The Star-Spangled Banner - "ENGLISH ONLY, BIATCH!"

Man, I cannot help but applause the freedom raving American government and its legion of minions. Some might question this praise, but I’ll dismiss all rhetoric by stating that I am being sarcastic; the following is rather sad, but whatever.

Now, I hear that Americans and their government -- largely -- are against the whole concept of the American national anthem, being sung in Spanish. Who shoved a stick up these conservative asses isn’t my concern; they can butt-fuck themselves with stuck-up views, all the way.
Many are declaring that the anthem should only be sung in English; this is now becoming a proposed resolution for all pro-American elements of speech. What the fuck, man? So where’s all that freedom of speech that certain fucktards were ranting on about? It’s not like the anthem is even an insult - it’s only being sung in another language! Does Spanish really offend these moochers that much? Did some Spanish horde, rape their mothers or something?

What do the apologists have to say? Not much, really; their primary defence is the time-old mantra of people learning to embrace the national language, which is another issue. Hell, my real and only language is American English, and I get irritated with morons who can’t communicate in the language. However, does this have anything to do with someone exercising the free choice to sing praises about a country in non-national language? No, it really doesn’t. Allowing an anthem of a non-national-linguistic medium, will not encourage people to start or stop learning English; this is just bothering certain conservatives because their frail egos are vested into such superficial protocol.

“What, so are you freedom monkeys gonna’ take away the freedom of speech by banning people from reading the pledge of allegiance, or singing the national anthem in another language? So then, you’ll effectively dictate how and what they should be saying and doing? And not dictate through general cultural norms, but rather, through stringent resolutions. I can accept that when you live in a country, you have to get by through learning the national language, and that’s another issue. Banning people from singing the national anthem in any language of choice, is just downright suppression of expression, and a very sombre expression, mind you!” - Immediate contention.

Conclusively, I’d like to ask some of these ‘conservatives’ a very straightforward question. Answer me this, monkeys: Do you think this line of thinking is going to encourage English speaking amongst the immigrants? I know tons of twits who can’t speak one sentence of English straight, but know how to recite the American anthem and pledge of allegiance, in English, by their fuckin’ deceptive hearts, without any erratic inflections in the given recitation. Meanwhile, also try to ponder the following: What do you think this will say about your so-called ‘freedom to express’? You’re effectively banning people from using certain speech and verses in another language; you’re further smearing that whole concept of freedom of expression into a bigger cosmetic disaster than its present state. All in all, I can tell you fuckers one thing; this is not going to get immigrants to learn English, and of course, this will also thwart American tenet of freedom into another all-time low; not to mention - all the fun that international media will have, exploiting such naggings of superficiality.

This is just pathetic; we have real problems in this world, meanwhile, a certain group of morons is whining about regulating and restricting the fuckin’ language medium for reciting the American anthem… what the fuck gives, man?

“This is the land of the free, where you can’t make any patriotic declaration in any other language, other than English.”

“This is the great liberty haven, where speaking against the president is equal to speaking against the entire country. Oh, and not to mention, dissent could very well get you into trouble! So much freedom! Oh yeah!”

“You only get unconditional freedom to blindly obey and follow like a fuckin’ a drone! Yes, you’re free to play the fuckin’ drone!”

I have nothing against the idea of encouraging immigrants to learn English! However, imposing boundaries on expressing the anthem in a given language is really doing little to encourage English speaking. On the other hand, the same logic is certainly creating a dichotomy between those so-called rights to express. It’s the anthem in a foreign language, and it isn’t even an insult when viewed outside an uptight myopia; I think it wouldn’t hurt to look past this issue. This whole idea of encouraging English is a mere ploy for the apologists to defend their personal myopias over variety and culture. Forcing people to sing the anthem in English is going to do very little in terms of invoking the desire to learn English; I know a handful of non-English speaking Spanish who can recite the authentic American national anthem through mere memorisation of the phonetics. Meanwhile, I have to put up with nimrods, imposing a select medium of language in the name of 'encouraging' immigrants to embrace english. It's a pitiful excuse by a bunch of sexually frustrated apologists, and their poorly misguided drones! This has just reached a new level of trivial stupidity.

"It's like the friggin' anthem in another language! Don't these people have like, some real serious shit to be fretting about? You know, real matters of concern! No, instead these apologists decide to get dramatic over the fuckin' language medium of an anthem in the so-called land of the free; and their excuse: to encourage immigrants to take up english. Please, someone, get these morons a fuckin' newspaper!" - Closure.

So until next time, stay cool, and focus on the bigger picture, fuckers.
