Newt Gingrich: Spanish “The Language Of Living In A Ghetto”

Current presidential frontrunner Newt Gingrich seems to think that Spanish and bilingual education are the characteristics of people living in “the ghetto,” at least he did, who knows how he will now explain away comments he made in 2008 to the National Federation of Republican Women. Here, let him speak for himself:

“The American people believe English should be the official language of the government. … We should replace bilingual education with immersion in English so people learn the common language of the country and they learn the language of prosperity, not the language of living in a ghetto…”

At the speech Gingrich also bashed the printing of ballots in other languages, you know, the Voting Rights Act? So, what do you think?
