A new generation of young Frenchmen declare war against the multiculturalist, socialist, pro-Muslim, anti-white French regime

They call themselves Génération Identitaire. As they express in this video, entitled “The Generation of National Identity—A Declaration of War,” they realize that everything about the contemporary French order, including its “forced mixing of the races,” spells their destruction as Frenchmen and as human beings.

(But couldn’t the males have shaved, so that they wouldn’t look like your typical discontented messy leftists? And one of the females has metal studs in her lips. Once again we see how even right-wing racial nationalists are wedded to the motifs of the dominant leftist culture against which they are declaring war.)

Here is a transcript of the video, which I’ve adopted and re-formatted from the transcript at Gates of Vienna:

We are Génération Identitaire.

We are the generation who get killed for glancing at the wrong person, for refusing someone a cigarette, or having an “attitude” that annoys someone.

We are the generation of ethnic fracture, total failure of coexistence, and forced mixing of the races.

We are the generation doubly punished, condemned to pay into a social system so generous with strangers it becomes unsustainable for our own people.

Our generation are the victims of the May ‘68’-ers who wanted to liberate themselves from tradition, from knowledge, and authority in education. But they only succeeded in liberating themselves from their responsibilities.

We reject your history books to re-gather our memories.

We no longer believe that “Khader” could ever be our brother. We have stopped believing in a “Global Village” and the “Family of Man.”

We discovered that we have roots, ancestry, and therefore a future. Our heritage is our land, our blood, our identity. We are the heirs to our own future.

We turned off the TV to march the streets. We painted our slogans on the walls. Cried through loudspeakers for “youth in power,” and flew our Lambda flags high. The Lambda, painted on proud Spartans’ shields, is our symbol.

Don’t you understand what this means? We will not back down, we will not give in. We are sick and tired of your cowardice. You are from the years of post-war prosperity, retirement benefits, S.O.S Racism and “diversity,” sexual liberation and a bag of rice from Bernard Kouchner.

We are 25 percent unemployment, social debt, multicultural collapse, and an explosion of anti-white racism.

We are broken families, and young French soldiers dying in Afghanistan.

You won’t buy us with a condescending look, a state-paid job of misery, and a pat on the shoulder. We don’t need your youth-policies. Youth IS our policy.

Don’t think this is simply a manifesto. It is a declaration of war. You are of yesterday, we are of tomorrow.

The worm has turned. The Leftist world-snake has at last begun to devour its own tail. The Revolution is now the Establishment; the Revolution must now attack the Revolution.

It had to be this way. It had to be Radical, unshaven, pierced youth who would start this. The conservative Catholic boys and girls, if any such there be in France anymore, are not going to throw Molotov cocktails at the Ministry of Turning Things Upside Down. They are too well-behaved.

It is when the yobs realize that they are under assault that the war begins in earnest.

I am heartened by the new “Generation Identitaire.” But I am not surprised. It was inevitable and it will grow organically. All of modern reality is there to give it an urgency. The explosion of the Third World populations and the life or death scramble to move to the West, commodity shortage, peak oil, mass debt, the truth about Islam, the intractability of IQ differences. an indoctrinated and fanatical political elite, all will be acting like hammer blows to forge such groups as Generation Identitaire into existence. One group may fail but another will spontaneously be generated. The daily headlines of the next 50 years will propel it forward.

DP writes:

I agree with Kristor. Look at the EDL. Their appearance does not indicate “nice, educated and civilised.” Far from it. What they project is tough, won’t give in or back down. If they grew beards (hopefully blonde), put on medieval clothes, and you have Charles Martell and his “real” men. There is something about beards—a rejection of the smooth faced feminised man, and an assertion of manhood.

The worm is turning. It will start in earnest after our withdrawal from Afghanistan, or when there are no Western troops in Muslim countries. Then the war will turn inwards.

I would like to notify you that there may be anti-Semitism or anti-Semitic elements lurking behind the video by Génération Identitaire. The Génération Identitaire video was put out by a French nationalist group called Bloc Identitaire. Bloc Identitaire was established by former members of the now-defunct French group Unité Radicale, which was explicitly anti-Semitic and anti-Israel.


Unité Radicale was a national-revolutionary group which was strongly anti-Zionist: one of their slogans was, “In Gaza or in Paris, intifada” (against the perceived Jewish threat).

Please explain the significance of Bernard what’s-his-name’s bags of rice.

Breivik was right.

LA replies:

What do you mean?

Dean Ericson replies:

Breivik saw that the white man wasn’t going to go silently into that good multicultural night, but that he would eventually rise up against the left (and their brown armies) in a great, bloody war.

But I should make clear that I doubt there will in the event be any need for a real, bloody war. It could happen, but I doubt it. As must be the case for any basically false ideology, liberalism is terribly weak and vulnerable, either to radical moral challenge, to sufficiently obvious philosophical incoherence, or to a sufficiently bad failure of policy. All three sorts of salients against liberalism are now gathering steam, and reinforcing each other.

All it will really take then for liberalism to collapse like a house of cards is for enough young people to notice, and be so impolite as to say out loud, that the Emperor has no clothes. This seems to be what is beginning to happen in France right now. Kids who would not have been caught dead espousing anything but the nihilist Marxist line even a few years ago are seeing through it. Once this starts to percolate through society, a Yeltsin moment can precipitate out of the mix with amazing speed. Once a weltanschauung shatters, a new one can crystallize almost instantly.

In an analogous development, coal miners have now begun endorsing Romney.

Yeltsin declares the end of the USSR in 1991:


LA replies:

That’s the most hopeful remark made at VFR in a long time.

However, in that scene Yeltsin was not announcing the end of the USSR. The photograph is from August 1991, when there was an attempted coup by the Communist hardliners and military leaders (referred to with predictable mischievousness by the Western media as “conservatives”) who arrested Gorbachev; and Yeltsin, then the leader of the Russian Republic, resisting the coup, stood on a tank outside the Russian “White House” and the soldiers refused to go on assisting the coup and the coup collapsed. It was four months later, in December 1991, that the USSR came to an end and was replaced by its constituent republics.

In response to Beth M.”s question about the “significance of Bernard what’s-his-name’s bags of rice”: Barnard Kouchner and his Doctors without Frontiers organized a famine relief for Somalia in the early nineties. When the ship arrived, Kouchner disembarked and entered land with theatricality from knee high water with a bag of rice over his shoulder. This gave him an image of a vain, do-gooder, leftist celebrity or as they say in France “Gauche Caviar.”

Judith H. writes:

The reference to Bernard Kouchner’s “bag of rice” harks back to 1992 when the founder of Doctors Without Borders ostentatiously marched into war-torn Somalia with a bag of rice on his shoulder to help the starving people. We all know how that ended. Kouchner was always an interventionist, and displayed his “humanitarian” ideals theatrically.

LA replies:

Sounds like Bernard Kouchner’s bag of rice was the equivalent of that other theatrical leftist humanitarian Bernard Henri-Levi’s trademark Seventies-style open shirts.
