Jean-Marie Le Pen (born 20 June 1928) is a French nationalist who served as President of the National Front, now the National Rally, from 1972 to 2011.

In 1997 Jean-Marie Le Pen was cited in a Western Goals Institute leaflet circulated to mainstream UK conservatives stating "millions of unassimable Black and Asian immigrants are NOT British." The Institute added that "the time has come to embark upon an ambitious, well-funded and humane repatriation programme of all those non-British, non-European people who have come, or were born here, say, since 1960. They must adopt the citizenship of their and their families’ countries of origin."[1]

Le Pen is stated to have expressed certain skepticisms regarding the Holocaust, Holocaust uniqueness, and the politically correct view on the French State/German World War II occupation and has been involved in related legal cases, such as for alleged "Holocaust denial". As a result, he was expelled from the party, now led by his daughter Marine Le Pen, in 2015. He then founded the Comités Jeanne party.
