The Great Replacement Is Going Mainstream

The concept of the Great Replacement was coined by Renaud Camus in his 2011 book of the same name, Le Grand Remplacement. Camus, a deeply intellectual and well-read novelist, started to formulate this idea in the 1990s when he noticed that the population of some old French villages had been almost completely replaced by largely Muslim immigrants. Although Renaud Camus is particularly concerned with what he sees as the Great Replacement of the French population by large-scale immigration, the concept of the Great Replacement has spread throughout the Western world.
