RICKY MARTIN … ON DONALD TRUMP

Read Ricky Martin’s Blistering Op-Ed About Donald Trump

EnE

By Angie Romero

Latin superstar Ricky Martin has put Donald Trump on blast. But rather than sticking to 140 characters, Martin went above and beyond by writing an op-ed for Univision following the presidential candidate’s very public squabble with the network’s news anchor Jorge Ramos at a campaign press event in Iowa Aug. 25.

The following is a translation of Martin’s Spanish-language op-ed

BLine

Jorge Ramos on Trump:

‘I Have a Right as a U.S. Citizen, Immigrant & Reporter’to Ask Questions’

BLine

“The fact that an individual like Donald Trump, a candidate for the presidency of the United States for the Republican party, has the audacity to continue to gratuitously harass the Latin community makes my blood boil.

When did this character assume he could make comments that are racist, absurd, and above all incoherent and ignorant about us Latinos?

From the beginning his intention was transparent: basically tell barbarities and lies to remain relevant in the public opinion, for votes or simply to stay on the media’s radar.

Yesterday’s episode against journalist Jorge Ramos, one of the most beloved and respected Latinos in world media, has gotten to the point of enough is enough.

Jorge Ramos was doing HIS JOB as a journalist at a press conference in which he appeared freely and democratically, representing one of the most important Latin television networks in the world and with the same right to freely exercise his profession as all other journalists.

But this new character in American politics verbally attacks him and ejects him from the press conference.

This action from Trump doesn’t surprise me, what does surprise me is that as Hispanics we continue to accept the aggression and accusations of people like him who attack our dignity.

Enough is enough!

If we are united for some things we should be united for others.

We have already shown the United States who we are and we cannot allow this behavior.

We have to defeat the power that Trump pretends to have over Latinos, anchored in low rhetoric and xenophobic speech, which his campaign team is convinced works for him.

Let’s show that our Latin race is to be respected, let’s not allow a political hopeful to plant his campaign in insult and humiliation.

Let’s demand respect for those first generations of Latinos who came to the United States and opened a path for us. We have fought for every right that we have today.

Xenophobia as a political strategy is the lowest you can go in search of political power.

This is an issue that unites us and we need to battle it together, not just for us but for the evolution of humanity and those to come.”

Ricky Martin

  1. Jorge Ramos is a hero in my eyes and extremely smart. He knew what he was doing when he went into that Iowa rally for Donald Trump. He was not going to be quiet on behalf of his audience. He bravely asserted himself suspecting full well what could happen.Do you not know that if by some fluke of nature that he should win the republican nomination that nearly every Hispanic person will do their best to get out to vote? Donald trump may as well as given Jorge Ramos the shovel to bury him. Have faith!!

    • I’m here hoping … thx for your support. I just have a hard time when things aren’t fair … which is most of the time!
      Yet … there are right things & wrong things.
      BTW, your comment in “To start the day” … was perfect!! TY … 🙂

      • This is frightening. When I see how people are drawn to him despite his rhetoric I am reminded of people like Hitler. People like to think that this situation could never happen again.

        Remember, a lot of the German folks were mesmerized by this guy. No, I am not comparing Mr. Trump to Hitler but just how when times are tough for a lot of folks; when economic anxiety is high, how someone with charisma who looks like he has all the answers, no matter how superficial can appeal to wide groups of people. This is true even when he is blaming a group of people (illegal immigrants) in this case while promising a solution, no matter how nonsensical.

        I had been thinking that there is no way the republican establishment would allow Mr. Trump to succeed but now, I do not know if they can stop him. What’s worse is that they created him and folks like him.

        This is why Jorge Ramos is such a hero in my eyes in standing up to this guy. It is important that he grabbed the attention of his audience. I DO NOT BELIEVE FOR ONE SECOND THAT MR. TRUMP WOULD HAVE EVER CALLED HIM FOR A QUESTION HAD NOT MR. RAMOS ACTED IN THE WAY HE DID.

        Let’s see what happens!

      • You are so on point, dear friend. This is why this is so bothersome to me. This is scary and makes me feel just like you.
        Where are the thinking, discerning people?
        Remember the brothers who beat the homeless Mexican? This is the kind of people he’s “inspiring”! This is very dangerous … yes, Hitler comes to mind.
        DT is reaching and activating the lowest and the most uncontrolled instincts in uneducated, racists people who have no self-control, no empathy. He’s instigating to continued hatred and separation and then owns up to anything.
        “My followers are passionate”, he said …. he gets the fire light & other do the dirty work. He doesn’t get his hand dirty.
        Did you notice how he “sic” the bodyguard on Jorge?
        This is now beyond a fad or entertainment .. this seems to be a possibility.
        Dems must come out in numbers to vote. Then again, elections can be bought …. I shudder to think about a DT Prez!! 😦

  2. The republican party by not calling out their extremists (racist, crazy, extreme right folks out including DT on the birther issue) and by not having dealt before with the immigration issue in a responsible way, have been the catalyst for this situation. All those greedy CEO’s earning big monies for themselves and stockholders at the expense of average workers by keeping wages flat for over 2 decades while contributing big time to republicans have helped create this perfect storm. etc. etc. This is why I have not voted republican in ages. If DT should win the republican nomination, they need to look at themselves in the mirror if they have the guts.

    • I believe they won’t have the guts. They created this monster and now don’t know who to deal with it. This is going to cost them dearly …. in the meantime, the country’s division continues to increase and “factions” are created … “them against us” … it will take very long to repair this!! Sad …. “the greatest country in the world” no more … 😦

  3. I support the words and sentiments Ricky Martin represents. D.T. should be arrested for inciting white supremacist bigots, racists, who beat up a man sleeping in a sleeping bag out under the stars. They could see he might be Latino, hearing Trump in their pea-brained head, they carried out D.T.’s orders of getting them out of “our white” country. Well, F that, whites are the ones who should be evicted. We stole this country centuries ago. So, Mr. Trump should keep that in mind when he says, those who aren’t from the USA should be forced to leave. Why don’t we start with him. I dissociate from white people like him. He is a disgrace to all people. He should be dropped on a deserted island not near any shipping routes and just leave him there. I am so tired of hearing about him and I do my best to avoid him at all costs. BUT WE ALL NEED TO SHOUT LOUDER TO DROWN HIM OUT!!! jk 😡
