"Bilingualism" is…about political power
said Peter Brimelow during VDARE.com’s first year. The concept that requiring workers to speak a second language creates a privileged group advantaged over native-born Americans is one to which we constantly return.
Now the wonderfully industrious blog A Certain Slant of Light has produced and beautifully documented another exemplifying atrocity:
Oregon has apparently furtively established a requirement to speak Spanish for senior fire fighting commanders (an important employment opportunity in rural Oregon in forest fire season).
Because of the state’s language requirement, Jaime Pickering can no longer work as a crew boss and supervise 20 firefighters. He can only manage a squad of four firefighters.
“If you have one Spanish guy on the crew, as an English crew boss, you can no longer be a crew boss. You have to step back to a squad boss, which is a demotion,” Pickering said.
A healther society would of course decline to hire non-English speaking firefighters as a danger to their colleagues.
…this sort of thing will expand… unless the president and the Congress develop the mettle to enforce the borders and insist that assimilation, rather than multi-culturalism, becomes the order of the day …Otherwise, if the rest of the country were to follow Oregon’s lead, you likely wouldn’t be able to land (or retain) a job as a hotel manager, construction superintendent, or agricultural field foreman.
With discrimination in favor of Hispanics against anglophone Americans now reaching into the Oregon woods, this is not far-fetched.
