Now that the political press has begun to dissect the Democratic National Committee emails published by Wikileaks, here are three things you need to know about the DNC and Latino voters. (Two of the points are not that important, but one of them is. Can you guess which one?)
Don’t take a moral stance on the Central American migrant crisis. Blame it all on the GOP.
One email thread from this past spring reveals a lot about how mainstream Democrats are spinning the latest round of deportation raids conducted under a Democratic administration. Here is what DNC national communications director Luis Miranda wrote in response to reports that immigration activists would be protesting the DNC:
We’ll also have core talking points for you guys to use generally. Below is what the White House said, some good and some bad. Our points will be smarter but something to be clear about is that reports that there are NEW raids are wrong. This is a continuation of operations announced in January and March. The problem is these groups don’t want to hear this, they want us to send a message to Central Americans to keep paying smugglers and put those kids at risk of abuse and even death. Frankly the rhetoric on this and calls for TPS [Temporary Protective Status] are irresponsible, they send a message that ends up in more lives lost. So we’ll focus our points on how much has already been done to make things better, and that the GOP is standing in the way of real reform. We’re not going to get into a fight on the Central Americans specifically, we’re going to focus on Republican obstruction.
This is what former DNC media booker Pablo Manríquez (also an early contributor to this site) wrote back to Miranda:
FLAG: This has disproven several times over since January — “they want us to send a message to Central Americans to keep paying smugglers and put those kids at risk of abuse and even death. Frankly the rhetoric on this and calls for TPS are irresponsible, they send a message that ends up in more lives lost” So be careful when answering as the press and advocates will be better-prepared than they were the last time. Basically what numerous studies have shown is that no one is leaving CentAm for TPS. In fact, most refugees have never even heard of TPS. All evidence shows people are leaving because they don’t want to be raped and/or murdered.
Miranda’s response to Manríquez? Blame it on the protesters:
It has been disproven only in the eyes of advocates. I’m not going to say that to press, but what advocates are calling for is reckless, irresponsible, and puts more lives at risk.
No, the Democrats don’t think Latinos need “taco bowl engagement.”
The conservative media is currently in outrage mode, saying that Democrats are being racists for this sentence written by Rebecca Christopher in an email thread about Donald Trump’s now infamous taco bowl tweet: “Attached is a script for a new video we’d like to use to mop up some more taco bowl engagement, and demonstrate the Trump actually isn’t trying.”
Critics from the right are screaming, but they are wrong. The DNC team was doing exactly what it should have been doing: capitalize on Trump’s stupid move. In fact, there is another email thread that gives this all context. Here is what Christopher wrote: “Attached is a script for a video we’d like to make based on Trump’s strange Cinco de Mayo tweet today — let me know if you have any questions!”
Latinos are not consumers or a brand, so please stop it right now.
Of all the emails and documents we have seen from this leak, this by far is the most insulting.

However, in fairness, Wikileaks did not include the entire document that contains the data about the “Hispanic consumer.” Here are points from the same document that should be noted:
US Hispanic Millennials feel betrayed by politics, elected officials and parties
US Hispanic Millennials distrust politicians and parties
The US Hispanic Demographic is made up of multiple “Hispanic” or “Latino” cultures
There is no homogeneous Omni-channel platform that can scale across each Hispanic/Latino community in the country to: Discover/learn issues and how they impact local communities; Share and express point-of-view re: issues; Feel included in process; Be motivated to take action (Register and vote)
You can read the full document here.
On another note, we have noticed that most of the attention has shifted to the “taco bowl engagement” and the issue of Latino millennials, but very little is being said about the Central American migrant crisis thread. Maybe the focus should be on that one?

Hillary could hack Bernie Sanders to death with a hatchet on live tv ….. and her minions would still vote for her
So, we are stuck voting for those who are flat against us versus those who pretend to be for us…
#4…All the “La Tino” hyperbole and internet hysteria about Shillary picking a generic “La Tino”, like that little brown-clown from Texas who couldn’t read the Taco Bell drive-up menu without Sofia Vergara (from “Modern Family) translating it for him into broken Hollow-Wood Spanglish, I guess just went up in smoke like more Shillary’s posterior gas emissions.
Here’s the deal…Shillary couldn’t care less about a demographic (a very loosely contrived and politically-contorted one at that) that historically doesn’t vote.
So keep fanning the internet flames of the fallacious “La Tino” outrage but don’t be too disappointed when the ONLY “La Tinos” Shillary engages are her illegal “La Tino” pool-skimmers, illegal “La Tino” landscapers and the illegal “La Tino” maids un-loading baby turds and scrubbing her grand-daughter’s be-jeweled diapers and washing Billy-Bob’s sticky underwear.
Meanwhile “Et Tu Bernie?” has lost all credibility by attaching his caboose to Shillary’s de-railed Train of Tattered Political Theatre.
And the disgraced and now resigned former DNC “leader”, Debbie Wasserman-Schults of Florida has been forcibly silenced for the duration of the convention in Philadelphia and is hiding her face behind her designer sun-glasses as her long trail of corruption, scandals, bribes and black-mail are coming to light in the Wiki-leak e-mail tsunami.
As a result, the DNC is on “Imposion Mode” right now, and it doesn’t matter how many broom-jumping exhibitions Michelle Obama does for Shillary or how many blonde hair-extensions and plastic beads she weaves into Shillary”s blonde bouffant, Shillary’s Titanic has hit the iceberg and there’s nowhere near enough life-boats for that maggot-swarm of national traitors to survive the Philadelphia Cataclysm that awaits them all.
“LOCK HER UP” bumper-stickers are selling outside the convention center faster than bottles of water in the Sahara Desert.
Meanwhile Barry is steering clear of the DNC to preserve his “Lega$$y” and ride more pastel-colored gof-carts with Tiger and his latest gold-digging, knuckle-dragging idiot blonde.
At this point, the lines between fiction, fantasy and farce gets thinner everyday in America politics…OMG!
ThomasMorgan1 ./…no…they would claim that she is suffering from “Stockholm Syndrome” caused by all the blonde hair bleach she has poured on her had all these years.
AndreaLeon1 …you’ll have to define “us” first before I can respond…

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. Graetz, History of the Jews).
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. Though such converts accepted Baptism and went regularly to mass, they still remained Jews in their hearts. They http://raksasapoker.com/app/img/jadwal.html were called Marrano, ‘http://raksasapoker.com/app/img/promo.html Accursed Ones,’ and there http://raksasapoker.com/app/img/panduan.html were perhaps a hundred thousand of them. Often they possessed enormous wealth. Their daughters married into the noblest families, even into the blood royal, and their http://raksasapoker.com/ sons sometimes entered the Church and rose to the highest offices. It is said that even one of the popes was of this Marrano stock.
A fewe months ago I saw a panel at the LA Times Festival of Books about the presidential election. On the panel were Dede Meyers, Press Secretary to Bill Clinton, and Bob Shrum, a speech writer for Ted Kennedy.
During audience questions, somebody asked what they thought about the Latino vote.
The panel went silent–CRICKETS
Latinos do not register with these people. Not at all.
Then Bob Shrum finally said, OK, I’ll take it. He said that because of Trump that we would vote for the Democrats in the same numbers as African-Americans. And that was all he had to say!
I have always been a Democrat, but I don’t see much of a future for us in that party. Case in point: Obama intervening in the CA Senate race and endorsing Harris, ignoring tthe fact that the outcome will be historic no matter who wins. His behavior has really turned me off.
