Race remains the prime issue of leftists who use it daily as a club against their political enemies from Washington to Ferguson MO.
But as psychological identifiers go, language is more important. A person of any race can be a loyal and enthusiastic American, but someone who doesn’t speak English cannot be, because non-English speakers remain [...]
Just when you think Loonidiversofornia has gone completely off the rails, it surprises you with an act of sanity. Who knew it was possible?
Due to complaints from citizens who take taxis in Sacramento, the city council unanimously passed an ordinance with requirements spelled out for cab drivers, particularly an ability to speak English. The [...]
Liberals think it’s just mean to insist that immigrants learn English; they would rather Americans be forced to speak Spanish. So in places like Mexifornia, powerful forces nudge the society toward acceptance of the invaders’ language (aka cultural surrender), maybe because bilingualism has been such a famous failure for Canada, and liberals like to employ [...]
The Census has published an updated report about what languages are spoken in the United States and the numbers must look like good news to professional translators, because English is less present. The newbies keep their home-country languages and millions speak those languages at home. In fact, the US is 5th largest Spanish-speaking country, [...]
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 [...]
