About Édouard Drumont

  • Édouard Adolphe Drumont (3 May 1844 – 5 February 1917) was a French journalist and writer.
  • He initiated the Antisemitic League of France in 1889, and was the founder and editor of the newspaper La Libre Parole.
  • After spending years of research, he synthesized three major types of antisemitism.
  • The first type was traditional Catholic attitudes toward the alien "Christ killers" augmented by vehement antipathy toward the French Revolution.
  • The second type was hostility toward capitalism.
  • The third type was so-called scientific racism, based on the argument that races have fixed characteristics, and asserting that Jews have negative characteristics.
  • Drumont's biographer, Grégoire Kauffmann, places Drumont within the counter-revolutionary tradition of Louis Veuillot, Antoine Blanc de Saint-Bonnet, and anti-modern Catholicism.
  • Socialist leader Jean Jaurès stated that "all the ideas and arguments of Drumont were taken from certain clerical opponents of the French Revolution.
