The United States of America has two devastatingly serious problems that threaten the security and the sovereignty of this nation. The most serious threat to our American way of life are the 20 million illegal aliens who infiltrated the United States since President Ronald Reagan's amnesty program was initiated in 1986. The second threat posed to the United States comes from legal immigrants—many of whom are now citizens of this the United States—who, for whatever reason, have refused to be assimilated into this nation by remaining culturally and linguistically separate from their fellow citizens.
It is more likely that separatism is more the fault of social progressives in the United States than the immigrants themselves since they know, to be accepted by the Gringo, they must speak the language and adopt the customs of their new land. ("Social progressive" is the politically-correct phrase that is now used to describe freedom-hating natural-born US citizen communist ideologues within our own government, the bureaucracy and sadly, the tenured instructors in our colleges and universities—none of whom, it appears, can be fired; or politicians who can't be "term limited" because their jobs are protected by social progressive judges who are financially-backed by the wealth of the free enterprise social progressive barons of banking and industry whose goal it is to create a communist world government controlled by them.)
The fact that social progressive judges are even allowed inside a courtroom let alone placed on the bench with lifetime appointments is our fault. The Constitution provides judges with lifetime jobs to prevent them from being obligated to those who appoint them. When we allow politicians who are obligated to the merchant princes appoint social progressive judges who will unconstitutionally legislate from the bench, it's our fault. Are we too lazy to fix the problems our apathy created? Because of that apathy, one morning we will wake up and discover our nation is gone.
More nations are lost from apathy than from superior forces on the battlefield. Germany fell to Nazism because of apathy. Russia fell to communism because of apathy. And the American people don't seem to realize that as a "replacement society" our jobs are worth more to Corporate America in the nations where potential workers have nothing and need everything.
The social progressive (the communists within our political system) have taken a lesson from the history of the Soviet Union on how to destroy America without war. The Soviet Union, like every totalitarian empire in history grew not from personal prosperity but from brute force. And, like all of the temporary empires of the world's past, the totalitarians of the Soviet Union could not erase the philosophical borders of national separatism and assimilate the captive nations into their empire.
The most serious problems facing the atheists in the Soviet Union were national separatism, cultural distinction and ethnic diversity. They were the three political wedges that kept the conquered peoples from being assimilated into the Soviet Union. The contempt felt by the captured nations for their military masters was so intense, the captive peoples refused to learn Russian—a barbaric tongue they felt was beneath them. While the captive lands were forcibly integrated into the Soviet system, master and human chattel communicated only because the Soviet commissars learned the languages of the captive serfs they ruled. The language barrier was like a barbed-wire fence that separated the conquerors from the conquered. Towards the end of the Cold War, Mikhail Gorbachev acknowledged that the Soviets could not achieve national unity because the nations which were dragged into the Soviet Union remained cultural and ethnically distinct. They could not be forced to learn the national language of Russia, nor would they adopt the customs of the Russian people. As a result, for the entire existence of the Soviet Union, the satellite nations remained captives of a totalitarian master.
The far left social progressives who control our schools and the federal bureaucracy that was created in the 1930s by Franklin D. Roosevelt and the socialist New Deal Congress are students of history. They clearly understand what caused the collapse of the Soviet system. The wedges that divided the people were linguistic barriers, cultural diversity, and radical ethnicentricity. The social progressives know that to create a socialist world, they must weaken the fabric of unity of the American people before sovereignty can be sufficiently weakened and the fiber of liberty shredded. When that happens, our nation can be recast it into a multinational state that more closely resembles the European Union or the reemerging Soviet Union since patriotism dies as faith dies.
What we are experiencing is a very calculated attempt to reduce the United States—a nation of immigrants unified by a common language—into a multilingual nation that mistrusts its neighbors. The rationale is as simple as the plan. The Soviets learned too late that you can't create friends and neighbors out of ethnically and culturally diverse peoples who cannot communicate with one another. The social progressives have come to understand that the best way to create enemies out of neighbors is to build mistrust by mandating cultural and ethnic diversity—and forcing the school systems to teach each ethnic group in their "native" language.
We have allowed the socialist bureaucracy within the United States (which is working hard to create a socialist world government) to erase the national boundaries that secure the nation-states, and create a tariff-free global trade zone controlled not by the collective people of those nations, but by the merchant princes, money barons and the deposed royals of Europe who have always viewed those collective people as their personal chattel. We are rapidly losing our status as citizens as we become a commodity—the human capital of the rich. Welcome to the 21st century version of the 11th century. Welcome to the new world of lords and serfs. Guess which we are?
In December, 1997, Hispanic parents in San Jose, California launched an angry fight against the local school boards that denied their children the right to be taught in English-spoken classes. The argument of the parents was that their children could never be fully assimilated into the US economy if they did not master English as their primary language. Their argument fell on deaf ears. Businessman Ron Unz and public school teacher Gloria Matta Tachman launched the "English for the Children" ballot initiative—Proposition 227—and got 760 thousand signatures to put the measure, which would ban bilingual education, on the June 2, 1998 ballot.
In May, 1998—a month before the measure came up for a vote, the World Socialist Website assailed the initiative as an attack on the democratic rights of Hispanics—most of whom were in favor of ending the bilingual education programs that forced them to remain second-class citizens in their adopted land. The WSWS argued that forcing Hispanic children to learn English would not only deprive them of their Constitutional rights, but would block the struggle for equality being fought by the Spanish-speaking working class. The WSWS further argued that forcing Hispanic students into English-taught classes would make it more difficult for those students to learn the math and sciences they needed to graduate. The statistics show that only 7% of the Hispanic students who study in bilingual schools become fluent in English; and almost none of them advance out of poverty.
When Proposition 227 was being debated prior to the vote on June 2, 1998, the co-presidency of Bill and Hillary Clinton joined the fray on the side of bilingual education, using their political muscle and social progressive talking heads to help keep the status quo. Working in tandem with the Clinton White House to keep Hispanic-American second-class citizens, was A. Jerrold Perenchio, a Republican billionaire who owns Univision, the Spanish-language television network. Perenchio, a Clinton-supporter on the issue of keeping Hispanics from learning English in 1998, is a John McCain supporter now. To date he has contributed almost $72,000 to McCain. Hispanics should be wary about McCain. As we learned from his participation in the Keating Five, and his roll-over to the Baby Bells when he had oversight control of the FCC, he sells out rather cheaply.
In 1998, Perenchio provided close to $4 million in free advertising to the "Vote No on Proposition 227" faction. While Perenchio chose to try to deny his Hispanic audience the right to become fluent English-speaking citizens which would allow them to become fully assimilated into the American society—the inherent right of any US citizen—it served his business interests best to shackle his Hispanic audience to the Spanish language in an English-speaking world. How else could the Gringos sell their wares to the human capital whose views he controlled through Univision?
When the measure came up for a vote, Proposition 227 won 61% to 39%. (This should say something to the anti-Hispanic Americans who insist that the American people want all Hispanics out of the country. The United States is a land of immigrants. Most of us can count back three, four, five or six generations when our ancestors arrived on Freedom Shore from some other country where they were persecuted, lived in fear, or escaped an economic or political holocaust.
Some of us can boast that our forebears arrived on the Mayflower or some merchant ship full to the hull with pioneer stock—or bond servants or, yes, even slaves. All of these immigrants—whether English, Dutch, Norwegian, Swede, German, Dane, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, or Mexican, had one thing in common with all other immigrants. They were all obligated to learn the language, the history and the customs of this great land. Why? So they would better understand, and appreciate, the gift of liberty they would receive when they recited—in English—their oath of allegiance to the United States of America.
In order to use over 5 million legal resident aliens as their own personal human capital when they needed votes to win reelection in 1996, Bill and Hillary Clinton robbed part of the American heritage from those immigrants in 1996 when Clinton waived the need for immigrants to speak the language that would allow them to be assimilated into this great nation. In violation of a federal law Clinton had no cpmstitutional authority to waive, he allowed them to take their oath of allegiance in their native languages. That, in and of itself, was an impeachable offense.
As they entered the portals of their new nation as citizens, they entered as strangers in a hostile land. And, for the most part, because they can't say, "Good morning," to their neighbors, they remain strangers to the world outside their door. Their neighbors regard them as intruders in their land. This is how hate is born at home. Sadly, the social progressives who are trying to reshape America into a new global Soviet Union, they need to drive the wedge deep into the heart of America to destroy the patriotic pride that made the United States the greatest nation in the history of the world.
