Recently, I had occasion to peruse the transcript of a speech I’d seen before, and with which a lot of political Internet prowlers are familiar. It was made in 2004 by Richard D. “Dick” Lamm, who was the governor of the state of Colorado from 1975 to 1987. I find this bit of oratory interesting not only because I relocated to that state in 1986, but because Lamm is a Democrat, and was fairly popular even among Republicans and conservatives (there being a marked distinction between the two).
The speech, which has become an almost iconic indictment of multiculturalism, was delivered at an immigration conference in Washington, D.C., and its focus was the downside of immigration in America, particularly the illegal variety. Lamm’s cynical message postulated how America might be systematically destroyed via multiculturalism.
“Here is how they do it: Turn America into a bilingual or multi-lingual and bi-cultural country.”
– Former Colorado governor Richard Lamm
Lamm went on to enumerate the components of a plan that he said would ensure America’s destruction. This included, among many other elements, encouraging immigrants to maintain their culture, ensuring that the fastest-growing demographic groups were unassimilable, undereducated, and antagonistic to our population; enrolling large foundations and businesses in subsidizing these efforts, and establishing the cult of victimology.
Finally, the former governor detailed two of the most important (and perhaps familiar) components: Making discussion of anything contrary to “cult of diversity” sensibilities off limits, and making it impossible to enforce America’s immigration laws.
Gov. Lamm said that such a plan should also “make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal, that there are no cultural differences.” I’ve never been reticent to state that some cultures are manifestly inferior to that in the West, which positively enrages leftists. I am confident in this assertion because it is invariably undesirable elements of their culture that compels so many people to emigrate to the West. In times past, their goal was to assimilate – to divest themselves of those undesirable elements of culture – and we encouraged them to do just that. As we can see, the opposite is occurring now in America, just as Lamm proscribed.
Writing for Breitbart, former Colorado congressman Tom Tancredo cited a recent Forbes article which revealed that the Internal Revenue Service has been encouraging illegal aliens to steal or fabricate Social Security numbers for years. Their rationale, if you can believe it, was to ensure that they would file tax returns. This has resulted in billions of dollars in bogus tax refunds being collected by illegals, courtesy of U.S. taxpayers. Congressional efforts to initiate an investigation into this abuse were blocked by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, which threatened massive
protests against “discriminatory practices” if such an investigation went forward.
Which effectively makes the Congressional Hispanic Caucus an enemy agency with a primary allegiance to something other than that to which its members pledged allegiance when they were sworn in as members of Congress.
On April 17, the New York Post related an account of how those at the highest levels our government conspired to cover up the kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s role in the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. Many have suspected that this was the case for some time, but now proof has been offered. These actions were outright treason – far worse than government officials in Germany warning the press off of reporting on the rape sprees carried out by Muslim men this past New Year’s Eve – but they were consistent with the whorish diplomatic policy American officials have carried on with that Islamic nation for many years.
It is practically common knowledge amongst conservatives that Barack Hussein Obama is a stealth saboteur who has situated members of the Muslim Brotherhood (an Islamist organization that has been plotting Islamic ascendency in America since 1928) in sensitive positions in our government. We’ve also learned over the last few years that Bill and Hillary Clinton have been selling America out piecemeal to the Muslim Brotherhood for decades. Other less prominent politicos, both Democrat and Republican, have engaged in similar practices with unfriendly nations and organizations which have compromised our sovereignty and national security – essentially conducting espionage under the guise of diplomacy.
Writing for the American Enterprise Institute on April 1, Leon Aron stated that an obscure “cultural” difference in perception between Western elites and citizens in their nations is causing the rift between those governing and the governed, driving the latter to embrace nationalistic tendencies and “populist demagogues on both the right and left.” He advised the community of Western leaders to start “adjusting its vocabulary and values to the point where it can talk to its people in ways that the latter will find credible, respectful, and understandable.”
I remain at a loss as to how Western leaders might package their betrayal, treason, and delivery of their constituents into chaos, poverty, and squalor in a way that they will find “credible, respectful, and understandable.” Given the deportment of Western leaders – particularly over the last decade – it would seem that they are being driven by a compulsion to destroy, rather than by a twisted ideology or even simple greed.
All of the foregoing gives rise to the question: How do these American would-be lords and ladies of the global elite expect to carry on, let alone preserve their power, once they have succeeded in destroying America?
