The Democrats are cheering about the midterm elections because the “red wave” didn’t happen.
That means the Democrats are less likely to learn any lessons from election night.
And a Hollywood actor insulted voters with one unbelievable statement.
Over the past few years, John Leguizamo has stepped forward as one of the most outspoken leftist actors in Hollywood.
The election of Donald Trump in 2016 made many performers out themselves as far-left.
And Leguizamo has been heavily critical of Republicans, particularly Hispanic Republicans.
After Hispanic voters in Florida went GOP in 2020, Leguizamo said they were like “roaches for Raid.”
The View co-host Sunny Hostin made the same despicable analogy recently when discussing suburban women who vote for the pro-life Republican Party.
Ironically, Hostin herself is a pro-life Catholic, but women who vote the way she thinks are roaches, which makes absolutely no sense.
And Leguizamo showed up on The View, teaming up with the insufferable Hostin to disparage Hispanic voters who went Republican.
Leguizamo effectively said that Latino voters were too dumb not to fall for political messaging from Republicans.
Hostin claimed, “I think what [Republicans] do is that they use fear tactics towards Central Americans, South Americans, Cubans…They start with the communism; they start with the socialism.”
Leguizamo nodded along, adding, “Trigger words. Socialism. Yeah. Yeah.”
Hostin added, “But they’re not really addressing the issues that Latinos face.”
This shows the arrogance of Democrats like Hostin.
She has no clue which issues are important to Hispanic voters.
For instance, in South Texas, Latinos swung heavily toward the Republican Party in 2020 because many of them work in the oil and gas industry, and Biden and the Democrats have promised to do away with fossil fuels.
It seems like that would be a sound reason for Hispanics to vote Republican.
Leguizamo continued, “[W]e’re not as media-savvy maybe as we should be. You know what I mean? As a group. So trigger words get us.”
When far-left politicians like Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a self-described Democratic socialist, start openly talking about socialist policies obliquely or overtly, voters rightly conclude that is the direction Democrats want to go.
That doesn’t even broach the radical social issues that are repellent to most Latinos, such as the insistence on using the term “Latinx” despite the fact the term has close to zero support; only far-left academics use the term.
But the celebrity class thinks it knows better than the voters.
That’s why leftists are attempting to monopolize the message to Hispanic voters.
“[C]onservative Cuban American lawmakers have launched a battle over the purchase of 18 influential Hispanic radio stations by a group with progressive ties…The Latino Media Network’s deal for the TelevisaUnivision stations could transform a large portion of the U.S. Latino media landscape…In a letter to the Federal Communications Commission, which must still approve the acquisition, U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and other lawmakers wrote the group ‘led by partisan operatives with zero experience in broadcasting’ may work to silence certain political viewpoints.”
Democrats are desperate to stop Latinos from trending Republican.
