A Washington Post article dated Dec. 28, 2018, reports that Democrats are perplexed that Hispanic/Latino support for President Trump continues to be above 30%, even in the face of Trump's immigration hard line. However, the article reveals their lack of understanding about conservative Latino voters, and it also shows ignorance and racism by Democrats towards Latinos in general.
In the November 2018 midterm elections, 32 percent of Latinos voted for Republicans, according to an AP VoteCast data survey conducted by the University of Chicago. Democrats and their liberal media allies wonder why Latinos aren’t voting 80-20 or 90-10 the way black voters vote?
Though Democrats consider Latino voters to be a crucial part of their liberal-leftist-progressive coalition, there is a large and steady bloc of Republican Latinos even on immigration issues. There are several reasons why Hispanics/Latinos are not following the black voting pattern.
In another example of character assassination by the leftist media and the Democrats, The New Yorker Magazine broke the story of another allegation of sexual misconduct by Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh. However, the story, by Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer, has been unraveling since the New Yorker published it on Sunday, Sept. 23.
The accuser, Deborah Ramirez, told the New Yorker she had “significant gaps in her memories” regarding the alleged college party from 1983. However, the New Yorker reported that after six days of “consulting” with a Democratic lawyer, Ramirez believed Kavanaugh was the supposed man who exposed himself to her at a party while they attended Yale University. Really?
Furthermore, The New Yorker admitted that it “has not confirmed with other eyewitnesses that Kavanaugh was present at the party.” Even Ramirez’s best friend from her college days has claimed that she never heard about the incident.
Last Saturday, May 5, the City of Del Rio elected Bruno "Ralphy" Lozano mayor who happens to be a U.S. Air Force veteran and openly, flamboyantly gay. Ironically, Del Rio has for decades been known as the "Queen City".
Lozano defeated longtime incumbent Mayor Robert Garza 2,128, or 61.54 percent to 1,330, or 38.46 percent, but voter turnout was considered low. Only 3,458 voted for mayor out of a city with a population of 36,000.
One police officer was killed in Massachusetts and three others were wounded in Missouri in separate shootings Sunday, July 15, while police were attacked in Chicago over a police-involved shooting.
In Massachusetts, Weymouth police officer Michael Chesna, 42, and a bystander were killed Sunday after a suspect allegedly took the officer’s gun after a vehicle crash and a foot chase, authorities said. Officer Chesna was a veteran of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and he was married with children ages 4 and 9.
In Kansas City, Missouri, a male murder suspect shot three police officers on Sunday during a series of firefights that began at a motel and ended with the suspect’s death. The shooting erupted just after noon at a motel in the city where undercover and tactical officers were conducting an investigation into a robbery and murder.
In Chicago, crowds protested the fatal police-shooting of a black that was being arrested. A video released by the Chicago Police Department show the man resisting and appearing to reach for a gun in his waistband. It’s ironic how quickly protests are organized against police shootings in Chicago, versus the almost daily black-on-black shootings.
Thirty-two police officers have been killed in the line of duty to date in 2018. Democrats and the liberal Media have created an atmosphere of disrespect and anger toward the rule of laws and law enforcement officers, including local police and the Border Patrol. Citizens and voters should remember this in November 2018.
