Democrats say playing on the fears of socialism among Latin voters is a modern “red panic” story that armed the American dream.
Four out of 10 Latinos who voted in 2020 are concerned that the Democratic Party recognizes socialism, the Democratic Party’s poll said on Tuesday.
After the death of Latinos in the 2020 vote, Equis Labs said Latinos’ concerns about socialism worked to create a space for voter betrayal.
This allowed Republicans to turn against the Democrats in an area where Democrats often worked well with Latinos by promoting the party as a better side for workers seeking to achieve the American dream.
Although Florida has more socialist concerns, it is not limited to them, according to Equis.
As expected, in 2020, Trump’s voters were 71 percent more likely to say they were concerned that the Democrats were accepting socialism or leftist policies.
Democrats are even more upset that 30 percent of Latinos who voted for Biden in 2020 have expressed similar concerns.
Stephanie Valencia, founder and president of Equis Labs, attributed the worries and fears of socialism to the fact that many Latinos wrote almost no messages on social media, such as What’s App and YouTube.
In his report, Equis sometimes downplayed the MPP’s propaganda message about socialism as false information.
“The indisputable propaganda of these closed media ecosystems feeds the modern red riots and has the weapons of the American dream,” Valencia said.
He said the DP was turning socialism against the American dream, destroying its dreams and creating fear around the label of socialism.
“This is an attack that has become more and more controversial in recent years,” he said.
According to Equis, the most open people are third- and fourth-generation Latinos who receive news through social media such as Fox News or Whats App and YouTube, Valencia said.
Fear of accepting the Democrats’ socialist or leftist views is the highest among Cubans born in the United States, followed by 57 percent of mainland-born Puerto Ricans.
The next generation of Latinos in the United States is increasingly fearful, with 45 percent of Latino immigrants anxious, up from 59 percent of fourth-generation Latinos.
They also tended to invest in the idea that hard work leads to social movement.
Many Latinos still vote for the Democratic Party. Among the Latin Republicans who voted in 2020, there are also those who are concerned that the party is accepting fascist policies.
Studies show that Latins have different views on what socialism is.
Among Latinos, the children of third-generation Americans and immigrants, the greatest concern about socialism was that “the people will be lazy and dependent on the state.”
First- and second-generation Americans are more likely to say, “We’re going to be a poor country like Cuba and Venezuela,” and “The government will tell us what to say and what to do.”
Republican spokesman Jesus Flores said the free entry of illegal immigrants into the United States was a sign that socialism was entering the country.
He cited reports that the Trump administration had made financial settlements with families who had taken their children across the border from their parents, and that he had been convicted of illegally crossing the border.
“We’re the ones who came here legally … we don’t have anything,” Flores said.
The Federal Claims Act allows individuals to sue the United States for damages caused by the illegal actions of federal officials. Some families have gone to court. There were rumors that some families would receive $ 450,000, but President Joe Biden denied this.
Another first sign that Flores is slipping into socialism is that New York is giving stateless people the right to vote in local elections. He said it was a way for the Democrats to change the law to stay in power forever.
Other states and municipalities also allowed stateless persons to vote in local elections, including school board contests. Hiroshi Motomura, a law professor at the University of California, Los Angeles, told the NPR that since the founding of the United States, stateless people have been allowed to vote in local elections.
Calling the GOP a warning about socialism in US propaganda is a way for Democrats to censor, Flores said.
“A lot of people don’t see it. We’re seeing it because we’ve been through something similar in Latin America,” said Flores, a Colombian. “They can’t hide these things from us.”
Republicans have always won a percentage of Hispanic voters, up from 40 percent in some elections. In Florida, Cubans were staunch Republican voters.
But Trump’s experience with Latin and immigrants has taken some by surprise, ranging from calling Mexican immigrants “violent” to a policy of separating children from their parents at the border.
Before the Covids, Latinos had low unemployment. Trump promoted it in 2020, but before he took office, unemployment was already declining.
Unemployment of Latinos rose to 19 percent in April 2020 as Trump struggled with uncontrolled coveting, hospitalization and death. It fell to 4.6 percent in November.
Equis said Trump’s $ 600 incentive test, the rapid development of vaccines, and the reopening of the economy have received more support than building a border wall and isolating families among Spaniards who voted in 2020.
For Covey, the debate over whether to prioritize economic or public health has been a debate for some for the value of hard work and the American dream, Equis said in a report. It also “created a structure for Latin Americans who were previously skeptical to recognize Trump’s candidacy.”
