Luis Moreno Jr., the Carolina Panthers’ Spanish-language announcer, has left his job after being pressured by the organization to cease posting his support for President. Trump. According to Moreno, he was contacted by the team’s radio and television affiliate manager and the Spanish-language radio general manager.
Moreno was told the Panthers requested that he remove any information related to their team from his bios on his social media accounts. However, while the Panthers and the NFL promote “Black Lives Matter” political messages on their stadiums and uniforms, they don’t want Moreno to support Pres. Trump on his private social media.
It appears Univision, Telemundo, and other Spanish-language news media agree with the Panthers' censorship since they are silent on this matter. That’s not surprising given their leftist/liberal news spin.
Given a choice between his First Amendment freedoms and his job, he walked away from Panthers. The “Cancel Culture” strikes again, en Espanol.
Canceling a conservative Latino is not new. Leftist/liberal Latino politicians like the Castro twins and Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claim to support Hispanic/Latino rights went after Goya Foods CEO recently for complimenting Trump.
Ironically, Spanish-language media and news personalities who benefit from the First Amendment in the United States are not defending Moreno. Their silence also shows their biased and antagonistic view against conservatives and Republicans.
Moreno did not post anything vulgar or violent on his personal and private social media accounts. He voiced his political opinions as is the right of all citizens as protected by the U.S. Constitution.
The Panthers should be criticized for their hypocrisy and violation of free speech, and Spanish-language news media should be ashamed for not defending a Latino’s First Amendment rights.
We must all stand with Luis Moreno Jr. because when one person is intimidated and silenced by the Left, we are all in danger.
