Default Are they seeing the light ?

This is a long read . But i have been barking this for a long time and it looks like some so called smart folks are catching on too .



FOR THOSE OF YOU ON THE "CONSERVATIVE"
SIDE OF THE FENCE, READ THIS AND LEARN TO UNDERSTAND YOUR FEELINGS
BETTER THAN EVER.

FOR THOSE OF YOU NOT ON THE
"CONSERVATIVE" SIDE OF THE FENCE, READ AND LEARN FROM A DIFFERENT
VIEWPOINT.

Please take the time to read this; it
ought to scare the pants off 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& nbsp;
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."
His tory 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 ind ependence.
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 b ounds.

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& nbsp;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 America's downfall
would include dual citizenship,
and promote divided loyalties. I would
celebrate diversity over unity.
I would stress differences&nbs p;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 l iberty. 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 -&nbs p;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 spee ch,
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 Statestoday. Discussion&nb sp;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 pe ace," "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. Trust me
NOTHING ;is going to happen if you don't !

I don't know if that is true in the way it was stated but I know that diversity is nothing more than a BS plan for legal segregation.

This piece puts things very nicely - and passes the Snopes test.

This sums up a lot of my feelings, especially around the BS/subterfuge passed of as "multiculturalism" and "diversity".

I'm not against any group, since most of us are the progeny of immigrants (I don't count the 1/16th Canadian "first nations" in my family tree). I DO get aggravated with immigrants (especially illegal ones) who want to come here and, instead of joining us, want to change us into whereever they came from (there is a reason they left, right?).

Wow. That was a great read. Thanks Grandman. I will be printing that off to show my bro. He will love it.

That hit it on the head about encouraging incdoming to keep embracing their culture and don't "be American". I liked the comment about being a salad now and no longer a melting pot.

I bet some would call that guy a racist still.

I got this in an Email about two months ago. After living in California for the last 5 years, It's amazing how much of this letter I can relate too.
I now live in Michigan, where my wife and I grew up. I am currently writing this from San Francisco while my wife and I are on our honeymoon. The people in this state/ country are so different. I speak of the majority, because there are a lot of great people here also.

Like the Iraqi lady that wanted to go out and SUPPORT the US after 9/11 in the streets by waving a US flag. She tried to get her neighbors and friends and nne would join. They told her she was becoming too "American". She wrote a book and was on a bunch of the talk shows but don't remember her name.
