At a major right-wing conference in France last weekend, former National Rally (RN) MP Marion Maréchal called on French people to resist the “Great Replacement”.
Maréchals comments came during a speech she gave at the “Convention of the Right” in Paris.
During her address, Maréchals told her supporters that the massive demographic changes that are currently taking place in France and Europe, often referred to as the Great Replacement, is a critical issue that right in France must address, Europe1 reports.
“The first major challenge, the most vital, is the great replacement, this demographic countdown, which already makes us realize the possibility of becoming a minority on the land of our ancestors,” Maréchal said.
The former populist MP then added that if Great Replacement were to continue it would produce a “multicultural society that wants to be fractured and violent”.
The idea of a Great Replacement, which asserts that mass migration and the idea of ‘replacement migration’ can only result in social and political disorder, was first put forward by the well-known French writer Renaud Camus.
For Camus, the Great Replacement has resulted primarily due to a belief held by elites which holds that interchangeability of everything can be very much applied to humans.
In the past, Camus has said that human beings were becoming “a product, a producer, and a consumer all at once, a thing, a number, not a human being”.
During her address, Maréchal also urged the crowd to set aside petty differences, to come together as a single united French right, and to “break down yesterday’s partisan barriers”.
Despite not having put herself on this list of potential National Rally candidates for the 2022 French Presidential elections, Maréchal stated: “Tomorrow, and I am deeply convinced about this, we will be in power.”
“After 40 years of mass migration, Islamic lobbies, and political correctness, France is in the process of passing from the eldest daughter of the Catholic Church to becoming the little niece of Islam. Terrorism is only the tip of the iceberg — this is not the France that our grandparents fought for,” she said.
Maréchals speech represents a major comeback for her within French politics. In 2017, she voluntary resigned as an MP to form the Institute of Social, Economic, and Political Sciences (ISSEP) in Lyon.
