If Americans think “Push #1 for English” is infuriating, or listening to El Bloombito, aka Miguel Bloomberg, follow up all his press conference remarks with “Let me summarize our announcement today for our Spanish speaking New Yorkers” after which el se rompe en (he breaks into) poorly-spoken Spanish, now a US Senator from Virginia has felt moved to ratchet up the drama by delivering a pro-amnesty speech in – you guessed it – Español.
That’s right. Senator Timoteo Kaine (Tim Kaine) , a Democrat from Virginia, felt he could drive home the necessity to pass the immigration bill by reminding the chamber that there are millions of Spanish-speaking people living in the US who simply refuse to assimilate or learn the language and are trying desperately to make English a Second Language for Americans who speak English as a First Language.
Senator Kaine, who defines himself as a “gringo,” opened his trilling, er, I mean thrilling remarks by saying, “El senado ha comenzado un debate histórico sobre una reforma migratoria comprensiva.” This means “The Senate has started an historic debate about comprehensive immigration reform.”
After spouting off in Español for the remainder of his speech, former Governor/current Senator Kaine promised that an English translation would be placed into the Congressional Record for the peons who refuse to accommodate all the illegals who live and work in America by learning to speak Spanish.
Mr. Kaine is bi-lingual because before he became pro-choice and endorsed Barack Obama, while he was still in law school and pro-life, he traveled with the Jesuits to Honduras on a Catholic missionary outreach. Wonder whether Mr. Kaine’s liberalism and support of our socialist/Marxist president is rooted in Jesuit Liberation Theology?
Nonetheless, it was in Honduras where Señor Kaine learned to speak the native language of the Honduran people. Which begs the question: If Timoteo learned Spanish in Honduras, why doesn’t he encourage Hondurans to learn to speak English in America?
Either way, the goal of the Spanish Senate Speech stunt was for a guy born in Minnesota, raised in Kansas City, and now Senator of Virginia to illustrate how accepting he is of being invaded by illegals from Spanish-speaking countries and to prove the “growing power of Spanish-language” trespassers in the U.S.
