американизм с дефисом

“There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism...
a hyphenated American is not an American at all”

-- Teddy Roosevelt, October 12, 1915


Cartoon from Puck, August 9, 1899.
Uncle Sam sees hyphenated voters and asks: "Why should I let these freaks cast whole ballots when they are only half Americans?"
