Skip to comments.California Hispanics Wake Up To Democrats’ Betrayal
Posted on 08/04/2021 1:48:58 PM PDT by Starman417
A recent poll came out from Emerson on the recall of Governor Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, showing a statistically tied race among registered voters, 48 no, 46 yes. While this is a terrible sign for Newsom and the Democrats, this does not shock me, as I have seen a gradual but real shift in the community and the numbers make sense. The most shocking internal in this poll was that Hispanics were the only racial group to overwhelmingly support the recall, and they do by a landslide, 54-41. Black and Asian majorities, in contrast, are supportive of keeping Newsom in office.
One of the key takeaways, when we defeated the racist and divisive Proposition 16 (affirmative action), was our strong support against race-based preferences from Latina females, who worked hard (most times, juggling careers and parental duties), and were concerned about fairness and meritocracy. Especially those with skilled jobs, such as x-ray technicians or lab assistants in professional settings. The last thing they wanted was to be leapfrogged in the hiring and advancement processes by others who are less qualified. But what was noteworthy was that they ignored the ads from the opposition which focused on promoting figures like Gavin Newsom and Kamala Harris and painting the “No on 16” side as racist Trumpers. This hyperbolic ad backfired and ignored the issues and concerns of everyday people.
Fast forward, less than a year later, and support for the recall has grown. Just in March, only 45 percent of Latino voters were supportive of the recall. Now it’s 54 percent. This slow “drip” has been a long time coming. Last year, we saw Trump improve his numbers in this state over his performance in 2016, making major inroads in inner-city Hispanics. The trend was not isolated to Texas and Florida, where Hispanics broke for Republicans for the first time in a century in West Texas, and almost won Miami/Dade outright. This trend was also not isolated to Cubans, but now, Mexicans who have been here for many generations.
I have always asserted the immigration and ICE bogeyman hysteria the left ginned up was going to backfire on the left. After the fearmongering, and subsequently no significant number of deportations except criminals, many Hispanic Californians were oversold the evil of Trump and Republicans and figured out their worst fears didn’t come true. Now, they feel betrayed by the Democrats and it’s showing in the polls and in voter habits.
The overall divisiveness of Democrats has also backfired. Many Hispanics are friends with other races and will not stand for such hatred, especially in a culture that is so family-oriented and loving to their neighbors and community. However, with last year’s obsession by the left on #BlackLivesMatter and this year’s #StopAsianHate, where does that leave the Hispanic community? In the inner cities, divisiveness has existed forever through race and gang wars. There is a way to talk about race that addresses the dangers posed to Hispanics, for example, being disproportionate, many times, to other races and high in raw cases in inner-city environments.
Hispanics, especially, are looking for true criminal justice reform, not empty epithets which is all the Democrats have offered. Talking about the problem is not acceptable when certain Democrats have openly admitted that they perpetuate the homeless problem so they can get elected. God forbid, actually solving or working towards solutions to problems. And certainly reduced sentences, like removing gang enhancements, as District Attorney George Gascon has done, make no sense to the average Latino voter. Reform doesn’t mean disregarding the law, dismissing sentencing requirements and special enhancements, and distorting justice.
But how about everyday life? Growing up around Hispanic families, which adopted this Chinito as their own, involved our special moments and milestones like birthdays, quinceaneras, and even weddings are held in the park or community centers. Newsom’s policies on homelessness deprive many minorities of their right to enjoy these public spaces which are affordable and accessible. Sorry, it’s a little bit of a buzzkill to have your birthday party interrupted by a homeless person shooting up drugs and making loud outbursts in the same space as you on your special day. Newsom appointed George Gascon in San Francisco and ruined that city, and now Angelenos are seeing Los Angeles turn the same way. A trip to Downtown LA will shock you if you haven’t seen it in, say, the last 4 years. The decline is real.
Defund the police doesn’t work with Hispanic families, especially in the inner city. Respect for authority is a fundamental component of Latino culture and Gascon and Newsom’s policies undermine that very foundation. Besides, on a practical level, the police keep some of the most dangerous inner cities safe.
Hispanic families also care about school choice and quality education. Now that public schooling has gotten so partisan and ideologically left, Hispanic parents are rebelling against critical race theory and radical sex education. And many certainly have issues with mandatory vaccinations, when so many have survived with old grandmother remedies. Isn’t it slightly condescending to disregard or throw out natural remedies that have worked for generations? I’ll take that Vicks Vaporub over an injected shot any day.

Any Asian voter continuing to vote Dimm like drones and then complaining about affirmative action can eat s***. Effing FOOLS.

Yeah, only 75% Hispainics might vote Democrat instead of 78%
When I see a legit exit poll that shows that at least 40% of Hispanics have started voting GOP, I’ll believe it.
Are they fed up with the Hate Whites - Critical Race Theory - Racism being pushed by the Democrats? For most of them know that they are the target of this next.
Folks are streaming out of he Big Democratic Cities IN DROVES! Ask the Mask mandates are coming back in them and more lockdowns to come, will we see ones like Detroit Implode?
FYI: Most of them feel like they're the target now.
Hispanics are some of the hardest working God fearing respectable people on earth.
God bless them and welcome to America’s conservative movement.
They are not takers.
“The most shocking internal in this poll was that Hispanics were the only racial group to overwhelmingly support the recall, and they do by a landslide, 54-41.”
Good find. Mexicans resisting the commie democrats is not a new phenomenon.
On May 31, 2020, when Chicago Mayor Groot ordered her racist BLM to attack Mexican neighborhoods and businesses around Chicago, the Mexicans set up street barricades and manned those barricades with individuals carrying AKs. THE BLM racists got their asses kicked and were driven back to their Chicago ghettos. (BTW, the Mexican cops supplied intell about BLM movements and supported their Mexican cohorts with necessary tactical equipment.)
When 54% of California Hispanics vote for Larry Elder, I will be impressed.
The Open Borders Wall Street Journal has been claiming that Hispanics and Asians are "natural" Conservatives since the 1980s.
