Fake News: Governor Of California Did NOT Sign A Law Requiring All Students To Learn English

Did the governor of California just sign a law that will require all students to learn English? No, that's not true. A meme claiming it happened was posted on a Facebook page set up for trolling conservatives and Trump supporters into sharing fake news so they can be mocked for it. It was not real.

The meme was posted on May 24, 2018 by a Facebook page named "America's Last Line Of Defense" (archived here) and the text read:

The governor of California just signed a law that will require all studens to learn Spanish. Are you brave enough to spread the word? This is America. We will not stand for it.

The man pictured is actually the Republican governor of Vermont, Phil Scott, signing new gun legislation:

The 'about' section of the Facebook page that posted the meme reads:

Nothing on this page is real. It is a collection of the satirical whimsies of liberal trolls masquerading as conservatives. You have been warned.

Use the force and the truth shall reveal itself. Just not here. Ever.

Good Old Fashioned Liberal Troll Provided Fantasy presented as comedy to the left and a social experiment to the right. Please don't hurt the Trumpanzees. they'll be gone in a few years back to the shadows from whence they came and we'll be back to trolling Tea Turds.

So don't fall for it!
