NYT Op-Ed: Cruz Victory Not Historic Because He Doesn’t Meet the “Conventional Expectations” of a Latino

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:44 am



Which are, of course, to be a Democrat.

Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio Made History. Didn’t You Hear?

DEFYING most polls and predictions, a Latino won the Republican Iowa caucuses, and another Latino came in third. Together, they won more than half the vote.

With Senator Ted Cruz taking nearly 28 percent of the vote and Senator Marco Rubio getting 23 percent, each vastly surpassed the results for any other Latino candidate in any previous United States presidential contest.

How is that not being celebrated as historic or at least worth a headline for a day or two?

The answer is not that complicated: Neither Mr. Cruz nor Mr. Rubio meets conventional expectations of how Latino politicians are supposed to behave.

Oh? And how is that?

Neither of these candidates claims to speak for the Hispanic population or derive a crucial portion of their support from Hispanics, and neither bases much of his political identity on being a Latino. To varying degrees they oppose legalization for unauthorized immigrants, a policy that is central to most organized Latino political interests and that is supported by a great majority of Latino elected officials and Latino voters.

The final claim is obvious bullshit, since Rubio and Cruz never shut up about their Cuban heritage. And the claim that Rubio opposes legalization to any degree, when he actually supports a path to citizenship, is also just false. Really, what this “analysis” boils down to is that they’re not authentic Latinos because they’re not Democrats. Oh, but it gets better!

No less an arbiter than Jorge Ramos, the Univision anchor, seemed to condemn them without naming names in a column last month. “There is no greater disloyalty than the children of immigrants forgetting their own roots. That is a betrayal,” he wrote. It is criticism that echoes the rhetoric aimed at Justice Clarence Thomas of the Supreme Court and other successful members of minority groups who are perceived as failing to uphold their own group’s interests.

“No less an arbiter than Jorge Ramos” is a phrase that mocks itself, but there’s no law that says we can’t pile on:

More of that good identity politics analysis:

We learned that when Barack Obama’s first presidential campaign took off with a victory in Iowa. In 2008 the voters got to know a politician whose ancestry and upbringing were far from typical of the African-American population but who nonetheless served as that population’s tribune in powerful ways.

By being a Democrat.

Mr. Obama walked his own tightrope by striving not to be defined by his race even as his political strategy depended on rallying black voters to his cause.

Because he’s a Democrat.

It’s a whole piece devoted to justifying the notion that Cruz’s victory was not really historic. Because, yes, he’s a minority — but he’s a minority Republican, don’t you see. So that doesn’t count.

At least now you know why nobody’s talking about Cruz’s historic victory.

Except: you already knew why, didn’t you?

P.S. Yes, the piece also talks about Rubio — but Rubio doesn’t really matter here because you see, Rubio hasn’t done anything historic yet. Coming in third, despite what the media might try to tell you, is not really that “historic.”

  5. Marco Rubio is JEB’s doppelganger. They are two sides of the same coin – card carrying GOP establishment insiders. Rubio’s prominent place as the public face of Comprehensive Immigration Reform is the clearest indication of his absorption into the collective. If Rubio wins the GOP nomination all resistance becomes futile, you too will be absorbed.

  11. Roberto Suro is a bigot.

    The reason people like Suro – and the editorial staff at the New York Times – get away with being so brazenly bigoted in public is because their bigotry is politically correct. You are to be shamed and shunned for treating anyone as “the other” for being of a certain race or ethnicity or sexual orientation (and now, sexual identity), but it’s perfectly fine for people to declare that persons “of color” who do not hew to the political identity assigned to them by the media majority are unworthy of praise, note, or congratulations. In fact, for the sake of what they consider a greater good, these people believe the importance of such dissidents’ very existence ought to be diminished.

    This, of course does NOT apply to Caucasians (or, as WSJ‘s James Taranto puts it, “people of pallor”). Those who identify as “white” are not supposed to have a fixed political identity based on their race or ethnicity. In fact, white people are, according to people like Suro, supposed to do everything they can to distance themselves from the concept of linking their skin color and their political ideology. Still, in an act of systematic hypocrisy so thoroughly institutionalized it’s accepted as conventional wisdom, they are encouraged to join the Suro types in disrespecting and mistreating minorities (like Cruz, Rubio, Clarence Thomas, Bobby Jindal, Dinesh D’Souza, and others) who similarly reject the progressive politics cast upon them without their consent.

    As a man twice as black as Barack Obama who rejects the invisible “(D)” presumed to be branded on my posterior upon arrival, my contempt for people like Suro is almost palpable. Thankfully for us both, I will likely never come within shouting (or spitting) distance of him.

    L.N. Smithee (178aa6)

  12. Through their actions, Cruz and Rubio are tearing down racial and cultural stereotypes and making it difficult to employ prejudices. Who can argue that isn’t a good thing? Seems the NYT would much rather that Cruz and Rubio, in order to be acceptably authentic, should reinforce the prejudices the NYT seems to espouse as in “If you’re a , you should act like a .” The more that the media, like the NYT, reinforces the racial/cultural divide, the longer there will be prejudice in our society. By all means, let’s celebrate the differences among races, cultures, and religions, but let’s not build walls around them which only creates “we good, they bad” thinking.

    LTMG (94c4c3)

  13. The idiocy lost me with…….”they oppose legalization for unauthorized immigrants.”

    Unauthorized immigrants actually means “ILLEGAL”………so……..”they oppose legalization for illegal immigrants”.

  17. The NYT is just one recycling step away from its best use, but even then I expect it is only suitable for the lower grade of tissue, not the soft and fluffy stuff. Something prickly and stiff.

    But there are signs of a revolution brewing in the bowels of the Gray Lady. Check out this quote from Peter Eavis on the topic of toxic loans in yesterday’s edition:

    Wherever governments and central banks unleashed aggressive stimulus policies in recent years, a toxic debt hangover has followed.

    He must have missed the memo, let alone ignored the author’s guide. He points out that China will have $30T in loans at the end of this year, up from $9T seven years ago. And $4T may be lost on loans of questionable value. I thought that NYT had concluded that the problem was that QE wasn’t large enough? Ah, perhaps the answer is that QE is in the US, not China.

    But then again, he closes suggesting that the solution is for the government to step in with “a widespread plan that aims to reduce the debt load of financially stressed homeowners”, as has been done in Ireland. So what a government can screw up, it can screw down, problem solved. That’s a plan … until the unintended consequences become so large as to require yet another intervention.

  20. I think the left has pretty much kicked people of Cuban descent out of the whole pan-Latino identity group. I mean, just because Cubans come from a culture which has seen first-hand the end result of leftist domination is no reason for them to suddenly be into such unappealing concepts as capitalism and personal freedom.

    Jeff Kalb (9ca142)

  23. Ted Cruz is indeed a minority.

    I don’t mean an ethnic minority. I mean a truth-telling minority.

    Beldar (fa637a)

  24. If this year’s GOP primary comes down to the race between a revolutionary, a conventional (but young) Establishment Republican, and a vulgar pander-clown, that gives the country two out of three chances.

    I’d prefer the revolutionary. I’d still show up to vote for the young establishmentarian. I pray I’ll never be left with the clown as my only alternative to the Dems.

    Beldar (fa637a)

  25. That said: I couldn’t be happier with the chaos on the other side right now. This Democratic sausage is delicious to watch being made, as long as I don’t have to eat it at the end.

    And if you throw in an African American, you get to 60%.

It’s absurd and it’s shameful that the administration is proposing this,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in an interview. “This is a political decision to protect her candidacy—because it is laughable, legally.”

    GOP Establishment Rallies Behind Rubio

    With the GOP hierarchy warming to Rubio, the squeeze is suddenly on struggling establishment contenders Chris Christie, John Kasich, and Bush, who must convince party higher-ups that they have a reason to continue on. On Tuesday morning, top Bush donors and finance officials held two conference calls to discuss the path forward. On one, according to one participant, there was an acknowledgement of the campaign’s increasingly long odds and an agreement that, barring a strong Bush showing in New Hampshire, many Bush donors would soon bolt to Rubio.

I think it’s just a psychological need. speaking as a layman there.”

    I remember the actual events, and have read the wiki on Donald Trump, where he ran for President twice before. So where is this new “special” hurdle that Trump has to clear, that he has to win every primary (even the rigged ones) or he is a loser?

    What did Ann Richards say about their father about being born on third base?

    Cruz Supporter (102c9a)

  49. The English language has many colorful terms for minority members who don’t meet conventional expectations, many dating from the slave era. Such a mindset has outlived the plantation or, perhaps, come to serve the modern, figurative plantation. Even among Democrats, the expectation extends well beyond party allegiance. They expect gratitude and deference. Never freethinking.

    By the way, the conventional wisdom has always been that with ethanol subsidies, Iowans were bought and paid for. With his record-setting vote accumulation, Cruz proved that article of faith completely wrong.

    It will be interesting to see if he can also convert bought-and-paid-for Hispanics and thereby disprove another conventional wisdom. I don’t see any reason why not. It is not as if an old, rich White woman with a sense of entitlement, or an even older hippie/kook hold any special appeal to Hispanics. Besides, as they say in the barrio, “Companeros antes put*s, verdad?”

  57. @ papertiger (#38): I bow to no one in my disdain for Hillary Clinton and my certainty that she ought to be in prison instead of on the campaign trail. But I absolutely, positively disagree that draft indictments — against anyone, ever — ought to be released.

    No one who understands and values civil liberties would think it a good thing if the government is allowed to merely destroy lives without even the proof required to support a grand jury indictment or a prosecutor’s “information” in lieu thereof.

    And the quoted portion about being “laughable, legally” is indeed laughable. They’ve just got it ass-backwards: The notion that such draft indictments aren’t absolutely privileged, and that they are (or ever ought to be) available for public inspection, is more than laughable. If I were a judge, I’d sanction a lawyer who asked me for that relief unless he admitted, up front, that he’s asking for something that cannot be supported by current or historical law, and that he’s asking me to change the law.

    I’d be interested in our host’s views on this if he feels that it’s a subject he can address without complicating his day job.

    Two days ago Breitbart’s Milo Yiannopoulos and Allum Bokhari began teasing an “Explosive” Cruz scandal that was supposed to post imminently on Breitbart.com.

    According to Allum Bokhari, it would reveal the ‘true face’ of Ted Cruz and would be “much worse” than the Ben Carson-fraud fiasco currently ongoing. When asked if it would destroy the Cruz campaign, Allum replied he “couldn’t say for sure.” When asked about the initial delay, he replied that Breitbart is being very careful with the information due to its seriousness, but that the “wait was worth it.”

    A year goes by and she sends him a telegram. “Oh, daddy, I really need to see you and talk to you”. Well, by this time his heart has softened and he misses her too and he wires back, “Ok”.

    She sends a private plane for him which flies him to Athens. A private helicopter takes him to a hundred-foot yacht at Piraeus. The yacht takes him to an Aegean island. When he lands he sees a big beautiful palace, of marble, with landscaping and statuary, and dozens of servants all over the place.

    His daughter, dressed in the height of fashion and dripping with expensive jewelry, runs out and hugs him. He hugs her back and says, “My baby, I’m so glad you sent for me. I see now that you were right and I was wrong”.

    She says, “No, daddy, you were right. I want you to take me away from here and back home with you”.

  84. Neither of these candidates claims to speak for the Hispanic population or derive a crucial portion of their support from Hispanics, and neither bases much of his political identity on being a Latino.

    Notice how the writer, Roberto Suro employed at USC, avoids using “liberal” or “conservative” — or “centrist,” for that matter, too — throughout his entire assessment of the election in Iowa, undoubtedly rooted in the same sleight-of-hand bilge (of “Huh?! We’re not biased!!”) that staffers of the New York Times are notorious for when they’re being accused of leaning left.

    That lack of honesty on the part of so many members of the MSM drives me nuts.
