Germany: Should Migrants Integrate?

A government task force created to promote the integration of migrants into German society has published a list of the core features of German culture.

The list studiously omits politically incorrect terms such as “patriotism” and “leading culture” (Leitkultur), and effectively reduces German traditions and values to the lowest common denominator. The task force, in fact, implicitly establishes multiculturalism as the most complete expression of German culture.

The so-called Cultural Integration Initiative (Initiative kulturelle Integration) was created by the German government in December 2016 to promote “social cohesion” after Chancellor Angela Merkel opened German borders to more than a million migrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

    Yes they can be re-integrated back to where they came from.

    The whole of the West is past the point of being able to integrate any ethnicity.

    Merkel is a KGB mole….her mission was to destabilize Europe and the Russkis got lucky…..there are probably a score more of her ilk in the upper levels of the German political power elite.

    Immigrants assimilate, invaders don’t. That’s how you can tell the difference.

  • JoKeR

    I wonder if their attitude is the same as the British elite?

    “Should” comes after “would”, but it’s too late for that question.

  • deplorabledave

    No, they should be forced to migrate back whence they came.

    How long will it be before “kulturkampf” reenters the German vocabulary?

    • The Germans are showing signs of reaching peak guilt complex, I expect the next generation will not settle for more of the same.

    There will be blood before this is over, in a big way. In the seventeenth century there were major wars all over Europe, mainly as a result of the protestant reformation. This will be the same, but you can now throw in the racial divide as will to make it even bloodier.

  • If this question has to be asked, one is already under water.
