Media Gets It Wrong: Biden’s Culture War Is Causing Hispanic Families To Flee The Democrat Party

AMAC Exclusive

bidenEven top Democrat political experts are starting to push back on the false media narrative that the Biden administration is just a boring return to normal. Andrew Sullivan, a popular Democrat pundit, is lambasting Biden and the Democrats for going on a “woke rampage.”

Sullivan, a former editor of the liberal New Republic, called out Mr. Biden for pursuing an agenda that “alienates and inflames his moderate supporters and snubs practices that most Americans take as common sense.” He expanded:

“I want Biden to succeed. I want Republicans to moderate. I want to lower the temperature. I want to emphasize those policies that really do bring us closer together, even though many may still freely dissent. Biden says he wants to as well. But none of that can or will happen if the president fuels the culture war this aggressively, this crudely, and this soon.”

Meanwhile, as noted in an April 1 article, top Democrat data scientist David Shor fears that the Biden White House’s culture war will result in millions of Hispanic Americans fleeing the party of critical race theory, wokeness, and socialism. In an interview with New York Magazine that even former President Barack Obama lauded concerning how Democrats “came up short” in the 2020 election, David Shor notes that the problem is how far left “white liberals” have gone and how their extremism is alienating Hispanics:

“[W]e’ve ended up in a situation where white liberals are more left wing than Black and Hispanic Democrats on pretty much every issue: taxes, health care, policing, and even on racial issues or various measures of ‘racial resentment.’ So as white liberals increasingly define the party’s image and messaging, that’s going to turn off nonwhite conservative Democrats and push them against us.”

While Sullivan is offering his honest assessment of the opening days of the Biden presidency and Shor is candidly frightened for the future of the Democrat Party, leftist corporate media organizations have been trying to cover for Mr. Biden, pretending that his administration is not even participating in the culture war. The Washington Post recently published an opinion piece arguing that “Joe Biden is kryptonite to the culture war.” The title of one New York Times op-ed reads: “Biden wants no part of the culture war the G.O.P. loves.” Politico reports that “White House advisers and Biden aides insist they’re unbothered by the culture-wars-du-jour…They respond with a snore.”

A “snore”? Since day one, the Biden White House has embarked on a radical crusade to “transform” America.

In less than three months, the Biden administration has directed American taxpayer dollars to fund foreign abortions, weakened religious freedom protections for churches and businesses, undermined faith-based adoption, and moved to abolish girls’ sports, while also requiring doctors to perform unalterable gender-transition surgeries on children. Biden has reimposed divisive critical race theory training on federal employees. Biden recently started laying the groundwork for an oppressive new regulation to restrict the development of single-family homes, a clear attack on suburban America. He has ushered in open border policies which have resulted in a crisis on the southern border. He has spearheaded defective legislation that will make it more dangerous for police officers to keep Americans safe. In addition, Biden has engaged in a bizarre attack on the American founding by abolishing the President’s 1776 Commission, a council of esteemed historians, scholars, and leaders tasked with promoting unity by restoring appreciation for the principles of the Declaration of Independence

The media may be downplaying the significance of these actions in an effort to minimize their political impact. But there is no denying the fact that Americans are noticing Democrats’ cultural radicalism–and it is turning off Hispanics in particular in remarkable numbers.

In 2020, President Trump received more votes than he did in 2016 in 78 of the nation’s 100 majority-Hispanic counties. In Texas, President Trump increased his overall vote count in areas where Hispanics comprise at least 80% of the population by 10 points, winning 5 Hispanic heavy counties after losing all 18 of them in 2016. Along the border, President Trump won 52% of the vote in deep blue Zapata County, becoming the first Republican presidential candidate since Reconstruction to carry the county. He also improved upon his 2016 vote count in Rio Grande Valley counties overall by 12 points, increasing his vote totals in 96% Hispanic Starr County by 55 points, in Hidalgo County by 23 points, in Cameron County by 19 points, and in El Paso County by 9 points. In Florida, President Trump did 23 points better than in 2016 in Miami-Dade, the state’s largest county with the largest Hispanic population, accounting for 75% of his net vote gain in the entire state. Overall, President Trump won 55% of Florida’s Cuban-American vote and a full 15% of Cuban-Americans who voted for Clinton in 2016 switched their votes to President Trump in 2020. After receiving the endorsement of the Governor of Puerto Rico, President Trump did 11 points better than in 2016 in Florida’s Osceola County, which has the largest Puerto Rican population in the mainland United States. In Doral, Florida, which has the highest Venezuelan-born population in America, President Trump improved upon his 2016 vote count by 41%, winning the city. Nationally, President Trump did better with Hispanics by 8 points compared to 2016, increasing his vote count in Hispanic precincts all over the nation, including a 126% increase in Paterson county, New Jersey, a 51% increase in Clark, Nevada, a 64% increase in Maricopa, Arizona, and a 38% increase in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Even in socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s district in New York, President Trump increased his 2016 vote count by 9 points.

Many hardcore Democrats and their media allies have blamed this on what they call an “alarming amount of misinformation targeted to Latino communities prior to the election,” as one ABC News article put it. After all, how could President Trump, who ran against illegal immigration, make massive inroads with the Hispanic American community?

But more serious-minded political experts like Shor are starting to dismiss that fallacy and understand that the problem the party faces is “more fundamental,” as Shor puts it. Rather, the left-wing culture war being waged by white liberal Democrats is costing them support. Shor notes that:

“[I]f you look at the concrete questions, white liberals are to the left of Hispanic Democrats, but also of Black Democrats, on defunding the police and those ideological questions about the source of racial inequity… Hispanic conservatives don’t actually buy into a lot of these intellectual theories of racism. They often have a very different conception of how to help the Black or Hispanic community than liberals do. And I don’t think we can buy our way out of this trade-off. Most voters are not liberals. If we polarize the electorate on ideology — or if nationally prominent Democrats raise the salience of issues that polarize the electorate on ideology — we’re going to lose a lot of votes.”

The problem for Democrats going forward is that while waging their culture war, they have also done nothing to address the real issues of concern to Hispanic Americans. One recent example is the fact that Democrat cancel culture activists are still calling for a boycott of the largest Hispanic owned food company in America, Goya Foods, after the CEO of the company praised President Trump nearly a year ago.

But there are even deeper disconnects between the ideology of white Democrat elites and Hispanic Americans. For instance, despite the fact that the overwhelming majority of Hispanics identify as working-class Americans, Democrats speak to them as “LatinX” voters, though 90% of Hispanics dislike the term and only 3% of Hispanics even use it. Millions of Hispanic Americans came to America to get away from the horrors of socialism and communism, but in his campaign Biden linked arms with socialist Bernie Sanders embracing a radical “unity” plan. In office, the Biden administration has already allowed funding to flow to the communist regime in Cuba and is reportedly considering removing some sanctions on the Maduro regime in Venezuela.

Though a majority of Hispanics do not support decriminalizing border crossings, white liberals in the Democrat Party are rallying around the idea. Tens of thousands of Hispanic Americans work high-paying union oil and gas jobs, yet Biden has moved to “transition” America away from oil and embrace the socialist Green New Deal. Large majorities of Hispanics want schools and churches to be reopened, and an end to crippling shutdowns that have laid off tens of thousands of blue-collar Hispanic workers.  Biden has called such re-openings “neanderthal thinking.”

Like all Americans, Hispanic Americans want good schools, safe neighborhoods, and strong families, but white liberal elites are waging open attacks on each of these goals. Over 70% of Hispanics support school choice; nonetheless Biden has vowed to close down charter schools and “oppose any and all voucher and neo-voucher programs such as Education Savings Accounts and Tax-credit Scholarship programs.” Nearly 60% of Hispanics oppose defunding the police, but numerous Democrat run cities have moved to cut millions or even billions of dollars out of law enforcement budgets. More than two thirds of Hispanic voters support voter ID laws, yet Biden and the Democrats are right now attempting to jam through legislation that would weaken voter ID laws across the country, opening the floodgates for fraud. Hispanic Americans are the only ethnicity of which a majority believes abortion should be abolished in most or all cases. But Biden has implemented the most anti-life agenda of any American President as he has threatened to repeal the Hyde amendment and moved quickly to provide taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood and the United Nations Population Fund, which has participated in the funding of coerced abortions and sterilizations around the world.

On virtually every issue, the Democrat Party’s all out declaration of war on American culture, law enforcement, the nuclear family, religious freedom, and the right to life is fundamentally at odds with the preferences and values of millions of Hispanic American families.

Biden and his media defenders ignore this undeniable political reality at their peril.

I am Puerto Rican American and had never voted in my life until 2020. I went through the trouble of getting a Real ID, and registering to vote in a Blue state to vote for Trump, even though I knew he would lose the state. Biden sometimes tells the truth. Latinos aren’t a one dimensional voting block like the blacks. I think the Democrats are making a huge strategic mistake, trying to flood the country with Mexicans. They just might find these people wont vote for them on the issues. They should propose good policy legislation, that doesn’t have to be disguised with a fake name to trick people to support it.

The Democratic party seems to be returning to their roots of racism, KKK and Jim Crow. This is how they started and it seems to be where they are returning.

All of our Hispanic friends in Texas (either naturalized or born there) do not like this flood of illegals. Many have turned from the Democrat Party to Republicans as they realize the foundational values of each party. The values of the left do not reflect their vslues, and are in fact antithesis.

The Democrats simply do not understand that the Hispanic community are family oriented. There is a premium on being masculine (think of machismo), many are Catholic and sincerely pro-life. They ignore who Hispanics really are and think that all these people coming across our border from El Salvador, Guatemala, etc. will be so grateful that Biden and his administration allowed them to come, that they will vote Democrat. The Democrats are foolish. Plus those people from Communist or Socialist countries see what is happening here! The Democrats’ agenda will back fire on them. The same is true of the Black vote. Democrats believe their own lies.

That is part of it, there is also the national media being little more than the propaganda arm for the Democratic Party. Can also throw in there the almost complete left-wing take-over of the public education system (you want continued power – you indoctrinate the captured audiences of public schooling, the Democrats learned this decades ago). There’s lots of reasons why this continues but a big one is that the Republican lacked the spine (over all these years) to fight back (ridiculous notions of standing back and that the Democrats will overreach and eat themselves never pan out)

What the left is doing is slowly depopulating the world. Abortions, allowing children to have transgender operations. Saying that there’s no difference between men or women. The elite is scared to death that earth is not going to survive long enough for them to find another source to carry on their their lives. If they can control the mass integration they can control the population. As I have said do not believe anyone or thing till you research the message your self. There are many books about the control of the population.

The Joe Biden Democratic Agenda is a form of hate and jealousy of the progress made in the Donald Trump Administration without acknowledging that most of our this country’s voters have a heart to keep The United States of America as founded.
Most of the Democratic Representation that are sent to Washington D. C. seem to elevated their personal status to a “King” or “Queen” when proposing or discussing legislation.
This current group of Republican Legislators are the first I have seen stick together with those of us who sent to them be “Our Voice”.
There is very little understanding that the common voter can glean from the language of the laws being debated.
Someone in all of this “Garble” called “Bills”, should break down every item to a single vote.

Don’t worry your pretty little head, Danny, his rich donors, Wall Street, Tech, corporate, will ALL be exempt from any new taxes he proposes. That’s why they supported him 95% during the election. They knew he would protect their wealth so they could continue to make their donations. Any taxes and fees he proposes will all go straight to the ‘little’ guy who has to work for a living through gas taxes and inflation on basic necessities.

Corporations never pay higher taxes! They pass the cost along to the consumer. Period.

It may be touted in the media about this or that tax hike, but Corps are in the business of making money and will find every which way to negate a tax increase. WE all end up paying for this big lie.

Let’s just hope the radical Demsheviks implode before they do too much more damage to our country. The real mainstream Democrats should just kick these libtard idiots out of their party and restore the Democratic Party to its proper place in our political system where it truly represents its constituency and not the fringe radical elements who have hijacked the Party to impose their extreme ideology.
 
Hopefully, the 2022 midterm elections will sound the death knell to the insanity we are currently being subjected to. If the Republican Party gains a majority in either the House or Senate (hopefully BOTH), the nonsense legislation coming out of Congress will cease. Also, hopefully, in 2024 America’s First Illegitimate President will be sent packing.

This is a great point. The moderate (sane) democrats need to leave the demented platform currently supported and either become Republicans or overthrow the idiots running their party. I believe Pelosi and Schumer know they are on the wrong but they are old and have been paid off by China so cannot change their plan. Another example of the need to have term limits.

Once they pass H R 1 and S 1, ALL hope of ever having a free and fair election will be gone. They are deliberately misnamed the “For the People Act(s)” when they are actually intended to be the “Permanent Democrat Incumbency Act(s)”. They are written, and designed, to enshrine all the illicit practices used in the 2020 election to commit fraud into permanent law in every state. That is why they are pushing so hard and fast to get them passed.
Read the bills to see what is in store for all future elections nationwide. Just a few of the highlights are: outlawing ALL voter ID laws on the books in the states, no signature verification allowed, universally accepting ballot harvesting, taxpayer funding of campaigns of incumbents, lowering voting age to 16, automatic voter registration through multiple venues, (DMV, welfare, student) resulting in more than one registration for the same person, universal unsolicited mail-in ballots to every registered voter, living or not, eligible/legal or not, multiple registrations or not (a ballot will be sent for EVERY registration resulting in individual voters receiving, and being able to submit, multiple ballots). These are just a few of the onerous regulations they intend to codify into law, overriding the Constitutional mandate that the States have the exclusive right to determine the methods for conducting the elections in their States.
Even former POTUS, Jimmy Carter and the New York Times, have said universal mail-in ballots are ripe for fraud and are not allowed in almost every other First World country on the planet.

With automatic voter registration, everyone who applies for a driver’s license, will AUTOMATICALLY be registered to vote whether they are eligible or not. I know our DMV here in Reno, NV has definitively said it is “not their job” to determine eligibility. They are REQUIRED to complete a voter registration application for EVERYONE who submits an application for a driver’s license and they are NOT allowed to ask if they’re a citizen or legally entitled to be registered. It would be up to the Secretary of State’s office in each state to reject/cancel any ineligible registrations when they are received in their offices. We KNOW that will NOT happen after the fact so every felon, non-citizen, or underage application will be granted just as intended. The Left doesn’t even care if these people actually vote. They just want an inflated number of names listed as ‘registered voters’ to be able to use to fill out, and cast ballots for, when elections fall short of the number needed for their candidate to be declared the ‘winner’. It’s happened time and again in Washington State, Oregon and California for decades. It’s worked so well for them there for all of these years, they want to make it the norm nationwide.

Thank you for writing an answer Lee that makes so much sense. I know behind every man is a woman. I have stood behind my man who grew up under stalin’s rule in East Germany until he was 18 yo. Although I have worked overseas in places that were horrible and beautiful at the same time when I came home I always deferred to my husband. I will NEVER recognize this current regime (especially those who are behind this atrocity) as being legitimate and believe me when I say I saw it all in the soviet union and the middle east when I was over there in health care. I only say to all the illegal people who come into into this country you are ALL being used and abused by this regime! Even those who wish us harm I can see how they are being used. I am so angry at the “useful idiots” who refuse to see what others can so easily see. People need to read Animal Farm and 1984 before they are pulled off the shelves. Carol

And Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals”, “The Weather Underground Manifesto” and Cloward and Piven’s writings to see very clearly what their intentions have always been and how they are being implemented today. They have dreamed of ‘collapsing the system’ and replacing it as a ‘utopia’ under their rule for decades. They are so close now they can taste it and they are NOT going to let ANYTHING get in their way.
Also, KGB defector, Yuri Bezmenov’s tapes from the ’90s are very informative if you can still find them on YouTube or the internet.
A ‘fictional’ movie, “Arlington Road”, is very chilling in its prescience.

In the last 50 years millions of Democrats have left the Democrat Party because of its views on Abortion and religious freedom. In the 70s Irish American and Italian American voters who were life long Democrats began voting Republican only because Republicans tended to be pro life. As time went by the pro life Democrats were squeezed out of their party and the Democrats became more radical in their views. How any person who respects the dignity of life can stay in the Party of Biden Harris Pelosi and Schumer I dont know. As my grandfather, a NYC Democrat district captain said before he passed away ” I didnt leave the Democrat Party, it left me”
