Europe Is Starting to Get It about Immigration and Assimilation: How about President Bush and Congress?

Europe Is Starting to Get It about Immigration and Assimilation:  How about President Bush and Congress?

Newsweek has an interesting piece on the new attitude that Europeans are copping about immigration and assimilation in the wake of banlieue riots in France and Cartoon Jihad riots around the world.  (Hat tip: commenter mglazer on lgf.)

In short: If you want to come here to live (e.g., Holland, France, etc.), you WILL learn our language, you will not dress your women burqas in public, and so forth.

Funny: Europe is starting to get.

Wonder when – or if – President Bush (our Chief Executive of the broken Southern Border) or Congress will ever wake up . . .  before it is too late?

I wish Bush would take a look at the border and not see VOTES...

That's the problem, he sees votes and just in case he hasn't noticed, *most* Mexicans vote Dem...

Hi, TexasFred - Good point! nI think he also sees "favors" (as in "owed to his big business donors who love cheap illegal labor for ALL the WRONG reasons).

No matter: His negligence is inexcusable in either case.

I spent the weekend at a foreign policy Symposium at Tufts University and was astonished at the number of speakers and attendees who tried to justify the Muslim reaction to the cartoons. The discussions were interesting for the most part, the leftists were just the price I had to pay.
Kidding aside, they were serious. The attitude for the most part was that Denmark was to blame. They talked about property damage as though no one had died. The 2003 winner of the Nobel Peace prize stated that the burning of the embassies had the unfortunate consequences of causing the protesters to lose "some" of their credibility. Unbelievable!

Hi, bostonmaggie! Thank you for this intelligence briefing from your time spent "behind enemy lines!" Your report confirms what Michael Savage has been saying for years now: We have a MAJOR contingent of "The Enemy Within," one major component of which is the World of Academe, about which you report. (Others would include the ACLU, the MSM, and members of the political left.) Savage says that, if we are to get serious in our "War on Terror," then the President needs to both muzzle and intern (as in the way FDR "interned" Japanese-Americans during WWII.) Your report makes Savage's position sound less-and-less radical or untenable. If we are TRULY "at war," then we must FIGHT as though we are. Your note about the use of the euphemism of "property damage" to hide human slaughter is straight out of the Marxist playbook.

bostonmaggie: I meant they -- not you! -- were taking a play straight out of the marxist playbook. (Sorry if I was not clear about that!) -- gunjam

Bush and Congress are just plain out ignoring this problem. The administration tells us we desperately need a Patriot Act (I do agree with them) or we are next to doomed, but never bothers to truly address our open borders to the entire planet. Bush and many of that set of the Republican Party need to start making some sense here.

Great site (San Antonian here as well).

"the world of academe..." Of course, smart people are the enemy.

Hi, elizabeth: Thank you for your comment. Now, let us deconstruct it a bit? First, your statement clearly implies that you see the denizens of "the world of academe" as identical with "smart people." (I really don't think that you really believe that!) I, on the other hand, would assert that there are some really stupid people in the world of academe (note: I did not say "all") and that there are also some very smart ones outside it. Additionally, if you are not willing to agree that "the world of academe" -- as it exists today on American campuses -- is dominated by Leftists, then, perhaps, you need to re-examine the situation. David Horowitz, the brilliant (and former Marxist) editor of FrontPageMag.com has a new book out warning of the ominious threat to good and balanced education posed by the Leftist domination of the American academic world. However, I am happy to affirm that there are some excellent, brilliant, and well-balanced scholars out there. One I respect a great deal is Bernard Lewis. -- gunjam
