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.

Judicial Watch->  Emails Show Dossier-Connected Obama State Dept Officials Set ‘Face-To-Face’ Meeting On ‘Russian Matter’ Shortly Before 2016 Election

Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday released 84 pages of documents showing Obama’s State Department was central to pushing the ‘Trump-Russia’ hoax shortly before the 2016 election.

The email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a very close associate to Christopher Steele, show them discussing a ‘face-to-face’ meeting in New York on a ‘Russian matter’ in September of 2016.

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch and The Daily Caller News Foundation today released 84 pages of documents, including a September 2016 email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a close associate of dossier author Christopher Steele, discussing a “face-to-face” meeting on a “Russian matter.”

(In June 2016 Nuland permitted a meeting between Steele and the FBI’s legal attaché in Rome. Nuland told CBS News that the State Department knew about the Steele dossier by July 2016.)

According to an op-ed Winer wrote for The Washington Post in 2018, also in September 2016, “Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the “dossier… I prepared a two-page summary and shared it with Nuland, who indicated that, like me, she felt that the secretary of state needed to be made aware of this material.”

A September 17, 2016, email exchange between Nuland and Winer – that was classified in the interest of national defense or foreign policy – discusses the political situation in Libya, but also brings up a “Russian matter:”

Good. I’ll reach out when im there Sunday. [Redacted]

If Victoria Nuland’s name sounds familiar it’s because she has been on Judicial Watch’s radar for a long time and in many of TGP’s previous reports.

In December 2018, Judicial Watch released documents revealing that Victoria Nuland was involved in the Obama State Department’s urgent gathering of classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office.

In a related lawsuit, Judicial Watch is suing the State Department communications between Ambassador Nuland and employees of Fusion GPS, as well as top ranking Department of Justice, FBI, and State Department officials.

“The Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President Trump with the Russia smear,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These new emails further show that senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.”
