In October 2003, I attended an immigration conference where former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm presented a stunned audience with "How to Destroy America—Eight Ways."
For the record, I based my book on his speech: Immigration's Unarmed Invasion—Deadly Consequences.
At the time and even today, 13 years later, the majority of Americans don't possess a clue as to the invasion of their country and how fast it's being swept into the dustbin of history. What boggles my mind: the sheer speed of our fragmentation as a society! We added over 35 million immigrants since that speech.
We flooded ourselves with Muslims bent on destroying us. We face an entire takeover of Latino-Hispanic-Mexicans becoming the new majority within 26 years by 2042. We face terror attacks within our own country by "new" citizens from the Middle East. We suffer "Black Lives Matter" stomping on Old Glory while they burn and loot Ferguson, Missouri. We saw the Boston Marathon and San Bernardino terror attacks along with a dozen others, but we keep importing Muslims.
We stand at the threshold of self-destruction, but Congress continues the 1.2 million legal immigration juggernaut without pause.
During the conference, speaker after speaker astounded the audience with facts on how fast the present administration and Congress continue dismantling the American Dream for average citizens. Moments later, former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm, stood up and gave a speech on 'How to Destroy America'. The audience sat spellbound by the eight methods for destruction of the United States.
Lamm 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 destroyed their countries," Lamm said. "First, 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 bicultural 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 continued on how to destroy America, "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! 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. 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 added, "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 percent 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. In that historical reality, if we put the emphasis on the 'pluribus' instead of the 'unum, we can balkanize America as surely as Kosovo."
Lamm continued, "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 multiculturalism, having the large foundations fund the doctrine of 'Victimology'," Lamm said. "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. A profound silence swept over the room. Finally, he said, "Lastly, I would censor Victor Davis Hansen'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."
No applause. A chilling apprehension 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 rip the foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness. Barbaric cultures that practice female genital mutilation, terror, horse tripping, cock fighting, dog fighting and worse--grow as we celebrate 'diversity'. American jobs vanish into the Third World as greedy corporations create a Third World in America—take note of California and other states—to date, 20 million illegal aliens and growing, fast.
If you look around you, our president and this Congress are dismantling America by design. Call it 'multi-culturalism' or 'diversity' or 'one world government' or 'globalism'. In the end, it will mean the finish of the United States of America as a free, cohesive, sustainable and functioning society. It reminded me 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." It dawned on everyone at the conference that our nation and the future of this great republic are deeply in trouble and worsening fast. An invasion of diseases, clashing cultures, languages, balkanization, mounting environmental dilemmas accelerate by the day. If this immigration monster isn't stopped within two years, it will rage across the United States like a California wildfire and destroy everything in its path, especially the American Dream.
If you as an American citizen continue standing by saying nothing, this country is going down for the count. Everything you work and hope for—will not be there for your children. It's time for your participation. Conviction without action is worthless.
