Multi Culti Amen

The French riots should affirm once and for all that multiculturalism is a really, really bad idea. It should be shelved right up there with communism and the true believer ostracized for being complete imbeciles. Of course, VDH puts it better than I:
So we should consider the French disaster a wake-up call. A nation cannot exist without shared values and a sense of common mission. We forgot about that in the 1960s when we encouraged racial separatism as a means of rectifying past discrimination. That kind of identity politics has proven a near-disaster. A salad bowl in place of the melting pot will, at the worst, turn America into something like the Balkans, and at best ensure separatism along the lines of Quebec - or France.
