Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Maybe if we on the left had a few provocative polemicists like Steyn writing for our side, we'd start making some progress in the battle for ideas. Our problem is we require ourselves to be fair, reasonable and hew to what we think of as "the truth" (tm)

Steyn's a moron and a retrograde ass, but he's not dumb. Look at all the attention he's getting. Each eyeball attracted by the hullabaloo is an eyeball that reads the basis for his polemics, usually in the same tribune, at the same time. Live and learn fellow lefties.

And incidentally, multiculturalism isn't by definition a progressive value: plenty of us on the left think it is a big mistake.
