The New Majority Eschews Spell Check

"Spelling? ... What spelling? ... We don't have to show you no spelling ... We don't have to show you no stinking spelling! ..."

Apologies to B.Traven, for hijacking his prose, but we got ourselves some similar nasty bandits running around.

I guess, if you are Pat Buchanan, and you are going to start a New Majority, a new, English-Only Super Race, who has time for Spell Check.

It is, after all, a mandate for "English-Only", not, necessarily, correct English, or correctly spoken, and spelled, English.

Grunting, and hand-gestures (English language, of course) is just as good.


That's for those non-white, arugula-eating lefties ...

The new Uber-Majority isn't going to play that game ...

Under Misspelled Banner, Buchanan And White Nationalist Brimelow Argue For English-Only Initiatives

On Saturday, Pat Buchanan hosted a conference to discuss how Republicans can regain a majority in America. During one discussion, panelists suggested supporting English-only initiatives as a prime way of attracting “working class white Democrats.” The discussion ridiculed Judge Sotomayor for the fact that she studied children’s classics to improve her grammar while attending college. The panelists also suggested that, without English as the official language, President Obama would force Americans to speak Spanish.

One salient feature of the event was the banner hanging over the English-only advocates. The word conference was spelled “Conferenece."

Melissa McEwan labeled it, simply as "In Shit You Can't Make Up", while Andrew Sullivan suggested it is a "Malkin Award Nominee".

Kos, added a P.S. to his post, that was most wry;
p.s. When we're talking Spanish, yes, we're talking about you.
Maybe now, the MSNBC suits can sit down and provide an answer to MediaMatters (MSNBC's continued embrace of Pat Buchanan shows it still hasn't learned from Savage, Imus, Matthews fiascoes)

Meanwhile, someone send Buchanan, and his Uber-band of racist xenophobes, the Talking Words Factory™ DVD
