Who is Behind the Smear Campaign?
It is hard to discern in which corner this “Jewish Lover” story began. However both the doctored photo and the misleading photo placing Louis Aliot in front of the Wailing Wall are both from liberal Jewish sources. Furthermore, the doctored photo is not referenced to another site, it is housed on the Jewish blog’s server, and I found no earlier posting of the photo. This does not definitively prove Jewpop.com is behind the forgery but it remains a strong possibility.The crudest photo is sourced back to the crushzion blog. A brief reading of this Swedish site left me scratching my head. While American audiences are used to unlimited liberty of expression, in Europe there are limits set by the EU and our respective countries. This site goes well beyond those limits in inciting and endorsing violence against a religious minority. We have to ask ourselves, why does this self-proclaimed neo-Nazi continue unobstructed while other much less bigoted commentators sit in jail?
Open Season on “Deniers”
Reaching out to the Jewish Community and emphasizing common goals is part of the dediabolisation strategy as the FN. According to Jean-Yves Camus, a sociologist specializing in the far right, about 5% of French Jews vote FN. Joining the FN is much rarer than that, these Jews see themselves as making a stand next to but not within the FN. (Party Membership is much rarer in France than in the US. Normally a subscription fee is included in membership. Also the primary that elected François Hollande was the first primary of its kind, so there are not the same pull factors to join either.) The votes are so few that their importance is symbolic, not numerical, as a signal to non-Jewish French, whose memory of WWII is strong, that the FN is not a return of Hitler. This leads to a strategy of support for popular issues and common goals like the islamicization of Europe, while avoiding unpopular ones, like historical revision of WWII which is illegal.
Furthering that goal, Marine Le Pen has even promised to root out “Négationnistes” in the party to Jewish Media outlets. Of course, since it is illegal to doubt the stories the government, and certain lobbies, want us to tell about WWII, it is rather expensive to do otherwise. Her father has spent hundreds of thousands of the party’s scarce funds for transgressing this law. For those familiar with the FN, it seems what Madame Le Pen really means is, I will kick out anyone who might sacrifice political victory in order to give an illegal/unpopular history lesson. This is because both her father and Bruno Gollnisch, who are President Emeritus of the FN and member of the Central Committee and the Political Bureau respectively, are convicted négationnistes. Likewise, some close supporters of Dieudonné (see “2013, a Dark Year Before the Dawn”) were present on FN lists in the last Mayoral election in Paris.
Both Marine Le Pen and Louis Aliot have defended Dieudonné’s right to put on his show and attacked government officials who would like to shut it down. It is notable that Louis Aliot’s Jewish grandfather, though he was big news in 2011, is never evoked by Louis Aliot in this tortuous 15 minute debate on Liberty of Expression vs. Anti-Semitism. He does however point to the hypocrisy of the lawyer for the leading anti-racist organization in France for expressing support for Femen’s actions while calling for the arrest of Dieudonné. However, for those who do understand French, watching both of these videos should make obvious the real concern that well-wishers of the FN should have. The nepotism of the Le Pen family is a constant risk to the reconquest of France. I wish Marine Le Pen every happiness in her personal life, but the stakes are too high for any second stringers being put on the front line. The problem with Louis Aliot isn’t that he is 25% Jewish but that he is clearly too dumb and uncharismatic to represent the FN on television.
What to Make of Jewish Support
I have personally known Sephardic Jews who vote FN. They are earnestly hoping for a protector to stop the Islamicization of France. Like so many other French, they put their faith in Sarkozy to do this and were bitterly disappointed. However, when a Jewish millionaire, such as the owner of the BFM media empire gives a helping hand to the FN, his motivations are not necessarily the same.
While FN supporters look to Marine Le Pen with the faith that she can stop the invasion of France and perhaps even begin the remigration of some of these invaders, the Ashkenazi oligarchs likely have a more jaded view of the capability of politicians, particularly a politician in a party which has never governed at the national level. Observers of any ideological persuasion may have confidence that Marine Le Pen’s arrival as the most dynamic force in French politics will increase community tension. Like a chess player thinking several moves ahead, these strategists are aware of the next moves. The Sephardic middle class and Orthodox Jews will be increasingly victimized at the hands of Arabs and Blacks. The political cadre and owners of capital among the Ashkenazi will cringe with neurotic fears of another Third Reich. And the Aliyah that Israel desperately needs will continue to flow at ever increasing rates.
