Last week, I attended an immigration-overpopulation conference in Washington, DC, filled to capacity by many of Americas finest minds and leaders. Writers, speakers, CEOs, representatives from Congress such as Tom Tancredo as well as former governors graced the podium. Bonnie Eggle, mother of the national parks ranger Chris Eggle, slain by Mexican drug runners last year on our unguarded southern border--gave a compelling speech that left not one dry eye in the place. Peter Gadiel, father of Jamie Gadiel, spoke powerfully on how the World Trade Center took his son and how nothing has been done since--to stop the flow of illegal immigration into the United States. Even with the façade of Tom Ridges Homeland Security, 800,000 illegal aliens continue walking, crawling or tunneling across the Mexican border annually. Their accelerating numbers are undermining Americas ability to function.

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. Mr. Rob Sanchez of Arizona, showed how H1 B and L 1 visas have ripped one million high tech jobs out of American workers hands. Another speaker told a packed audience
how offshoring and outsourcing, fully supported by the president and congress have cost over three million American jobs in the past six years. His prediction was even more depressing: In excess of three million more jobs will be outsourced within four years. Those American jobs are headed
to Mexico, India, China, Pakistan and Brazil.

Later, 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. This writer sat in the audience spellbound by the eight methods for destruction of the United States.

He said, If you believe that America is too smug, too self-satisfied, too rich, then lets 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. 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 historica 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, Lebanonall 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, 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 America, 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 Americas 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 otherthat 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 factorslocal 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.

Next to last, I would place all subjects off limitsmake it taboo
to talk about anything against the cult of diversity. I would find a word similar to heretic in the 16th centurythat 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, 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. The profound silence allowed me to hear my heart beating. Finally, he said, Lastly, I would censor Victor Hanson Daviss book MEXIFORNIA. His book is dangerous. It exposes the plan to destroy America. If you feel America deserves to be destroyed, dont 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 greedy corporations create a Third World in Americatake note of California and other statesto date, 10 million illegal aliens and growing, fast.

It reminded me of George Orwells 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. I sat there as one of the most patriotic Americans I know, 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 dont 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.

Please be advised that this column is in fact a discussion forum for Political Issues of varying nature. I agree that this is indeed a Shotgunning website and forum (and a damn fine one), however it important that we discuss such issues as the one that has been posted.

We must all first step back and decide whether or not we are going to agree with every post on this forum, no matter what its subject matter. I would hope we all have the intellect and independence to make up our own minds regarding these types of issues. We must also have the maturity and tolerance to hear out different ideologies and accept the fact that perhaps each of us may not always be correct all the time, and even if we cannot bear the thought of agreeing with an idea that boils our blood, we must at the very least agree to disagree.

I tolerate many ideas, whether I agree with them or not, and this one is no different. However what I will not tolerate in my forum is for individuals to lower themselves to name-calling and other grade-school practices, so let it be heard that that ends right here, right now.

If any of our members ask me to censor such discussions, I am sorry but you will indeed be dissappointed. If you force me to begin deleting posts (a thought I dread), then you must ask yourself where the line is drawn. Once I begin, where do I stop? I could possibly delete every post that pays even the most remote disrespect for my hero Mr. J.M. Browning or disdain for the firearms his company produces, but my conscience tells me I cannot do that. And I will not do that.

For the record, the post by BJolly was indeed a "cut and paste" article, and for that matter about 95% of mine in this forum are, because what we try to do here is alert our fellow shotgunners to issues that may concern them, and that is done quite effectively by posting articles ensuring proper credit is given to the author as it was in this case. That is what I believe Mr Jolly's intent was in this case. Secondly, it was not a racist or hate-mongering post. It was actually well-written and thought-provoking. Thirdly, I believe I understand what the author was illustrating, and from my perspective it looks quite accurate.

I will ask a favor of all of you who frequent my forum. Let us not only disagree, let is celebrate our differences of opinion. Let us revel in the comfort of knowing that we still have the freedom to print text that is controversial. Let us agree to disagree, and most importantly: Let us do so intelligently and respectfully.

I agree completely Johnnyboy! When many of our ancestors came to this country they brought with them a hope for a better life - NOT a plan to destroy it. That is the difference.
