SAN ANTONIO, Texas, August 12, 2014 — Then Governor of Colorado Richard Lamm, a Democrat, gave a brief speech on October 3, 2003 on how America could be destroyed predominantly through mass illegal immigration.
Unlike today’s lock-step lemmings that make up the current Democrats in positions of power, Gov. Lamm was a student of history who often held different views than the establishment Democrats His views on illegal immigration are no different.
It is unnerving that President Obama’s handling of the current illegal immigration crisis — which he has chosen to create for the political benefits he believes it will provide for him and the Democrat party — directly tracks Lamm’s plan for how a country could commit suicide.
Lamm started his speech by mocking progressives like Obama, saying, “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 … An autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide.”
Lamm developed this plan based on a historical analysis of the destruction of previous world powers. His speech is more of a history lesson than a hypothetical scenario, making it and the direct comparisons to Obama’s current manufactured immigration crisis that much more disturbing.
“Here is how they destroyed their countries,” Lamm said. “First, turn America into a bilingual or multilingual 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.”
Leftists have a tendency to compare illegal immigration from Mexico to the immigrants that came through Ellis Island. One major difference is that legal immigrants were required to learn English, and become first and foremost Americans. Hyphenated Americans are an invention of the progressive left.
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 … 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.”
Cultures are so very obviously unequal, yet academics and leftist elitists argue otherwise. Mexican culture, by every quantifiable standard, is not as desirable for most people as is that of America. This basic fact is reflected in the immense illegal immigration that flows essentially only one direction: from Mexico into America. Therefore, to help destroy America it would be very beneficial to import as much of the Mexican culture — including its political culture — as possible.
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.”
Lamm has now revealed the single most important factor in the suicide of a powerful nation: creating division and de-emphasizing any similarities as much as possible. Obama is a master at dividing America on any and all possible grounds: race, sex, class, age, etc. That focus on our differences is a crucial aspect in ripping America apart at the seams that Obama very regularly practices.
“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.”
This is exactly what Obama is trying to achieve by importing the hundreds of thousands of illegals currently flooding our border. In conjunction with our current laws, Obama knows that once he grants amnesty to the millions of illegals that are already here, the immediate and secondary family members of the amnestied individuals will be brought to America via our idiotic “chain migration” policy. The policy is based on the fact that it is cruel to break apart families. It would seem that sending the illegals home rather than bringing their many family members to America would be a much better and more humanitarian decision – but that would not further the progressives’ strategy of destroying this country.
Lamm continued, “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.”
Lamm’s further emphasis on resentment, jealousy and division between the groups that the government created is very critical, and a direct reflection of American society under Obama.
The only reason that Republicans even consider amnesty is because Big Business supports it and the establishment Republicans are completely subservient to Big Business.
President Obama has been such a successful advocate of the “Victomology” that Lamm refers to, that he now has entire countries participating. Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador and many more countries are demanding that America take in their poor and unskilled individuals and give them all the benefits of being an American citizen, and Obama gladly obliges.
“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.”
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.”
In conclusion, Lamm said, “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.”
President Obama and the Republicans in Congress have completely ignored America’s immigration laws. Obama is spending taxpayer money on flying illegal immigrants all over the country so it will be impossible to track them and Obama has further made clear that he is soon to grant amnesty to at least five million more illegals while not making any effort to stop the flood of illegals at our southern border. Republicans in Congress repeatedly say that they will not impeach him, essentially giving him the authority to take whatever dictatorial actions he desires.
America is running out of money that we can print or borrow. It is understandable why Democrats are fine with the destruction of America as we now, and forever, have known it – they believe that flooding the border with illegals and giving them amnesty will turn Texas blue (which would mean that Democrats would never again lose a presidential election; having Texas, New York and California requires only a few more electoral votes to win).
Lamm’s emphasis on the divisions in society creating resentment, jealousy and anger is the critical element in his analysis. Therefore, it should be very telling to listen to Obama preach his class warfare and attempt to divide this country any and every way possible.
Gov. Lamm, who is extremely far from some right wing nut job, based this speech on the history of the rise and fall of countries that previously were world powers — Greece, Rome, etc. Obama’s America is following this path without question and there is absolutely no reason to believe that America will survive when every previous world power has not.
