In anticipation of November’s presidential election and in light of growing concern among Democrats regarding their ability to court the Hispanic vote, Breitbart News border reporter Ildefonso Ortiz and international news editor Frances Martel discussed the increasing popularity of conservative ideology within their community.
In a conversation in their native tongue, Spanish, the two noted the growing recognition among Latinos that the core of their culture and identity is fundamentally incompatible with the goals and values of the radical left. Ortiz, who is Mexican American, noted that Mexican culture and values are “more conservative than what Democrats present” and that the Democrat approach to molding Hispanic identity to the party’s benefit is “the definition of racism.”
“For a long time, the Democrat Party has tried to come across as giving the image that they are the party of immigrants. Of course, what we have seen over time is that it is a lie,” Ortiz said. “If we look at Mexican culture, we are really more conservative. The ideology of a Mexican is more conservative than what Democrats present.”
“Always, when they reach the presidency or get power, they forget about Hispanics. It’s something that, sadly, has not changed,” he added, “and people are starting to awaken to that strategy.”
Martel, who is Cuban American, argued that this growing awakening has led to tensions between Democrat elites and grassroots conservatives, which peaked this year with a bizarre left-wing attempt to boycott Goya foods, a staple in Hispanic households.
