    • @mad_meg je publie ici le texte originel de 1977 que j’ai moi même extrait (OCR + corrections manuelles) d’une source image vérifiée.
      Il me semble absolument nécessaire de vérifier par nous mêmes et de publier ce travail (qui est long).
      Par exemple, cette liste circule sans la signature de Renée Saurel, critique dramatique, omise de la plupart des recopies. D’autre part les activités qui y sont déclarées pour chacun·e ne sont jamais mentionnées correctement, pourtant c’est une base textuelle absolument nécessaire pour faire ensuite des recherches fiables.

      Merci de comprendre que je n’ajoute rien ici à cette liste puisqu’elle sert de point de départ et sera alimentée par la suite avec nos/tes annotations mais aussi des données biographiques, les relations, activités, dates, distinctions etc.

      https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Louis_Althusser

      Par exemple, on pourra noter qu’Althusser était en 1977 secrétaire général de l’ENS (rue d’ULM) (non noté sur WP) En 1980, lorsqu’il tue sa femme, Dominique Lecourt (signataire ci-dessus) fait parti de ses proches et devient son représentant légal.
      https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dominique_Lecourt

    • je déplace ici le post en rapport qui est un peu long (avec les images) et se trouvait initialement ici https://seenthis.net/messages/817814#message818144

      Sur le site de Dolto.fr on retrouve la pétition (mais c’est une lettre ouverte différente des termes employés sur LeMonde ?) ainsi qu’en colonne gauche une justification à …Minute et un article ou Catherine, sa fille défend ses positions (LeMonde 2001)


      http://www.dolto.fr/fd-code-penal-crp.html

    • Elle ratisse tellement large, cette pétition... La demande légitime d’une égalité d’âge de la majorité sexuelle pour les gays et les lesbiennes (accordée en 1981) mélangée avec de la liberté de prédation sexuelle sur les enfants. Confusionnisme des uns (cette extrême droite qui vomit Mai 68 mais s’en sert), effets de mode pour les autres, autant d’intellos qui ne voient pas le problème, c’est accablant.

    • (3 des signataires) Philippe Gavi, fondateur de libé, en #2009 à propos de Guattari
      à la sortie du livre de Franck Demules, la victime de Christian Hennion

      (Attention, évitez le forum)
      immedias2016.com/2009/05/viol_au_dessus_dun_nid_de_couc/

      La pression du milieu ambiant n’est pas une circonstance atténuante, pas plus qu’elle ne l’est pour un nazi, ou un khmer rouge. Rien, et encore moins le désir, n’atténue le crime du « tuteur » qui prend son pied avec l’enfant, ni celui du #psychanalyste qui fait l’amour avec ses patientes (je pense à mon ami Félix Guattari qui a laissé derrière lui une œuvre géniale et quelques suicides), ni celui de l’ancienne victime qui se fait tortionnaire. L’esprit 1968, c’est d’abord cela.

    • seenthisseuses et seenthisseurs, voici la liste des personnes pour lesquelles je vous sollicite

      pour la suite de l’enquête évoquée ici https://seenthis.net/messages/817814

      J’essaye de m’en tenir au noyau des signataires.
      La plupart des signataires des pétitions ont une page dédiée WP.
      La base se constitue avec un code de ma création qui récupère les noms, dates naissance/deces et texte d’introduction de WP. Y’a surement mieux du côté des outils de journalisme mais je ne connais pas ou n’y ai pas accès. En tout cas, pour ce que je cherche à faire, j’ai au moins besoin de connaitre leur âge.

      Evidemment je ne sniffe pas tout, mais un par un après avoir sourcé et fait les vérifications des correspondances d’identités. Sur 110 personnes, il reste environ 20 noms non vérifiés et datés.

      Par exemple, concernant la signataire Marie Rhonon (pétition du 27 janvier), ce ne serait pas Rhonon mais bien Thonon. Après recherche, personne ne semble exister sous le nom de Marie Rhonon. Sous Thonon, je trouve

      –> Dailymotion "Marie Thonon-Jacopin, entretien sur Yves Stourdzé"
      –> La page WP d’Yves Stourdzé (non signataire) signale qu’il intervient à Vincennes Paris VIII en 1979 et son lien avec Lyotard (signataire) et Deleuze (signataire) et avec Marie Thonon(signataire) ce qui me semble une correspondance correcte.

      Dès 1969 jusqu’en 1983 Yves Stourdzé enseigne à l’Université Paris IX Dauphine (1971-1982), en Sociologie des Organisations et dans le DESS (Diplôme d’études supérieures spécialisées) de Gestion ; il intervient à Vincennes Paris VIII (1970-1971) dans le cadre du séminaire « Cinéma & Société » et « Économie, Politique et Psychanalyse » sous la direction de Jean-François Lyotard et Gilles Deleuze.

      "Par ailleurs un grand nombre de ses articles et textes inédits ont été rassemblés dans l’ouvrage posthume « Pour une poignée d’électrons » mis en forme par Marie Thonon-Jacopin et Jean-François Blondeau-Patissier (Fayard, 1987)."

      Egalement sourcé avec https://www.univ-paris8.fr/IMG/pdf/programme-stourdze.pdf
      Marie THONON - JACOPIN, sociologue, collaboratrice d’Yves Stourdzé à partir de 1975

      Je m’intéresse donc aux ignoré·es de ces pétitions qui sont moins connu·es et pour lesquels la recherche est plus longue. Peu d’info sur les femmes, notamment les femmes de comme Fanny Deleuze, qui joue Tante Eva dans le film L’amant de Lady Chatterley d’après la 2e version de « L’amant de Lady Chatterley » de D.H. Lawrence éditions Gallimard qu’elle a elle même traduit.

      Daniel Guérin 1904-1988

      Homosexualité et révolution, Paris, Le vent du ch’min, 1983, texte intégral

      http://kropot.free.fr/Guerin-homorev.htm

      Ce serait sous-informer le lecteur que de lui celer le revers de la médaille. Beaucoup d’homosexuels, issus des classes privilégiées, professent des opinions contre-révolutionnaires. Ils s’assurent ainsi pour leurs escapades érotiques la tolérance, voire la protection du pouvoir. Ils s’arrangent pour échapper, de par leur statut social ou leur renom culturel, aux persécutions homophobes. Leur fortune leur permet de s’approvisionner sans risque ni peine en chair fraîche. D’ailleurs on ne devrait pas trop leur en vouloir puisque l’âge ou un physique médiocre leur interdisent les conquêtes masculines gratuites.

      Mais combien déplaisante est la conduite de tels grands couturiers, de tels chorégraphes, de tels cinéastes, de tels traiteurs de luxe, de tels vétérans de l’aéronautique, de tels fleurons du Paris nocturne qui s’entourent d’un sérail de garçons, tout en versant aux caisses électorales des partis de droite. Trop souvent ils ont tendance à considérer comme du bétail - voire à faire disparaître - les beaux gosses qui ont été les délices de leurs nuits. Si d’aventure, l’un d’eux verse dans la délinquance, pour tenter de rivaliser avec leurs gros sous, ils n’esquisseront pas le moindre geste pour le tirer d’affaire et on les entendra maugréer d’avoir eu des relations trop compromettantes pour leur standing social.

      Avoués, cachés ou refoulés, des écrivains, comme le poète Robert de Montesquiou-Fezensac (modèle du baron de Charlus), Pierre Loti, Abel Hermant, Jacques de Lacretelle, Marcel Jouhandeau, Henri de Montherlant, Julien Green, Roger Peyrefitte, des politiciens comme les anciens ministres Abel Bonnard, Louis Jacquinot, Roger Frey, des maréchaux comme Lyautey et de Lattre de Tassigny, des philosophes comme Gabriel Marcel, des historiens comme Pierre Gaxotte et Philippe Erlanger ont été, ou sont, des homosexuels de droite.

      Bien qu’un peu plus ouverts politiquement : Marcel Proust, Jean Cocteau, François Mauriac.

      Auteur de
      Daniel Guérin, Kinsey et la sexualité, Paris, Julliard, 1955.

      –----
      Plusieurs des co-fondateurs de la SFSC apparaissent sur une des 3 pétitions, Michel Meignant et à plusieurs reprises le patronyme Gellman .

      Sur Wikipédia france, une page « Robert Gellman » a été supprimée 2 fois en 2010, dont une pour « Violation de copyright : aihus.fr/… » Ce site, qui présentait « l’Association interdisciplinaire
      post-universitaire de Sexologie » a été refondu.
      On trouve les publications de Robert Gellman (1935-2008) sur Data BNF https://data.bnf.fr/fr/12608372/robert_gellman

      {{Gilbert Tordjman}} (non signataire) est co-fondateur de la SFSC avec Robert Gellman en 1973
      Médecin. - Président de l’Association mondiale de sexologie, secrétaire général de la Société française de sexologie clinique (en 1989)

      En 2002, il est accusé d’abus sexuels sur certaines de ses patientes et mis en examen pour viol. En 2003 il est incarcéré à la maison d’arrêt de Fresnes pour ne pas avoir respecté l’interdiction d’exercer la médecine qui pesait sur lui. Il devait être jugé aux assises le 28 avril 2009 mais il décède d’un cancer début mars 2009.

      Tordjman était célèbré et il était aussi pédiatre.

      – Ok, donc 7 ans d’attente pour un jugement qui n’aura pas lieu.

    • @sinehebdo, excuse moi de reposter ma demande, mais des fois que tu ne l’ai pas vu, est-ce que tu as possibilité de trouver la liste des signataires de la « lettre en soutien à Gérard R. » parue dans Libération du 23 mars 1979 ?
      C’est l’omerta sur cette liste, il y aurait plus de 60 signataires, dont Moustaki, Rochefort, Bruckner, JL Bory
      Merci :)

  • @touti et @tintin proposait de faire une carte autour des ressources qui s’accumulent autour de #Matzneff
    https://seenthis.net/messages/817289#message817529
    Comme l’idée me plait bien j’ouvre un message dédié en espérant @touti et @tintin que ca vous dérange pas.

    Pour la carte des réseaux d’influence. Il y a les listes des pétitionnaires sur wikipédia

    https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/P%C3%A9titions_en_France_concernant_la_majorit%C3%A9_sexuelle

    On peu voire qu’il y a 3 pétitions. Plusieurs personnes ont signé les 3 pétitions. Comment vous voyez les choses ? Est-ce qu’il faut mettre en valeur ?
    celleux qui sont dans les 3 pétitions,
    celleux qui ont changé de discours et celleux qui n’ont pas changer,
    celleux qui sont par ailleur auteurs de féminicides (Altusser) , de viols(Matzneff),
    celleux qui sont de l’académie française (il y a en une bonne brouette)
    les organiser selon les idées politiques entre pedophobes de gauches vs pedophobes de droite
    Les épinglés avec les différentes citations qui montrent que ce ne sont pas des simples signataires mais des militant·es

    J’avais pensé à un #bingo des arguments mais en commencant à l’écrire ici je me suis dit que ca serait surtout utile à des pédocriminels pour se trouver des excuses du coup j’ai laissé tombé. Vos avis sont bienvenus là dessus aussi. Je vais essayé de me changer un peu les idées.

    • La première pétition de 1977 semble avoir été écrite par Matzneff lui même

      La quête des signatures fut également menée par Matzneff lui-même, en un temps très court, avec l’aide de Guy Hocquenghem. La plupart des personnes contactées se montrèrent favorables ; il n’y eut que de rares refus (Marguerite Duras, Hélène Cixous, Xavière Gauthier, Michel Foucault entre autres).

      Une lettre ouverte fut publiée dans Le Monde sous le titre « À propos d’un procès », la veille du procès de trois Français (Bernard Dejager, Jean-Claude Gallien et Jean Burckhardt), tous accusés d’avoir eu des relations sexuelles avec des filles et des garçons de 13 et 14 ans dans l’affaire dite « de Versailles »3.

      Ce « communiqué » présente comme « scandaleux » la durée de plus de trois ans de détention provisoire des trois hommes, arrêtés à l’automne 1973, « pour instruire une simple affaire de "mœurs" où les enfants n’ont pas été victimes de la moindre violence ». Il juge disproportionnées les peines encourues par les adultes pour des relations sexuelles avec des adolescents de 13 ou 14 ans, alors que la loi reconnaît une capacité de discernement aux adolescents, qui peuvent être jugés et condamnés à partir de l’âge de 13 ans3. Le texte relève aussi que des filles de 13 ans ont le droit de se faire prescrire la pilule en France3.

    • Pour la dernière je trouve pas de liste, seul 3 noms émégent

      En mars 1979, une lettre est publiée dans la page courrier du journal Libération, en soutien à Gérard R., alors accusé de crime sexuel sur des enfants et attendant son procès depuis dix-huit mois. La lettre rapporte que Gérard R. vit avec des jeunes filles de 6 à 12 ans « dont l’air épanoui montre aux yeux de tous, y compris leurs parents, le bonheur qu’elles trouvent en lui »10. L’affirmation qu’une fillette de 6 ans pouvait donner un consentement éclairé à des relations sexuelles avec un adulte et qu’elle en serait épanouie fut signée par 63 personnes, dont Pascal Bruckner , Georges Moustaki et Christiane Rochefort .

      Dans ce livre publié en 2004 on peu voir que les noms sont dissimulés et qu’i est déconseillé de les chercher et il est expliqué que le droit ne protege pas les mineurs en 2004 plus qu’en 1977... et pas plus qu’en 2020 d’ailleurs.

    • très intéressant toute fois de matérilalisé le lien entre les défenseurs de pédocriminel et les violeurs genre DSK. Sans le travail des féministes, de pleins de femmes, il y a plein de choses que je serais encore en train d’essayer de comprendre.

    • sinon faire un truc chronologique (pour ce qui est de la cartographie, mes connaissances s’arrêtent à la bonne vieille frise de CM2) ? ça permetterais de montrer ce qui reste, ce qui dure, ce qui a changé...

      Petit rappel à celles et ceux qui se cachent derrière l’époque.

      En 1969, Gabrielle Russier est condamnée pour détournement de mineur. Elle a 32 ans, son élève en a 17.

      Peut-être eût-elle bénéficié de plus de clémence si elle s’était appelée Gabriel ?

      Les reports de faits présumés immondes, on en fait des idées et des opinions immondes. Le contenant devient le contenu et vice et versa. On a la gerbe, c’est impossible, intenable d’en débattre et si besoin on sortira la batte de base-ball :

      Le débat est fermé, verrouillé, on plante des petits sens interdits un peu partout et on le fait avec d’autant plus de vigueur, de conviction, de rage, qu’on est persuadé d’avoir le bon sens (le sens commun) avec soi.

      Et comment ne pas l’avoir quand un pédophile d’écriture subit le même sort post-mortem qu’un dictateur génocidaire ou qu’un chef terroriste responsable d’une des pires atrocités du XXIe siècle ?

La vertu n’entre en rien dans cette mutualisation des consentements. En fait, l’homme s’apprécie trop pour supporter qu’on lui refuse la pareille. Ensuite, le néo-senior est resté fixé au stade ado et s’interdit tout accès d’autorité, tout abus de pouvoir.

      La vérité est que la France sera toujours la France, comme dirait le général de Gaulle : excessive, querelleuse, capable un matin, en se réveillant, de vouer aux gémonies des écrivains comme Peter Handke et Patrick Besson (de fanatiques partisans de la Grande Serbie), Marc-Edouard Nabe et Renaud Camus (deux antisémites bien connus), Richard Millet (un réac de la pire espèce) ou Gabriel Matzneff (Barbe-Bleue des temps modernes)

      Et si le silence qui entoure désormais l’oeuvre de Gabriel Matzneff n’était pas tant dû à l’ordre moral, « pharisaïque », qu’à un changement dans le régime du plaisir ? L’auteur ne se pose pas cette question. Il ne semble pas voir la mécanique des corps sans Dieu, qui s’emboîtent plus par arithmétique que par « séduction ». Ce serait en quelque sorte invalider sa vie, reconnaître qu’elle ne fut pas celle d’un saint ou d’un martyr, mais, disons, quelque chose de plus simple, de plus émouvant aussi : une existence vouée à sauver une sensibilité perdue ou en voie d’extinction, un ancien régime de la chair, celui où le plaisir, la joie étaient intimement liés à la conscience de la faute.

    • diatribes en or
      https://www.lemonde.fr/livres/article/2012/01/12/diatribes-en-or_1628596_3260.html

      La Séquence de l’énergumène réunit les chroniques de télévision que Gabriel Matzneff donna au quotidien Combat entre 1963 et 1965. A l’époque, le sulfureux diariste n’a encore rien publié : il se fait les dents sur le petit écran sans avoir de poste. Qu’importe ! Il est déjà mousquetaire, Aramis divisé entre saint Jean Climaque et les fesses rebondies des adolescentes qu’il drague sur les transats de la piscine Deligny.

      https://www.lemonde.fr/archives/article/2000/11/03/mamma-li-turchi-de-gabriel-matzneff_3642020_1819218.html

      Gabriel Matzneff poursuit son oeuvre originale, oublié des médias mais toujours apprécié de ses fidèles lecteurs. L’écrivain donne le meilleur de son art dans son Journal. Mamma, li Turchi ! est un roman. Ses personnages (lui-même en cinéaste libertin), brillants et lucides, apprécient les joies charnelles et culturelles. Ils s’évadent d’un Paris décevant et se retrouvent en Italie, à Venise. Le roman est impeccablement construit, les dialogues sont percutants, la subversion élégante. On y retrouve les révoltes chères à Matzneff : « li Turchi » sont les oppresseurs de tout bord qui étouffent l’individu. Matzneff corrosif, impertinent, sincère, jeune éternellement - mais la part belle du roman est l’ombre qui s’avance sur la vie d’un homme solitaire qui se voulut libre et vrai (La Table ronde, 272 p., 105 F [16,01 ]).

    • Lucien Engelmajer

      Le Patriarche. Communauté thérapeutique internationale d’origine française constituée exclusivement de toxicomanes et anciens toxicomane et prônant la réinsertion au sein même de l’institution.
      Cette association, dont le premier centre, La Boère (Haute-Garonne), ouvrit en 1971, connut un essor considérable, très généralement en marge des instances officielles, et implanta ses différentes structures dans de nombreux pays. Elle suscita de vives polémiques avant d’être reconnue comme secte dans le rapport de la commission d’enquête parlementaire sur le phénomène sectaire (rapport Guyard, 1995), ce qui conduisit à l’arrêt des subventions publiques.
      Lucien Engelmajer, leader charismatique de la communauté, ce missionnaire laïque entretenait des rapports conflictuels avec tous ceux qui ne reconnaissaient pas ses méthodes. Opposant farouche aux programme de substitution, à la légalisation des drogues, aux échanges de seringues, bataillant contre l’anonymat des séropositifs, il a toujours tenu un discours de combat, se déclarant enfermé par la presse « dans un ghetto de silence ».

    • Ohlala, c’est dur d’étudier ce monde là, c’est du genre Voici ou Gala de la pornographie verbale et médiatique, c’est à celui qui gerbe le plus loin, vraiment crade. Et je vous évite la recopie de leur diatribes pour exciter le chaland. Maigre pouvoir, misère du faux intellectuel qui se demande ce qu’il pourrait inventer pour alimenter son égo. On peut comprendre le dégout qu’ils inspirent, comme le dégout du cinéma français et de ses acteurs masculinichiants, de la littérature française malmenée par ces porcs, et des institutions qui leurs construisent des ponts d’ors avec des médias à la solde de ces nuisibles.

    • Si je peux me permettre, ce genre de cartographie demande pas mal de taf et de la méthodologie.
      Plutôt que faire cela en vrac sur seenthis vous pourriez remplir un tableur collaboratif et créer des classes (écrivains, journalistes, personnalités politiques, curés...) et par ordre alphabétique. Ce serait plus efficace. Et pendant que vous compilez ces données, réfléchir à leur mise en place.

    • Hello all.
      – je pense que seenthis n’est pas le meilleur outil pour cette cartographie aussi, car on se perd dans les messages, c’est difficile de synthétiser l’évolution d’une position, de creuser chaque « fiche »... au delà du fichage lui-même d’une certaine manière, même si, de fait, je pense qu’il est important de retracer cette histoire, ces soutiens, ces ambiguïtés, ces violences, cette omerta, cette justification intellectuelle du viol sur mineurs...

      On pourrait réfléchir à un ou des outils qui permettrait notamment aussi de relever ceux et celles qui reconnaissent s’être trompés, parce que malgré tout, vu l’époque c’était possible.

      Dans mon entourage, je vois dans des familles, notamment de milieux d’intellectuels, mais pas seulement, des personnes, hommes, mais femmes aussi, reconnaître qu’ils se sont laissés emporter par l’époque, pas forcément par leurs actions mais par leur inaction et paroles, par le fait d’avoir laissé agir, et qu’aujourd’hui, ils s’alarmeraient, agiraient autrement de savoir que x ou y dort nu.e. avec des mineurs nu.es lorsqu’il.elle les accueille pour le week-end par exemple, qu’à l’époque, emportés par l’euphorie de la libéralisation sexuelle, des corps renouvelés, ils ne savaient pas non n’ont pas voulus voir, savoir, agir etc... alors que tout était là. Je pense qu’il y a des gens sincères, rongés par leur inaction, leur aveuglement, et que c’est bien aussi dans ce type de cartographie de le prendre en compte. Je ne sais évidemment pas s’ils sont nombreux à tenir cette position dans cette liste. Quand aux morts, je ne sais pas.

      – J’avais discuté avec l’historien Artières, qui a tenté pour le livre L’esprit français de voir à quelles conditions il serait possible de faire un travail d’historien sur cette période. Je scannerai l’article pour ceusses qui le veulent. Je lui ai demandé comment c’était passé ce travail, sachant, que je trouvais personnellement insupportable ne serait que de feuilleter le gay voyage de Hocquenghem. Il m’a dit que ça avait été très dur, que ça l’avait profondément affecté. Je dois dire et c’est mon second point, que je ne me sens pas capable de faire ce travail, je ne me sens pas outillée pour ne pas être dévastée par cette exploration historique. Sachant, et je ferai un billet plus tard, que je me souviens très bien de voir tout ces types et précisément ce connard de Matzneff à la télé et partout et je me souviens très bien ce que ça m’a fait, je ne peux croire que je suis la seule a avoir été maintenue la tête sous l’eau à chaque fois que je voyais sa gueule. Revoir sa photo partout là, ça fait remonter gerbe, colère, douleur et désespoir.

    • Après mon message d’hier, je voulais vous dire merci à vous tout·es sur seenthis ici sur ce fil de tenter de faire le jour sur cette intelligentsia criminelle. Le fait que nous soyons nombreus·es à vouloir comprendre malgré le désespoir et la difficulté à se confronter à cette bouillie malsaine, donne du courage pour poursuivre.
      @odilon, oui, ça peut être long de faire cette carte et peut-être ne verra-t-elle pas le jour ou autrement, mais rassemblons comme nous pouvons pour au moins essayer de comprendre.
      @supergeante merci aussi, c’est très intéressant tes interventions, notamment sur la façon dont ce sont incrustés les pédovioleurs dans les libertés et les revendications d’une sexualité différente.

    • Totalement d’accord avec toi, @supergeante. Mon billet initial est d’ailleurs la manifestation de ce que m’a provoqué la réapparition du nom de Matzneff dans l’actualité : le souvenir du violent écœurement de l’époque et de l’incompréhension totale de sa place dans le microcosme littéraire parisien.

      D’ailleurs, avec tout ça, je n’ai toujours pas la réponse à ma question de savoir si l’article du Monde a eu l’honnêteté de rappeler que ce monsieur a eu son rond de serviette dans les colonnes du Monde des Livres. Ou que la grande prêtresse de l’époque continue à tenir Matzneff pour plus que fréquentable et chie copieusement sur Denise Bombardier.

    • J’aime bien les cartes mais beaucoup moins les listes, à part celle de @les_listes_de une carte autour du cas Matzneff semble réalisable mais au-delà ça me semble tentaculaire. Il y a beaucoup de choses sur le sujet, ici sur seenthis. @mad_meg bien sûr, toujours sur les charbons ardents. Mais aussi le remarquable travail du collectif @tradfem et ses traductions. (je ne suis pas bilingue et forcément je passe plus de temps à comprendre certains articles de feminismcurrent par exemple :
      https://www.feministcurrent.com/2017/06/06/suzzan-blac-art-trauma-child-exploitation

      Suzzan Blac : Il existe un tel climat de sexisme, d’apathie, d’ignorance et d’acceptabilité entourant le conditionnement et l’exploitation sexuelle commerciale des filles et des femmes. Il y en a beaucoup qui ne veulent pas ou ne prennent pas la peine de lire et de faire des recherches sur ces sujets, mais une image est instantanée et peut être ancrée dans l’esprit, alors je pense qu’elle peut mieux faire passer un message que les mots.

      Nous savons tous que l’un des genres de pornographie les plus populaires est « Teen », alors qu’est-ce que cela vous dit ? Si les pornographes (légaux) pouvaient utiliser des enfants, ils le feraient. Tout comme les proxénètes qui forcent et exploitent les jeunes adolescentes à se prostituer et exigent un prix plus élevé des nombreux parieurs qui veulent des jeunes filles. Mais ils ne peuvent pas le faire dans la pornographie parce que c’est illégal, alors ils font la meilleure chose « légale » qui soit : de la pornographie « à peine légale » mettant en scène des jeunes de 18 ans - des filles vraiment jeunes, à la poitrine presque plate, sans poils pubiens et avec une queue de cheval. Le pornographe Max Hardcore utilise des jeunes de 18 ans et les fait paraître plus jeunes en leur faisant porter des nattes, des appareils dentaires et en achetant leurs vêtements dans des magasins de vêtements pour enfants. Il les dégrade, les humilie, les agresse sexuellement et les détruit ensuite sur la pellicule.

      Le Japon n’a rendu illégales les images d’abus d’enfants qu’en 2014 et il y a encore des images d’abus d’enfants disponibles dans les magasins de vidéo. Les jeunes filles sont exploitées sexuellement dans les bars et les clubs, et sont prostituées ouvertement dans de nombreux endroits. Il existe des distributeurs automatiques qui vendent des sous-vêtements portés par de jeunes

    • j’avoue que me retrouver face à l’impuissance m’est presqu’aussi pénible qu’une plongée dans ce tas de fientes. Pourtant, je ne vois pas trop quoi proposer d’autre que cette compulsion d’articles, qui semble bien vaine aussi. Désolé si j’ai un peu pourri le fil en partant sur les chapo de roues. à voir avec le temps donc. J’ai regardé leaving neverland hier, c’est très fort, très intelligent.

    • @tintin vu aussi. En fait, suite aux articles et à l’interview de Adèle Haenel. C’est un film qui a permis à beaucoup de gens de parler.

      C’est peut-être pas très clair ce que j’ai dit plus haut, en fait, ce qui me terrasse en ce moment, c’est le côté massif...

      Je savais déjà, de manière empirique que beaucoup de gent.es étaient touchés avec une majorité d’ex-enfants, filles et de garçons, ainsi que de femmes adultes à l’âge des crimes perpétrés sur eux/elles. Il suffisait de traîner un peu dans des milieux féministes pour te rendre compte aussi du besoin de dire, de partager et de la loi du silence, et ses contours multiples.

      Maintenant, je me rends compte que c’est pire que ce que j’imaginais, des ami.es parlent enfin, des élèves en classe, des collègues, c’est atroce, je ne comprends pas comment il est encore possible de défendre les mécanismes sociaux à l’origine de ce désastre social, collectif et intime à la fois. Combien faudra-t-il de témoignages, de films, d’études, de collectes, de cartes, de listes, de décompte ? Je me dis : autant qu’il le faudra.

      Donc, quand je dis que seenthis n’est pas l’outil idéal, je dis pas ça pour entraver la démarche. Je me dis juste que ça vaudrait la peine de faire un truc hyper lisible, mais comme je le disais précédemment, en ce moment, je ne me sens pas trop capable de participer à une telle entreprise, et je ne sais pas trop comment il faudrait faire, mais je veux bien y réfléchir à un autre moment. Ces échanges sur seenthis, je pense notamment au thread sur le livre de Nabokov, j’y reviens souvent et j’ai envoyé des gens s’y plonger, donc, c’est vraiment bien que ça existe.

    • Je voyais plutôt ce démarrage comme une entreprise de compilation collective rapide en vue de construire un jour un truc plus peaufiné ensuite, comme le laissait entendre le fait que @touti réfléchissait à une structure de base de données par exemple. Ya le travail de rechercher des gens et des sources et des extraits, et ya le travail de structuration, de comment on normalise tout ça, quels champs, pour pouvoir ensuite en sortir des choses intéressantes (en terme de chrono, de liaisons, ou simplement de visualisation, etc). Le fait de déjà avoir tout un matériel au même endroit, peut aider à faire ressortir comment on voudrait le structurer, c’est déjà un premier pas, même si le reste ne suit pas, ou dans longtemps.

    • @tintin vu aussi le film leaving never land où témoignent les victimes de michael jackson, Adèle Haenel relate que (voir son interview sur mediapart) ça l’a aidé à prendre la parole pour dénoncer les agressions sexuelles de Christophe Ruggia lorsqu’elle était enfant.
      J’aimerai vraiment pouvoir dire que c’était une autre époque mais il en va de la domination sexuelle dans le capitalisme même.

      @supergeante la tâche est énorme et ce ne sera pas du tout confortable. Ici au moins on a la chance d’être nombreus·es et j’espère, de savoir s’écouter. J’ai une amie metteuse en scène qui parle du chaos qui précède ces créations, ça me donne toujours du courage de penser à cela quand ça part un peu dans tous les sens !
      @rastapopoulos je ne souhaite pas mettre en ligne de suite parce que j’y vais pas avec le dos de la cuillère et c’est pas au point du tout. Donc, comme tu dis les essais de BDD c’est juste un début, qu’au moins ça existe quelque part, en vue de …
      – superposition chronologique retenue en tout cas

    • suis assez d’accord avec @rastapopoulos (qui est un nom mishèllène trouvé par un grand pote de Matzneff, Hergé soit dit en passant (salo !)). moi ça me va de continuer à alimenter ce fil en y balançant des noms, des citations, des sources. Juste se réstreindre à matzneff ça fait chier parce qu’on va faire le portrait d’une époque (qui est aussi bien singulière, il faut le dire (c’est plus pareil, mais ça continue quand même (same same but different))), et en même temps si on doit aller jusqu’au neverland de mickael jackson, qui l’emprunte si je ne m’abuse, à lewis caroll (gros pédo aussi), ça fait de la route... on va finir en grèce antique... C’est complétement absurde parce qu’il faudrait en faire un monument, un truc gigantesque, à la hauteur, et en même temps ériger un monument pour ça, c’est déjà pas la joie et en plus s’agirait pas d’alimenter la pédopropagande (hors de question, et je pense qu’on est d’accord, d’utiliser des images de gosses par exemple)...

Gabriel est mon Tintin. D’ailleurs, il avait Hergé pour ami. Il est mon guide des mauvaises fréquentations haut de gamme. Les seules qui vaillent la peine. Adolescent, je dévorais ses fameux carnets noirs comme si un grand frère vivait ce que je n’osais espérer vivre. Gabriel aimait pour moi. Gabriel buvait pour moi. Gabriel souffrait pour moi. Bon. Nous y voilà. Les carnets de Matzneff. J’ai commencé par là, comme ils disent, aux Narcotiques Anonymes. Par ses carnets noirs.

    • @biggrizzly la fiche anglais ne donne toujours pas le détail de la liste manquante celle de libération - à mon avis il doit y avoir des gens importants dans celle ci pour qu’on en trouve pas de traces- je veux dire plus important que dans celles de Matzneff et celle de la dépénalisations des viols sur mineurs.

      J’essaye de pas sombré dans un épisode de remonté traumatique mais je ne résiste pas à revenir ici. En voyant les listes il me semble voire se dégagé plusieurs axes :

      – les réseaux homo-militants - on trouve la mythologie autour de la pédérastie grec - celleux-là confondent la lutte contre la discrimination de l’homosexualité et la pedo-criminalité. On trouve des fondateurs d’asso importantes FDLH - Arcadi
      – les poids lourds de la French Theory et des phallosophes de gauche -
      – Quelques grandes féministes parfois prédatrices sexuelles - Rochefort à signé les 3 pétitions et Beauvoir etait une prédatrice de ses éléves.
      – les libéraux individualises - pour classé les militant·es pedosexuels - Ici je pense à Millet qui milite toujours pour les violeurs et contre les victimes quelque soit leur age. - Je pense que Altusser pourrait etre mis en valeur aussi car il joint le féminicide à sa militance pour les pedo-viols.
      – J’ai vu passé plusieurs personnes liées à Jospin, ou à l’appareil du PS. aussi les Gluksmann il me semble que c’est du PS
      – On trouve quelques académiciens français et phallosophes de droite
      – Quelques prêtres et pasteurs -
      – de nombreux et nombreuses psyanalystes- psychiatres - psychologues - à mettre en lien avec les discours culpabilisant les victimes de la psychanalyse freudo-lacanienne - les immondices dites par Dolto sur les victimes d’inceste
      – des membres de prix littéraires qui se passent les plats - cf le prix de 2014 à Matzneff - on pourrais sortir la liste du jury.
      – peut etre des gens un peu « égarés » qui ont signé par amitié sans bien lire ces pétitions - Matzneff avançait caché et si la personne n’as signé qu’une fois et pas récidivé - Je connais pas Rancière mais @tintin tu avais l’air de dire qu’il était revenu sur ses positions - ca vaut le coup de signalé lorsqu’un·e signataire à pris ses distances et de quel manière.

      Il pourrait y avoir des couleurs - une qui signale la pratique affiché de pédocriminalité - une qui signale celleux qui ont signé les 3 pétitions et ne sont jamais revenu dessus et a contraire (style Dolto) - une qui signale celleux qui se sont écarté de ces pétitions

      Je ne sais pas si à partir de là on peu commencer à voire des ensembles se dessiné. Si vous voyez d’autres catégories que j’aurais pas vu n’hésitez pas à les partagé car je connais pas tous ces noms et il y a des réseaux qui me sont invisibles.

    • Waa, j’avais pas lu cette interview ou elle affirme des choses ignobles. Ok @mad_meg , il n’y aura pas d’échappatoire pour Dolto.

      « Q- Dans l’acte incestueux il y a toujours un traumatisme pour la fille, non ?
      R- Evidemment qu’il y a un traumatisme ! Nous ne vivons pas dans une société ou ces choses sont permises. Résultat, la fille ne peut pas se développer normalement car ses pulsions sont occupées a un lieu où elles ne devraient pas l’être encore. Il se produit un blocage dans l’évolution de l’intelligence.
      (…)
      Q- Donc la petite fille est toujours consentante ?
      R- Tout à fait
      Q- Mais enfin, il y a bien des cas de viols ?
      R- Il n’y a pas de viol du tout, elles sont consentantes »
      #aberrant #criminel #1979

      Et malgré sa critique de Dolto Béatrice Jade considère dans les points tout de même ’constructifs’ que « Les lois doivent faire la différence entre les enfants non nubiles et nubiles qui devraient devenir juridiquement autonomes et ne plus dépendre des décisions parentales. »
      Petit rappel
      En France, la majorité civile est fixée à 18 ans depuis le 5 juillet 1974 ; elle était auparavant fixée à 21 ans depuis 1792.

      Merci @touti J’avais pas vu cette critique de Béatrice Jade et merci pour ton rappel je n’était pas au courant pour cette modification de la loi en 1974.

    • La promulgation de la loi est du 5 juillet, mais son entrée en vigueur était le 1er septembre (qui était un dimanche…) Je m’en souviens assez distinctement, car en 3 jours consécutifs je suis devenu trois fois majeur :-)
      – le 31/08, j’avais accompli un an de service militaire, ce qui émancipait,
      – le 1/09, c’était l’entrée en vigueur de la loi,

    • L’article du Monde :

      À PROPOS D’UN PROCÈS
      Le Monde, le 26 janvier 1977
      https://www.lemonde.fr/archives/article/1977/01/26/a-propos-d-un-proces_2854399_1819218.html

      Nous avons reçu le communiqué suivant :

      " Les 27, 28 et 29 janvier, devant la cour d’assises des Yvelines, vont comparaître, pour attentat à la pudeur sans violence sur des mineurs de quinze ans, Bernard Dejager, Jean-Claude Gallien et Jean Burckhardt, qui, arrêtés à l’automne 1973, sont déjà restés plus de trois ans en détention provisoire. Seul Bernard Dejager a récemment bénéficié du principe de la liberté des inculpés.

      « Une si longue détention préventive pour instruire une simple affaire de » mœurs « , où les enfants n’ont pas été victimes de la moindre violence, mais, au contraire, ont précisé aux juges d’instruction qu’ils étaient consentants (quoique la justice leur dénie actuellement tout droit au consentement), une si longue détention préventive nous paraît déjà scandaleuse.
       » Aujourd’hui, ils risquent d’être condamnés à une grave peine de réclusion criminelle soit pour avoir eu des relations sexuelles avec ces mineurs, garçons et filles, soit pour avoir favorisé et photographié leurs jeux sexuels.

      « Nous considérons qu’il y a une disproportion manifeste, d’une part, entre la qualification de » crime « qui justifie une telle sévérité, et la nature des faits reprochés ; d’autre part, entre le caractère désuet de la loi et la réalité quotidienne d’une société qui tend à reconnaître chez les enfants et les adolescents l’existence d’une vie sexuelle (si une fille de treize ans a droit à la pilule, c’est pour quoi faire ?).
       » La loi française se contredit lorsqu’elle reconnaît une capacité de discernement à un mineur de treize ou quatorze ans qu’elle peut juger et condamner, alors qu’elle lui refuse cette capacité quand il s’agit de sa vie affective et sexuelle.

      « Trois ans de prison pour des caresses et des baisers, cela suffit. Nous ne comprendrions pas que le 29 janvier Dejager, Gallien et Burckhardt ne retrouvent pas la liberté. »

      Ont signé ce communiqué : Louis Aragon, Francis Ponge, Roland Barthes, Simone de Beauvoir, Judith Belladona, docteur Michel Bon, psychosociologue, Bertrand Boulin, Jean-Louis Bory, François Chatelet, Patrice Chéreau, Jean-Pierre Colin, Copi, Michel Cressole, Gilles et Fanny Deleuze, Bernard Dort, Françoise d’Eaubonne, docteur Maurice Eme, psychiatre, Jean-Pierre Faye, docteur Pierrette Garrou, psychiatre, Philippe Gavi, docteur Pierre-Edmond Gay, psychanalyste, docteur Claire Gellman, psychologue, docteur Robert Gellman, psychiatre, André Glucksmann, Félix Guattari, Daniel Guérin, Pierre Guyotat, Pierre Hahn, Jean-Luc Henning, Christian Hennion, Jacques Henric, Guy Hocquenghem, docteur Bernard Kouchner, Françoise Laborie, Madeleine Laïk, Jack Lang, Georges Lapassade, Raymond Lepoutre, Michel Leyris, Jean-François Lyotard, Dionys Mascolo, Gabriel Matzneff, Catherine Millet, Vincent Monteil, docteur Bernard Muldworf, psychiatre, Négrepont, Marc Pierret, Anne Querrien, Griselidis Real, François Régnault, Claude et Olivier Revault d’Allonnes, Christiane Rochefort, Gilles Sandier, Pierre Samuel, Jean-Paul Sartre, René Schérer, Philippe Sollers, Gérard Soulier, Victoria Thérame, Marie rhonon, Catherine Valabrègue, docteur Gérard Vallès, psychiatre, Hélène Vedrines, Jean-Marie Vincent Jean-Michel Wilhelm, Danielle Sallel nave, Alain Cuny.

      https://seenthis.net/messages/817794
      Les viols contre les mineurs sont de moins en moins réprimés. (-40% de condamnation pour viol depuis 10ans - info qui laisse les gens manifestement totalement indifférents) En France l’age du consentement sexuel est autour de 4-5 ans (tout le monde s’en fout aussi) et on valorise encore les femmes pour leur jeunesse, leur virginité (cf Moix).
      Perso je voie venir le gros déni qui accompagne ce déballage - c’etait une autre époque - ca implique que ca ne pourrais pas/plus se passé aujourd’hui -

    • Concernant #Alain_Cuny, il a joué en 1974 dans Emmanuelle, il a alors 66 ans.

      On peut noté, entre autre, une des dernière scène du film où Mario, le personnage interprété par Alain Cuny, organise et contemple le viol d’Emmanuelle :

      Mario explique à Emmanuelle que la monogamie n’est plus de mode et que c’est la jouissance, plutôt que le sentiment de culpabilité ou la raison qui doit la guider en matière de sexualité, et qu’ainsi elle atteindra un plaisir bien plus grand. Afin de lui démontrer son discours, il l’emmène dans un bar qui fait aussi fumerie d’opium où elle est violée par un des habitués, pendant que lui-même regarde la scène.

      extrait WP où la tauromachie est plus importante (j’te’jure, le clavier m’en tombe)

      Quand je parle de garçons, c’est plutôt 9-14 ans que des jeunes gens. Peyrefitte et Montherlant, par ailleurs, faisaient des virées ensemble et « entretenaient » à eux deux des mères de familles complaisantes... Peyrefitte, toujours langue de vipère, prétend d’ailleurs que Montherlant s’est suicidé parce que des parents de garçons commençaient à faire du bruit et qu’il craignait un procès infamant. Enfin, tout cela n’est pas très ragoûtant et probablement pas prioritaire dans une bio sur Montherlant. D’autant qu’à côté, on ne parle même pas de sa passion pour la tauromachie, plus éclairante pour comprendre son œuvre. Jastrow | 兔 30 jun 2004 à 17:18 (CEST)

      Merci !

      Je rappelle que le journal L’Express a été pour le moins complaisant à l’égard de Matzneff (plusieurs pages qui l’encensent y ont d’ailleurs disparues mystérieusement).

    • @touti J’ai pas réussie à trouvé la liste que tu cherche seul 3 noms sont mentionnés à partir de l’article de l’expresse que tu a linké et qui sert de base aux autres. Les noms sont P.Bruckner, C.Rochefort et G.Moustaki
      voir ici https://seenthis.net/messages/817814#message817834
      J’ai pas vu que Dolto y était mentionné, il me semble que Dolto n’a signé que la première pétition et pas seconde écrite par Matzneff, ni la troisième (avec une réserve pour la 3eme car on a pas la liste et peut être qu’il y a Dolto dedans).

    • A moins que la journaliste Remy se soit trompée, dans le lien que je donne juste au-dessus, le paragraphe commence par 4 noms …

      Signée cette fois par une multitude de personnalités, Louis #Althusser, Jacques #Derrida, André #Glucksmann, et même Françoise #Dolto (voir l’encadré page 84). En mars 1979, pour soutenir Gérard R., un pédophile qui attend depuis dix-huit mois son procès, une lettre publiée dans la page Courrier de Libération accuse la « morale d’Etat » : « Ce que vise l’ordre moral, c’est le maintien de la soumission des enfants-mineur(e) s au pouvoir adulte. » L’auteur de la lettre appelle les lecteurs, en particulier les femmes, apparemment rétives, à signer le texte suivant : « L’amour des enfants est aussi l’amour de leur corps. Le désir et les jeux sexuels librement consentis ont leur place dans les rapports entre enfants et adultes. Voilà ce que pensait et vivait Gérard R. avec des fillettes de 6 à 12 ans dont l’épanouissement attestait aux yeux de tous, y compris de leurs parents, le bonheur qu’elles trouvaient avec lui. » Au bas de ce texte, 63 signatures. Parmi elles, Pascal Bruckner, Georges Moustaki, Christiane Rochefort et d’autres, plus attendus ou moins connus.

      Apparemment la liste est publiée dans un encadré page 84 de l’Express de 01/03/2001, si quelqu’un y a accès …

    • A mon avis le problème viens de la mise en page. La partie sur la pétition que tu cherche commence ici :

      En mars 1979, pour soutenir Gérard R., un pédophile qui attend depuis dix-huit mois son procès,

      et il n’y a que

      Au bas de ce texte, 63 signatures. Parmi elles, Pascal Bruckner, Georges Moustaki, Christiane Rochefort et d’autres, plus attendus ou moins connus.

      –------

      cette phrase que tu as prise avec a été déplacé de la fin du paragraphe précedent et crée la confusion. En fait pour moi ca donne :

      Quelque temps plus tard, une lettre ouverte à la commission de révision du Code pénal - jouant sur la confusion des actes commis sur des moins de 15 ans par des adultes ou par des mineurs de 15 à 18 ans - exige que cette « infraction » ne soit plus un crime et qu’on tienne compte « essentiellement du consentement du mineur ». Signée cette fois par une multitude de personnalités, Louis Althusser, Jacques Derrida, André Glucksmann, et même Françoise Dolto (voir l’encadré page 84).

      (l’encadré page 84 devrais en principe contenir cette liste : https://seenthis.net/messages/817814#message817831 )

      puis dans un autre paragraphe

      En mars 1979, pour soutenir Gérard R., un pédophile qui attend depuis dix-huit mois son procès, ect...Au bas de ce texte, 63 signatures. Parmi elles, Pascal Bruckner, Georges Moustaki, Christiane Rochefort et d’autres, plus attendus ou moins connus.

      et là on en sais pas plus et il faudrait retrouvé le libé de mars 1979 pour avoir cette liste.

      La confusion ne viens pas de la journaliste Remy mais de la mise en page web de son texte qui s’est fait un peu malmené.

      Je ne croi pas avoir vu souligné l’aspect raciste des violences sexuelles commises par Matzneff. Celui ci raconte que lorsqu’il est en voyage il préfere des enfants plus jeunes que lorsqu’il chasse des enfants sur le territoire français.
      #racisme #colonialisme #tourisme_sexuel #prostitution

      En 1990, Matzneff publie Mes amours décomposés, son journal intime pour les années 1983-1984, dans lequel il évoque sa vie quotidienne, ses amours avec de multiples partenaires dont plusieurs adolescentes âgées de quatorze à seize ans, et son renvoi du Monde à la suite de l’affaire du Coral. Il raconte également son voyage à Manille, aux Philippines, au cours duquel il se livre au tourisme sexuel, y compris des viols avec des « petits garçons de onze ou douze ans ». À Manille, il fréquente notamment des Occidentaux venus à la recherche de contacts sexuels, comme Edward Brongersma, juriste et homme politique néerlandais et défenseur connu de la pédophilie34.

      https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gabriel_Matzneff

      en passant sur la fiche wikipédia de Matzneff je relève que Philippe Tesson a lancé sa carrière et qu’il était un grand ami de Hérgé.

      Philippe Tesson, alors directeur de publication du quotidien Combat, le remarque et lui propose d’écrire une chronique chaque jeudi. À compter de cette période, Matzneff ne cesse d’écrire pour de nombreux organes de presse aux opinions politiques très contrastées2 : Aux Écoutes, Notre République, La Nation française, Pariscope, Les Nouvelles littéraires, Matulu, Le Nouvel Adam, Le Quotidien de Paris, Le Figaro, Le Monde (de 1977 à 1982)5, Impact Médecin, la Revue des deux Mondes, Newmen, L’Idiot international, Le Choc du mois. Depuis 2013, il tient une chronique irrégulière sur le site du Point5.

      En 1964, il participe à la création du Comité de coordination de la jeunesse orthodoxe. Il sera, de même, à l’origine de l’émission télévisée Orthodoxie, dont il demeurera le coproducteur jusqu’en 1972, année où, son divorce d’avec Tatiana (épousée en 1970) ayant entraîné chez lui une crise religieuse, il se défera de ces deux charges. Il rencontre #Hergé la même année, en décembre. Leur amitié ne cessera qu’à la mort de ce dernier, en mars 1983[réf. souhaitée].

      –---

      La présence des tenant·es de la psychanalyse qui sont très nombreux ici, est à mettre en parallèle avec le travail de #Sophie_Robert qui à levé le voile sur la misogynie de la doctrine freudienne et lacanienne. Elle a montré qu’en 2017 la psychanalyse tiens toujours le même discours culpabilisant pour les victimes et déculpabilisant pour les auteurs qu’en 1977.

    • Dans les listes que je recherche, il y a celle des inculpés et condamnés pour l’affaire des ballets roses en 1959/1960.

      Dans le sinistre des #grands_hommes pédosexuels, il y a #Montherlant (1895,1972) légion d’honneur et académicien, ami de Roger #Peyrefitte (1907,2000), lui même pédosexuel dont la victime à 12 ans est Alain-Philippe Malagnac (1951,2000)

      https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_de_Montherlant

      Selon d’autres sources, il aurait perdu son œil lors d’une agression. Cf. #Montherlant et les garçons. Roger Peyrefitte écrivit : « La réalité, hélas ! est tout autre. Il s’est fait tabasser, une nuit, à la sortie d’un cinéma par une bande de garçons, qui avaient vu Montherlant tripoter le petit frère de l’un d’eux. Ils l’ont assommé, et à moitié aveuglé. Ce dramatique incident, qui aurait pu lui valoir le sort de Pasolini, lui a certes abîmé la vue, mais ne l’a en rien menacé de cécité. Après sa mort, son ophtalmologue lui-même l’a déclaré. » (Propos secrets. Paris, Albin Michel, 1977, page 73.)

      Pour Alain-Philippe Malagnac, c’est assez glauque, il meurt dans un incendie en 2000, très certainement par suicide suite au pacte avec Peyrefitte.
      https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alain-Philippe_Malagnac_d%27Argens_de_Vill%C3%A8le

      Cette mort brutale à l’âge de quarante-neuf ans six semaines après celle de Peyrefitte, pose quelques questions. La thèse de l’accident est celle qui a est retenue par les enquêteurs qui affirment n’avoir trouvé aucun liquide inflammable11, même si Peyrefitte, dans ses romans, évoque un « pacte de suicide » entre eux, c’est-à-dire l’intention de se tuer à la mort de l’autre. Un jeune ami de Malagnac a péri également dans l’incendie et une quinzaine de toiles de Salvador Dalí ont été détruites dans le sinistre.

    • @sinehebdo Pour P.Val ca ne m’entonnerais pas de ce sordide personnage. Ca me semble tout de même préférable de sourcer, pas pour épargné ces types, mais pour évité des problèmes à seenthis ou/et à toi car c’est le genre de mecs qui ont les moyens de nuire. Et aussi pour avoir une base de donnée utilisable. Il y a déjà beaucoup de monde concerné, des gens pour qui il y a des faits et/ou propos avérés, autant s’occupé de celleux là, c’est déjà un travail vertigineux.

      Pour les 343 salauds de putiers, j’avais aussi relevé que les signataires de ces pétitions des années 1977-1979 comportent quelques misogynes et même un auteur de féminicide (Altusser) - Peut etre que parmi les 343 salauds on trouve des signataires de 1977 et 1979 ou des proches de Matzneff (il me semble qu’il y a Bégbédé). A ce moment là ca serait pas mal de les mettre en valeur. Je suis d’accord avec la continuité de la pedocriminalité et de la misogynie, mais faire une carte des réseaux pedosexuels c’est deja pas gagné alors faire une carte des réseaux misogynes...

      Sinon cet article de tv5 monde (que j’ai pas encore lu mais seulement survolé) m’as l’air assez fouillé sur le sujet

    • Stéphanie Lamy, sur twitter, :

      https://twitter.com/WCM_JustSocial/status/1210876050307203078

      Avec #Matzneff certain.e.s découvrent que les propagandistes pédocriminels noyautent des milieux pour faire avancer leur « cause ». A l’époque les littéraires, aujourd’hui les services sociaux, psys, magistrature... tous les postes qui assurent l’impunité des auteurs.

      (...)

      #Jean_Marc_Ghitti est professeur agrégé et docteur en philosophie.
      Il enseigne notamment à l’institut de formation en travail social (AFORE) à Saint-Étienne
      Pour lui « L’émotion d’horreur devant la pédophilie peut conduire à l’erreur, car l’émotion trouble le jugement à sa source ». Jean-Marc Ghitti, pour qui les accusations de pédocriminalité sont forcement des « fausses accusation » enseigne donc cette propagande aux travailleurs sociaux (avec d’autres thèses pro-pédo). Il est aussi l’un des fondateurs du collectif de pères divorcés La #GrueJaune.

      En 2012, le #Dr_Marcel _Rufo a expliqué à une mère désemparée que la grande majorité des enfants sexuellement agressés vont bien. Il bénéficie du soutien de politiques comme #Catherine_Troendlé @C_Troendle (Vice Présidente du Sénat, Sénateur du Haut Rhin, Présidente du groupe d’amitié France-Allemagne) & il est régulièrement auditionné sur la pédocriminalité http://patricjean.blogspot.com/2012/12/rufo-et-la-pedophilie.html

      (...)
      Bref je ne vais pas faire toute la liste des propagandistes pro-pédocriminels d’aujourd’hui. #Matzneff à l’époque était non seulement propagandiste mais aussi prédateur. C’est ça la grande différence avec aujourd’hui : les propagandistes le font surtout à but commercial.

    • En fait, ce post c’est un peu #la_poubelle. J’espère qu’on est toutes et tous ok. Je tiens à vous dire que je suis bien content de vous avoir pas loin. Et que j’espère que ça secoue pas trop (moi j’ai passé un genre de cap chelou mais je fais pas trop le malin en vrai...)

    • Ca me va pour la poubelle @tintin
      C’est sur que ca remue de fouiller là dedans et que ca fait remonter des traumas. J’espère que tu arrive à dormir et à pensé à autre chose et que tu tirera du positif pour toi de toutes ces recherches.

    • Christian Giudicelli.

      Giudicelli n’est pas un romancier à gros tirages, mais ce notable des lettres est bien connu des cénacles parisiens. Le juré Renaudot est un intime de Matzneff, son agent le plus précieux aussi : son « fidèle complice », résume-t-il dans Les Spectres joyeux (2019). Lui-même est membre du comité de lecture de Gallimard.
      (...)
      « Christian est un esthète », commentent ses amis du prix, sans qu’on comprenne bien ce que cela veut dire. Dans les livres du lauréat 2013, il figure souvent sous le surnom « Eight One One » – 811 –, comme un numéro de chambre d’hôtel. Ensemble, « Christian » et « Gabriel » partent souvent en vacances à Manille. Sur la biographie détaillée publiée sur un site « autorisé » tenu par un fan de Matzneff, et supprimé le 30 décembre, on pouvait lire les dates de leurs nombreux séjours communs aux Philippines dans les années 1980. Du « 26 avril-26 mai 1986, voyage à Manille avec Christian Giudicelli ». Matzneff n’a jamais fait mystère du tourisme sexuel qu’il pratique avec de jeunes « gosses » de Manille, âgés de « 11 ou 12 ans ».

      Voir article du monde du 06/01 - https://seenthis.net/messages/819342

    • Autres soutiens de Matzneff cités dans cet article

      L’admirateur de Montherlant a longtemps fréquenté Jean-Marie Le Pen et Alain de Benoist. Mais en ce début des années 2010, une nouvelle génération de droite dure, non plus « païenne » mais catholique, s’interroge. « Le prix Renaudot décerné à un défenseur de la pédophilie, mais que ne pardonnerait-on pas au nom du “talent” ?, s’indigne Le Salon beige, un site qui soutient aujourd’hui Marion Maréchal Le Pen.

      (...)

      Matzneff est un dandy. Il a longtemps vécu dans une chambre de bonne dont le loyer était payé dans les années 1980 par le couple Yves Saint Laurent et Pierre Bergé (qui a été co-actionnaire à titre personnel du groupe Le Monde)

      (...)

      L’Etat aussi sait se montrer généreux. Dès les années 1970, alors que Matzneff s’apprête à publier Les Moins de seize ans, la romancière Lucie Faure, jury du prix Médicis et épouse du président de l’Assemblée nationale appuyée par l’académicien Maurice Rheims, intercèdent pour que l’écrivain touche des « aides à la création » du Centre national du livre (CNL), une émanation du ministère de la culture. « C’est la première fois que l’Etat m’a donné des pépètes », se vante-t-il.

      (...)

      Et en 2002, le ministre de l’époque, Jean-Jacques Aillagon – qui assure « ne pas se souvenir de l’épisode » –, a prié le patron du CNL, Jean-Sébastien Dupuis, de lui obtenir une allocation. Douze mille euros annuels, puis depuis 2013, 6 000 euros.

      (...)

      « FOG », enfin, le président du jury Renaudot 2013, s’accroche et continue d’expliquer que « la pédophilie était très courante au temps des Grecs », mais se déclare « solidaire » de Vanessa Springora.

    • Nouvelle contribution de Finkielkraut à la culture du viol et du pedo-viol.

      Le philosophe Alain Finkielkraut s’est exprimé sur cette histoire sur CNews ce 7 janvier : « il n’y a pas eu de viol puisqu’il y a eu consentement, mais il y a eu en effet détournement de mineur ".
      ...
      Monsieur Finkielkraut nous explique sur LCI que Vanessa Springora, à 14 ans, était « consentante », qu’il ne s’agit « pas de pédophilie » et qu’il ne s’agit « pas d’un viol ». Peu étonnant venant d’un « philosophe » qui en 1977 écrivait avec Pascal Bruckner dans « Le Nouveau Désordre Amoureux » une défense immonde des textes du pédophile Tony Duvert : « Au fond, la Loi ne demande aux amants que ceci : de ne pas faire les enfants ; en d’autres termes, de rester pleinement génitaux. Et inversement : le corps de l’enfant demeure aujourd’hui en Occident le dernier territoire inviolable et privé, l’unanime sanctuaire interdit : droit de cité à toutes les “perversions”, à la rigueur, mais chasse impitoyable à la sexualité enfantine, son exercice, sa convoitise. La subversion, si l’on y croit encore, ce serait de nos jours moins l’homosexualité que la pédérastie, la séduction des “innocents” (d’où le scandale que provoquent les livres de Tony Duvert alors qu’ils devraient stimuler, susciter des vocations, dessiller les yeux). » Notons qu’Alain Finkielkraut a aussi pris la défense de Roman Polanski, le réalisateur, suite à son viol envers une mineure, en disant que sa victime « n’était pas une enfant » car elle « posait pour vogue ». Vomitif.

      Un consentement se doit d’être « libre et éclairé ». Lorsqu’on a, en dessous de 15 ans, on ne possède pas le bagage de connaissances nécessaires, l’expérience, la solidité pour dire « non » face à un adulte envers qui, par essence, on a confiance. Il n’y a pas de consentement face à la perversité d’une contrition imposée par l’adulte, ici Matzneff vis-à-vis de la très jeune Vanessa Springora.

      Pénétrer un(e) mineu(r)e est un viol. Attoucher un(e) mineur(e) est un délit. Non, un enfant et/ou un(e) adolescent(e) ne peut pas, par définition, consentir à une relation sexuelle. Laissez les enfants vivre leur enfance et les adolescent(e)s vivre leur période transitoire vers l’âge d’adulte en toute tranquillité. Monsieur Matzneff, sachez ceci : c’est vomitif d’abuser de son statut d’autorité à des fins de domination, d’emprise sexuelle.

      Parmi plein d’autres clichés (le pédocriminel est « avant tout » un malade à soigner, il a des pulsions irréprésibleuh) il y a cet appel à ? Quoi ?

      En revanche, je ne suis pas pour l’idée de porter plainte quand cela se passe dans le cadre familial. Notamment parce que l’enfant va porter sur ses épaules la responsabilité d’avoir mis un membre de sa famille en prison, ce qui n’est pas évident. Il me semble qu’il est préférable de mettre en place des soins, du coup l’enfant peut se dire que sa parole a permis de soigner quelqu’un plutôt que de le punir.

      #wtf

    • un truc qui me tracasse en passant, y a un lien, autre que d’expression, entre les #ballets_roses des années 50 et les #ballets_bleus évoqués pour parler de l’affaire du Coral (dans un message que je ne retrouve plus) ? Le #coral ce serait, aussi, une affaire de pédoprostitution, avec, cette fois au centre, toute une partie de la gauche intello du début des années 80 ?

    • je pense aussi à #présumés_innocents cette expo au Capc de Bordeaux, où une grosse partie du milieu, avait bien joué aux abruti(e)s, en prenant les gens pour des nazes parce ce qu’ils ne tolèraient pas leurs petits jeux « border line »... J’ai trouvé en premier clic cet article là-dessus :

      De juin à octobre 2000 a lieu une exposition de prestige au CAPC de Bordeaux : Présumés Innocents . Cet événement célèbre le millénaire en rassemblant 200 œuvres de 80 artistes, de tout pays, particulièrement célèbres. Le thème qui les rassemble est l’enfance. Les médias sont unanimes : Bordeaux est une ville dont le rayonnement culturel dépasse les frontières, c’est une référence mondiale dans le milieu de l’art. On y trouve même le zeste de scandale nécessaire à la bonne réussite de ce genre de manifestation : la réaction hostile du maire de Bordeaux, Alain Juppé, qui a néanmoins financé l’exposition mais refuse de l’inaugurer et que ses services culturels l’annoncent en ville sur les affichages municipaux.

      Élitistes contre populistes

      Il faut attendre la rentrée scolaire pour entendre les premières protestations, en particulier de la part des parents d’élèves. Le 24 octobre une plainte est déposée par l’association La Mouette dont l’objet est la lutte contre la pédophilie. En effet, plus de 1500 enfants, de la maternelle aux classes terminales, ont visité l’exposition.

      Les deux chefs d’accusation sont redoutables : Diffusion d’images à caractère pédopornographique et Corruption de mineurs par exposition de documents portant atteinte à la dignité des enfants (vidéos, photos, installations etc.). Vingt œuvres sont incriminées dans le genre de la vidéo de Elke Krystufek : l’artiste se masturbe avec un concombre avant de se coudre le sexe...

      La polémique apparaît dans les journaux. Deux camps s’affrontent. D’un côté les associations plaignantes perçues par les médias de grande diffusion comme une nouvelle forme de populisme , de poujadisme moral. De l’autre, le milieu officiel qui défend sa politique culturelle. Le ministre de la Culture, Jean Jacques Aillagon, vient au secours du directeur du CAPC mis en cause, Henry-Claude Cousseau, respectable haut fonctionnaire aujourd’hui directeur de l’école des Beaux-Arts de Paris.

      Il existe en effet un certain consensus de la part des personnalités éclairées en faveur de ce genre de manifestations... Jusque parmi les ecclésiastiques : Mgr Rouet dans son livre L’Église et l’Art d’avant-garde (Albin Michel, 2002), signale le courage des artistes mis en cause : Loin d’offrir une image idyllique de l’enfance, ils ne baissent pas les yeux devant sa violence... Les artistes tentent de sonder le chaos des pulsions en liberté (p.22). Il regrette l’attitude des associations qui ont porté plainte : Elle s’inscrit dans l’inflation des pratiques répressives exercées aussi bien par le pouvoirs politiques que par certaines associations de défense de la moralité publique (p. 23).

Salinger, William Steig and Robert Anton Wilson. Mailer—who owned several orgone accumulators, including some in the shape of eggs—wrote about Reich enthusiastically in The Village Voice, as a result of which Orgonon became a place of pilgrimage and the orgasm a symbol of liberation.

      Et sur l’influence d’américains aux méthodologies plus que douteuses voir Alfred Kinsey (sur le WP anglais) dont le rapport (1948/1953) a été publié par Daniel Guérin (un des signataires) en 1955 chez Julliard (le même éditeur qui publie le pire de Matzneff sous la direction de son ami #Jacques_Chancel) et glorifié par les sexologues français dont certains seront condamnés pour viols ou pédocriminalités.

      « Bien entendu nous possédions tous en commun une culture sexologique de base dont les travaux les plus notables étaient ceux d’Alfred Kinsey et Pomeroy en 1949 et puis ceux, merveilleux, de William Masters et Virginia Johnson en 1966.

    • wow, bien vu. Je vois bien ça, en carte.

      Moi, là, en littérature, et un peu dans la même époque, j’ai :

      « #Kate_Millett, une grande figure de la pensée contemporaine » de #Dworkin :

      Quand Millett a écrit La politique du mâle #Henry_Miller, #Norman_Mailer et #DH_Lawrence étaient les références de la libération sexuelle. Ces écrivains avait une influence de premier plan sur la génération naissante des années 1960. Il est difficile aujourd’hui d’appréhender l’emprise qu’ils avaient sur l’imagination. Pour la gauche et la #contre_culture naissante, ils étaient les écrivains de la subversion. En fait, ils ont contribué à acculturer une génération dans la conviction que la force et la violence étaient des éléments précieux du sexe. L’analyse de Millett a détruit leur autorité.

    • Oui, c’est la même maison d’édition Julliard mais pas la même direction, joli pied de nez de Springora. Bon, ceci dit, de 1959 à 1992 on retrouve à la tête de Julliard Christian Bourgois (signataire N°xx) même promo que Chirac à Sciences Po, et qui va publier Copi, Glucksmann, Pierret …

      @mad_meg tu aurais une idée de qui est la toile accrochée dans le bureau de Bourgois ?

      Le texte recouvert de peinture est un poème de Ginsberg « On Neal Cassidy’s Ashes » avec des photos des roadtrip de la #beat_generation

    • Pour ce qui est des responsabilités, vite fait, il me semble qu’on peut dire qu’hocquenghem a fait rentrer la pédophilie dans le Fhar, et que les lesbiennes l’ont quitté pour ça. disons pour #1979, après les mouvements homo ont fait le ménage aussi... Mais c’est une peu ce qui me reste de la lecture de « l’histoire de la pédophilie ».

    • Pas trop d’accord avec tes raccourcis @tintin, les lesbiennes quittent le FHAR quand leur nombre et leurs voix surtout, (cf video sur YT où presque aucune femme ne s’exprime) deviennent minoritaires lors des rendez-vous aux Beaux Arts, devenu lieu de débats et aussi de rencontres dans les caves entre mecs.
      Je n’arrive pas encore à appréhender le rôle d’Hocquenghem mais il quitte le FHAR assez tôt, en 1972.
      Concernant les féministes signataires, si je ne m’avance pas de trop, la défense des enfants semble y avoir été reléguée profitant ainsi aux pédocriminels (Il y en a plusieurs dans la pétition qui ont été condamnés par la suite) car liée à la maternité bourgeoise alors honnie.
      Plusieurs historiennes, sociologues, etc ont travaillé sur cette question, merci de citer tes sources, ça facilite les recherches :)

    • merci pour les précisions @touti j’ai mal formulé mon truc... Franchement, je m’y perds total dans ce merdier, mais je découvre plein de choses (genre dworkin là (quelle claque)). Un peu de mal, cependant, à avoir une carte en tête...

    • oui, c’est page 166 : « Guy Hocquenghem joue un rôle central dans ce rapprochement [entre millitant homo et pédo] (...) » ; Pas le temps là de tout recopier. Pour les lesbiennes faut que je revoit. Je vais mieux préparer mon coup, avec citations etc.

    • donc dans « histoire de la pédophilie » de Anne-Claude Ambroise-Rendu, page 166.

      Guy Hocquenghem joue un rôle central dans ce rapprochement [entre millitant homo et pédo] qui, à distance du désir de respectabilité et de l’humanisme d’ #Arcadie_ [fondé par #André_Baudry], revendique une sexualité mécanique celle du "sexe-machine [...] le Futur sexuel n’est pas fondé comme l’ordre répressif de la Nature ; il divise rationnellement un secteur libéré, celui d’un érotisme de plus en plus commercialisé et avoué entre mâles et un secteur sauvegardé, femmes qui se refusent aux étreintes brutales, enfants mis hors d’atteinte des pédérastes (in « Guy Hocquenghem _Prélude , la dérive homosexuelle , Paris, JP Delaye, 1977 p.12 »

    • sinon, outre altantique, en 1992, #John_Irving patauge dans sa merde, à partir de cette « erreur » logique", qui a aussi fait florès en fronce :

      Pornography and the New Puritans - The New York Times
      https://www.nytimes.com/1992/03/29/books/pornography-and-the-new-puritans.html

      the unproven theory that sexually explicit material actually causes sexual crimes.

      Euh... Le principe du #porno, c’est que c’est vrai. C’est pas juste un film, une oeuvre de pure imagination. C’est un film où des gens « baisent » pour de vrai. Je pourrais mal paraphraser Dworkin, mais c’est de vrais anus, de vraie bites etc.

      Le porno ne cause pas de crimes sexuels dans le sens où tous les gens qui regardent du porno ne commettent pas de crime sexuel, mais tous ces gens regardent de vrais crimes sexuels, produit par le porno.

      Le porno produit donc, littéralement, des crimes sexuels. Et par centaines de milliers aujourd’hui...

      Comment est-ce qu’on ne peut pas comprendre ça ? Ou alors le mec n’a jamais vu de porno...

    • permettez que je réponde à ma propre question :

      prouver la réalité d’un postulat (aussi fou soit-il) par tous les amalgames et toutes les confusions possibles, où peuvent se rejoindre allègrement des intellos aux sensibilités inverses, extrême-droite et ultra-gauche, mais avec des pratiques comparables de propagandisme acharné

      http://sisyphe.org/spip.php?article2265

      Cet article parle du SAP, syndrome d’aliénation parentale et de ses soutiens... bazar à cartographier peut-être... c’est de 2006.

    • du sap donc :

      http://sisyphe.org/article.php3?id_article=1364

      M. #Van_Gijseghem n’est pas un psychologue marginal ou isolé. Professeur à l’université de Montréal, il est également expert judiciaire (1) et intervient dans la formation de magistrats, de psychologues, de policiers, de gendarmes et de travailleurs sociaux dans différents pays. En France, où il est entre autre conférencier à l’Ecole Nationale de la Magistrature, un récent rapport du Ministère de la Justice recommandait qu’une méthodologie introduite par Van Gijseghem soit utilisée par les policiers accueillant la parole d’enfants victimes de violences. En Belgique, en pleine affaire Dutroux, des gendarmes ont été formés par ce même Van Gijseghem en matière d’écoute et de recueil de témoignages de victimes de violences. En Suisse, il est intervenu dans la formation de magistrats et de policiers du Canton de Tessin et auprès des policiers du Canton de Neuchâtel.

    • même source :

      Christine Delphy écrivait - dans le Monde Diplomatique de mai 2004 - à propos des lobbies masculinistes : « Le plus souvent, ces groupes de pression agissent de façon souterraine, en formant des ’experts’ qui témoigneront devant les tribunaux, en écrivant des livres de ’psychologie’ où les avocats des hommes violents et des pères incestueux, ainsi que les auteures d’ouvrages ’baquelachiens’, puisent leurs arguments ». Puis, « Ils argumentent volontiers sur de ’fausses allégations’ des enfants ou encore sur le ’syndrome des faux souvenirs’. Autant d’expressions popularisées dans les tribunaux et les écoles de magistrature par les ’experts’ #Hubert_Van_Gijseghem et #Paul_Bensoussan, notamment ».

      par contre, #baquelachiens ?

    • Gardner, l’inventeur du #syndrome_d_aliénation_parentale (SAP), considère par exemple :

      "Il est ici pertinent pour ma théorie que la pédophilie sert des buts procréateurs. Évidemment, la pédophilie ne sert pas ce but de façon immédiate puisque les enfants ne peuvent tomber enceinte ni rendre d’autres enceintes. L’enfant attiré dans des interactions sexuelles dès l’enfance est susceptible de devenir hautement sexualisé et de rechercher activement des expériences sexuelles durant les années précédant la puberté. Un tel enfant « chargé à bloc » est susceptible de devenir plus actif au plan sexuel après la puberté et donc susceptible de transmettre rapidement ses gènes à sa progéniture. [...] L’idéal est donc, du point de vue de l’ADN, que l’enfant soit sexuellement actif très tôt, qu’il ait une enfance hautement sexualisée avant d’entamer sa puberté

    • sur Arcadie, pas mieux que wikipédia pour l’instant :
      https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andr%C3%A9_Baudry

      La revue Arcadie a été lancée en janvier 1954 par André Baudry, #Jacques_de_Ricaumont, #Roger_Peyrefitte et l’auteur et ex-séminariste #André_du_Dognon. #Jean_Cocteau offre un dessin inédit (marqué du mot "liberté" écrit à l’envers) à sa signature pour le premier numéro (tiré à 1 500 exemplaires seulement). Elle fut aussitôt interdite à l’affichage et à la vente aux mineurs (seuls les abonnés pouvaient donc l’acheter). André Baudry fut poursuivi en 1955 pour outrage aux bonnes mœurs et condamné à 400 000 francs d’amende. L’interdiction ne sera levée qu’en 1975, mais la revue n’a jamais cessé de paraitre (11 numéros par an, de janvier 1954 à août 1982, soit 314 exemplaires en tout, dont un numéro double chaque été). « Arcadie », à son apogée, tirera à 40.000 exemplaires destinés à toute la France (et au-delà). Elle avait des liens forts et des échanges avec les revues homosexuelles Der Kreis (Le Cercle, de Suisse) et One (États-Unis)

      une grosse partie de tout ce petit monde MGTOW France ne cesse de se taper dessus mutuellement depuis l’été dernier. L’histoire de leur autodestruction est à mourrir de rire. Ils ont (soit disant) crée un « faux » site BDSM ou il n’y avait que des H dominants et où les F « soumises » devaient payer - « POUR PIÈGER LES FÉMINISTES ».

    “Sarah Palin has written two books, her daughter Bristol has a book coming out – and now Levi Johnston is writing one too. Who would’ve ever guessed that America’s greatest literary dynasty would come out of an igloo?" –Jimmy Kimmel

    "Levi and the publisher already have a title worked out for the book. It’s called ’I Need Money’ by Levi Johnston.” –Jimmy Kimmel

    “It’s a beautifully, lovely spring day. It was so nice down in Washington that President Obama was out on the White House lawn making a kite out of his birth certificate.” –David Letterman

    “Donald Trump said he still wants to look more closely at Obama’s birth certificate to make sure that it’s real. Incidentally, President Obama said the same exact thing about Donald Trump’s hair.” –Jimmy Fallon

    2. Note reads “To be released only at the request of crazy-haired blowhard billionaires”
    1. Fine print at bottom: Not an actual birth certificate

    “Today President Obama released his long-form birth certificate, proving once and for all he was born in this country. But you know, it never ends. Now Republican leaders are saying they want to see the placenta.” –Jay Leno

    “Did you see Donald Trump today? He said, ’I’m very proud of myself because I accomplished something no one else was able to accomplish.’ So basically Trump is taking credit for President Obama proving that everything Trump has been saying for the last year is a bunch of crap.” –Jay Leno

    “After releasing the birth certificate today, he said ’There’s work to be done, there are real problems in this country, and we don’t have time for this silliness.’ Then he and Michelle got on a plane and flew to Chicago to tape an episode of Oprah.” –Jay Leno

    "Next up, we ought to say we don’t believe he’s a man and refuse to let it go until he releases his penis.” –Jimmy Kimmel

    “I’m surprised Donald Trump isn’t investigating whether Hawaii is an official state. A lot of vowels over there and not enough consonants.” –Jimmy Kimmel

    “I suppose I should be expressing some ambivalence about the targeted killing of another human being. And yet — uhhhh, no!” –Jon Stewart

    “What?! Not only did we kill Bin Laden, we killed him in Abottabad! Abottabad sounds like name most New Yorkers would have invented for the fictional place they would have loved to kill Bin Laden.” –Jon Stewart

    "I’m as giddy as a schoolgirl who just shot bin Laden in the eye. Suck my giant American balls, Al Qaeda. Hey Osama, no 3D movies for you in hell.

    “I would like us to kill bin Laden every Sunday night. It makes for a much brighter start to the week.” –Jimmy Kimmel

    “There were a number of odd details that tipped US intelligence officers. The house had no phone or internet connection – it was surrounded by security walls – the occupants didn’t put their trash out, they burned it. And the name on the mailbox was a tipoff too. It said Al Q. Aeda. That was a red flag. The red flag was a red flag too.” –Jimmy Kimmel

    “This is probably the biggest story of the year in the United States. It is the only story on the news. This would be – I’ll tell you what – if you’re a politician looking to have a little public men’s room sex – today was the day!” –Jimmy Kimmel

    “By the way, ’buried at sea’ means ’dumped in the ocean.’ That’s what they did with him. They dumped him in the ocean. Now I won’t feel so guilty about peeing in the water anymore when I go to the beach." –Jimmy Kimmel

    “And so, Osama Bin Laden got his first bath in almost ten years. This could the best shark week ever.” –Jimmy Kimmel

    “Between the death of bin Laden and the royal wedding, it’s an exciting time to be in the commemorative plate business.” –Jimmy Kimmel

    “Donald Trump has had a busy week – the President got sweet revenge last night by making the bin Laden announcement in the middle of ’Celebrity Apprentice.’" –Jimmy Kimmel

    “By the way – I should point out that - on the same night Obama was ordering the Navy to kill Osama Bin Laden, his potential opponent in 2012, Donald Trump was busy firing Playmate of the Month Hope Dworaczyk.” –Jimmy Kimmel

    “President Obama announced that Osama bin Laden has been killed in Pakistan. That’s right, bin Laden is dead — just like the Republicans’ chances in 2012.” –Jimmy Fallon

    “After bin Laden was killed, the FBI updated its most wanted list. So on behalf of everyone here, I just would like to congratulate Lindsay Lohan on her recent promotion.” –Jimmy Fallon

    Jimmy Fallon as Donald Trump: “The message is clear. President Obama is so jealous and so threatened by me he had to hunt down and kill Osama bin Laden right in the middle of my show. Obviously the President planned this whole operation and press conference to cut off my show, so, essentially, I killed Osama bin Laden. So congratulations to me, Donald Trump. You’re welcome.”

    “Osama bin Laden was killed by U.S. forces. Everyone on TV has been really happy. Glenn Beck was crying — and then he found out about Osama.” –Craig Ferguson

    “Politicians on both sides are equally happy. Dick Cheney said he hasn’t been this happy since he saw the YouTube video of the girl throwing puppies into the river.” –Craig Ferguson

    “I think the next election just got a lot easier for President Obama ’cause his response to every question during the debates will be: ’Wait, I forget…Did you kill Osama Bin Laden? Or did I kill Osama Bin Laden. Oh no, it was me, wasn’t it?’” –Craig Ferguson

    “Navy SEALS are very badass hombres. They eat bugs and poop freedom.” –Craig Ferguson

    “Finding bin Laden was like finding a needle in a country that swore it didn’t have needles.” –Stephen Colbert

    ’He was living a half a mile from Pakistan’s version of West Point in a town surrounded by retired ex-military officers. Let me put it in New York City terms. Bin Laden was on 21st and Seventh Avenue; they were on 21st and Ninth Avenue. If the Pakistani military academy were Domino’s, they would have been delivered to bin Laden on foot.’ –Jon Stewart

    “The initial reports said that Osama bin Laden was killed by Navy SEALs, but now it appears that he was killed by actual seals.” –Jimmy Kimmel

    “President Obama has done something that no one else has been able to do. He got Donald Trump so shut up.” –Jay Leno

    “Obama’s even getting a little cocky. Today he held a press conference and said, ’Yeah, I was born in Kenya. What you gonna do about it?’” –Jay Leno

    “Saddam Hussein is dead, and Osama bin Laden is dead. If you’re Moammar Gadhafi, living in exile is starting to sound really good.” –Jay Leno

    7. He did a lot of volunteer work at the JCC
    6. Very quiet, except on rare occasions when Navy SEALs would raid his house and kill him
    5. Having a celebrity in the neighborhood is always good for property values
    4. Olympic-sized camel-shaped pool
    3. The adorable way he’d shout ’Death to weeds!’ when mowing the lawn
    2. At barbecues he made his famous ’Fatwa Franks’

    “Bin Laden was buried at sea. Or as Dick Cheney calls it, ’the ultimate waterboarding.’” –Jay Leno

    Late Night From 05/06

    “Sarah Palin said Obama should stop ’pussyfooting around’ and release the photos. Yes, because the guy who ordered the SEALs into a sovereign country without permission and killed public enemy number one is a pussy, and the woman who quit her job as the governor of a state with no people after half a term and won’t do an interview with anyone but Greta Van Susteren is a bad-ass. Right.” –Bill Maher

    “Stop saying ’we’ got Osama. ’We’ didn’t do anything. ’We’ were watching ’Celebrity Apprentice’ and eating Funions in our sweatpants. Seal Team 6 did the killing, with money we borrowed from Beijing; that our grandchildren will have to pay back. So it was a joint Navy Seals/People’s Bank of China/grandchildren operation.” –Bill Maher

    “They say the Navy Seals had attack dogs with titanium fangs; that they replaced their real teeth with titanium. You know you have a badass black president when even his dogs have a grill.” –Bill Maher

    “Who might be Bin Laden’s successor? If they’re looking for someone with a large following who’s a religious zealot and hates the Jews...Mel Gibson?” –Bill Maher

    “Conspiracy theorists who are claiming that we didn’t really kill bin Laden must be reminded that they didn’t think he did the crime in the first place. Come on, nut jobs, keep your bullshit straight: The towers were brought down in a controlled demolition by George W. Bush to distract attention from Hawaii, where CIA operatives were planting phony birth records so that a Kenyan named Barack Obama could someday rise to power and pretend to take out the guy we pretended took out the towers. And I know that’s true because I just got it in an email from Trump.” –Bill Maher

    “Now that it’s become clear that the Republicans, the fiscally conservative, strong on defense party, are neither fiscally conservative nor strong on defense, they have to tell us what exactly it is they’re good at. Because it’s not defense. 9/11 happened on your watch. And you retaliated by invading the wrong country. And you lost a 10-year game of hide-and-seek with Osama bin Laden. And you’re responsible for running up most of the debt, which, more than anything, makes us weak. You’re supposed to be the party with the killer instinct. But it was a Democrat who put a bomb in Gaddafi’s bedroom and a bullet in bin Laden’s eye like Moe Greene. Raising the question: How many Muslims does a black guy have to kill in one weekend before crackers climb down off his ass?” –Bill Maher

    “Osama Bin Laden’s supporters want to rename the Arabian Sea where his body was dumped Martyr Sea. Really? Martyr Sea? Hiding in your bedroom for six years? How about Chicken of the Sea?” –Jay Leno

    “Donald Trump is furious with President Obama. Killing bin Laden was supposed to be the final task on ’Celebrity Apprentice.’” –Jay Leno

    “Today Hillary Clinton sent Khadafy a sealed note asking him to resign. Don’t send him a sealed note. Send him a note delivered by a Seal.” –Jay Leno

    “Pakistan is still saying they didn’t know bin Laden was hiding there. He wasn’t hiding there. He was living there. Look at these pictures. Here he is working as a crossing guard. Here’s his restaurant, Osama bin Laden’s, downtown, and here he is getting a star on the Islamabad Walk of Fame.” –Jay Leno

    “50 percent of Americans polled said they thought Donald Trump would make a lousy President. Wow! Half said he’d make a lousy President. Well, that never stopped us before.” –David Letterman

    “Apparently, Osama bin Laden was living in a mansion with no phone and no cable for six years. He’d been waiting for six years for the Time-Warner guy to show up.” –David Letterman

    “In the wake of President Obama’s decision to not release pictures of Osama bin Laden’s body, a number of new conspiracy theories are surfacing claiming that bin Laden is not really dead. Which means Barack Obama will go down in history as the first black person ever to have to prove that he killed someone.” –Seth Meyers

    “In the wake of the killing of Osama bin Laden President Obama’s approval rating jumped to 56 percent, his highest in two years. Which shows there is literally nothing he can do to please the other 44 percent.” –Seth Meyers

    “Bill Clinton says he now supports gay marriage. It’s straight marriage he’s not so excited about.” –Craig Ferguson

    “It turns out that Osama bin Laden was living in a mansion with his youngest wife. So if we hadn’t killed him, his oldest wife would have.” –Conan O’Brien

    “First I want to acknowledge that this week we finally vanquished one of the world’s great villains. And I for one am thrilled to say good riddance to Katie Couric.” –Tina Fey, reprising her Sarah Palin impression on SNL

    “The Taliban is now on Twitter. So if they start following you, go hide someplace where no one will find you ... like MySpace or Friendster.” -Jimmy Kimmel

    “Pakistan’s Prime Minister is mad at us for going in and getting Osama bin Laden without giving him a heads up. He has the same right to get mad as a husband mad at his wife because she went into his e-mails and found out he’d been having an affair for 5 years ... with Osama bin Laden.” -Jimmy Kimmel

    "Ron Paul is announcing for President tomorrow. He supports legalizing prostitution and heroin. His campaign slogan is “Let’s Just See What Would Happen.” -Conan O’Brien

    “Moammar Gadhafi made an appearance on television to prove that he is still alive. When he saw this, Larry King said, ’That proves nothing. I died 60 years ago.’” -Conan O’Brien

    “The CIA is going through the stuff they found in Osama bin Laden’s compound, including a diary. I didn’t know he had a diary. That is so sweet. They haven’t read the diary yet because they can’t find the little key to open it up.” -Craig Ferguson

    “Isn’t it odd how history’s greatest monsters have an artistic side? Osama bin Laden was a writer. Hitler was a painter. Justin Bieber is a singer.” -Craig Ferguson

    “President Obama was just ranked 108th in a new list from Golf Digest of the top 150 golfers in the political world. But I hear he’s improving. Last week in Pakistan, he shot two holes in one.” -Jimmy Fallon

    Late Night From 05/13

    “The SEALs recovered an extensive stash of pornography from Bin Laden’s compound. It’s probably not easy just having sex with the same 11 wives all the time. There were interesting titles: ’Debby Does Abbottabad,’ ’Deep Goat,’ ’Bare Ankles 4,’ and ’2 Humps, 1 Camel.’” -Jimmy Fallon

    “Another Republican is about to announce he is running for president. Newt Gingrich is about to announce. Some people say Newt Gingrich may have trouble winning over traditional values voters because he has had three marriages. So as a result, the campaign has announced a new slogan, ’Newt Gingrich, so committed to marriage, he can’t stop doing it.’” -Conan O’Brien

    “President Obama campaign just moved into a 50,000 square foot office in downtown Chicago. Meanwhile, Ron Paul’s campaign landed a sweet kiosk at the mall.” -Jimmy Fallon

    “Joe Biden said that working on the deficit with Republicans is like carpooling to work. In response, everyone who carpools with Biden was like, ’It can’t be that bad.’” -Jimmy Fallon

    “President Obama invited a rapper to the White House on Wednesday. The right-wing feigned outrage machine is apoplectic that the rapper Common was invited to an evening poetry, or as they call it, black-on-black rhyme. Sarah Palin tweeted one of her brain farts. She said, ’Inviting Common to the White House lacked class and decency,’ and that’s why her children are only allowed to make babies while listening to country music.” -Bill Maher

    “Newt Gingrich made it official: he’s in. Not in the presidential race — in a trivia book called ’Whatever Happened to Last Century’s Biggest A**holes?’” -Bill Maher

    “They say the key to Newt Gingrich’s campaign is going to be his third wife, Callista, who used to be the mistress. For six years while he was married to his second wife, she blow him in the car. The theme of their campaign: values. I’m not kidding. Values, also floor mats and wet wipes.” -Bill Maher

    “New rule: you can’t rail against the decadence of the west and also maintain a fairly extensive porn collection. Yes, it turns out 9/11 wasn’t bin Laden’s only masterstroke. Among the titles found in his compound were ’Deep Goat,’ ’Radical Jizzlam,’ ’Barely Visible,’ ’72 Virgins and One Very Exhausted Ron Jeremy, and, of course, ’Yentl.’” -Bill Maher

    “Well, the presidential race is getting interesting. In an effort to clear up his reputation as a flip-flopper, Mitt Romney will give a speech on health care. And then, right afterward, he’ll give a five-minute rebuttal.” -Jay Leno

    “Iran’s intelligence minister claims to have proof that Osama bin Laden was dead before the Navy SEALs found him. Does anyone believe Iran has an intelligence minister? That’s like Pakistan having a truth minister.” -Jay Leno

    “Mitt Romney is having major trouble with endorsements. He keeps getting endorsed by President Obama. They have the same healthcare plan.” -Jay Leno

    “They have found Osama bin Laden’s diary. Some entries: ’Very unhappy with TV reception. Death to Time-Warner.’ ’Three wives, one bathroom, you do the math.’ The final entry: ’Dear Diary, can’t talk now. Someone’s at the door. Hope it’s the Domino’s guy.’” -David Letterman

    “Disney is trademarking the phrase ’SEAL Team 6,’ after the team that took down Osama bin Laden. Yeah, cause when they shot bin Laden, captured his wives and found his porn, I was like, ’This would make a great Disney movie.’” -Jimmy Fallon

    “In a new interview, President Obama said that killing Osama bin Laden does not secure his 2012 re-election. Yeah, that’s been taken care of by the current field of Republicans.” -Jimmy Fallon

    “Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg turned 27 this weekend. At his party it was fun to reconnect with old friends, but then everybody’s parents showed up and made it weird.” -Jimmy Fallon

    “Donald Trump says that he will not run for president. You know why? He can’t find his birth certificate.” -Jay Leno

    “The French head of the International Monetary Fund was arrested in New York for sexually assaulting a hotel maid. Or as the French call it, room service.” -Jay Leno

    "There’s talk of a new “Mad Max” movie, where gas is so expensive people steal and kill to get it. It takes place in the future ... like July." -Jay Leno

    “Porn Identity: Al Jizzera: Dead Man Wanking: Friday the news broke: a stash of pornography was found inside Osama bin Laden’s compound. Even before Navy SEALs shot out his eyes, bin Laden was probably going blind anyway.” -Jon Stewart

    “They found so much porn at Bin Laden’s compound that they’re investigating whether the porn was used to send coded messages. So remember guys, from now on when your lady catches you, you’re not looking at porn, you’re analyzing coded messages. ’Honey, I wasn’t looking at porn. I’m in Al Qaeda.’” -Conan O’Brien

    “Two days after the raid on Osama bin Laden, Disney trademarked the name, ’SEAL Team 6.’ They also renamed their most popular ride, ’It’s a Small World - and We Will Find Where You’re Hiding and Kill You.’” -Conan O’Brien

    “Trump says he wants to spend more time bullying obscure celebrities. That one-man juggernaut Mike Huckabee is not running. The Republicans are really scrambling for a guy to lose to Obama.” -David Letterman

    “Sen. John Kerry is in Pakistan, sending a strong message to the government and the people. The message is, ’We think this is important enough to send John Kerry.’” -David Letterman

    “They found a massive stash of porn in Osama bin Laden’s compound. Right now CIA agents are screening the pornography carefully, frame by frame, looking for clues.” -David Letterman

    “Arnold is already coming up with excuses. He said he was just auditioning to be the next head of the IMF.” -Craig Ferguson

    “You know what’s going to happen. Arnold will check into a sex addiction clinic, and next season the maid will go on ’Dancing with the Stars.’” –Jay Leno

Also, Al Qaeda gave its agents better benefits than Wal-Mart, although at Wal-Mart you get to use your vests more than once.” –Stephen Colbert

    "The Republicans blocked the bill to raise the debt ceiling that was so devious it was actually introduced by Republicans.

    Jokes from NPR’s “Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!”

Maybe been taking a picture of his crotch every hour for a month, to create one of those cool YouTube time lapse videos?” –NPR’s “Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!”

    "Congressman Weiner said the photo leak was a prank, he’s a victim, the picture could be taken out of context? In what possible context would you take this picture? Maybe he meant to send it to his Doctor, with the message, “Okay, it’s been four hours, time to get you involved.” –NPR’s “Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!”

At least Republican Chris Lee was trying to get some action! Republican politicians are man enough to hit that thing. Ensign, Vitter, even when it’s a gay scandal! They’re not tweeting love letters. They’re tearing up an airport bathroom until somebody calls the cops on them!” –Stephen Colbert

    “The narrative of Conservative Victimization is the true genius of what Fox News has accomplished. Any editorial judgment in news, or schools, or movies, that doesn’t favor the conservative view, is elitism and is evidence of liberal bias. Whereas any editorial judgment that FAVORS the conservative view, is evidence of merely fairness and done to protect them from liberal bias. And, if you criticize Fox for this game, guess what that’s evidence of? How right they are about how persecuted they are. It is air tighter than an otters ass…They can’t lose. But you know what this whole ’victim thing’ makes Fox? Well, perhaps this term a friend of mine used once to describe the current presidential administration is most apt: [Cut to clip of Fox News’ ChrisWallace telling Bill O’Reilly: ’They are the biggest bunch of cry babies I have dealt with in my 30 years in Washington.’]” –Jon Stewart

So trust me, it’s not because they have breasts. It’s because they are boobs.”–Bill Maher

    “And when I point out that Sarah Palin is a vainglorious braggart, a liar, a whiner, a professional victim…a know it all, a chiseler, a bully who sells patriotism like a pimp, and the leader of a strange family of inbred weirdoes straight out of The Hills Have Eyes, that’s not sexist. I’m saying it because it’s true, not because it’s true of a woman.” –Bill Maher

    “Michele Bachmann proudly tells the story of how she has no desire to become a tax lawyer, but her husband commanded her to. That’s right, he commanded her to become a tax lawyer, and what are you going to do. It says so right in the bible. She quotes it, ‘wives you are to be submissive to your husbands,’ and I’m the sexist? That’s weird, but you know what’s really weird? Michele Bachmann tells her husband I’ll do anything you want me to do, and his response isn’t let’s have a three way or I want to cover you in Cool Whip. It’s I want you to be a tax lawyer. That is some sick twisted sh*t.”–Bill Maher

  • Le refus du travail dans l’Italie révoltée des années 60-70 | Sortir du capitalisme
    http://sortirducapitalisme.fr/204-le-refus-du-travail-dans-l-italie-revoltee-des-annees-60-70-

    40 ans après l’insurrection de Bologne des 11-12 mars 1977 (et sa reconquête par des chars d’assaut), une histoire du refus du travail dans l’Italie révoltée des années 1960-1970 – avec Oreste Scalzone, protagoniste central de ces années-là. Dans cette émission consacrée à un aspect central des théories critiques et des luttes autonomes de l’Italie révoltée des années 1960-70, Oreste Scalzone nous offre d’abord un aperçu des théories critiques du travail ("refus du travail" et "lutte contre le travail") développées au sein de l’opéraïsme [1re partie, 30 minutes]. Dans une seconde partie, il évoque quelques pratiques de « l’anti-travail » de l’Autonomie italienne ("auto-réductions", grèves des loyers, etc.) et parle de leur vision non-programmatique du communisme [2e partie, 30 minutes].

  • La horde d’or. Italie 1968-1977 | Editions de l’éclat
    http://www.lyber-eclat.net/livres/la-horde-dor

    Livre d’histoires et d’analyses politiques, compilation de documents, tracts, chansons, articles de revues ou manifestes, témoignages à la première personne et au jour le jour d’une révolte, devenue « transformation radicale de la vie quotidienne, utopie, besoin de communisme, révolution sexuelle, lutte armée, etc. », La horde d’or est un ouvrage de grande ampleur qui parcourt l’histoire politique italienne, depuis les prémisses des années 60 jusqu’à la fin des années 70, qui verront s’exténuer les espérances et les jubilations d’une génération « outrageusement » enthousiaste. Ouvrage transgenre ou transversal, La horde d’or permet de combler un « manque d’histoire » de la fin du XXe siècle, et apporte une information de première main et de première importance sur dix années qui ébranlèrent non seulement l’Italie, mais également l’Europe, et dont l’actualité resurgit, près d’un demi-siècle plus tard, dans les mouvements et les luttes du jeune XXIe siècle, pour signifier l’inanité des réponses institutionnelles qui ont été apportées à la crise « créative, politique et existentielle » à laquelle nous sommes confrontés.

  • Encore une merveille


    Les exécuteurs de Shaolin, Hong Xi Guan, Liu Chia-Liang, 1977
    Oui mais, à mon âge, trop de merveilles n’est pas très bon. Que dire de plus ? Peut-être que Jean-Pierre Dionnet pourrait en dire beaucoup plus que moi.
    Je peux dire que ce film respecte ses acteurs qui doivent passer 8 heures par jour à s’entrainer au kung-fu. Les combats sont simplement bien filmés avec aucun sur-découpage dégueulasse d’aujourd’hui. @intempestive si tu vois une version sur youtube, sûrement que le mixage est tout pourri. Moi j’ai chopé un coffret de Ching Siu-Tung et tout était remasterisé.
    Cette barbe blanche est tout à fait séduisante. Et bien sûr ce geste de ce caresser la barbichette comme on se caresse les testicules. A la la c’est merveilleux.
    L’héroïne est aussi une bête en kung-fu. Elle n’est pas le personnage principal mais elle lui apprend beaucoup beaucoup. Les deux sont rapidement amoureux et c’est tout à fait intéressant la position de la femme dans ce film là. Notamment à voir dans leur scène de séduction et leur jeu amoureux. Ils décident de voir lequel des deux est le plus une bête en kung-fu. Elle se met sur le dos, serre les genoux l’un contre l’autre et lui doit les ouvrir. Ca dure longtemps et au final il abandonne, elle a gagné.
    A noté enfin les très beaux enchainements avec le mannequin. Je peux pas en dire plus : j’ai rien compris.

  • Mon film préféré


    Le fond de l’air est rouge, Chris Marker, 1977 réédité et remonté en 2003
    J’avais 20 ans quand je l’ai vu, j’étais en fac de mathématiques et militant aux jeunesses communistes révolutionnaires. J’ai aimé regarder dans ce miroir qu’était ce film et je constatais que je ne comprenais par le quart des images qui sont dedans.
    Aujourd’hui j’en comprend un peu plus. Et surtout depuis j’ai un peu étudié le cinéma. Alors j’aime encore me plonger dans cette pensée en images, ce montage qui pense.
    Aujourd’hui j’en comprends un peu plus mais vraiment pas beaucoup. Il fait exprès Chris. Il n’est pas historien ni journaliste, ce n’est pas rotman qui nous fait générations. Non, lui il est d’abord monteur génial. Des images du monde entier s’enchainent sur des temps différents et parfois il constate que ce sont les mêmes.
    Je conseille tout particulièrement les 5 premières minutes de ce film de 3h. C’est vraiment du grand art.
    Et le texte... Et les voix... Non vraiment, je ne sais pas comment en parler alors je ferme ma gueule.
    Ah bah non bah en fait je l’ai trouvé le début du film et pour allociné sa s’appelle bande annonce. Alors voilà : décrivez-moi ce que ça vous fait en regardant celle-ci s’il vous plait.

  • Plus ça va, moins ça va..., Michel Vianey, 1977
    Putain la photo dégueulasse ! C’est Marie qui m’a donné ce film quand je lui ai dit que Jean-Pierre était un de mes idoles. Bon bah ça y est je sais ce que c’est une comédie de la fin des années 70.
    À part tout ce que l’on pourra reprocher au film, Marielle est absolument merveilleux, il a des répliques qui déchirent. Je crois que j’en ai retenue une. Bah non en fait je l’ai oubliée. Il faudrait que je remate le film et que je note mais vous vous rappelez je dois regarder le flingueur. Bref, c’était cool et puis poétique aussi, ou plutôt ça essaie. Oui c’est ça, ça essaie d’être onirique et barré lorsque par exemple des indiens arrivent au milieu des années 70. Comme si ils avaient voulu pomper du film de Ferreri Touche pas la femme blanche
    Finalement même si j’ai ri devant mon idole, je crois que cette comédie est un peu un nanar.
