Multiculturalism

« Back to Glossary Index

The “belief that a society should respect and promote all the various cultures or ethnic groups of which it is composed.” The debate over multiculturalism often emerges in discussions over immigration, political correctness, and national language, and the concept is mostly supported by liberals and globalists. Contrary to what they argue, it leads to national disunity, weakening, and ultimately, destruction – it is a threat to Americanism, which does not judge people based on their skin color or ethnicity. The doctrine exalts foreign culture, language and national identity over historically American values and identity under the code word “diversity,” and it’s validity depends upon limiting the definition of culture to morally neutral criteria. Liberals have used multiculturalism to excuse illegal immigration, avoid confronting radical Islam and terrorism, impose atheistic views on the American public, and censor Christian worship.
