Skip to comments.Univision Employee Calls Marco Rubio 'Token Slave Boy'

In what has become a recurring theme for the Spanish language network Univision, one of their employees took to social media recently to smear Senator Marco Rubio (R-Fla.). According to the Miami Herald, a top assistant to a Univision news boss criticized Rubio being chosen as the Republican response to the State of the Union.
The employee at the center of the controversy is one Angelica Artiles who took to Facebook to post the following vicious attack:
"Oh, wow, the loser is going to speak after our President. Anything to get publicity. Ask him to do us a favor and stay home that night What makes Marquito a patriot? Youve been watching some Disney movie, not even Romney wanted him, get over it, we won! Tell Marquito to stay home with Snow White and the other six dwarfs. His career as a politician is o-v-e-r. The only reason he is speaking after the President is because most of the other Republicans are smart enough to know when theyve had it. He is the token slave boy chosen to look like a fool, once AGAIN. Makes me laugh. Talk about mediocrity when you voted for Mittens and Ryan. Wow."
Univision, which is owned by a major Democratic donor named Haim Saban, is known for its vitriolic attacks on Senator Rubio. As NewsBusters reported in August of 2012, a vicious Facebook post under Univision's byline attacked Rubio by saying (translated from Spanish below):
"Beyond ideology, Rubio is a mediocre politician and contradictory to the values he claims to represent. Jeb Bush is more Latino and talented than him."
Bingo. You've cracked their code. This should be on the tip of the tongue of every black and hispanic Republican running for office.
Hispanics are like Asians...they hate the other ones. Mexicans hate Cubans, and the feeling is mutual.
I’m not sure if she is Mexican, but I found Artiles in many Mexican articles.
By definition, they are saying ‘if you hang out in the party we associate with whites, or if you take what we’ve define as ‘white’ positions, then you are no longer one of us.
That’s just about as blatant as racism gets, and they need to be called out for being the bigots that they are.
so much for the new GOPe target demographic
Nah, he isn’t a ‘token slave boy’. He’s a RINO!
People need to realize that Marco Rubio is not going to bring in the Hispanic vote. Ain’t gonna happen
The Liberals think he is a token slave boy....Conservatives know he is not one of us
And, although Univision is HQ in Miami, they are leaning more towards the Mexican/Mestizo market, and away from the Cuban (white) South Fla market. They are in the process of replacing some of their Miami based shows with programs from Mexico. Univision is a big Illegal Alien Amnesty supporter
Mexicans “dislike” Blacks, Asians and just about every other minority in the US. If there ever was going to be a race war in the US it won’t be between the Whites and Blacks. That’s a fact jack.
And the GOP thinks Hispanics will vote for them if they have Rubio and others like him in office.
I wish Rubio would contact Univision and suggest an on-air interview with this beyoooootch in any language. Pin her down with a some specific policy questions and get her to tell him to his face that he’s a “slave boy”
There is an Angelica Artiles who has a LinkedIn profile saying she is an administrative assistant for Univision.
WHITEY IS EVIL AND SUX.
I have been saying this here since the first day. There is no “Hispanic vote” because there are no “Hispanics”. It’s a madae-up term. Rubio might be able to deliver Florida, but the Chicanos etc are not going to vote for him. Never.
But Rub is the magical candidate who will turn Hispanics into conservatives.
Four years ago Michael Steele promised to get blacks to vote R, if he got RNC chairman.
Paint me skeptical, always.
That’s her. I’m just not positive if her surname is Mexican or not. I think it is though.
Chicken judge. Let her stand in a corner for five minutes, and then she can walk away. Gutless wonder
That is too much; gracias.
ROFL. I’m saving that on my hard drive.
(REUTERS) Under US law---called the 1966 Cuban Adjustment Act---Cuban immigrants (like the families of Rubio and Menendez) received unique and highly favorable treatment, including (1) permanent residency just a year after arrival, (2) eligibility for a catalogue of tax-paid government benefits-- including Medicaid, SSI, child care, and disability, PLUS, (3) whatver tax-subsidizations they could got their hands on.
Being Cuban is so advantageous it has spawned its own form of identity fraud. Last year federal agents busted a ring that sold almost 50 fake Cuban birth certificates for up to $15,000 apiece to illegal aliens from Latin America so they could obtain green cards.
All Cubans have to do to gain entry into the United States, is show-up at the Texas-Mexico border, show a Cuban identity card and birth certificate. They then bring in families, reunite w/ parents and build a tax-fueled dream life thanks to one of the most generous US immigration laws: the 1966 Cuban Adjustment Act.
Last month Cuba ended its practice of requiring an exit permit to leave the island, and said all Cubans could obtain a passport, potentially increasing the exodus.
Immigration experts note that if living under a communist regime was the criteria to obtain "political asylum" (and the trainload of tax-paid benefits "asylum" brings).....rather than specific "persecution" for political or religious beliefs.......a multitude of residents from poverty-stricken, corrupt misgoverned country would be eligible to board the US gravy-train.
But Bob Menendez is what?
And Palin was going to win women in 2008?
2008 ??? How about that make believe run she did in 2011 and all the hundreds of comments here claiming she would win the wimmin vote in 2012??
At least in 2008 she was fresh and unknown and she had some chance at doing that. By 2011 she was seen as just another Rush except much better looking.
This was the first real sign that last years election would end in disaster. The chasing of make believe candidates.
