its about dam time.
The long overdue backlash against multi-cultural nonsense has begun in the UK. Can't wait for it to come here to America. What it comes down to is this: if you don't want to act British (or American), don't come here. If your culture is so important to you that you can't leave it behind, well, perhaps you're better off staying home. If you come to our country, you will be expected to fit into our culture. It's such a simple concept, yet so many people can't seem to grasp it.
Yeah, seems like they're finally realizing multiculturalism is a failure. Hopefully this won't be just talk and they actually do something about it.
I'm not trying to debate you, but what parts of our culture? I mean aside from the obvious speaking our language and not killing people for thinking differently, what parts of American culture are immigrants dismissing? I'm actually hoping you'll enlighten me to this, because I don't know.
-Refusing to understand local traditions (christmas, way we dress, food) -Demanding specialist Islamic traditional practices to be held here (sharia law, the tent thing they wear) -Separating themselves as much as possible from the community (organising 'muslim only' events) -Not understanding our system of free speech (mohammid cartoons ring a bell?) I'm not against Muslims in this country, however somthing needs to set their priorities straight. We let them into this country that we slaved over and built up, we are the ones that enable them to live free, say what they want, we are the ones that offer benfits the jokes that cant get a job, we are the ones that supply them with all the goods they enjoy everyday. The least they can do is respect that.
Well, we do have the Minute Men, who oppose illegal immigration, but also support legal immigration and naturalization based on criteria of being able to fit into our society and with background checks to make sure we're not importing any dangerous elements. But they've already met with the backlash of immigrants' rights activists (immigrants have had rights for over a century now, so it's kind of silly, the Minute Men are just supporting enforcing regulation of procedures set in place for their and our safety) that's started at Columbia University.
Good, I think it's perfectly acceptable to ask your immigrants to accept your standards for human rights and public discourse. I think it's already here. We never went so far down the accomodation road as the European countries have. English will be standard pretty soon (I'd say within 3-4 years). Every single one of those things is practiced by any number of ethnic/religious groups in this country. Jews, Christians, Atheists, etc. All have their own community events. We never had a problem with the Mohammed cartoons. I don't recall any muslim riots, did I miss that one?
+1 Reps for Engarland.
Those aren't enough for you? Do not expect your child to be taught in Spanish. Do not have your women show up at the mall dressed like a suicide bomber. Do not have your daughter refuse to work with a male lab partner in public school because Allah forbids it. Accept the fact that unlike back home, you're not allowed to beat your women, even if they "disrespect" you. Grasp the concept that perfume is not a substitute for bathing. Do not sue the NYC public school system for not providing a Halal meal for your children. Do not expect to be hired for a city job if you won't take off your turban. In short, act American.
Tony Blair kicks ass.
Tony Blair for president! Too bad multiculturalism is a part of that liberal PC bullshit. Libs are going to get the White House...
HIP HIP HOORRAAAY! Damn fucking straight.
I'm not so sure. They now have 2 years in which to do things. You're more likely to fuck up when you're doing something than you are when you're just sitting there complaining about things that are being done around you. This chance to prove themselves in the next 2 years could blow up in their faces. At the very least it will serve to show that democrats in power don't reduce terrorism abroad or automatically mean all our problems are gone like a lot of people are disillusioned into thinking anymore. The burden of instant positive results is now being carried by them like it's been for republicans the last 12 years. One "oh shit" is enough to erase any number of "atta boys". As long as Republicans don't offer up a neo-con, it's anybody's race at this point.
To be honest, after seeing Bush drag us at blazing speed towards a totalitarian government, I'm pretty much ready to vote for any Democrat other than Hillary. I just hate the PC bullshit they all love.
Well, I didn't see that, but I'm just ready to see someone who is a moderate, instead of just claiming to be one, take the White House.
Gotta admit! I'm suprised! Didnt think anything like this would happen so soon. Good going Mr Blair! Now we just need some leaders over HERE to get some balls & do the same.
About fucking time, 9 years in power and the big-ear'ed goit finaly does something that resembles sense... Now if he could just get rid of the ASBO's and put the criminals back in prison, we could be onto a winner here. Oh don't think that he's our superhero or anything, he's just trying to save his party's arse... he's going to be out of power by September next year (he's stepping down) and he just wants to make sure that his party stays in power by giving the people what he should have given them in '97. I wouldn't be surprised if he rips up the debt the NHS has accumulated next week. Tony Blair: Giving Britain what it needs... a good decade too late.
^^^ better late than never! At least it is making headlines & being said! He may have nothing to lose by saying it.... but its still good that it was said. I wish BUSH (now that he has been neutered & will be on the way out) would come down HARD on illegal immigration, of which he has done NOTHING during most of his terms.
If he did it in the first place then there wouldn't be a huge mess to clear up, he's saving his arse and nothing else. It's good he's saying it, don't get me wrong... just wish he said it a little earlier.
