WASHINGTON -- Racist Teaparty Republican Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said Thursday "diversity has never been America's strong suit, so lawmakers should pass his ENGLISH ONLY bill in the name of unifying the nation."
The racist said: "One of the great things about America is we've been unified by a common language. That common language, of course, is English. Our language is getting subdivided by some forces of the federal government. It is time to speak ENGLISH ONLY."
Nutcase King talked to reporters just after the House Judiciary Committee's Subcommittee on the Constitution held a hearing on his measure, which would require all federal government communications, including voter and ballot materials, to be conducted in ENGLISH ONLY. His proposal would also nullify a Clinton-era requirement that federal agencies provide interpreters for non-English speakers for certain activities.
King said he is not a racist. King's view of a NON DIVERSE SOCIETY in his bill is aimed at "bringing the country together. After all, diversity has never been America's strong point."
"The argument that diversity is our strength has really never been backed up by logic," nutcase King said. "It's unity is where our strength is. Our Founding Fathers understood that. Modern-day multiculturalists are defying that."
During the committee hearing, Democrats said King's bill violates the Constitution and impedes voting rights. "Having already spent an extraordinary amount of committee time and resources in an effort to roll back the civil rights of women, persons with disabilities, gay and lesbian Americans and other minorities, our majority colleagues are now using the last day before the House adjourns until September to highlight a bill that would place at risk the 24.5 million people in the United States who need language assistance from their government in some situations," said Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.).
Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.) gave his opening remarks entirely in Spanish -- with imperfect pronunciation to make the point that our country has always been a multilingual one.
