Trojan Horse Debate: We Were Wrong, All Cultures Are Not Equal

Allison Pearson, Telegraph (London), June 11, 2014

If I have learnt one thing working with children as a teacher, a volunteer and, more recently, a parent, it’s that what children want above all else is to fit in. The desire not to be different must be hard-wired, so urgent is the need of your average nine-year-old to have the same pencil case as every other nine-year-old. Individuality, much prized in adult life, is abhorred by our conservative juniors, who crave acceptance as the thirsty crave water. “Fitting in” is braided into the DNA of every child, regardless of creed or colour. When the deep, resonant bell of human evolution tolls, it says: “Belong, belong, belong.”

Integrating children into a new society, then, should not present too much of a problem. A football, some Panini World Cup stickers to trade, One Direction, Harry Potter, 97 episodes of Friends, especially the one where Rachel has a baby: common interests for youngsters are not hard to find. So how have we ended up with a situation where so many Muslims are adrift from the mainstream? Why this scandal in Birmingham where five overwhelmingly Muslim schools, some until recently judged to be outstanding, are to be put into special measures because they have sought to inculcate ideas that are repellent to this country?

Let me quote Myriam Francois-Cerrah, a writer and Muslim convert, who told Channel 4 News on Tuesday that she rejected calls by the Prime Minister and Michael Gove, the Education Secretary, for schools to promote British values. “In many ways, the problem is creating a hierarchy of cultures when you say you need to promote British values,” she objected. “What does that say to children in a classroom whose heritage harks from outside the British Isles? It says this country has superior moral values and you are coming from some backward culture whose values you … must not consider equal to our own.”

Funnily enough, that’s exactly what we are saying, Myriam. Spot on! A Muslim girl who winds up in Bolton or Luton should thank her lucky stars she doesn’t live in Sudan–or Pakistan, where, only last month, a woman was stoned to death by her family for the crime of marrying a man of whom they disapproved. Farzana Parveen’s father explained: “I killed my daughter as she had insulted all of our family by marrying a man without our consent, and I have no regret over it.”

Are British values superior to Mr Parveen’s? I do hope so.

Unfortunately, the great lie underpinning the creed of multiculturalism, as spouted by Francois‑Cerrah and her ilk, is that all cultures are “equally valid”. Well, patently, they’re not. The reason irate Pakistani patriarchs are not chucking bricks at their errant daughters in the Birmingham Bull Ring is because Britain has a basically uncorrupt police force, a robust judiciary and an enlightened, hard-won system of liberal values that regards women and girls as equals, not third-class citizens.

But instead of standing up to barbarism and ignorance, too often we have looked away in embarrassment or fear. How many teachers have averted their gaze when 13-year-old Muslim girls suddenly disappear from the classroom to be taken “home” for a forced marriage, because this would present unwelcome evidence that some cultures are less valid than others?

How many health professionals in Bradford are concerned, but never say so, that intermarriage in the Muslim community–75 per cent of Pakistanis in the city are married to their first cousin–is causing babies to be born blind, deaf and with other disabilities? Back in 2008, when Labour environment minister Phil Woolas said that British Pakistanis were fuelling the rate of birth defects, he was slapped down by Downing Street, with a spokesman for prime minister Gordon Brown saying the issue was not one for ministers to comment on. Government after government has filed this thorny issue in “The Too Difficult Box”, the title of a timely new book edited by former Cabinet minister Charles Clarke.

This was all so predictable. Back in the summer of 1981, I was working in a primary school in west London where the children were dizzy with excitement about Prince Charles and Lady Di. The royal wedding was a great unifying event, but there was one group of pupils who were not allowed to fit in. The little Muslim girls did not wear cool, gingham-checked dresses in the heat like the others. Instead, they were dressed in the winter uniform–a polo neck and tunic worn over strictly non-uniform trousers and thick tights. As far as I could tell, no teacher dared challenge this clear breach of school rules. In a similar spirit, it was accepted that the Muslim girls could not attend the weekly swimming lesson.

When a trip was planned to Hampton Court, the children were told they would be seeing Henry VIII’s bed. Somehow, the word “bed”, coupled with the humongously horny Henry, set off alarm bells among Muslim parents, who withdrew their sons and daughters from the outing. This irrational boycott was tolerated. I remember thinking how awful and sad it was that liberal, white teachers didn’t stick up for the Muslim children’s right to play a full part in the life of their country.

It made me angry when I was practically a child myself, and it makes me even angrier now, 30 years on, thinking of the lost decades when good people did nothing to prevent the toxic situation outlined this week by the chief inspector of schools. Music and dancing banned in a primary school because they are un-Islamic. Muslim pupils not allowed to study Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing because it shows young people falling in love and marrying. A preacher who believes homosexuals should be stoned to death invited to address an assembly–in a British school in a British town, forsooth. Children as young as six told that Western women are “white prostitutes”, if you please.

Sir Michael Wilshaw, the Ofsted chief, said that hardline Islamists wanted to impose a “narrow, faith-based ideology” on schools in Birmingham, though clearly the problem is not confined to one city.Now Bradford, Luton and east London are being investigated.

And still our politicians will not face up to what multiculturalism has unleashed: one of the biggest peacetime challenges ever faced by Britain. Nick Clegg, at his most ineffectually Fotherington-Thomas, says he is “sure that all parents will support a wide curriculum”. As if. The promised “dawn-raid” school inspections, which will not give schools time to stage Christian lessons to fool Ofsted inspectors, are too little, too late.

Growing suggestions that all faith schools should be banned because some Muslims cannot be trusted to prepare their children for life in contemporary society are simply outrageous. Why should Catholic, Jewish and Church of England schools, which provide a terrific, disciplined learning environment for millions of children, be forced to cease their good work and shut down? Why must the tolerant be made to carry the can for the intolerable?

The crisis in Birmingham made me look up Ray Honeyford. The headmaster of a school in Bradford, Honeyford published an article highly critical of multiculturalism around the same time that I was wondering why Muslim girls in west London weren’t allowed to learn how to swim. Honeyford was damned as a racist and forced to take early retirement, but how prophetic his words seem now. The alarmed headmaster referred to a “growing number of Asians whose aim is to preserve as intact as possible the values of the Indian subcontinent within a framework of British social and political privilege”. Honeyford questioned the wisdom of the local education authority in allowing such practices as the withdrawal of children from school for months at a time, in order to go “home” to Pakistan, on the grounds that this was appropriate to the children’s native culture.

“Those of us working in Asian areas,” he wrote, “are encouraged, officially, to ‘celebrate linguistic diversity’–ie, applaud the rapidly mounting linguistic confusion in these growing number of city schools in which British-born Asian children begin their mastery of English by being taught in Urdu.”

Ray Honeyford died in 2012, so he didn’t live to see the Leeds secondary school where every single pupil, including a handful of white ones, is being taught English as a foreign language. He didn’t need to see it. He knew it would happen, and what the cost would be, and his warnings were shouted down or put away in the Too Difficult Box.

I think the battle we must fight now really has very little to do with sincere religious belief. It’s about social control, repression, misogyny and cruelty. The battle is about Kamaljit, a 14-year-old girl I once taught, who chided me when I read the class a story about snakes in India, like the good, clueless multiculturalist that I was. “Please, Miss, we don’t like that stuff,” she said. “We’re English. We like ice skating.”

We have to expose Muslim children to as wide a range of experiences as possible so they will feel the gravitational pull of British values. If a Devon primary school recently criticised by Ofsted for not being multicultural enough (yes, really) can arrange a horizon-broadening trip to the inner city, then surely it’s time that Birmingham and Bradford came to Hereford and Hampshire. It was Rodgers and Hammerstein who observed in South Pacific: “You’ve got to be taught to hate and fear / You’ve got to be taught from year to year / It’s got to be drummed in your dear little ear / You’ve got to be carefully taught. / You’ve got to be taught before it’s too late / Before you are six or seven or eight / To hate all the people your relatives hate / You’ve got to be carefully taught.”

But there is another song, and a better one, and children will learn it if they are only given the chance: Belong, belong, belong.

    Never, even if they tried very hard, will non-Whites be able to be us. They can learn, learn and learn, but they will only be able to become a funny imitation of ourselves. I do not believe that non-Whites should even try to be us, neither do I believe they should be in our lands. I know another mantra for all those non-Whites: Deport, deport, deport.

    • LHathaway

      You may be absolutely right, they will never be your equal. But we’ve designed such societies of such complete efficiency (that only whites could design, of course) these societies, this culture, will keep functioning after you are gone. So really, there’s nothing to worry about. Unless you are worried about whites, and not these supermen who never have anything to worried about. That’s how superior they are.

      • Guest

        You may try to put Whites down, but all of you who hated Whites will suffer at the destruction of the White race. That makes me smile.

      • 1stworlder

        South Africa Zimbabwe & Detroit prove you wrong. The free houses Habitat for Humanity gave blacks in New Orleans after Katrina are falling apart after no maintenance & bad treatment.

        • I replaced the shower heads here. One Xcel gave my mother for free and after I installed it here – she didn’t want it – I contacted them and later reached the original provider. I paid $5.99 for the second one. I was going to donate the original shower heads to HfH, but now they’re going straight into the trash.

          • 1stworlder

            You might want to keep it the trend it to go to lower flow showerheads and you might not be able to buy a better one if Obama has his way.

          Who will run things when Whites are gone? Mestizos who fled their own Mestizo countries? LOL White systems work because they are maintained by Whites with traditional White heritage and values, dependent upon physiological and psychological responses to stimuli which are produced by inherited combinations of glandular secretions, nerves, organs, and other traits genetically balanced over thousands of generations of evolution to form our distinct racial character. In thirty years everyone still stuck in the formerly White countries will be sitting around eating cat food while those who can will be jumping on planes to find some new place to escape to and re-consolidate their resources, productivity, and power.

      • Diana Moon Glampers

        You are incorrect. The societies and culture whites have built will not continue on.
        It is utter non-white conceit to think that anyone else can maintain it simply because it is inherited. There will be societies and cultures without whites, but they will be what non-whites build. Where there are Africans, there will be African society. England full of Africans will not be “Brittish”. Nonsense.

        Any non-whites who wish for the end if white people are utter fools. Non-whites living among whites have better lives than those who live among their own kind.

        • LHathaway

          “It is utter non-white conceit to think that anyone else can maintain it simply because it is inherited”.

          Everyone is conceited, aren’t they? In addition, when they act on or display conceit, they have the addition buoyancy of doing so as part of effort at ‘fighting racism’.

          I still think you’re incorrect. I’m pretty sure whites have built societies, of such great stability (owing to their great superiority) these societies will continue to function quite well long after whites are gone. They will still exist, anyway (not whites but their former societies). With the rate of exponential growth in artificial intelligence, these formerly white societies will achieve new, grand heights of efficiency never before seen in human history, even though the non-whites who make up these societies, will be, by and larger, dumber than a proverbial box of rocks, and unable to even build a credible outhouse, as you would say. I guess you will have lost out to someone dumber than a box of rocks. What’s Even dumber than something dumber than a box of rocks? What do they call whites, anyway?

          • wretchedwhiterabbit

            Who will run things when Whites are gone? Mestizos who fled their own Mestizo countries? LOL Because, things are going so well where they are already the majority. Just LOOK at Southern California! White systems work because they are maintained by Whites with traditional White heritage and values, dependent upon physiological and psychological responses to stimuli which are produced by inherited combinations of glandular secretions, nerves, organs, and other traits genetically balanced over thousands of generations of evolution to form our distinct racial character.

            “Whites with traditional White heritage and values”

            Screw your values and heritage. You know what someone following your values and heritage is? A loser whose country has been taken over by someone else. Someone else less intelligent than the supposed least intelligent people on Earth. That’s the legacy you’ve left and that’s what will be remembered of your heritage. Unless you happen to be over 150 years, old, that’s what you’ve left behind. And please, don’t tell us what was so great about 150 years ago. . . What was it Sam Dickson said at this year’s AmRen conference? The ‘Good old days’ some talk about were anti-white, too.

            Puffing your chest out about how good you are or have been doesn’t seem to be helping you. You’d be on the USS Titanic saying, ‘The ships been running well so far. We just need to bail more water’. I somehow doubt praying to your ancestors will be successful for you.

            It’s time for something new. And I hope and pray it has nothing to do with your values and your heritage. Maybe it’s time for someone new.

    • JSS

      What makes “belonging” meaningful is belonging to a specific and unique group. Nobody in reality wants to belong in a group that is so meaningless that it has no standards or heritage and will take any troglodyte fresh off the boat from dirkastan. It used be understood that belonging to something special meant earning it and investing in it. If something is so cheap that it belongs to everyone then it is by definition pretty much worthless.

      • Guest

        If you are born into a family, you belong to that family. If you are born into a race, you belong to that race. There is no way to escape this reality. White liberals (a.k.a. White race traitors) may wish otherwise, but they cannot undo reality. They are working against their own genetic interests, thus directly hurting themselves.

        • JSS

          Your right that you belong to your race and family, but that membership implies duty and sacrifice. Races and families take care of their own, it isn’t the place for outsiders to do so. That is what Whites have been indoctrinated into forgetting. Sacrificing on behalf of others that obviously hate you is treason.

          • LovelyNordicHeidi

            Our ancestors suffered, fought and died for their families, and their race. We are here because of our ancestors. It is foolish to deviate from the old ways. Self-sacrifice for us and us alone is the command that has been expressed by our ancestors’ deeds.

        • TruthBeTold

          If you are born into a family, you belong to that family. If you are
          born into a race, you belong to that race. There is no way to escape
          this reality.

          There’s a division of social psychology called ‘Social Science’.

          They come up with all kinds of ways to test human behavior and interaction.

          The problem is that they extrapolate conclusions about experiments and put them into practice in the real world.

          One classic example is where they took to sets boys in can set them up in rival camps.

          The experimenters then did destructive damage in each camp and the plants in the camps blamed the rival camp.

          They found it was easy to manipulate boys into hating each other.

          They they created a group crisis, the bridge to leave the camp was down, and they had to bring the two groups together to rebuild the bridge.

          They did and in the end, all the animosity was gone.

          WE are the lab rats. THEY are running experiments on us to see if they can find a way for us to come to love each other.

          It’s called ‘Contact Theory’ (I think).

          The idea is that people who live in any kind of community will likely become friends because they have close contact as opposed to the becoming friends with people they will never meet in another town.

          We are being forced together to try to create a Universal Brotherhood where we stop seeing our differences and start seeing our common humanity.

          Only THIS isn’t a controlled experiment. It’s the real world and people who are radically different from each other do not naturally try to become friends.

          The theory works in experiments and when people are similar but it completely falls apart in the real world.

          In the real world, familiarity breeds contempt.

          • David Ashton

            There was a time when sociology and social psychology were objective and reasonable, e.g. Pitirim Sorokin, Don Martindale, Kimball Young &c. In the USA the big changes accompanied the desegregation propaganda of the sixties.

          • HamletsGhost

            Actually, those discipline haven’t been reasonable since the 1920s. When Boas captured the main commanding intellectual citadel at Columbia, he undermined what could have been a truly scientific discipline into cultural Marxist propaganda.

          • David Ashton

            Social and cultural anthropology, followed later slowly by biological anthropology. Kevin MacDonald’s section in “CoC” on Boas is one of the best chapters, and the cunning promotion by Boas of his disciples was confirmed some time ago by an unexpected article in “Patterns of Prejudice”. The corruption of “social sciences” in general has been a post-war and especially post-1960s development, with revolutionary emphasis on “race, gender, class”, attacks on IQ measurement, population classification, &c. There have been dissident voices en route, such as Stanislav Andreski, Ronald Fletcher, A James Gregor, &c.

          • Human-Stupidity.com

            Well, there is something like real prejudice, if the Irish hate the British. There are no intrinsic major differences, other then smaller cultural differences.

            But if you are in contact with a group of people who clearly are 8 times more criminal and violent then your fellow citizens, and considerably less intelligent, but entitled to the same privileges for lower performance, then contact will not help to breed friendship and understanding.

      • Ron Cheaters

        Kinda like amnesty in the US and citizenship in the UK. For some life is what you can give. But for most, especially those who are jeleous, its what can I take.

        But to give it away implies it has no value and such is the way it is treated.

  • The libtard author of this piece laments that muzzies aren’t being integrated into the life of Britain. I lament that they were allowed into Britain in the first place and that they aren’t being sent back via “Operation Dune C**n” or somesuch. It’s the difference between a libtard and a race realist.

    The fact that we have nonwhites migrating from the third world, ostensibly for a “better life,” is more than enough proof that not all cultures are equal. If all cultures were equal, there wouldn’t be any need for migration.

      Be careful now. In western civilization stating the obvious is known as “hate.”

    • 1stworlder

      The real white supremacists are the people who risk life and limb to get to a white nation.

    This article also appeared in The Guardian, the marxist propaganda rag that has pushed black and brown immigration since the Ship of Shame, the Windermere brought the black plague to England in 1948.

    One race, one realm, one ruler It truly is as simple as that.

    I am surprised this good lady as not been thrown in prison for the above article. Trying to make Muslims British? What an insult to Islam. Taking Muslims on a class trip to Henry VIII palace, why? He wasn’t THEIR king, he was yours and they are not you. The only thing they need to be shown is the door, trap or otherwise.

    Face facts, you will soon be living in the Ignited Kingdom.

    • Ron Cheaters

      I felt she was holding back too. The last paragraph felt like she was forced to say it.

    • Emblematical

      Exactly. It’s basic human nature – nobody venerates somebody else’s ancestors.

  • Einsatzgrenadier

    Teddy Roosevelt once said:

    There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism…. The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities.

    That was said a long time ago when men were governed by common sense.

    Multiculturalism is about divide and conquer. It perpetuates the status quo by forcing everyone to walk on eggshells. It makes politicians rich and powerful. Multiculturalism is the perfect weapon of mass destruction when in the hands of a sinister managerial elite and fueled by the oxygen of massive third world immigration.

  • LHathaway

    “It says this country (Britain) has superior moral values and you are coming from some backward culture whose values you … must not consider equal to our own.”

    Maybe something changed after the 9-11 attacks but this idea, and much of this article, is completely different than anything I’m familiar with in reality. It’s completely backwards. Nearly every person of color on this Earth, and the majority of whites, know that people of color are morally superior to whites and the racist, colonial, imperialistic, hierarchical, exploitative, cultures they create, and only whites create, and have foisted on the Ghandi and MLK rest of the world, throughout history, past, present and on into the future. This is the multicultural education students in the US face. Any other ideas would be ‘insensitive’. What exact ‘British standards’ are being promoted by this author? As I mention, perhaps ‘9-11’ changed things, somewhat, but I just wonder by how much?

    • UncleSham

      Yes. Kill all the white man. Then the world will know peace and happiness.

  • Steven Barr

    To be honest, although I hate the islamisation of this country, I admire the fct that Muslims reject the “British values” of unrestricted abortion, homosexual marriage, contraception for 13 year olds and rampant alcoholism and drug abuse. They certainly aren’t my values.

      Now Now Now. We wouldn’t want to hurt any of our wittle wiberal fwiends feewings here on Amren.

      • M.

        There’s nothing hurtful about what he said. Those are typical and well-known conservative positions. We liberals don’t care about what people do with their private parts or in their bedrooms; conservative do. Let’s just agree to disagree.

        Let’s just focus on what unites us: being race-realists and keeping our countries white.

        • Diana Moon Glampers

          Nobody cares what people do in their bedrooms. I care what they push on my children. The problem is that liberals are never, ever content to keep it in the bedroom. Never content with freedom to do as you please, always gotta have official approval and promotion of their perversions.

          • I can wrap my mind and also tolerate the people who are him likes him and her likes her.

            What I can’t stand about people of those proclivities, to the extent they exhibit these traits:

            1. Their paranoia and persecution complex.

            2. The fact that you just can’t be tolerate of Gs, Ls and Bs anymore, that they have to bring along in tow all the other freak show letters in their grand acronym, and if you criticize Ts (mentally ill), then you might as well want to kill all Gs, Ls and Bs.

            3. That they have politically thrown in with our racial enemies, even as doing so at first glance seems anathema to their interests.

          • M.

            They have thrown in with our racial enemies because the pro-white tend to be extremely hostile to them. There was a commenter here, “saxosun”, who was a lesbian I think. She was with our cause. But she received so much grief and insults about her folk that I don’t see her here anymore. What have the bigoted commenters here gained from throwing all those insults at her? You think that made her straight maybe? I don’t think so.

            When you keep calling them “freak show letters” and “mentally ill”, what else would you expect them do to? They will never join your team. They will hate your guts and do whatever they can to undermine your causes. I wouldn’t be surprised if ‘saxosun’ has joined an anti-racist organization by now.

            Homosexuality is so obviously not a choice*. I feel disgust at the mere thought of touching a man, let alone loving one or sleeping with one. I could never choose to be gay. But at the end of the day, they’re not hurting anyone. They’re mostly law-abiding tax-paying citizens, many of whom I’m sure are sympathetic with our cause.

            So let’s please stop with that whole “gay propaganda”. It’s not a religion, nor is it a school of thought. You either are or you aren’t. Their behavior may feel icky sometimes (for evolutionary reasons). But it’s just that, icky. And ‘icky’ is not synonymous with immoral as long as they’re not hurting anyone. And when you oppose something for no good reasonable reason, then you’re just a bigot.

          • UncleSham

            The fact that its not a choice (even though sometimes it is, especially for bi-women) is what makes it a mental illness. Also, AIDS.

          • M.

            “The fact that it’s not a choice makes it a mental illness.”

            No respectable psychological or psychiatric association classifies it as such.

          • UncleSham

            I know. Just like no respectable journalist or politician claims that the white race has the right to exist. All psychological and psychiatric associations classified homosexuality as a mental illness until the ’70s when they were infiltrated by left-wing radicals.

          • M.

            So did the U.N.? And pretty much every faculty of medicine in the world?

            If something is an illness, that means it can be treated. Being gay is like being straight: you just are or you aren’t.

          • UncleSham

            Not every illness can be treated, sometimes you’re just stuck with it. I have personally known people who have gone back and forth between being straight and being gay. It is by no means an absolute. Just to be clear, I don’t care what people do in private as long as they are consenting adults. I just think the entire concept of same-sex marriage is completely ridiculous. Marriage and homosexuality have existed side by side for 5000 years and yet no one up until about 30 years ago even thought of same-sex marriage as a possibility. That’s just not what marriage is for. Its the equivalent of an outspoken atheist demanding to be Baptized just because he wants to fit in by having a priest throw water at him. It makes no sense and it demeans the event for everyone else.

            But that’s what it is, just the same.

            Look, I’m not a liberal in the American sense. I’m more of a libertarian. A patriotic libertarian. Well-guarded frontiers on the outside, liberal on the inside.

            As for the “pushing on children” and “official approval”, I sense you’re referring to homosexuality. The only reason that liberals are “pushing” that all homo thing is that there are still people who can’t leave homos marry whomever they want. They want to marry, let them marry for God’s sakes! Getting all bigoted on them won’t make them turn heterosexual. In fact, nothing will. If one is willing to be gay in Saudi Arabia or Iran, then chances are it’s not a choice.

            There’s no rational reason for you not to allow them to marry. That’s why they keep busting our ears with it. But the tide is turning, as polls indicate. And it’s a good thing. I’m personally sick of that issue. We have have other fish to fry.

            While I can respect your opinion, I cannot agree. Also, I am not driven by bigotry. I am not at all bothered by homosexuality. I have a few gay friends and it doesn’t bother me a bit. But I am a mother. Of sons. And although I don’t feel like debating the issues around it, some small boys absolutely will suffer terribly because of “marriage equality”. And no child should suffer so that adults can feel their preferences are legitimized.

      The right ideals for the wrong reason.

    • Katherine McChesney

      Interesting considering they are ideals of mass murderers, rapists and pedophiles.

      • LHathaway

        I think his ‘The right ideas for the wrong reason’ comment was meant to be about the article itself and it’s author. The author has the right idea, but her reasons are to support ‘multiculturalism’ (if not, she wouldn’t have a job). Her reasons don’t include ‘save whites from extinction’ or even living with others who ‘hate’ them. I’m guessing that’s what his ‘The right ideals for the wrong reason’ comment meant. They say sometimes one hears what one wants to hear. . .

    • Sick of it

      Raping little boys doesn’t seem very anti-homosexual to me.

    • JSS

      None of those things you mentioned are actually British values. Those are the values being imposed on them at gunpoint. There is a difference between genuine values and indoctrination. You should also be aware that pedophilia and drug use are very common in Muslim countries.

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      Actually, homosexuality is rampant in Islam. Women are segregated, so Muslim males turn to each other for sexual companionship. But why even stop there? Let’s look at all the other “British values” that Muslims reject, such as not raping prepubescent children, not having sex with animals, not practicing incest with close relatives, not stoning people to death for adultery, and not beating your wife until she’s a bloody pulp. Are those your values too? Go to Somalia or Pakistan if you prefer Muslim values over British.

      • LHathaway

        I’d rather see you go to Somalia or Pakistan so you can do further research on these Muslim cultures you’ve ‘informed’ us so much about.

    • tlk244182

      I dont consider those to be British values, but rather the results of cultural sabotage. Rather, those are anti-values, and the group pushing them is treasonous.

  • TruthBeTold

    They take no action to assimilate.

    So WHY do they come to our non-Muslim countries?

    Because they want to force US to become THEM!!!

    Our leaders have to know this is what’s going on!

    • 1stworlder

      Everything but the benefits office enrages them. The best they could do in their homelands is mud huts. If oil wasn’t squirting out of the ground there wouldn’t be a muslim nation with running water.

    • LHathaway

      That sounds quite a bit like a very scary and paranoid SF movie. The original ‘Invasion of the Body Snatchers’ to be exact. What a great movie, that Was meant to be a metaphor for propaganda taking over the mind? The first sequel to it was good as well.

      Those movies are so much like real life. Everyone in the movie knows there is some terrible threat, but the local sheriff and government are completely oblivious. So paranoid and scary. So real to today?

      Sometimes the local sheriff listens. . sometimes he doesn’t.

      I doubt Obama is going to say anything anytime soon.

  • Evette Coutier

    This article is a joke. It ends with you have to be taught to hate. Bunk. Hate is a natural emotion that grows in response to negative environmental experiences. It is difficult to teach hate because hate is an emotion. It is not an academic study. Taught hate is superficial. Deep seated hatred comes from negative experiences.

    • LHathaway

      Taught hate can be just as effective as the real thing. Perhaps more so, for it is sanctioned by the larger society. At least, hatred of whites, is.

      • Evette Coutier

        Not a chance. You’ll have a deeper hatred of someone who you watch violently beat your best friend until their are crippled than you could ever be taught.

        • LHathaway

          One could say the person of color that beat your Friend was fueled by hate. And it would be a good argument to make (although, no doubt a hateful argument – since a white supremacist or white advocate would be making it). But I’m not sure the person who beat your friend did so out of hatred. Probably, on some level, they enjoyed it. Blame it on capitalism, or our primal origins and evolution. It may not have been not hate for them. They are often laughing while committing these crimes. Perhaps there is some uncaring or disdain, but it might not be hate? Perhaps it was a matter of ‘projection’ no one ever protected them so they felt a need to degrade others so they would feel better, somehow?

          To be more provincial about it, hate is defined as something that whites feel or do. I think that’s the modern definition of hate. Hate has been turned into a noun, actually.

  • italian guy

    Conservatives around the Western World are always lamenting that non-Whites don’t “assimilate”, well I’m always happy when I read this kind of stuff, the worst kind of invaders are the one integrated, that act White and try to have children with Whites and see themselves as Germans, French or Australians.
    When these people will realize that it’s about identity and not about “hate” and other liberal newspeak?

    • UncleSham

      And when these people fail to assimilate, it is always the fault of white liberals. We can never blame non-whites for their own shortcomings. Liberals blame conservatives and conservatives blame liberals.

    This is the problem I have with allowing this non-White immigration into White countries. The author is complaining that:”the Muslim children’s right to play a full part in the life of their country” was denied by their parents because it involved Henry VIII’s bed. Why does no one understand that, Britain’s monarchs, Britain’s history, Britain’s cultural celebrations, are only important to the British people? Nobody from Jamaica, or Pakistan, or India cares about this. And why should they? If I were to be transported to China, and my children were in school and taught about nothing other than the glories of Chinese dynastys, and they didn’t relate, well, I wouldn’t expect them to. My God, these are Chinese people! They have NOTHING to do with who me or my children are as American/European. I absolutely would not relate! My children would not relate. Yet, we expect people who have been encouraged, whatever, from all over the world to move into White countries, and expect them to fit in, adopt our cultures, revere our Founding Fathers who look nothing like them, and in fact, come from a completely different place philosophically, religiously, and in everyway you can think of. On the other hand, I HATE seeing India Indians, or whatevers who reside in this country and are citizens referring to America’s Founding Fathers as “our” Founding Fathers. It sets my blood boiling. My White Founding Fathers are NOT yours! If you must, call them “the Founding Fathers”. Because, no matter what, they will NEVER be yours. Lay claim to Ghandi. DO NOT lay claim to mine.

      They are the real racists because they want to change people from what they’re fundamentally are. Like trying to convince an orangutan that it can be a gorilla because both of them are apes?

      It’s outrageous.

  • freddy_hills

    The author admits a problem with multiculturalism. But, as usual with the left, they believe the answer to the problems they create is more of the same. It’s a mental disorder.

  • Emblematical

    All very well, but they can never take the final logical step can they?
    They can never admit what the only real solution is: Nationalism.

  • MooTieFighter

    We want to live and raise our kids around those most like our own. We only want to share a moral, religious, cultural bond. There is safety in being around those most like us and we share common goals. This is what societies are. This is the exact opposite of what forced multiculturalism is.

  • The English are allowing “barbarism and ignorance” to rape their own young girls.

    Allison Pearson is one of our “better” commentators in Battered Britain. But “we” were not wrong. The ideocrats were.

  • Calufrax

    Remember this article, and the many others like it on AmRen and elsewhere, the next time any of you is tempted to support the Muslim-loving Jobbik- or any of the other diseased elements on the far right who admire Mohammedanism.

  • LHathaway

    I didn’t know that. I had assumed ‘hate’ as a noun is entirely new. Um, Now it’s always used as a noun. . .!

  • Human-Stupidity.com

    looks like the Whites feel the gravitational pull of Muslim culture. They learn to respect that Muslims don’t obey school uniform rules, and more, as described above.

    Muslims, so far, accept that Western women don’t wear veils, and, so far, don’t punish them with lashes or stoning.
