In America We Are Americans
As I watched a television commercial that featured so-called Hollywood personalities, and those from today’s pop culture, postulating that we would all experience serendipity by embracing our differences, I was reminded of an old adage. Of course, the critical differences they were advocating we embrace were those of color and homosexuality — but I’m getting slightly ahead of myself.
The adage is: “Retribution is not subject to the calendar, judgment can take years.” Here is my point.
America was not founded to celebrate being different; it was founded that everyone legally coming to these shores could celebrate freedom and opportunity as Americans. Without belaboring the point, I remind you of the countless numbers of foreigners who legally immigrated here to become Americans. They did not come here to camp and usurp; they came to participate, contribute, and inspire. They came with the mindset that they were going to become Americans.
The idea of “celebrating differences” is a specious lie that the quixotic foolishly buy into. And because the consequences for same are not immediately witnessed, the perception that there are no consequences becomes a fallacious reality.[adsanity id=8405 align=alignleft /]Our Founding Fathers created The United States of America not a Bedouin culture of separate cultures, and mores, demanding the government be conformed to meet their individual needs, juxtaposed to having a government that abides by its Constitution created to provide for all Americans.
The idea of celebrating differences is among other things nothing more than a thinly veiled attempt to portray homosexuality as being normal and healthy. The reality is anything but. Homosexuality is neither normal nor is it healthy. Television can portray it anyway it wants, but the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) website presents a very different reality. In short, celebrating homosexuality as normative and acceptable is having a debilitating affect on our society.
Celebrating people as a “color” juxtaposed as “Americans” is divisive and foments the inferiority of one group, or groups, and allows guilt to be inculcated into the psyches of another group based on color of skin.
The fact is America is not united by the celebration of our differences; America is united by the embracing of that which bonds us as one.
Celebrating differences carries with it the unspoken connotation of doing what one pleases without respect for propriety or laws that have been established to protect the welfare of all.
One of the surest ways to destroy a nation and provide for anarchy is to encourage the deconstruction of the nation as a nation. We need look no further for evidence of same than at what is taking place in the Middle East.
Just because we have yet to experience the punishment that awaits us for abrogating that which America was founded on doesn’t mean the day isn’t coming when we will. In fact it doesn’t mean that day isn’t a lot closer than we think.[adsanity id=11817 align=alignleft /]
