This Is What Democrats Think Of Latinos

Contempt from politicians is nothing new for the Latino community. Trump is openly hostile towards Latinos, while the Democrats have sort of always politely listened to our needs, always (exclusively) talking to us about our immigration troubles (but only talk, with no action) and holding our purse when we need to go nuts on the dance floor. But when WikiLeaks recently released to the public more than 19,000 emails hacked from the Democratic National Committee, some showed that the blue party has exercised poor judgement in their attempts to woo Latino voters.

The main email in question is from a third-party document found in the DNC’s email correspondence, in which Latinos are talked about as a brand, instead of, you know, human beings.

The document is fraught with condescending and calculated language directed at how to attract Latino millennial voters. As soon as it became public, people expressed their outrage with the DNC via social media.

Doesn’t sound like these tactics sit well with the people they were targeting.

The creator of this document, Steve Lucero, reached out to the DNC to fund his app designed to attract Latino millennial voters. Rather than turn Lucero away, the DNC kept the conversation going, as if to say, “we agree with what you wrote.” Here’s a closer look at what the democrats were considering in the pursuit of our vote.

Ever “accidentally” read a text that wasn’t meant for you, and turns out to be about you? That’s this feeling.  All the democrats have remember is – “don’t do what Donald Trump is doing” – to win this election. Instead, the guidelines that follow reveal that the DNC might have more in common with Trump than they’ve been telling us.

1. Hispanics are the most brand loyal consumers in the World: Known fact

2. Hispanic brand loyalty is generational: Entire families.

Anyone who’s ever argued about politics with their parents over dinner (or, ahem, ripped a Trump sign out of their uncle’s lawn in the dead of night) knows this is untrue across all cultures.

3. Once a brand loses this loyalty, Hispanics never re-engage: Unforgiving.

When the alternative to the democrats is Donald Trump, a man that calls Latino’s rapists and criminals, you really give us no options. We either don’t vote or we vote for the least racist brand of politicians. Either way, what we feel is alienation, not a lack of forgiveness.

4. If a brand earns this loyalty, Hispanics will always be loyal and influence family and extended family to be loyal: Long term relationship.

5. Hispanics are the most responsive to “story telling”: Brands need to “speak with us”

This is Steve Lucero’s nice way of saying, “Hispanics can’t read. So talk at them.”

This is only a small sample of the document, which you can check out here if you want to see it for yourself. Remember, this wasn’t written by the DNC, but the fact that they had their hand in the cookie jar means they’re accountable for keeping the conversation going.

A Ted Cruz Piñata Exists And People Want One So Bad

A Ted Cruz Piñata Exists And People Want One So Bad

Sen. Ted Cruz has reached peak infamy with a piñata in his honor. People have been turned into piñatas over the years for both good and bad reasons. The Cruz piñata serves as a reminder of the senator’s attempt to flee the brutal Texas winter crisis.

A Texas party store is selling piñatas of Sen. Ted Cruz and people are into it.

Piñatas are always the centerpiece of a fun party and they are even more exciting when they are topical. One party shop in Texas is riding on the wave of local and national news criticizing Sen. Cruz to cash in.

Last week Sen. Cruz was caught boarding a United flight to Cancún, Mexico to escape the winter storm devastating Texas. As millions of Texans survived without water and power, the Cruz family booked a Mexican getaway to warmer weather and reliable electricity.

At first, Sen. Cruz tried to blame his daughters for fleeing Texas as his constituents suffered from the weather. He soon changed his story and claimed that he realized he had made a mistake as soon as he sat down on the plane waiting to depart from Houston.

Finally, after days of speculation, someone came forward and leaked text messages from Sen. Cruz’s wife, Heidi. Turns out, according to the texts, that the Cruz family was actively planning a vacation to avoid the snowstorm. According to the texts, the Cruz family was trying to convince neighbors and friends to join them so they can get out of their freezing house. The criticism amplified when it was reported that the Cruz family left the family dog behind as they fled to Mexico.

People are eager to get their hands on a Sen. Cruz piñata.

Families have been in quarantine for almost a year and they are hitting a wall. Now that the weather is starting to warm up, it is no surprise that people would want to have something to do together outdoors. Seems that a lot of people would like a piñata party to celebrate the bad weather slowly moving out.

There are even some people asking for different people made as piñatas.

You never know unless you ask, right? Never hurts to try to make your own request to better your birthday. It seems that the party store is able to make various different piñatas. The party store made a piñata after Sen. Bernie Sanders’ famous mitten moment at President Biden’s inauguration.

Rep. AOC Opens Up About Being A Sexual Assault Survivor And Capitol Riots In Powerful IG Live

Rep. AOC Opens Up About Being A Sexual Assault Survivor And Capitol Riots In Powerful IG Live

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, one of the most recognizable faces of Congress, used an Instagram Live video to share her experience in the Capitol riot. The congresswoman from New York also shared with the audience that she is a victim of sexual assault.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez finally broke her silence about her experience during the Capitol riot.

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez was in the Capitol on Jan. 6 when a group of angry far-right extremists stormed the building. The Congress was in the process of certifying the election results to certify President Joe Biden’s victory. In the chaos, people died and members of Congress were rushed to secure locations to keep everyone safe.

There has been a lot of chatter that some Republican members of Congress are responsible for the attack. Some members of Congress have accused colleagues of giving rioters tours the day before the attack and two senators are facing calls to resign or expulsion over their connection. Sen. Josh Hawley and Sen. Ted Cruz are facing sustained nad bipartisan calls to resign after appearing to encourage the insurrection on Jan. 6.

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez openly shared that she is a survivor of sexual assault. The moment comes at the beginning of the video as he breaks down the way some of her colleagues have talked about the riot.

“They’re trying to tell us to forget about what happened. They’re trying to tell us that it wasn’t a big deal. They’re trying to tell us to move on without an accountability, without any truth telling, or without actually confronting the extreme damage, physical harm, loss of life, and trauma that was inflicted on, not just me as a person, not just other people as individuals, but on all of us as a collective and on many other people,” Rep. Ocasio-Cortez says in the IG Live. “We cannot move on without accountability. We cannot heal without accountability. So, all of these people who want to tell us to move on are doing so at their own convenience.”

AOC highlighted how these tactics and this rhetoric is similar to that of an abuser. She calls out those using this rhetoric as hiding from what they did for their own convenience and how it something she has heard before.

“I’m a survivor of sexual assault and I haven’t told many people that in my life,” Rep. Ocasio-Cortez says as her voice cracks and she tears up. “When we go through trauma, trauma compounds on each other and so whether you have a neglectful parent or whether you have someone who was verbally abuse towards you. Whether you are a survivor of abuse, whether you experience any sort of trauma in your life, small to large, these episodes can compound on one another.”

During that moment, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez hid in a colleagues office and feared for her life. In a previous Instagram Live video, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez spoke about how she had a moment when she feared for her life but could not say anything due to security issues. Her latest IG Live is open and free to discuss what happened and it is a terrifying ordeal.

At first, AOC took shelter in her office and had to hide in the bathroom as the attackers broke into her office.

“I just hear these yells of ‘WHERE IS SHE? WHERE IS SHE?’” Rep. Ocasio-Cortez recalls. “This was the moment where I thought everything was over. I thought I was going to die.”

“I felt that if this was the journey my life was taking, I felt that things were going to be okay — and that I had fulfilled my purpose,” Rep. AOC said through tears.

According to AOC, her legislative director Geraldo Bonilla-Chavez, told her to come out of the bathroom and that there was a Capitol police officer there who secured her office. Yet, something seemed off so the two fled to get to another secure location. That’s when they ended up in Rep. Katie Porter’s office.

This is when AOC changed into sneakers and gym clothes so she could run and blend if she had to. She continues to say that a real split between Democrats and Republicans has led to an environment of fear and that on the day of the insurrection, she never felt sully safe or secured.
