Earlier this month Reuters reported that Hispanics are among the voting demographic groups fleeing Biden and the Democrats as the midterm approaches:
Of the 35 Hispanic voters Reuters spoke to in two launch races in Arizona and Colorado, 20 – including Aguirre – said rising inflation is leading them to seriously consider voting for Republicans. Most of them said they usually vote Democrat.
Many said they don’t necessarily blame the Democrats, but have lost faith in their ability to resolve inflation and are increasingly willing to let Republicans try.
Even a small loss of support among Hispanics – a key component of the Democratic coalition of voters that brought President Joe Biden to power – could mean the loss of the House of Representatives and possibly the Senate of Democrats.
So what’s the next move by the Democrats to stop Hispanics from voting Republican in November? Reject the insane political pushes of the left? Obviously not! For a Florida Democrat, Rep. Darren Soto, the answer is to involve the Biden Justice Department in “protecting” Hispanic communities from “misinformation”:
In an attempt to counter electoral disinformation / disinformation, we sent a letter to @TheJusticeDept asking how their Election Threats Task Force is focusing on Spanish-speaking communities.

translation? It’s quite simple:
“Spanish-speaking voters are highly susceptible to disinformation and must be protected.”
This translates into:
“Hispanics are stupid and need to be pampered like babies, otherwise they might think the wrong thoughts.”

And as you know, the real “misinformation” comes from the Democrats (looking at you, Biden White House).
This is racist. Hispanics, including your constituents, are perfectly capable of doing their own research and making their own decisions on policies and candidates. Many of them dislike “Latinx”, gender lessons for young children, 9 month abortions, blockages and other dem policies.

Obviously for some Democrats the preferred answer is to involve the Justice Department and perhaps the Ministry of Truth as well.
You don’t decide which sources of information are allowed for Hispanics. https://t.co/uy9eO2XCmE

What a condescending insult. Are Hispanic citizens “highly susceptible” to so-called “misinformation”?
Would we brown cops better get some clues about the “truth” from the Biden Department of Justice?
As Hispanics flock massively in America First, the permanent political class worries. Good… https://t.co/7BNqoOasyZ

Do Democrats really think calling people stupid and gullible is the way to win them back?
I sincerely hope that Democrats continue doubling down on “Latin Americans are switching to Republicans because they are too stupid to know about ‘misinformation’” and not because democratic policies are harming Latin communities. https://t.co/pyH5ukMQKY

We will find out in November how big the backlash against the Democrats will be in the medium term.
