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 [...]
It’s funny how foreigners will cross boiling hot deserts to reach America, but once here, they avoid Americans like the plague and gather in ethnic enclaves where they erase the United States as much as possible. In some balkanized locales of extreme hispanicity, like Miami, learning to speak English is not necessary and the foreigners [...]
House Judiciary Chair Bob Goodlatte appears to have suffered some direct hits after his recent declaration of support for legalization on Spanish-language television.
The Daily Caller quoted Goodlatte from his recent performance (Goodlatte reverses statement on amnesty, again, 1/13/14):
“I see no reason why we can’t also have an agreement that shows how people who are not [...]
The Associated Press has plopped out an article that is rather curious. It worries over the idea that immigrants are increasingly living in communities of “racial isolation.” The scribbler visits California farm town Watsonville and frets that nearly everyone is Mexican and speaks Spanish. A hispanic who was the first mayor of his ethnicity observed, [...]
LA’s most diverse sport is already pretty espanol, but now the owner of the team is accused of harassing non-Mexicans into quitting their jobs, and not just the players in the public eye, but office staff.
The case has taken the form of a lawsuit by the aggrieved American employee, since the Mexican billionaire owner of [...]
The one good thing about the firearms debate ginned up by Obama’s gun grabbers is the increased reporting of successful instances of self-defense showing up in the media. Most don’t get reported at all; the press prefers to broadcast the bad news that includes guns.
Professor Emeritus James Q. Wilson of UCLA said, “We know from [...]
To the many establishment Republicans who believe as a matter of faith that a big amnesty for millions of foreign intruders is the key to future popularity, you can add John Sununu, the former Governor of New Hampshire. He apparently believes that the GOP can win the hispander bidding war against Democrats from Chicago.
Sununu urges [...]
In the White House, the re-election brain trust is gearing up to promote Obama as the great friend of hispanics, even though his promise to enact a mass amnesty in the first year of his Presidency never happened. In fact, he was busy with other things that he thought more important, in particular jamming through [...]
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 [...]
One of the most disturbing aspects to the unwelcome Mexicanization of the United States is the intrusion of Spanish into American life. There is nothing that prevents assimilation more than the increasing ease by which Spanish speakers can function in this country without learning English, a situation created by both business and government.
Furthermore, when millions [...]
It didn’t take long for Obama’s executive amnesty for illegal aliens to be followed by a major opinion piece in the New York Times complaining about voters being required to show identification at the polling place. How convenient for illegal aliens who want to vote to Obama!
Timed to coincide with the dedication of the made-in-Red-China [...]
An interview with a hispanic education advisor in the White House indicates an interesting combination of honesty and a sense of entitlement. Juan Sepulveda admits that hispanic students are at rock bottom of academic achievement (unlike other immigrant groups such as Asians who adapt readily to America’s education opportunities).
In fact, the hispanic education environment is [...]
