Hear the voice of the Right in France. The Yellow Vests do.

by Fabius Maximus 

Summary: We are told by the news media about the right-wing parties in Europe. Just as Bush Jr. and Trump are Hitlers, Europe’s far-right parties are fascists. They do not want you to hear the Rights’ actual words. Here is a recent speech by a next-generation leader of France. Note how the Yellow Vest protests echo many of the themes that her party has been advocating for many years.

Marion Maréchal

Speech by Marion Maréchal
at Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) 2018.

Anyone who can make a speech like this will go far in politics. She speaks for the reaction against the Left, being proudly Catholic, nationalist, and populist. We will be hearing more from her.

Her bio, from Wikipedia.

Marion Jeanne Caroline Maréchal (10 December 1989) is granddaughter of France’s National Rally party founder Jean-Marie Le Pen and niece of its current leader, Marine Le Pen.  She is a member of the National Front and served as the member of the National Assembly for Vaucluse’s 3rd constituency from 2012 to 2017. Aged 22 years at the time of her election, she became France’s youngest parliamentarian in modern political history. After the 2015 regional elections, for which she received the best result for a FN candidate, she became the Leader of the Opposition in the Regional Council of Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur.

“In 2017, she did not seek to renew her mandate as a member of the National Assembly and resigned as a regional councillor. She is currently involved in the education sector and financing the creation of a private school project. In 2018, she removed Le Pen from her last name.”

Her speech.

…France was the first country to recognize your independence. It was it was by French blood spilt on American soil that our friendship began. Today, over two centuries later, here at CPAC we are once again standing side-by-side in another battle for freedom. This freedom is a gift. Economic and political freedom of speech, freedom of conscience, are our common treasures after 1000 and 500 years of existence. The French now must fight for our independence.

France is no longer free today. The French are not free to choose their policies, whether they are economic, monetary, on immigration, or even diplomacy Our freedom is now in the hands of the European Union. This European Union is not Europe. It is an ideology that looks only to the future while being contaminated with historic amnesia. An ideology without land, without people, without roots, and without civilization. The EU is in the process of slowly killing millinery Nations. I live in a country where 80% – you heard me correctly – 80% of the laws are imposed by the EU.

I’m not offended when I hear President Donald Trump say America First. In fact I want America first for the American people. I want Britain first for the British people. I want France first for the French people.

Marion Maréchal

That’s why that’s why I fight for French diplomacy to keep its unique role to act to act as a link between the East and the West. A long history has allowed us to form privileged ties with Africa, with Russia, with Asia, as well as the Middle East. We must be able to decide for ourselves our military and diplomatic decisions. Our forces are complementary. …

We cannot accept a model that creates slaves in developing nations and unemployed in Western countries I refuse I refuse the standardized world proposed by the EU. I consider that people have the right to a historical continuity. All I want is the survival of my nation, to be able to pass on not only manageable heritage, but also my intangible legacy.

This young French generation is not encouraged to connect and love this cultural legacy. They are brainwashed with guilt and shame of their country. The result is the development of an Islamic culture in France. After 40 years of massive immigration, Islamic lobbies, and political correctness, France is in the process of passing from the eldest daughter of the Catholic Church to the littleness of Islam. And the terrorism is only the tip of the iceberg. This is not the France that our grandparents fought for.

How did we get here how did we get here? Because the EU and French governments forgot one crucial point. To open oneself to the outside you must have a solid core. To welcome you have to remain and to share you must have something to offer. Without nation and without family the limits of the common good, natural law, and collective morality disappears as the reign of egoism continues.

Today, even children have now become merchandise. We heard now in the public debate we have the right to order a child on catalog. We have the right to rent a woman’s womb. We have the right to deprive a child of a mother or father. No, you don’t. A child is not a right.

It this the freedom that we want? No, we don’t want this atomized world of individual without gender, without father, without mother, and without nation.

So what do we want? Just like you, we want our country back. I came here to tell you that there is a youth ready for this fight in Europe today. A youth who believes in hard work, who believes that the flag means something. We want to defend individual freedom and private property. A conservative youth who wants to protect their children from eugenics and from the gender theory delirium. A youth who wants to …protect humanity from transhumanism.

Like the American youth, the French youth is an heir of a great nation. “To whom much is given, much is expected.” {Ed. Luke 12:48.} We need to convey our ideas into the media, culture, and education to stop the domination of the liberals and socialists. That is why I recently launched a school of management and political science. What is the goal? To train the leaders of tomorrow, those who will have the courage, the discernment, and the skills to defend the interest of their people.

The challenge is immense, but in the last two years I’ve shown one thing: never underestimate the people. Only a battle not waged is a battle already lost. Brexit in the UK, {??} in France, and of course the election of President Trump proved a fact: when the people who are given the opportunity to take their country back, they will seize it. Through your actions and your talents you have succeeded in putting conservatives right back on the top of the political agenda. Let us build on what you have achieved here so that on both sides of the Atlantic a conservative agenda may prevail.

I finish with a …quote which sends up conservatives’ modernity.

“Tradition is not the worship of ashes, but the preservation of fire.”
— Attributed to Gustav Mahler, and Austro-Bohemian late-Romantic composer (1860 – 1911).

You are the spark. It is now up to us to feed the Conservatives’ flame in our countries. …Long live the Franco-American friendship. Thank you.
