I Have a Plan To Destroy America


And we are well on our way.


We all know Dick Lamm as the former Governor of Colorado. In that context, his thoughts are particularly poignant.

Last week there was an immigration-overpopulation conference in Washington, DC, filled to capacity by many of American's finest minds and leaders. A brilliant college professor named Victor Hansen Davis 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) ;"Turn America into a bilingual or multi-lingual and bi-cultural 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, 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 went on: (Second:) "Invent 'multi-culturalism' and encourage immigrants to maintain their 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. (Third:) 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 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 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% 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. "E. Pluribus Unum" -- From many, one. In that historical reality, if we put the emphasis on the 'pluribus' instead of the 'unum,' we can balkanize America as surely as Kosovo."

"Next to last, (Seventh:) 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 multi-culturism, having the large foundations fund the doctrine of 'Victimology,' (Eighth:) 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. 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. Every discussion is being suppressed. Over 100 languages are ripping the foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness. 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..

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."

This one is perhaps more dangerous than the others.


I have nothing agaisnt immigration. We are all children of immigrants.

I do have a problem with the multi-culturalism bullshit.

United We Stand, Divided We Fall.


Thank you for this article! It encapsulates everything I am seeing from labels like "African American"..instead of "American" like I reference myself; to being afraid to discuss politically oriented topics in public! These are just two examples of the 8 that are listed, but I can think of more easily!!!!


Our local Lowes here in little ole Mechanicsburg PA now has Spanish and English signs.. Everytime This is America and WE speak English.


Australia is having this problem between them and Muslims.


Wow this is a great article. Thanks for sharing it.


Zap and I seem to think alike. I agree with Zap and with Dick Lamm.


I have a plan too, its called voting for Bush.


LA County (CA) spent $3.3 million to print ballots in 7 different languages & hire multi-lingual poll workers for the March 2002 primary.

It cost $1.8 million annually to prepare written translation for food stamp recipients nationwide.

CA DMV spends $2.2 million/year on language translation.

MA offers dirvers license exams is 25 different languages, KY in 23, NY in 22, CA in 21.


I always felt there was something wrong with seeing signs that reads in english and spanish (in california). I believe this discourages unity. I believe all signs posted commercially should be in English. If you don't know the language learn it.

I know people reading this probably thinks yeah typical white America. But guess what I'm black. I am bilingual. My parents are Nigerians, but I was born and raised here. So I consider myself American. I lived in Nigeria for 8 years so i know first hand what that article above is talking about. I remember when Nigeria used to change presidents like a person changes clothes. Not through an election, but through force. One culture thinks hey we are better so we deserve to be in power...you wake one morning and the current president is no longer in power. This of course leads to hate adn discontent between everybody and progress is slowed. This is where i see this country going if we don't do something.

We can sit and talk about this all day but the question is what are we going to do? We the people are suppose to have the power so lets start using it ....remember the pen is mightier than the sword


I was just listening to NPR the other night and they did a story on how the illegals in Hattiesburg, MS didn't get word of the hurricane because they don't speak english. So, someone printed up fliers in Spanish and took them to the trailer and posted them.

I can't imagine living in France and not learning french, but expecting them to communicate with me in english. It's absurd.

The problem is, as I understand it, businesses get such cheap labor that the politicians are never going to stop it. Hell, Bush is offering amnesty. And he hasn't exactly closed off the borders or supported the Minutemen.


I say the same thing as I do da female, "Speak my language, bitch."


Anyone with any intelligence will ignore this post.


I worked in Warri for most of 1992, so know exactly what you're talking about.


Funny. He has no problem with this. Witness his "amnesty" plans.


Have you read his amnesty plan?


I used to work with an Ogoni gentleman. he and the story of the Ogini were rather interesting. Nigeria did not sound like a fun place to live.

It's ironic that the USA is being taken back by the Indains. Between casinos and illegal immigration, they are well on their way to reclaimation.


Big Business loves immigrants,cheap labor will work for anything under any conditions ,slave labor.Americans better wake up,their trying to undo everything our ancessters in the late 1800s early 1900s fought and died for.The melting pot is full. Take P&G for example ,They were always a non union company that paid their employees well and had great benefits ,stock etc.Now they pay half the money to new employees and their benefits are a joke.but their prices on products continue to rise and they keep buying other companies.I have a few friends that work for european companies here in the states they are paid about half of what their euro counterparts make.


The reasons I posted to ignore StevenF's post were manifold:

First, President Bush has already been elected to his last term, votING for him will not be an effectual plan.

Second, from the third Presidential debate:

What should we do about the 8,000 people cross our borders illegally every day?

BUSH: We're increasing the border security of the US. There ought to be a temporary worker card that allows a willing worker and a willing employer, so long as there's not an American willing to do that job, to join up. I don't believe we ought to have amnesty. I don't think we ought to reward illegal behavior. There are plenty of people standing in line to become a citizen. If they want to become a citizen, they can stand in line, too. And here is where my opponent and I differ. In September 2003, he supported amnesty for illegal aliens.

KERRY: We need a guest-worker program. We need is to crack down on illegal hiring. And thirdly, we need an earned-legalization program for people who have been here for a long time, stayed out of trouble, got a job, paid their taxes, and their kids are American. We got to start moving them toward full citizenship, out of the shadows.

So, my choice (in IL) for the election was Bush who at least says he's anti-legalization and Kerry who says he's pro. Arguably damned if you do, damned if you don't.

Also, abjectly blaming Bush furthers the idea that the minority is misrepresented. I'm not saying that Bush is beyond criticism, but please come up with something more constructively critical than "I have a plan too, its called voting for Bush."
