A Spectre is Haunting Europe

I posted last Monday about the conviction of the French writer Renaud Camus, who was sentenced to two months in prison (suspended) for writing about immigration as the Great Replacement of European peoples.

The following article from the Swedish dissident site Samhällsnytt discusses Mr. Camus’ conviction. Many thanks to LN for the translation:

French intellectual sentenced to prison — for talking about immigration as a population replacement

January 22, 2020

The French writer and political thinker Renaud Camus has been sentenced to two months in prison. This is because he described mass immigration to Europe in terms such as invasion, colonization and population replacement.

Renaud Camus is best known for his book Le Grand Remplacement from 2011 in which he develops his thoughts on an ongoing exchange of people directed by a political elite.

In a court in the French city of Auch, the author was sentenced to prison and €1,800 (about SEK 19,000 [$2,000]) in fines. He says this himself in a post on Twitter…

Renaud Camus also has to pay €1,800 to two “anti-racist” organizations that are the target in the case — SOS Racism and LICRA (International League against Racism and Anti-Semitism).

The crime he is accused of is “a general call for hatred or violence because of origin, ethnicity, nationality, race or religion”.

The speech for which the author has now been sentenced was given in 2017 and can be read in its entirety — translated from French to English.

The video version of Mr. Camus’ speech is here. Below is the English text:

A spectre haunts Europe and the world. It is Replacism

Renaud Camus, President of the CNRE [National Council of European Resistance]

January 15, 2018

Immigration has become invasion, invasion a migratory submersion. France and Europe are a hundred times more colonised, and more seriously so, than they ever colonised themselves. The only irreversible colonisation is a demographic one, the one which takes place via population transfer.

Some people now say there is no colonisation, that the word is not proper, because there is no military conquest. Those people are wrong. The army of conquest are the delinquents large and small, all of those people who make life impossible for Europeans by harming them in every possible way, from the so-called incivilities to terrorism, which is in fact nothing but an extension of the rest. All the perpetrators of terrorist attacks launched their career in the violation of common law. Moreover, there are no terrorists. There is an Occupier who, from time to time, executes a few hostages, as occupiers have always done. I call occupiers all those who declare themselves to be such, or behave as such.

The change in people, ethnic substitution, the Great Replacement, is by far the most important event in the history of our country since it has existed, because, with another people, the history, if it continues, will no longer be the history of France. France has always marvellously assimilated individuals who wanted to be assimilated. It cannot — it simply cannot — assimilate peoples, much less peoples who are hostile, demanding, even hateful and conquering. It requires a peerless form of vanity and complete ignorance of what a people is to think that with a changed population, another people, France would still be France. In the present situation, all words are liars but the most mendacious of all is “French”. There are no “French” jihadists, for example. If they are jihadists then they are not French.

To believe that there are only French people in France is a complete illusion. There are invaders and invaded, colonisers and colonised, occupiers and the occupied.

Durka Durka Mohammed Jihad!

The following video shows a devotee of the Religion of Peace expressing his ire at a kafir who evidently said something derogatory about Mohammed Pbuh. I don’t know anything further, except that the fellow is probably in Germany, since he is speaking in German.

The most entertaining part is when the offended believer beats his chest with his fists like a gorilla. Miss Piggy calls this act the “Full Durka Retard”.

Dore Gold Speaks About Jew-Hatred in Europe

Dore Gold is an Israeli diplomat, a former ambassador who is currently the President of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs.

The following video was recorded during the same event in Italy at which Matteo Salvini spoke. In it Mr. Dore discusses Jew-hatred in Europe, and also the threat to Israel posed by Iran. He is speaking in English, but the Italian voice-over in the video all but obliterates the audio of his remarks.

Matteo Salvini’s Complete Speech on Israel and Jew-Hatred

On Monday I posted an excerpt from a speech about Jew-hatred given in the Italian Senate by former Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini. The video below shows the entirety of Mr. Salvini’s remarks.

The full text hasn’t completely assuaged my reservations about outlawing opposition to the existence of the State of Israel. I can (grudgingly) admit to a very narrow window of necessity to criminalize any interference in the execution of a sovereign state’s foreign policy as it pertains to Israel — but that’s it. And even that gives me First Amendment heartburn.

In any case, the complete speech is now available, and you can judge for yourselves. Many thanks to FouseSquawk for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Who is Alma Zadic?

Last year’s snap election in Austria confirmed my assessment of the character of Chancellor Sebastian “Boy” Kurz: he is an unprincipled opportunist who will tack in whatever political direction is required to keep his career sailing towards greater power and control.

Prior to last September Mr. Kurz had presided over a coalition government which included his party, the ÖVP (Österreichische Volkspartei, Austrian People’s Party) and the “far-right” FPÖ (Freiheitliche Partei Österreichs, Austrian Freedom Party) led by Heinz-Christian Strache. Unfortunately for both men, Mr. Strache’s “Ibiza scandal” brought down the government and forced a snap election.

When the smoke cleared after the election, Sebastian Kurz remained top dog in the Austrian political scene. The only difference is that now he leads a coalition with the “far-left” Greens. In other words, he’s willing to do whatever it takes to stay in power.

Part of the ÖVP’s New Green Deal involved installing a Muslima named Alma Zadic as justice minister. In the essay below Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff provides an overview of Ms. Zadic in her new political role. For readers who are interested, Elisabeth has also written two pieces at Gatestone on the new government, “The Austrian People’s Party and the Greens — A Successful Coalition for the Future?” and “Austrian Coalition Agreement: The ‘Road to Serfdom’”.

Who is Alma Zadic?

by Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff

Austria’s new minister of justice, the pretty, smart thirty-something Alma Zadic, currently occupies the center of attention in Austria, that is, in Austrian mainstream media. She is known for her outspokenness with regard to “online hatred”, and she has been turned into the poster girl for the fight against “online hate”, calling for and looking to implement strict measures to eradicate this particularly nasty form of hatred. She needs to look no further than Germany, where the previous minister of justice and current foreign minister Heiko Maas has already paved the way for a law that allows police to raid the homes of Facebook users in the middle of the night simply for voicing an opinion and not being polite enough about it.

Who is Alma Zadic?

In a recent interview, Alma Zadic said she was born in Tuzla during the Bosnian war and fled together with her brother and her parents to Austria. Her father arrived in Austria in 1992 and was reunited with his family in 1994, when she and her brother and her mother left Tuzla in a UN convoy. Zadic says she was traumatized by these events and does not remember most of what happened prior to entering school in Austrian at the age of 10. She did not feel welcome in her first school, mostly because she did not speak German yet; only when she switched to a school with a higher proportion of foreigners did she feel accepted and supported. Zadic reports that she was subjected to racism as a young girl and often shed secret tears.

Nevertheless, Zadic was able to take advantage of Austria’s excellent education system by finishing school, graduating from law school, gaining practical experience in a place like the Catholic university in Viacenza, Italy, and a postgraduate degree at Columbia University. This was complemented by traineeships at the International Organization of Migration as well as the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in The Hague. She practiced law until she was elected a member of the Austrian parliament in 2017 for the far-left “Liste Pilz”, which she left for the Greens when re-election chances diminished for the 2019 elections.

Tommy Robinson in Copenhagen

As you all know by now, last week Tommy Robinson received the prestigious Sappho Award from the Danish Free Press Society in Copenhagen.

The full speech given by Tommy after receiving the award is embedded below. But first, there’s an interview with Tommy from the Danish MSM — an antagonistic one, of course; how could it be otherwise?

Many thanks to Tania Groth for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling (the transcript at the bottom of this post only includes the Danish portion at the beginning, and not the English-language exchanges in the interview):

Below is Tommy’s entire speech, as posted on the YouTube channel for the Free Press Society. Now that they’ve uploaded more than an hour of Tommy Robinson, how long do you think it will take before their channel is yanked?

By the way — I feel compelled to point out that in his speech Tommy made extensive use of Tania’s translation of a Danish TV clip, which was subtitled by Vlad and posted here last September. It’s good to have been of service to the cause:

Matteo Salvini Speaks Out Against Jew-Hatred

I have a high regard for Matteo Salvini, the former Italian Interior Minister and the leader of the Lega. However, in the following video (which is an excerpt from a speech given on January 16 in the Italian Senate) there is a significant point on which I disagree with him.

Among other things, Mr. Salvini puts forward the idea that it should be against the law to “oppose the existence of the State of Israel as the home of the Jewish people”. There are several reasons why I find this idea repugnant.

Firstly, as far as I know, the only such laws being proposed concern the Jewish people and Israel. I don’t think anyone wants to criminalize, say, opposition to the creation of Kurdistan as a homeland for the Kurds. And there are so many others — Frisia, the Sami, the Navajo, Tibet, Chechnya, and Baluchistan, just to name a few. Should we pass laws against opposition to the creation (or re-establishment) of homelands for all those peoples? If not, how can we pass laws against opposing the State of Israel and still keep any semblance of fairness?

Secondly, as a dyed-in-the-wool American I have a deep loathing for any legal restrictions on speech. I’m willing to concede that it may be a good idea to outlaw explicit, direct, and immediate incitement to violence, but that’s about it. I find Jew-hatred to be vile, but I think Jew-haters should be able to express their vitriol whenever they want without legal hindrance.

This video is a brief segment from a much longer speech. Vlad thinks a complete transcript might show that Mr. Salvini only intends to criminalize organizations that attempt to interfere with Italian foreign policy concerning the sovereign State of Israel. If that turns out to be the case, then it’s a somewhat different matter. But for the nonce all we have is what you see below.

Many thanks to FouseSquawk for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

Below is an interview with Mr. Salvini on the same topic from La Stampa, also translated by FouseSquawk:

Salvini: “Anti-Semitism in Italy? It’s the fault of Muslim immigrants”

Ex-minister of Interior: “With me as prime minister, Jerusalem will be recognized as capital of Israel”

Tel Aviv: If he becomes prime minister, Matteo Salvini will recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. That is what the secretary of the Lega said in an interview today with the newspaper Israel Ha-Yoom, in which he called on the EU to ban BDS, the boycott movement against Israel. A few days after the Senate conference on anti-Semitism, Salvini has reiterated to the newspaper — considered close to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu — that the Lega has no ties with political organizations like Casa Pound, Forza Nuova and Fiamma, which are defined by the newspaper as “anti-Semitic.”

To a question about the resurgence of anti-Semitism in Europe, which will be discussed January 22-23 on the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, Salvini said, “In my opinion, this has to do with the strengthening of extremism and Islamic fanaticism in recent years. It is very important to stress,” he added, “that this is connected to the fact that certain elements in the academic world and the media are mobilized against Israel and they create a hatred towards Israel in order to justify anti-Semitism.”

“Currently, the massive presence of immigrants coming from Muslim countries,” he continued after also recalling the existence of minor political Nazi and communist political movements, contributes to the spread of anti-Semitism also in Italy. “There is,” he complained, “an anti-Semitism on the extreme right and the extreme left. We think of Jeremy Corbyn or leftist activists in Germany who don’t want to be like the Nazis, yet they are found boycotting Israeli products.” To a question on the relations of the Lega with “anti-Semitic political groups”, Salvini answered that “we have no connections with those organizations. In the elections, parties like Casa Pound, Forza Nuova, and Fiamma come out against us.” This shows “we have no ties to them.”

Fascism is Alive and Doing Very Well

Our Dutch correspondent H. Numan sends an overview of the current political situation in the Netherlands, and also the rest of the West.

Fascism is alive and doing very well

by H. Numan

It is very much alive, and thriving. In both the USA and the EU. It is not a lot different from the past, but they have learned many lessons. One of them is that uniforms and flags are out. The current uniforms are either tailored suits (Obama, Clinton) or filthy clothing and an unwashed appearance (Michael Moore). That supposedly gives them a workman’s appearance, or so they like to think. Sometimes they combine a tailored suit with a ragged appearance (Bernie Sanders). In the EU it’s more tailored suits if they work in the higher echelons of the EU. However, the really hardcore socialists wear filthy clothing as a badge of honor. It represents the working men they don’t represent.

Today very few people know that national socialists are just another branch of socialism. They lack the ‘inter prefix’. That’s all. Hitler was a socialist. He admired Mussolini, who also was a socialist. Mussolini was congratulated by Lenin himself when he took over the Italian government. A lot of Nazis and Fascists admired the Roosevelt administration. The feelings were mutual: the US Democrats of the day admired the Nazis and the Fascists. Hitler was particularly impressed by the racial policies of the Democrat party and its Jim Crow laws. He based his Nuremberg laws on those laws. Eugenics were thought up by Democrats, and ‘improved’ by the Nazis. Hitler was Man of the Year 1938 in Time Magazine. On the other side of the pond Mussolini was greatly admired as the guy who made the trains run on time. Socialism really works, and it rules!

Then came World War Two. Which was half-lost by socialism. The then-socialist nations of Germany and Italy were taken over by democracy; that was a win. But one-third of Germany and Eastern Europe was taken over by socialism. That was a severe loss. The socialists, in particular the US Democrats, had to dump (and dumb) their previous association with their old comrades. Admittedly, socialists didn’t know exactly what was going on in the concentration camps. Nobody outside Germany did. That’s not an excuse, mind you. Because the existence of concentration camps was common knowledge.

It was also well known those camps were horrible. What was not known was the scale of the horrors. Or that many were actually extermination camps. Socialists have no problem at all with camps. The USSR had them. China still has them. Those in North Korea are probably a bit worse than German concentration camps. I’m pretty sure Venezuela also has their never-return camps. All socialists states have them. They can’t live without camps. Even today. Some Bernie Sanders staffers (not adherents!) insinuated that camps will have to be set up for Trump supporters after the 2020 elections. Concentration camps are like smoking: highly addictive for socialists, and it’s difficult to kick the habit.

I specifically say “staffer”, because that is significant. If a rank-and-file socialist yearns for camps to lock up Trump supporters, well. Nothing to worry about. Lots of people do that. On both sides of the fence. But when one of Sanders’ ranking staffers says it, that is almost policy. Especially if he is not rebuked by his boss for it.

Is there a difference between national socialism, as practiced by Hitler and international socialism as practiced by Clinton, Sanders and the Euro socialists? Of course. Lots of differences. Bernie has a crummy haircut, for example. And modern socialists don’t run camps yet. But they will, eventually. Because socialism cannot work without concentration re-education camps.

They have changed their strategy seriously. At this moment the media, the courts and most of the government are firmly in progressive control. So much so that they can allow a few dissidents to speak their minds. In America you have conservative broadcasters and judges. In Europe hardly any. In The Netherlands I know of none. Dissidents are not officially harassed, but that most certainly does happen, unofficially.

For example, Gregorius Nekschot (pseudonym; Gregorius Shot-in-the-neck) drew cartoons that are far more offensive then the Charlie Hebdo and Danish cartoons combined. Have a look, and draw your own conclusions. The cartoon riots were simply a tryout to see if they could get away with it. (They could.) If they ignored the Nekschot cartoons but started rioting over the Danish cartoons, you know it was a provocation.

Now, Gregorius was arrested in the middle of the night by a ten-man heavily armed SWAT team. Thoroughly questioned. Where the police gleefully told him: now you are no longer anonymous. They now know who you are. Have a nice life! After that and a lot of public outcry, they let him go. There was no need to lock him up anymore. He had learned his lesson. Gregorius stopped drawing cartoons. At this moment he is back in the saddle drawing cartoons, after many years of silence.
