Destroying American culture

Vail Colorado-Todays information & news from Vail Daily – Commentary

Less than 30 years ago, most everything in America enjoyed the moniker “All American.” Sports heroes became “All Americans.” When you bought a product, it read, “Made in America.” Everyone spoke English and raised their hands to their hearts while saying, “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God with liberty and justice for all.”Today, millions in this country call themselves Hmong-Americans, Muslim-Americans, Korean-Americans and African-Americans. In other words, they do not hold total allegiance as an American. One of our presidential candidates is a Kenyan-American. He grew up in Indonesia until the age of 10. Barack Obama cannot be considered an All-American man by his own words.

Those people with hyphenated nationalities manifest “multiculturalism.”

By its very name, it destroys one culture by breaking it into many. It’s like throwing a baseball through a house window — fracturing it into countless pieces. The window can no longer protect that house from rain, winds or snow. Additionally, with numerous cultures come multiple languages. Linguistic chaos equals unending tension.

Former Colorado Gov. Richard Lamm said: “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.”
