(SL) – Sarah Palin is confusing at times. In one breath she praises one’s ability to speak multiple languages, but in the next breath she’s advising immigrants to speak English when in America. Comprehension of diverse languages is great if your’re someone else. But when you’re talking to Sarah, speak English!
Ms. Palin, certainly realizes that some of these immigrants would have to ‘learn’ English, Maybe we should ‘learn’ Spanish as well. It will only increase the intelligence of American children. In certain parts of Japan, the English Language is as much a part of the curriculum as the Japanese language, math, science, etc. Curiosity prompts the question…Does Sara Palin speak Spanish when she is traveling through Spanish speaking countries and territories?
Yes, the Sarah Palin train is back as she weighs in on the latest 2016 Presidential happenings and declares her interest in working with Donald Trump, possibly as his energy secretary. And what better way to pledge support for Donald Trump than by supporting his views on Immigration and the idea that Immigrants should speak English in America.
Sarah Palin on immigrants: ‘When you’re here, let’s speak American’
“I think we can send a message and say, ‘You want to be in America? A. You better be here legally or you’re out of here. B. When you’re here, let’s speak American,’” Palin told CNN’s Jake Tapper in an interview that aired on “State of the Union” Sunday. “I mean, that’s just — let’s speak English and that’s kind of a unifying aspect of a nation — the language that is understood by all.”
Palin’s comments were in response to the dust up between Republican presidential hopefuls Jeb Bush and Donald Trump after Trump suggested candidates not speak Spanish while on the campaign trail. Bush, who speaks Spanish, called Trump intolerant.
Surprisingly, after typical Palin jargon, she praised Bush’s diversity and ability to communicate directly to the Latin population,
“I don’t know what choosing to speak English or Spanish in a conversation, what that would have to do — somebody opposing it — with tolerance or not,” Palin continued. “I think it’s a benefit of Jeb Bush to be able to be so fluent in Spanish because we have a large and wonderful Hispanic population that is helping to build America, and that’s good, and that’s a great relationship and connection that he has with them through his wife and through his family connections.”
Trump is the current front runner in the race for the 2016 GOP nomination. He has said openly that he would consider Palin for a post in his administration.
Palin isn’t new to the rodeo. The former Governor of Alaska and the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee says the position of energy secretary in Trump’s cabinet could catch her attention.
“I think a lot about the Department of Energy, because energy is my baby,” Palin said. “Oil and gas and minerals, those things that God has dumped on this part of the Earth for mankind’s use instead of us relying on unfriendly foreign nations.”
That’s a lot of considering.
Palin’s sasy her first recommendation as head of the federal energy department would be to get rid of it. Palin says, “I’d get rid of it and I’d let the states start having more control over the lands that are within their boundaries and the people who are affected by the developments within their states. If I were in charge of that, it would be a short-term job,” Palin added. “But it would be really great to have someone who knows energy and is pro-responsible development to be in charge.”
Palin also took time out to criticize President Obama’s recent trip to Alaska.
