Violence In Corsica
Most readers of this site will already have heard about the latest round of hopeful news from Corsica. On a beach on the small Mediterranean Island on Saturday a massive fight broke about between White native Corsicans and Muslim immigrants from North Africa. Apparently someone was even stabbed with a harpoon. As the Telegraph explains:
Riot police were summoned and a man was injured by a harpoon when a mass brawl broke out on a beach in Corsica, apparently triggered by a tourist taking a photo of women in “burkinis”.
The incident came after the mayor of Cannes banned women from wearing the full-body, head-covering swimsuits on beaches of his Riviera town.
The riot in Corsica took place on Saturday in a cove near the village of Sisco in the north of the French Mediterranean island.
“It happened because a tourist was taking photos,” said Ange-Pierre Vivoni, the local mayor, on TF1 television. “And the Maghrebins (North Africans) didn’t want to have their photos taken. It was quite a trivial matter to begin with.”
Things got out of hand when young men of North African origin harangued the tourist who took the pictures, prompting local youngsters to intervene in defence of the visitor.
Police are still trying to establish how the incident turned into a riot, but local media said that a group of older North African men soon arrived, some armed with hatchets and harpoons, and took on the young Corsicans.
The unrest lasted for several hours, during which three cars were burned and four people had to be taken to hospital, one of them for a wound caused by a harpoon. A pregnant woman was among those hospitalised. Bernard Cazeneuve, the interior minister, was forced to issue a statement calling for calm.
Tensions were still high on Sunday, when a crowd of around 500 gathered in the nearby town of Bastia and tried to enter a housing estate with a high immigrant population. They chanted: “To arms, this is our place and we will go where we want.”
Riot police held back the mob, which eventually dispersed
Why There, Why Now?
This follows other, similar events in Corsica that we covered here. Since these are the exact sort of events that we wish for in Europe (Native Europeans fighting back against the invading and imported Muslims that attack them and rape their women and children), it behooves us to ask: Why Corsica?
My thoughts on it are multifaceted, and were prompted in part by an email discussion I was having with an Australian reader of this site. The general explanation many on both sides would give is that Corsicans are a small, island people who have (as a result of their isolation) retained tribal characteristics and traditional “paternalism” to a far greater extent than Europeans on the mainland. This is all certainly logical.
However what I thought of while emailing back and forth is another (though similar) explanation, which is that unlike native Europeans in Germany, Sweden, and the UK- Corsicans don’t have anywhere else to go. Because they live on an island, they can’t keep moving another hour down the road to the newest gated suburb or gentrified city-scape. Their very isolation forces them to confront the resettlement of their nation by Muslim invaders.
As a result, these Corsican’s are doing everything we wish would happen across the rest of Europe: they are aggressively fighting back on the ground, refusing to give in physically to roving bands of Orc savages; they are gathering together in large groups, and using their numbers to both protest and raise awareness, as well as to intimidate; and they are calling the situation what it is- the first stirrings of a civil war.
To attempt to extrapolate from that, perhaps it is a sign that as the Muslim population continues to grow greater and greater across the continent, and the native Europe people become more and more surrounded, they will fight back too and go full Corsican. I know the idea sound quite attractive to me.
