TIME OUT FOR POLITICS – AS THE CLOCK TICKS TOWARD THE NOVEMBER MIDTERMS.  APPARENTLY, THE DEMOCRATS ARE PREPARING TO LOSE, AND TO PLACE THE BLAME, ONE OF THE FEW THINGS THEY DO WELL.  FROM TOWNHALL.COM: 

The midterm elections are still eight months away but Democrats are already laying the groundwork to make excuses for losses as the writing on the wall suggests Joe Biden's party is headed to the woodshed in November.

In an NBC News piece on Americano, the "nation’s first Spanish-language conservative network" launching on satellite radio this week, Marc Caputo began constructing a narrative to allow Democrats to blame losses among Hispanic voters on "disinformation," a story fed by flailing Democrats in Florida that insults Hispanic voters' intelligence and smears conservatives. Pretty standard fare for the mainstream media's Democrat lapdogs:

The network, called Americano, arrives during a crucial inflection point in U.S. politics, as more Hispanic voters show signs of drifting right and Democrats continue to sound the alarm about Spanish-language right-wing disinformation on social media and local radio, particularly in Miami, which is also Americano’s home base.

A Democrat pollster quoted in the NBC News piece warned that for "those concerned about the disinformation problem harming Democrats' chances with Hispanics, this is a Defcon 1 moment," and Democrats "should worry."

Yet this feigned worry over disinformation was missing during four-plus years of disinformation about the Russia collusion hoax and a litany of other Democrat-planted stories that the rest of liberal media — including mainstream Spanish-language outlets — happily parroted. Univision's Jorge Ramos has engaged in selective reporting that dishonestly depicted migrant caravans headed to Biden's open border. And what about Robert Francis O'Rourke, who decided to rename himself? "Beto" is just more Dem disinformation.

And yet Democrats are pretending that the launch of a conservative Spanish-language network is somehow beyond the pale of what should be acceptable — likely because to them, it is unacceptable for minorities to be conservative:

Ahead of the Tuesday broadcast, Democrats in Florida raised concerns publicly and privately that the programming would contribute to the spread of misleading claims targeted at Spanish-speakers that skyrocketed during the pandemic and the 2020 campaign.

COMMENT:  The fundamental difference between conservatives and liberals is that conservatives believe they have a better idea.  Liberals believe they're better people.  Thus, it is emotionally impossible for Democrats to believe that Hispanics, who traditionally have voted Democratic and are therefore better people, to descend to a lower human status by voting Republican.  Why would anyone do such a thing, when it's such an honor to be a Democrat and be ignored by your party between elections?

I understand that Democratic psychiatrists are fully booked from now until the election, trying to ease the anxieties of party stalwarts who can't believe what they're seeing and feel they're going mad. 

Hey, they've been mad for years.
