Following the announcement that far-left billionaire George Soros would be spending $60 million on multiple Spanish-language radio stations in the United States, numerous Hispanic groups have begun fighting back against Soros’ indoctrination efforts.
As The Daily Caller reports, if Soros’ purchase of 18 radio stations from the Spanish multimedia conglomerate TelevisaUnivision is approved by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), it will see the formation of a brand new group called the Latino Media Network (LMN). The new group will be run by former Obama administration official Stephanie Valencia, as well as Jess Morales Rocketto. If it succeeds, it would be the single largest acquisition of radio stations by any Latino company in modern times.
On one station that would be part of this new deal, Miami-based Cuban station Radio Mambi, saw numerous listeners voice their fears of Soros’ takeover of the station.
“People who listen to this station must realize that this purchase is an attempt by the Democratic Party and President Biden to silence us,” said one caller on the Monday afternoon show hosted by Ninoska Perez. “We must come up with a Plan B.”
In response to the pending takeover, Alfonso Aguilar, president of the Latino Partnership for Conservative Principles (LPCP), said that his group will be fighting back against the “heavy-handed effort” by the Left “to silence their opposition, Conservative voices.”
“Every time they talk about this effort to buy these stations, they particularly single out Radio Mambí, like it’s a victory,” Aguilar explained. “It’s an institution in Southern Florida with a loyal audience of not only Cuban Americans but Venezuelans, Nicaraguans; people who fled socialist regimes.”
LPCP and other Hispanic advocacy groups are planning to work together in the coming weeks to combat the inevitably left-wing narratives that will soon be promoted on the stations once they are owned by Soros, and to promote conservative alternatives instead. Aguilar said that one such group, El American, will be a target for LCPC’s donors due to the organization’s well-known efforts to engage millions of Hispanic voters in the U.S.
“It’s not just about buying TV and radio slots. It’s much more,” Aguilar continued. “We are talking to major conservative donors and investors at the same time to ensure they put their money in those outlets that can actually deliver.”
Soros’ deal will affect 18 radio stations, primarily centered in states with high populations of Latino voters, including California, Texas, and Florida. One possible reason for Soros’ latest move may be Joe Biden’s plummeting approval ratings among Hispanic voters, who currently rate him more poorly than any other ethnic group in the United States.
