Mayra Flores, The First Mexican-Born Congresswoman, Responds After Rejection From Hispanic Caucus | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Publisher's Note: This post appears here courtesy of the The Daily Wire. The author of this post is Amanda Prestigiacomo.

    Rep. Mayra Flores (R-TX) on Wednesday blasted Democrats' "bias toward conservative Latinas" after it was reported that Flores, the first Mexican-born woman ever elected to Congress, was denied acceptance to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) because she's a Republican.

    The CHC confirmed Wednesday that Flores was denied entry, in part, because she's a Republican, after Townhall first reported on the reason for the rejection based on sourcing.

    "As the first Mexican-born American Congresswoman, I thought the Hispanic Caucus would be open in working together," the Republican reacted to the Townhall report via Twitter. "This denial once again proves a bias toward conservative Latinas that don't fit their narrative or ideology."

    The caucus is exclusively made up of Democrats, and refuses to accept Republicans, including Flores, the Texas Tribune noted. The CHC, the report noted, was originally founded in 1976 and made up of both Republicans and Democrats, but the group fractured during the 1990s. Republicans left the CHC to form the Congressional Hispanic Conference in 2003.

    "In 2003, led by Rep. Diaz Balart, GOP Members split from the CHC to form the Congressional Hispanic Conference. Per our bylaws, the CHC is now for Democratic Members," CHC spokesperson and communications director Sebastian Roa said in a statement sent to The Daily Wire.

    "Rep. Flores' Extreme MAGA values and their attacks on Latinos and our nation's democracy on January 6 do not align with CHC values," Roa added.

    Flores has been on the receiving end of Democrats' numerous attacks, including some centered around her Mexican heritage.

    Rep. Vincente Gonzales (D-TX), the Democrat congressman who ran against Flores for her Texas House seat, paid a blogger who referred to his opponent as "Miss Frijoles," "cotton-pickin' liar," and even more vile insults, according to report from NBC published over the summer.

    Gonzales paid $1,200 to the McHale Report Blog on June 24 for "advertising services." After the payment, the blog has repeatedly and viciously attacked Flores, calling her "Miss Frijoles" over 20 times, The Daily Wire reported.

    "My far left opponent, Vincent Gonzalez, hired a local blogger to run hateful & racist ads against me," Flores tweeted at the time. "But, I love frijoles & I grew up eating frijoles. I am not embarrassed of my upbringings & frijoles w/tortillas de harina is simply the best. Here's to Miss Frijoles 2022."

    Jerry McHale, who runs the blog, has accused Flores of being a "Trump fanatic" and defended his attacks as just part of the political game. He also posted on May 13, prior to the check from the Gonzalez campaign, "Does Flores want Trump to come & take her p****?"

    The blog also included other attacks against Flores, including vulgar descriptions of her vagina and labeling her "Miss Enchiladas" and similar terms. Included in other posts is conversation with a friend who discusses not wanting to spend the night with Flores because of concerns about "rotten p****."

It has been far too many years since the Woke theology interlaced its canons within the fabric of the Indoctrination Realm, so it is nigh time to ask: Does this Representative Republic continue, as a functioning society of a self-governed people, by contending with the unusual, self absorbed dictates of the Woke, and their vast array of Victimhood scenarios?
  Yes, the Religion of Woke must continue; there are so many groups of underprivileged, underserved, a direct result of unrelenting Inequity; they deserve everything.
  No; the Woke fools must be toppled from their self-anointed pedestal; a functioning society of a good Constitutional people cannot withstand this level of "existential" favoritism as it exists now.
  I just observe; with this thoughtful observation: What will happen "when the Vikings are breeching our walls;" how do the Woke react?
