Multiculturalism and the Alienation of Western Civilization’s Elites

This multicultural madness has dangerous secondary manifestations that are presently packaged and instituted as “isms” by the elite. These include “tolerance,” millenarian one-worldism, inclusivism, and anti-discriminationism, which not only demand “engagement” abroad, but advocate open-door immigration at home.

The following is the text of Srdja Trifkovic’s prepared remarks as a panelist at ProEnglish’s CPAC panel, “The Failure of Multiculturalism,” Washington, D.C., February 9, 2012. Robert Vandervoort, executive director of ProEnglish, delivered the remarks on Trifkovic’s behalf.

Members of the Western elite class overwhelmingly subscribe to a neoliberal world outlook in general and to the tenets of multiculturalismin particular. In other words, they tend to accept the principle that recognition, positive accommodation,and even celebration, of demands and special political and moral claims of various ethno-racial, religious, or sexual minorities are obligatory through “group-differentiated rights.” The result is an obsessive favoritism of allegedly disadvantaged groupsoften hostile to the European-descended majority of Americans , such as Third World societies and immigrants in general, Muslimsin particular .

These assumptions are culturally and institutionally internalized by the political, academic, and media elite. Behind the veneer of all-embracing diversity, however, we find a carefully calibrated scale of acceptance or rejection of “the Other” — depending on the cultural and political preferences of the members of the elite themselves. They insist that there are many self-validating, closed systems of perception, feeling, thought, and evaluation, each associated with a racially, ethnically, religiously, or sexually defined group. This effectively rejects the legacy of the Western civilization, and specifically its reliance on the standards of reason, evidence, and objectivity and principles of justice and freedom that apply to human beings as such.
