Mayra Flores Continues to Kick Bootie as Democratic Opponent Steps in It yet Again – Opinion

RedState Tuesday reported on the extreme desperation displayed by Rep. Vicente Gonzalez (D.Texas), as we approach the 2022 midterm election. We also look closer at the humiliating House Democrats expected to get thanks to President Biden’s inpopularity.

Gonzalez has found himself on the hot seat with some uncomfortable questions coming his way after an NBC News investigation uncovered that he was paying local blogger Jerry McHale for attacks on Rep. Mayra Flores (R-Texas), Gonzalez’s general election opponent, attacks that upon closer inspection of McHale’s website ranged from grossly questioning her authenticity and Hispanic heritage to degrading her as a woman and sexually objectifying her:

The response to the original report was a tepid condemnation that came from Gonzalez’s campaign manager Collin Steele who stated that “Of course, the congressman is against referring to Rep. Flores as ‘Miss Frijoles’ or a ‘cotton-picking liar.’”

Though it doesn’t appear any of the major cable news networks here in the U.S. picked up on the story, Telemundo tracked down Gonzalez himself in order to get him on the record. Gonzalez told their reporter Cristina Londono that those types of derogatory posts “would never happen again.” But he then proceeded to step in it yet again when he told her “if someone is offended, I apologize to them,” and then proclaimed that the posts did not come from him “personally.”


Essentially saying “I apologize if you were offended” is not a genuine apology, folks.

And as I said in my prior write-up, anyone who is “surprised” that Gonzalez would be paying this clown doesn’t know Democrats very well. Gonzalez himself has launched attacks on the authenticity of Flores’ heritage. There have been many other instances in recent times where Democrats launched similar attacks on minority Republicans. center stageIn Congressional elections, Jay Chen, DCCC-approved candidate, has mocked Rep. Michelle Steel of California over her Asian accent.

Flores is still standing above the media and is still kicking bootie, despite all of the media-fuelled attacks on her. Flores issued this scorching Gonzalez statement for McHale’s hiring and noted that it wouldn’t distract from her work.

Definitely keep this race on your “one to watch” list. Thanks to redistricting, Texas’ 34th Congressional district is now considered more “Democrat-friendly” (which is why Gonzalez is running in it now instead of the 15th, which he currently represents) so if Flores wins in November, it will shut down a lot of the “her June special election victory was a fluke!” talk from The Usual Suspects who remain in denial about the continuing exodus of minority voters from their party.

Stay tuned, as always!
