Guillaume Faye Speaks in Nice

“French Race Riots Only the Start”
by Fabrice Bianco
On January 31, in a hotel in the center of [the French Riviera city of] Nice, Guillaume Faye spoke before the Club de la Cité, a local cultural-political association. He had a terrifying story to tell: that of our near future. A future in which France and all Europe risk being africanized, as whites become a minority in their ancestral lands.
Guillaume Faye is not one to leave you indifferent. He is, as they say, a character. A great character and a great orator. But if the eloquence of this apocalyptic prophet inspires even the most lethargic among us (and given that the natives of Nice are hardly known for their lethargy, you can imagine the ambiance), the substance of his talk was no less striking.
Reiterating analyses developed in several of his previous books, Faye reminded us that men and nations are like animals and insects: once they cease to dominate their living space, once they stop reproducing, and/or allow alien groups to settle and prosper in their lands, they end up disappearing. Anthropology, demography, and history all say as much.
Do our politicians have any idea of what is happening? Faye divides them into three categories: the quasi-Trotskyists, the gullible, and the cynical. The first group, which is to be found on both the left and right, bears an ethno-masochistic hatred for France and all that her history and tradition signify. They seek nothing less than her destruction. Hence the apparent contradiction between their immoderate taste for all forms of contemporary decadence (hedonism, drugs, homosexuality, etc.) and the masochistic pleasure they take in seeing Islam (which opposes this decadence) pursue its conquest of Europe.
The second group, the gullible, thinks “that the world is beautiful, that everyone is nice!” The third and largest group is made up of cynics. They’re quite conscious of what is happening, but their main preoccupation is their career and their material well-being, which they hope to secure for the next dozen or so years.
According to Faye, the race riots in “our” suburbs [during November 2005] were only the beginning of what promises to be an even greater violence. Volcanic eruptions and revolution always begin in the same way: first, an explosion, then a lull, followed by a final conflagration. The Russian Revolution of 1917 was preceded by the revolution of 1905. In 2015, our society will no longer resemble what it is today.
Contrary to what the mainstream media would have us believe, November’s violence was racial in character. Eight people were killed, Africans and Arabs engaged in massive arsonist assaults. Their motivation? Hatred! Hatred of the Whiteman. For Faye, this hatred explains why Christian churches were sacrileged and public buildings burned. If it weren’t hatred, he asks, then how do you explain why they burned cars, when it would have simpler and more profitable to steal them.
Was there a hidden hand behind the riots? Faye doesn’t think so, though it wouldn’t surprise him if the American government played a discrete role [as was the case with the May Revolution of 1968, which brought down De Gaulle’s anti-American government]. Those [European nationalists] who think this former New Right theoretician has switched allegiance to the Yankee superpower [because he believes the Third World poses a greater threat to Europe than the U.S.’s Zionist-New Class state] ought to start rethinking their position. In his view, the U.S. has a vested interest in the “africanization” of Europe — in a Eurabia beset by racial-ethnic civil war — for such a Europe poses no challenge to its planetary hegemony and even assists in situations like Kosovo [where it helped the U.S. arm Muslim terrorists for the sake of crushing independent Serbia]. As to the “Islamists,” Faye doesn’t think they provoked the riots, though they were quick to profit from them, considerably augmenting their influence over the French state [somewhat in the way negro civil rights activitists gained power and prestige during the race riots of the ’60s].
As to the riots themselves. They were a test. A test of the rioters’ capacity to resist the French state. A test that proved the government’s inability to act. The latter’s sole response: 140 billion euros [in new programs and grants to buy off the rioters].
Does this mean the game is up? Unlike Jean Raspail [the author of The Camp of the Saints who thinks Europe won’t survive], Faye believes there is still time for Europeans to reverse the situation. And unlike those who fixate on the global economic forces assaulting Europe, Faye believes the barbarians are already within the city’s gates. He evoked the memory of the Reconquista [the 800 year long struggle to free white Christian Spain from Arab Muslim rule] and the need to face reality as it exists on the ground. In this spirit, he rendered homage to those recent identitarian initiatives to set up “pork soup” kitchens to aid France’s native homeless [initiatives which have affirmed a primordial European identity (if only at the level of food) and in a way that emphasizes both the anti-European sensibilities of the existing authorities and all that differentiate Europeans from the alien dietary rituals of the invaders].
Several speakers followed Faye, but this did not quite bring things to a close. Soirées with Guillaume rarely end early.
