Brigitte Bardot Speaks Out in Support of the Yellow Vests

Men of a certain age will recall Brigitte Bardot as a sex siren par excellence in French cinema during the 1960s. In later years Ms. Bardot took up animal rights as her cause, and then resistance to mass immigration into France. The latter activism has caused her to be prosecuted several times.

In the following pair of videos Ms. Bardot shows her support for the Yellow Vest protesters by donning a yellow vest and speaking to the press.

Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translations, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling.

  1. It is a sign of how far western civilization has fallen that defending French culture and French citizens from the depredations of savage animals should be considered controversial.

    • I agree. I can’t believe it. I’m always posting about Peter Mayle and his oeuvre that exists for the sole purpose of celebrating all things French. He won a Legion d’Honneur for his efforts. You may or may not like his work, but do we now place it in the category of myth? Of fantasy?

      Anyway, kudos to Bebe! I have two books celebrating her extraordinary looks (and rather racy life). My only question is how she managed to live so long smoking like she does.

  2. I am a man “d’une certaine âge” and can testify that she made her reputation on her looks, which were stupendous. Since then she has made a second reputation on standing up for her principles. Though I don’t agree with all of them, I admire her taking part in the political dialogue.

  3. Spot on! It’s totally evil and sickening.

    How french policeman have been turned into Gestapo to kill and maim there own people.

    I believe Macron will be killed, along with Merkel, Verhofs[tadt], de Maziere, many of this communist gang of butchers eventually are going be murdered.

    I hope it’s within my life span to bear witness to it.

    Europe is fighting now for its very life, yet these communists still are sitting in Brussels, Berlin. I don’t get it.

    The film, “The Day of the Jackal” seems to be a fitting de ju vu, movie,

    Edward Fox is still alive, he must be wondering…

    May God save us all from these communist socialist murderers!!!!
