The social progressives (i.e., communists) who wrote the rulebook on racism in the United States knew they were writing the playbook on national separatism in America. History has substantiated that what ultimately fractured the Soviet Union was national separatism. The Soviets conquered a continent between 1917 and 1945, but they could not hold, by force, the empire they won in battle simply because they never bothered to try to win the hearts and minds of the peoples they captured. When you are an arrogant totalitarian regime holding absolute power, the will of the people is the least of your concerns. Possessing a dictatorship means you never have to say, "Please." The captive nations could not be assimilated into the Soviet Union. They refused to learn Russian and they refused to surrender their customs for the atheistic lifestyle of the communists. Instead, Moscow made the administrators they sent to govern their captive provinces learn the language and customs of those upon which Moscow would impose their will. Force is, after all, a universal language. When you control whether or not a man can provide food and shelter for his family, and you have the arbitrary right to arrest and execute anyone who interferes with you, you possess the absolute power of life and death over your subjects. To the Soviets, that was sufficient.
If you have ever taken the time to study Bible history you know that when the Assyrians or the Babylonians, or any conquering nation, captures a foreign land, they took a majority of the men and boys from the captive lands to their country, replacing them with males from their land. The male immigrants became part of the captured land. They intermingled with the captive populations, marrying them and instilling in them the language and customs of the conquering nation. Ultimately, that nation was wholly assimilated.
The Soviets practiced genocide against the Cossacks and White Russians between 1919 and 1920, slaughtering some 300 thousand men, women and children. During the Soviet famine of 1933, the Bolsheviks seized the entire wheat harvest in the Ukraine, Kazakhstan, the North Caucasus and other parts of Russia to feed the Bolsheviks, letting seven million Soviet peasants starve to death. Two hundred thousand Chechnyans died during that famine. That's one reason that the Chechens, who were freed from the Soviet yoke in 1991, still hate the Soviets. The national loyalties of each captive ethnic group in the Soviet Union remained bonded to their separatist pasts. Internal strife, whether from years of forced collectivism or ethnic separatism remained a bitter fact of life throughout the history of the Soviet Union.
From the Soviet experience, the social progressives in America learned a valuable lesson that would pay huge dividends over the next 50 years in the United States. Diligently, and ever so unobtrusively, the communists within our own government worked to weaken the societal infrastructure of America by using ethnic separatism and cultural diversity to weaken and, ultimately, to destroy the fabric of patriotic unity one thread at a time. Ethnic and cultural separatism would prove to be the Achilles Heel that would divide this nation of immigrants which had grown to become the most powerful nation in the history of the world.
Separatism would be the weapon of choice for the social progressives within our own government, and within our own communities, to destroy the national unity of America through the very calculated, very deliberate fractionalization of the people of the United States into subcultures within the societal structure of the nation.
Their goal has been achieved over decades not by promoting America as a nation of immigrants forged into a single society of freemen who are unified to protect the inherent rights of all men under the banner of the Stars and Stripes, but rather as a multilingual, multicultural society in which diversity and not unity, is encouraged.
To make this work, racism must exist. Neighbors must fear their neighbors. Neighbors must not trust their neighbors. Neighbors must see their neighbors as something other than what they are. When this is achieved, fractionalization has succeeded. People who mistrust each other do not talk to one another, and cannot unify against a threat that will ultimately destroy both of them.
The Journal of Public Economics published the result of a 20 year General Social Survey (1974-1994) which asked respondents if they think "most people can be trusted." Trust, it appears, is based in heterogeneous terms much more than in general terms. Most individuals, the study showed, are less inclined to trust anyone who is different than themselves. Racial and ethnic groups tend not to trust those not part of their group. In heterogeneous communities, individuals who shun racial mixing distrust their peers who believe a blended society functions best and provides the best opportunities for all members of the community. (Which, of course, is why America became the most powerful political and economic power in the world.)
If you think I'm wrong, then heed the words of a man I dislike: former Democratic Colorado governor (and former Ross Perot running mate) Richard D. Lamm. On Jan. 8, 2003 Lamm participated in debate on immigration reform with Mike McGarry of the Colorado Alliance for Immigration Reform and Fox News contributor Michelle Malkin. Lamm noted that history shows that every nation is far more fragile than their citizens think. He also pointed out that no nation in history has survived what he termed "the ravages of time." Arnold Toynbee, Lamm noted, "...observed that all great civilizations rise and they all fall, and that an autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide."
That, by the way, is what America has been doing since 1912. It's just that America is a slow bleeder. Our heartbeat is getting weak, and our lifeblood—our industrial strength—is about depleted. The cause of the death of the United States of America that will be listed on its death certificate will be "apathy."
Lamm correctly observed that to destroy America one need only make the United States a bilingual, bicultural country. No nation has ever survived the conflict and antagonism of competing languages and cultures. That is what the social progressives have been doing since the end of World War II. What made this nation of immigrants great was, by law, those applying for citizenship were forced to take a course in English, and learn our language. Their citizenship tests were taken in English. To pass that test and to become a citizen of the Untied States, the person seeking citizenship had to possess a functional knowledge of the language. The melting pot of America worked for that reason: its people were all thrown in the societal caldron and came out as one nation. We succeeded not through guarded tolerance, but by hegemony.
As Lamm concluded, the social progressives who control our schools, our legislatures and our courts, have changed that. They "...invest[ed] in ethnic identity...and establish[ed] the cult of victimology. I would get all minorities to think their lack of success was the fault of the majority. I would start a grievance history, blaming all minority failure on the majority population. I would establish dual citizenship and promote divided loyalties. I would celebrate diversity...it's a wonderfully deductive word. It stresses differences rather than commonalties. Diverse people worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each other—that is, when they are not killing each other..." I could continue with Lamm's words, but I think everyone who has read this far has the picture—and the message.
Racial diversity in America is an industry. It has been since the 1960s. Today, its an industry that is taught in America's universities and colleges. Columbia University had two of the most dangerous radical communist political activists in Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven on their campus during the radical 1960s and 1970s, teaching their strategy of forcing political change in America through an orchestrated racial crisis. Cloward and Piven insisted chaos would hasten the fall of capitalism. Harvard currently has their own Cloward and Piven-light. He is African-American Studies Professor Henry Louis Gates. The other half of the 21st century Cloward and Piven is black activist Angela Davis, a recipient of the Lenin Peace Prize for activism) a radical communist political activist and former Black Panther, and twice Vice Presidential candidate for the Communist Party USA (1980 and 1984). Davis is a retired professor with the University of California, Santa Cruz and is now an instructor at Southwestern University. On January 21, 2010 Davis spoke as a guest of EBONY (Encouraging Blacks and Others to Never Yield). Davis has written several books on race, class and feminism, as well as a book arguing for the abolition of democracy.
If the American people expect their nation to survive the Obama Administration, they need to toss their racial, ethnic or theological differences back into the melting pot which fused the mettle of millions of people from hundreds of countries into one nation: an unhyphenated country called the United States of America. If Shirley Sherrod (who was fired and then rehired by the Obama Administration over her admission of overcoming anti-white racism after the white family whose home she saved 24 years ago saved her career) can put aside the biases she was raised with, all of us can do the same. If we are going to defeat the communists who now control our government, and restore the Republic that the social progressives have strived to destroy for 98 years, then we all need to cast aside our own prejudices and get to know all of our neighbors.

We might find they are all concerned about what's going to happen to their families and how we, collectively, can restore the patriotic equilibrium of America as we sweep the trash out of government. That will only be achieved if we sweep K Street lobbyists out of Washington and make the wheelbarrows full of money they give to Congressmen and Senators to enact the laws they write to serve their wealthy clients: the princes of industry and the barons of banking and business, illegal. Then we need to impeach any politician or judge who tries to restore the status quo. For part one click below.
