Theodore Roosevelt (1894). True Americanism

“We must Americanize them (the newcomers to our shores) in every way, in speech, in political ideas and principles, ... We welcome the German or the Irishman who becomes an American. .. We do not wish German-Americans and Irish- Americans who figure as such in our social and political life; we want only Americans, and, provided they are such, we do not care whether they are of native or of Irish or of German ancestry. We have no room in any healthy American community for a German-American vote or an Irish-American vote, and it is contemptible demagogy to put planks into any party platform with the purpose of catching such a vote. We have no room for any people who do not act and vote simply as Americans, and as nothing else...”.
