Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Speaking just for myself - no, you could not argue in defense of James Watson without being attacked. He was arguing that certain races are inherently inferior to others.  On the other hand, while I'm pretty pro-immigration, there are plenty of non-racist arguments one can use against it. Same goes for multiculturalism.

The informal norms which you describe are what I think of as soft political correctness, something I'm rather strongly in favour of.
