Marion Marechal: 'I Don’t Have to Apologize' for Being White to Activists Who 'Spit on Our History'

As race riots, violence, and looting rages across the first world and left-wing activists push for the desecration of national monuments, one French politician made a bold response to the “protests” on Facebook.

“Like many French people, I refuse to ‘put a knee down’ and will not let my country become the ground of ‘anti-racism’ militants,” Marechal wrote in the caption of a video posted to social media Wednesday, which was translated by Voice of Europe.

Marion Marechal, the niece of French nationalist politician Marine Le Pen, posted a video to social media Wednesday in which she stated, “I don’t have to apologize as a white person and a French one.”

“I don’t have to apologize because I didn’t colonize anyone,” Marechal continued, adding, “I didn’t enslave anyone in the same way that all these political groups and political activists were never colonized or enslaved themselves.”

Marechal said left-wing agitators “defile the memory of our ancestors, spit on our history, purify our heritage and break down our statues,” describing a scene which has become all commonplace throughout the Western world.

The destruction of statues has become so integral to the ideology of left-wing activist groups that, in one case in the United Kingdom, Black Lives Matter agitators called for the removal of a statue despite having no idea who the person was.

Via National File:

The interviewer asks the men, “Do you support tearing down the [Cecil Rhodes] statue?”

“Yeah,” one of the men replies, to which the interviewer continues, “Why are you against it?”

Hesitating, the man answers, “To be honest, I don’t actually know who he is.”

Rhodes was a 19th century statesman who sought to expand British rule throughout the world, with eyes set on reclaiming the lost American colonies, reuniting South Africa under British rule, and eventually became Prime Minister of Cape County. In his will, he created the Rhodes Scholarship at Oxford.
