From cooler heads - Germany

Odd that we are hurtling into the abyss while other nations are stepping back. From BBC News:
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".

The study - by the Friedrich Ebert Foundation think-tank - also showed that roughly the same number thought that some 16 million of Germany's immigrants or people with foreign origins had come to the country for the social benefits.
We call the USA a melting pot and point to the great open immigration through Ellis Island but there, people understood that they had to learn English and assimilate into society and become a productive member. These days, people come here just to get on the dole and they have no incentive to become a 'good' citizen. With the Progressives pushing for more government cheese, these new wards of the state are going to vote for whomever gives them the most to the overall detriment of this Republic...
