A Spectre is Haunting Europe
I posted last Monday about the conviction of the French writer Renaud Camus, who was sentenced to two months in prison (suspended) for writing about immigration as the Great Replacement of European peoples.
The following article from the Swedish dissident site Samhällsnytt discusses Mr. Camus’ conviction. Many thanks to LN for the translation:
French intellectual sentenced to prison — for talking about immigration as a population replacement
January 22, 2020
The French writer and political thinker Renaud Camus has been sentenced to two months in prison. This is because he described mass immigration to Europe in terms such as invasion, colonization and population replacement.
Renaud Camus is best known for his book Le Grand Remplacement from 2011 in which he develops his thoughts on an ongoing exchange of people directed by a political elite.
In a court in the French city of Auch, the author was sentenced to prison and €1,800 (about SEK 19,000 [$2,000]) in fines. He says this himself in a post on Twitter…
Renaud Camus also has to pay €1,800 to two “anti-racist” organizations that are the target in the case — SOS Racism and LICRA (International League against Racism and Anti-Semitism).
The crime he is accused of is “a general call for hatred or violence because of origin, ethnicity, nationality, race or religion”.
The speech for which the author has now been sentenced was given in 2017 and can be read in its entirety — translated from French to English.
The video version of Mr. Camus’ speech is here.
Below is the English text:
A spectre haunts Europe and the world. It is Replacism
Renaud Camus, President of the CNRE [National Council of European Resistance]
January 15, 2018
Immigration has become invasion, invasion a migratory submersion. France and Europe are a hundred times more colonised, and more seriously so, than they ever colonised themselves. The only irreversible colonisation is a demographic one, the one which takes place via population transfer.
Some people now say there is no colonisation, that the word is not proper, because there is no military conquest. Those people are wrong. The army of conquest are the delinquents large and small, all of those people who make life impossible for Europeans by harming them in every possible way, from the so-called incivilities to terrorism, which is in fact nothing but an extension of the rest. All the perpetrators of terrorist attacks launched their career in the violation of common law. Moreover, there are no terrorists. There is an Occupier who, from time to time, executes a few hostages, as occupiers have always done. I call occupiers all those who declare themselves to be such, or behave as such.
The change in people, ethnic substitution, the Great Replacement, is by far the most important event in the history of our country since it has existed, because, with another people, the history, if it continues, will no longer be the history of France. France has always marvellously assimilated individuals who wanted to be assimilated. It cannot — it simply cannot — assimilate peoples, much less peoples who are hostile, demanding, even hateful and conquering. It requires a peerless form of vanity and complete ignorance of what a people is to think that with a changed population, another people, France would still be France. In the present situation, all words are liars but the most mendacious of all is “French”. There are no “French” jihadists, for example. If they are jihadists then they are not French.
To believe that there are only French people in France is a complete illusion. There are invaders and invaded, colonisers and colonised, occupiers and the occupied.
One doesn’t put an end to colonisation without the departure of the colonist: Algeria, in its time, showed us French that the hard way — a good opportunity for us now to underline the difference in civilisations.
One doesn’t put an end to an occupation without the departure of the occupying power, the occupying forces. There is no way out other than remigration. The same people who say this is impracticable want to bring forty million migrants to Europe, when it is not two hundred million. They say mankind has entered an era of general migration. Let them migrate and remigrate then. What is possible in one direction should also be possible in the other, with greater gentleness, human respect, and more resources.
The time for politics, elections, political parties, that time is over. The next presidential election in France is too far away. The change of people will by then have gone too far, the replacers will then be the kingmakers, unless they decide to be themselves the kings — the masters. In any case, there is no way to win a game in which your adversary holds all the cards and has set up all the rules. The powers-that-be, their banks, their judges and their media all want ethnic substitution. They are not in the least protecting us from it. Quite the contrary, they are organising it and promoting it. They have drugged people into accepting it, by the teaching of oblivion, by general deculturation, by censorship, by repression and permanent injections of self-hatred. They are not importing workers, because there is no work and there will be less and less in the future. They’re importing future consumers whom they are no longer even making the effort to pretend are refugees since the vast majority of these migrants come from countries where there is not even a hint of war: there are often sick people, adventurous or conquest-minded youths, teenagers who’ve rowed with their parents or had run-ins with the police, tradesmen whose trade has failed.
I know you object as these future consumers have no money. You are mistaken, if you permit me to say so. Tomorrow they will have yours. In truth, the supposed social transfers are little else than ethnic transfers. Europe is the first continent ever to pay for its own colonisation.
A spectre haunts Europe and the world. It is Replacism, the tendency to replace everything with and by its double — standardised, normalised, interchangeable, low-cost: the original by the copy, the authentic by its imitation, the true by the false, mothers by surrogate mothers, culture by leisure and entertainment, knowledge by diplomas, the country and town by the universal suburb, the indigene by the allogene, Europe by Africa, men by women, men and women by robots, peoples by other peoples, humanity by a dazed posthumanity, undifferentiated, standardised, as interchangeable as you like.
Of all forms of genetic manipulation, the Great Replacement, a kind of surrogate pregnancy applied to the entire planet, is by far the worst. Genocide by substitution, in the words of Aimé Césaire, the black communist Caribbean poet, is the Crime Against Humanity of the 21st century. It is a very strange thing, for that matter, that environmentalists seem to exclude man of their very commendable concern for biodiversity.
Replacism now considers itself strong enough to take management of the human stock in hand directly, without intermediaries. In France, Emmanuel Macron, who, along with Justin Trudeau, is its most accomplished representative in the world, has already neutralised the political microcosm and sent the main actors in French political life over the last thirty years back to their homes, peopling the National Assembly with foot soldiers in his pay, building an ad hoc government, shattering all the major parties. He doesn’t govern. He manages — as he would a bank or a PLC. He exits politics via the economy, finance or corporate management. We want to exit it via history. The independence or subjection of a great nation, the survival or the disappearance of a great civilisation, that is not a question of politics, but of history. Charles de Gaulle in London, that was not politics. Jean Moulin in Lyon was not politics. Nor was Joan of Arc in Chinon, nor Churchill in the War Rooms, nor Gandhi in Calcutta, nor anyone who rose up for the independence of their country and the dignity of their people.
What we need today is not a new party, not even a union of the Right: the rejection of totalitarian Replacism is no less a matter of the Left than the Right. What we need today is a coming together of all those who say a resounding No to Islamisation and the African conquest. What we need is a Council of National Resistance, of European resistance, because all European nations are invited to fight at our side for the well-being of our shared civilisation, Celt, Slav, Norman, Saxon, Germanic, Greco-Latin, Judeo-Christian and free-thinking.
My friend Karim Ouchikh, president of the SIEL, and myself, Renaud Camus, have decided to found exactly that, a National and European Council of Resistance. We will publicly offer to unite with all public figures who seem to be motivated by the same desire to save our country and all European countries and we will expand our committee this way, through co-option. But all French people and all Europeans who think like us are invited to link up with us and offer their support. The aim is to put together a force such that, ideally, it would be unnecessary to make use of it.
That said, if through misfortune it turned out that the only alternative left to us was submission or war, then let it be war, a hundred times over. There would be nothing civil about it, despite the high number of collaborators to the invasion. It will form part of the great tradition of peoples struggling for the right to self-determination, for the liberation of their territory and for decolonisation. We must finally put an end to the colonial age, as our colonisers say, while they are colonising us. The crazy pendulum swing of colonisation and counter-colonisation needs to be brought to an end once and for all, preferably across the Mediterranean.
Long live free France. Vive la France libre. Long live European civilisation.
