I need help

I'm not an English native speaker. Sometimes, I have problems to understand some words or some expressions.

Specifically these signs :



These are disturbing :





Dissect live babies ?



How do you peel a Congress ?



What are the other colors?



Is it a word salad ?



I thought English was already the official language ?



Who is Hugh and what have he done to "mistake America" (what does it mean?) ?



What mean STY ?



Is it in English ?

2. I can help with most of them.

Mostly spelling errors. From top to bottom:

1. devide should be divide

2. open your mouth and I will fill it - based on the bad behavior of many ministers, unintentional reference to oral sex by preachers with people they are not marrried to

3. to enter someone is a euphemism for a penis going into a vagina/ commonly used in erotic literature

4. ?

5. rePEEL should be rePEAL

6. redisTRIBtion shoud be redistribUtion

7. calculis should be calculus

8. offical should be official

9. hugh was probably supposed to be huge

10. amensty should be amnesty

11. citiens should be citizens

12. ileagels should be illegals

8. # 4 is a reference to that great bugaboo, the partial birth abortion.

Very rare (illegal in U.S.), not done by Planned Parenthood but at the forefront of Forced Birther fantasies.

11. Google David Daleiden for the answer to #4

David Daleiden is the anti-abortion whackjob who started the lie that Planned Parenthood sells tissue from the fetuses they abort.

7. It says something about our education system

That those who learned English as a second (or third, or fourth) language can spot these errors so easily. But then it appears that Trump never took a basic history course.

10. It's impossible for me to believe there were no history classes wherever he went

In public school here in New York, four years of history - both World History and American History, not to mention a basic understanding of how government works - were the norm. Either he sat in the back and threw spit balls or never attended at all... And wouldn't "military" schools emphasize history?
