Alain Jakubowicz and some of his Muslim friends
LICRA rejoiced loudly, seeing immediately the significance of the event. On the evening of Monday 24 July 2017, the National Assembly effectively incorporated into the criminal law, in the form of an amendment, a punishment of ineligibility for public office for people convicted of “actions related to racism, antisemitism, holocaust denial, homophobia and any form of discrimination”.
Alain Jakubowicz, president of LICRA, is full of himself: “With this vote, the National Assembly has adopted a proposal made by LICRA for a long time and which culminated thanks to many meetings I was able to have, alongside Mario Stasi and Sabrina Goldman, with the Home Secretary and a certain number of MPs.”
The consequences of this amendment are incalculable are further frighteningly reduce the freedom of expression in our country. People convicted of the following crimes will be, absent a grounded decision from the court, be declared ineligible for public office for a period of up to 10 years: “public insult of a racial character (article 33 paragraph 3 of the law dated 29 July 1881), public insult of a homophobic character (article 33 paragraph 4 of the law dated 29 July 1881), public defamation of a racial character (article 32 paragraph 2 of the law of 1881), public defamation of a homophobic character (article 32 paragraph 3 of the law of 1881), public provocation to discrimination, hatred or violence of a racial character (article 24 paragraph 7 of the law of 1881), public provocation to discrimination, hatred or violence of a homophobic character (article 24 paragraph 8 of the law of 1881), apology for crimes against humanity (article 24 paragraph 5 of the law of 1881), denial of crimes against humanity (article 24 bis of the law of 1881), discrimination (Article 225-1 and 225-2 of the criminal code)”
“If a law like this had been voted in at the time of the Pleven law in 1972, Jean-Marie Le Pen, among others, would no doubt never have been able to present himself for the votes of the French people,” said Alain Jakubowicz enthusiastically, adding, smugly, “France is no doubt the first country in the world to put in place laws that declare that the name of racists, antisemites, holocaust deniers, homophobes has no place on a voting ballot. LICRA is product of having been at the origin of a law of historic scope, as it was in 1972 during the adoption of the Pleven law.”
The Pleven law was another anti-free-speech law in 1972 that created incitement to hatred crimes in France. Crucially, it allowed third-party organisations to file complaints on behalf of the groups they supposedly represented. Jews lobbied for the law and these provisions specifically and have been making plentiful use of them ever since to suppress free speech in France.
Here the Jews are openly gloating about the suppression of democracy, boasting that a former presidential candidate (Jean-Marie Le Pen) would not even have been able to stand under this new law.
LICRA is roughly equivalent to the SPLC in the US, founded and dominated by Jews but not explicitly a Jewish advocacy organisation. For more about its history, see here (link).
