A doctor who called for ethnic minorities to rape female Front National (FN) voters so as to bring France “multicoloured descendants” and “kill right wing poison in the egg” has quit work after a ruling by the Order of Physicians.
After publishing a post entitled “Impregnate the female of the FN” in December 2015, Thierry Lecoquierre was taken in for police questioning, and the doctor was subjected to a ‘reminder of the law’ by a prosecutor for “incitement to commit a crime”.
“Since [right wing women] are part of the recipe for crossbreeding their own pale race, let’s use it against her side. Let us sexually overcome these stupid, brainless women without hesitation, for the survival of a smiling humanity.
“For the far right, ‘France is for the French’ types … let’s make curly[-haired] this frightened France which terrorises ‘otherness’,” he wrote in the post, which was published on L’Obs Le Plus.
It was the ruling of the disciplinary chamber of the Upper Normandy Order of Physicians that prompted Lecoquierre to sell his surgery and quit work, he told the Daily Doctor this week.
The GP received a penalty of one year’s suspension, for breach of ethical obligations, a sanction he described as: “Terrible for me, for my family, for my patients and for general medicine.”
The Order ruled that his post contained “remarks which were filthy, vile and degrading to the image of women”, and “incited the rape of female FN members”.
He has appealed the decision, which suspended the application of the sentence, but likened waiting for its outcome to a “sword of Damocles”.
Branding the judgment “extremely harsh”, Lecoquierre said the post was satire, written “in the spirit of Charlie Hebdo”.
“I did not think for a moment that there was any real incitement to rape. I regret the affair, of course, but I do not regret having defended family planning.”
In his L’Obs Le Plus piece urging ethnic minorities to impregnate FN supporters, the doctor wrote: “Refusing the advances of family planning, every pregnancy will result in a little half-breed, a mongrel, an artist that she will eventually come to love.”
“Blacks, Negroes, North Africans, Jews, leftists, gipsies, disabled, Freemasons and even my gay friends, in solidarity: bring up your hard [penises]! Let our consciences sleep under the pillow, and jump the right-wing tail that’s on offer.
“Hail to a vast altruistic copulation. Provide multicoloured descendants to the sinking country of France.
“With one goal: kill the [right wing] poison in the egg.”
Having appealed the Order’s ruling, the application of Lecoquierre’s suspension has been delayed until the council reaches a new decision, but said “being charged with incitement to rape” made him feel unable to continue work.
“I have received massive support from my patients,” said the doctor, who claims to have received “dozens and dozens of letters, sometimes very touching” from patients, politicians, and strangers wishing him goodwill in light of the case.
The 58-year-old is “pinning his hopes” to the appeal, and a more lenient ruling could see him change his mind and return to work as a GP, according to the Daily Doctor, which writes that the affair has been: “A heartbreak for this man who says he has been passionate about general medicine since his teenage years, and who has devoted to it nearly thirty years of his life.”
