I recently pointed out that Hillary Clinton/ the MSM is fine with the long-established reality of Mexican meddling in our election (on her behalf), while freaking out at unproved allegations of Russia meddling (by revealing things she actually did). Since then, a Mexican governor has meddled further—and that’s fine with the New York Times Editorial Board, because it wants to Elect A New People and Mexicans matter more than Anglos.

Mexican governor meddles in California at a conference where “Everybody Is Against Trump”

silvanoThe Los Angeles-based La Opinión just reported on the 11th annual COFEM leadership conference held in Lynwood, California. COFEM is the Consejo de Federaciones Mexicanas [“the Council of Mexican Federations in North America”]. According to the English portion of its website, COFEM is

[A] community-based umbrella organization comprised of groups of people who share ideas and participate in efforts to create opportunities for Latino immigrants in North America, specifically in California. [These groups] have the opportunity to wield significant political power…
Just what American-Californians need!

La Opinión’s headline: Todos contra Trump en la conferencia de COFEM [“Everybody Against Trump at the COFEM Conference”], by Jorge Luis Macias, October 8, 2016:

…. community and political leaders stressed the impending “crucial” moment of the presidential election, November 8th….
One of these “leaders” was none other than the governor of the Mexican state of Michoacán, Silvano Aureoles. He described Trump as a demente [“lunatic, crazy person”].

This is a sitting Mexican governorvisiting our countrycalling the candidate of one of our major political parties a crazy person!

What if an American governor went to Mexico during an election and called a major candidate a lunatic?

And there’s more:

Aureoles asked Mexicans and Central Americans to reject “the offensive commentaries that attempt to deteriorate the links that unite Mexico and the U.S.”
What kind of “links” is he referring to? The Grand Larceny of illegal immigration?

And what does Governor Aureoles want his listeners to do about that “demente” candidate?

"I invite you (plural) then, to not vote for someone who suffers from dementia."
This is just another example Mexican meddling in our election. Hillary won’t complain about it. But why won’t the GOP Leadership?

Mexican Music Stars Slam Trump (Who Asked Them?)

La Opinión also just ran Cómo ayudan a Hillary Clinton los íconos de la cultura Mexicana, [“How Icons of Mexican Culture Help Hillary Clinton”] (by Juan Mesa, October 21, 2016):

The intersection between politics and popular culture is not news, but this year it acquires special importance due to the anti-Mexican tone of Donald Trump.
Of course, “anti-Mexican” means Trump dares to want to control the southern border, protect American workers and deport illegal alien criminals. That is apparently “anti-Mexican.”

Are Mexico's efforts to control it's own southern border caused by "anti-Guatemelan" bigotry?

Morrero’s La Opinión article cites three Mexican musical acts inciting hatred against Donald Trump and working to support Hillary Clinton:

  1. Vicente Fernandez, a major Mexican singer who recently recorded a pro-Hillary song and met with her after the last debate. He performed at the 2000 GOP convention as part of the ludicrous Dubya-era quest to pull in more Hispanic voters.
  2. Los Tigres del Norte—a Mexican group which has resided in the U.S. for decades. All but one of its five members are now dual U.S.-Mexican citizens. The Reconquista anthem “Somos mas Americanos” is one of their songs.
Some of the members of Los Tigres del Norte  went to Las Vegas “to support the workers and activists in protests in front of the Hotel Trump” and to spend time with Hillary after the debate. La Opinión interviewed Tigres founder Jorge Hernandez, who said that “It’s so they know that we have dignity.” Hernandez wouldn’t even refer to Trump by name, calling him instead “that personage.” Says dual citizen Hernandez “We cannot permit that personage to be elected” [Far more radical than Trump’s refusal to accept voter fraud]. We need all Latinos to exercise our rights and vote. We have to be united because we feel very offended by that personage.”
  1. Lilia Downs. This Mexican singer is the daughter of an American anthropologist father and a Mixtec Indian mother. She grew up in both countries and speaks English without a foreign accent. (Click here and here for English-language interviews with Lila Downs.)
Downs performed a Reconquista song with Los Tigres del Norte in a 2013 U.S. taxpayer-supported (!) concert at the National Mall. Her contribution to the Mexican Musical Movement Contra Trump is the release of her new song El Demagogo (“The Demagogue”), available in both Spanish and English versions. Click here for her song’s English version, here for Spanish. Click here for a video of Lila Downs singing the song on the Tijuana-San Diego border at the Rise Up as One rally.

Lyrics:

…There’s a blue-eyed devil man thinks he’s king of the world

He’s a bully a salesman

Selling fear and hate

Who do you think you are?

He plays us with his hate

Turns man against man

But it’s really not a game….

He’s the symbol of the monster we no longer want to be

What we used to be

 The earth trembles with these names  

Mussolini Adolph Hitler Pinochet

No respect for woman

No respect for race

No respect for anything that lives the human race

But he cannot buy our soul….

Subtle, isn’t it?

The New York Times Editorial Board Votes For Hispanics, Against Anglos

votarspanishThe New York Times, also known as Carlos Slim’s blog, published an editorial entitled, “¡A votar! Latino Voters Can Make a Difference [October 1, 2016] in both English and Spanish.

From the English version:

If ever there was a year for Latinos in the United States to exercise their right to vote, 2016 is it.

Donald Trump, the Republican nominee, has made “Build a wall!” and deporting 11 million people central promises of his presidential campaign. At his rallies, Latino immigrants are cast as an invasion that needs to be stopped because it is transforming the face of America too profoundly, too quickly.

The implicit point of his campaign theme — “Make America Great Again” — is that America was great when it was a less diverse nation and that resurrecting that era will require drastic measures. While this has resonated with some white Americans, disaffected by social changes and an uneven economic recovery, it has offended and frightened Latinos, one of the fastest-growing segments of the electorate.

But why should Latinos be offended in Trump’s proposals—if they’re loyal to America and want what’s best for it? (I speak here as the husband of a Mexican wife and father of dual-nationality children).

Latinos who have another agenda – such as Open Borders, Hispanicizing the U.S., who cares what they think?

The New York Times Editorial Board continues:

Whether stoking xenophobia turns out to be a genius or a disastrous move by a presidential candidate who has defied all the laws of political gravity will depend on how many of the 27 million eligible Hispanic voters turn out in November.

In a tight race, a resounding Latino showing could flip battleground states for the Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton, and change how political parties perceive and engage with Hispanic voters in the future. That would affirm that Latinos are shaping the destiny of a nation that has always become stronger by embracing newcomers.

Aren’t white Anglos still the majority? Do they have any voice in the “destiny” of the “nation”?

When did we vote for all this?
