Letter to the Editor:

Re: Say goodbye to multiculturalism

“Any man who says that he is an American and something else also, is not an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American Flag, …We have room for but one language and that is the English language…and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the America people.” Teddy Roosevelt

The Mayor and other city officials routinely proclaim the benefits of immigration and cultural diversity, but in reality, the reverse is true.

This great land attracted people seeking a new life and freedoms seldom seen or considered elsewhere. Diverse cultures, by necessity, were forced to work together to survive. Diverse cultures homogenized into the America Culture, but as immigration grew, assimilation slowed. Today People talk about the benefits of diverse cultures, but without assimilation, there are few. Immigrants groups are becoming tribal, dismissing American Culture. Intolerance has replaced assimilation. Immigrants demand cultural recognition but dismiss assimilation in favor of tribalism. Immigrants want the freedom and rights of the American Culture while retaining their original ways.

Leaders of Great Britain, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, France, Australia, and Turkey have found, as has the USA, immigrants, no longer assimilate, they demand the rights of the new nation but retain the culture of their homeland.
