The ghost of Islam is haunting Europe
Bernard Cazeneuve, French Interior Minister
❝ Virtue is more to be feared than vice, because its excesses are not subject to the regulation of conscience.❞ Adam Smith.
Setting aside the questionable implication that vice is somehow self-limiting, it’s clear that the virtuous autism of European social and political elites is cramped neither by conscience nor by any sense of objective reality. To understand what is at stake, it is necessary to observe facts.
There is a dream-like quality to the long-predicted events now unfolding in Europe, where for two generations elective nomenklatura of both Left and Right have sedulously engineered the social fate of the continent, largely as a sort of orphaned corollary of ‘higher policy’. The outlines of this fate ought now to be clear to everyone.
In France, faces glimpsed in the chancellery windows are increasingly distorted by loathing and mépris crétin (cretinous contempt*) for the substantial and growing minority of French indignados who are voting for the Front national. There is also fear. The representative purveyors of this fear and loathing are Manuel Valls, Prime Minister, and Bernard Cazeneuve, Minister of the Interior. The social policy of the ruling Parti Socialiste is straightforward: to fight the Front national with whatever it takes to destroy it; and to establish Islam as a parallel culture on French soil irreversibly, in harmonious vivre-ensemble with people who identify as Français de souche – having French ancestry. If the people fail to oblige the government by sharing its progressive-internationalist vision, then it is necessary to change the people**. To change, that is, literally: through ever more métissage – miscegenation.
The entwined questions of Islamic terrorism, uncontrolled mass immigration from Africa and the Middle East, and the growing islamization of France, have all been dealt with avec la plus grande fermeté – with the greatest firmness: that is to say, with a combination of omertà, denial, appeasement, and of course routine accusations of racism against cultural ‘reactionaries’. Both the judiciary and the cadre of national newspaper journalists appear content to have been suborned by the government. In the case of the newspapers, large public subventions are involved. Only now, in the aftermath of the atrocity in Saint-Quentin-Fallavier, has the first crack appeared in the policy of omertà and denial, with M. Valls for the first time uttering the hitherto unthinkable phrase, war of civilizations.
Mephistopheles has a way of enforcing contracts, and demands for payment for the internationalist ideal of open borders and vivre-ensemble are now beginning to rain down on France. Italy, Great Britain and Germany, to say nothing of Greece, are at different stages in much the same process of transformation. This is a European drama in which the casualties can be whole nations. The stage has been set for an intensification of Europe’s psychological civil war: a truly bitter conflict that began two generations ago with the colonization of European education systems, first by jacuzzi socialists, then, fatally, by commercialism. There will be no peace for France while the size of the Islamic community and the political pressure it exerts are still increasing, and while committed collaborationists like M. Cazeneuve remain in power.
*mépris crétin ‘cretinous contempt’. A delicious epithet used by Marion Maréchal-Le Pen, in describing the French prime minister’s attitude to the Front national.
**….it is necessary to change the people.
From Bertolt Brecht’s poem, Die Lösung (The Solution)
Nach dem Aufstand des 17. Juni
Ließ der Sekretär des Schriftstellerverbands
In der Stalinallee Flugblätter verteilen
Auf denen zu lesen war, daß das Volk
Das Vertrauen der Regierung verscherzt habe
Und es nur durch verdoppelte Arbeit
Zurückerobern könne. Wäre es da
Nicht doch einfacher, die Regierung
Löste das Volk auf und
Wählte ein anderes?
