Robert Faurisson : un homme intrépide et indomptable
au milieu des lâches
(Check this version for the photographs.)
THE LAST MOMENTS of his life here below, Robert Faurisson has been confronted with adversity. And violent, constant, brutal
adversity. On Saturday, October 20, he gave a lecture in English at a hotel in Shepperton, his hometown, with his disciple
Vincent Reynouard, exiled to England because of his revisionist struggle, the managers of the establishment, frightened,
paralyzed by telephone threats and social networks of groups and individuals claiming anti-racism, have tried everything
to interrupt the conference: burst into the room, order to leave the scene immediately, cut off electricity, tripping several
times a fire alarm ... The intrepid professor was faced for one last time with an unglamorous manifestation of human cowardice.
Robert Faurisson liked to repeat that what he had most met throughout his life, and particularly during his forty years
of active revisionist combat and incessant persecutions, and what had most marked him, he was the cowardice of men, including
and especially that of the good. Fear, he said, is the engine of history. It is the one
that explains the renunciations, the abdications, the ignominies, the betrayals, the desertions.

Robert Faurisson was not afraid. Not afraid to testify before hostile tribunals
where he excelled, telling with clarity and pedagogy hours during his revisionist works, his discoveries, his itinerary,
explaining, demonstrating, refuting.
Not afraid to give conferences where he
subjugated his audience by his ability to express himself without notes, by his brilliance, by the unstoppable character
of his demonstrations, by the relevance of his observations, by his formidable humor he said he came from his Scottish ancestry,
by his ability to make his audience laugh, even when he spoke of eminently serious things.
afraid to hold publicly for almost half a century positions that made him a plague, which made him lose his functions as
a professor at the university where he loved so much teaching on the grounds that one was unable to ensure his security,
not afraid of its tenacity, its invariance and its intransigence in its positions to be the privileged target of militias.
This is how he undergoes stoically a dozen physical aggressions. One, particularly serious, in a public
park in Vichy in September 1989, just 29 years ago, left him half dead and he probably would not have survived if a passerby
had not then led (them) to the hospital.
An individual who, learning later
who he was, expressed his regret at having come to his aid! From this aggression claimed by the Sons of Jewish Memory the
indomitable Professor will keep his whole life from the aftereffects, which made him suffer terribly in the face until his
Isolated, indeed, it was, since very few were the personalities
to dare to attend it. Even Jean-Marie Le Pen, who was himself ostracized, never wanted to meet the professor to the point
that at our banquet in 2016 for the 65 years of RIVAROL we had to wait until the founder of the National Front quit the
room to bring in the Professor who, on this occasion, gave a magnificent lecture retracing in an hour and a half all the
genesis and history of his works and his struggle for historical truth, or rather for historical accuracy, to resume the
expression he liked to use.
Robert Faurisson nevertheless had consolation throughout
his forty years of hard fighting: Pierre Guillaume courageously edited it in the early 1980s (La Vieille Taupe), a part
of his family seconded him and helped him with unceasing devotion during these 40 years of persecution, he participated
in a conference on the Holocaust in Iran in December 2006, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad awarded him in 2012 a prize honoring
"courage, resistance, fighting spirit" and in December 2008 the comedian Dieudonne had him go on stage to the
Zenith to give him a prize for insolence and infrequency.
He was also able
to count on the dedication of Jean Plantin, who conscientiously edited his Revisionist writings, which constitute a wealth
of information and explanations unequaled, on the indefatigable Vincent Reynouard who, in his writings and in his videos,
continues in his own way his work and on the support and friendship of anonymous people with whom he did not hesitate to
correspond, to give of his time, even when he was at the end of his strength.
also knew betrayals, the most painful was probably that of Jean-Claude Pressac, his former disciple, which was funded by
the Klarsfeld to try to prove the existence of gas chambers. Las (?), eight years before dying in the general indifference,
Pressac, in a June 1995 interview with Valerie Igounet, qualifies the whole file of gas chambers "rotten" and
says that "the current form, yet triumphant, the presentation of the universe of the camps is condemned. What will we
save? Few things. "
NOTHING A priori did not destiny Robert Faurisson, this
brilliant university professor, this aggregate of letters to which one owes works of literary erudition as Do we have Lu
Rimbaud? Was Lautreamont readled (?) into what some have called the greatest intellectual adventure of the 20th century:
Nothing, except his great curiosity, his visceral
anticonformism and his deep sense of justice.
During the conference
he gave on April 9, 2016 for the 65 years of RIVAROL (and whose full text appeared in the Ecrits de Paris in May 2016, a
number always available at our offices for a few euros, as the will of the Professor published in RIVAROL of October 13
and 20, 2016), he explained that although he was very hostile to the German occupation during the war, he had been concerned,
from May 8, 1945, the date of the German surrender, to to lead, if not as a gentleman, at least as a gentleman, to the vanquished.
And it is this thirst for justice and truth that will lead him to be revolted by the horrors of Gaullo-communist cleansing
and to read Maurice Bardèche (Nuremberg or the Promised Land, 1948) and Paul Rassinier (The Lie of Ulysses , 1950)
who are the pioneers of historical revisionism.
Although Robert Faurisson was not
a believer, there was a Christic approach to his revisionist faith. Do not repeat about the history of the Second World
War vulgate exposes indeed to social death, isolation, misunderstanding and general hostility. Who has not touched revisionism
very much does not know what hate is, until what ends it can lead.
other revisionists, Robert Faurisson has always wanted a public debate with his opponents. This debate has always been refused.
He was only entitled to complaints in the courts for crimes against humanity, threats, insults and beatings.
It is enough to read the title of the despatches at the announcement of her death to understand that
the hate is always so active and that she knows no respite, no truce: "the death of a denialist, a forger of the history,
a falsifier, an anti-Semite. Jewish sites rejoice openly, loudly of his disappearance.
if they only have insults on their lips, it's because they have no argument.
dirty the man but are unable to answer his arguments, his interrogations, his technical objections, scientific. When one
witnessed Robert Faurisson's trials, the contrast was striking between a man who used rational arguments, who patiently
explained his approach, recounted his works, reported on his observations and conclusions, and the opponents who attacked
angrily. the man, who called him a compulsive anti-Semite and a violent denialist, who called for greater repression but
did not respond to any of his arguments. Like the 34 historians who, in Le Monde on February 21, 1979, could answer Faurisson
only this: "We must not ask ourselves how, technically, such a mass murder was possible. It was technically
possible since it took place. This is the starting point of any historical inquiry on this subject. This truth, it was up
to us to simply recall it: there is not, there can be no debate on the existence of gas chambers. "
It is by openly contesting the official and obligatory version of the Second World War, by refusing
to overwhelm the vanquished and to incense the victors, Robert Faurisson threatened powerful interests. Those of the State
of Israel and international Zionism whose power, durability, immunity and impunity are essentially based on Holocaust Dogma.
Those of the Allies and the sacrosanct crusade of the democracies against the Axis forces. Those of leftists of all hairs
for whom it is necessary that the nationalist regimes of the inter-war period in Europe are the absolute evil and not the
communism in all its forms, Leninist, Stalinist, Maoist, Trotskyist.
Not only did
Robert Faurisson, by his works and his famous 60-word sentence, uttered in 1980 at the microphone of Europe 1 in the face
of an exasperated Ivan Levaï, threatened the ideological foundations of the world order resulting from the
last war, but he challenged a true religion, or rather a counter-religion, holocaust worship. A cult that does
not suffer that one lacks deference and submission to its place. A (false) god who demands that we incessantly incense burn
before him, that we adore him, that we rekindle the flame like Yad Vashem, that we offer flowers and we lament as during
pilgrimages and processions in Auschwitz and elsewhere, one strikes one's chest and exclaims "never again".
The counter-religion of the Shoah taught from primary school and throughout life through television,
cinema, entertainment monkey indeed Catholic rituals with its cult of martyrs (the six million), saints ( the righteous
rewarded by the State of Israel), miraculas (survivors of the Shoah), stigmatized (the deportees with their number tattooed
on the arm), his pilgrimages and expiatory processions from Auschwitz to Struthof, his temples and cathedrals (Holocaust
museums, Holocaust memorial), alms to be absolved of his faults (ceaseless financial reparations for the State of Israel
and descendants of deportees), relics (teeth , the hair, the shoes of the deportees), his hagiography (the books of Elie
Wiesel, Primo Levi ...), his martyrologies (the walls and memorials identifying the identity and the surname of the victims),
his places of torture (the bedrooms homicidal gas), his tables of the law (the Declaration of Human Rights), his Gospel
(the judgment of the Nuremberg International Military Tribunal), his high priests and his pontiffs (Klarsfeld, Veil, Lanzmann
...), his inquisition (the courts of the Republic and dozens of states in the world having a repressive anti-revisionist
arsenal), its legislation against blasphemy (the law Fabius-Gayssot and its equivalent almost everywhere in the West), its
judges (the magistrates), its holy city (the Zionist entity), its archangels (Tsahal protecting the Eretz), its preachers
and its guardians (the teachers and all the leading bodies, be they political, media, religious, trade unions, associations
, sports, economic), its holy congregations (the World Jewish Congress, B'nai B'rith, CRIF, LICRA, UEJF, AIPAC ...), its
hell (all the nationalists, except the Israelis, the revisionists, the Catholics faithful to the doctrine of the new Israel,
the so-called theology of substitution), its faithful (almost all of humanity), its miscreants (the revisionists).
If it monkey the Christian religion, this counter-religion also constitutes its inversion: to love
it opposes hatred, in truth lies, to the forgiveness of offenses Talmudic vengeance, to the respect of the ancients stalking
the old, to the remission of sins the imprescriptibility of crimes, to the spirit of poverty the lure of gain, to humility
the will of domination, in the sense of sharing the spirit of profit, to charity blackmail, to respect from others, lynching,
to the silence of recollection, the noise of indictment, to the discretion of the domestic virtues the noise and fury of
the media, to the infinite justice of God the partiality of a tribunal of the victors judging the vanquished.
IRONIE of history, Robert Faurisson died returning home from his hometown in England
on October 21 evening, a victim of a violent heart attack. Now, four days later, the judges of Cusset were to render their
judgment in the so-called Struthof gas chamber case. On September 20, during his last trial, the Professor, although exhausted,
made a magistral defense which can be read in large extracts in our October 3 edition ("Struthof: the LICRA pursues
Faurisson"). At the end, the Professor struggled with extraordinary courage and determination which compelled admiration.
It is common to say that no one is irreplaceable. Well, yes. The death of this giant, of this
monument is an irreparable loss. We have not finished measuring how much he will miss. For how many men are there today
of his temper, his erudition, his talent, his bravery, his tenacity? And yet even without him the fight for historical truth
must continue. Whatever the hazards and difficulties of all kinds. Whatever the torments and the obstacles. Remains indeed
his example, remain his works. As long as there remain men who love justice and truth, refusing falsehood and deceit, then
nothing will be lost, everything will be possible.
