Britain’s Prime Minister Calls for an End to Multiculturalism

By Jerry A. Kane

For years proponents of multiculturalism have branded their critics as racists, but radical Islam has managed to shock to consciousness Europe’s brain-dead politicians, and now the insidious multicultural model is open to public scrutiny.

During a recent security conference in Munich, Germany, Prime Minister David Cameron declared Britain’s long-standing state-sponsored policy of multiculturalism an abysmal failure.

“[W]e’ve allowed the weakening of our collective identity. Under the doctrine of state multiculturalism, we have encouraged different cultures to live separate lives, apart from each other and the mainstream. We have failed to provide a vision of society to which they feel they want to belong.”

Under state-sponsored multiculturalism, the government accommodates the cultural values of immigrant communities and selectively enforces its laws based on the cultural demands of those communities.

For example, the state would intervene if the family of a white, teenage English girl forced the teen to marry a man twice her age against her will; but it would not intervene if the forced marriage involved a teenage girl from an immigrant family of Asian or Middle Eastern descent.

State-sponsored multiculturalism separates immigrants from the country’s common national culture and encourages them to live separate lives.

“We have failed to provide a vision of society to which they feel they want to belong. We have even tolerated these segregated communities behaving in ways that run counter to our values.”—David Cameron

In his remarks, Cameron asked British citizens to believe in what defines them as a society and to reassert the shared values of their common national culture:

“Freedom of speech. Freedom of worship. Democracy. The rule of law. Equal rights, regardless of race, sex or sexuality. It says to its citizens:  This is what defines us as a society. To belong here is to believe these things.”

Cameron then called on his fellow Brits to oppose multicultural practices and to stand up for the tenets of personal liberty, a common culture, and equality under the law:

“[W]hen … unacceptable views or practices have come from someone who isn’t white, we’ve been too cautious, frankly too fearful, to stand up to them.”

Cameron’s remarks are spot on, but the reality is that the leftist elite establishment will direct its academanics to buttress the pillars of multiculturalism and command its intellectoids to undermine all notions that promote a unified national culture.

The British government is responsible for creating a generation of global citizens who thoroughly despise their nation’s heritage and have no loyalty to their country whatsoever. Even if the government would abandon its multicultural policy tomorrow, it would take at least a decade to negate multiculturalism’s deadly, divisive effects.

Consequently, the country’s common national culture will survive only if the immigrants themselves adopt the nation’s democratic values and reform their communities from within. Even though stranger things have happened, don’t hold your breath.

Your servant here, he has been told

to say it clear, to say it cold:

It’s over, it ain’t going

any further

And now the wheels of heaven stop

you feel the devil’s riding crop

Get ready for the future:

it is murder

I.M. Kane
