Jean Raspail, the famed French explorer and writer, has passed away at the age of 94. This man is famous in our circles, not just in France but around the world, for his controversial 1973 novel The Camp of the Saints, which imagined what would happen if 1 million Third-World immigrants suddenly landed on the southern French coast.

Apparently, the head French counterespionage in the 1980s, Alexandre de Marenches, gave a copy of the novel to President Ronald Reagan. My own grandfather gave a copy to my father. This is a classic of Western identity under siege.

ORDER IT NOW

Raspail in fact was a man varied interests. He cannot be accused of being an ignorant xenophobe. He spent many years of his life on various expeditions getting to know exotic cultures, whether exploring the Inca heartlands and Tierra del Fuego, recording the deplorable social conditions of the Redskins of the United States, or living in Japan. As with many thoughtful Westerners, knowledge of the beauties and richness of distant peoples went hand-in-hand with a greater appreciation for his own Western identity. Raspail has won many prizes over the years for his bountiful and diverse literary work.

With that, I leave you with a translation of one of Raspail’s few public pronouncements, an article published in Le Figaro newspaper on 17 June 2004

• • •

The Fatherland Betrayed by the Republic

I circled around this theme like a dog-handler around a parcel bomb. It is hard to approach it frontally without it exploding in your face. There is the risk of civil death. And yet, this is the crucial question. I hesitated. All the more so given that in 1973, in publishing The Camp of the Saint, I said just about everything on the topic. I don’t have much to add, other than the fact that I think the goose is cooked.

I am convinced that our fate as Frenchmen is sealed, because “they are at home in my home” ([according to French Socialist President François] Mitterrand), within a “Europe whose roots are as much Islamic as Christian” ([according to French conservative President Jacques] Chirac), because the situation is irreversibly moving towards the final swing in the 2050s which will see the “native French” become reduced to the more elderly half of the country’s population, the rest being made up of Africans, Maghrebi or Black, and all sorts of Asians hailing from the inexhaustible reservoir of the Third World, with a strong Islamic majority, including Jihadis and fundamentalists, the latter dance only just beginning.[1]The delicate imam of Vénissieux, thanks to birthright citizenship, has alone produced sixteen little French citizens. (Raspail’s footnote.)

France is not the only nation concerned. All of Europe is marching towards death. There is no shortage of warnings: notably a report from the United Nations (which is overjoyed by this development), the indispensable works of Jean-Claude Chesnais and Jacques Dupâquier;[2]A French demographer and demographic historian, respectively. – GD but these are systematically downplayed and the INED [National Institute for Demographic Studies] is pushing disinformation. The almost sepulchral silence of the media, governments, and European institutions on the demographic crash of the EU-15[3]The then-members of the EU, covering most of Western Europe. is one of the most astonishing phenomena of our time. When there is a birth in my family or among my friends, I cannot look at this baby without thinking of what is being prepared for the fecklessness of our “governance” and what he will have to face when he grows up . . .

Not to mention that the “native French” – constantly beat over the head to throbbing drumbeat of human rights, of “welcoming others,” of the “sharing” dear to our bishops, etc, boxed in by a vast arsenal of repressive “antiracist” legislation, conditioned from infancy to embrace cultural and behavioral “métissage” [mixing], and “plural France”[4]La France plurielle, a euphemism for “multicultural France,” when the word “multicultural” still suffered from bad press in our country. and all the excesses of the old Christian charity – will have no other choice than to tighten their belts and melt without complaint into the mold of the new French “citizen” of 2050. All the same, let us not despair. Certainly, there will still be what ethnologists call isolates, powerful minorities, perhaps 15 million Frenchmen and not necessarily all of white race, who will still speak our language in its more-or-less preserved integrity and who will stubbornly remain imbued with our culture and our history, as passed down from generation to generation. But it will not be easy for them.

In the face of the various “communities” which we see emerge today on the ruins of integration (or rather its gradual inversion: we are the ones who today integrate “the other,” and no longer the opposite), who in 2050 will be definitively institutionally settled, [the French minority] will in a sense, I am looking for the right term, be a community of French continuity. This community will be founded on families, fertility, the endogamy of survival, its own schools, parallel networks of solidarity, and perhaps even geographical zones, its own slices of territory and neighborhoods, or even its safe zones[5]Places de sûreté, a reference to the areas in which the Protestant minority was allowed to safely resided during France’s Wars of Religion. and, why not, its Christian and Catholic faith, if by chance that cement still holds.

This will not be a pleasant situation. The clash will occur sooner or later. Something like the elimination of the kulaks through the appropriate legal means. And then what?

Then France will only be peopled by hermit crabs, whatever their origins, who will live in the shells abandoned by a forever extinct species which was called the French species. A species which in no way prefigured, by God knows what genetic metamorphosis, the species that will bear this name in the second half of this century. The process has already begun.

There is a second possibility which I can only express in private and which would require me to consult my lawyer: that the last isolates resist to the point of engaging in a kind of reconquista, no doubt different from the Spanish one, but inspired by the same motives. A dangerous novel remains to be written on this subject. I will not take charge of this, I have already given. Its author is probably not yet born, but this book will see the light of day at just the right time, of that I am sure . . .

What I don’t understand, and what plunges me in the depths of an afflicted confusion, is why so many informed Frenchmen and so many French politicians are knowingly and methodically, I don’t dare say cynically, contributing to the immolation of a certain France (let us not say “eternal,” which disgusts certain beautiful souls) on the altar of a exacerbated utopian humanism. I ask myself the same question concering these omnipresent associations defending the rights of this, the rights of that, all these leagues, these societies of thought, these subsidized little offices, these networks of manipulators who have infiltrated the machinery of the State (education, judiciary, political parties, unions, etc.), these innumerable petitioners, these correctly consensual media and all these “intelligent people” who day after day and inject with impunity their numbing substance into the still-healthy organism of the French nation.

Even if I can almost credit them with some degree of sincerity, I sometimes have trouble conceding that these are my countrymen. The word renegade begins to come to mind, but there is another explanation: they confuse France with the Republic. “Republican values” are evoked in their infinite variation, we learn that to the point of disgust, but there is never a reference to France. Yet France is first a carnal homeland. The Republic, on the other hand, is but a form of government, synonymous for them with ideology, a capital “I” ideology, the great ideology. It seems, then, that they are betraying the former for the sake of the latter.

Amidst the flotsam of references which I have accumulated in thick folders in support of this assessment, here is one which under friendly airs is quite instructive on the extent of the damage. An extract from a speech by Laurent Fabius at the 17 May 2003 Socialist congress of Dijon: “When the Marianne[6]French town halls typically feature a bust of Marianne, the symbol of the French Revolution. – Guillaume Durocher of our city halls will have taken on the beautiful face of a young Frenchwoman of immigrant origin, that day France will have taken a step forward by fully living the values of the Republic . . .”

Since we are quoting people, here are two more, to conclude: “No amount of atom bombs will be able to prevent the flood made up of millions of human beings who will one day leave the southern and poor portion of the world, to land in the relatively open spaces of the northern hemisphere, in search of survival.” ([Algerian] President [Houari] Boumediene, March 1974.)

And this one, drawn from the twentieth chapter of the Book of Revelation: “When the thousand years are completed, will be gathered the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth and the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. And they will go up the breadth of the earth and surround the camp of the saints and the beloved city:”

    I wonder if his Catholic faith was genuine or if it was more the Charles Maurras-kind of veneration for tradition. He certainly seemed to think that some Christian virtues as understood today are basically suicidal on a national level.
    Anyway, he was a prophet for having discerned the end point of this rotten liberal civilization already in 1973. By now it should be obvious to everybody, but most Europeans apparently are too far too gone to understand anything at all. Pathetic race of decadent weaklings.

    I sort of looked at this optimistically. Amidst the zombified French population, a large minority that stubbornly keeps its admiration and preservation of French culture and language. But of course they will be ruthlessly victimised as Nazis and French language identified as hate speech. One thought their victimisation will be based on such ridiculous premises, that it will become cool and even necessary by all races and religions to reject it as a false and infantile religion. That is of course why the Holocaust has ever increasing prominence and its skeptics ever more persecuted. David Irving has announced his book on the biography of Himmler is coming out in book form in a new week. Its title is from a speech by Himmler that New Zealand Prime Minister said in English identically in her war against Covid-19. The New Zealand army now manages that.

  5. Europeans will have to start consulting with longstanding historical diasporas – the ones that are net contributors to their host countries – like the Armenians, Greeks, Assyrians, Lebanese and Zoroastrians about how to maintain a national community across space and time. In fact, modern technology and transport has made this easier to maintain; however, it also has its downsides as it exposes the youth to foreign pleb culture. The lessons these people have learnt over the centuries will be invaluable to the ethnic French as they become an ever diminishing minority in France and presumably some scatter to other French parts of the world like Quebec or even small enclaves in non-French countries.

    I purchased the English translation, kindle edition, from Amazon in September 2015. Guess what; you can’t buy it from Amazon any more. You can still ‘look inside’ it, but it is flagged as ‘Item under review’ and ‘This title is not currently available for purchase’. As of this comment, Amazon UK will still let you purchase its single equivalent paperback edition – used and from a third party seller – for the princely sum of £218 (@ $270).

    As starkly outlined in George Orwells earlier and similarly prophetic ‘1984’, what remains of western cultural is being systematically re-written, censored and destroyed – with the self-hating, self-righteous, ‘woke’ generation of useful idiots seemingly determined to be in the the vanguard of their own destruction. They clearly believe that ‘the revolution’ will be kind to them because they are such good, kind and enlightened people – tragedy on a truly monumental scale

    Dear Guillaume, thank you very much for translating this famous article for the English-speaking only audience of this site, an article I had read about in the past and that I had never managed to find translated into English. Jean Raspail was a great man, may he rest in peace and may not his predictions come true no matter how impossible it seems now that White Christian France and White Christian Europe will survive. The republic not just betrayed France, it destroyed France.

  9. Rurik says:

    conditioned from infancy to embrace cultural and behavioral “métissage” [mixing],

    now, now..

    what’s this ‘cultural and behavioral’ fluff? Pft

    we all know what kind of “métissage” it’s all about, now don’t we?

    And if the French people don’t do it willingly, then the French government will have to step in with “coercive measures” to force French women to have black and brown babies.

    This is the president of France, (((Nicolas Sarkozy))), saying that French women will be forced to breed with blacks, if they don’t do so willingly.

    What I’d like to know, is if Jean Raspail ever had the moral courage, to look at the world today, and say the Nazis were right.

    Because I suspect that he and the French people, (like the Brits and Americans and so many others), are soooo enamored by their vain conceits about being sooo heroic during WWII, against ‘the worst evil the world has ever known’, (blah, blah..) that they’d sit like genocidal cowards and allow the Jews to force-breed their daughters with blacks, so long as they could continue to delude themselves that they were the good guys during that war.

    IOW what ever you want to say about Hitler, he was right that the Jews are a deadly threat, and will ultimately lead to a depraved genocide of your people for all eternity.

    But most Frenchmen and women would prefer to see their daughters force-raped and force-bred with blacks, than to think or say something that’s politically incorrect, even when it’s obvious.

  12. that the last isolates resist to the point of engaging in a kind of reconquista

    A classic statement and testament to a great man, a man of integrity and fighting spirit.

    In my view, though, the last isolate was Christ, who at His passing said, “It is finished.” He will accomplish the reconquista at His holy Second Coming, when the world is judged and God’s people reclaimed for the Father of all.

    For He does not fight for lands or banks or money or power, but for love and righteousness and the rebirth of His followers in the living Spirit of God. It seems to me in this world there is no place to turn. As Raspail says, “I think the goose is cooked.” “Huis Clos,” to quote a man of different temperament. But in Him the door is open.

  13. The book is readily available in any German bookstore – delivery 1 day after being commissioned. Publisher Antaios. Their books are all very well made and reasonably priced – a decent publisher.

    What strikes me as quite remarkable is, that Jean Raspail knew, just how diverse the cultures and mentalities of people around the world are from experience, before he wrote The Camp of the Saints (what an oscillating title!).

    PS
    Jean Raspail reminds me a little bit of the German writer and entomologist Ernst Jünger. He too knew quite a bit about the world from experience – and travels. Even though – the older he grew the more so – he specialized in ants, spiders, snakes, amphibians, and the like – plants, vegetables (he was a gardener up until he was 100 years old). – Most beautiful descriptions – in his diaries 70 verweht, for example of the little critters and of plants too.

    Substitute any other country for “France” and “Republic” with one of the dozens “isms” floating around the political cesspools, and this applies to our (((Western liberal democracies))). Every time I hear a politician talk about “values”, I want to barf.

    The loaded term ‘racist’, and it’s close derivatives, should never have been accepted nor tolerated in the public discourse.

    If a person wants to talk about abuse between races, ethnicities, and peoples, and doing what can within reason be done to prevent it, sure, but thought terminating cliches such as ‘racist’, which has as it’s actual target the legitimate concept and reality of race itself, no.

    A society accepting the poisonous and invented term ‘racist’ (and close derivatives) is like an individual foolishly accepting the term ‘selfism’.

    Selfism sounds bad, like selfish.

    Before long, and even more so if the term was used as a bludgeon by others against this individual (under cover of helping them, naturally), he or she on the receiving end would be paralyzed, and barely able to stammer out their own name, let alone act in anyway in their own self interest, as having to do with self that would be ‘selfist’ and ‘selfism’.

    So it has been with the loaded term ‘racist’ and the legitimate concept and reality of race, and peoples acting with their own racial interest in mind.

    Below is on the subject of loaded language and the ‘thought terminating cliche’, much of this learned when they studied how the Red Chinese first psychologically broke, and then indoctrinated, US POW’s in North Korea. [Recall here the plot line of the 1962 movie The Manchurian Candidate. See link below.]

    ‘Loading the language’ is one of the eight criteria of ‘thought reform’, aka mind control.

    Loading the Language. The group interprets or uses words and phrases in new ways so that often the outside world does not understand. This jargon consists of thought-terminating clichés, which serve to alter members’ thought processes to conform to the group’s way of thinking.

    Though not mentioned here, a cliché can consist of a single word:

    A thought-terminating cliché (also known as a semantic stop-sign, a thought-stopper, bumper sticker logic, or cliché thinking) is a form of loaded language, commonly used to quell cognitive dissonance. Depending on context in which a phrase (or cliché) is used, it may actually be valid and not qualify as thought-terminating; it does qualify as such when its application intends to dismiss dissent or justify fallacious logic. Its only function is to stop an argument from proceeding further, in other words “end the debate with a cliche… not a point.”

    The term was popularized by Robert Jay Lifton in his 1961 book Thought Reform and the Psychology of Totalism, who called the use of the cliché, along with “loading the language”, as “The language of Non-thought”.

    Dr Robert J Lifton said:

    ‘The language of the totalist environment is characterized by the thought-terminating cliché. The most far-reaching and complex of human problems are compressed into brief, highly reductive, definitive-sounding phrases, easily memorized and easily expressed. These become the start and finish of any ideological analysis.’

    Hannah Arendt:

    Clichés, stock phrases, adherence to conventional, standardized codes of expression and conduct have the socially recognized function of protecting us against reality, that is, against the claim on our thinking attention that all events and facts make by virtue of their existence.”

    It is only happening in formerly White, Christian countries. (Are there formerly White countries that are not Christian? Bosnia, perhaps? Are Bosnians White?)

    Some may see it as the result of machinations of the Jews and the envy/anger of Africans and Arabs. Yes, possibly.

    But there is also another point, that just as Europeans abandon their traditions, they start to be invaded, pillaged, destroyed, many times even by themselves. Look at the sad spectacle of white Americans toppling down their own statues, their own past.

    I think it was Strindberg who observed, that things happen on another level, that the Turk and the Jew come when you give him space, and that when Europeans become Christians again, they will recover what is theirs, as if by magic.

    Well, maybe. And maybe not. But in the end, I think there is no need to be so pessimist. Some people can only destroy, they cannot create. When they go, we will build them again.

    “All things fall and are built again
    And those that build them again are gay.” (Yeats)

    Gay here of course must be understood as joyful, not homosexual. (Here there’s another thing that need to be recovered, our words.)

    Raspail returned to the true Church (true against both Protestantism and modernist, Bergoglian Catholicism), while Jünger converted to it in his hundredth year.

    That true Church is the Church of the Crusades and the Inquisition. It would have thrown the Moslems into the sea decades ago, and would have burned Bergoglio and his homo-effeminate followers (i.e. 98% of the bishops, but far fewer of the ordinary clergy) at the stake without scruple; indeed, with holy zeal.

    Do not, you unbelievers, mistake the decadent ruin which masquerades as the Church for the real article, which cannot die and will rise triumphant from the ruins of its own illusionary corpse.

    What you write here, Old Palo Altan, does not at all sound as if it was written in the spirit of Ernst Jünger or Jean Raspail. More like – Habacuc – Er stund und mas das land / Er schawet und zutrennet, die Heiden / Dasz der Welt Berge zuschemttert worden / und sich bücken mussten die Hügel in der Welt /

    But that was – – – – well before Christ.

  28. You are very likely right about Jünger, and indeed I would be in your debt could you but refer me to an explanation from the Great Man himself as to the origin and flowering of his conversion.

    (And that quote from Luther’s Bible sends chills down my spine … of awe before the image conjured up and admiration for that vigorous prose).

    But I have no doubt that I am entirely in the mode of a Jean Raspail, as of any other French gentleman of the Tradition. They are the hardest of the hard, and will not hesitate if given the opportunity and the means to annihilate their opponents (who are also ours), or those of their Tradition (which is ours too).

    Our enemy, we have all seen it now, wish us dead and our culture ground into the earth. The time for understanding, the time for dialogue, the time for moderation – all that is now the property of traitors like Bergoglio or Merkel and quaking weaklings like all too many others in the West.

    It is us or them, and I never much liked them anyway.

    Sorry for the late reply. At the time I found the book there were discussions about the changing demographics in Florida & California. Americans were complaining about the Spanish language spreading throughout the country. I noticed that the voting direction of these new immigrants was decidedly democrat.

    I then found out to my dismay & shock that we were letting in over one million third world immigrants a year who were mostly uneducated & poor. I saw then that this massive wave of people, like the people Raspail’s book, would eventually overwhelm the nation & destroy it.

    So to me…the novel was prophetic.

  31. Derb was a bit 10th Amendment proponent on the Social Issues. Obviously Derb knows what ails us!
