Unlike the black vote, which unfortunately still appears to be overwhelmingly monolithic, the Hispanic vote is not. And no where is this more apparent than the recent mayoral victory by an Hispanic Republican in a Southern Border city (well, almost) in Texas. It stunned the dems, who I’m surprised didn’t cry voter fraud because of it.
Yes it’s just a single small victory – but is it? Could it instead be a sign of a sea change among Latin voters, who tend to be more personally conservative and religious and may be becoming a bit jaded of the lefts radical agenda of no God and no family.

Viva America! Conservative Hispanics Crush Minority Stereotypes
Ay caramba, Democrats.
The famous saying “Be careful what you wish for; your wish may be granted” dates back to the wonderful Ancient Greek storyteller Aesop, around 500 B.C. It derives from his fable “The Herdsman and the Lost Bull,” about a herdsman who loses a calf and implores the gods to help him find him. He locates the calf, along with a fierce lion feeding on him, and the lion naturally threatens the herdsman. Like all of Aesop’s fables, it’s an entertainingly told lesson, but not one the ignorant leftists who just abolished Ancient Greek as a language requirement for Princeton University Classics majors because of racism (don’t ask) are likely to learn, except the hard way. And last week, the Democrats seeking to absorb Hispanics into their racist minority alliance got ravaged by the lions in their sheepfold on two separate occasions.
By far their biggest shock was U.S. District Judge Roger Benitez ruling California’s three-decade-old ban on “assault weapons” unconstitutional. Democrats have chipped away at the Second Amendment for longer than I’ve been alive, most recently in a crusade against the phenomenally popular AR-15 rifle, using the “mass shooter’s weapon of choice” argument. Benitez’s 100-page opinion masterfully stomped that canard by citing the rifle’s defensive use: “In the self-defense context, which seems to be more common, taking accurate shots at attackers is vitally important for the innocent victim.” The sudden, surprising removal of the gun-grabbers’ longtime beachhead crushed progressives almost as much as the remover being a Latino, which was supposed to guarantee his sheepish obeisance.
That’s because Marxist critical race theory does not allow for independent minority thought — or Cuban–American patriotism such as Benitez’s, and my own. As Cuban immigrants, we personally experienced the obliteration of human rights by statist tyranny. A Second Amendment would have come in handy versus Castro in Cuba, and we would prefer it “not be infringed” here. America saved us, and we intend to return the favor. Judge Benitez did his part on Friday, torpedoing the concept of Hispanic groupthink, the Left’s Achilles’ heel (another classical reference that will soon be lost on them).
