Radical left’s multicultural push destroying U.S.

The nefarious agenda of America’s radical left appears to be designed with the aim of destroying America by promoting the very conditions in this country that have destroyed others.

Our country was founded to the glory of God and his only Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Our Constitution was made possible by revolutionary arms, and was written to establish a republic that would be respected and sustained by the “posterity” of our Founding Fathers.

By “posterity” were meant the family descendants of the people who occupied the several American colonies at the time that our republic was formed in 1787. The meaning of the word “posterity” was later extended to include immigrants and their descendants who came here to be assimilated into the American culture and way of life.

There was no thought of multiculturalism in the process of becoming a naturalized American citizen. A person was expected to reject past allegiances, languages, and flags, and become an assimilated American in every sense of the word, true to our culture and no other.

If America is to survive we must have unity, not diversity.

contains many cultures which yields so much to our country. All cultures have to abide by the laws of this nation and to the state for which they reside in.

The naturalization process does not strip a person of his or her heritage. "Immigrants becoming naturalized U.S. citizens swear to defend the Constitution and laws of the US and, when required by the law, to bear arms on behalf of the US and/or perform noncombatant service." (Wiki)

I'm concerned when any one cultural tries to change laws to benefit themselves.

Mr. Edwards,
As much as I disagree with the leftist agenda in this country, I would have to say that your statement is more radical and extremist than the views of those you accuse of being extremists. Have you forgotten when the Constitution was written? I’m sure that many of the views and opinion used to shape this important document were based on the events of that time period. To uphold your view is to lock yourself up in a closet or a cave and facing reality. Have you heard of Ellis Island or the term “melting pot”?

The foundation of this nation is partly based on the diversity of its citizens; many have ‘assimilated” the American culture but at the same time have had the duty to nurture and keep alive their own traditions. Why should they have to give this up? Just to make people like yourself more secure? Diversity is the way of the world; the most successful companies conduct international business requiring interaction with persons of all races and ethnic backgrounds. It its very smart to be a worldly individual, there is beauty and satisfaction in learning and accepting other cultures.

Give it a try, it won’t hurt you.

It really is amazing that there are those who continue to perpetuate the notion that Southerners are so stilted in intellectual development that they go to all lengths to keep up the stereotype. Their interpretation of the founding of this country on religious dogma only for those who think like they think is small-minded and comical. It is only dangerous when folks like Arby get into public office, and there are dangers everywhere. Keep up the dissent.

"Our country was founded to the glory of God and his only Son, the Lord Jesus Christ....If America is to survive we must have unity, not diversity."

A proponent of ONE religion and ONE race in our country?

It's disturbing to think that these people walk among us.

This writer states that the this country was founded to glorify God and Jesus. Mr./Ms. Edwards fails to realize that the country's founders were deists, not necessarily Christians, and that this country cannot be characterized as Christian. And by proceeding with this foundational error, h/she fails to admit the diversity of religious beliefs and opinions that were in place when this country was founded and that need to be allowed to thrive in the 21st century. The government cannot endorse or promote Christianity; this is anticonstitutional.

they did believe in the separation of religion and government. That was because where a lot came from, the government hid behind religion to do horrible things to their enemy. Northern Ireland is a prime example. Which ever group was in power, Catholic or Protestant, did horrible things to each other, depending who was in control at the time. At one point they would try to make the other take the oath of their religion. If they did not, they poured hot boiling oil on the head of the other. These people would loose an eye, or be horribly disfigures in the process. Children were killed in front of parents.

The founding fathers felt lets cut the BS and work together for the betterment of all, no matter what the religion.

What the original person was talking about is all this multi cultural diversification. I agree with what they said.

People came here and dropped the foreign language and customs. Many children, say Italians, were not allowed to speak their language by their parents. They wanted the kids to fit in. They came here for a new start and not, to make the US conform to them. The founding fathers voted for, and got, one language for all. They were sharp enough to realize this diversifition wasn't going to cut it.

The writer may be off base about his religious statements, but he is DEAD right on the other. Immigrants into this country should assimilate. They need to learn the language and don't expect everyone else to learn theirs. Their culture can be retained just not thrust upon everyone else. I'm sure those immigrants that came though Ellis Island didn't come here expecting to change America's culture to that of their native countries, however, they held on to the things that mattered to them. All we are asking is for them to quit trying to force us to assimilate to them.

At an Obama town hall group recently in Atlanta, citizens expresed concerns about the latino population and their unwillingness to learn english. Obama's reply,"well, you and your children need to learn to speak spanish".

Typical of the Liberal Left!

I don't know why there are people who assume that immigrants expect everyone else have to learn their language and change America's culture to that of their native countries. Maybe the person who wrote that article had a bad experience with an immigrant who was forcing him or other people to assimilate his culture. This is something that I believe is specific to a small quantity of immigrants. The majority of them come to this country with the goal of learning English, finding a job and a better life. I apologize to those who think that we want you to adopt our culture. In fact, in my four years of living in this wonderful country, I never heard anybody say that Americans should learn Spanish. The proof of what I'm saying is that English classes around the country are full of students learning English. In Peachtree City, there is a large number of foreign students learning English; by theway, learning another language is good for your resume and, as some studies had showed, learning another language may help prevent Alzheimer's.

As an immigrant, I just give thanks to this country for all the opportunities and wonderful people that I have been meeting here, and I will try to do the best in order to change the bad image that some people have about immigrants. My grandfather, a United States citizen, was an immigrant in my country of origin. He did good things for my country; all of the people who met him blessed the Americans because of him. In order to follow my grandfather's example, I want to do as many good things for this country as I can in order to show that immigrants with ideas of progress and work are a positive force for this wonderful country. We can bless both this country and also our country of origin.

I don't know. I didn't hear him. I wasn't in Atlanta. However, I do know that Obama argues that children should stay in school, apply themselves to get the best possible education and that it would be better for them to be able to speak more than one language. Without getting into an argument about it, I think he's right, and I suspect he meant no more than that in Atlanta. Personally, I think that if I went anywhere else to live I would have the obligation to learn the local language. I don't understand why some people resist learning the local language. 60 years ago, when I was a kid, there were French and Polish Catholic churches as well as German Lutheran churches that spoke in their native language. While the immigrants struggled with English, their kids just learned it. I suspect that will be true of the Spanish as well. I do think there is a certain charm to local "national" festivals. Over the course of my life, many of them are no longer held, and I think the country is poorer for it.
