Obama Makes Big Push for One World Language

with 68 comments

I have been learning a lot recently from Glenn Beck.  I don’t think there is another reporter who has a better grasp of what this country stands to lose during an Obama presidency.  Beck is the one who first broke the story of attempts by the Obama administration to revive the science of eugenics and get FEMA busy constructing concentration camps.  Now unfortunately, along with Beck’s keen journalistic mind comes a sensitive poet’s heart.   I believe the poor man has suffered more for love of his country than any man should ever have to so in order to save him some grief, I’m going to break tonight’s story myself.

For those of you who have not been paying attention (and shame on you), since he became President, Obama has been pushing hard to create a new world order.   Recently, his friends the Chinese anounced that they believed the world should have one currency.  Notice that the Obama administration has done absolutely nothing to distance themselves from that.  Now, comes Obama’s most insidious attempt at creating a facist world state–controlling our very thoughts by controlling the words that we can use to express ourselves.

Obama was the first Presidential campaign to have an advertisement in Esperanto and translated all his campaign videos into Esperanto.  For those of you not familiar with this farce, Esperanto is an attempt to create one language for the whole world and do away with national and ethnic languages.   If they want one language, I don’t see why they can’t be bothered to learn English like the rest of us.  Anyway, it has been reported to me now by a reliable source that a large part of Obama’s education stimulus is designated for Esperanto instruction in the public schools.  There is already a page on Change.gov demanding that all public schools in this country teach Esperanto and I kid you not, it has over 3,700 looney leftists lending their support to this insane idea.  We must stand up and fight this idea now.  Call you congressman and tell him that this is America.

  1. Of all the ridiculous misinformation about Esperanto that I’ve seen over the years, this one is the most ludicrous. Got just about everything wrong, and saying that President Obama is trying to add courses in Esperanto in the public schools is, unfortunately, also untrue.
    Bah. this author needs medication or sequestering.

  6. Wow, I really thought this post was an April Fool’s joke until I saw it was posted before April 1. As the first comment says, this post is ridiculous – you combine ordinary typical ignorance about Esperanto with seriously confused conspiracy theory about Obama.

    1. Esperanto in no way intends to get rid of other languages. It was created as an easy to learn secondary language so that people with different native languages can communicate with each other. I suggest actually learning something about Esperanto, e.g. via http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Esperanto

    2. Obama has no particular interest in Esperanto. All translations of his speeches into Esperanto were done by Esperantists interested in doing so. Your argument is akin to claiming that Obama wants everyone to speak French and German because his speeches have been translated into French and German.

    3. “it has been reported to me now by a reliable source that a large part of Obama’s education stimulus is designated for Esperanto instruction in the public schools.” Your “reliable source” is laughably unreliable. I speak Esperanto and think it’s a terrific language, but I reckon we’ll see Obama start fighting hard for fully equal same sex marriage, legalization of all drugs, pulling troops out of Iraq AND Afghanistan immediately, end of taxfree status for all churches, removal of “In god we trust” from all US money, a manned mission to Mars, getting rid of all privacy invasions implemented and justified by 9/11, paying teachers decent salaries, and requiring the Pentagon to hold bake sales to gain their funding before he does anything related to Esperanto…

    4. “it has over 3,700 looney leftists lending their support to this insane idea.” There are plenty of rightists who speak Esperanto as well. And the fact that something was proposed on change.gov tells NOTHING about whether Obama supports it – it simply shows that a few thousand people were motivated to sign an online petition. If you interpret that as some kind of mandate that Obama enthusiastically supports, I think you’ll find an awful lot of “secret Obama goals” at change.gov which will shock and frighten you even more than Esperanto apparently does.

    And you utterly misunderstand the point. No one wants to replace English (or any other national language). Learning Esperanto is a way to be able to communicate directly with people from other countries, on an equal basis, without expecting them to invest many years and effort and money to learn English, which they’ll never know as well as a native English speaker, nor expecting you to spend many years and effort and money to learn German or French or whatever, which you will never know as well as a native speaker.

    Additionally, Esperanto has educational value as children can gain the experience of becoming fluent in a foreign language much more quickly and easily (since Esperanto is intentionally faster to learn than national languages like English or German), which helps when learning other languages. (I trust you at least acknowledge that it is useful to learn other languages, right? Or do you actually believe that everyone else in the world should just change to English?)

    As an English speaker (native to the UK but living in the US) I love languages. Learning languages is a great way for people to experience other cultures. If Obama can encourage kids to learn a foreign language then that will benefit all the the American people.

    As for making English the universal language of the planet because more people speaking, well then that’s just wrong. More people speak Chinese, so by your logic we should all be learning that. Also, which version of English should they learn? In the US alone there are at least 4 or 5 different distinct dialects…

    As for no Chinese people responding to this blog, why would they want to? They probably have better things to do (I’m only doing this because I’m bored and wanted to add some other languages to the conversation).

    And, most other countries in the world are multi-lingual – that is, people are fluent in at least 2-8 languages (and I do mean fluent). Much more so than here in America.

    There’s nothing wrong with learning about new cultures and new languages. All of our languages are interconnected, derived from each other – derived from German, French, Greek, Latin, etc. I’m truly hoping you’re joking about that comment, amongst many others.

  42. Learning a new language is not controling how you think, it’s expanding your (very narrow at the moment) mind to understand other cultures and other countries.
    Also, esperanto’s goal is not to go away with other languages. Instead, it proposes an easy-to-learn second language that is equal for everybody.
    You ask about why can’t everybody learn english? well, for one is not as easy as esperanto (I’m a native spanish speaker and in order to speak english, I had to study for it for some years, I’ve been speaking esperanto for a little over a year now, and I’m really fluent already), and secondly why can’t you americans learn another language? you’re really closed-minded.
    Learning another language is culture, not trying to learn one is saying that you don’t need culture, thinking that is the path to the ignorance.

  46. ThatsrightNate’s articles are clearly satire somewhat akin to article’s published by The Onion among others.Personally I find them entertaining albeit more than a little ludicrous

    I’m amazed that anyone ever takes his self parodying assertions seriously!

    That being said he does manage to push some rather sensitive buttons. One of the sensitive buttons around the World is the chauvinistic attitude of English speaking people’s regarding what they perceive as the ascendancy and (presumably)in time the ultimate supremacy of the English language over all other contenders.

    Esperantists on the whole do not display this type of arrogance nor do they assume their language will ultimately displace any other native tongue.

    Esperanto was never intended to be the “worlds single language” nor does it hope to be.

    The hope of Esperanto is that all people have a common second language that can be used internationally or inter-culturally to facilitate World communication.

    This universally understood second language would in fact preserve and enhance the use of smaller languages in the home community by lessening the pressure to adopt a different more dominant language in order to get along in society.

    Think about it, if everyone is able to speak to anyone else by means of a simple second language only when it was needed why would anyone feel it was necessary to abandon their mother tongue at home?

    For those who insist that English will someday be the second World language let me assure you; it will not. Since 1979 the use of English has seriously decreased going from what was then the second most widely spoken language to today where it is now the sixth, and it is still dropping rapidly.

    Further English is a very difficult language to learn, particularly for Asians. I’ve taught Chinese students who even after 10 or more years of intensive English study are still functionally illiterate in written English and are almost unintelligible when speaking it.

    Chinese Esperantists on the other hand are usually fully literate in as little as 2 years and highly intelligible when speaking Esperanto albeit with a discernible accent.

    Esperanto is a simple language to learn for Indo-European speakers and it is relatively easy to learn for just about everyone else.

    If there is ever going to be a second language for World intercommunication it will not be any existing natural language with all of its complexity and cultural/national baggage. Instead I believe Esperanto or another very similar, simple, flexible, culturally neutral, constructed language, will be chosen.

  50. Cunning linguistics and parody aside, any language could technically be used as a universal language so long as it has a standardized and academic form. This means ALL major languages fit the bill. Although the first language you learn influences how you learn other languages, they’re roughly equivalent if learned by regular speech at home when a child. So really, this defaults us to Latin, the only static-but-not-dead language that is actually still in use. There are plenty of arguments to be made for any language, but as an English speaker who has learned the basics of Spanish and Latin, as well as being familiar with the structures and advantages of Asianic and Czech languages, it comes down to what you want.

    Latin or any of the artifically created langues work fine as a secondary trade language, and would remain that way by their simplicity. Certain things simply cannot (at least without creative metaphor and situational use) be said in these languages, which would prevent them from usurping native tongues. By contrast, for all of their advantages, ANY native tongue gains complexity of expression and dialect. Sub-dialects form when leanred by people of other cultures. Even with a universal standard, these languages still and always will fracture regionally. I personally prefer English, because despite a sometimes unweildly structure, it is constantly undergoing adaptive modification by shamelessly stealing from any other language or slang that people come to understand. This gives it the ability to shade and differentiate based on the word used in writing, without having to rely purely on tone, context, and elaborate tricks. This is why English has more variation in only a few thousand years than other languages have had over almost a far longer. Old, Middle, Late, and Modern [with all its dialects] are hardly recognizable as the same langauge! Queen’s English and Ameringlish speakers lose each other constantly in a single sentence.

    Oh, and on that note: I think every English speaker should have at least one secondary language that ISN’T Esperanto or its ilk. I’m still working on that myself…

    P.S.S. – You’re right, Americans in particular have some issues with willful ignorance. That’s part of the point of the parody. Parody and satire know no single tongue or form of expression, and the inability to recognize them is a willful ignorance flaw all its own. Americans like miself have a lot of flaws, but so does every other human on the planet 😉

  52. @MasterDebator,

    yes you could make any language the universal language, but wouldn’t it make sense to choose the easiest to learn, yet still fully functional language there is? my first attempt at foreign language was Latin and i don’t remember anything except that nouns have 6 cases! Esperanto has two and you must not conjugate verbs, words have no gender and there are rules with no exceptions! it was purposely designed by one guy to be easy. Latin was not. The only good thing I see about Latin is that it is dead ‘enough’ to have no native speakers that have an advantage over those learning it. this creates an ‘even playing field’ when two people are speaking it. of course, Esperanto has this as well. i have been living in Germany for 4 years now and speak German all day and am depressed to finally accept that i will NEVER sound like a German. i decided my next language will be Esperanto and already have a little under my belt. way easier than German so far. please do a little more research on Esperanto and maybe re-evaluate your stance. gxis!

    Yeah, some of the things he said are offensive, but so is Southpark. It has pissed me off so many times, but it is still funny. When you know that it is meant to piss you off, you are able to see the humour in it. I do agree, it is a sick kind of humour, but it isn’t that bad. english will probably not even be english 100 years from now…

    Nate: I love how you maintained your composure and kept these people going. I want to admit that I whole heartedly disagree with you, but I haven’t been this entertained by article commentary in a long time.

    I think the last time it entertained me this much, some kids on a forum were talking about getting high off of catnip and nutmeg.

    I have an idea for you… It is more or less a concept.

  60. Complete and total sacrilege. I should point out that despite what you think about “humour” on this blog we don’t need the added “colour”. We spell American.

  61. you’re a bit ignorant, I’m glad other people picked up on that too with their comments.

  62. Maybe if you’d all speak English, you could explain it to people in a language that they’d understand.

  63. Esperanto is not an attempt or neither was it ever an attempt to be the national language as in no other language but esperanto. The language is ment to be a connector. It is supposed to be everyones second or third language. It is supposed to be where english is now but farther.

    WOW you got it wrong

  64. Sorry, English is where English is now, but even farther.

  65. You are wrong. Obama is not trying to set up concentration camps, and Esperanto is not trying to destroy all other languages. Esperanto is supposed to be a second language, that everyone can learn in addition to their main one. It was created so that people could communicate with others from different cultures and backgrounds in all different countries. It was created to promote international cooperation and understanding (and ultimately peace.) Glenn Beck is an entertainer. You should double check anything that comes out of his mouth, because quite often it is just propaganda or flat out lies.

    You're wrong

  66. One world language makes sense It should be a language constructed and excepted by a majority of countries, People who speak the same language are less likely to kill each other, less wars, what is the downside?, It doesnt have to exclude the language you were born with. It doesnt make any sense that the whole world speaks so many different languages, How much understanding is lost in translations? The fact that Obama understands this is to his credit, the fact that right wing radicals are threatened by change is nothing new.

  67. One official language for the whole world would be a great idea (but maybe not Esperanto; the Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Arabic people would find it hard to learn). I think the best way to go about finding a single worldwide language would be to put the name of every language in a hat and draw one out at random; that way there would be no bias. People could still continue speaking regional languages among family and other people who speak the same language (that way our cultures would not be lost), but if every person on Earth knew a common language, tourism and exchanging information, ideas, and technology would be much easier. Also, it would eliminate confusion in places like Spain, which has about four different languages in different regions.

  68. I perform a lot of number analysis for these types of games because I feel that history can give us an idea of what can happen in the future. As you know it may be impossible to decipher the winning team in the NFL. This is why I consider using trends for basketball.
