As recently stated by German Chancellor Merkle, French President Sarkozy and British Prime Minister Cameron, “multiculturalism,” is an abject failure.
Unless a country is allowed to maintain its own identity, history and culture while allowing people to integrate, it leads to ethnic strife and death. Insisting that those joining their community share the same language and accept the culture of their new homes, does not mean the emigrants may not maintain their own culture in their personal dealings. It does not, in any way, denigrate the emigrants culture.
It does, however, mean the blatantly obvious:
“You have left your home country, and you are free and welcome in ours. As long as you learn our language and respect our laws, and the rights of our citizens to continue to run our government and our lives as though you never arrived on our shores, you are welcome. If you feel you cannot join and live within the parameters of the free culture you have arrived in, you have the same freedom to leave our shores as you had to come here. You do not have the right to try to change this country into anything.”
No country can survive the Balknization created when weak-kneed politicians allow emigrants to set up their own cultural enclaves, complete with foreign justice systems and “No-go zones” for the host countries law enforcement.
Only our Second Amendment has kept our government from forcing the same lawlessness and chaos upon us.
When the French and British governments announced to their subjects, (a free, armed populace are citizens, an unarmed populace are subjects), they were allowing muslims to set up their own private enclaves, courts and all the rest, did the French and British subjects have any recourse?
When the muslims were burning French cities and the police were letting them do it, night after night, did the subjects have any recourse?
When the muslims rioted and killed people in countries all around the world over the accurate portrayal of mohammed, (may he rest in ham), in some cartoons, did the attacked countries subjects have any recourse?
Is there any reason, other than our second amendment, to explain their not rioting in the US? The cartoons were also published here.
We have Mexicans claiming our country is theirs, (the racist group, La Raza), ignoring our laws at will, and muslims proudly proclaiming their intention to force the barbaric, shamefully savage seventh-century sharia law upon America.
