Picture of the Week


Over the weekend during Pat Buchanan's "Building the New Majority" conference -- at which he gathered with various avowed "white nationalists" -- one of the main topics of discussion was the promotion of English-only initiatives. Buchanan and company ridiculed Judge Sonia Sotomayor for the fact that she had to learn English as a child through reading classic literature, and they claimed that without the adoption of English as the official language of the United States, President Obama would force American school children to learn Spanish. All in all, a lot of proud white-guy chest-thumping at the importance of knowing English.

Now take a close look at the spelling on the sign.

This reminds me of a comic I had up on my wall for years of two guys putting up a billboard that said, "SRCEW JAPAN, BUY AMERINAC." Same sentiment, different target.

Awesome. Awesome to the max.

Maybe they should focus on teaching kids "self-awareness" and "irony" as well as English.

Or "Gelorious!" if, you know, by virtue of your whiteness you burst from the womb with full knowledge of the glorious English language.

I can't believe they still used it - or did they just not realise?

English should be the official language of the US.

Perhaps these idiots should be first in line for refresher courses, though.
