Somewhere along the way the Treason Class hopped from denying we were going bilingual to denying there will be any problems with going bilingual. As long as the only visceral "problem" with bilingualism was pushing 1 for Spanish (though actually these days it seems 1 is for English, numero dos para espanol) it was hard for people to call bullshit on the claim that bilingualism wasnt happening or didnt matter. That Rubio can get the white people party's nomination after confirming next week what a lie that has been is something only a modern Republican could believe.

There's always been a segment of Americans, mostly SWPLs, who consider knowing only English to be shameful and provincial. It's pure snobbery and striverdom. There is or was absolutely no reason for Americans to speak any language other than English, because that's what everyone in this huge country spoke at one time (and this tamed ethnic divisions somewhat). The idea that you're supposed to strive your way to learning Chinese or Spanish because this imparts some nebulous educational benefit is the fixation of the SWPL. With whom were we supposed to speak these foreign languages in our daily lives? So these f****ts
Dissolve national unity and then preside over the colorful ethnic factions, this is their stupid dream. It would be hard to beat this for frivolity. And now we know more than any history book could ever teach us how the character of an elite corresponds to national decline.

Thank God I don't watch TV. Holy s**t
Do we really need any more proof? Just send the Republicans to the glue factory already. I promise you they believe having this Iberian ubermenschen talk in Spanish will get them votes because they really believe he's a typical "Hispanic." The five-foot tall Aztec who does their yard and paints their house is a literal un-person. Doesn't even register. They can't even conceptualize what it means to have millions of them in your polity. Republicans are in terminal, geriatric decline in every sense. They don't get that Rubio and the Cubans are natural Republicans because they are Europeans fleeing black/mulatto underclass revolt; Meso's are natural Democrats because they are Indigenous fleeing Iberian overclass rule. You don't need a poli-sci degree to figure this s**t
I would love to see Rubio try to work a crowd of stone-faced Aztecs. They'd probably carve out his liver and eat it in front of him. Or they'd just grin and nod and make a mental note of his routine for the future kidnapping plot.
