‘You want to be in America, speak American,’ Sarah Palin tells immigrants


Another slam-dunk for American politics was offered up courtesy of master diplomat Sarah Palin. The Alaska governor praised opponent Jeb Bush for his Spanish skills, but confessed she’d rather the general population “speak American.”

One could be forgiving for wondering if such things are actually a PR move, as there’s no shortage of wacky comments coming from the Republican side, with presidential candidates all seemingly vying for the spot of top doofus.  

Look out, Donald Trump  – your Mexican wall may no longer be enough!

“It’s a benefit of [former Florida governor] Bush to be able to be so fluent, because we have a large and wonderful Hispanic population building America, and that’s a great connection he has with them,” she told CNN in an interview that aired Sunday on ‘State of the Union.’

“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, [and] B, when you’re here, let’s speak American… Let’s speak English, and that’s a kind of a unifying aspect of the nation is the language that is understood by all.”

Trump himself castigated Bush recently for using Spanish when asked a question in the language.

Palin is, of course, no stranger to linguistic mishaps or intriguing claims on a variety of subjects. Knowledge of geography, the location of Alaska vis-à-vis Russia, and Africa (the country) are among some of the people’s favorites.

But the political arena is where Governor Palin’s passions really lie. She can be credited with teaching us that North Korea is a US ally. Or the time she declared: “If I were in charge… they would know that waterboarding is how we baptise terrorists!” She has, on several occasions, demonstrated her knowledge of the Syrian war and “all these Islamic countries.”

One can only hope that the nitty-gritty of politics will continue to be enlivened by Miss Palin’s presence.

  1. I appreciate her choice of words, even if they were accidental, because she didn’t make the mistake of claiming that Americans speak English.

  2. Speak American??

    Central American?
    South American?
    Blue Hills American?
    ‘merican American?
    Gangster American?

    Often this lady comes across as ‘less than smart’.

  3. Tell me how long have “We the People” been saying this. Caribou Barbie say it and it is all over the MSM. This bitch should go back to AK and stay there and keep her fat mouth shut.

  4. Palin may be easy on the eyes, but she’s certifiably retarded. Even worse, she’s an Israel loyalist and an all-around traitor to the Bill of Rights. Being a fan of torture makes her particularly vile. Her superficial attractiveness can’t conceal the revolting ugliness inside her.

    Ron Paul was the last chance this country had for a good leader. But even he, had he been elected president, probably wouldn’t have been able to fix this country. The political system is too corrupt, the Deep State is too entrenched, and the general population is too stupid.

    The only candidates (from either mainstream party) who have a chance of making it onto a ballot in a major election are those who have demonstrated their loyalty to the ruling establishment. The federal media sees to this.

    The opportunity to restore constitutional, just, and accountable government by voting passed us all by a long, long time ago.

    1. I don’t know what the hell your talking about with your “Ron Paul was the last chance this country had for a good leader.” WTF?????????????? He’s a god-damned card carrying communist, socialist, worst enemy we have, and you throw in your endorsement for that son of a bitch on this site? Again, WTF?
