Dear M (and others who are critical of my views):
You say "just wow...: Well then you also must disagree with the prominent author at the Hoover Institute , Victor Davis Hanson who wrote the book "Mexifornia" Web Link
You also must disagree with the former Governor of Colorado (a Democrat surprisingly) Richard Lamm...who delivered a stunner of a speech on the perils of multiculturalism. His speech was entitled "How to Destroy America."
I wlll provide a link to it, as well as copy his speech below...for those who care not to click on the link. The sobering reality is that all of Governor Lamm's points are being carried out now.

I have a plan to destroy America

I have a secret plan to destroy America. If you believe, as many do, that America is too smug, too white bread, too self-satisfied, too rich, let's destroy America. It is not that hard to do. History shows that nations are more fragile than their citizens think. No nation in history has survived the ravages of time. Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and they all fall, and that "an autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide." Here is my plan:
We must first make America a bilingual-bicultural country. History shows, in my opinion, that no nation can survive the tension, conflict and antagonism of two competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. One scholar, Seymour Martin 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 its Basques, Bretons and Corsicans."
I would then 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 that are important. I would declare it an article of faith that the black and Hispanic dropout rate is only due to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out-of-bounds.
We can make the United States a "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 multiethnic and multicultural 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." I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with a salad bowl metaphor. It is important to insure that we have various cultural sub-groups living in America reinforcing their differences, rather than Americans emphasizing their similarities.
Having done all this, 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 school.
I would then get the big foundations and big 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 all the fault of the majority. I would start a grievance industry blaming all minority failure on the majority population.
I would establish dual citizenship and promote divided loyalties. I would "celebrate diversity." "Diversity" is a wonderfully seductive word. It stresses differences rather than commonalities. 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, and we can take advantage of this myopia.
Look at the ancient Greeks. Dorf's "World History" tells us: "The Greeks believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a common language and literature; and they worshiped the same gods. All Greece took part in the Olympic Games in honor of Zeus, and all Greeks venerated the shrine of Apollo at Delphi. A common enemy, Persia, threatened their liberty. Yet, all of these bonds together were not strong enough to overcome two factors ... (local patriotism and geographical conditions that nurtured political divisions ...)" If we can put the emphasis on the "pluribus," instead of the "unum," we can balkanize America as surely as Kosovo.
Then I would place all these subjects off-limits make it taboo to talk about. I would find a word similar to "heretic" in the 16th century that stopped discussion and paralyzed thinking. Words like "racist", "xenophobe" halt argument and conversation. 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 "because immigration has been good for America, it must always be good." I would make every individual immigrant sympatric and ignore the cumulative impact.
Lastly, I would censor Victor Davis Hanson's book "Mexifornia" this book is dangerous; it exposes my plan to destroy America. So please, please if you feel that America deserves to be destroyed please, please don't buy this book! This guy is on to my plan.

The issue which you severely criticized me on was regarding whether we in America should allow multi-culturalism (and by extention, other cultures' laws) to exist in America...vs. multi-ethnicities (if the people are here legally) but adhering to one culture...the American culture with it set of laws.
Beyond your saying my point is irrational (is 2020 too far in advance for you...see article below), what is your opinion on the above.
Here is an article related to the above for you to ruminate on.
ISLAM TO RULE AMERICA BY 2020 but Barack Obama will beat that date

This is a very interesting perspective but is it realistic?
Islam's 20-point plan for conquering the United States by 2020
December 1, 2006 budsimmons
A refugee from the Muslim Middle East thinks he has discovered Islam's
20-point plan for conquering the United States by 2020 a plan
revealed in the latest issue of Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin.
Anis Shorrosh, author of "Islam Revealed" and "The True Furqan," is a
Christian Arab-American who emigrated from Arab-controlled Jerusalem
in January 1967.
"The following is my analysis of Islamic invasion of America, the
agenda of Islamists and visible methods to take over America by the
year 2020," Shorrosh says. "Will Americans continue to sleep through
this invasion as they did when we were attacked on 9/11?"
1. Terminate America's freedom of speech by replacing it with
statewide and nationwide hate-crime bills.
2. Wage a war of words using black leaders like Louis Farrakhan, Rev.
Jesse Jackson and other visible religious personalities who promote
Islam as the religion of African-Americans while insisting
Christianity is for whites only. What they fail to tell African-
Americans is that it was Arab Muslims who captured them and sold them
as slaves. In fact, the Arabic word for black and slave is the same,
3. Engage the American public in dialogues, discussions, debates in
colleges, universities, public libraries, radio, TV, churches and
mosques on the virtues of Islam. Proclaim how it is historically
another religion like Judaism and Christianity with the same
4. Nominate Muslim sympathizers to political office to bring about
favorable legislation toward Islam and support potential sympathizers
by block voting.
5. Take control of as much of Hollywood, the press, TV, radio and the
Internet as possible by buying the related corporations or a
6. Yield to the fear of the imminent shut-off of the lifeblood of
America black gold. America's economy depends on oil and 41 percent
of it comes from the Middle East.
7. Yell "foul, out-of-context, personal interpretation, hate crime,
Zionist, un- American, inaccurate interpretation of the Quran" anytime
Islam is criticized or the Quran is analyzed in the public arena.
8. Encourage Muslims to penetrate the White House, specifically with
Islamists who can articulate a marvelous and peaceful picture of
Islam. Acquire government positions and get membership in local school
boards. Train Muslims as medical doctors to dominate the medical
field, research and pharmaceutical companies. (Ever notice how
numerous Muslim doctors in America are, when their countries need them
more desperately than America?) Take over the computer industry.
Establish Middle Eastern restaurants throughout the U.S. to connect
planners of Islamization in a discreet way.
9. Accelerate Islamic demographic growth via:
Massive immigration (100,000 annually since 1961).
Use no birth control whatsoever every baby of Muslim parents is
automatically a Muslim and cannot choose another religion later.
Muslim men must marry American women and Islamize them (10,000
annually). Then divorce them and remarry every five years since one
can't legally marry four at one time. This is a legal solution in
Convert angry, alienated black inmates and turn them into militants
(so far 2,000 released inmates have joined al-Qaida worldwide). Only a
few ''sleeper cells" have been captured in Afghanistan and on American
10. Reading, writing, arithmetic and research through the American
educational system, mosques and student centers (now 1,500) should be
sprinkled with dislike of Jews, evangelical Christians and democracy.
There are currently 300 exclusively Muslim schools in the U.S. which
teach loyalty to the Quran, not the U.S. Constitution. In January of
2002, Saudi Arabia's Embassy in Washington mailed 4,500 packets of the
Quran and videos promoting Islam to America's high schools free of
charge. Saudi Arabia would not allow the U.S. to reciprocate.
11. Provide very sizeable monetary Muslim grants to colleges and
universities in America to establish "Centers for Islamic studies"
with Muslim directors to promote Islam in higher-education
12. Let the entire world know through propaganda, speeches, seminars,
local and national media that terrorists have hijacked Islam, when in
truth, Islam hijacked the terrorists.
13. Appeal to the historically compassionate and sensitive Americans
for sympathy and tolerance towards Muslims in America who are
portrayed as mainly immigrants from oppressed countries.
14. Nullify America's sense of security by manipulating the
intelligence community with misinformation. Periodically terrorize
Americans with reports of impending attacks on bridges, tunnels, water
supplies, airports, apartment buildings and malls.
15. Form riots and demonstrations in the prison system demanding
Islamic Sharia as the way of life, not America's justice system.
16. Open numerous charities throughout the U.S., but use the funds to
support Islamic terrorism with American dollars.
17. Raise interest in Islam on America's campuses by insisting
freshman take at least one course on Islam.
18. Unify the numerous Muslim lobbies in Washington, mosques, Islamic
student centers, educational organizations, magazines and papers by
Internet and an annual convention to coordinate plans, propagate the
faith and engender news in the media.
19. Send intimidating messages and messengers to the outspoken
individuals who are critical of Islam and seek to eliminate them by
hook or crook.
20. Applaud Muslims as loyal citizens of the U.S. by spotlighting
their voting record as the highest percentage of all minority and
ethic groups in America.
Shorrosh is a member of the Oxford Society of Scholars, has traveled
in 76 countries, and is a lecturer and producer of TV documentaries.
"Islam Revealed" is a bestseller now in its eighth printing. His
forthcoming 10th book, from which the 20-point plan is abridged, is
titled "Islam: A Threat or a Challenge."
