Multicultural Failure in Europe Too

There must be something in the water in Europe these days. Euros are starting to run their economies on capitalist market principles, and German chancellor Angela Merkel said recently that attempts to build a multicultural society have “utterly failed”.


Meanwhile the United States continues to spend wildly and to do much of its business in both English and Spanish by adapting more and more multiculturalism at the urging of the Democrat left.


Merkel said that the idea of a society where people of different backgrounds would “live side-by-side happily” has collapsed and that immigrants – particularly Turkish Muslims – need to do more to integrate, including learning German.


If only Americans would demand that latino immigrants learn English we would catch up with “conservative” Merkel.


In a recent survey, 30% of Germans said that they felt that their nation was being “overrun by foreigners” and that those foreigners had come to Germany to take advantage of its generous welfare-state benefits. Which is something that we conservatives have warned about since the Founding Fathers.


Merkel told a gathering of younger members of her conservative Christian Democratic Union that at “the beginning of the 60s our country called the foreign workers to come to Germany and now they live in our country…” but that “We kidded ourselves a while, we said: ‘They won’t stay, sometime they will be gone’, but this isn’t reality.”


But why should they leave. The socialists knitted every one of them a golden hammock.


BBC.com reported:


‘Earlier this month the chancellor (Merkel) held talks with Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, in which the two leaders pledged to do more to improve the often poor integration record of Germany‘s estimated 2.5 million-strong Turkish community.’ (end of excerpt)


So in other words, the host country that provides all the technology, prosperity and government subsidies also has to help to integrate the immigrants who come there.


Why can’t the immigrants integrate themselves by learning the language? They already are getting huge benefits from the German government, just as millions of hispanics are refusing to integrate into the United States by even learning English, while at the same time taking advantage of our economy and our government benefits.


The German situation is being advocated by the same socialist left as America’s. They want to overwhelm the government and the economy with recalcitrant immigrants in order to seize more and more power by catering to the outsiders and offering them more and more in benefits, while portraying those who oppose them as evil.


And consider that Germany has a much more controlled immigration than the US, yet it has much the same problems.


BBC said further:


‘The debate first heated up in August when Thilo Sarrazin, a senior official at Germany‘s central bank, said that “no immigrant group other than Muslims is so strongly connected with claims on the welfare state and crime”. Mr Sarrazin has since resigned.’ (end of excerpt)


So in other words, any German citizen who speaks the truth must resign, but any immigrant who puts a lien on the welfare state or commits crime has a legitimate grievance against the German state if there is any criticism. Who knows what the lefty lawyers will cook up next to harass native-born Germans who speak out.


This is socialism at work, friends. And obviously the rhetoric has ratcheted up in the recession as Germans find themselves more economically stressed, as American citizens are as well. Meanwhile immigrants who refuse to integrate are often living very well at the expense of the taxpayer, much better than they ever could hope for in their native lands.


That is the main reason why here in the US Republican challenger Lou Barletta is going to win a congressional seat in Pennsylvania. Because he was the mayor of Hazelton, Pa. who stood up strongly to illegal immigrants. Meanwhile, of course, the Obama administration is siding with illegals every step of the way while Americans are killed on their own property like Arizona rancher Robert Krentz who is believed to have been murdered by an illegal alien.


The Euros have brought this situation on themselves. Since Euro reconstruction after World War II, they have built up massive welfare states that attract poor people from abroad. The United States, on the other hand, has had a strong economy that attracted people who wanted to work. But the result has been the same: Large populations that refuse to integrate and that still wish to celebrate their native customs and tongues.


Of course, there always has been such a problem with immigrants. The Irish in America suffered for decades as the “outsiders” and so did other immigrant groups. But eventually, they did integrate. Most of the children of European immigrants learned English.


But today, hispanics are speaking Spanish well into the next and the next generation, just as Turkish Muslims are refusing to learn German. American hispanics have sky-high school dropout rates, while the children of immigrants from Vietnam and China rocket ahead to the top of the class.


What does all this say?


It says that people from different places have different habits, skills, intelligence and motivations, and that millions of immigrants today do not wish to work hard to advance or integrate, but are happy where they are – dependent and relatively poorer, but still very comfortable. In other words, life is easy. Meanwhile, thousands of Muslim immigrants from poor countries immigrate to the West not even to improve themselves, but to plot against the West.


Merkel and the Germans certainly see this. Many Islamo-terrorists have havens in Germany and this certainly is upsetting to the Germans. Ditto America. New groups are forming, and smaller one-man plots like the Fort Hood murders are going to increase if we continue to lose control of our immigrants and let them exist without integration.


It is time for America to control our borders and find out who is here. And if they refuse to integrate and are not citizens, they should be considered for deportation, particularly the Muslims, many of whom we know are here to do us harm, just as they doing in Germany. All the while living off of the largess of the same government they wish to bring down.
