    I don't think Americans (and conservatives) have a problem with multiculturalism, per se. I think they jsut have a problem with it being in their back yard.

    As with all things American, follow the money. We have no problem exporting jobs into foreign labor markets with lower standards and wages for the sake of profit. This brand of "multiculturalism" is seen as good business sense.

    EDIT: I didn't mean to quote anyone in my response, so please forgive that oversight.

    Not very well. The RW bigots and their propaganda of hate have been doing a good job of fear mongering and spreading their racist and bigotted messages of hatred.

    As evidenced by the 99%+ Muslim populations in Islamic countries. As evidenced by the ongoing genocides against Christians in Islamic countries. Yes, those Muslims really know how to practice multiculturalism.

    The hatred between the right and left shows the failure of having multiple cultures in the same place. Race isn't even necessary.

    I've heard liberals defending adults molesting children as young as 9 because that's their culture and we all have to be sensitive to other people's culture because, multiculturalism.

    I was even called a bigot for saying it's always wrong for an adult to molest a 9 year old regardless of your culture.

    If I'm a bigot for saying it's always wrong for an adult to molest a 9 year old then I'm a bigot.

    Ah, but that is because there is no more 'Islam.' The Muslim world now is based on the Western concept of nationstates. The Muslim world allowed dangerous notions of Western ideas to permeate its borders. Thus, we see chaos.

    This was unlike the era of the Islamic Golden Age.

    A case in point being Islamic Spain. Another case in point are the actions of the Crusaders and Saladin in regards to treating minorities in war.

    Indeed, Christian Europe has always been intolerant. Perhaps it's in their genes. :)

    I ti pretty spectacular that you are willing to sacrifice your neighbors children for the sake of being politically correct.

    Racist and bigotted messages of hatred?

    I was completely unaware that Islam was a race.

    I'm certainly not surprised you feel that way. Many of us have no problem living with multiple cultures.

    It's not working at all, and the problem is that other cultures don't want to integrate with us.

    Many of those people who have "no problem living with multiple cultures" spend a lot of time complaining about conservatives and Republicans. That's evidence on how multiculturalism doesn't work. The right and left have very different cultures.

    That's a good point. Some immigrants are coming to the West with no desire to integrate. They are there to colonize, but Westerners keep beating themselves up thinking it's their fault for not being accepting enough.

    It is not, though they are associated with Arabs so there could be some racial overtones.

    So we go from the gnostic claim that there must be messages and hatred and bigotry, to there could be some racial overtones?

    lol

    Islam is not a race. Religion is a choice.

    Well, that is BS. Over the long term, those that integrate are the children and their children who learn and adapt to our culture while at the same time retaining some of their culture from the home country. Some of the most iconic American places one see are the infamous Chinatowns of SF, NY, and Chicago. We have always had enclaves where those of different ethnic and nationality groups will congregate amongst their own, even in the early 18th century. If you go abroad, Americans and other Europeans have done the same thing in those countries as well. Even in London, there are American enclaves with purely American culture.

    Ideology in many a place is not a choice, and that's what Islam has become. An ideology, an ideology trying to become more than just a mere religion.

    Multiculturalism and diversity didn't work out too well for the natives, that's for sure. They fought back against it in a major way. Why would you expect whites to want the same thing to happen to them?

    Stop exaggerating... and please be reasonable. I certainly don't do as you claim; yet, I do know that the NRA essentially LOBBIES for gun manufacturers. They need to stop doing that.

    If you look at the Iroquois confederacy, it did. The confederacy did not last because the nation had to chose between two evils, America and the United Kingdom, who used the Iroquois Confederacy as a pawn in their game.

    In 1990, 90% of people in America were/are whites.


    It was better than India, it was better than Brazil, and it was better than the future America - Brownstan.


    America was not a mixed country, 50% of people in Brazil are blacks. which is better?
