“There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism.”
“Any man who carries a hyphen about with him carries a dagger that he is ready to plunge into the vitals of this Republic.”
“We have been here when President Woodrow Wilson insisted that the Espionage Act was necessary to save American lives, only to watch him use that Act to prosecute 2,000 Americans, especially those he disparaged as ‘Hyphenated Americans,’ most of whom were guilty only of advocating peace in a time of war.”
“The country does not want to be segmented...If the Democrat Party is giving us African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, gay-Americans, homosexual-Americans, lady-Americans, female-Americans, all this hyphenated-American stuff has come from your party because you desire people segmented!”
