Something Wonderful: "A Declaration of War" - From the Youth of France

Sounds like it's time to kick un-repentant hippie butt!!

Enfin! Une lueur d'espoir de la France occupée. Vive Génération-Identitaire!

Kind of embarrassing... the French kids are ready to kick ass, the American kids are looking for handouts.

France is failing and will collapse with the rest of Europe.

The last stand will happen here.

It really is wonderful, but I have to get past the black and white seriousness of it sounding like Henri le Chat.

Posted by Joan of Argghh! at October 9, 2012 6:04 PM

Great. Another revolution in France. They always end so well.

Posted by Cameron at October 9, 2012 9:43 PM

Declare your war, and fight it boldly. I have to live with the shame of my generation, and the years I endorsed the lies it stood for. God willing, you will do better.

"We don't need your youth policies. Youth IS our policy.

Don't think this is simply a manifesto. It is a declaration of war.

You are of yesterday. We are of tomorrow."

While most if sounds okay, and I agree with the general principle, i.e. the 68ers were jerks who screwed up the next 40+ years, the last three lines don't fill me with confidence or the warm fuzzies. I've got to go with Cameron on this one, French revolutions don't ever end well.

The people that tried to set Chicago on fire in '68 were full of anger and lacked an effective plan as to what to do about it; see what that got them? As a generation, by the time they got into power, their minds had rotted into nothing and they had largely embraced their oblivion, either by succumbing to catatonia or failing to do the work required to correct their condition.

Youth, you need a better plan. If all you think you need to do is set things on fire and then magically your problems are solved, your generation and those that follow lose. Think harder than the '68ers did.

Do the muhammadans still torch a hundred cars a night in Paris?

Good! Looks like "The Dissident Frogman" is not alone.

Posted by Cond0011 at October 10, 2012 6:41 AM

Not completely wonderful.

The foolish and destructive policies of the May68ers certainly earn them enmity, but some of the language of this manifesto worries me.

For instance, I'm old enough to remember the ugly associations of phrases like "forced mixing of the races".

And what do they really mean by "We no longer believe that 'Khader' could ever be our brother"? Do they mean that nobody with a Middle Eastern or African or Asian name could ever be their brother? I very much see Ayaan Hirsi Ali as my sister. Likewise Egyptian ex-pat Bat Ye'or. How about Fouad Ajami and Kanan Makiya? Dambisa Moyo? Perhaps their manifesto is phrased in such absolute terms for rhetorical purposes, but I'd want to know a lot more about Generation Identitaire before I'd decide to support it.

But setting aside for the moment my worries about racial nationalism, I'd like to note that such extremist reaction is a natural reaction to the inevitable failures of utopian internationalism. It happened before in Europe, as we all know.

And in another side note, ancient Sparta could be characterized as a fascistic state. The other Greeks honored Sparta for Thermopylae and respected Sparta's strength, but were simultaneously uneasy about Sparta's political system.

"Every revolutionary ends by becoming an oppressor or heretic. All modern revolutions have ended with a reinforcement of the power of the state"--

If they have taken Tocqueville and Bastiet to heart, this will change France. Otherwise they will become France.

"The notorious failure of reforming and revolutionary movements in the long run may as a rule be found due to their incorrigible superficiality"--

Not that all brands of incorrigible superficiality are created equal, as we will contest once again Nov. 6.

Ah, the smell of fascism in the morning. I think it was the most successful and diverse form of socialism. I'm more than a bit curious about the politics of these people.

Posted by chuck at October 10, 2012 8:26 AM

The symbol presented at the end of the video resembles that of the anarchists. The anger and frustration expressed are clearly justified. And sweeping structural transformations are headed our way - whether we like it or not - in the near future. The post-WWII Age is ending. The path back to societal regeneration under a new (or a return to the traditional) set of common principles will be torturous and twisted. But the alternative is a generalized global chaos and, at the extreme, a WWIII. An anarchist recipe if ever there was one.

Posted by boqueronman at October 10, 2012 8:45 AM

I hate what the baby boomer generation has foisted upon us, as much as the people in this video, but this is fascism with a dramatic soundtrack. This video chills me to the core. My husband always warned me that when the Europeans finally get fed-up and rise-up against the Islamists in their midst, that it will be a blood bath, and it appears he is correct.

Posted by Chris m. at October 10, 2012 9:24 AM

Yes, the arrogance THE ARROGANCE of the hippie generation and their marxist forefathers has brought us to this point. We are NOT startdust, we are NOT golden, and we CANNOT "get ourselves" back to the garden, because we are human beings.
We are not perfect.
Yet all across the world, many were brainwashed into believing that we could "imagine all the people" suddenly overcoming those base parts of our human nature and becoming one; that through simple hippy-dippy, lovey-dovey goodness, the Pol Pots, Idi Amins, Saddams and Achmadinejads (and your local rapist, gang-banger, or serial killer) would simultaneously see the light and ride the rainbow, that we'd all buy the world a Coke...
And so, finally, we saw it all come together in The One, the god/man who would "lower the seas" and bring us peace in our time. And boy did he play it well, pandering to those who felt that America owed them something, and to those who hate America...
Well guess what, it's becoming clear to many that those who want just keep on wanting, because you and I OWE it to them. And they want more, and they always will.
And those that hate America, well hot damn, they heard all those America-hating apologies and recognized that with this much self-hatred, America was weak and ripe for the slaughter, and they've pounced, and continue pouncing.
Barack, you dumb sonuvabitch, the rabid dogs are biting that extended hand.
They will not be tamed nor healed, so quit trying.
It will take much, very much, to try and undo the harm caused in these past 4 years and begin to push back, IF we can fire this shit-for-brains next month.

The video is advocating national socialism.

Posted by Chris m. at October 10, 2012 10:36 AM

Really? How can you tell?

Posted by vanderleun at October 10, 2012 10:51 AM

Perhaps they are just tired of the Moslems?

Posted by vizslak72 at October 10, 2012 4:40 PM

Chris m "The video is advocating national socialism."

No, we don't know that. It's possible that the makes of the video are indeed fascists or quasi-fascists of some sort, but it's also possible that the video makers merely chose over-the-top rhetoric with some disturbing associations. In order to arrive at any conclusion we need to know more about the organization.

Posted by pst314 at October 10, 2012 5:12 PM

vizslak72 "Perhaps they are just tired of the Moslems?"

Well, yes, dealing on a daily basis with intolerant, violent immigrants who see themselves as enemies of their host country can cause people to become more than a bit angry.

Posted by pst314 at October 10, 2012 5:16 PM

Agree that this could go very badly, or it could be a first step in the right direction. But everything the '68 generation has touched has turned to merde, so they at least got that part right.

Posted by waltj at October 10, 2012 5:47 PM

They have a web site.

Posted by chuck at October 10, 2012 6:45 PM

I'm with Chuck and pst314 on this one. Smells way too much of fascism. "Forced mixing of races"? the language is a more than a bit scary.

"Forced mixing of races"

Huh... they DID say that.

Yea, thats NOT cool.

Lets listen to the rest of the message...

1. The Social Prgarms are not working and are Bankrupting the country
2. The Multi-Cultural experiement is a total failure and the original French Culure that made it a success is disappearing.
3. They are sick of all the Socialist lies and re-engineering of society and observe that society as a whole is going backwards.
4. These are disaffected youth who are saying this and are refusing to listen to their socialist leaders.
5. These youths are going back to their french cultural roots and closing the door on the socialists ideas.
6. Oh... here we go. Quote "You are from the years of post war prosperity, SOS RACISM, diversity, and a bag of rice from Bernard Kochner.
7. Aonther one: ""We are 25 percent unemployment, social debt, multicultural collapse,and an explosion of anti-white racism."

Yea... chuck and OneOfThree, ONE guy DID say that. But, the rest of the stuff is a bullsesye.

Doesn't sound fascist to me. Infact, it sounds like they are fighting facism (i.e. the Multi-Culti Socialists) who are destroying the French culture.

Be very careful here.

Much of what they say is very seductive, but it is indeed a "Tomorrow Belongs to Me" manifesto. I understand their anger, but what will be the consequences of that anger if they become a force to be reckoned with?

One thing that is forgotten about the expression "when good people do nothing," is that good people need to sometimes take radical action to pre-empt and co-opt the likes of those in this video, so that common sense and civilization prevail. These are not the Tea Parties.

Posted by Don Rodrigo at October 12, 2012 2:43 PM

To drive home my point: from the video's transcript:

"You are of yesterday. We are of tomorrow."

The Hitlerjungen song it echoes was a stirring melody too.

Posted by Don Rodrigo at October 12, 2012 2:45 PM

Thanks for the variety of your posts. I will be interesting. I didn't think there was any hope for France when they elected their socialist president.
How many French troops have died in Afghanistan ?
Are they helping their former colonies like Algeria and Tunisia also ?

Posted by Grace at October 12, 2012 11:40 PM

The enemy of my enemy is not necessarily my friend.

I wish them well, suggest that they look less to their own enlightenment, and more to that of the Scottish, but fear that they wont.

Which pretty much means this will not end well.
