Cuban exile actress lambasted for straying off the reservation
Ay Dios mio! Cuban-born actress Maria Conchita Alonso has sparked a firestorm of umbrage by refusing to think "correctly," as demanded by her Lateen-ahh identity.
Once again, we are given a glimpse of the moronic politics of ethnic and cultural identity embraced by leftists and the Democratic Party -- which do not allow for the slightest departure from "correctness" by members of "oppressed" minorities.
Will these folks who condemn Maria Conchita Alonso ever realize that they are all bigots at heart? Don't count on it. They are much more likely to slap the "racist" label on Maria Conchita and anyone who defends her than to carefully examine their inverted bigotry.
Go figure. And go watch one of Maria Conchita's films, such as "Running Man" (see photo above), in which she starred with Governator Ahhhhrrrnold.
And do yourself a big favor and watch the commercial in question, which is hilarious, even though it is not really a good political ad and it contains one segment that could irritate our own great hunter, Humberto.

Latina Actress Under Fire For Endorsing A Tea Party Immigration Hardliner For California Governor
Conchita Alonso, the Cuban-Venezuelan actress who counts as one of her best-known films “Moscow on the Hudson” with Robin Williams, is drawing controversy over a political ad in which she appears with a California Tea Party lawmaker who is running for governor.
Several Latino organizations criticized the actress for endorsing Tim Donnelly, an assemblyman who founded a state chapter of the Minutemen, an armed vigilante border patrol group, and who has pushed for a hard line on immigration.
The critics also took issue with what they say is the stereotyping of Latinos in the campaign video in which Alonso appears with Donnelly.
In the video, which was released on Monday, Alonso holds a small dog that she introduces as “Tequila” and at times uses vulgar expressions as she translates into Spanish remarks by Donnelly about his views on various issues.
“The Tim Donnelly ad with Maria Conchito Alonso ad is so bad it’s almost laughable,” said a statement by Café Con Leche, a Latino Republican group. “The ad seems designed to appeal to Hispanic voters, but instead insults the intelligence of many Hispanic voters.”
The group said that Alonso was an example of how “time and time again movie stars often lack common sense.”...
..Alonso, a former Miss Venezuela, was born in Cuba but moved with her family at the age of five to Venezuela, where she was raised. She was known originally for her starring roles in Spanish-language soap operas before she broke into the U.S. film industry.
In 1995, Alonso became the first South American woman to star on Broadway when she won the role of "Spider Woman in Kiss of the Spider Woman," according to The New York Times.
She made headlines a few years ago when she told off actor Sean Penn in an airport in California for his support of the late Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. She called Penn a communist, and he called her a pig.
