It is great moments of national feeling that separate those who belong from those who merely reside.
This is why, historically, antisemitism has tended to rise during wars. Jewish indifference to the cause marked them as outsiders, transients with no deep-rooted feeling for the country they lived in.
Today wars in the developed world are rare, but the same empathy gaps are apparent whenever major terrorist attacks or national tragedies occur.
While the French mourn the loss of one of their national symbols, ethnic Europeans throughout the world feel a pang of empathy, recognising that part of the civilisational patrimony has been lost.
Jews, Muslims and browns, however, can barely contain their glee. French social media is alight with the fire of brown hate.
“It’s at times like this when you feel almost nothing while watching a monument burn that you realise something may have gone wrong with your integration.”
Followed by lots of smiley emojis from people agreeing.
French social media is alight with Muslims celebrating the fire in comments like this: “ALLAH AKBAR fuck France and fuck the PIGS KARMA, now it will be destroyed and a mosque will be built INSHALLAH”
“I hope all of France burns. It is the enemy of Africa and took all our old…”
“You take the mickey out of Islam. You support a guy who makes fun of Mecca. Allah responded quickly.”
Non-Muslim People of Brown seem to be in on the gloat game too.
Of course, our Jewish friends have taken the opportunity to once again show us their quality.
Jews have really been letting themselves go in their comments on the Jerusalem Post website. They think the goy aren’t watching them there. But we are.
But it’s not just ethnic malice from the aliens that we have seen in response to the fire. The strange self-hatred that afflicts European civilisation has been apparent too. Crazed leftists have celebrated the cathedral’s destruction, invoking a phrase from the Russian anarchist Kropotkin: “The only church that enlightens is the one that burns.”
It has been especially popular in Spanish, for some reason: “La única Iglesia que ilumina es la que arde.”
