If there’s a problem with diversity, just add more diversity. It’s bound to make things better.
Yesterday, French police arrested the terrorist accused of murdering three Jews in Brussels, Belgium on the eve of the European elections. The killer, 29-year old French citizen Mehdi Nemmouche, a son of Muslim immigrants, had gone to Syria in 2013…
The way to combat this, Yvan Mayeur, the Socialist Mayor of Brussels, said, was “to give room to the many cultures and religions in Europe.”
Yvan Mayeur, the Socialist Mayor of Brussels, said that to combat anti-Semitism and racism, his city needed more “diversity.”
Anti-Semitism would be better combated with less diversity. For all the native bigotry, it’s been a while since the average citizen of Brussels thought that killing Jews was a good way to pass the time.
The same can’t be said for its Muslim settlers.
But the left can’t process minority bigotry. Its response to Muslim Supremacist bigotry is to solve it with more diversity. And that’s how this whole mess got started.
The London Review of Books responded to the killings with a long snarky piece about Brussels that managed to reference UKIP, Le Pen, Denis Thatcher, PVV, Pierre Poujade, Lega Nord and Breivik– none of whom had anything to do with the attack.
Missing was the dreaded “M” word.
After describing the local scene, the piece abruptly turns to discussing fascism in the EU elections as if one had anything to do with the other. It’s a curious mechanism of distraction and denial.
European leftists, like American leftists, are incapable of discussing the actual issue.
If a Neo-Nazi had been responsible, then conclusions would have been drawn. When a Muslim is responsible, then it’s time to mutter something about UKIP and diversity.
