‘France’ is no longer France…
The thinking of many in the hard so-called ”alt-right”, as well as throughout the Jew-hating spectrum is so badly muddled it’s farcical. There are those who keep insisting that ”the Jews want to destroy Europe as an act of revenge by flooding it with 3rd world Muslims. Think again. It’s not in the Jews (nor anyone else’s) best interest. An Islamic Europe is not only more hostile to classical liberalism which affords minorities protection, it would also be entirely hostile to Israel, the world’s only Jewish state.
What’s in question here is a radical Leftist mindset that refuses to take human experience and the historical record seriously. They are of a utopian mindset, believing that whatever they put into motion will inevitably bear the fruit that they desire, regardless of past experience dictating a completely different end result.
France’s ‘Great Replacement’ – in numbers
Why France? For two reasons, essentially. It is the country with the oldest, most important and stratified immigration experience. And because it is the country that grows most demographically in Europe.
In France, questioning peacefully about the effects of immigration remains a dangerous undertaking. Between our colonial past, the traumas of the Second World War, the fear of playing the extreme right, everything is combined to make it a taboo. In demographic terms, however, the truth is simple to say that: immigration plays an important role”. Thus went the inquiry of the French weekly L’Express. The writer Renaud Camus called it the “Great Replacement”. His fears, too often dismissed as paranoia, are well based on numbers.
Why France? For two reasons, essentially. It is the country with the oldest, most important and stratified immigration experience. And because it is the country that grows most demographically in Europe, together with the United Kingdom. “All indicators converge” saysL’Express. “From 1960 to 2011, immigration increased the population residing in metropolitan France by about 9.7 million people (15.4 percent of the total). The number of births increased by 27 percent. And without it, the total fertility rate would not have been two children per woman, but 1.86”.
The figures were calculated by Michèle Tribalat, an apolitical demographer whose serious work has never been challenged. “According to my calculations, half of our population growth for fifty years is due to the decline in mortality, but the other half, in fact, is represented by immigration”, confirms Hervé Le Bras, one of the colleagues with whom Tribalat often fights on the French intellectual and cultural scene.
And to highlight the dramatic increase in the birth of children with at least one foreign parent comes a number on the contribution of immigration on the total number of births: “From 15 percent of the total (in 2000) to 24 percent (in 2016). In 2014, 40 percent of newborns had at least one immigrant grandfather”.
