KOC: Multiculturalism Explained

Yes, my three-inch tall homuncular doppelganger is back in another webisode of PJTV’s Klavan on the Culture.  Listen closely because today my little buddy will be explaining why we have to be tolerant of murderers, jihadis, rapists, thugs…  even the French…  if we want to make it in the wonderful world of multiculturalism.  Okay, maybe not the French.

Justin Folk – a man wanted in many cultures – does the visuals.

    Overton Window Vs. Empire of Lies. Read both this week. Glenn Beck only has better blurbs. Empire of Lies beats OW over the head and kicks it while its down.

    How marvellously prescient. In Australia we’re having the exact same debate on multiculturalism.

    And it ain’t pretty.

    It’s certainly a 3 cocktail problem.

    Nick says: Actually, we’re not having a debate – our socialist-green government is telling us that they stand by multiculturalism and anyone who disagrees with them is racist.

    Centaurs always creeped me out. Even as a child I failed to find them “magical.” I only saw them as the product of some disturbed mind. My disgust concerning them was one of the reasons I couldn’t get into “Narnia.” (The bouncer stopped me at the wardrobe when I made a disparaging remark about centaurs.) Does this make me racist? Or speciesist? Or… what? What are centaurs anyway? A subculture? Is it a an alternative lifestyle?

    Now as an adult what creeps me out is multiculturalism. How odd to see both creepy phenomena in one place. Klavan has been monitoring my thoughts, apparently.

    On a serious note: What really grates my cookies about multiculturalism is that a primitive guy from the other side of the world can live in my neighborhood and have different rights than I do. He can beat his wife and get away with it because it’s part of his culture. I can’t even use the word “beat” in the same sentence with “wife” because it can be construed as violent. OK, so I exaggerate to illuminate.

    One example that isn’t an exaggeration is that a Mexican citizen can live here in the USA and provide falsified docments every time he applies for a job, but do I get to falsify government documents? No. I have to save every little receipt for 7 years because, yes, I may be an illustrator but it looks suspicious if I claim to have spent eleven dollars on some felt pens and I don’t have a receipt.

    And we KNOW Muslims don’t go in for the gay thing, so we just don’t talk about it. But can I make a disparaging (though funny) crack about homosexuals? No? Well, I could back in the 1970s! So how come the guy next door to me gets to live his entire life in the 6th century, but I can’t live mine in the 1970s? (The music was sure better!)

    I grew up in San Diego, so whenever I encounter two Hispanics chattering to each other in Spanish, I always say (in Spanish), “Please speak English. When I lived in your country, I always spoke Spanish in public.” They always say they don’t speak English very well. I say, “Then why not go back to your country, learn English, apply for a worker visa, and return? And then, when I see you out front of Home Depot, I’ll hire you.” Then I leave the 7-11 with my Big Gulp, problem solved. Or I call ICE. Whichever.

    I especially liked your postscript observation on moral relativism. So much that I highlighted it at my blog as “Moral Relativism Explained” : http://pascalfervor.blogspot.com/2011/02/koc-moral-relativism-explained.html

    Excerpt Ask yourself: “Would my being murdered be hateful to me?”
    In most instances your answer will be “Hell yes!”

    That’s a fairly sound way of putting what is right and what is wrong in perspective.

    So in the UK, the Mecca of multiculturalism & equal rights for all, we found this week how far that belief really goes.

    “In a landmark judgment, handed down this afternoon (28 Feb), the High Court has suggested that Christians with traditional views on sexual ethics are unsuitable as foster carers, and that homosexual ‘rights’ trump freedom of conscience in the UK.
    The summary contained in the judgment sends out the clear message that Christian ethical beliefs are potentially harmful to children. Today’s judgment strongly affirms homosexual rights over freedom of conscience and leaves the Johns currently unable to foster a child as desired, despite their proven track record as foster parents. There now appears to be nothing to stop the increasing bar on Christians who wish to adopt or foster children but who are not willing to compromise their beliefs.”


    I have been wondering . . .

    Homosexuals can adopt children.

    Muslims can adopt children.

    Hindus, Buddhists, Mormons, even film actors are allowed but a Christian couple who will live-out their faith are denied.

    O my!

    What now dear man?

    What now?
