"A Demographic Tsunami"
This article from Joachim Véliocas' website Islamisation focuses on Eric Zemmour, a rarity among rarities: a journalist who speaks openly about Islam, race, immigration, the harmful consequences of the feminist movement, and other taboo subjects. Zemmour, who writes for Le Figaro, also appears regularly on French television where he often engages his adversaries in heated dialogue. In a recent interview in the monthly magazine Le Choc du Mois, not available online, Zemmour spoke of immigration:
Eric Zemmour, questioned exclusively on the phenomenon of migrations and their consequences, was not afraid to affirm: "What is happening is a demographic tsunami." He also revealed the confidential remarks of a minister, unnamed, who confided in him that "We are witnessing the end of the Roman Empire."
Eric Zemmour related the substance of his confrontation with Brice Hortefeux, Minister of Immigration and National Identity. Hortefeux having renounced any thought of assimilating the immigrant population to French culture, now favors instead integration, which means preserving one's native culture. To which Zemmour retorted angrily: "You are not doing your job. You are ashamed of your ministry!"
In addition, Zemmour declared himself in agreement with a quote from General de Gaulle:
"It is good that there are yellow, black and brown Frenchmen. They show that France is open to all races and that her mission is universal. But on the condition that they remain a small minority. Otherwise, France would not be France. We are above all a European people of the white race, of Greco-Latin culture, and of the Christian religion (...) Do you believe that the French body can absorb ten million Muslims, who will perhaps become 20 million tomorrow and 40 million after that? If we allow integration, if all the Arabs and Berbers of Algeria were considered as Frenchmen, what would prevent them from coming and settling on the continent where the standard of living is so much higher? My village would no longer be called Colombey-les-Deux-Eglises, but Colombey-les-Deux-Mosquées!".
Note: These famous words were uttered by de Gaulle in 1959.
Note too that Zemmour, born in Paris, is from a family of Jewish Berbers who left Algeria after the Algerian war. Berbers, many of whom refused to convert to Islam, remain opposed to the conquering ideology.
At this point I have no idea how many Jewish Berbers (if any) remain in Algeria. I know there is a Christian Berber population, often oppressed by the Algerian authorities.
The French make an important distinction between assimilation and integration, two words that we use rather loosely in America. For them "integration" means that a foreign population has settled on French soil, but remains separate from the dominant population. This foreign population often lives by its own laws, in its own ghettoes, and yet expects full financial support from the French State. In other words, as oxymoronic as it sounds, "integration" means "segregation." "Assimilation" on the other hand refers to the absorption into French society of a foreign population, either through the traditional "pull-yourself-up-by-the bootstraps" method and the adoption of the French way of life and government, or more significantly through intermarriage. To his credit, or discredit, as you like, Zemmour advocates assimilation, no doubt because he has been assimilated himself, and is loyal to a sovereign France, not one overrun by Brussels or ruled by the American economic model or Islamized.
What he must realize is that what has worked for him won't work for millions of immigrants who refuse to assimilate.
If Brice Hortefeux has given up on the idea of assimilation in favor of integration, is this a bad thing or a good thing for France? The problem is always the same: the largest foreign elements in France are not assimilable and so remain "integrated" but potentially very violent. But if they did assimilate, there would be no French population left - everyone would be "métissé". This was the original "dream" of Sarkozy and his ministers: a racially mixed France.
What few admit openly (although Zemmour clearly hints at it) is that France is being conquered, not merely immigrated to. And so there will not be assimilation of foreigners into the French population, but the reverse - the partial assimilation (through rape and intermarriage), and the partial integration through ghettoization, of the French population into a foreign population.
We are not at that point however. This process could be stopped, if someone would stop it.
Now back to Véliocas' article. He lashes out at the UMPS (the combination of Sarko's UMP with the Socialist Party, but Véliocas gives the acronym a new and better meaning!):
The cowardice of the UMPS ("Une Mosquée Par Semaine" - One Mosque Per Week) as it confronts the migratory invasion, is more and more difficult to deny... even for the journalists of the closely policed Figaro Magazine.
Since Eric Zemmour, by the rules of his profession, cannot propose measures or support a particular candidate, the millions of Frenchmen who listen to him must draw their own conclusions: they must vote, and more than that, they must commit themselves to the parties of the nationalist Right who dare to face the themes of Islamization and the invasion of our territory. So that tomorrow our children do not ask us: And what were you doing during the fall of French civilization?
The resistance movements can be counted on the fingers of one hand (...).
Véliocas declines to take sides on which right-wing party is best. I feel I have outlined to the best of my ability the situation that the nationalists face in my previous post and all the links provided there. In a word, the Right is in pieces. Either they really bury the hatchet(s) and join as one, or they don't, preferring to remain a plethora of small, equally ineffective, minority parties.
You can read more about Zemmour at English Wikipedia. Here are two excerpts:
Zemmour regularly takes positions that he describes as "anti-human rightsism", placing him in opposition to many politicians (including Bernard Kouchner), intellectuals (including Bernard-Henri Lévy), and organizations advocating humanitarian intervention, which Zemmour considers to be a form of neo-colonialism.
Zemmour is an advocate of traditional French assimilationism, and is staunchly opposed to "mass" immigration brought on by family reunification and to the current process of integrating immigrants which he considers too lenient towards them. He has frequently declared that he is in favour of assimilation, even if this makes him "neurotic". He is also in favour of the Thierry Mariani amendment, which would require people wishing to immigrate to France on the basis of family reunification to prove their relationship via DNA testing. He is frequently criticized for his pronouncements on immigration and his attacks on certain organizations (including SOS Racisme).
