It's not like they can make that song suck any worse than it does already.

The beaners are really trying to win over Anglo-American sentiment. Keep it up and all of you will get the boot.

How about a Farsi translation of the Star Spangled banner? Maybe we should leave the song alone, as it is now.

Someone mentioned something way up there ^^ that got me thinking this is a good thing.

Step One: Make an alternate language National Anthem which is sung at sporting events.

Step Two: Someone runs a stop sign and kills children in a crosswalk.

Step Three: That 'someone' wins a defensive argument stating that they cannot understand English, and the road sign was in English, so they get off with no penalty.

Step Four: The country realizes that it would be impossible to put up road signs in every language, so a national language is adopted.

Step Five: We all learn Spanish?

It is perfectly natural for a group that is oppressed or being threated with oppression, regardless of the cause or measure of such, to rally together through an identification of a common threat. Unfortunately, in order for such confrontation or movement to be successful, there needs to be a clear understanding of the goals.

If immigrants, illegal or not, were striving for maintaining the status quo, parading around on national TV with Mexican flags in downtown Chicago is not the best way to do it as it effectively creates a counter-movement. This general strike, or whatever they are calling it, will only serve to further agitate a group that would have otherwise remain content watching from the sidelines.

Personally, I have no problem with people coming into this country. We are all members of humanity and thus entitled and expected to do what is best for ourselves and our family regardless of arbitrary land borders set centuries ago.

With that said, I will say that I am against anybody coming into my country and then to parade around the flag of their homeland in an attempt to swap a legislative process in mine.

To those people that come into this country to build a better life and future for themselves and their family, to work 12 hour days for below minimum wage, no social security , I welcome you as you show a more honest work ethic than the capitalist CEO with the golden parachute.

For those that come into this country to claim it as their own and then parade around during a "strike" in a vain attempt to create an economic impact, I say we have enough assholes in this country already. Go back home while I go build a fence.

Does anyone not think there would be strong opposition if 12 million Americans illegally went down to Mexico and tried to change things there???? "Hey, why don't you print signs in English as well as Spanish"? "Hey, you don't mind if we fly the American flag in our low-riders along with the dingle balls, do you"? "Hey, we haven't paid any taxes since we've been here illegally, but can we maybe get some free health care"? Widen the Rio Grande, fill it with alligators, and ship the whole crowd that shows up on Monday back to Taco land!!!!
 
2006-04-28 01:40:41 PM  
Oh yeah... and you can pound this Spanish national anthem up your farking ass.

They are all SPANISH. Why? Because the People that settled those regions (after the indians who just get screwed in these discussions of course) spoke Spanish So why, when the settlers in their Conestooga wagons came rolling into the regions wasn't it THEIR job as farking immigrants to learn SPANISH rather than vice versa?

Better weapons.

BTW, you said Spanish & Indians, & you are quite correct. Mexicans didn't originate there. Funny what some of them claim as their "homeland", belonged to indigenous American tribes.

Meh.

What ever happened to "When in Rome, do as the Romans"?

Just meh.

English translation from Spanish version of "The Star Spangled Banner:"

Look -- over there.
It is the sun rising.
Hello Mr. Sun!
Let's all say hello.
What happened to the twilight?
Oops -- it went away.

Is that a flag or something?
It sure looks like one.
Goddamn -- did someone just shoot a rocket at me?
farking jerkoff -- I'll cut you!

And those are bombs! shiat, this ain't worth it.
Tell the gringos Pedro is outta here.
They can cut there own lawns. And screw their strawberry plants!

Is that flag still waving! Hey, good for it!

Oh yes, you got that straight out of the Communist Manifesto. Worker A picks grapes for 12 hours a day. Worker B goes to college and becomes CEO of Merck. But really, the grape picker is earning a more honest wage.

I've always liked hispanic people, but the cultural dog and pony show they are constantly force feeding us, is making me seriously dislike them. I can't even eat at my favorite Mexican restaurants anymore without feeling disgusted that I'm providing support for these asshats.

You people outraged with this are idiots. This is made by NON-US non-immigrants.

Please keep buying into completely made up Republican outrage.

Stop reacting and start thinking!!!

Siding with Bonk that on this one, and you can cite names of places all you want. You could view that as a nod to the history of the place out of respect, but as has been pointed out, this is not an attempt by the mexican-latino community to become patriotic, it is about asserting their desire to change the culture of the US. I didn't see a cuban version of the anthem in Florida, and if they really wanted to appear patriotic learn the current anthem, in the language of our nation. American English. The technicality of no official pronouncement for said language is waived by it being taught in public schools, as a required course, through high school. As other people have mentioned, where I was mostly neutral on this issue I have now been pushed to anti illegal immigration, and more and more against compromising via grandfather clauses etc.

What about if we all streamed over their border, and started picking their lettuce, and stuff?

Huh? What would happen then?

Don't like it here, say it's unfair, Go the fark back home to your own country.

Why can't you people read?!!!

From TFA







In the Spanish version, the translation of the first stanza is relatively faithful to the spirit of the original, though Kidron says the producers wanted to avoid references to bombs and rockets. Instead, there is "fierce combat." The translation of the more obscure second stanza is almost a rewrite, with phrases such as "we are equal, we are brothers."

An alternate version to be released next month includes a rap in English that never occurred to Francis Scott Key:

-Let's not start a war
-With all these hard workers
-They can't help where they were born

"Nuestro Himno" is as fraught with controversial cultural messages as the psychedelic "Banner" Hendrix delivered at the height of the Vietnam War.








I have a serious problem with changing the lyrics of our national anthem. This is beyond just making a translation choice for interpretational phrasing.

Wow, previewing the (bockquote) added some unneccessary space, sorry.

a star bucks, target, walmart, and 40 SUV dealerships would open, their economy would rock, and they're thank us.

And for once a few Americans would be bilingual.

yeah, i'm New Mexican (incidentally, we're the only state that entered the union with a white minority)
i just don't understand all the hostility towards legal or illegal immigrants. it's not like there's some huge gap aside from language or culture. they're not gathering in their shiat housing and conspiring to ruin your stratospheric standard of living. they're too busy trying to keep food on the table, and trying to stay afloat in an extrememly exploitative system that WE benefit from. all they want is equal treatment, equal protection of law and equal rights.
