Seems like they are already being treated like indentured servants.

Sounds to me as if your idol Nugent has threatened mass murder. I'm not surprised you would promote his beliefs here on C-D.

He has 1st amendment right to say what he wants even though I don't agree with everything he says.

Nobody has a right to advocate mass murder, as Nugent has.

Nugent is a racist, demonstrated by his remarks you've reprinted ... regarding Spanish-language materials. Where I live government announcements/election materials, etc., are printed in 5 languages. It's similar in many other parts of the country. Multiple languages. I don't understand where this hatred for people who aren't white and who don't speak English fluently comes from. Well, it comes from racism.

If you disagree with his racist and mass-murder advocations ... you should say that, lest people read your remarks, and others, and think you believe similarly.

First off I don't advocate for violence against anyone so I do not concur with what Nugent said. As for languages in this country no one is saying they can't be spoken just a time and place for it. It costs us a lot of tax dollars to print all kinds of documents in serveral different languages therefore I oppose that along with the fact that it does nothing to encourage assimilation to our national language. What's with this hatred BS? What does skin color have to do with anything? There is nothing racist about desiring immigrants to learn our national language. I don't even care if they don't speak it real well or even with an accent. What is important is that they learn it to the best of their ability and if they are unable to do that then they should hire an interpreter to read documents printed in English or any other scenario where they can't understand English. Keep racism and skin color out of this. It is ridiculous!

Nugent's comments which appear at the top of this discussion are clearly racist/ethnically prejudiced in content, and I believe intent. He singles-out only one group of illegal aliens. You have a problem with racism as expressed by Mr. Nugent and reprinted here in this discussion being talked about? Fine. Then send a letter to Mr. Nugent. Tell him "it is ridiculous!" I agree.

Not defending Nugent's remarks, but he resides in Texas where the overwhelming majority of illegals are Hispanic, mainly from Mexico. So it's not weird at all for a Texan to associate illegal immigrants with being Hispanic and Spanish-speaking.

Just puttin' that out there.

I asked you to stop using racism and skin color in regards to language usage in this country then you turn around and attack his remarks? What makes you different than him then? You generalized that objection to immigrants not learning English and printing documents in several different languages was race/skin color based. People living in glass houses shouldn't throw stones or that makes them hypocrites.

Not only that but anyone who dares point of the "fact" that most illegals here are Hispanic is labeled as being racist for doing so. It gets tiresome after awhile. Facts are racist and yet we still acknowledge that not all illegals are Hispanic and that we want them all gone from our country?

Nugents remarkes were broad-based, not limited to Texas, and his mass-murder advocacy marks him not only as a racist, but a lunatic.
