Before you read on: Please know that the DeKalb County School system alone deals with 140 languages and that it is merely a matter of time before the crazies demand that we operate our government in any and all languages. There are about 7000 languages in the world. DDS already offers the written road rules exam in 11 foreign languages. 


Below is a short audio of a recent local TV show (GPTV Lawmakers) focused on the state legislature and pending legislation. One senate Resolution (SR587) is being hammered by the liberals because it would allow voters to decide on making English the official constitutional language of Georgia government. Too unifying.

Out takes of the Resolution (SR587) below.

We recommend voters discard the intentionally false anti-English labels used by the media to describe this legislation. The game is to call it “English only” – trusting that you will never understand that if passed and then approved by we the people in November, important safeguards would be put in place IN THE CONSTITUTION for non-English speakers. Again, SR587 (Sen. Josh McKoon and 30-ish cosponsors) is an effort to allow voters to decide on English as the official language of government, not on “English only.”

The liberal media must resort to false labels because polling shows the concept of constitutional official English has the bipartisian support of 76% of Georgians. 

Scott Slade is only one of many in the Georgia media who use the inaccurate description. It is a staple of the Associated Press. WSB-TV libs are shameless in this. The liberal AJC too.

Do you want to be allowed to vote on this question?

Line 80:  “( ) YES Shall the Constitution of Georgia be amended so as to provide that English

Line 81  ( ) NO is the official language of the State of Georgia?”


–> Audio: Turn up the volume.

In which Scott Slade uses the false description invented by the anti-English lobby on SR587, which would allow Georgia voters to decide on amending the state constitution to make English the official language of government and put clear protections into the constitution for non-English speakers. He is speaking to a very liberal rookie legislator, Bee Nguyen, who clearly does not want you to be able to vote on the question.

“…tell us how you feel about the English only legislation…” (here)


 From SR587:

“(b)(1) English is the official language of the State of Georgia…
