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.

One leftist used a racist stereotype to mock Trump’s Latino supporters:

Another accused them of being confused:

One said they deserve to rot:

Another suggested the president’s Latino supporters are “grifters”;

Others accused Latino Trump supporters of being uneducated, hypocritical religious zealots:

And the rest chose to simply disbelieve the data:

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.

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.

If such a well-known celebrity was treated this badly for siding with conservatives on some issues, just imagine the hell everyday American minorities face for supporting their president.

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.
