How do I emigrate?
I can’t seem to find a press source for this. It’s found on anti-Mullah:
I’m not sure if this is real, or is the repetition of an old rumor.
Hoaxslayer denies it. But who knows if that is correct?
In any case, I think this needs further backing before giving it too much weight.
Yeah its a terrible posting. No paragraph breaks. No sources.
Dang that speech should get her a Nobel Prize.
Do you have a source for that?
This has been going around for approximately a year that I know of. Snopes sez it’s false. Snopes has been known to lie if it in any way helped their pet raghead, who currently holds the title of POTUS. So we are left up in the air for now. Best source to determine its veracity would be a newspaper in Australia, perhaps.
I recall seeing this bit in an email a long time ago, but it was attributed to a different Australian PM.
I call bull (although I do love the tone of it).
This one was not fake!
AP, 17 October 2010
BERLIN Chancellor Angela Merkel’s declaration that Germany’s attempts to build a multicultural society had “utterly failed” is feeding a growing debate over how to deal with the millions of foreigners who call the country home.
Merkel told a meeting of young members of her conservative Christian Democratic Union that while immigrants are welcome in Germany, they must learn the language and accept the country’s cultural norms sounding a note heard increasingly across Europe as it battles an economic slump and worries about homegrown terrorism.
“This multicultural approach, saying that we simply live side by side and live happily with each other has failed. Utterly failed,” Merkel said.
Merkel’s comments were met with applause by the more conservative members of her party, but some Germans in cosmopolitan Berlin argued Sunday she was out of touch with the country’s daily life.
Based on what I know about this woman (which isn’t a whole lot) I can’t imagine her saying this. Isn’t she a bit of a Labour party lefty?
This multicultural approach, saying that we simply live side by side and live happily with each other has failed. Utterly failed, Merkel said.
Madame Merkel really has her head screwed on straight. I sure wish an American president would say that. Perhaps President Palin will. Matter of fact, I bet she will.
I think it was former Australian PM John Howard who made similar comments.
Good on yer, Sheila!
Nonsense. Communist Julia Gillard would never criticize Muslims.
I wish we had an American president.
Julia Gillard is a lifetime cloth cap communist. Like all of them, she got to be Prime Mnister by pretending to be something else.
There is no way she would ever say those things.
I just made an online inquiry to The National Library of Australia. If they reply and give me an answer of some kind I will share it.
Now that I have scrolled down and seen some of the comments, I think I made my inquiry to The National Library of Australia in vain.......unless they set me straight and inform me that the remarks were made, but by Howard instead of Gillard.
Just did a quick search. Seems like both Howard and former Aussie Treasurer Costello who made GREAT comments:
Posting this link for general reference and a jump-off point for anyone interested in further researching it. I do remember a hullabaloo at the time Howard made correct comments stating that Muslims should assimilate or leave (paraphrasing).
