Left Wing Hispanic Activists Call Ted Cruz And Marco Rubio TRAITORS TO THEIR CULTURE
This is a typical play for progressives. Any member of a perceived identity group who isn’t a liberal Democrat is somehow a traitor to the cause. The same thing happens to conservative women and black people.
The Washington Post reports:
Liberal Hispanic activists assail Rubio, Cruz as ‘traitors’ to their culture
Liberal Hispanic groups have launched a new campaign designed to turn Latino voters against the two Cuban American Republicans who have risen to the top tier of the GOP presidential field — assailing Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz as traitors to their own culture.
Radio and online ads, social media posts and public discussions with Hispanic leaders in swing states are accusing Cruz and Rubio, senators from Texas and Florida, respectively, of fighting against immigration reforms, a minimum wage increase and other changes that millions of Latinos support. Many of the ads equate the two candidates to GOP front-runner Donald Trump, whose sharp rhetoric on immigration has until now drawn most of the attention of Hispanic activists.
“It’s not comfortable for us to do this, to call out members of our own community who don’t reflect our community values, but we have no choice,” said Cristóbal Alex, president of the Democratic-backed Latino Victory Project.
Republicans can never win this game.
If no Hispanic Republicans were running, the GOP would be accused of lacking diversity. If Hispanic Republicans are running, they’re branded traitors.
Heads they win, tails you lose.
