Just When You Thought Hillary Clinton Couldn’t Hispander Any More, She Did It Again

UPDATE, December 23, 2015: The Clinton campaign’s Latino outreach director responded to the criticism, as reported by NBC News.

Earlier this year, we wrote an editorial about how the Hillary Clinton campaign produced one crazy insulting example of Hispandering. But just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, an official post from the Clinton campaign written today just scaled the Hispandering from a 10 to an 11.

That tweet took us to this post on HillaryClinton.com:

7 ways Hillary Clinton is just like your abuela

She isn’t afraid to talk about the importance of el respeto.

After that, it spirals into a pit of Hispandering despair, with quotes, images, gifs and this listicle:

  1. She worries about children everywhere …
  2. She knows what’s best …
  3. She reacts this way when people le faltan el respeto …
  4. She reads to you before bedtime …
  5. She isn’t afraid to talk about the importance of el respeto (especially when it comes to women) …
  6. She likes to highlight accomplishments …
  7. and she had one word for Donald Trump …

Then there is this:

Everybody loves abuela—even this guy.

And don’t forget to “Add your name for more abuela updates.”

Please stop. Just stop. This is bad. Really bad. If this is where the Clinton campaign is going, it might as well just be completely transparent about the fact that all it wants to do is Hispander like no one has Hispandered every before. The Clinton team might as well just upload this meme to the campaign site and call it a day.


Young Latino voters are not stupid. They are actually informed and can sense when someone is authentically reaching out and when someone is just lowering the bar. Enough with the lowering of the bar. The Clinton campaign needs to get serious about the young Latino vote and start respecting it. Votes are earned, not expected.

By the way, we aren’t the only ones saying this. Just check out #NotMyAbuela on Twitter today:

Then there is this one:

The Talmud must not be regarded http://utamadomino.com as an ordinary work, composed of twelve volumes; http://utamadomino.com/app/img/peraturan.html it posies absolutely no similarity http://utamadomino.com/app/img/jadwal.html to http://utamadomino.com/app/img/promo.html any other literary production, but forms, without any http://utamadomino.com/app/img/panduan.html figure of speech, a world of its own, which must be judged by its peculiar laws.
The Talmud contains much that http://utamadomino.com/ is frivolous of which it treats with http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/peraturan.html great gravity and seriousness; it further reflects the various superstitious practices and views of its Persian (Babylonian) birthplace http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/jadwal.html which presume the efficacy of http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/promo.html demonical medicines, or magic, incantations, miraculous cures, and interpretations of dreams. It also contains isolated instances of uncharitable “http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/panduan.html judgments and decrees http://dokterpoker.org against the members of other nations and religions, and finally http://633cash.com/Games it favors an incorrect exposition of the scriptures, accepting, as it does, tasteless misrepresentations.http://633cash.com/Games

The Babylonian http://633cash.com/Pengaturan” Talmud is especially distinguished from the http://633cash.com/Daftar Jerusalem or Palestine Talmud by http://633cash.com/Promo the flights of thought, the penetration of http://633cash.com/Deposit mind, the flashes of genius, which rise and vanish again. It was for http://633cash.com/Withdraw this reason that the Babylonian rather http://633cash.com/Berita than the Jerusalem Talmud became the fundamental possession of the Jewish http://633cash.com/Girl Race, its life breath, http://633cash.com/Livescore its very soul, nature and mankind, http://yakuza4d.com/ powers and events, were for the Jewish http://yakuza4d.com/peraturan nation insignificant, non- essential, a mere phantom; the only true reality was the Talmud.” (Professor H.

And finally it came Spain’s turn. http://yakuza4d.com/home Persecution had occurred there on “http://yakuza4d.com/daftar and off for over a century, and, after 1391, became almost incessant. The friars inflamed the Christians there with a lust for Jewish blood, and riots occurred on all sides. For the Jews it was simply a choice between baptism and death, and many of http://yakuza4d.com/cara_main them submitted http://yakuza4d.com/hasil to baptism.
But almost always conversion on thee terms http://yakuza4d.com/buku_mimpi was only outward and http://raksasapoker.com/app/img/peraturan.html false.

It is said that even one of the popes was of this Marrano stock.

Get over it people.  Hillary doesn’t want to be an abuela.  What white woman in her right mind who has all the privileges of the world, want to be an abuela.
