Says in the paper that a bunch of Hispanic entertainers are putting together a Spanish-language version of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” How dare they!
As a decendant of original Americans who came to this country via the Mayflower, I am mad as hell about this anti-American idea. If Francis Scott Key wanted us to sing his song in spanish he would have set it to a Latina beat in the firts place.
Anyway. translations are evil and should never be made of any important work of literature. For proof, look at what the Shottenstein Edition of the Talmud did to Judaism. Also, if we go to two langauges for our national anthem, we'll be just like Canada and we don't want to get on the slippery slope, do we? Is that what you want America to look like? Canada? What’s next? Free national health care and sensible gun laws? SCREW THAT!
