“Hispanics are natural conservatives” — The Dangerous Myth
The left has their evil platitudes — “diversity is our greatest strength” and “we are a nation of immigrants,” among others. Those in the so-called conservative movement have their own goofy and fictitious one-liners as well — “Israel is our greatest ally” and “Hispanics are natural conservatives.” All of these are nothing but globalist propaganda narratives aimed at convincing us to give away our homelands to hostile foreigners. With the exploding Hispanic population in the United States, it is important to lay this lie to rest.
One of the central tenants of civic nationalism, which I wrote about here, is that Hispanic demographic replacement should be of no concern, as they are really “just like us.” The left of course, knows this could not be further from the truth, in fact, they are betting on it. Incredibly telling exposés such as Adam Winkler’s The NRA will fall. It’s inevitable, reveals their strategy. Winkler writes, “Support for, and opposition to, gun control is closely associated with several demographic characteristics, including race, level of education and whether one lives in a city. Nearly all are trending forcefully against the NRA.” Winkler cites the overwhelming support for gun control by blacks, Asians, and Hispanics, along with their growing shares of the U.S. population and notes that these shifts are “a boon for gun control.”
The “conservative” camp, has been very slow to catch on. Israel Ortega of The Heritage Foundation writes, “There’s no reason that Hispanics shouldn’t give this movement [conservatism] a closer look. For starters, conservatism is consistent with many of the values of the Hispanic American community. Specifically, conservatism emphasizes the concepts of hard work, entrepreneurship and prosperity.”
Politico discusses how “crucial” Hispanic outreach is to the GOP, the RNC has launched a Hispanic outreach campaign, and the GOP website has an entire section dedicated to Hispanics.
