The United States seems hell-bent on making all nationalities resident here inclusive – even those who aren’t here legally and those who fail to assimilate into American culture.
And those who refuse to learn or use English.
My ancestors came here legally from Germany (and Ireland – kinda already speaking English!). learned it and assimilated. There were proud Americans.
Witness below the nation/nation-state/Russian satellite of The Ukraine:
Nationalism unites, and multi-culti ‘diversity’ divides. So does culture and language.
– Paying attention yet America? Liking how that whole ‘diversty’ joke is working for you?
Belgians have the whole Flemish vs. Walloon thing.
– I don’t know if this is WHY Brussels is so dysfunctional, but when all else fails it never hurts to go with “blame the French.”
Many of us understand what happened in the former Yugoslavia. The linguistic divide between Bosnian-Croatian-Serbian, Slovene, and Macedonian (plus a few more languages) made the ‘country’ less functional than their infamous car, the Yugo. (map and text courtesy of Theo Spark)
Is anyone in our State Department listening? If not, press one for ENGLISH.
