Fail Quote: Vox Day plays false equivalency

HOLA amigos!

From Vox Day, sounding all ruffled that students in a Texas school Spanish class are actually learning Spanish stuff:

The Mexication of the American Southwest proceeds apace:

Students in a Texas public high school were made to stand up and recite the Mexican national anthem and Mexican pledge of allegiance as part of a Spanish class assignment, but the school district maintains there was nothing wrong with the lesson.

If you don't see any problem with this, imagine if the Texas students were forced to sing Deutschland Uber Alles and learn the Nazi salute as part of a German class assignment. Perhaps for an encore, they can learn the geography of Mexico and which cartels control which regions.

Right. Because learning about other countries’ anthems and mottos in a context-sensitive school classroom is exactly the same as submitting oneself to propaganda for a genocidal totalitarian regime.

I don’t know what he’s on, but it sounds like powerful stuff.
