- 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 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 '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 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
- 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
- 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.
