Xenophobic slogans and Nazi insults: the RN's new deviations create indignation

Thursday April 11, during a meeting of the regional council, elected officials from the National Rally of Burgundy-Franche-Comté held up signs bearing anti-immigrant messages. The president of the region's Socialist Party wants to file a complaint for "incitement to hatred".

“Foreign rapists out.” This message brandished by the elected representatives of the National Rally of Burgundy-Franche-Comté, Thursday April 11, during a plenary session of the Regional Council, is neither more nor less an “incitement to hatred” for the Socialist Party.

The action of far-right elected officials came after the placement in police custody of an activist from the “feminist identity” collective Némésis, who brandished this same message during the Besançon carnival on Sunday April 7, recalls BFMTV. On

“We must stop with these nauseating amalgams,” defended the socialist president, Marie-Guite Dufay. “The posters that were brandished and the repeated comments associating immigrants and rape are intolerable anywhere and even more so in a Republican enclosure,” she declared before announcing her intention to file a complaint.

Later, in a press release, the elected official also denounced the borrowing of Nazi vocabulary within the hemicycle, reports BFMTV. The elected representative of the RN Thomas Lutz admitted to having used the word "Untermensch", "sub-human" in German, to "qualify the status of the elected representatives of the opposition", and affirmed that he regretted this use "inadequate, inappropriate and very unfortunate.”
