French TV boss admits censoring riot coverage
Claire Cozens in Amsterdam
Thursday November 10, 2005
One of France's leading TV news executives has admitted censoring his coverage of the riots in the country for fear of encouraging support for far-right politicians.
"Politics in France is heading to the right and I don't want rightwing politicians back in second, or even first place because we showed burning cars on television," Mr Dassier told an audience of broadcasters at the News Xchange conference in Amsterdam today.
...he admitted his decision was partly motivated by a desire to avoid encouraging the resurgence of extreme rightwing views in France. http://media.guardian.co.uk/site/story/0,14173,1639538,00.html
Le Pen says these riots are only the start of problems he has predicted for a long time.
The French have been signing up for his party en masse!
"France is in a bad state, much worse than it seems. Our country is on the edge of a decline that could rapidly drive it to its disappearance. the French people, who are brainwashed by the media, donít even know it, although many of them have a fear about it.
"To avoid terrible hardship, the country must react as soon as possible. The truth must help this nation to rediscover and set off again in the 21st century on the glorious route which it had followed for centuries.
Without hate, but without fear, without remorse and without repentance, each of us must now act without building castles in the sky, while keeping our eyes fixed on the end of the furrow like our ancestors in order to do what needs to be done. When the hour of the battle arrives, you close ranks and go to battle, and as Joan of Arc said: 'God gives victory.'"
Jean-Marie Le Pen
With a 24-hour ban on rallies in Paris due to be lifted today, Mr. Le Pen, 77, has summoned "legitimately worried and fed-up French people" to assemble in Palais Royal square in the city center tomorrow evening.
Marine Le Pen, his 37-year-old youngest daughter and political heir, told the London Sunday Telegraph that her father, one of France's longest-serving politicians, had been vindicated.
"The Front National predicted and warned this violence would happen 20 years ago. It has been political madness for 30 years since we allowed immigrants to come here as cheap labor at the behest of French bosses," said Miss Le Pen, a mother of three, lawyer and member of the European Parliament.
"Five percent of those here legally have an employment contract, which means 95 percent are living at cost to the public purse. It is ruining our health system, our social security system and aggravating unemployment and social problems," she said.

Islam had better wake up.
Here in Oz since the raids on some twits by the A.F.P i have seen the worst side of the Islamic community.
Though i believe the charges have been inflated and the AFP will have a little egg on it's face...it would seem these idiots were bent on something though I doubt it would be a large scale bomb plot...more like a symbolic target.
Whatever, the point is, I have NOT seen the local Islamic community come out STRONGLY against these idiots. It is inevitable that tempers flare when seeing women and children slaughtered in Iraq but to then claim a moral right to do the same? And to the relatively innocent? That is the difference between Christianity and Islam...a faith I now believe to simply be a bunch of rules thought up by a dope smoking merchant. Many reasonable rules mind you but lacking in the spiritual...like Judaism.
Moderate Islam better come out swinging and clarify HEAVILY on it's position on things because I have personally run out of patience after defending this same community.
I am heading to the point of view that it's time to seriously consider sending people back to their countries of origen and also making open debate on seperating people from each other by letting the Muslims create their home states and then they can all move their.
I'm sick of the freakin Jews/Zionists and i'm sick of the idiot elements of Islam who are obviously pretty stupid.
I've heard it said that the Jew complains but unlike a normal man will not leave his job when angry. So too the Muslim. If you dont like this country...LEAVE!
I would never had said this only a few short weeks ago.
As for FRance...to see poor "alienated" Muslims wearing $200 runners and $200 jackets and other expensive street wear complaining about how hard they got it? Send 'em back to Algeria and see how tolerant their wonderful governments are.
The West has a lot to answer for. It still beats hands down the other idiots.
