Faction of French nationalists carries out ‘anti-fascist’ attack in Paris

A reactionary faction of ‘traditionalist’ French nationalists carried out a disgraceful ‘anti-nazi’ attack against the 55-year-old French nationalist and revisionist Yvan Benedetti at the ‘Joan of Arc’ commemoration in Paris on May 9th.

This monarchist faction is a breakaway from the long-established traditionalist movement Action Française and was acting entirely without the support of the official Action Française leadership.

As can be seen in the videos on this page, the mob heavily outnumbered M. Benedetti and viciously punched and kicked him, but their victim bravely refused to run away. M. Benedetti is a leading figure in the radical French Nationalist Party (PNF) and was formerly a leader of the banned Oeuvre Française. He has been prosecuted several times and is a prominent ally of the author Hervé Ryssen, who was jailed last year for questioning the official version of ‘Holocaust’ history.

While attacking M. Benedetti, the mob can be heard chanting ‘anti-nazi’ and monarchist slogans. To his credit M. Benedetti regrouped with some comrades and returned to the scene of the attack so as to lay a wreath and deliver his speech, paying tribute to his old comrade Pierre Sidos, the Oeuvre Française founder who died last September aged 93.

Do the ‘traditionalist’ cowards who attacked M. Benedetti genuinely believe that ‘nazis’ are responsible for the state of 21st century France? Have they not perceived that the defeat of ‘nazism’ in 1945 also signalled the slow death of ‘traditional’ Europe? Can they point to a single monarchical figure since 1945 who has lifted a finger to defend our peoples, our race, and our traditions?

There is of course a long history throughout the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries of European royal families and their hangers-on being exploited (whether via ignorance or financial greed) to serve the interests of Europe’s enemies.

These range from the Spanish-Jewish gangster Juan March, who bribed Spanish generals and royalty as part of a high-level conspiracy to ensure Franco’s Spain didn’t ally with Germany and Italy during the Second World War; via the Anglo-Soviet exploitation of decadent royalist circles in Germany and Austria in that same period; to the boundless corruption in recent decades of Spanish King Juan Carlos and his fellow ‘royal’ scum in Saudi Arabia.

In France there has been an unparalleled tradition of serious revisionist scholarship and pro-White cadres within the academic community.

However there have also been persistent efforts to subvert nationalist movements in the interests of international Zionism. These appear to have succeeded in recent years with the success of such factions in dominating the inner circles of Marine Le Pen’s Rassemblement National, from whose ranks M. Benedetti was expelled for ‘anti-Zionism’, though even the most reactionary RN factions have never stooped so low as to launch physical attacks on comrades from other traditions at the Joan of Arc commemoration, which has usually been seen as a cross-party, cross-factional event.

Pierre Ceyrac, Mossad agent inside the French National Front

Mme Le Pen’s father Jean-Marie Le Pen and his Front National, the RN’s predecessor, were targeted for infiltration by the Israeli intelligence service Mossad during the 1980s. H&D has known for decades that Pierre Ceyrac, one of Le Pen’s leading officials, an MP and MEP for the FN, and a member of the ‘Moonie’ cult, was the principal tool of Mossad in its efforts to take over the FN. It seems that the Mossad plan suffered a setback in the autumn of 1987 when Jean-Marie Le Pen instead turned towards a form of historical revisionism (though he never fully committed himself in this direction).

The attack on Yvan Benedetti is the latest and most serious stage in this effort to suborn our movement.

While there will always be personal differences, policy differences, and differences of strategic emphasis within our movement, it should be clear that racial nationalists across Europe – including ourselves at H&D – stand with Yvan Benedetti against this brutal, disgraceful, and dishonourable attack by thugs who should now be viewed in the same light as the worst of ‘antifa’.

Public inquiry reveals police infiltration of 1970s National Front

Four of the young radicals who sought to take over the NF in the early 1980s: (left to right) Joe Pearce, Richard Lawson, Nick Griffin, and Steve Brady. Two of this group were involved in an earlier faction that was spied on by undercover policeman ‘Peter Collins’ who infiltrated both the NF and the Workers Revolutionary Party

Documents released this morning as part of a public inquiry into undercover policing reveal that an officer codenamed ‘Peter Collins’ infiltrated the National Front during 1975 and 1976.

Strangely this infiltration occurred not on the orders of his police superiors, but as an indirect consequence of his deployment to infiltrate a Trotskyist organisation, the Workers Revolutionary Party.

As with many far left groups, the WRP tried to latch on to any militant street activity, ranging from anti-war protests to the campaigns of vandalism launched by friends and family of armed robber George Davis.

An undercover police unit – the Special Demonstration Squad (SDS) – was created in 1968 in response to concerns about public order threats from a new generation of far left and ‘counterculture’ groups that had little or no connection to the old-style communist parties and fronts that MI5 and Special Branch had previously monitored.

The SDS recruited young police officers to work as long-term informants but about a decade ago these plans ended in scandal after it was revealed that some officers had fathered children with young women inside the groups they were infiltrating. Hence the present inquiry.

‘Peter Collins’ was infiltrated into the WRP in 1974, and a year later (by an extraordinary Chestertonian irony) the WRP themselves asked ‘Collins’ to infiltrate the NF on their behalf!

For a year or so ‘Collins’ therefore reported to his SDS handlers both on the WRP and on the NF.

H&D has today obtained copies of SDS and Special Branch documents released by the Inquiry. Unlike the rather confused Guardian reporter who tried to make sense of the story earlier today, we have specialist knowledge of the people and factions concerned, and will in due course publish an analysis of what ‘Collins’ was reporting on during 1975-76: what he thought was happening in the NF, and what was actually happening.

By 1976 the SDS allegedly gave up on infiltrating the ‘far right’, because the longer-established security agencies – Special Branch and MI5 – already had sufficient sources of information on the racial nationalist movement.

Much of this Special Branch and MI5 information would have come from Jewish anti-fascist organisations: the Searchlight intelligence organisation run by Gerry Gable and Harry Bidney that had grown out of the violent 62 Group, and the more ‘establishment’ intelligence arm of the Board of Deputies of British Jews.

‘Peter Collins’ reported to the SDS on aspects of the 1975-6 split within the NF that spawned the National Party, and on the objectives of a small group of NF radicals who sought to use the NP split as part of a longer-term strategy for their own takeover of the movement on the back of a temporary alliance with conservative elements.

23 years after his death, Enoch Powell’s legacy haunts modern Britain

Enoch Powell was sacked from the Conservative shadow cabinet in 1968 for warning against Britain’s racial transformation.

23 years ago the political prophet Enoch Powell died, aged 85. Though he had been a prominent figure in British politics for decades, he remains best known for one speech, delivered on 20th April 1968 in Birmingham, and known almost immediately as the “rivers of blood” speech.

This is a slight misquotation, as Powell was quoting the Roman poet Virgil, whose Aeneid – an epic composed around 20 BC – described a prophecy delivered to Aeneas, the Trojan hero and legendary founder of Rome.

“As I look ahead, I am filled with foreboding; like the Roman, I seem to see ‘the River Tiber foaming with much blood’.”

In the light of last year’s ‘Black Lives Matter’ protests, the previous sentence of Powell’s speech is especially prophetic. After giving several examples of the terrible consequences of the multiracialism that was beginning to transform our country, Powell mentioned the Race Relations Act then passing through Parliament.

“Here is the means of showing that the immigrant communities can organise to consolidate their members, to agitate and campaign against their fellow citizens, and to overawe and dominate the rest with the legal weapons which the ignorant and the ill-informed have provided.”

Whether Britons will continue to be overawed and dominated – whether we will continue to tear down statues and uproot our heritage – remains to be seen. ‘Normal politics’ is set to resume late next month as candidates are nominated for local and regional elections in most of the UK, though under circumstances that will make campaigning difficult.

These will be the first opportunity for Britons in the privacy of the ballot box to give their reaction to the anti-White agenda – the truly deadly virus of our times – that has spread across the world since the death of career criminal George Floyd.

Do the British retain the spirit of resistance to national suicide that animated Enoch Powell?

Undercover policing of ‘extremists’: will we ever know the truth?

Police battle ‘anti-racist’ demonstrators during the Welling riot of 1993, when it now appears that undercover policemen were operating on both sides.

An official Undercover Policing Inquiry is under way in London, following a series of revelations about the Special Demonstration Squad (SDS), an undercover unit of Metropolitan Police officers that operated against various radical political groups and individuals from 1968 to 2008.

Today’s hearings focused on famous Marxist activist Tariq Ali, born to a wealthy family in what is now Pakistan, but mainly based in England since his student days. Undercover police and MI5 officers monitored Ali going back to 1965 when he was President of the Oxford Union. Most famous for organising protests against the Vietnam War, Ali was one of the leaders of the International Marxist Group (IMG).

In relation to Tariq Ali and other less well-known targets, it has become obvious that the SDS had long-term agents inside militant ‘anti-racist’ and ‘anti-fascist’ groups. For example one heavily-redacted Special Branch document released today gave nine pages of names of anti-NF demonstrators at a march in Southwark, South London, in March 1980.

The Inquiry will later discuss SDS infiltration of anti-BNP groups in the 1990s. Earlier press revelations have included interviews with an officer who infiltrated ‘Youth Against Racism in Europe’, a front for the Trotskyist group Militant Tendency, who held one of several violent protests against the BNP bookshop in Welling, SE London.

Some accounts have suggested that undercover Met officers were present both outside the bookshop among the demonstrators, and inside the bookshop among a small group of nationalists defending the premises.

So far just two such police infiltrators inside the BNP have been named. One used the name Alan ‘Nick’ Nicholson and was supposedly active in BNP circles during 1990 and 1991. The other used the name Darren Prowse and supposedly attempted to join the BNP in 2007 before his mission was aborted.

We expect to hear more as the Inquiry progresses about the SDS role in targeting both the far left and racial nationalists. However the Inquiry is likely to ignore or hush up suggestions that the authorities deliberately stirred up violence between ‘anti-racists’ and the BNP, as well as between nominally radical racial nationalist groups and the BNP during the 1990s.

Democracy dies in the nation that invented it

Golden Dawn supporters rally outside the Greek Parliament: the courts have now intervened to ban the party.

A Greek court has proscribed the nationalist party Golden Dawn as a ‘criminal organisation’. Six years ago Golden Dawn won more than half a million votes – 9.4% – and three MEPs in the European Parliamentary elections, but now it’s leader and founder Nikos Michaloliakos has been convicted of heading a criminal organisation, a felony that carries a maximum prison sentence of ten years.

According to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, Greek Jews celebrated the court’s verdict and seem to think that ‘holocaust denial’ by Mr Michaloliakos and some other leading members of the party is akin to terrorism.

Golden Dawn’s electoral breakthrough was in 2012 when it gained 21 MPs in the Greek Parliament. After years of relentless pressure both from prosecutors and from ‘antifascist’ violence – including several bomb attacks on party offices and the murder of two Golden Dawn activists in November 2013, shot dead by leftwing terrorists near party offices in northern Athens – the last eighteen MPs were defeated in 2019.

However in the 2019 European elections last summer Golden Dawn still polled 4.9% and elected two MEPs. The now-banned party also still has many elected local councillors.

It remains unclear whether Greek ‘democracy’ can survive this assault by the courts.

Changing face of Australia revealed in new Palace documents

Sir John Kerr (above right) with the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh

The well-financed republican campaign in Australia – whose backers include former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull and billionaire media magnate Rupert Murdoch – is busy propagandising today, after the release of hundreds of letters from the mid-1970s between the then Governor-General Sir John Kerr (the Queen’s representative in Australia) and Sir Martin Charteris, then the Queen’s Private Secretary.

Their objective has been to find a ‘smoking gun’ proving that Buckingham Palace had prior knowledge of Sir John Kerr’s decision to dismiss Australia’s left-wing prime minister Gough Whitlam during the 1975 constitutional crisis.

This morning’s release at the National Archives of Australia is a vast trove of documents, and the Whitlam saga is too complex to discuss in full here, but at first glance there are two aspects of immediate interest to H&D readers.

In June 1976 Sir John and Lady Kerr were confronted by a mob of 400 far-left demonstrators in Melbourne – mainly Maoist students and militant trade unionists – after the Governor-General and his wife had arrived for official celebrations of Commonwealth Day.

A brick smashed the front window of Sir John’s Rolls-Royce and one of his officials suffered facial cuts requiring hospital treatment.

Eric Butler, founder of the League of Rights, was a prominent pro-Monarchy campaigner and opponent of international communist subversion.

In his report to Buckingham Palace on the incident, Sir John mentioned that many others were rallying to his and the monarchy’s support:
“A very right-wing organisation has taken up my cause – the League of Rights. It is issuing great numbers of pamphlets and placing advertisements. The sort of things it is saying are true enough… Eric Butler who is the leader of the organisation is said to be racist and anti-semitic but these things are not stressed in his organisation. I enclose an ASIO [Australia’s MI5] report on his organisation. It is very pro-Monarchy. He may be cashing in on my position and The Queen’s visit.”

Other correspondence from the end of 1976 hints at Australia’s ethnic transformation.

Sir John wrote: “..a larger proportion of our population today is not of British extraction than was the case at the end of World War II. In 1947 98% were of British stock. By the 1971 census only 88% were so derived. …By far the majority of the non-British are Italians, Greeks, Yugoslavs and Germans. …Increasingly, but not yet significantly, we have Asians.”

The Governor-General warned the Palace that this pattern of immigration meant support for the monarchy could no longer be assumed as automatic.

However rather than Australia submitting to alien values, he believed that immigrants could be taught British-Australian values:
“…why they have come here is to benefit from our democratic and stable institutions which happen to include the Monarchy and our task for the future is to make it clear to them that in coming, and especially in becoming naturalised, they have bought a package deal which is, with the Monarchy, entrenched in our Constitution.”

This was only 40-odd years ago, but how times have changed!

Now Australians are required to grovel before the ‘culture’ of every immigrant. They must provide cheap accommodation and (in the Covid era) free food, while facing incessant complaints and demands for more.

Dare we say that perhaps the “racist and anti-semite” Eric Butler was correct?

Wisconsin liberal attacked by BLM mob

Calhoun’s statue removed on the order of Charleston city authorities

Overnight yet another historic American statue came down: this time the victim was former Vice-President John Calhoun (1782-1850) whose statue had stood in downtown Charleston, South Carolina since 1896.

Meanwhile in another state capital a thousand miles north of Charleston, a liberal state senator was attacked by ‘Black Lives Matter’ rioters in Madison, Wisconsin.

State Senator Tim Carpenter, a 60-year-old LGBT etc activist, was punched and kicked by the mob when he photographed them. The rioters had earlier destroyed another two statues, including one of an anti-slavery activist, Col. Hans Christian Heg.

Senator Carpenter might now realise that these riots are not ‘political’ in the normal, civilised sense of the word. His crime (and that of Col. Heg) was simply to be White.

The paradox of course is that many of the rioters are themselves White, but they are determined to destroy their civilisation in an orgy of self-hatred.

A predictable disaster: but don’t let it obscure the truth

This is how it should have been: British patriots including ex-servicemen celebrating victory over the anti-British mob – but our “own” side let them down.

Today’s counter-demonstration in Central London by “football lads” seeking to defend British heritage against the violent “Black Lives Matter” and “antifa” mobs, should have been a victory celebration.

The anti-British rabble had cancelled their own event, no doubt fearing they would come off worse in any confrontation with the “far right”. Late last night, even the most violent hard core of “London Antifa” gave up and advised their followers not to be in Whitehall today – causing some excellent disputes among their own side about lack of planning.

This was a moment calling for leadership and discipline. The “right-wing” demonstrators today should have been friendly and cooperative with the police. There should have been a couple of speeches celebrating victory and warning BLM and “antifa” that any further nonsense from them would again be confronted and defeated.

Then the troops could disperse, vowing to meet at a hostelry for further celebrations as soon as such venues reopen.

Unfortunately a large part of the so-called “far right'” has no leadership worthy of the name and no discipline, just as it has no ideological backbone. Though there were many hundreds of good, decent patriots in Whitehall today, they aren’t the ones who will be featured by the media.

A disciplined demonstration in Bristol today defending the Cenotaph, sadly let down by a section of the London demo: we aren’t going to publish photos of the scum who disgraced the patriotic cause today – but the mainstream media certainly will.

As was sadly predictable, a large percentage of the “demonstrators” supposedly on our “own” side were already incapably drunk before the event began, and like children were unable to control their bladders. Whitehall became an ocean of urine, and one so-called “patriot” was photographed micturating against the memorial to murdered police officer Keith Palmer, killed by a terrorist in 2017.

In other words an absolute gift to our anti-British media, who can now conveniently forget the bigger picture and report on the “far right” literally p*****g on our heritage.

Our disgust at this pathetic display shouldn’t however blind us to the bigger picture. Once this weekend’s headlines have faded, we shall still be confronted by alien mobs determined to tear down monuments across our country and across the White world, so as to impose their own fake history and their own multiracial nightmare.

And once their understandable disgust at the lagered-up yobs purporting to represent Britain has faded, our fellow countrymen will still be on our side rather than on the side of the culture-distorters and the nation-wreckers.

The challenge will be how to mobilise that support. It should now be clear that the likes of “Tommy Robinson” and Paul Golding have nothing to offer the nationalist movement that will rise in post-Corona Britain.

British History Matters

A local resident defending the Baden-Powell statue in Poole, Dorset

The assault on British history continues, with Lord Baden-Powell (founder of the Boy Scouts and Girl Guides) the latest target. Locals in Poole, Dorset, rallied in defence of the Baden-Powell statue, and the local council announced temporary plans to remove it from the quayside to prevent vandalism.

The scouting movement began on Brownlea Island in Poole Harbour, but its founder is now accused of that most heinous crime – “racism”.

It seems that every aspect of British history is now to be judged in relation either to slavery or the “White supremacism” of the British Empire – in which (by the way) slavery was abolished in 1807, fifty years before Baden-Powell’s birth.

Sir Francis Drake’s statue in Tavistock, Devon, was the latest target

A further prime target (a hundred miles along the Channel coast from Poole) is Sir Francis Drake’s statue on Plymouth Hoe (as well as another Drake statue in his nearby birthplace of Tavistock). Drake was the second man to circumnavigate the Earth – and the first to command such a voyage from start to finish. En route he piratically raided Spanish galleons, and on his return to Plymouth in 1580 handed half his booty to the Crown.

This loot amounted to more than the rest of Queen Elizabeth’s income for the entire year!

Drake is not being belatedly held to account for piracy. Rather his sin is to have been tangentially involved in the slave trade. Together with his cousin and fellow privateer Sir John Hawkins, Drake is believed to have been the first British slave trader – but slaves were simply one of many commodities that Drake and Hawkins stole from the Portuguese when attacking their ships off the African coast.

In fact Drake was just as likely to employ slaves who had escaped the Spanish as he was to trade in them: in the context of Drake’s life and times, the slave trade was a very minor footnote indeed.

Yet in 2020 this is all that matters. Drake’s crowning achievement – the defeat of the Spanish Armada in 1588 – is now held of little account compared to the fact that in his youth he captured some slaves (as part of other cargo) and sold them on. Our entire history – in common with the history of every other White nation – is to be reduced to our relationship with Blacks and other minorities: a relationship in which we White Europeans must now be subservient.

Even as symbols of British history are torn down, the government promotes plans for a gigantic ‘Holocaust’ memorial in Westminster

The whole charade is rooted in the cult of Holocaustianity, where history is redefined in terms of victimhood. Women can be cast as eternal victims, so an entire historiography of female oppression spawns a profitable academic industry. Blacks are among the most useful victims for the rewriters and heritage-destroyers, who must however be careful to ignore the tendency for women to be victims of blacks, or blacks to be victims of other blacks.

But the fons et origo of the entire victim cult is the ‘Holocaust’, and Jews are history’s ultimate victims – the ultimate case in which we Whites must confess “we are all guilty”. (The phrase was popularised by the late Michael Wharton – aka Telegraph columnist Peter Simple – as the cry of his satirical ‘great social psychologist’ Dr Heinz Kiosk, but is now literally enforced as the worldwide White catechism.)

This ‘Holocaust’ cult’s pioneers are now, however, in danger of falling into their own trap, as some Blacks develop a new spin-off heresy – Blacks as victims of Jews!

2020’s iconoclasm might yet prove to be the start of White reawakening in defence of our heritage and in defence of historical truth: down with the Victim Cult of Historical Lies!

Back to Africa Day: 10th June

On this 80th anniversary of Marcus Garvey’s death, we commemorate his movement for a just repatriation of today’s uprooted descendants of past stolen slaves to their native African homeland.

What would Garvey have made of today’s ‘Black Lives Matter’ mob and their rabble of ‘antifa’ followers/inciters?

Surely BLM’s insistence on wiping out White European heritage in favour of a multiculti melting-pot is the polar opposite of Garvey’s ideas?

Perhaps Garvey would instead have supported next Saturday’s “Defend Our Memorials” initiative, organised by the Democratic Football Lads Alliance and Veterans Against Terror?
