An actress is facing a backlash in San Francisco’s Latino community, after she voiced support for a conservative candidate for California governor.
Maria Conchita Alonso starred in a campaign ad for Assemblyman Tim Donnelly of San Bernardino County, a Tea Party favorite who is seeking the Republican nomination.
Donnelly has voiced strong views against illegal immigration and was once involved with the Minutemen Project, a group that patrolled the border with Mexico to catch immigrants coming across.
“Politicians and big government are killing our prosperity, pushing welfare costs through the roof and driving our schools into the ground,” Donnelly said in the ad.
Standing next to Donnelly, Alonso jokingly translated in Spanish, “We’re screwed.”
Being of Cuban and Venezuelan descent, Alonso knows what it means for a country to be screwed by leftists. But unfortunately for her career, her commonsense views are not permitted in San Francisco, particularly among an ethnic group regarded as the ideological property of radicalized Democrats.
The actress was to perform next month at the Brava Theater Center in San Francisco’s Mission District in a Spanish-language version of “The Vagina Monologues,” scheduled for a run from February 14th through 17th. The show is being produced by none other than Eliana Lopez, wife of San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi.
“We really cannot have her in the show, unfortunately,” Lopez told KPIX 5. She said Alonso abruptly resigned from the cast on Friday, given the backlash on the immigration issue.
Alonso compounded the crime of supporting a Tea Party candidate by referring to illegal aliens as “illegal,” a violation of the principles of Newspeak that is considered a serious thought crime in Spanish-speaking liberal circles. Her previous thought crimes include observing to his face that Sean Penn is a “communist a**hole” after he called her a pig, presumably for not sharing his pernicious views.
Work is not going to be easy to find for Alonso. That’s why it is just as hard to find people in the entertainment branch of the establishment who will admit to not being leftists.
