Paris Mayor Opposes Racist Soup

Last week, the Paris police issued a prohibition on the distribution to the homeless of soup containing pork meat or fat. According to the police authorities – the same ones who are incapable of restoring law and order in the Paris suburbs – distributing soup containing pork or lard is a racist offence since some people in need might be Muslim and hence not allowed to eat pork. Yesterday, however, an administrative court of first instance in Paris ruled that distributing pork soup is not racist. Today Bertrand Delanoë, the Mayor of Paris, told the Paris police to appeal the court ruling.

Pork has been on the European menu since time immemorial. In the winter of 2004 Solidarité des Français (SdF), a charity organization running a soup kitchen, began to distribute “soupe au cochon” (pork soup). SdF is a private organization and is said to be closely allied with “islamophobic” groups. According to critics it put pork soup on the menu to exclude Muslims. The organization says that the soup is a traditional French recipe with origins dating back to Gallic times. Even Asterix and Obelix ate pork soup.

On 28 December the Paris police prefecture issued a prohibition on the distribution of the soup, denouncing the “xenophobic character of a charity that excludes people of Jewish and Muslim confessions.” Paris police officers had to enforce the prohibition. This time the policemen did not need to enter certain Paris suburbs because the ruling sharia authorities in those no-go areas ensure that no pork soup is served there.

Yesterday’s court ruling, which again allowed the serving of pork soup, was criticized by Bertrand Delanoë. The Paris mayor said he was “astonished” to learn that the court tolerates an initiative which “knowingly excludes Jews and Muslims.” “Confronted with this xenophobic initiative, I want to express again that the city denounces and opposes every form of discrimination, racism and anti-Semitism,” the mayor said. He asked the police prefecture to appeal the verdict.

Frédéric Pichon, the lawyer of SdF said: “There has never been any discrimination. No-one has been denied the offer of soup on the basis of his clothes, appearance, religion or race.”

Mayor Delanoë is a Socialist and an outspoken homosexual. Religious Muslims oppose homosexuality at least as much as they oppose pork soup. If the mayor considers it a racist hate crime for a private organization to offer the homeless pork soup when some of the homeless might be Muslims, he may ponder the question whether it is not a racist hate crime for a city to have a gay mayor when some of the city’s citizens are Muslims.

As Molière said: “Je vis de bonne soupe et non de beau langage” (I live on good soup, not on fine words).


Victory for Pigs: France Prohibits Soup, 8 January 2007 

Two problems

First, who is the French government to tell anybody whom they may help. Secondly, if the French are so scared of people being disorderly because they can't eat free soup, then the game is already lost.



It is simply about choice. Public institutions that serve food should have menu items for vegetarians and also ones that conform (minimally) to Muslims, Jews, and others whose religious beliefs have specific dietary requirements. Otherwise, it is up to the individual to inquire whether or not pork is in the food. Certainly, pork is not a health risk and does not need labelling in the same way that genetically modified food and irradiated produce do.


I was going to help an old lady across the street over the weekend, but had a sudden pang of guilt over such a discriminatory act - her being just an old white chick and all - and changed my mind so as not to ruffle any feathers. She got hit by a bus.... Oh well, as the French say - C'EST LA VIE !!!!

Of course, this is just the next step...

in forcing ALL food providers in France to make sure their menus meet halal requirements.

If the mayor wins, and pork soup is off the menu for the homeless, then why should any outlet be allowed to serve pork or any other food that is non-halal.

Pork Soup

The pork soup seems to be a provocative publicity stunt organized by a group of people who try to defend European identity against muslim immigration. I think it is a good way to encourage European ethnic solidarity. By helping dismantle traditional society, immigration contributes to the number of alcoholic people living on the street. Street bums are mainly Europeans. We are asked to feel compassion for the poor immigrants who face so much hardship in Europe, while slowly replacing us. But our priority should be our own people. If muslims are allowed to show support for their fellow muslims, Europeans should be allowed to do the same with their own kind.

The mayor of Paris is a hopeless case. In 2002, he was stabbed by a man named Azedine Berkane who said he did not like socialist politicians and homosexuals. But we were told that the cause of the attack was mental illness. As if it had nothing to do with muslim immigration. In the same year, the mayor named Mumia Abu-Jamal an honorary citizen of the city of Paris. He was taking a stand against death penalty in the US. Even if the mayor of Paris gets stabbed a few more times, I think he will keep denying that third-world immigration is a problem.

Chief Officer of Municipal Authority Sought: Must hate the West

Bertrand Delanoe sounds like just another socialist mayor acting true to form - in cahoots with radical Islam. Ken Livingstone, Mayor of London, is a master of the genre. Obviously one has to be willing and able to engage in the undermining of your own civilisation to hold mayoral office in Europe these days.
