An Associated Press report published this week about President Donald Trump’s continued support among Latinos inspired a lot of shock, angst and even blatant racism from the far-left.
Shared by NBC News on Thursday, the report noted that 32 percent of Latinos voted for Republican congressional candidates during the midterm elections last month.
“Though Latino voters are a key part of the Democratic coalition, there is a larger bloc of reliable Republican Latinos than many think,” the AP reported.
“And the GOP’s position among Latinos has not weakened during the Trump administration, despite the president’s rhetoric against immigrants and the party’s shift to the right on immigration.”
The president’s rhetoric has been against those who flagrantly violate, disrespect and/or spin on America’s immigration laws and sovereignty. That the AP reported otherwise isn’t shocking.
What was shocking and disturbing was how members of the radical left reacted on social media when NBC’s sister network MSNBC shared the AP story to its Twitter feed.
Data from November’s elections show the GOP’s position among Latinos has not weakened during the Trump administration, despite the president’s rhetoric and policy.

One leftist used a racist stereotype to mock Trump’s Latino supporters:
The ones here in TEXAS, thought Meester Trump gonna feex our yobs..

Another accused them of being confused:
Self hate and the rejection of decency and objective truth are likely to blame.
Nationwide Trump got 3 outta 10 latinos during the general election. Lets not overstate the impact of these confused people, yet.

One said they deserve to rot:
Really a shocking statistic, IMO. It’s a lot like the Cubans, they got in and to hell with the rest of them. Let them rot in Cuba. A very sad commentary on human nature.

Another suggested the president’s Latino supporters are “grifters”;
Thus confirming the only voting block who continues to like Trump are the grifters and their marks.

Others accused Latino Trump supporters of being uneducated, hypocritical religious zealots:
It’s abortion. I live on the border & THAT is their issue. They are religious & do what the “church” says. AND it’s the women. Hispanic men do what the women say. #lackofeducation #pious #lowinformation

Now tell us if those that support him also support their religion equally.
Seems today’s religious people will follow anyone that tells them things they want to hear real or not

And the rest chose to simply disbelieve the data:
I don’t get this.

Don’t believe it.

The polling that shows Latinos in support of Trump is probably being conducted by Republicans escorted by IMMIGRATION & CRIMINAL ENFORCEMENT agents in blazing uniforms.

I’m sorry but I don’t believe that statistic or poll. Hispanics know that trump could care less about them or anyone that’s not white and or privileged.

This implies there was no tampering with the voter rolls or no voter suppression of any kind. Would be difficult to measure the Latino vote until we know the process is fair and clean.

It makes zero sense
— ⚡️DJ_Reddz⚡️ (@DJ_Reddz) December 28, 2018
The data “makes zero sense” to these Twitter users because they’ve bigotedly chosen to pigeonhole Latinos and assume they all think the same and act the same.
It’s in fact long been a common belief among liberal Democrats that all minorities — not just Latinos — must adhere to left-wing “principles” because Republicans are racist, sexist, hateful, etc. And because Democrats naturally know what’s best for minorities because they’re not racist.
You are a racist!!! You pigeon hole -a class of people and intimate how they should think and vote. The presupposition is where your racism is revealed. According to you, if you’re Latino or black, you must think like you. You are the true fascists.

The only ones shocked by this are liberals, media, and democrats who love to pigeonhole everyone with identity politics. pic.twitter.com/55t8t58TRs

Yet just look at the replies to MSNBC’s tweet …
Newsflash to the left: Demanding that all minorities think a certain way is the very definition of racism and bigotry. So is insulting minorities for thinking differently than you and saying minorities deserve to rot for voting differently than you. That’s bigotry, plain and simple.
It’s a bigotry that’s become more widespread — or at least noticeable — ever since Trump won the presidential election years ago. And it’s a bigotry that’s affected more than just minorities who vote Republican. It’s even affected those minorities who’ve simply espoused some conservative ideas.
Earlier this year rapper Kanye West faced an onslaught of criticism, insults and jeers for praising black conservative activist Candace Owens, for wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat, for working with the president to enact criminal justice reform and for practicing the freedom of thought.
It’s an epidemic — one rooted in the very sorts of bigotry, hatred and racism that liberals accuse the right of practicing, but that they themselves so clearly excel in perpetrating.
