>“Multiculturalism” is a wonderful word for politicians because it can mean almost anything your audience wants to imagine.<

We Germans know very well what "Multiculturalism" means.

It means living in the style of your former country, apart from Germans.

People who come here and expect all the benefits the Germany State offers--but are otherwise not interested in our ways and laws, both written and unwritten--should have stayed home.

But if they only sip your soup then tell you that your soup is inferior and that you should give them special soup, I don't think it is such a good deal.

Comrade
I beg to submit this.
I was born in India where the multi culti is still there with all conflicts.
I live in Köln where the multi culti is highly appreciated.
This lady who wish to divert the attention of the decent citizens of Germany had damaged her political future.
And i will bid her farewell without regrets or remorse.

At right doses and in good way multiculturalism could be a good thing,in fact I'm not really against it, but sure everyone have to respect the country's laws and culture, that makes muslims not welcome in this multiculturalism project, all the others seems to behave correctly.
Multiculturalism with NO Muslims is the way.
If other races and religions will feel a sense of hostility by the Europeans they only have to thanks muslims,not Europeans if we reached this point.
So for your own benefit and welfare everybody is invited and free to kick muslims OUT!!! Anyway nobody likes them

We did much better when we had a balance of appreciating our culture without the need to push it in each other's faces. We had a 'melting-pot' and were almost melded when the race wars and multiculturalism proceeded to divide instead of unite us all.

“Multiculturalism”
This is a major leftist code word which is often used as a rhetorical weapon against whites. Euphemistically,'multicultural ism' means,“we need fewer white people.”
This word implies that whites have no culture, that whites are only allowed to celebrate other peoples’ cultures but not their own -- and that the cultural decline of whites is to be celebrated.

What kind of culture can smelly muzzies bring to any western nation? They refuse to integrate and only bring violence and trouble.

Multiculturalism is a trendy topic.
multiethnic.

Every youpies on the planet tell multuculturalism ten times a day.

But it's a terrible mistake.

mother nature provides us a perfect show case called Yougoslavia.
You put many ethny together in the country of an ethny, and what's happen.
It's exlpode, they tear up each other.

You know the nature or God or boudha, he created the planet, he created the humans, and check them each second.
He provides a land for each ethny. A nation.
We must not modify that.

Immigration 5 percents maximum.

England France Germany their is a missunderstanding going on.
many people in this countries belong to the left wing. They don't have it.
They want to be people with good moral value.
They constantly force the other part of the country to accept more foreigners immgrants.

And why?
Their is a terrible missunderstanding going on in our western country.

I m overintelligent. My english sucks, but i understand things that stupid normal civilians like you don't catch.

Why is their so many people who play the hero humanists? and force the other part of the country to accept millions of immigrants invaders?

It's simple, you see what Hitler did 60 years ago.
That's the worste things on earth for our consciuous.

The stupid naive left wing people think, we must do exactly the opposite, then we will be the good people with good moral values.
We must never punish immigrants who steal, we must never punish hardly immigranst who did something bad, we must never refuse immigrants, our countries must be open to everybody.
We must never criticisize an immigrant.

WRONG.
Making the opposite of what Hitler did is not good also.
Making the opposite of what Hitler did is not good also.

We must not be overnice with immigrants, because we think making opposite what hitler did is.

Bible, Coran, other religious books saiy, you must protect your house.
Immigration 5 percents maximum.
A country must contain 5 percents immigrants not more.
We must throw away the overimmigration.
We must take back the citizenship of people who don't belong to our ethny.

Exactly, Trisha!

The Melting Pot and Multiculti are opposites.

Here is a very typical example of multiculti from Denmark:

In other European cities, it is not much different.

We always think of the Balkans;)

Cologne is just such an example, where Turks live in their own quarters. They never have to leave it because all shops, language, etc. are Turkish.

Soon, they will have a mosque at the entrance to that district with 165 feet high minarets and lots of Turkish flags. In Turkish mosques, they have flags inside. How ever heard of a church which flies the national flag?

I consider Turks as the 5th column here. Erdogan never fails to tell them that they are "Turks"...

Very good, to the point post!

What annoys me extremely is that Turks in Germany-by word-of-mouth propaganda--call themselves "The New Jews of Germany".

They never miss an opportunity to remind us of Hitler (denying vigirously any guilt about their own atrocities, viz. the Armenian genocide).
