For the white man, no good deed goes unpunished. The left-wing media, through its critical coverage of European responses to immigration, seems intent on validating this maxim. The country currently facing scrutiny for not sufficiently rolling out the welcome mat for alien migrants is Germany.
Germany, like Sweden, has welcomed a tremendous number of asylum seekers, which places them ahead of all other Western countries. I think it goes without saying that their tolerance of outsiders easily out-does any non-Western country. I’m aware that nations such as Pakistan and Iran host more refugees than Western countries. However, there’s a significant difference between Iran and Pakistan accommodating fellow Middle Easterners or South Asians and Europeans welcoming visible minorities with disparate cultures and mindsets. Therefore, I would say that Germany practices greater tolerance than the aforementioned Eastern countries. Nevertheless, instances of xenophobia and violence have perturbed much of the established media. One asylum seeker from Somalia recalls numerous acts of racism, including having bananas thrown his way.
Of course, civilized peoples should frown upon such barbaric behavior. Unfortunately, this article represents the false binary that frequently constricts immigration debates. One is either an open borders enthusiast or a raging bigot who throws bananas at black people; Europeans must welcome any and all outsiders, or they’re intolerant xenophobes responsible for thousands of Mediterranean deaths.
Such a dichotomy is patently false. Our blog has consistently advanced the notion that one can be civilized and tolerant towards other people; at the same time, strong boundaries must accompany such tolerance. European nations can treat immigrants already living within their lands with a certain dignity, while simultaneously securing their borders and ensuring that whites remain the majority. They can protect minorities from flagrant abuse and at the same time firmly reject multiculturalism.
Liberals do not have a monopoly on tolerance and civilized behavior, and pro-white conservatives are perfectly capable of practicing these virtues. Indeed, preserving white majorities – and saving the Western world from its own follies – depends on changing the terms of the immigration and multiculturalism debate.
It’s time to abolish this foolish dichotomy that’s polluting discussions surrounding immigration and diversity management.
