This New Jersey Latino Went from Being a Bernie Bro to a Trump Supporter

Yes, There are Hispanics Out There Who Support Immigration Restriction

Contrary to what the media say, there are Hispanics who support President Donald Trump in his re-election bid.

In a story for NorthJersey.com, the case of Marcos Marte, a former Bernie Sanders supporter in 2016 was put on display. As many disappointed Bernie supporters did after Hilary Clinton won the primaries in 2016, Marte left the Democratic Party and instead pulled the lever for Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

Marte is the son of Dominican immigrants and will be voting for President Donald Trump this election cycle. He is doing so because of the president’s economic record before the Wuhan virus struck.  Additionally, Marte cited Trump’s tough border policies and stances on illegal immigration as another reason for why he’s voting for Trump.

“We have to elevate ourselves and I think Donald Trump is the only president that I’ve seen in my adult life that is putting America’s citizens’ values front forward,” declared Marte. “No matter what, we can still get out of where we are and empower ourselves to make our lives better … He is putting that right in front of us.”

While Marte’s comments may anger ethnic panderers, it’s indicative of a larger trend in the nation where Hispanics vote Democrat albeit at different rates depending on their nationality and the states they’re situated in. According to a Pew Research Center survey released in 2018, voters of Puerto Rican and Mexican origin leaned more Democratic. On the other hand, voters of Cuban descent tend to vote Republican.

Latinos are now the largest minority voting bloc in the country. 32 million will be eligible to vote in 2020 and states like New Jersey will have approximately 948,000 eligible voters according to the Pew Research Center’s findings.

Biden is projected to win a majority of the Hispanic voters in the national elections. A Pew report released earlier in October had Biden leading Trump among registered Hispanic voters 63 percent to 29 percent. However, certain polls in states such as Florida show a much more competitive race for Hispanic votes.

Marte used to be interested about Sanders’ free tuition for state colleges and universities plan. But now he finds immigration to be a more pressing issue. He is in favor of president Trump’s initiative to build a wall along the Mexican border in order to stymie sex trafficking and drug smuggling.

The New Jersey Trump supporter is one of many Hispanics who is drawn to the president because of his immigration policies. According to a Washington Post poll, 69 percent of Hispanics voiced their support for pausing immigration during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The media can pipe down about Trump’s immigration policies and their supposedly negative reception with Hispanics. This goes to show that Hispanics will never be the monolithic 80-20 vote that pundits and Democrat operatives want them to be. And that’s great for America.

Lauren Witzke Clashes With Richard Grenell Over His Promotion of Transgenderism; Con Inc. Wants Her Cancelled!

What happened to “America Uncancelled?”

Published

on

Where do we draw the line between what is ‘conservative’ and what isn’t ‘conservative’? Well, for many establishment Republicans, also known by many as ‘Conservative Inc.’, the only two distinctions between right and left are free markets and principled constitutionalism. However, traditionally, conservatives have sought to protect Christian and American values. Things like preserving the family, promoting law and order, and protecting the sacred tradition of marriage between a man and a woman had been the backbone of the conservative movement. It seems as if nowadays, these values have been completely thrown aside. Big League Politics has previously reported on establishment conservative organizations, such as Turning Point USA, pushing transgenderism and homosexuality on Republican college students.

Rather than bend the knee to the left, as most Republicans do, social conservatives like Lauren Witzke have decided to take a stand and say: “Enough is enough.” Witzke, who is the Spokeswoman for Hold the Line PAC, recently clashed on Twitter with former Trump Director of National Intelligence Richard Grenell, who is openly a homosexual.

The whole debacle began when Lauren Witzke replied to a tweet by Grenell, praising the GOP for its inclusivity to transgender people, referring to transgenderism as ‘mental illness’:

Grenell tried to downplay Witzke’s take, effectively saying that celebrating transexuality is a celebration of God, in which Witzke replied that it was instead demonic:

Grenell rebuttaled, asking Witzke if she was ok with welcoming gay conservatives into the GOP. Witzke responded saying no, and that it would be a useless act of appeasement.

Seemingly in an act to publicize Witzke’s wrongthink, Grenell then quote-tweeted her and asked her the same question once more:

True to her nature, Witzke sarcastically mocked Grenell for repeating himself and solidified her stance:

The two would both go on to throw several more jabs at each other on Twitter, but you get the point. Richard Grenell believes that the Republican Party should have no moral stance on any issue, while Lauren Witzke believes that the GOP should strictly conserve our Christian values.

We reached out to Lauren on Twitter for a quick statement and she gave us this:

“The Republican Party was founded on Christian Conservative Principles. We believe in the sanctity of life and the sanctity of marriage between a man and a women. Gay fiscal conservatives are more than welcome to vote for us, but should have no place in leadership to advocate for their progressive ideals.”

Lauren Witzke previously ran as the Republican nominee for US Senate in Delaware, but lost to the incumbent Democrat Senator Chris Coons. Despite living in a blue state and running on a nationalist platform, Witzke impressively secured roughly double the votes as her Republican predecessor in 2014.

After the lengthy and, as of right now, still ongoing battle between Grenell and Witzke, conservative commentator Elijah Schafer reached out to both parties to ask if they would come onto his BlazeTV show to debate each other. Witzke immediately accepted, while Grenell has yet to comment:

Despite conservatives supposedly leading the charge against cancel culture, in actuality a good portion of cancel culture happens within the conservative movement. Although CPAC’s motto this year may have been ‘America Uncancelled’, moderate conservatives still seem more than happy to ostracize their socially conservative counterparts. Many establishment Republicans and friends of Richard Grenell took to Twitter, demanding that Lauren Witzke be cancelled for supporting traditional marriage. Mind you, the vast majority of Republicans were against gay marriage just 6 years ago.

(Tweet by commentator @fadde was deleted shortly after this article was published)

Host of America First and popular conservative commentator Nicholas J. Fuentes called Grenell a member of the ‘Gay Mafia’ and accused him of using leftist tactics to try and intimidate Witzke.

While it doesn’t look like the argument will end anytime soon, it remains clear that there are still social conservatives within the GOP, and the establishment is going to use any means necessary to get them out. As our country rots and decays under Joe Biden, Republicans think that they can just become the left (but with free markets). That isn’t the case. America is not merely and idea or an economic system, America is a nation. A nation is nothing without its people, and America is at it’s greatest when strong family values are promoted by the state and the people see themselves as one nation under God. We’ve included a more miscellaneous tweets from the feud below for interested readers.
