Threatening Words from Act-Up

Catholic writer Bernard Antony, founder of AGRIF and Chrétienté Solidarité, has posted on his home page several articles dealing with ethical and moral issues in the forefront of recent events in France. The topics include Gérard Depardieu's rejection of French citizenship, Marine Le Pen's refusal to take a stand on anti-gay marriage demonstrations, the possible legalization of assisted suicide, the promotion by Pierre Bergé, head of the newspaper Le Monde, of medically assisted procreation, and the following article on a death threat from the subsidized homosexual group Act-Up.

Thanks to the website Riposte Catholique, we learned about the incredible explicit death threat against Catholics and opponents of homosexual marriage, formulated by a conglomerate of all possible marginal groups and relayed by the State-subsidized association Act-Up.

You can read, at Act-Up's website, the list of proselytes from the ideological and sexual orientations that have been brought together in this terroristic threat:

"WE, feminists, lesbians, trans, bi, pederasts, anti-fascists, abused patients of psychiatrists, HIV positive persons, asexuals, queers, abnormal persons, masochists, polygamists both faithful and unfaithful, hysterics, aborters, intersexuals (???), sodomites, whores, transvestites, pornographers, and other combatants, denounce the resurgence of respectability of the extreme right's positions, their wide distribution in the media and their influence on political decision-making."

This admirable motley crew is nothing less than called upon to take action against Catholics:

"We will not beg for the full rights that are coming to us. We will not reach out nor will we turn the other cheek: prepare the planks and the nails!"

Note: I assume "planks and nails" refers to crosses for crucifixions (or coffins?).

AGRIF cannot allow such a provocation to murder, indicative of a desire for a return to the barbarity of Nero's persecutions, in a Coliseum where the spectators in the stands were the same howling animals, to pass unnoticed.

These threats have been recorded by the notary and a suit will be filed at once with the State prosecutor.

Reminders: AGRIF is a Christian anti-racist association with legal powers that regularly defends ethnic French, whites, and Catholics and other Christians against defamation, threats and act of violence.

Chrétienté Solidarité is also a Christian association that works on behalf of Christians all over the world.

Besides the threat denounced above by Bernard Antony, I found this poster at the Act-Up website announcing the December 16 pro-gay marriage rally.  Is this not a threat as well? The rose is a symbol of the Socialist Party. It is also symbolic of the color pink, which in turn represents the gay movement. But is the knife going into the back of the figure on the left, or is it defending the figure? Both ways, it's a threat of violence.




According to Wikipedia, quoted at Défrancisation:

Act-Up-Paris is an activist association that fights against AIDS, created in June 1989, based on the American model. The 2009 budget indicates the association received 302,354 euros from the ministries, 45,000 euros from the Ile-de-France region, 11,088 euros from CNASEA, 131,500 euros from pharmaceutical laboratories, 100,000 euros from the Fondation Pierre Bergé. Act-Up is moreover a group with a strong collective identity of HIV positive persons. In 2009, the accounts mentioned "about 137 members" and "five salaried employees."


Note: CNASEA seems to be an agency that subsidizes apprentices. But I was not able to get definitive information on this entity.

I would say the poster shows definitely stabbing someone in the back, very much in character. The basic impulse of such people is toward death, not life, so the threats are not surprising.

Society, like the home, now and then requires a spring clean out. Fortunately, we are heading to a war, because Islam will force us to have a war in Europe.

War is terrible, but now and then, is the only instrument to clear out the build-up of detritus.

I am flabbergasted by the claims in this post Tiberge. Where is the call to murder? Did I miss something?

There is an implicit threat. Act-up does not say "We will commit acts of murder." It says "Let's prepare the planks and the nails", which is, as I stated, a reference to crosses for crucifixion or to coffins.

If some civil rights group, for example, said: "We will not beg for what is rightly ours. Prepare the cemeteries", this would be a threat of violence, even though it is expressed metaphorically. If the government spokesman of one country said to a government spokesman from another: "Either do what we ask or prepare the body bags", it would also be a clear threat, even if the word "murder" is not used.

However, I should add that I have not seen a response from Act-Up to the law suit being brought by AGRIF. So there may be another explanation for "planks and nails". So far, the French websites that I consult have assumed this to be a threatening statement from Act-Up, as is the poster that I placed at the end of the article. There is much violence at the Act-Up website, but it is either metaphorical, or implicit. Their hatred of the traditional family is, however, clearly stated. And so when they accuse the Catholics (and others) of hatred it is a way of projecting onto others their own passionate hatred of what we used to be free to call "normal behavior."

ok, so lets be clear. there have been no death-threats. Unless you are interpreting a literary references as one.

Act-Up is not so foolish as to say "We will kill" or even "We would like to kill", because to so do would violate the law. So they say it metaphorically, using images clearly referring to possible death.

When I posted a comment from a reader calling the Femen genocidal, a reference to the feminists' support for abortion, I was accused of being myself genocidal. Guilt by association, if ever... I presume you have no objection to that. Even though I certainly do.

You may see nothing in Act-Up that spells out "murder" in black and white, but for the Catholics in question there is nonetheless a threat, veiled though it may be (and I don't see that poster as veiled in any way, but quite clear).

What would you say if Southern whites were to say "The South shall rise again. Bring out the ropes." Would not every American black see this as a direct threat? Even though "rope" is a metaphor for "hanging?"

If it makes you feel any better, Bernard Antony's AGRIF association is usually thrown out of court. Anybody can say and do anything against whites, Christians, Catholics, and ethnic French. The courts rarely care. It's the reverse that matters. Should a Catholic say or do something against an atheist or a Freemason or a Muslim, he will land in court very quickly.

Your point of view is the liberal point of view that says that a criminal, no matter how threatening, cannot be regarded as threatening until he has actually committed a crime. And even then, if the criminal belongs to a protected minority he will be regarded more as a victim than a criminal.

I taught in the inner city for thirty years. We saw threatening behavior every day, we had students in our classes who were seasoned killers, we witnessed behavior that was totally abnormal, sinister and in every way threatening. Sometimes we would take a chance and try to have someone removed from our class, usually to no avail. There has to be a crime first. That is what we were told, by the administrators and by the labor union. So therefore it is not surprising that there are people who do not regard threats as having any meaning unless they explicitly say "murder", which is then a crime and punishable (maybe, depending on who issues the threat and who the target is).

For me a threat is a terrifying thing. It's a form of terrorism, even if it is bluff; its purpose is to terrify.
