Language filled with impurities

The Bonner County GOP is going to have to get busy. After all, when you accept the mission of purifying the language, you can’t merely banish “fiesta” from your booth at the fair.

Bonner County GOP celebrates in English

Republican leaders in Sandpoint don’t want their participation in the “Fiesta at the Fair” theme for this year’s Bonner County Fair to be mistaken for a weakening of their resolve that English should be the primary U.S. language, or their support for cracking down on illegal immigration.

They’ve also sent a letter to Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer asking for help.
