Has America lost its roots? What once was a nation that wanted to be separate and different from other countries has become a nation that wants to be the same as other countries by bringing their own countries over here.
Instead of people saying, “I am an American!”, we are saying, “I am an Israeli-American or an Asian-American or a Mexican-American or a Russian-American” and so on. Have you ever heard of Americans giving up their nationality, moving to another country like Russia and gaining citizenship there and then saying, “I am an American-Russian”? They’d get laughed out of town, if not out of the country itself.
Within the past 20 years, we have seen this socialist warfare rhetoric and even stronger so from Obama, the anthropology expert, of dissecting America into a group of separate cultures who brought their own racial identity, ethnic backgrounds, class status and country’s laws over to the U.S. to inflict on everyone, rather than as a group of unified people, such as our founding fathers, who gave up their own country’s racial identity, social values and country’s laws by coming over to the U.S., creating their own national identity and saying to the other countries, “SCREW YOU ALL!! I AM AN AMERICAN, FIRST AND FOREMOST!” or as Henry Shivley likes to put it, “I AM AN AMERICAN NATIONAL!”.
We should see ourselves not as a citizen subjected to the state or government, but as a free individual with our own identity, not subjected to any form of government, but to our own selves and our own lives! We are the individual ones who will make our own future and be leaders in our own right, without the expressed permission, certification or authorization of the government itself. We are the ones who have sought and hungered for knowledge, experimentation, proper reasoning, logic, morality and ethics in our own right; so that we could find some way of defining who we are as unique individuals and to be able to proudly share our experiences with others. To learn how to become innovative, creative and come up with solutions that will make our lives better and to become something more by growing as individuals and not to be a servant to the government or higher authority who want us to only learn what we need to do the job, like robots at a factory who don’t know why they are doing something, but just know that they are trained or told to do something. And to more importantly, be able to proudly use what we have learned and share what we know in a distinct and unified, free country and to shout out to the world and say, “I AM AN AMERICAN!!!”
In an effort to re-educate America, Charlotte Thomsen Iserbyt published this excerpt written by John Omicinski in her book, The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America to show how we as Americans have perceived ourselves and how a change must be made if we are to become a strong unified America once again:
“John Omicinski, Gannett News Service, wrote “Multiculturalism is a Worthy Goal, but America Still Needs Americans” which appeared in the Sunday, November 20, 1994 issue of Detroit News. Omicinski’s article covered a speech by Librarian of Congress James Billington at the 75th anniversary of Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service. A few interesting excerpts from the article follow:
Will America lead the world into the 21st century? Not the way things are going, says Librarian of Congress James Billington. [Not] in a country afflicted with a lazy, ill-defined multiculturalism filling up with African Americans, Korean Americans, Japanese Americans, he suggests. And his bottom line is simple: America doesn’t work without Americans.
As a custodian of the library and its 105 million items, Billington is caretaker of the world’s largest depository of human culture. He also is one of Washington’s sharpest minds, an expert on Russian history as well as America’s heritage, and even rarer breed – a straight talker.
The arsenal of information we command ought to qualify the United States as an unchallenged cultural superpower, Billington says. But this imposing mother lode of words isn’t of much use if U.S. residents are too indolent, too self-satisfied, too culturally balkanized to use it, he says…
Is America an idea or a nation?
The sharpening split between left and right makes that a cutting edge question in the current cultural wars. And Billington comes down on the side of nationhood largely because America’s good ideas don’t much matter if there’s no nation to push them.
Gathering the world’s civilization to itself, the United States should be primed to set a model for the world. But it isn’t working that way, said Billington. A gaggle of voices – all given equal weight in a society that may have forgotten its traditional values – has turned America into a dizzy spin, “Unfortunately, we seem to have lost our national compass somewhere on the road to the next millennium,” Billington said. “We are getting ever more lazy…. Many of our great institutions of higher learning seem to have become indifferent to – even contemptuous of – their historic function of transmitting a basic understanding of their own culture from one generation to the next. [sic]
“In place of the expanding, inclusive America, which adds without subtracting, the ideological multiculturist would create a balkanized America and a continuous process of subtraction from any sense of common tradition or shared values…. This kind of multiculturalism is the denial rather than the fulfillment of true pluralism, which in the great American tradition assumes a variety of authentic and deep convictions rather than a… uniformity of relativistic indifference.”
Billington sees a single language as the ultimate national glue. Though English is on its way to dominating the world, America’s left-wing elitist intellectuals say it is shouldn’t be America’s lingua franca. “In any country that endures, there must be a unum as well as a pluribus,” said Billington.
That’s not all.
Billington says a national idea also requires a “clearer understanding than our educational system has often done in recent years of our durable constitutional system and public institutions and of our distinctively Judeo-Christian roots…. The bridges to other cultures will not be solid unless they begin with casements that are sunk deep into one’s own native ground.”
Leaders of our governments, schools and universities have much to answer for, perhaps even the death of the American nation. Billington’s speech is another reason to demand better from them, or show them the door.”
(The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America, by Charlotte Thomsen Iserbyt. pgs 353-354)
Almost 20 years later from the date of this excerpt and nothing has changed. The false left/right paradigm continues and we have been unable to push our own ideas because of rules and regulations in our society. If anything, we have become a separate multicultural nation, rather than a unified one. We have broken the bridges that we have built from other cultures, rather than unify them under one sovereign country. With the heat of social warfare, we have become unglued as a nation and have become more broken than ever before. With our socialist education system that we currently have in place, we have regressed from a nation of superior individuals to a nation of social fools.
I have always said, “you can try and conquer a country, but you cannot conquer a nation and its people.”
The Obama Administration (as well as the Bush and Clinton Administrations before him) and the elite are trying to conquer our nation and its people from within by stripping away our Constitution, our nation, our Bill of Rights and what it means to be a free, thinking individual. They are bringing people and businesses in from other countries illegally and buying up our land and our resources, while simultaneously, implementing and enforcing their country’s rules and laws in ours, in order to destroy us from within; a tactic that our foreign, imperialist government has done throughout the countries in the Middle East and they have been able to accomplish because those countries don’t or never have had our 2nd Amendment rights to defend themselves.
Since we proudly have our 2nd Amendment right, are we now going to just let them take away our right to defend ourselves and our proud nation from the very corrupt, tyrannical government that has assisted in overthrowing countries around the world and now ours? Are we going to let them manipulate us through class and social warfare? When the Communist insurgents, the Zionist Jews and all the traitors of our own country come in to our homes and demand to take away our guns, let’s not forget who we are and what we are and what our founding fathers taught us and fought so hard for. Let’s be the proud patriots that we are and claim to be. Let’s clear our heads of any race, gender, ethnicity or class barriers. Let’s turn to the insurgents and foreign armies, point our guns at them and proudly, with all our hearts and conviction, in one unified, national voice and force and say,
“I AM AN AMERICAN!!!” (BANG!)
