Its official: multi-ethnic society a failure
Courtesy of Hellenic Nationalist I've just come accross this news that the Dutch government has declared multiculturalism 'a failure'. It seems to have been buried pretty effectively here in the UK, which is why I'm late in reporting it. The Telegraph states:
Holland's 30-year experiment in trying to create a tolerant, multicultural society has failed and led to ethnic ghettos and sink schools, according to an official parliamentary report.
The Netherlands' example as a successful, tolerant, multicultural community has taken a dent with the publication of a parliamentary report saying Dutch society is becoming increasingly polarised, with huge ethnic ghettos and subcultures tearing the country apart.
The report concludes that the attempt to create an integrated multi-ethnic society has failed. What is surprising is that most of the time these reports just brush over the obvious failures, while as this one not only sites the many failures, but virtually admits complete defeat. Its a complete reversal to the usual arrogant attitude of the liberals who cannot bring themselves to scrap their multi-cultural utopian dream. These liberals have really reaped what they have sown. I remember that Pim Fortuyn had stated that 'immigration, especially from Muslim countries, was diluting Dutch liberal values'. Well if the liberals love their immigration, and the immigrants couldn't care less about liberal values, what did they expect would happen? It shows you that liberal ideology is completely brain-dead and impervious to reality. Some of them are now throwing their arms into the air and openly lamenting the chaotic situation they've created. I blogged a couple of months backed about the Dutch (gay and self-declared “humanist”) author Oscar Van den Boogaard who said that, to him, coping with the islamization of Europe is like “a process of mourning.” He is overwhelmed by a “feeling of sadness.” “I am not a warrior,” he says, “but who is? I have never learned to fight for my freedom. I was only good at enjoying it.”
Meanwhile Trevor Phillips, chairman of the UK's Commission for Racial Equality, says the real enemy of integration is inequality: "The more we keep people unequal, the more they are likely to say, 'This society doesn't want us, it discriminates against us,' (and) they fall into the hands of extremists." The more we keep people unequal? What more does he want the natives to do, they're already second-class citizens in their own country. The only discrimination going on is 'positive discrimination' which is in favour of minorities.
