Britain Launches War on Multiculturalism
Gatestone Institute ^ | February 24, 2012 | Soeren Kern

Posted on 03/26/2012 8:48:48 AM PDT by LucianOfSamasota

"We have even tolerated these segregated communities behaving in ways that run completely counter to our values. ... I believe a genuinely liberal country... believes in certain values and actively promotes them." -- David Cameron

The British government has unveiled a new "integration strategy" designed to "champion a united British identity."

The new policy will require immigrants seeking admission to live in the United Kingdom to learn English and adhere to "mainstream" British culture and values such as democracy and the rule of law.

The measures represent a continuation of recent efforts by the government to reverse decades of state-sponsored multicultural policies that have allowed Muslim immigrants to avoid integration and establish a parallel society in Britain.

Happened last month, but I thought it was interesting. Between this and the Falklands, don't be surprised if President Soetoro declares a UN war on UK (non-Congressional authority, of course).

If Cameron weren’t so in love with Obama, it might be a good time to move to Britain :).

Before Ann Coulter lost her minds she said something very brilliant about this:

"Diversity is an obstacle to be overcome, not a goal to be achieved"

Let’s hope that the Brits are not so far down the p.c. path that they won’t be able to turn this around. And if the douchebag in the White House complains, let’s hope they have the gumption to tell him to STFU.

Britain should be multicultural: English, Scottish, Welsh and Irish.

Moslims are not interested in permanently adopting any identity that is not compatible with Islam.

God bless Cameron. Pray that our Congress may see some light in his remarks, ‘cause it sure ain’t gonna’ be hussein.

Everyone is going to have to convert to Islam?

OR...

does Cameron think he can force Muzzies into integrating into a secular UK without having major, major problem on his hands?

Which is it, Cam?

One-way ticket to Saudi Arabia. They have enough money to take care of plenty of them.

“If Cameron weren’t so in love with Obama, it might be a good time to move to Britain :).”

It may never be a good time to move to britain in our lifetimes. They have some very frightening speech crime laws where 3rd parties not even covered by your comment can get you prosecuted, for one. The apparent anarcho-tyranny model of criminal justice is another.

The UK is the ideal western model of an orwellian state, in my opinion. It is a much more tranquil model that what is being built in the US, which I suspect is going to include some number of pogroms early on.

Last I heard, and it was a couple of years back, there were 2 million muzzies in Britain...probably double that now as they outbreed the locals (read it was 5 to 1 in Germany). Britain waited too long, as did France and Germany. From what I am reading I think the Nordic countries are catching on...but also waited a tad too long to draw a line in the sand. Used to be if a country was going to try and take you over they initiated war...now it seems they just envelop you with legal or illegal immigration and outbreed you.

I think the Brits are tired of Islam trying to tell them what to do, as are some other countries. I find it interesting that they can do this and we can’t see the writing on the wall.

Cameron’s values involve kicking the church, opening the immigration floodgates and bowing down to gays.

The biggest foreign crisis the US faces will be what to do when the UK and Europe begin expelling Muslims enmasse.

Will we support that policy, be neutral, or offer the US as an asylum (the nightmare scenario) for Muslims?

Stay tuned as the world falls apart.

As essential part of integration is, obviously, integration.

For this reason, well known “ghettos” of particular peoples need to be broken up, sliced into pieces with “internal walls” of different people forming a boundary between them.

For example, say there is a ghetto area. Gentrify a two or three area block right down the middle, then give preferences to outside businesses to both occupy them, but employ local people.

Have similar businesses “facing outward”, to reduce incentive to travel from one side of the “wall” to the other, then “interfere” with the connecting streets to make it even more difficult.

This divides that ghetto into two similar but disconnected ghettos, forcing both to deal with outsiders more than each other.

Such subdivisions can be made until the ghetto loses its racial identity.

Nice idea but I see nothing in the article on how such a policy could be enforced.

Once the immigrant is in the country how do police his entry in to mainstream British culture and how do you monitor his adherence to the rule of law in his personal life?

Besides these obvious questions there is the fundamental fact that it is a little late to start bucking up British culture. That horse left the barn a few decades ago. I think I fed my dog some of that horse from a can back in the seventies.

Multiculturalism is like shameless personal self-promotion. If it is constantly discussed, mindlessly and constantly promoted, it ain't there.
Paradoxically, the first half of the 20th century was silently the most peaceful multicultural period in history.

Just ask any normal adult in San Francisco what it was like back then. How many modern parents would allow a 12-year-old to explore all of San Francisco, from Hunters Point to the Sutro Baths, and from lake Merced to the Aquatic Park Pier and everywhere in between with total safety on a three-speed bike?

It was multiculturalism in fact, with no hostility or political maneuvering and constant conflict. Black Panthers back then were simply something that might be found at the zoo, another common bike destination.

There were never mentions of "multiculturalism" anywhere. We all simply lived it.

Only if they learn to eat sand.
Without oil, the curse discovered and developed by non-muslims, Saudi Arabia couldn't even feed itself. All their ostentatious trappings, the giant buildings, magnificent roads and extravagant mens of transportation (all developed and built by "unbelievers") they would still be physically where their minds are : in the Seventh Century.
