Commentary: Gov. Lamm on How to Destroy America
by Frosty Wooldridge
“The problems in the world today are so enormous they cannot be solved with the level of thinking that created them.” Einstein
Recently, I attended an immigration-overpopulation conference in Washington, DC, filled to capacity by many concerned Americans and leaders. Writers, speakers, CEO’s, representatives from Congress such as Tom Tancredo as well as former governors graced the podium. African-American Terry Anderson spoke like a gathering tornado to a capacity audience. Bonnie Eggle, mother of the national parks ranger Kris Eggle, slain by Mexican drug runners two years ago 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 Homeland Security, according to Time Magazine, September 12, 2004, “Who Left the Door Open?” 4,000 illegal aliens cross nightly in Arizona alone. Three million continue walking, crawling or tunneling across our borders this year. Their accelerating numbers undermine America’s 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 worker’s 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.”
Moments later, former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm, stood up and gave a speech on ‘How to Destroy America’. The audience sat spellbound by the eight methods for destruction of the United States.
Lamm 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 destroyed their countries,” Lamm said. “First, 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 bicultural 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 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. 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.”
Any fool can see that Los Angeles, California or Miami, Florida are no longer American cities. Chicago, Houston, Dallas, Chicago, New York, Atlanta, San Francisco and many other cities are not far behind. Immigrants arrive at over four million per year, so fast and so many, that they are not assimilating into the American Dream. However, they are creating the American Nightmare for Americans. You would be insulted if you spoke English and you’re not welcome in immigrant enclaves of those cities.
“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 American, we are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together.”
Two weeks ago, Muslim students at San Francisco State University charged a student- run Republican voting table. They knocked it over and threatened to blow up the place. One Muslim woman vowed to become a bomber martyr. They did not respect our Republican form of government where each of us is afforded our rights to free speech. Ironically, these are American Muslim student citizens. Apparently, they didn’t realize that this is America. No wonder their counterparts in the Middle East only know how to cock a gun or blow themselves up!
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.”
“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.”
Last year, in Denver, Colorado, 67 percent of the potential graduating class either flunked out or dropped out. This crisis manifests itself again this year in Denver where Tina Griego, an advocate for illegal immigration and employed by the Rocky Mountain News reported November 15, 2004, “North High School teachers estimate only half the student body of 1,400 regularly attend classes.”
That school system suffers hundreds of illegal alien kids who can’t speak English and arrive from functionally illiterate parents. They can’t perform academically because their parents have no interest or background in viable educational processes. Those kids think a remote control takes the place of homework. A similar crisis happens from California to Georgia and from Chicago to Miami.
However, democracy requires four disciplines to flourish while remaining viable. It requires an educated population that possesses a similar moral and ethical foundation while speaking the same language. The United States, via massive immigration, is losing all four aspects. It cannot and will not remain viable much longer with the disruption of its educational systems. Conflicting languages bring a whole new can of worms to the crisis.
“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.”
While a few elites in high places make billions of dollars, they corrupt America’s rule of law and undermine the Middle Class. If you’ll notice—Third World countries DO NOT sustain a Middle Class. They suffer a high class and a low class. America moves in that direction every day of this immigrant invasion.
“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. In that historical reality, if we put the emphasis on the ‘pluribus’ instead of the ‘unum, we can balkanize America as surely as Kosovo.”
“Before we got here, Miami was nothing,” yelled a militant Cuban.
Today in Miami, you will be insulted if you are an American. Point blank reality: Miami is no longer an American city. Neither is Los Angeles. Every city in America is under assault. Corruption reigns supreme along with growing Third World Momentum. Mexico’s Vicente Fox dictates his wishes in our country by spreading the fraudulent Matricular Consular ID card while promoting 46 Mexican consulates in major cities.
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.”
At every juncture today, anti-American groups like La Raza, MALDEF, LULAC, and MECHA, which are pro illegal alien Mexican groups on U.S. soil--scream ‘racism’ if anyone protests illegal migration. You have to wonder what will happen when they gain majority populations? Will they allow us to use the word ‘racism’ as they promote their agenda of ‘Reconquista of Aztlan’ while they break our country into pieces? At 9.2 million Mexicans now transplanted onto U.S. soil, they are well on their way.
“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."
In the last minute of his speech, Governor Lamm wiped his brow. A profound silence swept over the room. Finally, he said, “Lastly, I would censor Victor Davis Hansen’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 apprehension 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 rip the foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness. Barbaric cultures that practice female genital mutilation, terror, horse tripping, cock fighting, dog fighting and worse--grow as we celebrate ‘diversity’. American jobs vanish into the Third World as greedy corporations create a Third World in America—take note of California and other states—to date, 20 million illegal aliens and growing, fast.
If you look around you, our president and this Congress are dismantling America by design. Call it ‘multi-culturalism’ or ‘diversity’ or ‘one world government’ or ‘globalism’. In the end, it will mean the finish of the United States of America as a free, cohesive, sustainable and functioning society.
It reminded me 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.” It dawned on everyone at the conference that our nation and the future of this great republic are deeply in trouble and worsening fast. An invasion of diseases, clashing cultures, languages, balkinization, mounting environmental dilemmas accelerate by the day. If this immigration monster isn’t stopped within two years, it will rage across the United States like a California wildfire and destroy everything in its path, especially the American Dream.
Finally, immigrants drive our population into doubling within the next 60 years to over 600 million people. Remember this--the line never ends as the world grows by 80 million desperate people annually.

If you as an American citizen continue standing by saying nothing, this country is going down for the count. Everything you work and hope for—will not be there for your children. It’s time for your participation. Conviction without action is worthless.
