The Failure of Multiculturalism and How to Turn the Tide

Pages: 1 2

The problem with multiculturalism is a refusal to see reality. The reality that our civilization is superior, and the reality that Islam is a dangerous ideology.

Today, we are confronted with political unrest in the Arab countries. Autocratic regimes, such as that of Ben Ali in Tunisia, Mubarak in Egypt, Kadhafi in Libya, the Khalifa dynasty in Bahrain, and others, have been toppled or are under attack. The Arab peoples long for freedom. This is only natural. However, the ideology and culture of Islam is so deeply entrenched in these countries that real freedom is simply impossible. As long as Islam remains dominant there can be no real freedom.

Let us face reality. On March 8, the International Women’s Day, 300 women demonstrated on Cairo’s Tahrir Square in post-Mubarak Egypt. Within minutes, the women were charged by a group of bearded men, who beat them up and dragged them away. Some were even sexually assaulted. The police did not interfere. This is the new Egypt: On Monday, people demonstrate for freedom; on Tuesday, the same people beat up women because they, too, demand freedom.

I fear that in Islamic countries, democracy will not lead to real freedom. A survey by the American Pew Center found that 59 percent of Egyptians prefer democracy to any other form of government. However, 85 percent say that Islam’s influence on politics is good, 82 percent believe that adulterers should be stoned, 84 percent want the death penalty for apostates, and 77 percent say that thieves should be flogged or have their hands cut off.

Ronald Reagan was right when he called Kadhafi a “mad dog.” However, we should not harbor the illusion that there can be real freedom and real democracy in a country where Islam is dominant. There is no doubt that the results of the Pew survey in Egypt apply in Libya, too. It is not in our interest to bring the Muslim Brotherhood to power in Tripoli and install a khalifate in Libya.

Of course, the world has to stop Kadhafi from killing his own people. However, as UN Resolution 1973 stated last week, this is primarily the responsibility of – I quote – “in particular [the] States of the region.” Why does a country like the Netherlands have to contribute six F16 fighter jets to enforce the arms embargo in Libya, while Saudi Arabia does not contribute a single plane from its fleet of nearly 300 fighter jets? Arabs are dying, but the Arab countries are shirking their responsibilities.

And one of the major threats of the current crisis is not even addressed by our leaders: How are we going to prevent that thousands of economic fugitives and fortune seekers cross the Mediterranean and arrive at place like Lampedusa? Now that Tunisia is liberated, young Tunisians should help to rebuild their country instead of leaving for Lampedusa. Europe cannot afford another influx of thousands of refugees.

Ladies and gentlemen,

It is time to wake up. We need to confront reality and we need to speak the truth. The truth is that Islam is evil, and the reality is that Islam is a threat to us.

Before I continue I want to make clear, however, that I do not have a problem with Muslims as such. There are many moderate Muslims. That is why I always make a clear distinction between the people and the ideology, between Muslims and Islam. There are many moderate Muslims, but there is no such thing as a moderate Islam.

Islam strives for world domination. The Koran commands Muslims to exercise jihad and impose shariah law.

Telling the truth about immigration and warning that Islam might not be as benevolent as the ruling elite says, has been made a hate speech crime in several EU member states. As you probably know, I have been brought to court on charges of hate speech. That is the paradox of the multicultural society. It claims to be pluralistic, but allows only one point of view of world affairs, namely that all cultures are equal and that they are all good.

The fact that we are treated as criminals for telling the truth must not, however, deter us. The truth that Islam is evil has always been obvious to our ancestors. That is why they fought. It was very clear to them that our civilization was far superior to Islam.

It is not difficult to understand why our culture is far better than Islam. We Europeans, whether we be Christians, Jews, agnostics or atheists, believe in reason. We have always known that nothing good could be expected from Islam.

While our culture is rooted in Jerusalem, Athens and Rome, Islam’s roots are the desert and the brain of Muhammad. Our ancestors understood the consequences very well. The Koran, wrote the historian Theophanes, who lived in the second half of the 8th century, is based on hallucinations.

“Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new and there you will find things only evil and inhuman,” the Byzantine Emperor Manuel II said in 1391, adding: “God is not pleased by blood – and not acting reasonable is contrary to God’s nature.”

For 1,400 years, Westerners have been criticizing Islam and its founder because they recognized evil when they saw it. But then, suddenly, in the last decades of the past century, especially from the 1970s onwards, Western intellectuals stopped doing so.

The moral and cultural relativism of Marxism led the West’s political and intellectual elites to adopt a utopian belief in a universal brotherhood of mankind.

Multiculturalism is a culture of repudiation of Europe’s heritage and freedoms. It weakens the West day by day. It leads to the self-censorship of the media and academia, the collapse of the education system, the emasculation of the churches, the subversion of the nation-state, the break-down of our free society.

While today – at last – our leaders seem to realize what a disastrous failure multiculturalism has been, multiculturalism is not dead yet. More is needed to defeat multiculturalism than the simple proclamations that it has been an “absolute failure.” What is needed is that we turn the tide of Islamization.

There are a few things which we can do in this regard.

One thing which we should do is to oppose the introduction of Sharia or Islamic law in our countries. In about a dozen states in the United States, legislation is currently being introduced to prevent the introduction of Sharia. In early May, I will be traveling to the U.S. to express my support to these initiatives. We should consider similar measures in Europe.

Another thing which we should do is support Muslims who want to leave Islam. An International Women’s Day is useless in the Arab world if there is no International Leave Islam Day. I propose the introduction of such a day in which we can honor the courageous men and women who want to leave Islam. Perhaps we can pick a symbolic date for such a day and establish an annual prize for an individual who has turned his back on Islam or an organization which helps people to liberate themselves from Islam. It is very easy to become a Muslim. All one has to do is to pronounce the Shahada, the Islamic creed, which says – I quote “There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.” It should be equally easy to leave Islam by pronouncing a counter-Shahada, which says “I leave Islam and join humankind.”

A third measure to turn the tide of Islamization is to reemphasize the sovereignty of the nation-state. The peoples of the free world will only be able to fight back against Islam if they can rally around a flag with which they can identify. This flag, symbolizing pre-political loyalty, can only be the flag of our nation. In the West, our freedoms are embodied in our nation-states. This is why the multiculturalists are hostile to the nation-state and aim to destroy it.

National identity is an inclusive identity: It welcomes everyone, whatever his religion or race, who is willing to assimilate into a nation by sharing the fate and future of a people. It ties the individual to an inheritance, a tradition, a loyalty, and a culture.

I want to elaborate a bit on this since we are gathered here today in Rome. Again, it is appropriate that we are in Rome. In this city, in 1957, and – what an ironic coincidence – on this very day, the 25th of March, the Treaty of Rome was signed. This Treaty obliges the member states of the European Union to aim for “an ever closer union.”

Unfortunately, this union, like other multinational organizations, has become one of the vehicles for the promotion of multiculturalism. The EU has fallen in the hands of a multiculturalist elite who by undermining national sovereignty destroy the capacity of the peoples of Europe to democratically decide their own future.

The new government in my country, which is supported by my party, wants to restrict immigration. That is what our voters want. But we are confronted by the fact that our policies have to a large extent been outsourced to “Europe” and that our voters no longer have a direct say over their own future.

On account of international treaties, EU legislation prevails over national legislation and cannot be reversed by national parliaments. Indeed, in 2008, the European Court of Justice, the highest court in the EU, annulled both Irish and Danish immigration legislation. The Court stated that national law is subordinate to whatever is ruled on the European level. In March 2010, the European Court of Justice annulled Dutch legislation restricting family reunification for immigrants on welfare.

The ease with which Europe’s political elite conducts an immigration policy aimed at the deracination of Europe shows the insensitivity of this elite. It willingly sacrifices its own people to its political goal, without any consideration for the people involved.
Lower class blue-collar people have been driven from their neighborhoods. There is no respect for their democratic vote. On the contrary, people who do not agree with the multiculturalist schemes are considered to be racists and xenophobes, while the undefined offence of “racism and xenophobia” has been made central to all moral pronouncements by the European Union, the Council of Europe, the United Nations, and other supra-national organizations. This represents a systematic assault by the elite on the ordinary feelings of national loyalty.

In 2008, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe stated that the member-states must – I quote – “condemn and combat Islamophobia” and ensure “that school textbooks do not portray Islam as a hostile or threatening religion.” – end of quote.

In March 2010, the United Nations Human Rights Council passed a resolution criminalizing so-called “defamation of religions.” The resolution, authored by Pakistan, mentions only one religion by name: Islam. With its 57 member states the Organization of the Islamic Conference systematically uses its voting power in the UN to subvert the concept of freedom and human rights. In 1990, the OIC rejected the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights and replaced it by the Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam, which states in articles 24 that – I quote – “All the rights and freedoms stipulated in this Declaration are subject to the Islamic Sharia.” – end of quote.

This “human rights” charade has to stop if Western civilization wants to survive. Human rights exist for the protection of individuals, not religions and ideologies.

The EU’s aim, meanwhile, seems to be to destroy the old sovereign nations and replace them by new provincial identities, which are all clones of each other. Britanistan will not differ from Netherlandistan, nor Germanistan from Italiastan, or any other province of the European superstate in the making.

We must reclaim Europe. We can only do so by giving political power back to the nation-state. By defending the nation-states which we love, we defend our own identity. By defending our identity, we defend who we are and what we are against those who want to deracinate us. Against those who want to cut us from our roots, so that our culture withers away and dies.

My friends,

Twenty years after the ordinary people, Europe’s mainstream conservative leaders, such as Merkel, Sarkozy and Cameron, have finally – better late than never – come to the obvious conclusion, namely that multiculturalism is a failure. However, they do not have a plan to remedy the situation.

Ladies and gentlemen, it is time for change. We must make haste. Time is running out. Ronald Reagan said: “We need to act today, to preserve tomorrow”. That is why I propose the following measures in order to preserve our freedom:

First, we will have to defend freedom of speech. It is the most important of our liberties. If we are free to speak, we will be able to tell people the truth and they will realize what is at stake.

Second, we will have to end cultural relativism. To the multiculturalists, we must proudly proclaim: Our Western culture is far superior to the Islamic culture. Only when we are convinced of that, we will be willing to fight for our own identity.

Third, we will have to stop Islamization. Because more Islam means less freedom. We must stop immigration from Islamic countries, we must expel criminal immigrants, we must forbid the construction of new mosques. There is enough Islam in Europe already. Immigrants must assimilate and adapt to our values: When in Rome, do as the Romans do.

Fourth, we must restore the supremacy and sovereignty of the nation-state. Because we are citizens of these states, we can take pride in them. We love our nation because they are our home, because they are the legacy which our fathers bestowed on us and which we want to bestow on our children. We are not multiculturalists, we are patriots. And because we are patriots, we are willing to fight for freedom.

Let me end with a final – and a positive – remark: Though the situation is bad and multiculturalism is still predominant, we are in better shape than the Roman Empire was before its fall.

The Roman Empire was not a democracy. The Romans did not have freedom of speech. We are the free men of the West. We do not fight for an Empire, we fight for ourselves. We fight for our national republics. You fight for Italy, I fight for the Netherlands, others fight for France, Germany, Britain, Denmark or Spain. Together we stand. Together we represent the nations of Europe.

I am confident that if we can safeguard freedom of speech and democracy, our civilization will be able to survive. Europe will not fall. We, Europe’s patriots, will not allow it.

Thank you very much.

    It is said that history is written by the winners. Whether Geert Wilders is remembered as a xenophobic bigot or a champion of freedom, a Mosely or a Churchill…will tell us all we need to know about the destiny of our civilization.

    Wilders so effectively highlights the fallacies of the multicultural narrative, but one of the telling oversights of the anti-immigration parties of Europe is their inability or unwillingness to distinguish BETWEEN immigrants. For example, at the very time that the EDL is campaigning to curb Muslim immigration into Britain, they should be welcoming Indians of Hindu and Sikh origin, insisting that while the former self-segregate and display mostly contempt for the host society, the latter two have integrated seamlessly and contribute mightily to the national fabric. For how poignantly telling that British Hindus and Sikhs have campaigned to have the media begin referring to them by their respective religious affiliation as opposed to the existing, all-embracing moniker of "Asian", for the precise reason that they DON'T want to be associated with the disaffection and social pathologies that define the British Muslim immigrant community.

    So it should be in France, that at the very time the anti-immigrant parties advocate shutting the door on Muslim immigration from North Africa, they should extend the welcome-mat to French-speaking Indo-Chinese and SUB-Saharan Africans. For it can be readily acknowledged – (if we're honest) – that the Vietnamese and Congolese immigrants of France – like their Hindu and Sikh counterparts in Britain – integrate seamlessly. They take no part in the episodic, violent demonstrations throughout France in which virtually thousands of cars are torched every year in a now-ritualistic display of Muslim disaffection (of course, cars with Muslim bumper-stickers or decals are always spared).

    Likewise in Spain, Moroccan immigrants with an adversarial cultural mentality should be kept out at the very time that Bolivians and other immigrants from Latin America should be welcome. After all, unlike Islam, the culture of Latin America is an extension of the West.

    EUROPE NEEDS IMMIGRANTS. An aging population and the unwillingness of natives to procreate necessitates such a reality. SOMEBODY has to keep the factories running so that Europeans can retire in comfort. The problem is not immigration per se, it is the TYPE of immigrant being brought in. There is nothing in the cultural ethos of East Asia, sub-Saharan Africa, and Latin America which is fundamentally incompatible with Western civilization. That distinction lies ONLY with Islam.

    "Discrimination" is not necessarily the evil we make it out to be. As free human beings, we discriminate every day through the choices we make…whom we choose to associate with, whom we choose to romance, whom we choose to confide in, etc. So it is must we learn to discriminate whom we choose to allow in to live among us. Distinguishing between an Egyptian Copt and an Egyptian Muslim, between an Iranian Bahai and an Iranian Muslim, between an Indian Hindu and a Pakistani Muslim, between a Vietnamese Buddhist and an Indonesian Muslim, between an Angolan Christian and a Chadian Muslim…CANNOT be racism, because the races are either identical or similar. It is a discrimination based NOT on race, but on religion/culture….and it is a discrimination that is absolutely indispensable to insure the survivability of our OWN cultural values.

    Now it goes without saying that Muslims already living in the West should enjoy all the rights of other citizens, although common sense profiling and scrutiny of mosques should be employed to deal with the problems of extremism that afflict this particular community. Furthermore, a program of offering financial incentives to Muslim immigrants willing to repatriate to their countries of origin should be considered.

    Understanding all this is acknowledging everything Geert Wilders is postulating as he deconstructs the multicultural fallacy being perpetrated upon us all. Islamic culture IS DIFFERENT than all others…and presents us with unique challenges that require unique solutions. So let the discrimination begin!

    No long-winded speeches required to prove that multiculturalism is false. Simply consider that if it were true, the U.S. wouldn't have an illegal alien problem because Mexican nationals wouldn't be risking their lives, and the lives of their families, and paying a coyote a couple of thousand dollars for the privilege of crossing a burning desert just to earn enough to eat. They would be staying in Mexico because there would be no point in going to all the trouble and risk to get to another culture that was equal to the one they left.

    • kblink45

      Interesting point. What Mexicans are fleeing, though mostly unwittingly, is a nation without legal or strong cultural protections of private property. The history of Mexico since 1917, at least, is inexplicable without noting its likeness to a child's game of 'king of the mountain.' He who controls the high ground controls the spoils. For most of the last century, the single ruling party, the PRI, maintained stability unusual in Latin America, but at the expense of private enterprise. PEMEX, the giant state-controlled corporation with a monopoly over oil-production and refining, is merely the most visible manifestation of the political corruption of Mexico's economy.

      Contempt for private ownership is, perhaps, the most important parallel between socialist states and Islamic countries.

      • sflbib

        I agree. It is explained in detail in "The Mystery of Capital" by Hernando de Soto. However, "without legal or strong cultural protections of private property" is part of their culture.

    Houston—an 11-year-old girl was passed around like a meaty pre-pube rag doll between two dozen or so BLACK males ranging in age from 14 to 26. Police have made eighteen arrests in an ongoing investigation. So far, all of those charged are black, and the preteen victim has been identified as Hispanic. A judge has placed a gag order on the case, presumably to throw a wet blanket over what is rapidly becoming an ethnic tinderbox in this town of 8,000 where the major employers are Walmart and a prison. Yes let's not show black culture in its true color. The MSM media will igore it too!

        I don't doubt you have got plenty more.
        But, unless you are in a state of complete denial, you must know that will never be plenty enough to upset the staggering number of the black crime. Not even close.

        I think in a discussion like that one has to admit that in the end it is the statistic that need to have the last word. Don't you?

        Well, let it talk:

        * According to the US Department of Justice survey of crime victims, more than 6.6 million violent crimes (murder, rape, assault and robbery) are committed in the US each year, of which about 20 per cent, or 1.3 million, are inter-racial crimes.
        * Most victims of race crime – about 90 per cent – are white, according to the survey "Highlights from 20 Years of Surveying Crime Victims," published in 1993.
        * Almost 1 million white Americans were murdered, robbed, assaulted or raped by black Americans in 1992, compared with about 132,000 blacks who were murdered, robbed, assaulted or raped by whites, according to the same survey.
        * Blacks thus committed 7.5 times more violent inter-racial crimes than whites even though the black population is only one-seventh the size of the white population. When these figures are adjusted on a per capita basis, they reveal an extraordinary disparity: blacks are committing more than 50 times the number of violent crimes of whites.

        And, by the way, white on black rape is non-existent, or at least statistically undetectable. An, one more thing, these figures were from 1992. The contrast between the frequency of white versus black crime has increased since.

        • Jerry

          Your stats are true, but irrelevent to the discussion. USMC Sniper's racist dialouge is the issue. Yes there are problems in the black community that must be addressed, but he presents the issue as if what matters in good and evil is race, which is utterly ridiculous given Hiter, Stalin, Mao, et al.

          The ancestors of blacks were bought here by whites (yes I know of more recent immigration) and share our common inheritance in America. (The phony I believe) USMC Sniper's point is irrelevant to the issue of immigration as a strategy for conquest.

    Flood-gates opened in the 60's/70's, now what? EVERY where in Canada & Europe that I've seen that has had a large number of Ethinic groups living together has become an undesirable place to live. The UN has labelled Toronto as the most ethnically diverse city in the world. Why? Because ALOT of Canadians left the city because of the increase in crime and how run down everything got. Now, even taxi drivers won't go down some streets in Rexdale (area of Toronto), because its so rough. Last year, walking around London, I found myself on a street with only arabic writting everywhere. The store signs, ect… Then I realized I was getting dirty looks from everyone as I was the only white guy on the street. And I'd never seen a fully covered muslim woman until I went to Paris. I've travelled ALOT of the world, and NEVER saw a the full face vail on a muslim before. Even in Egypt and Morroco I never saw that. I can see why the French did that ban on it. There's so much of it in Paris, its actually unbelievable to see it. Nobody wants it.
