Way back in 2003 Democratic politicians were telling America how they intended to destroy the country. From James Kirkpatrick at unz.com:
Veteran immigration patriots will recall Governor Richard Lamm [D-CO] and his famous 2003 speech “I Have a Plan to Destroy America” .He outlined nightmarish proposals that have now become unchallengeable public policy: making America a bilingual country; encouraging multiculturalism instead of assimilation to the Historic American Nation; promotion of divided loyalties; and, perhaps most presciently, getting “the big foundations and big business to give these efforts a lot of money” in the cause of “Victimology.” From the perspective of even just 15 years ago, America looks conquered and the Regime Media wants to finish the job of dispossession [The Washington Post: Treat America Like a Conquered Nation, by Gregory Hood, American Renaissance, June 11, 2021]. I’d like to update Governor Lamm’s speech with what’s going on today.
My revised plan to destroy America would have three parts:
- First, make sure ordinary Americans can’t own property and thus build wealth by increasing equity in their homes.
- Second, immiserate Americans with low wages and create a second permanent underclass by what President Joe Biden has called “unrelenting” mass immigration.
- Finally, systematically teach those groups who are already given special privileges, protections and set-asides by government that they are actually oppressed and need to demand more.
First, let’s consider the question of property ownership. A popular meme quotes from a video from the World Economic Forum, a “non-governmental organization” that helps organize some of the most powerful people in politics, economics, and culture in pursuit of common goals. A video from this group in 2018 tells us that in the near future “you’ll own nothing and you’ll be happy.”
