(NaturalNews) When it has gotten to the point that Americans cannot even insist that their college courses be taught in English, the true language of our culture, the "debate" over immigrants and immigration has moved past the point of being absurd.

And yet, practically every day Americans in many parts of the country are forced to endure this absurdity. To wit: Arizona nursing student Terri Bennett, who is now suing the Pima Community College in Pima County after the school allegedly labeled her a "bigot" and suspended her for daring to ask that her nursing course be taught in English - so they would be, you know, easier for her to learn. Per Breitbart News:

According Bennett's legal complaint, she started nursing classes at PCC in January 2013. During classroom hours, she and her fellow students were divided up into smaller groups, and she was "the only first-language English speaker" in her group. The other students in her group "spoke primarily in Spanish."

So much for 'anonymous'

The students were asked to fill out class evaluations in March and were told their answers would remain anonymous. Thus, Bennett indicated on her evaluation she would prefer "there were no Spanish in the classroom."


In another course, Bennett said that, shortly after turning in her course evaluation, Spanish was so heavily used throughout the classroom that she was unable to "concentrate." By April 3, she said, the learning environment was so difficult that she "followed PCC procedures and requested an interview with the Director of the Nursing Program."

In her complaint Bennett alleged that, after she told David Kutzler, the nursing director, about her issues, he accused her of "discriminating against Mexican-Americans" and that she was a "bigot and a bitch."

The very next day, according to reports, Bennett was summoned to appear before a broader meeting PCC staff. There, she was allegedly told that she was "discriminating" and that she wouldn't "get a job" even if she finished her nursing degree. Kutzler also took part in that meeting as well, reports said, and even confronted Bennett with her class evaluation, which she believed was submitted anonymously.

It got worse from there. Per Breitbart:

On April 15, Bennett was given a routine progress report in which she was accused of having "ineffective communication skills." On April 22, security personnel were waiting for her when she arrived at school; she was suspended and reportedly "instructed to leave campus immediately."

At the time she was given a letter from school officials stating her suspension was based on charges that her "presence on College property [posed] a significant risk of disruption to educational activities" - ironic, given that the environment she was in wasn't conducive to her learning - and that she "engaged in discriminatory conduct," among other negative conduct.

All for asking that courses in an American school be taught in English.

Requiring English only makes sense, but good luck accomplishing it

While there is no "official" language in the U.S., Americans - and the colonists who became our founders - spoke English. The only reason that English is not our "official language" is politics; the progressive left has decided for us that anyone who suggests immigrants assimilate and learn the language of our culture, which is English, should be treated exactly like this nursing student, or worse.

Not all political leaders cow tow to the progressive left's language and behavior Nazis. One of them is U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, born of Cuban immigrants. In a recent interview he said, when asked if English should be America's official language:

It's the official language of Florida. That doesn't mean we prohibit people from speaking other languages. I mean, I think the more languages somebody speaks the better and more economically empowered they are. But all of us in America need to speak one common language...

Though mandating a common language would fix a great deal of problems and alleviate much misunderstanding among us, getting it done in today's overheated, over-sensitized political environment, where real and feigned outrage has long replaced civilized discourse and discussion, seems impossible.
