According to an essay by Pat Buchanan (Is Belgium breaking up?) the religious intensity of diversity and multiculturalism, gripping both Europe and the U.S. and Canada, could in fact be be the end chapter in Arthur Schlesinger’s prediction (1991) that “Ethnic and racial conflict…will soon replace the conflict of ideologies as the explosive issue of our time.” Multicultural society–a society with no dominant national culture or laws–is gradually writing its own final chapter. In Britain alone Scottish and Irish secessionists have been gaining ground. In Spain too. England, Norway, Sweden and Denmark are fast being divided by religion and culture (Muslim VS secular society). Bilingual Canada is essentially two separate countries (French speaking Quebec and English speaking provinces). America is fast becoming divided by language due to nearly unchecked illegal immigration. Here, too, a growing Islamic population is gradually procuring its own Sharia law separateness (though it’s not yet quite as bad as it is in Europe). The most apparent demise right now is bilingual Belgium; it is so stymied by seperatism that almost half of that population want to officially divide. To make things even uglier these governments that want to remain “solvent multicultural nations,” are resorting to crypto-fascist technique.
As Buchanan describes it, “Heightening the tensions, on Sept. 11, a demonstration was held in Brussels to protest ‘the Islamization of Europe, featuring a moment of silence for the victims of 9/11. There, as Washington Times columnist Diana West describes the videotape, ‘we see black-clad Belgian policemen brutalizing a man in a light-colored suit and tie. His hands are cuffed behind his back, his right elbow is clasped in what is known as an arm-bar hold, and he is being subjected to a genital hold – a vicious grip that, a retired cop friend of mine tells me, would get any American policeman thrown off the force.’ The victim of this police brutality was Frank Vanhecke, president of the Flemish secessionist party Vlams Belang and a member of the European Parliament. Also arrested and beaten was Filip Dewinter, the leading politician of Vlams Belang, which is Belgium’s largest opposition party. This is like having Mitch McConnell beaten up and arrested at a rally on the Washington Mall to protest illegal immigration.”
