[M]ulticulturalism is a form of political and historical ignorance. The multiculturalist is an ahistorical fool, who confuses the cultural periphery with the core. It is the bastard child of Marxism. –Victor Davis Hansen
I always thought multiculturalism was just a great scam for minorities to ignore values like hard work, delay of gratification, and sacrifice. They would find themselves in unfavorable circumstances and then blame the successful (usually Caucasians who inculcated those values) for their plight. So Americans gave them bilingual education, welfare, and quasi amnesty from immigration law. Since multiculturalism means we are all the same, why should they have to learn English and adopt values that are foreign to their lifestyle?
