Hair Product Company (With Nazi Past) Flakes Out on Giveaway to IDF

Garnier dumps Israel products for IDF. Its parent company, L'Oreal, was owned and operated by Nazi sympathizers during World War II.
Garnier USA disassociated itself from its products being given to female IDF soldiers.

Garnier USA disassociated itself from its products being given to female IDF soldiers.

Now comes Garnier Hair Care Products, bowing and scraping and hoping all the terrorists and their enablers will forgive the company and its parent, L’Oreal Cosmetics, for having been revealed as an entity that somehow, somewhere, allowed its products to be delivered for free to women serving in the Israel Defense Force. Given L’Oreal’s history of enthusiastically supporting Nazi collaboraters and participating in the Arab League Boycott if Israel, it is on a familiar and ugly path.

The message on Garnier’s Facebook page wilts of its own pathetic weight. Garnier posted the following:

Garnier USA is aware of recent activity in social media. It is very important to us that our fans know that “Garnier worldwide promotes peace and harmony and has a strict policy of not getting involved in any conflict or political matter. Garnier was astonished to discover this in social media. After investigation, the hand-out of about 500 products appeared to be part of a one-time local retailer initiative. Garnier disapproves of this initiative managed strictly at local level and is very sorry to have offended some of its fans.”

But wait. There’s more to this story. For while it is true that certain companies fall prey to the heavy-handed intimidation of terrorist supporters and Israel haters, it seems Garnier may have the yellow streak in its genes.

Garnier is a subdivision of L’Oreal, the French cosmetics company. During World War II, L’Oreal supported and hosted the French La Cagoule organization, which was affiliated with the MSR – the Social Revolutionary Movement – in Occupied France.

After the war, the cosmetics company hired members of the MSR, including Jacques Corréze, who became the chief executive officer of L’Oreal’s U.S. operation. The founder of L’Oreal, the chemist Eugène Schueller, was an ardent supporter of the M.S.R., whose avowed mission was “to construct the new Europe in cooperation with National Socialist Germany and all the other European nations liberated, as she has been, from liberal capitalism, Judaism, Bolshevism and Freemasonry,” as well as to promote “severe racial laws to prevent such Jews as remain in France from polluting the French race.”

No wonder L’Oreal’s offspring, Garnier, was so easily intimidated into shouting with great indignation that it had nothing to do with something nice being done for women of the IDF.

And the Nazi-connection to L’Oreal subsidiary Garnier goes further. L’Oreal ‘s owner Andre Bettencourt, a cabinet minister and senator, was on the payroll of the Propaganda Ministry of Nazi Germany.

And as recently as 1995, L’Oreal was fined over a million dollars for cooperating with the Arab League’s Israel boycott.

Maybe this latest wasn’t a boycott L’Oreal, through Garnier, should have embraced. Because this reinforces their history of bowing to genocidal Jew-killers and their enablers.
