Getting Fired in America because you don't speak Spanish!

I was surfing the Internet the other day and found a Video about how Firefighters who are getting fired because they don't speak Spanish. Crew captains are required in some states if not all states to be able to speak their firefighters languages.  Is this a definition of freedom.  Can any one person be allowed to speak a different language on freedom of rights.  I think so.  I think this is allowed to happen because it is his right to be free and therefore his right to speak what ever language he wishes.  As for should he speak English in America?  Well due to the fact that America has no National Language, yes he does have the right to speak Spanish in America.  Should others get fired because he decides to speak Spanish and not English?  No, that is discrimination and against the law.  It is against the Law to discriminated against because once again every man is free in our country.  Could it be taken to the Supreme Court?  Yes, it can and should be taken to the courts for their judgement.  It could even in fact start a national movement or law for the requirement of an English Language. 

The basics of this country is that EVERY man is FREE.  Not just Americans.  We are built on these basic principals.  Someone might argue that they came to our country, they need to learn English.  If they learn English, then we will be forcing a person against his freedoms this country provides him to learn something he doesn't want to. The only forcing that should be done is to force a person who has committed a crime.  If a person harms another person in anyway, they have just given up their rights to be free.  This now allows for a person in this country to be forced to do something, but until that happens their freedoms should not be taken from them.

My personal opinion?  When a cop decides to pull over a person who is not fluent in English, but has a legal drivers license for the state he was driving in because the DMV deems in necessary to put Spanish up on the screens for driving tests instead of English.  This I think is a safety issue and should require either the driver to be fluent in English or Americans in general to be fluent in both languages.  I guess we will see what happens in the next couple of years.  I for one hope that English will be nationalized, but it is not the right of a free man to be forced to learn a new language.
