A friend sent me this viral email about immigration. I'm glad he did.
It gives me a chance to segue into a discussion that I have been wanting to address.
The email details a speech given by former Colorado Governor Richard Lamm, and his views on how to destroy America. The article follows:
Sobering thesis. Sort of makes you stop, look and think !
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 bicultural 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, Corsicans and Muslims.'
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 multi-ethnic and multicultural experiment might have been achieved not by tolerance but by hegemony. Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentricy 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 plation.'
'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 precept. 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-cultum, 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.
Although I understand what brings this particular Governor to these rather desperate conclusions...(Colorado has always had a large migrant-worker population. Even when I lived there in the 80's, the amount of Mexicans amazed me), he makes some major errors in his speech and more importantly doesn't bring it to it's obvious conclusion.
Anyway, Let's look at his arguments point by point.
Firstly, I have to take exception with the "American Dream" notion. What I think the good Governor fails to realize is that it is just that...a dream. It always was. It was never the country that it was designed to be by our founding fathers. And although it was a great idea from the start, it never really got legs.
Secondly, and I don't know how many times I need to say this,(and I can't understand why so few seem to be able to grasp this simple fact) we are NOT a god damned democracy! That is a label that was applied to this country in the late 1950's and forward after a jewish inspired attempt at communism failed, by the jewish-owned media. We are and were always intended to be a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC. Rule of law as set down in our(now shredded) constitution. If one politician could kindly show me where in the constitution, or the bill of rights, or even the damned Declaration of Independence, it even mentions one word about democracy, I will eat my sneakers. However, on the other hand I can show many examples of how we were warned AGAINST such a form of government in the words and documents of our founding fathers.
Then there is his use of the historical evidence that "it never worked before" argument about multicultural societies in the past. I have to disagree with that. I would cite the "that was then this is now" observation countering this argument, by pointing out that in this age of technological world-wide communication that the differences in culture and how common populaces view them, has changed radically. Other cultures, without all of the evil booga-booga ascribed to them by the hebrew media, do not hold the fear power that they wielded in ages passed. If we aren't constantly told that alternate cultures are those of some manufactured "enemy" status by the six-0-clock news, we are left with the true charm of multicultural existence.
Now we move on to the points with which I agree wholeheartedly, but for different reasons.
This country, as well as others around the world, have by design become what he describes as a "salad bowl" of multiculturalism. I agree. And it is getting more so by the day. There is a reason for this.
Whether you agree with my view that jews are at the bottom of this, or you believe that it's Illuminati, bankers, or even the Masons...you have to agree that there is a "them". Those of the financial upper crust of the world that through their power and influence are directing(or trying rather successfully to direct) the nature of things.
Looking around you, you must also agree that they clearly do not have the individual human's best interest at heart. They couldn't care less what people die or are enslaved by their efforts to attain more and more wealth and power. They are quite happy to see a huge division between their class as rulers and ours as servants to them. As George Carlin once described them: "it's a big club...and we ain't in it".
So, if you accept these precepts, than you must also follow me in understanding that this enforced multiculturalism and the way it is being pushed upon us is also part of their plan. "They" want the friction that it causes when it is coupled with the separatist feature that they pummel us with constantly via their media...through their constant reminders to be "proud" of your ethnic culture. I was always taught that "pride comes before a fall"...and it is true.
They WANT the friction between cultures within countries. It helps their cause, to distract from them and their machinations and it keeps the "divide and conquer" ethic alive and well for their use on us. It is so obvious that a child can see it. And we as an under-class are falling for it.
So, in my opinion, Governor Lamm is on the right track by identifying this purposeful manipulation, but one: responds incorrectly(just as they want us to), with hatred for all things "un-American", and two: for not identifying those "behind" this social engineering.
He would do well, as we all would, to put down our placards against immigration and concentrate our efforts on exposing the genuinely racist tribe responsible. Once this overthrow of the "them" is accomplished, we can restrict immigration for now. Then give time and instruction to those that have already come here as part of the "tribe's" destructive plan, to "meld" into the mainstream of our American "pot" to produce the harmony that we all want and need to see the world and ourselves more clearly.
