Will Multiculturalism End Europe? - By Patrick J. Buchanan

Will Multiculturalism End Europe?

By Patrick J. Buchanan

Multiculturalism has "totally failed," says German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

"State multiculturalism has had disastrous results," says Britain's David Cameron.

Is multiculturalism a failure in France? "My answer is clearly yes, it is a failure," says President Nicolas Sarkozy.

Ex-Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar has declared multiculturalism a failure in Spain, saying it divides and debilitates Western societies.

Only in Canada and the U.S., it seems, is the issue still in dispute.

Yet these European leaders are not leading anyone. They are far behind the people, and their belated appreciation of the idea of national identity is but a product of political panic. 


Take Merkel in Germany.

Last summer, Thilo Sarrazin published a book the title of which may be translated as "Germany Abolishes Itself."

Sarrazin argued that Germany's gastarbeiters, guest workers—Turks, Kurds, Arabs—are dumbing down the nation. While Germany's birth rate fell below replacement levels decades ago, these foreigners with less intelligence and much higher dropout, welfare and crime rates are rapidly replacing the declining German population.

"It is a matter of culture," said Sarrazin, and "Islam is the culture." This is why Muslim immigrants are "socially, culturally and intellectually inferior to most everyone else." Yet Sarrazin did use the phrase a "genetic minus" to describe migrants from the Middle East.

Were these the ravings of a neo-fascist intellectual and closet admirer of the late Fuhrer? Not at all. Sarrazin was a proud member of the Social Democratic Party of Willy Brandt and a board member of the Bundesbank.

With Merkel and the German establishment howling for his head, Thilo resigned, unrepentant. Two-thirds of Germans said he had a right to speak his mind, a third said they agreed with him, and "Germany Abolishes Itself" has sold over a million copies.

It was in response to the firestorm of the Sarrazin affair that Merkel discovered that multiculturalism was a failure. Her EU colleagues have since been falling all over one another to agree.
Another factor has contributed to the sudden awakening of the EU's elite—an explosion of anti-immigrant parties that are siphoning off working-class voters from socialist parties and nationalist voters from conservative parties.

Among these are Jean-Marie Le Pen's National Front in France, the British National Party, the Vlaams Belang in Belgium, Geert Wilders' Freedom Party in Holland, the Swiss People's Party of Christoph Blocher, which won the battle to ban the burka, the Austrian Freedom Party and Alliance for Austria's Future, the Jobbik Party of Hungary, the Lega Nord in Italy, which favors secession, the Danish People's Party, and the Sweden Democrats, who just won a toehold in parliament.

What these parties share is that all are anti-immigrant, anti-Muslim and ethnonational. They want to retain, or restore, a nation of, by and for their own kind, with its own history, holidays, heroes, language, literature, music and art. They are fiercely resistant to any dilution of the ethnic composition or cultural character of their countries.

What is the menace of multiculturalism these people see?

From Moscow to Marseilles, from Stockholm to Sicily, they see the Muslims pouring in and creating tiny nations within the nation, and being unwilling to embrace a new identity as Englishmen, French or German.

And their fears are not unjustified.

For just as the populist parties are deeply ethnonational, proud of their identity as Swiss, Austrian, German, English, Dutch or Flemish, the newcomers, too, are deeply ethnonational: Turkish, Arab and African.
And Islam is a faith that is itself anti-multicultural.

Devout Muslims do not believe all religions are equal. They believe there is one God, Allah, and submission to his law is the path to paradise. They do not believe in freedom of speech and the press if it means mocking the Prophet. They do not believe in Western dress codes or mixing men and women in schools and sports. They do not believe all lifestyles are equal. Some think adulterers should be stoned and honor killings are justified for girls who disgrace the family.

They wish to live their faith and their culture in our countries, to live alongside us but to dwell apart.

"If you come to France," said Sarkozy last week, "you accept to melt into a single community, which is the national community, and if you do not want to accept that, you cannot be welcome in France."

A little late for that. Some 5 million to 8 million Arabs and Muslims are in France, their birth rate is higher, and more are on the way.

The real questions: Whose idea was it to bring these people in? And what do France, Britain and Germany do if they say: This is a democracy, we will live as we wish to live, according to our beliefs, not yours.

How does a liberal, permissive society that celebrates diversity impose its values on a militant immigrant minority that rejects them?

Answer: It doesn't. 

All the rest is chatter.

  1. Hi IBN,

    I hope you're well.
    I've started back 'semi' blogging so to speak, although not back on a regular basis.
    Also, I'm trying to cut down on my long replies. LOL.

    Anyway, multiculturalism won't kill Europe, for the simple reason that Europe's already lost most of its indigenous cultures. Most people do not realise that they've been living a multicultural existence most of their lives. I don't want to go into it, but I've just explained it fully in my latest article on the blog entitled Culture? (By the way, it's not a plug, just will merely answer your views on what culture is).

    As for the likes of Merkel and Sarkozy, well, they're puppets of the NWO, put into their positions of power in order to BRING IN as many non indigenous to the countries of Europe. Therefore for them to attack it, is simply laughable being the hypocrites that they are. Sarkozy promotes racial mixing, not that I think there's a problem with it, unless on a mass scale to destroy races, but as a president of a nation, he's happy to see everything that makes that nation what it is die:

    From the Brussel's Journal

    Recently Nicolas Sarkozy announced plans to pursue a vigorous policy of diversity and m├ętissage. Concretely, this means giving preference to minorities in job hiring and prosecuting those who do not comply. In other words, affirmative action as a government policy from which none are exempt.

    In his message Sarkozy insisted that the French people must change, that there will be dire consequences if they don't, and that not to intermarry racially is bad for the survival of the country. Thus he amalgamated the concepts of preference for minorities in job hiring with that of the need for the French to intermarry racially.


    IBN, all leaders, of all nations in this world are socialists, put into their positions of power in order to promote the one world agenda. The sooner people see this and realise it, the better. Every single authority figure is there to obliterate the nations they're in charge of. They will be well rewarded for it, their families to become parts of the new elite in the future, as they continue to further the gap between rich and poor, destroying the middle class and having one of a super elite and another of all the rest (incredibly poor/peons/slaves).

    Stop listening to the shite from the MSM IBN. Your an intelligent man and you know that. It's there to deceive you and it's doing a good job.

  2. Hi! Good to hear from you again my friend. :)

    Your comments have been languishing in the "spam" area of the comments, sorry for not seeing them sooner.

    I don't know why they ended up there, perhaps it is something to do with your account? I cannot access your links, it is saying you don't exist.

    I only re-applied the moderation facility last week too - typical! lol

    I'm currently at work, so cannot be long...

    I might get back to you later on this - but all I will say for now is that you might (or might not) remember a comment I made on your site about the aims and aspirations for my blog site....?

    This may make it a bit more apparent why I wish to (kind of) act as a bridge and a bolster to push things a certain general direction....grist to the mill, if you like, rather than 'high end' or 'deep end'.

    It isn't always a case of me being decieved...... but more a case of using selective things to a general advantage if possible. ;)

    Ps. I took the liberty of scraping your old blog before it vanished - but I do not know what it did or did not keep. I just ran a program I am not familiar with and left it in a folder.

    I will have a check when I get home if it actually worked, and if there anything you might not have and would like back.

  5. Thankyou for stopping by and making a comment.

    Hopefully some other articles in the archive may be of some interest.

    There is also a link (below the members list on the right) to a sister site called the 'Nationalist Reading Room', where I have compiled a series of other author's work which mirrors the kind of opinions and directions of myself.

    Whilst it is true that I have not kept them up to date, the articles are timeless and not particularly topical.

    Regards,
