Nigel Farage Blames Paris Attack on ‘Rather Gross Policy of Multi-Culturalism’

Matthew Holehouse, Telegraph, January 8, 2015

Nigel Farage has been accused of exploiting the murders of cartoonists in France for political gain after saying the attack was a result of “a really rather gross policy of multi-culturalism”.

The UK Independence Party leader said there was a “fifth column” living in Britain and France responsible for terrorist attacks. He said the attacks underlined for “controlled immigration policy” with “full checks on everybody” who migrates to Britain.

Theresa May, the Home Secretary, condemned the comments. “It is irresponsible to talk about a fifth column”, she said.

Eric Pickles, the Communities Secretary, said it was “utterly wrong” to attempt to make political points so soon after the attack.

Nick Clegg, the Deputy Prime Minister, said he was “dismayed” by the comments.

Last night, Mr Farage told Channel 4 News: “There is a very strong argument that says that what happened in Paris is a result–and we’ve seen it in London too–is a result I’m afraid of now having a fifth column living within these countries.

“We’ve got people living in these countries, holding our passports, who hate us.

“Luckily their numbers are very, very small but it does make one question the whole really gross attempt at encouraged division within society that we have had in the past few decades in the name of multiculturalism.”

He repeated the message on LBC Radio, saying: “What should have been done is we should have had a controlled immigration policy and made sure we did full checks on everybody who ever came to this country from anywhere – and that applies to everyone else.”

“We in Britain, and I’ve seen evidence in other European countries too, have pursued a really rather gross policy of multi-culturalism. We have encouraged people who come from different cultures to remain within those cultures, and not to integrate fully within our communities.”

Speaking on LBC, Mr Clegg said: “I’m dismayed that Nigel Farage thinks that on the back of the bloody murders on the streets of Paris yesterday, his first reflex is to seek to make political points.

“If this does come down to two individuals who have perverted Islam for their own bloody ends, the greatest antidote to the perversion of that great world religion, Islam, is law abiding British Muslim themselves.

“To imply that British Muslims, who I know are fervently British yet also proud of their Muslim faith, are somehow part of the problem not part of the solution is grabbing the wrong end of the stick.”

The term “fifth column” originates from the Spanish Civil War, and refers to a group living within society, or a besieged city, that covertly seeks to undermine it from within while aiding an external enemy.

Tessa Jowell, the Labour MP, tweeted that she found Mr Farage’s intervention “sickening”.

Eric Pickles, the Communities Secretary, said: “All free societies are vulnerable to this type of attack, and it is utterly wrong for any politician to be making political points when our neighbours in France are grieving.

“We still don’t know the full situation behind the atrocious events in Paris, but one thing is very clear. If we fight among ourselves, or see our neighbours of faith as the enemy, then the only winners are the gunmen.”

Mr Clegg, speaking during his weekly LBC show, issued a passionate defence of Charlie Hebdo, saying there is “no right to not be offended”.

He attacked a caller, named Omar, who said the attack was in response to “what was meted out to them” through CIA torture programmes and the invasion of Iraq.

“I cannot express how strongly I disagree with you,” Mr Clegg said.

“There can be no excuse, no reason, no explanation. They have killed cartoonists who have done nothing more than draw drawings that they so happen to find offensive. Do you know what? At the end of the day, in a free society people have to be free to offend each other.

“You cannot have freedom unless people are free to offend. We have no right to not be offended.”

“That fundamental principle of being free to offend each other is exactly what was under threat from these murderous barbarians.”

    What’s so hard to grasp for these idiots? You’d have to have an IQ lower than a frozen meat locker to not understand the inanely obvious.

    These leftist effete, elites, who claim to be so ‘tolerant,’ and ‘inclusive,’ and ‘hyper-altruistic,’ who love ‘DIE-versity,’ so much, are destroying every White Western civilization by importing barbarians.

    If you don’t want muslim terrorism, don’t import muslims – and then let them take over your own country…

    • Valmont

      You’d almost think the ones in charge want to destroy the West’s traditions and institutions.

      • SFLBIB

        That conclusion was reached a long time ago.

      • Realist


    • See The Future

      Terrorists are but a smoke screen. They are irrelevant to the islamification of the west.

    • johningermany

      All muslims are not terrorists but all terrorists are muslim. Eliminate the muslims and you eliminate the terrorists. It seems like that should be obvious.

    • archer

      They want the destruction of western society as we know it, multiculturalism is the tool they are using and they will defend it to their last breath, they are not stupid, they are marxists.
      I know that’s a oxymoron.

  • Easyrhino

    You have to be either blind or deluded not to see the negative impact multiculturalism has had on Europe.

    I think the elites are too smart not to see the negative effects and it’s part of their twisted agenda to destroy/dilute Western culture.

    • See The Future

      The elites somehow think they are immune from the Sadam/Kadafi solution.

      It will come if not sooner then later. By the hand of those they have defended.

      Didn’t the German prime minister declare multiculturalism a failure not long ago?

      • Realist

        If you are talking about Merkel….not a chance!

        • Triarius

          Merkel did. But then she did a 180 and blamed the Germans for not being accommodating enough after after the Muslim auslanders complained.

        • Triarius

          I commented a little while ago about this and provided a link where Merkel did say that. It was posted, after going through moderation but is now deleted.

          Long story short, yes Merkel did say that, then back peddled. Google it, it made international headlines.

      You could change the word multiculturalism with religion and make the same declaration. People never wise up. All the evidence in the world doesn’t cause them to give up their preconceived notion. Hitler, Napoleon, chairman Mao, Stalin, Fidel Castro… people can’t change their destructive programs in spite of all the evidence in the world.

    “Tessa Jowell, the Labour MP, tweeted that she found Mr Farage’s intervention “sickening”.

    Tessa didn’t dispute Farage’s claims because they’re indisputable, so she just labels those common sense views sickening. That’s fine. Let the public hear both UKIP’s position and Labour’s position, and see which side the public gravitates toward after this attack and the myriad of attacks that are sure to plague Europe in the coming years.

            I lived in Sweden’s forth largest city, Norrköping, in 79′-80′. Our house did have a lock but we rarely if ever used it because there was no need for it. I never read about or even heard of a rape the entire time I was there. Even though Im fluent in Swedish, I finally came across the word years later and had to look it up in my Swedish-English dictionary because I had never seen the Swedish word for rape before.

    Farage almost gets it right. What is happening is that Urban Europe is becoming Africanized. That’s the core problem. All else is bogus.

  • at least white europeans have some politicians on their side.

    We here in america have zilch. Well, we do have Senator James Webb, who is likely to run for president in 2016. Webb has said that the liberals have made white males a “whipping post.”

    Only prominent politician in america to speak up for whites.

    But he is a Democrat, so I would imagine the so called “dissident right” will not support him because of that. The Dissident Right seems more interested in supporting the GOP than in supporting white rights.

    • B.A_2014

      Why not? I support many so called leftist causes:

      1. Animal rights
      2. Environmental protection
      3. Anti smoking

      • SFLBIB

        No politician has your best interest at heart. Never has; never will.

    • Jim Webb is halfway reasonable and halfway sane. Short of Jeff Sessions or Kris Kobach or even Rick Santorum running or someone like them, I’ll be pulling for Webb.

      That said, his relative reasonability and sanity are precisely why he will never win the Democrat nomination for President. That parking space is reserved for only the wackiest crackpots.

      • I dunno, man… if webb gets into iowa a year from now and starts defending white males, that is gonna draw white males to him like crazy. No other high level politicians has done this…ever!

        • You’re thinking of the wrong party. Don’t forget, Webb would be running as a Democrat. To get “white” “men” in the Democrat Party to vote for you in droves, you have to defecate on white men, not defend them.

          • we’ll see…

            here’s the thing–things keep getting worse in the USA. More multiculti propaganda, more demonization of whites, more mass immigration, more corporate dominance of the gov’t, lower wages, more healthcare extortion, etc.

            This is bad. Bad bad bad.

      I’m more British than these planters and I’m four generations and in some cases hundreds of years removed from my British ancestors. I once sat and watched in disbelief as a Pakistani said repeatedly said he was as European as his advisory (a white Britain.)

        Pakistanis are just as European…as people from India.

          Indians are probably more European, as we share a lot of genetics.

          • The Dude

            The Indians were called “colored Caucasians” because most of them have caucasoid facial features and hair texture minus the fair skin and colored eyes/hair. But it depends on the region. Those closer to Pakistan and Iran tend to be more Middle Eastern-looking.

      Multiculturalists think that Muslims will embrace multiculturalism; yet Islam was established 1,300 years ago to destroy multiculturalism.”

      Islamic society is a totalitarian society, all other values are to be subordinated to Islamic values. But if anyone in Britain dares to criticize Islam, they will be denounced and told they live in a multicultural society, and must accept these totalitarian values.

      Here’s the scary part:

  • Simonetta

    These past few nights the BBC has had its usual gang of idiots that they bring out whenever the Muslims do something spectacularly awful and offensive. This is usually some Oxford or Cambridge-trained intellectual Muslim academic from the pre-OPEC Arabian elite who can always be called upon to deliver the old ‘Islam is a religion of peace’ nonsense with just the right amount of strained superiority and muted irony in his vocal tones. Just enough to make all the BBC listeners out there feel vaguely guilty for entertaining such thoughts like “maybe Muslims are actually all crazy and irremediably violent” after hearing of the latest atrocity by the prophet’s lunatics on the news.

    After a while you start to feel sorry for these bozos. I mean, what creature on Earth could be more ridiculous than an Oxford Muslim? He has to be the snotty jerk who is endlessly defending the most savage people on Earth (with the possible exception of the Africans) even when there is no way that he could possibly personally believe such dribble himself.

    But he’s up there on the radio after every slaughter with his pathetic ‘religion of peace’ litany because he knows that if he doesn’t do it, then any knock on his door could be the brother Muslim with the alla-akbar valentine, the ayatollah welcome-wagon. And that would be the end of his wonderful life in St. John’s Wood far far away from all the islamic human madness that he so profoundly hates, but must be identified with in order to keep himself personally isolated from ‘those people’ that he so publicly identifies with.

    Just listen to the BBC tonight on NPR, you’ll hear him.

        I agree with your point.

        The problem with the Anglican hierarchy seems to be that apart from them not believing in God anymore, they are far too intelligent for that, one archbishop of Canterbury was openly gay and had a partner. While I have no issue with gay on a personal level you have to admit that both the Catholics and Anglicans are in a incoherent mess about this and completely in the thrall of the left wing ideologues on gay and multicultural issue who hate them anyway. “Christian” background women at the undertow end have given up any standards as they have embraced a rancid, hateful, victimology feminism that provides no sensible guidance. It isn’t the Christians fault entirely as they were clearly targets for destruction. The result is A Christianity stands for little anymore and has handed over morality to the left. Nature abhors a vacuum and some people clearly prefer the clear guidance the muslims provide on many issues.

        The muslims have pretty much just stayed the course. The Muslims also have not suffered the ferocity of left wing attacks from the multicultural left. When they have suffered criticism it is by the right wing press for not living up to the multicultural expectations of the left.

        Many of the conversions are due to marriage. Muslim families tightly control their women and few marry out and conversion is required. Muslim men however are permitted to marry out so long as the children are raised muslim. He will take them to mosque. The woman often converts anyway.

        • WR_the_realist

          I agree that the Anglican church has become a monstrous joke. I am an agnostic — I regard that as an obvious reason why I am unqualified to be a Christian minister or priest. But many Anglican priests are openly atheists. But there are other alternatives. You could be a Baptist, or Eastern Orthodox Christian, or simply a nondenominational Christian. Not every branch of Christianity has gone woo woo lefty.

It ends with dress restrictions, churches not being allowed to repair themselves.

      Do it.

      Make the pilgrimage to the Bomber Harris statue and simply say how sorry you are.

      The fact that it is the Germans now in Dresden that are showing the courage to take to the streets resisting the Islamic invasions – yeah, that is a key point.

        I am British and I was born in 1954 so why should I be sorry about something that had nothing to do with me?Are you sorry about 19th Century U.S. Governments promoting the murder of Bison just so they could deprive the American Indians of their main source of sustenance?
        Watch what you say pal.

        Bomber Harris merrily whistled ditties while bombing German men, women and children from miles above.

    Farage speaks the truth. Multiculturalism is a cancer.

    • See The Future

      It is like the human body………..more often than not the cancer is unabatted by attempts at treatment………occasionally the body is able to recover…..but rarely.

      “Multicultural society.”

      The grossest of oxymorons.

  • See The Future

    Not so sure if I agree with Farage in this case. The Paris attack was strictly a revenge on those cartoonists. Don’t think that is really anything to do with multi-culturalism. Now if he would state that walking through London is like walking through a muslim city and attributing that to multi-culturalism I would agree.

  • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

    UKIP is a bad party. They support keeping all the third world immigrants in the US and also support homosexuality. They want to stop immigration, but the non whites that are citizens can still bring their families. So much for being anti immigrants. So support BNP. I think they are best for the UK.

    • Singingbird1

      the BNP are out of it.It is sad but it is too difficult to explain why to an American.UKIP are the Brits best hope.

      • Americaandthewestshouldbewhite

        Please explain. Is it because of Nick Griffin?

        • Singingbird1

          ‘Rationalise This’ has given reasons why.It took a long time for British people to realise what was happening in Britain.They were in a state of denial for a long time and scared to talk about mass immigration for fear of being called ‘Racist’.In the meantime,Labour were very busy demonising the BNP and they tried to jail N.G. twice in 2004 but were unsuccessful.But the mud stuck and the BNP were seen by the Public as extremist.People did not see them as a viable political party including myself.However,UKIP, as they became more successful were and are viable so a lot of BNP supporters swithched to UKIP.Indeed even Nick Griffin in 2010 said of UKIPs growing support something like, that at least UKIP stood for pulling out of the E.U. and curbing immigration.
          Before UKIP were becoming successful I was desperate for Labour to lose their seats.If I saw UKIP and a Conservative candidate I would vote Conservative as the latter were more viable than UKIP or the BNP.Except of course in the last European elections when I voted UKIP.But now I will vote UKIP as they have a real chance of gaining seats even in Labour strongholds.In the 2014 bye election in Middleton and Heywood which was a Labour safe seat and Lee Rigby’s home town
          ,Labour just beat UKIP by only 600 votes.Now if just 700 of those voters wishing to oust labour had voted UKIP instead of Conservative then there would now be a UKIP M.P. in Middleton.So it is a case of voters wieghing up who would be more likely to succeed;UKIP or the BNP.

          Another factor is that the BNP have been overt about their policies which has allowed the media to viciously attack them and even poiticians pass laws against them to make the BNP change their manifesto.I hope this sheds some light.I don’t understand all of the reasons myself but this is how I see it.

          • jaye ellis

            But, the BNP and Nick Griffin were successful in getting the whole ball rolling, they changed the political climate in the the UK.

            Same with David Duke in the USA. Though demonized and marginalized, their once “unspeakable” political/cultural programs are now very, very speakable and will be enacted.

            All political parties in the UK from Left to Right will now have to address Islamic terrorism, mass non British immigration etc.

            Good job Nick Griffin and BNP, they were prophets that were not honored in their own time.

          • Singingbird1

            I used to be a BNP supporter but like I said UKIP are more likely to win Parliamentary seats so I am not going to waste my vote on the BNP.One other very important factor is that the BNP could not protect their members from being exposed.I was on that leaked list and suffered discrimination for a number of years after that.So I would never join that Party again.

  • KenelmDigby

    Thankfully, the Liberal Democrat Party that Nick Clegg leads is more or less certain to be wpied out at the 2015 UK General Election.
    It’s also very likely that Nick Clegg will be kicked out of his leader’s job by angry Liberal MPs and party members.

    Conversely, it seems that UKIP will do rather will.

  • Daniel McGrath

    UKIP will prevent the influx of Poles and Russians. That’s the reality. It won’t stem the Africans and Pakis.

    All a real Frenchman has to do is criticize multiculturalism. Those who scream at you take note of them. Them’s your enemies. Simple as that.

  • withcaution

    Let’s get real, the attacks on 9/11, the London bus and subway attacks, and the Spanish attacks resulted in the public going about their business as usual and electing the same rabble they did before. The West is done for.

    • libertarian1234

      You’re right on there.
      Reading what these radical leftist dregs are spinning disgusts me to no end.
      They’re either Orwellian programmed stooges or so naïve they have no idea what the real world is all about.
      It’s really pitiful people like that are in charge now. They just hate it when someone tells the truth.

  • Speedy Steve

    Theresa May, the Home Secretary, condemned the comments. “It is irresponsible to talk about a fifth column.”

    But she never denied its presence. Typical liberal elitist doublespeak.

  • Cathy Madera

    When is exactly the right to time to “score political points”, Mr Clegg? Since the MSM never honestly report the repercussions and real world consequences of liberal / progressive multicultural immigration policies that are destroying western civilization this seems like the only opportunity. Before the populace is put back to sleep with bread and circus, while their attention is temporarily focused on these tragedies, conservatives must make political hay and draw comparisons.

  • libertarian1234

    “Nigel Farage has been accused of exploiting the murders of cartoonists in France for political gain after saying the attack was a result of “a really rather gross policy of multi-culturalism”.

    Forget about political gain. Is it the truth? It obviously is, but the white weenies won’t buy it.

    That they have endangered their entire population of white natives by bringing these people in doesn’t register with them at all.

    Muslims don’t want to integrate. They want their own culture and sharia law.

  • LHathaway

    “accused of exploiting the killings for political gain”.
    So, the more muslims agitate, the more conservatives or nativist liberals gain? What an admission?
    Of course, the move conservatives gain, the more we will adventure overseas, and the more they will attack us. . . .

  • Singingbird1

    Nigel Farage speaks the truth and everybody knows it.All this trouble in France and Britain is a direct result of immigration.It just so happens the politicians of labour,conservative and liberals are complicit in this as they have encouraged and/or done nothing effective to curb immigration.
    It is also true that by speaking the truth about what has caused the troubles in Paris i.e.immigration,Nigel Farage is increasing his chances of gainging more votes in the May General Election in Britain.The other political parties know this so they are condemning Nigel Farrage’s observations.Well it will gain UKIP more support because the indigenous Brits want reform of immigration and UKIP will deliver on this.By condemning Nigel Farage’s words on this the other political parties are not doing themselves any good because they are implicitly saying that they won’t do anything about immigration.So they are not fit for purpose and I,for one,want rid of them.Vote UKIP!

  • drattastic

    The “fifth column” are the leftist who run theses governments including or own. To any rational person it is crystal clear who our enemies are, oh but not to the leftist ,it’s all very convoluted and complex and in their minds the real danger are their blood countrymen who have a conservative viewpoint. Fools all.

  • Luis

    Clegg is talking out of both sides of his mouth. On the one hand he states that ….”there isno right not to be offended….”

    Then why did they pass those “hate laws”?

    Farage is making people squirm with his comments – so their reaction is to bash him, in order to feel more comfortable.

    Kinda what ex-Gary IN mayor Richard Hatcher used to do . Whenever anyone mentioned Gary’s high crime rate, Hatcher would denounce them as “racists”, even though he knew deep-down that Bantus were committing almost all of the crimes in his 90% Bantu city.

  • Vyncennt

    ““It is irresponsible to talk about a fifth column””

    Would it not be irresponsible to NOT talk about a fifth column, if one were to even have the slightest possibility of existing?

    ” it was utterly wrong to attempt to make political points so soon after the attack”

    How long should one politely wait before pointing out the political causes of an atrocity?

    “Deputy Prime Minister said he was dismayed by the comments.”

    It was the COMMENTS that were dismaying post mass murder? Interesting…

    “his first reflex is to seek to make political points.”

    I believe his first reflex was to examine causality….

    “If this does come down to two individuals who have perverted Islam for their own bloody ends”

    It comes down to two individuals who have obeyed Islam flawlessly. It is all written down, by the way, for all to enjoy.

    “the greatest antidote to the perversion of that great world religion, Islam, is law abiding British Muslim themselves”

    And when, pray tell, do you foresee these law abiding citizens appearing in Britain? The ones I’ve witnessed already follow the law. Just not your law.

    “To imply that British Muslims, who I know are fervently British yet also proud of their Muslim faith, are somehow part of the problem not part of the solution is grabbing the wrong end of the stick”

    These “fervently British” Muslims will be happy to educate you on which end of the stick is yours when they have sufficient numbers.

    “she found Mr Farage’s intervention sickening”

    Definitely at least as sickening as double digit murder. Definitely.

    “All free societies are vulnerable to this type of attack”

    Yet only certain free societies seem to be at the receiving end of this type of attack and only one particular group seems to be perpetrating them….an odd coincidence.

    “If we fight among ourselves, or see our neighbors of faith as the enemy, then the only winners are the gunmen.”

    The gunmen may not deem themselves winners if the people of France stand up in solidarity against them and the culture that produces/propagates them.

  • OhWow

    Diversity kills. Plain and simple. Whoever thinks forcing cats and dogs to live together will lead to harmony is brainwashed.

  • RationaliseThis

    The BNP is taking the “heat”. It’s mere presence allows UKIP and its supporters to claim they are moderate good guys and use the BNP as scapegoats. If The BNP disappeared the attacks would focus entirely on UKIP. The BNP has entirely reasonable and genteel policies. Their problem is that they speak the truth.

    The BNP is doing excellent work, they are absolutely essential in fighting the good fight. Heroes to a man and woman.

  • jaye ellis

    Well said Nigel Farage (last name doesn’t sound very English).

    Populist Nationalist leaders, should, must use threat of Muslim extremist 5th columnists to come to power.

    The Swiss People’s Party is the #1 party in Switzerland, they campaigned to keep up Muslim immigrants who would build Mosques with Turrets that look like missiles, showed scary women disguised in terrorist masks.

    Opposing racially alien, terrorist Islam immigration works.

    We would have to be fools not to use this issue…

    Fools, idiots, morons, dumb ***, liberals, libertarians etc.

    Also understand, some lying Neo Conservative in not so Merry Old England is now being groomed to be presented as a false savior against the Islamic terror, crime.

    Nicholaus Sarkozy was the false conservative savior in France when as the French Interior Minister he talked very tough against Blacks and Algerian youths rioting in Paris Suburbs. Once made the Conservative French President – he proposed merging both sides of the Med Sea in to a common market, free flow of goods, services and yes PEOPLE!

    That lying Neo Con Tribesman Sarkozy proposed merging France with the entire Arab Muslim country of Algeria!

  • Ellis Kurtz

    Despite what Farage says, it is not at all evident that an attempt to assimilate Muslims would have succeeded. The populations that assimilate are those that have an affinity to the host culture. Others profit from living in the West but maintain their own cultural norms. American blacks are an example of this.
