Diversity Is Not Our Strength

How many times have you heard a politician say “diversity is our strength,” or “We are a stronger nation because of diversity?” Are those statements true, or are they just a lot of political banter? There is no doubt that we are a nation of many different backgrounds and cultures, but why does America seem like a different place than it was 50 years ago? If you listen to the Liberals it is because we are a less white nation.

How true is that, we have always been a nation of all colors and different backgrounds?

Theodore Roosevelt’s ideas on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907.

“In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American … There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag … We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language … and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”

Theodore Roosevelt 1907

Therein lies the reason things have changed so much in this country. We still have people coming to America, but how many of them really want to be Americans? The Liberals will call me a racist because I believe America is becoming not America.

The change should be obvious to everyone, we have so-called Americans burning, stomping or peeing on the American flag. We have a woman who works for the Board of Education in Illinois saying, American flag “means nothing more than toilet paper to me.” Our educators are teaching our children that America is a bad place. Much of what I learned in school has been replaced by gender studies and homosexuality acceptance.

We have illegal’s in this country demonstrating for more rights, like free money and free education and a lot more. They have no right to be here in the first place, why haven’t they been rounded up and kicked out? If you are here illegally you have the right to nothing in this country.

America is on the decline because we have a group of people who want to change our culture our history our values and our religious beliefs, and the Democratic Party goes along with that sentiment. Yes, the Democratic Party has changed also in the past 50 years; they have become a dangerous party that must be stopped, that is if we want America back.

This is one man’s opinion.

  1. Chris – I suspect that a lot more folks think as you do than you realize (silent majority?) but are not terribly open about their stance. Mostly due to not wanting to be divisive and called names that they do not deserve. Diversity (all hail diversity!) could be a useful tool if it is managed properly. Unfortunately, it is now just the buzz word for quotas ;-(.
