The Great Replacement, Part 7: An Introduction to Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi

Kalergi

Over the course of the last few months, we’ve been looking at The Great Replacement in a number of European countries. We started off with France, just before the French Presidential Election, and we finished off with Sweden. In each of these previous articles, we studied each country’s immigration history and current demographic information (including ethnic and religious make up) in quite some depth.

Moving forward in this series, we’ll be looking at Europe as a whole. We’ll be exploring how immigration and fertility rates have altered our continent and we’ll be providing an overview of what Europe looks like today and how things are expected to look in the future.

We’d like to start the concluding parts of our series by looking at some theory behind the Great Replacement, namely; the ideas of Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi and Earnest Albert Hooton.

In this article, we will be focusing on the ideas of Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi.

 

An Introduction to Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi

“The European question can be summoned in these three words: Unification or collapse”

Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi was an Austrian-Japanese politician and philosopher. His father, Heinrich Coudenhove-Kalergi, was an Austro-Hungarian count and diplomat of mixed European descent, and his mother, Mitsuko Aoyama, was Japanese. Kalergi was born in Japan in 1894. His childhood name was Aoyama Eijiro. He took Czechoslovak nationality in 1919 and then French nationality in 1939, which he kept until his death in 1972.

As well as Japan and Austria, Kalergi had family roots in Greece, the Netherlands, England, Italy, Belgium, Spain and Norway. As a result, it is perhaps not surprising that Kalergi felt no sense of belonging to one particular nation.

Despite his importance, Kalergi is a man who is pretty much unknown to the masses. Many refer to him as the founder of the European Union due to his lifelong work towards European integration. It was Kalergi who chose Beethoven’s ‘Ode to Joy’ as Europe’s national anthem and he also worked closely with the team who chose the 12-star design of the European Union.

Kalergi had an extremely dark side though, and rather than supporting the idea of Europeans working together but maintaining their national identities, he instead promoted the idea of miscegenation between Europeans and non-Whites with the aim of creating a mixed raced, multinational flock of Europeans who could easily be controlled by the ruling elite.

The ruling elite, according to Kalergi, would be the Jews; a race of people he described as having “spiritual supremacy”.

Thanks to Kalergi’s close relationships with European aristocrats and politicians, he was able to engage the co-operation of a number of influential leaders, getting them on board with his plans to create a “United States of Europe”.

 

The Kalergi Plan: “The Man of the Future Will Be of Mixed Race…”

In 1925, Kalergi wrote a book titled Praktischer Idealismus (Practical Idealism). In it, he describes how in the future, our individual European ethnicities will be watered down by miscegenation to create a new breed of easy-to-control “mongrels”. Please note, being mixed race himself, Kalergi also described himself as a “mongrel”.

Kalergi believed that peace wasn’t possible in Europe while separate ethnocentric nations existed in violent competition with each other. He wanted individual nations and borders to disappear, and by making this happen, a European superstate could be formed where the “uberintelligent” Jews could rule over.

Kalergi wrote:

“The man of the future will be of mixed race. Today’s races and classes will gradually disappear owing to the vanishing of space, time, and prejudice. The Eurasian–Negroid race of the future, similar in its appearance to the Ancient Egyptians, will replace the diversity of peoples with a diversity of individuals.”

“Instead of destroying European Judaism, Europe, against her will, refined and educated this people, driving them to their future status as a leading nation through this artificial evolutionary process. It’s not surprising that the people that escaped from the Ghetto-Prison, became the spiritual nobility of Europe.”

 

He continued:

“As a people, Jews experience the eternal struggle of quantity against quality; inferior groups against superior individuals; inferior majorities against superior minorities.”

 

Kalergi promoted the idea of abolishing the right of nations to self-determination. He outlined the break-up of nation states through separatist movements (think Catalonia in present-day Europe) and mass open door immigration. As the continent’s new mixed-raced inhabitants will have no clear sense of identity, ancestry or tradition, Europe could now be easily controlled by his chosen elite.

After Praktischer Idealismus was published in 1925, Kalergi received help from his friend Baron Louis de Rothschild who put him in touch with wealthy German-Jewish banker, Max Warburg. Warburg offered to fund Kalergi’s movement by supporting him financially for 3 years and by giving him 60,000 gold marks (a considerable amount of money back then).

 

Let’s take a look at how Kalergi’s ideas have influenced European politics over the last century…

 

The Paneuropean Union

“The responsibility for the lives of future generations includes the responsibility of mankind and the state for its creation.”

In 1923, Kalergi published a book titled Pan-Europa. The book, which formulated the vision of a politically, economically and militarily-united Europe, lead to the formation of the Paneuropean Union (also referred to as the Paneuropean Movement or the Pan-Europa Movement), which, as mentioned above, was funded with the support of Max Warburg. Each copy of Kalergi’s Pan-Europa book contained a membership form which invited the reader to join the Paneuropean Union.

As a side note, you may be interested to know that Max Warburg’s brother, Paul Warburg, had a brother-in-law called Jacob Schiff. Schiff was a Jewish-American banker who donated $20 million to the Bolshevik Revolution; making him one of the principal financiers of Leon Trotsky’s 1917 return passage to Russia. That’s right! The guys behind the funding of Kalergi’s European integration plans were also funding communism at the same time.

Additionally, you may also have heard the name James Warburg before (Paul Warburg’s son). James Warburg made some shocking, pro-globalist comments in the 1950s which drew him major attention. During an appearance before the United States Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, he said:

“We shall have world government, whether or not we like it. The question is only whether world government will be achieved by consent or by conquest.”

 

Bear the above few paragraphs in mind when you’re considering the kind of people who backed Kalergi’s plans.

Kalergi was the Paneuropean Union’s President up until his death in 1972. Following Kalergi’s death, Dr Otto von Habsburg (the last Crown Prince of Austria-Hungary) took over as President and remained in the position until 2004. The current President of the Paneuropean Union is French lawyer and politician; Alain Terrenoire.

Dr Otto von Habsburg was a firm opponent of Adolf Hitler’s Germany. During World War 2, he smuggled a number of Jews to their safety in the United States. As an academic, he was an Honorary Fellow and an Honorary Doctor of the University of Jerusalem, Israel. He was also a recipient of the International Humanitarian Award of the Jewish “Anti-Defamation League”.

The Paneuropean Union describes itself as “faithfully adherent as a supra-national movement to the political ideas and ideals of its founder, Richard Coudenhove-Kalergi”. It follows four main principles, which are: liberalism, Christianity, social responsibility and pro-Europeanism. Despite considering themselves pro-Christianity, however, the movement also “respects the contributions of Judaism and Islam” for they “inseparably share” their “mental and cultural development”.

Many prominent Jewish intellectuals and public figures have been long-time supporters of the Paneuropean Union. These include: Albert Einstein, Bronisław Huberman, Stefan Zweig, Sigmund Freud, Arthur Schnitzler, Bruno Kreisky, André Léon Blum and Franz Werfel.

The Paneuropean Union is committed to “European patriotism” rather than national patriotism. It believes this to be the “crowning achievement of the national identities of all Europeans.” This is an ironic statement, perhaps, when we consider Kalergi’s desire to water down national identities and replace them with a single, mixed-race, European identity.

The Paneuropean Union was prohibited by Nazi Germany between 1933 and the end of the Second World War. Hitler had a firm loathing for Kalergi and his movement. He often belittled Kalergi, calling him a “bastard” and a “rootless, cosmopolitan, and elitist half-breed”. He also considered Kalergi’s movement to be under the control of freemasonry. Hitler’s rise to the Chancellor of Germany in 1933, and the rise of National Socialism, put an end to Kalergi’s plans for the time being. His plans were halted until the end of the Second World War.

In 1945, as the Allies were about to “liberate” Germany, Winston Churchill and Franklin D. Roosevelt (who both backed Kalergi’s ideas for a unified Europe) met with Joseph Stalin at The Yalta Conference in the Soviet Union, and the three of them discussed Europe’s post-war reorganisation.

In 1946, Winston Churchill addressed an audience in Zurich:

“We must build a kind of United States of Europe. […] Much work has been done upon this task by the exertions of the Pan-European Union which owes so much to Count Coudenhove-Kalergi… The structure of the United States of Europe, if well and truly built, will be such as to make the material strength of a single state less important. Small nations will count as much as large ones and gain their honour by their contribution to the common cause.”

“The first step is to form a Council of Europe.”

 

Great Replacement

‘Raising a flag over the Reichstag’, a historic World War 2 photograph, was taken during the Battle of Berlin on 2nd May 1945. The flag of the Soviet Union is raised above the Reichstag building. With the help of the Allies, communism has won and National Socialism has been defeated. Kalergi’s plans are now able to regain momentum across Europe.

 

Great Replacement

British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, 32nd President of the United States, Franklin D. Roosevelt and General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, Joseph Stalin, meet at The Yalta Conference on 4th – 11th February 1945 to discuss the reorganisation of Europe.

 

The Charlemagne Prize

Before I move on to discuss Kalergi’s influence on the European Union, I’d like to take a moment to discuss the Charlemagne Prize.

Times were hard for Europe following the end of World War 2. Europe was still divided, and the Cold War which materialised between the Eastern Bloc and the Western Bloc in 1947 hampered Europe’s chances for peace and collaboration. These conditions created the declaration of the Charlemagne Prize Society in March, 1950. A yearly prize would be awarded to reward “outstanding work toward European unity or cooperation between its states.”

In 1950, Kalergi was the first recipient of the Charlemagne Prize. Other notable recipients include: Konrad Adenauer, Joseph Bech, Winston Churchill, Alcide De Gasperi, Walter Hallstein, Jean Monnet, Robert Schuman and Paul-Henri Spaak (who were, coincidentally, eight of the eleven founding fathers of the European Union) and in more recent years: Tony Blair, Jean-Claude Juncker, Donald Tusk, Angela Merkel and Martin Schulz.

 

The Formation of the European Union

“United in Diversity”

Although no textbook mentions Kalergi as being the founding figure behind the European Union, his ideas are certainly the guiding principles of the EU as we know it.

Thanks to the support of Winston Churchill, B’nai B’rith (a Jewish Masonic Lodge) and a number of major newspapers including the New York Times, Kalergi once again managed to gain momentum for his plans to create a “United States of Europe”.

Within just a decade following on from the end of World War 2, Kalergi’s initiative to establish a central European government had gained huge international support and funding. Between then and the present year, a number of organisations and movements have been formed which, together, have supported the establishment of the European Union as we now know it. Kalergi’s ideas of European integration no doubt played a hugely important role in shaping European politics to how we know them today.

 

The Great Replacement, Natural or Planned?

Richard von Coudenhove-Kalergi advocated for the genocide of White Europeans by promoting mass immigration and miscegenation. Mass immigration and the promotion of miscegenation is, as you will see in our series conclusion, certainly something that is being forced upon us in Europe today.

Those in charge certainly want us to believe that The Great Replacement is a natural phenomenon, and just something which is the result of wars, and improved communication and travel between nations across the world. Kalergi’s plans, as we have demonstrated above, were not only taken seriously by world leaders and financial backers throughout the 20th century, but they were promoted and funded by them with significant effort as well.

Should we believe that The Great Replacement is a natural occurrence, or is it possible that it was planned all along?

Whether you believe the first option or the second, Kalergi’s plans certainly seem to be fully realised across Europe today. Every year, miscegenation produces thousands of mixed race citizens (or “sons of Kalergi”) across our continent. Meanwhile, our politicians, media and educators sell us false information about humanitarian issues and tolerance and diversity. Our proud, White history is rewritten in front of our eyes with the aim of making us believe that Europe was always a home to millions of migrants from the Third World, when in fact, this couldn’t be further from the truth. We’re taught that it is wrong to love and support your own race and to be proud of your identity (but only if you’re White!) and any attempts by us to speak out about unvetted immigration or culture clashes is silenced by new hate speech laws which struggle to even define what hate speech actually is.

It is important, in these times, to fully expose the lies which we are fed from above, and to always be confident in speaking out about the very real issues which we face today. The other option, if you can call it an option, is to be timid, and to do nothing, and be liable in the replacement of our people.

  • Replacement Migration at the United Nations
  • Replacement Migration at the European Union
  • An overview of the ethnic make-up of Europe today, by country
  • Anti-White Cultural Marxism in politics, the media and education
