“Our Gloria” Leads our Dear, DEAR “Latino brothers and sisters” in Los Angeles May Day March! (UPDATED)

Update by Pitbull: Here are pictures our commenter DavidB1 linked to. “Our Gloria” has a lot of splaining to do…

Plenty of commies here...
Plenty of commies here...
Plenty of commies here, too! What a shock!
Plenty of commies here, too! What a shock!



Official flags of the National Immigrant Solidarity Network.

“Every American has the right to protect where they live,” said Gloria Estefan, a Cuban-American.

“But that doesn’t give them a reason to pass a law that could create racism and discrimination against Hispanics who contribute a lot to this country.”

Entire tolerance and anti-intransigence here.

(Anyone up to arguing with such intellectually-intimidating pop-star logic and erudition have at it–me, I’m going fishing.)

Update: Indeed, George! I’ve always BELLOWED that Babalu has the sharpest, quickest, smartest reader/commentators in the blogosphere!..Hot Damn!!!

  1. Gloria’s dad, as you all know was with 2506 Brigade at the Bay of Pigs and a Vietnam veteran who suffered from Agent Orange.
    He gave blood, sweat and tears to his native homeland and his adopted homeland and was a hero to both nations.
    The protesters today who wave Che flags have nothing but contempt for him, United States and freedom yet we are supposed to welcome illegals and encourage the American born Marxists who arrange these rallies. Come on Ms. Estefan. You know better.

  2. You all know I’m a big supporter of Gloria. And that I’m against this Arizona law. But marching on May Day with Che flags? I can’t get behind that.

  3. Well this says it all

    the communists have taken over so many countries

    and the communists have failed there

    so obviously, but only to them,

    they want to drag the U.S.

    into that intolerant grayness.

    If there was no better reason

    not admit illegal immigrants

    this is it.

    So very sad

    a bunch of maxists taking over the good will

    and hard work of the honest illegals…

  4. “You all know I’m a big supporter of Gloria. And that I’m against this Arizona law. But marching on May Day with Che flags? I can’t get behind that.”

    I guess that Emilio and Gloria didn’t mind the Che Guevara flags at the event when they hosted a fundraiser for another Marxist anti-American bullshit artist at their mansion a few weeks ago…

    Sorry David,

    But I think that it is about time that you open your eyes and see the Estefans for what they have become.

    Like they say, a picture is a thousand words, tell me who you’re with and I tell you who you’re.

    I hope that now you begin to understand our opposition to the Estefans.

  5. I’d like to add that the groups behind the spreading of the xenophobic lies about the Arizona law, which only goes as far as our federal immigration laws that are not being enforced, are the same groups shouting viva revolución and carrying che flags today.

  6. gloria and emilio estefan have finally come out of the closet. They’ve been closet socialists all the time they were bamboozling the Cuban-American community in order to make money. Aqui lo que importa es el Ca$h. Now that they don’t need us they thump their noses at us.

    By the way… I support the Arizona Law all the way. I can only hope that other states follow suit. In addition I despise LA RAZA and everything it stands for.

  7. That’s right Ziva,

    Time for some people to start opening their eyes to reality.

    But I guess the Estefans don’t want to wake-up…or maybe they just joined the other side.

  8. To be fair, I don’t think that this is a pic of one of the rallies today. But it still does not take away from the fact that these are the types of Marxist groups behind amnesty for illegals.

  9. Correct me if I’m wrong… But I think gloria estefan has started to build up her political persona. What else is there to do? She has fame, lots of cash, and nothing to do. Congress 2012?

    I wonder…

  10. It’s a pity that like many, the Estefans are caught up in the frenzy and emotional side of the issue as a result of the intentional misrepresentation of the actual law and neglect to see the rational side to it.

    This is not about Hispanics! It’s about ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION!!!

    The reality is that a “law” alone could not create or eliminate “racism” or “discrimination” . . . those who are racist or discriminate do so independently from the law. The Arizona law is about enforcing the rule of law as it pertains to illegal immigration. Some, if not most of those who are in this country illegally are hard working and honest individuals, but the law is the law and how can we realistically expect the law to be enforced arbitrarily? We can’t allow our sense of morals prevent us from doing what’s right … and sadly … right is not always fair!

    Again, it’s the Estefans prerogative to participate in this event. However, we can’t ignore the fact that most of the organizers and promoters of these demonstrations like the “Che” carrying idiots and the La Raza operatives, have a different or alterior agenda in their activism! I can’t help but question their honest concern and advocacy towards illegal immigrants. They are opportunistic, progressive,socialist, and communist organizations who share their hatred for the United States and what it stands for, and seize the moment to create chaos and division to attack Capitalism and the foundation of this great country.

    IMO, I will not be surprised if all this exposure by The Estefans lately is motivated by possible political aspirations on their part … only time will tell . . . 😉

    I wish you well 🙂 Melek

  11. I was watching the march on Univision and I made a bet with my Mom that I would see the image of Che within 5 minutes of watching…sure enough, within seconds I saw the image of Che on a huge Cuban flag. My Mom left the room and said “que saquen a todos esos hijo de P#@# de este pais”.

  12. LOL Firefly!

    I started to write my comment and had to walk away for a few minutes before posting it… and after I posted it … I read your comment. . . I happen to agree with your opinion as you can see in my comment … 🙂

    I wish you well 🙂 Melek

    “For those of us whose main concern is the well-being of ordinary people, it is a no-brainer to abandon the left as soon as we acquire enough knowledge about what actually happens, as distinguished from what leftist theories say will happen. It is a very different story for those on the left whose goal is either a self-righteous sense of superiority or the political power with which to express their self-infatuation by imposing their vision on others. Here the poor are a means to an end. These kinds of leftists show remarkably little interest in the creation of wealth, which has raised living standards for the poor, as compared to their obsession with redistribution, which has not.” ~ Thomas Sowell

  13. Gloria marching against our laws? Last I checked, she and husband hosted a mega-bucks fund raiser @ their digs for someone who’s hellbent on undermining our lawss, so why am I not surprised?

    There was a Marcha here too, with police estimates around 25,000 — plus a counter march, with much smaller numbers, perhaps b/c it was hastily planned. All peaceful. But 25,000 doesn’t match our tea party gatherings, and we have many. I saw LULAC goons with their old boring “tomorow we vote” sign. But I’ve a suspicion — just a hunch — that some of these illegals are waking up to the reality that people are really, really fed up. It’s in the air.

  14. Gigi,

    That’s right, the American people are feed-up with illegal immigration and the quality of individuals coming into America from south of the border.

  15. Thanks, David. In a nutshell, if you march on May Day, expect to march with commies. This is their annual workers bullshit day. NOBODY can convince me that ANYONE that marches on this day is unaware of the Communist influence. Sorry, that dog don’t hunt…

    (BTW, if anyone has pics of the LA rally today that displays these commie images, send them to us.)

  16. Exactly George. May Day is a marxist holiday. That is why I can’t believe people like Estefan and that Enrique Santos radio guy lend themselves to march in these types of May Day parades with marxists and illegals.

  17. Also, does anyone know where the quote about the mexicans came from? Have some ignorant mexican friends who are che lovers and are harassing me.

  18. Don’t understand why any self respecting American, let alone one with Cuban roots, would associate with these La Raza Mexicans.

    When they first started marching under their “Che Day” banners I thought they must be too stupid to know better but quickly realized the truth…

    They are chip on the shoulder racialists and socialists.

    They despise the freedom loving Cubans who embraced the Constitution and Bill of Rights after escaping Fidel’s plantation.

    They know damn well how real Americans, especially Cuban Americans react to their banners. That’s exactly why they carry them.

  19. Gloria is (figuratively) dead to me.

    A disgrace to her father, her island, and the country which took her in.

  20. That Steyn column is good all through, but these paragraphs from it (Brown runs from the people who are affected by illegals by climbing into his limo and driving away) are so on point:

    That’s Arizona. To the coastal commentariat, “undocumented immigrants” are the people who mow your lawn while you’re at work and clean your office while you’re at home. (That, for the benefit of Linda Greenhouse, is the real apartheid: the acceptance of a permanent “undocumented” servant class by far too many “documented” Americans who assuage their guilt by pathetic sentimentalization of immigration.) But in border states illegal immigration is life and death. I spoke to a lady this week who has a camp of illegals on the edge of her land: She lies awake at night, fearful for her children and alert to strange noises in the yard.

    President Obama, shooting from his lip, attacked the new law as an offense against “fairness.” Where’s the fairness for this woman’s family? Because her home is in Arizona rather than Hyde Park, Chicago, she’s just supposed to get used to living under siege? Like Gillian Duffy in northern England, this lady has to live there, while the political class that created this situation climbs back into the limo and gets driven far away.

    Exactly. So David, the lawyer who knows everything better than Arizonans and their sympathizers, because he understands that these immigrants are just human beings, misses the point. Arizonan victims of these outsiders are also just humans and have their reasons, too.
    This issue should not be framed in compassion terms. It is about the law. It is about people breaking the law and making life intolerable for people who are doing the legal things. I don’t have compassion for people who are killing, kidnapping and squatting on others’ private property. David, the lawyer, is a typical member of Steyn’s commentariat.

  21. Exactly Honey. This whole “they are human” argument is a bunch of crap. I mean, using this argument I would then ask: When does it end? The whole damn world is full of humans. Do they all have the right to come here and stay here because they are human? Please!

    I also find it funny that every other country in the world, including Mexico, has the right and do use that right to ask for papers and nobody complains.

    Yet it is NAZISM when the US does it. And this is just enforcing a law that has been law since the 40’s, when FDR signed it into law.

    Mark Levin said it best: Since he never hears anybody complain about Mexican immigration law then it must be a perfect immigration law. So the US should just adopt the Mexican immigration law.

    Here is another interesting article on the law by the guy that wrote it: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/29/opinion/29kobach.html

    Btw, I’ll point out that Arizona is so far 3 for 3 in the courts regarding their immigration laws. They know what they are doing when they write their immigration laws and I bet they will eventually win this one too in the courts.

  22. I stopped being a Gloria Estefan fan back in the 90’s when she made a hullabaloo about MIDEM -that international organization of the music industry-that decided to change their venue from Miami or Miami Beach [can’t remember now] when it was decided that the city wouldn’t welcome “artists” from Cuba. At the time, Gloria Estefan blew a gasket and wrote a damming letter to the Miami Herald exulting “tolerance.” Needless to say, the Miami Herald and the national media jumped on that letter like flies on shit and starting accusing the Cuban American community of being intolerant, intransigent, against freedom of expression, as bad as Castro, etc…

    The national media then started depicting Gloria as a so-called moderate and she basked in that description. She even went as far as to say that she came over to the USA in order to be able to express herself!

    Of course, her real agenda was that because as an integral part of the music industry in Miami, she probably felt that it was important for her [$$$$$] to have MIDEM in her hometown.

    In the ensuing years, Gloria has continued to rub Cuban Americans the wrong way, must notably the Santana incident, then the OBAMA fundraiser incident–that she tried to correct by holding a march in favor of the Damas in Blanco and “informing” Obama about their situation–and now this.

    To me, it appears Gloria Estefan is trying to get browning points with the Latino Community. Her concern is sales. She stopped being concerned about Cuban Americans as her bank account continued to grow.

  23. For the record, Arizona should send this woman to D.C. to address Obama and the Congress on this matter.

    She’s a LEGAL Mexican-“AMERICAN” and is outraged by the outrage, especially within the government of her state.

    She pretty much says it all:


  24. Melek,

    We are both on the same wavelength. I believe emilio estefan is now focusing all his efforts on a different career for gloria. Everyone knows gloria never really had a great (or even nice) voice. In fact, I believe that if it weren’t for emilio’s musical compositions and his business savvy, gloria would only be a memory.

    Now that gloria is getting long in the tooth, (and no efforts need be applied to their children since it seems neither child has musical talent) the political venue could very well be her new career. I wouldn’t be surprised, if very soon, Obama offers her a position in his administration, a la “Curly Top” Joe Garcia.


    I’m with you. I remember well her interview and how she talked down to the Cuban-American community. I still can’t understand how there’s many out there sympathizing with this bitch.

  25. Oh Dear!!! The Estefans are now on the side of “illegal” immigration. I guess once a person crosses the bridge into the safety of Star Island, their bank account reaches 6 or 7 digits, fame and fortune has carried them to the summit of their respective careers, they forget that this is a country of laws and all these illegal Mexicans are indeed breaking the law. What would happen if I decide to swim into Star Island and set up camp in their backyard? Would Emilio call his Cuban contractor and build me a nice efficiency next to the pool and the foxtail palm trees? I’d be tresspassing and Miami Beach PD including the Chief will be on me like white on rice.

    Why can’t the Arizonans demand from their state government the same thing? To live in peace and not be forced to support financially a bunch of people who decide to come into their own backyard?

    Gloria….you are a disgrace to those who love freedom and those who have died in the hands of communist assassins like Che Guevara! Every night at El Morro Castle, the firing squad was in full swing and at the end of the machine guns burst, one could hear one lonely shot….guess who was the saddistic SOB who shot those heroes in the back of the head? The same person who is now flying high among the socialist, anti-american crowd that you Gloria and Emilio are so enamored with in the name of “equality and freedom.”

    Karma is a mother…..er!

  26. I’m Hispanic and I’m fiercely anti-illegal immigrants.

    The damn liberal media has turned this issue into a racial issue (which it most definitely is not, it is an issue of legality) and the conservatives are so stupid that they have let the media set the tone for the debate. Unfortunately, the American citizens of Hispanic descent have swallowed this con job hook, line and sinker.

    Regardless of all the red herrings (get iot?) and straw men arguments that the pro-criminal elements employ to obfuscate matters, it is an issue of legality (just what part of ILLEGAL don’t they understand in the term (illegal immigrants”?). Their claims can boil down to their assertion that Americans have no right to say who comes into their country.

  27. I believe this just about covers it. This is making the rounds on the internet. It is a letter to our president:


    Dear President Obama:
    I’m planning to move my family and extended family into Mexico for
    my health, and I would like to ask you to assist me.

    We’re planning to simply walk across the border from the U.S. into
    Mexico, and we’ll need your help to make a few arrangements.

    We plan to skip all the legal stuff like visas, passports, immigration quotas and laws.

    I’m sure they handle those things the same way you do here. So, would you mind telling your buddy, President Calderon, that I’m on my way over?

    Please let him know that I will be expecting the following:

    1. Free medical care for my entire family.
    2. English-speaking government bureaucrats for all services I might
    need, whether I use them or not.
    3. Please print all Mexican government forms in English.
    4. I want my grandkids to be taught Spanish by English-speaking (bi-
    lingual) teachers.
    5. Tell their schools they need to include classes on American culture and history.
    6. I want my grandkids to see the American flag on one of the flag poles at their school.
    7. Please plan to feed my grand kids at school for both breakfast and lunch.
    8. I will need a local Mexican driver’s license so I can get easy access to government services.
    9. I do plan to get a car and drive in Mexico, but, I don’t plan to purchase car insurance, and I probably won’t make any special effort to learn local traffic laws.
    10. In case one of the Mexican police officers does not get the memo from their president to leave me alone, please be sure that every patrol car has at least one English-speaking officer.
    11. I plan to fly the U.S. Flag from my house top, put U S. Flag decals on my car, and have a gigantic celebration on July 4th. I do not want any complaints or negative comments from the locals.
    12. I would also like to have a nice job without paying any taxes, or have any labor or tax laws enforced on any business I may start.
    13. Please have the president tell all the Mexican people to be extremely nice and never say critical things about me or my family, or about the strain we might place on their economy.
    14. I want to receive free food stamps.
    15. Naturally, I’ll expect free rent subsidies.
    16. I’ll need Income tax credits so although I don’t pay Mexican taxes, I’ll receive money from the government.
    17. Please arrange it so that the Mexican Gov’t pays $4,500 to help me buy a new car.
    18. Oh yes, I almost forgot, please enroll me free into the Mexican Social Security program so that I’ll get a monthly income at retirement.

    I know this is an easy request because you already do all these things for all his people who walk over to the U.S. From Mexico. I am sure that President Calderon won’t mind returning the favor if you ask him nicely.

    Thank you so much for your kind help. You’re the man!!!

  28. Rayarena ~ your last point is ingenious; mulling it over, you’ve hit the bull’s eye: the estefans have probably realized by now that their business exploits among the Cuban exiles may just go downriver after all these shenanigans.

    So, shrewd as they are, they’re turned their sights and PR guns on their latino brethren as a sure market + future $ource of income, knowing full well that ignorance is total bli$$ when it comes to them. The estefans won’t have to worry about living a double life or catering to their compatriots, those pesky intransigent narrow minded bigots — no, not if they have other customers waiting on the wings willing to keep lining their pockets.

    Though the situation is “fluid,” I seriously doubt emilio is grooming gloria to pursue politics, when it’s so much easier to keep getting rich by sucking up to so-called “latino causes.” Besides, she has very thin skin, doesn’t look like the type that (a) can engage in moderately intelligent debate or (b)take any measure of criticism.

    Ray, you’re on the money.

  29. I agree that this is all marketing for the Estefans, but……
    I do see an Ambassadorship in the wings or some kind of committee. I wonder if the Estefan worshippers have gotten wise to her yet? Obama will milk her as a rallying point for the Hispanic vote.
    Don’t forget the looming statehood of Puerto Rico and having Gloria as the point person will buy Obama lots of votes. This all is not just coincidence.
    If we do not deport the illegals soon we will lose our two party system and it will be Cuba Part II.

  30. Gigi, Thank you. Yep, that’s what its all about: money, mullah, cold hard cash. Our dear Latino brothers and sisters represent a much bigger share of the market than Cuban Americans. The Estefans are painfully aware of this.

    That’s why she hired Che-worshiping Santana to perform on her recent CD. That’s why she had a fundraiser for Obama and that’s why she’s marched in this demonstration.

    It’s tragic that so many younger generation Cuban Americans don’t seem to care about Cuba. Their parents [Gloria’s father was in Bahia de Cochinos] were anti-Castro stalwarts, and they’ve betrayed that legacy.

    Another example is Jorge Mas Santos. His father created CANF and he destroyed it.

  31. I tell you it must be something in the water when Gloria Estefan and Jorge Mas Santos go on to betray their fathers’ legacy.

    I say send those two back to live in Cuba under Fidel and Raul Castro. And let the Castro brothers confiscate their wealth the moment they arrive to the island.

    Oh well, if you asked me I say that we’re living in some very strange times that no longer make sense…

  32. I think that the Republicans should try to appeal to the legal immigrants who did do things properly, who had their interviews, their medical check-ups, who showed proof they wouldn’t be an economic hardship on this country, who jumped through all the hoops and are finally legal residents or citizens. Aren’t they insulted by the illegal immigrants? Aren’t they pissed that after they spent all that time and all that money to be in this country legally, some ass wipe, crosses the border illegally and the next day is demanding respect and challenging authority? WTF?

    I know we are a nation of immigrants, but ILLEGAL immigration is a DANGER to our national security, period. I don’t care if you’re from the moon, you should enter legally, just like you have to in every other freakin’ civilized country in the rest of the world.

    IMO, Glorida Estefan en Enrique Santos, are both clowns looking to advance their “economical” agenda.

  33. I strongly suggest that everyone e-mail all of their friends, associates, work contacts with attachments of the above photographs.
