Since when does "Multiculturalism" = "Islamic Extremism?"
This issue really isn't as black and white as you would like it to be and your attitude regarding the topic leaves a lot to be desired.
Very good post! thank you!
The whole European continent with its countries and Islands where each country is a specific mix of different European cultures must therefore be
Multicultural in itself even without the Muslim equation!
If you're looking for a pure nationalist cultural Britain you'll need to go back to before the middle ages!
And what about all British people who are moving abroad each year to the continent? to Southern France, to Spain, to Italy etc?
By doing so they all bring with them a part of British culture into these countries.
Just take a look at the British and Spain!
Do many of the Brits mix and assimilate with the Spaniards and the Spanish society 100%?
Not really eh! many of them still live in English middleclass resort ghettos, refusing to learn Spanish and assimilate with Spanish culture.
They open up their own Pub's, butcher shops, a plethora of all kinds of worthless shops selling crap to other tourists, and they have their own
plummer/handyman and TV repairman services etc etc.
So yes, Europe is multicultural even without the Muslims!
And I love all the different cultures of Europe with all its different food-culture, music and art, philosophical ideas, technology etc which is
flowing across the borders through trade and been doing so these latest 1000 years at least.
Northen Europe have many different cultures - Norse, Celtic, Slavic etc - and exactly the same for Southern Europe, and that is okey with me because I
love bits and pieces from all of them, really!
And nowadays they are quite intertwined with eachother on several levels.
New families are even created from this European melting pot of cultures and across the old borders. A young Northen European man meets a hot young
italian chick and they start a family together and vice versa.
And I know personally some crazy English & Scandinavian and German guys who have started families with Spanish and Greek women and their big crazy
families are now very multicultural in a good European way.
So Europe is and has always been Multicultural in many ways even without the Muslims!
Therefore the argument is void because Multi-kulti and a "Multiculturalism" doesn't equal "Islamic Extremism"
That's just cheap political BS rhetroric to win some measly and cheap political points!
The import of people from Islamic countries had nothing to do with "Multiculturalism" really, as the politicians been lying to their voters.
The real reason for the import of all these people was from the beginning an economic incitament, a reason to help an ageing European population with
young cheap labour from second class citizens to do the dirty work which most Europeans didn't want to do like cleaning office buildings, picking
vegetables on the fields, working in dirty factories etc etc.
Then this process completely went bonkers and here we are today with the obvious difficulties of the Elite's and politicians quick fix of an economic
scheme - but it has nothing to do with "Multiculturalism" per se,
It has more to do with problems which occured when so many
people (European economic slaves) at the same time
came to Europe, and who
also happened to have a much different religion than ours - and they were then placed in cheap ghettos were these problems were brewing each year
because the elite neoliberalists had already started to sell out the public owned state corporations and manufacturing to their pals in the elite, and
they had started to move their factories and operations to Asia for more profits - and the unemployment levels and future prospects for these Muslims
was therefore growing each year as a result of this.
The industrial elite and their puppets the Neoliberalist politicians screwed all of us - every taxpayer in Europe!
They imported all this cheap labour to Europe with promises of work, then in the midst of this process they sold out all good state-companies which
the taxpayers owned together, and they sold them dirt cheap TO THEIR PALS in the industrial elite who then moved them to China and elswhere in Asia
FOR MORE PROFIT.
But that is not the fault of "Multiculturalism" - it is an economic problem created by the greedy corporations and the elite who demanded cheap labour
for their industries and corporations, and they didn't give a rat's ass about the wellbeing of their cheap labour - that became the problem and
headache of their corrupt puppet politicians.
The people responsible for the situation today = the greedy elite industrialists and corporatists of Europe who only were looking for profits first
and didn't give a rat's ass about the social wellbeing of the Europeans in the long run. They imported these people and promised them work in Europe -
and after 10-15 years when all these people came, the elite had suddenly changed their greedy plans.
And they left these people in the ghettos without any work and any future work-prospects at all. they lured them to Europe, and when they finally came
with dreams of a better future, they were abandoned in their ghettos were they had no future.
And now they are stuck here!
AND ALL OF THIS BECAUSE OF GREED!
Greed of the elite European industrialists & corporatists, the effects of years of Thatcherism and neolibral political puppets like Mr Cameron
Blame them and their Banking cartel for these problems we're having today, and blame them for their greed and their neoliberal policies which swept
over Europe - blame them for robbing the taxpayers and then selling the public property & manufacturing plants dirt cheap (which the taxpayers owned
and had paid for) to their Masters in the elit - but don't blame Multiculturalism because that was never the problem from day one!
It was a neoliberal economic scheme from the elite and the European Bilderberger industrialists which went terribly wrong because of their greed.
It was the biggest heist ever perpetrated against the ordinary taxpayers of Europe.
And yeah! they screwed their freshly imported Muslims to earn their livings in Europe as well, when these greedy elite bastards and their puppets
politicians sold our public companies and moved the factory plants and other operations to Asia instead, soley for more profits and cheaper
