Thanks to Bethel Nathan for passing along the remarks of former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm from a recent immigration-overpopulation conference in Washington, D. C., which I paraphrase as follows:
“Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and fall and ultimately commit suicide, and so, to destroy America, here is how we do it. First, turn America into a bilingual or multilingual and bi-cultural country, thereby creating unbearable tension; second, invent multiculturalism and encourage immigrants to maintain their culture, making it an article of belief that all cultures are equal; third, celebrate diversity rather than unity, and favor tolerance over hegemony of the dominant culture; fourth, make our fastest growing demographic group the least educated, with a 50% high school dropout rate; fifth, get big foundations and big businesses to give these diversity and multicultural efforts lots of money, investing in ethnic identity and financing the grievance industry; sixth, advance the concept of dual citizenship and divided loyalties; seventh, place all these subjects off limits for debate—make it taboo to talk against the cult of diversity; and eighth, make it almost impossible to enforce our immigration laws.”
I’m told that there was a large crowd listening to his remarks. I hope the White House was well represented.
