Last week, Texas Republican U.S. Rep. Mayra Flores outclassed the New York Times for publishing an ugly partisan hit piece branding her as a dangerous "far-right Latina." Now, the newly-elected congresswoman — who caused an uproar last month when she flipped a seat in a historically Democrat region along the southern border — has once again demonstrated for her defamers what it means to show grace (especially to those who don't deserve it.)
Democratic Rep. Vincente Gonzales (D-Texas) has apparently paid a blogger to call his Hispanic opponent “Miss Frijoles” and a "cotton-pickin' liar," according to NBC News. The McHale Report blog received $1,200 from Gonzalez’s campaign just days before launching the lowbrow racist attack against Flores.
"My far left opponent, Vincent Gonzalez, hired a local blogger to run hateful & racist ads against me," Flores tweeted on Monday.
"But, I love frijoles & I grew up eating frijoles. I am not embarrassed of my upbringings & frijoles w/tortillas de harina is simply the best. Here's to Miss Frijoles 2022," she added.
Now that's how it's done. And the folks on Twitter seemed to agree:
On "The Rubin Report,” BlazeTV host Dave Rubin talked about how Hispanic voters are abandoning Democrats. As Flores has clearly explained, inflation has become the number one concern of Hispanic voters and one of the reasons former leftists are abandoning Democrats for the Republican party. Can Democrats win elections if they lose the support of the Latino community?
