... remember the “melting pot” idea [?]
Kingbee is the expert on Tribalism, maybe he can shed some light on the problems it causes.
The "melting pot" idea was killed by leftist like some I will not honor by naming them. Suffice it to say they thought the "melting pot" idea quaint and provincial. Leftist will all tell you that Chechins are required by their nature to set off large firecrackers at sporting events because their lunch money was stolen in the Madras and besides they are poor athletes.
Our resident Politically Correct compatriots uses identity politics and ethnic resentment (race, sexual orientation, religion, regional, etc to promote tribalism. The Black Muslims and al Quida are tribal, as is the Mafia. Even the Irish are not innocent. Today Sean Connery (007) is using his Gold Finger money to poke and prod the flames of Scottish tribalism. And don't tell me that a French man is not tribal.
The la Raze movement is another good example. The name la raza in Spanish means race or people like the German word Volk refers to member of the German tribe or race. Although the word la raza first came to be identified with Hispanics about 100 years ago in 1944 General Generalissimo Francisco Franco commissioned a film named la Raze that was intended to promote the leftist Ideals of Fascism and the Iberian race by promoting Spanish identity politics similar to what the third Reich did between 1933 and 1945.
Among the la Raza racist groups is Movimiento Chicano de Aztlan (Chicano Student Movement of Aztlan) (MEChA), one of the most anti-American groups on the Earth. It has permeated U.S. campuses since the 1960s, and continues its push to carve a racist nation out of the current American West.
MEChA's mission statement....“
In the spirit of a new people that is conscious not only of its proud historical heritage but also of the brutal gringo invasion of our territories, we, the Chicano inhabitants and civilizers of the northern land of Aztlan from whence came our forefathers, reclaiming the land of their birth and consecrating the determination of our people of the sun, declare that the call of our blood is our power, our responsibility, and our inevitable destiny. … Aztlan belongs to those who plant the seeds, water the fields, and gather the crops and not to the foreign Europeans. … We are a bronze people with a bronze culture. Before the world, before all of North America, before all our brothers in the bronze continent, we are a nation, we are a union of free pueblos, we are Aztlan. For La Raza todo. Fuera de La Raza nada.”
.... translation... “For The Race everything. Outside The Race, nothing.”
B Bee, is that enough information to satisfy you?
