After uproar, Univision pulls ad discouraging Latinos from voting - Reid blaming ad on Angle
Yahoo News ^ | 102010 | Liz Goodwin

Posted on 10/20/2010 9:42:39 AM PDT by Fred

The Spanish-language station Univision has announced it will no longer air ads telling Latinos to stay home on Election Day.

"Don't vote this November," the English version of the ads says, while playing images of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and other Democrats. "This is the only way to send them a clear message: 'You can no longer take us for granted.' Don't vote."

A group called Latinos for Reform, led by Robert de Posada, a former Republican National Committee official, is behind the ads.

The decision to pull the ads came after a wave of outrage from Latino leaders.

"I think there's nothing more cynical than to encourage people to make themselves irrelevant," Arturo Vargas, director of the nonpartisan National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials, told The Upshot. "I hope Univision makes the decision not to run the ads."

here is the ad http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QKFAiMbm1Fc&feature=player_embedded

I agree, this stinks to high heaven. Any Republican who promoted this needs to have their brain reinserted as it has obviously fallen out somewhere along the way.

Until they start putting “none of the above” on the ballot, staying home is how you cast your vote for that.

This sounds and smells just like something right out of Saul Alinski and his “Rules for Radicals” playbook.

I’ll bet a dollar to a donut hole that Reid is responsible for this one.

Yes there is, imbecil!
Massive voter fraud, dead and illegal voters, ballots marked before voting even begins.

The ad is almost certainly from the left. The MSM knows who is running an ad, they don’t run anonymous ads.

Ok, hate me, but as an ad man.... this is pure genius. Alinsky tactics turned on the left. Imagine the IQ of the person who would take this advice at face value. Would you WANT this person in an American voting booth?

We have a 1st Amendment right to political free speech. Even the speech that urges political apathy. We have all witnessed 40 years of unabridged leftist speech, from all directions and we conservatives are inured to it. My opinion: it’s about time the right engaged in the culture war... we have miles to catch up.

Don’t know if you had an opportunity to work with the so called GOP Latino coalitions for BC04, but these guys were spending all their time at La Raza and Maldef meetings. So as we all know, Bush was/is a pro-amnesty guy and picked his latino reps accordingly...my hunch is that Des Posada is a leftover from these reps.

Des Posada needs to come forward officially and make clear that Angle has nothing to do with this ad and that there is no coordination between campaigns.

“RINO sabotage to save Reid?”


You think that depressing the pro-amnesty Hispanic vote in Nevada would be a *good* thing for Reid’s campaign? I don’t know whether De Posada is or is not a RINO, but there is no doubt that if he convinces pro-amnesty Hispanics not to vote this November he’d be doing God’s work.

We should refuses to acknowledge Latinos and African Americans as a separate group.

Republican’s don’t need to be involved in playing race warfare. Republicans that do are helping the democrats in perpetuating this false idenity War, who’s only real objective is to create a whole group of people who are slaves to their racial identity rather then the contents of their hearts!

I mean why? For that matter why are private corporations like Fox news creating dedicated news media networks? Does being Latino make you unable to read the same news networks as everyone and anyone else? What news could possably apply to just 1 “race” of people?

Do all Latinos occupy a particular region or share a common government in which news worthy and important things happen effecting them exclusively?

Why are we segregating ourselfs around racial lines it makes no sense unless you buy the racist assertion that the color of our skin makes us a fundamentally different class of person...?

What is with this?

We should all vote and campaign against any republican that does anything like this just like we vote against leftist-racist democrats.

Men like De Posada should have no place in the Republican party.

Isn't that a form of censorship of Free Speech? They don't mind running ads calling Sharron Angle an extremist.

I don't hate you, I agree with you. This is why the GOP gets elections stolen from them. The DemocRATS cheat their way to victory; they play hard ball and the GOP is a bunch of wussies, or a word that rhymes with wussies. I'm just surprised to see so many "politically correct" wussies here on FRee Republic. Just Damn!!!
