Univisión staffer attacks Marco Rubio on Facebook, Calls Him “Token Slave Boy”

It’s too bad Univision can’t even pretend to maintain an shred of objectivity and professionalism [emphasis added]:

A top assistant to a Univisión news boss trashed Sen. Marco Rubio on his aide’s Facebook page, calling the Republican lawmaker a “loser” and “a token slave boy.”

Really classy calling someone names! Don’t you know ad hominems are a fallacy, pendejo?!?!

It’s the latest attack in a lengthy feud between the Florida senator and the powerful Spanish-language network that conservatives charge is anti-GOP and anti-Rubio.

The latest incident began Wednesday night after Rubio’s spokesman, Alex Burgos, announced the high-profile Florida senator would give the GOP’s first-ever bilingual rebuttal to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union speech.

That led Univisión employee Angelica Artiles to let loose a string of partisan criticisms.

“Oh. wow, the loser is going to speak after our President,” Artiles wrote on spokesman Alex Burgos’ Facebook page at 9:33 p.m. Wednesday. “Anything to get publicity. Ask him to do us a favor and stay home that night.”

So she’d rather have a white response? Lol!!

Sentiments like that reflect the prevailing political feeling among Univisión’s higher-ups at its Doral headquarters, say Univisión insiders. Artiles is executive assistant to Daniel Coronell, Univisión’s vice president of news.

The network is owned by a major Democratic donor who has accused Rubio and other Republicans of having an “anti-Hispanic” stand on immigration that’s “despicable.”

In August, someone used Univisión’s official Facebook account to attack Rubio during the Republican National Convention in Tampa.

“Beyond his ideology, Rubio is a mediocre politician who contradicts the values he says he represents. Jeb Bush is more Latino and talented than him,” the Facebook posting said.

Just another sign that they’re really threatened by Rubio, who some have called the Hispanic Reagan because of his ability to communicate conservative values so well.

    Why doesn’t the U.S. mirror the immigration laws of our southern neighbor? Wouldn’t that be fair?
