France, Homofascism, and the End of Freedom

Jun 28, 2013

If you want to know what the end of freedom looks like, simply look at France. With the ruling elites aligning themselves with the radical homosexualist agenda, they have declared war on their own citizens. Things are very dark right now in France, all because the militants have gotten in bed with the powers that be.

It is quite shocking to see a homo-police state emerge right before our very eyes, but that is what we have in France. Millions upon millions of ordinary French citizens are protesting the out-of-touch government and its sell-out to the radical homosexual lobby.

Plenty of recent reports about this have appeared, so let me cite some of them. Legal expert J.C. von Krempach puts it this way: “It is as foreseeable as it is unavoidable: a government that abuses its power to impose absurd and counter-natural laws such as on same-sex ‘marriages’ will soon face massive protest. And given that such laws cannot be defended with rational arguments, those in power take recourse to violence and blatant human rights abuse.

“Sadly, France is now in such a downward spiral. All those among us who believe in human rights and civil liberties should closely watch what is going on in this country, which once proudly thought of itself as the place where human rights originated, but which is now turning into something like a dictatorship in which gender-theory and homosexualist ideology hold sway, while human rights defenders are persecuted and the freedom of opinion is trampled upon.

“There is now a first victim to deplore. His name is Nicolas, a 23 year old student from Angers, who was arrested while peacefully protesting against the absurd re-definition of marriage and family by his country’s government. He has now been sentenced to one month of imprisonment for ‘rebellion’.”

“Rebellion.” Did you get that? All dictatorships of course hate any form of resistance and disagreement to the state. He continues, “This judgment apparently is intended as a clear message to all citizens that still dare to oppose the new gay-fascism: we are not going to listen to you, nor engage in any rational argument about the meaning of marriage and the family, but we will simply put you in jail. Dissident opinions will be silenced at all costs.

“Meanwhile, disturbing video footage has emerged on the internet. It shows how policemen mingled among the peaceful crowd that protested peacefully in favour of marriage and family on 26 May. These ‘agents provocateurs’ had the task of artificially provoking the violent ‘incidents’ that Manuel Valls, the French Minister of the Interior, had ‘warned’ against prior to the demonstration. The use of ‘agents provocateurs’ is a feature that is typically used by totalitarian regimes. It shows how far the gay lobby in Europe is prepared to go to push through its agenda.”

And a recent report documents all this. As Hilary White states, “A report will be presented today at a hearing at the Council of Europe detailing systematic use of excessive and violent police actions by France’s socialist government to suppress opposition to the same-sex ‘marriage’ law. The report on the French ‘Manif pour Tous and its police repression’ will be presented in conjunction with today’s session of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe and will be presented to the United Nations in Geneva.

“The hearing was organized by the European People’s Party and the Strasbourg-based European Centre for Law and Justice, in the presence of Luca Volontè, President of the EPP Group. The report contains numerous testimonies of victims of police brutality in the course of several mass demonstrations against ‘gay marriage.’

“Since late 2012, millions of French citizens have participated in peaceful protests throughout France defending the natural family and the rights of children against the French government’s new gay ‘marriage’ law. The ECLJ says that in sheer numbers, this is the largest mass social movement in France since the epoch-making demonstrations of May 1968….

“The report records that from the 24th to the 26th of May, ‘around 350 people were arrested and held in custody for up to three days’. Of these 350 people, only seven were convicted, and received only light sentences. ‘The other arrests were arbitrary and were aimed to stop the social movement, in violation of fundamental freedoms of expression and manifestation,’ the report says.

“In addition to the 350 arrests, hundreds of people were arrested and detained for several hours under the pretext of identity checks. Often, they were arrested for wearing clothing marked with the symbol of the movement. Grégor Puppinck, ECLJ director said that ‘at no time have the legality of these arrests been checked by an independent magistrate. This demonstrates a serious and structural dysfunction of the procedures of identity checks and of police custody, which were employed as arbitrary sanctions, imposed without judgment’.”

Another write-up says this: “An international lawyer has filed complaints against France in the UN Human Rights Council for brutalizing peaceful demonstrators. Videos show French police beating marriage demonstrators, using tear gas and clubs against women, men, elderly and children.

“Homosexual marriage and adoption became law in France on May 18. But a movement numbering millions of French citizens is determined to change that. La Manif Pour Tous, which means ‘demonstration for all’, is not relenting despite the government’s attempts to intimidate and violently repress them. Since the law passed, La Manif has followed French President Francois Hollande with colorful demonstrations characterized by clean-faced youth, families, and elderly who believe children have a right to a mother and a father.

“French authorities have decided pro-family demonstrators are a public threat. Riot police show up anywhere the demonstrators appear. They have been subject to baseless identity checks, arbitrary arrests and detentions, as well as police brutality through physical assaults and tear gas. Included in those roughed up by police has been Christine Boutin, former Cabinet Minister for the Sarkozy government who was tear-gassed, and Jean-Fredrick Poisson, a Member of the French National Assembly.

“A report in Le Figaro has estimates of over 1000 arrests and 500 detentions since May 26. More than 150 individuals have filed complaints through different redress mechanisms. In comparison, when violent riots erupted following a victory of the Paris soccer team in May only 11 people were arrested. Nearly 300 were arrested at a La Manif demonstration the same month.”

What we are seeing in France is just the tip of the iceberg. Wherever special rights for homosexuals, including marriage and adoption rights, are granted, that means everyone opposed will have to conform and affirm all this, or feel the heavy hand of the law. Young Nicolas is now in prison for standing up for what is right. You may well be next.

  • I don’t like feeling angry on a Friday afternoon at the end of a working week, but I am after reading this.

    Ross McPhee

  • Thanks Ross. Yes this should make all of us angry, and then move us to action.

    Bill Muehlenberg, CultureWatch

  • How would it be if a lot more, say hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands, of normal people kept at it with the protests and got themselves arrested & jailed and threw their system into complete overload and chaos? Or all went on strike? The mind boggles… but I also realize it’s easy to suggest from the comfort of my home, and to do that a lot of people would be putting their livelihoods on the line. Now I have never done this before but I will take up your suggestion of contacting the French embassy in support of that young man Nicolas.

  • Victorious Gaystapo and their gay-rights storm troopers are now on a roll. Their next key target is to re-define Christian morality. No doubt, their best minds will be devoted to this. If they succeed, then any resistance to their pernicious lifestyle will be neutralized. You can guess their future arguments from this piece:

  • Our opponents said that this would never happen and they mocked us for even suggesting such a thing. It does seem that these warning will never be heeded because they actually don’t care as long as they won’t get done in, but they don’t realise what it actually means for them until it is too late. History has shown what will happen and yet so many people just say that this time is different. No wonder why we keep making the same mistakes as in the past.

    Ian Nairn

  • I have seen this before and am appalled by it. I feel sick watching Kevin Rudd today and his manipulation of language and sheer hypocrisy and words on redefining marriage…oops ‘marriage equality’.
    I am truly starting to feel very, very alarmed at the blindness of people and the way Kevin Rudd is projecting himself. If I thought Julia was bad, this is worse!
    I have sent my emails off to the French Embassies, and also emailed Tony Abbott asking him to stand firm on his original stand on this issue and not to cave into PC pressure. I have also emailed Kevin Rudd. We must not give up!
    I truly will be continuing to pray that this does not become law in this nation and call on all christians to join in the 40 days of prayer and fasting which has been called prior to the election.

    Sandy Anderson

  • Now he is in solitary confinement.
    http://www.contre-info.com/le-prisonnier-politique-nicolas-bernard-buss-place-a-lisolement-pour-sa-securite

    Translated into English it says this:
    The political prisoner Nicolas-Bernard Buss solitary confinement “for his safety”

    Young Nicolas-Bernard Buss, activist opposed to the distortion of marriage and founding member of the “Watchers” shockingly sentenced to two months in prison, was placed in solitary confinement by the prison administration “for his safety.”

    His regime is strict: no visitors except his lawyer, no visiting room, meals delivered by a trapdoor. A dozen doors separate the cell common areas. However, the young prisoner finds solace in the hundreds of letters of support he receives every day and would be “serene” according to his family.

    What an absolute joke this is, but thankfully this guy is taking all for a cause he believes in and won’t give up and I think he is actually not too worried about being in jail.

    Ian Nairn

  • Here is a joke from the ABC propaganda machine supporting the outright lies of the homosexual agenda machine;

    http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-06-28/kevin-rudd-gay-marriage-referendum-dismissed-by-advocates/4788796

    So the gay lobby are offered a chance to get the gay marriage they want but strangely claim a referendum would cause “fear-mongering” and harm to homosexuals?!

    “It could potentially be deeply polarising, becoming a platform for fear-mongering against the gay and lesbian community, and we think that our politicians are elected to make these kinds of decisions, rather than hand-balling them back to the voters.”

    Yes, why wouldn’t any Australian want a small, biased group of morally bankrupt politicians to redefine the civilisation defining institution of marriage into something that defies logic and biology?

    More like no one will vote for gay marriage because most do not want it and the only way to get it through is said morally bankrupt politicians.

  • Bill, this is very disturbing stuff. I’m not a militant person, but I’m angry enough to take the actions you suggest, and send emails in support of Nicolas. May God bless him for his courage.
    I thought this comment (a daily reading from Creation Research Institute) was very relevant, and an extra prod for me to take action.

    June 29, 2013
    If I Perish
    “Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish.” (Esther 4:16)

    This is the courageous testimony of Queen Esther as she prepared to risk her own life in order to save the lives of her people. It was a capital crime for anyone to intrude into the king’s throne room unbidden, but she was willing to do so in order to do the will of God, knowing that “we ought to obey God rather than men” (Acts 5:29).

    In the same spirit, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego were willing to enter the fiery furnace rather than to worship the humanistic gods of Babylon, testifying to Nebuchadnezzar that “our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king. . . . that we will not serve thy gods” (Daniel 3:17-18).

    God did deliver Esther and the three Jewish youths, but there have been many through the ages who have died for their faith rather than deny their faith. All the apostles (save John) died as martyrs, for example, and so have countless others throughout the centuries. “They loved not their lives unto the death” (Revelation 12:11), if it meant denying their Savior.

    Believers in many nations are suffering such persecutions even today, and the time is coming when the last great God-rejecting king of the earth (called the “beast” in Scripture) will “cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed” (Revelation 13:15). If a similar choice should ever confront us, may God give us the grace to say with Paul that “Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death” (Philippians 1:20), and with Esther: “If I perish, I perish.” HMM

  • Simon, the other reason I have heard, and this comes from Boris Johnson, mayor of London is that such voicing of opposition to homosexuality would rebound violently, particularly on the Christians, and therefore for the sake of public safety, he is prepared to silence all dissident remarks. In other words, like a protection racket pretending to give protection, he is in fact menacing the very people he purports to protect.

    When Boris Johnson says that he cannot vouch for the safety of the indigenous population, especially Christians, he is also saying, they are second class citizens who have no right to be protected by the police, in the same way that Christians are third class or no class citizens in Muslim countries. They are Dhimmi or in our case Sodhimmi.

  • I guess the ‘socialist’ government didn’t care much for the rising up of the people and the grass roots protests.

  • Robert Gagnon, the superman of homosexual theology wrote this article back in 2007. Like a bomb with a long delayed fuse, but also with controlled explosions it is now going off.

  • Sir

    You are right. Homosexuality is indeed linked to fascism. At least one prominent homosexual has admitted the connection: http://www.rationalskepticism.org/news-politics/johann-hari-gay-men-at-the-heart-of-fascist-movements-t35435.html

  • And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

    God help us.

  • Sir

    I have just completed watching the clip provided by Mr Skinner – I am deeply shocked.

    Innocent protestors, men, women and children wrenched from the safety of their friends, savagely beaten, tear gassed, arrested, and one youth charged with ’rebellion’ – convicted and locked in solitary confinement.

    The Police themselves look like Terminator clones – a movie which projects homosexual sado-masochistic symbolism.

    A petition signed by over 700,000 French citizens – ignored by the French government (as the petition signed by over 600,000 British citizens was ignored by the British government); any debate, argument, democratic procedure exercised – is blocked and ignored.

    The more I think about the brutality, applied with indiscriminate ruthlessness, the more I see that the lie can only be maintained, ultimately, by: violence.

    Dee Singh

  • That video sent by David Skinner is deeply concerning & what is even more concerning is the fact that that sort of information is being suppressed – the general public in other countries are being hoodwinked about what is really taking place, so that they can’t even make an informed choice about what they would be willing to allow/not allow in other parts of the world … how soon before we could see similar scenes on the streets of Australia, for the same reason?? Not too long I suspect, if the Greens & Labor are given the opportunity to have their way …

  • Pray for Tony Abbott not to lose his nerve. (Mr Rudd has already come out for gay marriage.) Pray for him not to lose his leadership too as others in his party would not hold the line.

    “Vladimir Putin signs ‘gay propaganda’ ban in Russia

    From: AFP June 30, 2013 10:55PM

    People will be fined and possibly deported for disseminating homosexual “propaganda” under a controversial new law in Russia.

    RUSSIAN President Vladimir Putin has signed into law a controversial bill punishing people for homosexual “propaganda”, according to an official publication.
    The law introduces fines of up to 5000 rubles ($168.87) for citizens who disseminate information “directed at forming nontraditional sexual setup” in minors or which may cause a “distorted understanding” that gay and heterosexual relations are “socially equivalent”, the publication showed.

    Critics have called the bill homophobic and so vaguely defined that it would inevitably be used arbitrarily against gays and stir hate crimes in the country. However, it sailed through the parliament and Putin had promised in advance that he would sign the bill.

    The fines go up to as much as 200,000 rubles ($6250) for officials if such “propaganda” is disseminated through the media or internet.

    Foreigners will not only be fined but face administrative arrest up to 15 days and eventual deportation, the law says. Organisations face fines of up to one million rubles and shutdown of their activity for 90 days.

    Earlier this week Putin denied the law’s anti-gay nature.

    “We are talking about protecting children from the respective information,” he said.

    “We ask that (other countries) do not interfere in our regulation,” he added, responding to massive criticism from Western countries and human rights groups.”

  • When fascism comes to Western Civilization it will be carrying a pink swastika, wrapped in a rainbow flag. AND IT HAS. Beware and reject homo-supremacy. 1930’s Germany embraced it and the world turned to hell. The Brown Shirts of “The Night of the Long Knives” fame are back but this time in pink boas and F Me pumps. Read the 5th Edition of “The Pink Swastika” for free at thepinkswastika dot com and be horrified by history repeating itself.
