Jean Raspail Dies At 94: Lived Long Enough To Say "I Told You So"
Print Friendly and PDF

Jean Raspail,  author of The Camp Of The Saints, a 1973 novel about mass migration destroying France and the West, has died at age 94. So far it seems to have only been reported in the French media, with headlines like Mort de Jean Raspail, écrivain et explorateur, auteur du «Camp des Saints», by Michaël Naulin, Le Figaro, July 13, 2020. [Google Translate]

At the moment, when search Google News for "Raspail," you get French death notices, and New York Times story, illustrated with a picture of presidential aide Stephen Miller, titled A Racist Book’s Malign and Lingering Influence, by Elian Peltier and Nicholas Kulish, NYT, November 22, 2019.

Miller and GOP Congressman Steve King are alleged to have read Raspail's book, and to have pointed out—correctly—that it was prophetic, and that's a bad thing, according to the NYT, which is in the business of deciding what's not fit to print, and suppressing it. (Their story is in the "news," rather than Opinion section of the paper.)
