From: “Robert Taft”

In his book on Canadian politics,


The Patriot Game
,
Peter Brimelow exposed for the
first time to an English Canadian mass media audience
that the original

French words
to the Canadian national anthem, "Oh
Canada", called for a Quebec Catholic

conquest
. Most English Canadians had assumed that
the French version was a literal translation of the
vapid

English text
.

Similar divergences apparently are
not uncommon in political candidates` foreign language
literature and websites. For the most part, they go
unnoticed because English is the only language
understood by the preponderance of native Americans and
properly eligible voters.

For example, the Spanish language
webpage of Rep. Connie Morella (R-MD)

bluntly panders
to Hispanics: "Se opone a las
propuestas que declaran el inglis como lengua oficial, y
ella apoya fuertamente los programas bilingues."
[Translation: She opposes the proposals that declare
English as the Official Language, and she strongly
supports bilingual programs
.]

In contrast, Congresswoman
Morella`s issues webpage for gullible Americans who
can`t read Spanish declares:

"Connie knows that
education, especially in the English language, is a
pivotal quality of life issue for those immigrants new
to the United States."

Her

English webpage
conveniently fails to mention that
she opposes Official English and supports subsidized
bilingualism.

For this and numerous other reasons, Rep. Morella has
been named Enemy Number One in the Gallery of Republican
Traitors on my Write-In Tancredo
website, which encourages immigration opponents to protest by
writing in Tom Tancredo in all
contested House and Senate elections unless a candidate
signs the

Oath Against Mass Immigration
.
