Somos Republicans or Somos La Raza?

Our good friend Javier Manjarres over at The Shark Tank takes a look at a supposed Republican Lah-Teen-Oh organization, Somos Republicans, that in his analysis appears to be a front for left-wing immigration reform activists looking to fool and mislead conservative Hispanics.

Phony ‘Hispanic Republican’ Front Group is Outed

http://shark-tank.net/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/la-raza-fist.jpgWhen the spanish-language television network Univision put out a shameful hit piece out on Republican Senator Marco Rubio several weeks back, only one Hispanic organization provided cover for Univision, and that was the upstart organization ‘Somos Republicans’. This group openly states that they are a Republican group, but they have raised flags amongst conservative groups with their over the top pro-amnesty rhetoric and shameless attacks on conservative hispanic leaders like Rubio and U.S. Senate candidate Ted Cruz.

What is so blatantly obvious about this organization’s tactics is the fact that any hispanic politician who does not tow their amnesty line immediately is singled out as a traitor.  Somos Republicans’ own publication – for anyone that actually reads it- only deals with one issue, and that is immigration “reform”, and no other issues matter to this group- regardless if you’re  pro-life, support low taxes, limited government, or the 2nd amendment- issues that the group identifies as its “core principles” don’t matter at all if you oppose their amnesty position- hypocrisy at it’s finest. (Somos Republicans-About us)

    Wait until the NY Times gets wind of these people! They'll start quoting them all over the place, while prominently declaring that they're "Republicans." This is what they do when ever they want to bash the US Embargo on Cuba. They first say that so-and-so is a Republican and then they quote the individual, like they always do with Rep. Flake.

    By the way, where the hell do these Lah-teen-oh's come off calling our representatives traitors because we don't support their agenda. Kind of arrogant, huh? How about when they oppose our Cuba legislation and go to Cuba--like the Lah-teen-oh Congressional Congress has done in the past--- and kiss up to castro?
