Wall Street Journal: Hispanic Support for Republicans Is Surging
Axios: Beware of "White Nationalist Hispanics!"

Gee, I wonder if these two articles are somehow connected.

The Wall Street Journal found Hispanic support for Republicans growing -- so much that a majority now favor a Republican Congress.

The survey also found Republicans making gains among minority groups. By 9 percentage points, Hispanic voters in the new poll said they would back a Republican candidate for Congress over a Democrat. The two parties had been tied among Hispanic voters in the Journal's survey in November.

Tom Bevan of RealClearPolitics calls this a "five alarm fire for the Democrat Party.

Is the poll finding accurate?

Well, apparently Axios thinks so, because they've decided to start treating Hispanics (formerly known as Latinxes) as Republicans, giving them the full "White Nationalist" treatment.

The rise of white nationalist Hispanics


Nick Fuentes, identified as a "white supremacist" in Justice Department filings, made headlines last week for hosting a white nationalist conference in Florida. His father is also half Mexican American.

Well, the media called it a "white nationalist" conference and I think they called it that because Nick Fuentes organized it. So he's a white nationalist because he organized a white nationalist conference, and the conference is white nationalist because the white nationalist Nick Fuentes organized it.

TBH I don't know if I should be defending him or not -- I know nothing about it.

Just noticing some tautological definings of "white nationalist" by the media.

Watch for the next libelous stolen base here:

The big picture: Fuentes is part of a small but increasingly visible number of far-right provocateurs with Hispanic backgrounds who spread racist, antisemitic messages.

Driving the news: Cuban American Enrique Tarrio, the former leader of the Proud Boys, a group the Anti-Defamation League calls an extremist group with a violent agenda, was arrested Tuesday and charged with conspiracy in connection to the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.

Note what they don't say: That Enrique Tarrio is a "white nationalist." I have always heard that he's anti-racist. And it would be strange for him to be "white nationalist," given that he's simply not white.

But they slip this in here, in an article about "White Nationalist Hispanics," after a mention of someone they claim is a "White Nationalist Hispanic," so that incautious readers will just assume this is another White Nationalist Hispanic -- the way this is written suggests that they're listing the White Nationalist Hispanics.

And here's Enrique Tarrio as Example Number Two.

But they didn't quite say that, because they don't want to be hit with a defamation lawsuit. They just imply their libel through the structure of the article.

By the way: That's quite a list of "White Nationalist Hispanics," huh? Nick Fuentes they claim is one, and Enrique Tarrio they claim... well they don't claim he's one but they include him in the list, because the list actually is comprised of a single example they're willing to gamble with the defamation laws on.

And you can't have a list with just one example. So Enrique Tarrio is drafted.

I've mentioned that "trend" stories used to need three examples -- if a reporter could think of three examples of something happening, he could write a story about this Hot New Trend of three incidents happening in a country of 300+ million.

Then lazy, unethical reporters reduced the requirement to two examples equaling a trend.

And now, when they have a poll they want to push back on and a non-white population to frighten away from voting Republican, one (claimed) example is enough for a "trend" story.

What they're saying: Experts tell Axios far-right extremism within the Latino community stems from three sources: Hispanic Americans who identify as white; the spread of online misinformation; and lingering anti-Black, antisemitic views among U.S. Latinos that are rarely openly discussed.

White Hispanics are back, baby!

And the "spread of online misinformation." Of course, of course.

Notice it's only when Hispanics start voting Republican that the media now wants to discuss "lingering anti-Black, antisemitic views among U.S. Latinos that are rarely openly discussed."

Gee, why weren't those views discussed before?

Because they were a more reliable Democrat voting block before, so those views got covered up.

There is a prevalent streak of anti-semitism among blacks, but I see we're not talking about that, because they're still a reliable Democrat voting bloc.

But then again, quoting the WSJ poll: Blacks are also turning more Republican.

Democratic margins also eroded among Black voters, who favored a Democrat for Congress by 35 percentage points in the new survey, down from 56 points in November. Support for a Republican candidate rose to 27% among Black voters, up from 12% in November.

If that keeps up, we'll soon be talking about the anti-semitic strain of black politics.

And we'll soon hear more about "Black White Nationalism," too!
