So, we must be doing right about our distaste for the silly name of the Tequila Party, since it appears that Dee-Dee García Blase —the founder of the 2,000-member Tequila Party (funded by the high-powered Republicans) and the self-proclaimed Voice of All Latinos— is starting to share her thoughts about this blog and our positions.
In a message we received today, Dee-Dee's true colors show in her criticism of LatinoRebels.com. Here is what she wrote:
For the record, the owner of the Latino Rebels who is against the name of the Tequila Party is Puerto Rican (Julio) , and we all know PR's get automatic citizenship. I don't think that Latino Rebels really feel what people of Mexican descent are going through right now and we have to be creative and controversial in a good way to get people to think about the importance of the latino vote to promote for pro immigration politicians. It's too bad Latino Rebels wasn't more like Rep. Luis Gutierrez for Illinois. Julio (Latino Rebels) asked me why we didn't name the movement "rum party", and I think it has something to do with PR's and Cubanos liking 'rum' more so than the 'tequila'.
