Thank You Mother England

British Prime Minister David Cameron delivered a speech on Saturday February 5, 2011.  He may very well be the first Conservative to wake the hell up and start the long road back.  An excerpt from that speech:

"What I am about to say is drawn from the British experience, but I believe there are general lessons for us all.  In the UK, some young men find it hard to identify with the traditional Islam practiced at home by their parents, whose customs can seem staid when transplanted to modern Western countries.  But these young men also find it hard to identify with Britain too, because we have allowed the weakening of our collective identity.  Under the doctrine of state multiculturalism, we have encouraged different cultures to live separate lives, apart from each other and apart from the mainstream.  We’ve failed to provide a vision of society to which they feel they want to belong.  We’ve even tolerated these segregated communities behaving in ways that run completely counter to our values."

England, Sweden, France, Denmark, and other countries are being inundated by people who do not share a common religion, language, identity, values, or culture with the original inhabitants.  If this dangerous trend isn’t reversed, these countries will be destroyed. 

This “weakening of our collective identity” is particularly important here in the United States where we have been indoctrinated to think of our Nation as a “melting pot.”  We have also been indoctrinated to think that diversity is good.  The United States was founded by English-speaking Christian people who shared a common identity.  While there were minor numbers of Germans, French, Spanish, and a large number of both Africans and Native Americans present at our founding, the dominant cultural influence came from the English.  Our laws are rooted in Christianity and English Common Law.  While our language is salted with borrowed words we speak English.  Our National identity is rooted in hard work, personal responsibility, and self reliance.  We are a Christian people. 

We need to return to our National roots.  We need to ensure that people who we allow to come here assimilate and become Americans.  We need to learn a lesson from the Conservative leader of our Mother Country and encourage people who live here to belong or go home.

  1. Amen. The best explanation of "melting pot" I ever heard was that no matter what you put in it, it comes out American. If we quit stirring the pot, the melted parts are just blobs. Immigrants used to come here to become Americans, now they come here to steal and go home.
