Sarah Palin Says We Should all Speak “American”

That font of wisdom and hilarious sound bites, Sarah Palin, has jumped on the anti-immigration bandwagon being led by her BFF Donald Trump and said everyone should speak “American. Although she isn’t running for president, she might be jockeying for the VP nod again. Or not and she just likes to hear herself talk. Either way it’s a profoundly stupid thing to say. It all started last week when presidential nominee and daddy’s little champ Jeb Bush made a speech in Spanish to a group of Latino voters. Trump immediately jumped up on his xenophobic soap box and criticized Bush saying that the candidates should only speak English on the campaign trail because English is America’s official language, (it’s not). Palin agreed and said,

“It’s a benefit of Bush to be able to be so fluent, because we have a large and wonderful Hispanic population that’s helping to build America, and that’s a great relationship and connection he has with them. On the other hand, I think we can send a message and say, ‘You want to be in America, A, you’d better be here legally or you’re out of here. B, when you’re here, let’s speak American.”

I believe English is the word you are looking for. But it’s not a surprise seeing as Palin can barely speak the language herself. Why is it always those people with the least English skills that are so adamant about people speaking English…er…I mean American? Look at me. I didn’t speak English until I was five years old and today I am a professional writer in what is my second language. Palin can’t even master her first. English is her first language, right?  I know she’s a bear mom from Alaska or whatever and that her first words were probably growls and snarls.
