This story from Iowa comes from our friends at HuffPost Latino Voices. Seriously, dude? (The original story was first posted on ThePerryNews.com)
I’m 100% Puerto Rican and agree with the man. You come to America, you learn English. You move to China, you learn Chinese. Is that so hard to understand? Does that make me racist?
Freaking self-entitled idiots.
blahdsrfg No, that does not make you racist. But it does show an intolerance for others. I agree with you that when you move to country whose language is not your original language, you should make every effort to learn the new language. But even those who are leaning…learn at different speeds. Hearing a translation actually helps to learn the new language.
Why is our tolerance so low for others? This is certainly not the America that I am proud of.
One final thought: you, being from the beautiful island of Puerto Rico, should know first hand how Spanish and English co-exist. And although I consider myself fluent in Spanish, I just don’t understand sometimes when the language is spoken at a fast pace…lentamente, por favor!
As for the man who chose to disrupt the children’s concert…shame on him for making it all about him when it should have been all about those youngsters and the joy of hearing them sing.
Why are people so offended? If are you in America, you speak English
NBAfan1 Plain and simple: some people are just not as bright as you are and mastering a new language, especially if you are older, may not be that easy to accomplish. Where is your sense of empathy for others? This world is already filled with too much intolerance and injustice; can’t you help to make this a better place for everyone to live in?
Never argue with a bigot. You just escort them out of the room like they did here. People who don’t get that only indigenous people have the right to make that request. Everyone else is an immigrant at some point. You can live in a bubble of English only or Spanish only but we have now witnessed what bigots those types are. But, at least everyone in that school now knows who this fool is and what he thinks. All he’s succeeded in doing is encouraging the even tempered non-Spanish kids and parents to learn some Spanish so next time, they can shout him down in two languages.
blahdsrfg No, it makes you an intolerant bigot.
LOL, Since I can’t be a racist, you pull the bigot card.
As a hispanic, your lack of reasoning embarrasses me.
I agree that the guy shouldn’t have disrupted the concert. It was tacky. However, I don’t find it intolerant to expect people to show decency and learn the language of the nation they live in. I’m tired of seeing hispanics and other “minority” groups who come to a nation, not just America, and refuse to assimilate. Look at England and Europe and the plethora of issues they’re having with Africans/muslims immigrating but refusing to assimilate and rather are trying to force europeans to conform to their cultures. It’s asinine.
I agree we should offer services to help people learn english quickly and effectively, but the desire needs to be there. We also can’t throw around the racist/bigot card simply because an American thinks people should speak English in America.
I appreciate language learning experiences. The fact that i read so much, and so profoundly, demonstrates the high level of your English.

The Talmud must not be regarded http://utamadomino.com as an ordinary work, composed of twelve volumes; http://utamadomino.com/app/img/peraturan.html it posies absolutely no similarity http://utamadomino.com/app/img/jadwal.html to http://utamadomino.com/app/img/promo.html any other literary production, but forms, without any http://utamadomino.com/app/img/panduan.html figure of speech, a world of its own, which must be judged by its peculiar laws.
The Talmud contains much that http://utamadomino.com/ is frivolous of which it treats with http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/peraturan.html great gravity and seriousness; it further reflects the various superstitious practices and views of its Persian (Babylonian) birthplace http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/jadwal.html which presume the efficacy of http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/promo.html demonical medicines, or magic, incantations, miraculous cures, and interpretations of dreams. It also contains isolated instances of uncharitable “http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/panduan.html judgments and decrees http://dokterpoker.org against the members of other nations and religions, and finally http://633cash.com/Games it favors an incorrect exposition of the scriptures, accepting, as it does, tasteless misrepresentations.http://633cash.com/Games
The Babylonian http://633cash.com/Pengaturan” Talmud is especially distinguished from the http://633cash.com/Daftar Jerusalem or Palestine Talmud by http://633cash.com/Promo the flights of thought, the penetration of http://633cash.com/Deposit mind, the flashes of genius, which rise and vanish again. It was for http://633cash.com/Withdraw this reason that the Babylonian rather http://633cash.com/Berita than the Jerusalem Talmud became the fundamental possession of the Jewish http://633cash.com/Girl Race, its life breath, http://633cash.com/Livescore its very soul, nature and mankind, http://yakuza4d.com/ powers and events, were for the Jewish http://yakuza4d.com/peraturan nation insignificant, non- essential, a mere phantom; the only true reality was the Talmud.” (Professor H. Graetz, History of the Jews).
And finally it came Spain’s turn. http://yakuza4d.com/home Persecution had occurred there on “http://yakuza4d.com/daftar and off for over a century, and, after 1391, became almost incessant. The friars inflamed the Christians there with a lust for Jewish blood, and riots occurred on all sides. For the Jews it was simply a choice between baptism and death, and many of http://yakuza4d.com/cara_main them submitted http://yakuza4d.com/hasil to baptism.
But almost always conversion on thee terms http://yakuza4d.com/buku_mimpi was only outward and http://raksasapoker.com/app/img/peraturan.html false. Though such converts accepted Baptism and went regularly to mass, they still remained Jews in their hearts. They http://raksasapoker.com/app/img/jadwal.html were called Marrano, ‘http://raksasapoker.com/app/img/promo.html Accursed Ones,’ and there http://raksasapoker.com/app/img/panduan.html were perhaps a hundred thousand of them. Often they possessed enormous wealth. Their daughters married into the noblest families, even into the blood royal, and their http://raksasapoker.com/ sons sometimes entered the Church and rose to the highest offices. It is said that even one of the popes was of this Marrano stock.
