Why Muslims And Mexicans Won't Assimilate And Why Their Immigration Is Different From Past Generations Of Immigrants

Unlike America's immigrants in the past, far too many of todays' Mexican and Muslim immigrants are not assimilating into American culture, a fact that immigration proponents like Lindsey Graham, who recently read a 96-year-old quote into the Senate record to demonstrate that fear of foreigners is not new for Americans, fail to comprehend.

As Selwyn Duke points out in his piece at Renew America, today's immigrants and native-born Americans are far different than were in the past; among other reasons, the literal invasion by Mexicans and foreign-born Muslims is distinguished from previous immigrant waves by a feeling of entitlement that was not present in the immigrants referred to in Graham's quote that referred to the immigrants of 1911. Far too many Mexicans "exhibit ethnic patriotism and believe California and the Southwest rightly belongs to them" and they have no compunction about imposing their culture and language on the country. Foreign-born Muslims, and even some U.S.- born, "manifest religious chauvinism, and far too many pious Moslems believe they have been enjoined to impose their faith on others by any means necessary."

Yet Senators Edward Kennedy, Sen. Jon Kyl, Lindsey Graham, Mel Martinez, Arlen Specter, John McCain, and their ilk remain oblivious to the differences and the fact that because of it, Mexican and Muslim immigration is bringing about an erasing of the culture that made America the great nation that she is today:

... With Moslems and Mexicans on the march from Maine to Monterey, this should be obvious. Yet, the gravity of this situation still eludes many, sedated as they are with bread and circuses.

... Assimilation is not a process magically initiated upon setting foot on American terra firma. Rather, it only occurs when one or both of two conditions are met: The foreign elements must have a desire to assimilate or the host nation must place pressure on them to do so. Unfortunately, neither is the case today because both immigrants and native-born Americans are far different than they once were.

... The M&M invasion (Moslems and Mexicans) is distinguished from previous immigrant waves by a feeling of entitlement. A Zogby poll found that 58 percent of Mexicans believe California and the Southwest rightly belong to them. Although this belief is bred by a tendentious view of history, it doesn't change the end result. It has spawned groups such as Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan (MEChA), which advocates conquering the Southwest in the name of Mexico. More significantly, it causes many average Mexicans to have no compunction about imposing their culture and language on the country that has so generously given them succor.

... Where Mexicans exhibit ethnic patriotism, Moslems manifest religious chauvinism. Far too many pious Moslems believe they have been enjoined to impose their faith on others by any means necessary; this is why they will unabashedly demand concessions, such as their own dormitories at colleges and an Arabic public school in New York City. It's also why they have fought for the right to use sharia law to settle civil disputes in Canada.

... This lies in stark contrast to the behavior of yesterday's immigrants. Like anyone else, they certainly felt comfortable in the bosom of their own subculture; yet, they knew they were in another's land and never viewed accommodation by their host nation as a birthright, and any ethnic patriotism harbored was often trumped by the dream of becoming American. Unfortunately, today's immigrants' dream is often our nightmare, one from which we could arise if only, if only, ...

... freedom of association has been trumped by lawless judges, citizens have lost control over their businesses, rental properties and, in many cases, organizations. Privately owned and financed entities can no longer determine who receives paychecks, who will be served and who will be rented to, thus removing the social pressure to conform that the common man would naturally apply via the exercise of his values in his castle. Likewise, local school boards have been robbed of the right to set dress codes and behavior standards reflecting the surrounding community. What this means is now you can't refuse to hire a cross-dressing Colombian from Cartagena on the basis that he is a cross-dressing Colombian from Cartagena. Ah, it sounds almost Jeffersonian . . . almost. We've now traded liberty for perversity.

... America is being erased. The stabilizing majority that forged her unique culture is being eroded through the importation of culturally imperialistic forces by treasonous politicians.
