Whoever's filling in for The Leprechaun today played a sound byte of The Governator giving a speech. He told immigrants that they had to learn to speak english, that they should take night classes to learn english and that they need to "turn off the Spanish TV"!




ETA - I hate that fuckin' Telemundo!

It would have been cooler if he said, "Turn off the TV....then go the fuck home." Even better, he could have acted like a bar bouncer and said "You ain't got to go home, but you sure as shit can't stay here". I would have lol'd.

It would be better if he "turned off" bilingual education....

Big +1 on that there. My grandfather came here, and while he never did get citizenship, he for sure learned how to speak the language.

If he can do it, then why the hell can't they????? ( Shhh its because we cater to certain people donchaknow.... shhhhh they're 'special' donchaknow.... )

Im all up for being multilingual, but I refuse to speak it to them if they refuse to learn my language. I pretty much take the state/federal/government forms and such in spanish as a slap in the face.

You dont learn the language... you don't rate shit.

A little known fact is he speaks perfect English. His accent is fake. His PR folk recommend that he continue using it.

Not to hijack but here in Austin Texas we are getting a new Chief of Police. He gave his first public speech to we the citizens yesterday, in Spanish. He comes highly recommended from California.

Are our traffic ticket going to be in Spanish now? Not that that would get them paid!

If all the illegal mexicans in California went home the death toll would be enormous. All those Californians with dirty homes, unmanicured lawns and no fast food or people to cook it at home for them.

Good God man, think of the good just THAT alone would do the country. Half of Hollywood would be dead within a week!

Huh? Our schools have been "english only" since voters approved a ballot initiative several years ago.

ETA: Prop 227 passed in 1998.


Doesn't seem to be enforced. I work in a huge museum/public education destination and we get a ton of school groups, many with the teachers speaking exclusively Spanish to the students. Anybody you can report these people to? I too thought that Prop 227 was the law... It's my fricken tax dollars they're spending.

Don't forget about the dirty dishes piled up to the ceiling, the stench coming from the bathrooms and delapidated hotels and office buildings.

You know.. they do have some nice looken wiminns on from time to time.

But Telemundo's advertisers don't want them to turn of the TV. Their loyality is to coin, not nationalism.
