The story of the Tower of Babel is the story of America.
The towers construction began with an idea. The idea was to get the people to come together to build a tower to get closer to G-D.
So, they began to build the tower. Initially, the work was difficult and everyone that was part of the community went to help. People talked to one another and through the physical act of labor, bonds were built as well. These people were from many different strange lands. Just like America. But they had a common goal. The people that came to this place wanted to BUILD something. They VESTED their ENERGIES in to this cause. That was part of the price of admission. The America of long ago had this requirement as well. Today’s America does NOT. The people of Babel continued to build the tower. This took multiple generations. Meanwhile the women who supported the men in this cause, would create the domesticity and the ROOTS that these men built the Tower on. After a while there were many many people, because the project, although it was the thing that created this little society of people, was now, not as important as before. The people were getting fat and happy to just continue living and not working on the tower. Since, many people had come from all over, and this was deemed as good, they continued to bring MORE people in. However, they were no longer required to “contribute” their labor to the building of the tower. Since there was no reason to communicate with each other in the one cause of building the tower, the people decided that they don’t need to have formal communication. This group of people grew larger. By the Third generation, the tower was still not built. The people continuing to build the tower were dwindling. The tower was now starting to fall apart. All projects need maintenance. No one wanted to help and besides, they couldn’t even communicate to each other why this maintenance was important. The people that were now building the tower, were no longer building on a voluntary bases. They were now the slaves of the people that had come later. Those people who came later said that they were the reasons why the people building the project were able to continue to build. The people who came later said that they were the foundation of that society, since they were the majority. Yet the builders were the ones who created the supplies and the necessities of life so that the building project could advance. The non builders were there to consume the by product of the necessities for the building of the tower. The by product was now the goal and not the tower. The non builders, however, didn’t want to participate in the building process. They didn’t even like to communicate with the builders. The non builders became hostile when the builders decreed that they were to be the primary precipitants of their labor. People began to mistrust one another. Fights broke out for that lack of necessities. Quickly, after that the people turned to one anther and turned AWAY from each other, because they had nothing in common. The people hadn’t even a language in common. The will to survive together was non existent. There was no common purpose, goal, or investment. Then, the tower collapsed. G-d had his vengeance on the people of Babel. But whose fault was it? The fault was with the Builders, who allowed the non builders to remain and had nothing VESTED. So, the tribes of ISRAEL were scattered to the 4 corners of the earth.
Will America suffer the same fate? Where would the people of America go? Where would we scatter to? Maybe this time no one will need to scatter. The four corners will come to us.
Like Michael Savage says “the culture of diversity is the culture of perversity”
Inclusiveness is good, but their must be a common culture and goal. The investment by each individual must be made.
What Happens When Diversity Displaces America’s Language and Culture?

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN DIVERSITY DISPLACES AMERICA’S LANGUAGE AND CULTURE?
Re: “60 languages, one high school: South embraces student diversity” O’Connor, Denver Post, 8/20/10
For the past 30 years, somebody, somewhere, or a group of people in high places decided to destroy the successful equation of “melting pot” within America. That ‘entity’ decided to pitch diversity and multiculturalism as the new monikers dismantling English as America’s common language. “It” decided to inject hundreds of incompatible cultures and languages intoAmerica while adding another 100 million people to stress the environment even further.
That same “It” worked its magic in France, Great Britain, Holland, Norway, France, Belgium and other countries-with devastating results: fragmenting, balkanizing and separated societies.
Like a group of chemistry students in a classroom where the teacher leaves for an emergency phone call-for kicks or giggles-the students start tossing multiple chemicals into a test tube to see what happens. Result: the mixture either melts the tube down or explodes. No one knows what kind of volatility may occur.
Today, our once “stable and sustainable” population suffered growth from a reasonable 194 million people in 1963 to a unsustainable 309 million in 2010. While we continue ‘celebrating’ our amazingly ‘diverse’ society with immigrants from over 150 countries, speaking 100 languages-in reality, the wheels fall off the ‘romantic’ pitch by newspapers such as the Denver Post and television networks across the USA. You will hear “racist confrontations” in dozens of media outlets weekly.
On the educational side, Brian Williams reported a 76 percent dropout/flunkout rate in Detroit,Michigan schools last spring. Why? They feature 50 different languages and unending diversity. Everyone speaks a slew of languages except English, they don’t know Thomas Jefferson, promotetheir own cultures and they call themselves hyphenated-Americans. Illiteracy rates exceed 50 percent according to an article in Time Magazine. (Source: Tragedy of Detroit, Time Magazine)
But hundreds of schools throughout the USA in major cities like LA, San Francisco, Chicago, Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, Miami, Denver and others suffer 50 to 60 percent dropout/flunkout rates. Denver vacillates between 52 to 67 percent dropout/flunkout rates. Brian Williams added, “About 1.2 million teens hit the streets every spring unable to read or write.”
What happens when this country finds itself without a common language, culture and national identity? What happens when enough immigrants do not, cannot or will not integrate into Americansociety? What happens when their cultures and languages trump America’s culture and English language? Today, 42 million Americans cannot read or write. Another 50 million read at the fourth grade level. Name the one term that defines third world societies: illiteracy. America degrades with every illiterate citizen.
You can see it accelerating in Islamic Detroit, Michigan. Already, we hear calls for Sharia Law. ForAmericans that don’t understand Sharia – it runs counter to everything in Western law. It subjugates women, commits barbaric acts such as female genital mutilation and calls for honor killings of women for minor infractions. Mexican reconquista operates in the Southwest and children continue to fare poorly in schools after several generations because of their ‘poverty culture’ roots in Mexico. In Arizona last week, immigrants painted the American flag with Nazi swastikas and stomped on it at the capital in Phoenix.
In New York, February 16, 2009, FOX News, Joshua Rhett Miller reported, “The estranged wife of a Muslim television executive feared for her life after filing for divorce last month from her abusive husband,” her attorney said – and was found beheaded Thursday in his upstate New York television studio. Aasiya Z. Hassan, 37, was found dead on Thursday at the offices of Bridges TV in Orchard Park, N.Y., near Buffalo. Her husband, Muzzammil Hassan, 44, has reportedly been charged with second-degree murder.
Adam Gadahn: The California-born Muslim convert assists Shukrijumah and Osama bin Laden as al-Qaida’s chief propagandist. He tailors the group’s message to American Muslims. In 2006, Gadahn invoked U.S. Muslims to attack military bases. Three years later, U.S. Army Major Hasan shot 43, killing 13 at Fort Hood.
Anwar Awlaki: Articulate and media savvy, the American-born cleric is al-Qaida’s top recruiter of Western suicide cells. Awlaki has recruited or radicalized countless homegrown terrorists, including the Fort Hood shooter and the Times Square bomber, both English-speaking citizens. Authorities also believe he ordered the Christmas airliner attack. Thought to be bin Laden’s heir, Awlaki has called onAmerican Muslims to turn against their government, “Jihad against America is binding on every other (American) Muslim,” he said.
For Americans that cherish the successful “melting pot” concept, at what point do they lose control of their culture, language and way of life-in favor of a polyglot of incompatible cultures, religions and languages?
At what point will all those countries ‘exhausting’ their excess population into America-take responsibility for their own fecundity and their own citizens-in their own countries?
At what point will Americans stand up for being Americans? On every level-unrelenting and accelerating immigration cannot be sustained environmentally, educationally, linguistically or culturally-if America hopes to survive the 21st century.
Latest figures show the USA adding 70 million immigrants within 25 years. Can we remain sustainable? Ask anyone in Bangladesh, Mexico or India!
