Midly suprised

After the new resolution for English to be the official language was passed by the Oregon Republican Party I wondered if their website would still feature the "in espanol" section. (Along with this picture that existed during the primary)



But thankfully all that is gone now. Go check out the new improved Oregon GOP website and do something to help Republicans get elected in November.

NOTE: You can compare the Republicans agenda to the "new and improved" democrats agenda where concepts like "gender identity" and "gender expression" are now on the list... (Johnny thinks he's a girl now so he's going to go ahead and use ladies dressing room)

The United States has existed for more than 200 years without any such official elevation of English by the federal government. No such measure was written into the US Constitution by the founders. A proposal by John Adams in 1780 to establish an official academy devoted to English was rejected at the time as undemocratic.

Not even at the height of the mass immigration from Eastern and Southern Europe at the turn of the twentieth century, when millions of people speaking dozens of foreign languages flooded into the US, did the American ruling elite feel the need to enact this form of discrimination and disenfranchisement. Why now?

"The World Socialist Web Site" - Sounds a lot like another Dumocrat offshoot into their arcane and somewhat screwed up agenda, does it not? Perhaps the AmINOCLU could be an active part of this thing.

The writer of this posting has conveniently neglected to say that the Mayflower Compact, the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Federalist Papers, all of Thomas Paynes's and Ben Franklins writings, any and all writings by the settlers of Jamestown in 1607, and the Gettysburg Address were written in English. As far as anyone knows all discussions, conversations, and speech-making of the early days of our country were all in English.

It seems to me that all this, and more, would tend to make English the official language of the United States by default, if nothing more. Hell, even the posting by the writer of the above posting is in English.

"There can be no question about the average American's Americanism or his desire to preserve his precious heritage at all costs. Nevertheless, some insidious foreign ideas have already wormed into his civilization....Thus dawn finds the unsuspecting patriot garbed in pajamas, a garment of East Indian origin....He will begin his day with coffee, an Abyssinian plant first discovered by the Arabs....Meanwhile, he reads the news of the day, imprinted in characters invented by ancient Semites by a process invented in Germany upon a material invented in China. As he scans the latest editorial pointing out the dire results to our institutions of accepting foreign ideas, he will not fail to thank a Hebrew God in an Indo-European language that he is one hundred percent (decimal system invented by the Greeks) American (from Americo Vespucci, Italian geographer)."

Indeed, some people don’t understand that this country was made a great one for all those immigrants that wanted a better life... It is good to have a common language to speak one to each other, I like that, but, what’s the deal if we could have more that one? Look on Europeans... Those guys are moving in the right direction, at least they are working like neighbors and mostly of them speak at least some words in two or three languages, why Americans can’t do the same?... By other hand, a person could move to another place, Mexico and Canada will not move anywhere… Better to work together in a solution...

You guys want to be shocked....AGAIN!!!!. Go to Michelle Malkin's site and check out the video of these bastards takeing down the American flag and hoisting he "chicken & worm" flag over a POST OFFICE (Federal property) in Maywood, Calif. A POST OFFICE...you guy's in Calif. Any of you bleeding heart illegal lovers that check Daniels site all the time....this is what is coming. This is why we DO NOT WANT ILLEGALS IN THIS COUNTRY. Assimilation....BULLSHIT!!!!, they are not assimilating. Tearing down the American flag is NOT ASSIMILATION.

By the way, I really want to know what kind of gadget do you have to detect if someone is illegal or not... Faces will deceived you...

Dear Bruce,

Talking on Mexican flag, any flag from any country deserve respect, Why don't stop to speak that way?, respect has two directions... Present yourself as a respectful person, more people will take attention on you...

Hey Al,

Here is one for you, go to Mexico and find out what happens to you if you try and fly the Red, White, and Blue. It is illegal in Mexico to fly another country's flag. Also if you wanted to go and live in Mexico be prepared for the following:

1. You have to be a certified professional (they don't want day laborers there).
2. You have to denounce the country you are from (so much for hanging onto your heritage).
3. You have to speak their language (wow what a concept--one country one language)

There is room for only one flag in the United States of America and that is the Red, White and Blue.

If the illegal aliens want to be a part of this country they need to do so legally (every country has laws on immigration why should ours be different)no one is asking them to do anything different and if they are here illegally go back to the country you came from and stop breaking our laws.

Signed,

A Taxpayer in Washington

Ps. by the way, in some places back there on Mexico, the first language is not Spanish... But German.

If President Bush can claim that the Constitution of the United States is "just a goddamn piece of paper," then I think I will adopt the position that the flag is "just a goddamn piece of cloth."

Attn: Al;

Criminal Illegal Aliens, Felons,
don't merit respect, nor does the country and it's flag that sneaks them across the border.

I think that it's important that we highlight the groups/companies/political parties that want to fracture our country with two different languages.

And it is just two: English and Spanish. Why not French? Why not Latvian?

For the sake of our country and for the sake of the immigrants, English should be compulsory. It already is a requirement for citizenship.

Let's draft a letter withdrawing all support from these groups...so far, Christian Coalition, NRA, Focus on the Family, and the Republican Party...until they remove the Spanish versions of their website!

English-only!

Anonymous AL 3:23pm: You will probably find that any German community in Mexico is largely made up of the descendants of Nazis who got out of Germany at the end of WWII before they could be prosecuted and possibly hanged, much like those German communities in Argentina.

el razonador said...

Scottiebill -- Probably not. German emigrants were settling in North and South America as eary as the late 1700s. The same migration flows that were bringing Germans to the United States, causing Ben Franklin to lament the impending soiling of his cherished anglo-saxon culture, were creating German settlements across Central and South America as well. For this same reason, there are German communities in South Texas that date back to 1845, before the annexation of northern Mexico. I'm not sure what your point was about the ex-Nazis establishing the German population of Mexico and Argentina, but it's historically wrong.

Scottiebill said...

Razonador: You are right about there being German communities in Texas that date back to 1845. So what? There are German communities in North Dakota, also, that probably date back before the turn of the last century. Surely you cannot be disputing the fact that a great many Nazis left Germany and went to Argentina, as well as some other countries in South America, to escape the upcoming war trials. That is documented fact. As for my including Mexico in my statement, I used the word "probably". Apparently the word "probably" is as foreign to you as the word "illegal" is.
