'Real Deal' GOP Latinas Are Not Done With Jill Biden

As we previously reported, Republican Latinas who are either running for office or who are already there have been under attack in recent weeks by terrified leftists and their media allies, both of who are proclaiming these women are out of the mainstream of Hispanic thinking or something simply because they don’t all think the same way socialist Democrat Latinas like Rep. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) do.


For example, just last week, the New York Times hit out at newly elected Rep. Mayra Flores (R-Texas) as well as Republican House nominees Monica De La Cruz and Cassy Garcia (both also from Texas), calling them members of the “far-right,” which is media speak for “any member of a minority group who does not march lockstep with Democrat party dogma.”

Days later, the ladies were attacked by NBC Latino contributor and CNN columnist Raul A. Reyes, who declared in an op/ed published on the struggling network’s website that conservative Latina women like Flores are “not the real deal” because their views allegedly are not “an authentic reflection of Latino voters.”

So understandably, these ladies were ready to roar when First Lady Jill Biden compared San Antonio Hispanics to “breakfast tacos” during her Monday appearance in Texas at a “Latinx IncluXion” luncheon.

But though mainstream media coverage of the co-president’s tone-deaf comments has waned over the last 24 hours or so, that doesn’t mean these GOP Latinas are willing to let the issue go. They, along with fellow GOP House nominee Yesli Vega (Va.), are still raising the roof in their own way, making sure that people in their respective communities don’t forget how little the Democratic party actually cares about what they think.

For instance, Flores appeared on Fox News for an interview Wednesday where she said in so many words that the only reason Biden was apologizing (through a spokesman) was that she got caught showing the type of disrespect for the Hispanic community that Democrats typically try to mask:


…Flores said it shows Democrats believe things like tacos and “playing Latin music” is all it takes to win voters.

Flores doubted the sincerity of Biden’s apology, saying it only came after the White House saw the backlash from the Hispanic community.

“It’s going to take a lot more than that. We want gas, rent and groceries to come down. We want more money in our pockets, and they’re only making our lives more miserable.”

Starts at about 3:30 into the below clip. Watch:

Vega did a short, sweet and to-the-point video educating Jill Biden on the differences between a Hispanic person and a taco:

Garcia capitalized on the debate over Mrs. Biden’s cringe comparison and the use of the term “Latinx” in a cute patriotic tweet noting that she’s not “Latinx” and not a “taco.” She’s “100% Texan”:


De La Cruz RTd this hilarious meme that included AOC:

Good for them.

Hopefully, they’ll keep making noise every time Democrats say the quiet part out loud regarding their true thoughts about minority communities, as black conservatives did after Joe Biden’s infamous “you ain’t black” statement in 2020 and as Hispanics did after Terry McAuliffe’s eye-opener during a 2021 campaign stop about how they needed to keep reproducing so Democrats wouldn’t run out of voters.

During the Trump years, Republicans made inroads with minority voting blocs because they began to understand that there were areas where they could find common ground with those voters (on economic and educational matters, for starters) if they just framed their messaging in the right way. Though they still have a long way to go, the GOP continues to make progress in these communities not by going “Democrat-lite” but by appealing to them by pointing out their commonalities, emphasizing that they agree on more than they disagree – something the media and the left don’t want people to believe.

Between that, and Joe Biden’s mangling of the southern border crisis and the Democratic party’s growing obsession with appearing “woke,” Hispanics are now not just walking away from the Democratic party; they are running away from it.

Only time will tell, but what we’ve seen in recent elections even in places that Democrats ultimately won is that the peeling off of Hispanic voters from Democrat voter rolls is commencing apace and shows no signs of stopping. And as long as Democrats keep their heads in the sand in trying to placate out-of-touch hipsters and wokesters in their party instead of focusing on issues that matter to most Americans no matter their background, that trend will continue.


Not all black people think alike. Not all Hispanics think alike. Not all women think alike. I could go on and on, but I think the point has been made. Republicans understand this now, Democrats don’t because a) they hate admitting they’re on the wrong side of any issue and b) they think they own minority voters.

Advantage: Republicans. End of story.
