Mexican governor meddles in California at a conference where “Everybody Is Against Trump”
The 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 governor—visiting our country—calling the candidate of one of our major political parties a crazy person!
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?
"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.”
Morrero’s La Opinión article cites three Mexican musical acts inciting hatred against Donald Trump and working to support Hillary Clinton:
…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
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.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).
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.
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.Aren’t white Anglos still the majority? Do they have any voice in the “destiny” of the “nation”?
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.
When did we vote for all this?
