The other day, I asked “can it happen here?” The Radio Patriot reminded me that it is already happening there, in France. Mark Steyn talked about the demographic destruction of Europe in his book America Alone: The End of the World As We Know It. But he didn’t include maps. The most striking thing in the link to the post about the radical changes in France is the growth in the number of mosques.
In our children’s lifetime, the Catholic nation of France, the nation that was at the center of unimaginable bloodshed to maintain its Catholic identity (think of the St. Bartholomew’s Day massacre, for example), will become a Muslim nation through a fairly bloodless, demographic coup. So fall great nations. I’ve never been a huge francophile, but I find this sad in a way I did not find the fall of the Soviet Union, an empire collapse I thought was (to borrow from Martha Stewart) a “good thing.”
