  • Chris Matthews doesn’t think Cruz and Rubio are Hispanic - but he did when he was attacking them

    Canada Free Press ^ | 11/12/15 | Robert Laurie
    But they're definitely "Cuban Nationals" Chris Matthews is lost in a quandary. He doesn’t know how to categorize Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz. Since he’s a lifelong left-winger, placing humans into the proper boxes is of the utmost importance, because it’s the only thing that informs his commentary. If he doesn’t know what they are, it’s impossible for him to formulate one of his ridiculous attacks. Specifically, he can’t figure out if Rubio and Cruz are “Hispanic.” He’s pretty sure they’re “Cuban Nationals,” but beyond that he has no idea which label he should apply, and that’s upsetting his identity...

    Ted Cruz faces another hurdle in his presidential campaign: his ancestry. A Millersville University student writing for LifeZette noted an exchange with her political science professor where the professor declared that Cruz isnt Hispanic enough. The exchange occurred when the professor dismissed the Republican candidates as old, white men, and the student, Kaytee Moyer, listed five candidates who didnt fit the mold.That wasnt the first time Cruz has faced scrutiny for his ethnicity. His conservative views have made his authenticity suspicious in the eyes of some prominent (or formerly prominent) Hispanic politicians.Its a strange quarrel, and a sign that even...

Still, her Latino support drops four percentage points when she is matched up against Trump in a hypothetical general election. ... And conventional wisdom conveniently forgets that modern presidential elections cycles have shown, on average, a fairly consistent 30 percent Latino vote for the Republican nominee, a figure that privately worries Democrats....

    Politicians are scrambling to gain favor with the ethnic group du jour: Hispanic voters. Sadly, both Democrats and Republicans are engaging in the worst kind of identity politics in an attempt to pander to this growing voting bloc. This tactic was invented by Democrats, so its only natural they would have an advantage. But history has shown that blind loyalty to a party is the road to ruin. As Hispanics gain political favor, the black vote is losing its shine. There was a time when Democrats pandered rhetorically to win the black vote to the tune of 90 percent. But...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Hispanic leaders are warning of harm to Republican White House hopes unless the party's presidential contenders do more to condemn Donald Trump, a businessman turned presidential candidate who's refusing to apologize for calling Mexican immigrants rapists and drug dealers. Trump's comments, delivered in his announcement speech last month, have haunted the GOP for much of the last two weeks and dominated Spanish-language media. It's bad timing for a Republican Party that has invested significantly in Hispanic outreach in recent years, given the surging influence of the minority vote. Yet several Republican candidates have avoided the issue altogether,...

    This interview by Mark Halperin with Ted Cruz is a shocking example of liberal double standards. Cruz, a Cuban American, was targeted by Halperin for being an "inauthentic" Hispanic - I guess because he's a conservative Republican. But the insulting, demeaning questions by Halperin asking Cruz to "prove" his genuineness elicited a ringing denunciation from Rueben Navarette: Watching Mark Halperin of Bloomberg Politics interview Cruz recently, I wasn't just uncomfortable. I was actually nauseated. As a journalist, I felt embarrassed for Halperin. As a Hispanic, I felt like I was watching a college fraternity have fun with racial stereotypes,...

    CHICAGO (CBS) Chicago is the most segregated city in the United States, while also being one of the most diverse, according to a new analysis of U.S. Census Data. How can that be possible? Because diversity and segregation are two different things, when you look at them from a city-wide level and then the neighborhood level, writes Nate Silver, the founder and editor of the Five Thirty Eight blog. Chicago deserves its reputation as a segregated city, Silver writes. But it is also an extremely diverse city. And the difference between those terms which are often misused and...

    With the announcement of Ted Cruz's candidacy for the GOP presidential nomination and his speech at the convocation of the ultra-conservative Liberty University, the country finds itself jilted to the right on the ideological spectrum. Ted Cruz is quite the curious ideological torchbearer precisely because he is Latino. The general assumption in politics is that growing Hispanic Latino participation in politics will only mean an ideological shift to the left. This makes Ted Cruz' candidacy a welcome reminder that Latino candidates won't, for good or bad, necessarily stray from traditional American politics any time soon. The son of Cuban immigrants...

    AMERICA is a country built by immigration, but nothing in its history compares to the rise in its Hispanic population. Changes to immigration law in the 1960s triggered a decades-long surge in arrivals, taking the Hispanic population from just 7m in 1970 to 57m today, a number that is set to double by mid-century. At that point one in four Americans will be of Latino descent. In relation to the population of the day, there have been proportionally larger surges in the past, notably involving European migrations in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Two factors make the rise of...

The Pew Research Center recently released a study on who in America describes themselves as libertarian while being able to accurately identify what the label actually means. Of the total demographic, 12 percent of respondents who identified as libertarian were white, unsurprisingly the largest demographic population. However, Hispanics self-identified as libertarian at almost the same rate, 11 percent. By comparison, only three percent of blacks fell into the same category (other demographics were not included in the final results). Libertarians also tend to be young; Millennials are the largest group of libertarians, with the...

    The California Legislatures Latino Caucus boasts on its website that its mission is to identify, promote and advocate on behalf of the professional, educational, social, political and cultural interests of the Latino community. Who can argue with that? So after winning a seat to the Assembly in 2012 representing northern San Diego County, Rocky Chvez decided to sign up and see what he can contribute. Education tops the groups legislative priority list, and it tops Chvezs also. He spent years operating a charter school. I said, Hey, so when do we meet and how does this happen?, Chvez said in...

    The FBI investigates the use of politiqueras in Valley elections. In the deeply Democratic Rio Grande Valley, the primary is the election that matters. And in local races like county commissioner and district attorney a sliver of votes can make a difference between winning and losing the election. Many times, paid campaign workers called politiqueras deliver the votes that put a candidate over the top. Politiqueraswho are paid to turn out voters, especially in low-income neighborhoods and coloniashave been part of elections in the Rio Grande Valley for decades.

    Actress Maria Conchita Alonso loses acting job for supporting tea party January 19, 2014 by Michael Dorstewitz When a famed Cuban-born singer/songwriter/actress openly supported a California tea party gubernatorial candidate, the San Francisco Latino community responded much as one might expect with derision instead of acceptance. Maria Conchita Alonso appeared with Assemblyman Tim Donnelly in a campaign ad promoting his bid for the GOP nomination. She added a Spanish translation and a little humor to Donnellys spiel, saying: Donnellys conservative views include a strong opposition to illegal immigration. He was once associated with the Minuteman Project, a group that...

    The problems, glitches, etc. with Healthcare.gov were well-known and well-documented. Now, attention has shifted to the issues with CuidadoDeSalud.gov, the Spanish-language version of the sitenamely, that the website is so poorly translated that native Spanish speakers cannot decipher it without help. The website launched two months behind schedule, and is riddled with grammatical errors and clumsy wording. Even Obamacare cheerleaders navigators have described the language as "Spanglish." When you get into the details of the plans, its not all written in Spanish. Its written in Spanglish, so we end up having to translate it for them, said Adrian Madriz,...

    You would think Hempstead Middle school principal Amy Lacey was asking to see the papers of the 50% Hispanic students at her school as this story is now getting national attention. But all she did was announce that students can not speak Spanish while in class to avoid disruption. The students make it sound like horrible discrimination and apparently the school district agrees. She has been placed on paid administrative leave and the school district is bending over backwards to apologize for the principals actions. But some residents of Hempstead (outside of Houston) agree with the principal according to KHOU11:

    **SNIP** Whites lost their No. 1 status to Latinos in 19 suburban districts spread across the six-county area of Cook, DuPage, Will, Lake, Kane and McHenry. Blacks were displaced by Latinos as the leading group in nine other districts, including the city of Chicago. This years school report card shows that minorities make up nearly half the students in Illinois public schools. And, of those minorities, Hispanic students have eclipsed blacks over the last 10 years as the largest minority, 24 percent.
