Ostensibly a European language, but it just does not have that connotation here anymore

2018-10-14 03:25:40 UTC  

Right, the context is that Spanish is linguistic warfare

2018-10-14 03:25:53 UTC  

My grandma had a weird mix of an English West-Country and a Massachusetts accent, my other grandma still has an extreme Jawjuh accent

2018-10-14 03:25:59 UTC  

@ophiuchus French is majority African, or will be soon.

2018-10-14 03:26:12 UTC  

My parents have virtually no accent and I definitely don't. Kinda disappointing.

2018-10-14 03:26:41 UTC  

Montreal was passed by Kinshasa as the second largest francophone city recently iirc

2018-10-14 03:27:15 UTC  

Yeah. I mean, Spaniards are obviously European, and after the initial moratorium, if we decide to make immigration a thing again, then they could be eligible, but the situation between us and Latin America is such that there can be no compromise on linguistic intrusion.

2018-10-14 03:27:42 UTC  

Meh. If you call what the Congolese speak French.

2018-10-14 03:28:01 UTC  

That's fair. Anything that has a proper Spanish root for a name was absorbed into English by now anyway. Santa Fe, etc.

2018-10-14 03:28:04 UTC  

Mass media destroys accents

2018-10-14 03:28:17 UTC  

Everyone under 30 sounds like they're from Burbank now

2018-10-14 03:28:28 UTC  

If we make immigration a thing again it should be understood for the sake of cohesion and civilizational self confidence that we speak English and our core culture is English-derived

2018-10-14 03:28:45 UTC  

Canada almost joined the union in the 1800s

2018-10-14 03:28:50 UTC  

@NateDahl76 That's definitely true. We hardly even speak dialects anymore; just Broadcast English in varying accents...

2018-10-14 03:28:52 UTC  

WASP culture is American Culture - Queen Ann

2018-10-14 03:28:54 UTC  

What a superpower we would be...

2018-10-14 03:29:42 UTC  

The Canadian provinces still have a standing invitation to join the union, and thus do not need the approval of congress to join. Fun fact.

@ophiuchus White Anglo-Saxon Pagan? <:varg:359010745192808449>

2018-10-14 03:29:58 UTC  

If the Pig War had popped off, Alaska would have perhaps be connected via Yukon and British Columbia.

2018-10-14 03:30:46 UTC  

Huh. Never knew that (about the standing invitation for the provinces to join).

2018-10-14 03:31:04 UTC  

Didn’t we try to invade them twice

2018-10-14 03:31:19 UTC  

@Wood-Ape - OK/MN The area my grandparents are from in Poland has street signs in the original native language

2018-10-14 03:31:21 UTC  

Also had a “war plan red” in the 30’s

2018-10-14 03:31:22 UTC  

@NateDahl76 Yep. 1775 and 1814.

2018-10-14 03:31:27 UTC  

Yeah we did

2018-10-14 03:31:38 UTC  

Yeah, I read about that (War Plan Red), too.

2018-10-14 03:31:38 UTC  

Muh plains of abraham

2018-10-14 03:32:09 UTC  

Quebec is kind of not really a part of our cultural continuum (as strongly obviously)

2018-10-14 03:32:15 UTC  


2018-10-14 03:32:24 UTC  

There's no meaningful difference between someone from Saskatchewan and someone from North Dakota

2018-10-14 03:32:38 UTC  

There definitely is between someone from Upstate New York and Quebec

2018-10-14 03:33:03 UTC  

Definitely a language thing, although there's a bit of the differing "origin myth" thing too

2018-10-14 03:33:28 UTC  

Yeah, I honestly think that the long-term future of English-speaking (White) North Americans is probably going to be within a single polity.

2018-10-14 03:34:00 UTC  

yeah, I'm inclined to agree

2018-10-14 03:34:06 UTC  

Thanks Nemets, I'll have to check it out

2018-10-14 03:34:17 UTC  

@Nemets I'll read it, might balance out what I got from Beard.

2018-10-14 03:34:57 UTC  

A federation authoritatively united in outward policy but with a good measure of regional and local autonomy would be most desirable imo

2018-10-14 03:35:31 UTC  

There was historically a lot of movement between the US and Canada anyway. For example, my great-grandfather was from an English speaking part of Quebec called Estrie. Moved to Connecticut in his teens, however, his family moved there from Massachusetts during the revolution. Hard to delineate.
