Ok..translated it was not clear. I know people with Nordic Tattoos who like the Nordic Viking thing. Neo Nazis do use certain Tattoos.

Yep. Unfortunately, there's a lot of symbols that have been hijacked by extremists. Hell, even the fleur-de-lis supposedly has extremist connotations in France; over here, it's seen as regional/cultural pride thing. They're a very common tattoo from Mobile to Laffayette. Kind of glad I never got one; not sure how the French would view it.

Thoroughly agree in regards to the Union Jack or St George's cross. I mean, the Klan uses the US flag,too, but that doesn't mean that it should be banned or that any one who flies it likes to burn crosses on their free time.

But the Fleur-de-lys hasn't flown over France since 1830 at the latest, and as LPC confirmed, it's considered an extremist symbol over there. Which makes sense; in France, it was always associated with the monarchy, not the people.

It's weird, in a way, that over here, the FdL has morphed into a symbol of the French people/French heritage. And they're everywhere in Louisiana and coastal Mississippi or Alabama... Particularly in New Orleans. Take a stroll down the ol' Rue Bourbon and they've got more Royal French flags than an Action Francaise rally:

Over here, it's cool. Over there, maybe not. Especially if I got pegged by the gestapo as a possible right winger for bringing my happy a$s over to Aubagne sporting, of all things, a big f*ck off Fleur-de-lys tat.

That... makes a certain sense.

The Uni I attended has an exchange program with a Catholic University in the Vendée. Every spring, we'd get a few students from that school for a semester. I had classes with some of them; others I met because I minored in French, and the French students were occasionally invited to our classes, conversation tables, and French club meetings.

When you could get anything out of them about politics, their opinions were usually surprisingly conservative. Well, except for one chick who, upon being asked which US President had the greatest influence on American history replied "Obama". (Who was in office at the the time). Gorgeous hazel eyes, but a hazel nut for a brain, that one.

Then there was 'Hurricane' Hugo, who nearly had to be deported.

Other than that, though, those kids tended to be pretty right-wing and religious.

I remember when I was on a social Media site on an Ex British Army site(was a couple of brits Ex Legion on their too) & one guy had a Flag Pole in his garden with the Union Jack... The Local Council told him to take it down...he refused. I can remember in School the janitors put the Union Jack up & you had to show respect. Was a recent Video of a guy getting kicked out a boxing Match for wearing a Union Jack waistcoat. Notice the pakistani ??.. Members of the security who seemed to be offended

And here is the article: Nîmes : ex légionnaires condamnés pour violences racistes

https://www.midilibre.fr/2019/01/18/nimes-legionnaires-juges-pour-violences-racistes,7960415.php
Really can't get clear what happened here? So there is 5 attackers behind some racist attacks occurred 7 y ago? One person is stabbed.

How many from this 5 attackers were legionaries (it says principalement des légionnaires ) and for how long they served?

So they in one night go around town and multiple times attacked persons of color just for being black or light brown?If that is case, they are idiots and shouldn't be in prison.

Unrelated to a case, but in those days is really easy to be accused for racist attack. If you get in verbal or physical dispute with person of color and you mention anything in correlation with that person's race, nationality or religion you can easily get accused for racist attack. Which is nonsense. Racist attack is if you deliberately target some person based on some of those 3 categories.

If you have that luck that judge is ultra neo-liberal-leftists-crapist, you can be convicted for racist attack just for having regular fight with person from one of mentioned categories.
Of Course Muslims doing same kind of racist attacks or rarely judged and public "elite" always finding excuses for those types of behaviors and even try to turn blame on white Christian (or atheist) men (or women) usually with straight sexual orientation.

It would be interesting to see the percentage of a yearly intake and how many complete their 5 or continue. I'm sure that COMLE has the numbers.

La Legion etrangere a perdu l'un des siens

Le 9 janvier, la 13e DBLE (demi-brigade de Légion étrangère) rendait les honneurs militaires au caporal-chef Michel Biega, décédé le 28 décembre 2018, à La Cavalerie, à l’âge de 57 ans et plus de 28 ans de service à la Légion étrangère, au 2e REI, au 3e REI et au 1er RE notamment, ainsi bien sûr qu’à la 13e DBLE. Ses camarades étaient présents, ainsi que de nombreux Cavalériens, dont le maire François Rodriguez et des élus municipaux, pour lui rendre un dernier hommage.

Le caporal-chef Biega était l’un des premiers légionnaires arrivés sur le plateau du Larzac pour lancer l’installation de la Phalange magnifique. Dès le mois de janvier 2016, il était à la tâche pour participer à la montée en puissance du régiment, la dernière mission qu’il a menée avec sa bonne humeur coutumière et son dévouement discret.

Passé par de nombreuses unités Légion, il a été inhumé près de son dernier régiment, selon ses dernières volontés. Il repose désormais en terre aveyronnaise et sur ce plateau du Larzac qu’il avait appris à aimer. Il a rejoint le cimetière de La Cavalerie, village où il s’était fait beaucoup d’amis, en attendant le futur Carré légion que la municipalité va créer en liaison avec le régiment.

RIP l'ancien.
