Intolerance is Prevalent in Europe


Inflammatory speech, you say? Well, I think they ought to take a look at this sort of thing as well:


Really, Chancellor Merkel. Did you think that your proclamation that "multiculturalism has failed" would be ignored by hard right, xenophobic elements in Europe? Here is a mainstream national leader in Europe who is, essentially, making their case for them.

This thinking has taken hold in Europe. There is a tremendous amount of unease with immigration, which, for all intents and purposes, is human migration and cannot, under virtually any circumstances, be stopped. Europe has seen tribal migration and displaced populations since before Roman times. Why people cannot understand that this is something driven by economics--food, shelter, jobs, dignity, et al--and not by a sinister attempt to "take over" someone else's country is beyond me.
