The Wall Street Journal has exposed that Hillary Clinton’s “Hispanic” potential vice presidential running mate, Thomas Perez, has lied repeatedly that his grandfather was an heroic resister to the totalitarian Hispanic dictator Rafael Trujillo in the Dominican Republic. WSJ exposes that in fact: “Grandfather of potential Clinton VP pick served dictator” Trujillo. (WSJ, July 20, 2016).
It is obvious, thus, that Hillary’s Hispanic, Thomas Perez, has much in common with her — i.e., the capacity to lie without shame to gain power — but what does he have in common with other so-called “Hispanics” other than a Spanish surname?
Politically-correct, Progressive-Liberal Democrat Party totalitarians like Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama like to speak of their great love for “Hispanics,” or “Latinos,” as if “Hispanics” constitute a monolithic ethnic group, apparently because they have Spanish surnames in common. However, that is about all that “Hispanics” have in common.
Indeed, there are enormous cultural, political, and historical differences among the many nations of peoples who are lumped together by the leaders of the Progressive-Liberal Politically-Correct Modern Democrat Party into one, undifferentiated ethnic blob designated “Hispanic.”
In reality, there is great diversity among peoples designated “Hispanics. ” This great diversity includes great divisions, not to mention antagonisms and down-right dislike if not hatred by and between different “Hispanics.” Notwithstanding, despite this diversity, “Hispanics” are treated as a monolithic ethnic group owned and controlled by the ever-so “Liberal” Democrat Party, aided and abetted by the liberal media.
For one instance of this, Hillary Clinton is now floating the Hispanic name of Labor Secretary Tom Perez, as a possible Vice Presidential candidate with her. The liberal media informs Americans how much this will help Hillary to win the “Hispanic” vote.
Why? I is not because Perez has been such a wonderful Labor Secretary or former head of the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice–he wasn’t. He has been as ruthlessly totalitarian in those bureaucratic roles as was, for example, Trujillo, the former dictator of the Dominican Republic.
The analogy of Perez with excrescent dictator “Hispanic” Trujillo, is apt. It turns out that although possessed with a Spanish surname which has made many believe that Perez is of Mexican heritage, his roots are in the Dominican Republic. There, his was a very privileged family due to the fact that his grandfather was a loyal collaborator serving in the Trujillo dictatorship, Indeed, he was at one point Trujillo’s Ambassador to the United States, as is revealed in the WSJ article.
So, it has to be asked: Why would Hillary designate Perez her Hispanic, and why does the media think Hispanics will therefore vote for her, not withstanding all of the scandals surrounding her, not the least of which is the Benghazi atrocity, the blood of which is on Hillary Clinton’s hands.
What does this Thomas Perez, whose Hispanic roots are in the Dominican Republic, have in common with, say, Americans of Mexican decent, other than a Spanish surname? Americans of Mexican descent are overwhelmingly the most numerous people lumped by Democrats into the category of “Hispanic.” What of the other non-Mexican “Hispanics,” those of Central America, South America? Will they all rush to the polls because they have so much in common, culturally or historically, with “Hispanics” of the Dominican Republic?
Can Thomas Perez, proud descendent of one of the privileged families of the Dominican Republic because of their connection with the dictatorship of Trujillo, be held out as a “Hispanic” to be embraced by Americans of Mexican decent? Or Argentinians, Chileans, Brazilians, Paraguayans? What is the racial, ethnic, or cultural tie of any of those ethnicities with Thomas Perez with cultural roots in the Dominican Republic, and political and historical roots in the “Hispanic” dictatorship of Trujillo?
This is not to deny that Perez has much in common with Hillary Clinton — he is a totalitarian self-declared “Progressive-Liberal” given to the big lie to get a head politically, in his case the now exposed lie that his grandfather was an heroic opponent of the dictator Trujillo, which he wasn’t; rather than a collaborator with Trujillo’s dictatorship, which he was.
Excuse me for opining that the lumping of all persons with Spanish surnames into a monolithic mass is insulting, racialist, and blatantly colonialist as the Democrat Party attempts to herd “Hispanics” to the polls like colonized serfs, easily manipulated by dangling a Spanish surname before them as purportedly deserving of their vote as a “Hispanic” by way of Spanish surname — no matter how excrescent is the person bearing it, as in the case of Thomas Perez.
In short, the only thing Hillary Clinton and the Politically-Correct, Progressive-Liberal, Modern Day Racially Divisive Democrat Party love about “Hispanics” is their votes, and how they can be exploited, as Mexican serfs once were by the Haciendista land owners pre-Emiliano Zapata, Pancho Villa, and the Mexican Revolution. Zapata famously said “It is better to die on your feet than live on your knees.” Hillary, Obama, the contemporary Democrat Party wants to force all “Hispanics” back on their knees, an undifferenced, unthinking monolithic mass genuflecting before the Democrat Party as once they did before the Spanish colonizers, and their collaborators.
Rafael Trujillo, the heinous dictator of the Dominican Republic would smile upon Hillary and the Democrat Party today, using Thomas Perez as a mascot “Hispanic” today for Hillary as once Perez’ grandfather did for Trujillo.
