From the New York Times:

Macron Opens Year Pulling No Punches With Journalists, or Anyone
By ADAM NOSSITER JAN. 5, 2018

Similarly, [French Boy Wonder President Macron’s] sharp-elbowed immigration policy has marked a break with the looser attitude of his Socialist predecessor. He is outflanking both the far-right’s National Front and the conventional right, both of whom make immigration their war cry. Mr. Macron is depriving them of the issue.

He set the tough tone to African students themselves, in a November address to those at Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso, who were demanding easier access to France.

“I can’t tell my middle classes who work, who pay taxes, that it’s great, we’re going to welcome everybody into the country,” Mr. Macron said. “That’s just ridiculous. Who’s going to pay for that? You’ll just fuel racism and xenophobia. That doesn’t exist, totally open frontiers, that just doesn’t work.”

Accordingly, forced expulsions of those denied asylum were up more than 13 percent last year, hovering around 15,000, compared with the previous year. The interior minister has asked prefects all over France to step up such expulsions.

“We can’t take in everybody,” Mr. Macron said in his New Year’s Eve speech. “There must be rules. It’s indispensable that we check the identities of everyone, and when someone arrives in our country who is not eligible for asylum and has no chance of getting French citizenship, we can’t accept that they stay for months, years, in an irregular situation good for neither them nor the country.”

    I expect Macron is trying to suck the rhetorical air out of his rightist opposition. Which may or may not mean anything in practice, but is a good thing because it's more proof the Overton Window has shifted.

    Is he not the globalist stooge many expected him to be? Can't tell. He could merely be a well-managed stooge.
  2. Anyone have an informed idea of what the mixed race demographics of France are like now? Is it anything like the speed of what is happening in the UK?

    • Replies: @Diversity Heretic
    France keeps no official race statistics, so estimates have to be "teased out" from other sources. A good place to start is Falko Baumgartner's article "The Africanization of France." He discusses medical data on the number of newborns tested for sickle cell disorder, which is done only if at least one parent comes from an "at-risk" area, like sub-Saharan or North Africa. These figures are updated annually; I saw the latest on the Breizh Atao website. About 35% of all French newborns are now tested for sickle cell disorder, indicating that at least one parent comes from an at-risk area. (It's an incredible 75% in the Ile-de-France, which is greater metropolitan Paris.)

    My conclusion (but feel free to draw your own) is that France is already well on its way to becoming an Franco-Arab-African country, even without additional immigration. One now sees Arabs and Africans even in small villages in places like Brittany. Reversing that situation is almost unimaginable and permitting even more Arab and African immigration is simply accelerating the racial dispossession of the native French. It's probably a greater demographic transformation than when the Franks displaced the native Gauls after the fall of the Western Roman Empire.

    I think that Macron's rhetoric is mostly just that-talk designed to weaken support for the National Front. Nothing in Macron's background suggests any resistance to mass immigration and demographic transformation.

    Sailer has written about this:
    http://takimag.com/article/le_grand_remplacement_steve_sailer/print#ixzz4Y4zx8pY4

    In 2015 38.9 percent of the babies born were non white, in cities like Paris its nearly 75%, basically France will be majority non white in either one or two generations. As for who will get there sooner, France or Britain, its much of muchness, but if you want to be absolutely precise I would guess that France gets there by a few years sooner.

    Roughly 40% of newborns are of non-European ethnicity.
    Reliably, this figure increases by 1.5% per annum.

    You do the math.
    , @Ed
    My understanding is that French women are less likely to enter into interracial relationships then their Anglo counterparts. It’s actually well known among African men that French women generally are repulsed by them unless they are fairly successful. The French just don’t have a culture where it’s normal for low class white women to have kids with black men that British woman appear to have. Interracial relationships are so common in Britain that if there was no more Afro-Caribbean migration into the country the community would be bred out of existence.

    Don't.

    Macron is anything but a race realist, a nativist, or an occidentalist. He is simply acting like a Frenchman. When the French get annoyed enough about something, they bitch about it endlessly and repress it brutally. That means that they may on occasion do something right and strike out against a real enemy just out of sheer, unenlightened self-interest. This is one of those occasions.

    But remember, this is the same Macron who said during the campaign, "There is no such thing as French culture, there is only culture in France." This is the same Macron who just a few days ago vowed to introduce a law against "fake news" during the French elections. He is as much of a globalist as any EU bureaucrat; the only difference is that he's too prissy to refrain from complaining about the consequences.

    If this turns into another "Macron is so based" threads, it will be very disappointing. The French already have a pretty significant far right movement and this guy isn't it.

  5. I wonder if Boy Macron has finally read his countryman’s old novel “The Camp of Saints”? I hope Europe will eventually realize that the ex-terrorist Muammar Gaddafi protected them from their current Islamic and African invasion (and future disintegration) until he was removed by the U.S. State Department. Europe is dead thanks to Hillary Clinton & her sidekick Sidney Blumenthal.

    • Replies: @Anonymous
    I hate to defend the Hildabeest but European governments were also eager to get rid of Gadaffi.

    I still don't know what that war was all about, but suspect it was just the settling of old scores dating back to the 1980s. Younger people may not be aware that Gadaffi was a huge PITA back then, and he was probably a bigger nuisance for Europeans than Americans.

    The current generation of French/British/Italian politicians all remember that era and must have jumped at the opportunity to get even. This was dumb and short-sighted, but well, that's human nature.
    , @AnotherDad

    Europe is dead (is dying) because Europe has chosen to die. No more, no less.

    Gaddafi was mildly helpful to Europe in keeping out the riff-raff and helping remove him was perhaps a case of revenge getting the better of sense.

    However, the southern border of Europe--the Meditteranean--is about as good as it gets in terms of "easy to police" excepting a full on ocean. It's hard to come up with a historical example of mismatch in power between invaders and invadees, than between Africans and Europeans. With a flick of a politicians pen, either the Italian, Spanish or French navy could put an absolute end to this seaborne invasion of riff-raff.

    But European politicians do not do it. The whole European super-state bureacuracies recoil in horror at the thought of doing it. And in fact work more diligently to prevent the citizenry--themselves quite capable to dispatching invaders--from organizing, or even thinking, about doing it themselves.

    That's what's killing Europe--the European death wish.
  6. Triangulation à l’Hexagone!

    Le concept de triangulation a été théorisé par Dick Morris (en), conseiller de Bill Clinton dans les années 1990, pour qui :

    « Nous étions enfermés dans un conflit très stérile entre le programme de gauche et le programme de droite. (…) Et je sentais que ce que nous devions faire c’était de prendre vraiment le meilleur du programme de chaque parti, et d’en arriver à une solution quelque part au-dessus des positions de chaque parti. (…) Se débarrasser des foutaises de chaque opinion, auxquelles les gens ne croient pas ; prendre le meilleur de chaque position ; et monter vers une troisième voie. Et cela devient un triangle, ce qui est une triangulation. »

  9. Macron is talking like a responsible pro-border security politician should talk, unlike Trump who all too often incites people. It almost doesn’t even matter whether Macron is sincere or not on the issue. At the very least he’s accepted that the issue has moved well back to the right, where it should have been all along. Now it’s acceptable for other politicians to say similar things and it’s all but mandatory for most French politicians to match his rhetoric.

    Macron will do just enough to defuse the issue for the time being and soften support for the National Front. Le Penn would be better. She would keep people like you out of France.
    , @Ed
    Not for nothing, Macron is one of the few world leaders that has taken a liking to Trump and vice versa so it could be Trump is influencing Macron on immigration.

    Also Trump is everything immigration restrictionist could ask for and more. Just today 200000 Salvordorans have had their legal status revoked due to the termination of TAP, a temporary program that covered them since 2001. The rule of law is being applied and enforced, a profound change over the last 20 years.
  11. Neoliberalism Strikes Back.

  12. Macron is a talker. What he says means very little – and can be interpreted less charitably if you actually parse the words.

    The idea that at this advanced stage France can stay French (in a European sense) with some small talk and a few random attempts at enforcement is not realistic. Take a walk around Paris, ride the Metro, try the RER, stop by train stations, this is not going to be fixed by a speech in Ouagodogodou. Macron’s role is to stall and distract. And I wonder if Trump will play the same role. After Macron it will be too late.

    The elites have decided to replace us. And they are still doing it. Cheap labor, multi-cultural dog-eat-dog world is our designated future. It is a natural outcome when you combine ultra-capitalism with its drive for cheap labor and unhinged cultural Marxism with its drive for ‘global equality’.

    It’s classic Overton Window cleaning. Macron opines in a measured way on the unsustainability of open borders; media clutches pearls at Macron’s fascism; nothing changes; everyone that counts is happy.
    , @Detective Club
    It's all smoke and mirrors. Macron is undoubtedly cooking the books on the deportation numbers and even those numbers are a joke and won't make an appreciable dent in the relentless Third-World invasion. The hour in France is very late and only by deporting hundreds of thousands can there be an actual delay in the near prospect of the final dissolution of France. Rather than turn back the rot or reverse the rot altogether, the French are simply happy nowadays to plan their future on an outrageous foundation of obvious lies. Pathetic.

    I don't care. Hell, I'd love it if we could get some American politicians to start increasing deportations and telling third-world populations to stay home out of sheer unenlightened self-interest.

    Right now, we don't have the luxury of looking into people's hearts and trying to discern whether they actually think like we do. We need illegal immigrants sent home - in the physical, bodily sense - and potential immigrants from other countries led to believe the same will happen to them. While the reasons and internal motivations of the people who make it happen are also important, we need to what we can get if it gets the ball rolling right now.

  18. Somewhat related, Oprah is apparently running for President and used her speech at the Golden Globes to capture the Hollywood vote. NBC believes she’s the next President, as does Sarah Silverman. So there, you deplorables you.

    For Macron, the danger is that an Islamic Republic gets declared encompassing a large part of Paris and the suburbs and much of Marseille, Lyon, Lille, etc. Already a French Academic has proposed that France cede much of her cities for this.

    Historically, leaders who cede great swathes of their nation to foreign invaders get deposed by someone who will fight. The backdrop of Macron firing a bunch of French Generals is thus instructive. He’s trying to flank people and get ahead of any Islamic Republic by slowly increasing deportations. Obviously a massive troop mobilization to protect the Eiffel Tower and Louvre and French Presidential Palace and Notre Dame is not sustainable forever.

    Its all fun and games until someone declares an Islamic Republic encompassing half the nations cities.

    Oprah could win. White women love her. Blacks would go crazy. Hispanics wouldn't care, but enough would vote and for her.

    She's the one Dem candidate that wouldn't make whites realize that they're getting pushed out of the upper echelon of that party. They'd love her too much to notice.

    Also, if you thought that media loved Obama, imagine how they'd cream over her. It'd be hilarious and embarrassing. Not just the first woman president, but the first black woman president, and it's their besty Oprah!

    Of course, Oprah would be just like Obama, except she'd throw in women's issues on top of black issues. Actually, Oprah is the one candidate that could keep blacks from telling white women to step down. Oprah would talk about women getting screwed over by white men and blacks wouldn't care because they'd know that she'll put blacks first.

    I'm assuming that Oprah is basically Hillary but with infinitely better communications skills. It'd almost be fun to see what the government would start to do with someone like that in the White House. Quotas, more money to blacks and single mothers of all races, the list is endless.

    Pretty sound analysis. Macron is definitely aware of the danger the military poses to him if the intensity ratchets up to the real deal on his watch, yet he’s in a tight spot because he’s not a military man himself and no competent non-Islamic fighter would stand by him in such a situation.

    Le Pen wasn’t competitive in the runoff for one reason and one reason alone: Macron talked horribly - he sounded like a sneering freshman frat boy pounding on a nerdy classmate - in the debate and yet she somehow managed to do even worse. Macron had made a whole series of blunders in the week following the first round and Le Pen’s poll numbers climbed almost every day: 38% on the first round and up to 42% by the day before the debate before crashing and burning at less than 37% on D-Day. This was hers to lose and she lost it.

    Yes, France is in a state of low-intensity civil war. The media are doing their best to conceal this reality in the service of the political and Eurocrat business class, a feat which given the unpleasantness of the news is easy enough to make the public go along with even in the face of all reasonable evidence. (P.S.: think the U.S. is better? How many supposedly decent, supposedly conservative folks voted for Trump only “reluctantly”?)

    The polls look very promising for the Right-wing political grouping in March's Italian national elections. The Northern League is campaigning on a platform of instant deportation for "deserving migrants" into Italy. For the first time, the Northern League might actually register above 20% in electoral districts to the south of Rome. The only thing stopping a new aggressive governmental deportation policy in Italy is if the 5-Star grouping goes back on its current platform against "deserving migrants" and reverts to its original Leftist origins and starts considering all Third-World migrants worthy of permanent asylum in Italy.

He made all of those simple, common sense immigration statements that sent the Left to their fainting couches. Once he lost like a good Washington General though, he was back to his open borders standard. Macron doesn't believe what he says and will do little or nothing.

    Who’s going to pay for that?

    It’s important to make the economic argument (which is implicitly HBDish): that most, if not the vast majority, of non-white immigrants to western countries are significantly less productive than the average native, and must be subsidized; it makes no sense for a country to import a ‘B team’ — but in a country like France (Liberté, égalité, fraternité ), which already has a strong welfare state orientation, this will never be enough — only white racial consciousness leading to an explicit decision to preserve a white majority will save France.

    Nigeria starts large scale evacuation of its citizens from Libya
    Hani Amara

    TRIPOLI (Reuters) - Nigeria is starting flights to evacuate thousands of its citizens from Libya which will continue until all those wanting to return home have done so, its foreign minister said on Saturday.

    Nigerians have recently been the largest national group among African migrants travelling to Libya and trying to cross from there to Italy by sea.

    Since local armed factions and Libya’s coastguard began blocking more migrants from leaving in July last year, large numbers have been trapped in Libya, where they often face dire conditions and abuse, including forced labour.

    The International Organization for Migration (IOM) has in recent months accelerated a “voluntary returns” programme to repatriate migrants from a number of countries. Nigeria now joins Niger in organising bilateral returns.

    “The main objective, and we’re very focused on that objective, is to get these Nigerian citizens back home as quickly as possible,” Nigerian Foreign Minister Geoffrey Onyema told reporters during a visit to Tripoli.

    ”Our president has made available all the resources necessary to repatriate all the Nigerians here.

    “We have two planes arriving today and God willing we are hoping to evacuate anything up to 800 Nigerians today.”

    It’s all smoke and mirrors. Macron is undoubtedly cooking the books on the deportation numbers and even those numbers are a joke and won’t make an appreciable dent in the relentless Third-World invasion. The hour in France is very late and only by deporting hundreds of thousands can there be an actual delay in the near prospect of the final dissolution of France. Rather than turn back the rot or reverse the rot altogether, the French are simply happy nowadays to plan their future on an outrageous foundation of obvious lies. Pathetic.

  47. Unfortunately, this will be effective in soothing the public regardless of whether Macron follows through. In Denmark restrictionists voters were satisfied with rhetoric and a few symbolic policies but the core driver of immigration came from the refugee policy which was ensconced in international law. The restrictionist party never dared go after that but the media or anybody never attack restrictionists for not living up to their claims. So restrictionist politicians get a free ride.

    It took 14 years for a new more hardcore semi-respectable restrictionist party to appear. Europe doesn’t have as long time to figure this out. The only advantage is that this moving of the Overton window means that the right wing parties can exploit this opening to move it further. Once the main ideological/political point, that immigration is too high and that it is ok to deport, is conceded from the mainstream center(and the adjacent media/thinktanks) then the old discourse is weakened.

    Post-2015, Denmark’s immigration minister, Inger Støjberg, played a major role in moving the country’s immigration policy to the right. Støjberg made headline news earlier this year (March 2017), when she celebrated the country’s 50th regulation against immigration with a cake.

    The polls look very promising for the Right-wing political grouping in March’s Italian national elections. The Northern League is campaigning on a platform of instant deportation for “deserving migrants” into Italy. For the first time, the Northern League might actually register above 20% in electoral districts to the south of Rome. The only thing stopping a new aggressive governmental deportation policy in Italy is if the 5-Star grouping goes back on its current platform against “deserving migrants” and reverts to its original Leftist origins and starts considering all Third-World migrants worthy of permanent asylum in Italy.

    My understanding is that French women are less likely to enter into interracial relationships then their Anglo counterparts. It’s actually well known among African men that French women generally are repulsed by them unless they are fairly successful. The French just don’t have a culture where it’s normal for low class white women to have kids with black men that British woman appear to have. Interracial relationships are so common in Britain that if there was no more Afro-Caribbean migration into the country the community would be bred out of existence.

    France keeps no official race statistics, so estimates have to be "teased out" from other sources. A good place to start is Falko Baumgartner's article "The Africanization of France." He discusses medical data on the number of newborns tested for sickle cell disorder, which is done only if at least one parent comes from an "at-risk" area, like sub-Saharan or North Africa. These figures are updated annually; I saw the latest on the Breizh Atao website. About 35% of all French newborns are now tested for sickle cell disorder, indicating that at least one parent comes from an at-risk area. (It's an incredible 75% in the Ile-de-France, which is greater metropolitan Paris.)

    My conclusion (but feel free to draw your own) is that France is already well on its way to becoming an Franco-Arab-African country, even without additional immigration. One now sees Arabs and Africans even in small villages in places like Brittany. Reversing that situation is almost unimaginable and permitting even more Arab and African immigration is simply accelerating the racial dispossession of the native French. It's probably a greater demographic transformation than when the Franks displaced the native Gauls after the fall of the Western Roman Empire.

    I think that Macron's rhetoric is mostly just that-talk designed to weaken support for the National Front. Nothing in Macron's background suggests any resistance to mass immigration and demographic transformation.

    Leaders change, they get access to information often secret, and they react. This isn’t an act he’s been fairly consistent about this for sometime. How far he goes is anyone’s guess but merely signaling a tough posture goes a long way. Deportations are up and they want them higher.

    My understanding is that French women are less likely to enter into interracial relationships then their Anglo counterparts. It’s actually well known among African men that French women generally are repulsed by them unless they are fairly successful. The French just don’t have a culture where it’s normal for low class white women to have kids with black men that British woman appear to have. Interracial relationships are so common in Britain that if there was no more Afro-Caribbean migration into the country the community would be bred out of existence.

    Your understanding is wrong. Second generation immigrants (well assimilated) are pretty acceptable to most French women. No idea about UK but France is not different from US.

    It is not necessarily a bad thing either as long as flood gates of Africa aren’t opened into France. Macron talks about immigration control & all but the movement from Africa to France continues.

    Very sorry to hear that. Like--i'm guess--a lot of Americans i had the vague feeling the French had more a sense of themselves and French women were a bit classier.

    Anglo women have taken the full brunt of PC and Hollyweird propagandizing and a fair portion seem to have been brainwashed into being quite fine with being mudsharks. It's an incredible change during my short life.

    My single--very brief--exposure to France (entirely in Paris) was very depressing vis-a-vis the demographics and the slumminess and decay visible travelling through the suburbs. But i did not notice particularly rampant mudsharkery. The French looking gals seemed to be with French looking guys. Sad if that seeming bright spot of good taste was an observational quirk or is in decline.

    Inside Higher Ed has a nice interview with an academic who has created what sounds like a good new model for studying and predicting future college enrollment, the Higher Education Demand Index.

    https://www.insidehighered.com/admissions/article/2018/01/08/new-book-argues-most-colleges-are-about-face-significant-decline

    The word’s “white,” “black,” and “African” do not appear in the interview, although “Asian” and “Hispanic” make an appearance. It’s funny to read the verbal gymnastics used to beat around the bush.

    For example, they rephrase “The number of white high school graduates is decreasing,” as “Everyone in admissions knows that certain groups of students — those who graduate from good high schools and have parents able to pay a significant share or all of their tuition and other college expenses — are shrinking in number.”

    An astounding statistic is mentioned: “More than 70 percent of all students will attend some college.” I’d previously read that it was 50 percent. What the heck business do students below the mean in cognitive ability have in attending college? Charles Murray in Real Education says only 10 percent of the population should be going to college, but he could settle for 20 percent. That roughly means that you’d have an I.Q. of 110 or so, which is about the minimum that you need to learn and understand algebra, according to some research. There really need to be more vocational educational options. The way that a college degree has replaced a high school degree has just put a lot of people in the job market with college degrees but with skills equal to what a high school degree used to guarantee. And with six-figure student loan debt.

    In deindustrialized postmodern economies such as the U.S., Britain and France there simply isn’t enough gainful blue-collar or low-key employment to occupy the young and the restless. The higher-education racket therefore serves three purposes: 1. to distract these young and restless bodies a few years longer, artificially deflating both the work force and unemployment, 2. to unload a larger share of the mounting debt burden onto specimens who have more to lose in repudiating the debt, and 3. to up the credentialist ante in order to justify paying lower wages for more work.

    I was initially deeply sceptical about Macron, but I like the cut of this fellow’s jib.
     
    Don't.

    Macron is anything but a race realist, a nativist, or an occidentalist. He is simply acting like a Frenchman. When the French get annoyed enough about something, they bitch about it endlessly and repress it brutally. That means that they may on occasion do something right and strike out against a real enemy just out of sheer, unenlightened self-interest. This is one of those occasions.

    But remember, this is the same Macron who said during the campaign, "There is no such thing as French culture, there is only culture in France." This is the same Macron who just a few days ago vowed to introduce a law against "fake news" during the French elections. He is as much of a globalist as any EU bureaucrat; the only difference is that he's too prissy to refrain from complaining about the consequences.

    If this turns into another "Macron is so based" threads, it will be very disappointing. The French already have a pretty significant far right movement and this guy isn't it.

    Very surprised to hear this comment from one of Steve’s sharpest and most clued-in commenters. I don’t see how anyone could be less than impressed with this recent anti-open borders turn from Emmy Mac.

    I don’t care. Hell, I’d love it if we could get some American politicians to start increasing deportations and telling third-world populations to stay home out of sheer unenlightened self-interest.

    Right now, we don’t have the luxury of looking into people’s hearts and trying to discern whether they actually think like we do. We need illegal immigrants sent home – in the physical, bodily sense – and potential immigrants from other countries led to believe the same will happen to them. While the reasons and internal motivations of the people who make it happen are also important, we need to what we can get if it gets the ball rolling right now.

    • Replies: @Intelligent Dasein
    Your point is well taken. I agree that getting the invaders out of Europe and America by any means necessary would be a good thing. Macron may have inadvertently scored an own-goal (from the globalist perspective) on the immigration issue. He may have, as you and other commenters have suggested, shifted the Overton window and freed others to speak more openly about the subject. But unless the political will to halt and deport is really present, it will be impossible to consolidate these vague motions into any real and effective action, and that's what makes the words a double-edged sword.

    Reading Macron's heart isn't just some airy test of ideological purity, it is the criterion of success. Unless his heart is really in it, well, he won't be making that mistake again.

    We've been through something similar with Trump, who repeatedly promised to end DACA on "day one" of his administration. This he easily could have done, for DACA is not even law; it is nothing but an executive order which Trump could have rescinded with a mere wave of his imperial hand. But not only did he not end it, he is currently negotiating to regularize it and amnesty the (D)reamers.* Why would he do this?

    Clearly his rhetoric was never serious, and any lingering notions that he is playing 4D chess are invalidated by the longstanding, deeply entrenched nature of the 180. It was only a few months into the administration that Trump tweeted out, "Does anyone really want to deport decent, hardworking people?" or something like that (I'm quoting from memory here). This was nothing but the same extremely hackneyed open-borders talking point, reflected in shallow Trumpian waters. Not only was Trump swayed away from his campaign promises, but he is now trying to sway us with the cheapest and crudest tactics imaginable, i.e. the sort that seem to work on him.

    Somebody up-thread mentioned Lindsey Graham's cuddling up to Trump as an interesting development. It's clear that Graham and the rest of the Deep State minions have figured out how to play him like a fiddle. All you have to do is flatter him, tell him that he can accomplish X but nobody else can, and you can get him to do any X. Trump will serve up DACA on a silver platter just so he can get the credit for doing something Obama couldn't do, and this, for him, is "winning." It has nothing to do with helping the country, only with expanding his ego.

    Trump and Macron are similar in the sense that they are both shysters who are stealing the issues people really care about and using them to advance their vain personal ambitions. I think in each case the solution is the same: the Real Right needs to steal the issues back and run candidates who actually believe in them, who will be what Trump pretended to be but wasn't. As difficult as it is to read hearts, the heart, I'm afraid, is everything.

    * The bald-faced euphemism "Dreamers" is rendered here as (D)reamers---as in Democratic reamers---because that's in fact what they are. I wouldn't mind seeing this convention take hold among a wider sphere of Alt-Right mavens.

    I hate to defend the Hildabeest but European governments were also eager to get rid of Gadaffi.

    I still don't know what that war was all about, but suspect it was just the settling of old scores dating back to the 1980s. Younger people may not be aware that Gadaffi was a huge PITA back then, and he was probably a bigger nuisance for Europeans than Americans.

    The current generation of French/British/Italian politicians all remember that era and must have jumped at the opportunity to get even. This was dumb and short-sighted, but well, that's human nature.

    When Reagan bombed Libya in retaliation for the Berlin nightclub bombing in 1986, F-111 bombers based in the UK were used along with other forces.
    The French refused to allow the planes to use French airspace, so they were routed out into the Atlantic and then into the Med over Gibraltar. One was shot down over the Gulf of Sidra.
    The Italian Prime minister admitted that he had warned Ghaddaffi of the attack in time for the Libyans to prepare.
    So apparently the Europeans didn’t think Gaddhaffi was such a problem at the time.

    That the French didn't trust the U.S. and didn't want to get involved in U.S. military adventures doesn't mean they liked Gadaffi.

    And given Gadaffi's well-known reputation for sponsorship of terrorists in Europe, the Italians and other Europeans were understandably reluctant to become complicit in the American attack, as for obvious geographic reasons Libyan retaliation would have fallen on them rather than the U.S.

    The British, Belgians, West Germans, and others had their own disputes with Gadaffi back then. He was a major headache for European governments at that time.

    That said, in the 1990s he mellowed out and eventually became a good neighbor. This 1980s stuff was water under the bridge by the time of the Arab Spring. It was wrong and stupid to overthrow him

    France keeps no official race statistics, so estimates have to be "teased out" from other sources. A good place to start is Falko Baumgartner's article "The Africanization of France." He discusses medical data on the number of newborns tested for sickle cell disorder, which is done only if at least one parent comes from an "at-risk" area, like sub-Saharan or North Africa. These figures are updated annually; I saw the latest on the Breizh Atao website. About 35% of all French newborns are now tested for sickle cell disorder, indicating that at least one parent comes from an at-risk area. (It's an incredible 75% in the Ile-de-France, which is greater metropolitan Paris.)

    My conclusion (but feel free to draw your own) is that France is already well on its way to becoming an Franco-Arab-African country, even without additional immigration. One now sees Arabs and Africans even in small villages in places like Brittany. Reversing that situation is almost unimaginable and permitting even more Arab and African immigration is simply accelerating the racial dispossession of the native French. It's probably a greater demographic transformation than when the Franks displaced the native Gauls after the fall of the Western Roman Empire.

    I think that Macron's rhetoric is mostly just that-talk designed to weaken support for the National Front. Nothing in Macron's background suggests any resistance to mass immigration and demographic transformation.

    I’ve seen that medical data before, and it always seems stunning, especially if you look at the numbers over a number of years. The speed of the transformation is crazy.

    Of course, that makes me wonder if something isn’t off about it. Has anyone made any counter-arguments that would call into question using the data as a proxy for racial demographics in France?

    • Replies: @Beckow
    The medical data could be off a small factor. The testing procedures are based on subjective questionnaires, and often when in doubt the test is performed.

    I base my observation of France partially on what one sees on the streets, now even in rural areas. Paris seems around 50% Third World, with some districts much more so. Marseille has been Third World-like for a generation. Lyon, Bordeaux, Montpellier are better, but the menacing presence is quite noticeable there too. I understand that visuals overstate the numbers, but it is hard to argue with what is in front of one's eyes.

    The younger population is approaching 20-25% Third Worlders. The way population replacement works is that at some point their is a literal tsunami that overwhelms the native population. France is in a transition period where people can see what they prefer to see. E.g. if one goes to richer, remoter suburbs the 'Frenchness' has been preserved. There is also an irrational hope that 'assimilation' will fix it. The problem is that assimilation has historically worked best with the initial migrants, the best educated, most motivated, small numbers. France is now getting the follow-up waves - the loser cousins, in-laws, random hustlers, anyone who can get there - those generally never assimilate because they actually hate their new homes (as they hated their old ones).

    This is a catastrophe and Macron's talk will not do anything. It is meant as a distraction. We shouldn't get distracted.

    TRIPOLI (Reuters) – Nigeria is starting flights to evacuate thousands of its citizens from Libya which will continue until all those wanting to return home have done so, its foreign minister said on Saturday.

    Nigerians have recently been the largest national group among African migrants travelling to Libya and trying to cross from there to Italy by sea.

    Since local armed factions and Libya’s coastguard began blocking more migrants from leaving in July last year, large numbers have been trapped in Libya, where they often face dire conditions and abuse, including forced labour.

    The International Organization for Migration (IOM) has in recent months accelerated a “voluntary returns” programme to repatriate migrants from a number of countries. Nigeria now joins Niger in organising bilateral returns.

    “The main objective, and we’re very focused on that objective, is to get these Nigerian citizens back home as quickly as possible,” Nigerian Foreign Minister Geoffrey Onyema told reporters during a visit to Tripoli.

    ”Our president has made available all the resources necessary to repatriate all the Nigerians here.

    “We have two planes arriving today and God willing we are hoping to evacuate anything up to 800 Nigerians today.”

    So Macron is everything y'all wanted Trump to be?

    How it must burn considering the Le Pen wank fest here often turned into last year.

    Macron will do just enough to defuse the issue for the time being and soften support for the National Front. Le Penn would be better. She would keep people like you out of France.

    CNN's Jake Tapper interviews Stephen Miller.

    It starts to get good around 5:50.

    Supposedly, Miller had to be escorted out by security guards after the end of the interview.

    “The segment was over and Mr. Miller was politely asked to leave the set multiple times — after refusing to leave, he was escorted out by security,” the source said in an email.

     

    I would no more believe Jake Tapper’s staff people at CNN than I would believe Tapper himself.

    Very surprised to hear this comment from one of Steve's sharpest and most clued-in commenters. I don't see how anyone could be less than impressed with this recent anti-open borders turn from Emmy Mac.

    Macron is anything but a race realist, a nativist, or an occidentalist. He is simply acting like a Frenchman. When the French get annoyed enough about something, they bitch about it endlessly and repress it brutally. That means that they may on occasion do something right and strike out against a real enemy just out of sheer, unenlightened self-interest. This is one of those occasions.
     
    I don't care. Hell, I'd love it if we could get some American politicians to start increasing deportations and telling third-world populations to stay home out of sheer unenlightened self-interest.

    Right now, we don't have the luxury of looking into people's hearts and trying to discern whether they actually think like we do. We need illegal immigrants sent home - in the physical, bodily sense - and potential immigrants from other countries led to believe the same will happen to them. While the reasons and internal motivations of the people who make it happen are also important, we need to what we can get if it gets the ball rolling right now.

    Your point is well taken. I agree that getting the invaders out of Europe and America by any means necessary would be a good thing. Macron may have inadvertently scored an own-goal (from the globalist perspective) on the immigration issue. He may have, as you and other commenters have suggested, shifted the Overton window and freed others to speak more openly about the subject. But unless the political will to halt and deport is really present, it will be impossible to consolidate these vague motions into any real and effective action, and that’s what makes the words a double-edged sword.

    Reading Macron’s heart isn’t just some airy test of ideological purity, it is the criterion of success. Unless his heart is really in it, well, he won’t be making that mistake again.

    We’ve been through something similar with Trump, who repeatedly promised to end DACA on “day one” of his administration. This he easily could have done, for DACA is not even law; it is nothing but an executive order which Trump could have rescinded with a mere wave of his imperial hand. But not only did he not end it, he is currently negotiating to regularize it and amnesty the (D)reamers.* Why would he do this?

    Clearly his rhetoric was never serious, and any lingering notions that he is playing 4D chess are invalidated by the longstanding, deeply entrenched nature of the 180. It was only a few months into the administration that Trump tweeted out, “Does anyone really want to deport decent, hardworking people?” or something like that (I’m quoting from memory here). This was nothing but the same extremely hackneyed open-borders talking point, reflected in shallow Trumpian waters. Not only was Trump swayed away from his campaign promises, but he is now trying to sway us with the cheapest and crudest tactics imaginable, i.e. the sort that seem to work on him.

    Somebody up-thread mentioned Lindsey Graham’s cuddling up to Trump as an interesting development. It’s clear that Graham and the rest of the Deep State minions have figured out how to play him like a fiddle. All you have to do is flatter him, tell him that he can accomplish X but nobody else can, and you can get him to do any X. Trump will serve up DACA on a silver platter just so he can get the credit for doing something Obama couldn’t do, and this, for him, is “winning.” It has nothing to do with helping the country, only with expanding his ego.

    Trump and Macron are similar in the sense that they are both shysters who are stealing the issues people really care about and using them to advance their vain personal ambitions. I think in each case the solution is the same: the Real Right needs to steal the issues back and run candidates who actually believe in them, who will be what Trump pretended to be but wasn’t. As difficult as it is to read hearts, the heart, I’m afraid, is everything.

    * The bald-faced euphemism “Dreamers” is rendered here as (D)reamers—as in Democratic reamers—because that’s in fact what they are. I wouldn’t mind seeing this convention take hold among a wider sphere of Alt-Right mavens.

    Securing the southern border, cutting the lottery and chain migration, merit-based immigration is his goal. Did ANYONE seriously believe that Trump had ANY intention of building a 2,000 mile wall on the border?

    Nubes!

    There WILL be a wall, make no mistake. But it ain't gonna be 2,000 miles long. For gosh sakes, pay attention to who Trump is and how he operates.

    The problem with that is France is already past a point where what Macron is doing will turn the tide. He needs to be willing to expel people already living in France. He needs to be willing to take whatever measures are necessary to stop hundreds of cars from being torched on Paris streets by Muslims on New Year’s Eve every year. He won’t do it.

    Somewhat related, Oprah is apparently running for President and used her speech at the Golden Globes to capture the Hollywood vote. NBC believes she's the next President, as does Sarah Silverman. So there, you deplorables you.

    For Macron, the danger is that an Islamic Republic gets declared encompassing a large part of Paris and the suburbs and much of Marseille, Lyon, Lille, etc. Already a French Academic has proposed that France cede much of her cities for this.

    Historically, leaders who cede great swathes of their nation to foreign invaders get deposed by someone who will fight. The backdrop of Macron firing a bunch of French Generals is thus instructive. He's trying to flank people and get ahead of any Islamic Republic by slowly increasing deportations. Obviously a massive troop mobilization to protect the Eiffel Tower and Louvre and French Presidential Palace and Notre Dame is not sustainable forever.

    Its all fun and games until someone declares an Islamic Republic encompassing half the nations cities.

    Oprah could win. White women love her. Blacks would go crazy. Hispanics wouldn’t care, but enough would vote and for her.

    She’s the one Dem candidate that wouldn’t make whites realize that they’re getting pushed out of the upper echelon of that party. They’d love her too much to notice.

    Also, if you thought that media loved Obama, imagine how they’d cream over her. It’d be hilarious and embarrassing. Not just the first woman president, but the first black woman president, and it’s their besty Oprah!

    Of course, Oprah would be just like Obama, except she’d throw in women’s issues on top of black issues. Actually, Oprah is the one candidate that could keep blacks from telling white women to step down. Oprah would talk about women getting screwed over by white men and blacks wouldn’t care because they’d know that she’ll put blacks first.

    I’m assuming that Oprah is basically Hillary but with infinitely better communications skills. It’d almost be fun to see what the government would start to do with someone like that in the White House. Quotas, more money to blacks and single mothers of all races, the list is endless.

    And what a treasure trove of material for you, Whiskey. The Nice White Lady syndrome would be on overdrive, while white men would grew increasingly frustrated and maybe even angry.

    Unfortunately, this will be effective in soothing the public regardless of whether Macron follows through. In Denmark restrictionists voters were satisfied with rhetoric and a few symbolic policies but the core driver of immigration came from the refugee policy which was ensconced in international law. The restrictionist party never dared go after that but the media or anybody never attack restrictionists for not living up to their claims. So restrictionist politicians get a free ride.

    It took 14 years for a new more hardcore semi-respectable restrictionist party to appear. Europe doesn't have as long time to figure this out. The only advantage is that this moving of the Overton window means that the right wing parties can exploit this opening to move it further. Once the main ideological/political point, that immigration is too high and that it is ok to deport, is conceded from the mainstream center(and the adjacent media/thinktanks) then the old discourse is weakened.

    Refugee applications are down nearly 90% in two years in Denmark. The govt attributes it to policy changes after ‘15. So it does appear leaders do respond to voters concerns with actual policy changes.

    https://qz.com/1171331/asylum-seekers-in-denmark-number-of-applications-has-fallen-by-84-since-2015/

    by a center-right coalition. The elections bolstered the Danish People’s Party, now the country’s second largest political party, which ran on an unapologetically anti-immigration populist platform.

    Post-2015, Denmark’s immigration minister, Inger Støjberg, played a major role in moving the country’s immigration policy to the right. Støjberg made headline news earlier this year (March 2017), when she celebrated the country’s 50th regulation against immigration with a cake. She received severe backlash after she took to Facebook to post a smiling photo of herself holding the cake, adorn with fruit, the Danish flag, and a prominent number 50.

Just today 200000 Salvordorans have had their legal status revoked due to the termination of TAP, a temporary program that covered them since 2001. The rule of law is being applied and enforced, a profound change over the last 20 years.

    My understanding is that French women are less likely to enter into interracial relationships then their Anglo counterparts. It’s actually well known among African men that French women generally are repulsed by them unless they are fairly successful. The French just don’t have a culture where it’s normal for low class white women to have kids with black men that British woman appear to have. Interracial relationships are so common in Britain that if there was no more Afro-Caribbean migration into the country the community would be bred out of existence.

    A lot of people here base their knowledge of interracial relationships in France off Inglorious Basterds.

    Macron's full speech (in French).

    A former prime minister, Michel Rocard, already said in 1990 that France "cannot welcome" everyone. Apparently this is a widely quoted remark, and Macron is echoing it.

    But Macron also says that France will continue to welcome those fleeing various forms of persecution, because "France is their homeland".

    Yep.

    Macron talks out of both sides of his mouth at the same time.
    The other week a chartered aircraft brought a plane load, (the first of many), of fraudsters ahem ‘migrants’ direct from Libya to France rather than bothering with that tiresome little ‘nicety’ of making a Mediterranean boat voyage.

    It's all smoke and mirrors. Macron is undoubtedly cooking the books on the deportation numbers and even those numbers are a joke and won't make an appreciable dent in the relentless Third-World invasion. The hour in France is very late and only by deporting hundreds of thousands can there be an actual delay in the near prospect of the final dissolution of France. Rather than turn back the rot or reverse the rot altogether, the French are simply happy nowadays to plan their future on an outrageous foundation of obvious lies. Pathetic.

    It won’t happen.
    It just won’t happen. The ‘deportations’ that is.

  104. Macron is great at talking out of both sides of his mouth. *After* the Bataclan attacks he was praising Merkel for redeeming Europe morally by letting in all the MENA/SSA refuse while simultaneously taunting the British that France would in effect transist migrants across the Channel for border control over there if the UK pulled out of the EU.

    He sung the praises of the “vibrant” black and brown Arab and African “France” in Marseille and then warned that too much immigration would fuel resentment and xenophobia. He went to Algeria and accused his country of crimes against humanity on foreign soil. Later (after somehow escaping lynching for this act of public treason), lacking any sort of cold, calculated composure, nervously and awkwardly introduced topics of conversation and found himself snapping incoherently to defend the CFA elephant in the room full of African students.

    He gives lip service to France’s Catholic and monarchical past and hints that a “lay” politic shouldn’t have to mean a lay “society,” knowing full well that the sheltered boobs in Western Versailles will feel flattered for their sorry half-assed Catholic fake aristocratic asses and blissfully ignore the major beneficiary of relaxed “laïcité” in France is not Catholicism but Islam, the Frencg State exercising de facto control of most important ecclesiastical appointments behind the scenes.

    Macron is a snake, pure and simple. Don’t trust a word he says, and regardless of any concrete salutary measure he might enact don’t think for one minute that France will come out anything but worse after 5 to 10 years of consenting to let such a sneaky flab incarnate the nation.

    I still don't know what that war was all about, but suspect it was just the settling of old scores dating back to the 1980s. Younger people may not be aware that Gadaffi was a huge PITA back then, and he was probably a bigger nuisance for Europeans than Americans.

    From what I heard Sarkozy was the main instigator of the anti-Gaddafi folly, and had the Libyan opposition representatives prepped and coached to trot out all the SJW talking points Clinton wanted to hear (women’s rights, democracy, etc.). She went back to Washington with stars in her eyes and the Obama administration went from 50/50 kill Gaddafi/keep Gaddafi to 51/49 kill/keep. Obama ate out of Sarkozy’s and Merkel’s hands throughout his first term; throughout his second, he and Hollande both are out of Merkel’s.

    You may well be correct (I suspect your knowledge of French politics exceeds mine), but even after France's year of vibrant diversity (still so vibrant, 110,000 French soldiers were on duty over Christmas containing it) Le Pen wasn't competitive in the run-off.

    Macron may well be as good as we're going to get west of the Rhine.

    Le Pen wasn’t competitive in the runoff for one reason and one reason alone: Macron talked horribly – he sounded like a sneering freshman frat boy pounding on a nerdy classmate – in the debate and yet she somehow managed to do even worse. Macron had made a whole series of blunders in the week following the first round and Le Pen’s poll numbers climbed almost every day: 38% on the first round and up to 42% by the day before the debate before crashing and burning at less than 37% on D-Day. This was hers to lose and she lost it.

    Yes, France is in a state of low-intensity civil war. The media are doing their best to conceal this reality in the service of the political and Eurocrat business class, a feat which given the unpleasantness of the news is easy enough to make the public go along with even in the face of all reasonable evidence. (P.S.: think the U.S. is better? How many supposedly decent, supposedly conservative folks voted for Trump only “reluctantly”?)

    Pretty sound analysis. Macron is definitely aware of the danger the military poses to him if the intensity ratchets up to the real deal on his watch, yet he’s in a tight spot because he’s not a military man himself and no competent non-Islamic fighter would stand by him in such a situation.

Four of the last six American ambassadors to Israel have been Jews. None have been Arabs, Palestinians or Muslims.

    Gaddafi was mildly helpful to Europe in keeping out the riff-raff and helping remove him was perhaps a case of revenge getting the better of sense.

    However, the southern border of Europe–the Meditteranean–is about as good as it gets in terms of “easy to police” excepting a full on ocean. It’s hard to come up with a historical example of mismatch in power between invaders and invadees, than between Africans and Europeans. With a flick of a politicians pen, either the Italian, Spanish or French navy could put an absolute end to this seaborne invasion of riff-raff.

    But European politicians do not do it. The whole European super-state bureacuracies recoil in horror at the thought of doing it. And in fact work more diligently to prevent the citizenry–themselves quite capable to dispatching invaders–from organizing, or even thinking, about doing it themselves.

Gaddafi could be there blocking and tackling for Europe, but if European will and common sense aren't there, you'd still have a disaster. (See Merkel.) And without Gaddafi if Europe still had will and good sense, the invasion would be trivial to stop.

    Every people, everywhere and always need will and good sense to survive. They may also need technical capability or numerical capability relative to invaders. But will and good sense are baseline requirements.

    The forces involved in killing both Europe and the USA (and rest of Anglosphere) are multiple and complex.

    In the US voting ID is passively protected. You guess a name and they cross it out. Somebody else tries to use that name, they're too late. One thing that can consistently be said of dead people is that they have names. Most of our population does not vote, so if you can identify a likely non-voter, literally nothing prevents you from voting under their name, and you will almost certainly never be caught. This is a joke system with self-explanatory vulnerabilities. Mexico has active and positive voting ID protection, they have a voter ID with state of the art biometrics. Voting in Mexico like an American would get you imprisoned.

    Somewhat related, Oprah is apparently running for President and used her speech at the Golden Globes to capture the Hollywood vote. NBC believes she's the next President, as does Sarah Silverman. So there, you deplorables you.

    For Macron, the danger is that an Islamic Republic gets declared encompassing a large part of Paris and the suburbs and much of Marseille, Lyon, Lille, etc. Already a French Academic has proposed that France cede much of her cities for this.

    Historically, leaders who cede great swathes of their nation to foreign invaders get deposed by someone who will fight. The backdrop of Macron firing a bunch of French Generals is thus instructive. He's trying to flank people and get ahead of any Islamic Republic by slowly increasing deportations. Obviously a massive troop mobilization to protect the Eiffel Tower and Louvre and French Presidential Palace and Notre Dame is not sustainable forever.

    Its all fun and games until someone declares an Islamic Republic encompassing half the nations cities.

    Inside Higher Ed has a nice interview with an academic who has created what sounds like a good new model for studying and predicting future college enrollment, the Higher Education Demand Index.

    https://www.insidehighered.com/admissions/article/2018/01/08/new-book-argues-most-colleges-are-about-face-significant-decline

    The word's "white," "black," and "African" do not appear in the interview, although "Asian" and "Hispanic" make an appearance. It's funny to read the verbal gymnastics used to beat around the bush.

    For example, they rephrase "The number of white high school graduates is decreasing," as "Everyone in admissions knows that certain groups of students -- those who graduate from good high schools and have parents able to pay a significant share or all of their tuition and other college expenses -- are shrinking in number."

    An astounding statistic is mentioned: "More than 70 percent of all students will attend some college." I'd previously read that it was 50 percent. What the heck business do students below the mean in cognitive ability have in attending college? Charles Murray in Real Education says only 10 percent of the population should be going to college, but he could settle for 20 percent. That roughly means that you'd have an I.Q. of 110 or so, which is about the minimum that you need to learn and understand algebra, according to some research. There really need to be more vocational educational options. The way that a college degree has replaced a high school degree has just put a lot of people in the job market with college degrees but with skills equal to what a high school degree used to guarantee. And with six-figure student loan debt.

    I've seen that medical data before, and it always seems stunning, especially if you look at the numbers over a number of years. The speed of the transformation is crazy.

    Of course, that makes me wonder if something isn't off about it. Has anyone made any counter-arguments that would call into question using the data as a proxy for racial demographics in France?

    The medical data could be off a small factor. The testing procedures are based on subjective questionnaires, and often when in doubt the test is performed.

    I base my observation of France partially on what one sees on the streets, now even in rural areas. Paris seems around 50% Third World, with some districts much more so. Marseille has been Third World-like for a generation. Lyon, Bordeaux, Montpellier are better, but the menacing presence is quite noticeable there too. I understand that visuals overstate the numbers, but it is hard to argue with what is in front of one’s eyes.

    The younger population is approaching 20-25% Third Worlders. The way population replacement works is that at some point their is a literal tsunami that overwhelms the native population. France is in a transition period where people can see what they prefer to see. E.g. if one goes to richer, remoter suburbs the ‘Frenchness’ has been preserved. There is also an irrational hope that ‘assimilation’ will fix it. The problem is that assimilation has historically worked best with the initial migrants, the best educated, most motivated, small numbers. France is now getting the follow-up waves – the loser cousins, in-laws, random hustlers, anyone who can get there – those generally never assimilate because they actually hate their new homes (as they hated their old ones).

    This is a catastrophe and Macron’s talk will not do anything. It is meant as a distraction. We shouldn’t get distracted.

Hypocrite Hillary Clinton says she loves Blacks with all her heart and she will do everything for them -- except live in a town that has large numbers of Blacks in it.

    I am sure Hillary Clinton, while Secretary of State, had a fun time while in France making fun of all the dumb French and Americans who have to live in towns and cities inundated by Blacks and other non-Whites. I bet the French ruling class rats laughed along with Hillary Clinton when they described the nice all French towns they lived in compared to the regular French people of modest means who had to live surrounded by the Third World invaders.

    My racist impression of Africans is that they're generally happy doing nothing. As long as they can get away with doing nothing, that's what they'll do. Happily.

    Perhaps the Moslem North Africans are different and perhaps you're referring to Middle Easters. I don't know if Islam brings any satisfaction to its adherents or not. Maybe not enough of them actually believe and follow its tenets to make for much difference in their outlook in life.

    I hate to defend the Hildabeest but European governments were also eager to get rid of Gadaffi.

    I still don't know what that war was all about, but suspect it was just the settling of old scores dating back to the 1980s. Younger people may not be aware that Gadaffi was a huge PITA back then, and he was probably a bigger nuisance for Europeans than Americans.

    The current generation of French/British/Italian politicians all remember that era and must have jumped at the opportunity to get even. This was dumb and short-sighted, but well, that's human nature.

    Khadaffi wanted to de-Dollarize oil trade, which put him on the outs with the US. Total (French) and Eni (Italian) wanted to cut middle-man out of oil trade and exploration in Libya. Put the three together at that juncture in time, and you have a NATO war of aggression for economic purposes wrapped up in the dressing of a humanitarian aid intervention.

    Very sorry to hear that. Like–i’m guess–a lot of Americans i had the vague feeling the French had more a sense of themselves and French women were a bit classier.

    Anglo women have taken the full brunt of PC and Hollyweird propagandizing and a fair portion seem to have been brainwashed into being quite fine with being mudsharks. It’s an incredible change during my short life.

    My single–very brief–exposure to France (entirely in Paris) was very depressing vis-a-vis the demographics and the slumminess and decay visible travelling through the suburbs. But i did not notice particularly rampant mudsharkery. The French looking gals seemed to be with French looking guys.

    Macron is talking like a responsible pro-border security politician should talk, unlike Trump who all too often incites people. It almost doesn't even matter whether Macron is sincere or not on the issue. At the very least he's accepted that the issue has moved well back to the right, where it should have been all along. Now it's acceptable for other politicians to say similar things and it's all but mandatory for most French politicians to match his rhetoric.

    It is hard to come up with a ruling class elite that has done more harm to its population than the globalist, open-border liberals in the last 20-25 years. After all replacing and marginalising the whole white, European majority population is about as evil as one can think off. Yes, Europeans were poor in the past, they were oppressed, they were even murdered in mindless conflicts - but there was always the basic deal that a native population gets to live in their homes, people can have families, and the ruling state provides basic security and stability.

    Breaking that deal with intentional population replacement policies goes beyond what ever happened before. I wonder what the consequences will be once the reality of what has been done hits most people.

France is in a transition period where people can see what they prefer to see. E.g. if one goes to richer, remoter suburbs the ‘Frenchness’ has been preserved.

     


    There is also an irrational hope that ‘assimilation’ will fix it. The problem is that assimilation has historically worked best with the initial migrants, the best educated, most motivated, small numbers. France is now getting the follow-up waves – the loser cousins, in-laws, random hustlers, anyone who can get there – those generally never assimilate because they actually hate their new homes (as they hated their old ones).

     

    If One Goes To Richer, Remoter Suburbs The 'Frenchness' Has Been Preserved.

    Hillary Clinton went out of her way to find a rich, remote suburb of New York City where the 'Whiteness' has been preserved.

    Hillary Clinton moved to the mostly White town of Chappaqua, New York in order to avoid having to live around Blacks and other non-Whites. Hypocrite Hillary Clinton says she loves Blacks with all her heart and she will do everything for them -- except live in a town that has large numbers of Blacks in it.

    I am sure Hillary Clinton, while Secretary of State, had a fun time while in France making fun of all the dumb French and Americans who have to live in towns and cities inundated by Blacks and other non-Whites. I bet the French ruling class rats laughed along with Hillary Clinton when they described the nice all French towns they lived in compared to the regular French people of modest means who had to live surrounded by the Third World invaders.

    The ruling classes in each and every European Christian nation must be removed from power.

    Clintons will for generations be remembered as the opportunistic and hypocritical scum who made their living by destroying the societies they came from. Blair, Hollande, Merkel, etc… provided the chorus to keep the insanity going.

    French ruling class rats laughed along with Hillary Clinton when they described the nice all French towns they lived in compared to the regular French people of modest means who had to live surrounded by the Third World invaders.

    It is hard to come up with a ruling class elite that has done more harm to its population than the globalist, open-border liberals in the last 20-25 years. After all replacing and marginalising the whole white, European majority population is about as evil as one can think off. Yes, Europeans were poor in the past, they were oppressed, they were even murdered in mindless conflicts – but there was always the basic deal that a native population gets to live in their homes, people can have families, and the ruling state provides basic security and stability.

    Breaking that deal with intentional population replacement policies goes beyond what ever happened before. I wonder what the consequences will be once the reality of what has been done hits most people.

    I hate to defend the Hildabeest but European governments were also eager to get rid of Gadaffi.

    I still don't know what that war was all about, but suspect it was just the settling of old scores dating back to the 1980s. Younger people may not be aware that Gadaffi was a huge PITA back then, and he was probably a bigger nuisance for Europeans than Americans.

    The current generation of French/British/Italian politicians all remember that era and must have jumped at the opportunity to get even. This was dumb and short-sighted, but well, that's human nature.

    Anonymous:

    The Europeans were first out of the gate to get rid of Gaddafi. Their air forces proved unequal to the task. That’s why the American air services were then assigned the task. Unfortunately, they accomplished it.

    And unfortunately, the rest is history.

    British media is especially bad when it comes to shoe horned diversity and especially interracial couples. In the case of Black Mirror, the creator of the show is married to a Bengali woman, so that might have something to do with it.

    Downton Abbey is a great example.

    How about “Darkest Hour” with the coal-black African/Englishman quoting Shakespeare to Churchill on the Underground (admittedly not BBC, but…)?

  151. He is outflanking both the far-right’s National Front and the conventional right, both of whom make immigration their war cry. Mr. Macron is depriving them of the issue.

    That is how it’s supposed to work. Political leaders are supposed to adopt popular policy positions. Populism is fueled when the leaders are completely out of alignment with mainstream viewpoints and populist revolts should dissipate when the leadership re-aligns itself within mainstream viewpoints.

    I wouldn’t label this as “outflanking” which suggests some unexpected tactic. Macron is simply moderating to more normal mainstream policy positions.

    Perhaps they've been chastised by popular movements, but I would've expected them to moderate long ago--for their own sake if not on behalf of their people--were these normal times. Though perhaps times are never normal like that.

  152. @Intelligent Dasein
    Your point is well taken. I agree that getting the invaders out of Europe and America by any means necessary would be a good thing. Macron may have inadvertently scored an own-goal (from the globalist perspective) on the immigration issue. He may have, as you and other commenters have suggested, shifted the Overton window and freed others to speak more openly about the subject. But unless the political will to halt and deport is really present, it will be impossible to consolidate these vague motions into any real and effective action, and that's what makes the words a double-edged sword.

    Reading Macron's heart isn't just some airy test of ideological purity, it is the criterion of success. Unless his heart is really in it, well, he won't be making that mistake again.

    We've been through something similar with Trump, who repeatedly promised to end DACA on "day one" of his administration. This he easily could have done, for DACA is not even law; it is nothing but an executive order which Trump could have rescinded with a mere wave of his imperial hand. But not only did he not end it, he is currently negotiating to regularize it and amnesty the (D)reamers.* Why would he do this?

    Clearly his rhetoric was never serious, and any lingering notions that he is playing 4D chess are invalidated by the longstanding, deeply entrenched nature of the 180. It was only a few months into the administration that Trump tweeted out, "Does anyone really want to deport decent, hardworking people?" or something like that (I'm quoting from memory here). This was nothing but the same extremely hackneyed open-borders talking point, reflected in shallow Trumpian waters. Not only was Trump swayed away from his campaign promises, but he is now trying to sway us with the cheapest and crudest tactics imaginable, i.e. the sort that seem to work on him.

    Somebody up-thread mentioned Lindsey Graham's cuddling up to Trump as an interesting development. It's clear that Graham and the rest of the Deep State minions have figured out how to play him like a fiddle. All you have to do is flatter him, tell him that he can accomplish X but nobody else can, and you can get him to do any X. Trump will serve up DACA on a silver platter just so he can get the credit for doing something Obama couldn't do, and this, for him, is "winning." It has nothing to do with helping the country, only with expanding his ego.

    Trump and Macron are similar in the sense that they are both shysters who are stealing the issues people really care about and using them to advance their vain personal ambitions. I think in each case the solution is the same: the Real Right needs to steal the issues back and run candidates who actually believe in them, who will be what Trump pretended to be but wasn't. As difficult as it is to read hearts, the heart, I'm afraid, is everything.

    * The bald-faced euphemism "Dreamers" is rendered here as (D)reamers---as in Democratic reamers---because that's in fact what they are. I wouldn't mind seeing this convention take hold among a wider sphere of Alt-Right mavens.

    When will people realize that Trump is a DEALMAKER.

    Securing the southern border, cutting the lottery and chain migration, merit-based immigration is his goal. Did ANYONE seriously believe that Trump had ANY intention of building a 2,000 mile wall on the border?

    In the US voting ID is passively protected. You guess a name and they cross it out. Somebody else tries to use that name, they’re too late. One thing that can consistently be said of dead people is that they have names. Most of our population does not vote, so if you can identify a likely non-voter, literally nothing prevents you from voting under their name, and you will almost certainly never be caught. This is a joke system with self-explanatory vulnerabilities. Mexico has active and positive voting ID protection, they have a voter ID with state of the art biometrics. Voting in Mexico like an American would get you imprisoned.

    It was simply the taking out of an independent, relatively strong Arab nation-state, which are seen as a threat to Israel. It didn't help that Qaddafi was a proponent of overall Arab solidarity, also a threat to Israel.

    Ghadaffi was a murderous bum, not in the Saddam class though, but a pretty good Libyan leader. A lot of infrastructure improvements, the Great Man-Made River project, he gave up his nuclear projects and his deal with Berlusconi protected Italy from illegal infiltrators.

    We should consider the possibility that was the goal. The story line about Libya suggests that Clinton-Obama-Sarkozy... were simply stupid. I agree that they are not very smart, but in a different way than traditional stupid-stupid. The pressure on Europe to admit African migrants in large numbers has been very strong: from cheap labor and social work lobbies, multi-cultural dreamers, but above all from African countries themselves. To be allowed to migrate to Europe (or US) is an obsession for middle and upper middle class Africans. Obviously, one way to control them and their resources is to allow the migration.

    Macron was speaking to Upper Volta students, presumably upper middle class elites of their country. They were the ones who demanded easy visas, in effect a permission to move to Europe. Macron response tells us how he thinks. He said 'how would I explain that to my middle class?' He doesn't think moving millions of Africans to France is a bad idea, he just thinks it is 'politically' difficult. That is better than being a complete idiot, but not by much. The moment Macron could keep open borders with minimal cost, he would do so.

    The plan is to replace (or fully dilute) white Europeans. Macron has bought into that plan. The details and speeches don't change anything.

    This has greatly angered many in Israel, and especially those who do not want East Jerusalem to be set aside as the capital of a Palestinian state.

    Mr Philippe has also controversially backed the publication of anti-Semitic essays by the author Louis-Ferdinand Destouches, better known as Celine, despite fury from France’s sizeable Jewish community.

    Macron is out-flanking nobody and he ain't depriving no political party of the immigration issue. Macron is a globalizer puppet whore for the globalizer bankers.

    Macron does know that the global asset bubbles created by the ECB, the Fed, the Bank of England, the Bank of Japan, the Bank of China and other central banks will soon implode. Macron learned enough about the shady shit the bankers pull while being a kept whore at one of them to understand that a massive global financial implosion is on the way.

    The French Deep State might have contingency plans for a wide scale foreigner removal program if it becomes necessary to protect the legitimacy and existence of the French state.

    “The French Deep State might have contingency plans for a wide scale foreigner removal program if it becomes necessary to protect the legitimacy and existence of the French state.”

    When Reagan bombed Libya in retaliation for the Berlin nightclub bombing in 1986, F-111 bombers based in the UK were used along with other forces.
    The French refused to allow the planes to use French airspace, so they were routed out into the Atlantic and then into the Med over Gibraltar. One was shot down over the Gulf of Sidra.
    The Italian Prime minister admitted that he had warned Ghaddaffi of the attack in time for the Libyans to prepare.
    So apparently the Europeans didn’t think Gaddhaffi was such a problem at the time.
    As for reasons, oil money is the answer you are looking for.

    The French were themselves bombing Libya in 1986:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ouadi_Doum_air_raid

    That the French didn’t trust the U.S. and didn’t want to get involved in U.S. military adventures doesn’t mean they liked Gadaffi.

    And given Gadaffi’s well-known reputation for sponsorship of terrorists in Europe, the Italians and other Europeans were understandably reluctant to become complicit in the American attack, as for obvious geographic reasons Libyan retaliation would have fallen on them rather than the U.S.

    The British, Belgians, West Germans, and others had their own disputes with Gadaffi back then. He was a major headache for European governments at that time.

    That said, in the 1990s he mellowed out and eventually became a good neighbor. This 1980s stuff was water under the bridge by the time of the Arab Spring. It was wrong and stupid to overthrow him
