-On January 20, 2021,
we’ll say adiós to Donald Trump. -For many years, we in
the United States have debated whether to establish
an official language. On Wednesday night, various Democratic presidential
candidates ended that debate. -Every voter
needs representation. And every voice needs
to be listened to. -My name is Julian Castro, and I am running for President
of the United States. The very fact that I can say
that tonight shows the progress that we have made
in this country. -Welcome, America, to the 2020
immigration debate, Democratic style. I am Erik Wemple, journalist
in the Opinions section of the Washington Post
covering the media. If you didn’t know
that Cory Booker, New Jersey senator
and presidential candidates, could express a talking point
in Spanish, well, then have a listen. -The situation right now
is unacceptable. The president has attacked
and demonized immigrants. It’s unacceptable. I’m going to change this. -Why did we see an outbreak
of Spanish in a presidential debate
for the first time in history? Two reasons. One, the Latino population is
critical for Democratic candidates in this election,
and, in fact, all of them. And the second factor
is Telemundo, one of the hosts of the debate
along with NBC News and MSNBC, the US cable channel. Telemundo reaches millions
of Latinos in this country each night. And one of its hosts
is Jose Diaz-Balart, who asked a dramatic question
in the debate. -Congressman O’Rourke,
what would you do Day One if you were president about
the reality we are living in? -We are going to treat
every person with the respect and dignity
they deserve as humans. -The campaigns are trying
to create a glorious moment in a debate, but what happened was a cultural
moment for the whole country. A corporate conglomerate created
a moment for Spanish in a presidential debate,
which has never happened before.

    What a sad day in America. It is clear now, Donald J. Trump, will be re elected in 2020 for President of the United States of America, truly the most worthy to lead this country forward. Re Elect President TRUMP 2020! This was a great comedy show!

  • Randy Mont-Reynaud Post author

    Hats off to Beto, anyway. And now, let’s come together, build bridges not walls and wake up to the reality: Spanish is important, and all lives matter…and so do all votes! But again no this: it’s not about winning those hearts and minds it’s the electoral college, people! You’ve got a win those states, and I say, by all means – that is or means short of hiring the Russians

    I'm very nervous about any American politician that speaks Spanish. They'll be the ones that tear down the wall and open the southern border to all Mexicans who want to takeover our country. BTW the Washington Post is owned by the Unification Church and Editor in Chief is Rev. Sun Young Moon. From what I remember from my encounters with the Moonies in the 80's, they're all like your typical misfits with very low intelligence and can't think for themselves.

    Democrats have completely lost it just like many left wing parties here in western Europe. They destroyed England, Sweden, Germany, France etc. etc. with their policies and their immigration disaster, rape, knife and acid attacks are things we see every day multiple times. Muslims are destroying our beautiful Europe and our politicians don't care!

  • Gaithe Alwahab Post author

    If they think this will win the Hispanics they are wrong. And even if they do they will lose everyone else the arabs will want them to speak arabic, the Nigerian will want them to speak Nigerian and so will everyone else. This is the most efficient way to divide a country

    It was incredibly stupid and transparent what they were doing and a real news organization would call them out for it instead of acting like it was some major culture shift.

    Less Spanish. More English. Spanish is not the language of anything. English is the international language of business.
