It's finally out!
It's finally out!

The Crises of Multiculturalism: Racism in a Neoliberal Age is finally ready. My co-author, Gavan and I went to pick it up and meet the delightful Zed Books editors at their offices in London last week. Here I am checking it out. The book will be officially out next week and a blog to accompany it ready soon. We welcome any reviews, friendly or otherwise; in fact, we’re ready, if anyone – Christian Joppke, Christopher Caldwell, etc. – wants a fight!

The preface to the book has been written by the entirely awesome Gary Younge with kind endorsements from Sara Ahmed, David Theo Goldberg and Howard Winant amongst others. Here’s what Winant has to say:

‘Lentin and Titley’s fierce critique provides a much-needed critical analysis of multiculturalism’s ineffectuality in opposing the racism rising in Europe today. The smiling rhetoric of tolerance, we learn here, is still produced by sharp white teeth. Highly recommended!’

    muslims do not assimilate into western society because islam is a theocracy and demands supremacy. there is no radical, moderate, hijacked or any other nuanced semanticism type of islam. there is only islam which is based on the life of a murdering 8th century warlord.

    the twin fogs of political correctness & ignorance must be dispersed before western society better understands this menace. even a brief review of islamic theology & history quickly exposes the deadly roots of this evil ideology.

    see the links in the pdf version below for more accurate info about islam

    islam is a horrible ideology for human rights

    5 key things about islam

    1. mythical beliefs – all religions have these (faith) because its part of being a religion: having beliefs without proof until after the believer dies. the problem is people will believe almost anything.

    2. totalitarianism – islam has no seperation of church and state: sharia law governs all. there is no free will in islam: only submission to the will of allah as conveniently determined by the imams who spew vapors to feather their own nests. there are no moderate muslims: they all support sharia law.

    3. violence – islam leads the pack of all religions in violent tenets for their ideology & history: having eternal canonical imperatives for supremacy at all costs and calling for violence & intimidation as basic tools to achieve these goals.

    4. dishonesty – only islam has dishonesty as a fundamental tenet: this stems from allah speaking to mohamhead & abrogation in the koran which is used to explain how mo’s peaceful early life was superseded by his warlord role later.

    5. misogyny – present day islam is still rooted in 8th century social ethics: treating females as property of men good only for children, severely limiting their activities, dressing them in shower curtains and worse.

    conclusions ??

    there really are NO redeeming qualities for this muddled pile of propaganda.

    islam is just another fascist totalitarian ideology used by power hungry fanatics on yet another quest for worldwide domination and includes all the usual human rights abuses & suppression of freedoms.
