This week it became public that Latino Media Network, a start-up led by a couple of young Latinas who made their careers in the Democratic Party, has agreed to buy 18 Hispanic radio stations. The matter became even more worrisome when it became known that the nascent company is related to progressive tycoon George Soros, famous for donating huge amounts of money to the various causes of the extreme left.
Little by little more details are coming out about the move by Soros and left-wing leaders to take over these Hispanic stations, but it is worth reflecting on one specific issue: why would someone as powerful as Soros set his sights on Hispanics?
Hispanics are transforming the demographics of the United States. The Hispanic community now exceeds 60 million people and has grown by 23% since 2010. In 2020, 19% of the U.S. population was Hispanic; projections indicate that by 2060 Hispanics will make up 27% of the population. The future of this country seems to be largely determined by this hard-working and entrepreneurial community, and this population growth represents a large electoral pool.
Florida is at this moment the sample of what Hispanics want and can achieve. A state with such enviable results that Democrats themselves are fleeing New York for Florida in search of the quality of life and low taxes that freedom offers. If you combine a growing population—Hispanics place great importance on family and having children—with the habits of conservative, hard-working people who come to this country in search of the American dream and to generate the wealth they or their parents could not obtain in their countries of origin, what you have is a strong wall against socialism.
For years the number of Hispanic voters may have been higher for the Democratic Party, but when it becomes clear that the economy is not doing well, that children are being indoctrinated in schools with critical theory, and that the chaos at the border is hurting the Hispanic community itself, it is only a matter of time before more and more Hispanics vote Republican. Soros is right to be concerned. Unfortunately for him, this trend will not be easy to stop.
