Will Multiculturalism End Europe? - By Patrick J. Buchanan

Will Multiculturalism End Europe?

By Patrick J. Buchanan

Multiculturalism has "totally failed," says German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

"State multiculturalism has had disastrous results," says Britain's David Cameron.

Is multiculturalism a failure in France? "My answer is clearly yes, it is a failure," says President Nicolas Sarkozy.

Ex-Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar has declared multiculturalism a failure in Spain, saying it divides and debilitates Western societies.

Only in Canada and the U.S., it seems, is the issue still in dispute.

Yet these European leaders are not leading anyone. They are far behind the people, and their belated appreciation of the idea of national identity is but a product of political panic. 

A relatively recent joust

.

I have not published much on the blog site lately. 

This is partially because I have been busily writing in the 'draft' facility over the last few days, with something pertaining to my 'outsiders' view to the recent problems in the British National Party and the general difficulties we face as a wider movement. 

However, I have not yet decided whether to publish that material or not. 

In the meantime, I thought I would share a relatively recent joust which (at the time) I needed to get off my chest. 

An opponent came along for a bit of a challenge (on another site), and I could not resist having a go at re-sharpening some of my focus and getting back into a bit of dialogue with somebody who was diametrically opposed to most of our views. 

Seeing as I had not had such a joust in quite a long time, I admit that in some places I went over the top and wrote a bit too much - especially in comparison to their come-backs. Yet, I always did find it easy to get carried away. 

The issue was to do with the general 'far right', but in this instance it was more specific to the English Defence League - but for them, the challenger, I doubt they really knew what the differences were between the EDL and the British Nationalists anyway. 

I apologise in advance for such a long read, I know I write too much and it is a curse I have to bear. I hope people can find the patience. 

I repost it here for the reason of both updating the blog site with some material (unashamedly!) and to stop it from going down the plug hole - just in case anyone agrees with my views or has something to add or advise to make it more accurate.

I will start off with the opponents reply that led me to join in, and go from there, including the responses I received along the way.
