Abolishing The West: Immigrants Reject Assimilation
How much longer will the white
majority nations of
Europe, North America and
Australia keep pretending they`re "assimilating"
non-white Third World peoples into the warm and toasty
melting pot imagined by
Probably not very much longer at
all, as a matter of fact. If
Sept. 11 wasn`t enough to disabuse some people of
their delusions about immigration, the immigrants
themselves will do so.
The New York Times reports
that in Great Britain, where both Tory and Labor
governments have long pushed multiculturalism, welcomed
mass immigration from the remnants of the British empire
and outlawed virtually any
act, word or thought that even looks like "racism,"
the immigrants themselves are fed up with trying to
become British. [Britain`s
Nonwhites Feel Un-British, Report Says, NYT
April 4, 2002]
"The only times I call
myself British are when I go to get a passport and when
someone asks me where my accent comes from,"
snorts a native-born Englishwoman,
Jenni I`Anson, who happens to be of Jamaican parentage.
"Otherwise I would never
class myself as British. There is no sense of belonging
here. I would only say that I am African-Caribbean."
Her nephew is a bit more explicit
about what he is.
"British to me means white, and I don`t get treated like
a white person, so I don`t think of myself as British."
The Times report dredges up
several quotations like these from several Britons (no
insult intended) who are either immigrants themselves or
descended from non-white immigrants. Last summer`s
race riots in northern England perhaps hinted to
many that the multiculturalist propaganda was all
hogwash, but even without
riots, terrorism and blatant anti-white and
anti-Western sentiments, the evidence is pretty clear
that Britain`s Third World population is not behaving
the way universalist ideology insists it should.
In response to the northern riots,
the Home Office has been
suggesting that maybe the "minorities speed the
process of integration by adopting British `norms of
acceptability,`" and proposing that newcomers take an
oath of allegiance, study British history and culture
and embrace "our laws, our values, our institutions."
The suggestions promptly received the British (excuse
me, the African-Caribbean) equivalent of a Bronx cheer.
If there`s any place in England
where "assimilation" would seem to be able to work, it`s
Sheffield, the country`s fourth largest city, and it`s
on Sheffield that the Times report focuses. The
"would seem to be a place where that project would enjoy
more success than elsewhere in Britain. Race relations
have been less combative here than in cities like
London, Birmingham, Liverpool, Bradford and Leeds with
histories of rioting. The local government has been more
attentive and the police more communicative."
But assimilation, integration,
call it what you please, is not what the immigrants
(excuse me again, the British) want. "Of course it`s the
wrong thing to be asking of us," declares one Pakistani
immigrant who arrived as a child and is now 46.
a lot of so-called English want us to want is leafy
Oxfordshire. But what we want is a job, a decent place
to live, safety, a chance to educate our children. We
want to preserve our separate
identities. And remember, we must still
also maintain the economic link with our original homes.
Forty years later, I am still
sending money back."
What this gentleman is saying is
that neither he nor other non-Western immigrants have
the least intention of even trying to adopt the manners
and values of the country to which they invited
themselves, and that they feel insulted if the
"so-called English" suggest they should.
What they expect is that the
British people and the civilization they created should
provide them with whatever they please—the wealth,
security, freedom, education and comfort that is the
creation of the white West—but that they do nothing
whatsoever to sustain the civilization.
Of course, there is a school of
thought that maintains that non-Western peoples are
simply not capable of sustaining—or assimilating to—the
civilization of the West, that "East is East and West is
West," as Kipling
put it, and never the twain shall meet. The
responses of non-Western immigrants into Britain say
nothing to contradict that view.
How long a country like Britain,
which now has a population only 7.1 percent non-white
but is projected to have a non-white majority by the end
of the 21st century, can expect to maintain the fruits
of the civilization that even the immigrants demand as
their right is not clear.
But whether the immigrants cannot,
will not or simply do not assimilate to the civilization of the country in
which they chose to live, the fate of extinction that
faces British civilization is no different from that
which faces all other Western nations that continue to
harbor the mythology of mass immigration.
