Hypocrite Gingrich's 2007 Statement about Spanish and then his Apology in Spanish!

Here is the statement Newt Gingrich made in 2007 about the Spanish language:
“The American people believe English should be the official language of the government. … We should replace bilingual education with immersion in English so people learn the common language of the country and they learn the language of prosperity, not the language of living in a ghetto.”

Now here is his apology to Spanish Speaking People. He made his apology --IN SPANISH -- to hide it from his right wing friends. Now this year, he rolls out a new website called "Americano" which he says is a bilingual website run by Sylvia Garcia, his director of Hispanic outreach and the goal is, to lure Latinos to the GOP and to cash in on Latino Hispanic Heritage Month. Can he spell H-y-p-o-c-r-i-s-y? He may as well have put out a youtube/website saying "You speaky espanol, you stupido, voto para yo, un intelligente republicano!":

Sounds like Obama's pandering to the Hispanic voters during the campaign.

It is clear that Gingrich is not a native speaker of Spanish but everyone should give him credit for trying to convey his message in a foreign language. Reminds me of when some of my relatives in Germany couldn't restrain themselves from laughing when I butchered a few German sentences. Not polite but perfectly understandable.

Gingrich may have butchered his Spanish just as Mexicans regularly butcher English. However, his message was right on and should not have been the subject of ridicule. As I posted elsewhere this message is similar to the Cosby message to Black kids and I might add more or less identical to the message Dee received from her Dad. In general this is a very important issue which does not deserve ridicule of leftwing nuts.

You know as well as I do that Official English Only laws are interpreted by many on your side as stopping anyone from speaking spanish in public.

What is wrong with being bi-lingual? We live in a global society. Many in Europe speak 6 or 7 languages. I took three languages in school. Knowledge and Education are good.

Additionally, there are different patterns of speech all across our country.

The point is, Latinos speak English and I will say, far, far better than Gingrich speaks Spanish.

The reason you want Official English is because you don't want any government documents, especially voting literature or translators provided in Spanish. That is the bottom line for you as we have discussed many times before. You may as well admit it because you will eventually.

Racially Charged Movie - Super Brutal and Racial Sadistic Movie "Higher Learning" 1994 - Racism, Madness, Bastardy, Brutality, Racial Cruelty

This movie is characteristic of a time in America ( the 1980s and early 1990s ) and its "Racial Politics" .... Some Whites meet Blacks, Jews and non Whites for the First Time in College. It has many elements of Culture and History.

Movie is a Great Treasure and "Documentary" of a time and mood. It is Great Cinematography and will grow with time. I reject those reviews that call the movie "simplistic" ... It is indeed very complex and has many levels of complexity, Great Realism and Great Fiction.

A movie with Nazi Skinheads, Racists and Racism.

A Columbia release of a New Deal production. Produced by John Singleton, Paul Hall. Co-producer, Dwight Alonzo Williams. Directed, written by Singleton.

Malik Williams ... Omar Epps
Kristen Connor ... Kristy Swanson Remy ... Michael Rapaport
Taryn ... Jennifer Connelly
Fudge ... Ice Cube
Wayne ...Jason Wiles
Deja ... Tyra Banks
Scott Moss ... Cole Hauser
Professor Maurice Phipps ... Laurence Fishburne
Officer Bradley ...Bradford English
Monet ... Regina King
Dreads ... Busta Rhymez
Billy ... Jay Ferguson
Knocko ... Andrew Bryniarski

Group think, individuality, the importance of education, sexual identity, personal responsibility ( Old Wise Black Professor ), Racial Hatred by Tons.

Malik, a politically unformed Black runner on a sports scholarship, he gets good advice from an Old Wise Man, the Black Professor that teaches him to be controlled, restrained and to be a good and responsible student, a beautiful relation.

Kristen, a naive White girl from the Suburbia, who gets a rude awakening at school, she is raped by a bastard from a White Fraternity; this Girl falling in with a fraternity crowd, this rather dim Southern California beauty launches her college career by getting drunk and date-raped.

Remy, a social misfit White youngster from Idaho who feels threatened by all the minorities he's confronted with for the first time. Remy is very insecure, a loser and failure and he is easy prey for the Nazi Skinheads to use him as a stooge and agent for doing foolish racist things.

Remy is the most tragic character, a loser, his insecurity makes him unable to relate to the other Races or Ethnics and he falls to be manipulated by the Nazi Madmen. Everybody loses in this movie, but Remy is the worst loser, he loses his life, he wasn't probably as bad as the other Nazi Skinheads, but he was their stooge.

Tim McVeigh, Family Dysfunctionality, bullied loner, No Women and Empathy, Arms Obsession, NRA, Military Actions, "Collateral Damage", Was Tim a Racist ?

Timothy McVeigh shows many characteristics that I usually find when studying Racist Criminals and Murderers. However it is hard or impossible to show Tim as a Racist or Hater of Minorities. Tim was very intelligent for computers, for subjects at school, but he was very mentally perturbed from adolescence.

Tim was surrounded by Racist and Supremacist Haters and by their literature, but curiously, it is very difficult to prove that Tim was a Racist. Only one or two small actions would point to Racism. He was not obsessed by Blacks, Latinos or Immigrants. ( That was not the time ).

Tim seems more intelligent that the average racist ( good student ) and extremely obsessed with weapons and military actions. He suffered from this extreme obsession that perhaps left no room for Big Racism. He also was the victim of Horrible Military Scenes in the Gulf War, that was a trauma.

"The American Dream of the middle class has all but disappeared, substituted with people struggling just to buy next week's groceries." ( Tim in 1992 )... This sounds like today's speech but was written by Timothy, discharged GI writing his hometown newspaper in Lockport, New York, during the winter of 1992. This working-class young man would later blow up the Alfred P. Murray Federal Building in Oklahoma City, killing 168 people ( 19 children among them )

Some Excerpts taken from a very long article on Wikipedia :

Timothy McVeigh in Wikipedia

McVeigh was born into an Irish Catholic family. His parents, divorced when he was ten years old.

McVeigh said he was often bullied at school, and that he took refuge in a fantasy world in which he retaliated against them; he would say later that the United States Government was the ultimate bully. McVeigh was quiet, and was said to have had one girlfriend during his childhood. He would later tell journalists that he did not know how to impress girls. According to his authorized biography, "his only sustaining relief from his unsatisfied sex drive was his even stronger desire to die."

McVeigh earned his high school diploma from Starpoint Central High School. While in high school he became interested in computers, and he hacked into government computer systems on his Commodore 64, under the handle "The Wanderer," which was borrowed from the song by Dion DiMucci. In his senior year, McVeigh was named the school's "Most Promising Computer Programmer." He briefly attended Bryant & Stratton College, but dropped out.

McVeigh was introduced to firearms by his grandfather and became increasingly fascinated by them. McVeigh told people he wanted to be a gun shop owner, and he sometimes took a gun to school to impress his classmates. After graduating high school with honors, McVeigh became intensely interested in gun rights and the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, and read magazines such as Soldier of Fortune. His first job was for Burke Armored Car Service.

Political beliefs
McVeigh was known throughout his life as a loner; his only known affiliations were voter registration with the Republican Party when he lived in New York, and a membership in the National Rifle Association while in the military.

“ During dawn runs and their long, exhausting marches over the Georgia sand, their sound-offs revolved around killing and mutilating the enemy, or violent sex with women. ”

He had little interest in the bar scene, preferring to use his spare time to read about guns, sniper tactics, or explosives. He once ordered a "White Power" T-shirt from the Ku Klux Klan in protest against black servicemen who wore "Black Power" T-shirts around his army camp.
