The Hispanics That Democrats Love to Hate

Pages: 1 2

Earlier immigrant groups have all yielded to mainstream American political enlightenment. Though the Reagan Revolution made inroads, over a third of Italian Americans remain registered with America’s majority political party, along with almost half of Irish Americans. Jewish Americans habitually skew 65-85 percent for America’s majority party.

Yet these insufferable Cuban Americans simply will not see the light—simply will not politically assimilate. Not all the Kings Horses or all the King’s Men can bring them around to follow the lead of the majority in their adopted country and register Democratic.

During candidate Obama’s campaign visit to Miami summer of 2008, a huge crowd clapped deliriously at the Democratic Messiah—while outside the convention Hall, Cuban Americans marched and waved picket signs denouncing him. This was the first instance of such irreverence towards The One during this campaign, and it greatly discomfited his team.

To add insult to injury, a formal letter drafted by five major Cuban American organizations at the time, including the Bay of Pigs Veterans Association and Cuban Political Prisoners Association, called Obama’s candidacy “an affront” to their very sensibilities. Nothing remotely of this sort had been mounted by properly assimilated Americans on any campaign stop by the Democratic candidate.

This political and cultural non-conformity has often goaded the Democratic/Media axis to enraged sputterings against Cuban Americans. During their convention in 2004, America’s majority political party feted Michael Moore as their honored guest, seating him in a place of honor right next to Jimmy Carter. “Cuban-Americans,” wrote this honored guest for America’s majority party in his book “Downsize This,” “are responsible for sleaze and influence-peddling in American politics. In every incident of national torment that has deflated our country for the past three decades, Cuban exiles are always present and involved.” Change Cuban for any other ethnic group in the above passages and imagine the media UPROAR! About “RACSIM! and “BIGOTRY!”

“My mother sees political activism as an opportunity to change people’s lives for the better,” gushed Democratic Convention Golden Boy Julian Castro this week. Yet his mother proudly marched under the banner of Che Guevara, as uncovered by the intrepid bloggers of Babalu Blog.

“Changed lives for the better,” Mr. Castro?  Your mothere’s icon co-founded a regime that plunged a nation with a standard of living higher than half of Europe and swamped with immigrants into a pesthole that repels Haitians.

“My family’s story isn’t special,” continued Democratic Convention keynoter Julian Castro. “What’s special is the America that makes our story possible.”

Then why does your mother idolize a Stalinist who cursed her nation as “the great enemy of mankind!” and greatly regretted not nuking it:  “If the missiles had remained in Cuba we would have fired them at the heart of the U.S.!” boasted Che Guevara to Sam Russell of The London Daily Worker, Nov. 1962.

    Why should Cubans be sympatetic to the Democrap party???
    Who left them hanging from the brush because he took away the ladder but a Democrap President at the
    BAHIA DE COCHINOS fiasco ????
    And as to this Latino "rising star" of the Democrap party, this Mr. CASTRO, the reverse of he coin to Mr.
    RUBIO, after listening to his speech, I wouldn't trust him as far as I can throw him…
    Just another market place demagogue…..and if what he author states about that piece of work of his mother,
    much less…
    I know the kind, having shaven dry on my own beard…..

    As an American of Hispanic descent, I have lived the Cuban Miracle in this city for decades, only to see it tarnished by the arrival of successive Cuban migrations rife with socialist infiltrators who bring a different attitude to a free market. Tempered by 50 years of Communist indoctrination in the Captive Island,these are the new Democrats.
    Furthermore, Immigration has diluted the Cuban-American vote, just as education diluted the need for liberty in these new immigrants who believe in the Big Government solutions that they learned back in the old country, and is now reinforced by our public education system.
    I grieve for my country, and I understand perfectly Mr. Fontova clarification. We need more of the first Cuban-Americans who escaped Communism, but where can we find them?

    Where is my comment?

    I presented a paper at the Undergraduate Symposium at Eastern Michigan University in 2005 that made a causal connection between culture and socio-economic outcomes. One of the populations I examined was the Cuban-American. After making my causal argument, I compared the Cuban-American community with the African-American community. When the Q&A started, a hairy-pitted woman with a lip ring said, and I quote, "I think your argument is real….I just don't agree with it." See, your argument can be true, but that doesn't necessarily compel agreement. And that is how a leftist/Democrat thinks.

    I like Mr. Fontova, he has generously responded to my emails in the past. Good article, again.

      The left doesn't want people to be open-minded about politics, period. There are blacks and other minorities who are prominent members in the Republican Party. Herman Cain, Mia Love, Clarence Thomas and Allen West are just few of many examples of minority conservatives. However, their views aren't heard that often, because the left is afraid of facing the fact that there are minority (especially if they are black) conservatives who are charismatic and have the potential to win elections and improve American society. The left derides such people as (but not limited to) "Uncle Toms", sell-outs", "house slaves", "Oreos", "inauthentics" and "suffering from Stockholm Syndrome". Because of the racist insults that the left uses against minority conservatives, the left is able to intimidate voters into (continuing to) voting for the Democrats in elections. That's why MSNBC and other left-wing media entities ignored and/or edited minority conservatives every time those conservative spoke at the GOP convention. The left (and the MSM) is afraid of the truth, which is that there are minorities who are prominent members of the GOP and the conservative movement. The people (particularly minorities) need to stand up to the left's meaningless propaganda.

        Then in the back ground they have George Soros funding their deliberate ruin politically.

    I don't think the Cuban-Americans will every forget who left them stranded at the Bay-of-Pigs. It was not a Republican president!

  • HighPressure

    The Cuban community doesn’t forget what Janet Reno did twice to them once with Emilio Gonzalez where storm troopers against a court order stormed a citizens home and the shoot down of two unarmed Cessna’s outside Cuban territory by two Cuban MIGs with apparent complicity of Sandy Berger and Clinton. You even had Liberal Actor Danny Glover justify the shoot down and murder and speaking for Castro.

    Democrats are the real Nazis of todays World.

    Not all Italian-Americans are sympathetic to the Democrats. Look at Rick Santorum. He's Italian-American and a Republican.
