The New York Times opines that Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are not real Latinos. “Real Hispanics”… like “real Blacks” and “real gays” are leftists who vote in lockstep with the Democrat Party.
Neither Mr. Cruz nor Mr. Rubio meets conventional expectations of how Latino politicians are supposed to behave.
Neither of these candidates claims to speak for the Hispanic population or derive a crucial portion of their support from Hispanics, and neither bases much of his political identity on being a Latino.
In other words, they are not steeped in leftist identity politics like Democrats Jose Serrano, Luis Guttierez, or Loretta and Linda Sanchez — the Duras sisters of the US Congress.
Curious, isn’t it, that the only minority figures that the old leftist white people who run the media recognize as “legitimate” representatives of their communities are those whose politics align precisely with those of the old leftist white people who run the media.
Anyway, doing taxes has put me in a bad mood, so I am going to kickback with some Rifftrax. In lieu of content, please accept this song about suicide by a gay dude that somehow manages not to suck.
