The Dark Side of Europe’s Diversity

Patrick Buchanan, World Net Daily, March 22, 2012

As an act of pure evil it was difficult to match.

After dragging the 8-year-old by her hair across a schoolyard, the killer put a 9 mm pistol to the girl’s head and pulled the trigger.

The gun jammed. So he took out a Colt .45 and finished her.

She was one of four victims. The others—a 30-year-old rabbi and his two boys.

As the gunman had targeted a Jewish school and the bullets were identical to those used in the murders of two North African soldiers and one black soldier, suspicion fell on some neo-Nazi racist.

And in France’s tight presidential campaign, left and center moved swiftly to exploit the atrocities by charging the French right with creating an atmosphere in which such racist horrors can occur.

“Killings Could Stall Election’s Nationalist Turn,” ran the New York Times headline. The debate over whether the murders were “inspired by anti-immigrant political talk is likely to continue,” wrote the Times’ Steve Erlanger, “both as a weapon in the presidential campaign and as a more general soul-searching about the nature of France.”


These murders, said centrist candidate Francois Bayrou, “because of their origin, of the religion of their family,” are linked “to a growing climate of intolerance.”


The massacre at the Jewish school and the murders of Muslim and black soldiers, said the head of France’s Council of Muslim Democrats, “are a strong signal sent to politicians and, more particularly, to those who, for several months, have played with fire.”

And who had “played with fire”?

Sarkozy and Marine Le Pen, candidate of the rightist National Front.


With his rightward move to siphon votes from Le Pen, Sarkozy had surged into a tie with Socialist Francois Hollande.

So it was that the left leapt with alacrity upon the massacre to charge that Sarkozy’s new populism had created the climate in which such horrors against Jews and Muslims can occur.

So it was that the Times concluded that the nationalist turn in French politics might be halted, as it had in Norway after berserker Anders Breivik slaughtered scores of children last year.

What was happening should be readily recognizable to Americans.

When John F. Kennedy was assassinated by a Marxist in Dallas, the Goldwater right was charged with creating an atmosphere of hate that had made it likelier to happen there. When Rep. Gabrielle Giffords was shot by a crazed gunman who wounded a dozen others and slaughtered six, moral responsibility was laid at the feet of Sarah Palin.

Unfortunately for the French left, however, by Wednesday, the mass murderer had been identified as a homegrown Salafist jihadi and self-styled member of al-Qaida who had spent time in Afghanistan and Pakistan and been under surveillance for years by French intelligence.

Mohamed Merah was seeking revenge against Jews for the deaths of Palestinian children and against French soldiers for fighting in Afghanistan.

Le Pen seized on the news to blast the left, which had sought to blame the atrocities on her, and charged the French government with underestimating the Islamist threat and being lax on national security.

“It is time to wage war on these fundamentalist political religious groups who are killing our children,” she said.


With the killer precisely the type of individual the French right has said bears watching, Bayrou was hastily backtracking:

Politicians must “tackle the risk of importing into French society conflicts that are foreign to us or should be foreign to us.”

As Europe’s native citizens age and die and immigration goes on and on—with 5 million Muslims already in France—issues of national identity will bedevil Europe, even as they will bedevil us, forever.

In Toulouse we see clearly now not only the dark side of diversity but perhaps the future of the West.

    We need to stop complaining and find a way to change this!  Immigration, low birth rates, and miscegenation are destroying out culture.  The governments meant to protect us are only hurting us.

    The dark side of Third World immigration; you mean there’s a bright side?

    This is but the first sprinkles of an approaching hurricane.

    Out of many,one (E Pluribus Unum) That is what is meant for the different WHITE nationalities in Europe (Caucasians ONLY) coming to the USA and form ONE race of people.


    Not true. It meant that the Union was created out of many states. There weren’t many White nationalities in the country at the time.

    Not very often. Gun control does actually work. Criminals still exist, but they rarely have guns unless they are part of organised crime networks.

    Jewish schools are no more dedicated to education than Muslim schools are. They exist primarily to turn western Jewish children into little soldiers for Israel.

    This is a war between Israel and Islam, and neither side should be using France as a base on which to fight it.

    Jews do have a place in France, but that place isn’t for Zionist warmongering.

      jews don’t belong in any White country, period.

    E pluribus unum is the motto suggested by the committee Congress appointed on July 4, 1776 to design “a seal for the United States of America.”

    The motto E pluribus unum “alludes to this union” between the states and federal government, as symbolized by the shield on the eagle’s breast. The thirteen stripes “represent the several states all joined in one solid compact entire, supporting a Chief, which unites the whole & represents Congress.” – Charles Thomson

  • All sides are “DARK” when it comes to mass immigration of third-world militants who hate you!! How much more will be tolerated before we say enough is enough!

      Yeah well it doesn’t take s sociologist to figure this out. We “enslaved” them. Now they come to our countries. Their entire lives, they are  fed the Al Sharpton/Others rhetoric. This racial animus that manifests in their small minds to a VERY abstract/violent mindset. They don’t know WHY their mad, they just know they are mad. And they want “revenge”. Think of ALL the Al Sharptons of the world, and their hateful “rhetoric”, as the soundtrack to white resentment. What comes next? Well Probably…They will start “revising” our history books to be “sensitive” about the ALL the terrible things we have done. They will change the books so it seems like Black American had an ESSENTIAL role in the building of America. W/O blacks, the revolutionary war would have been lost. W/O black engineers, we would have never got to the moon.

    I agree completely. Being labeled “anti-semetic” takes away ALL credibility. Besides I think it is more of a “collective consciousness” thing more than “the jewish problem”. Whites in America/Europe/Canada, even Australia have been conditioned. Conditioned where ALL logical/reasonable thought is HIJACKED from the fear of a word. The “R” word. The word used against whites as a HAMMER to shut them up when we “get out of line” AKA-speak the truth with racial self-interest in mind. Conditioned to second guess any “racist” though we might have. Rather then look around you–watch the news–we make excuses for “them”. Which leads to guilt. Not that it would EVER happen but Australia/U.S.A should do like a birth incentive for Whites. Hell If I get rich someday off my music, I will do just that! Yaya

    Ill be famous soon enough. When that time comes, I am the one. I will be the voice for white Americans/Europeans/Canadians/Australians. Russian doesn’t really need help yet. Hopefully they never experience the joys/enrichment of diversity/multiculturalism. Don’t worry friend. Our time in the spotlight will come. Very Soon. Very Soon.        “City to City, State to State, Horrific Black Violence,  Because of White Hate”.

    Poor ol’ Pat, he seems to believe it.

    Any man who would murder an eight year-old girl is not a man.  He is a fiend.  I don’t care if the girl is jewish, christian, muslim,buddist, white, black yellow, or red.  I don’t care if the girl were the daughter of his worst and most heinous enemy.  That man is lower than any animal.  He is s**t.  I hope that he died slowly.
