The Republican Party thinks Marco Rubio is their ticket to winning the Hispanic vote, but they had better think twice about that. The Miami Herald reports Angelica Artiles, the assistant to Univisión’s Vice President of News, unloaded on Marco Rubio’s aide, Alex Burgos’ Facebook page, calling the “GOP’s Boy Wonder,” a “loser” and “a token slave boy.” Marco Rubio will deliver the Republican response to President Obama’s State of the Union speech. Um, I wonder why they picked him? Pretty obvious. They did the same thing with New Orleans Gov. Bobby Jindal and it backfired.

“Oh. wow, the loser is going to speak after our President,” Artiles wrote on spokesman Alex Burgos’ Facebook page at 9:33 p.m. Wednesday. “Anything to get publicity. Ask him to do us a favor and stay home that night.”


She then used a diminutive term for Rubio’s first name, “Marquito,” and proceeded to compare him to a Disney dwarf, a “token slave boy” and a “fool” who was passed over by Republican Mitt Romney on his presidential ticket last November.

Burgos stopped responding, but others took up Rubio’s cause and attacked Artiles for being a “troll,” Internet slang for someone who posts inflammatory statements to gin up responses. The conversation went back and forth in English and Spanish.

“I see that all the mojoncitos [‘little turds’] have come out to defend the principal turd, Marquito,” she wrote in Spanish. “I am laughing all the way to the White House :).” Source

The problem for Marco Rubio is that there are many Hispanics who see him as just that, a token. Someone being played by the party just to appeal to Hispanic voters. I roll my eyes every time I hear him talking about his immigrant parents, who sought a better life for their family and blah, blah, blah.

    Do you ever take a step back and look at “YOU”?

    When Obama is called names – your vicarious living through him compels you to ATTACK THE ATTACKER. “Why do we need to use such words in civil discourse?”/ “Why do these people have so much HATRED that clouds their vision?” – you are inclined to say.

    Yet there is a FACTION of Hispanics calling Marc Rubio names and yet – instead of you seeking to assign a proportionality to their views – you assume that they speak for the masses and then go on to tell us how you “roll your eyes” just as they do.

    If we look at the US Government’s military and foreign policy actions that CONTINUE – despite what you and others think about Obama – is it fair to say that even though YOU are smitten with Obama because you agree with his domestic policy (and specifically because he is a “Right Wing Fighter” that you can live vicariously through) – in the big picture some force with great wisdom about how you and other Progressive Fundamentalists think understood that when it comes down to it – today we have a “Reverse Dr King” consciousness.

    Many of you would NEVER allow any disagreement with a Progressive President’s foreign policy imperialism to cause a fracture with his domestic policy. As long as he keeps giving you bones to fight the RIGHT WING – you won’t mention anything about his foreign policy.

    You are intent to not make the same “mistake” that Dr King did.

    Obama is the “Token” through which the Progressives fight against their right wing enemy. A self-justification to compromise your own institutional integrity.
