Theodore Roosevelt’s ideas on immigrants and being an AMERICAN in 1907………..
“In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed or birthplace or origin.
But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American…
There can be no divided allegiance here.
Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. (i.e., ‘african american’ for example?! Then WHY DID THEY COME HERE? GO HOME! This goes for muslim american, mexican american and german american, and ‘this’ american and ‘that’ american. Don’t come here and work to make us like what you just escaped from – go back there if America is not ‘right’ for you!)
We have room for but one flag, the American flag… (stop burning, cutting, shredding and trampling on OUR flag – we don’t dishonor YOUR flag – go home!)
We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language. (Don’t expect us to learn YOUR language – this is OUR country! Learn English – no other language will be accepted here in OUR nation. If we were to move to or even visit your nation, would you have English as your nation’s language?)
And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.’
Theodore Roosevelt 1907
So ….. WHY have Americans ALLOWED the illegals and immigrants to come in to OUR land and turn it in to a huge land of mismash, confusion, crime and expectation of living off the back of the hard working Americans while they have more babies to collect more welfare funds, purchase newer and better autos than many of us will ever own, attend our colleges and univertities for FREE, be provided with FREE medical care, and FREE housing??? And allowed to burn our flag, shout down our national anthem, curse our God, change the laws of our nation to sharia and rape our women and children?
