Congressional Democrats attempting to silence conservative Hispanic voices in Miami

For a party that keeps swearing they’re not tyrannical socialists, Democrats sure do keep acting like tyrannical socialists.

The Congressional Hispanic Caucus Moves To SILENCE Conservative Voices

Past and present members of the far-left Congressional Hispanic Caucus are now seeking to marshal the full power of the federal government in order to stop a conservative ownership group from taking ownership of an AM radio station in Miami, Florida.

Newsweek’s Adrian Carrasquillo reports:

Members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) mobilized Wednesday to pressure the Federal Communications Commission to further scrutinize and reject the sale of the well-known Miami radio station Caracol 1260 AM to America CV, which owns the América TeVé network.

The congressmen’s decision comes on the heels of a Newsweek report that detailed how America CV immediately fired the station’s top-rated host, Raul Martinez, a Democrat and former mayor of Hialeah. The swift termination was viewed as a political decision, and led Florida Democrats to sound the alarm of a conservative media takeover on the Spanish-language airwaves.

In brief, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (a body largely composed of folks who couldn’t get elected dogcatcher in Miami-Dade County including, to wit, a literal Castro Brother) is using a labor dispute as cover to attempt to remove ideological opponents from the airwaves.

This effort to suppress Hispanic conservatives is by no means a new initiative, but began in earnest during the 2020 election and has been ongoing since. As the Trump campaign’s anti-communist message took hold, the left began to cry “disinformation”. Latinxtroturf organizations and defeated Democrats (like former congresswoman Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, who asked her former CHC colleagues to intervene in Radio Caracol’s licensing) joined forces to try to pressure Miami stations into silencing conservative voices.

Miami is unique among cities with large Hispanic populations in that there is an abundance of conservative voices on the local airwaves. Univision and Telemundo, despite being headquartered in Miami, don’t get to impose narrative as they do in other cities. The left doesn’t run unabated in the Miami market as they do elsewhere, and Donald Trump’s improved performance over 2016 has sent them over the edge.

  1. Let’s stop beating around the bush. Who are the democratic Hispanic congressmen? Answer: Chicanos. They’re sticking their noses in where they don’t belong. Its not the first time, but it just seems more extreme and obvious this time. The chutzpah leaves one with a gapping mouth. Just imagine if Congressmen Diaz-Balart, Gimenez and Salazar did the reverse to Chicanos out West!?!

  2. Alas, Cubans should no more watch Univision and Telemundo than bother with Miami’s Herald rags, but unfortunately, not to say disgracefully, Cubans have dignity issues, among others.

    ABSOLUTELY, and let me add, Cubans should, also, reject the imposition of the “Latino” slur on them. We are Cubans. Our dear, dear latrino [misspelling intentional] brothers and sisters don’t do anything for us, and we gain nothing from belonging to all of their self-serving Latino organizations like the Congressonal Hispanic Caucus which are chicanos fronts.

    How many times do we have to be made love to [use the “F” word here] without vaseline for us to realize that our dear, dear latrino brothers and sisters don’t have our best interest in mind? The Elian nightmare was not enough when all of the non-Cuban Hispanics in congress advocated [some aggressively] for his return to Cuba? The Cuban embargo is not enough? When all of them support a lifting of the embargo? Their visits to Cuba are not enough when they go there on “fact finding” missions that play up to the regime? Their insistence on speaking up for us when they have no right to do so is not enough like when they insisted that Javier Bardem a Spaniard couldn’t play Desi Arnaz [a Cuban of Spanish ancestry] because they insist that we identify as people-of-color? Their social media presence is not enough when they routinely call us “coconuts” and sellouts because we’re Republicans? This outrageous attempt to stop us from buying a radio station is not enough? GTFOH!

    • Well, the Cubanoids identify as “Latinos” and even “Latinx,” and since they welcome plantation status, they’re the only “proper” Cubans as far as the usual suspects are concerned. The rest, “those people,” are non-persons.

  4. And by the way, I don’t think of myself as conservative. I think of myself as RATIONAL, grounded in reality as it is, as opposed to some delusional fashion victim desperate to be “with it,” whatever “it” may be.

    That’s an excellent point. I don’t think of myself as a “conservative” either. The irony is that if we use progressive and liberal as a definition for someone who wants to change the status quo and “conservative” for someone who wants to keep the status quo unaltered, who are the most conservative people on earth? Those that support the ossified 62 year old human rights violating castro regime, while we who want change in Cuba are progressives.
