Skip to comments.Multiculturalism, R.I.P.
Posted on 12/14/2010 3:52:32 PM PST by Delacon
Throughout my adult life governments around the Western world have been propagating the gospel of multiculturalism, which tells us that immigrants, from whatever part of the world and whatever way of life, are a welcome part of our "multicultural" society. Differences of language, religion, custom, and attachment don't matter, they have reassured us, since all can form part of the colorful tapestry of the modern state. Anybody who publicly disagreed with that claim invited the attentions of the thought police, always ready with the charge of racism, and never so scrupulous as to think it a sin to destroy the career of someone, provided he was white, indigenous, and male. To be quite honest, living through this period of organized mendacity has been one of the least agreeable ordeals that we conservatives have had to undergo. Keeping your head down is bad enough; but filling your head with official lies means sacrificing thought as well as freedom.
But now, quite suddenly, the oppression has ceased. Even Angelika Merkel, chancellor of a country whose reputation for political correctness is more carefully nurtured than any other cultural asset, has just told us that multiculturalism is dead -- quite dead. President Sarkozy has for some time been saying the same, while Prospect, Britain's leading left-wing intellectual monthly, currently carries the caption "re-thinking race: has multiculturalism had its day?" This caption is in many ways the most revealing of the current attempts to put multiculti at a distance. For it manages simultaneously to deny and to affirm the original message, which is that to discriminate among cultures is to discriminate on grounds of race -- in other words, to be a racist. This is perhaps the most pernicious of the lies that we have been required to swallow during these years of oppression, since

Hallelujah (sp?)! I am so tired of trying to be considerate to people who are abusive.
Multi-racial is one thing, multicultural is something else. I only want ONE culture in this country: American.
I guess most people have noticed that the only nations which simply must be multicultural, or they are just horrible racists are: The USA, Europe, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
How’s multiculturalism coming along in China and India? The Arab nations? Asia? Plenty of people of all cultures moving into those area?
Scratch that - multiculturalism will be found only in Canada and the USA.
Repeat after me!
All Cultures are Equal!!! All Cultures are Equal!!! All Cultures are Equal!!!
2050 America = 3rd world Venezuela-like, going nowhere.
2050 Homogenous Japan = Bad a$$ little country building moon-bases and other exciting technologies. Safe streets.
I have said even way back in college days (late 80’s, early 90’s) that I was in no way a racist...but was most definitely a culturist.

Yeah, have you seen the birth rate in Japan recently?
It will probably get worse before it gets better.
From around ten years ago, some interesting comments and predictions:
Fred articles on race and potential future civil war:
Yep, it’s terribly low, but 50 years from now, there will still be a Japan, populated by Japanese. Can’t say the same for America, Europe or Australia.
Demographic changes which are already in place will change the face of America.
Americans of primarily European, or white, origin, will be a minority in this country in 30 or 40 years.
Slightly more than 50% of all kindergartners in school today are members of some minority group.
America as we know it can survive if we are multi-ethnic in background, but not multi-cultural. There’s a big difference. If all of these immigrants (legal and otherwise) and their children assimilate, we will survive.
On the other hand, if the multiplicity of groups do not assimilate, a multi-cultural America will have major problems.
It’s an open question which of the above will happen.
Considering how many of our big cities and even their suburbs have “gone ghetto”, we may not recognize big portions of this country in the future.
Yeah, but you’re supposed to welcome, even cheer for this. s/
To protest it means you’re racist in the minds of liberals. But they stand to lose the most as LaRaza types won’t share power with white liberals.
Multi-Culti may be on the wane in Germany but the movement hasn’t hit the USA yet.
Two of my personal Hope & Change items:
1- Hope to see Obama out of the White House
2 - Hope to see (and help bring about) the death of multiculturalism
Multiculturalism died in this country when “people used machines their culture couldn’t invent to destroy buildings their culture could never build”.
Could you repeat that for me in larger font? I don’t think I got it.
