I have a plan to destroy America [Richard D. Lamm, former governor of Colorado]
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/1663652/posts ^ | July 11, 2006 | Richard D. Lamm

The speech was given by Governor Lamm at the 2004 Immigration-Overpopulation Conference in Washington, D.C.

He titled it “A Plan to Destroy America.”

AMERICAN SUICIDE Wherever you stand, please take the time to read this; it ought to scare the pants off you!

We know Dick Lamm as the former Governor of Colorado (Democrat). In that context his thoughts are particularly poignant. Recently there was an immigration overpopulation conference in Washington, DC, filled to capacity by many of America’s finest minds and leaders. A brilliant college professor by the name of Victor Davis Hansen talked about his latest book, “Mexifornia,” explaining how immigration - both legal and illegal was destroying the entire state of California He said it would march across the country until it destroyed all vestiges of The American Dream.

Moments later, former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm stood up and gave a stunning speech on how to destroy America. The audience sat spellbound as he described eight methods for the destruction of the United States. He 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 do it,” Lamm said: “First, to destroy America, 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 bi-cultural 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 difficult times with Basques, Bretons, and Corsicans.”

Lamm went on: Second, to destroy America, “Invent ‘multiculturalism’ and encourage immigrants to maintain their culture. Make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal. That there are no cultural differences. Make it an article of faith that the Black and Hispanic dropout rates are due solely to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out of bounds.

Third, “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 multicultural experiment might have been achieved not by tolerance but by hegemony. Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentricity and what it meant to be an American, we are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together.”

Lamm said, “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 subgroups living in America enforcing 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% 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 that 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. “E. Pluribus Unum” — from many, one. In that historical reality, if we put the emphasis on the ‘Pluribus’ instead of the ‘Unum,’ we will balkanize America assuredly as Kosovo.”

“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 bi-lingual/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 symmetric and ignore the cumulative impact of millions of them.”

In the last minute of his speech, Governor Lamm wiped his brow. Profound silence followed. Finally he said, “Lastly, I would censor Victor Hanson Davis’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.”

There was no applause. A chilling fear quietly 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. Discussion is being suppressed. Over 100 languages are ripping the foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness. Even barbaric cultures that practice female genital mutilation are growing as we celebrate ‘diversity.’ American jobs are vanishing into the Third World as corporations create a Third World in America - take note of California and other states - to date, ten million illegal aliens and growing fast. It is reminiscent 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.”

Governor Lamm walked back to his seat. It dawned on everyone at the conference that our nation and the future of this great democracy is deeply in trouble and worsening fast. If we don’t get this immigration monster stopped within three years, it will rage like a California wildfire and destroy everything in its path especially The American Dream. If you care for and love our country as I do, take the time to pass this on just as I did for you

We all know what's happening and why. Yet here we sit banging away on our keyboards complaining about a congress that is all in this together.

SI wonder what it's going to take to ignite this fire.

Deeply in trouble? NO it is not deeply in trouble. It is finished.

The only solution to the scourge is to annihilate the whole thing and see what comes out of the survivors.

The country is so deeply divided and each side will only accept a loss on the part of the other side both must lose.

I'm sad to admit that I've lost all hope in the future of this nation as currently established.I firmly believe...and nobody can convince me otherwise...that secession is the only plausible solution.That way the Maoist states like NY,CA,MA and some others would be free to issue mandatory EBT cards,outlaw "marriage" when three "X" chromosomes and one "Y" chromosome are involved,grant immediate citizenship to all people born south of the Rio Grande,make it a crime punishable by death to tell a worthless parasite to "get a job"...etc.

And states like GA,TN,NE,TX and many others can form a truly more perfect union based on logic,common sense,decency,morality and hard work.

Fellow veterans. Here is the game plan for the destruction of the constitutional republic that we love and have defended. This was stated as a warning in 2004 and we see it being enacted by the present administration today.

It’s going to take the border state governors to fly or bus all illegal immigrants to Washington DC. After all, SCOTUS has said it’s the responsibility of the federal government, so send the illegals to the seat of federal government.

In the 50’s, America’s immigration policy was such that those most beneficial to the nation’s good and interest were placed at the head of the line. All were subjected to a background investigation and adults were expected to have a trade in order to fend for themselves.

All were issued a green card upon arrival (alien registration card) and were told to show the card at a post office once a year. This way, government could know the whereabouts of its aliens.

During the LBJ presidency this process went out of the window and immigration became a free for all.

Dead Ted Kennedy mentioned that his immigration policy was responsible for bringing Obama’s dad over here. Like it was a good thing. For their side it was.

I thin the reason the governors are not acting is because of the SCOTUS ruling. However, there are other options that are available to them, they just need to think out of the box.

If Governors and Sheriffs do not act, they will get no help from D.C. - you can take that to the bank.

Of course they will get no help from DC. That’s Obama’s plan, we have to outsmart him. SCOTUS has died the hands of the states but there are ways around that, the governors need to get together and decide on a plan and then put it in motion before the feds can stop them.

You don’t have to explain the job of Sheriff to me, I have voted and supported Arpaio from the beginning. I also know the handcuffs the court has put on him, but he still manages to do the job by going around the court, not by defying the court.

So he wasn’t really warning the audience, he was outlining his party’s plan. /s

Obama’s father came to the US when Eisenhower was President, so JFK was not responsible. President Obama was already born before Teddy was elected to the Senate.

It’s a long story. Basically, I told them (while teaching Spanish) that the massive influx of immigration would FORCE people to learn Spanish to be able to maintain some form of economic control and at the least remain gainfully employed. That’s just a small part of it. Folks got upset. That was YEARS ago that I was telling them.
