Melting Pot Has Been Destroyed by Diversity
Simple introduction by Smith Young: This article exposes how liberals oppose tradition American assimilation while pushing HUD’s AFFH mandate for racial balancing. Once again this liberal logic may sound inconsistent to oppose assimilation on one hand while supporting racial balancing on the other, but it’s consistent with this oppressive Obama government that promotes aggressive diverse enclaves who revel and wave the flag of diversity that continues to bring divisiveness and block true assimilation.
The following Tom Tancredo video actually explains it better than the WSJ article below.
Diversity celebrates not common goals, common values, common aspirations and certainly not who you are. Diversity enshrines what you are, embeds you in what “community” you belong to.
One cannot become Chinese or Hispanic or Eskimo; one is either born so, or not. But one—everyone—can choose to become American (“At Home in America” by Aatish Taseer, Review, July 2). I know, because I did, immigrating to this country in 1959. I did not abandon my Hungarian origins or family, but I did embrace the values and mindset of a free and brave people, bound by common ideals and a heritage that was inheritable and sharable by the simple act of pledging allegiance to a flag.
Sadly, the melting pot of my youth is gone, replaced by an insidious celebration of diversity. Diversity celebrates not common goals, common values, common aspirations and certainly not who you are. Diversity enshrines what you are, embeds you in what “community” you belong to.
I am glad that Mr. Taseer has found his home, as I did so many years ago. But I fear that few of his fellow American immigrants and citizens share his longing to be “free of the past, and safe in the future.” Rather, they are busy throwing away our common American identity in the name of diversity. Differences, “the knots of intractable history that [are] integral to identity,” divide and rule more and more every day in America, too.
