The Bitter Aftertaste of Multiculturalism

When Europe starts to divide its territory with barbed wire to stop refugees, it begs the question: what happened to the idea of peoples living together in harmony under the banner of multiculturalism? Cohabitation is not working out and Europe is sending the refugees back. 

So what exactly is multiculturalism? Here is one definition: «Multiculturalism is a policy aimed at developing and preserving cultural differences in a single country and the world as a whole. Within the framework of multiculturalism, various cultural groups exercise collective rights and can act as a single subject in the sphere of politics, culture and education».

This definition of multiculturalism shows that those who came up with the idea based it on notions of relations between peoples that are just too idealistic.

But perhaps the doctrine of multiculturalism was an act of provocation aimed at undermining the foundations of a united Europe from the very beginning. Surely its authors were aware that the hatred towards Europeans that has accumulated over hundreds of years of colonialism has not disappeared and that the decline of Christian culture in Europe has turned into an anti-culture and any kind of peaceful coexistence is doomed to failure.

The European Romani affair seems to be rather indicative.

The ‘Romani problem’ came to light after Slovakia, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic and Romania joined the EU and opened its borders. All told, this area of Europe is home to up to ten million Romani (Roma) who, more often than not, are at the very bottom of the social ladder. Naturally, they saw the opening of the borders as their chance and rushed into Old Europe. This particularly affected France, which saw thousands of Roma flocking in from Romania.

The reality of life in France, however, forced many Roma to resort to begging and stealing. After this, they began to be deported back to Romania. And what did the Roma do then? They returned to France, of course, as part of new caravan camps.

The same crackdown on Roma has been going on throughout the whole of the Schengen area. They have even been evicted from the cradle of European democracy – Great Britain – to Ireland.

Europe did not learn from the Roma experience, however, and decided to try again by initially opening its doors to refugees from troubled Muslim countries.

What came of that is well known.

It turns out that many migrants regard ‘indigenous’ Europeans as second-class people.

It also turns out that many Muslim men view mini-skirts on women as a statement of their lost virginity, a danger signal for families, and a risk of bad inheritance. Those Europeans who have had the chance to visit Iran know how pure-blooded Persians are. In comparison, British aristocracy looks genetically disadvantaged to put it mildly. To newcomers, ‘multicultural’ Europe with its prostitutes and sexual minorities comes across as a corrupt place and their reaction to this materialised on New Year’s Eve in Cologne.

In addition, Europe has not always been that kind to its new residents. As a result, the refugees have responded with aggression.

What kind of multiculturalism can we talk about? Faced with a force it has been unable to overcome, Europe has started pushing the new arrivals into the hands of the Turkish authorities.

This is the perfect time to recall the barbed wire that the countries of Europe have started to wrap around their borders separating them from the refugees. 

Barriers are not just being erected along the Hungarian and Austrian borders, they are also appearing in the minds of Europeans.

The saddest thing for the failed multiculturalists is the realisation that terrorism is a result of their own policy. After all, huge amounts of people in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Somalia and other countries have been driven from their homelands by the descendants of European colonisers. Terrorism will always grow where societies have been destroyed.

So what can we expect following the agreement signed between the EU and Turkey on the refugee problem? Those creating the new political map of the Greater Middle East will continue pushing new hordes of unfortunates from their homelands, these will try and seek refuge in Europe, the Europeans will forcibly return them to Turkey, Europe’s image as a bulwark of human rights will crumble, and the information war that the West launched against Russia under the slogan of human rights will vanish into the void where it belongs.
