The Multiculturalism Blues

Columnist Michael Barone has brilliantly exposed the horrible consequences of bowing to the wishes of liberal "multiculturalism". One important danger of such wrong headed thinking is that a society that embraces such claptrap opens itself up to a 9/11, or a 7/7.

Here are some of the highlights from Barone's column:

Multiculturalism preaches that we should allow and encourage immigrants and their children to maintain and celebrate their own culture apart from the national culture. Society should be not a melting pot but, in the phrase of former New York Mayor David Dinkins, "a gorgeous mosaic." That mosaic, of course, looks less gorgeous as people surveyed the work of the British-born-and-raised bombers.

In the past, Tony Blair has spoken favorably about multiculturalism. But on July 7, he struck a different note. "It is important, however, that the terrorists realize our determination to defend our values and our way of life is greater than their determination to cause the death and destruction of innocent people and impose their extremism on the world."

Multiculturalism is based on the lie that all cultures are morally equal. In practice, that soon degenerates to: All cultures are morally equal, except ours, which is worse. But all cultures are not equal in respecting representative government, guaranteed liberties and the rule of law. And those things arose not simultaneously and in all cultures, but in certain specific times and places -- mostly in Britain and America, but also in various parts of Europe.

Multiculturalist intellectuals do not think our kind of society is worth defending. But millions here and increasing numbers in Britain and other countries know better.

For the cowardly, liberals out there who are having trouble comprehending why Britain is "acting the way that they are", let me just say that coddling terrorists, and terrorist supporters via "multiculturalism" is the same thing as volunteering funding and logistical support for their cause.

After all, what is a better boon for terrorists than providing your enemy an environment that facilitates their diabolical cause by ensuring that they can plan and prepare for their attacks in peace and quiet in the very camp of the enemy that they wish to behead?

The ACLU exists for opportunities such as this!
