We all know Dick Lamm as the former
Governor of Colorado. In that context, his thoughts are particularly
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 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) ;"Turn America into a bilingual or multi-lingual and bi-cultural
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
"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: (Second:) "Invent
'multi-culturalism' 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. (Third:) 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 multi-cultural
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 sub-groups 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 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
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 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 can balkanize America as surely as Kosovo."
"Next to last, (Seventh:) 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,' (Eighth:) 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 sympatric 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
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
