I spoke with the California Director, who was situated in Santa Maria. He proudly announced that he had supported John McCain for President in 2008, as if that is something to be proud of.
Then he went on a relentless hate spree going after me because I was "conservative" and "anti-immigrant". This kind of talk is nothing but lies and hate, drummed up to distract Latino Americans from the regressive leftist agenda.
LULAC Hails Departure of Steve Bannon from White House
Why? Why was there such a virulent, rabid hatred of Steve Bannon?
Latino Civil Rights Organization Calls upon President Trump to Remove all White Nationalists from his Administration
Was Bannon a "white" nationalist? No, he was an American nationalist.
Why does this "minority" groups insist on smearing others with the race card or the White Supremacy Card?
Washington, D.C. – The League of United Latin American Citizens, this nation’s largest and oldest Latino Civil Rights organization, hailed the departure of Steve Bannon from the White House today calling it a significant step in the right direction.
“Just as LULAC opposed and was deeply troubled by the appointment of Steve Bannon as Chief Strategist at the White House, we are very pleased that the President has dismissed him today,” stated LULAC National President Roger C. Rocha, Jr. “We encourage President Trump to remove all alt-right/white nationalists from his administration including any staff associated with groups identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as hate groups.”
What does "alt-right" mean? Are they talking about people who are conservative, but using the term as a way to silence their points of view so that no one will listen to them?
"Alt-right" means men and women who are invested in White Pride or White Supremacy.
That has nothing to do with Steve Bannon's populist agenda.
Bannon, Alex Marlow, and Donald Trump are invested in fighting for what is best in this country. They want to reinforce Americanism, and that does not mean opposition to men and women with diverse backgrounds from other countries.
One has to wonder how groups like LULAC can still prosper and not get away with being called out for what they really: racist organizations based on hyping corporate victimhood to hype their own power and make more money.
LULAC is thankful to the broad coalition of Latino leaders who have called for Steve Bannon to be removed including Hector Sanchez of the National Hispanic Leadership Agenda and Javier Palomarez of the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. While some political observers have suggested that Latino organizations do not have much leverage with the Trump Administration, today’s announcement proves that our voices can be effective in bringing about change whether we have a seat at the table or not.
These Latino groups have no leverage. I am still not sure why Trump decided to accept Bannon's resignation. Will this work to the better interests of the country, despite the liberal media's rampant gloating?
“Today’s announcement is a step in the right direction,” states Rocha. “But President Trump must prove that he can be the President for all Americans by rejecting the alt right, embracing diversity, and reaching across the aisle to pass bi-partisan legislation that will help all of us. We call upon the President to salvage his Presidency by moving to the center and healing the divisions that Steve Bannon and others in his administration have caused.”
Trump has already embraced diversity. He has men and women of all backgrounds who supported him in the primary and all the way through the general election.
The enemies of diversity are not Trump and his administration.
They are racist organizations like LULAC, which want to promote the interest of one group of peopled based on their limited, selective ethnic background.
That is not what this country is about, however.
This country's moto is "E pluribus unum"--out of many, one!

Notice that the rubric below shows where their one true focus lies--with Latinos.
Not with Americans as a whole. There is one term to describe this narrow-minded focus: Racism.
