Earlier: Organized African Illegals Storm Pantheon In France, Two Days Before Bastille Day

The Panthéon is a grand 18th-century building in Paris where notable French people have been interred since the Revolution. Voltaire and Jean-Jacques Rousseau are there; so are mathematicians Lagrange and Condorcet, novelists Victor Hugo and Émile Zola, physicists Pierre and Marie Curie, and many other notables of French national culture.

It was therefore very shocking to see a mob of several hundred young men rioting in the Panthéon last Friday. These were all blacks, illegal aliens from West Africa, demanding legal residence in France. After several hours they were removed by police, with 37 arrests made.

Readers: watch the storming of the Panthéon below.

Then go to one of those Steve Sailer posts where Steve ponders what he calls “the world’s most important graph.

Then give me your odds on European civilization surviving this century.

    I very much doubt there will be any life on this planet in Keynes’s Long Term.

  2. Malla says:

    Why is YT surprised? YT fought for communists in WW2? YT gave aid money to the third world so that their population boomed. There has been infiltration into the West of outsiders since WW2. Before this mass migration, already many Western city were full of outsiders who should not have been there. What did YT do to stop and reverse this in the past? You allowed a dumb word like ‘racist’ to control you? A word, a sound.
    You allow third world savages inside and they behave like third World savages and slowly parts of your country turn Third World. Is that surprising?

  3. Intact? Nil.

    But civilization is like a pool of mercury in a low spot, scatter it and it will re-aggregate. There is a “strange attractor” at the heart of civilization.

    I’m not saying it will be pretty or fun, in fact the opposite, but civilization will re-emerge.

    I would also give you nil chance that the UN prediction of African population will be seen in 2100. A system under stress reacts in a direction to relieve the stress and the human ecosystem will react with a drastic population winnowing.

  4. A certain half-naked fakir once quipped that European civilisation would be a good idea. The history of the last century tends to make me almost agree. That’s the other pole of life in Europe, catastrophic internecine Total War, and I expect these chancers and crooks to be completely unaware of it. History is not even a Thing with them; no see, no exist.
    I used to be baffled by the historical ignorance of absolutely all the immigrants I’ve ever had a chat with about that sort of thing. All they “know” about are legends of various grievances conducted against their own particular tribe by the Empire. Of the history of Europe, not a sausage. Total blank.

    When things flip over to that state once more, this lot and all those like them will vanish, as though they had never been.

    Can’t give odds, as I can’t decide what European Civilisation actually consists of, even though we all know it when we see it.

    But these jokers seem well-fed and at a loose end.
    Fleas on a dog. If the dog dies, so do they, unless another critter is passing by and they can hop on to that.

    “Deep rooted prejudices entertained by the whites, ten thousand recollections by the blacks of the injuries they have sustained, new provocations, the real distinctions which nature has made, and many other circumstances will divide us into parties and produce convulsions which will probably never end but in the extermination of the one or the other race.” –Thomas Jefferson, Notes on Virginia

    Best get on exterminating if you don’t want exterminated.

    We can be certain that the African population will not reach those levels, since no African country can feed itself now, and world resources of fresh water, energy, and topsoil are diminishing at a steady rate…But even the current population of sub-70 IQ Africans could be sufficient if the West’s treasonous politicians continue to let them in and give them welfare…..Asia will not be participating in this mass suicide,China allowing zero foreign immigration, so there’s that…..

    Let’s see if Derb allows my comment, Sailer’s moderator would not, maybe I’ll have to post it in Audacious Epigone’s section, as his anonymity permits more freedom of speech. To the point now.

    This too is from the cultural enrichment / strength through diversity file drawer:

    A calf escapes the animal house of pain and horrors in Bloomfield, Connecticut (known as Saba phuckallah hallah halal lah la la la certified butcher shop), so the civilized, diverse crowd employed there chase it into a Home Depot parking lot and cut its throat on the spot, after missing it and failing to take it down with a shot from a bow:

    Was reading an article last night in the Telegraph about Capetown. 2000 murders so far this year! It makes Chicago’s murder rate paltry in comparison. In Capetown the killings are mostly between Afrikaans speaking ‘coloureds’ and Bantu gangs fighting for control.

    South Africa is decaying since black rule was achieved and has been overrun with black illegal immigrants from the north such that its population has grown from 37 million in 1990 to almost 60 million today. The white population has gone from about 15% to 8%. Obviously there is no level of taxation or wealth confiscation from the white, coloured and Indian peoples of South Africa that can sustain the burgeoning millions of Bantus but they will inevitably do what Mugabe did in Rhodesia and drive the whites out but we aren’t talking about 280,000 people here. South Africa’s whites number 4.5 million , coloureds 4.6 million and Indians 1.25 million

    India can probably accept its African diaspora but how can Europe, North America or Australia allow millions of white African refugees in and bar the door to the hundreds of millions of black Africans who also seeking entry into the West? Maybe Bolsonaro’s Brazil will take them.

  11. // but how can Europe, North America or Australia allow millions of white African refugees in and bar the door to the hundreds of millions of black Africans who also seeking entry into the West? // Um, it’s call The Right of Return? Use DNA tests, that’s what Israel do don’t they? China also regularly lets in Overseas Chinese as their preferred ‘immigrants’ while barring foreign refugees.

    Lives could be lost, women ruined, populations injured and infected in one day — so I think the focus shouldn’t be permanent emigration of Boers from Africa, but just to get them aboard, work visas, student visas…the more experience you have aboard in some countries the higher chance you have of staying, and if it comes to that, having arrived in Europe or America on a work visa or student visa, just disappear! Have lots of white anchor children for once instead of going quietly to the plane.

    I read somewhere that Russia was working on a deal to take them, at one point Australia was going to, but the disarmed Aussies caved to their angry feminazi rulers, but you’re idea is good. This Bolsinaro fellow seems like a good guy and Brazil sure could use them.

    “India can probably accept its African diaspora but how can Europe, North America or Australia allow millions of white African refugees in and bar the door to the hundreds of millions of black Africans who also seeking entry into the West? ”

    I don’t see a problem. White SAs are really in danger where they are and their government has adopted policies that will dispossess them and allow them to be killed. They qualify for asylum.

    Really, the ones who would freak out and start screaming are going to do that no matter what happens, so let ’em scream. It might just help show Americans, Europeans and Australians that the screamers don’t amount to enough of the population to even matter.

  15. The entire world’s economies are having difficulties. The Africans have survived due to ‘free stuff’ shipped in to them by do good organizations so they could eat and fornicate. Their natural resources were purchased by the industrialized nations to pay to feed a growing population of low IQ people. Left to their own skill level and intelligence, they will regress rapidly to their tribal instincts. They’ll start killing each other off as in Rwanda.

    Once the world’s economies experience real trouble that the central banks can’t paper over then the flow of that ‘free stuff’ and investment diminishes or stops entirely. Africa is going to have real problems feeding its people. Famine has a way of reducing population. These projections won’t happen.

    I wouldn’t know how to respond to this type of activity. The most appropriate and effective response would almost certainly result in collateral damage to the Pantheon, which would be a bad idea. So what is the second best way to handle a situation like this? The problem becomes even trickier because, on the evidence, the former French people apparently are as willing to tolerate this sort of atrocity as are the former American people. And yet, I can’t bring myself to just stop caring like most people, and sit down to a nice Game of Thrones binge-watching session.

    Not unless Western Civ recovers its pride and spine. Otherwise toast.

  21. To add to the chorus, Africans can’t even feed themselves.

    Nigerians are yet to resort to eating mud cakes but each year Africa’s biggest country by population blows a staggering $22 billion from oil revenues on food imports.

    Its leaders even brought white farmers who were expelled from Zimbabwe to grow food.

    Unlike Wakanda and their Arab peers in the north, black Africans can’t do basic irrigation.

    They also haven’t cracked artificial fertilizers. According to the World Bank Africa south of the Sahara has by far the lowest rate of improved seed and fertilizer use of any region.

    Can anyone direct me to a commentary by Derb where he even hinted at the real culprit behind what we see happening in the West??

    “It was the instinctive policy with the mass of the Jewish nation, a deliberate policy with most of its leaders, not only to use ridicule against Anti-Semitism but to label as ‘Anti-Semitic’ any discussion of the Jewish problem at all, or, for that matter, any information even on the Jewish problem. It was used to prevent, through ridicule, any statement of any fact with regard to the Jewish race save a few conventional compliments or a few conventional and harmless jests.

    If a man alluded to the presence of a Jewish financial power in any region— for instance, in India— he was an Anti-Semite. If he interested himself in the peculiar character of Jewish philosophical discussions, especially in matters concerning religion, he was an Anti-Semite. If the emigrations of the Jewish masses from country to country, the vast modern invasion of the United States, for instance (which has been organized and controlled like an army on the march), interested him as an historian, he could not speak of it under pain of being called an Anti-Semite. If he exposed a financial swindler who happened to be a Jew, he was an Anti-Semite. If he exposed a group of Parliamentarians taking money from the Jews, he was an Anti-Semite. If he did no more than call a Jew a Jew, he was an Anti-Semite. The laughter which the name used to provoke was most foolishly used to support nothing nobler or more definitive than this wretched policy of concealment. Anyone with judgment could have told the Jews, had the Jews cared to consult such an one, that their pusillanimous policy was bound to fail. It was but a postponement of the evil day.

    You cannot long confuse interest with hatred, the statement of plain and important truths with mania, the discussion of fundamental questions with silly enthusiasm, for the same reason that you cannot long confuse truth with falsehood. Sooner or later people are bound to remark that the defendant seems curiously anxious to avoid all investigation of his case. The moment that is generally observed, the defence is on the way to failure.”

    [Hilaire Belloc, The Jews, (1922) pp. 160-161]

    Yes, it is. It is from a February 11, 1986 entry in his diary.

    Cow slaughter in public? How could they, the barbaric scum!!

    Then we have those who commit human slaughter in the millions, in the full totally numbed public view, and they are the “civilised” ones? Sigh!

    If fact, we just had a total degenerate who proudly proclaimed he has the means to slaughter 10’s of millions of people.

    Anyway, your concern for the holy cow is duly noted by the cow-“gods.” Some good Cowrma is headed your way. 😀

    The Eastern European countries that joined the EU are doomed. They chose short-term prosperity over long-term survival. They made their choice.

  27. @anonymous

    Hitler’s sissy vegetarianism was indeed his downfall.
    That said, halal and kosher vivisections make animal slaughter unnecessarily gross.

  28. That graph is pure UN propaganda. African population numbers and birthrates are wildly inflated so as to garner more “aid and development” money for kleptocratic African politicians like the corrupt Kofi Annan and his son Kojo. They use the UN as an international racketeering and money laundering operation. They long ago figured out that the more mouths they claim to be feeding, the more money they can shake out of Western governments and NGOs. Graphs like this one are part of the shakedown.

    In reality, sub-Saharan Africa is sparsely populated, undeveloped, and bleak. The illusion of overpopulation is an artifact of the large cities and is created by the fact that just about everybody who is able to moves into the overcrowded city slums. Thus, you get teeming cesspits like Lagos, Nairobi, and Kinshasa acting like population magnets, which further empties out the countryside and accelerates its decline.

    What people like Derb do not realize is that this population “growth” does not result from an increase in absolute numbers; it’s just the population that already exists becoming more and more concentrated in the city centers where, for the first time, it becomes visible. Nobody goes out into the wilds of Africa to take a census, and every new African who comes into the cities will exaggerate the number of wives and children he has “back in his village” in the hopes of getting a bigger handout.

    It’s all a farce from top to bottom. Do not believe it. Do not be swayed by these phony numbers into thinking that Africa needs more money, more aid, more development, and more refugees offloaded. It’s a scam.

    This is how Africans behave in every other social situation, everywhere. They always say whatever they need to say in order to get the next handout. Why would you think these reported population numbers would be anything but another dindu nuffin, another “I got yo’ baby, Tyrone,” another”I ain’t even tryin’ to go to jail”?

    This all needs to stop. Africa and Africans need to be cut out of civilized society because they are incapable of honest dealings. Just stop your ears to everything they say. None of it is real.

  29. Ragno says:

    Until the “Western democracies” begin rounding up and imprisoning their treasonous white leftists, nothing can possibly change… except to get even worse.

    “B-but……that’s suspension of c-civil liberties!” you hyperventilate. You betcha; which is precisely what this modern mutation of Communists and anarchists, who only despise the West and those civil liberties (insofar as their native white populations are concerned) eminently deserve.

    Until and unless that happy day dawns, don’t bother alerting or alarming me; myself, my family and my friends will be leaving the rabbi in the living room turned off, and pursuing what happiness may remain by active non-participation in the West’s descent into the maelstrom.

  30. Patricus says:

    That graph appears ominous however we don’t know if Africans will reduce the numbers of children like most other peoples. In a generation or two an average African woman might have 1.5 children.
