Dutch foreign minister says multicultural societies breed violence, and he’s not apologizing

Last month, the Dutch prime minister set the Internet on fire when he deigned to clean up his own spilled coffee.

Now, the country’s foreign minister is drawing a very different kind of attention.

Dutch Foreign Minister Stef Blok is under fire for comments at a recent gathering of Dutch employees of international organizations at The Hague. During his talk, Blok asserted that diversity breeds conflict.

“Give me an example of a multiethnic, multicultural society, where the Indigenous population still live . . . where they live in a peaceful, societal union,” Blok said, according to Reuters. “I don’t know of any.”
