    Multiculturalism is under attack in many countries today....because it simply is not working....here in America we too need to re-affirm the "melting pot"....

    France's President Sarkozy: "If you come to France, you accept to melt into a single community, which is the national community, and if you do not want to accept that, you cannot be welcome in France."

    Britain's Prime Minister Cameron: "under the doctrine of state multiculturalism, we have encouraged different cultures to live separate lives, apart from each other and the mainstream." This had resulted in a lack of national identity in Britain, which had made some Muslims turn to extremist ideology, he said.

    Germany's Merkel, who like her French and British counterparts is centre-right, said in October that efforts toward multiculturalism in her country had "failed, totally."

    Multiculturalism under attack across Europe

    Canada:
    "I'd tell them, this is Canada, and in Canada, we teach music and physical education in our schools. If you don't like it, leave. If you want to live under sharia law, go back to the hellhole country you came from or go to another hellhole country that lives under sharia law," said Kanwar, who is a professor emeritus of sociology at Mount Royal University in Calgary.

    Time to change tune on official multiculturalism

    Multiculturalism is exactly the opposite of encouraging people to live separate lives based on what culture they hail from. The acknowledgement of the validity of the culture that one has left behind and the keeping of traditions that are valued doesn't mean that one should be isolated from the mainstream culture. Topless girls on the second page, hooliganism and prejudice have a much larger influence on radicalism than the acceptance of one's culture. What do you have to be radical against if you live within a cultural bubble unaffected by the mainstream?

    Because TM is a hate-filled, small-minded person.

    So you think topless girls are the big answer to radical groups....? that's pretty shortsighted...and stupid...

    Multiculturalism is NOT "the opposite of encouraging people to live separate lives based on what culture they hail from"....you have that completely backwards.....just look at the muslim communities in Europe for example...

    They are just three religions besides Islam that I thought of off the top of my head.

    ALL religion needs to stay out of politics for a multicultural society to prosper.

    The founders knew it and wanted speration of church and state.

    Eaglebeak, get over it. We are not going back culturally to the 1950s. We are going forward into the 21st century, whether you approve or not.

    She is right , multiculturalism is just that. A culture of many.

    You say it doesnt work which means you want all people divided off and separted.

    That will not work in this modern world.

    What defines a country? Language, borders and a common culture. Multi-culturalism is total horse shit.
