I think so.
Nothing against immigration but if you choose to come to another country,another culture. How rude is it to try and fly in the face of that country's traditions and ways of life.
If you can't adapt your faith into a way that fits in with OUR society, then go and live in a country that embraces inequality to women etc.
Seems like common sense but still they come here, those with only intentions of making US change and are not prepared to change themselves.
Anyway, with no further ado, here it is
ENGLAND I think this really sums it all up.
After hearing that many cities did not want to offend other cultures by putting up Xmas lights, so DIDN'T!
After hearing that the Birmingham council changed its opinion and let a Muslim woman have her picture on her driver's licence with her face covered.
After hearing of a Primary School in Birmingham where a boy was told that for PE they could wear Football League shirts (Aston Villa, Birmingham, West Brom etc) but NOT an England shirt as it could offend others !
This prompted the editorial below written by a UK citizen.
Published in a British tabloid newspaper..
IMMIGRANTS. NOT BRITONS, MUST ADAPT.
Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on London , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Brits.
However, the dust from the attacks has barely settled and the 'politically correct' crowd begin complaining about the possibility that our patriotism is offending others.
I am not against immigration, nor do I hold a grudge against anyone who is seeking a better life by coming to Britain . However, there are a few things that those who have recently come to our country, and apparently some born here, need to understand.
This idea of England being a multicultural centre for community has served only to dilute our sovereignty and our national identity. As Britons, we have our own culture, our own society, our own language and our own lifestyle. This culture has been developed over centuries of wars, struggles, trials and victories fought by the untold masses of men and women who laid down their lives and of the millions of men and women who have sought freedom.
We speak ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, learn the language!
If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture... If St.George's cross offends you, then you should seriously consider a move to another part of this planet.
We are happy with our culture and have no desire to change, and we really don't care how you did things where you came from. This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this.
But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our National Motto, or Our Way of Life, I encourage you take advantage of one other great British freedom, 'THE RIGHT TO LEAVE'.
We didn't force you to come here. If you don't like it GO HOME!!
You asked to be here.. So accept the country that acceptedYOU. Pretty easy really, when you think about it..
Of course, this #$%$ posted by condom_head was made up by another racist like him and his mate cartoon#$%$, and is not real.
It started in the US, as these spoofs often do, and was floated around waiting for some gullible fool to post it on a football forum.
There's one born every minute .... and you all found your way here .... amazing!
A message from the Australian Prime minister.
Prime Minister Kevin Rudd - Australia
Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks..
Separately, Rudd angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation's mosques. Quote:
'IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It.. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks onBali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians. '
'This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom'
'We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society . Learn the language!'
'Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.'
'We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.'
'This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, 'THE RIGHT TO LEAVE'.'
'If you aren't happy here, then LEAVE.
We didn't force you to come here. You asked to be here.
So accept the country that has accepted you.'
Seem's fair enough to me, pity Gordon Brown hasn't got the same courage to speak out.
John im think you'll find it is NOT the people that are coming to this coun try that are complaing about xmas lights etc. i think you'll find its the ''do-gooders', British national liberals that are assuming xmas lights will cause offence. In other words, put that blame on your own doorstep, the do-gooders that do no good at all.
Oh come on Roy. A high percentage of ex-pats living abroad do work or get their pension sent there, i agrre with you on that point but there's a percentage of ex-pat Brits that do not. They steal, mug, rob, con, sell or traffic drugs, even murder, yes (shock horror) Brits out murdering other people, who'd have thought that with the Brits being so cultured and civilised?
If you were to work out the percentages of offenders from outside the UK offending in the UK against that of ex-pat Brits or British citizens offending in foreign countries, those percentages would not be far apart.
Many people that have to come to the UK from abroad DO contribute, many more that are British by birth and have always lived here do NOT!
Derek, you're way, way off in your assumption, I'm not butch. I have travelled to many many countries throughout Europe, The Americas and Asia You ask in any country who are the worst people that come to their country and the answer is always the same, British.
This is not OUR country. It is A country in which WE live, whoever that we may be.
All this OUR country #$%$ is a cause of division and so war. I've said it before and i'll say it again here, let the cleansing begin, this planet is over populated with humans, most of them moronic, a massive event is needed to cull mankind. Then there will be no OUR country and THEIR country, no more OUR race and THEIR race, there will just be people living whereever they happen to live.
