    wow, thank God this guy showed up, I mean, this thread was truly in desperate need of yet one more squawking wannabe wise-ass ...(not).

    Anyways, in case anyone missed it, this is the link:

    2012 AR Conference | American Renaissance
    More and more spamming the thread with random information on a coffee-group in the U.S.

    Can you not have a debate about multiculturalism and Ireland?

    p.s. This isn't a racial issue.

    'Spamming' indeed.



    Oh, is that right...........
    The cheese discussion was actually on-topic. We were talking about the Multicultural nature of Irish Cheese cultures used in Modern Irish cheese production.

    Topic of the thread question - if you have not read the OP.
    ........Are We Finally A Modern Multicultural Nation?





    Your above post on some coffee-group in Nashville isn't on-topic.

    To be fair, NewdDaw & co aren't very forthcoming on "the reasons why".

    Yes, well, the thread was never really going to stay on-topic was it?!

    It begs the question of whether it's a good thing, what it means, and whether the words 'finally' and 'modern' are justified in the context - but if we are keeping it strictly under the terms of the OP, then I think Ireland is a modern nation but not a multicultural one. We seem immune to some of the silliness you'd read about in the Netherlands, Britain, etc. and part of it is because the Irish consider culture something to be defended in a way that the British and Dutch don't, something we share with anyone else who has felt under threat.
    If we can open our doors (a bit) to immigration while assimilating our newcomers properly we will have succeeded where others have failed. Then we'll 'finally' be a 'modern' nation.

    No it wasn't. It was just another part of an admitted thread hijack tactic, one they plan to use in the future whenever they want to siderail convos containing voices they don't wanna hear:



    But please, carry on, watching you try to control this conversation has been good fun
    The cheese discussion was, decidedly, on-topic.
    You have made very little attempt to debate, you keep spamming the thread some nonsense on some coffee-group meeting in Nashville.

    We'll try it again.

    I do agree, assimilation is the way forward. Well it wouldn't truly be total assimilation either, maybe a slight bit of a slight amalgam of bits and pieces.
    Tim, do you have any idea why posters, who are so vociferously against Multiculturalism and what implementing multicultural initiatives would actually entail,
    can't actually explain what it is ?

    Carry on!
    I'm constantly asking the question that you, and quite a few other posters, keep failing to answer. You are the person derailing the thread for yourself.
    You could get involved but you decide not to. Why is that? Do you suffer from low self-esteem and feel that you have nothing to offer to the debate?

    Is that why you refuse to even attempt to answer the following question?

    Platitudes?, Bit rich coming from you considering the banality of most of your posts!
