Notre Dame blaze destroys French national unity

While French and Catholics mourn the tragedy that struck the cathedral of Paris on Monday, Internet users, especially Muslims, preferred instead to celebrate the fire with insults and shameful ridicule.

    The hate messages were largely ignored by the media.

    In the wake of the tragic fire at Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris, the French and Christians around the world are in shock. Everyone mourns the destruction of a religious monument, a historical symbol, an inestimable heritage treasure.

    But on social networks, hundreds of Internet users, especially Muslims, preferred instead to mock or congratulate the fire with hate messages, almost all passed over by the media.

    For its part, the blog FdeSouche captured a series of hate messages, often deleted by their authors.

    Faced with the controversy, The Minister of Higher Education, Research and Innovation Frédérique Vidal recalled on Twitter that “Notre-Dame is part of our history and our common destiny”. Vidal also denounced “vain controversies and outrageous remarks”.

    But one remark that was not deleted was the the one by American Neocon pope Bill Kristol. Kristol dropped a figurative bomb in the wake of the Notre Dame Cathedral blaze when alluding to the building being a reminder of anti-Semitism.

    He claimed that the Notre Dame’s religious principles were symbols of “the vanquished synagoga”.

    Even French Catholic neoconservative Pascal-Emmanuel Gobry was aghast: “I still can’t stop thinking about this. I’ve been a BillKristol fan for many years. Reducing Catholicism (even Medieval Catholicism) to anti-Semitism and scare-quoting ‘philosophy’ in reference to it is ridiculous and ignorant at all times, but on a night like this?”

    A far-left rag The Jewish Worker, also suggested on Monday that it was “white supremacy” to care about the destruction of the “anti-Semitic” Notre Dame Cathedral, agreeing with Kristol.

    The National Union of French Students (UNEF) openly joked about the drama that has hit the Parisian cathedral.

    The national unity of France, on Tuesday, April 16, seems to have escaped some executives of UNEF. Among them, some have quipped about the fire that occurred at Notre-Dame de Paris, denigrating “French identity” of “little whites”.

    Vice-President of the student union at the University of Lille, Askar tweeted: “I do not care about Notre-Dame de Paris because I do not care about the history of France.” Askar presented herself as a “member of the national office of UNEF”, a syndicate on the left. “People will cry for bits of wood. I swear to Allah you like French identity too much while we don’t give a rat’s ass objectively it’s the madness of little white people.”

    The hate messages were identified by Romain Espino, spokesperson for Generation Identity. He presented screen shots in support.

    French police figures show 875 of the country’s 42 258 churches were vandalized in 2018.

    Infowars reported Paul Joseph Watson revealed just hours before the Notre Dame Cathedral blaze that the number of anti-religious attacks in France continues to rise, “while attacks against Muslims are at their lowest for 9 years”.

    On the official programme of her trip to Reunion, the head of President Macron’s party LREM European election list had meanwhile refused to attend a mass on Sunday, April 14 in the morning. Faced with an outcry, her entourage called her earlier decision to attend “a human error”.

    The official programme of her trip to Reunion indicated that she would attend a religious service, but Nathalie Loiseau refused, reported Le Figaro. But the entourage of the former minister quickly deleted the planned trip to the Church of the Holy Spirit.

    Worldwide even leaders such as South Korean President Moon Jae-in conveyed a message of deep consolation over a fire that engulfed Paris’ iconic Cathedral. Seoul’s foreign ministry on Tuesday noted that the “cause of the blaze remains unclear” according to reports.

    “We’d like to extend our words of consolation to the French people and their government,” a spokesperson for the president added. Earlier, South Korea’s Cultural Heritage Administration also voiced “deep regret” for the cathedral fire.

    A TIME Magazine columnist, Christopher J Hale, tweeted that a worker at the cathedral told him the fire had been started on purpose.

    • So both Jews and Muslims celebrate the burning of Notre Dame. Interesting, the cousins are united, in common cause, against Europeans, wherever we reside. They were probably happy about the other 875 churches vandalized in France last year, but gloated privately. Now they’re emboldened enough, they celebrate publicly.

      Cui bono? Both Jew and Muslim. I wonder who was behind the fire, the (((wielder))) or the tool.

      • The dead lady of clown town

        I have seen Chinese and Thais happy about the ND fire too. The world is full of enemies of western civilisation.

        • Maybe so. But I don’t see Chinese or Thai motive here. Or in the other 875 churches vandalized in 2018.

          IF there are enemies waiting in the wings, that doesn’t minimize more immediate threats, posed by enemies right in front of us.

          Jews first. Then third-world invaders. Chinese and Thais can get in line.

          • The dead lady of clown town

            The motive is race-hatred. In Europe those two are among the invaders. They are in our cities.

            • “Race-hatred”? You live in their world, without fear for your safety.

              Meanwhile, real race hatred “deconstructs whiteness” (((Academia))). Real race hate from (((media))) posits America is a “proposition nation”, an idea open to all, rather than a nation of European peoples, founded by Whites, for Whites. Real race hate flexes (((neocon))) muscle, and spills our blood for Israeli hegemony in the Middle East, flooding Europe with the refuse.

              Real race hate hoaxes German history, passes laws against its questioning, then subjects ALL White nations to a Great Population Replacement, to atone for the “sin” of having once named our enemy. Tikkun Olam “repairs” the world by browning the White away.

              So why deflect to Chinese and Thais?

            • The dead lady of clown town

              Because it’s not deflection.Their hatred is real. It isn’t their world because Europe doesn’t belong to Europeans anymore. There is also a matter of us being a lot more useful than them. I am legal, many of them are not. You are wrong about my safety. Nobody is safe. I need all my deviousness to stay alive, but then I would too if I lived anywhere else. You are fixated on jews and muslims and refuse to see that the west has many more enemies.

            • brazos

              I agree, some look just like us . White self loathing leftists, even the Vatican in some cases..the whole continent of Africa and the Chinese as well..and that is not a complete list even…

            • You live in Laos, in the Asian world. I was surprised, and even a little worried, but you said it “suits” you, and your mother doesn’t worry. So I assumed you were safe there, or you’d leave. Are you saying you can’t get out? I thought you liked it there, weather aside.

              Europe does belong to Europeans, so long as Europeans breathe. We don’t say Africa doesn’t belong to Africans, or Asians shouldn’t have Asia. ALL our White nations belong to us. If the day comes, Europeans can’t hold Europe against the onslaught, or Whites our other nations, what we built will fall to ruin, as Rhodesia/Zimbabwe, and now South Africa.

              I don’t “fixate” on Muslims, who are but the hammer of the Jew. The immediate enemy is Tribe, and yes, I focus on (((who))) wields the hammer, rather than their “diverse” weapons of choice. Puppet masters pull the strings, after all.

              It’s foolish, to spread one’s energy thin. I will worry about enemies to the rear, when those in front pose no immediate threat. Thus, I ignore deflections to Chinese and Thais, unless it be your contention one of those set Notre Dame afire?

              Quelle surprise, your last sentence “fixates” on straw men.

              I didn’t forget you sweet Rose, Happy Easter to you and your family.

            • You don’t have to answer. But please upvote, if you’re safe in Laos, and able to leave of your own volition, at any time. Even if you don’t avail yourself of it.

            • Can your embassy help?

        • Chinese approved of Tarrant after they read his manifest.

          Anti-Christ ?

          • The dead lady of clown town

            Anti Christian, anti-white, anti-western. And then use the internet, like Facebook to complain about how much they hate white people. Never realising the irony that without white people there would be no smartphones, no internet and no social media.
            But we know this already from blacks and Arabs. But don’t underestimate the East Asians in their similar thinking. I hear things here like: Americans never walk on the moon, they lie. Last year Chinese walk on the moon.
            Or: Japan invent car, white people steal design.
            Tons of fun.
