What happened to the melting pot?

Does anyone but me remember the “melting pot” theory? Basically, it stated that as immigrants came to America they assimilated into our culture. This was taught in public schools (at least in Monroe and Haynesville) into the early 80’s. Then it disappeared.

What replaced it? Multiculturalism and the salad bowl.

We all know that the United States of American was founded primarily by white Europeans combined with an influx of many nationalities. Most conservatives that I know certainly have no problem with immigrants from any country – as long as they come to America legally to join our value system.

Multiculturalists argue that the customs and cultures of varied ethnic groups should be preserved. There is a problem with that.

As Geert Wilders argues, we should learn from the history and fall of Rome. Multiculturalism will slowly and insidiously decimate a society.

In other words: multiculturalism holds that the state should not promote a leitkultur, which immigrants have to accept if they want to live in our midst. — Geert Wilders: The Winston Churchill of Our Time

Here is the reality. Personally, I have no problems with anyone coming to America as an immigrant as long as they go through the legal route. I also have no problem if immigrants want to maintain cultural ties to their original homeland. After all, I preach regularly about the “values and customs of the south.” I do have a problem when the cultural ties become the public-facing philosophy of an indivual.

Don’t like our typical American values? Fine. Leave.

You came here looking for something better and for a chance at success for you and your family with our typical values of hard work and equality? You are welcome with open arms.

Wilders goes on to discuss the issues with multiculturalism and Islam. What he says should be heeded.

Indeed, the premise of the multiculturalist ideology is wrong. Cultures are not equal. They are different, because their roots are different. That is why the multiculturalists try to destroy our roots. — Geert Wilders

The influx of Islamic culture to America is not primarily because they believe Western society is superior. The words of leaders can speak for themselves. The influx is to slowly destroy Western culture and replace it – just like Rome.

One day, millions of men will leave the Southern Hemisphere to go to the Northern Hemisphere. And they will not go there as friends. Because they will go there to conquer it. And they will conquer it with their sons. The wombs of our women will give us victory. — (former) Algerian President Houari Boumédienne

There are tens of millions of Muslims in the European continent today and their number is on the increase. This is the clear indication that the European continent will be converted into Islam. Europe will one day soon be a Muslim continent. — Colonel Gaddafi

Negotiation is secondary, the main issue is that there is no way but for (the United States) to change. — Gholam Hossein Elham – Minister of Justice of Iran

Do we want a society where the values of immigrants are accepted as equal to our own? There is reason that the American Exceptionalism theory has started to come back into vogue.

Where do we go from here? Good question.

First Class for Hank’s Race Card

I love Facebook. You get to see such a “diverse” group of people and their true thoughts. Especially when it comes to politics and especially immigration issues.

Calvin Lester linked over to a Washington Post article about the recent David Vitter ad. No, Vitter wasn’t looking for prostitutes this time. Of course, Calvin almost always falls on the race-baiting side, but here is where it got interesting.

Mark Flowers, from east Texas, commented on Calvins post. This prompted a comment from Hank Miller of Shreveport. Let’s just say the entire thread was a banter back and forth between them.

I wasn’t going to even post – until Hank had to play the race card and the “we stole the country” card, and the first class ticket out of here. How hypocritical. So I replied, because, well,  I can’t stand it.

My reply to the thread:

Personally I think the ad is hilarious from a production standpoint. Does the voting record of Charlie Melancon equal the accusations? If you stretch just a bit, yeah.

However, there are somewhere between 500,000-1,000,000 reasons per year why the ad is spot on concerning the root issue.

There is nothing wrong with immigrants. All of us are immigrants anyway, including all the chip-on-the-should blacks who regularly play that slave race card, and whose ancestors sold them to the Europeans during the slave trading days.

The problem is the illegal immigrants who are an insult to all of the law-abiding immigrants who enter our country every year.

California is full of racists

In case you didn’t know (because you were hiding in a cave), there has been an ongoing “hypocritical righteous war” waged against Arizona’s SB1040. But what about those that are screaming the most?

Let’s look at San Francisco first. If you didn’t know, SF is a “sanctuary city”. No, that is not a label from right wing nuts. They actually have declared it for themselves. San Francisco has actually passed ordinances causing their law enforcement officers to violate federal law and the laws of the state of California.

So what makes them a hypocrite? San Francisco’s own ordinances, even as a sanctuary city, allows reporting to the INS after arrest anyway.

Nothing in this Chapter shall prohibit, or be construed as prohibiting, a law enforcement officer…(b) cooperating with an INS request for information regarding an individual who has been convicted of a felony committed in violation of the laws of the State of California…

So what about California itself? Is there any hypocrisy there after Arnold’s jokes about Arizona’s law? Yep. 834b of the California Penal Code sure does look like it would allow racial profiling.

You mean the boycotts from these cities and states might be from hypocritical morons who can’t read?

Nope. I’m not saying they “might” be.

I’m saying they are hypocritical morons who can’t read.
