Liberals Censor Free Speech About Diversity

Another day, another innocent person is destroyed by the social media mob for an innocuous expression of free speech.  The apostles of diversity police our speech and aggressively enforce a speech code according to “politically correct” liberal dogmas.

First it was Congressman Steve King (R-IA), who was wrongly ostracized by his colleagues for wondering when the term Western Civilization became offensive.  A week later it was 15-year-old Nick Sandmann, a junior at Covington Catholic High School, who was confronted at the March for Life by a “tribal elder” banging a drum. 

Next in the hot seat was the president of the University of Notre Dame, Father John I. Jenkins.  He kowtowed to the Native American Student Association by agreeing to cover up 12 large murals that depict Christopher Columbus’s arrival in the New World.  

The latest victim of self-appointed guardians of diversity was the 78-year-old liberal journalist Tom Brokaw, the longtime NBC anchor.  Brokaw, an icon of television news, is also known for chronicling the “greatest generation” of Americans who won World War II and came home to build the greatest country in the world.

In a rare appearance Sunday on Meet the Press, Brokaw commented that “Hispanics should work harder at assimilation. They ought not to be just codified in their communities, but make sure that all their kids are learning to speak English.”

The response to Brokaw’s good advice was fast and furious, to borrow a phrase from the Mexican gun-running operation approved by former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder

Aura Bogado, who is described as an investigative immigration reporter at Reveal, said Brokaw was “arguing classic white supremacist talking points in a deeply racist rant on national television.”  Julio Ricardo Varela, the founder of, said “It really was a punch in the gut to a lot of people.”

Brokaw’s fellow commentator on Meet the Press, PBS NewsHour’s Yamiche Alcindor, said: “We need to adjust what we think of as America.  The idea that Americans can only speak English, as if Spanish and other languages wasn’t always part of America, is in some ways troubling.”

People who cannot speak, understand, read and write English will never be able to advance socially, economically or politically in our country.  It’s not true that “Spanish and other languages” were “always part of America,” given that none of the Founding Fathers spoke or wrote in Spanish.

Nothing says immigrants to this country cannot retain their first language. But to become a true part of this society they need to be able to read, write and speak English. That isn't a racist comment, it is a truth that needs to be understood.

Every ethnic group that comes to America has had to give up their native tongue and embrace American English. EVERY SINGLE ONE. It doesn't matter if they were Irish (one dear immigrant lady who was the mother of one of my friends growing up couldn't understand people's offense when she went around asking for fags one day), German, Swedish, Chinese, Vietnamese, or Hindi. Why Spanish speakers feel they deserve special treatment is beyond me, unless they are like "la Raza" members, who believe they are superior to every other race.
