Algerian blogger known as Toufik.Dz weighed in on a controversy raging in the Algerian media around the casting of Gérard Depardieu as Husein Dey, the last Ottoman provincial ruler in the Regency of Algiers, in a new movie titled "Ahmed Bey." Calling Depardieu "that homosexual, French Zionist actor," Toufik.Dz said that instead of casting an Algerian to play the role of one of Algeria's "greatest men," they chose Depardieu, who has been accused of rape in France. It is part of a "fierce campaign to turn our children into a generation of homosexuals and sissies," he said, complaining that "the message they want to convey... is that in Algeria, homosexuals have rights." He posted the video on his YouTube channel on September 6, 2018.
Following are excerpts:
Algerian Blogger Toufik.Dz: Brothers, I wanted to talk to you about something you've heard – the issue of that homosexual, French Zionist actor [Gérard] Depardieu. They brought him to play the role of a historical figure [Husein Dey] in a film. In all honesty, I am at a loss for words.
That actor, you should know, has been accused of rape in France. People say that he has fled from the French justice system. He has films that are offensive to public modesty. You may have seen pictures of him posted on social media. If only they had brought us an actor who is a little cleaner. The Algerians are not barren. They are very fertile. In Algeria, there are great actors. The [government] didn't want to use them, so they got us that homosexual, that sissy, to play the role of one of Algeria's greatest men. It is a historical film. My question is: Why did they bring us this actor in particular? Even before they brought us this actor, they peddled homosexual and sissy actors on their gutter TV channels. They would parade them on TV, and present them to the youth as if those homosexuals are normal people just like them. Now they have brought us that Zionist homosexual to play the role of a historical figure. They want to corrupt this generation and turn it into a generation of homosexuals. The message they want to convey by bringing this actor is that in Algeria, homosexuals have rights. They want to tell the European countries that the young people who come asking for humanitarian asylum, on the grounds that they are homosexual… They want to tell those countries that in Algeria, homosexuals have rights. They want to say that the Algerian public has no problem with homosexuals. This is the message. Or maybe they want to tell the young generation that our historical national figures were homosexuals.
This government is the enemy of the people. This government is the enemy of our moral values.
I wanted to ask the Algerians to look out for their children. There is a fierce campaign to turn our children into a generation of homosexuals and sissies. Even on social media, I see them peddling homosexuals. They present these homosexuals as if they are defending our human rights. Do I need a homosexual to defend my human rights? Do I need homosexuals to defend me?
