Continuing a long tradition of trying to suppress minority voters, a conservative PAC, Latinos for Reform, has attempted to purchase ad time on Univision running a spot that encourages Hispanics NOT to vote in November. Univison has refused to run the ad.
See the ad here (this is an English version, the original was Spanish):
Lets hope this has the opposite effect and fires up the Hispanic vote. I can not believe that any group would stoop so low as to attempt to suppress the most important right we have as Americans. This is dispicable. I guess I shouldn’t be surpised. This is the GOP of Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh, where it’s commonplace to accuse liberals of all kinds of shady tricks while turning a blind eye to the very antics you condemn when performed by your own party.
Remember: They may have a louder voice on the airwaves – but in the voting booth – we’re all equals. Vote. Encourage your friends and family to vote, even if not in your district or state. Do not let these types of antics succeed.
