TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! CRITICS AND TKC PROCLAIM: KANSAS GOV. BROWNBACK CONSIDERATION OF LATINO TOKEN ANGELO MINO PROVES THE GOP DIDN'T LEARN ANYTHING FROM SHAMEFUL DEFEAT AT THE HANDS OF PREZ OBAMA!!!
During the presidential election of 2012 Latinos across the nation proved pivotal in determining the outcome of the vote.
Had Republicans focused more on jobs and stifled their hate-filled attacks which endorsed ethnic profiling of both illegals AND Americans citizens of Latino heritage, the outcome of the vote would have most likely been different.
The failure of the GOP to accept the demographic changes in the United States has lead to an overall weakening of the party and their political ideology.
Sadly . . .
TOKENISM IS NOT THE ANSWER TO "THE LATINO PROBLEM" FOR THE GOP AND A RECENT APPOINTMENT BY GOV. SAM BROWNBACK PROVES THAT HE DIDN'T LEARN ANYTHING FROM EMBARRASSING GOP DEFEAT ON THE NATIONAL STAGE!!!
A great many thanks to a TKC TIPSTER who sent this message our way:
"FYI, this guy was picked by Brownback and his Latino advisor to work with the Kansas Latino Legislative Caucus as a consultant on important upcoming legislation for 2013."
It's really just a sad testament to the fact that Gov. Brownback isn't paying attention to the details of the fastest growing minority in his state that he would work with somebody like Angelo Mino.
Now . . . I want to try to be fair. I hear Angelo Mino is a nice guy but he's got to lose the bow tie and shoe-shine shtick. The arguments of this post could be changed if Mr. Mino stops his "hat in hand" approach to public life and improves his political connections, affiliation and experience rather than just pulling the pathetic and embarrassing "Si Señor" routine on talk radio when Kris Kobach needs somebody to carry his umbrella.
Mino has been propped up by the Conservative Radio crowd because he kisses their feet and says whatever they would like to hear.
FACTS: Angelo Mino doesn't have ANY significant legislative experience or affiliation with any notable Latino agency, organization, lobbying group or political concern with an active membership.
GOV. BROWNBACK, INSTEAD OF DEALING WITH LATINO PROFESSIONALS YOU SIDED WITH A SHOE-SHINE GUY THAT JUST MAKES YOU LOOK OUT OF TOUCH AND EMBARRASSING TO EVEN THE MOST DIE-HARD LATINO REPUBLICANS!!!
It's a symptom of the same problem the GOP has across the Midwest . . . They see all brown people, even citizens as foreigners who are unworthy to share the same rights guaranteed under the Constitution.
There are plenty of prominent Latino Republicans in Kansas and even more knowledgeable members of the Democratic party that the Gov. could have worked with . . . But instead the Kansas Gov. simply proves that he doesn't have an extensive knowledge of politics, people and professionals in his own state.
DEVELOPING . . .
UPDATE: WORD FROM MR. MINO REVEALS HE DID NOT RECEIVE THIS A APPOINTMENT BUT MIGHT HAVE BEEN PART OF A GROUP OF APPLICANTS.
