The Multicultural Paradox

Fjordman points out a paradox in multicultural orthodoxy: Indigenous peoples’ resistance to the arrival of people from other parts of the world, with other cultures, was noble in the past, but it’s racist today. The Sioux were justified in trying to defend their homeland—but the Danes and Serbs aren’t.

  1. I’m always amazed at how quickly multi-culturalists fold their agenda when it comes to promoting most any specific European culture. Does the NEA insist, as part of its national agenda, on Italian taught in high schools? German? Our local high school has 5 Spanish classes: zero German classes. When we objected that I cannot enroll my children in my father’s native language, we got “There’s not enough money” for German. I think the multi-culturalists’ assumption is that white=every European culture. (Only a multi-culturalist would so crudely elide the profound differences among cultures.) Thus, to multi-culturalists, there’s no important cultural difference between Ireland and Italy, for example, and no appreciable difference between Portugal and Belgium. “There may be slight differences but there’s no reason for promoting either of those cultures.”
    How much political energy is expended on making certain that Danish or Swedish or French or Polish or Greek culture is “thrown into the cultural mix” so that our children’s lives will be enriched?
    Multiculturalism is, like so many other supposed values, simply a front for eroding and eventually displacing traditional American and European cultures.
