Liberal Democrats say Ted Cruz not Hispanic because of political views

Talk about the pot calling the kettle black, former scandal-ridden New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson said that Ted Cruz, whose father is Cuban, should not be considered Hispanic because of his political views.

On ABC News this past Sunday when asked if he thought that Cruz’s political views represented most Hispanics, Richardson said, “He’s anti-immigration. Almost every Hispanic in the country wants to see immigration reform. No, I don’t think he should be defined as a Hispanic. He’s a politician from Texas. A conservative state.”

This coming from a former governor, who was subject to a federal investigation for the old Blagojevich pay to play scheme involving Richardson’s political action committee, Moving America Forward.

Moving Forward – where have I heard that before?

During the last campaign Gilbert Hinojosa, the Democratic Party chairman for the state of Texas, told the Houston Chronicle in an interview in October:

“His last name may be Cruz, but there is nothing, not an ounce, about the way he thinks and the way he has led his life than in any way is similar to Hispanics in the state of Texas and all across America… Ted Cruz is as much Hispanic… as Tom Cruise.”

Politicians must have the correct liberal views, or the liberals will revoke that person’s heritage, as they have in Ted Cruz’s case. You can’t be Hispanic or African-American unless you hold the proper views on the social issues of the day.
