Louis Chagnon Joins the MPF
PLF - They did not go so far as to send you death threats, but you were yourself the victim of a similar incident, mentioned by Philippe de Villiers in his book Les Mosquées de Roissy. Can you review the affair for us in a few words?
LC - After giving a lesson on the Muslim world in which I told the historic truth, a defamation campaign initiated by MRAP, the Human Rights League and a collective of pseudo-parents of Muslim students, and based on falsified classroom notes, was launched against me and spread by the media. The School Board of Versailles became an accomplice when it agreed to requite the wrong done (they pulled out pages of my teaching materials and thus allowed Mohammedan censorship into a government school!) and they punished me with a reprimand, because to them, even though they recognized the historic validity of my lesson, to call someone an assassin just because he slaughtered hundreds of Jews is "simplistic" and "provocative".
PLF - Are you surprised by the Redeker affair?
LC - I'm the last person to be surprised by this incident, even less so by the cowardice of the Ministry of Education and the infamous attitude of MRAP, that would bring legal action against Mr. Redeker at the very moment when he has been threatened with death! The French people must realize that they have been living in a land of Islam since 1988, when it was so decreed by the Muslim organizations. Sharia applies therefore to Europe: we are already dhimmis and do not have the right to cast a critical eye on Islam. To do so is punishable by death.
PLF - Today, you have committed yourself to Philippe de Villiers. Can you explain the reasons for you support of the MPF?
LC - The current situation is the result of the political will of our elite and of our governments that for 30 years have opened our borders to massive immigration. A rampant Islamization of France is endangering our basic freedoms. Only Philippe de Villiers discusses the problem of the Islamization of our country and only he has the political will to end it. That is why I've joined his movement.
It is interesting to note that Louis Chagnon was at one time a communist. Like Robert Redeker, Alain Finkielkraut and others, he belongs to that group of leftists who are too intelligent or too honest to keep the blinders on indefinitely.
