Just Say "NO" To a Spanish US Anthem

This is rich:

MIAMI (AP) - British music producer Adam Kidron says that when he came up with the idea of a Spanish-language version of the U.S. national anthem, he saw it as an ode to the millions of immigrants seeking a better life.

So why is he only honoring Spanish-speaking immigrants? (Let's leave the illegal part out of the argument for the moment.) What about Germans? Icelanders? Russians? Peruvians? Brazilians? Swiss? Danes? Poles? People from various African nations?

America is an amalgamation of all of the nationalities listed above and many more. To honor one group over another is just more of the PC nonsense we've come to expect these days, and it's time we put our collective foot down.

This country, as a country, was founded by English-speaking peoples, and those who immigrated here after its founding all learned to speak English. It's not always easy, but as Thomas Jefferson said, "Defend our liberties and fashion into one united people the multitudes brought hither out of many kindred and tongues."

Speak whatever at home. But speak English when dealing with other members of the public.

I suppose those whose vocabulary has to include a vulgarity when posting to a public web site probably wouldn't understand the National
Anthem. Our Anthem is about those brave Americans, nearly all immigrants (and legal), who stood up to those who would attempt to challange our freedeom and democracy. "The land of the free and the home of the brave". Where are the brave among the illegal immigrants? They sneak into the U.S. becasue they are too weak to stand up to a corrupt government. Millions of people of this country fought for and died for the freedoms in this country. I don't see these illegal immigrants from Mexico fighting for freedom. No! It's much easier steeling their freedom by sneeking across the border and breaking the laws of this country. They cry "Viva La Raza". Well, I have no respect for anyone who is too afraid to stand up and fight for what they believe. To me, they are nothing but deserters and traitors of their own country. They want respect, go home and claim your freedom. Claim your rights and be willing to die for them, like so many Americans have. And as far as steeling our National Anthem. Stand up America! Don't let them get away with it. They want a boycot. Fine. I think we can eat at Applebee's on Monday. Last time I checked, at least here in my hometown, ther weren't any non english speaking waiters, bus persons, and chef's there. Or wait, maybe Olive Garden, or even Ramono's Macaroni Grill. Believe me, it will be a long time before I eat at a Mexican resteraunt or support any Mexican establishment. Get real! There are a lot of legal high school and college kids who would gladly do those hotel and resteraunt jobs and a lot of able bodied legal immigrants who will work in the fields. In plain english, "Viva La USA".

Stan, while I do not agree that the National Anthem should be translated to Spanish, I don't see how they'll do it and keep the same concept. I think you have a few misconceptions. Those of us who have left their country to live here, did not do so as traitors. Actually, we have fought long and hard, and the U.S. interventions in our land (acts of war) have led us to immigrate to the U.S. You do recall Oliver Norton, The United Fruit Company? So, please have your meal at Apple Bees, just don't be upset when the meal takes more the an hour to be cooked, or the plates for the previous party have not yet been picked up. Or even worse, the apple bees is closed due to lack of staff.

Brian,

Please don't give me that drudge about the U.S. Invasions and so-called acts of war having anything to do with this issue. Illegal immigrants, whether from Mexico or any other country come here because of selfish reasons. They do not come here to better their own country, rather, themselves and their families here and those still back home. Mexico is a beautiful country, in some cases even more beautiful than the United States. It has the same potential as the US to prosper and be a leading cultural and economical powerhouse. But it is being driven by a government of greed and corruption. Mexico's problems are 90% internal and have nothing to do with the U.S. or any other foreign government. Mexicans can and should stand up and take back Mexico if they want what we have here in the U.S. It is there for the taking. If the 30 million Mexicans living here illegally would go back to Mexico and declare war on corruption they would have a country to be proud of rather than to run from.

As far as Applebee's is concerned; no problem waiting, I'll have a couple American Beers and enjoy my favorite sports in ENGLISH!!!I'm sure it will be delicious!

A British dude contriving a version of the US national anthem in Spanish: can you say self-serving publicity stunt?

Posted by: at April 30, 2006 10:56 PM

THE US FLAG UPSIDE DOWN?

THE MEXICAN FLAG ON TOP OF OURS?

THE NATIONAL ANTHEM TRANSLATED TO SPANISH?

WHAT A BLASPHEMY!

Illegals have no respect for anybody, they bite the hand that feeds them for free such as:

THE WIC PROGRAM FOR CHILDREN
THE WELFARE HELP THEY GET
MEDICAL
FOOD STAMPS
MONETARY COMPENSATIONS FOR HAVING ALL THOSE CHILDREN
SSI
SSA
UNEMPLOYMENT

Such ungratefulness make me want to vomit!

Amen Stan. I'm with you on this one.

Posted by: canuck at May 1, 2006 09:10 PM

I just wanted to mention that in order to be a Mexican citizen (according to their constitution) your parents have to be Mexican as well as you being born in Mexico. Why is it that they can come here and have kids that become citizens while they us up benefits that WE have to pay for?

Something is really wrong here.
