No multi-cultural society has ever survived!
Study history.
Here in Canada we have two official languages...so far it has worked out OK.
But
A suburb of Vancouver ...Richmond...is mostly Chinese.
Drives me nuts when I can't read more than %60 of street signs...
What are they saying in Chinese?
Fortunatly Richmond is mostly land fill.
When the big EQ happens it will sink.

The difference is this...I went to live in spain i bought a villa for 120 thousand i opened an account and filled it with dosh..I started a company i paid my taxes more than even the spanish do..i went out of my way to intergrate with the spanish..i love their lifestyle..i learnt how to speak enough to start befoe i arrived..I was an asset to their society ..i made them money..i employed only spanis at high rates of pay and i respected their way of life and tried never to change their systems..I was always a grateful guest..

this is the only way to enter a country..

if your country is poor and shit..It is your duty as a human being to change that system by hook or crook for you and your fellow man..

You do not become cheap labour and enter a country to benifit your crappy existance and fuck their system by undercutting their labour market to such a degree it enforces hatred and division. you do not enter anothers house and expect to gain from their good nature..That is wrong..wrong wrong..Humans must make their own birth place just fair and economically viable and bring wealth into a country from their own ..

Otherwise you are just a wanker line jumping no good slave.

I rest my case.

She's what we call a "Dumme Kuh"...My whole family hates her. Her opinion does not reflect the opinion of all germans...;)

Well, it should. Your family sounds mentally challenged.

OK - Don't go to a foreign country unless you can speak the language. Let's let the lines on a map dictate where the free people can go. I live in the UK and if I choose to go to wherever, I would expect to be welcomed (tolerated at least) regardless of my local linguistic knowledge.

I also lived in Germany for 9 years and learnt to speak the lingo as best I could. In the UK people don't like it when people tax receiving/paying 'citizens' can't speak the lingo but still, just because one tyrannical regime rules one country from the next shouldn't mean that people aren't free to travel across the planet that they were born onto.

I agree with her.

While it is always good to know another language and to appreciate other cultures, a demanded cultural suicide of the host country by the immigrant community should NEVER be tolerated.
 Quoting: Doomamatrix


I also agree with her - and you.

There are practical reasons also. If all the ballots, government printouts, signs, etc. have to be in another language as is done in the U.S. it is costly. Plus the immigrants have no reason to learn the native language or even use it if they do.

In U.S. our schools have been dumbed down to accommodate the kids not proficient in English.

Re: Speak German Or You're Not Welcome In Germany...Oh Shit!!!!!!!!!!
Look, if she says an imigrant NEEDS TO LEARN GERMAN or has to go, ok I can agree, people have to work and so speak german.
But closing up against all immigrants not speaking german when they want to enter is very.....not european...

I think the US should make friends with Islam and bring peace back to the world...


The problem is - EVERYBODY can enter, all they have to say is Asylum. If we didn't let them in, we were called that terrible "N" word, which ticks everybody off and quite honestly it's getting tiring.
The law is, if you want to otherwise immigrate and get a work permit, you have to learn german. Just like I had to swear I know english before I got my immigration papers for the US. Once I arrived there, I was suddenly facing difficulties because it seemed I had to also learn mexican - that ticked me off too.
The system is flawed everywhere imho.
But why bring religion into this? Many many years ago we had no problems...I had many muslim classmates, turkish, all hard working families, doing the dirty work germans didn't want to do. nobody had a problem then.
Now we're facing a different story - history is repeating itself. The economy sucks, so we have to find a culprit. Merkel's statements are pure election talks to get some extra votes. In the end nothing will change, the law is already in place. Instead of addressing the real issues, she uses this topic - low...again, history is repeating itself. Same BS propaganda on every side and in every country.
TPTB must have a field day with us
 Quoting: Babsi

Allright that is OK. Look OUR CULTURE is supposed to be one in where EVERYBODY has a chance. I don't think I will ever be a rich asshole, but ok, maybe the chance is there.
So, if people do try and learn the language that's ok with me, they should have a chance to learn more and do more.
I thought this was different, but it is just about mandatory learning of the language of the country....that's ok, no biggie....

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1127785


I respect people like you. And I agree with what you say.

Yes, there are lots of people in Germany that shouldn't be there and are causing problems. But you want to know something? The screwed up thing is, THEY let them in, because we HAD to when no other country wanted them, for example all the Kosovo Albanians, otherwise we're being name called. But most of the foreigners do work, we've always had a diverse community. I grew up with turkish, spanish and italian children. And each their families were like you, hard working, paying taxes, children speaking german etc.
They screwed up a few years back there - and who causes the most trouble? It's a country I don't want to name now, and they're not muslim btw. I hate how she uses this as propaganda - she will cause more hate and division and soon there will be hate crimes and civil unrests. Not the people are the problem, it's the government.

Ok what does this have to do with national socialism and adolf? Many cities already have ghettos here, but voluntary ones, if you go to parts of berlin or cologne you would think you are in istanbul.
Now wanting immigrants to at least try to integrate is too much to ask? Its not like we are invading people, expelling and torturing the inhabitants like certain countries.
This has nothing to do with racism, my father is iranian, we have ditched islam and speak german very well.

Re: Speak German Or You're Not Welcome In Germany...Oh Shit!!!!!!!!!!
Dont let them fool you.

Merkel is a flip flop.

Her party among the others is responsible for mass immigration of poor people into germany over the last decades.

Poor people dont have a chance in their homeland, so they go out and search for other countries where they might have a chance. Surely they have not much chances for work in highly industrial countries with a good education niveau. But welfare in germany is better than welfare somrwhere in Anatolia. It's much more comfortable to live from welfare money in a rich state than to be a farmer with no welfare money in a poor country.

A country can absorb such immigrants to a certain point. But at a certain point the balance is lost. It's the moment when you have whole neighborhoods in big cities which are only inhabited by people from certain countries. Living their own rules from their homeland. You know the rest...so called "no go areas", crimes etc. ppt

If you enter anothers country and become a burden on their sytem health service and state..Then that is wrong..Yes the planet is all ours but its not a free for all..we pay taxes all our lives in the uk and then expect rightfully to use those services if we fall upon hard times through no fault of our own or health issues. Freedom to roam is great but do not expect to take before you have given twice that amount in anothers land. as a mark of respect which may sound old fashioned it is your duty to learn their language..treat anothers country as you would expect a good guest to treat your house.

Welfare is not the problem, integration is, it is not like the welfare is lost, all that money goes right back into the economy, much of it even directly as tax, 20% of what they spend is value added tax, then add all the taxes on gas and drugs.
But when immigrants build small countries inside a country, that is so different, problems will arise.
