France’s LGBT movement has fully joined the neo-Marxist Woke Revolution

LGBT pride marches in France are growing more radical with calls for burning police officers, segregating White people, and putting heterosexual people in cages

One characteristic of the LGBT movement all over the Western World is that it will never be satisfied. This maxim is all too visible in France with the appearance of a so-called Radical Pride group, which marched on June 19 in Paris. As the weekly Valeurs Actuelles denounced that day, the group advertised slogans on social media calling for the police to be burned alive (“100, 200, 300 degrees! That’s the right temperature to burn the cops.”) and for heterosexual people to be kept in zoo cages (“Straight people to the zoo, free the animals!”).

This Radical Pride march, which is an even more radical version of the classic Pride Marches, was organized by 19 organizations that wanted an “anti-racist and anti-imperialist” demonstration “for the rights of migrants.”

As with the previous declensions of Marxist ideologies, the current revolution is already devouring its children even before it has come to an end. These Bolsheviks of the neo-Marxist revolution reproach the Mensheviks of the Pride March with claims they participate in “pink washing” by backing numerous companies that show their support for the demands of the LGBT lobby, and also by welcoming LGBT associations of policemen and Air France, the company whose planes are used to expel migrants. The Radical Pride’s organizers are determined to “re-politicize LGBTQIA+ identities.”

Concerning the French LGBT movement’s internal struggle, the organizers of Radical Pride also reproach the Pride Marches for defending a “homonationalist” line, that is to say, for using the defense of LGBT+ rights by the West to justify an imperialist policy towards countries considered less tolerant on these issues.

Even the editor-in-chief of the LGBT magazine Têtu took offense at the methods of Radical Pride, particularly with regard to its attitude toward media representatives who were ordered to attend a press briefing “to assure (…) that (they) will respect the consent of the demonstrators and the precautions of the various identities represented.”

This year was the second edition of Radical Pride, the radical wing of an LGBT+ movement whose fondness for social engineering is often identified as a strain of neo-Marxism in the countries of Eastern Europe that still remember old-style Marxism.

“We, LGBTQIA+ people with diverse identities and from different communities, launched the Radical Pride movement last year,” the organizers explain. “Last year, we were nearly 30,000 LGBTQIA+ people and allies expressing our anti-racist and anti-capitalist values in the streets. In view of the current political context, this year we have chosen to put forward our anti-racist and anti-imperialist demands for the rights of migrants. ”

One of the criticisms of the associations organizing Radical Pride, as explained at Radical Pride 2021 by a representative of the association Diivines LGBTQI+, is the fact that the Inter-LGBT organization (which organizes the Pride Marches) “is almost entirely white.”

The reality is that this kind of racialist approach is not absent from the more “moderate” Gay Pride Marches either. One such instance was the Pride March that took place in Lyon, the country’s second-largest city after Paris, on June 11. For the second year in a row,  it was organized in a “non-mixed” mode, which means it was racially segregated, just like the meeting Frances’s new education minister, Pap Ndiaye, once attended and from which White people were banned. In this year’s Pride March in Lyon, the front procession was reserved for “racialized” (meaning non-White) queers. 

According to the group “Fiertés en Lutte,” which organizes the Pride March in Lyon, “this allows us to avoid certain problems linked to the presence of people who are not concerned and who would be located in these spaces: the invalidation of lived experiences, the monopolization of speech, intrusive remarks and judgments, practices not adapted to the needs of the persons concerned, etc.”

In their message announcing the apartheid regime by race and sexuality planned for the Lyon Pride March, the group also explained that “even if you feel that you are benevolent and deconstructed on certain subjects, there is a need on the part of the people concerned to have reserved spaces to feel free to speak, to organize actions, to demand rights. Moreover, oppressive behavior is not necessarily voluntary and conscious. When one is in a position of privilege, one does not perceive the world in the same way. ”

Based on the logic of the Pride March, if you are White, you are perceived to be automatically in a position of privilege and must therefore remain at the back of the procession. To most people, this fully satisfies the definition of racism, but not in the eyes of the organizers or of the French authorities, apparently.

It is also worth mentioning that in Lyon, as in other cities in France where these types of LGBT marches took place, some demonstrators were attacked by individuals “of North African type.” For example, at the Radical Pride in Paris, activists wearing “I am Mila” T-shirts were also attacked by other LGBT activists of North African origin. And France was not alone, as “men of southern origin” were also blamed for brutal attacks on LGBT marchers in the German city of Karlsruhe.

However, such attacks do not discourage Radical Pride participants from engaging wholeheartedly in blanket support for Islam. Among the speeches on June 19 in Paris, a group “bringing together people from the North African diaspora” known as Nta Rajel defended the right of Muslim women to wear the veil and protested against the dissolution of Islamist organizations.

“Femonationalism and homonationalism serve as an excuse for activists not concerned with anti-racist issues, who prefer to look elsewhere rather than see the reality of what is happening today in France,” explained the representatives of this North African LGBT collective who claimed Emmanuel Macron and his successive governments implemented “fascist” policies. “We, queer and Muslim people, exist and find ourselves at the intersection of all these struggles. (…) We are against the closure and dissolution (for radical Islamism, ed.) of mosques, associations, collectives, and groups organizing aid between Muslims. We are fighting for the dissolution of the neo-colonial, ableist, sexist, and transphobic police and judicial system in place.”

Also in Dijon, the capital of Burgundy, the organizers of the Pride March there (not Radical Pride) denounced “White gay liberalism,” as they believe that “the hetero-patriarchal cis-tem must fall.”

During what has become known in the West as the “LGBTQI+ Pride Month,” such marches were held throughout France, including, for the second time, at Disneyland Paris. This latest LGBT event has been particularly criticized by conservative associations, including the Manif Pour Tous, the organization behind the large demonstrations against the introduction of “gay marriage” in 2012-13. It has protested against the fact that “an amusement park that carries a great aura allows itself to play politics” despite “children (coming) there to dream and not to be subjected to propaganda.”

Last year on Remix News, we wrote about Islamo-leftism and decolonialism as the two facets of the Woke Wave in France. In fact, it would be appropriate to speak of Islamo-leftism, decolonialism, and LGBTism as the three facets of the neo-Marxist Woke Revolution in France — a revolution that has the support of powerful liberal politicians. This could be seen with the presence at the Paris Pride March on June 25 of a float from the Renew Europe group of the European Parliament, which is the group where Emmanuel Macron’s MEPs sit. It is no coincidence that Macron’s minister for european affairs is the LGBT activist Clément Beaune, who has made “LGBT rights” in Poland and Hungary one of his main battles in Brussels.
