JUSTICE – The Paris prosecutor’s office said Friday, June 18, that it had opened an investigation into an ex-general, Dominique Delawarde, signatory of the so-called “generals” platform, accused of having made anti-Semitic comments on CNews.
“The Paris prosecutor’s office today opened an investigation into the heads of public defamation and incitement to hatred and violence on the grounds of origin or belonging to an ethnic group, nation, race or religion”, he announced to AFP.
The investigation was entrusted to the Brigade for the repression of delinquency in persons (BRDP).
In November 2020, commenting on a blog on the results of the American presidential election, Dominique Delawarde had endorsed “the hypothesis of a major fraud”, adding: “There are, in my eyes, too many concordant clues for allow the Western ‘media pack’, of which we know who controls it, to convince me otherwise ”.
This Friday, on Cnews, the communicator Claude Posternak asked him “who controls” this “pack”, in the video extract to see below.
Retired since the mid-2010s, the general smiles: “You know very well who controls the media pack in the world and in France”.
“We can’t let it be said on the air”
“Who controls the Washington Post, the New York Times, with us BFMTV and all the newspapers which come to group around, who are these people…? ”, pretends to wonder the ex-soldier.
“Who?” Insists Claude Posternak.
“This is the community that you know well”, replies Dominique Delawarde.
“We are not going to leave on that, we will stop there my general, I’m sorry,” immediately cut the host of the show, Jean-Marc Morandini. “We can’t let it say that on the air, I’m sorry, we cut, we take away the general,” he said.
