And what exactly is it that keeps a nation together? Conservatives like me argue that it is shared history, values, and language – the things multiculturalists resent and oppose.
No matter, I think we’ve turned an important corner.
Americans were outraged when they recently saw thousands of leftists, anarchists, and supporters of illegal immigrants marching to demand unconditional citizenship for those who’ve broken the law in Arizona and other places.
And all across the country, folks carefully watched events unfold in California, where five high school students were sent home on Cinco de Mayo for wearing “incendiary” red, white, and blue T-shirts.
Americans may be confused about a lot of things — but they’re clear on one thing. Damn it, if you make the journey to America there’s one thing you’d better be prepared to accept … the notion of E pluribus unum: out of many, one.
If not, don’t let the door hit ‘cha on the way out.
