Vandals Attack a French Cathedral

No one knows why it happened. No one knows who did it. And yet, take a wild guess: who would have wanted to vandalize a French cathedral, the Basilica of St. Denis, first built in the twelfth and early thirteenth centuries?

One guess might be that the St. Denis region of France is inhabited by what are now called migrants. That is, with Muslim migrants who have turned large parts of the Paris suburbs into No-Go zones. And who did not just arrive yesterday. The story of Muslim migrants in France is a story of failed assimilation. 

Anyway, Jim Hoft has the story of desecration on the Gateway Pundit (via Maggie’s Farm). He quotes from Searchlight Germany:

The over 800-year-old Basilica of Saint-Denis in France was heavily vandalised this week, with vandals smashing stained glass windows and severely damaging the nearly 200-year-old organ.

The destruction was discovered on Sunday morning by the basilica’s organist, who found that the engine of the organ had been damaged along with other parts of the massive instrument, designed between 1834 and 1841, Le Parisien reports.

Saadia Tamelikecht, head of the departmental unit of architecture and heritage of the heavily migrant-populated Seine-Saint-Denis suburbs, said the damage to the instrument, which has been recognised as a historic monument of significance in France, was major.The vandalism was likely done, according to Tamelikecht, as a result of someone hiding within the instrument and smashing their way out.On Tuesday, even more damage was discovered, with two stained glass windows having been smashed along with two locks that had been pried open. The windows were created in the 19th century, rebuilt after the destruction of the French revolution. Police say they are investigating the incidents.

The vandalism comes just under a year after the Basilica was stormed by far-left activists and illegal migrants who occupied the place of worship to protest a law directed at curbing illegal migration into France.

Another day, another assault on Western religion. How many people care?

The complete destruction of Venezuela has been instructive for the rest of South America. Brazil may have dodged a bullet because Venezuela committed socialist suicide. Columbia noticed as well.

The Muslim immigration lessons from France and Sweden provide instruction for other nations of Western Europe, Eastern Europe and the United States of the dangers of allowing Islam into their societies. Do NOT let them in.

But watching an ancient and intelligent nation like France fall into ruin, destroyed from within by sub-literate savages, is painful to watch; it's like seeing a tarantula devour a puppy alive.

What would Richelieu do I wonder? Charles Martel? Islam delenda est.

Barbells, Krav Maga, and tactical weapons training. War is coming.

The French roll over and play dead. May not be "playing", next time...
