Merkel says German multicultural society has failed
Attempts to build a multicultural society in Germany have "utterly failed", Chancellor Angela Merkel says.
In a speech in Potsdam, she said the so-called "multikulti" concept - where people would "live side-by-side" happily - did not work.
Mrs Merkel's comments come amid recent outpourings of strong anti-immigrant feeling from mainstream politicians.
A recent survey showed that more than 30% of Germans believed Germany was "overrun by foreigners".
Mrs Merkel stressed that immigrants living in Germany needed to do more to integrate, including learning to speak German.
"Anyone who does not immediately speak German", she said, "is not welcome".
In August, Thilo Sarrazin, a senior official at Germany's central bank, said that "no immigrant group other than Muslims is so strongly connected with claims on the welfare state and crime". Mr Sarrazin has since resigned.
Another nation turning back from the failure Obama is bound and determine we follow.
Progressives love the idea that they know what is the best for the people who cannot take care of themselves, but in case after case (and this is only the latest), their programs fail. Here is the United States we are seeing just what they have done to our education system, every year we pour more and more and more money into it, and nothing changes, our kids are still falling behind. It is not because of the lack of money, nor a lack of teachers, the main reason is because education has become a huge black hole, and despite more money being allocated each year, the actual money that gets to the classroom get smaller and smaller. The administrators, unions, and Department of Education gobble up most of the tax revenues before a dime even gets to the local school district. And yet, every year the liberals claim the problem is not enough money. Enough lies is what they need to be told.
If you really want to see a city that progressives have built (or rather run into the ground) visit Detroit, This used to be a beautiful thriving city until liberals got their hands on it, and now. Well sorry to say, I wouldn't want to sent the worst criminals in the world to live there.
And now, these same liberal (progressive) Democrats have gotten their oily hands all over our health care system. This will be worse than Detroit, or Germany. It is doomed to total destruction, and utter failure. And it will take down our whole society with it if left unchecked. Time to tell these progressive destroyers to sit down and shut up, socialism does NOT work. Period.
