What happens when Senator Tim Kaine of Virginia makes a 13 minute speech in Spanish on the Senate floor in support of immigration reform? Why, he makes history as the first Senator in history to delivery an entire speech on the floor of the Senate in a language other than English! History! Historia! Tremendous! Tremendo!
Also, as you might have guessed if you read the last post on here, this happens:
"Ur a disgusting fck" says this angry guy and a slew of other super-duper patriotic totally-not-bigots-we-swear American heroes who (barely) speak English!
"Unbelievable!" says Conservative actor / Breitbart blogger Adam S. Baldwin! You may know Mr. Baldwin from his role as Major Mitchell in Independence Day or as Jane from the show Firefly or as a great big douchebag on Twitter.
haha. “Speaking Spanish is offensive because people who speak Spanish tend to vote for the party I do not like.” I honestly don’t understand why Spanish speaking people won’t vote for your party, Jacque…
lmao. Oh, the things said in these tweets must be why they won’t vote for you party. “Have we sold our souls to illegal Mexicans?” asks poor Bob. YES. BOB. AND THEY PAID IN PESOS TOO. And Capslock Vicky over here thinks the answer to her party losing the Latino vote isn’t to support policies that the Hispanics support…it’s to just keep ‘em all out and keep running business as usual!
lmao. Look at all those Twitter avatar flags.
#Nice #use #of #hashtags. #Very #relevant.
"Yeah. if *u* *cant* speak English, get out *AZZ* HOLE."
"TIM KAINE is the BIGOT for SPEAKING SPANISH." What.
And, also, by the way, just a little note, to all these fine scholars. English is not “our language.” There is no official language in the United States of America.
With all that said, Tim Kaine explained that he felt it was important to explain the bill in Spanish because 40 MILLION people in the U.S. speak the language…
…and with that they call him a TRAITOR!
