The essential element of Progressivism is that we must all agree on what is good, and what is good is what the Progressives say is good. So when they said multi-culturalism was something we should all embrace, those duped by the autocracy embraced it. Those who made the point that every time we allowed other cultures to develop in the society we had built, it automatically eroded part of our own culture, were told to shut the hell up, and classified as persona non grata.
The NZ Herald and the NY Times wouldn’t print their letters, and neither Al Franken or Kerre Woodham would allow them to vent on their talkback shows. ABC and TV One ran uplifting stories of the benefits of multiculturalism and spiked stories of (for example) female genital mutilation. You were either a multiculturalist or a bigoted cave dwelling redneck/ racist.
The thrust of the Multiculturalist ideal was that a mix of cultures was preferable to a single culture. No evidence was offered to support this. The Progressives merely ordained it to be so, and it became so. Now, multiculturalism shows every sign of just being one more very bad idea of the kind the left have been generating for decades.
As the distinct items of Judeo Christian culture that characterised it as one of the most successful in global history have been eroded, and immigrants have (for example) attempted to impose laws that confront our own, and attacked our armed forces, and set off bombs among our population, and attempted to subject woman family members to stone age rites, and preached hate and intolerance of our own culture on a wide scale, the diversity and vibrancy and colour that the progressives said we needed so badly, starts to look like a very bad trade off.
The Daily Mail today reports an exceptionally offensive act by our imported friends.
Fanatics from a banned Islamic hate group have launched a nationwide poster campaign denouncing Christmas as evil. Organisers plan to put up thousands of placards around the UK claiming the season of goodwill is responsible for rape, teenage pregnancies, abortion, promiscuity, crime and paedophilia. They hope the campaign will help ‘destroy Christmas’ in this country and lead to Britons converting to Islam instead. [..] The bottom of the poster declares: ‘In Islam we are protected from all of these evils. We have marriage, family, honour, dignity, security, rights for man, woman and child.’
A spokesman boasted that the posters would be put up in cities around the country, including London, Birmingham and Cardiff. Doesn’t this make it all worthwhile? This colour. This vibrancy. This dynamism. This harmony. This wonderful cultural melting pot that the Progressives have foisted upon us? Please, if you leave any comments , try and make sure you don’t offend any Muslims. You know you don’t want to look like a racist redneck.
