“If only Mussolini was narrated to us” by François Brigneau, self-published book, François Brigneau editions, France, 2006
This very nice essay of fiction (since the characters are not fictitious) gave us the sorrow of the inhuman death of the Duce, someone that the whole world (not only my compatriots) misunderstood. We will try to reverse the misunderstandings that are still circulating today, seventy-four years after his barbaric death. The Great Benito Mussolini was first shot by the dirty communists and then his body hung by the feet. François Brigneau was one of the co-founders of the french National Front in the early 1970s. It was thanks to him that we learned that Mussolini was a Mason and Socialist before becoming a French teacher(in Italy) and then Dictator. We will not really write a presentation of this invigorating book (since it made us want to revive the misunderstood character) but we will draw attention to some forgotten points (perhaps) of his important journey. On page 21 we read: “it is Mussolini who launches in Rome the Pact with four to try to prevent German rearmament”. On page 60 we read: “He was never anti-Semitic in a doctrinal, visceral or religious way”. Eight pages before we read: “We are running against the plutocratic and reactionary democracies of the West” (op.cit.page 52). But the phrase that excited us was when Brigneau says that his line was called Edda since with this quote we could understand that the Duce was a Great Poet since he wanted his family to refer to the Scandinavian Poet Snorri Sturluson and to his epic and fantastic poems. But unfortunately the bloody Italian communists of 1945 trampled and lynched his corpse with very strong and inhuman kicks and his burial was publicly exhibited for this reason. We conclude by telling you that we have also read the Duce novel “The Mistress of the Cardinal”, a novel that can be labeled as “anti-Christian” since the anti-religious parody concerns Christians, not another religion. And to make a contemporary reference to the tragedy of the Grand Duce we will quote on page 12 Luigi Facta (former President of the Ministerial Council) resigns and just after King Emmanuel charges Mussolini to form a government. So he was Not a Dictator ! His biographer RENZO DE FELICE will summarize our article: “Mussolini had two Jewish mistress and not least: Angelica Balabanov and Margherita Sarfati” (in “The reds and the Blacks” editions Georg, Geneva, Switzerland, 1999, page 148).
Mussolini conquered Ethiopia,as we all know. Why not our beloved South Africa that we visited just once?
