We’ve posted in the past about German citizens who have fled the multicultural lunacy in their homeland and escaped to Hungary. The following article from F. de Souche tells the story of French expatriates who have migrated to Central Europe to escape the madness of Modern Multicultural France.

“Identitarian emigrants”: Exodus to the East to rediscover ethnic and cultural homogeneity
January 31, 2017
They are mechanics, surveyors, financiers… Young Frenchmen, some of them claiming to be “identitarian emigrants”, chose to go into exile in Poland or in Hungary, where people appreciate ethnic and cultural homogeneity.
One day in 2014, Romain, a 25-year-old from Lille, decided to leave France. Something did not suit him in this country where he grew up. A desire to go elsewhere, too. Then he took his motorcycle and his musical instruments. The former mechanic rolled aimlessly to the east, before stopping on a whim in Budapest. Today, he says he does not regret this serendipitous choice. He discovered retrospectively what increasingly troubled him in France: his cultural and ethnic diversity. Romain (who did not wish to give his surname) did not have a priori the community fiber. He says it without taboo: “Here, there is a homogeneity and I feel at home.” He is happy to live “with men of European origin, Catholics.”
How many of these young people, like Romain, decided to break away from a country that no longer felt like home? Within the French community that has settled in the countries of the East — and has been steadily growing in recent years — this discourse is becoming more and more frequent and open to the point of no longer being considered a fringe phenomenon. Several thousand French people have gone to live in these countries for a number of years. And among them it is not difficult, by simple word-of-mouth, to come into contact with expatriates who explain, without circumlocution, without embarrassment, and without apparent hatred, either, how this cultural question has germinated in their minds as evidence. Some people even claim to be “identitarian emigrants”.
Grégory Leroy, 31, has decided to live in Poland. He found a more uniform world, more in keeping with his aspirations. “I have traveled extensively, and I have learned that I am not a fan of multicultural countries,” he explains. “I think it’s important to encounter more people who look like us in the street, and this is the case here.” After growing up in Courbevoie (Hauts-de-Seine), he emigrated in 2012, following a tip supplied by one of his brother’s friends, who advised him to invest in Warsaw. He created Hussard, an “antiterrorist training” company that offers “a three-day initiation in the art of open warfare” and features on its website a martial discourse, resolutely in phase with that of the Polish right wing that is now in power.
“Coercive French legislation on legitimate defense and possession of weapons encourages the emergence of ultra-recidivist and ultra-violent delinquency whose extension is the jihadism.”…
Multiculturalism is clearly not the cup of tea for these atypical “expats.” Such is Gabriel (who prefers not to give his name). A native of Haute-Savoie, with a promising career in finance, this 35-year-old young man left France in 2005 and settled for ten years in Budapest. Without equivocation, he associates the quality of life he found there with the “cultural, even ethnic homogeneity” of his adopted country. “If you mix people too much, it does not work,” he says.
What exactly isn’t working in France, according to him? It only struck him, he said, in contrast with his new life, when he came back to his native land: “I realized that the insecurity of everyday life seemed normal to us.” He said he had the same impression every time: “It only takes an hour or two of being present in France to make this feeling of insecurity settle in again. Here, people are more civilized, they do not scream in the subway. They know how to behave.”
Grégory Leroy feels the same with each of his shuttles. In 2014, he was in an Ibis hotel in Courbevoie when a woman was assaulted just down the street. “No one intervened,” he says with regret. He was surprised by this scene, which according to him would be impossible in Poland. He has other anecdotes of this kind, he says. They lead him to an unprecedented conclusion: “Insecurity is a problem closely linked to multiculturalism. I think we steal less when we look alike.” Roman, the 25-year-old from Lille, justifies his Hungarian exile with the same argument. “There is mutual respect here,” he says. “There is less incivility; There might be some, but nothing compared with France.”…
The question of identity was subsequently introduced. In discourse, and sometimes in deeds. Romain, who traveled to Africa, England and Germany, reproached his country for denying attachment to the soil, to the land. “People have been detached from their land,” he said. In Hungary, for example, property tax does not exist. In France, the cost of housing, the desertification of the countryside, city life and the need for mobility in the labor market have created and strengthened individualism. Here I have the impression of being in the France of yesteryear, the one my grandparents told me about. But the young man, whose dream is to acquire a piece of cultivable land in the Hungarian countryside, refuses to be treated as someone nostalgic for the past. He defends himself, referring instead to ecological ideas.
Bruno Guillot also regrets a “lack of roots among the French”. An observation that he extends to the cultural field. According to him, it is the large migratory movements that are problematic. Even in Poland: “Here, there are many Ukrainian or Belarusian immigrants. One might think that it works because they are Slavs, but it doesn’t work! Although his Christian faith enjoins him to accept refugees, he fears especially the danger of too many, worries about the influx of all these migrants who, “unlike the French, have a tribal consciousness.” He fears that from now on, French identity, which is lacking affirmation in his eyes, will be eroded by other, more assertive identities…
Gregory Leroy turned the page on the Parisian scene. “Paris is more beautiful than Warsaw, but there is a heaviness in France, one feels that nothing is possible. Polish energy has definitely made up for this structural gap,” he assures us. To remain in place, Bruno Guillot temporarily renounced his job as a surveyor. He accepted a less exciting job. Then, to enhance the mundane, he plans to return to the Hexagon [France] for a short contract.
The young Catholic now defines himself as a “precursor of militant emigration”. In the near future he wants to create Franco-Polish neighborhoods around Warsaw, where other compatriots who may feel “ethnic malaise” can settle. Paradoxical for a man who deplores all forms of migration… He readily admits the contradiction between his status as a migrant and his identitarian claim. He replies that he takes language courses. He says he can perfectly feel Polish in the long term. For all are saying it: they love their native land, but do not intend to return.
