While White American voters supported Trump at a rate of 56%, Cuban American voters went for the Republican candidate at a rate of 58%--or perhaps even higher.
Gosh? What could possibly account for this phenomenon?
Well, if the quip you had to be there applies anywhere, its in explaining the voting habits of Americans of Cuban heritage. By there I mean in a communist country—but not as a tourist! Not like the tens of thousands of (mostly pinko) Americans whove been visiting Cuba and filling the coffers of Cubas terror-sponsoring Stalinist rulers the past few years, thanks to Obama.
No, instead I mean as a subject of a communist nations rulers. Voting Republican then becomes a reflex, an instinct—and one that drives liberals absolutely apoplectic.
Lets take a perfectly representative liberal Democrat: Michael Moore. And if you think Moore is not representative of todays Democrat party, recall that their Convention in 2004 a smirking Michael Moore was feted by the Democrat party as their honored guest. He sat in a place of honor right next to Jimmy Carter. Remember? :
Cuban-Americans, wrote this honored guest of the Democrat party in his book Downsize This, are responsible for sleaze and influence-peddling in American politics. In every incident of national torment that has deflated our country for the past three decades, Cuban exiles are always present and involved.
Can you imagine the media uproar if a prominent Trump-supporting celebrity—say Jon Voight or Ted Nugent-- denounced Mexican-Americans en masse for tormenting our country with sleaze? Wed never hear the end of it.
Truly disgusting! was how NBCs Bryant Gumbel characterized the Cuban-Americans who were (peace fully) protesting the joint shanghaiing of Elian Gonzalez by the Clinton Administration and Castro regime. Yet we search in utter vain for the slightest hint by Gumbel (or any mainstream media pundit) that any demonstration by Black Lives Matter might hint at disgusting behavior, despite the wholesale looting and vicious beatings that always characterize them.
A few years ago Georgetown professor Norman Birnbaum, who also served as an advisor to three Democratic presidential candidates and who writes for The Daily Beast, denounced Miami-Cubans as a truly reprehensible! ethnic group. Back in 2007, one of Americas most influential newspapers, the Washington Post, one that habitually endorses Democrats, ran a cartoon celebrating Cuban-Americans expulsion from the U.S. en masse. No tongue in cheek whatsoever was evident.
Ah! But all this sleaze and influence-peddling takes talent, amigos! Around our domino tables we snicker derisively at those bumbling Trilateralists. Between sips of our mojitos, we guffaw and slap our thighs at the incompetence of the Bilderbergers and Rothschilds. We Cuban-Americans are the Illuminati to beat all Illuminati, the slickest of the slick! We watch Godfather II and snort scornfully. That was a chump operation Mikey Corleone pulled on Nevada Senator Geary with that dead prostitute. We woulda had him in our pocket for half the trouble
We watch Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and direct our boos and hisses at Jimmy Stewart. What a fuddy-duddy.
Oh…and by the way. In this columns title I put quotation marks around the term white, for a reason. Look Im not the one who started classifying Americans by ethnicity with regards to their voting habits, etc. Government and media busybodies (mostly liberals) started the practice. OK, fine. Its a modern fact of life. So lets live with it.
Im just saying if they insist on doing this type of thing for political polls, for the government census, for political discussions, etcthen at least do it accurately.
Instead of constantly employing the cumbersome term (from a wordsmith perspective ) Non-Cuban-Hispanics to constantly qualify the exasperating (to liberals) political and social habits of Cuban-Americaninstead of this literary clumsinesswhy not simply dump Cuban-Americans from the Hispanic or Latino classification altogether?
To quote the late Joan Rivers, Can we talk?
(WARNING! If youre offended by facts about ethnicity seek a safe space NOW!)
White used to be synonymous with Caucasian, also meaning European. Spain is a nation in Europe comprising most of the Iberian Peninsula which was known as Hispania when part of the Roman Empire. This area of Europe was originally peopled mostly by Celtic tribes.
Unlike the rest of what came to be known as Latin America, when Columbus landed Cuba had a tiny indigenous population. Most of these hapless Native Americans quickly perished, mostly from disease also from brutalities by the settlers. So by the 1700 Cuba was populated overwhelmingly by Spaniards. Later African slaves were brought in to work the sugar plantations. But according to the UN in 1957 Cubas population was 71 % white.
Oh, I know…I know….For the crime of presenting these historical facts Im about to be denounced as a racist. I can sense it. So here Ill turn over the floor to a Marxist Mexican (that should cover most of the bases):
Cuba has a tremendous advantage in national integration over other Latin American countries because of a largely homogeneous white Spanish immigrant base, wrote UN economist (and Mexican Marxist) Juan Noyola who in 1960 was invited to Cuba by the islands Minister of Economics Che Guevara. Cubas smaller Negro population is also culturally integrated. Those feudal modes of labor that exist in the rest of Latin America, dont exist in Cuba. The Cuban campesino does not resemble the one in the rest of Latin America. The Cuban campesino, in all respects, is a modern man. They have an educational level and a familiarity with modern methods unseen in the rest of Latin America.
Bottom line: given all the above factors, when it comes to deplorable behavior and causing liberal heads to explode, Cuban-Americans have long been to quote Freddie Mercury—The Champion Deplorables of the World!
Most Cubans in America are “white”.
Yes, they’re white: Spaniards who took a detour into Cuba for a couple of generations.
It has not been mentioned, but the Naturalized Haitians voted against the bitch by voting for Trump also. I also voted against the bitch by voting for Trump. In closing, I will add that for the good of the Country, the bitch needs her neck stretched, not a Pardon.
A Cuban lady I once worked with had a personal dislike for Mexicans. She always referred to them as “Los Indios”...I believe it translated as “Indians”.
I was surprised to see this also. I must be confused about the location of Spain and it’s place in european history. Who knew?
The democrats think that Hispanics are a monolith. They think Cuban American and Mexican American have similar traits and are going to vote the same. Well they are wrong. Cubans find almost no similarity between themselves and Mexicans. And you can find that Puerto Ricans really hate being called Mexican.
Just like its stupid to group someone from Japan, China, Western Russia and India all together as Asians. Hispanics are very different depending on their country of origin, their ethnic background (From Brazil are you ethnically African, German, Indian or Portuguese) and how you came to the US. Carmen Miranda has nothing to do with Gisele or Pele. And they all called themselves Brazilian.
Cuban-Americans have been reliably Republican for a very long time. This was no surprise to anyone familiar with Florida politics. It’s hilarious how naive the Hellary campaign was, they thought that they had Florida sewn up because of “hispanics”.
Cuban Americans can smell a totalitarian at 400 paces... it’s an honor they’re with us.
Folks, be sure to keyword-tag stories like this one “trumpwinsagain” so the growing collection of “Trump Wins... Again” stories (http://freerepublic.com/tag/trumpwinsagain/index) is kept up to date
Mark Cuban is still a jerk off.
And that includes Cruz and Rubio.
I don’t think the 56% is correct for the white vote (not that it matters), more like 61%, based on my spreadsheet which factors how the minorities voted. Either way, once again the Republicans got the CUBAN VOTE!!! ...which has to gnaw at Democrats to no end.
Could it be that Obama unilaterally recognizing the Castro regime damaged Democrat inroads with the Cuban community here?
“The surname “Cuban” was shortened from “Chabenisky” when his Russian grandparents landed on Ellis Island.”
The bulk of Cubans coming here especially in the early days were upper and middle class escaping from Castro’s Soviet oriented socialism. Decades later they were joined by the “Marielitos” kicked out of Cuba as undesirables. The younger generation tends to vote more liberal than their parents. Don’t count on a continuing R trend as the old folks die off.
Someone should make a spreadsheet for this sh!t. Too confusing to know when an Hispanic is white and when they aren’t... Although I suspect it looks something like good behavior=Oppressed Hispanic/Latino, bad behavior = oppressor white.
That figure is based on exit poling and I just wonder how many black Trump supporters would answer "Trump" when asked who they voted for. The left has done their vilification work too well.
