YAWN: ‘Hispanic’ Celebrities Pen Open Letter Criticizing GOP Candidates

Apparently all Latinos should think alike, and that thought process should lead them into loathing the entire GOP presidential field.

From The Hill:

More than 20 Hispanic celebrities — including “Law & Order’s” Benjamin Bratt, comedian George Lopez and “Avatar” actress Zoe Saldana — are slamming the entire GOP presidential field for “capitalizing on negative stereotypes and inaccurate information about our community.”

In an open letter addressed to “the Latino community” and released Thursday by the liberal advocacy organization People for the American Way, the Hollywood stars write, “In this year’s 2016 Republican presidential primary, the candidates crossed a line.”

Citing Trump’s controversial remarks on immigrants when he launched his White House bid last June, the letter says, “We must not, though, let Trump’s xenophobia overshadow the extreme policies being pushed by every single one of the GOP’s leading presidential candidates.”

The open letter, written in both English and Spanish, is also signed by “Parks & Recreation’s” Aubrey Plaza, model Eva LaRue and director Miguel Sandoval, among others. “Latinos should understand that Donald Trump embodies the true face of the entire Republican Party. Sadly, he speaks for the GOP’s anti-immigrant, anti-Latino agenda.”

Former “Ugly Betty” star America Ferrera also weighed in via a separate statement, saying, “It’s critical that all Americans, and especially American Latinos, stand up to the misrepresentation of our communities coming from Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and any other candidate running on a platform of xenophobia and fear-mongering.”

Perhaps nobody informed these Tinseltown brats that Republicans have — not one — but two latinos running for president, not to mention one black American in Dr. Ben Carson.

On the Dem side, there’s zero ethnic diversity.

ZERO.
