“Multiculturalism is a lie,” so says German Chancellor Angela Merkel after hundreds of thousands of Muslim refugees have inundated her nation. Based on her own policies, no less. And those open border policies won her Time’s “Woman of the Year” title, as well as standing ovations.
But in a recent speech, she stated that multiculturalism is a lie.
“Whoever seeks refuge with us, our laws and traditions must respect and he must learn German. Multiculturalism leads in [to] parallel societies and Multiculturalism thus remains a living lie.” Angela Merkel
Does she sound contradictory? Oh yes. She sees that hundreds of thousands of Muslims flooding into Europe have devastated the countries and created those “parallel societies,” but she still believes that letting them in was the right thing to do based on “European values.”
She also mentioned in that same speech that she will be reducing the number of refugees “noticeably.” The damage is already done, Angela.
Several years ago, Merkel spoke of multiculturalism in Germany as a failure. For some reason either she forgot she said that, or she honestly thinks she can make these refugees conform to German ways.
“Of course the tendency had been to say, ‘let’s adopt the multicultural concept and live happily side by side, and be happy to be living with each other’. But this concept has failed, and failed utterly.” Angela Merkel, 2010
All this “value” talk is seedy at best. Obama uses it too. But “values” must be balanced, not off the charts stupid. The safety and security of a nation and its citizens must be preserved. You cannot open the borders of any country to everyone without security being totally destroyed. The continual attacks in European countries are a case in point.
Of course there are legitimate refugees, who are fleeing at the cost of their lives from countries whose regimes wish to kill them. Obviously. The challenge is to allow them in only after vetting… which is nearly impossible for some areas. The open border policy is deadly, as we have recently seen in San Bernardino and in Boston.
Angela Merkel contradicts herself because down deep she thinks they can be molded into Germans. It is not possible, either for Germany or America. They create parallel societies here as well. Their purpose is to dominate, not assimilate.
