Great-Replaced: Half of Newborns in Belgium Have Foreign-Origin Mothers

First bar: births in 2020 by origin of the mother. Second bar: women of childbearing age by origin. Orange: native Belgians; blue: Belgian citizens of foreign origin; grey: foreigners.

The Great Replacement is a “discredited conspiracy theory,” but it also an empirical reality, wherever governments and agencies deem fit to publish the relevant figures.

France has long been loathe to publish such statistics, but neighboring Belgium — which has a similar history of recent immigration — is not so circumspect. The Belgian Federal Bureau for Planning recently published a highly interesting fact sheet on the national origin of mothers in Belgium.

The figures for 2020 show that Belgium now has a historically-low total fertility rate of 1.58 per woman. Of these, barely half of births (52.3%) are to native Belgian mothers. The rest are more-or-less evenly split between mothers who are Belgian citizens of foreign origin and foreign mothers.

Fertility rates differ drastically by origin, with native Belgian woman at a mere 1.38 and foreign women at 2.05 (48.5% higher).

Belgian citizens of foreign origin have a fertility rate of 1.58, suggesting a convergence of birth rates over time. Admittedly, interpretation is difficult as it is unclear what is included in this category. What proportion of these are Italian-origin Belgians (significant waves came from 1945 onward, now numbering around 450,000)? What proportion are Arabs or Congolese with Belgian passports? We don’t know.

Proportion by origin and age of women of child-bearing age, (orange: native Belgians, blue: Belgian citizens of foreign origin, grey: foreigners).

The replacement of the Belgian population will only ratchet up over time. Significantly, among 15-year-old girls, foreign-origin Belgian citizens and foreigners outnumber native Belgians more than two-to-one!

One struggles to find any previous examples in European history of population substitution on this scale. Probably one has to go all the way back to the Indo-European conquests circa 5000–4000 years ago.

The Belgian statistics are frustratingly unclear concerning the national origin of mothers in Belgium. “Citizens of foreign-origin” and “foreigners” indiscriminately include southern Europeans, eastern Europeans, Middle-Eastern Muslims, and Africans. There has been substantial European immigration to Belgium from Italy, Romania, and elsewhere.

It seems highly probable that European-origin mothers will have lower fertility rates than Africans and Muslims, though conceivably the latter converge somewhat in fertility with the natives over time.

Figures from the Belgian Statistics Agency revealed that in 2021 the proportion of native Belgians had fallen to a mere 67.3% of the population (from 74.3% in 2011 and 81.8% in 2001). The collapse of native Belgians is real, drastic, and ongoing.

Among Belgian citizens of foreign origin and foreigners, 48.3% are from neighboring or other EU countries and 51.7% from non-EU countries (mostly from the Maghreb, Turkey, and Black Africa). The proportion from non-EU countries has increased, being 38.4% in 2001 and 47.6% in 2011.

Thus, foreign-origin people in Belgium make up one third of the population, about evenly split between Europeans and non-Europeans. I suspect non-Europeans make up about a third of births in Belgium, similar to France.

Whatever one makes of all this, the Belgian population is being irreversibly transformed beyond recognition within a single lifetime.

The consequences for the native population have often been dire. In France, recent figures show that foreigners (not including citizens of foreign origin) make up 7.6% of the population but are two to four times more likely to commit crimes such as theft, sexual assault, and murder:

This does not even factor in French and Belgian citizens of African or Muslim origin. During a trial of the French-Jewish pundit Éric Zemmour for “hate speech,” the Socialist politician Jean-Pierre Chevènement came to Zemmour’s defense. He testified that as interior minister he received a daily list of crimes in France and most of the criminals had African or Muslim last names.[1] Note that Chevènement was Minister of the Interior from 1997–2000! The situation is no doubt even more stark today.

Beyond the decline in social capital and well-being, there are also plenty of signs the population change is leading to a collapse in any common values within the society. A recent poll by the respected agency IFOP found that 65% of young Muslim high-schoolers in France considered that “the norms and rules” of Islam “are more important than the laws of the Republic.”

The right is often faulted for being alarmist on immigration. Part of the reason for this is that the consequences of these trends take time to become apparent but also have tremendous momentum. The most extraordinary political courage will be necessary to hold back the tide, let alone roll it back. In any case, wholly preventable ethno-religious conflicts among Europeans, Blacks, and Muslims will continue to be facts of life in Western Europe for the foreseeable future. There is every likelihood these problems will worsen and, if nothing is done, will indeed become overwhelming.

    As a mechanical process engineer, I have always had an extensive and deep interest in processes, cause-effect flow, dynamics, and constituents. The end product or result of a positive or negative outcome or situation has antecedents and causes, and influences.

    There are several ways and methods to analyze the sum. One is to just accept that an item failed and replace it. In the milieu of this article, that is not relevant, unless the State of Belgium were to at least restrict new immigration to sturdy, prolific Whites or other Indo-Europeans, e.g., South African Afrikaners. Or, change citizenship laws that institute procedures for forfeiture of citizenship and banishment from the country. And of course there is the – *gasp*- option of declaring Belgium an ethnic state of its original inhabitants, rewriting laws that mandate women’s primary role as mothers and nurturers. As a corollary no woman would be allowed employment outside the home until she birthed 3 children. And after that, stipulations and restrictions would center on the primary interests of the children. These are remedies and cures. Call them repairs or overhauls. Time and tense are present and future.

    My belief that Western Man has had virtual staged lobotomies since the time of Jesus is not novel. Nietzsche, Wagner, and other thinkers have remarked on W.M.’s narrow cognitive and evaluative focus of his cognitive abilities.

    Most thinkers, or people who make a weak attempt, will want to understand the precedent occurrences, values, ideas/ideals commonly held, their origin, their adoption/adaption that allowed or compelled such a state of being or existence of the present.

    My university professor once said in class that demographics is the most important element, and the most powerful tool, to determine a country’s, a nation’s, a civilisation’s progress, change, decline and demise. The older I get the more I believe he was deeply correct. Take China for example with its over 1 billion people. And take Europe’s incapacity to maintain its identity through reproduction. Europe will be un recognizable in 50 year span. Western Feminists who fall in love with Moslems and have multiple children won’t remain feminists for very long. They are in for a rude awakening. I am happy I won’t be alive to see this because I would hurt me too much.

    I’ll never forget my father taking me to New York City, in 1960, just to experience exactly what we’re discussing here. We went to the top of the Empire State Building, at lunch at an automat, rode the subway, and discussed the place and how it got that way. John Rocker had the same experience and the impression I’m left-with after all these years:

      Herewith a brief follow-up from a native New Yorker.

      In 1960, the city was well on its way to becoming the sewer it is today, but there were doubtless a great many wholesome out-of-towners back then who couldn’t imagine a place becoming more Gomorrah-like. Sad to say, they were optimists.

      Nevertheless, I am not alone in thinking that in 1960 the automats were still pretty darn good, even though by then the Horn and Hardart company, their creator and owner, kept them going largely for the tourist trade.

      Up till about that time, going to an automat with my mother, father, or big brother was always a treat—especially since I was a kid who saw no purpose in the existence of waiters. Besides, the mechanics of the place had an odd romance all their own. It was fascinating to see what seemed a disembodied hand open the back of an automated compartment and place a plate holding a tuna salad sandwich or a piece of cherry pie in public view. (I don’t deny that the perspective of the folks working in the hot kitchen must have been quite unlike mine.) Also worth noting is that the desserts were good—at least by teenager standards—and as I discovered by 1961 or 1962, the coffee was excellent and cheap.

      In short, the automats of sixty years ago were a hands-down winner over today’s Starbucks, with their burnt, overpriced coffee, their barely edible food, their woke staff, and their largely unbearable clientele.

      Merry Christmas!

    The horror, the horror, the horror. And we go without a murmur into the darkness.

    I always believed, for a long time, anyway, that something instinctive would eventually kick in, that the melanin-deficient would at some time and in some manner push back against this. Surely, I thought, there will be graffiti, or people who would begin on occasion to yell, “Go HOME!” Then, one day, in an indoor shopping mall, I was sitting and watching the ebb and flow of the crowds, noticing that only one in thirty or forty shoppers was white, and that most of the whites were elderly shufflers. In the store windows there were embroidered hijabs, and, everywhere, foreign languages and cheap, imported plastic merchandise. I studied the whites, most of all, examining their faces in their interactions. They were serene, disinterested, unalarmed by the alien hordes and messaging all around them. Most of all, they were quietly irrelevant, and that would appear to be our fast-approaching fate.

    All extinctions are permanent. Where are your spines, you fools?

    For many decades, the African National Congress functioned as a resistance group, working to dismantle Apartheid in South Africa and to bring about black majority rule. It was, in effect, however, also a provisional government for black South Africa, until a de facto black government could achieve power and be seated. It occurs to me that we need something similar in the U.S. and other Western nations, a form of provisional government until we have the power to seat one that actually represents our interests.

    Time is running short.

    In the late 1940s and early 1950s the Americans ordered the UK Gov. to admit Windians so Windians would not go to the USA, according to a British Gov. Minister.
    A student told me that he heard his father, who was a diplomat, tell a friend that the Americans ordered the London and Dublin governments to create the Irish troubles.
    Most bombs in N Ireland were detonated by the British Army. A Major was going to expose this on Television but 3 days before the programme he was cleaning his windows and unfortunately he fell to his death. The Captain who assisted him lived in obscurity for a time after this and was last seen leaving for oblivion.
    I believe the troubles were created to fill the media and leave no space for immigration until it was too late.
    The USA is not a friend of Europe, or anybody else, come to that.
    The USA will never allow Europe to unite and save the White man, in my opinion.

    Our kinsmen’s silence is, alas, always interpreted as consent. Regarding the thought about people yelling “Go HOME!” or the lack thereof, I have often wondered what the legal implications would be of expressing such a sentiment in public. Would it fall under the protections of free speech, or would it be a hate crime or disorderly conduct, punishable by law? Once, passing a pajamas-clad invader urinating on a tree in a park, I almost yelled the words, but then hesitated. Does anyone know the answer to this question?

A recent poll by the respected agency IFOP found that 65% of young Muslim high-schoolers in France considered that “the norms and rules” of Islam “are more important than the laws of the Republic.” **

    Poll companies tend to go along with the Jewish program. For example, until 2007, IFOP was headed by Laurence Parisot, who wrote a book against Marine Le Pen. How can you trust people like that ? What makes Black and Arab immigrants dangerous isn’t Islam but their violent streak. The focus on Islam is a Jewish thing, with the idea that non-Whites become just like us when they take off their Islamic scarves and embrace “the laws of the Republic”.

    After the 9/11 attacks, there was a deluge of neocon propaganda about how Islam was about to take over Europe. In fact, Europe has been taken over by the Jews. I think most Arab immigrants tend to move away from religion. I’d like to see a poll about that.

    “The laws of the Republic” is an expression that dates back to the French revolution, after they beheaded the king, but it sounds very Jewish, just like “the values of the Republic”. It’s used to intimidate White people into agreeing that being French has nothing to do with French ancestry.

    I think the former minister J.P. Chevènement who came to Zemmour’s defense is probably Jewish too. Officially, he is not, but he was the founder of the political party “Mouvement Républicain et Citoyen”, where “citoyen” means “citizen”, another word from the French revolution. That word is a noun, but is used as an adjective by the Jews. Here again, it means that what matters is civic status, not ancestry. As a minister of the interior, Chevènement played a role in importing lots of non-Whites and turning them into French citizens.

    According to Robert Putnam (Bowling alone), Americans “have become increasingly disconnected from family, friends and neighbors”. It may be due to changes in “work, family structure, age, suburban life, television, computers, women’s roles”. And it’s been made much worse by the imposed racial diversity.

    It’s the same in every Western country. But in my opinion, the worst contributing factor to the collapse of White society is Jewish influence. We can try to stay away from Blacks and Arabs. We don’t have to listen to the Black rappers on Jewish-owned radio stations. But no one can escape the devastating Jewish influence in every area of our lives. Besides, what prevents us from stopping the non-White invasion and keeping away from non-Whites is Jewish power. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to suffer at all from the invasion.

      It would certainly take what Dr. Johnson called a poring man to find a Fleming who’d rather be a Belgian than a Dutchman. Although fewer of the Walloons feel the same about being French, my impression is that those that do prefer reverting constitute a majority. Perhaps someone will correct me if I’ve been misinformed.

      One of my three closest friends was a Dutchman (now deceased). He used to say, very drily, that the Congress of Vienna created Belgium to protect Dutch Catholics from Dutch Protestants, despite the oft-stated preference of the Catholics to remain with their Protestant friends and kin. My friend concluded his remarks by saying that though the motives of the French were always indecipherable, Talleyrand must have seen something in the creation of Belgium that worked to his profit.

    Everyone on this group, or just about everyone (if you bypass infiltration), understands demographics is everything. Change the demographics and the situation never returns. Even little children know this. As a young man I enjoyed visiting friends in London. Overtime, trips to that once-Anglo country were canceled.

    As a young man in Detroit I saw what happened to that city. My great friend “Wilmont Robinson” wrote about this in his monthly. It’s not a puzzle. BTW, most Londoners adjusted to the alteration.

    Fast forward, upon retirement (I got what was called a golden handshake). A new iron hoss was obtained. Once a year, on various iron horses -Gold Wings were the best- I’d leave the West coast and ride to the Pacific Ocean. Often one would stop in Montana.

    For over a decade three or four weeks would be spent exploring. One witnessed, in person, the most heartbreaking of scenes that are possible for any man who loves his people to comprehend. Entire once-peaceful metropolitan communities had changed. Of course, it’s an ongoing evolution.

    There are two scenarios, amongst many, that the future holds. Two that appear to be most prevalent for success. America’s best hope is that it will morph eventually into some sort of federation. Eventually the separate regions will go their own way. That will pacify a significant majority.

    Of course, the second option is amalgamation due to masses growing up together and being accustom to each other. This is quite prevalent in California. Of course, the sailing will be turbulent due to immense brainwashing and anti-majority propaganda.

    With a large segment of the population now employed in government, state and city bureaucratic entities, the elderly will not desire giving up their pensions. That will have to figure into the equation.

    Those who do not hate, but simply wish to retain who they are and have their progeny be of European heritage will find they might not have a choice. Already it’s very difficult to find private institutions that are mostly consisting of the majority. When such institutions are found there is a factor pertaining to the mentality of the hierarchy. For example, I in rolled a relative in such a school. The principal was changed. On her own initiative she brought in a massive amount of diversityites.

    Discipline immediately became a problem. That being noticed, 20 to 30% of the parents removed their children. I was able to homeschool for a year until health interfered.

    The majority of parents comprehend that Home Schooling is only a theory. The fact is, unless folks have jobs as I did, the mother must be employed if the bills are to be paid… There are those who would argue that point. However, in the world of reality, a man must have a special wife to engage in the protection of progeny. The most important factor, or one of the most, is the female issue. You see, in the near future marriage will go the way of the Whooping Crane. Already men fear trusting in the environment where recreational sex has become the norm.

      In particular , the extant USA White race will not survive , except perhaps for an insignificant fortuitous remnant ,
      if it is unable to establish a WN ethnostate for itself ;
      or if it unable to reclaim sovereignty over the USA
      ( not a serious prospect at this time nor the foreseeable future ) . In other words , USA Whites will surely be genocided into virtual extinction if they are incapable of changing their current demographic status quo by establishing a WN ethnostate hegemonic demographic that would prevent a return to their current status of a race defeated by their chosenhite jewmasterss .

      Furthermore , Whites need to realize
      the remaining non-White world could not care less about any egregious White demographics and that a WN ethnostate could not survive very long in isolation .

      Therefore , the best chance for an indefinitely viable WN ethnostate is for Whites to acknowledge the only practical hope for humanity to thrive-n-survive beyond any
      TOTAL Extinction Event is by voluntary adherence to
      {{{ The PRIME DIRECTIVE }}}
      which is absolutely different from and not about
      “Star Trek General Order 1”.

      Have no doubt , if a human culture is sufficiently adhering to
      {{{ The PRIME DIRECTIVE }}} then the demographics of it would necessarily have to be properly managed for either positive , zero , or negative population growth depending on pertinent circumstances . If the demographics are not properly managed with respect to available life-sustaining resources and other important factors , then that culture will also eventually and absolutely end up in the ash heap of a COSMIC DOOM .

      Please note ___
