I thought it might be time to do a rant about Illegal Aliens….and while i was writing it…I discovered this little ditty from a conference last year in Washington D.C. Sometimes other people hit the mark just as well…..

I HAVE A SECRET PLAN TO DESTROY AMERICA. IF YOU BELIEVE, AS MANY DO, THAT AMERICA IS TOO SMUG, TOO WHITE BREAD, TOO SELF-SATISFIED, TOO RICH, LETS DESTROY AMERICA. IT IS NOT THAT HARD TO DO. HISTORY SHOWS THAT NATIONS ARE MORE FRAGILE THAN THEIR CITIZENS THINK. NO NATION IN HISTORY HAS SURVIVED THE RAVAGES OF TIME. ARNOLD TOYNBEE OBSERVED THAT ALL GREAT CIVILIZATIONS RISE AND THEY ALL FALL, AND THAT “AN AUTOPSY OF HISTORY WOULD SHOW THAT ALL GREAT NATIONS COMMIT SUICIDE.” HERE IS MY PLAN:

I. WE MUST FIRST MAKE AMERICA A BILINGUAL-BICULTURAL COUNTRY. HISTORY SHOWS, IN MY OPINION, THAT NO NATION CAN SURVIVE THE TENSION, CONFLICT, AND ANTAGONISM OF TWO COMPETING LANGUAGES AND CULTURES. IT IS A BLESSING FOR AN INDIVIDUAL TO BE BILINGUAL; IT IS A CURSE FOR A SOCIETY TO BE BILINGUAL. ONE SCHOLAR, SEYMOUR MARTIN LIPSET, PUT IT THIS WAY: THE HISTORIES OF BILINGUAL AND BICULTURAL 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 ITS BASQUES, BRETONS, AND CORSICANS.

II. I WOULD THEN INVENT “MULTICULTURALISM” AND ENCOURAGE IMMIGRANTS TO MAINTAIN THEIR OWN CULTURE. I WOULD MAKE IT AN ARTICLE OF BELIEF THAT ALL CULTURES ARE EQUAL: THAT THERE ARE NO CULTURAL DIFFERENCES THAT ARE IMPORTANT. I WOULD DECLARE IT AN ARTICLE OF FAITH THAT THE BLACK AND HISPANIC DROPOUT RATE IS ONLY DUE TO PREJUDICE AND DISCRIMINATION BY THE MAJORITY. EVERY OTHER EXPLANATION IS OUT-OF-BOUNDS.

III. WE CAN MAKE THE UNITED STATES A “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. I WOULD ENCOURAGE ALL IMMIGRANTS TO KEEP THEIR OWN LANGUAGE AND CULTURE. I WOULD REPLACE THE MELTING POT METAPHOR WITH A SALAD BOWL METAPHOR. IT IS IMPORTANT TO INSURE THAT WE HAVE VARIOUS CULTURAL SUB-GROUPS LIVING IN AMERICA REINFORCING THEIR DIFFERENCES RATHER THAN AMERICANS, EMPHASIZING THEIR SIMILARITIES.

IV. HAVING DONE ALL THIS, 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% DROP OUT RATE FROM SCHOOL.

V. I WOULD THEN GET THE BIG FOUNDATIONS AND BIG 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 ALL THE FAULT OF THE MAJORITY – I WOULD START A GRIEVANCE INDUSTRY BLAMING ALL MINORITY FAILURE ON THE MAJORITY POPULATION.

VI. I WOULD ESTABLISH DUAL CITIZENSHIP AND PROMOTE DIVIDED LOYALTIES. I WOULD “CELEBRATE DIVERSITY.” “DIVERSITY” IS A WONDERFULLY SEDUCTIVE WORD. IT STRESSES DIFFERENCES RATHER THAN COMMONALITIES. 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, AND WE CAN TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS MYOPIA. LOOK AT THE ANCIENT GREEKS. DORF’S WORLD HISTORY TELLS US:
THE GREEKS BELIEVED THAT THEY BELONGED TO THE SAME RACE; THEY POSSESSED A COMMON LANGUAGE AND LITERATURE; AND THEY WORSHIPED THE SAME GODS. ALL GREECE TOOK PART IN THE OLYMPIC GAMES IN HONOR OF ZEUS AND ALL GREEKS VENERATED THE SHRINE OF APOLLO AT DELPHI. A COMMON ENEMY PERSIA THREATENED THEIR LIBERTY. YET, ALL OF THESE BONDS TOGETHER WERE NOT STRONG ENOUGH TO OVERCOME TWO FACTORS . . . (LOCAL PATRIOTISM AND GEOGRAPHICAL CONDITIONS THAT NURTURED POLITICAL DIVISIONS . . .)
IF WE CAN PUT THE EMPHASIS ON THE “PLURIBUS,” INSTEAD OF THE “UNUM,” WE CAN BALKANIZE AMERICA AS SURELY AS KOSOVO.

VII. THEN I WOULD PLACE ALL THESE SUBJECTS OFF LIMITS – MAKE IT TABOO TO TALK ABOUT. I WOULD FIND A WORD SIMILAR TO “HERETIC” IN THE 16TH CENTURY – THAT STOPPED DISCUSSION AND PARALYZED THINKING. WORDS LIKE “RACIST”, “XENOPHOBE” THAT HALTS ARGUMENT AND CONVERSATION.

HAVING MADE AMERICA A BILINGUAL-BICULTURAL COUNTRY, HAVING ESTABLISHED MULTICULTURALISM, 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 SYMPATRIC AND IGNORE THE CUMULATIVE IMPACT.

VIII. LASTLY, I WOULD CENSOR VICTOR HANSON DAVIS’S BOOK MEXIFORNIA – THIS BOOK IS DANGEROUS – IT EXPOSES MY PLAN TO DESTROY AMERICA. SO PLEASE, PLEASE – IF YOU FEEL THAT AMERICA DESERVES TO BE DESTROYED – PLEASE, PLEASE – DON’T BUY THIS BOOK! THIS GUY IS ON TO MY PLAN.

One thought on “How to Destroy America (It already started…)

  1. Can We Save America (Before It’s Too Late?)

    America’s greatest enemy isn’t huddled in a tent chanting verses; it’s you and I. Great civilizations decay from within long before they are subdued from without.

    Doubt that our country is in trouble? Consider this.

    What happens to a nation when the generation that learned nothing becomes the teachers, and the generation that never grew up becomes the parents?

    What happens to a nation when everybody wants to live on Easy Street, but nobody wants to do the work necessary to get there? What happens when
    people no longer believe that great sacrifices are required to accomplish things of value, things that last? What happens when people can’t give up today’s comfort and convenience for a greater reward
    tomorrow, convinced that self-denial is never called for? Perhaps we can only “have it all, right now” when “it” is very hollow, fleeting, and pointless.

    What happens to a nation when the primary ethic becomes “Get as much as you can for as little as you can get away with”? What happens to achievement and accomplishment when people believe that “something”
    can be had for “nothing” and “deserving” replaces “earning”?

    What happens to a nation when immediate happiness is the goal of all activity and instant satisfaction is demanded in order to make an effort? What happens when the ability to delay gratification–the
    defining quality of adulthood–is largely lost, and this loss is not even mourned? What happened to patience, perseverance, resilience, and putting things in perspective, things like distress and discomfort? A
    pain free life is one without challenge; a life without challenge is one without growth; a life without growth is one without freedom, possibilities, or hope.

    What happens to a nation where economy replaces durability, where infrastructure goes without maintenance amid slogans of lowering taxes?
    Costs cannot be escaped, just deferred or shifted. When the concrete and steel comes crashing down around us, we will pay dearly indeed.

    What happens to a nation when its children understand the meaning of “parents” to be “the strangers who pick us up from daycare at 6 PM”? What happens to a nation when dads spend more time on the Xbox–and moms in the chatrooms–than with their own kids? Are today’s youth
    virtual orphans, plugged in, logged on, but never really connected? Have genuine adults capable of parenting become extinct, or are they merely on the endangered species list?

    What happens to a nation when its children and adolescents believe that anything worth doing must be made fun? We have a generation that will only start a task if it is fun, that will only stick with a task as long as it is fun, and for whom the greatest sin is neither pride nor gluttony but boredom.

    What happens to a nation where good parenting has been declared obsolete and where bad behavior is deemed evidence that a child’s “meds aren’t working”?

    What happens to a nation when its greatest industrial products, the products for which the world holds it in high esteem, are high-tech military hardware and Hollywood blockbusters? And nothing else.

    What happens to a nation where obscenity becomes the driving force of an industry? The video revolution of the eighties brought smut into everyone’s neighborhood. The internet revolution of the nineties
    brought it into everyone’s home. We now live in a masturbation nation. With gigabytes of pornography at everyone’s fingertips, it’s a wonder that anyone gets married anymore.

    What happens to a nation when transient relationships and insecure emotional attachments are the only kind ever known? What will become of the kids who hear “mommy and daddy can’t get along” and “you can
    visit daddy every other weekend” and “this is mommy’s new friend…” two or three times before their teens are over? Will they become adults capable of the sound judgment and self control that make for a stable
    marriage? Or will they become adults who say “I’ve never loved anyone like I love you–lately” and “Marry me–for a few years until I find someone else in the thrill parade.”

    What happens to a nation where the rules of grammar are considered oppressive or obsolete, where substandard speech laced with profanity signifies trendiness, and where a high school graduate can’t write an expository essay to save his own skin, but even grammar school kids have the latest hand held electronic gadgets? What happens when thinking and
    writing skills are no longer considered valuable and the effort to acquire them worthwhile? Who seriously believed that using calculators in math class would enable kids to learn more, not less? What future do
    our children have now that leisure has replaced learning and diversion has replaced dedication and devotion?

    What happens to a nation when its largest chain of toy stores stocks one short aisle of books and creative supplies amid a dozen aisles of mostly branded merchandise with movie tie-ins and endless accessories? What future do our children have now that play has been replaced by showing off and getting on the wheel in a cage of endless wanting, getting,
    having, and throwing away? Did childhood get tossed out with the torn wrappings and boxes on Christmas morning?

    What happens to hope in a nation of minimum wage service workers up to their necks in debt from shopping at the nation’s largest retailer
    where shelves are stocked with imported products of dubious quality and safety? What happens when a minimum wage job won’t allow one to keep his head above water, and even two breadwinners have to struggle to earn enough to live on a safe block?

    What happens to a nation that overly sexualizes its young in advertising, apparel, and entertainment while preaching feel-good slogans about saving the children? Perhaps it needs to save them from itself.

    What happens to a nation that asks “What is permitted?” and answers “Anything you can get away with…”? Speed limits? Optional. Taxes? Final exams? Extramarital affairs? “As long as I don’t get
    caught.” What happens to a nation where the public believes that for enough of a fee one can avoid the consequences of any behavior, where hired-gun “experts” and strategies to suppress evidence and influence perception carry more weight than the facts of a case, and where deep pockets, the media’s thirst for sensation, and whether the DA is up for
    reelection trump justice for all?

    What happens to a nation that looks to “experts” and ever widening notions of infirmity and disability to explain the frustration and discouragement its citizens feel? Have we become so gullible that the
    notion of mental illness is more appealing than honestly admitting that purpose and meaning, dignity and fulfillment require more than charge cards, shopping malls, tract housing, Starbuck’s, SUVs, MTV, and Prozac?

    What happens to a nation that prefers excuse-like slogans to straight talk about child rearing and accountability? Raising the kids can’t be
    outsourced any more than it can be automated. It takes more than “quality time”; it takes being there through thick and thin. It doesn’t take “a village”; it takes a family.

    While we may nod and smile smugly on seeing others in the profiles above, can we see ourselves? Or is the uncrossable line reached when it comes to recognizing how our own values and choices undermine the future? We think we get it until it gets to us. Please, someone, throw the first stone.

    Isn’t it strange that many Americans have trouble believing in God, but find it easy to believe in UFOs, get rich quick schemes featured on late night TV spots, and chemical imbalances championed by pharmaceutical company advertising. The mainstream infotainment media won’t ask these questions; it serves largely to convince us that they don’t exist. No candidate dares bring them up. Problems, to be acknowledged, must be simple and blamed on somebody else, preferably in a foreign land and professing a different religion. Solutions, to be considered, must be comfortable, convenient, and, above all, cost-free, or at least the cost must be paid by someone who doesn’t vote or hasn’t been born yet. No one dares criticize the Emperor’s new clothes; after all, it is we who clothed him. By way of the values goes the culture; by way of the culture goes the country. Can the current generation of kids, teens, twenty and thirty somethings with today’s values and attitudes run the country in twenty years? In forty? Would you like to be here when they try?

    Can we save America before it’s too late? Can we make this question as important as the latest celebrity scandal or American Idol contestant? Do we have the courage to ask “What kind of values sustain
    civilization?’ and “What kind of culture is best for ourselves and our children?” Do we have the conviction to answer “Not these values…”
    and “Not this culture…”? If we don’t, who will?
