nant with their communities more than our messaging is being resonant with our community.”
Note the “their communities” and “our community” bits. That’s a sense not only of belonging, but of ownership. Stray from what is expected, what is accepted, and watch your back. Ask Condi Rice, Clarence Thomas, or Tim Scott how accepting and tolerant these left-wing activists are when conformity is denies them, the answer isn’t pretty.
Democrats are terrified at the prospect of more minorities breaking with what they’ve deemed acceptable thoughts and actions. The story highlights “A Pew Research Center analysis estimated that 92% of Black voters and 59% of Hispanic ones picked Biden. Democrats know they can’t afford to lose that support in the 2022 midterms and in the 2024 presidential election.” That Hispanic number scares the hell out of Democrats. If they lose the Hispanic vote, it’s over.
How Democrats have gone about trying to win the Hispanic vote is the why they’re losing so much of it. Black voters have a history of slavery in this country. No one alive experienced it, but the liberal industrial complex controlling education and pop culture have people living in fear of a boogeyman who doesn’t exist anymore and was a Democrat when he did. It works – black voters in cities like Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, etc., vote for Democrats for generations because the alternative is worse, somehow, in their minds. That’s conditioning.
Hispanics don’t have that history. They have a history of oppression by socialism, by their government. That oppression was ushered in under the banner of compassion, as it always is. They or their families fled what Democrats are selling. All the identity politics in the world won’t change the stories told by grandmas and grandpas about how they ended up in the land of the free.
That’s what these progressive groups hope to, and need to, counter: reality. Lies can be very powerful, but never as powerful as personal experience. As Hispanics dabble in GOP voting, it might attract some interest from black voters who’ve noticed 5060 years of blind loyalty has only led to the disintegration of cities and families. Something as small as a 5-10 percent shift there, and it’s game over for the left. They’ll do absolutely anything to prevent that.
