In comments that mesh well with my post about the "honor killing" of Hatin Sürücü at the hands of her brothers here, Captain Ed illustrates what happens when political correctness compels a nation to enforce its laws unequally:
Germany needs to decide whether it wants to remain a united social construct or allow itself to become balkanized internally, with various minority groups conducting their own law enforcement, legislative, and judicial functions independent of the elected German government. If they do not have the will to enforce German law in Muslim communities, they will have begun the process by which civil wars start. In the meantime, the primary victims of German PCism will continue to be Muslim women, at the hands of their own families.
Yes. This is what happens when we, as westerners, cowed and benighted from some collective post-colonial shame refuse to acknowledge the ability and responsibility of all citizens to live within the laws of the land. Western governments create a tacitly racist structure by acting as if non-Western (and for the most part non-Asian) immigrants shouldn't be held to the same standards as native-born citizens. When you assume that some wholesale group is incapable of acting for the good of society, you relegate the group to perpetual second- or third-class status.
This is also an example of what multiculturalism has wrought. Respect for other cultures has taken primacy over civic duty to the point where national character is being supplanted in favor of a haphazard social structure that holds only westerners accountable and treats all other groups as children.
