In a tweet issued Thursday, The Hill suggested that Hispanic voters are the bought-and-paid-for property of the Democrat Party.
“GOP sees chance to steal Hispanic voters from Democrats,” the tweet said with a link to an article about how Republican outreach to Hispanic voters has been quite successful so far.

Since words mean things, the use of the term “steal” caught the attention of quite a few users on Twitter. The word itself would suggest that the Democrat Party considers Hispanic voters to be their chattel property.
The underlying assumption of this headline is that Hispanics are the “bought and paid for” property of the Democrats. Only if Hispanics are owned by Democrats does it make sense to talk about the GOP “stealing” them https://t.co/YTqQ5bvSYC

"Steal" … as if they "Belong to" the Democrat party.
This is how the Democrat party thinks about "Latinx" or "Breakfast Tacos" and Black voters … "they" are "our" property. https://t.co/VMTIlyBjgR

The word wasn’t used in the article, however, it does appear in the link, which reads, “https://thehill.com/homenews/house/3558283-gop-sees-chance-to-steal-hispanic-voters-from-democrats/” — Interesting…
According to the post:
The GOP this week seized on a flub by Jill Biden comparing the Hispanic community to breakfast tacos, which the first lady has since apologized for, to help fuel Republicans’ argument that Democrats are not in touch with Hispanic voters.
Alvarez called the comment “disrespectful” and argued that it is “a window into how Democrats view Hispanics.” The Republican National Committee (RNC) started selling shirts that read “Not your breakfast taco.”
The article also noted:
Historically, most heavily Hispanic districts have had a deep Democratic lean, with the exception of districts with proportionately high Cuban American populations, which tend to lean Republican.
But recent polling is buoying Republicans who see a chance to make real inroads with Hispanics amid national frustration over high gas prices and inflation.
Nevertheless, the extremely poor choice in the tweet caught the attention of a number of people:
This implies that “Hispantic voters” are Democrats’ personal property.
I thought Ds had progressed since 1861?

“Steal” because they’re “owned” huh?
— Anthony (@AwwSilverback) July 14, 2022
Are you saying Democrats “owns” Hispanic voters? Sure sounds like it, because you can’t “steal” something from someone if they don’t own it. This is a much worse comment than racist Jill Biden’s Hispanics are tacos comment.

These people think that Latinos are property of the “Democrats”, and that if they vote for Republicans, it is because the GOP is “stealing” their property.
To the Democrats we Latinos are tacos, uniforms, with no capacity for reasoning. Modern day slavery.

Newsbusters‘ Curtis Houck wondered:
Let’s play a game — imagine the reaction from CNN and the like if Fox News tweeted this about white voters

We don’t really need to “imagine.” We already know.
