French Nationalist Party

Profile: French Nationalist Party

1- Name of NGO:

French Nationalist Party

2- Brief & Mission:

Nationalist parties often prioritize the protection of their nation’s cultural identity and heritage. French nationalist parties express concerns about the perceived influence of Islam in their country and advocate for stricter immigration policies or the preservation of their own cultural practices. The French Nationalist Party (PNF) is a far-right, neo-fascist political movement established in 1983 by former National Front (FN) members, including former Waffen-SS members like Pierre Bousquet, Jean Castrillo, and Henri Simon, around the magazine Militant. Inactive after the early 1990s, it was reactivated in 2015 following the dissolution of the néo-Pétainist movement L’Œuvre Française by the French authorities in 2013. Far-right militant Yvan Benedetti serves as its current spokesman.

3- Bias, Agenda & Motivation:

The PNF’s ideology is based on French nationalism, anti-immigration, and opposition to Islam. The party has been accused of racism, xenophobia, and anti-Semitism. In 2015, the PNF was banned from participating in the French presidential election due to its extremist views. Their aim was to “organize French nationalists and legally diffuse their doctrine”, but the racist ideology of a “white Europe from Brest to Vladivostok” failed to convince the public.

4- Links to Governments/Political Agenda:

The PNF’s links to governments and political agendas are unclear. The party has been accused of receiving funding from foreign governments, but there is no evidence to support these claims. The PNF has also been accused of having ties to the French far-right, but the party has denied these allegations.

5- Sources of Funding:

The PNF’s sources of funding are also unclear. The party does not disclose its financial information, and there is no evidence to suggest that it receives any government funding. The PNF is believed to be funded by private donations, but the identity of its donors is unknown.

6- Activities:

The PNF has been classified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The SPLC defines hate groups as “extremist organizations that attack individuals or groups on the basis of race, religion, ethnicity, national origin, sexual orientation, or gender identity.” The PNF has been involved in a number of controversies related to Islamophobia. In 2015, the PNF organized a protest against the construction of a mosque in Marseille. The protest turned violent, and several people were injured. The PNF has also been accused of spreading anti-Muslim propaganda. The party has published a number of articles and videos that portray Muslims in a negative light.

7- NGO Leadership:

Pauty was the leader and first president of the Parti Nationaliste Français (PNF). The organization was established in December 1983 by Pierre Bousquet, Jean Castrillo, Henri Simon (the three of them were former Waffen-SS Charlemagne members), Pierre Pauty, André Delaporte, Patrice Chabaille, Alain Renault. All of them, except Simon, were former National Front (FN) members who had split off from the party in 1980 after dismissing it as becoming “too conservative” and “too Zionist” following the death of François Duprat in 1978.
