Multiculturalism is Europe’s new faith

Never mind the terrorists, chaps, London will just keep calm and carry on. We’ll put the kettle on or defy them by going out and getting pissed, because life will just continue as normal. That’s the fitting response to terrorism, and it won’t affect our lives.

Except it will. It will affect your life when you’re queuing endlessly to be searched by security in every public building. When you pass by bollards and barriers put in place to stop mass vehicular homicide. The nervousness you’ll feel whenever you’re on the Tube or when your child gets on public transport in the morning. As the attacks increase, you’ll hear more and more anecdotal stories about acquaintances or Facebook friends or even actual pals caught up in these events. (The wife and seven-year-old daughter of a good friend of mine were in the carriage at Parsons Green, and caught up in the crush.) And they will increase – there is very little chance of this problem going away.

  • Political multiculturalism IS a failure. If it is not, then why haven’t its cheerleaders converted to X religion or eat with their hands?

      What is non-political multiculturalism? Frankly, to allow numerous Muslims into a western society – regardless of how they got there, legally or not – is a political fact. Please elaborate, OK.

      • My apologies for my opacity.

        Ethnic multiculturalism or the co-existence of various ethnic groups does work. That is the New World. I would not say that everything is perfect all the time but the fact that people live together and consider themselves citizens of X regardless of castes or bloodlines is far more egalitarian than most other systems.

        Political multiculturalism that holds all cultures are equally good or valuable in the same measure is demonstrably false. To rely on this system is to plan for failure.

          I prefer the term “ethnic diversity” rather than multiculturalism since I believe the latter is so tainted by political correctness and/or official government policies in Canada, but your point is well taken.

          Ethnic diversity might be okay, despite problems here and there, but a diverse society WITH Muslims – even just 5% to 10% – demonstrably does not work.

          Look at M-103 and the special status Parliament appears to be giving Muslims over and above all other citizens in Canada. Why the special protection for this wretched vile totalitarian “religion”?

          • Because of political multiculturalism, the diversity we’ve become accustomed to is proving to be difficult. Had people insisted on ONE set of values, the Nazism (yes – NAZISM) that is M-103 would not exist.

            Hitler didn’t happen in a vacuum. People voted for him, as Canadians are content with M-103.

            I believe M-103 is the beginning of the end, although one might coherently argue that the election of UN loving Trudeau was the beginning of the end. I truly fear for the future of this country.

          • Consider where this censorship will lead. Soon, pointing out an MP’s bribery will be “phobic” somehow and punishable by prison.

    I’ve written this many times before, but as a white male born in Toronto back in the 60s and still living here, multiculturalism means for me, in my day to day life, having less and less in common with more and more people.

    Today’s example: did a little grocery shopping only to see a Somali woman covered head to toe in a black burka-like garment except her whole mouth, nose, and eyes were showing (the slut!!! *sarc*) while her little future Boko Haram terrorist children (three of them running around the aisles) were with her. WTF will I ever have in common with her or her children or her husband?

    I have little hope that cultimulturalism will be replaced by “an ounce of prevention” as Europe’s article of faith.
