Rocker Gene Simmons Tells Immigrants to Learn Some English and Assimilate
immons gave some harsh advice to immigrants in a Huffington Post interview this week, crushing the left’s politically-correct narrative that everyone can just come to America, keep their own language, keep their own culture, not assimilate, and still somehow live the American dream and obtain success.
“You have an inferred fiduciary duty to learn how to speak English. Get rid of your a accent. I did. Be a legal immigrant. I’m a legal immigrant,” said Simmons, 63, who immigrated to the U.S. from Israel when he was eight years old.
“I’m actually saying the thing that needs to be said because the politically-correct climate is bullshit,” Simmons told squirming and overly sensitive Hufffington Post reporter Ricky Camilleri. “You don’t want to upset anybody by saying, ‘Learn to speak goddamn English.’ So, as an immigrant, I’m telling you: learn to speak goddamn English. It will unlock the keys to the kingdom,” Simmons advised.
What’s so controversial about that?
Seriously. That’s going to outrage some folks and I don’t get why.
Can you tell me in the comments, please?
