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).
Today was the primary election in California, and we voters in Alameda County had even more diversity to bear, er celebrate.
I snapped the photo below at my local polling station, which shows two new languages added to ballots by federal law, Vietnamese and Tagalog, even though immigrants are supposed to understand and speak English to [...]
We residents of the Bay Area love our unique landmark. The bridge never fails to inspire with its beautiful form and how it frames natural vistas of land meeting ocean.
The Chronicle has posted its photo archive of bridge pictures here.
One little-known fact about the bridge is how it was financed. The project was planned during [...]
In California, the April unemployment rate was 10.9 percent and 4200 jobs were lost. Only Nevada and Rhode Island had worse jobless rates (11.7% and 11.2%, respectively).
Even so, some big name businesses are touting their foreign-language-speaking clerks — so diversity-friendly! No companies admit to passing over American English speakers to hire, but you have to [...]
National Public Radio notes the increase of Spanish-speaking kiddies in southern states and the pressure their language diversity has made on schools.
Unsurprisingly, the liberal radio network assumes the advisability of bilingualism where Spanish is accepted as a co-equal language in America. Spanish education will “help create the next generation of bilingual doctors, executives and teachers,” [...]
In Mexican culture, the color line is sharp. The elite political class is comprised of light-skinned European-descended persons, and it is very hard for a dark Mexican to be elected presidente. In 2005 paleface Presidente Vicente Fox angered many black Americans when he said that illegals take jobs “that not even blacks want to do.” Another [...]
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 [...]
There’s a new report filled with lots of interesting Asian statistics, focusing on education but including a wide range of social measures, informing anyone who is interested that Asians residing in America are diverse.
Not all are college graduates. Chinese are high achievers, as we were recently reminded by the Tiger Mom Chinese supremacist imbroglio. But [...]
At a time when astronomical budget deficits have made fiscally responsible leaders warn citizens of necessary belt-tightening ahead, immigrants are about to receive improvements to a little discussed entitlement on the backs of American taxpayers and health insurance purchasers.
Every non-English-speaker is already entitled to a skilled interpreter as a right, piled on the already explosive [...]
This story is a reminder that every state is a border state now. In Nashville, the traditional home of country music, 22 percent of the city’s K-12 students are English learners. Overwhelmed California has only slightly more, at 24 percent.
In addition, Nashville has had a problem with violent Kurdish gangs, as I wrote in 2007: [...]
Extreme levels of immigrations are no longer limited to border regions. Oshkosh, Wisconsin, is learning that celebrating dissimilarity in schools is expensive and complex. The price tag is mounting up as more non-English-speaking kids appear, but teachers remain major Kool-Aid drinkers of the Diversity Is Our Strength poison.
Among the cheerleaders for multiculturalism is the Diversity [...]
