Deputy Prime Minister: Multicultural Society is a Failure

Maxime Verhagen, Deputy Prime Minister and Leader of the Christian Democrats (CDA) has said that the idea of letting non-Western immigrants and autochthonous Dutch live next to each other has totally failed. According to Verhagen, Dutchmen do not feel at home in their country, nor do the non-Dutch. In the United States if you ask people who they are, they say that they are Americans first and then state what their country of origin is. In the Netherlands however, there is no pride in one’s country by the autochthonous Dutch and no pride in being Dutch of the non-Western immigrants and their offspring.
