Just yesterday, Republican Mayra Flores flipped a Democrat-held House district in South Texas.
Flores secured 51 percent of the vote, while her rival, Democrat Dan Sanchez, secured 43 percent. Eighty-five percent of residents of that district are Latino. Flores won the seat outright by taking a majority of the vote. She will not need a runoff.
This is a major election victory for the GOP because the area has been represented in Congress by Democrats since 1871. It marks a significant gain for the GOP among Latino voters in that region.
Flores was endorsed by President Trump. Back in 2020, President Trump reduced the Democrat advantage in Texas’s 34th District to single digits. Previous GOP presidential candidates had lost the district by double-digits to the likes of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
The Democrats have relentlessly pounded the GOP for being a party of white supremacists.
The Democrats have also appointed themselves as the custodians for all minority groups. They proudly flaunt their “diversity” in every presentation. They claim to be the only group with compassion and empathy.
The Democrats also claim that the GOP talking about the need to protect borders and prevent the influx of illegal aliens is coded racism against Latinos.
Why, then, would the GOP be winning among Latinos?
The first mistake the Democrats make is they never see people as individuals, but rather as homogeneous demographic groups who they assume have identical worldviews and thinking.
The Democrats, despite their kind words, look down upon minority groups. They see minorities, including Latino citizens, as inferiors who constantly need to be instructed and ordered on what to do.
They hyphenate the groups’ identities; hence, there are Latino-Americans, Muslim-Americans, and Indian-Americans. They often use these groups for shallow tokenism rather than meaningful engagement. Their understanding of the needs of these groups is often based on crude stereotyping and their misperceptions.
This is a form of bigotry, where a group is seen as identical solely because of the members’ race. This is also dehumanizing; it reduces a group into robots who function identically.
The fact is that no two people, including identical twins, think alike or have identical perspectives.
The only common factor (other than language) among Latinos, like every human being, is that they have a desire for a quality life in addition to growth and upward mobility for themselves and their families.
Apart from that, they are a diverse group of people.
The Democrats under Biden are the party of open borders, causing an influx of illegal aliens, human-trafficking, and smuggling of illicit drugs.
If any neighborhood, is flooded with unvetted non-citizens, the resources meant for citizens are exhausted. Working-class citizens are either rendered unemployed or suffer a lowering of wages because illegal migrants are willing to work for less money without benefits. Since the illegal migrants are not vetted, there will be a spike in crimes. Drugs will be easily available, and the young may be influenced to consume them. It also leads to the erosion of culture.
The Democrats presume that Latino citizens, like them, see everything through the prism of race and hence endorse these dangers due to illegal migrants solely because the violators happen to be of the same race. They also make the mistake of presuming that every illegal migrant is Hispanic.
Then there is also a matter of values, culture, and religion.
Among the roughly 63 million Latino citizens in the U.S., 77 percent are Christian.
The Democrats are fanatical proponents of abortion, as evident by their nationwide protest against the possible overturning of Roe v. Wade (1973). Traditional Christians do not approve of abortion.
The Democrats are fervent advocates of LGBT issues. But their support is not restricted to demanding dig…
