If California Congressman Bob Dornan’s defeat by Loretta Sanchez, the tool of Hispanic activists (Cultural Revolutions, February 1997), was not enough to convince our congressional representatives that white Americans are being sacrificed at the altar of “diversity,” they should read a recent editorial published in the Los Angeles Times. Under the caption “Power Will Have a New Face in 1997-98 Legislative Session,” the article informed readers that the balance of power in the California state assembly shifted dramatically thanks to the election of many Latinos and blacks, who have left white males in charge of barely a third of standing committees. The editorial added: “It’s uncertain what these changes will mean for the 1997-98 session.”

I, for one, do not see anything uncertain about the future of a country whose elected officials represent citizens like those quoted in the Los Angeles Times in May 1995: “Citizenship in the United States helps us [Hispanics] to have the culture of one country and participate [vote] in the other’s society. I for one will never stop being a Mexican.” “My father is Mexican and my mother Salvadoran. . . . Both are U.S. citizens but I don’t consider myself a patriot.” Evidently he’s not the only one, because according to the head of the Advisory Committee on Veterans and Military Affairs, a body that advises the mayor of Los Angeles, “If the United States were to go to war with Mexico, it would feel like fighting a civil war to me.”

Our voting laws allow such people to overthrow our government without firing a shot. With American citizens like these, the only thing uncertain is how much longer loyal Americans will have a country that isn’t a facsimile of every Third World hell on the planet.
