Robert Faurisson : un homme
intrépide et indomptable au milieu des lâches
(Check this version for the photographs.)
UNTIL 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,

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.
Not 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.
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 death.
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.
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.
He 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: historical revisionism.
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
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.
Like 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.
But if they only have insults on their lips, it's because they have no argument.
They 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".
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.
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.
