Big Government Advocates Against Multiculturalism

Thought this was interesting - Andrew Mellon from Big Government wrote a couple paragraphs attacking "liberals, progressives, socialists, statists, communists" as enemies of civilization who argue for "moral relativism," with one branch of this assault being multiculturalism.
Liberals, progressives, socialists, statists, communists — all enemies of civilization argue all issues on the basis of moral relativism, one odious derivation of which is multiculturalism. There are many arguments for why such principles are wrong. But perhaps the most obvious problem with moral relativism and its counterparts is that from which moral relativism springs: the idea that there is no objective truth.

If there is no objective truth as the Sophists argue, then how can the statement that there is no objective truth be true? If nothing is true, then how can the assumption be made that it is true that there is no such thing that is truly inherently good or inherently bad, or that it is true that there is no culture that is truly better than any other culture? To argue in favor of moral relativism or multiculturalism requires a belief that there is objective truth; this is a conundrum that Leftists cannot argue away.

Since all Leftism stems from a fallacious premise, all of its aspects must be fallacious. If only anyone would think it through, perhaps we could right this ship.

Here is the definition of "multiculturalism" according to Wikipedia:
Multiculturalism is the acceptance or promotion of multiple ethnic cultures, applied to the demographic make-up of a specific place, usually at the organizational level, e.g. schools, businesses, neighborhoods, cities or nations. In this context, multiculturalists advocate extending equitable status to distinct ethnic and religious groups without promoting any specific ethnic, religious, and/or cultural community values as central.
I guess that whole concept of America being a melting pot was just a bunch of liberal propaganda and that America was destined to be the worlds largest WASP country club...
