Adieu, France

The French Government plans to demolish 2800 Churches. Meanwhile 1000 Mosques were built in the last two decades.

Macron and his ilk promote an ideology of “universal human values,” of a “common culture” for the whole world. In reality, however, he and other proponents of “diversity” are creating its exact opposite: a soul-numbing singularity, a dreary sameness of thought and inaction. For all the outward differences, Macrons on both sides of the ocean share with the mullahs and sheikhs and imams a desire for a monistic One World. They both long for the Great “Gleichschaltung” that will end in a Single Global Authority, postnational and seamlessly standardized, an “umma” under whatever name. The Christian vision of the Triune God Who allows choice, diversity, individuality, and free will is the enemy of this vision.

Emmanuel Macron’s victory in the French presidential election provides conclusive proof that no major European nation can save itself from demographic and cultural suicide through the electoral process. That outcome is not merely a victory for status quo politics, which millions of lower-middle-class French people prefer, but a triumph of the globalist establishment.

Macron is a paradigmatic pastiche, almost a caricature, of Europe’s postmodern transnational elite. He is a former international banker and fanatical Euro-integralist who wants an ever-tighter union ruled from Brussels. He is an Islamophillic open-borders globalist, lovingly known among France’s urban progressives as the “French Obama.” Last January he told the Süddeutsche Zeitung that critics of Angela Merkel’s open-door migration policy were guilty of “disgraceful oversimplification.” In his opinion, by allowing over a million unassimilable and unvetted aliens into the country, “Merkel and German society as a whole exemplified our common European values. They saved our collective dignity by accepting, accommodating and educating distressed refugees.” Last February he lampooned Donald Trump’s promise to protect America’s southern border by promising never to build a wall of any kind.

More seriously, Macron’s “solution” to jihadist terrorism is more Euro-federalism: “We must quickly create a sovereign Europe that is capable of protecting us against external dangers in order to better ensure internal security,” he declared last March. “We also need to overcome national unwillingness and create a common European intelligence system that will allow the effective hunting of criminals and terrorists.” This is nonsense. Many terrorist attacks in France, Germany, Belgium, etc., were carried out by Muslims who had been arrested or registered and presumably supervised by their host-countries’ security services. The problem is not the absence of information sharing; the problem is that the number of Muslims exceeds the capacity of the security mechanism to manage the threat.

Most seriously, Macron is wilfully blind to the civilizational threat we all face. He has said he believes that French security policy has unfairly targeted Muslims and condemned those who would “make secularism a weapon of combat . . . against Islam.” Last fall he lambasted President Hollande’s meek statement that “France has a problem with Islam.” “No religion is a problem in France today,” Macron replied. “[I]f the state is neutral, which is at the heart of secularism, we have a duty to let everyone practice his religion with dignity.” Parroting Obama, he has said that the Islamic State is not at all “Islamic”: “What poses a problem is not Islam, but certain behaviors that are said to be religious and then imposed on persons who practice that religion.”

Macron is an evil idiot, so he will naturally occupy the Élysée Palace after a grotesque predecessor. Marine Le Pen’s predictable defeat shows that the political process in the Western world is a charade with preordained outcomes. The refusal of the Parisian elite class to protect France from Islam reflects a global problem that is a synthesis of all others, and goes beyond “Culture Wars.” It is the looming end of culture itself.

Macron and his ilk promote an ideology of “universal human values,” of a “common culture” for the whole world. In reality, however, he and other proponents of “diversity” are creating its exact opposite: a soul-numbing singularity, a dreary sameness of thought and inaction. For all the outward differences, Macrons on both sides of the ocean share with the mullahs and sheikhs and imams a desire for a monistic One World. They both long for the Great Gleichschaltung that will end in a Single Global Authority, postnational and seamlessly standardized, an umma under whatever name. The Christian vision of the Triune God Who allows choice, diversity, individuality, and free will is the enemy of this vision.

Macron belongs to the elite class: rootless, arrogant, cynically manipulative, and irreversibly jihad-friendly. He will “fight” the war on terrorism without naming the enemy, without revealing his beliefs, without unmasking his intentions, without offending his accomplices, without expelling his fifth columnists, and without ever daring to win. He embodies France’s loss of the will to define and defend one’s native culture, and the pan-European loss of the desire to procreate.

Communities bonded by memory, language, faith, and myth might still be revived, but a catastrophic, life-altering event is needed. And in adversity the eyes of men and women might be lifted, once again, to Heaven. Even before this happens—and it will happen—normal people should not succumb to passivity. The game is not up. The Dar al Islam is not the inevitable end of the road for France, Macron or no Macron. We are endowed with feelings and reason, with the awareness of who we are. The struggle of true Frenchmen and women to defend themselves against population replacement and cultural suicide is just, even if the outcome is uncertain. In the face of this uncertainty they will hold on to life, and beauty, and truth. And the political process be damned.

  1. Fr. Johannes Jacobse :

    My question for the cultured despisers of Christian civilization: Did it ever occur to you that your children and grandchildren (if you have any) would be subject to the rule of the Imans?

  2. Ronda Wintheiser :

    “Europe mockingly shouts [to Christ]: ‘Get away from us. We do not recognize you. We follow European civilization and culture, and the Greek philosophers. We want to be free. We have universities. Science is the star that guides us. Our slogan is: freedom, brotherhood, equality. And our mind is the god of all gods. You are an Asiatic. And we reject You. You are only an old myth our grandmothers and grandfathers believed in.’

    “With tears in His eyes, Christ says: ‘Behold now I am leaving, but you will see. You have left God’s road and you are following Satan’s. Blessings and happiness have been taken away from you. Your life is in My hands, because I was crucified for you. And yet in spite of all this I will not punish you, but your own sins and your apostasy from Me your Savior, shall punish you. I revealed the love of My Father to everyone, and with love I wanted to save all of you.’

    “Europe then says: ‘Love? Our agenda only includes a hardy and manly hatred for everyone who disagrees with us. Your love is only a fable. And in place of this fable we have raised up the flag: of ethnicity, of internationalism, of the state, of progress, of evolution, of trans-oceanism, and of cultism. Our salvation is found in these, so get away from us.'”

    — St Justin Popovich, “Orthodox Faith and Life in Christ”

  3. Sadly the Kalergi plan is in full swing and most are absolutely ignorant to what it is. The kalergi award has been renamed the “Constantine” Award, of which Angela Merkle and others have been the recent recipients. Awards go to those who are integrating the best multicultural programs and immigrant integration in their countries. Lord help us!

    From the video on selling the consecrated RC Church to the Muslim community: “Christians and Muslims have the same God…”

    Lie of lies.

    They really don’t want sameness. It is the Neitzchean vision of the herd ruled by the Ubermenchen. “creative” chaos and the destruction of all rules and morals. The true master race.

    It is demonic fury but oh so reasonable.

  5. Yes, but this is old news, no? The Siege of Vienna, Charles Martel, the Crusades . . .

    Islam has always been the same. Unfortunately, Christendom has been quite fickle and faithless. That’s the real problem.

    Let us assume for a minute that we are completely faithful Orthodox Christians thinking about the matter at hand. We know that Christ is the God-man. We know that Muhammad appeared some 600 years after the Resurrection with a message from a being he alleged to be the angel Gabriel. We know that this message explicitly and specifically contradicts the Gospel in its particulars: the book “revealed” to Muhammad denies the Incarnation, Crucifixion and Resurrection of the God-Man, Jesus Christ. It posits alternative explanations, making theosis impossible for the followers of Muhammad.

    Perhaps it was an angel, but not Gabriel. More likely Lucifer.

    And so the history is one of persecution of God’s Church practically from the moment of its inception. Dhimmitude, or worse.

    Subjection apparently is no longer good enough for ISIS. They behead even “people of the book”.

    They are Amalek.

    And the podvig, the great deed before Christians, is to annihilate this enemy. Containment, conversion and warfare are the means to accomplish this. The Muslim carries a disease and its name is “Islam”.

    Muslims have a widespread presence in the West and this is going to become increasingly problematic as matters heat up – and heat up they will.

    Islam is a closed system wherein jihad is an obligation, almost a sixth pillar of the faith. Sometimes it is dormant, sometimes not. But the impetus of jihad is to attack in all directions until everyone is under Islam, under shariah. So there is a Dar ul-Islam (the House of Submission; i.e., the Islamic world) and the Dar ul-Harb (the House of Warfare/Conflict; i.e., areas wherein Islam has not yet prevailed). A third possibility, the House of Treaty, was also devised in Classical Islam. But treaty is always temporary.

    Islam is by its very nature a violent Borg. It is programmed that way. It acts upon its adherents in such a manner that their devotion is channeled, sooner or later, to the end of jihad.

    And the answer to that is podvig. The Feat. Absolute warfare by any and every means, spiritual, material, psychological, physical, civil, militant, etc. – from spiritual warfare in prayer and fasting all the way up to and including the type of warfare that God commanded to the Israelites against other pernicious offenders – Amalek: Herem. If need be.

    I look at the parallels between the Book of Ezekiel and the Apocalypse of St. John and wonder if this is not all part of God’s plan.

  6. cynthia curran :

    I came across an article by the guardian on Elon Musk. It stated that Musk is working his workers to death like they work in a Victorian factory with lots of injuries and workers fainting. Also, when the workers are not productive enough their pay is dock from 22 an hour to 10 an hour. Now, the left for years like Musk since he pushed electric cars and was opposed to carbon in the air. Now, the left wanted to take away from the abuse of workers of the 19th century, but excepted it when the communists governments were doing it or folks like Musk. Anyways, the modern left has lots of utopias not just being anti-christian and pro-Islam.
