“The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing as a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities.” (President Teddy Roosevelt over 100 yrs ago)
A Texas middle school principal Amy Lacey, will lose her job after announcing to the school that all students must speak English on campus.
Naturally the left-ards, lawyers and racists have turned it into a civil rights issue. They’re sicking the FBI and our unJustice Dept on them to look into other acts of possible intimidation against Hispanic students.
Why would a principal or a teacher ask students in AMERICA to speak only English? Could it be because its the official language of business, the US court system, the language of higher education in this country, etc., in the United States where they live? Could it be that they need English in order to graduate,
survive and thrive in our system -oh forget the survive part, many survive just fine on welfare, EBT cards, free phones, earned income tax credits, SNAP/food stamps, utility assistance, paid car insurance, etc., etc. But Spanglish really keeps them down on the farm. If you want to educate and help these kids compete in these United States, they need to be fluent in English.
. . . . . or how about Arabic?
Call the Public Assistance office in Michigan and you are told to “Press 1 for English. Press 2 for Spanish, or Press 3 for Arabic”! CHECK IT OUT YOURSELF 1-888-678-8914. Or go to the Michigan Dept of Human Services under FORMS and Publications. Every form with the letters “AR” behind them are in Arabic.
This is outrageous! I knew we were doomed 30 years ago when California adopted bilingual education. But when did Arabic sneak into the AMERICAN culture?
People living in America who refuse to learn English are a huge additional cost to taxpayers! Every time we add a new language to an American program (think DMV, voter forms, school enrollment, medical information, insurance information, WELFARE applications, etc.,) it requires additional people fluent in those languages to process these non-English speakers.
How can we have a civil society and a rule of law when we Balkanize our language and culture to the point it divides us more than it unites us? Where do you draw the line and when is it too late? I guess when states start having separate schools and school districts for Hispanic or Arabic speaking students we’ll know we’re beyond the point of no return.
