How to Destroy America

One of my oldest readers, Jack, sent me this disturbing e-mail. It was a transcript of a speech given by Richard Lamm, former Governor of Colorado to an Immigration conferance meeting in Washington D.C.

As an emigre myself, I have always been sensative to immigration issues, and I feel that this country has fallen from the correct path in many of these issues with the advent of PC multiculturalism, bilingual education, deference to foreign cultures in governmental services, and not too long ago, referance to foriegn laws by our Supreme Court in making a judgement. We are giving up our national identity on the alter of a false ideal; that all cultures are equal and should be held to without expectation of assimilation into the American culture.

Don't get me wrong, I am proud of my heritage, and I never wnat to forget where I came from, BUT I came here to be an AMERICAN, had I wanted to hold to my native culture, I would have stayed where I was. Remembering and respecting a heritage is a good thing to do, but trying to live that heritage to the exclusion of becoming a part of the new culture you find yourself in is destructive.

Without further blathering on my part, listen to what Governor Lamm has to say on the effects of uncontrolled immigration , and low expectations of newcomers top our shores:

We all 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 American's finest minds and leaders. A brilliant
college professor named 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

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

1. "Here is how they do it," Lamm said: "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 bicultural societies that do not assimilate are
histories of turmoil, tension, and tragedy.' Canada, Belgium, Malaysia,
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."

2. Lamm went on: "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 to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other
explanation is out of bounds.

3. "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 ethnocentrically and what it meant to be an American, we
are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together.'"

4. 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 reinforcing their differences
rather than as Americans, emphasizing their similarities."

5. "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."

6. "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 their lack of
success was the fault of the majority. I would start a grievance industry
blaming all minority failure on the majority population."

7. "My sixth plan for America's 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 over come 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 can balkanize America as surely as Kosovo."

8. "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-culturist, 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."

9. 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. Every
discussion is being suppressed. Over 100 languages are ripping the
foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness.
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

Thanks Delfts. Maybe we should just bury our heads in the sand and forget it

How can this nation ever survive when we have all these separate organizations: UNICEF, NAACP, Affirmative Action, NOW, ACL effing U?
These org's need to UNITE! Get a handle on things! Become one huge power packed watchdog! Everyone equal! One color, one gender, one race,...

I made myself nauseated, I must go puke now.
