Offended by the Spanish language

Speaking as a white person, I'm getting really tired of being represented by bigoted white people.

This faux outrage over people speaking Spanish is just dog-whistling to the TeaBaggers. Pretending to be offended by a language you cannot understand is no excuse for racism or xenophobia. Oh, and the BS about "I'm in favor of LEEEGAL immigration"? Yeah, that's bullshit. Just like we thought.

Women, Latinos, African Americans: PLEASE. Run for office. I'm not even going to care which party any more. Just run for any office that has had a white man sitting in it for the past thirty years.

Update: Stace has more.
