José Diaz-Balart, host of RunDown (MSNBC) is as close as the on-off switch and I have decided to turn him off. MSNBC is slowly turning into small-scale FOX NEWS echo. I tune into Morning Joe, and listen to Joe Scarborough dispense my daily dose of right-wing poison. José is more than I can take, but to stay tuned to this person is more than I can take—he is over the top. He is not too bad on Noticiero Telemundo, which is one of the few places on American TV I can get South American political news. However, he invites a parade of Cubans before the lens of the RunDown. The hate Castro rhetoric of 50 years ago has done immense harm to this country and to the Cuban people. Castro is a dictator and a bad one at that; however, the Cuban people have suffered enough. They are brain-washed, but they are also ambivalent. I talked to may of them in Belize, where Cuban physicians come for one or two years to help villages. Cuban immigrants have harmed out country by turned Florida to a conservative camp. They have tried to make us look at the Latino people as a monolith, which they are not. Everyone realizes or at least they should realize that Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Bob Menendez, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Carlos Curbelo, and José’s brother, Mario Díaz-Balart are all children of Cuban immigrants. That is three of 12 Florida Representatives and one of the 2 Florida senators are children of Cuban immigrants.
They all claim to be children of working-class Cuban exiles, which should make the Democrats, but the Conservative Political Party has built a reputation of hating communists which stem back to the second world war, but is what attracted the Cubans and caused them to betray their working class heritage. They brag about being from the working class and being happy America accepted their immigrant parents as exiles but that makes me wonder if they know what American politics is all about; they joined a political party that hates immigrants and support the rich.
