The Conservatives We Don't Want

The Anal"Philosopher" writes:
By allowing Muslims to immigrate into their countries in massive numbers, Europeans are destroying their culture and risking their lives. What idiots. And these are the people we are supposed to emulate with regard to gun ownership, capital punishment, homosexual "marriage," confiscatory taxation, and other matters? Americans must never stoop to the level of Europeans. If they do, they deserve Europe's fate.
I don't know about you, but to my ear, that sounds exactly like the arguments heard in the United States during the first few decades of the twentieth century, but instead of Muslims, the arguments were directed at Italians and the Irish. It also sounds uncannily like the arguments made in the south about the effects of freeing the slaves and loosing all those dark-skinned folk on the fair, southern culture. These are the Republican voters we don't want to reach out to, and should ignore entirely. This may sound harsh, but what I think what they want is less than worthless.

I tend to agree, although I think the situation with Muslims is somewhat different due to the rise of a kind of Islamo-Fascism. Thus far I've not seen any rational way given to really deal with that. I truly fear, because those fascists are such a small minority, that many cultures will overreact and do what the US did to Japanese-Americans.

I've long felt that the whole adherence to a culture is a horrible thing. Must be the libertarian strain left in me. There is a lot of this cultural imperialism in various guises. You see it directed towards 3rd world countries as well - with the overly romanticized view of those nations. Nepal in particular has gotten a lot of that.
