Spanish-speaking Americans have enjoyed Telemundo and Univision for entertainment, news, and sports programming for years. But a new network launched March 8 for the population that may crave a more conservative flair: the nation’s first Spanish-language conservative network on satellite radio called Americano. SiriusXM carries the service, with plans to expand. By summer, the news channel will offer streaming services with a mix of straight reporting and commentary. Strangely enough, the station has links to President Donald Trump and the former Republican governor of Florida, Jeb Bush.
And guess who is panicking? Yep, that would be the Democrats: the party that believes any person with a skin hue darker than taupe is automatically a liberal voter. The Dems are not being coy about their fears.
You Ain’t Hispanic If You … Umm …
Hispanic voters are migrating from Democrat to Republican registration in alarming numbers – at least for the Democratic Party. Keeping Juan Q. Público from adding an (R) beside his name requires some dirty tricks of the desperate kind. The current battlefield, of course, is social media platforms where cries of disinformation – days before the network’s launch – reached a frenzy not seen since the Trump-Russia collusion hoax. Americano’s founder and CEO, Ivan Garcia-Hidalgo, was offended by claims of misleading or outright planned disinformation before his channel had even aired:
“They’re scared. And they should be. Democrats took Hispanics for granted for too long, and no one thought to create a home for us in conservative media. There is an appetite for this. You see it on social media. You see it in elections.”
Miami-based pollster Fernand Amandi seems to be losing his mind. He is the man who successfully steered the Barack Obama campaign strategy to pick up the melting pot of Hispanic voters in Florida. “For those concerned about the disinformation problem harming Democrats’ chances with Hispanics, this is a Defcon 1 moment. We should worry,” a disturbed Amandi warned. “The Democrats’ response to all of this Hispanic outreach from Republicans — whether it’s disinformation or conventional campaigning — is to do the bare minimum. Unfortunately, some Democrats are deluding themselves. The ultimate act of disinformation is to pretend that this is not a big problem.”
Remember the Alamo
As Liberty Nation’s one and only Senior Political Analyst Tim Donner recently wrote: “How ironic it would be if the era of Donald Trump is viewed by future historians as the tipping point, the time when Hispanic voters finally abandoned the Democratic Party.” Donner concluded that recent poll numbers should terrify the Democrats, as “[t]he survey numbers are stark: 37% support for each party in the 2022 midterms, the rest undecided.”
Chief strategy officer on the new platform, former Trump campaign and White House adviser Michael Caputo, suggested this network will likely attract a wide spectrum of Hispanic voters. Caputo said: “Hispanics are moving toward us. They’re jumping into the Republican pond. And we’re giving them a lily pad to land on. Some will land on the Donald Trump pad. Some on Reagan. Some are for Jeb Bush.”
Let’s keep in mind that NBCUniversal owns Telemundo. And perhaps that’s why a new conservative voice threatens the activist liberal message. Add in the fact that the Democratic Party has spent too much time in the land of hubris – believing all persons of color vote for its platform. So it might be the perfect timing for Americano to hit the airwaves.
