The Splitting Of America Into Two Countries

    Liberals are hell bent on bringing forth the conditions that could make this happen.

    On Andrea Tantaros radio show last week, conservative columnist and author Pat Buchanan warned of an unintended consequence of the immigration reform bill, a bill which doesn’t place a high priority on assimilation.

    According to Tantaros, her previous guest, former New York Lt. Gov. Betsy McCaughey, said that the immigration legislation funnels money to so-called community organizing groups like La Raza with the idea of teaching immigrants “American history, the Constitution and civic participation.” That leaves open the possibility of activist groups teaching with a partisan slant — and impedes assimilation.

    Buchanan, author of “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?”explained that when different cultures are encouraged to assimilate, nations are susceptible to splitting apart, pointing to recent history as proof.

    “With regard to the history and the teaching of it — this is one of the problems I’ve talked about when you have a single-culture single nation, you have basically a single culture,” Buchanan said. “If you indoctrinate or teach kids different views about what their country and how it began, what you get is a growing disintegration of the country, a fragmentation into different parts. And we see this happening all over the world. In the last few decades where ethnic groups and linguistic minorities and ethnic minorities, cultural minorities, given the pressures of ethno-nationalism, [they] are breaking up countries all over the world. It’s happening all over the Middle East. It happened in the Balkans where Yugoslavia broke up into seven countries. The Soviet Union broke up into 15 countries.”

    And when immigrants don’t assimilate, as could be the case with the inflow Hispanic immigrants from the impending legislation, nations break up — a possibility he laid out with the United States.

    “You put 100 million Hispanic folks in the United States and, say, 70 million on the southwest border. That becomes as much as part of Mexico as it is the United States,” Buchanan continued. “If they have a different language, different culture, a different faith — basically you get two peoples. And two peoples eventually become two countries. This is what I see as the future of America — the Balkanization and the disintegration of a country which become one nation back around 1960 when all the immigrants who came from Eastern and Southern Europe, 1890-1920, had been assimilated and American-ized. We all had gone through the Depression together, heard radio together, went through World War II together and American television — that brought us all together. And now we’re coming apart.”

    I'm not sure how this could geographically work out. With this major tinkering with the citizenry, I guess almost anything is possible.

    It looks like the Senate is going to pass this amnesty fiasco. The only hope is that the House blocks it.

    Personally, I think we need to secure the border and make English the national language before we even start talking about what to do with the illegals that are here.
  4. impedes assimilation.

    Help me out here..what exactly is assimilate in this particular era? What passes for American these days?

    If Lincoln hadn't forced the confederacy back into the union, at the expense of 620,000 American lives, we wouldn't need to split into two countries.
  6. I think Buchanan is absolutely right. You have to just ignore history to think otherwise. All these people who lecture us that America is a country of immigrants do not understand the most important factor, which is that this wave of immigration is vastly different.

    For one thing, it is much larger. For another, it is from a neighboring country, so the old ties do not lessen over time. For another, we didn't have an extensive welfare system for immigrants back then like we do now. It was work or starve. Now it is join a gang, have some anchor babies, go on every form of welfare and march in demonstrations waving mexican flags and complain bitterly about how unfair it all is. Immigrants were expected to assimilate quickly back then. Now , we are told it is our duty to adjust to them.

    You look at any country where there is domestic unrest and it usually involves one of two things. Either religious minorities or ethnic minorities. If you want trouble, just invite in a large group of people from a neighboring country who harbor historical grievances and who will occupy the lowest rungs of scoiety.
  7. Lincoln was an outlaw. Deo Vindice.

    Things are really going to change in the U.S. if this amnesty thing goes through. And it isn't going to be good change.

    Democraps will be happy and corporations who need low wage workers will be happy.

    Anybody looking for a job who doesn't have an advanced degree is probably going to have trouble finding a job and if they do it will be at a low wage that won't budge much for a decade or longer.

    And then taxes are going to have to increase to support the additional welfare families.

    On the positive side, maybe we will get some better authentic burrito restaurants. I'm tired of this texmex crap.
  9. I see the other half of the USA as I work in Los Angeles and park my RV in a trailer park close to the plant. The Mexicans do not want to speak English. And they do not discipline their kidz with the firm hand of one who fears the LORD. They worship the virgin and her image, and that of her child. Their illegitimate children roam the streets, looking to do damage.
