Hey Doxa, how did you justify that relationship with the man who turned is back on his country during the war while enjoying all the comforts of home, courtesy of the Nazis and his family ties.
Cousteau was called back to the army in 1939 and captured in 1940, although Brasillach secured his release and he returned to Je suis partout, eventually succeeding Brasillach as political director in 1943. A strong believer in collaboration, he sought internment for the Jews and justified his stance by stating in 1943 that "We are not opportunists. We remain just plain fascists". His other wartime roles included a spell as editor of Paris-Soir in 1941, service on the general secretariat of Milice from 1942 and a series of written works for a variety of journals, including Combats, the militant journal of Henry Charbonneau. He was particularly noted for both his anti-Semitism and his anti-Americanism and in 1942 he produced his most notorious work L'Amérique juive, in which he sought to demonstrate that the United States was controlled by Jews and that these Jews were bent on controlling the world.
In August 1944, he moved to Bad Mergentheim, where he helped run a French newspaper and radio station, before ultimately fleeing to Switzerland. Arrested at Innsbruck, he was condemned to death in November 1946, before the sentence was commuted to life with hard labour.[Cousteau would later justify his collaboration by stating that "I wanted a German victory because it represented the last chance of the white man, while the democracies represented the end of the white man".
By the way, Fuck Doxa
“Your heart was warm and happy
With the lilt of Irish laughter
Every day and in every way
Now forever and ever after."
