Are you a follower of the religion of Political Correctness, since you only give those two options? ... well, since you only gives me those to chose between, I'm definitely a bigot.Are you stupid or just a bigot?
It's just a result of multiculturalism.
In other words, I'm a Dane, and I'm proud of my culture, and the society that it sustains.
According to various international surveys on social cohesion in various cultures, Denmark consistently comes out among the countries with the highest degree of social cohesion, often on the top of the list. This also means that we have a very high degree of democracy, as recently shown by an extensive research published by the University of Zürich [you might also reference the writings of scientists like Lawrence Harrison, Samuel P. Huntington, Ronald Inglehart, Francis Fukuyama, Alexis de Tocqueville, James W. Fox, Ralf Pittelkow and Peter Gundelach].
So, we have a culture giving us a high degree of social cohesion, and we're defending that. We reject multiculturalism as an utter failure.
The riots started in Tottenham, which according to wikipedia has this demographic composition:
Riots spread for one reason or another, usually it's sympathy towards whatever caused the riots in the first place.
You'll get the same picture for many of the other places showing "sympathy towards whatever caused the riots".
Tottenham has a multicultural population, with many ethnic groups inhabiting the area. It contains one of the largest and most significant populations of African-Caribbean people. These were among the earliest immigrant groups to settle in the area, starting the UK's Windrush era. Soon afterwards West African communities - notably the many Ghanaians - began to migrate into the area. Between 1980 and the present day there has been a slow immigration of Colombians, Congolese, Albanian, Kurdish, Turkish-Cypriot, Turkish, Somalis, Irish, and Portuguese populations. South Tottenham is reported to be the most ethnically-diverse area in Europe, with up to 300 languages being spoken by its residents.
The failure of multiculturalism is apparent not only in Britain, but in whole of Europe. Leading politicians are starting to break the taboo of "don't see, don't hear, don't speak" ... what we still need to see, is that the not only talk the talk, but actually walk the walk.
Update: Four days of riots, five dead. As one eye-witness said yesterday: "It's a war-zone".
Only 2 years ago the Norwegian blogger 'Fjordman' gave this warning:
source: Gates of Wienna: The Coming Crash
Tensions have been building slowly beneath the surface for many years and sooner or later these forces will be released in the form of a series of devastating earthquakes, followed by some secondary political and economic tsunamis. Some of the structures that currently appear to be rock solid will collapse like a house of cards during this period and the political landscape will change considerably. What appears unthinkable today will appear natural or inevitable twenty years from now ... I would rank Britain as the Western European country most likely to first get a civil war caused by mass immigration and Multiculturalism.
