Thank You Sen.Chris Harris!

During committee testimony this week in Austin, a Texas senator interrupted a Spanish speaker telling him he should "be speaking in English" during a committee hearing.
- Amen Senator Harris! A-fuckin'-men! If there were more senators like this guy, maybe we would see some "change" for the better in this country for once.

Two minutes into Antolin Aguirre’s testimony, Sen. Chris Harris, a Republican from Arlington, interrupted asking Aguirre’s interrupter, "Did I understand him correctly that he has been here since 1988?" Harris asked. "Why aren’t you speaking in English then?"
- Boom! It's that easy! We all know the obvious answer, but at least Sen. Harris called the wetback out in a public forum like that. I only would've added, "English is the official language of this country. Learn it, or get the fuck out!"

It's still kind of early in the day, but I think I'm going to crack open a few beers and get warmed up for tonight. Cheers Senator Chris Harris! Fuckin' cheers!

You can read the rest here, but this Youtube clip pretty much says it all.

The interpreter didn’t get it exactly right, what was really spoken in Spanish was;
Why don’t you gringos quit being so tight assed?
All us illegals want is enough free shit so we don’t have to go back where we belong. We’ll even vote Democratic so it’ll be easier for us.

This needs to be a main theme in the coming 2012 election. We need to make this country as uninviting, inconvenient and just plain mean for those that either come here ilegally OR fail to assimilate. We don't want, or need these third world cretins coming here as it is because of them that we have many of the problems we currently have. We should make laws that if you are residing in this country for more than 6 months and can't speak English in a simple conversation, you are automatically deported. This guy for President.

That wetback can go fuck himself. If you want to live here speak fucking English especially if you can. And more so if you are testifying in front of the Texas congress.

What an arrogant a-hole! He not only insulted all those present in the room, but all Americans as well! Basically, what he is saying is "I don't have to assimilate to your laws, traditions, language, or culture, you must accommodate me because I'm too stupid and/or lazy to be bothered with it!"

NO other ethnic group to my knowledge gets this kind of treatment! We have many legal citizens here that speak foreign languages that took the time to learn English--Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean, French, Irish--the list is endless! If they don't get this special treatment, why the hell should the Spanish? Oh, I forgot--Democrats get their votes, it all makes sense now.

Que?

Sen. Harris was correct. So many news reports make it sound as if he went nuts on Aguirre but the video/audio proves otherwise.

When in Rome ...

I wish I knew where Irish is spoken. Got anything John?

Loved it.

RE : Glockster69

What I meant by that was that when the Irish came over they took the time to learn the language, and they assimilated--even though many people didn't like them, and in fact attacked them. But you're right, Irish is not a language, I believe they speak Gaelic, not sure, I imagine they speak it in Ireland.

Re : Glockster69

Yup, it's Gaelic :

Irish Language

Re: Gaelic

You're right John. I thought Irish was a nationality. Wasn't aware it was a language too.

In any case, there's no time like NOW for the US to make English the official language of the country. Stop printing street signs, ballots, etc in multiple languages at a price we can't, and shouldn't afford.

If someone has legally immigrated into the US, they can speak and read enough English to survive. Future success is now up to the legal immigrant. I could care less about illegal aliens except that they be deported, preferably yesterday.

I can't understand anybody who would live in Texas and would not want to learn the language.

I was just starting to speak English when I went to Texas, in the early 60s. The great Dr.DeBakey, who hired me as a nurse, said he loved my French accent. But the most fun I had, in Houston, was when (upon my request) the people (neighbours, friends and co-workers) took the time and had the patience to teach me the Texan accent. Those sessions (at BBQ Parties) were a riot. A lot of beer was involved of course.

I never made it completely but trying made my life, with the colorful and warmhearted Texas people, an unforgettable experience.
