‘Renounce and Abjure’

Posted on | May 3, 2011 | 7 Comments

“I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same . . .”
Oath of U.S. Citizenship

That oath came to mind when I saw a post at Maggie’s Notebook about an immigrant named Mona Eltahawy, who has gotten herself all worked up into a tizzy about what she calls “frat boy” celebrations of the death of Osama bin Laden.

In the name of “multiculturalism” we have crammed our cities full of people like Mona Eltahawy, who feel no love or allegiance to this country, but instead cling to their narrowly defined ethnic identities, so permanently alienated from the American mainstream that they can feel no joy at our nation’s triumphs. These estranged newcomers — citizens in name only — are the fertile soil on which the seeds of hatred are sown.

“Hey, hey! Ho, ho! We support the PLO!”
