In 1973, French author Jean Raspail published his controversial and remarkably prescient novel, The Camp of the Saints, which became a bestseller. It described how the Third World burst its banks and how its people headed, en masse, towards Europe – a civilisation of milk and honey. The immigrants had no intention to assimilate but wanted to avail themselves of the higher living standards Europe offered.
Over 40 years later, the nations that comprise Europe have succumbed to massive and relentless immigration. Their peoples’ mental defence mechanisms have been eroded and disarmed by remorseless propaganda, spewed out by the liberal-left mass media, the political establishment, the trades union movement and academia. The bulk of the Western population has lost its ability to defend its interests, culture, heritage and identity. This has never before occurred in history. The population has, in effect, allowed the mass media to do their thinking for them.
So serious has the problem become that, long before the end of the current century, there will be no Western European nation whose indigenous people have not become reduced to minority status, displaced and replaced by those from the Third World.
The implications may be summarised in the simple truism that distinctive cultures come from distinctive peoples.
Raspail’s brilliant masterpiece is being fulfilled in reality.
As wave after wave of migrants hit Europe’s southern nations, with many tearing up their papers, claiming they are from Syria and heading to the more prosperous North, a recent article noted: “Outside Vienna station, thousands of supporters of the migrants chanted (in the manner Raspail’s book predicted): “Refugees are welcome here.””
What is wrong with our people? One could never have made this up even 20 years ago – albeit a small minority such as Raspail and others (including the author) saw this coming.
One answer to the question, posed above, becomes immediately apparent when it is appreciated how the mainstream media focuses, deliberately and consistently, on isolated individual stories of suffering, hardship and distress – often cases involving children. Never does the media focus on criminality or the consequences for the host communities of immigration (usually working class areas but now increasingly middle class locations too): muggings, rapes, knifings, drug dealings, prostitution rackets, money-laundering, gang warfare, gun-running and so on (quite apart from wage debasement and housing shortages).
How easy it is to control the ‘sheople’, when you run the media.
The people of Western Europe intuitively know that our Western Christian civilisation, as our ancestors constructed it over the centuries, is in its end game. They have been cowed by years of political-correctness – social Marxism – so well described by George Orwell in his literary and prescient masterpiece ‘1984’.
And yet the overwhelming bulk of the population does not support mass immigration and nor does it subscribe to the media’s view of ‘cultural enrichment’ or economic necessity. This in turn explains the sociological phenomenon known as ‘white flight’, which occurs as the indigenous population migrates from city locations, which then become immigrant enclaves. Those who flee, to seek security amongst their own kind, display another phenomenon, described by George Orwell as ‘doublethink’ or ‘blackwhite’, where two contradictory beliefs are held simultaneously and where the culprit censors his own thoughts, usually because he has become indoctrinated and lacks the courage to resist the pressures within the system. That same person will therefore continue to vote for the political parties that have caused the difficulty in the first place, regardless of the longer term prospects for his children.
A recent correspondent asked the question:
“Why aren’t any political groups standing up to this rotten, spineless Government? The first duty of any government is the safety of the people and we are now actually being invaded, our holiday makers are threatened by mobs in Calais and Euro Star trains halted because migrants are just walking through the Tunnel! Most of the so-called migrants are hardly terrified asylum-seekers when they can afford thousands to pay traffickers or even fly to Sweden then to travel down to Germany. So much for remembering the Battle of Britain ‘Few’ when we are actually even now being invaded (and have been of course for many years). Not a squeak of protest from any political party (including Ukip) as far as I can see.”
Answer: because the governments of Europe, in conjunction with the EU, want this to happen. Their desire is the extirpation of European nation states, to be replaced by international governance, international agencies, NGOs, corporate globalism and what Peter Mandelson once described as the post-democratic age. Nation states are the product of distinctive peoples. When distinctive peoples are deliberately shorn of their identities and reduced to minority status in their own ancestral homelands, then their respective nation states cease to exist in anything other than history.
Last weekend in London there occurred the annual Notting Hill Carnival, once described by decadent politician William Hague as one of Britain’s greatest cultural events. Its yearly presence provides another example of both the ‘enrichment’ and cost to the host population of immigration, rarely discussed in the media or analysed by the unthinking population.
At last week’s event, 7000 policemen were on duty and there were 407 arrests. By contrast, the author of this article recently attended the annual CLA Game Fair in Yorkshire. With a footfall of over 1/4m people over three days, he did not see one policeman. He was unaware of any arrests. This was an event of those almost exclusively indigenous to these islands, whose attendees have yet to become culturally enriched.
In a recent interview, Raspail stated, unwittingly depicting ‘blackwhite’: “The supporters of immigration are not more charitable than I. There probably isn’t a single one who intends to welcome one of these unfortunates into his home.”
At an election hustings earlier this year, a candidate from the pro-Afro/Asian immigration party, Ukip, stated that the UK was doing insufficient to accommodate refugees from Syria. The author heckled him, asking how many he, personally, would accommodate. There was a deathly silence.
