How To Destroy America

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 Davis Hansen 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. Make it an article of belief
that all cultures are equal. That there are no cultural differences. 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 nce 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 en courage 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 the ir lack of success was the fault of the majority. I would
start a grievance industry blaming all minority failure on the majority

"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 en emy, 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 t he
'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 Am erica 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 Davis
Hanson's book "Mexifornia." His book is dangerous. It exposes the plan to destroy
America. If you feel America. deserves to be destroyed, don't re ad that

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.

If you care for and love our country as I do, take the time to pass this on
just as I did for you. NOTHING is going to happen if you don't.
