Post-SOTU, Rubio Derangement Syndrome now at pandemic levels

Rubio Derangement Syndrome

Rubio

If there’s one thing we can count on, just as certain as the sun rises from the East, it is that a Univisión Noticias staffer will at some point (to filch El SooperMexican’s term) go bath-salts crazy at the mere mention of El Senador Marco Antonio Rubio.  Continue reading

Immigration: history repeats itself

In 2009, the promise of comprehensive immigration reform took a back seat to the economy and to Obamacare. Events would seem to indicate that history is poised to repeat itself, just days from the second Obama inaugural. Continue reading

BLOGBURST: What Conservatives are Doing Wrong with Hispanics, and How to Fix it

NOTE:  I am proud to forward this primer on conservative Hispanic outreach, which is sorely needed after all the post-election postmortems and bellyaching.  Many thanks to Brittney Morrett, Samuel Rosado, Michelle Lancaster and Ben Domenech for working on this vital paper.  I am honored to join today’s spontaneous blogburst.  Furthermore, I call on the GOP/DC/Miami clownsultant class to do ZERO Hispanic outreach without first reading this primer and committing the principles within to memory.

On Rubio, GQ, and Brown Noise

Today’s faux outrage at Senator Marco Rubio’s (R-FL) response to GQ’s “how old is the Earth” question suggests three things: first, that the 2016 presidential campaign is, indeed, underway. Second, that any conservative with national aspirations (or aspiring to enter the national conversation) should expect, at some inevitable point, that a narrative-framing gotcha question will emerge.  Third, that efforts to deligitimize Marco Rubio’s national profile have entered their next phase.

On David Axelrod and “insults to Hispanics”

As we know, Obama advisor David Axelrod went on Univision’s Al Punto yesterday, and from his mouth sprung forth the laughable, yet patently offensive idea, that the nomination of Marco Rubio as the Republican Vice Presidential candidate is somehow an “insult to Hispanics”.  Axelrod’s statement is beyond offensive on many levels. Continue reading

What the ABC/Univision joint news venture really means

ABC and Univision announced a joint venture yesterday, the contents of which should serve as a wake-up call to conservatives, and should sound an alarm to conservative media outlets.  Continue reading

The folly of “HispanicLatino”

I’ve always thought that the whole idea of “Hispanic” or “Latino” identity was never anything more than an identity politics construct, and this goofy new “HispanicLatino” meme confirms it.  After watching a couple of its proponents try to pitch the label on yesterday’s Al Punto (Univision’s Sunday political talking-head show), I am certain of it.
