No, this is not from The Onion. It really happened.

“We should not have a multicultural society,” Bush said. “When you create pockets of isolation, and in some cases, the assimilation process has been retarded, it’s wrong. It limits people’s aspirations.”

He said Americans’ national identity is defined by the “set of values that people share,” rather than race. Bush also said learning English is an important part of the assimilation process.

Wasn't he the guy defending himself for speaking Spanish to people at his rallies? Am I wrong, or is his wife a Latina? Isn't that multicultural?

What is that, if not multiculturalism? To Jeb, it's apparently bad.

Can you help us out?
