Tom Brokaw Is Apologizing For Being Honest. He Will Be Made to Care.

On Meet the Press, Tom Brokaw said hispanic families in the United States need to work hard at assimilating into the country and ensure their children learn English.

When my grandfather immigrated to the United States after the turn of the twentieth century, he was told basically the same thing — heavy on the learn English part. It is a bit of common sense.

But the left has decided this bit of common sense is racism and Brokaw is being savaged as a racist for saying it. It’s just truth.

The outrage is amped up by a group of partisan progressives who have long decided that assimilation is somehow an embrace of whiteness instead of Americanness, but there is something else here too.

The more a hispanic family assimilates into the United States, the more likely they are to identify as conservative. The left can’t have that. So to suggest they work to be part of the fabric of our common society is heresy.

Tom Brokaw will have to repent.
