Re the Toulouse shooter, who inconveniently turned out to be a Muslim jihadist rather than a nativist loon, from the blog Sultan Knish (tip o' the hat to PA Cat at Belmont Club):
Between all the non-stop coverage, the expressions of grief, the political pandering, no one is stating the obvious. France has been occupied all over again. Once again the occupation has been carried out with the consent of the authorities who have decided that cowardice is the only way. Vichy France has become Vichy Europe, Vichy America, Vichy Australia, where the blatant appeasement is disguised as honor, treason is portrayed as responsible leadership and collaboration in the mass murder of your own people is never acknowledged as such.
Vichy isn't the only World War II metaphor that needs wide revival. Another is Quisling.
According to Wikipedia:
The term was coined by the British newspaper The Times in an editorial published on 19 April 1940, entitled "Quislings everywhere" after the Norwegian Vidkun Quisling, who assisted Nazi Germany as it conquered his own country so that he could rule the collaborationist Norwegian government himself. The Daily Mail picked up the term four days later, and the BBC then brought it into common use internationally.The Times' editorial asserted: "To writers, the word Quisling is a gift from the gods. If they had been ordered to invent a new word for traitor...they could hardly have hit upon a more brilliant combination of letters. Aurally it contrives to suggest something at once slippery and tortuous."
Our politicians, for the most part, are not our politicians. Neither are our journalists, academics, and bureaucrats serving us.
Rather than to a foreign government occupying this country, however, their loyalty is to an ideology occupying the country. It is the ideology of the New Marxism, in which the proletariat (too white, too traditional) has had its dictatorship privileges revoked in favor of the non-indigenous population, brought to these shores under a special import license (de facto open borders), supplemented by the old-line minorities.
We no longer can count on defenders, on leaders. There are only overlords, the Quislings who see their advantage in political correctness and population replacement.
