The irony of the radio add was that I was on my way to a public school to interpret for an immigrant family.
Central Ohio has a radio station that is 24/7 Spanish language, primarly catering to a Mexican community. I can rarely get it but was driving through a part of town that had pretty decent receiption so I tuned in. There was an add (in spanish) with a woman’s voice saying something to the effect of “My daughter is afraid to go to school. She is afriad of the violence. The schools don’t care, and the administrators don’t care. I moved to this country so my daughter could have a better education than I had in my home country. But the politicians don’t even want us to choose where we send our children to school. The democrats have voted against us choosing where we can send our children to school. That is why I am voting for the republicans.”
I was stunned. Absolutly, stunned.
1. Lies, lies, lies.
2. Why are you bothering advertising on the Spanish radio station? Really the voting block of those who speak Spanish won’t come to voting age for at least another 5 years.
3. Lies, lies, lies.
