French Green leader calls for the suicide of France

According to the co-founder of the French Green Party, white European families should no longer receive state benefits to encourage them to have less or no children. Muslim migrants should receive child support instead, he argued.

    In an interview with left-wing French newspaper Le Nouvel Observateur, Yves Cochet co-founder the French Green Party and currently an elected member of the European Parliament, called for the demographic suicide of the native French population.

    “I suggest reversing our policy that encourages births, by inverting the logic of benefits payments for families. The more children you have, the fewer benefits you receive to the point of disappearing entirely after the third birth!” he declared.

    “When we accept being ‘Neo-Malthusians,’ we are quickly accused of racism and elitism. For that reason therefore, I make it clear that I am not targeting the poorest countries, which produce more children than others,” Cochet added.

    “On the contrary. The rich countries, like France, are the first that need to decrease demographically. They are the ones with the most polluting lifestyles. Most of all, limiting our births would allow us to better receive the Muslim migrants who are knocking at our doors,” he said.

    France’s Muslim population has already grown to almost 9 percent. According to Cochet, to reduce the number of inhabitants on Earth, “it is necessary to make fewer children” in rich countries.

    Cochet’s radical solutions was proposed “to save the planet facing climate change”, thus limiting the ecological impact of rich nations.

    Yves Cochet’s calls are similar to that of the German Green Party leader, Stefanie von Berg, who during a speech in front of the German parliament celebrated the fact that Germans would be an ethnic minority within major cities in 30 years, commenting that this was “a good thing” because it would upset conservatives.

    “This vision of some on the left is that of the organised suicide of a civilization,” said Eric Ciotti, a member of the National Assembly of France, and a member of The Republicans. Ciotti blasted Cochet on Twitter for his “delirious remarks”.

    It must be noted that Cochet’s remarks were published in a serious newspaper. Cochet, a former minister and MP, is currently president of a think tank called Momentum. In short, he is someone “important”, but above all, someone also spreading falsehoods.

    According to Cochet: “There was a time when medals of honor of the French family were distributed to large families.” Yet, the medal still exists. On the website – updated last May – it states: “The medal of the family rewards those who have raised many children with dignity.”

    In Italy Matteo Salvini has increased welfare payments to prospective parents in order to encourage their population to have more children.
