America Not Its Own Country Without Its Own Language
The German philosopher Emmanuel Kant said, “Language and religion are the two great dividers.”
CNS News reported this week: 44.6 percent of people living in California don’t speak English at home. In Texas, 35.6 percent; in New Mexico, 34.5 percent; in New Jersey, 32 percent and 31 percent in New York.
Today, in New York City, with nearly 40 percent foreign-born immigrants, that city boasts 800 different languages being spoken instead of English. In Denver Public Schools, teachers must teach to 173 different languages via endless immigration from around the world. In California, voting ballots feature 20 different languages to deal with millions of immigrants that cannot speak or write in English. (Source: Denver Post, “173 Languages in Denver Schools”)
Note this reality: a language creates a person’s worldview. Different languages create different worldviews. Multiple worldviews create fracturing and fragmentation in societies, in countries and in all organized systems.
Former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm said, “A nation is much more. It is a state of mind, a shared vision, and a recognition that we are all in this together. A nation needs a common language as it needs a common currency.”
A person who speaks multiple languages enriches him or herself in linguistic skills that must be appreciated. A country that boasts multiple languages cannot survive the linguistic chaos created when people cannot and do not understand one another.
Today, you must press “1” for English, “2” for Spanish, “3” for Chinese and “4” for Arabic in cities dominated by immigrants around the United States. Entire cities in southern California speak only Chinese. Others speak only Spanish. Place like Detroit, Michigan, only Arabic scribbling dominates storefronts and phone answering services come only in Arabic. Additionally, in Moslem dominated areas of Miami, New York City, Detroit and Minneapolis—Arabic dominates the schools and you will not see any “Stars and Stripes” featured in homes, schools or storefronts.

If the United States Congress continues the current immigration onslaught of over 1.2 million immigrants annually to total over 100,000,000 (million) legal immigrants by 2045, English will not be the majority language within 30 years. Spanish speakers expect to become the majority ethnic group by 2042. That figure of 100 million immigrants includes their birth rates of 900,000 annually, chain-migrated relatives at 9 per immigrant and 50,000 diversity visas granted annually, along with 250,000 work visas. That figure does not include the estimated 500,000 illegal alien migrants crossing U.S. borders and visas overstays. (Source: www.cis.org, Dr. Steve Camarota, “Illegal immigration numbers”)
The historian Seymour Martin Lipset said, “The histories of bilingual and bicultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension and tragedy. Canada, Belgium, Malaysia, and Lebanon all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence.” Pakistan and Cyprus follow division. France, Germany, Sweden, Norway, United Kingdom, Holland, Italy and Denmark face fragmentation via immigrant colonies with different languages, worldviews and cultures—that refuse to assimilate into the host countries.
Lamm continued, “You have to share something with your neighbors besides a zip code. We need many things to tie us together, but one indispensible element must be that we all speak one common language. America has been successful because we have become one people. There is a social glue of a common language, a shared history, uniting symbols that tie us together. We live under a common flag, which we honor and salute.”
Since Lamm’s speech 15 years ago, America has become everybody else’s country. It can only fragment further with more and more people with different worldviews and languages.
Today, Colin Kaepernick created a wave of disrespect for his and our country that grows by the day. Black Lives Matter demands that their followers kill cops as well as create a separate African state. The Latina group “La Rasa” features racism as its driving force and stands to push Spanish as the single greatest language in the United States. The Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR expect to push Sharia Law into the mainstream of every Moslem dominated area of America.
Today’s massive and relentless immigration cannot sustain this civilization with a single vision. Millions of immigrants with opposing languages cannot gather on the same page with the same vision for America. Millions of immigrants with incompatible cultures and religions—fracture the foundation of the ‘melting pot’ metaphor into the ‘broken glass’ metaphor.
No nation on Earth has survived the ravages of time. No nation has survived multiple languages and cultures. If America hopes to survive even to 2050 with the current projection of 100 million people from 196 different countries from around the world; English must be expected, demanded and taught across the land as the ONLY language of print, voice and official papers.
We must rescind E.O. 13166 by President Bill Clinton that costs taxpayers billions of dollars to offer every immigrant his or her papers in his or her language. We must curtail all TV and radio programs in foreign languages in favor of English.
“Immigrants devoted to their own cultures and religions are not influenced by the secular politically correct façade that dominates academia, news-media, entertainment, education, religious and political thinking today,” said James Walsh, former Associate General Counsel of the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service. “They claim the right not to assimilate, and the day is coming when the question will be how can the United States regulate the defiantly unassimilated cultures, religions and mores of foreign lands? Such immigrants say their traditions trump the U.S. legal system. Balkanization of the United States has begun.” Speech given by James Walsh in 1991
