A Mississauga councillor’s community barbecue will go ahead as planned on Sunday despite complaints from some members of the Muslim community that the event is being held during Ramadan, a period of religious fasting.
Ward 10 Councillor Sue McFadden told The News she has received about a dozen angry calls urging her to reschedule the event.
“I’m very sympathetic, but the arrangements have been made long ago and cannot be changed at this late stage. However, I will certainly try next year to keep Ramadan in mind and not schedule it for during that period,” said McFadden.
“But Mississauga is an extremely diverse community, with a lot of different faiths. It won’t be very easy to find a date that’s suitable for every group,” she added.
America is expected to add something like 100-120 million people in four-to-five decades, almost all people of color who have never before been fully assimilated into any First World nation. Every great city is going to look like Los Angeles, and, as Putnam reported earlier, Los Angeles is a textbook example of a multiracial, multiethnic, multilingual city where levels of suspicion and mistrust approach the maximum.
As we know, it is the legal immigrant community that is the sea in which the illegals swim, feed and flourish. And if legal immigration from the Third World increases the levels of suspicion and mistrust, not only among immigrants and native-born but also among all minorities, and even within each ethnic and racial community, what are we doing?
For this is about whether America in thirty or forty years is going to be a giant dystopia, in T.R.’s phrase, “a tangle of squabbling nationalities” and not really a country or nation or people at all.
Between 1924 and 1965, the Melting Pot worked. It converted the children of 15 million European immigrants into American citizens with shared traditions, values and culture.
But today’s immigration is different. And today’s America is different. The numbers coming are huge, and they are coming from countries, cultures and civilizations whose peoples have never before been assimilated by any European nation. And they are arriving in an America whose Melting Pot is broken and whose elites lack the vision to see or the moral courage to confront the imminent peril.
Political correctness may yet prove fatal to the republic.
