Love At First Shark Bite for Eva Longoria?

By Javier Manjarres

She resembles one of my “past future ex-wives”– so what. Actress Eva Longoria is “desperate” to mix it up on behalf of President Obama to attract the coveted Hispanic vote into his shrinking assemblage of support. Longoria is one of Obama’s national campaign co-chairs, and she’s ‘desperately’ trying to convince us that her narrow-minded political viewpoint is actually representative of the Hispanic community as a whole.

While it’s true that the actress/model does appeal to many Hispanics on the surface, the only Hispanics that should be giving any credence to her political views are those who have already drunk the Obama kool-aid and subscribe to the usual ‘La Raza’ talking points that the Republican Party is the ‘Big Bad Wolf’ just waiting to deport all Latinos because they are racists.

Look, I don’t blame her entirely- Longoria, like the rest of us is the product of her upbringing. Eva comes from Corpus Christi, Texas, and its Hispanic population is almost entirely made up of Mexican-Americans- or just plain Mexicans who haven’t legalized or naturalized. Eva is of Mexican descent- as a 2nd generation Hispanic, her and her parents were born here in the United States. While this may not be all that important, the point is that she probably doesn’t understand the full plight of the entire Latino immigrant community.

The Democrat Party has long wooed the Hispanic vote by running disingenuous advertisements by painting Republicans, as we mentioned before, as racists. According to the latest immigration statistics, under President Obama, more illegal aliens have been deported under his watch than under any other President, Republican or Democrat. Take those statistics for what they’re worth, but what’s up with that Eva?

Eva speaks of knowing what ‘her’ community wants and needs, yet she has failed to clearly articulate how broad her knowledge of the entire Latino community is that she claims to speak for. Yeah, she studied Chicano Studies at California State University Northridge, just like my mother did, who happens to be of Colombian descent.

For those of you unfamiliar of what Chicano studies are comprised of, Chicano studies is an academic discipline that focuses on “Mexican-American’ culture and history that originated in the 60’s and 70’s and was spurred on by the Black Liberation movement. In other words, it is another racially divisive belief system similar to Black Liberation Theology.

The term Chicano was defined as those who comprised the “poorest of the poor”, but during the Civil Rights movement, this term became a rallying cry for their political movement, as most if not all self-described ‘Chicanos’ refer to themselves as such simply because they do not want to be referred to as either American or Mexican.

Longoria is not referring to herself as a “Chicana” from what we’ve gathered, but it is interesting to learn that she decided to seek her Masters Degree in Chicano Studies as opposed to a broader Latino Studies program that would encompass all Latino peoples- Venezuelans, Colombians, Mexicans, etc.

Now my ex future ex-wife look-a-like is going after Senator Marco Rubio, a first generation Hispanic whose parents came to the U.S. from Cuba. Did I mention that I too am a first generation Colombian whose parents waded through the same immigration process that all foreign nationals must go through to come here legally?

Longoria lists several political issues which to her are trending in a direction that troubles her, such as the possibility that the Supreme Court will uphold Arizona’s 2010 Immigration law SB 1070; the Department of Labor’s lack of support for the CARE Act which would ban child labor on corporate farms; and possible vice presidential contender Senator Marco Rubio from Florida has caught her critical eye-

“Marco Rubio has been coming up with some silly stuff that we really have to sort through,” she says. “So, I’m a political news junkie and all of that is discouraging. That’s why it’s doubly important to me to make sure that the person who best represents America and reflects my values is elected. That’s Obama.

Whether he’s fighting for affordable health care and access to education, or supporting small businesses in the Hispanic community. Over the last three years he’s worked to reform our immigration system to give everyone a fair shot at the American dream. And he’s fighting to make sure people who have brought here children have the opportunity to earn a path to citizenship and contribute to the country they know as home. That’s what this election is about and each one of us is responsible for the outcome in November. Estamos Unidos!” -Eva Longoria (Breitbart)

Eva, call me. Really.  There is so much you need to learn about the Latino culture and what really drives Latinos’ resolve to be Americans, earn their own success, and make the best of themselves without having to suck on the government teat.

    Eva only knows what she’s learned in her coccoon. She can’t articulate a single argument made by TRUE immigration reform proponents because she doesn’t know what they are, being saturated with rich, condescending and insulated know it alls. Sadly, Chicano Studies does not produce intellectuals, only bomb throwers. But fanatics like Eva reach a point of no return in which even when proven wrong beyond a doubt, they CANNOT admit it. Chronic liars begin to believe their own lies and it’s all over at that point.

  • George Blumel

    I’m sure that her Chicano Studies never covered American history, the Constitution’s division of powers, the freedom and opportunity provided by our free market system or any other positive learning. Those Chicano classes like Black Studies, Feminist Studies and other replacements for math, science, engineering, medicine,etc are purely political organizing efforts for the left. She is being used and doesn’t know it.

  • Jeff Wander

    Melting pot?? I can’t believe that there is a Masters degree program in Chicano studies especially at a state college. My grandparents came here from eastern Europe and Americanized immediately.

  • Jason

    Finally, an attractive female democrat.

    • Lowie

      Attractive but stupid!

      • InRussetShadows

        So, not really attractive. For some women, all you have to do is wait for them to talk to realize why they’re still single.


    Liberal insist on grouping all latinos as Mexicans of some sort. It would be equal to calling all english speaking people (including Americans, New Zealanders, Australians, et.) as simply “Britts”.
    Mexicans have bee bread by California liberalism which still keeps most of them in inner city ghettos, working as maids and gardners in Beverly Hills and Malibu. Most latins on the east coast of the US come from over 20 differnet nations in latina maerican , the caribbean and europe.Different peoples, with different cultures, accents, education and political views. Chicanos have adopted the liberal views of their California hosts. That is NOT AT ALL the case for the rest of MILLIONS OF LATINS that are NTO of mexican descent who are majoritarily catholic, pro life, pro family and (WITH VERY FEW EXCEPTIONS OF COMMUNIST-RAISED GENERATIONS) not a welfare- collecting peoples.

    Eva Longoria, like many others, are products of their education.
    As the late Steve Allen used to point out, AMERICA IS BEING DUMBED DOWN.

    I am Puerto Rico born & raised in New York City with over 45 years of heavy duty political involvement.

    The days of parroting nonsense to the Hispanic voter are over and it would behoove the surrogates to refrain from doing so.

    Just one line that is constantly fed by the Obama administration is that immigration reform will be a priority in a 2nd term.
    In the 1st term the Democratic party controlled both the U.S House of Representatives and Senate, yet such reform did not come about.
    Surrogates need to be informed of the legislative process, rather than just be given talking points to be parroted.

    The reality is that regardless of party the game is QUITATE TU PA PONERME YO.

  • The Fisherman

    After reading the above article,I am given pause to wonder if the”values” of which Ms Longoria speaks are authentically American.Does she have any idea that President Obama spent years as a Saul Alinsky trainer,the author of that legendary volume,Rules for Radicals?
    If one is going to seek to promulgate genuine American values, one might be disinclined to work for the re-election of a man whose idealogical hero was a disciple of Marx,Lenin,Stalin,and Mao.

  • Cindy

    Educate her, Javier,. She’s cute but definitely not the brightest bulb in the chandelier.

  • Liz

    Please Eva, do not shame Hispanics like us who have actually studied American History, go read some yourself lady.
    Must of us came to this country to run away from Communists & Marxist, look that up too.

    Mujer mas tonta!

  • BoGo

    Javier, great teaser headline. I thought the article would have a video of you interviewing Eva where she’s giving you “the vibe” (a la Michele Bachmann). Instead, we get treated to your John Lovitz immitation:

    “My wife, Morgan Fair– I mean, Eva Longoria, yeah, that’s the ticket.”

  • Carlos J. Negron

    One question for Eva Longoria and the other Hispanic Obama surrogates:


  • http://TheSharkTank Earl

    How can anyone take Eva Longoria seriously on anything? Or any other Hollywood entertainment millionaire?

  • Mary

    Another hollywood actress doing just that acting….yea she’s pretty but thats about all she has going for her… What I don’t understand is why people like her think that just because she is hispanic that all hispanics will listen to her and the same with colin powell and the black people…colin powell is a turn coat that left his own party to vote for obama because he is black, that makes him look like a fool and I have lost all the respect I once had for him… I never thought I would see the day when people voted for leaders based on color or ethnic background. I for one am white and I love Marco Rubio and Allen West and for Eva to put Marco Rubio down, one of the most intelligent individuals I have seen in a long time, just shows she is all beauty and no brains…..

  • Lowie

    Boycott her new movie. Sorry Andy. Wrong choice for a co-star.
