Rebel Staff

An Iowa kindergarten is in the news after a man started chanting “English only! USA!” after a woman on stage started introducing students in Spanish.

The chanting man was met with a chorus of boos was promptly removed from the Perry Performing Arts Center. When the man was removed audience members began cheering and the Spanish continued.

According to KCCI, many are calling the chant 'racist'.

Juan Jose Ordonez Deleon recorded a video of the incident and sent it to news outlets. He called the unknown man's actions a 'hate crime'.

The Des Moines Register reports that Superintendent M. Lynn Ubben sent an email to staff Friday  praising their “quick and appropriate response to an unfortunate disruption.”

Well, when you take in immigrants and illegals it is important to adapt to their ways in order to make them feel at home.

““If it were illegal to be stupid, there would be no Democrats, NDP or Liberal party.”
Hmmm. I wonder what American political party this gentleman votes for.

Maurice – “If it were illegal to be stupid, there would be no Democrats, NDP or Liberal party.”

Maurice, you crack me up some times. :)

Not the time or the place, to air his beef.

I have said this before and I will say it again….deciding who my friends and who my enemies are has never been a batch process…it has always been on a case by case basis.

Broadly speaking I am a supporter of Israel and a great admirer of the Jewish culture..in fact I hate to think what the world would have been like without them…God love them…apparently He does…even though they seem to be inclined to argue like an old couple…in fact that is what the word ISRAEL means (look it up) . Interestingly that is the ultimate “insult to ISLAM” which means the opposite (look it up). In the death camps when a Jew’s spirit was broken and he no longer washed shaved or looked after himself…the other Jewish prisoners called him a “moslem”.

Yet I can think of some Jews I have met who I utterly despise….I feel that was honestly acquired…lawyers, landlords, and angry Marxist intellectuals who wore Leon Trotsky style glasses and strident overbearing feminists mostly…does that make me an “anti-Semite” ?

Many times in history conflicts have been fought and “resolved” by military force that later …just seem to come back again like that patch of crab grass in the lawn. We nuked Japan in response to it’s assertion that it had greater claim to the western Pacific as it’s sphere of economic influence than the European imperial powers…we made them say “uncle”….so today what is the reality?

The same is true in the parts of the United States that were won…by fair and honourable fight…from the Spanish. Thing is unless you are utterly ruthless and commit genocide….the IDEA is not going to die.

Charging this man with a “hate crime” is absolutely absurd…but what he was hoping to achieve with his chant is also absurd by virtue of being a hopeless and unachievable goal. If the Americans were not mean enough to eradicate the Hispanic culture in that part of their domain…they are going to have to learn to live with it.

That tends to be the pattern in most places in the world where there is chronic conflict….including Israel.

Agreed. No race crime (nationality is not a race) or hate crime committed. Just a public broadcast of narrow-minded bigotry and stupidity.

“If it were illegal to be stupid, there would be no Democrats, NDP or Liberal party.” Too true.

It’s got nothing to do with “hate” crime and a lot to do with stupidity. If it were illegal to be stupid, there would be no Democrats, NDP or Liberal party. I fully support everyone’s right to be stupid, I just hope you’ll forgive me if I refuse to participate.
