There is a massive cultural rejection of the increasingly insane Left that will occur throughout Western civilization and will last at least a century.
In recent days the entire European Identitarian movement was banned by Facebook in an incredible act of censorship that will is already triggering social repercussions.
Like their fellow Marxists in America, the European Left has decided that any defense of Western culture and ‘identity’ is racist, bigoted, and thus criminal behavior — though no one is advocating violence against minorities and migrants.
As reported by Breitbart London, Facebook has decreed there shall be no “Europe First!” movement that mirrors the UK’s Brexit and President Donald Trump’s “MAGA.”
The site noted:
The anti-mass migration Generation Identity movement has been banned permanently from Facebook, after all of their official pages were deleted due to “extremist content.”
For weeks movement supporters had seen scores of pages steadily removed from the social media behemoth’s platform with hardly an explanation. But a recently-published report claimed that Facebook arbitrarily banned the “hipster-right identitarians, accusing them of posting ‘extremist content,’” Breitbart noted.
The news report noted that the identitarians have also been dubbed “hipster fascists” — which is the Left’s most common slur against Right-leaning policies which include limited immigration and migrant resettlement.
What’s frustrating about the Facebook censorship and the banning of “Alt-Right, racist” groups who are trying to push for immigration and migrant relocation limits is that no one on the Left even wants to hear why such limits are important.

The U.S. serves as a good example.
From about 1920 on, the Congress began placing severe limits on immigration and migration to the United States which, at the time, was coming largely from Europe. The reason was lawmakers and policymakers wanted to give the waves of new arrivals time to assimilate into our culture and traditions, to learn our history and our language and customs. They believed in welcoming immigrants, but they also knew that unless the millions of immigrants were given time to assimilate, America would wind up becoming a nation of nation-states, essentially, with large and ever-expanding pockets of nationalities who did not share all of our values.
Such countries are inherently unstable because ultimately someone or several someones will come along and seek to win power by dividing the various cultural and ethnic groups.
Like we’re seeing the Democratic Party do today.
But because some countries in Europe have a bigoted history and the continent has been ravaged by global war twice in the past 100 years, the Leftists running things would rather welcome all who come no matter how disruptive it has become while tamping down any and all opposition — which is actually having the effect of creating more unrest.
And all while they claim to be running democracies.
Shutting one side of the debate down isn’t democratic. It’s authoritarian. What’s more, doing so doesn’t make the issue go away. Sometimes overly authoritarian attempts to quash a movement only causes the movement to grow, and that’s happening in Europe like Democratic outrageousness in calling for Trump supporters to be harassed in public is decreasing national support for their party.
Facebook, by the way, has confirmed it has banned the Identarian Movement from its platform, “citing their policies against extremist content and organized hate groups.”
When is Left-wing content considered “extreme” — or is it? When are Left-wing organizations and movements considered “hate groups” — or are they?
In a republic like ours, “democratic socialism” should be considered very extreme for the principle reason that socialism isn’t “democratic” it’s authoritarian.
Maybe the speech Nazis at Facebook should pick up a social studies or history book and do a little reading.
