An 8-Step Plan for America's Downfall

I just received this message from a good friend on my personal account:

Subject: Extremely important in light of the current debate

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 American'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 Ameri can 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. 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 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 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 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 rather than similarities. Diverse people worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each other - that is, when they are not killing each other. A diverse, pea ceful, 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 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-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 t he 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 a nd 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 (REPUBLIC) is deeply in trouble and worsening fast. If we don't get this immigration monster stopped within three yea rs, it will rage like a California wildfire and destroy everything in its path, especially The American Dream.

Thought provoking?

God be with you.

All things considered, it seems that Governor Lamm's "Plan" is well on its way.

    Wow! What a post!
    I will be honest with you; until I read this piece I was much more concerned about Islamofascist terrorism than I was immigration woes. After my entire heritage is German/Jew. I understand the need to find a better life. But guess what? I do not speak German, Yiddish or Hebrew. I speak English with a Pacific Northwest accent (probably with a decades worth of Okie twang thrown in). I consider my heritage to be related to the Founding Fathers of the American Revolution that initiated the greatest successful political experiment in the world's history - The United States of America.

    So yeah, now I am concerned. If Hispanics wish to enjoy the benefits of American prosperity and culture, they need to assimilate. My family did!

    Hey, Theway2k:

    You are not alone. I had the same response. I think this is one of the most significant speeches of the 21st century, and congratulations to Eleanor for posting this. I certainly plan to get this to our lousy politicians (also Pacific Northwest). My family roots come from 19th century England and godknowswhereorwhenorhow for the other side. All of them were real Americans, and they handed it down to us to carry on. And carry on, we will. It is almost incomprehensible to me that there are people who want to destroy America. From without, I can better understand. But, from within, I cannot understand--or tolerate.

    SUCH and IMPORTANT distinction to make! Thank you for posting this!

    THROUGHOUT THE HISTORY of the American republic, there has been a tension between two virtues necessary to sustain republican government: vigilance and responsibility. Vigilance is the jealousy on the part of the people that constitutes a necessary check on those who hold power, lest they abuse it. As Thomas Jefferson wrote, "[I]t is jealousy and not confidence which prescribes limited constitutions, to bind those whom we are obliged to trust with power."

    But while vigilance is a necessary virtue, it may, if unchecked, lead to an extremism that incapacitates a government, preventing it from carrying out even its most necessary and legitimate purposes, e.g. providing for the common defense. "Jealousy," wrote Alexander Hamilton, often infects the "noble enthusiasm for liberty" with "a spirit of narrow and illiberal distrust."

    Responsibility, on the other hand, is the prudential judgment necessary to moderate the excesses of political jealousy, thereby permitting limited government to fulfill its purposes. Thus in Federalist 23, Alexander Hamilton wrote that those responsible for the nation's defense must be granted all of the powers necessary to achieve that end. Responsibility is the virtue necessary to govern and to preserve the republic from harm, both external and internal. The dangers of foreign and civil war taught Alexander Hamilton that liberty and power are not always adversaries, that indeed, the "vigor" of government is essential to the security of liberty.

    The US is one major player of many, for the world has always been much bigger than the US,
    America is the world's largest supermarket and we are a conflict of interest,defenders of procrastinators breeding an uneducated population of an alien agenda.
    We are the grand marketing entity of a clandestine investment agenda, and organizations that have been around for about 5000 +/- years and now have re-constituted the greatest conflict with reality, destiny, and the quality of the human race, demographics, the UN's New World Order of Welfare Recipients.

    The control of various shadow organizations, a philosophy sponsored by the bottom line of major banking entities. The "5 Cannon Makers of the World," play both (finance both sides) ends against the middle and thereby "Rule by Chaos".
    We are witness to the increasing population, the residues of prosperity and the toilet quality, the pressures of balkanization, The New World Order.

    The freedoms of our US Constitution were really meant for only for common sense of its citizens, who well fight and die for them and must always have an enforced quality sustainable plan to protect the quality of our destiny.

    To the rest of world,
    our freedoms are merely words, and even here,
    one finds an ever changing furry gyration in the fiefdoms of theocracy and academics.
    It's all the control of philosophy, primed to cultivate subservience via sanctification of tribal traditions and politically procrastination's correctness, where Responsibility and Accountability of population are delegated to a committee of higher authority, where freedoms, logic, common sense and choice, are an abstract of destiny.
