“Gloria held a fundraiser for Hussein in her Florida mansion a few months ago.”

Gloria must be pining for the good old days of communism.

Pretty soon every character on that show will be homosexual. Even the track coach is a lesbian in real life.

She has become a HUGE disappointment.

Her family flees slavery only to have her embrace the plantation slavery of the democrat party.

Just found this after searching for articles where Estefan talked about Castro . . . have to admit that this one from 1997 dumbfounded me a bit.
Cuban-American singer Gloria Estefan says she doesn't regret the debate over freedom of speech in which she recently became involved after she spoke up in defense of a Dade County advisory board member who was removed from her position for advocating Castro associated artists be allowed to perform in Miami. ''It's very simple. Freedom of speech means letting everybody talk, including those with whom one disagrees. A small group, hiding behind the microphone of a radio station, has manipulated my words, has lied and has insulted us,'' said Estefan. ''That is not going to make me change my mind. I defend and will defend freedom of speech because it's one of the important things that separates us from Castro's Cuba. There isn't any freedom of speech there like there is here, and I honor all the blood that's been spilled for that.''

Estefan spoke with Exito as she left the CBS Telenoticias TV studios, surrounded by a knot of reporters and the curious. ''I want it to be well understood. I've been lied about and defamed on a Miami radio station,'' said Estefan. ''How could they call me a communist! Me, a communist? That really makes me angry.'' She then refused to take questions from Cuban radio station WCMQ, known for its strong anti-Castro stance. ''What do you want me to say when you are twisting my words,'' Estefan said to a WCMQ reporter. Someone from the crowd suggested Estefan seek equal time from WCMQ. ''What for?,'' shot back Emilio Estefan, Gloria's husband. ''So they can improve their ratings after the absurd things they've been saying? No, we're going to give our side and they can go on with theirs. People will soon know who is lying.'' …
. . . so why does she want to bring all of that here?? Talk about a mixed-up liberal:
Gloria Estefan sees it differently. ''In the whole world, Nelson Mandela is a symbol of freedom. Mandela spent 20 years in jail, fighting against one of the cruelest things which has ever happened in the world, the racial apartheid system,'' said Estefan. ''I am against racism, against discrimination and for freedom. That's why when Mandela called our hotel in South Africa, I didn't even think about it and said yes, that we would be pleased to see him.'' After, Castro, she's the most famous Cuban in the world and people are constantly asking her about the situation in Cuba, said Estefan.

''People don't have a lot of information and when they ask me about it, I tell them about the drama of the exiles, the repression, the firing squads, the horror of communism. I'm very clear about that. I left Cuba when I was two years old. They took away my country, they stole the most intimate thing a human being can have. How could I forget that Fidel Castro was the person who did me so much harm?,'' said Estefan. Sometimes, speaking about Cuba is not easy, said Estefan.''When they invited me to sing at the Vatican, they asked me what I was going to say,'' said Estefan. ''I told them that I was going to ask the Holy Father for Cuba's freedom. And the Vatican official said, 'Oh no, my daughter, that's political. So I told them that if they didn't let me ask for Cuba's freedom, they would have to get someone else because I wouldn't sing. They gave in and as soon as I grabbed the mike I said it very clearly: Holy Father, do not forget to ask for Cuba's freedom in your prayers.'' …
Um, Mandela is just as much of a communist terrorist as your buddy Castro whom you claim has done you "so much harm", and the regime he set up is doing exactly to South Africa what Castro did to Cuba, maybe worse.

Just unbelievable . . . but at this juncture, maybe not.

In the majority of real cases like this, do most mothers support their gay children? If not, what do they do about it?

that show just confirms the stereotype that glee club is now officially only for homosexuals.

Mothers and Fathers must keep their children away from glee clubs.

In fact the show “glee” should be v-chip blocked.
(this is why there must be an “H” rating for such sexual content shows.)

From what I understand, the show was decent the first year, but has now become gay propaganda.

You have every right to invoke the "Not in My House" rule.

I did so with a number of TV shows, and the kids, now adults, don't hate me.

Maybe I am just imagining this... but seems like I read that she acknowledged she had a fund-raiser for him, but that she did not give any money, and has since decided that she no longer supports him.

Such a repulsive show.

To quote a line verbatim from an episode I was subjected to at a relative’s house: “Then I’ll be smart AND pretty, just like Michelle Obama”.

Aside from it being inaccurate, it is also bad writing, and a pathetic sucking up to a politician’s wife.

I heard the ratings are plummeting. Talk about self indulgence for the gay agenda. Btw the problem is the show, not G Estefan. It’s a paycheck.

I could do that, but I think I'm making headway with her, because she refused to watch the "losing your virginity" episode. That's a good sign.

the first year promos were directed at saying “glee” was going to show that glee club was not homosexuals. then it went to not for losers. now it is all losers and homosexuals. Advertisers need to stay FAR away from that program.

I am not saying mothers and fathers don’t LOVE their kids. This isn’t what the show seems to do—it seems to be the HOMOSEXUALITY is celebrated. Big difference.

Now that's interesting. Maybe ordinary people are sick and tired of being force-fed gayness.

There's something wrong with that sentence, but I'll let it go. :)

I hope they do.

It's too bad, though--I like the actress that plays the track coach; she was funny as the psychiatrist treating Charlie Harper (Sheen) on Two and a Half Men.

Glee has become all about gays and how normal and wonderful it is to be gay. The first season was really cute but is completely unwatchable now.

I really have not even seen any of it..When the woman (I don't even know her name)came out saying she is gay that put a stop to me watching..I was very disappointed because she is such a good actress..If she is queer then keep it to herself..That show was meant to be put on for teens so they will think nothing of being a queer..Sorry I am so sick of what has becomes of our country values..

I have never seen Glee. I do not want to see Glee. I will never watch Glee. I go out of my way to not hear, see or speak about anything Glee. Just hearing about this show gives me the creeps.

Good for you. Hang tough, they will respect you in the end. My 30-year-old daughter just thanked me yesterday for keeping a tight reign on her when she was a teen. Probably because she is now about to be a mom herself :)
