THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CALIFORNIA - This site is dedicated to exposing the continuing Marxist Revolution in California and the all around massive stupidity of Socialists, Luddites, Communists, Fellow Travelers and of Liberalism in all of its ugly forms.

"It was a splendid population - for all the slow, sleepy, sluggish-brained sloths stayed at home - you never find that sort of people among pioneers - you cannot build pioneers out of that sort of material. It was that population that gave to California a name for getting up astounding enterprises and rushing them through with a magnificent dash and daring and a recklessness of cost or consequences, which she bears unto this day - and when she projects a new surprise the grave world smiles as usual and says, "Well, that is California all over."

Spanish-language ad back Democrat in Central Valley race

(Los Angeles Times)  -  A new Spanish-language ad in the 21st Congressional District race focuses on Emilio Huerta's family connection to the district, repeatedly mentioning his mother, labor rights icon Dolores Huerta.

The ad refers to Huerta's opponent, Rep. David Valadao (R-Hanford), as Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's "comrade." Valadao announced months ago he would not vote for Trump.

The Central Valley district is 71% Latino and Democrats have targeted it as a potential pick-up opportunity in the fall.

Here is the English translation of voiceover from the ad from House Majority PAC, a political action committee that supports Democratic House candidates:

"From his mother, he learned that every human being has dignity and deserves respect. The son of Dolores Huerta, Emilio today continues the fight for the rights of farmworkers and working families.

"While Donald Trump insults us, and his comrade Republican Congressman Valadao voted to cut funds for our children’s education, Emilio Huerto continues on our side. For education, jobs and healthcare, Emilio Huerta."
