El Nuevo Herald in fact has been successful as a bridge to help waves of Spanish-speaking immigrants adapt to their new country, while leaving their mark on it. The Rivero columns reflect how we still haven't all arrived at common ground.....and
The 73-year old Cuban refugee, who said he came to this country 20 years ago, violates a national consensus about what being an American is, but he doesn't see it. He writes that Obama is a ''radical leftist activist,'' adding: "All of the U.S. radical left is housed in the Democratic Party.''....and
Rivero, who is an intellectually interesting libertarian writer, loves America, or his idea of it. Still, whatever his personal motives, to classify American liberals as ''socialists'' and ''radical leftists'' is inflammatory and patently wrong. As a result, he is not building his new country that we now share together; he is tearing it down.
I don't recall this kind of scrutiny from the Miami Herald over "inflammatory" columns, or "violating a national consensus" when Bush-bashing columns ran on a daily basis for the past 8 years. I guess that's because they were "ideologically accurate."
