Take America back with English Language Bill: By Kevin Fobbs - July 8, 2012
For far too long Americans have allowed themselves to be lulled into a neat little corner of dulled complacency because political correctness and intellectual piracy has subjugated citizens to become mentally enslaved by the politically correct thought police at the expense of Americans English language heritage. If this constitutional wrecking ball continues at this unrestrained pace, Obama may well decide that his socialist-minded hubris demands that by presidential executive order, English, become relegated to second, third or last place status, Because it is the right thing to do!
This must no longer be tolerated here in this nation or in any state in the nation. We can no longer afford to be asleep at the switch while, our children, our nieces and nephews and grandchildren our penalized because precious educational dollars are siphoned off to accommodate illegal alien children who continue to learn to speak in the native tongue of their foreign country....

I note that you only rarely post a comment, and that you only
post threads about “articles” you yourself have “written”.
Isn’t that curious?
Why do you think you are doing that?
Could it be that you wish to siphon a bit of traffic away from Free Republic?
Oh, Kevin. If that is your goal here, I must rebuke you.
That would be a very scummy and dirtbaggish thing for you to do, Kevin.
I gots to gets me some hits!
This can be shortened to “Forced multilinguism is racism.”
That is, the English language is the ‘lingua franca’ of the world, of commerce, of international travel, of a lot of modern science and technology.
Literacy in the English language is so vital to prosperity in the United States that Noam Chomsky has been able to deny millions of black Americans education, success and self sufficiency, by promulgating his utterly worthless “Whole Language” English instruction on them.
At the time it was invented, black American students had English language skills almost on a par with white students. But after a single decade of being deprived of English language skills, their grades plummeted, because if you do not know English, there is little else you can learn in school.
And Chomsky’s followers, in the face of vast amounts of evidence that Whole Language is an utter failure, still push for its adoption by schools.
So Chomsky can proudly proclaim that he has done more than anyone who ever lived, to oppress and impoverish black Americans.
It can be put quite simply to immigrants: “Learn English or you family will be poor for generations.”
Arizona’s “English Only” referendum got passed without anyone being mad at Republicans:
Arizona Proposition 103:
English as Official Language
Why don't you learn to WRITE English?
Poosh dos por eeeenglish.
Yes, the multilingualism problem in public education is very important, but I'm particularly appalled at the federal mandates for multilingual election ballots, which add expense, confusion and practical difficulties (like either a very large size or very small print to accommodate all the languages) to the most vital process in the country. IF SOMEONE CAN'T VOTE IN ENGLISH IN AN AMERICAN ELECTION, HE OR SHE SHOULDN'T BE VOTING AT ALL!!!
'Rats and RINOS in Congress (and the executive branch) have been too patronizing of immigrants - legal and illegal - for far too long. Instead of encouraging assimilation, they are encouraging balkanization of American society.
Oh, I'm real sure that "English Only" will "take America back". Yup...pass that and all ills disappear.
What a doofus.
“IF SOMEONE CAN’T VOTE IN ENGLISH IN AN AMERICAN ELECTION, HE OR SHE SHOULDN’T BE VOTING AT ALL!!!”
Bring back the Poll Tax.

> Arizona’s “English Only” referendum...
‘English Only’ is a misnomer foisted by the left to depict the movement as oppressive and intolerant. It conjures up images of police breaking in doors, confiscating books in other languages, and dragging their owners off to jail (or arresting people for speaking other languages). ‘Official English’ or ‘English First’ are more accurate names. People are free to know as many languages as they please (I speak two, and read many more). The aim of the movement is to preserve English as the common language of the people of the United States, which is quite different from purging other languages from the country.
Will take a damned-site MORE than an english language bill....
Looks like some have underestimated “THEM”... big time..
Republicans love to under estimate democrats.. and do..
By giving the bastards the benefit of the doubt..
Republicans are mostly all PollyAnnas.. in a dream world..
This is my last election as a republican.. talk about begging for defeat..
Republicans win sometimes but absolutely HATE winning..
Republicans HATE winning... face it...

And it’s not just the matter of understanding the words on the ballot. People who don’t learn English are greatly limited in their access to the information about this country needed to make intelligent decisions about politics (and many other things in our society).
Oh really? And us Arizonans thought we would get to break down doors. /s
Surely by now you realize that any descriptive words will be called oppressive and intolerant by the left. Why do you let them control your very words, and in fact, do their work for them?
