I mentioned Renaud Camus in a previous post.
The man recently declared he was running for the French presidency.
I like his Great Replacement meme. So do European Identitarians.
For one, it is easy to inflect: replaced, replacer, replacist, antireplacist, replacism.
Secondly, it applies in many ways and on many levels. It goes beyond, and needs to go beyond, the ethnocultural. When leftists respond with: “what data do you have to back up your theory?”, Renaud Camus tells them not to let their judgment be replaced. The Great Replacement isn’t a theory, it’s a name to put on something we are experiencing.
Thirdly, it doesn’t provide a concept of French identity, or of European identity. I do believe we absolutely need such a concept.
Here’s his video:
What is replacism, if not progressivism’s death wish? Let’s spread this meme.
