The French writer had previously been convicted of inciting racial hatred in 2014. The author of the Le Grand Remplacement, describing the colonization of France (and more generally of Europe) by Islamic migrants, is no stranger to controversy.
Italian weekly La Verità reported that he was given a suspended sentence of two months and told to pay two anti-racist associations which were civil parties to the case – SOS Racisme and Licra – a hefty sum of money.
The judges found him guilty of “public incitement to hatred or violence by reason of origin, ethnicity, nation, race or religion through words, writings, images or public media by electronic means”.
The magistrates of the court of Auch cited the French intellectual’s speech delivered on 9 November 2017 in Colombey-les-deux Eglises, for the Conseil national de la résistance européenne, which Camus himself had shared on social networks.
“Immigration has become an invasion. The irreversible colonization is the demographic colonization, through the replacement of the population”.
He added: “Ethnic replacement, the Great Replacement, has been the most important event in the history of our country since it existed, since with other people the history, if it continues, will no longer be that of France.”
There are no French jihadists, he stressed, and “if they are jihadists they are not French”. What is needed is a National Council of Resistance, of European Resistance, because all European nations are invited to lead the struggle,” he said at the time.
Note that, despite his theories, Camus has kept his distance from Rudyard Kipling’s concept of the “white man’s burden” and the consideration that the white man is superior.
He said no one would find a word on racism in any of his books. He has neither been approached by so-called white supremacists: “I have nothing to do with them. They, on the other hand, have something to do with me, because, like me, they protest against the great replacement. But I disapprove of them, especially when they become terrorists.”
He concluded: “I am absolutely non-violent.”
