Festive occasions

Allowing people into a nation who do not identify themselves as part of that nation—who do not speak the language, who do not observe the holidays, who do not know or care about the history and ideals and cultural icons—is simply suicidal.

So perish all compromises with tyranny! And let all the people say, Amen!William Lloyd Garrison
