Former Major League Baseball pitcher John Rocker is starting a campaign to encourage English-speaking Americans to start demanding respect from legal and illegal immigrants who do not speak English. Â
Rocker is also pushing for immigrants to respect the customs, heritage and culture of the United States. Â
In a news release, Rocker said the “‘Speak English’ campaign is to encourage people to promote and support the sustainment of the American heritage and the American culture. This campaign is in no way intended to degrade or demean the cultures or heritages of others’ nationalities or races, but instead to bolster American nationalism and promote pride in the American culture.” To further his cause, Rocker is selling “Speak English” T-shirts on his Web site.
