WHAT A RACIST, BIGOTED, NATIVIST: “Republican Bush says multiculturalism wrong for US.” Wow. Just wow. Doesn’t this guy know that no culture is superior to any other culture? How dare he demand others subjugate their culture in favor of ours? For someone who wants to lead a nation of immigrants, he sure has a funny way of showing it. For the good of the Party, let’s run him out on a rail.
Just kidding, folks…that’s sarcasm, ICYMI. Calm down. Bush actually makes a valid and important point here. It reminds me of the wisdom of Jim Bennett, author of The Anglosphere Challenge: Why the English-Speaking Nations Will Lead the Way in the Twenty-First Century. One of Bennett’s greatest truisms is the idea that democratic government cannot long endure in an environment of permissive immigration and multicuturalism (i.e., a culture-wide resistance to assimilation). Indeed, no two of these three things can survive the addition of the third. As Americans concerned for our constitutional republic and “little d” democratic government, we should look upon what is happening in Europe and their complete inability to assimilate migrants with extreme interest, for it is a case in point for Bennett’s arguments. Bush can read them here. He might learn something important about today’s immigration debate.
