American Renaissance's "Successful Unsuccessful" Conference
Here's an excerpt from the report of the AR Conference that had to take place more or less in private, although it was streamed over the internet by NPITV, which should have video available at some point:
AR staff, Special to AR News, February 7, 2011
Despite cancellation of the full-scale American Renaissance conference scheduled for February 4 through 6 in Charlotte, North Carolina, the speakers gathered to hold what is becoming known as a very successful unsuccessful conference. The talks were a marvelous combination of politics, history, commentary, and inspiration. They were all professionally recorded and will be available soon as both Internet downloads and CDs. All participants greatly regretted that the approximately 200 people who had initially registered for the event were unable to attend.
The conference was opened by Filip Dewinter, one of the top leaders of the Vlaams Belang. The VB is the main opposition party in the Flemish parliament, and is one of many increasingly influential European parties devoted to strengthening European and regional identities and to protecting the continent from religious and demographic transformation.
In his talk, "The Colonization of Europe: How Europe Will Become Eurabia," Mr. Dewinter described in chilling detail the Muslim tidal wave that is sweeping across Europe. In the very period when Europeans birthrates have dropped well below replacement levels, Muslim populations are surging, and are projected to reach 73 million by 2030. The admission of Turkey to the European Union would add yet another 80 million Muslims.
Mr. Dewinter decried the current fashion of multiculturalism which, he said, "attacks national identity the way AIDS attacks the body's immune system," leaving Europeans defenseless against cultural invasion. But perhaps the most disturbing part of his talk consisted of quotations from Muslims themselves. Abu Imran, one of the Islamic leaders of Belgium has said:
"We won't rest until Europe has become an Islamic state. And then we will march on toward the White House and Vatican. We will carry out the promise of our dear Prophet. In a peaceful way, but we will continue until the Lord Grants us victory."
Haouri Boumedienne, president of Algeria, has said:
"One day, millions of men will leave the Southern Hemisphere to go to the Northern Hemisphere. And they will not go there as friends. Because they will go there to conquer it."
Recep Erdogan, the current prime minister of Turkey, makes no secret of his intentions: "Mosques are our barracks, domes our helmets, minarets our bayonets, believers our soldiers." He has also said that "democracy is like a train, we shall get out when we arrive at the station we want."
Fortunately, noted Mr. Dewinter, there many increasingly influential opposition parties in Europe in addition to his own, which are fighting what he called the "hereditary enemy of Europe": the Northern League in Italy, the Freedom Party of Austria, the Swedish Democrats, the Danish People's Party, and others. They are joining forces across the continent to preserve the civilization and culture of the West.[More]
There's a lot more, that's just a sample. Of course, it's very hard for European nationalist groups to join forces with other European nationalist groups, because they all remember that the history of Europe is basically armed conflict between the nations they represent. Remember the Schleswig-Holstein Question? If the answer is no, don't worry about, so have most people! Unless they're either Danish or German, in which case they've been brooding over it since 1864.
