    An interesting email I received today:

    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

    "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 bi-cultural 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."

    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.

    "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.'" 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."

    "Fourth, I would make our fastest growing demographic group the least
    educated. I would add a second underclass, unassimilated, undereducated,
    and antagoistic 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 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 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 th 'pluribus' instead of
    the 'unum,' we can 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. 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

    Different times, different people, but the message is the same.

    This tired line of crap was used whenever there has been an influx of 'dirty' people whether they were Irish, German, Polish, or Jews. :rolleyes:

    Closed because it's not gun-related, as required by our mission statement.

    You could step over to APS, Oleg's off-topic playground if you wanted to discuss this.
