Back in the cold month of February 2013, there was a lot of backslapping on city council as Toronto proudly declared itself to be Canada’s first Sanctuary City.
The vote was 37-3, so it wasn’t even close and therefore impossible to simply blame it on the lefties, the council’s dominant tribe.
Ever since the massive arrival of Muslims to the Western hemisphere, our Western culture and world have been forever altered, thanks to the ceaseless attempts of the left to force a failing Utopian Multiculturalism paradise down the throats of its unsuspecting citizens. Multiculturalism in Europe is dead in the water, as every recent election has shown. Even the politicians are admitting it now. Why are they still insisting that we must coexist and keep importing more Muslims who will never assimilate?
Let me be clear: multiculturalism spells the demise of our Western culture. Is that what we want?
Sky’s political correspondent Lewis Goodall — the man behind the false insertion of the word “white” into Enoch Powell’s infamous Birmingham Speech — has revealed the news organisation found Britons as well as ethnic minorities think Powell was not a racist. Goodall, however, blames this on the late-MP’s “clever verbal contortions”.
Supporters argue that multiculturalism assists in the integration of immigrants, removing barriers to their participation in the host country’s life and making them feel more welcome, leading to a stronger sense of belonging and pride.
Critics argue that it promotes ethnic centers, or ghettoization and balkanization, and encourages members of ethnic groups to look inward, and emphasize differences between them and their host country rather than shared rights or identities.
Supporters of multiculturalism maintain that there is little evidence in Canada of the deep social segregation experienced in parts of Europe. However, the number of visible minority neighbourhoods in Canada’s three largest cities have apparently increased from 6 in 1981 to 254 in 2001.
“Multiculturalism and human-rightism promote the notion that migration is a human right, and that the right to migrate leads to further rights and entitlements including social welfare hand-outs for migrants.” — Former Czech President Václav Klaus and economist Jiří Weigl, writing in their book, Europe All Inclusive.
Australia’s historically high level of immigration has been blamed for making housing ridiculously unaffordable.
With Sydney’s median house price hovering above $1.1 million, a major report fears Australia will become a ‘less equal society’ if the nation continues to accept more than 200,000 immigrants a year.
The Grattan Institute think tank cites high immigration and foreign investment as key reasons why Australia has some of the world’s least affordable housing.
Sounds familiar doesn’t it? Create a contrived shortage in housing, a contrived surplus of labour which depresses wages. What else is mass immigration for but to keep the proles down? Divide and conquer is among the oldest of games.
