EARLIER: Record U.S. Border, U.K. Channel Immivasions. Why Now?

Across the white West—Spain, France, Ireland, England, and of course, the United States—illegal aliens are swarming across borders in numbers that constitute nothing less than an invasion. And though a shot won’t be fired, the consequences will be indistinguishable from military conquest. Meanwhile, the Ruling Classes do nothing to stop them. Indeed, they attack those who would stop our suicidal invade-the-world-invite-the-world foreign policy as the real enemies, the way disgraced British Prime Minister Boris Johnson attacked Tucker Carlson for “intimidating” the GOP on Ukraine, as his own country is invaded [‘What is it with this guy?’ Boris Johnson urges GOP to ignore Tucker Carlson on Russia, by Joel Gehrke, Washington Examiner, February 1, 2023]. The question: Why? Why are the Ruling Classes in all these countries simply allowing their countries to be invaded, as VDARE’s Patrick Cleburne asked, at the same time? The only possible answer: The Great Replacement requires a multifront, coordinated attack.

Consider this survey:

  • U.S.A.

Border agents encountered more than 250,000 illegals just last month, more people than Russia used to invade Ukraine. In the first three months of fiscal 2023, the figure was a mind-numbing 717,660. President Joe Biden is refusing to enforce immigration law, and instead paroling them into the interior. He even plans to legalize illegals before they leave their own countries! The Chamber of Commerce’s top lobbyist is lurking around Congress to push an illegal-alien Amnesty [Top Chamber lobbyist talks Kevin McCarthy, immigration reform and ‘woke capitalism,’ by Theodoric Meyer and Leigh Ann Caldwell, Washington Post, January 13, 2023].

But despite the obvious Code Red condition at the border, “moderate” Republicans like Rep. Tony Gonzales of Texas squashed a bill to allow the Department of Homeland Security to stop illegals from entering if the government doesn’t have “operational control” of the border [Early rift over immigration exposes House GOP’s tough path to consensus, by Marianna Sotomayor and Theodoric Meyer, Washington Post, January 23, 2023]. The bill isn’t “Christian,” Gonzalez said. So in the worse-than-Weimar culture of the fallen United States, conservatives trot out the “Christian” line only when it’s time to shame the rubes into surrendering to the Treason Lobby.

  • Spain

In Spain, a Moroccan killed a church worker and injured a priest with a machete while yelling “Allahu Akbar” [The uncomfortable truth about Spain’s latest terror attack, by Jorge Gonzalez Gallarza, Unherd, February 1, 2023]. It certainly wouldn’t have happened under Franco, one reason the current regime disinterred the Spanish patriot’s corpse [Franco’s Body Is Exhumed, As Spain Struggles To Confront The Past, by Stephania Taladrid, New Yorker, October 26, 2019]. Naturally, the main political focus after a church is attacked in once-Catholic Spain is to blame nationalists and priests for daring to suggest that an Islamic invasion might not be good for Spaniards. As Vox leader Santiago Abascal pointed out:

Some open the doors to them, others pay for them and it’s the people who suffer. We can’t tolerate the spread of Islamism on our soil.

That common sense declaration is “wretched,” said Spain’s “social rights minister,” because it could “spread hatred towards a group that are already very stigmatized because of who they are” [Rightwing Spanish leaders under fire over anti-Islam comments after attack on churches, by Sam Jones, The Guardian, January 27, 2023].

We may assume that the minister would disapprove of Ferdinand and Isabella’s reconquista.

For a “stigmatized” group, foreigners have no problem putting down roots in Spain. Almost 12 percent of those in the country are foreigners, while the native Spanish population is actually declining [Growing number of foreigners drives Spain’s population rise, Local ES, January 25, 2023]. Spaniards are indeed being Replaced.

Many of the 5.5 million foreigners in Spain are European Union citizens, but Moroccans number 883,243. The EU provides money to Morocco to try to stem mass immigration, but as the Associated Press cooed:

That, however, hasn’t stopped thousands of migrants and refugees, including young Moroccans looking for a better future in Europe, from attempting a dangerous crossing of the Mediterranean, or a perilous Atlantic journey to the Canary Islands…

[Spain and Morocco renew ties with migration, business deals, by Mosa’ab Elshamy and Joseph Wilson, February 2, 2023]

  • France

France also faces “out-of-control” immigration, but Emmanuel Macron defeated Marine Le Pen, so he won’t do anything to stop it [France’s Macron faces electoral pressure over ‘out of control’ immigration, Arab News, February 2, 2023]. “Asylum” claims have jumped almost 30 percent, with the Republic distributing 320,330 residency permits last year.

In October, an Algerian woman who was supposed to have left the country murdered a 12-year-old French girl [French girl, 12, laid to rest, after ‘evil’ murder, France 24, October 24, 2022]. Mollie Tibbetts–style, her parents accused right-wing politicians of “exploiting” the case, once again using weapons of guilt and shame on the people who are trying to prevent these eminently predictable and inevitable crimes [Parents of slain girl beg French politicians not to exploit their daughter’s death, France 24, October 22, 2022].


The French government is considering an immigration bill that will supposedly toughen its laws [French cabinet to consider ‘balanced’ immigrant legislation, RFI, January 30, 2022]. Yet the bill is essentially an Amnesty. Macron’s government “wants to ease legalization for workers who are already in the country,” Le Monde’s Julia Pascual reported [What’s in the French government’s new immigration bill? February 1, 2023]. Inviting more cheap labor is especially sinister given that Macron wants to increase the retirement age, policies that the populist Marine Le Pen has shrewdly opposed [France sees bigger crowds on second strike day against Macron pension reforms, France24, January 31, 2023]. That might help the National Rally get more support from workers in the next election [Survey: Le Pen’s far-right party gaining credibility, especially among the right, by Davide Basso, Euractiv, December 16, 2022]. Moreover, the damage has been done: a third of the French population under 60 has immigrant ancestry [Studies: France is a melting pot but discrimination lurks, by Jade Le Deley, Associated Press , July 16, 2022].

Adieu, Marianne?

  • Britain

Britain’s Conservative Party seems utterly determined to destroy itself and the Union [Brexit has galvanized Welsh independence, by Martin Johnes, Unherd, February 2, 2023]. According to polls, a majority of voters want to replace the Conservative government in the next election, perhaps because the Tories have done nothing while in power except preside over an increase in legal immigration and an astounding “migrant” invasion across the English Channel [Two in three Britons say it is time for a change at the next election, Ipsos, January 30, 2023]. From June 2021 to June 2022, 1.1 million “migrants” arrived in the United Kingdom, 66 percent of them, or 704,000, from non-EU countries [Long-term international migration, provisional,]. The Ministry of Defence, which certainly isn’t defending the shores, reported that 1,000 landed on Channel dinghies in just one day in the fall.

Many are Albanians. So England’s rich cultural stew has a new vibrant ingredient that spices up dull Anglo-Saxon life by posting pictures of its kidnappings and beatings of rivals in the drug trade [Revealed: How Albanian gangsters fighting for control of the UK’s cannabis market are posting social media videos of kidnappings and beatings as a warning to rival gangs, by Tom Kelly, Daily Mail, October 21, 2022].

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, son of Hindu immigrants, is trying to end laws that give invaders the right to asylum. His critics say that would violate the 1951 Refugee Convention [Sunak at war over plot to tear up rules and ban illegal migrants from claiming UK asylum, by David Williamson, Express, January 29, 2023]. What was the point of Brexit if the country can’t even “take back control” over one of the most fundamental aspects of national sovereignty?

The “migrant” madness is such that Britain is under fire for losing unaccompanied “migrant” children [200 asylum-seeking children missing from U.K. care, sparking outrage, by Ellen Francis, Washington Post, January 26, 2023]. The boys were mostly Albanians, so other countries on the way to Britain could have provided “asylum.” Still, Britain faces charges of “racism” for providing insufficient accommodations for the invaders.

Despite a supposed deal between Britain and France to stop the Third World invasion craft, more keep arriving. The French coast guard is rescuing “migrants” on boats in the channel:

If the British government can send tanks and advanced weapons to Ukraine, it can defend its own coast. Allowing this invasion is a choice —a deliberate choice—by so-called Conservatives.

Boris Johnson’s attack on Tucker Carlson shows just disconnected from reality the British “conservatives” are. He’s worried about Ukraine—while the Border Force escorts boatloads of illegals to his country’s shores. That isn’t just irresponsible; it’s treason [White Renegade of the Year—2022, by Gregory Hood, American Renaissance, December 30, 2022].

  • Ireland

Even the Irish, who fought for freedom for centuries, face an existential threat more dangerous than even Oliver Cromwell [Was the fight for Irish independence pointless, by Gregory Hood, American Renaissance, January 25, 2023]. The government seems utterly determined to import “migrants” despite a housing crisis, public protests, and strain on already buckling private services [Private entities called on for asylum accommodation, by Ailbhe Conneely, RTE, January 30, 2023]. Its solution to protests is not to listen to its own citizens—but to ban the protests [Call for ban on protests outside refugee accommodation and people’s homes, by Sean McCarthaigh, Irish Times, January 30, 2023].

Ireland’s Minister for Integration, Joe O’Brien, says that Ireland must accept 80,000 “migrants” this year, the vast majority of whom will be Ukrainians [Ireland should prepare to receive over 80,000 migrants in 2023, Minister Says, SchengenVisa, January 25, 2023].

The Irish Government’s “Project 2040” says the population will grow by 1 million to 5.5 million by then. Mass immigration certainly won’t help the government meet “our responsibility to future generations of Irish men and Irish women”—because the immigrants aren’t Irish.

A kind of nihilism lies behind the policy of importing “migrants” that is especially obscene, given that Irish political parties grew out of the nationalist struggle for independence.

And this nihilism can be found in leaders throughout the West. Ruling Class Elites acknowledge that immigration is a problem, at least in the technical sense. Yet they pretend they are helpless to stop it. It’s a striking contrast to the remarkable speed and power with which they tackle other problems: the “pandemic,” “systemic racism” and, as Johnson wants us to do, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The plain fact is that this Great Replacement invasion is centrally orchestrated and financed by the United Nations and non-governmental organizations, and managed by people-smugglers disguised as “migrant” activists.

The immigration rush into Europe in 2015, set in motion because Angela Merkel didn’t want to see sad images on television, caused devastating harm to the Continent. However, it also paved the way for President Donald Trump’s run for president and a larger populist, nationalist movement centered on immigration.

This time, we face a far more centrally controlled social media environment, financial deplatforming, lawfare, and countless other attacks from hostile rulers lashing out in hatred against the peoples they so despise.

Yet the issue remains and is moving to the fore in every Western country. We have the same foes, the same problems, and ultimately, will share the same destiny.

Western Man, and Western Civilization, will rise or fall as one.

    The Covid ‘vaccination’ campaign and the associated authoritarianism was meant to establish the principle that they can restrict our comings and goings, inject us with whatever they please and make us carry ID cards/tracking devices (mobile phones) everywhere we go. Pilot schemes for ‘climate lockdowns’ have already been scheduled.

    With mass migration they are establishing that we no longer have any ownership over the country of our birth, nor any traditional rights associated with it. We are merely tenants and they are the landlords, if they want to move some other people in, we have no say in the matter. Sorry but this country is earmarked for redevelopment (and if you don’t like it we will label you a racist) Mass migration also facilitates divide and rule, a country of warring ghettos is unlikely to unite against their oppressors. How did people think globalisation would end?

    The ongoing conflicts are (always) against peoples that still own most of their countries real estate and natural resources. We will own nothing and we will be happy (or else?) They want it all. Is the ongoing conflict in Ukraine a spanner in the works or a part of the plan? It makes little difference really, its going to be bad for us either way.

    At least some French beauties are defying the invasion.

    Where are the American tough guys, where are the Eastwoods, Bronsons, Stallones, and Schwarzeneggers ?

    Oh no Mr. Kirkpatrick, its the contrary of ‘nihilism’, its a planned exercise, they are all following a script handed to them by the elephant in the room, which you dont dare to mention: the ethnic minority fighting for open borders in every country, except in their own.

    she also spoke out against the me-too movement. her real crime is being an unapologetic heterosexual woman and unfortunately they just don’t make them like that anymore.

  6. Portugal is at least 10% African and Spain is even more. Both gave a free pass to all who accepted Catholicism.
    After centuries of Muslim rule this should not be surprising to anyone. When the North African’s were expunged from Spain and Portugal, both countries made a conscious decision to eradicate Arabic words from their languages. The Portuguese were more through, while the Spanish language still has about 25 to 30% of Arabic words.

  7. But not of Israel, so guess who’s in power? White Nakba, yes, just like Palestinian Nakba was engineered by Zion.

    BroNat is surely one of the ten greatest Jews ever.

    The official Catholic church would be happy with a 20% European America as long as the legal/illegal Hispaniola’s and Africans filled the pews.

  9. anonymous[235] • Disclaimer says:

    There is some hope out of central and eastern Europe, and actually out of events in Israel as well.

    In Austria, the anti-immigration far-right Freedom Party of Austria (FPÖ) has surged to 1st place in national polling, plus winning in local elections, under leader Herbert Kickl. Their ascendancy is also due thanks to opposition to covid lockdowns, opposition to Russia sanctions, and a demand Austria be neutral in the Ukraine-Russia war.

    In Hungary the popular anti-immigration and Ukraine-war-avoiding Viktor Orbán, has undertaken a massive sudden purge of high-ranking military officers, pushing many into early retirement. Speculation is widespread that the government acted pre-emptively to block pro-NATO, pro-EU military officers, who might be tempted to join a coup in order to force Hungary into Western positions on immigration and the Ukraine insanity.

    The new government in Israel under Netanyahu, involves ascendancy of conservative right-wing Jews who are increasingly denouncing American Jews for their pro-immigration, pro-LGBT etc advocacy in the culture wars. Netanyahu himself is an ally of right-wing European anti-immigration parties and governments like that of Orbán. Jews are really in two global groups on the immigration question, globalists versus nationalists, and Netanyahu is beginning to solidify Israel as an ally of anti-immigration parties in white countries as well.

    The bill isn’t “Christian,” Gonzalez said

    Says the hypocritical beaner yet he says nothing about the horrible and unconstitutional treatment the Jan. 6th protestors have received. Again race matters. Gonzalez, a Latino, is far more sympathetic to Latino and other non-white illegal aliens than his own countrymen.

    How come nations like Spain, Germany and Italy who defeated murderous communist insurgencies are required to “confront their past” but nations who fell to communism and murdered millions of their own citizens in cold blood do not? That should tell us much about our Jew and goy ruling classes and where their political sympathies lie.

    This time, we face a far more centrally controlled social media environment, financial deplatforming, lawfare, and countless other attacks from hostile rulers lashing out in hatred against the peoples they so despise.

    This is all due to Jewish power and activism and facilitated by white cowardice.

  11. @E_Perez

    Mr. Perez, of the 4 Hollywood actors you mentioned, Bronson (born Charles Buchinsky) has been dead for close to 20 years. The other 3 are either aging boomers or pre-boomers (Eastwood is 92). Hollywood no longer makes movies celebrating tough White guys like Dirty Harry or Bronson’s character in the “Death Wish” series. It is now up to younger White people to save what’s left of Caucasians. Are they up to the task?

    The Brother Nathaniel clip ends: “With every Jew on Prozac, America does not stand a chance.”

    Antidepressants are a big part of our problem. The drugs make every user humorless and sheeplike.

    As many as one American in seven is on antidepressants. The fraction will be much larger among the elites disappointed as they are by the reality that wealth is not the bed of roses they imagined.

    Politicians should be required to produce blood and urine samples with results of the analysis publicly known.

  13. E_Perez says:

    These are “Hollywood tough guys”, movie machos, supposedly defending ideals. They shit in their pants when a Jew is raising an eyebrow and leave the real fight to tender women.

    Bardot suffered much for speaking out what these American pseudo machos never would dare to say publicly.

  14. The primary moral imperative of our era, one that was conjured up and is pushed relentlessly by our elites, is concern for and protection of the Other. The Other might be women or blacks (or anyone who is not white) or homosexuals or transsexuals or people from the Third World or non-Christians or even animals and the environment. White society, especially the white male, was terrible at dealing with the Other and can be blamed for all kinds of troubles, disasters, and even unrelentingly horrible tragedies. These include:

    • The Holocaust

    • Imperialism and colonialism

    • Slavery in America and the racism that produced the era of Jim Crow (which our elites believe extends into today)

    • The oppression of women and homosexuals and now transsexuals

    • Pollution and of course global warming

    • Chickens and other domesticated animals treated in terrible ways

    Notice that anyone who opposes this imperative in the slightest is automatically condemned as some kind of “hater.” Notice, too, that there is a lot of virtue signaling connected with all of this. Flying one’s private jet to a climate conference is not considered a bad thing (at least not by the elites who control the Megaphone). There is also a lot of craziness connected with it: people trying to be friends with grizzly bears, the guy who said he was married to a tree, people who are white pretending that they are really some other race or gender, declaring that math is racist, using made-up words like Latinx, and so on.

    But what it means for our borders is that they must be open. We must be open to letting the Other (in this case, people from the Third World) coming into our country. Whites are so awful that these people (who are not white) have a moral right to be here and in fact have a stronger right to be here than we do. This thinking is so strong that even those leaders who are against it find it hard to stop the invasion, because inevitably the cries of “racism” will drown out any rational discussion of the situation.

    And of course the big problem with this is that a mindless liking for the Other isn’t any better than a mindless hatred of the Other. Some of those Others being let in have no interest in merely being pawns of our elites and have their own goals. As I’ve pointed out at various times, we will likely be under Islamic law by the end of this century.

    Our elites are worse than Hitler.

  15. I favour immigration invasion as regards Europe and Canada? Why? It is only among recent immigrants, particularly the most enraged and hostile ones, that I can share my misgivings about a world government and about Zionist control. Even when they don’t agree, they are open to discussions on the subject, as they have been submitted to traditional schooling with punishments, marks, percentages, grammar, traditional math, not perpetual sex-ed kindergaten. In the West people hate lucid people on any subject, being called an intellectual is the supreme insult, while in most immigrant cultures it is still considered an achievement. Without recent immigrants around me as I write as of now I would be absolutely alone. Haitians like better real American White racists than wishy-washy do-gooders they see in the NGO’s. In Japan there is no such kind of immigration but globalist thought is the worst of the world.
