I don't think that's possible. Instead, use the FieldType DropDate instead. It's free and very well done.
If you want to stick with the EE date fieldtype and not display the localized/fixed select then you could use jQuery. To hide them across the board,
will do the trick.
CP CSS & JS gives a quick way to add JS to the control panel.
**Not advised to change core ** but you may comment out the below line at to hide it:
$r .= form_dropdown($date_local, $localized_opts, $localized, 'dir="'.$text_direction.'"');
// $r .= form_dropdown($date_local, $localized_opts, $localized, 'dir="'.$text_direction.'"');
