As my friend Humberto Fontova wrote last week:
Ted Cruz-Derangement-Syndrome went viral in the media this week.
From Chris Matthews to David Muir and from Joe Scarborough to David Brooks-- they were all over Cruz like a cheap suit.
The New Yorker’s John Cassidy called Cruz “uppity”—then weaseled out because the term has “disturbing historical connotations.”
A berserk Donny Deutsch over at MSNBC denounced Cruz as not only “unelectable,” but “scary, I think he’s dangerous, I think he’s slimy and I think he brings no fresh ideas.”
It’s an old story, actually. A few years ago during an interview with Joy Behar, MSNBC’s Donny Deutsch sneered at Cuban-American Marco Rubio as that “coconut down in Florida.”
The bottom line is that Hispanics in the US are a diversified group of people. We should respect our differences rather than engage in these attacks against those of us who didn't buy into "hope and change".
