I don't understand why you English-firsters won't just learn Spanish. Why won't you? Do you see some value in NOT knowing Spanish?

What an idiot.

So bigoted he assumes everyone who thinks Americans should learn to speak English can't speak another language.

I speak French. My eldest child speaks Japanese. My second speaks Japanese and German. My third speaks German. My fourth hasn't selected a language yet.

Just how many languages other than English should Americans be required to learn?

It continually astounds me how this position, totally void of thought, can pass for serious intellect on the left.
