Let me go back and review that post.

Huh, just not seeing it.

Sorry.

So what is happening on a national level? Keep in mind we have a study Cindy brought to the thread that says all the immigrants right now are assimilating better than our ancestors.

Not in that line he wasn't.

Are you three divebombers really trying to get this thread shut down?

Why don't you get back on topic. You can start a thread about how we, as American citizens, should embrace the extinction of our culture and language, without having to hijack this one.

I am beginning to believe this is a DREAMie invasion, and they have been instructed to disrupt this board. Their thread derailment is growing tiresome.

I'm pretty sure you started the language hijack after I referenced how Eleanor's world doesn't include legal aliens.

I wouldn't doubt it one bit. Also the ethnocentrics and other pro-illegals are getting desperate because they aren't getting that amnesty that they so desperately want from our government. I hope they throw a complete fit so that Americans can see their true agenda.

Legal immigrants apparently don't even exist in her world.
You mean this post where YOU took the thread off the rails? The Eleanor comment certainly wasn't on topic.

But whatever. It's like talking to a brick wall around here anyway, except that the brick wall conversation is much more productive.

As I said previously, if you want to continue on in this vein, I suggest you start a new thread, or this one will most definitely be shut down.

Mea culpa regarding my part in this hijack, but some of the pro-illegal blurbs and sound bites posted in this forum are just to hard to resist. But for the nonce, I will resist them in this thread.

If the use of the term "Mexicans" does not consider those definitions, its application is false...

The Flight Attendant was not Mexican...

Really? It was in response to your whole "Pro-Illegals don't decipher between illegals and legals bah!" bit. I was just showing an example of someone on your side in a similar position. I had no more intent of talking about language after that but you went on with:

Quote:
How bigotted can a person be? Expecting those who immigrate legally to be able to communicate in the lingua franca of the country in which they are now residing! Nevermind that being able to adequately comprehend and speak the language is a citizenship requirement!

Shame! For shame!
Sorry, but I'm going to respond when you are expecting them to assimilate in ways our ancestors never did, especially after the piece showing they are assimilating faster.

I hear you. Every thread turns to "but they are illegal what don't you get" or "they make me learn Spanish" after a bit of backpedaling on real issues.

For a fine example of assimilation by a Mexican-American read this blog. She was born here and yet she takes the side of illegal aliens everytime against our LE,BP and calls Americans who don't agree with her views, racists, xenophobes (well you know all those smear words that they use to demonize Americans for the rule of law). She even makes up lies in the newstories she posts to further her agenda of filling this country up with Hispanics/Mexicans via illegal immigration. I posted one of them under another topic.

This isn't a language issue either. It is about being loyal to a country and its citizens over her own country when she wasn't even born in Mexico but her ancestors were.

Spot on...

This particular thread was derailed on Page 2, anyone can review it to see where it started to go off track, and by whom...
