Republican elites apparently confuse “outreach” with hispandering, as shown by the party’s Tuesday initiation of a Spanish language Twitter feed.
This action follows another colossally bonehead undertaking, the decision to put Senator Marco Rubio up as the responder to the President’s State of the Union address — in English and Spanish.
Note to GOP suits: Americans don’t [...]
The Republican Party’s designation of Sen Marco Rubio as its voice of the diverse future is looking worse all the time. Not only is he the crown prince of the Senate amnesty plot, er framework, but now he has been chosen to give the Republican response to the President’s State of the Union speech — [...]
The legislation written by sovereignty stalwart Steve King (R-Iowa, pictured) was examined Thursday in a hearing by the House Judiciary Subcommittee on the Constitution.
You would think that a policy supported by an overwhelming majority of American citizens would get a little respect (e.g. a 2010 Rasmussen poll found 87 percent of voters support official English).
The decision of a major Spanish-language network in America to broadcast on a new English-language platform is quite the reversal of accepted liberal opinion.
We have been told for decades that sensitive hispanics require the comfy reassurance of their mother tongue to receive any information at all, or they would be deeply insulted. As a result [...]
A sign of the times is how another Mexifornia county (out of 58) is now required to provide ballots in Spanish, as required by the Voting Rights Act. Napa is one of 27 counties in the state so encumbered with the extra expense of producing non-English voting materials.
The reason is the increased hispanic population in [...]
What is it with Republican candidates and their odd fascination with Puerto Rican statehood? Mitt Romney expressed support for the proposal in January while speech-making in Miami, and Gingrich was a statehooder back when he was Speaker and was launching his habit of hispandering politics.
The idea is an uninformed, foolish hope to entice “hispanics” to [...]
Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich both spoke at the Hispanic Leadership Network in Miami on Friday morning. Puerto Rican statehood was an important issue to some in the audience and it was brought for the speakers to opine.
Gingrich favored Puerto Rican statehood when he was Speaker as part of his blossoming hispander self, and that [...]
Bilingualism with a legal underpinning as it exists in Canada is a disastrous policy and America should avoid it at all costs. Unfortunately, we seem headed inexorably in that direction due to the Mexican invasion, er immigration. America does not have official bilingualism (where people have to speak both perfectly) although in some regions a [...]
National Public Radio remains one of the top liberal propagandists for open borders and a Mexicanized diversity in America. While the elite New York Times reached around 1.3 million readers for its Sunday edition as of a year ago, NPR’s top shows have a listenership of up to 13 million weekly. NPR is very influential [...]
Add “bilingual” preference on the part of business to the increasing ways that Americans face unfair treatment in our own nation. More and more, citizens are expected to know the language of the invader while Spanish speakers do not need to speak English.
We already pay for translations of official documents into various languages for the [...]
Rep. Mike Coffman (R-CO) says he wants to end the federal bilingual ballot requirement.
Actually, he should oppose multilingual ballots, because here in uber-diverse California, some counties are forced by Washington to produce election materials in several languages. Federal law required Los Angeles County to provide ballots and materials in six languages as of 2005.
Furthermore, language [...]
It’s disappointing that only 58 percent of Americans believe that ballots should be English-only, a decrease of 10 points from five years ago.
Language diversity in elections does not come cheap because of translation and printing costs. For example, Los Angeles County spent $3.3 million to produce ballots in seven languages and hire diverse poll workers [...]
