Berlusconi gets it!!!!!!!!!! US politicans please take note!!

Quote:
ROME - Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi said he does not want Italy to become a multiethnic, multicultural country, drawing plaudits from a right-wing ally and criticism from center-left opponents.

Berlusconi, a conservative, faces a stiff challenge in next month's national election, with opinion polls putting him behind his opponent, former premier Romano Prodi.

The poor economy, a main worry for voters in this election, has fed concerns about immigration by right-wing parties in Berlusconi's coalition, although the kind of work usually done by immigrants is shunned by many Italians. Surveys show that some Italians also perceive immigrants as being linked to crime.

"We don't want Italy to become a multiethnic, multicultural country. We are proud of our traditions," Berlusconi said Monday on state-run radio.

Isn't that ironic how many people here perceive Italian immigrants?

Seriously, though, what is America, if not multiethnic? I thought that's how we got started.

But not culturaly divided. Ethicity is not the issue, it is the value system. A little varitiy is nice, it breaks the bordom. Too much and "we" are marching in different directions.

E pluribus unum.
We accept all ethnic groups but they must become Americans, speak our language and accept our values and culture.
Keep your culture, be proud of it but don't expect us to accomodate you and change to satisfy you.
