The Tour de France is the original and most prestigious of all long distance bike races in the world. You may know that the Tour de France was first run in 1903 by the French sports newspaper ‘L’Auto-Vélo’.
What you probably don’t know is that the magazine ‘L’Auto-Vélo’ was created in 1899 as an opposition publication to the first and then only sports newspaper, ‘Le Vélo’, because of the latter’s support for Dreyfus during the Dreyfus Affair. Captain Alfred Dreyfus – a jew - was accused of selling military secrets to Germany and was initially convicted before famously being sent to the maximum security prison on ‘Devil’s Island’. He was then – following much lobbying and bribery from the jewish community and socialists in France – re-tried and found innocent.
Indeed, when ‘L’Auto-Vélo’s’ cycling journalist, Géo Lefèvre, came up with the Tour de France in an editorial meeting on 20th November 1902, it was to revive the paper's fortunes as an instrument to fight back against the jewish domination of France – as exemplified by the Dreyfus Affair itself – and it was wildly successful with the ardently anti-Semitic and Nationalist ‘L’Auto-Vélo’ putting the philo-Semitic and liberal-leftist ‘Le Vélo’ out of business the year after the advent of the Tour de France in 1904.

This kind of blue-sky thinking and daring is actually what Nationalism needs today. We need new concepts, methods and means to reach out and inspire our people in the fight against international jewry and its gentile myrmidons.
We will either do this or we will fade out of world history with nothing but barely a whimper.
