These illegals never quit. Public enemy number one in the battle for the American children's souls!

Dora the Explorer

The nerve! Have you seen this show? Teaching kids how to speak Spanish?!?!?!?! And appreciation and tolerance of cultures that ARENT American?! Why Spanish and a Latina? Why should they get their own show and special privileges? Why not a character from Africa teaching kids how to speak Zulu? Or a British character teaching Cockney English? Its clear that Mecha and the MSM have joined forces to force Latino culture on our impressionable children!
Does she teach our children how to burn American flags and get welfare in between teaching the alphabet and number system in MEXICAN!?!?
Couldn't they have put this on Univision instead for that cesspool Mexico??



Well, Im in need of a laugh. How do you guys feel about this Dora the Explorer teaching Spanish to kids on Nick Jr? Good thing or bad thing? Expanding the children's horizons and teaching them to appreciate a culture that is very present in our country, or insidious plan to make our children more susceptible to the Hispanic cultural invasion. The beginning stages of multiculturalism and the precursor to "balkanization" of the US of A.

Sesame street has been teaching spanish since I was a kid.

Although, seriously doras parents are at best neglectful --- the girl is runing wild with a monkey all over a jungle frought with snappy alligators and giant red chickens!
Isn't there an hispanic defamation league?!!

I think a lot of childrens cartoons could be seen as small children experimenting with acid.
I think kid television is screwing up the youth's perception on reality. Talking puppets, fantasy worlds, etc etc.

Outdoor billboard advertising in spanish.

Signs in Spanish (with no translation).

Commercials in spanish during primetime (network) tv. yes they do sneak them in from time to time.

Various products we used to purchase in the grocery stores in with labels only in English, now have them in Spanish and English.

Calling any government office, "press 1 for english, press 2 for spanish".

bi-Lingual education.

Just to name a few.

Not cartoon but Desi Arnaz (Lucille Ball's) husband?

Wait: back then 'Hispanics' were counted as simply Americans.

Here's what some of my Chinese friends said, who are legal immigrants by the way: they said they'll learn Spanish when Hispanics learn Chinese, but also said they have to learn English also. I think there's going to be a big backlash of trying to make everyone speak Spanish because they think the term Americans only apply to Whites. They seem to forget the term Americans has a wide range of nationalities, including immigrants from all over the world. Of course, I have Native American friends who just roll their eyes and say they have the true language of the land. Can't argue with that.

I haven't spoken english in the 2 years that have lived in S.Florida (well, rarely) lol.

It's not just immigrants here that don't speak English . It's citizens who have been here decades and legal residents.

People have a right to speak what they want on 'their time" non work time but here even at work English is not needed (Doral /S.Florida) and you might get fired if you speak it as it's "rude".

hahah, not in the Southwest they weren't. In the 50s? That wasn't too long after American citizens of American descent were being deported.
