By downplaying social problems, multiculturalists help extremism to flourish

Ross Douthat’s 10 points about immigration is recommended reading for anyone sitting on the fence or who tends towards the open border position; even if you disagree, you’ll at least have an idea of what the opposition believe. Personally I agree with it all anyway and my opinions on the subject are as frozen in aspic as my musical tastes and haircut.

Not that many people are likely to change their minds, of course, this being a subject more of the heart than the head, on both sides of the debate. I’d go as far as to say it that immigration has become a sacred idea, and that many believe multiculturalism to be a moral good in itself, whatever the end result. This is why, uniquely among any subject discussed in the news, its downsides come with a caveat that ‘this subject will be used by right-wing extremists’. The outrageous behaviour of bankers, for example, is never reported alongside fears that the news will be ‘exploited by left-wing extremists’.

    Re: Your headline. Isn’t that exactly what multiculturalism is meant to do?

    • The western multi-cultis are nothing more than a bunch of arrogant, foolish, know-it-alls, too stupid to realize, they are promoting cultural suicide.

      We would all be better off it they just committed suicide.

    Suddenly a human flood that consists of hundreds of thousands of ignorant young male muslim migrants from lawless middle east regions areas known for their tribal cohesion and lack of individual initiative start pouring across international borders into European countries. Said countries, which are run by governments that are in turn controlled by some of the world’s most powerful elites, throw up their hands and piously declare they have no choice but to welcome these “guests” by rolling out the welcome mat while doing their best to suppress any media mention of their visitors quaint courtship customs re the local women, children, plus other assorted foibles.
    Questions never answered:
    Who ordered the flood? Who organized it?

    The elites must have something more specific in mind to occupy the time of the recent military age muslim arrivals besides ad hoc terrorizing of the local populace?

    Otherwise why bother letting them in?
