Newt Apologizes to Latinos en Espanol
When the former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, said that bi-lingual education taught "the language of living in a ghetto" and not the language of prosperity, many were outraged. Since Los Angeles is the second largest Spanish-speaking city in the world, the offense couldn't have felt stronger in the US than here.
Then Newt said that he meant ghetto in a Jew way... because they're not prosperous? Preposterous! We're sure LA's chosen people were thrilled about that one.
So Newt created a video, posted it up on his YouTube account today, and here it is. Happy now?
