SYDNEY – Swimming against a rising tide of criticism of immigration in Europe, an Australian minister has defended multiculturalism, saying immigrants have been a success story in multi-cultural Australian society.It is in that spirit that I declare peace in our time.
"To me, multiculturalism is a bit like a marriage. It has its stresses and strains," Immigration Minister Chris Bowen told the conservative Sydney Institute think-tank in a speech cited by Agence France-Press (AFP) on Thursday, February 17.
"We have to remind each other occasionally that we are better off with each other. It takes nurturing; it takes care.
"It is in that spirit tonight that I quite proudly proclaim that Australian multiculturalism has worked.”...
Oh, sorry. Something came over me for a sec.
To proclaim multiculti was worked (when all evidence is to the contrary) it takes groveling; it takes the ability to blow smoke out your backside--both of which this clueless dhim-wit has mastered.
