I can find no irony in this.
I agree, SWAMPSNIPER.

I know. Remember the good old days of the “melting pot”?
I agree with you about the threat of Islamic cultures, but the “melting pot” was early 20th century liberal ideology in and of itself. Besides, if we truly were a “melting pot,” there would be no black people left in this country (ie minority groups would have been fully absorbed into the population).
True, clemenza. (although President Obama does come to mind. ;^D)
Perhaps what we should be striving for is a ‘melding pot’.
