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.”

      The rate of protests in South Africa rose dramatically in 2012 when remnants of ethnic communities were being forced to integrate by the ANC. By February 2014 there were 3000 violent protest actions in 90 days – more than 30 a day – involving more than a million people. Under Apartheid this was never the case. The international media blew up one or two violent demonstrations in Soweto for their own agenda. After 1994 they were no longer interested in the chaos they helped to create in the country. So it’s no surprise that parallel communities work much better as the Turkish example in Germany shows.
