Steve Sailer on the French election and Houellebecq’s ‘Submission’
Steve Sailer writes:
For instance, Submission includes the seemingly random sentence “For a while there’d been rumors that Renaud Camus was writing some of her speeches, under the direction of Florian Philippot.” French readers, however, would be aware that the novelist Camus is certainly—and the political operative Philippot is likely—homosexual. Gay Frenchmen, especially in Paris, have been flocking toward the National Front to protect them from Islamic thugs. In the very long run, however, there is little anomalous about this in a growing big-tent nationalist party arrayed against an establishment insistent upon policies that would eventually turn the homeland over to an alien and hostile culture.
