ok tell me exactly how he is a bigot? because he wants people in his country to speak his language? I dont see the bigotry here I, I mean its not like
he had it posted that if you dont speak english i wont serve you, if you wuld look at the video attached to the storie you would hear it many times
that he never refused service to non english speaking customer. All he asked is that they put forth an effort to learn the language of the country
that they are living in. I meam would you go over to mexico walk up to a taco stand and say oh can you speak english for me? NO! you are in their
country you speak their language and they expect that, or try going to a restraunt in the french section of Canada and see if they will let you order
in english, I doubt it. So all this man did was try to keep the primary language of his country the primary language, as far as the title gos. It
is an oponion. I believe the man was a patriot . You dont have to agree with it but you have to deal with it because this is my post. (see first
Now, I appreciate your comments and feedback and i respect your oponion and i request that you do the same. if you cannot or if the title upsets you
too much i ask you click away from this post you do not have to view it. thanks agian for the feedback and hope i cleared this up
While it is important to speak the local lanuage, and I have been in positions where the shop keeper has helped me learn their local language, it was
for my own benefit too, it is a good thing, HOWEVER, it is also a 2 way street, while the immegrant ( I have been an immegrant in Europe many times in
many member countries ), they also try a little to speak my language.
Both can play, and infact need to, it is also fun, learning new things.
He can try to learn their language, and they can learn his. Both have fun and learn something useful.
I think the lanugage problem is mostly an Britsh and American problem, they are the worst performers in languages in the world, a lot due to blind
patriotism, stubbornness, geographic isolation (for britain, no borders onto other lanuges and no welsh or scots doesnt count lol), and bad education,
and ignorance. A lot comes down to confidence, or lack there of.
Most people in europe speak at least 2 or 3 languages and even more. Some countries in europe have 2 national official languages. Very educated, very
versed in multiiple languages.
I have seen Americans and British people abroad in Europe , LIVING there, and they refuse to learn the local language, they force people to speak
their own language, English. That is just stupid, ignorant and bad for them integrating. I have seen this first hand with my own ears and eyes.
The worst immegrants after muslims, are the british and the americans. really.
