> 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.
