Rep. Diaz-Balart (R-FL) speaks Spanish at Tea Party rally and is heckled “learn English!”

This will be a quick, but awful, vignette.  And it’s why the Republican party may never recover from the disaster that it brought on itself by embracing so much extremism, hatred and intolerance.

Buried in a story about immigration reform and the Tea  Party is this little gem:

Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, a Florida Republican working on a House immigration bill, spoke briefly in Spanish and was heckled by one of the Tea Party protestors who yelled “learn English!”

This, comes on the heels of the embarrassing vitriol that met young Mexican-American Sebastien De La Cruz, a San Antonio native whose father fought in the US military, when he sung the National Anthem last week at the NBA finals:

Do I know they were Republicans, no. But you do the math.

GOP Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), who’s having his own “diversity” problem with the Republican faithful, recently said that the Republican party needed immigration reform to pass in order to avoid a “demographic death spiral” by which the Republican party forever loses the Latino vote, and thus forever loses the White House.

That death spiral began the day the Republican party embraced the haters in the religious right, and it only got worse when the GOP created and embraced the Tea Party.  Good luck making things better now.

    Wow! That is some straight-up racism. It’s good to know where you’re really coming from. You have nothing of value to add to the discussion.

  • Dakotahgeo

    I’ve traveled in many countries in Europe and South and am embarrassed to tears at how “some” US citizens act and denigrate the native citizens! I have never encountered a rude native citizen who could not understand me. They were ALWAYS polite and patient with me until we finally, laughingly, figured out what I needed/wanted. We should all learn to be so humble, DON!!

    Heh heh heh… silly, negative comments don’t have too much effect on me, considering I will have a few friends becoming citizens when the immigration law passes. And it will pass! Not a whole lot will stop it. The Republicans are in a barrel and people are shooting at them… the whole scene is kind of hilarious.

  • Dakotahgeo

    Ohhhhhhh, I tell ya!!! I grew up on a farm in North Dakota, next to the sugar beet region in W Central MN. Heck, we always had Mexican families living next to our farms! Damn, they worked hard, and as a little kid I cried when they left because my playmates left. There have always been Hispanics/Latinos in my life. Even in Kansas City Metro, I “adopted” a young Honduran man, barely over 21. I laugh because he walked into our church after services and I think he knew 3 English words. I didn’t care! Long story short, he lived with me for two years, learned English at Don Bosco, worked TWO jobs, met the girl of his dreams (from Mexico), they married, moved to Mexico where they now both teach, he in college, she as a Special Ed teacher. He was and still is my hijo siempre, I guess he still calls me Papa, lolol. When he left, he spoke better English than I did. I spent a year in Brazil and Paraguay teaching English. If I were younger I would go back there in a heartbeat, and settle in Brazil. So yes, I can well imagine you would miss your Mom’s voice. That happens to sons and daughters! :-)

    Even though your ass is outa here, I can’t resist! Most Americans are so lazy they can’t even master English, much less any other language. MOST non-Americans are so fluent in their own language that they master 1-2 MORE languages just for warm-ups. I am the Spelling and Grammar Police and I cannot believe the mistakes Americans make! It’s embarrassing! What’s more, American young people aren’t interested in the “easy” languages any more… they’re tackling the biggies, like Japanese and Chinese. So you just speak the little English you know. I’m sure all other nationals will come to your aid… Doofus!
    PS: I speak English, German, Spanish, and some Portugues. Yes Portugues is spelled that way in Brazil/Portugal. ONLY the Americans spell it, “PortuguesE.”

    Not just that, but 100 years ago was just after a massive wave of immigration, and virtually every city in the United States had Polish, German, Yiddish, Greek and other non-English-language daily newspapers.

    Some of those papers still exist, now usually as weeklies or bi-monthlies, and there are many anti-immigrant bigots with babcias and yia yias who still speak the old language.

    But that was DIFFERENT.

  • Naja pallida

    You’re talking to a brick wall. Someone who has already made up their mind. There are many perfectly valid reasons for supporting an English requirement in the immigration bill, and though I haven’t looked up the polling on it, I’d be willing to bet most people, including myself, agree that new immigrants should have some manner of English proficiency. This guy is just a racist, and even if every Hispanic person he ever bumped into spoke to him in perfect English, it wouldn’t matter. Once someone is at the point of referring to a whole, diverse, group of people as “third world trash”, I’m afraid there isn’t much discussion left to be had.

  • http://adgitadiaries.com/ karmanot

    That’s not surprising. I can’t imagine any decent latino(a) coming within a mile of you. Probably because you are an LA cop.

  • Naja pallida

    Even Fox Noise polling, which can be easily looked up with a single Google search, found that over 70% of the people they polled want a pathway to citizenship for current undocumented persons… and that number has been relatively steady within the margin of error for some time. And these are the people who were reporting in their polls that Mitt Romney was going to win in a landslide. But, I’m sure, they’re just in on the conspiracy with the Hispanic Caucus to make racists look bad. Even though other polling companies, on the left and the right, have similar figures. Reality is a pesky thing, and lucky for you that you are in a country where you can rant about it until you’re blue in the face. Still doesn’t make reality bend to your racist will.

    If you can’t speak English is a English speaking society, then yu’re at a disadvantage, unless your in East LA or parts of Miami.. Otherwise, you walk away looking like a fool, kind of like you.

  • DonMann

    Look Clown, since you can’t even comprehend simple English.. Let’s go thru this again. I agree with the 71%, but as I wrote above, that’s 71% of 14%, and that 14% includes their illegal family members as counted by the U.S. census. I said nothing about illegal aliens voting!! WISE up!!

    No idiot if they are here illegally they can’t vote, if they are not citizens they can’t vote. Why don’t you take that little brain of yours and read the voting regulations.

  • lynchie

    My point cement head is that if you know more than one language you are better able to find a better paying job. But in the end it doesn’t matter if you are bilingual. The little brown people will out number you and your vote will be neutered. Live in the 19th century, where by the way Italians, germans, polish, irish, etc., etc,, came to this country and brought their language with them. The Latinos in this country speak very good english so they are better equipped to get a job than you. You and the GOP are like the T-rex, little arms so you can’t play with your dicks and little brains to match.

  • DonMann

    I guess if you poll Univision you would be right..Otherwise your wrong!! The majority of American DO NOT want any for, of amnesty for the law breaking invaders.. Why would we?? WE OWE them NOTHING!!

  • DonMann

    A little far reaching aren’t you! LOL!!

  • CSStrowbridge

    “The American people do not want amnesty!!”

    If you poll Americans about a “pathway to citizenship” it will get majority approval.

  • DonMann

    I share your frustration with people who can’t seem to be bothered to make the effort to learn the local language. I have the same impatience with American tourists who can’t even be bothered to learn to say hello, goodby, please, thank you and excuse me in the language of the country they are visiting. it’s the same laziness and entitlement. I’m patient with people who are trying. With people who don’t even want to try, I have none.

  • DonMann

    He’s the one that helped write this treasonous bill and now he has to deal with the consequences.. The American people do not want amnesty!! WE want the laws enforced and the invasion stopped!! He made the choice to go the other way, so let him go.

  • Peter

    What an ignorant comment. Only in the US would being fluent in multiple languages be considered a bad thing. Reminds me of my many years living in Europe and watching and listening to Americans berate the natives for not speaking English.

  • DonMann

    Same difference!! That’s like the kettle calling the skillet black!!

  • DonMann

    While I commend your patience, living here in Southern California, I see a sense of entitlement. I’ve seen first hand some guy from Mexico get upset in a business because he couldn’t speak English and was yelling at the clerk because they didn’t have an interpreter for him. I personally know some illegal aliens that have been here for over twenty years and can’t speak a lick of English..

  • Naja pallida

    Still beats laying down with la racist.

  • http://parkandbark.wordpress.com/ Houndentenor

    When I lived in NYC almost every day I saw multiple people with workbooks studying for their English class. When asked I always helped. (Multiple countries of origins and original languages, btw.) English is hard, but rather than complaining that people haven’t learned English, it’s more productive to offer help. I am patient as I lived in Germany for six months with far less than fluent German. many people were patient with me as I struggled (and made countless grammatical errors). I like to pay those favors forward. I think often people who aren’t yet fluent in English are reluctant to try because of the attitude they get when they make mistakes or can’t find the right word. I’d rather help them improve than chastise them for not being up to speed. it’s a process and harder than people who have never functioned in another language seem to realize.

  • Naja pallida

    Thank you for illustrating my point so clearly.

  • judybrowni

    The “lesser of two evils” is still less evil.

    Yes, definitely cite a quote from nearly one hundred years ago to make your point. It’s so, last century.

    “Allowing anyone who can push a button to vote,” is called Democracy, ya know.

    And “The American Way.”

    However, “suppressing the vote” is known as the Republican Way, and the only way they can win elections anymore.

    Hey Lynchie, if you’re going to use the numbers, use them in the proper context. That’s 71% of 14%, that 14% includes their illegal family members.

  • DonMann

    The U.S. isn’t Mexico and English is the primary language spoken here.. Why would an American allow 14% of the population, including their illegal family members to dictate anything here.. That;s like me going to a Mexican convention where they only speak Spanish and start speaking English.. WISE UP!!

  • Lynn Roland

    “Any man who says he is an American but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any flag of a nation to which we are hostile. We have room for but one language here, and that is the ENGLISH language…and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.” Theodore Roosevelt in a letter to the American Defense Society in 1919.

  • lynchie

    Canada is a bilingual country and as such all schools teach French and English. I grew up speaking both languages and now speak 5 fluently and it has helped me tremendously in my life. Condemning someone for speaking Spanish when there are so many Latinos in America is stupid. Another example of people totally unwilling to change, of being brought up blaming others for their inability to adapt and learn. It means their days are numbered, white only people will be marginalized and disappear.

  • Hue-Man

    American Exceptionalism! Recent proposed legislation in Canada would require that 10 officers of Parliament be bilingual. “Those would include the auditor general, the chief electoral officer, the commissioner of official languages, the privacy commissioner, the information commissioner, the senate ethics officer, the conflict of interest and ethics commissioner, the commissioner of lobbying, the public sector integrity commissioner, and the president of the public service commission.” http://o.canada.com/2013/06/12/ndp-bilingualism-bill-for-parliament-watchdogs-getting-green-light/

    And: “Mandarin language courses are mandatory at [private school] Mulgrave School in West Vancouver, where tuition for a high school student is approximately $19,000 per year. Head of school John Wray says the Mandarin courses help its students prepare to work in an international setting. “I think the chances of our children being successful and more engaged in our international community learning Chinese is really important,” he said.” http://bc.ctvnews.ca/parents-turning-to-private-schools-for-posh-programs-1.1320029

    Only someone who has never learned another language would criticize a politician for being fluent in Spanish (or any other language), particularly a native speaker (I’m guessing from his name).

  • SkippyFlipjack

    I don’t think it’s the language thing per se (although some people do seem proud of the lack of knowledge); I think it’s Spanish specifically, because they’re terrified of being minorities in their own country and see the influx of Latinos as an invasion. It’s like the hatred for “Press 1 for English” — people see it as a sign that they’re being marginalized by the spanish-speaking hordes.

  • SkippyFlipjack

    Sounds like something out of a Gabriel Garcia Marquez or Kurt Vonnegut novel — a political group spends years trying to appeal to a bunch of people who all hate someone, and end up looking around at their bitter, isolated clump of people who all hate each other.

    Who knows. I’d say that laziness is the chief reason. But nobody likes to think of themselves as lazy so the racism and xenophobia come in as excuses for the laziness.

    Phew. I simply cannot comprehend a mind that takes pride in not knowing things. I can understand dismissing some area of knowledge as unimportant or impractical or simply too difficult to bother with. But claiming that you’re actually a better person because you don’t know something? How does that make any sense?

  • Naja pallida

    All of the above?

    Can’t happen soon enough, IMHO. Of course, we’ll still need two parties (at least!). So, the Democrats can become the right-wingers (like they want to…), and a true Progressive party can arise.

  • http://parkandbark.wordpress.com/ Houndentenor

    In that case they should run the audio of W giving the weekly radio address in English and Spanish.

    Obviously, Marco Rubio’s State of the Union response should have been before a live studio audience of Tealiban. Just so we could gauge an appropriate reaction. I so want to see these racists trying to figure out a way to vote for Marco Rubio in the next Republican Presidential campaign. Any ad against him should just be a clip of him speaking Spanish with ominous music in the background.
