Eh, no. That's not what's going to turn American into Naziville. It's the laws put in place to stop so-called "terrorists" -- such as checkpoints within freaking state lines (not just at the border of another country), TSA agents at airports conducting illegal (according to the 4th Amendment) searches, the alleged NSA spying/wiretapping, etc. -all in the name of "security".
A side note: it was mentioned somewhere about "gun toting" Americans being stupid. Eh, there is no argument against having a means of self defense. I mean, I don't own a gun, but if I lived in a neighborhood with a higher crime rate - I'd be the stupid one to not have something to defend myself with. But anyways. Back to the subject at hand....

IMO, the advert promoted Diversity. There was more than one language used. To expect everybody to learn every language of every other immigrant that emigrates here is just silly and unreasonable.

Citizens that speak a foreign language becoming a majority? Now you're just being ridiculous. Although, it is somewhat of a stereotype that 'Mexicans' have a lot of kids. But I doubt you were alluding to that... But children typically pick up a new language easier than their parents. OR, we would be a minority only in those communities... Yeah. That's the only way your statement is viable. In any of the other 95% of the country (apart from these non-English speaking communities) we'd be in the majority.
