Man Glad He Carries Gun After Hearing Foreign Languages At Supermarket
My husband and I heard a man speaking Spanish on the phone as we walked through Lowes the other week, and I remarked to him how 1) I can't imagine feeling rage about it, or 2) having the gall to accost anyone over it.
As a side note, these seem to be people who are proud they speak only one language, like that's an accomplishment.
Ignorance is a virtue for many. They are so ignorant that they cannot spell 'ignorant' nor 'virtue'.
I think he should learn English before he condemns others for speaking another language.
It's too bad that this asshole can be sent back in time to live in a past era where his racism would be acceptable and he could thrive-said people don't deserve to live in the 21st century.
If I can't understand them, they are DEFINITELY talking about committing terrorist acts. #GOPscience
Yes, we are a melting pot. Which is why we became a western global power, economic engine, innovator, and beacon on the hill in our in preceding generations. They would be appalled at how we dropped the ball. I would bet you are more likely to be attacked by someone that speaks "English only" than by someone who speaks English as a second language. Fear and loathing of "others" does not make America great. We have plenty of English-speaking, American-born cheaters, abusers, and criminals we need to be wary of, without focusing our attention only on those people who can speak languages that we cannot understand. Canada is great with two national languages. When I was stationed in Germany, if I tried to speak a few words of German, I was accepted, and treated well for making the effort. It was the same in every European country I visited. Cannot we be accepting of whatever language spoken by those we hear speaking in our midst? How do you know they are not multi-lingual, or at least trying to assimilate?
“Ayn Rand's 'philosophy' is nearly perfect in its immorality, which makes the size of her audience all the more ominous and symptomatic as we enter a curious new phase in our society.... To justify and extol human greed and egotism is to my mind not only immoral, but evil.” - Gore Vidal
In Walden, Henry David Thoreau discusses, 'quiet desperation'. What is it? In your opinion, does 'quiet desperation' drive the human need for escapism? Does it drive a need for a sense of overall purpose in our lives? (Photo credit / Franck Michel)
