Tony Blair: We Must Force Migrants To Integrate To Combat Rise Of Far Right


  He claims that the ‘failure’ of multiculturalism has led to a rise in bigotry and that successive governments had “failed to find the right balance between diversity and integration”,

He also claimed that the concept of multiculturalism has been misused as a way to justify a “refusal to integrate”.

 The Guardian reports: Blair makes the pointed intervention in a report by his Institute for Global Change, which backs forcing schools to have an intake that reflects local diversity, creating a compulsory citizenship programme for teenagers and toughening enforcement against the perpetrators of hate speech.

 It also calls for compulsory citizenship education, a ban on segregated shift patterns and the creation of a new cabinet post created to oversee integration.

“Over a significant period of time, including when we were last in government, politics has failed to find the right balance between diversity and integration,” Blair writes in a foreword to the report. “On the one hand, failures around integration have led to attacks on diversity and are partly responsible for a reaction against migration. On the other hand, the word multiculturalism has been misinterpreted as meaning a justified refusal to integrate, when it should never have meant that.

“Particularly now, when there is increasing evidence of far-right bigotry on the rise, it is important to establish the correct social contract around the rights and duties of citizens, including those who migrate to our country.”

 The report backs a new form of “digital identity verification” – a return to Blair’s support for ID cards that caused huge divisions when the idea was pushed by his government and later abandoned. It also backs the idea of increased funding for language tuition and handing asylum seekers earlier access to work.

 It comes following an increase in religious or racially motivated hate crimes. According to Home Office data, such crimes increased from 37,417 in 2013-14 to 79,587 in 2017-18. MPs such as Labour’s Naz Shah have linked the increase with support for extreme far-right groups.

 However, in remarks likely to attract criticism from migrant rights groups, Blair warns that enforcing greater integration by new arrivals is a crucial part of solving the issue.

 Blair writes: “In this report, we make it clear that there is a duty to integrate, to accept the rules, laws and norms of our society that all British people hold in common and share, while at the same time preserving the right to practise diversity, which is fully consistent with such a duty.

“Without the right to, for example, practise one’s faith, diversity would have no content; but without the duty to integrate, ‘culture’ or ‘faith’ can be used as a way of upsetting that basic social contract that binds us together.

“Government cannot and should not be neutral on this question. It has to be a passionate advocate and, where necessary, an enforcer of the duty to integrate while protecting the proper space for diversity. Integration is not a choice; it is a necessity.”

You don't say..

Tony Blair, is "Jewish" he is pushing the Global Migration Compact.

Is the RIGHT WING practicing bigotry... or is their conduct the misinterpreted desire of the Majority to retain their right of FREE ASSOCIATION?   It is not bigotry... to desire to live in a community that has social and ethical standards compatible with ones cultural view... It is only human nature to seek out like companions and life styles.  Natural order and discrimination present in the social behavior of the majority only becomes bigotry when those views are used to directly deny the minority equal protection under the law. 

Minorities don't have the right to insist... that, the Majority accept social and ethical behvior not compatible with long standing customs and social behaior. Instead, it is the minority that is to assimilate; too, adopt the majority view... not the other way around. 

In fact, it is this PC view... that the majority must accomodate the minority... which has created the social unrest, bigotry and racisim, so vissible in society today.  It is the false idea... that people can be made to accept minority views... often, replacing social and cultural norms, that are hundreds of years old, sacking the history and cultural identity of the majority must stop... PC must stop insisting the majority accomodate the minority... it is simply WRONG and history proves it only creates more strife not willing accomodation.

Tony Blair, long live the Queen England's UN Global Migration Compact.

Oops Great Britian is leaving the Global migration pact ... via its exit from the EU.

 Seeing how England was the first, there is no signs they will undo what they started. Seeing how the British are building the NWO UN Global Migration Compact, through the Rothschild family, I see no evidence of them standing down.

It is past time to revoke Facebooks, Google, Twiter, etc., exempt from the FCC code...  and its restrictions on limiting free speech.

Force migrants to intergrate.... tell that to a Muslim and hold on to your head as you might loose it.. 

Our immigration and naturalizaion laws require a certain amount of intergration or assymilation by immagrants wanting to become naturalized citizens... however, they are not like the law of the past... when immigrants must have a working knowledge of English, pass a test on our Constitutional form of Government in English and take their naturalization oath  in English.

ALERT ALERT

1 Billion Dollar Net Worth!!! Oberlin College Claims Poverty To Avoid Paying Punitive Damages To Gibson’s Bakery

Although IRS reports show the university is worth around $1 billion, Oberlin College still claimed poverty to avoid paying punitive damages to Gibson’s Bakery.

As Breitbart News reported this week, the far-left Oberlin College lost a defamation case filed by Gibson’s Bakery after a local jury found the university liable for falsely accusing the family bakery of racism.

The jury ordered Oberlin on Friday to pay Gibson’s $11.2 million in compensatory damages for defamation and intentional interference with a business.

Legal Insurrection reported on Thursday that “the jury awarded a total of $33 million in punitive damages, which will probably be reduced by the court to $22 million because of the state law cap at twice compensatory.”

Legal Insurrection has been following the case for two years — since the beginning — and reports that the school’s only defense against a sizable punitive award is to pretend it is poor, despite holding assets that amount to a billion — with a “b” — dollars and despite paying some of its staffers more than a half-million dollars a year:

Oberlin College was so hellbent on getting the message out that their cash liquidity was in such dire straits — as the eight-person jury was figuring out if they wish to add $22.4 million to the school’s legal verdict bill — that they brought out the school’s president, Carmen Twillie Ambar to the stand to tell that part the story.

“We’ve created deficits … and over the next ten years, if this continues, that is unsustainable and we will not exist,” Ambar told the jury. She even indicated the school’s grants — about $60 million a year from the school, and lots of students get those scholarships as only 10% of them pay the full $70,000 a year — were important to preserve as “the accessibility of education” was a key component of the school’s purpose.

However…

The college has more than $1 billion in funds and net assets according to the latest IRS 990 form, an endowment fund that had grown from $440 million to $887 million in the last 20 years, and because of its non-profit status, pays no taxes on any property it owns.

It also had 18 members of their administration making more than $100,00 a year. The president and chief financial officer of the school were both making more than $500,000 a year.

Grifters gonna grift…

The day after Donald Trump won the presidency, this nutball school apparently decided to take out its impotent woke-rage on this poor bakery, which has been part of the Oberlin community for more than a century.

It all started when three Oberlin students (who would later plead guilty in a plea deal) attempted to steal bottles of wine.

The proprietors caught the students and, while attempting to hold them until police arrived, were allegedly roughed up by the shoplifters. But because the students are black and the proprietors white — and with no respect for due process or facts — Oberlin staffers and students decided some vigilantism was in order and did everything in their considerable power to destroy this local bakery forever, to smite it off the map.

Classes were canceled so hundreds of students could protest in front of the small store while enjoying free food and drink, courtesy of the school. School staffers handed out fliers that basically described the family-owned bakery as the local branch of the KKK.

As a result, the bakery had to lay off almost all of its employees and barely avoided bankruptcy.

In the end, the three shoplifters said race had nothing to do with what happened.

For those of you interested in incurring $200,000 in debt before you even enter the workforce, it looks as though you can major in Mob Justice at Oberlin.
