Instead of electing Le Pen, the suicidal French elected Macron who hates France. French nationalism, declares Macron, "is the betrayal of patriotism." Macron continues: "Patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism... By putting "ourselves first...we erase our nation's moral values." With his perversion of the meaning of patriotism, Macron subjects French men and women to the subjugation of both immigrants and the European Union. Although Merkel might be too careful to express it so clearly, her views are the same as Macron's. Thus it is that the leaders of Europe's most important countries have abandoned their people. (For Macron's view of France as a borderless and universalist country read "Fatherland & Nation" by Scott Trask in the February 2019 issue of Chronicles.)
Western civilization is so far gone that Stephen Bannon, exiled from Washington and Breitbart News, has joined with others to form a new academy in Italy to train a school of "gladiators" capable of defending Western civilization from its internal enemies.
Throughout the West there are so many poisonous voices raised against the West that it will take hundreds of thousands of gladiators to stand against them.
It might be too late. Many decades ago Jean Raspail in his novel, The Camp of the Saints, described a French government and media that welcomed the Third World immigrants who overran France and extinguished the French nation. Today Macron speaks exactly like the political characters in the novel. The situation is so far gone in France that it is not an exaggeration to say that the French people should be put on the list of endangered species.
