Earlier: Organized African Illegals Storm Pantheon In France, Two Days Before Bastille Day

The Panthéon is a grand 18th-century building in Paris where notable French people have been interred since the Revolution. Voltaire and Jean-Jacques Rousseau are there; so are mathematicians Lagrange and Condorcet, novelists Victor Hugo and Émile Zola, physicists Pierre and Marie Curie, and many other notables of French national culture.

It was therefore very shocking to see a mob of several hundred young men rioting in the Panthéon last Friday. These were all blacks, illegal aliens from West Africa, demanding legal residence in France. After several hours they were removed by police, with 37 arrests made.

Readers: watch the storming of the Panthéon below.

Then go to one of those Steve Sailer posts where Steve ponders what he calls "the world's most important graph."

Then give me your odds on European civilization surviving this century.
