"This is our culture — fight for it. This is our flag — pick it up. This is our country — take it back." — Presidential candidate Tom Tancredo
We, as a nation, stand on the precipice of our own cultural disintegration. Our culture stands in the crosshairs of clashing civilizations via importation of millions of immigrants from incompatible cultures.
This week, in Denver, Colorado, immigrants want Halloween celebrations taken out of the school systems. Peter Boyles, talk jock of KHOW 630 AM said, “Next they will demand Thanksgiving be taken away from us.”
Americans like Boyles do the job Congress refuses to do. Multiculturalism threatens to deprive us of 231 years of U.S. culture.
Chicago Sun Times reporter Warner Todd Huston wrote, “At the end of September the school district in Oak Lawn, Illinois announced it was considering eliminating holiday celebrations like Christmas in its schools. Oak Lawn has seen increasing numbers of residents that identify with the Muslim faith who are naturally sending their children to the public schools there and school board members are afraid that Christian holidays are "offensive" to Muslim students.”
What drives the school culture?
Ask yourself: if you resided in Mexico if you would allow a Middle Eastern immigrant to change your wedding customs? If you hailed from Nepal, would you allow immigrants to change your flag festival? Would the Chinese allow an immigrant to change their national holidays to fit their sensitivities? Should the French give up their language to placate immigrants? Would France remain French if all its citizens spoke Arabic? What if Americans immigrating to Saudi Arabia demanded they speak English and celebrate Christmas?
“Since we have become a culture that won’t back a homogeneous observance of being an American, how do we address this issue?” Huston wrote. “How do we serve local communities that are made up mostly of "immigrants" — here unlawfully?”
This travesty illustrates America losing its cultural identity to a massive influx of people from incompatible cultures that will not assimilate into America but inject their own culture against ours. They cannot comprehend that our national culture and history form the bedrock of our existence. Our schools must teach our children about our culture in our country.
Nothing about America remains more sacred than our culture. Without it, we become the same as those our forebears have fought and died to keep us from becoming: we lose freedom and the ability to preserve it.
A country that loses its identity suffers the same kind of disintegration as a child who loses its family. As proven around the world today, multiculturalism fails at every level of human interaction. It proves, ultimately, one of the greatest dangers to humanity.
If America loses Christmas, Halloween, Easter, 4th of July, Labor Day, Memorial Day, President’s day and Thanksgiving to multiculturalism, we lose parts of the foundation of our spiritual grounding in an uncertain world.
Huston wrote, “In fact, we should not be celebrating any other holidays but American holidays. American holidays reflect our national culture. The holidays and traditions of other cultures deserve to remain in their homes, not in the halls of our schools. By NOT indulging their desires to obviate American influences — replacing them with ideas antithetical to our American first principles — we would be doing a far better service to our children than to twist-and-squeeze every district to a different standard, to placate foreign nationals.”
This greatest of nations on the planet became successful BECAUSE of its culture. If we bend it, break it and turn it into multicultural mush soup, we, as a people will not stand together nor will we succeed into the future. Do we want Spanish to conflict with our language in our schools? Can we withstand the trauma of multiple languages? Can we bend over backwards for the Koran that has nothing to do with our history or culture? Do we want our children bent into the violence and intolerance of much of the world from which these immigrants fled? Can we survive as a cohesive civilization if we lose our culture?
Stephen Steinlight answered it best in his, “Amnesty and the Plot Against America”: “Everything we hold most sacred in our national life and civil society, in our public places and private spaces, from our splendidly rambunctious democratic culture to the experience of solitude in our sublime untouched natural environment is at stake in this battle — because the forces that reign against us are powerful, the fate of the nation unimaginable — if they prevail.”
