A Positive Post About Camp of the Saints Appears at Lew Rockwell

I was surprised to see this post up at LewRockwell.com.

As the world watches the wrenching events in France unfold after the horrific “Charlie Hebdo” massacre, one cannot not help but be reminded of the stentorian warning to the West emblazoned in the apocalyptic novel by Jean Raspail, The Camp of the Saints (.pdf). In one of the most divisive and controversial works of the 20th Century, Raspail chillingly predicted and prophesized forty two years ago precisely what is occurring and its suicidal consequences for the diseased remnants of that civilization. It is unquestionably the most powerful novel I have ever read. Insidious egalitarianism, destructive welfarism, aggressive multiculturalism, cultural Marxism, Third World invasions by the wretched of the earth, militaristic imperialism posing as humanitarian liberation, and mindless parousiatic atheism in the name of a hallowed pluralism, have blended into a banal omnipresent doxology, that of statolatry. Other prophetic voices have followed Raspail: Oriana FallaciPascal BrucknerBruce Bawer, and most notably Patrick J. Buchanan (herehere here). The culture vultures have indeed come home to roost and are flailing away at the twisted torso of the corpse that was once the West.

Dang!

    “The question of open borders, or free immigration, has become an accelerating problem for classical liberals. This is first, because the welfare state increasingly subsidizes immigrants to enter and receive permanent assistance, and second, because cultural boundaries have become increasingly swamped. I began to rethink my views on immigration when, as the Soviet Union collapsed, it became clear that ethnic Russians had been encouraged to flood into Estonia and Latvia in order to destroy the cultures and languages of these peoples. Previously, it had been easy to dismiss as unrealistic Jean Raspail’s anti-immigration novel The Camp of the Saints, in which virtually the entire population of India decides to move, in small boats, into France, and the French, infected by liberal ideology, cannot summon the will to prevent economic and cultural national destruction. As cultural and welfare-state problems have intensified, it became impossible to dismiss Raspail’s concerns any longer.”

    Patrick,
    I know what you mean. The site has some fine pro-conservative articles, but other articles toe the globalist line when it comes to “free trade” and open borders.

    Maybe this is a sign they’re changing their minds.

    I’m a simple man, but GOD was pretty clear at the TOWER OF BABEL on the division of cultural groups?……………..He ain’t interested in MULTICULTURALISM?…………SCATTER seems to be the prerogative?

    Who is going to challenge 3.4 Billion Chinese that say NO!……They are not Chinese!!!!

    Wake up and smell the coffee…….CHINA is not going to throw away 4000 years of heritage to appease Western Stupidity?……………In the middle of an INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION?

    The Western Zionist Bankers must be stupid to even believe that a nation of pure bred Chinese will roll over and pee on themselves after the 100 years of humiliation?
