Have you heard about Geno's Steaks of South Philly?

He's the one with the sign that says "This is America - when ordering, speak English."
Ok, now you may remember something about it.

Well fast forward to today and see what the "tolerant" left is doing:

The Philadelphia Commission on Human Relations complaint effectively opens a case against Geno's Steaks of South Philadelphia, said Rachel Lawton, acting executive director of the agency.
The sign may violate the city's Fair Practices Ordinance, which bans businesses from discriminating on the basis of nationality or ethnicity, Lawton said.

"The complaint will say that the sign discourages patronage by non-English speakers because of their national origin and/or ancestry," Lawton, whose agency enforces the city's anti-discrimination laws, said before the official filing.

That's right, they have the thought police out intimidating a private business for their beliefs.

This is America- a PRIVATE business can treat it's customers however it likes- if they don't like it they go somewhere else. THAT'S how you punish a business, they don't have customers, they don't have a business. Capitolism, but you Liberals wouldn't probably understand the concept.

Lets fisk another quote or two.
Geno's owner Joey Vento, the grandson of Italian immigrants, said he has no plans to remove the sign.

"I don't see why I should have to. It's freedom of speech," said Vento, 66, who opened the restaurant 40 years ago.

He said no one is refused service and no one is discriminated against. The sign, which has been displayed for about six months, is meant to encourage immigrants to learn English, he said.

"If you don't speak English, the sign means nothing," he told Reuters.

The restaurant, in a historically Italian neighborhood that seen an influx of Central American immigrants, has angered Latino groups.

Hmmm, the writer of this story seems to have the same problem with anglis as the non-english speakers do; or most likely Jon is a graduate of our elite journalism academies- if you didn't get it, re-read that last sentence again.

Roberto Santiago, executive director of the city's Council of Spanish Speaking Organizations, said he received around 50 "hate" e-mails in response to his criticism of the sign.

One from California said groups like his should be banned for representing "filthy, illegal alien invaders," he said.

"This is dividing this nation," he said. "I'm really saddened by these individuals who are upset by having to be tolerant. I'm glad I'm living in an America where comments like Mr. Vento's are out of order."

Yep, lets force our third world culture and language on a citzenry that HAS to "tolerate" us, so we don't have to assimilate into a first world country... like the Italians the story is about did.

Yes SeƱor Santiago, America is all about forcing people to accomodate your people who are either too lazy or stupid to learn the language and culture that is all around them. Because we can force people to be "tolerant" of your self-centered cunyaus, and third world hygene.
