French President Nicolas Sarkozy recently said what many in his country have known all along – that multiculturalism is a total and utter failure. He is not the first European leader to go against Politically Correct “rules,” though. His criticism is part of a growing trend amongst European leaders as they realize that the ever increasing numbers of radical Muslims threaten their country’s cultural identity.
According to a blog posted on Hot Air, Sarkozy said in a television interview that multiculturalism was clearly a failure. He did not mince words and later said this in the interview:
“When you come to France, you accept to melt into a single community, which is the national community, and if you do not want to accept that, you cannot be welcome in France,” the right-wing president said.
“The French national community cannot accept a change in its lifestyle, equality between men and women… freedom for little girls to go to school,” he said.
“We have been too concerned about the identity of the person who was arriving and not enough about the identity of the country that was receiving him,” Sarkozy said in the TFI channel show.
Amen! Sarkozy is right. We have elected several politicians who are just as courageous – Lieutenant Colonel Allen West of Florida is one of those. They are almost always conservative Republicans. Why are the Democrats pretending this problem does not exist?
German Chancellor Angela Merkel was just as adamant when she said this about the negative effects of multiculturalism:
This approach has failed, totally,” she said, adding that immigrants should integrate and adopt Germany’s culture and values. “We feel tied to Christian values. Those who don’t accept them don’t have a place here,” said the chancellor.
The British also got into the act when British Prime Minister David Cameron said this about multiculturalism:
Under the doctrine of state multiculturalism, we have encouraged different cultures to live separate lives, apart from each other and apart from the mainstream. We’ve failed to provide a vision of society to which they feel they want to belong. We’ve even tolerated these segregated communities behaving in ways that run completely counter to our values.
The people were warning their politicians a long time ago about this, but they did not listen. It takes years of suffering on the part of the folks who do not want this until the government eggheads are convinced. But, hey, who ever said government eggheads were that bright?
Those same liberal politicians were embarrassed by a recent study. In the study, a Harvard political scientist found that diversity hurts civic life. Multicultural gurus have constantly force-fed us the line that our differences make us stronger. However, I think I should clue in the pie-in-the-sky intellectuals – differences in the Muslim world and the non-Muslim world can make us DEAD, especially if the radical element is introduced.
One professor was “shocked” by the results of the study. He was a professor – need I say more? He lives in Theory Land, not in the real world.
The study, done by liberals, really shocked them. Here is an excerpt of the story:
But a massive new study, based on detailed interviews of nearly 30,000 people across America, has concluded just the opposite. Harvard political scientist Robert Putnam — famous for “Bowling Alone,” his 2000 book on declining civic engagement — has found that the greater the diversity in a community, the fewer people vote and the less they volunteer, the less they give to charity and work on community projects. In the most diverse communities, neighbors trust one another about half as much as they do in the most homogeneous settings. The study, the largest ever on civic engagement in America, found that virtually all measures of civic health are lower in more diverse settings.
The people already knew this long ago – it is just the “intellectuals” who are lagging behind.
Maybe there is still time to save our countries from all the damage that they have done.
Until next time,
