June 7, 2014 The West's Last Stand -- a Review of The Camp of the Saints By Robert Klein Engler
All those engaged in the debate over illegal immigration should find Jean Raispails The Camp of the Saints a challenging summer read. Otto Scott calls it "one of the most famous of the underground books." Lionel Shriver believes it is a "novel both prescient and appalling." The book became so notorious that the December 1994 issue of the Atlantic Monthly investigated many of the questions it raised.
The Camp of the Saints was published first in 1973 in France as Le Camp des Saints. An English translation by Norman Shapiro was published by Scribner in 1975. Since then, the book has been republished and described as a "controversial and politically incorrect novel," and "a Fascist fantasy."
It is not unusual that The Camp of the Saints would originate in France. Much of what we experience today in the United States in regard to the political justification for illegal immigration also originated there. In fact, waves from the French Revolution are still washing up on shores all around the world. Blood from the Reign of Terror's guillotine simply turned into the red flag of Communism.
Jean Raspail was born in France in 1925. He is a traveler, explorer and prize winning author. He has been described as "a tall man of soldierly bearing and... a traditionalist. While he is courtesy and gentleness itself in his manner... he dislikes the incursions that Anglo-Americanisms have made into the French culture.''
The Camp of the Saints presents a reader with an alternate apocalypse from the one found in the Biblical book of Revelation.

I just ordered from Amazon. It’s temporarily out of stock, but Amazon’s resupply is usually very quick.
I wouldn’t bother. The french are sneeringly insufferable in person, and I expect a book by a french author to be roughly equivalent to a Ron Hubbard screed: full of their own sense of self-righteousness and how the world would be SO much better if only everyone else would follow the writer’s own ‘cultured’ ways.

This is one of the great early books on the immigration invasion that the first world is experiencing from the third world.
In the early sixties there was a political satire show called “That Was The Week That Was”. Charles De Gaulle was causing NATO & the British no end of trouble while acquiring his own nuclear arsenal. The space race was on between the U.S. & Soviets.
TW3 featured an `interview’ with “Madame De Gaulle” where the wife of M’sieur le President was asked why France was bypassing the space race goal of a moon landing to send a probe all the way to the planet Mars. She replied,
“Because, if there is intelligent life on Mars, they will speak FRENCH, of course!”
Anyway, Jean Raspail’s work has not aged with time and is a prescient warning for us all.
I read this years ago. Chilling book that Zero is trying to bring to reality.
I'm one of the few.
Yes. The tide of history. But as when caught in any tide, we can influence our destiny.
"Multiculturalism erases the past for the sake of a gray conformity."
The erasing of the past is part of the obfuscation of truth.
