I don’t even have to emphasize or extrapolate from round about comments. The Left lays it out for me.
From the Burnt Orange (far, far left) blog, examples that only the right kind of minorities are acceptable – the Democrat minorities:
CD-17 got 18 points more Democratic, probably by the inclusion of north Austin and southern Williamson County. However, this incarnation still would have gone 58-41 for McCain in 2008. This is Bill Flores’ district, who ousted Chet Edwards in 2010.
CD-23 went from a 51-84 Obama to 50-49 Obama. So this district, which elected Quico “I Hate Cops and Firefighters” Canseco in the 2010 wave, managed to get even MORE Republican. That’s tough news for Rep. Pete Gallego, who is challenging Canseco. Good job MALDEF, making it harder for Hispanics in CD-23 to elect the DEMOCRAT they want over the QUICO CANSECO they don’t.
CD-25, the Austin-based district that sends Lloyd Doggett to Congress and represents most of Central Austin, went from 59-40 Obama to 43-56 McCain. The district is a travesty of minority disenfranchisement — it draws the East Austin minority neighborhoods into a district that scoops up the minority / servicemember precincts in Bell County and wraps up in Tarrant. It’s designed to elect African-American Republican Michael Williams instead of a Democrat who cares about minorities’ needs. Good work, MALDEF!
