Reader comment on item: Daily Illini Bias Against My USIP Appointment

Submitted by Jason Eritano (United Kingdom), Dec 10, 2003 at 07:15

I have read your article and some of your work. You are criticized because you are one of the few guys who had the guts to question multiculturalism. Is multiculturalism beyond debate? I don't know about the United States of America, but multiculturalism cannot be debated in Europe. Those who question multiculturalism are usually threatened by left-wingers. The irony of all of this is that multiculturalists are usually (99% of the times) white males. These angry white males are prepared to use violence against those who dispute their multicultural ideology. I know that Daniel Pipes has been described as an "Islamophobe". I have got the impression that "Islamophobe" is an empty word. However, if Pipes was in Europe, he would put his own safety at risk because of his views. We are given 2 alternatves: either you are a multiculturalist or you are a fanatical extreme right-winger. Like I have said, those who impose multiculturalism on the majority are white males. These angry white males usually join left-wing movements and beat up those who don't share their views. It is necessary to develop an alternative to multiculturalism. First of all, we need to integrate people as opposed to create divisions and polarisation. Secondly, we shall be allowed to debate multicultralism without having to fear for our own safety. Finally, white males have got no right to ban the debate on multiculturalism . The left-wing is imposing its ideology through the use of violence and intimidation. These frustrated white males are doing more harm than good. Multicultuarlism is not an absolute truth and we need to have a debate about it. That would be the first time in 20 years. But it is never too late. And, hopefully, white male left-wingers will allow us to speak our minds.
