Good bye, America???

I got this in email -- no author indicated. Immigration is not my greatest fear. I hope Governor Lam and Victor H. Davis are mistaken.

Subject: Goodbye America??

Please take the time to read this. It should frighten you!

We know Dick Lamm as the former Governor of Colorado. In that context his thoughts are particularly poignant. Last week there was an immigration overpopulation conference in Washington, DC, filled to capacity by many of America's finest minds and leaders. A brilliant college professor by the name of Victor Hansen Davis talked about his latest book, Mexifornia, explaining how immigration - both legal and illegal was destroying the entire state of California . He said it would march across the country until it destroyed all vestiges of The American Dream.

Moments later, former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm stood up and gave a stunning speech on how to destroy America. The audience sat spellbound as he described eight methods for the destruction of the United States. He said, If you believe that America is too smug, too self-satisfied, too rich, then let's destroy America. It is not that hard to do. No nation in history has survived the ravages of time. Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and fall! and that an autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide.

Here is how they do it, Lamm said:

First, to destroy America, turn America into a bilingual or multi-lingual and bicultural country. History shows that no nation can survive the tension, conflict, and antagonism of two or more competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; however, it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. The historical scholar, Seymour Lipset, put it this way: The histories of bilingual and bi-cultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension, and tragedy. Canada, Belgium, Malaysia, and Lebanon all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties with Basques, Bretons, and Corsicans.

Lamm went on:
Second, to destroy America, invent multiculturalism and encourage immigrants to maintain their culture. I would make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal. That there are no cultural differences. I would make it an article of faith that the Black and Hispanic dropout rates are due solely to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out of bounds.

Third, We could make the United States an Hispanic Quebec without much effort. The key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity. As Benjamin Schwarz said in the Atlantic Monthly recently: The apparent success of our own multiethnic and multicultural experiment might have been achieved not by tolerance but by hegemony.

Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentricity and what it meant to be an American, we are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together.

Lamm said, I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with the salad bowl metaphor. It is important to ensure that we have various cultural subgroups living in America enforcing their differences rather than as Americans, emphasizing their similarities.

Fourth, I would make our fastest growing demographic group the least educated. I would add a second underclass, unassimilated, undereducated, and antagonistic to our population. I would have this second underclass have a 50% dropout rate from high school.

My fifth point for destroying America would be to get big foundations and business to give these efforts lots of money. I would invest in ethnic identity, and I would establish the cult of Victimology. I would get all minorities to think that their lack of success was the fault of the majority. I would start a grievance industry blaming all minority failure on the majority population.

My sixth plan for Americas downfall would include dual citizenship, and promote divided loyalties. I would celebrate diversity over unity. I would stress differences rather than similarities. Diverse people worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each other - that is, when they are not killing each other. A diverse, peaceful, or stable society is against most historical precedent.

People undervalue the unity it takes to keep a nation together. Look at the ancient Greeks. The Greeks believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a common language and literature; and they worshipped the same gods. All Greece took part in the Olympic games. A common enemy, Persia , threatened their liberty. Yet all these bonds were not strong enough to overcome two factors: local patriotism and geographical conditions that nurtured political divisions. Greece fell. E. Pluribus Unum

From many, one. In that historical reality, if we put the emphasis on the pluribus instead of the Unum, we will balkanize America as surely as Kosovo.

Next to last, I would place all subjects off limits; make it taboo to talk about anything against the cult of diversity. I would find a word similar to heretic in the 16th century - that stopped discussion and paralyzed thinking.

Words like racist or xenophobe halt discussion and debate. Having made America a bilingual/bicultural country, having established multi-culturism, having the large foundations fund the doctrine of Victimology, I would next make it impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra: That because immigration has been good for America , it must always be good. I would make every individual immigrant symmetric and ignore the cumulative impact of millions of them.

In the last minute of his speech, Governor Lamm wiped his brow. Profound silence followed.

Finally he said,

Lastly, I would censor Victor Hanson Davis's book, Mexifornia. His book is dangerous. It exposes the plan to destroy America . If you feel America deserves to be destroyed, don't read that book.

There was no applause. A chilling fear quietly rose like an ominous cloud above every attendee at the conference. Every American in that room knew that everything Lamm enumerated was proceeding methodically, quietly, darkly, yet pervasively across the United States today. Discussion is being suppressed. Over 100 languages are ripping the foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness.

Even barbaric cultures that practice female genital mutilation are growing as we celebrate diversity. American jobs are vanishing into the Third World as corporations create a Third World in America - take note of California and other states - to date, ten million illegal aliens and growing fast. It is reminiscent of George Orwell's book,1984. In that story, three slogans are engraved in the Ministry of Truth building:

"War is peace,
Freedom is slavery, and
Ignorance is strength."

Governor Lamm walked back to his seat. It dawned on everyone at the conference that our nation and the future of this great democracy is deeply in trouble and worsening fast. If we don't get this immigration monster stopped within three years, it will rage like a California wildfire and destroy everything in its path, especially The American Dream....

Those who cannot learn from history, are doomed to repeat it!

"God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance and have eternal life."--the Bible



If our off-spring fail to read our
History since 1928, they will be doomed to repeat grievous mistakes.

With this is mind, I would urge you
to read our 'History' Post, dated
July 4th, 2006. In this very short
summary, it gives the student an excellent perspective of this ugly struggle today with Global Jihad.

You may wish to avoid Gen. George S. Patton Post; he has some rather "salty" language.

We have an Open Forum for Comments;
We hope for a 'Barb Wire' response.

Thank you. reb


Hi Barb, Welcome! Welcome!

I see that you found mohamed on our S/H weblog. It is interesting
to get an Egyptian student view,
because the Four Pilots of 9/11 were Egyptian Suicide Radicals.

Until I saw your comment, I thought that Loop Garoo & reb were the only two permitted access to the Mohamed Site.

You will notice, Mohamed does not allow anyone from His School, or His Country to access his site. It
may be that his Imam forbids him to
"Go Public" with his Site. I think that may be the real reason for a
lack of Local Traffic!

Or, maybe Mohamed fears for his own
safety. Who can guess?

Anyway, it's nice to know that he allows a woman to speak! I don't
believe the Saudi would allow it.
Such boldness from a woman, like
driving a car, or public speaking is severely punished in Modern Saudi Arabia! Americans know so very little about this weird Mesopotamian Mindset.

I like honest people, regardless of their belief, and you can be critical of any Post. You Are Welcome Any Time on our Snake Hunters Weblog! reb

I don't think he's moderating his comments --so how is his blog inaccessible to anyone right now? Or how can you tell if the whole blog is blocked in his country?

Seems my comment posted right away.
And I don't think he's answered. He may not have seen it.

thanks for your welcome to your blog! I appreciate the July 4, 2006 posting. I had received that piece as an email from a retired navy wife, my aunt.
