Don't look for this on the mainstream news...

Netherlands Abandoning Multiculturalism! YES! They recogize that it is a failure and that it dramatically weakens the country.

America ... and especially the socialist state of California ... sure could learn a lesson from the Dutch.

Here is an article about it. Web Link

Here is an excerpt:
Soeren Kern, writing for Hudson New York, covers an important story that has gotten almost no notice from the American media, which wishes to pretend that multiculturalism works just fine:
A new integration bill (covering letter and 15-page action plan), which Dutch Interior Minister Piet Hein Donner presented to parliament on June 16, reads: "The government shares the social dissatisfaction over the multicultural society model and plans to shift priority to the values of the Dutch people. In the new integration system, the values of the Dutch society play a central role. With this change, the government steps away from the model of a multicultural society."

The letter continues: "A more obligatory integration is justified because the government also demands that from its own citizens. It is necessary because otherwise the society gradually grows apart and eventually no one feels at home anymore in the Netherlands. The integration will not be tailored to different groups."

The new integration policy will place more demands on immigrants. For example, immigrants will be required to learn the Dutch language, and the government will take a tougher approach to immigrants to ignore Dutch values or disobey Dutch law.

The government will also stop offering special subsidies for Muslim immigrants because, according to Donner, "it is not the government's job to integrate immigrants." The government will introduce new legislation that outlaws forced marriages and will also impose tougher measures against Muslim immigrants who lower their chances of employment by the way they dress. More specifically, the government will impose a ban on face-covering Islamic burqas as of January 1, 2013.

Did you ver wonder why the USA was formed? Let's see.... poverty was a reason why people left Europe but pursuit of freedom and breaking away from nonsense were major!

Europe may be enlightened in some ways but quite backwards in other ways. After all, some countries still have a king and queen (yikes!)

btw, the dutch still have a monarchy, and you want the US to follow their lead? NO way!

So the dutch want to outlaw burqas? Why don't they outlaw the monarchy first? In modern times, having taxpayers support a bunch of "royals" is absolutely insane!

Your "Monarchy" point is totally irrelevant.
Multiculturalism destroys the host country's culture.
Multi-ethnicities is fine as long as people entered legally.
We should be promoting ONE CULTURE within our country...the AMERICAN CULTURE.

The other cultures who have entered America do not give a rip about assimilating with America's culture.

Wise up you slobbering leftist liberal
