White Supremacist Jared Taylor Speaks to 700 Nationalists in France

Jared Tay­lor speaks to white nation­al­ists in France

Jared Tay­lor, who heads Amer­i­can Renais­sance, a Virginia-based online white suprema­cist jour­nal, spoke to about 700 white nation­al­ists in France on March 10, 2012, about pre­serv­ing  French iden­tity and com­bat­ing third world immi­gra­tion to that coun­try. Accord­ing to Tay­lor, the meet­ing was spon­sored by the French nation­al­ist group Nation­al­ity, Iden­tity, Cit­i­zen­ship (NCI) to “oppose cur­rent pro­pos­als to let for­eign­ers from non-European coun­tries vote in local elec­tions.” 

The con­fer­ence included politi­cians, authors, and aca­d­e­mics. The themes touched upon by speak­ers at the con­fer­ence included many of the same issues that white suprema­cists and racists in the United States focus on today—the preser­va­tion of white, Euro­pean iden­tity in the face of a grow­ing mul­ti­cul­tural soci­ety. Some of the speak­ers at the con­fer­ence in France also attacked Islam as a threat to French society.
Tay­lor told those gath­ered at the con­fer­ence that their fight to pre­serve French iden­tity was sig­nif­i­cant for peo­ple of white Euro­pean descent all over the world. He warned his French coun­ter­parts to “not make the ter­ri­ble mis­takes that we have made in Amer­ica.” Tay­lor added, “Avoid at all costs the cult of diversity.”
In addi­tion to Tay­lor, Filip DeWin­ter, the head of the racist and xeno­pho­bic Bel­gian nation­al­ist group Vlaams Belang, spoke about the fight against mul­ti­cul­tur­al­ism.  Accord­ing to Tay­lor, DeWin­ter asserted that “mul­ti­cul­tur­al­ism attacks our resis­tance against assaults on our iden­tity, our civ­i­liza­tion, our cul­ture, and our exis­tence as a people.”
In 2007, DeWin­ter vis­ited the United States and met with Pat Buchanan and other racists. In 2011, he spoke at a meet­ing in the United States hosted by Amer­i­can Renaissance.
