Eric Zemmour: BLM riots show convergence of Antifa and migrants
In an interview on CNews, the popular French commentator Eric Zemmour discussed the Black Lives Matter riots. He pointed out that despite being staged in such widely differing countries, they all have the same modus operandi.

“As usual the media didn’t want to talk about it. We’d already had the same with the Cologne riots, the rapes in Cologne, you remember? In 2015? In 2015, all those women on New Year’s Eve had been raped by the migrants. So there, it’s the same thing,” said Zemmour.
“Just look at the images and turn down the sound. Ok, so if you just look at the images, you could imagine it’s Stuttgart, but it could be in Paris. Then you could imagine it’s Brussels, it could be in London, or it could be in Minneapolis.”
Zemmour said migrant riots were part of the same political movement. “I would even say historical, meaning the intersection, the famous “convergence of struggles“, has finally arrived. That means, the leftists, the Antifa, have allied with the migrants.”
The notion of the “convergence of struggles” is a Marxist term used to denote the coming together of different groups who strive for the same objective.
“And these people, the Antifa, the leftists, who dream of destroying world capitalism, who dream of destroying the white Western countries, that’s how they talk. They have found their ‘proletariat’ which will launch the attack on those countries. Meaning, the African, the Maghreb migrants, etc,” Zemmour pointed out.
“We can see that little by little, the class war has become a race war. Between civilizations. Between the Christian world and the Islamic world. We can all see this is happening and that in all countries the same thing is happening. Why is it happening? Because we have implemented the same policy everywhere.”
Zemmour said since 2015 when Chancellor Angela Merkel brought in one million migrants from Syria, as well as the migrants who joined them from the Maghreb and Africa, the problem has been compounded.
“You have to understand, it takes time. First they arrive. They have to get settled in, they have to be welcomed, etc, start a life, etc, and then little by little they make you aware of their numbers. They are being exploited by the leftists and the Antifa and so on.
“Ultimately, there’s a connection among them all. We all see it. We saw that in France with [Adama] Traoré. That means there’s a convergence among the leftists, the racialists, the blacks and the Islamists.”
Using the death of the Malian Adama Traoré in 2016 to inflame public debate, the Traoré family accuses the police of killing their brother. His sister had called for an illegal march to coincide with US race protests. The funding for her operation comes from the US.
According to Zemmour, it is the same thing in Germany. “Why are we used to this kind of rioting and violence in France, but in Germany it’s so surprising? In Germany the country is in shock [after the Stuttgart riot]. The politicians are in shock. The politicians say they’ve never seen anything like this. I’ll tell you why.
“In the ’60s we had two very different types of immigration; they had Turks. Turkish workers, who didn’t become Germans, they weren’t entitled to state benefits, who were confined to their own neighbourhoods and so on, and they were under the control of the Turkish government. So it was very controlled. We weren’t in control of anything at all [in France].”
He said Germany was “running late” while in France everyone has become used to it. “We had the riots in 2005. We had other riots. We are used to it, because we’re more advanced. We have the largest Muslim community in Europe. The Islamists we have started their work in France very early on. Earlier than Germany. Tariq Ramadan and the Muslim Brotherhood prefer working in France rather than in Germany. France has been at the heart of their action for the last 30 years.
“For the Germans, it’s more recent. It has been accelerated by the historic mistake of Madame Merkel, who reasoned with the thinking of an economist that, you know, all men are consumers or producers. So it’s either blond blue-eyed Germans or Syrians or Algerians. They’re all the same. They’ll be the same to make the factories run and to consume and well, it’s not exactly working out like that.
“So, we can see what’s starting to happen in that country.”
Zemmour also cited the example of Sweden. “Then there’s Sweden. In Sweden it was the same thing. The riots in Malmö. An insane amount of delinquency. The explosion of rapes. In the wisest country, the quietest in Europe.”
He underscored that both Germany and Sweden do not have the same history as France of Britain when it comes to colonies in Africa and the Maghreb. For that reason, he argued, that open borders were created on purpose to create the “convergence of struggles” which has now become the vanguard of a race war against the West.
“I’m talking about Sweden. It’s by design. Like Germany, they weren’t colonizing countries. So they aren’t people who have to pay for colonization, and yet, you said it yourself, it’s the same images. The same riots. The same violence. The same movements. The same faces. All the same thing.”
In a debate on the same channel on Friday, June 26, Zemmour faced neocon apologist Bernard Henry Levy, also known as the “philosopher” BHL. The two men discussed current affairs, including immigration and racism.
Zemmour denounced “the ideological appropraition of the anti-racist movement which is actually a racist anti-white movement”. But Zemmour went even further, and blamed the movement on Bernard-Henri Lévy. “You are the father of this movement because you were the founder of SOS Racisme. You have put race in the political battle. We will never get over it. You woke up the racists,” he told his opponent, before adding: “You have killed France and even the Republic. You gave birth to a multicultural movement, and yet black activists hate you today.”
Zemmour continued: “You see the history of France with the glasses of anti-fascism. What anti-racist activists are doing today in the name of race is what you did in the name of fascism.”
CNews host Christine Kelly then asked the two men to comment on the issue of revising history that race activists want to undertake. Zemmour accused BHL of fomenting this revolt: “Statue breakers, they just keep your job going. You have treated the great historical figures as fascists, they call them colonialists,” said Zemmour.
The two men also discussed the immigration issue. BHL recalled that he had gone to the island of Lesbos, off the coast of Greece, to visit a migrant camp. It was widely reported in the press. But Zemmour was not impressed: “When you go to Lesbos, you will see our invaders. Don’t make it a claim to fame,” he said and continued: “The world that you denounce is the world that you have made. The world of false international solidarity, of borderless people.”

EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.
Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.
The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.
Top Researchers Push Back Against Climate Lies."The correlation is as clear as day," explained the Israeli astrophysicist Nir Shaviv, who was hailed by the establishment, before his interview with Forbes was hastily deleted. What he says contradicts the climate narrative, which points to humans as responsible for Earth's climate. Shaviv firmly asserts that it is the sun that controls the climate, something that can be scientifically proven in many ways. Contrary to the popular belief, the sun's influence on Earth has, in recent years, caused unusually cold and rainy weather, a trend that solar researchers warn will worsen significantly in the coming decades. The sun has exhibited an unusually low activity since 2016, during Solar Cycle 24, which was the weakest in a century.
Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.
The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."

After a criminal complaint in Belgium against the President of the European Commission, the so-called SMS-case, now takes a new turn. The judge responsible for the investigation will likely gain access to the secret messages exchanged between Ursula von der Leyen and Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, at least if they haven't been deleted.
Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
The Catholic bishops of the Scandinavian countries presented an open five-page letter criticizing transgender ideology on March 21, just before Easter.
